Snapchat Show to Pre-Release Adidas’ Falcon W on Saturday

Snap Inc. and Darkstore are partnering with Adidas to pre-release a new model of the Originals sneaker in “Fashion 5 Ways,” a new Snapchat show debuting this Saturday. The move is the first product launch for the ephemeral social network’s programmatic content.
Inspired by Nineties running shoes, the kicks — Adidas’ Originals Falcon W sneaker — will be featured in the first episode of Thumb Candy Media’s “Fashion 5 Ways,” a series from the creators of one of Snapchat’s most popular shows, “Nail the Look.” The show features women exploring creative ways to wear fashion staples, like sneakers, and the first episode will be available in the app’s Discover page.
In addition, “Fashion 5 Ways’” audience will also be able to buy the shoe right from the show by just swiping up. This is the first time a Snap show has ever offered product purchases, though it’s not the first deal between Snap and a shoe company. The social network had a previous “shoe drop” with Nike in February, but that required a physical presence and Snapcode scanning.
This is the latest move in Snap’s bid to become an e-commerce hub, pushing social commerce via shopping from ads.
As a pre-release, Falcon W will

Kylie Jenner Admits She Uses Her Housekeeper’s Arm as a Canvas for All Those Lip Kit Swatches on Snapchat

While detractors of the Kardashian-Jenner family love to claim that these ladies are just famous for being famous, Kylie Jenner‘s multi-million dollar cosmetics empire begs to disagree. In just two short years, the youngest member of the family, has turned what was once her most infamous attribute into her biggest money-maker, launching an online beauty corporation with tons of instantly sold out products that seems to only be getting bigger by the day. And as she revealed in a new interview with Fast Company, her business’s model for success is no accident and is, of course, largely due to her social media prowess.

Anyone who’s familiar with the Kylie Cosmetics brand will instantly recognize those signature perfectly square swatches that she paints on her skin to show off the colors of her latest launch. But the beauty CEO has a confession to make about what really goes into creating those picture-perfect Snapchat moments. “Everyone knows when I’m releasing a product on Snapchat that I will be MIA for the next hour and a half,” she says, “I’m running around my house, finding the perfect lighting, the perfect swatches. My housekeeper, I use her arm for my Snapchats. She has the best arm for swatches. She’s so nice and just sits there and has her arm ready and lets me do my thing. I care a lot about what my products look like when people first see them.”

RELATED PHOTOS: Every Single Time Kylie Jenner Has Ever Changed Her Hair Color

But while many fans might feel betrayed to find out that the swatch-covered arm they’ve been coveting does not in fact belong to King Kylie, the teen CEO did say that the inspiration for her products does come from a very personal place.

When asked why she even went into makeup to begin with, Kylie explained, “I can’t leave the house without lipstick. Everyone was so interested in the color I was wearing. But nothing was ever perfect for me. I just thought, ‘Why not make my own lip kit with a liner and lipstick?’”

And the impetus behind all of her new beauty creations follows a very similar line of thought, as she says, “I’m always thinking about what I want, and what I think people want. For example, the smell of the lipsticks–I knew I wanted something sweet. I was in the lab, and they gave me 12 options, and I picked my favorite. Then we did the percentage: ‘Do you want 50% or 75% smell? Do you want it strong or weak?’ It took a long time. Then on Instagram, I’m on my Kylie Cosmetics all day curating it. It has to be perfect.” Almost as perfect as those swatches she paints on her beyond patient housekeeper’s arm.

‘Fits Perfect!’ Kim Zolciak-Biermann Wears Nearly-Nude Bikini in Snapchat Selfie

When it comes to showing off barely-there swimsuits, Bravo star Kim Zolciak Biermann is a pro.

As her Snapchat followers know all too well, the 38-year-old “Tardy for the Party” singer is known to rock some teeny weeny bikinis — whether it be on one of her many tropical vacations or hanging poolside at home.

But a new swimsuit Zolciak-Biermann modeled on social media on Friday might take the cake.

The number looks like it could come straight out of the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. It features nude bottoms and a clear bandeau top with a tape-like strip covering her nipples.

“How cute is this little number?,” the reality star asked as she modeled the suit in a video. “I think it’s like super cute. I mean, obviously it’s not something I would wear on a family trip, but something for my hubby? Yeah? Fits perfect!”

She emphasized the swimsuit’s body-hugging fit in another still image, captioned “Perfect fit.”

Earlier, the mother-of-six modeled the same suit, showing off her bottom. “Obsessed with bikinis!!” she wrote. “My own line coming soon.”

Zolciak-Biermann’s bikini line isn’t the only thing that’s coming soon. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum will return to the show that made her famous in an upcoming episode.

She was last seen on RHOA‘s season 5, when she exited the series a few episodes in after refusing to go on a girl’s trip with the cast. Since then, she, her husband Kroy Biermann and their brood of children have run amok on their hit spinoff show Don’t Be Tardy.

RELATED VIDEO: Cynthia Bailey Talk’s Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s Return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta

But the opening of Shereé Whitfield‘s Chateau Shereé brings Zolciak-Biermann back for the RHOA cameras — and it doesn’t take long for her to pop-off on Kenya Moore.

“Your husband doesn’t have a job right now, so worry about that,” Moore quipped in a trailer for the episode.

“Bitch, you want to be me,” Zolciak-Biermann responded. “You want to have a baby, you can’t. You want to have a man, you f—— don’t. Bye.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

The brand tapped Mario Testino to shoot images and video of the making of the campaign in London Thursday to create an exclusive campaign for Snapchat followers. Testino will publish content in real time to the brand’s Snapchat account starting at noon and the images and videos will disappear after 24 hours.
Last month, Burberry partnered with Snapchat on a multitiered program surrounding its spring runway show. In addition to snapping sneak peaks of looks the day before they were sent down the runway, there was Live Story coverage of the show (including both crowdsourced and brand-created content).

Kylie Jenner Says She’s ‘High As F–k’ In Snapchat Video

Kylie Jenner is pretty good at keeping secrets (she spent all those months denying she had lip injections), so we’re pretty sure she knows what is and isn’t the best idea to post on social media.

And yet here we are. On Wednesday, the 17-year-old took to Snapchat where she posted a number of photos and videos of herself and boyfriend Tyga on a flight, but one video is just not like the others.

“I’m high as fuck,” Jenner is heard saying before taking a bit of what appears to be a biscuit (she shared a photo of what looks like a Popeyes’ fried chicken meal earlier that day), and reacts as though it’s the best thing she’s ever tasted. “Oh my God,” she says as her eyes light up.

We’re not sure if Jenner is referring to the altitude, but The Huffington Post has reached out to her rep for comment.
