John Galliano Will Not Take Permanent Role at Oscar de la Renta; Bobbi Brown Named CEO of Yahoo Beauty

And 'Marie Claire' taps Hollywood's latest "It" girls for its May issue.

Galliano Will Not Take Permanent Role at Oscar de la Renta: After much speculation, John Galliano will not take on a permanent role at Oscar de la Renta. Galliano, who held a temporary residency in de la Renta's design studio leading up to the Fall/Winter 2013 collection, was considered a viable successor for the 81-year-old designer. “It is categorically not happening," a source told Page Six regarding Galliano's potential return to the company. "Oscar de la Renta is still looking for a new creative director.” Despite the success of his collaborative collection with the designer, Galliano reportedly was unable to come to monetary terms with the company. “The team at Oscar were not willing to put up the money to pay for the design team John needed, such as the cutters and other specialist support staff for his atelier," another source said. "Money was the biggest factor which held up the negotiations, and they couldn’t reach an agreement, although John and Oscar remain very good friends. John is grateful that Oscar gave him a second chance.” [Page Six]

Bobbi Brown Named CEO of Yahoo Beauty: Make-up artist Bobbi Brown announced on her blog, Everything Bobbi, Wednesday that she will be taking over as editor-in-chief of Yahoo News's beauty section. “As EIC, I’ll work to curate smart, strong content that will teach women how to be their best selves,” she wrote. “Of course, it goes without saying that this new role will never take me away from my first love—Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. I’ll continue as Chief Creative Officer of the company, and am confident that the two positions will inform and strengthen each other.” Brown will begin her new gig on April 21. [Fashionista]

Marie Claire Features Hollywood's "It" Girls: For its "Fresh Faces"-themed May issue, fashion glossy Marie Claire has tapped five of Hollywood's latest rising stars: Lupita Nyong'o, Elle Fanning, Emilia Clarke, Kate Mara, and Elizabeth Olsen. The girls opened up about a myriad of things, from Nyong'o's pre-Oscars nerves—"I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy," she said. "It's not even about the outcome; it's about the agony of the unknown. It's like waiting for test results in a hospital"—to Olsen's envy of her big sisters—"I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does." The magazine's hit newsstands April 22. [Marie Claire]
