Morning, gents. Here's the latest in dude news for Wednesday, September 30:

Don't Call Them Gull Wings: The long-awaited (and delayed) Tesla Model X finally entered the spotlight Tuesday night, boasting nifty "falcon-wing" doors and the electric drivetrain that will make the Model X the "quickest SUV" in the world. It ain't the DeLorean, but we can see a flux capacitor going in one of those things. [USA TODAY]

A Giant Steps Down: Ralph Lauren, a true titan of American design and fashion, is stepping down after helming his eponymous label for almost half a century. Stefan Larsson, a former H&M executive and president of Old Navy, will pick up the Pony's reins. [New York Times]

Define "Curvy": Supermodel Gigi Hadid shot back at critics who apparently think she's too curvy for the catwalk. Which is kinda strange, because have you seen Gigi Hadid? "Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment," she wrote in an Instagram post. If that's curvy—even by supermodel standards—then what about women who spend time in the gym toning exactly that? Haters gonna hate, Gigi, but we're with you on this one. [CNN Style]

Omnivores vs. Carnivores: Red meat has had a mixed reputation among the health-conscious, particularly when it comes to the health of the "good" bacteria in your gut. But a new study suggests that eating meat is okay for your gut flora—as long as you eat plenty of vegetables too, according to a study published Sept. 28 in—surprise!—the journal Gut. [HuffPo]

Google Phones Released: The Internet giant shifts more weight into the mobile market with the release of the Nexus 5X and 6P phones, as well as the Pixel C tablet. [Google Blog]

A Game of Thrones Movie Is Coming: George R. R. Martin says there will be a Game of Thrones movie, according to a report from the UK tabloid Daily Star—so take it with a hefty chunk of salt. The catch? He won't be writing the screenplay. [The Independent]
