ICYMI: Today's style news.

Eva Longoria waged war against an Australian reporter today after the journalist reported that the actress doesn't really wear glasses — even though Longoria is the new face of Specsavers eyewear. In her opinion piece, Jenna Clarke complained about celebrity endorsements of products they don't actually use, citing not just Longoria's eyewear but also her endorsement of a cat-food brand a few years back, despite the fact that she did not own a cat. Longoria, however, was quick to retaliate, calling out Clarke on Twitter with a relentless series of tweets and retweets about the fact that she has, in fact, been a card-carrying glasses wearer since 2013. Now you know. [Cosmopolitan]

Melissa McCarthy debuted her new clothing line, called Melissa McCarthy Seven7, today, and a first look proves that the collection is just as fun as the actress herself. Consisting of neutral-toned basics in quirky patterns like leopard print and oversize plaid, as well as tailored separates and denim, the line is, according to the comedienne, "everything a woman needs." Priced under $150 and available in sizes 4 to 28, the collection will be available beginning Sept. 1, with a preview coming to HSN on Aug. 13. [Vogue]

Minus the glamour, the cutthroat world of the '80s modeling scene was basically The Hunger Games, which is why it makes perfect sense that the action thriller's executive producer Robin Bissell has signed on as the writer of a new fictional show about the days when modeling legends Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell ruled the runways. Speaking of Crawford, the supermodel also has signed on as a producer of the NBC show, called Icon, and no doubt will be lending some real-life anecdotes to the script. [Elle]

September is coming — which means fashion magazines' September issues soon will be breaking newsstands under their heavy, hundred-page-thick weight. Two magazines that are getting even beefier this year are T: The New York Times Style Magazine and WSJ. Magazine, each of which broke ad-sales records. Despite worries about the future of print, it looks like fall fashion will be bigger than ever (literally). [Fashionista]
