Today, our sister site Mogulite officially relaunched as The Jane Dough, a site for news, commentary, and insight on women in business. Why are we so excited? Because, though fashion is lucky enough to have a small advantage over other industries in terms of female leaders, we’re all about lady power — and any site interested in covering and encouraging that gets our seal of approval.
We have some exciting news! Our sister site Mogulite, run by desk-pod neighbors Amy Tennery and Hilary Reinsberg, is getting a fancy, lady-focused makeover, TechCrunch announced today. Bye bye, Mogulite. Hel-loo, The Jane Dough!
Who are the most attractive male moguls around? Mogulite asks itself this question from time-to-time, when the work of falling Dows and scandalized CEOs gets too much to bear. So, why did we do this? Because we wanted to. How? In an entirely unscientific fashion. Are they all single? Nope — but they are nice to look at. Did we leave any worthy contenders off the list? Please tell us! And now, come take a peek at the ones we picked.
Between Bank of America and Yahoo, the corporate world is turning into a real bloodbath, eh?
Okay, we’ll admit it: we’ve never understood why investors keep giving Dov Charney so much cash. When his hipster clothier American Apparel was on the ropes in April, he managed to get a $15 million injection — and he managed to blow through it in less than a month. Not a great move.
Amancio Ortega, the richest man in Spain and founder of Zara, is stepping down from his post as Chairman of Zara’s parent company Inditex, as announced at a company meeting this week, according to The Guardian.
Admittedly, I have no idea how one would go about hosting a jewelry show. What I do know, however, is that how Guinness beer heiress Daphne Guinness did it was really, really creepy.
Nearly thirty years of denim jackets and jean shorts later, the head and founder of Guess? is finally calling it quits, he announced in a press release today. Maurice Marciano co-founded the company with his brothers in 1981 and has served as the CEO since. He says he’ll continue to serve as a non-executive Chairman of the Board, but is stepping down as the company’s leader at the end of the fiscal year in January.
A high-end haircare/liquor mogul and “The Jersey Shore” — we’re amazed these worlds hadn’t collided until now.
You can now have Breakfast at Tiffany’s! In bed! At New York’s ritzy St. Regis hotel! For the small fee of $8,500 a night.
Yup, it’s exactly what it sounds like. The famed jacket worn by Michael Jackson in the music video for “Thriller” is hitting the auction block, according to Luxuo, with an estimated value of $400,000. We’d expect no less from the coat that launch a thousand ill-advised mall-shopping ensembles.
Ladies and gents, we present to you the shoe that can never be worn. Ever. Okay, maybe a mogul might wear them inside if they had a staff of people sweeping the ground in front of them with the fury of an olympic curling team.
In honor of the launch of our newest sister site, Mogulite, which covers the crazy expensive world of corporate gurus, enterprising celebrities and up-and-coming titans, we’ve put together a list of the most fashionable moguls across all industries — and some of our picks may surprise you. Money may be able to buy you designer brands, but only good taste can give you style.
