Choupette

Karl Lagerfeld's cute little snow-white Siamese kitty is going to front a holiday makeup collection for Japanese brand Shu Uemura! Her name is Choupette Lagerfeld, and we're sure you're going to fall in love. She even has her own Twitter handle @ChoupettesDiary. 

Shu Uemura is calling the makeup collection Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld (awwww!) and it's set to hit shelves in the fall. Lagerfeld already photographed his little cat for the Shu Uemura campaign.

Shu Uemura has been hand-coloring Lagerfeld's illustrations for more than 20 years. WWD reported that the Shupette range may include furry false eyelashes. Meow.

Ag-alexa-chung

Former model Alexa Chung has teamed up with AG Adriano Goldschmied on a 20-piece collection set to his stores in January for spring 2015. Expect to see overalls and denim dresses as well as t-shirts and jeans in the Alexa Chung for AG lineup.

“The collection is inherently the missing pieces of my dream denim wardrobe, which, as ever, is predominantly inspired by a late Sixties, early Seventies aesthetic,” Alexa Chung said.

Chung visited the office of AG and its parent company Koos Manufacturing Inc., in South Gate, California, which is about 10 miles from FIDM's Los Angeles campus. The former model discovered that it was also the site of its 400,000-square-foot factory, run by the Ku family, well-versed in the denim industry.

WWD reported Alexa saying, "I found the trip incredibly inspiring and an opportunity to learn about denim and make things I had been dreaming about finding."

Willamina Modern Apothecary Sun-kissed Protector

We follow all the rules: we keep our hands at 'ten and two' when we drive, we wait thirty minutes after a meal before we go swimming, and we always, always wear sunscreen. This all-natural sunscreen from Portland's Willamina Modern Apothecary Sun-Kissed Protector is totally rocking our world because it's made from locally sourced organic ingredients and it's loaded with anti-oxidants, plus, coconut oil and grapeseed oil are super nourishing and keep our skin hydrated and soft. The fact that the packaging is so cool is really just a bonus. 

Balmain

Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing wanted to highlight the beauty and uniqueness of different ethnicities, so for his Fall 2014 campaign the designer traded his friend Rihanna, who was the face of the Spring 2014 campaign, for an ethnically-diverse group of supermodels. Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, Ysaunny Brito, Issa Lish, and Kayla Scott star in the safari-themed campaign, which was shot by Mario Sorrenti and art directed and styled by Love magazine's Katie Grand. Love and American Vogue will be the first glossies to feature the ads.

 

Metail

Remember Cher Horowitz and her amazing outfit-selecting computer program from Clueless? Well if you are as big a fan of the movie as we are, you'll be happy to know that the computer program that dreams are made of is now a reality! Metail, a virtual retail company, has launched a virtual dressing room where customers create a MeModel that they can use to try on Cher's wardrobe and build different outfits, which can then be shared on Facebook. And of course that iconic yellow tartan blazer and skirt is available to try on.

Kit Harington for Jimmy Choo
Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington is kind of the last person we'd expect to see holding a cobalt Jimmy Choo change purse, but that's not to see we minded seeing his brooding face in one of the label's new ads. The star of the hit HBO series is now the face of the Jimmy Choo Fall 2014 men's ad campaign, as well as the new fragrance, MAN, and the Carrer' by Jimmy Choo sunglass collection. "Kit was the perfect choice for the campaign – he has an innate confidence and projects a playfully rebellious nature. He has an overtly masculine style that feels effortlessly cool and a great sense of humour, and beneath that intensity he is a true gentleman," said Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi. Gotta say, we're pretty pleased with their choice for the campaign as well.

Wilfred Beaudry Blouse

We want to live in loose, breezy, effortless clothes this summer, starting with this Wilfred Beaudry Blouse. We love the A-line silhouette (how cute is that gonna look with cropped skinnies or a pencil skirt?!),  we adore the sweet floral print, and we think the rows of lace are just so darn pretty. But it's the specially-treated fabric that's designed to have that crinkly look that makes this blouse so special. We definitely plan to rock this little number all summer long, and come fall, we're gonna toss a blazer on over it and rock it some more.

The Limited Scandal Collection

The Fridays after ABC's hit show Scandal airs, our Twitter feed is buzzing with queries and comments about it, namely what the drama's heroine Olivia Pope wore. Not since Carrie Bradshaw has a television character's sartorial tastes ignited such a frenzy among fashion lovers--naturally, a capsule collection is in the works so fans of the series can dress just like its leading lady. Come September, fashion inspired by Olivia Pope's classic trousers, pretty blouses, and ridiculously chic outerwear will be sold at The Limited. Kerry Washington, the actress who portrays Olivia Pope had this to say about the collection, "People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible. It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people." Washington, along with Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo, has been working with The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples on the 42-piece collection, which will retail from $49 to $248. While this is not the first television show-inspired clothing collection (remember the Mad Men collection at Banana Republic), it is the first time a national retailer, a major TV show, its costume designer and its leading actor have linked up.

Prabal Gurung MAC Cosmetics

Sometimes fashion designers dabble in the beauty arena and we get really excited. But excitement is a bit of an understatement when it comes to the news that fashion darling Prabal Gurung is doing a color collection...with MAC Cosmetics...for the holidays! Gurung, who had a successful collaboration with Sally Hansen, is known for sending models down the runway in vivid makeup looks (just check out the must-have orange lips on the model above), so we can likely expect to see some very bold colors come November 26 when the deco-inspired collection hits MAC counters. "I think what you try to create is a moment and emotion that, when people look at the particular girl with the hair, makeup, and clothes, it’s a split second of emotion and they’ll walk away feeling something immediately, or when they see something else, they’ll remember that particular moment," the designer previously said to InStyle. Obviously we can't wait until the holiday season so we can make some memorable moments with our Prabal Gurung for MAC products.

Zac Posen

Zac Posen already has a pretty impressive resume, designing for his eponymous and diffusion lines, collaborating with David's Bridal, dressing countless Hollywood A-listers (including Amanda Seyfried, Claire Danes, and Beyonce to name a fabulous few), and judging Project Runway, but the New York-based designer is adding yet another title--Creative Director for Brooks Brothers woman's mainline and accessories lines. While Posen is known for his dramatic, red carpet gowns, he believes he will fare well with the classic, New England American aesthetic of Brooks Brothers, telling WWD, "[I'm] honored and excited to be embarking on this incredible opportunity to take the Brooks Brothers women’s brand into the future while respecting its deep, rich American heritage as an institutional company." Posen's first collection with the clothing chain is set to hit stores in the spring of 2016.
