Soo Joo Park

Soo Joo Park had more than just her birthday to celebrate this month--she was just named L'Oreal's newest global spokesperson. The supermodel joins such famous faces as singer/actress Jennifer Lopez and models Lara Stone and Doutzen Kroes. "I like that they really take pride in their spokespeople. They have a personal relationship with all the people that they choose to represent the brand," said Park, who is the brand's first-ever Asian-American ambassador. She added, "To be the first to represent a global brand is a huge honor. But I don't want to be just that one thing; I want to be the global ambassador." Of receiving the news on her birthday Park said, "I really couldn't ask for a better present."

 

Kendall jenner

Kendall Jenner's resume just keeps growing--the 19-year old is now the new face of Calvin Klein Jeans Denim Series, an entirely new line, limited-edition line of athletic pieces.  The campaign was shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Melanie Ward, and features a fresh-faced Jenner alongside male model Simon Nessman. Also visible on the photos, the hashtag #mycalvins, which was started when singer Justin Bieber starred in the brand's Spring 2015 campaign and earned the brand an additional 3 million followers on various social media outlets. Jenner, who has 21. 8 million followers on Instagram alone, has helped push the success of the #mycalvins campaign by posting selfies in her calvins.  Look for the  Calvin Klein Jeans Denim Series in Opening Ceremony stores on April 15, and on CalvinKlein.com on May 15. 

 

Of a Kind

Of a Kind is one of our favorite shopping sites (we've featured a few products on Must-Have Monday), so it was kind of a big deal when we heard about an Of a Kind home decor collection launching at Target (another of our favorite shopping destinations, by the way).  The collection will feature items from three of the indie e-commerce site's brands: wall art by Dealtry, coasters, soap dishes, toothbrushes, and balsam pillows by Izola, and the most adorable animal bookends and wall hooks we've ever seen by Wolfum. The Of a Kind for Target collection will only be available in 350 of the nearly 1,800 Target brick and mortar stores across the nation, and sadly there are no plans to stock it online right now, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll find it on Target.com eventually.

Faith Ronning is President of Noblesville High School FIDM Fashion Club in Noblesville, Indiana. With her club, she just produced the school's first ever fashion show, and it was a huge success! Just check out the images on Twitter @nhs_fashionclub! We caught up with Faith within hours after the show to find out more...

Tell us about the fashion show: The fashion show has three sections. The first is sponsored by Maurices clothing store where about 20 models walk in bohemian spring themed outfits. The second section has garments designed and sewn by members of the Fashion Club. I actually designed two myself. There are seven designs total. The final is mens stylizing. A few of our young gentleman will present their stylized outfits on the runway.

What do you like the most about putting together a show like this? We are doing the show the day before spring break starts. Doing the bohemian theme will truly get kids feeling ready and excited for spring break. It will give the audience some ideas for looks and trends to use throughout their spring break. 

What are the challenges? We only had a few club meetings before our fashion show. We are putting it together within 3.5 hours of club meetings. It is our first ever fashion show at Noblesville, but everything is coming together beautifully. Many others, and I have been staying after and working extra time to get things done in time.

How did you get involved in Fashion Club? I am attending FIDM in the fall. My advisor (Matt Schug) told me all about the option of starting the club through FIDM. I started this club because I never had the opportunity to display or create my designs inside of high school, and I wanted to give students the opportunity to connect with one another through their love for fashion. For them to be able to share their individuality and their passion for design.

What other kinds of activities does your club do? As our club just started up this semester, we have met about five times. The last three meetings were getting the fashion show together, but we also designed our club’s t-shirts. We are planning to take a trip to Chicago and go to a fashion show and to the Art Institute museum. We are also planning to have people come in, in different fields of fashion careers and talk to the club members. We would love to go to an Indianapolis women's shelter to paint their nails, do their hair, or something along those lines. We want to get out into the community to spread the word of the FIDM Fashion Club along with helping others.

What are your career plans? I am going to FIDM this fall. I am going into Fashion Design. I would love to have my own line one day. 

Paris-hilton

Fragrance designer André Barnwell, who teaches Fundamentals of Fragrance in FIDM's Beauty Industry Merchandising & Marketing Program, is our guest beauty blogger, reviewing fragrances and reporting on fragrance trends. André says...

Paris Hilton for Women Limited Anniversary Edition is a redo of Paris Hilton for Women 2004, celebrating her fragrance line's 10-year anniversary.

"I'm thrilled to celebrate 10 years," Hilton says, "I keep getting requests all over the world for more fragrances and so I'm happy to keep creating them. Paris Hilton for Women was an obvious choice for the Limited Anniversary Edition as it was my first fragrance when I was 23 and will always be very special to me."

The fragrance has top notes of red apple and peach; middle notes of lily of the valley, mimosa, freesia, jasmine sambac, tuberose, and ylang-ylang; and base notes of sandalwood, oak moss, and musk. The fragrance is described on ParisHilton.com as having "delicious notes of frozen apple and juicy peach nectar wrapped with dewy muguet and a splash of wet ozone." Paris Hilton Limited Anniversary Edition is available in a 3.4 oz. eau de parfum spray.

Pharrell

Pharrell Williams is not one to shy away from fashion risks; he has a style all his own (do we need to remind you of the hat), and whether you love it or hate it, you have to admire him for his sartorial fearlessness. Now the "Happy" singer is being honored for his personal style with a Fashion Icon Award from the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). Williams is only the second male in history to receive this top honor, the first being Johnny Depp back in 2012, but he has certainly earned it. "If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell," said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. We couldn't agree more. Now the only question is, what kind of unique look is this guy going to pull out of his hat for the awards ceremony (no pun intended)?

 

Peter Dundas

It's official--Peter Dundas is taking the helm at Roberto Cavalli after being named the Italian fashion house's new creative director.  Dundas, who has been creative director at Emilio Pucci since 2008, will take over both women's and men's ready-to-wear collections, as well as accessories and all of Cavalli's licenses, including Just Cavalli. Both Dundas and Roberto Cavalli himself showed their Fall 2015 collections last month in Milan for their respective labels, but come September the former will be debuting his premiere collections for Roberto Cavalli. "The choice of Peter Dundas was made with the desire to evolve a style that combines glamour, tradition and innovation, recognized worldwide as the signature of Cavalli since the birth of the house," said Roberto and Eva Cavalli in a statement. High praise coming from one of fashion's greatest. 

 

Beyonce

Beyoncé is designing a shoe! No, not a shoe collection (which would be beyond amazing), just one shoe. The "Flawless" singer has teamed up with Giuseppe Zanotti to collaborate on a pair of ultrathick platform stilettos inspired by the Queen Bey herself. "Beyoncé has very clear ideas--she knows exactly what she wants," Zanotti said of designing the shoe. "I'm working on finalizing the design with her stylist right now. And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn't like." We cannot wait to see what these two come up with.

Super Basic Fantom Mirror Sunglasses

Spring has finally arrived and we couldn't be more excited. We've already pulled out the flirtiest skirts and dresses we already own, and we've compiled a list of everything we need to buy for the new season--these Super™ Basic Fantom Mirror Sunglasses are at the top. We love the oversized frame, and the mirrored lenses couldn't be cooler (notice how they're slightly golden against the grey frame?).  These sunnies will no doubt be in heavy rotation this spring.
