Kim Kardashian Is Launching a Beauty Line [Instagram]
Kim Kardashian is launching her very own beauty line, and yes, the comparisons to little sister Kylie Jenner's own beauty empire have already begun. Kardashian on Monday announced Kim Kardashian West Beauty (KKW Beauty) on Instagram, providing very little information about the kinds of products which will be offered, aside from their June 21 release date. Considering Kylie Cosmetics dominates the lip kit space (Kardashian even has her very own shades), maybe the reality star will stick to her own specialty — perhaps contouring?

Victoria's Secret Pays $12 Million in Settlement Over On-Call Shift Practice [The Fashion Law]
Victoria's Secret has agreed to pay $12 million to settle a class-action lawsuit in California over the brand's use of "on-call" scheduling, a practice in which employees were expected to call a store manager two hours prior to the scheduled "on-call" shift to find out whether or not their services would be needed. If they were not needed, employees were not paid. The company ceased the practice in July 2015, just months after the suit was initially filed.
