Kylie Jenner Falls Ill, Will Miss Paris Fashion Week (Business of Fashion)
Kylie Jenner is sick, to the point that she won’t be traveling to Paris for Fashion Week. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, except this season she was scheduled to present a new makeup collaboration with Balmain. “I’m heartbroken to be missing this show, but I know that my amazing team, and my friends who are in town for the event, will help me be there in spirit,” she posted on Twitter.

Zadig & Voltaire Returns to Paris Fashion Week
After showing in New York for the past few seasons, Cecilia Bönström has brought the brand back to the City of Lights. “I wanted something really natural; a powerful but friendly event,” she told The Daily last month. “I just wanted to do something fun and different.” Drawing from her recent collaboration with Kate Moss, the designer chose The Ritz (a Moss favorite) as the show’s location. Zadig’s trademark rock-and-roll chic stormed the runway, but halfway through the show gave way to more bohemian styles, proving that nothing pairs as well with ruffles and floral prints as badass leather jackets.
Bernard Arnault Calls Greta Thunberg “Demoralizing” (Dazed)
Earlier this week, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg gave an impassioned speech at the United Nations climate summit in New York, calling on world leaders to address the crisis. While many praised her for the urgency in her words, LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault thinks her message is “demoralizing” for young people. “She’s a dynamic young girl, but she’s surrendering completely to catastrophism,” he said at a sustainability event in Paris. See Thunberg’s full speech below.

Mattel Debuts a Gender Neutral Doll (New York TImes)
Mattel is introducing Creatable World, a new line of inclusive dolls. Unlike the brand’s marquee doll, Barbie, the Creatable World dolls are meant to be relateable. They come in a wide range of skin tones, and come with two wigs — a short one and a long one. Additionally, Mattell worked with physicians, gender identity experts, and 250 families to create the gender-neutral dolls.
