Who was in front of the lens for the latest episode of Vogue‘s web series 73 Questions? None other than Victoria Beckham. The former Spice Girl and current fashion designer answered a rapid-fire round of mind-probing questions, from daily rituals to David Beckham, all without cracking a smile.

Victoria leads viewers through her London showroom as she dishes out some surprising answers (Favorite flavor? Salt.) among more predictable replies (Favorite spice? Posh.). The best style secret she’s learned? “Less is more.” Well, we have to respectfully disagree. When it comes to her collection, we’ll take two of everything, please.

Spare 6 minutes of your morning to catch up with Victoria at vogue.com.

The time has come to say goodbye to C. Wonder‘s peppy, prep-centric line of apparel, accessories, and gifts. Yesterday, the brand confirmed it will close all its store locations, followed by the shuttering of its website in coming weeks.

C. Wonder hit several milestones since its 2011 launch in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, including winning an Accessories Council ACE Award for Best Specialty Retailer. Founded by Christopher Burch (also an adviser to jewelry brand BaubleBar), the colorful company found a niche in whimsical accessories and gift-worthy goods.

Until we pinpoint our next spot for a monogram fix, we’ll be missing C. Wonder’s cheeky graphics and hue-happy designs.

Change is in the air for New York Fashion Week. Yesterday WWD reported that come September, runways will swap Lincoln Center for yet-to-be-named downtown digs. According to the event’s organizers, it’s too early to disclose the new destination. However, site theories abound. Could several venues host the seasonal show? And what about Culture Shed, which is still being built?

The world-famous event has also dropped Mercedes-Benz from its title. From now on, it will simply be called New York Fashion Week (which is what we’ve all been calling it anyway). So in February, say your final goodbyes to Lincoln Center and keep your eyes peeled for NYFW’s next home-sweet-home.

WWD asked fashion heavy-hitters to sketch their dream Christmas stockings – and of course, they’re as elaborate as the designs you’d see on the runway.

Lela Rose went for a stiletto-inspired silhouette filled with kitchen essentials to signal her love of holiday entertaining. Anna Sui, meanwhile, went more old-school in her version, using a Victorian boot shape with festive touches of glitter and sequins.

If you want to literally try making one of the creations, Betsey Johnson added instructions to her sketch: “Take a nylon-seamed stocking, add fringe down the back…and hope to inspire Santa to give you things that you lack.”

Since their Vogue cover last spring, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have continued winning the affection of high fashionThe couple’s latest move? Entering the world of luxe advertising for Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 menswear campaign.

Conceptualized by the house’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, who also happens to be their close pal, the ads show the duo posing provocatively together – and looking downright flawless. With no shortage of kissing, face-grabbing, and down-to-there necklines on both parties, Olivier has dubbed the campaign “The Balmain Love.”

The real takeaway here? If there’s anyone that can make a leather hoodie and chartreuse sequins look this good, it’s Kimye.

The rumors are true: after this February’s showsNew York Fashion Week will be forced out of Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, its home since 2010.

The NYC Parks Advocates just reached a settlement with the city after arguing that NYFW’s tents and equipment illegally took over the public space, using the park for commercial purposes. Due to their claim, Fashion Week will be prevented from renewing its contract with Lincoln Center, which was supposed to house the event until 2020.

Although a new location hasn’t been named yet, I have no doubt the street-style stars will flock (#selfies and all).

While making the rounds in NYC last week, Kate Middleton appeared polished per usual. But last night in East London she was spotted looking, well, almost like one of us. The ground-breaking garment she wore? A sweatshirt.

En route to work with a group of Beaver Scouts, the Duchess wore a black zip-up hoodie, J Brand jeans, and tall black boots. She still looked every bit the beauty queen, even without the couture threads we’re used to seeing.

A princess getting cozy in loungewear? That’s a trend every commoner can get behind.

The results are in. And, in case you had any doubts, they’re so last year. What topped the (actual) trillions of searches in 2014, you ask? A quick recap: 1. Robin Williams, 2. World Cup, and 3. Ebola.

Robin Williams’s greatest achievement? The amount of lives he touched with a smile. As for the World Cup, no surprise. It’s known as the world’s most widely viewed sporting event. And we all know what happened as the Ebola crisis took hold.

Check out the other categories here. Or, just Google it.

Chances are Friends has been a part of your life in one way or another. Maybe you swore by Rachel’s obsession-worthy haircut. Or you simply take in a late-night rerun on occasion. But now? It’s about to become part of your Netflix queue. Come January 1, the entire series will hit the streaming site for your binge-watching pleasure.

As someone who happens to be mid-Friends marathon, I can assure you that starting from the beginning is worth it for the style alone. Think slip dresses and high-waisted pants on the ladies. And ridiculously voluminous shirts and sweater vests on the men. All kind of amazing in their own way.

It’s the kind of TV that will have you hoping for a slew of 2015 snow days. Or is that just me?

December doesn’t just bring eggnog and gift giving – it’s also a time to look back on the past year. Sure, all these top-10 lists can be a little much, but here’s a compilation that even the Grinch could get behind: the best songs of the last 12 months.

NPR just released “Songs We Love 2014,” an eclectic mix of pop, reggae, jazz, and more, all on an interactive website. Time to plug in and shoulder dance your way through Friday.
