Michael B Jordan is New Face for Coach 

Michael B Jordan is set to be the face of Coach's menswear line. He's also going to be designing a capsule collection in the future, much like Selena Gomez has done with them. In the mean time, we'll be seeing him in ads and whatnot. PS -- he was also just casted to play a hero named John Clark in two different movies based upon books by Tom Clancy. 

 

Kylie Jenner Raises $$ for Habitat for Humanity

This is very cool. For her birthday in August, Kylie Jenner announced that a portion of the proceeds from her limited collection of makeup was going to be donated to Habitat for Humanity. She came through in a big way -- in just one day, she raised enough money to build an entire home for a family in California. Awesome. 

 

Rihanna Arranged for Ambulance for Models 

This is so cool. There was a story a little bit ago about how one of Rihanna's models at NYFW went into labor as soon as she stepped off the runway. What's awesome is that Rihanna personally arranged for that model - and another pregnant model - to have medical personnel with them the entire time, AND an ambulance waiting to take them to the hospital. And as soon as the model noticed she was in labor, Rihanna rushed to her side back stage and hung with her until she was in the ambulance. 

 

Kanye West Wants to Eliminate Follower Counts

This is the smartest thing I think Kanye West has ever said. He tweeted yesterday "We should be able to participate in social media without having to show how many followers or likes we have. Just like how we can turn off the comments, we should be able to turn off the display of followers. This is an intense negative impact on our self worth." Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey saw Kanye's tweet and wrote to him that they're genuinely thinking about doing this. 

 

Marshmalone Coming Soon?!?!

Blake Lively Hits Back at Critic 

This was pretty cool. A critic noticed that Blake Lively was wearing a lot of suits to promote her new movie, so the critic wrote "It's suit number 1,356 for Blake Lively" and Blake responded "would you note a man wearing lots of suits during a promo tour? So why can't a woman? Just sayinnnn. No double standards ladies." The critic explained that she was just kidding and she admires Blake's fashion. Blake wrote back "Nothing but love…I totally understand the missed humor. I do the same thing sometimes. Just looking to encourage women to do what men do without being teased for it. Yes, even in a space as material as fashion. It all starts somewhere…and everyone's voice counts." Love her.
