  • Makeup artist Gucci Westman and Rag & Bone designer David Neville had a baby boy on Tuesday. [FashionWeekDaily]
  • An ad agency is publishing a portrait-book of celebs who have appeared in campaigns for The Gap. Somehow we doubt this will boost the retailer's flagging fortunes, but... yeah. [AdAge]
  • A sneak peek at Kylie Minogue's H&M Loves Kylie collection. [Sassybella]
  • Old Navy to discontinue offering plus-size versions of its apparel? [BudgetFashionista]
