If you love Rachel Zoe and subscription boxes, today is your lucky day. The stylist-turned-designer’s website, The Zoe Report, is launching “Box of Style,” its own box service which will send out between five and eight stylish picks every season.
Each box will include a selection of Rachel-approved lifestyle and fashion items. You can either pay for a full year of four boxes ($350) or, if you’re looking for a season-to-season commitment, the price for an individual box is $100. Zoe’s people say that each box is valued at over $300, so the triple-digit price tag is way less than a customer would otherwise pay for the items.
The first box due to go out boasts a Miansai screw cuff as well as other mystery items. The subscription is expected to be available for order starting March 9.
In what seems like no time, Kendall Jenner has gone from “Oh, she’s a model?” to being one of the most in-demand faces in the industry. She’s graced campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Karl Lagerfeld and is one of Estée Lauder’s newest ambassadors. Things are going great for Kendall, partially because of the goodwill of Katie Grand, who has taken quite a liking to the young reality star, helping her to book several fashion shows and fill the pages of LOVE magazine.
Grand spoke to Style.com to make sense of the model’s success. “This season, at Marc, we had to make sure her fitting was done in a room with blinds, as the paparazzi had camped out on the roof opposite the studio to try and get a shot of her,” she said. “In all my years being a stylist and working with the likes of Kate and Naomi, I have never known the paps to try and get a shot of a fitting with a long lens from across the street.”
And there you have it, the reason why Kendall is likely not going anywhere anytime soon. Tabloid fodder is simply a currency too valuable to pass up.
In an agreement announced today, Unilever will be adding to its personal care business by acquiring famed U.K. skincare brand Ren in a deal set to close in May. In recent years, Unilever has moved its focus away from the food industry and head-on into the beauty industry, looking to give L’Oreal and Procter & Gamble some competition in the marketplace.
In a press release, Vasiliki Petrou, Unilever SVP Prestige Brands said, “It is a brand with an incredibly loyal following, with a unique proposition that no doubt gives it potential for even further growth, especially given that the naturals category is one of the fastest growing in skincare globally. Its premium positioning complements well our existing portfolio.”
Ren was created in 2000 by Antony Buck and Robert Calcraft with a commitment to products that encompass “performance, purity, pleasure.” The cult favorite skincare brand is sold in 50 countries, in specialty stores and pharmacies. Buck states, “It’s been an amazing experience creating and building REN over the last 15 years but it’s time for the brand to go to the next level. Unilever is a great company with great principles; it has a profound understanding of brands and global reach; it makes the perfect partner to help REN fulfil its future potential worldwide. We can’t wait to get started!”
You’ll often find us complaining that Vogue Brazil‘s covers are dated and the magazine shows zero signs of improvement with its March 2015 installment. The newly-released cover features Amanda Wellsh (who posed alongside Aline Weber back in November 2014 for the mag) captured in some long grass while sporting a military-inspired khaki ensemble. Photographed by Zee Nunes, the Brazilian beauty may look captivating in the wilderness, but the layout reminds us of covers from over a decade ago.
“It looks like the 2000 covers of U.S. Vogue. It’s better but very very dated,” shared MON, who set the tone of the thread.
“Very U.S. Vogue indeed… there’s something off with the proportions imo. Is she kneeling?” kokobombon questioned.
GlamorousBoy also noticed the resemblance. “Yeah I agree, it is very dated U.S. Vogue, with the natural background Photoshopped to look fake,” he declared.
“The face is killer but there’s something really off about the grass-sky proportion. They could at least have put her in a different garment to break up all that green. Nevertheless, it’s always a pleasure to see Amanda!” appreciated Nepenthes.
The remainder of our forum members found positives with Vogue Brazil’s latest offering. “Very U.S. Vogue, but in a good way. She looks marvelous!” noted Miss Dalloway.
TeeVanity simply credited, “This really looks good.”
A.D.C. appeared to welcome the magazine’s layout. “Ah the type of Vogue I grew up seeing. This will always be the definitive Vogue aesthetic for me,” he commented.

Kim Kardashian‘s Hollywood app game made over $74 million last year and the app continues to grow and do well. The success of the game has landed the reality star on the cover of Adweek this week, which delves into how she got involved in the project and the secret to the game’s popularity. The magazine also talks about Kim’s high-profile social media presence (27.2 million Instagram and 29.5 million Twitter followers), namely her selfies, which are the focus of a book she is releasing this year.
Say whatever you want about Kim Kardashian, but you can’t say she isn’t self-aware. The reality star has poked fun at her social media antics in a T-Mobile commercial, but she says she realizes how silly she looks when she’s constantly taking pictures. “For me, what’s so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people—that’s who I’ve been,” she said. “I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it’s ridiculous. I’m kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it’s all fun.”
Well, as long as she’s having fun…
