Blue Ivy's Gucci Dress Was Modeled After a $26K Gown [Beyonce.com]
Over the weekend, Beyonce, Blue Ivy and Jay Z staged a photoshoot to show off their Gucci ensembles before slipping out to attend the premiere of Beauty and the Beast. Five-year-old Blue Ivy was especially dressed up for the occasion, donning a custom, tiered green and pink kids' version of a gown that retails for $26,000. Bey's green ensemble put her very pregnant belly on full display, while Jay Z opted for a more casual denim jacket.
Neelam Gill Named First British Indian Ambassador of L'Oreal Paris U.K. [Instagram]
Neelam Gill has been named the first British Indian ambassador for L'Oreal Paris U.K. The model made waves in 2015 when she became the face of the revamped Abercrombie and Fitch — a brand which had a history of casting primarily white models — and has since worked for major brands like Burberry and Dior. Gill also was part of L'Oreal Paris U.K.'s campaign with The Prince's Trust to promote inclusivity.
I can't believe I'm even writing this right now, but I am SO proud to announce I am the new face of L'Oréal Paris UK. To say this is a dream come true is an understatement. I feel honoured to be working alongside such an influential company, especially being the first British Indian model! Growing up I felt left out & unrepresented knowing that nobody in mainstream media looked like me, and now I hope to change that THANK YOU to the whole @lorealmakeup team for believing in me #LorealPFW #Lorealista #LorealFAMILY
Nordstrom and Warby Parker Remove Ads from Breitbart [Racked]
An anonymous consumer watch dog group called Sleeping Giants has been working to encourage brands to rescind their ads from the conservative news outlet Breitbart. Their efforts, which have been ongoing since November, have been successful, with many companies — from fashion brands like Nordstrom, Lululemon, Sephora and Warby Parker to food and home brands like Kellogg's and Jessica Alba's The Honest Company — pulling their ad dollars from the site. (Many companies' ads ended up on the site unbeknownst to them, thanks to a third-party advertising algorithm.) Amazon is one of the few companies which continues to advertise on Breitbart.
Emanuel Ungaro Parts Ways with Creative Director [WWD]
Emanuel Ungaro has parted ways with its creative director, Fausto Puglisi, after five years. Marco Colagrossi, a former senior designer at Giorgio Armani, has been hired to take his place. The French fashion house has also decided to move its production in-house after its licensing company, Modalis, was unable to produce its spring 2017 collection. Colagrossi's first collection for the house, which skipped the fashion calendar this season, will be June's cruise collection.
