Style Notes: Alexander Wang Casts Kaia Gerber, Travis Scott; Gigi Hadid Poses Nude for Vogue Paris
Come down from your post-Beyonce high with some style news.
Alexander Wang pulled out all the stops to tease his new spring/summer 2016 campaign by launching a brand-new Instagram handle, @wangsquad, on Monday to preview the famous faces he's cast. The designer's favorite model muses, including Lexi Boling, Anna Ewers, Molly Blair and Hanne Gaby, are joined by a handful of entertainers and creatives such as Travis Scott, singer Alice Glass and painter Lucien Smith. Kaia Gerber,14, is also set to make an appearance in the campaign, which debuts in March. [Instagram]
Gigi Hadid's latest Vogue cover leaves little to the imagination. The 20-year-old posed wearing just a pair of Chanel heels and shackle-like bangles for one of two Vogue Paris' March issue covers, photographed by Mert & Marcus. The second cover is just a bit more covered up, with the model wearing just a Chanel coat and pearls. Though she's posed for other Vogue iterations in the past (Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Brazil, etc.), this is her first cover spot for the famed Parisian edition. [Instagram]
Jessica Alba is bringing Honest Beauty, which she launched last September, into the mainstream with a new partnership with Ulta. The natural cosmetics line, previously sold exclusively online and in a few pop-up stores, will roll out in 250 Ulta stores and online at Ulta's site this month. The news follows rumors of a possible IPO for the Honest Company. [WWD]
Fashion authorities Derek Zoolander and Hansel stopped by Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update to dish on the style of presidential candidates. Highlights include their comparison of Hillary Clinton's coat to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's buttoned-up uniform and a breakdown of Donald Trump's "Orange Mocha Crapaccino" look. [THR]
Madewell has partnered with New York-based designer Daryl Kerrigan of the brand Daryl K for a new 18-piece collection set to launch Wednesday. The collab fuses the designer's '90s aesthetic with Madewell's laid-back vibe, so it makes sense that they tapped fashion icon/rocker Kim Gordon to front the campaign. In an interview, Kerrigan also revealed that she has plans to "refresh" her own brand in the coming months. [Fashionista]
