Monday's need-to-know news.
Bella Hadid Covers Elle [Elle]
Hot off the heels of her first-ever Vogue cover, Bella Hadid has nabbed the spotlight for Elle magazine's June 2016 issue. Outfitted in an Azzedine Alaïa bodysuit, belt and beret and Wolford tights on the cover, Hadid is what the glossy describes as "the hot, cool girl of the moment." And when it comes taking the perfect photo, she revealed, "My mom always taught me to think about something happy when I'm working, because it kind of shows through your face. I used to think about my horses, but now I think about other things."
Baby Yeezys Are Coming in August [The Cut]
It's official: Tiny versions of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350s will soon be available. After Kim Kardashian recently teased Saint West wearing the baby-sized footwear on Snapchat, she confirmed the news during Sunday night’s episode of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians. No word yet on how much the mini ones will cost, but if the adult Yeezys are any indication, it'll be worth more than a pretty penny.
Calvin Klein Debuts Very NSFW Spring 2016 Campaign [Fashion Copious]
Calvin Klein's latest ads — titled "Erotica" — are as sexual as indicated in the campaign title. Photographed by Harley Weir, models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kendall Jenner, Klara Kristin and Saskia de Brauw are seen posing in a number of suggestive positions, including having their hands in underwear, wearing jeans backwards to reveal the bum and, uh, the squeezing of a grapefruit. Oh, and there's a lamb involved.
Gucci Exits Anti-Counterfeit Group After Alibaba Allowed Access [Business of Fashion]
Gucci is quitting the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization devoted to combating product counterfeiting and piracy, after Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba was allowed access to the group in April. Alibaba's admittance as a member of the IACC is raising concern for a number of luxury labels — including Michael Kors, which exited the organization last month — since the online marketplace is being questioned over whether or not it is fighting counterfeit goods as it tries to expand globally.
