Katy Perry to headline Super Bowl halftime show

Kendall Jenner's success linked to social media

Katy Perry will headline the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1, the NFL said Sunday. She'll bring a little "Firework" spark to the proceedings, and said that maybe she'll cover the stadium in edible glitter, CNN reported. Or do something else kooky but fun. [Los Angeles Times]

Kendall Jenner's quick rise to the top echelon of modeling -- not only walking in top designer shows over the past few fashion weeks but nailing a coveted contract with Estee Lauder last week -- is due in no small part to her social media wizardry. [New York Times]

Karl Lagerfeld introduced Chanel's latest film, "Reincarnation," starring Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne. In the film, the two waltz and sing "CC the World," an original ditty by Williams. [WWD]

C. Wonder disputed a report that it plans to close 20 of its 32 stores (though it left the door open to closing at least some of them). [WWD]

Coach said it plans to spend $570 million revamping its retail stores over the next three years. Three stores -- in Beverly Hills, New York and Tokyo -- have already been redone to "feel better." [Racked]
