Morning Brew – Ellen goes shopping and talks new fashion line in “Vogue”

Good morning!

Ellen DeGeneres allowed Vogue to accompany her on a Parisian “visual fact-finding inspiration trip” for her new design line, E.D. (said like “Ed,” which is Portia de Rossi’s nickname for her wife). The line will include “accessibly priced men’s and women’s clothing that reflects Ellen’s enduringly classic, collegiate style (leavened with dresses that suggest Portia’s understated, feminine sensibility).” So we all can be an Ellen or a Portia!
