Harry Styles appeared to pay a touching tribute to his ex-girlfriend Caroline Flack by wearing a black ribbon on his suit jacket at the 2020 BRIT Awards.

The Adore You hitmaker hit the red carpet at The O2 in London on Tuesday night wearing a maroon Gucci suit, which he paired with a broderie anglaise collared shirt, purple sweater, purple nails, and a pearl necklace.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the black ribbon on the lapel on his designer suit, and he was also seen wearing a badge with the words, ‘Treat People with Kindness’ badge, according to editors at Digital Spy.

Harry first met Caroline, who presented The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, during his stint on the ITV talent show, and the pair dated for three months in 2011.

The 40-year-old Love Island presenter tragically died on Saturday after taking her own life at her home in London, and an inquest into her death opened on Wednesday.

Elsewhere at the star-studded bash, the former One Direction singer stunned with two extravagant outfit changes. He wore a custom-made white Gucci lace jumpsuit complete with fluted cuffs and matching gloves to perform his emotional track Falling at the awards ceremony.

The 26-year-old then changed into a banana yellow suit from Marc Jacobs’s spring/summer 2020 womenswear collection and teamed the outfit with a lilac shirt and ruffled high collar.

However, the suit was later ruined by BRITs host Jack Whitehall, who accidentally spilled a glass of wine on it.

Miley Cyrus made a surprise appearance on the catwalk during Marc Jacobs’ fashion show on Wednesday night.

The designer unveiled his latest fall/winter 2020 collection at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour, and top models including Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Kaia Gerber.

But instead of joining the audience as she usually does, Cyrus chose to get in on the action partway through the presentation, where she modelled a black bralet, matching trousers, and carried a zebra print coat.

Taking to Instagram after the show, Cyrus posted a video showing her seriously strutting her stuff, and the clip quickly attracted over five million views and comments from her celebrity pals.

Hailey Bieber wrote, “YUP. STOMP QUEEN,” Kloss posted, “Best of both worlds,” and Georgia Fowler penned, “Incredible.” Naomi Campbell simply posted a string of fire emojis.

Cyrus, 27, is a longtime friend of Jacobs and previously collaborated with him in 2013 for a charity T-shirt line, which featured the slogan “Protect the Skin You’re In.”

She also appeared in the designer’s spring 2014 campaign, and they reunited to co-design a pink hoodie to raise funds for Planned Parenthood last year.

Jacobs has long been one of Cyrus’s go-to designers – she wore an outfit from his fall/winter 2013 collection to the Met Gala a few months after he showcased the line.

Marc Jacobs has celebrated the intersection of “chaos and form” with his fall/winter 2020 collection.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour.

To kick off the presentation, Karole Armitage, known as the “punk ballerina”, took to the stage to perform a show-stopping abstract dance.

“Our fall/winter 2020 collection celebrates the intersection of chaos and form, the rituals of getting dressed and the power of storytelling through movement as a gesture into possibility,” a brand representation wrote on Instagram. “Marc Jacobs celebrates the power of storytelling through the movements of legendary and renowned choreographer and dancer, Karole Armitage. Karole’s talent and genius is in her ability to dismiss the discipline of her craft by challenging conventional gestures. Her abrupt, fierce and sometimes violent articulations brings the cultural influences of today into conversation with a past New York I will forever love, not for longing of time passed but for moments that are timeless in reference.”

A troupe of dancers continued to perform in the background as the show began, with a model opening in a lemon-yellow coat and matching leggings. A series of similar numbers in pale pink and white followed, with Kaia Gerber wearing a pale yellow faux fur coat and matching hat.

However, Jacobs then dropped in a variety of eclectic looks, such as a spotted coat, red dress with white Peter Pan collar, a light blue pea coat, a red tartan jumpsuit, and a grey tweed suit.

Other highlights included a black sequin evening gown as worn by Bella Hadid, a white suit and red beret as modelled by Gigi Hadid, singer Miley Cyrus in a black bralet and trouser combination, as well as Karlie Kloss in a white gown with a high-neck top and long silk skirt.

Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Rampling have been tapped to star in Givenchy’s latest campaign.

Creative director Clare Waight Keller took to Instagram on Tuesday to share three black-and-white clips, with the footage showing the fashion designer and the actress repeating their names in a series of tongue twisters, with Rampling, 73, slapping Jacobs’ face at one point.

In the accompanying caption, Waight Keller expressed her delight at landing two high-profile names for the summer 2020 marketing imagery.

