Bella Hadid has been tapped to star in Helmut Lang’s spring/summer 2020 campaign.

Of late, the American model has landed gigs for the likes of Versace, Missoni, and Michael Kors, as well as appeared in shows for Moschino, Max Mara, and Rodarte.

Now, Bella is appearing in the marketing imagery for fashion label Helmut Lang, with the images shot by photographer Ethan James Green and creative directed by Brian Phillips.

The black-and-white visuals stay true to the brand’s minimalist aesthetic, with the 23-year-old only modelling monochromatic clothing.

Styled by Patti Wilson, one snap shows Bella wearing an oversized black leather jacket with matching leather trousers, a classic crop top, statement sunglasses, while another depicts her in a white top with cutouts and black trousers.

For the photoshoot, hairstylist Jimmy Paul opted to style the model’s dark brunette into a straight style with heavy bangs.

And it appears all involved in the project were thrilled with the final result, with Bella writing on Instagram alongside one of the snaps: “Thank you x a billion @ethanjamesgreen @patti_wilson I love you both, pure passion and talent.”

And the post quickly garnered the attention of her celebrity pals, with Anna Dello Russo commenting, “Major”, Dua Lipa writing, “yes yes YES!!!!!” and Elsa Hosk adding: “Sooo sick.”

Ethan has previously shot campaigns for Calvin Klein, Fendi, and Marc Jacobs, and also helmed Helmut Lang’s fall/winter 2017 imagery featuring Dara and Alek Wek.

Jeremy Scott has channelled Marie Antoinette with his latest Moschino collection.

The creative director of the Italian label unveiled his fall/winter 2020 line as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with the likes of Chiara Ferragni, Yolanda Hadid, and Saweetie all perched on the front row.

Titled Let Them Eat Moschino, Scott once again stuck to his signature camp aesthetic and scattered the range with references to portraits of the last Queen of France before the French Revolution in 1789, as well as to the famous phrase she was believed to have once uttered.

Regarding the concept, the designer told Vogue backstage that he had been influenced by the political divisions around the world occurring at present, especially in relation to protests in Hong Kong, Brexit in the U.K., and backlash over some of U.S. President Donald Trump’s more controversial policies. Yet, rather than offering up a very serious spectacle, he opted instead to spark a sense of delight within the audience.

“All I can do is offer respite,” he shared. “Even if you continue to fight, you need that moment of joy. We all need something uplifting. My role on this earth has only ever been to spread joy and bring happiness.”

To open, model Deirdre Firinne took to the catwalk in a gold embroidered denim dress with extremely wide skirt along with matching lace-up boots and an enormous wig courtesy of hairstylist Paul Hanlon.

A parade of similarly dramatic outfits followed, though Scott interspersed them with ladylike metallic suits, whimsical printed dresses, and candy-striped ballgowns.

Highlights included a black outfit with Moschino logo as worn by Irina Shayk, with the look topped off with layers of ’80s-style chain necklaces, and Bella Hadid in a white dress with wide skirt which was matched with a cropped black leather jacket.

And the fashion star saved his most couture creations till last, with Joan Smalls concluding the presentation by wearing a dress that resembled a tiered cake, and Gigi Hadid stepping out in a coat made entirely of faux red and pink roses.

Billie Eilish rocked a custom Burberry outfit, complete with matching bonnet, to the 2020 BRIT Awards on Tuesday night.

The Bad Guy hitmaker’s unique look featured the luxury British brand’s iconic check on a cosy camel sweater and trousers, with the outfit topped off with a beige trench coat, plaid socks, and a matching manicure.

Her eye-catching ensemble, heavily influenced by a look spotted at creative director Riccardo Tisci’s spring/summer 2020 show during London Fashion Week, was complemented with chunky beige boots and jewels from Tiffany & Co.

It was a big night for the 18-year-old, who performed her Bond theme No Time to Die for the first time at the ceremony and also scooped the accolade for Best International Female.

Lizzo was also among the celebrities making a show-stopping statement on the red carpet, as she wore a custom dress, designed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino, made to look like the wrapper of a Hershey’s chocolate bar.

The floor-length gown even included a barcode and the nutritional value of the sweet treat, while the Juice hitmaker accessorised with a chocolate-bar inspired clutch bag by Judith Leiber.

Harry Styles led the stylish men on the red carpet, rocking a Gucci suit before changing into two more designer outfits during the star-studded bash.

