Zoolander for Mario Testino's Towel Series

Mondaze.

When it comes to committing to high fashion, the Zoolander cast goes all in. First Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) crashed Valentino's fall 2015 runway show, and now Zoolander himself has landed a coveted spot in Mario Testino's Towel Series, which has featured everyone from Naomi Campbell to Gigi Hadid and every supermodel in between. Zoolander cheated a bit by wearing a white leather vest in addition to his towel, but we won't hold it against him. [Instagram]   
 
Tory Burch is making some serious business changes. The designer laid off about 100 employees last week and, according to sources, the company is restructuring its business and investing in new ventures, including its recently launched athleisure line Tory Sport, fragrances and watches, as well as new digital initiatives and "customer-facing technology." The layoffs accounted for about 3 percent of the company's total staff. [WWD]

Popular hair-care brand Wen by Chaz Dean is facing a lawsuit following allegations that the company's products cause hair loss. The Guthy-Renker-owned line, perhaps best known for its late-night infomericals, is being sued in a class action lawsuit by more than 200 women across 40 states who are reporting not only that the line caused baldness, but also that the company blocked negative reviews and Facebook comments. However, the company is denying the allegations, citing a lack of scientific evidence, and it may be very difficult to prove that the hair loss is linked to the product. [Racked]
 
Kylie Jenner's uber-popular Lip Kit by Kylie was restocked at 9 a.m. PT this morning, and — surprise! — it sold out again in record time. Didn't get your hands on one? There's always eBay, where the product is selling at the bargain price of $500. [Instagram]
