• Scrunchies, the hair accessory that you tried to forget you owned in the '80s, are back -- or at least trying to make a comeback. Take this $95 scrunch from Missoni. It's description? "Embrace fashion's '90s revival with Missoni's colorful scrunchie. Crafted from mint satin with a white, pink and red crochet-knit overlay, this super elasticated, wide design won't snag your hair." We're gonna repeat that: A $95 scrunchie. Discuss. [Net A Porter]

• While most airlines are scrimping as much as possible, JetBlue is like, "hey, we're gonna give you tons of free stuff! Like free beauty products!" For their new premium flight service Mint, they teamed up with Birchbox to offer in-flight sample boxes to passengers. Of course, you'll pay a little more; Mint flights start at $599, though they're on sale right now for $499. [NYDN]

• Diddy -- Puff Daddy, Sean Combs, what have you -- is already putting his daughters to work. His twins D'Lila, Jessie, and their half sister Chance modeled in Kids Fashion Week in New York City. Diddy was super proud of his daughters, tweeting, "Words can't explain how proud I am of my young ladies! There's no greater feeling #fact." Pretty cute, huh? [E!]

• Did you catch the amazing Donatella Versace Lifetime movie House of Versace, starring Gina Gershon that aired Sunday night? Because it was beyond. And it was hard on Gershon, too -- especially all the spray-tanning and smoking. "I did a spray tan," said Gershon. 'Ugh. I'm not a big fan of the spray tan. The wig as already made in advance, so they'd just plop it on. For the makeup, you have to figure out which look you're going for -- is she happy? Sad? Fucked up? But it didn't take that long. We got the whole thing down to probably an hour and a half. And I was smoking so much as her." And the smoking? "I tried the fake herbal ones, but they were killing me. I went for the full-on French cigarettes and the Marlboros. To channel your inner Donatella, you better be smoking hard-core stuff. I'd say that I was smoking about two packs a day, and the shoot was 21 days. It was very fast." [Daily Beast]

• Get thee to a Saks, pronto, because JINsoon is giving out free manicures to celebrate its new holiday collection. You can pick from three sparkly shades: Gala, Fête, or Soirée, at the retailer. Not too shabby, eh? [NYDN]

• Have you seen Beyonce's 2014 calendar yet? Because it is h-o-t. Also, can you believe we're already thinking about 2014 calendars? [NYDN]

• Yes, yes, we would like a DIY vodka facial mist! Vodka is supposed to work wonders as a toner, tightening pores and evening out your skin tone. You can add argan or olive oil to soften your skin, too. Check out this tutorial to see how. [Huffington Post]

• The Olsen twins were like, "hey, we had an extra five minutes in the day, let's buy another company," so they purchased a stake in BeachMint, the e-commerce company that runs ShoeMint, BeautyMint, JewelMint and a slew of other shopping sites. They're also going to serve as co-chairs of the BeachMint advisory board and consult across all the company's brands, because I guess they don't have enough stuff to do in the day. Those two, making the rest of us look lazy. [Stylecaster]
