Looks like W magazine enjoyed a bit of a facelift over the weekend. The website now boasts a fresh new look—the first update in over two and a half years. What Stefano Tonchi describes as a collage of images looks quite like a version of the Pinterest model, playing into the ADD mentality of readers today. [WWD]

Kate Moss is using her popularity (and posing capacity) for a good cause. The supermodel teamed up with Life in My Shoes, an interactive art show that’s raising money for young people who are suffering from HIV. Noted fashion photographer, Rankin, shot both Moss and those with the disease, aiming to change the face of the illness. [Telegraph]

Was Kanye West‘s Yeezus on repeat during your weekend? If you’re paying close attention to the lyrics, here’s an interesting tidbit to note.
