<li>Front-row darling Nicki Minaj has written a song about her experience during Fashion Week, in which she name checks not only Anna Wintour but also Oscar de la Renta. Quoth Minaj: "When I'm sitting with Anna, I'm really sitting with Anna / Ain't a metaphor punchline, I'm really sitting with Anna / Front row at Oscar de la Renta, posture / Ain't a b*tch that could do it, not even my imposter." The song, "Come on a Cone," is a track from her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which debuted today.

The cosmetics line is in its infancy, so there's no price point or release date set as of now. "We currently are working on defining what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be, what they'll say, what makes them distinctive," Jacobs said. "I think that will take some time, but the first meeting was good." [Fashion Etc.]

</ br></p> <li>Simon Spurr, who left his eponymous clothing company just two days after being nominated for the CFDA award for menswear, still hasn't explained why he left — other than to say there were issues within the company that made it impossible for him to stay. But he's still hoping to win that award. "If they don't vote for me this year, they're not going to next year," he said. "It's now or never." [The Cut]
