According to Google, our shopping habits are the equivalent of a Throwback Thursday post. Adidas Superstars, Levi’s jeans and bomber jackets are among the top items trending on the search engine, WWD reports. Google compared online retail trends from October 2014 to October of this year and discovered that we’re all trying to relive the 90s with our clothing purchases.

In fact, interest in bomber jackets, Levi’s jeans and Adidas Superstars doubled from that of last year because it’s obviously still 1993. Other popular items include adult onesies (thank you Katy Perry), toy drones, hoverboards, smart watches and smart TVs. Most surprisingly, there’s been an uptick in purchases of Polaroid cameras and Fujifilm Instax. Next thing you know, we’ll be buying cassette tapes and Walkmans again.

Kylie Jenner continues to capitalize on the attention surrounding her curiously large lips. In October, she posted a lip tutorial on her app that was followed by a T-shirt about the media’s obsession with her puckers in early November. Today, she launches a full lip kit for fans trying to emulate her famed pout, injections not included.

The Kylie lip kit includes a biodegradable matte liquid lipstick and liner. It comes in three shades: Dolce K, Candy K and True Brown K. The packaging bears an image of Kylie’s actual lips with the lipstick dripping over her mouth. Classy. She’s also wearing grills in the picture because of course she is.

Traditionally, the Pirelli calendar features stunning supermodels in varying states of undress. Though one supermodel (Natalia Vodianova) appears in the 43rd edition, which launched today, the new roster spans across age, shape and profession. Pirelli enlisted women like tennis icon Serena Williams, comedian Amy Schumer, director Ava DuVernay and former blogger/magazine editor Tavi Gevinson.

Photographer Annie Leibovitz is the genius behind this year’s new direction. “Pirelli came to me and told me they wanted to shift this year to something different,” she said at today’s press conference. “I made the suggestion that they do women performance artists or women comedians, almost a take-off. I just thought of women I admired and I didn’t let anyone in the studio from Pirelli. It became a very strong set of very simple portraits.” The portraits include a topless Amy Schumer with her rolls proudly on display, Tavi Gevinson fully clothed and lounging on a chair, and Serena Williams facing away from the camera while flaunting her famously sculpted, curvy frame. Images are accompanied by paragraphs about each woman’s spectacular achievements in every arena from sports to philanthropy.

Gigi Hadid Does ‘Next Top Model’ on Numéro’s Holiday Cover (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that Numéro has been seriously lacking in the relevance department lately, failing to bring us compelling covers on a consistent basis. But with the French title’s double holiday issue that closes out 2015, Numéro secured one of fashion’s most in-demand (whether you like it or not) faces. Gigi Hadid makes her debut on the front cover, posing before the lens of photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino clad in a design from Balmain as she playfully tugs on her slicked-back ponytail, looking like, well, an amateur contestant on America’s Next Top Model.

Members of our forums were put off almost immediately. “I suppose, when you’re racking up the covers, some of them are going to be mediocre. That body is not being shown to its best advantage,” complained tigerrouge right away.
