FSB Evening News: Topshop in NYC, Gwyneth and Elisabeth Design

Ah, where does the time go? Actually, where has the weather gone?!? It’s supposed to be spring and it’s cold and rainy outside. Comfort food weather right during bikini diet season is cruel and unusual punishment.

Topshop Is Almost Here! New Yorkers are salivating over Topshop opening its doors here in NYC one week from TODAY after much teasing. We’re publishing our shopping list here shortly so stay tuned. (The Cut)

An Estee-med Position: Estee Lauder finally has a CEO at the helm after 16 months of deliberation. A board vote on Wednesday elected Fabrizio Freda, the former COO of the company, as the company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer, effective July 1. Freda was the head of global snacks at Proctor and Gamble prior to joining Estee Lauder in 2007. Hey, marketing is marketing, we guess. (WWD, sub req.)

The View On Style? Not So Much: Elisabeth Hasselbeck launched her new clothing line for QVC on yesterday’s episode of The View. After a quick review of the collection, it’s safe to say we will do not share Elisabeth’s view on style and fashion. (QVC)

Gwyneth Paltrow: Fashion Designer? Another celebrity has entered the fashion design ring: Gwyneth Paltrow is designing a capsule collection of tees and clothes. In partnership with French ZOEtee’s, the fall 2009 capsule collection entitled “ZOEtee’s Loves Gwyneth” will consist of jersey basics and, according to British Elle, “some glam, 1970’s-inspired looks and pieces influenced by masculine tailoring.” This we cannot wait to see.
