Olivier’s world…

Up close and personal…

Taking a photo alongside your favorite model is about to get a lot easier. Musée Grévin, the Parisian wax museum, is adding a fashion section to its wax-figure collection. The section will feature various industry figures, including Inès de la Fressange, Coco Rocha, and Cara Delevingne. [WWD]

Verified on Instagram

In a statement today, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said the company is dedicated to “doing everything possible to keep Instagram free from the fake and spammy accounts that plague much of the Web.” On top of deleting fake accounts, the app will also soon include badges of authenticity for verified accounts of brands and public figures.

Watch this space

Today, Android Wear officially opened watchface creation to third-party developers. Users are now able to customize their watches by changing faces to specifically designed images. Brands such as Rebecca Minkoff and Porsche have already jumped on board, with more designs expected to roll out in the near future. [TechCrunch]

Flirting gets digital…

It turns out that humans aren’t too great at noticing when someone is flirting. A study conducted by Stanford University researchers found that when it comes to flirtation, women are able to detect it only 62 percent of the time, and men 56 percent. This is a pretty poor result, considering that an automated “flirtation-detection system” was able to correctly identify flirting with 71 percent accuracy. [The Cut]
