The rumor mill has been swirling, but the powers that be at Coty and Prada Group finally confirmed that Miu Miu is set to launch a fragrance line in 2015. The question that remains: What will it smell like? Will it be a girly classic with a dark twist? Something both cat ladies and the fashion set will appreciate (like the coats in the Spring 2014 collection)? Will there be a hint of patent leather to represent the Mary Janes that appear on the runway season after season? Whatever it is, we can’t wait.

Along with the news of Blake Lively joining the L’Oréal Paris family, the beauty brand announced that it inked a deal with a far less glamorous partner—New York’s MTA. Launching today at the Bryant Park subway station, you’ll find a computerized vending machine that scans your ensemble and chooses colors based upon what you’re wearing. Who knew public transportation could be so discerning? [The Cut] caught up with menswear model Elliott Sailors—a blond bombshell who traded bathing suits, for, well, just suits. Her androgynous look does cause confusion at some castings, but her Boardwalk Empire-inspired cropped cut has made her more “approachable.” She told the glossy: “Before, as a tall blond girl in Manhattan, people sort of put me in a box and thought, I know what those girls are like. And now they’re coming up to me and having conversations, posing questions.” Joining the boys’ club has its perks.
