EVERYWHERE—No matter where you stand on naming a nail polish after a town famous for horrific violence against women, you have to be sort of glad the "Juarez" polish in Rodarte's MAC collection inspired the Cut to create this amusing slideshow of other potentially offensive nail polish names. Bonus: Apparently there's an entire blog devoted to the topic! [The Cut; Stupid Nail Polish Names]

EVERYWHERE—We've always loved Malia Mills for her approach to swimwear, which is all about making customers comfortable and happy in their own bodies. So it's not a huge surprise to hear that her latest addition to the collection was inspired by a shopper who asked for a bit more support in her bikini tops. The new style comes in size DD/E, with underwire and adjustable straps, and it's named "Gabi" after the customer who requested it. [RackedWire]
