Prada's Creepy Browless Look

Plus the beauty/intelligence conundrum, Tavi on fashion, and more top stories of the day

• Remember a few years ago, when every blonde model was getting her brows bleached into non-existence? It was an eery look, right -- so ghostly and almost menacing. Well, it may be back -- at least according to Prada, who featured brow-less models in its most recent catwalk show. This isn't the first time Prada's tinkered with brows -- the brand had models bleach out their brows in 2009, too. What do you think of the trend? [BellaSugar]

• Target's offering Philip Lim fans gift cards to make up for unfulfilled orders. Disappointed customers are reporting that the big box store is in some cases offering cards for more than the cost of the item purchased. One customer said she received a $100 card after making a $75 purchase. [Racked]

• Teen blogging darling Tavi Gevinson stars in the new movie "Enough Said," and seems to be pursuing world domination via a multipronged writer/actress/DJ/singer approach. We're into it. So that may be why she's a little bit over Fashion Week hullabaloo. Asked how it felt to be missing NYFW while attending the Toronto International Film Festival, she said, "I didn't know Fashion Week was going on ... it's the same feeling [as when] I leave from school to go to a city and I come home and I have to catch up on homework. [Laughs.] That's, like, the only thing on my mind right now." [The Gloss]

• You need these Burberry nail shades -- trust us! So act fast -- they're only around for another week and a half before they'll be pulled from until 2014. [Vogue UK]

• You shattered your eye shadow and are now covered in five different shades of taupe? We've got a way for you to salvage it, promise. [Refinery 29]

• Well, well, well: There's a correlation between attractiveness and intelligence -- among college professors. That is, the higher a Ph.D candidate scored on their GRE test, the lower they scored on attractiveness ratings by profession. Um. Okay. But, warns study head Sanjay Srivastava, "There may be some problematic stereotypes that this graph plays into -- like the idea that you can be attractive or competent but not both. So I feel compelled to conclude with a warning to readers: if you take this too seriously, I'm going to move your profession to the bottom of the chart." [Business Insider]
