H&M Conscious Exclusive Glamour Collection

H&M has created an exclusive collection of red-carpet looks, all made from more sustainable materials such as organic cotton and hemp as well as recycled polyester. The Exclusive Conscious collection will be available from April 12 in around 100 stores worldwide. H&M is easing into e-commerce, which should be coming in September. Currently the fast-fashion giant is selling looks from the new TV show Fashion Star. I think I'm more excited about the prospect of being able to shop H&M online than I am these red carpet looks, although a few of them are definitely eye-catching.

UPDATE 3/21: The Glamour Collection will only be available in stores, not online.

Vera Wang Beauty for Kohl's

Vera Wang is bringing a line of cosmetics to Kohl's, where the designer already has a successful fashion line. The Simply Vera Vera Wang Cosmetics line will include 74 products priced from $16.50 to $39.50, reports WWD.

I'm really surprised the price points are so high, even though I'm sure it'll go on sale within a week or so of launching. I'd rather buy M.A.C. or something if I'm going to spend $20 on a lipgloss.

Look for the line in Kohl's stores and online starting next month. Will you be purchasing?
