Lost Your Shirt? Your Cell Phone Knows Where It Is

This week, Los Angeles–based menswear designer Asher Levine stirred up the Fashion Week runways by sending models out in – wait for it – giant rubber bat wings. But it looks like his bag of tricks doesn’t end there. Levine’s next line? Each piece will contain a microchip that’s linked to your cell phone. So, when you’ve dropped trou and just can’t seem to figure out where they’ve run off to, you can call them and they’ll beep until found.

Next up: geolocatable gym socks.

Zooey Deschanel Gets Another 30 Minutes on FOX

We love her on New Girl, and soon Zooey Deschanel will be stealing our hearts yet again with another FOX show: the half-hour animated workplace comedy titled Queen of Everything. The show, which Deschanel will executive-produce along with Sophia Rossi and Ali Waller (who also produces American Dad and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), is a modern-day fairytale about an evil queen who enlists the help of her staff to try and change her ways.

We’re not quite sure if her voice will be starring in the program or not, but as long as that quirky sense of humor of hers is, we’ll definitely be tuning in.

If Zac Posen’s Lookbook Was a Musical, This Is What It Would Sound Like

Ke$ha. Liza Minnelli. Barbra Streisand. And that’s just a sample. Zac Posen teamed up with Spotify to integrate music into his ZAC Zac Posen Fall/Winter 2014 lookbook. Just head over to his Spotify profile to find short two- to three-song playlists that showcase the inspiration behind each look in music form.

Can’t get enough? Good news. According to Posen’s rep, it won’t be a one-time thing. His new eyewear line and collaboration with David’s Bridal will be going up on the music platform as well.

Hello. My Name Is Michael Kors, Billionaire.

Yup. Beloved designer Michael Kors has graduated to billionaire status. According to Bloomberg, shares of Michael Kors Holdings, Ltd. hit $90.39 yesterday. Since Kors, the chief creative officer, owns a 2% stake in the company, this basically means he’s killing it and can now henceforth celebrate February 4 as his billionaire day.

Time to buy some scratch tickets and keep up.

Kim Kardashian Might Have Landed the Cover of Vogue

What Kimye wants, Kimye gets. Which means when Kanye wishes to see Kim on the cover of Vogue, Anna Wintour makes it happen. And apparently there’s nothing anyone can do about it, as a well-placed source has confirmed that the shoot wrapped yesterday in Los Angeles.

If there’s one thing this celeb couple can teach us, it’s that perseverance pays off – which is why I’m adding “Vogue cover girl” to my bucket list.

Peter Pilotto Scores the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award

The most major thing to happen to design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos in 2014? (Yep, we’re already calling it.) Winning the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award, which is the same idea as the CFDA Awards, just based in the UK.

Their clothing line, Peter Pilotto, has been around for seven years. And now, with this honor, the designers will receive $330,000 in funding and a one-year mentorship from the likes of Topshop, Paul Smith, and more to bring their brand to the next level.

Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue and chair of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, said it best: “Christopher and Peter are deserved winners of this year’s Fund award. They have remained true to their vision of a print- and colour-focused brand, but have managed to expand and grow the business to a level where they can now compete on an international stage. It’s a pleasure to be able to support them.”

Guess Who Nabbed a Seat at the SOTU

Who got to see FLOTUS and POTUS live at the SOTU last night? (For all of you abbreviation-phobes out there, translation: Michelle, Barack, State of the Union. You’re welcome.) If you said, “Of course, it has to be someone from Duck Dynasty,” you’d be right. Star Willie Robertson attended as a guest of his friend Rep. Vance McAllister of Louisiana. Yep. Wonder if he brought his duck call.

JLaw & Christian Dior: The Actress Adds 3 More Years to Her Contract

Jennifer Lawrence has been spotted on every red carpet in Christian Dior – and there’s plenty more to come. According to E! News, the American Hustle actress has reportedly extended her contract with the French fashion label for three years and $15 million. If only we could get paid to dazzle in haute couture, too…

Lena Dunham Inspires a $10K Campaign for Women’s Empowerment

Is there anything the Girls creator can’t inspire? We didn’t think so.

In the wake of last week’s controversy in which Jezebel offered $10,000 for Lena Dunham’s untouched Vogue photos, a new (much more positive) idea arose. An Indiegogo campaign is now seeking to counter the obscene proposition by raising $10,000 for none other than women’s empowerment. The donation, which is set to go to Step Up Women’s Network, is already nearly half raised – and there’s still 25 more days to go. Now this is one cause we can get behind.

Brad Pitt’s Hair Evolution Rivals Jen’s

Why should Jennifer Aniston have all the hair fun? The country’s abuzz with talk of Brad’s recent close crop – shorn short on the sides and slicked back on top – which he debuted at the SAG Awards. Apparently the cut’s for his role in upcoming WWII flick, Fury, but I’m hoping it sticks around. (It could grow into a really interesting reverse mullet.)
