Naomi Campbell, Cher and Kim Kardashian have been tapped to front the latest issue of CR Fashion Book.

The publication, founded by Carine Roitfeld in 2012, is known for its edgy cover images, and for the power-themed 16th edition, the editor has tapped the three style icons to star in the main photoshoot.

Shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Roitfeld, the black-and-white images feature each of the women in chic black outfits and graphic make-up.

“The three cultural figures form the ultimate fantasy biker gang and share how power can be wielded for good, through using their voices and platforms to champion communities in need and causes close to their hearts,” a rep for the magazine commented of the theme. “Fronted by the return to our founding logo, CR’s latest issue also explores a myriad of powerful personalities, issues, and trends in society, pivotally timed at the onset of an election year.”

Elsewhere in the photoshoot, Campbell is seen posing in a black bra and blazer while walking on a city street, while in another snap, the 49-year-old is depicted standing alongside the Believe hitmaker in matching outfits. A portrait of Kardashian sees her glancing back at the camera while clutching a leopard print purse.

And in the accompanying article, each of the women were asked to discuss how they use their respective voices and platforms to champion causes close to their hearts, with Campbell speaking about her Fashion For Relief organisation and commitment to promoting HIV/AIDS research.

“I’m not the type of person to disappear when someone’s down; that’s when I’m there the most,” she said in a preview given to People magazine. “Anyone who knows me knows that. “

Cher has been tapped to headline Dsquared2’s latest fashion campaign.

The Hollywood icon is starring in the new spring/summer 2020 marketing imagery for the Milan-based label, helmed by twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten.

Shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the black-and-white image depicts Cher gazing into the distance while wearing ripped jeans and a black sweater with the word “Icon” emblazoned across the front.

“This Is What Happens When The Three Of Us Get Together. Dean, Dan & Cher. #D2SS20 Happy 25TH Anniversary,” the 73-year-old captioned a snap of the campaign on her Instagram page.

The Catens also posted the campaign to their Twitter feed along with the word: “ICONIC”.

The imagery was directed by Giovanni Bianco, with Serena Radaelli tasked with styling Cher’s signature brunette locks and Isamaya Ffrench in charge of make-up.

It is not known if Cher will be appearing in other imagery for the brand.

The Catens launched their company in 1995, and over the years, have built up a reputation for offering edgy sportswear, elegant dresses, and sharp suiting, counting the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, and Beyonce as fans.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the brand, the duo celebrated by having Sister Sledge perform during their Milan Fashion Week presentation in January.

Cher had a new outfit to wear to the 2019 Met Gala but changed her mind at the last minute.

The superstar made a surprise appearance at the annual fashion event back in May and even took to the stage at one point to perform some of her biggest hits for the star-studded crowd.

But while Cher had a whole look planned for the camp-themed night, she opted to stay in her favourite denim jeans, pink camisole, black jacket, and blonde wig when she arrived at the venue.

“I had another outfit to wear but at the last minute, I just thought ‘F**k it. I don’t want to wear anything,” she said in a video for Vogue.com’s Life in Looks series. “So, this is what I came in, except I had a big fluffy, puffy coat that my friends at Chrome Hearts made me. I’ve had these jeans forever; they are patched over patches. And so, I love them. They’re not particularly attractive but I don’t really care.”

However, Cher went for style over comfort when she attended her first Met Gala back in 1974. The Believe hitmaker selected a nude Bob Mackie dress with silver sequins and white feather trim for the bash, with the provocative look certainly courting plenty of attention at the time.

“If you look at it, it looks like it’s stuck to me, and that’s because it is,” the 73-year-old recalled. “I think it was shocking for a lot of people because it was souffle, the dress was souffle, which was a material that was outlawed in America, you could only get it in France. Marlene Dietrich had her beaded dresses made out of it. And so, when you put it on, Bob sprayed it on with a little hand sprayer, and it just sticks to your skin, so it looks like your skin is beaded. I think people were a little taken aback.”

Cher has finally unveiled her new fragrance.

The superstar has been working on her latest scent with master perfumers for several years and announced in May that she was gearing up to launch the product, having last made a foray into the fragrance industry back in 1987.

Now, Cher has released the perfume, named Eau de Couture by Cher.

“For me, a great perfume triggers excitement, emotion, and memories,” she said. “When I wear Cher Eau de Couture, I feel sexy, warm and ready for anything. The process of creating my own fragrance was very personal. Now that it’s completed, I hand it out to the universe, and I know everyone who wears it will create their own excitement… and amazing memories.”

Eau de Couture has top notes of bergamot, clove, and neroli, heart notes of jasmine, rose, and orange flower, as well as base notes of vetiver, sandalwood, and vanilla orchid.

In the accompanying campaign, Cher is seen posing in a black outfit, with an image of the blue perfume bottled overlaid on top. Top fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott helmed the photoshoot.

Speaking about the unisex scent in an interview with WWD, Cher described it as warm and “very touchy-feely”.

