Quvenzhane Wallis is the new face of Armani Junior
Quvenzhane Wallis is making major moves and she’s not even in junior high school yet. The Oscar nominated actress is now taking on the fashion world.
Quvenzhane is the face of Armani Junior, Giorgio Armani‘s line for children and teens.
Giorgio Armani said it was Quvenzhane’s kindness, curiosity and openness toward others that lead him to select the 10-year old as the face of Armani Junior.
Quvenzhane shares the same excitement. ” It’s fun to wear Armani Junior since I really like the clothes. It’s young. It’s cool. My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes.”
Not just your friends, add me to the list. I’m gushing over her black satin suit and white blouse. Classically chic!
Congratulations young lady. You make me proud! ( hollywoodreporter )
MTV’s Catfish Host is the New Face of Rocawear
When he’s not uncovering your mystery love life or tracking down your cyber boo on MTV’s Catfish, Nev Schulman is taking up his new role as a model for Jay Z’s clothing line, Rocawear.
This is the TV personality’s first modeling gig. He says he turned to a few super models for inspiration. He told MTV UK, “I did watch the short film Max [Joseph, his "Catfish" co-star] made with Lena Dunham and Hamish Bowles [for Vogue.com], where he taught her how to pose! So I practiced doing a ‘Gisele’ and a ‘Naomi’.”
Okay, I admit, Nev is a cutie, but I never pictured him as a model. These Rocawear fall campaign ads are proving wrong. Nev looks great! (fashionista )

Kanye Can Spot a Fake
“Don’t talk about style cause I’ll embarrass you.”
Let’ just say Kanye West practices what he preaches. Well at least that was the case this week while the “I Won” rapper was in Paris prepping for his upcoming nuptials.
Kanye was approached by an excited fan, who wanted him to sign a pair of his “Red October” Yeezy 2s. Cool, right? Wrong. The fan’s sneakers were FAKE and in true Kanye fashion he called the fan out for having FAKE Yeezy 2s.
Kanye was a good sport. He signed the sneakers anyway.
I wonder how much this guy paid for the fakes? And more importantly, will the value go up after the sneakers were penned with Yeezy’s signature? (mtv.com)

Chanel Iman for Harper’s Bazaar Russia
Chanel Iman is quickly become a highly sought out model. Check her receipts.
She’s the Net-A Porter’s “The Edit” cover girl, the face of the Gap Factory Store’s summer campaign, and now the Sport’s Illustrated model is gracing the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia.
Chanel looks amazing in this shoot captured by Alexander Neumann. I’m seriously gushing over these gowns. I’m here for the heavy dose of prints and embellishments.
Rita Ora Teams Up with Adidas
Rita Ora has the sporty chic look down to a science so it’s only fitting that she is the latest celebrity to team up with Adidas.
The 23-year-old British songstress is collaborating with the shoe and clothing brand. The collection, which is set to release in August will be broken down into five different themed sub-collections.

Rita said she’s excited about the collaboration. “I grew up working at a sneaker store when I was 16 and am a huge sneakerhead. It’s so cool that I’m able to do this with a brand that I sold when I was younger.”
Way to go Rita! (WWD)
Gucci Confirms Launch of Cosmetic Line
After a year of speculation and whispers, Gucci has finally confirmed the launch of its first cosmetic line and the face of line is royalty. Seriously, she is. Charlotte Casiraghi, fifth in line to the throne of Monaco, has been tapped as the face of Gucci’s debut cosmetics collection.
The collection, slated to release in September will include eye, face, lip, nail and skin care products. I can’t wait to see what the fashion house produces. More than anything I hope the line’s range reaches every brown hue. (VOGUE)
