Prepare to temporarily bid your Netflix adieu. Next month, Dior and I will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the exclusive world of haute couture.

The documentary follows Belgian designer Raf Simons in his first few months as creative director at Christian Dior. “I want to have quite a radical approach in terms of modernizing it,” he says of the storied French house.

And since Simons had only eight weeks to complete his first collection, Dior and I promises to deliver the drama – ahem, glamour.

Last year at the Costume Institute gala, which celebrated the opening of the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibitionmovie mogul Harvey Weinstein announced a restoration for the brand being honored. His wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, was favored to take the creative lead, but now it looks like Zac Posen has surpassed her as front-runner for the role.

Assuming Zac is hired as creative director, it would be a perfect fit. Just like Charles James, Zac is known for his highly coveted, celebrity-loved sculptural gowns. Not to mention, it wouldn’t be the first time Harvey hired the young talent – Zac also currently stars as a judge on Project Runway, where Harvey is an executive producer.

If Zac’s recent closing gown at New York Fashion Week is any indicator of things to come, this refresh is sure to be epic.

Calvin Klein Collection designer Francisco Costa breathed a sigh of relief when Lupita Nyong’o’s now-famed Oscar gown was found over the weekend. The pearl-encrusted stunner, reportedly worth $150,000, was swiped from the 31-year-old actress’s West Hollywood hotel a week ago.

But the drama doesn’t end there – the dress is allegedly made from faux pearls. The brand’s reaction? “Once it’s returned to us, we will be able to have the dress restored and archived, as it now represents an important moment for the brand.” Smooth move, CK.

It’s not every day that a fashion blogger has a Harvard Business School case study written about her. But Chiara Ferragni, founder of The Blonde Salad, gets the university’s stamp of approval.

HBS published an in-depth look at the 27-year-old mogul, who counts a shoe line, luxury-brand partnerships, and many magazine features under her well-appointed belt. And it is paying off. Her 16-person team is projected to pull in a whopping $9 million by the end of the year.

Aspiring bloggers – it’s time to hit the books. Grab the case study ($14) and start building your own online empire.

You already have touch-screen access to a personal driver and often-questionable Cupid. Now, thanks to Magic, you’re also privy to a personal assistant at all times. As in, anything you’ve ever wanted, as long as it’s legal, is at the drop of a text. 

Meaning? Manolos on your doorstep, French macaroons en route, and a massage in the books can be yours – for a price, of course. As the saying goes: if you can dream it, you can do it.

Sia’s bleach-blonde wig is generally more recognizable than her face. But recently, the very private “Chandelier” songstress ditched her usual garb and smiled for the cameras.

Now, this reveal is a big deal. While other celebs post selfies and clamor for screen time, Sia has publicly declared her desire to avoid fame. Instead, the singer frequently performs with her back to the audience and hides her face during interviews.

We totally respect her wishes for anonymity. But if ditching the wig means more topknot buns like the one she flaunted publicly, we’re all for it.

Make some room on your bookshelf because Dr. Seuss is coming back. Random House announced that on July 28, it will release a recently discovered manuscript from the beloved author-illustrator.

The book, titled What Pet Should I Get?, will feature the same cast of characters from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Plans to publish at least two more books are also in the works. And just like that, my inner kid is so ready for a playful beach read.

What do you get when you give a GoPro camera to a 6-foot-tall supermodel during New York Fashion Week? An inside look at the life of Karlie Kloss. From Good Morning America to Carolina Herrera, the clip shows us what it takes to be (literally) on top of the style world.

Karlie begins the day promoting her March Vogue cover (co-starring BFF Taylor Swift, no less), then walks the runway at Lincoln Center, all while donning perfect hair and makeup. After a glimpse of her reality, it’s decided: we’ll walk in her shoes anytime.

Are white ponytails and sunglasses the next big trend for kids? Karl Lagerfeld just announced that his eponymous label will debut a children’s line next year. The designer plans to outfit newborns through 16-year-olds, making schoolyards everywhere the new street-style destination.

Something tells us the fashion legend’s godson (and Chanel catwalk frequenter), Hudson Kroenig, may have been the inspiration behind this idea. All that’s left for Karl to do is break into the kitty couture market. Choupette-inspired collars, anyone?
