Gap opened its second denim-drenched Gap 1969 store right across the street from its old location of Gap proper. The spinoff line debuted in L.A. in fall 2009 as a pop-up store on Robertson Boulevard, and the short term denim experiment turned into a permanent location a few months later. Spiffy touches include an iPad "work table" for perusing the selection on-screen before trying on and scouting out-of-stock or online-only dungarees. Expect cuts and washes curated from Europe and Japan displayed amid folliage in the "denim wall." Prices for men and women are in the ballpark of $59.50 to $69.50, with premium price points for some of the more unusual and specially sourced pairs. Denim obsessives will delight in the specially trained staffers,"Jean Experts," ready to enlighten about the exclusive iterations in shades of blue only available at Gap 1969 locations. Sort of like a jean-ious version of those adorable Geniuses that quell your iPhone and Mac Book crises!

Partying in the penthouse of the W HotelChic discussed the best hotel amenity the Fashion Next group has ever seen. Here's what the fashionettes had to say:

Mara Hoffman: "A bathrub at the end of a bed in Jamaica at the Goldeneye. I went there for my honeymoon!"
Mandy Coon: "I always like having slippers you can take. I once was in Moscow and tried to take the bathmat becuase it was really cool. I got caught by a big Russian lady."
Amanda Ross: "It's really about the pillows. Ours our down and everyone talks about them."
Michael Angel: "Diane von Furstenberg's wrap dress inside the mini bar at the W Hotel!"

How did we not see this one coming? Jennifer Aniston launches her debut fragrance today. The perfume, which will be sold exclusively at Sephora.com, is called (WAIT FOR IT!) Jennifer Aniston! The scent exhibits top notes of "citrus grove and rose water and middle notes of blooming jasmine," which "she" paired with wild violets and Amazon lily. Finally, dry down notes include a sensual musk, golden amber and sandalwood. Jennifer's inspiration? The distinct smell of wood fires at friends' houses on summer evenings. But basically, it smells like everything.

The brand's spring campaign, "Journey Into Style," includes its debut film trailer featuring a radiant Angela Lindvall bouncing through a SoCal desert on a road trip, making pitstops for impromptu jam sessions and riding in a variety of open-air vehicles with Jamie Dornan and a posse of equally pretty friends. Print images will be plastered on stores, web banners, and in your mailbox on February 14, while the trailer rolls out in theaters on February 18. Ah, we can feel the windburn now...