“How can I describe my feelings about seeing these extraordinary legendary figures in the Givenchy campaign, both of whom I admire so very much,” she wrote. “Firstly for their undoubted originality and talent in fashion and film, amazing passion in everything they do, a fantastic sense of humour and intelligence, they are true icons there is not much to say other than I am honoured and thrilled they have become part of my journey at this beautiful Maison. They captured the brilliant mix of attitudes and spirit that is Paris and New York the two sides to my Summer Collection. Merci.”

Jacobs, who runs his own fashion and beauty brands, uploaded the videos to his social media pages too, noting that he will always “cherish” the experience.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how special this is and how much I love it. I was in tears (of joy and laughter) this morning when I saw the three posted! Thank you @clarewaightkeller for this amazing opportunity and for your kindest words of support and appreciation,” the 56-year-old gushed.

Accordingly, the surprise collaboration quickly garnered interest from Jacobs’ celebrity pals, with supermodel Iman writing, “Loooooove this!” and TV personality Lisa Rinna adding: “SCREAMING!!!!!”

Jeremy Scott has decided not to present his autumn/winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week in February.

The 44-year-old designer was scheduled to unveil the latest collection for his namesake label in the Big Apple on 7 February, but he has now decided to show his designs in Paris during Couture Week in July.

“Jeremy Scott will no longer be showing his fall-winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week. In a move to pay homage to the city that launched his design career, Jeremy Scott will show his upcoming collection in Paris in July,” representatives for Scott said in a statement, according to WWD.

Scott, who is also creative director of Moschino, isn’t the only New York Fashion Week regular to move his show elsewhere – Tom Ford has decided to show his upcoming collection at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on 7 February, just two days before the Oscars.

“This year, the New York Fashion Week calendar exactly overlaps Oscar weekend, and the last time that happened I showed in L.A. and it worked quite well,” Ford commented back in December. “There is an excitement in L.A. on that particular weekend and the relationship between film and fashion is a strong one. In my role as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, my main intent and priority is to globalise and bring attention to American fashion. There is truly no bigger or more prominent stage in the world at any given time than Los Angeles during the Academy Awards.”

The NYFW schedule is also missing Tommy Hilfiger, who will be hosting his presentation in London, and Pyer Moss, who is sitting out of this season.

However, the calendar still includes shows from Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta. It takes place between 7 and 12 February.

Bella Hadid considers her biggest failure to be not standing up for herself more.

The model answered a series of personal questions that were picked by Rihanna in a new interview for the Umbrella hitmaker’s guest-edited issue of i-D magazine, and when asked what her biggest failure had been, Bella revealed it was when she didn’t “trust and nurture” her intuition.

“I learned that in order for me to grow and know my personal strengths, I need to own my decisions and stand up for myself and what I believe in,” she shared.

And the 23-year-old, who has walked for the likes of Chanel, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Versace, went on to reveal that the highlight of her career has been working with her idols.

“The biggest professional success for me has been being able to work alongside the men and women I have looked up to and watched since I was young,” Bella explained. “It’s been a blessing to watch these artists work and I feel lucky to be a small part of their big visions.”

She also shared her New Year’s resolutions and explained that she will be working towards being her “most authentic” self in the coming year.

“2020 is about leading with love and being the most authentic version of myself as possible ! I’ve seen myself and the people around me grow in so many different ways this year, and in so many aspects of life,” she stated.

“I surprised myself with what I found and I feel confident that I will be entering 2020 with a new perspective on my own personal, and professional happiness.”

Karen Elson has reflected on conquering some of her “biggest fears” during the past decade.

The British supermodel rose to fame in the 1990s, when her red hair and chiselled cheekbones caught the attention of designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, and Marc Jacobs.

In recent years, Karen has juggled her modelling career with making music, releasing her second album Double Roses in 2017, and taking to Instagram at the end of 2019, noted that not all changes in her personal and professional life have been easy.

“As this decade comes to a close, like many I’m reflecting on the past 10 years. I’m going to be honest this decade at times felt like I was running a never-ending uphill marathon, but one of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt this decade was that ‘this too shall pass’ and thank God this has always rang true, when blue skies and silver linings appeared in the darkest moments,” she wrote alongside a selfie showing her flashing a big smile. “I’ve conquered some of my biggest fears this decade simply believing in myself and speaking my truth was always hard for me, but this decade I finally found my voice.”

Karen went on to explain that she is “immensely proud” of her music, just as she is of her two children, whom she shares with her musician ex-husband Jack White.

“Music like fashion brought many experiences into my life some were not always pleasant but they taught me valuable lessons I clearly needed. I’ve watched my children grow and blossom into the brilliant young adults they’re becoming,” the 40-year-old mused. “I’ve loved, lost, made mistakes, mourned those who are no longer here and shed my skin more times than I can count. I don’t regret anything and I’m happy to turn the page and dive in head first into the unknown with a big smile on my face this 2020.”

