Style Notes: Ivanka Trump Steps Down From Fashion Line; Hari Nef Stars in L'Oreal Campaign
In case you missed it.
Ivanka Trump Steps Down From Eponymous Fashion Line to Comply with Ethics Laws [Vanity Fair]
Ivanka Trump will officially step down from her positions at her eponymous fashion label as well as the Trump Organization following the news that she and her husband, Jared Kushner, are moving to Washington, D.C., to work alongside Donald Trump when he takes office later this month. According to a statement from Kushner's attorney, Ivanka Trump will resign from all officer and director positions, sell all of her common stock and restructure her participation in Trump Organization transactions so that she no longer profits in order to comply with ethics laws. Instead, she will receive a fixed series of regular payments. Kushner, who accepted the role of senior advisor to the president, is also resigning from his position as chief executive of Kushner companies and publisher of the New York Observer, which his family owns. Following the election last November, Trump began distancing herself from her fashion label, so the resignation comes as no surprise. She has yet to accept a specific role within her dad's administration.
Hari Nef Stars in L'Oreal Campaign [Instagram]
Transparent actress, model and trans activist Hari Nef is one of several stars of L'Oreal's new True Match ad campaign. The 24-year-old is among a new generation of influencers changing the face of the beauty industry. Model Andreja Pejic made waves in 2015 as the first trans woman to star in a major beauty campaign after being cast for Makeup Forever, and just this year both Cover Girl and Maybelline cast their first-ever male ambassadors.
Beauty and the Beast Nail Polish Is Here [Popsugar]

The polishes won't be available online until February; however, that still leaves plenty of time to perfect your manicure before the movie hits theaters on March 17.
Colin Kaepernick Donates Sneaker Collection to Homeless [People]
Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback best known for his political statement-making socks, donated a van-load's worth of sneakers and clothing from his massive collection to Bay Area organizations that help the homeless. He first showed off his sneaker closet, stuffed with size 13-14 kicks, on Instagram in 2013. Additionally, the quarterback announced Friday that he has raised $300K for various philanthropic organizations across the country. The funds are part of a pledge he took last October to donate $100K per month until he had donated $1 million.
