What’s Rihanna cooking up?
It appears Rihanna is gearing up to once again to shake up the beauty industry. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the mogul and style icon filed a trademark for “Fenty Hair” under her company Roraj Trade LLC. The new hair accessories line could potentially include products such as barrettes, clips, wigs, scrunchies, curlers, hair brushes, combs, and hair extensions, among many others. “Fenty Hair” seems like a natural next step for the entrepreneur, whose business empire already includes Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin, and the lingerie line Savage x Fenty.

Ye takes over the Times Square Gap for the Yeezy x Gap collab
Who would’ve thought that we would ever have a reason to go to Times Square? And, who would’ve thought that Ye would give us that reason? Well, this week, the Gap store in Times Square became the first brick and mortar location to carry the Yeezy x Gap collection. As one might imagine, the Donda rapper didn’t just allow his collab to be showcased in folded piles and color-coded racks. Instead, he redesigned the entire store to fit his own particular vision. This included doing away with the customary displays and checkout registers and replacing them with dark gray furnishings, images of doves projected onto the walls, and touch-screens that allow customers to scroll through the collection. Guess we gotta go brace the tourists and selfie sticks to see it for ourselves…
