Reese Witherspoon Pens Essay About Female Ambition for Glamour [Glamour]
Actress, producer and lifestyle brand entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon was photographed by Emma Summerton for the October issue of Glamour wearing an Aritzia one-piece and a Miu Miu fur coat. However, rather than participate in a traditional profile, as she has done countless times over her career, the Home Again star penned a heartfelt essay about encouraging ambition in young girls. She included stats from her own experience working with and portraying women for the screen, writing, "Big Little Lies featured five actresses who were 25 to 50 years old, and 8.5 million people on average watched each episode. We had a pretty gender-balanced audience too, proving men are interested in women’s lives."
“We have to do our part to change the idea that a woman with passion and ambition is out for herself.” We asked Reese Witherspoon to give us a serious pep talk on the power of female ambition. She delivered. Click the #linkinbio to read her heartfelt essay. (: @emmasummerton; styling: @jilliandavison; hair: @lonavigi; makeup: @mollyrstern)

Yeezy Season 6 Returning to New York Fashion Week [Twitter]
Kanye West will be returning to New York Fashion Week to present Yeezy Season 6. It's unclear when the show will take place though. According to Yeezy Mafia's Twitter account, the presentation will be announced only "24 hours before the show." When one follower asked if the presentation was going to happen on Wednesday, the first day of NYFW, the response was a "No." In February, invitations were delivered to editors the night before the show. Let's hope Yeezy Season 6 will remain as chill as last season.
