Style Notes: Gwyneth Paltrow Covers Glamour; Kanye West Causes NYFW Scheduling Drama
Stuff to talk about at taco Tuesday.
Gooper Gwyneth Paltrow has landed the coveted cover slot on the March spring fashion issue of Glamour magazine, looking spring-ready in a floral Calvin Klein number. The shoot, photographed by Steven Pan, is accompanied by a lengthy interview in which the 43-year-old talks her new Goop skincare line with Juice Beauty (which is "completely organic ... You could eat it"), being cut-off financially at 18, as well as the nuisance of constantly being compared to other female entrepreneurs who hail from Hollywood (e.g. Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba): "It's so incredibly sexist."

Another fashion week, another Yeezy show conflict. Like last fall, Kanye West's late announcement of the date he will be showing his collection has forced designers to move their presentation times so that they don't overlap with his Feb. 11 show at 4 p.m. This year both Adam Selman and Marissa Webb rescheduled, and to make light of the situation, Webb's PR sent out a cheeky email reading: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are 'swishing' the time of the show to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11. Sorry for making 'waves.'" [Fashionista]
For its new denim campaign, TopShop has enlisted what the brand is calling "The New Supers" — a crop of nine up-and-coming models. Among this next generation are Bella Hadid, Imaan Hammam, Anita Pejak and Grace Hartzel. This wouldn't be the first time that the British brand has spotted a rising star — both Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn got their start with the retailer. [TopShop]
Two Conde Nast titles, Self and Glamour, have joined forces to create "Conde Nast Aurora," a new media network focused on beauty, fashion, health, wellness and technology. The move follows the merging of the business operations of both glossies under Glamour publisher Connie Anne Phillips. The network, which is expected to reach 14 million women, will unite "like-minded" content creators — such as independent lifestyle sites — who manifest the network's tagline, "the power of possible." However, both Glamour and Self editorial teams will continue to work separately. [AdWeek]
