In case you missed it.
Cardi B Covers CR Fashion Book [CR Fashion Book]
With her talent and off-color charm, Cardi B is slowly becoming America's sweetheart. So it's about time that she landed her very own fashion magazine cover. The rapper was photographed by fellow super-artistic superwoman Petra Collins for two covers of the newest issue of Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book. Zendaya, photographed by Mario Sorrenti, is also featured on two covers. Cardi B was styled in all-black (yet still flashy) ensembles by Alexandre Vauthier and YSL, and made sure to put her signature claw-like manicure on display. Zendaya, meanwhile, wore Prada and Azzedine Alaia.

Juicy Couture to Host Runway Show at NYFW [Business of Fashion]
For its second New York Fashion Week presentation since relaunching with celebrity stylist Jamie Mizrahi at the helm, Juicy Couture is hosting its first-ever runway show. The presentation will take place at an undisclosed location on Feb. 8. Since being acquired in 2016 by Authentic Brands Group, which was responsible for bringing on Mizrahi, the brand has undergone a facelift that includes a higher price point and more fashion-oriented pieces that have won back some of Juicy's earliest fans — including Paris Hilton.
Anjelica Huston to Donate Furs to PETA [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Anjelica Huston has made the decision to donate her collection of furs to PETA. The organization will then donate some of her collection to the homeless in West Virginia (where temperatures are much colder than Beverly Hills); the rest will be donated to Cuddle Coats in Minnesota, which cuts the furs into pieces to use as bedding for orphaned wildlife. "These coats were given to me decades ago, when I had no idea how animals suffered in the fur trade," said Huston. "By donating them to PETA, I'll be giving them a new purpose by providing bedding to orphaned wildlife and helping the homeless keep warm." Mariah Carey, Kim Cattrall and Sharon Osbourne are among other stars who have donated their furs to PETA.
The Kooples Is Going Fur-Free [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
The Kooples is the latest brand to go fur-free. Following in the footsteps of Michael Kors, Armani and Gucci, the Parisian brand has decided to replace all animal furs with faux fur. To celebrate its decision, The Kooples is launching an exclusive vegan leather clutch created in collaboration with PETA. The clutch is now available online for $65, and all proceeds will be donated directly to PETA.
Preview Gigi Hadid's Tommy x Gigi Spring Capsule [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Ahead of the Tommy x Gigi runway show taking place in Milan on Feb. 25, Tommy Hilfiger is offering a sneak peek of the fourth iteration of his collaboration with supermodel Gigi Hadid. From the first look, Hadid's see-now, buy-now spring collection includes the classic red, white and blue Hilfiger motif as well as some preppy country-club chic references — think fingerless golf gloves and crewnecks.