“It makes you want to hold onto yourself,” the 73-year-old insisted. “We’ve come a long, long way since I first put out a perfume, so I really do believe this is genderless.

“I (made) it for people who love perfume or people who want to smell good, people who feel that it’s part of who they are.”

Cher Eau de Couture is now available to buy from the Scent Beauty website. A 50ml bottle is priced at $85 (£65).

Cher’s fragrance took four years to make due to her indecisiveness

Cher’s new fragrance took four years to create because she kept changing her mind during the process.

The pop icon recently released Cher Eau de Couture – her first scent in more than 32 years – and explained that the process took more than four years because she kept changing her mind.

“I can’t say exactly why it took four years,” the 73-year-old told Allure magazine. “Nothing ever took me four years. I just knew when I had it. A few times, I thought I had it, but a few days later, I changed my mind. It was kind of like, you know it when you see it.”

Cher Eau de Couture is the Believe hitmaker’s second fragrance, her first being Uninhibited back in 1987. Featuring notes of bergamot, clove, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, vetiver, and vanilla orchid, the fragrance is a mixture of traditionally feminine and masculine scents.

However, Cher was keen to avoid giving her scent a gender.

“I don’t think in terms of genders. I didn’t specifically want to create a ‘genderless’ fragrance. I created it for people who like it. I’ve worn men’s fragrances,” Cher explained. “I wanted a heavy scent. Not that I wanted people to run out of the elevator, but I wanted to be sure it lasted beyond the first spray.”

Her new scent is influenced by her favourite smells and inspired by her mother – who was a big fan of Christian Dior’s Joy.

“I do love the smell of freshly cut grass. I used to do cartwheels and remember that smell really well. I love the smell of popcorn and pumpkin pie. My mom always smelled good. I know she sometimes wore Joy, but she guarded it like it was diamonds,” Cher sweetly recalled.

Cher Eau de Couture is now available for $85 (£66) on scentbeauty.com.

Cher recalls shock reaction to her first ‘naked dress’

Cher couldn’t believe people’s reactions when she first stepped out in a “naked dress”.

In a new video for Vogue.com’s Life in Looks series, the superstar has broken down 22 of her most famous looks and costumes, with the ensembles extending from the early 1960s until the present.

But while Cher has worn many rule-breaking outfits over the years, she pinpointed the nude Bob Mackie dress with silver sequins and white feather trim that she sported to the 1974 Met Gala and on the March 1975 cover of TIME magazine as one of her most provocative.

“If you look at it, it looks like it’s stuck to me, and that’s because it is,” she said. “I think it was shocking for a lot of people because it was souffle, the dress was souffle, which was a material that was outlawed in America, you could only get it in France. Marlene Dietrich had her beaded dresses made out of it. And so, when you put it on, Bob sprayed it on with a little hand sprayer, and it just sticks to your skin, so it looks like your skin is beaded. I think people were a little taken aback.”

Another one of Cher’s iconic outfits has to be the black beaded crop top and skirt, also by Mackie, which she donned when serving as a presenter at the Oscars in 1986.

“This was one of my favourite, favourite outfits. I came to Bob with an idea. I said, ‘I want to have a mohawk, and I want to do something that is not actually Indian, but I want it to be so over-the-top that it’s next week.’ He came back with this. The beautiful shawl was cashmere. I loved the whole thing,” the 73-year-old recalled. “I had the idea mostly because the Academy didn’t really like me. They hated the way I dressed, and I had young boyfriends and they thought I wasn’t serious. So, I came out and said, ‘As you can see, I got my handbook on how to dress like a serious actress.'”

Cara Delevingne: ‘I’m not as confident as people think’

Cara Delevingne is “constantly” working on finding ways to build her self-confidence.

The model/actress launched her career in 2011 and has since gone on to walk the runway for brands such as Chanel and Burberry, as well as embark on a Hollywood career.

But in spite of her public persona, Cara has struggled with anxiety and depression in the past, and in a new interview marking the launch of her Nasty Gal holiday campaign, she shared that she is not always as strong as onlookers may think.

“I’m constantly working to find (confidence),” the 27-year-old commented. “I don’t know if I’m as confident as the public might assume.”

Yet, Cara went on to emphasise her belief that all people should be “empowered” to be themselves.

“I think it’s very important that everyone feels empowered – man or woman. I’ve always tried to embrace and promote messages of uniqueness and individuality. I hope that helps people to feel more empowered every day,” she stated.

Elsewhere in the chat, Cara spoke about her gig fronting Nasty Gal’s 40-piece holiday range, which pays homage to outfits worn by stars such as Cher and Stevie Nicks, and is comprised of ripped jeans, leather-look trousers, cropped blazers, lace bustiers, statement T-shirts, oversized suiting, and items with ’80s-style power shoulders.

In particular, the model is a fan of the jeans with cut-outs and crop tops and insisted she isn’t afraid to re-wear her favourite pieces.

