Robert Pattinson Is Designing Clothes [i-D]
Robert Pattinson revealed to Numero magazine that when it comes to fashion, he's more than just the pretty face of Dior Homme. The actor revealed that he's been working on making his own clothing inspired by the cities that he's traveled to in the past two years. "What I do is pretty multifaceted," he said, "clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends ... But I'm not going into too much detail, I don't want to jinx anything ...."
Demna Gvasalia Cast All-White Models in Vetements, Balenciaga [Fashionista]
Demna Gvasalia has temporarily usurped the title as fashion's most-talked-about designer from Gucci's Alessandro Michele. Following his debut show as creative director of Balenciaga, there's been nonstop chatter about the designer, but not all of it has been positive. Gvasalia has been criticized for casting white models exclusively in both Vetements (the design collective he founded) and Balenciaga's Paris Fashion Week presentations. Diversity has been a hot topic this season, with many more houses embracing models of different age, size and race, and critics are calling Gvasalia's casting choices a step backward.

His VIP treatment is just further proof of Hollywood and high fashion's mutually beneficial relationship.
