Anna Wintour ain’t too proud to sit second row. Condé Nast’s artistic director gave up her seat on the overcrowded Valentino Fall 2014 front row to reportedly make room for colleagues Grace CoddingtonAmy Astley, and contributing editor Sarah Mower who was covering the collection for Vogue.com. [The Cut]

Rihanna: badgal, Vogue cover girl, and face of Paris Fashion Week. With appearances, front row and otherwise, at Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Balmain, Dior, and Lanvin for starters, the Unapologetic icon reigns as the omnipresent sensation at the City of Light’s Fall 2014 shows. Her latest coup: Chanel’s “supermarket sweep.” [Fashionista]

Sorry, Kimmie. Your baby sister Kendall Jenner may land that Vogue feature before you do. After walking for Marc Jacobs in New York, Giles in London, and Givenchy in Paris—not to mention taking over Vogue’s American Instagram—she cemented Fall 2014 by strutting for the kaiser at Chanel. CHANEL! Someone has arrived. [Grazia Daily]

Speaking of Chanel, the house’s Madison Avenue boutique in New York City set the record for most-expensive commercial property with a $123.8 million price tag. [Racked]

Our favorite mad hatter is back on the design room floor. Oscar-nominated artist Pharrell and his i am OTHER collective is partnering with Uniqlo for a limited-edition t-shirt and hat range for men and women, available in April. [Vogue UK]

Thrifting is one thing, but vintage is another, especially when referring to the archival pieces from John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, and other throwback treasures in FOOD singer Kelis’ kloset (we kouldn’t resist). Step inside her “woman cave” where The Way We Wore It and Allan & Suzi finds complement enviable, and sparkly, designer shoes. [The Coveteur]

Apparently, dressing in nondescript mom jeans and dad-brand staples straight from the Seinfeld era is a thing. A normcore thing, in which hipsters and their contemporaries attempt to look “normal” by dressing in blank, ill-fitting, opposite-of-chic clothes. Not buying it. #SorryNotSorry. [ELLE]

If you’re still stuck on emerald, you’re late. Pantone declared Radiant Orchid the color of 2014 months ago; for those of you who have yet to embrace the hue, Sephora is here to help. The beauty giant will be offering makeovers, classes, and complimentary look books from March 14—March 16 to help you get on trend. [Glam Inbox]