“I am a serious re-wearer. When I’m obsessed with something, I’m obsessed,” Cara said. “(My style) hasn’t changed much over the years and what I look for in clothes hasn’t changed, but with age and maturity, I do appreciate style a bit more. I like to have fun expressing myself through fashion and mix high street with vintage and sportswear.”

The Nasty Gal holiday collection can now be purchased from the brand’s website. Select styles in the range are available in U.S. sizes 2 – 22 (U.K. 4 – 24), with items priced from $19 – $195 (£15 – £150).

Cara Delevingne is starring in the campaign for Nasty Gal’s holiday collection.

The British model/actress has been tapped by executives at the online fashion retailer to front the marketing imagery for the upcoming line, which is inspired by female rock icons.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to star in Nasty Gal’s holiday campaign,” she said. “I’ve followed the brand for years and am inspired by their approach to fashion – always rebellious and ever-evolving. I love to work with brands that push the envelope on style, and this collection does just that.”

Drawing upon outfits worn by stars such as Cher and Stevie Nicks, the 40-piece line is comprised of ripped jeans, leather-look trousers, cropped blazers, lace bustiers, statement T-shirts, oversized suiting, and items with ’80s-style power shoulders.

Highlights include a silver sequin dress, a jacket covered in white pearls, and a T-shirt emblazoned with the words, “I am a rich man,” a reference to a famous comment Believe hitmaker Cher made in a 1996 TV interview.

Cara’s campaign was shot at Electric Lady Studios, the recording studio founded by Jimi Hendrix in New York City.

And Nasty Gal bosses couldn’t be more thrilled with the final result.

“Cara’s fearless style has captured international attention as she continues to make waves in fashion, cinema, and music. With over 43 million followers on Instagram, her influence is widely recognised as she uses her platform to advocate for mental health, women’s rights, and animal conservation,” they praised.

Select styles in the range are available in U.S. sizes 2 – 22 (U.K. 4 – 24), with items priced from $19 – $195 (£15 – £150).

The Nasty Gal holiday collection will be available to purchase from 23 October on the brand’s website.

Lizzo has set her sights on making a foray into the fashion business.

During a recent Q&A at the 92nd Street Y in New York, the Juice hitmaker shared that she has been enjoying experimenting with different looks since finding success and wants a fashion line to channel that energy.

“That’s my thing I feel like a f**king princess lately. Now, I love to play with shapes… I love it, I need a clothing line,” she shared, adding that the public are still hung up about her figure. “Don’t ask me what size I am… it is my size.”

The singer/rapper has seen a shift in the way the fashion industry accepts women with fuller figures in recent years, a far cry from the days she would borrow men’s clothes because she didn’t feel comfortable with the selection of outfits available.

“I would borrow guys’ clothes and wear flannel,” she commented. “I’ve learned a lot from my team. Like, look at Diana Ross … look at Cher, and I now say, ‘Yeah, let’s do that s**t!'”

Lizzo now takes more pride in her outfit choices, quipping: “I want Kate Moss to look at me and say, ‘Damn, where you got that dress?'”

Previously, the 31-year-old opened up about her work in promoting body positivity and noted that she finds it odd when people label her as “brave” for loving and embracing her figure.

“When people look at my body and be like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so brave,’ it’s like, ‘No I’m not.’ I’m just fine. I’m just me. I’m just sexy,” she shared in a chat with U.S. Glamour magazine. “I don’t like it when people think it’s hard for me to see myself as beautiful. I don’t like it when people are shocked that I’m doing it.”

Marc Jacobs has been named as the recipient of the first-ever MTV Fashion Vanguard Award.

The New York-based designer unveiled his first collection under his namesake brand back in 1986 and has since gone on to branch out into a number of categories, including perfume and cosmetics.

Now, bosses at MTV and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have announced that Jacobs is to be honoured for making an “indelible impact” on the industry at the upcoming 2019 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).

“Jacobs and music are inextricably linked, from tapping Cher and Missy Elliott for his ad campaigns, to dressing fashion icons Lady Gaga, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “With a legacy that spans over three decades, Jacobs is a preeminent figure in fashion and music, perfectly embodying the spirit of the Fashion Trailblazer Award.”

In addition, Jacobs and his team are working with MTV to create a multimedia activation on the red carpet to highlight his creative vision at the event. The on-the-ground experience will have a dedicated photographer and stylised elements.

Jacobs’s clothing has been tied to music videos since the start of his career and he used the vintage MTV logo for pieces he designed in his spring 2017 resort collection.

“First of all, MTV always had the coolest graphics,” he told Vogue of his design inspiration. “It was very spot-on for what MTV was saying and who they were saying it to. It really spoke to me, and I think that generation of people at that time.

“I’ve maintained them in my memory bank, and they’ve never gone away. They’re iconic.”

The MTV Video Music Awards will take place in Newark, New Jersey on 26 August. Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco is hosting the event.
