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.'”

Marc Jacobs was delighted when a member of the public recently complimented him on his outfit.

The New York-based fashion designer has been sharing his outfit of the day (OOTD) on his Instagram page, with many of his looks incorporating pieces from other designers.

But while Jacobs is used to having people praise his namesake line, he was stunned on Monday when a man stopped him and raved about his bold ensemble.

“Absolutely true story. I left my shrink (therapist) this morning and a large red haired, blue eyed man who works for the sanitation department was loading garbage on the truck. I noticed him staring at me and assumed immediately he was ‘a hater,'” he wrote on his Instagram page. “Turns out as I got closer and passed him, he said, ‘Love that outfit man, you go flex for those b**ches!’ Really made me smile. I ‘dress up’ for me, and I love the attention I get. I love when people appreciate my #OOTD’s.”

In the accompanying picture, Jacobs is seen posing in jeans, a blazer, and a coat from Celine, a sweater by Raf Simons for Jil Sander, and boots from Rick Owens. He topped off the outfit with a red leather The Pillow bag from his own accessories line.

Previously, Jacobs opened up about his skincare regime in a video for Vogue.com and noted that he is all for experimenting with a variety of different products.

“I love to sit for hours and get my make-up done,” the 56-year-old said in the clip, before demonstrating how he dabs on the Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick on any under-eye circles. “I love to do drag, and I love to do make-up and costume. Dressing up and self-expression is such a big deal to me. I mean, I’m a designer and one of the things I love about clothes is the transformative quality that they have. You can kind of be this person you want to be in the creative choices you make. And, of course, make-up to me, is the final accessory in any kind of fashion look.”

Kaia Gerber can’t always tell herself apart from Cindy Crawford in photos

Kaia Gerber sometimes needs a second to tell herself apart from mother Cindy Crawford when looking at photos.

The model, who is the daughter of Crawford and Rande Gerber, landed her first fashion gig at the age of 10, and after completing high school, has walked the runway for the likes of Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chanel, Versace, and Fendi.

But despite Kaia having a strong resemblance to her famous mum, in a new interview for U.S. Vogue magazine, the rising star insisted that she has only recently noticed their similarities.

“From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom,” the 18-year-old commented. “As I get older, it happens even more, and it’s not just a visual thing: It’s everything from our mannerisms to our voices. It used to be that I didn’t see it at all, but now I will look at a picture and have to take a moment before realising which one of us it is. But the biggest compliment is when someone says I act like my mom.”

But if fans are having trouble telling Kaia and Cindy apart, the model noted that there is one very easy way to distinguish between the brunette beauties.

“A quick tip: My mom’s the one with the mole,” she smiled.

Elsewhere in the chat, Kaia spoke about her decision to enter the fashion world, the impact the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements have had on the industry, as well as the way in which social media gives models power.

“We used to see (models as) a kind of fantasy that was a bit removed from the real world. And while that magic is dimmed a little now, I believe it’s for the better,” Kaia mused. “I think it’s cool that we get to see everyone looking like themselves – for a young girl to realise, ‘OK, they don’t always look like that.'”

Marc Jacobs calls Gigi Hadid’s footwear malfunction the ‘perfect mishap’

Marc Jacobs has described Gigi Hadid’s wardrobe malfunction during a recent runway show as the “perfect mishap”.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week last Wednesday, with the spring/summer 2020 collection reflecting a diverse array of influences from past decades.

Hadid was first seen in the initial parade sporting a light blue dress and pair of mules, but later walked the runway barefoot, with stylist Katie Grand later revealing that one of the model’s shoes had broken during the presentation.

Responding to Grand’s post, Jacobs praised Hadid for remaining calm under pressure.

“A perfect mishap. Sometimes only when something goes wrong does everything go right. Don’t you think??” he wrote alongside a trio of heart emojis.

While in a separate comment, the designer wrote: “What happened with your improv due to a wardrobe malfunction is a testament to your character. Being true to yourself. Able to rise to any occasion and bring joy regardless of the situation. I feel so grateful that this mistake occurred and that it fell into your arms (or feet as the case may be). It’s not often one has the great pleasure of experiencing an ‘honest’ moment.”

Models Ashley Graham, Lindsey Wixson, and Elsa Hosk also uploaded positive comments.

And in her full description of the moment, Grand noted that while thinking of an alternative for Hadid was stressful at the time, she thinks the model looked more “natural” without the original shoes.

“If you see images from the first passage she has thigh-high silver socks and white leather mules, and since we were at the other end of the armoury there wasn’t much we could do other than either fake a non-broken heel or rip off her socks and shoes and send her out barefoot, which we did, and was all the more natural for it,” she explained. “Gigi and all the people from the show thank you all so much for being so patient, beautiful and inspiring.”

