Stop the presses because you heard us right – come next month, Zara will be launching online shopping here in Malaysia. In other local shopping news, dUCk's Kuala Lumpur tote bag sold like hot cakes and you need to check out Malaysia's first Polo Ralph Lauren store in Pavilion (we love the chic interior!). Also, be sure to shop Lisa Surihani's new Raya collection with Jovian Mandagie.

In celebrity news, congratulations are in store for two couples: Jay Chou and wife, Hannah Quinlivan are expecting a second child while Carey Ng and Roen Cian tied the knot in a stunning rooftop ceremony. We also spoke exclusively to two Malaysian women killing the game – Yuna told us why we should go to Lovelifest and we got to know Malaysian model Alicia Amin (also Asia's Next Top Model Season 5 contestant) a little better.

In the fashion world, New York Fashion Week served up incredible shows and a number of designers also took a political stance. What would NYFW be without some drama? This season, Alexander Wang made headlines for calling out Philipp Plein for copying his runway show. Elsewhere, Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 was a lot more low-key, eventhough he did start the show without Kylie Jenner.

For some fashion inspiration, many celebs wowed on both the Grammy's (Adele!) and BAFTAs red carpet (Sophie Turner was #boss). NYFW also allowed us to ogle at everyday fashionistas who turned the streets of New York into their own personal runway.

It’s the weekend, so treat yourself to these organic beauty products, all unbelievably under RM50. Separately, check out these exclusive behind-the-scene images of Lily-Rose Depp's campaign for the Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss.
