Style Notes: The Kardashian-Jenners Debut New Apps; Conde Nast Appoints New CEO
Your Monday fashion update.
Kontrol yourself — the long-awaited Kardashian-Jenner apps and websites, which promise everything from beauty tutorials (Kim and Kylie) to dating advice (Khloe) to family life updates (Kourtney and Kendall), are finally upon us. But there's a small catch. Access to all the kontent comes at a price, and though it's a small one ($2.99 per month for access to the sisters' separate apps), it's another subscription fee nonetheless. The welcome video on Kim's site promises to be worth it, however, with even more behind-the-scenes photos of her family and friends (as if her Instagram feed and Selfish — remember that book dedicated to intimate photos of Kim? — weren't enough), while the other sisters' apps also promise more first-person experiences, such as cleaning out Kendall's Kloset and proving Kylie Jenner is 100 percent real. Necessary. [Twitter]

Kanye just pulled the ultimate Kanye and announced a last-minute fashion show happening this Wednesday — and some in the fashion industry are not too happy. Specifically, designers Anne Bowen and Naeem Khan, who were scheduled to show at the same time. Bowen, who was forced to move her show date due to the swarm of editors inevitably headed to Yeezy Season 2, said of the matter: "Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this." [WWD]
Stop the presses. Duchess Kate Middleton, the trendsetting royal best known for her ability to sell out a product within minutes of wearing it, may have started a new frenzy. Over the weekend, Middleton debuted a brand-new, daring 'do — bangs! Well, they're kind of bangs (or fringe, as she probably refers to them). Regardless, the long, wispy, face-framing layers are sure to inspire a host of copycats. Perhaps the "Kate" is the new "Rachel?" [Vanity Fair]