Slick Woods unveils unisex jewellery brand

Slick Woods has launched a unisex jewellery brand named C1V1L.

The model, born Simone Thompson, is instantly recognisable for her buzz cut, tattoos, and signature gapped teeth, and has previously walked the runways for brands such as Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Savage X Fenty.

But for her latest venture, Woods has created her own jewellery company, with the line including gold signet rings, lariats, and bracelets.

Alongside a series of images from the debut C1V1L campaign on Instagram, a brand representative wrote, “C1V1L is a unisex jewellery brand pushing a clean, modern, architectural aesthetic using semi-precious metals,” and, “We’re going to be blunt… We want to steal market share and reinvest it elsewhere in people, in ideas, in the future.”

Woods, 23, has teamed with Blakely Thornton, the managing director of Jerry Media, on the company, while sisters Coco and Breezy Dotson, who launched Coco & Breezy Eyewear in 2009, are among the investors.

And while the group wants to offer fans beautiful jewellery pieces, they are also seeking to achieve a wider goal of investing some of the profits into minority and female-owned ventures.

“There is an issue of (our) culture being commoditised, but we are not the owners of that,” said Thornton of the company in an interview with Business of Fashion. “Having been behind the veil in advertising, we were seeing that the people actually making the money off of this culture are largely white, straight men. Even if you’re pushing it and it’s getting a positive media reception, it’s disheartening seeing that the actual financial capital is going back to the same place, back to the top of that pyramid.”

As part of the marketing strategy, Woods will be seeking to reach out to her celebrity friends and 900,000 followers on Instagram.

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.

Celine Dion and Billy Porter have been named on the 2019 Vanity Fair Best-Dressed List.

The Canadian singer is well known for her love of couture, and the Pose star, who made a splash at the 2019 Oscars in a velvet gown and tuxedo jacket from Christian Siriano, have both been selected by editors at the publication as two of the most stylish celebrities in Hollywood.

Dion commented that she is currently “obsessed” with pieces by Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp, founder of fashion house RDVK.

“Every piece they do is one of a kind. And last time I went to Paris Fashion Week, Valentino blew my mind,” the 51-year-old gushed.

Meanwhile, Porter named his style icons as Diana Ross and Andre Leon Talley and also described high heels as the most “powerful thing one can wear.”

Dion fell under The Virtuosos category, joining Marc Jacobs, Diane Keaton, Zoe Kravitz, Rami Malek, Priyanka Chopra, basketballer Serge Ibaka, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris, while Chloe Sevigny, Gemma Chan, Mahershala Ali, cultural philanthropist Pamela Joyner, Frank Ocean, Keanu Reeves, Elle Fanning, and Cicely Tyson were labelled as The Classics.

Joining Porter as The Originals is costume designer B. Akerlund, Tyler, the Creator, artist Kehinde Wiley, Harry Styles, gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, and Lena Waithe, while a special mention was given to designers including Haider Ackermann, Brunello Cucinelli, and Rei Kawakubo.

Valentina Sampaio hopes Victoria’s Secret role is step towards more inclusivity

Transgender model Valentina Sampaio hopes her new role with Victoria’s Secret is a step towards more inclusivity in the fashion industry.

The Brazilian star hit headlines last week when it was revealed she had become the first openly transgender model to work with the lingerie brand in its 42-year history.  

In a new interview with Vogue, Sampaio said she’s “happy and proud” to have landed the gig for the VS Pink line and hopes it is a step in the right direction towards more acceptance in the business.  

“Being appointed the first transgender model for the brand is a hugely important moment not only for myself but (for) my community and beyond,” she said. “I hope (this can) be a huge step toward more inclusivity and representation for everybody.  

“My dream (now) is to live in a world where representation is celebrated… I believe brands are beginning to see the value of inclusiveness, but there is a lot more work to do in our industry, culture, and society. I truly hope to be able to work with more brands that understand the importance of this.” 

Sampaio first rose to prominence when she was tapped for the March 2017 cover of Vogue Paris, becoming the first transgender model to grace the front of any Vogue magazine. She has since worked for the likes of L’Oreal, Dior, H&M, and Marc Jacobs. 

Accordingly, the model hopes to use her visibility and platform “to try to change the status quo” and is looking forward to a future where it won’t be deemed newsworthy for transgender stars to be on magazines or work with fashion brands.   

“Imagine a world where it is not news that a transgender model has been appointed by a fashion brand,” the 22-year-old continued. “Wouldn’t that be amazing?! Because it would mean that it is normal, and it is happening all the time. I want to see this across all communities. Ultimately, I want to live in a world with more respect for every kind of human being.”

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.

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.
