Happy New Year! It’s 2014, and we welcome all of you to the first Weekly Wrap-Up of the New Year! The holidays have drawn to a close, and we spent the afternoon checking the interwebs to see what’s happened this week in FashionLand. Sit back and enjoy:
1 – single picture was released for Sarah Jessica Parker’s new shoe line, SJP. There’s been plenty of buzz surrounding Sarah Jessica Parker‘s upcoming footwear line. She partnered with George Malkemus, longtime CEO at Manolo Blahnik, on the project, but there were zero images of the shoes. No matter, all is forgiven and forgotten with this first look at the line due in Nordstrom stores at the end of February. We think Carrie Bradshaw would approve.
6 – The number of tiers on Kaley Cuoco’s wedding cake that dangled upside down from the chandelier at her New Year’s Eve wedding. “The Big Bang Theory” star, 27, and her pro-tennis player beau, 26, rang in 2014 by tying the knot during fire-and-ice themed nuptials at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley. Congrats!
27 – The age Keija Minor, a successful lawyer in New York decided enjoying what you do for a living was more important than the comfortable six-figure salary she had 4 years into her corporate practice. She instead began an internship at a startup travel magazine few people had heard of, but from there rose up through the ranks to become Editor in Chief of Brides Magazine, the first African-American woman to hold the title at Conde Nast. You go Keija!
1500 – That’s how many dollars shoppers paid for a pair of double-monster earmuffs that came back in stock over the holiday at Net-a-porter. And as quickly as they showed up, they sold out…at $1500 a pop…for novelty earmuffs. Ok.
2006 – The year supermodel Lyndsey Scott graduated from Amherst with a dual degrees in computer science and theater. By day, she’s a high fashion model, walking the runway for the likes of Gucci, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Victoria’s Secret. By night, she dons square-framed Burberry glasses and transforms into what is probably the most beautiful computer programmer in the world. That’s right. She’s a superhero.
200,000,000 – That is the amount of money Crocs just received in investment from The Blackstone Group — which now owns a 13 percent stake in Crocs. So that we’re clear, someone gave Crocs enough money to guarantee that they will now be around for a very very long time. Phew…dodged a bullet there!
