Christy Turlington has been tapped to appear opposite Marc Jacobs in the fall 2019 campaign for his high-end clothing brand.

In recent years, the supermodel has taken a step away from the fashion world to focus on her family and charity projects, but she came out of retirement to close Jacobs’s fall/winter 2019 show held during New York Fashion Week in February.

Following the runway show, Turlington posed with Jacobs for photographer Steven Meisel, and the designer has now used those black-and-white images for his new marketing imagery.

“My friendship with Christy began in 1987. Over these past decades she has always shown up for me. Always. After closing our RUNWAY FALL 2019 MARC JACOBS show, Christy agreed to be photographed for our campaign,” he wrote on his Instagram page alongside a snap of Turlington standing in a ballgown while he reclines on the ground. “The results are stunning and the day in the studio with her, Steven and the crew was a day I will always cherish. It is a great gift to continue to create new memories with her.”

Katie Grand styled the photoshoot, while Pat McGrath was in charge of make-up and Guido Palau did the hair. Another image posted online shows Turlington and Jacobs standing side-by-side, which the 56-year-old captioned: “Christy and me by Steven. What more could I dream of?”

And Turlington, 50, appeared to be pleased with the results too, as she uploaded two of the photos to her Instagram page and commented, “Anything for Marc, always…So excited to see the first of these images taken by #stevenmeisel with @themarcjacobs.”

A number of the mother-of-two’s celebrity pals praised the photos as well, with Rachel Zoe, Eva Herzigova, Niki Taylor, Naomi Campbell, and Anna Sui all leaving messages in the comments section.

Adriana Lima was named Icon of the Year at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards (FLA) on Sunday night (17Mar19).

The Brazilian supermodel is one of the most famous names in fashion, and executives at the publication feted her achievements at a presentation held at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, with Love magazine editor Katie Grand bestowing her with the prize.

“Thank you @kegrand for presenting my fashion icon award tonight. Love you,” the 37-year-old captioned a snap of her posing with Katie on her Instagram page.

In addition, Slick Woods collected the Model of the Year prize, and Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Oscar de la Renta and Monse were named Designers of the Year.

Other models to attend the event included Stella Maxwell, Candice Swanepoel, Chanel Iman, Jasmine Sanders, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Kate Hudson was awarded the Fashion Entrepreneur award for her ventures with athleisure brand Fabletics and clothing company New York & Company, while Lady Gaga was on hand to present her longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras with the Hairstylist of the Year award.

“On my way to present hair stylist of the year from The Daily Front Row to my best friend and hair artist for a decade @federicaspiras,” Gaga wrote on her Instagram Stories prior to the event.

Fashion stars including Christian Siriano and Jennifer Meyer also stepped out for the bash, as did celebrities including Alicia Silverstone, James Marsden, Jaime King, and Busy Philipps, with comedy star Celeste Barber hosting.

“We are thrilled with this year’s honorees representing both established stars such as Adriana Lima and rising stars such as Slick Woods. We’re also delighted to bring Celeste Barber, the hilarious and brilliant Australian comedian, to the FLA stage for the first time. Finally, the fashion world has the comic it so richly deserves,” commented Brandusa Niro, The Daily Front Row’s editor-in-chief, before the ceremony.

Karen Elson and Naomi Campbell have remembered Alexander McQueen on what would have been his 50th birthday.

The British designer, who helmed Givenchy before founding his own namesake label in 1992, died by suicide in 2010 at the age of 40, sending shockwaves throughout the fashion world.

While McQueen, born Lee Alexander McQueen, passed away over nine years ago, a number of stars have paid tribute to their late friend by marking his birthday on 17 March (19).

Taking to Instagram, Elson uploaded a black-and-white photo of her modelling in one of McQueen’s shows and added an emotional message.

“Happy Birthday Lee (Alexander McQueen) I’m sure the angels are all celebrating and up to a little mischief with Annabelle today,” she captioned the snap, referring to the designer’s muse, Annabelle Neilson, who died in July 2018. “Thank you for including me in your shows, they were always magnificent and changed the mould of what fashion was. Sending my love to all Lee’s friends and family. I’m sure today is bitter sweet.”

Campbell shared a photo of her standing next to McQueen at a red carpet event, and commented, “Happy Birthday Lee #AlexanderLeeMcqueen@alexandermcqueen #neverforgotten always in my thoughts and Heart.”

Elsewhere, Love magazine editor-in-chief Katie Grand and McQueen’s go-to milliner Philip Treacy posted sentimental tributes, while photographer Nick Knight penned a lengthy post in which he described how he deeply missed the designer and also encouraging anyone suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts to reach out to friends or medical professionals for help.

“I have been very reluctant to talk about him in interviews as some things are just too painful and are also just too private,” he noted. “However male suicide in the U.K. is one of the biggest killers of young men so if I can write something here that would turn one person away from ending their life then I will more than happily write volumes… Hold on, hold on another day, try and see that life is, in the best case, a very fleeting and an incredibly precious gift.”

Katie Grand to switch up Love Advent following sexual abuse allegations in fashion

Katie Grand’s notoriously sexy Love Advent will be different this year (18) in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Ever since a group of women accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse in October 2017, a wave of actresses and models, female and male, have come forward with their own stories of sexual misconduct.

In fashion, Cameron Russell and Edie Campbell have been leading voices in the fight against mistreatment, with Love editor Katie throwing her full support behind the changes taking place in the industry.

“Love Advent was shot for fun, with full collaboration of all the models involved,” Katie began in a chat with the London Evening Standard. “They were involved in the creative and what they wanted to do and we had 170 million views.

“Yes, (I would do it differently now), so much has changed since we shot this in September, we will continue to collaborate closely with the girls on any films we shoot for Love – Advent or otherwise.”

The 2017 offering featured, among others, Emily Ratajkowski rolling around in pasta while wearing lingerie, Stella Maxwell eating an ice cream and riding a stationary bike in her underwear and Barbara Palvin pole dancing.

Although she’s never seen anything untoward on a shoot, Katie admitted she was familiar with photographers demanding a lot of models.

“What I have witnessed a lot more of is (the model being told), ‘Oh, we’re going to shoot till four in the morning, we’re going to put you in a water tank and tie you up, so you can’t swim. You don’t mind, do you?'” she explained.

“Photographers generally don’t listen. You can say all you want, (or say), ‘You can’t do that.’ But if you’ve got 30 people standing there all saying, ‘It’s 10 o’clock, I’ve got a party to go to, and you say, ‘Oh, come on take your clothes off and get in the water tank’, the girl’s going to agree, unless she’s pretty strong. Lara Stone would tell you to f**k off. She did: on a shoot with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. They were some of the most iconic images we’ve ever produced.”
