Unpaid internships to be protested during Fashion Week
Intern Labor Rights plans to take a stand during Fashion Week.
There may be many hot trends arising during fashion week, but not paying fashion interns is no longer one of them.
According to Buzzfeed, there will be protests taking place during New York Fashion Week to take a stand against unpaid internships. The Intern Labor Rights, a division of the Occupy Wall Street movement, will be behind the protest. The protest in New York will be followed by additional protests during fashion weeks in London and Paris as well.
"Quite frankly, we're getting such an outpouring of interest that it's growing exponentially as we speak," protest organizer Peter Walsh said of the first protests in New York. "I don't think there'll be hundreds — I don't think it's going to be that big, but we'd like to have a significant presence."

But Walsh says these protests are an important step towards standing up for intern rights. "The fashion industry is a for-profit industry — it's not like they're working not-for-profit arts organizations. They're making billions of dollars and the fact that they're asking their students to donate their labor to these businesses is really outrageous," Walsh said. "We're trying to persuade people and educate people at the same time."

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
