Selena Gomez's Latest Coach Campaign Is an Ode to NYC [Instagram]
Selena Gomez is back for the latest spring 2018 Coach campaign. The starlet was once again photographed by Steven Meisel for the ads, this time rocking an undone messy ponytail and posing with the latest iteration of the brand's Parker bag. Like the fall campaign, which was set in New York City, the spring ads once again capture the urban vibe (though Gomez herself put down roots in L.A.), using the Empire State Building as the backdrop.
Alexa Chung Is L'Oreal Professionnel's Newest Ambassador [WWD]
Alexa Chung has a brand-new beauty gig up her sleeve. The British "It" girl is the new face of L'Oreal Professionnel's hair care range. "Presumably because I pretend to be French a lot, I am the muse for their #ParisianNudes collection," wrote Chung on Instagram. Added the brand in a release, “She is the most Parisian of Londoners, and her effortlessly chic style strongly resonates with L’Oréal Professionnel’s fashion and Parisian anchorage.”
Kris Jenner Joins Kim in the Platinum Blonde Club [Instagram]
Kris Jenner is joining her daughter Kim Kardashian as an official member of the platinum blonde club. The Kardashian/Jenner matriarch showed off her brand-new bleached pixie on Instagram, just in time for the new year. The look had fans reeling from her resemblance to Kim in the photo, prompting Jenner to use the hashtag "#MotherDaughterTuesday."
American Apparel Debuts First Ads from All-Female Executive Team [Ad Week]
After acquiring a bankrupt American Apparel in early 2017, Gildan hired an all-female team of executives to give the brand a refreshed image. Though the L.A.-based label has decided to retain its notoriously sexy image, the new ads have a focus on female empowerment rather than exploitation. Male models are also photographed in similarly provocative poses. In a recent casting call, the brand also requested models "25 years and older" — a step in the right direction for the brand which had been regularly accused of using underage models under ousted founder Dov Charney.
