The couple that consistently tries to break the Internet every time they step out has officially made their mark, as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made Time’s 2015 list of the 100 Most Influential People. As Elon Musk wrote for Mr. West’s piece on transcending music, fashion and fame, “Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t.” The pair is in good company with Alexander Wang named as one of the Artists with a piece from Karlie Kloss and DVF was anointed an Icon (of course) by Jessica Alba. Congrats! [Time]

Carine Roitfeldis taking her eye for style to UNIQLO. The editrix worked with the brand’s design director Naoki Takizawa to curate a collection within the UNIQLO LifeWear concept. The chic selections will include everything from intimates to outerwear – all worthy of a Vogue editor. As Roitfeld explained, “I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them.” [Glam Inbox]

After announcing her retirement last month, Gisele has taken her last turn on the catwalk. The leggy lady rocked the runway for Colcci’s Sao Paulo Fashion Week show with hubby Tom Brady sitting front row to cheer her on with the rest of the audience. The Patriot’s all-star shared a sweet note on Facebook to commemorate the occasion, while the other models sported shirts with her face illustrated on them. The model was touched at how far she had come from her first runway show when she was just 14, writing on Instagram. “I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.” Here’s to the next chapter!

Michael Kors is the brand to bag if you’re a teen. According to Piper Jaffrey, 39% of average-income girls pick Kors compared to 7% percent back in 2012. It knocks back Coach, which moved from 46% to 17% percent in the same time period. Given that Coach is re-branding to cater to higher luxury clientele to likes of Chanel and Hermès, Kors has filled in the demographic influences other consumers. So that's what the kids are wearing these days! [Business of Fashion]

BlackBook is back and better than ever. The glossy celebrated its triumphant return by linking up with Cole Haan for a special screening of its first film, The American Dream Project at NYC’s Gansevoort Park Hotel, which chronicles a cross-country journey to discover whether the American Dream still exists and what it looks like today. Hopefully, the picture is bright and clear. [Glam Inbox]
