Style Notes: Kendall and Kylie Star in Pacsun Campaign; Jesse Tyler Ferguson Makes Ties for Tony Awards
Thursday fashion fun.
Before they were writing books, becoming supermodels and stirring up lip-related controversy, one of Kendall and Kylie Jenner's first gigs was designing seasonal collections for PacSun. The sister's latest summer line for the retailer (priced between $25 and $70) will be released tomorrow, but you can get a glimpse of the pieces in their new promotional video which features crochet rompers, pastel pink bikini tops, an amusing poodle and Kylie's freakishly long nails.

Natalie Portman has been cast as Jackie Kennedy in the late former-first lady's new biopic, Jackie. Given Mrs. Kennedy's reputation for stellar fashion (hello, pastel skirt suits), we're willing to bet that the costumes will steal the show. [THR]
Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, Justin Mikita, created a limited-edition bow tie for the Tie Bar in celebration of the 2015 Tony Awards. The tie is part of the couple's Tie the Knot for The Tie Bar collection, the proceeds of which benefit the Tie the Knot foundation to support LGBT rights. [WWD]
Avon stock prices soared on Thursday following what now appears to be a fake offer to buy out the company. A questionable entity called PTG Capital Partners claims to have filed with the SEC to buy Avon's remaining stock for what economists are calling a "ridiculous price" — $18.75 per share for a total of $8.2 billion. Red flags surrounding the offer, including mix-ups with the company's name (in a statement they referenced themselves as both PTG and TPG) as well as a suspect address (125 Old Broad Street in London), have left investors scratching their heads.
