Lena Dunham and "Girls" producer Jenni Konner are starting a weekly email newsletter called Lenny to give advice on topics ranging from fashion to finances, politics to consumer products.

According to the mission statement, "Lenny is your over sharing Internet friend who will yell at you about your finances, help you choose a bathing suit, lamp, president ... AND tell you what to do if you need an abortion."

Rihanna has designed a limited-edition collection of colorful socks for Stance. The term "socks" doesn't really do the foot/legwear (some styles are thigh-high) justice, with its graphic, Galliano-inspired prints. Stance socks are more like works of art than foot-warmers. They are found "on the feet of those who dare to be different," the company's website proclaims.

At New York's inaugural Men's Fashion Week, Boyswear founder Jackson McKeehan showed a collection inspired by both "The Sound of Music" and reviled cult leader Charles Manson on Monday.

On Tuesday, Thom Browne took a different tack, introducing "Officeman" in his collection of tailored gray suits, showcased in multi-image mirrored cubes.

Super model Gisele Bundchen shows off her famous abs in ads for Under Armour's newest sports bra. Also in the campaign are world champion downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, ballerina Misty Copeland, world champion soccer player Kelley O’Hara and professional surfer Brianna Cope.
