Malia Obama Wears "Smoking Kills" Tee [Yahoo]
Just a few short months after President Barack Obama's eldest daughter Malia, 18, was caught smoking an alleged joint at Chicago's Lollapalooza music festival, the Harvard-bound first daughter was spotted wearing a tee reading "Smoking kills." We can neither confirm nor deny that the cheeky tee was in response to critics of her recreational habits, however another photo showing Malia next to a bong also has surfaced (she was not pictured using it), so our best guess is that the 18-year-old was wearing the shirt ironically. 

Charlotte Olympia Is Now a Barbie Doll [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox] 
British designer Charlotte Olympia, best known for her bold and bright accessories, has been immortalized as a Barbie doll. As to be expected, the doll is very chic — from her leopard-print skirt suit down to her red-and-gold platform stilettos. Accessories include a banana-shaped carryall and a clutch featuring her famous spiderweb motif as well as her cult favorite kitty flats. The best part? There's also a Barbie-inspired collection for humans, priced between $325 and $1,565, available today at Net-a-Porter and BarbieCollection.com as well as Charlotte Olympia stores and online.

Cosmopolitan's Joanna Coles Named First-Ever Chief Content Officer at Hearst [New York Times]
Joanna Coles is leaving behind her roles as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and editorial director of Seventeen to take on a more comprehensive executive position at Hearst. Coles has been named the first-ever chief content officer at the publisher, where she will work with editors to oversee the content of all Hearst publications (Elle, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar, to name a few, in addition to Seventeen and Cosmo). Former Yahoo Health editor-in-chief Michele Promaulayko will assume Coles' former positions. Said Coles of her departure from Cosmo, where she has been at the helm since 2012: “I love Cosmo, but I gave it everything I had. I just didn’t have another sex position in me.” Coles also has a hand in two TV productions (a reality program with E! about Cosmo employees and a Freeform show loosely based on her life) and is writing a book.
