FSB Morning Juice: J.Crew, Valentino, Chanel and Katie Holmes' Extensions

Welcome to Hump Day. In honor of the sweet anticipation of the week’s end, we here at FSB declare Wednesdays Guilt-Free Wednesdays. That’s right. Drool over that gorgeous handbag. Try on that gorgeous pair of shoes. Aspiration and desire is what makes the world go ‘round! Here’s the news of the morning:

Despite posting a Q4 loss, J.Crew still sees room for expansion. Now THAT’S optimism, people! (WWD, subscription req.)

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli, the new designers for the house of Valentino, left the crowd underwhelmed with the simplified clothes they sent down the runway. Critics were more impressed with the venue than the collection. Ouch. (The Cut)

Karl Lagerfeld sent very ladylike, slightly prim clothes down the runway at Chanel. Feminine, girlie pinks offset an almost entirely black palette with high collars. Very Mary Poppins with a splash of schoolgirl thrown in. A spoonful of sugar should help the credit card charge go down. (NY Times)

Katie Holmes arrived at the Valkyrie premiere in Tokyo with long extensions under her signature short bob. Love it or hate it? (PeopleStyleWatch)
