Fashion News Friday: Revlon Signs Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde; Kardashian Kollection Debuts at Sears

Gorgeous superstars Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde will be the new faces of Revlon in 2012. After successful movie stints and multiple magazine covers for both ladies, I can’t really say I’m surprised. Stay tuned for sneak peeks and photos from the new campaigns on Revlon’s Facebook and Twitter pages. [Elle]

Bad news for Christian Louboutin: on Wednesday, a judge refused to approve a preliminary injunction against Yves Saint Laurent for its recent red-soled shoe collection. Judge Marrero stated in his ruling:

“Because in the fashion industry color serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition, the court finds that Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection, even if it has gained enough protection in the market to have secondary meaning.”

On its blog, the New York Times argued that this could mean cherry soles can start popping up on shoes sold everywhere from the local department store to Payless. [NYTimes]

BCBG Max Azria will debut a new signature fragrance at NYC’s Fashion’s Night Out next month! Elle reported:

“Besides musk, the perfume—which took six months to develop—also includes a sparkling cocktail of fruity and floral notes (think strawberry, black cherry, jasmine, and rose), as well as warm orris and sandalwood. It will be available in fine department stores starting in mid-September.”

Yum! I’m excited already. [Elle]

The Kardashian Kollection is now available at Sears, and thanks to Lucky magazine, you can score 30% off your order with the code KARDASHIAN. Happy shopping! [Lucky]

The Name Game: YSL to Become ‘Saint Laurent Paris’

Yves Saint Laurent has a new creative director. Soon, it will have a new name. According to StyleCaster, Hedi Slimane is changing the classic French label’s instantly-recognizable name to “Saint Laurent Paris”.

Is it just me or does SLP not have quite the same ring to it as YSL? Apparently, Slimane believes the name change will recapture ”the impulses that inspired the founder to launch the Saint Laurent Rive Gauche ready-to-wear line in 1966 – among them youth, freedom and modernity.”

Nevertheless, StyleCaster is also reporting that the actual YSL logo won’t be biting the dust any time soon. You can expect the re-branding to hit right before Paris Fashion Week in September. 

Ladies, what do you think?