While Stormzy, who wowed fans with his incredible performance at the BRITs, looked chic in white trousers and a matching high neck jumper from Dior.

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: ‘I started modelling way too young’

Bella Hadid believes she started her modelling career “way too young” because she wasn’t prepared for the recognition she received.

The 23-year-old grew up a keen equestrian and had dreams of representing the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil until she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, along with her mother Yolanda and brother Anwar, in 2012. Accordingly, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her sister Gigi and dropped out of school to pursue a modelling career, landing her first professional job at the age of 16.

In a candid new interview with LOVE magazine, Bella admitted she didn’t have a great deal of confidence in her appearance at that age and would often hate seeing photos of herself and feel “mortified” when brands wanted to work with her.

“In my opinion, I started modelling way too young,” she shared. “I was still growing, and my confidence wasn’t fully matured. I didn’t love myself or didn’t necessarily think I was worthy of all of the recognition I was getting.”

However, Bella has since developed a strong work ethic and is always determined to give her all during a job.

“Being a model is about being a team, working together and being creative,” the brunette beauty continued. “If I don’t go into a shoot every day and leave being incredibly proud of the work we made, then it doesn’t seem like a successful shoot to me.”

Bella, who has posed for fashion campaigns for brands such as Moschino, Versace, and DKNY, also insisted that models are not the most important person on the set of a photoshoot, even though they are the subject.

“One thing is always the same: everyone is equally important on set. Everyone is there for the same reason, to work hard and make art,” she stated.

Moschino has collaborated with beer brand Budweiser on a capsule collection.

Jeremy Scott, creative director of the Italian fashion brand, included a dress inspired by the Budweiser label in a pop culture-influenced collection back in 2014.

Now, to mark the launch of two new limited-edition beer bottles, Scott has created a 15-piece range to match.

“Moschino x Budweiser wear your style and drink your taste,” a Moschino representative wrote on Instagram, while the American designer added: “EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE MY BUDWEISER X MOSCHINO CAPSULE COLLECTION AVAILABLE NOW ON MOSCHINO.COM.”

The line includes T-shirts, hoodies, trackpants, a dress, and a one-piece swimsuit, while earrings, bags, caps, and wallets are among the accessory options.

Items are priced from $75 – $2,385 (£58 – £1,847) and are available to purchase from the label’s website.

Meanwhile, Moschino has also dropped an accompanying campaign based around the collection, with the images featuring models in the outfits in front of a collage background.

Luisana Gonzalez and Joao Knorr star in one picture, while Estelle Chen fronts another image with the headline “Moschino. King of Clothes. Budweiser,” a play on the beer brand’s slogan – The King of Beers.

And while the line only dropped on Monday, users have inundated Scott’s Instagram page with comments, with one person writing, “This is the collab I didn’t know I needed,” and another adding: “LOVE YA! THIRSTY FOR A BEER NOW!”

Jeremy Scott has designed a new trench coat for London Fog.

The creative director of Moschino has teamed up with the American outwear brand once again to design a classic beige coat which features bold graffiti-style graphics on the front and back.

“Growing up, London Fog made that winter coat that you got for the new school year,” he told InStyle of the Jeremy Scott x London Fog piece. “When you think about fall weather, with the rain and all that, you think about a trench coat. It is such a classic, and I loved the idea of putting a spin on it and playing with that.”

And the designer insisted that the unique trench can be worn by anyone and “goes with everything”.

“Clothes have no gender, so I feel like they should be for everyone. Who cares which way it buttons or what department it’s in? It’s more about it being something that you love and that you like the way it fits,” Scott shared.

While his first eight-piece collection for the brand launched back in March and heavily featured leopard print, this time around he focused on incorporating colour into the new trench coat.

Scott looked at vintage photos of New York City from the 1980s, specifically the graffiti-covered subway trains.

“I thought about all the graffiti on the trains, and wanted to kind of merge the two together, where the graffiti had gotten on the trench,” he explained. “I was thinking about the trench being ‘tagged,’ and then tagging New York City and London in a really vibrant way. The trench is so ubiquitous that it’s almost become anonymous. I decided to make it stand out, to feel singular and one-of-a-kind.”

The trench coat, which is available in sizes extra small to extra large, can be purchased from London Fog’s website for $298 (£242).

Jeremy Scott has paid tribute to Pablo Picasso for Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection.

