In case you missed it.
Jessica Alba's Honest Beauty Launches Hair Care [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]

The latest product category being rolled out from Jessica Alba's billion-dollar business is a line of organic, all-natural hair care that includes two shampoo and conditioner ranges — one for normal to dry hair and one for damaged hair — as well as styling products. Like her makeup and skincare collections, the hair-care line will be under the Honest Beauty umbrella and is now available on both the brand's website as well as at Ulta.com for $20-$30.
KFC Launches Chicken-Scented SPF [USA Today]
Things that should be fried: chicken. Things that should not be fried: your skin. Lucky for us, KFC has made that crucial distinction with its latest marketing trick. The chicken chain just released its official "Extra Crispy Sunscreen" (SPF 30!) to keep your epidermis nice and safe while you chomp fried poultry on the beach. But be warned, just because it smells edible, does not mean it should be consumed. Oh, and we've heard it pairs well with KFC's chicken-scented nail polish, in case you were wondering.
Zara Sued for "Price Baiting" [Yahoo Style ]
Zara is facing yet another lawsuit, this time for deceiving its customers with exorbitant markups. Customer Devin Rose filed a class-action suit in which he claims that the Spanish brand's U.S. stores mark up the prices — which are listed in both euros and dollars — by as much as $5 to $50 after they are converted. Rose stated that Zara adds a few dollars to the converted price, therefore deceiving many Americans who don't know exact exchange rate and who believe they are paying the same prices as Zara's European customers.
Kate Spade Launches Wearable Tech [WWD]

The company just unveiled a hybrid smart watch (compatible with Androids and iPhones) as well as two fitness trackers, each available in a quirky-cute style true to the Kate Spade brand. The pieces, which retail for $125-$250, will be available in November on the brand's website as well as select retailers.
