Chase your tequila Tuesday with these style stories.
Who better to star in underwear ads than hunky, fit athletes? Okay, maybe some DJs are cut out for the job (cough, Calvin Harris, cough), but sports stars like David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are pretty good, too, as far as we're concerned. Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal is the latest athlete to join the legion of fitness buffs-turned-modeling men with a new campaign for the revamped Tommy Hilfiger underwear collection. The images were released on Instagram today, and so far, so good. [Instagram]
Lady Gaga has been immortalized in cartoon form by none other than Hello Kitty designer, Yuko Yamaguchi. The popstar was transformed into a wide-eyed digital "sticker" (which can be used on Japanese social media platform, Line) for a new collaboration with Shiseido, which Gaga is currently the face of in Japan. The eight stickers feature Gaga rocking the wild looks she sports in the campaign along with fun slogans like "paws up" and "you do you." [Yahoo]
Hearst is building out its digital presence with a new team of employees dedicated to a yet to be revealed Snapchat project. The publisher is currently hiring a slew of editors and reviewers for what is rumored to be a special partnership with the social media platform. Though Hearst has not confirmed any specifics, job listings hint that there could also be a potential ecommerce component. And like, all the kids are doing it, so why not? [WWD]
Marc Jacobs is not messing around when it comes to the dress code for his upcoming party for Gloss, a new book about '70s photographer Chris Von Wagenheim. Invites tell of a "strict dress to kill code" that includes "no flat shoes" — but that's not all. Guests are also encouraged to wear "fur coats over lingerie," "gold lame turbans," "sheer harem pants" or anything that qualifies as "rollerina chic." Okay, maybe he's messing around a little bit.