The fashion designer unveiled his latest line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night, and true to form, offered up an extravagant spectacle.

Honouring the life and artwork of the Spanish painter and sculptor, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a brightly coloured dress which evoked Picasso’s early Fauvist-inspired art.

Brightly coloured printed suits and graphic coats with sharp shoulders followed, with dresses resembling the flowing curves and abstract shapes of the icon’s first Cubist pieces.

Referencing Picasso’s heritage, one model sported the red cape and black hat of a matador, along with blue leggings and shiny gold jewellery, while another carried a black purse with the words “Bull chic” splashed across the front.

Joan Smalls rocked a red and gold dress inspired by the embellished outfits worn by bullfighters, and another model showed off a red polka dot dress with ruffled sleeves, similar to the worn of flamenco dancers.

A highlight of the collection was a black gown dotted with sequin flower appliques, with the look worn by Stella Maxwell, as was a black velvet dress with architectural shoulders that was dotted with blue and green beads and had pink lining in the skirt.

Yet, somehow Scott managed to turn the theme up another notch towards the end of the presentation, having Kaia Gerber walk the catwalk in an outfit shaped into a guitar, as influenced by Picasso’s still life paintings, another model donned a sequin dress which referred to the artist’s groundbreaking 1907 work Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and others sported pieces that looked like actual gold Baroque picture frames.

To conclude, Bella Hadid rocked a pink and blue sequin jumpsuit which alluded to Picasso’s paintings of harlequins, Irina Shayk dazzled in a gold and black dress with violin motif, and Gigi Hadid was Moschino’s “bride” in an over-the-top white dress with huge veil and dove motifs attached to the front.

Hailey Bieber has dropped a major hint indicating she may be done with runway modelling.

The model launched her career in 2014 when she made her catwalk debut walking for Topshop, and since then, she has appeared in shows for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Philipp Plein, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott.

But in a recent post on her Instagram Stories, Hailey shared a photo of her strutting down the catwalk during the Zadig & Voltaire fall/winter 2018 show and criticised her arm placement.

“What I do know, is that ur arm truly should never swing this high when ur walking on a runway (sic),” she captioned the image, circling her arm in blue. “Hence why it is not, and will never be my thing again lol (laugh out loud).”

Hailey did not share any further comments on her possible career move. The last major runway show she appeared in was Versace’s pre-fall 2019 show held in New York City last December.

However, shortly before the blonde star wed popstar Justin Bieber in a courthouse ceremony in September, she shared in an interview with WWD that she is planning to be more selective about her modelling gigs in the future.

“I’ve tried to be really choosy with fashion week going forward, just because I want to have the time to spend being relaxed and being with family – and my fiance,” the 22-year-old commented.

In spite of her latest social media posts, it appears Hailey is still passionate about campaign modelling, and has recently landed gigs for brands such as Miu Miu, Max Mara, Levi’s, and Carolina Herrera.

Duckie Thot is a big fan of using cocoa butter and swears it is the key to “glowy” skin.

The Australian model, who is of South Sudanese heritage, has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion world since launching her career in 2013, having landed work for the likes of Yeezy, Fenty Beauty, Oscar de la Renta, Moschino, and L’Oreal.

Now, Duckie has shared some of her favourite beauty products, and noted Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion is at the top of her list.

“After every single shower, I’ll sit there for a good 10 minutes and lather my whole body with cocoa butter,” she said in an interview with New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It just stays on all day, and your skin looks so glowy. It’s not too thick. Sometimes oil gets on clothes, which is really annoying, but I love the cocoa butter – it just goes on super-nice.”

Duckie went on to explain that she is a big fan of Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes for removing make-up, and usually washes her face with Clarins’ Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

“It’s just so thick and creamy, and just a small pump gives you so much product. It’s really gentle on my skin, though I’d say it’s good for all skin types, honestly. It just makes your skin feel really great after you use it. I take it with me everywhere; I use it morning and night,” the 23-year-old said of the brand’s formula.

Elsewhere in the chat, Duckie shared that she can’t get enough of Apple’s AirPods, the Savage x Fenty Padded Eye Mask for when she is travelling, and more unusually, champions fibre supplements from Metamucil.

“I drink the powder with water in the morning; it’s a cleanser, an inside cleanser. I feel like it’s great to have with breakfast, and it just gets you going for the day. It helps me feel more active,” she praised.
