Now, Beyonce's younger sister (she probably doesn't like being described like that) is the new face for Madewell. Solange takes the reigns from past Madewell spokesmodel Alexa Chung, wearing the autumn 2012 collection in both lookbook and video form.

Alexa Chung has another collection with Madewell Following up her popular debut collection with Madewell, Alexa Chung drops a sneak peek of her fall '11 line we have been waiting for since we posted about it in March. The images for the collection were shot in Austin, Texas, tapping into her whole American-road-trip theme. Apparently, Chung drew a lot of inspiration for the collection from "girls in bands who live their looks" but judging by the sneak peak photos, Chung has never been on a dirty punk tour. Glamorous, soft and dreamy is the vibe, not a far stretch from the famous Chung look. Peeped on: Elle

"It Girl" collaborates with "It Brand." [Refinery 29] Remember when everyone and their cat was getting vajazzled? Well, if you're not so into the glittery, crystaled crotch look you can always "vatoo" your womanhood. "Vatooing" (or "twatooing") is exactly what the name alludes to: vagina tattooing, except the process is not permanent (the body paint stays on for seven days depending on "friction") and requires a total hair removal pre-vatoo.
