In case you missed it.
Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner Quit Smoking [Instagram]
Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and a slew of other models, musicians and actors took flak last May when they were photographed smoking in the bathroom of the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the annual Met Gala. Both museum donors, who worried about the preservation of the priceless works housed at the Met, and concerned anti-smoking activists, who worried that the highly influential group was glorifying smoking to their impressionable young social followers, lambasted the group for lighting up. However, last week, both Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid posted to Instagram that they'd quit the habit. Ironically, both did so by posting photos of themselves looking cool with a cigarette in hand.
Stan Smith, The Man, Stars In Adidas Campaign With Pharrell [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Toss around the name "Stan Smith" to anyone under the age of 35 and most people will immediately assume that you're talking about a pair of white and green retro Adidas sneakers. But lo and behold, Stan Smith, the person (not to mention, prolific tennis player), is getting his chance to reclaim his name. The 70-year-old stars in the newest Adidas Originals campaign for the next drop of Pharrell's collaboration with the brand, which will include both Pharrell's Tennis Hu style as well as the Stan Smith in a variety of new colorways (available Aug. 10 for $110). The photos, which feature a mustachioed Smith fist bumping Pharrell, do not disappoint.
