-- This might be a good time to shop at American Eagle Outfitters: Not only is the store tending toward deep discounts, but it's offering free smart-phones in exchange for trying on jeans. (Caveat: You have to sign up for a two-year service plan with the phone company.) It's the latest in a string of aggressive promotions by retailers this summer. [Wall Street Journal]  

-- The Paris Couture shows got most of the press this week, but on the other side of the globe, Hong Kong Fashion Week was in session too. [The Cut]

-- And Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week is underway (running through Saturday), but it's a struggle to gain recognition. [Wall Street Journal]

-- Meanwhile, back in Paris at the haute couture shows, attendees such as Claire Danes, Jessica Alba and Blake Lively looked pretty haute themselves. [FabSugar] 

-- Megan Fox came prepared when she eloped to Hawaii with Brian Austin Greene: She took along a gorgeous Armani Prive wedding gown. Word is it was a strapless corset style with 16-foot train. [People]

-- A slew of designers gathered at Net-a-Porter's new London headquarters this week to celebrate the online retailer's 10th anniversary. [WWD]

-- Tavi Gevinson, the 14-year-old fashion maven, has taken it to the next level: She landed a gig styling Christine Straub for BlackBook's September issue. [The Cut]
