Lena Dunham's Punk Puppy; WSJ Pushes Staff To Wear Makeup

and Soulcycle to debut a kids' fashion line.

Lena Dunham's Punk Puppy: Of all the on-air live stream interactions at last night’s MET ball, Lena Dunham and designer Erdem Moralioglu’s chat with Hilary Rhoda might be the best. Not one to persecute babbling women, Dunham embraced Rhoda’s rookie hosting skills, channeling her awkward fumbles into a sing-songy hilarious conversation. She showed off her dress’s built-in “tattoo window” and admitted that her dress only embraced the punk theme because “my dog ate a safety pin during the fitting…which is punk!” [ELLE UK]

WSJ's Makeup Push: Reporters at The Wall Street Journal have been told to neaten up, per an internal memo circulated at the paper. Managing editor Chris Cramer and video department head Matt Murray sent an email to staffers that frequently appear on the publication’s WSJ  live video channel. It stipulates that “neat and professional dress, combed hair and a quick visit to our resident makeup artist on the 6th floor is encouraged,” before reporters appear on-camera. “We want to remind those appearing on camera that you should take into consideration your appearance both in terms of journalistic content and on-air presentation…People are watching—and they are watching you.” [New York Observer]

Soulcycle's Kids Push: Soulcycle is launching a line of kids’ apparel and accessories with a special Mother’s Day fashion show. The famed spinning cult has designed clothes for kids between one and twelve years old that include “sweatpants, sweatshirts, onesies, t-shirts, and shorts.” It makes perfect sense, since everyone knows that one year olds love to spin on a stationary bike. The studio is also launching “SoulCycle lunch boxes, folders, pencil sharpeners, and yo-yos!” [Fashion Beast Inbox]
