It has been a whirlwind few weeks for influencer Patrick Starrr.
Last week news broke that Starrr, whose real name is Patrick Simondac, would launch a yearlong collaboration with MAC Cosmetics. The deal with Starrr, who turned 28 last year, is MAC’s “broadest” collaboration to date, according to the company. Specifically, the effort stretches beyond typical paid-for content deals or product partnerships with Starrr given full creative reigns, according to MAC. He also has a new E! News Snapchat program called “Face Forward,” a fresh take on the tried-and-true makeover tutorial. This weekend, Starrr will cohost the first American Influencer Awards in Los Angeles alongside Kandee Johnson.
Trevor Andrew, the artist known for his Gucci Ghost collaboration with Gucci, hit Complexcon last weekend to launch his fist line, Real Buy. The streetwear line includes jackets, short- and long-sleeve T-shirts, each with one of the artist’s seven designs, reports @ariahughes .

Kane Brown didn’t take the traditional road to country music stardom, writes @jeanpalmieri .
Instead of cutting his teeth in church and dive bars throughout the South, Brown made a splash on Facebook by releasing several covers of country classics — George Strait’s “Check Yes or No” and Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” among them — that soon went viral. “I was working at FedEx and Target and just doing it for fun,” he said of the videos. “I put it on social media and got around 50 likes. Then I woke up one day and saw that it had gone viral overnight.” Read more on WWD.com 📸: @georgechinsee