Anna Sui is adamant current fashion trends are much too casual.

The American designer has been in the business since the early 1990s, and over the years, has expanded her empire to include footwear, cosmetics, fragrances, eyewear, and accessories.

In a new interview with CBC Radio One’s q show with Tom Power, Sui explained that she is tired of athleisure outfits dominating people’s wardrobes.

“We’ve had such a seismic change in how people dress in these last 20 years because things have gotten so casual,” she said. “I remember when you went on a plane before, you would get dressed up: you would see men in suits, you would see women in dresses. Now, you see pyjamas, leisure wear, exercise clothes, shorts. You know, it’s just completely broken down. It’s certainly been adapted by fashion now, the whole ‘athleisure look.’ And now you can buy $1,000 sweatpants and $1,000 sneakers.”

Sui, who explored the grunge fashion scene together with designers such as Marc Jacobs in the ’90s, went on to note that she would love to see the idea of “dressing up” become popular again.

“I wish there was a movement. I wish there was something where people want to get dressed up again,” she sighed. “And it’s not just because I want to sell clothes. It’s because I love getting dressed up.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Sui reflected on her first encounter with Madonna. While attending a fashion show in Paris alongside photographer Steven Meisel back in 1991, the popstar surprised her by turning up to the venue in one of her designs.

“She was wearing my dress,” she remembered. “That was one of those moments where I thought, ‘Maybe I do have a chance. Maybe I can do something.'”

Marc Jacobs has unveiled a capsule collection inspired by the movie Girl, Interrupted to help raise funds for an LGBTQ charity.

To mark the 20th anniversary of the 1999 psychological drama starring Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, based on Susanna Kaysen’s 1993 memoir, the fashion designer has released three limited-edition items featuring graphics and iconography from the film.

Thirty per cent of sales from the hoodie, T-shirt, and gym pant will go directly to The Trevor Project, a non-profit organisation dedicated to suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth.

Taking to Instagram, Jacobs re-posted a note penned by writer and photographer Ava Nirui about the initiative.

“20 YEARS OF GIRL, INTERRUPTED by MARC JACOBS merch pieces to commemorate the iconic Winona and Angelina film from 1999 are available now on marcjacobs.com,” she wrote. “Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen, especially @themarcjacobs. This project is dear to me – this movie changed the way I viewed mental health at a very young age, which was massively beneficial to me as I was in the process of growing up under the guidance of a close family member with clinical depression. It really helped me become more accepting of her and others impacted by mental illness. I’m happy to have done this project with such an important organisation.”

At the end of the post, the designer added: “THANK YOU AVA @avanope I’m so proud of this. GRATEFUL to you for giving life to this project. Love, Marc.”

For the accompanying campaign, model Adut Akech was photographed by Tina Tyrell and styled by Andrew Sauceda.

Items in the collection are priced from $95 to $165 (£72 – £125).

Girl, Interrupted, directed by James Mangold, also starred Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Moss, and Vanessa Redgrave.

Selena Gomez and her little sister wore matching outfits to the Frozen 2 premiere on Thursday night.

The 27-year-old stepped out at the world premiere of Disney’s highly-anticipated sequel in Hollywood, California alongside her sibling, six-year-old Gracie Teefey, with the pair both wearing wintery princess outfits by Marc Jacobs.

Selena wore her hair in loose braids, while both sisters sported matching white prairie dresses with bell sleeves printed with small blue flowers, and show-stopping dark grey sequinned cloaks lined with feathers.

Selena cuddled and kissed Gracie while walking hand-in-hand on the red carpet, which was attended by stars from the film including Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, Evan Rachel Wood, and Sterling K. Brown.

Back in 2017, the Hands to Myself hitmaker paid tribute to Gracie with a heartwarming post on social media.

“I will forever let my sister know she is strong, bold and beautiful,” she wrote on Instagram. “She will be raised to know her voice matters. She is going to understand the importance behind being a leader and inspire others by her truth.”

Selena’s mother Mandy Teefey welcomed daughter Gracie in 2013 with second husband Brian Teefey.

She’s previously spoken about wanting to be a good role model for her sister and claimed her sibling even brings out her maternal side.

“I keep her very very protected. I mean, it’s instinctual,” the star explained. “She’s adorable. I’m obsessed with her and becoming a big sister. I know I’ve had the responsibility to be a role model for girls but, when you have a little sister of your own, you kinda think, ‘Okay, this is legit.'”
