Nineteen-year-old Kendall Jenner was unveiled as the latest face of Estée Lauder over the weekend, but what's behind the LA native's sudden rise?
The American model, who is part of the Kardashian family, famed for their reality TV show, will star in a new campaign for the beauty brand and was shot on the back of a motorbike for the print images. There's also a two-minute film, which explore's Kendall's relationship with the brand and her pleasure at becoming "a part of this family." If that's not enough Kendall for you, you can also shop her edit of the brand's collections on a special section of the Estée Lauder site.
Kendall has suddenly jumped into the fashion A-league in 2014. Her runway debut came early this year in the Fall/Winter 2014 shows, in which she walked for Marc Jacobs in New York City and then followed up with the Giles show in London. Rocking up in Paris for her first ever season on the runway, she then managed to bag slots at Givenchy and Chanel (where her big sister Kim Kardashian's connections can't have hurt). She also went on to work with Riccardo Tisci again, appearing as part of an ensemble cast for the Givenchy Fall/Winter 2014 campaign.
During the recent Spring/Summer 2015 fashion weeks this autumn, Jenner walked in shows for Dolce & Gabbana, Pucci, Bottega Veneta and Balmain, among many others, and repeated her performances at Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy. She's also covered LOVE Magazine and American Teen Vogue.
What will 2015 hold for the model? We'd imagine the young celebrity will be popping up in plenty more campaigns and shows!
American designer Michael Kors has launched a new Instagram feature as well as announcing a pop-up in Dubai with a special interactive social media aspect.
If you're a follower of the Michael Kors brand's Instagram account you might have noticed a new #InstaKors hashtag cropping up. It's part of a new project which will allow you to sign up with your email and Instagram handle and have the brand send you an email with a shoppable link every time you 'like' something. It's a tactic that was also unveiled by Marc Jacobs earlier this month.
Meanwhile, at The Dubai Mall from November 25 to December 2, Kors himself will be present to open a special pop-up store dedicated to the brand's Selma bag. Alongside select pieces from the holiday collection available to buy there will also be a photo booth designed to snap pictures and share them via social media. The bag will also be available in an exclusive 'Blossom' pale pink shade, ahead of its global release with the rest of the Spring 2015 collection.
Carrie Lane was born and raised in Montclair, NJ, just outside NYC. At the age of just 4-years old, she auditioned for, and won, the lead of Wendy in Peter Pan. On opening night, Carrie forgot her lines. When she finally found her words, her voice was so small, the audience could barely even hear her. For most, this experience would have resulted in a flood of tears. But, this was not the case for Carrie. The overwhelming joy of simply being on stage and performing dwarfed any negative feelings and in that moment, a star was born.
Beautiful on the inside as well as the outside, Carrie was sought after by the MSA Modeling Agency and immediately offered a contract. Since then she has become the face of Bangz, recently winning a competition for the spa chain’s search for an individual making a difference in their community and who exemplifies the belief that beauty comes from within. The prize was a cash donation to the charity of the winner’s choice. Carrie donated the money to juvenile diabetes, a cause she is passionate about, as she herself suffers from the disease.
Carrie never saw her diagnosis as a struggle, but rather a source of strength and motivating factor to help others through her music. “If just one person likes my music and it helps them find clarity in some aspect of their life, I am satisfied.”
“My favorite thing to write about is the world through my eyes. Nobody views the world through the same lens that you do and therefore you will always have a unique story to tell. One that nobody else has ever heard before.“
In 2013 Carrie started working with TMMA Entertainment. Her team consists of Executive Producers Jarrett Zellea and Jennifer Bernstein, as well as Producer Ron Geffen, and Recording Engineer and Sound Designer Daniel Plante. This team has worked on Grammy Award winning Records and Emmy Award winning Television Shows. The team is currently writing and recording new material for Carrie’s freshman album, scheduled to be released in 2014. Currently, Lane is touring with breakout artists, while continuing to hone her craft in the studio. Lane says of her writing experience, “The biggest hurdle I had to overcome in music is finding my voice and believing that I have one. I never thought I had a voice that anyone would want to hear until I found my inner confidence.”

The Chanel creative director has created five new hats for Maison Michel for the Spring/Summer 2015 season.
As with all the house's hats, the new models -- black rabbit felt and straw hats with black gros grain ribbons -- have got their own names, and Lagerfeld was inspired by his favorite models (all current regulars with the designer's own brand, and his work at Fendi and Chanel). The Kendall features a large brim while the Karlie, Anja, Cara and Poppy models (all reworked versions of caps) come with mini-veils in lace or mesh.
In a 'selfie culture'-inspired move, models Jamie Bochert and Nadja Bender were captured by themselves, directed by Herr Lagerfeld of course, for the campaign, which is supported by the #maisonmichelbykarllagerfeld hashtag.
The pieces will go on sale from mid-February in Maison Michel sales points.
