Madelyn Cline covers Cosmopolitan

For Cosmopolitan, Emma Baty interviewed Madelyn Cline; the “Outer Banks” star spoke about how surreal her experience is, considering she went from living in her car to becoming one of Hollywood’s most promising young stars. Cline also talked about growing up in South Carolina, her lip-care regimen and how she’s in a very happy relationship. When thinking about her publicized breakup with Chase Stokes, she said, “I wanted us both to move on and be happy. People see the need for sides. There are no sides — there’s no winning or losing in a breakup.” {Cosmopolitan}

Jonathan Simkhai rebrands

As a part of a wider rebrand, Jonathan Simkhai is dropping the first name, and the label will now be “Simkhai.” As reported by Diana Pearl for Business of Fashion, the shorter name comes in an updated logo font. With plans for international expansion and exploration into other categories, the rebrand will help the label become easily recognizable among consumers. “We’ve been thinking about how we can create a lifestyle brand and better impact the international market. [We wanted] a brand name that would be easy to pronounce globally, and is short, concise and effective,” said Simkhai. {Business of Fashion}
