Gwyneth Paltrow is making moves in the beauty world, crossing over from being the face of brands to being the investor and Creative Director of Makeup for Juice Beauty. Following a recent investment in Blo Blow Dry Bar, the Goop founder who famously told us to steam our lady parts has teamed up with Karen Behnke, the founder of Juice Beauty, to bring us organic skincare and makeup.

Paltrow tells WWD, “In my own life, I don’t have a [beauty] product that is as luxurious and high performing as it is clean,” admitted Paltrow. “I’m very aware of the toxicity in our products that we use all the time. I still use a lot of them because they work, whether it’s shampoo or mascara.”

The 5-year deal between Behnke and Paltrow makes sense because Behnke is a Goop investor and says, “It was really important to me to not just hire a face or do an endorsement type of deal. It was more important for me to align goals and values and find a true business partner.”

The skincare products are already sold at Whole Foods and Ulta, among other retailers and the makeup range is set to debut later this year. It will consist of 75 pieces for eyes, lips, cheeks and face with retail pricing between $24 at $49.

John B. Fairchild, the Man Who Turned Around WWD, Dies

The publishing industry suffered a loss this morning with the announcement that John B. Fairchild has passed away at the age of 87. Serving as the head of Fairchild Publications, Inc., he took control of Women’s Wear Daily‎ in 1960 and turned the publication from a simple trade to a major force in the fashion industry.

Fairchild ran his family namesake company until 1997 and according to Vanity Fair is credited with coining the terms “the ladies who lunch,” “Jackie O” and more. Fairchild was known for his tendency to shake things up and spark a bit of controversy. He started beefs with design houses like Balenciaga and Givenchy in his time as WWD‘s European director, back in the day when magazines like Vogue were given preference for exclusives. When he landed in New York to head the publication stateside, it was his insistence on shining a light on designers and society figures — many times throwing a huge serving of shade their way — that helped put the publication in an entirely new league.

Fairchild will be remembered for transforming WWD and will live on as a legend in the industry.

Kristen Stewart Lands Yet Another Chanel Campaign (Forum Buzz)

After landing the campaign for Chanel’s Paris-Dallas collection, sitting front row at the label’s shows and appearing as the new face of its latest handbag campaign, it’s clear that Kristen Stewart is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorites. Shot by the designer in his Paris-based studio against his signature dark gray backdrop, Kristen sports a timeless Chanel jacket with matching pants teamed with a white tee. But the focal point of the campaign is the iconic French fashion house’s latest coveted accessory — the 11.12 handbag, pictured here in black lambskin leather.

At first, our forums were treated to an exclusive preview of the ads. Forum member Slater didn’t get us off on a positive note: “Can Karl stop already… Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel must be fuming from her grave.” Is the shot of Kristen really that bad?

Melancholybaby soon fired back: “She was a terrible human being so who cares what she’s doing in her grave about a talentless actress fronting a campaign for her house?” Ouch!

“Haha, that’s exactly what I was thinking…” added la veronika in agreement.

“Really? Can she sell anything?” asked narcyza, questioning if the actress will even shift merchandise.

The rest were left unsure. “Kristen isn’t the best, but surely she’s better than the Charlotte Frees and Alice Dellals of this world. This image looks good, but her hair is a mess as usual,” exclaimed Benn98.

Steddycam91 was uncertain, too: “I’m on the fence about this. On the one hand, Kristen looks pretty, relaxed and chic. But it’s also quite… generic? She’s just been made to look like a mini-Carine with her artfully disheveled hair and slight pout and classic jacket. She just kind of blends in. Nice but forgettable. However, I’ll happily take that over the Karl photographic monstrosities we’ve seen of late.”

Nasty Gal Gets a $16 Million Investment

Nasty Gal’s board of directors just got a high-profile new member. Ron Johnson, former Apple exec, has made a $16 million investment in the retailer. It is some much-needed good news for the company, which has been struggling with layoffs this year and the recent announcement that founder Sophia Amoruso was handing over the company‘s CEO title to Sheree Waterson.

The investment is significantly less than the $40 million boost it got back in 2012, but the #GirlBoss says that’s because she is taking things slowly this time, saying the retailer doesn’t have “an aggressive rollout” planned. A new store is expected to open next month, but beyond that, it depends on how this second store performs. “We want to get another one open, learn a lot and then hopefully destroy everyone.”

It seems wise for Amoruso to proceed with caution into brick-and-mortar. As we’ve learned with brands like American Apparel and C. Wonder, when you open up too many stores too quickly, it can be more of a burden than a boon.

Margot Robbie’s makeout sesh with Will Smith wasn’t her only beneficiary while filming Focus. The Australian actress got to wear a mix of high-end designers on-set, and loved every minute of dabbling in pieces from Gucci to Givenchy.

By now you might’ve seen the trailer, or the film if you’re in a country where it’s been released already, and probably spent the entire duration drooling over Margot’s, or rather her character Jess’, chic, expensive wardrobe. (more…)
