This Week in Fashion: Red Lips Are Back, Kate Middleton Wore a Hoodie, and Leggings Outlawed in Montana

The fashion news we’re reading this week.

Kendall Jenner is no longer just Kim K’s little sis. The budding fashion icon, fresh off her second Vogue shoot, is topping the Dazed 100 list and grabbing a cover while she’s at it.

Red lips are making a comeback, according to the Telegraph‘s fashion coverage, which noted that red lipstick sales have been soaring by the millions since 2012. According to Lenoard Lauder’s lipstick index, during a time of recession, women turn to red lips as a powerful symbol of confidence.

A few weeks after Kate Middleton took New York, she was spotted wearing a black zip-up sweatshirt, a stark break from her usual wrap dresses and nude pumps. She still looks amazing—are we really surprised?

It’s official—leggings are not pants, according to Montana state legislators. The Cut reports that the eyebrow-raising new dress code guidelines for 2015 include statements such as: Ladies should be “be sensitive to skirt length and necklines.”

American Apparel’s controversial CEO Dov Charney finally got the boot for misconduct, according to the Washington Post. The brand placed Charney on suspension mid-summer, soon before naming their first female board member in history. Now, swooping in to save the day is the brand’s new CEO, Paula Schneider—yep, a woman.
