Stuff to talk about at hump day happy hour.
Selena Gomez Shares Vogue Brasil Cover with Nicolas Ghesquiere [Instagram]
Selena Gomez and Louis Vuitton's creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere were photographed by Bruce Weber for one of two covers for Vogue Brasil's June issue. Gomez shared the news with her 80 million followers on Instagram and hinted at a possible collaboration with the brand, writing, "exciting things coming with this brilliant man." Gomez has been a strong ambassador for the French fashion house already, attending Ghesquiere's shows and wearing Louis Vuitton to the Met Gala.
Ashley Graham Named Contributing Editor at InStyle [Fashionista]
Plus-size model/body-positivity activist Ashley Graham has a new gig as a contributing editor for InStyle magazine. The 28-year-old will have a recurring column called "Great Style Has No Size," in which she doles out advice on making trends work for all shapes and sizes. In addition to 16 years as a model in the industry, Graham has experience designing for both Dress Barn and, most recently, for Swimsuitsforall — meaning she's learned plenty of tips and tricks to share with readers along the way.
Conde Nast Employees Offered Discounted Subscription to Rent the Runway's Unlimited Service [Fast Company]
Conde Nast employees just got another work perk: Discounted access to Rent the Runway's new unlimited service. For six months, employees will be able to subscribe to Rent the Runway's new service for just $90 — a $49 discount off the regular subscription price. The unlimited service, introduced in March of this year, allows subscribers to keep up to three items in their possession for as long as they wish, granted their membership is in good standing. It should be noted, however, that Conde Nast is an investor of Rent the Runway.
Alexander Wang to Test See-Now, Buy-Now With Resort 2017 [WWD]
Alexander Wang is testing the see-now, buy-now waters with a new approach to showing his resort 2017 collection. As with his last few collections, only editors and buyers will be given a preview of the resort 2017 collection when it is unveiled it in June (all images will be under embargo until the collection hits stores in November). However, this time around, a handful of items from resort will be showcased in his spring 2017 runway show in September, meaning that the wait between seeing a piece and being able to shop it will be about two months rather than six.
