Style Notes: Paris Against In-Season Fashion Schedule; Fans Upset Over Gigi Hadid's Missing Moles
Taco Tuesday with a side of style.
Just yesterday, Kering's president Francois Pinault declared that he was against the idea of the industry's trendy "see now, buy now, wear now" model, and it looks like he's not the only one feeling that way. The French Federation of Fashion and Ready-to-Wear Couturiers and Designers, which dictates Paris Fashion Week's schedule, revealed that its board of directors unanimously decided against an in-season schedule, opting instead for the traditional set-up. Looks like Tom Ford and Burberry will remain the outliers opting for a consumer-facing presentation schedule. [WWD]
Gigi Hadid landing a Vogue cover is hardly newsworthy anymore (she's covered Paris, Australia, Spain, Brazil, Italia, Netherlands — the list goes on), but it's her recent cover for Vogue China that has the Internet buzzing. Fans are outraged that Hadid's moles were photoshopped off of her bare midriff for the March issue's cover, which was shot by Sølve Sundsbø. Internet activists took to Hadid's own Instagram post of the issue to air their grievances about the dearly missed moles. [Instagram]
John Galliano — the fashion house, not the person — unveiled its first campaign since undergoing a logo makeover last year. But while the logo is new, the brand decided to throw it back for its campaign star, casting Christy Turlington in the black-and-white ads. Shot by Inez and Vinoodh in New York under the creative direction of Bill Gaytten in collaboration with logo designer Atelier Franck Durand, the campaign is a dramatic break from Galliano's darker, more gothic imagery of the past.

The American Girl brand has added a brand-new doll to its lineup. Melody Ellison is a Civil Rights-era 9-year-old girl hailing from Detroit. Along with her '60s garb, including a cute green and blue houndstooth shift dress, Melody also wears an "Equal Rights '63" pin. To create the most authentic version of the doll, American Girl consulted an advisory board made up of historians and educators. [Elle]
