Jonah Hill has confirmed he’s collaborating with Adidas.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor officially announced on Tuesday via Instagram that he has teamed up with executives at the German sportswear giant for an unspecified project.

“This is the official announcement that I’m partnering with adidas,” he wrote in the caption besides a video showing the Adidas logo besides his name handwritten in capital letters. “Thank you adidas for trusting me and believing in my ideas and pushing them to become even better. This is a dream for me to start the journey of creating with a team I respect and love. Thrilled to show you all what we’ve been working on. More coming very soon. @adidasoriginals.”

In the comments, his celebrity friends showed their support for the partnership, with Naomi Campbell posting a series of clapping and heart emojis, Olivia Wilde writing, “Coooool” with a clapping emoji, and his mother Sharon Feldstein, who called herself a “proud mama”.

The 36-year-old didn’t reveal any further details about the collaboration, which he had teased a year ago on the Failing Upwards podcast.

However, it was rumoured on social media earlier this month that they were releasing two colourways of the Samba shoe and a new iteration of the Superstar shoe. These details haven’t been confirmed.

Jonah has been a longtime fan of the Adidas brand and helped promote their updated Lxcon sneakers on his Instagram account in October 2018 before their official release.

The star joins the likes of Kanye West and Beyonce, who have developed their Yeezy and Ivy Park collections with the company.

Kim Kardashian slams Kanye West for criticism over ‘too sexy’ Met Gala look

Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian “bad anxiety” ahead of the 2019 Met Gala by revealing he didn’t love her sexy look.

The reality TV star stunned at the annual event in a custom wet-look Thierry Mugler beige dress – which, after eight months of preparation, her Yeezy mogul husband wasn’t a fan of.

“Like the corset, underwear, all that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition of being a rapper, and lookin’ at all these girls… I didn’t realise that that was affecting like my soul and my spirit,” he said in Sunday’s instalment of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

After adding he’s not that into his wife showing off her body now that he’s “someone that’s married and in love and the father of what’s about to be four kids”, Kim fired back: “The night before you’re going to come in here and say you’re not into the corset look?

“You’re giving me really bad anxiety… I don’t need any more negative energy.”

While the rapper insisted it “affects” him when his wife’s pictures are “too sexy”, the KKW Beauty mogul told him: “You built me up to be a sexy person and have confidence! Just because you’re on a journey and you’re in a transformation, doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you!”

Ending the argument, Kanye calmly said, “Okay” and walked out of the room, as a stunned Kim said to her friends: “That’s absolutely ridiculous.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Kim worried about how she’d fare going to the bathroom in the tight-fitting number, suggesting: “Honestly, if it’s an emergency, I think I pee my pants and then have my sister wipe my leg up.”

Duckie Thot swears cocoa butter is the secret to soft skin

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.

Kanye West backs label of former Yeezy designer Maisie Schloss

Kanye West has thrown his support behind the debut collection from his former Yeezy designer, Maisie Schloss.

The 27-year-old presented her inaugural womenswear collection for her label Maisie Wilen at the Night Gallery in Los Angeles’ Arts District, which featured a range of body-hugging, boldly patterned dresses, leggings and leotards inspired by rhythmic gymnastics.

Using vivid colours, warped prints and unusual materials – including embossed vinyl upholstery fabric – the collection featured a slip-dress in an orange and teal flame print, and a stretchy, ruched-front jacket in an abstract snake print.

West revealed that his highlight of Schloss’ debut collection were a pair of over-the-knee slime boots dipped in goo-green Latex.

“I told her that’s my favourite thing,” he said at the event.

The Life of Pablo rapper spent nearly two hours at the low-key, friends-and-family event, stopping to shake hands and chat, but declined interviews.

Schloss was a former womenswear designer for West’s Yeezy label, and she is the first to emerge from the 41-year-old’s recently announced brand-incubator programme, which provides seed funding, mentorship and studio space.

“I had the pleasure of working with Kanye for a number of years,” she said backstage before the presentation. “And when he approached me about this partnership, I was absolutely floored. It’s a dream come true.”

Schloss, who will present Maisie Wilen to the fashion industry in Paris later this month, was taken aback by West’s dedication.

“The variety of creativity he has and projects, and how much vision he has into things, he has music and fashion and will get into smaller side projects he’s suddenly a master in. He’s truly a genius,” she gushed.

Kanye West is launching a grant to help support emerging designers.

The rapper, who launched his Yeezy label in 2015, has set up a creative incubator programme to offer financial assistance and guidance to up-and-coming fashion designers.

The first recipient of the grant is Maisie Schloss, a former member of the Yeezy womenswear design team, who told editors at Vogue.com she wouldn’t have been able to achieve her vision without Kanye’s support.

“Yeezy is a really special environment for growing and developing a career. When I started, I was just an assistant, but the highly creative and unconventional atmosphere allowed for me to have visibility and input in a wide variety of projects,” Schloss said. “Kanye very generously offered to support me; he truly cares about sharing resources, creating opportunities for creatives to grow and be recognised.”

Schloss will launch her brand, Maisie Wilen, at an event in Los Angeles this week and in Paris later in June. It will feature an 85-piece resort collection, with items priced between $100 (£79) and $950 (£751).

“My first collection is inspired by rhythmic gymnastics and robotics, specifically studying how elegant fluidity emerges from rigid system,” the Parsons School of Design graduate continued. “Strongly driven by print, the clothes themselves are playful and fashion-forward but rooted in very wearable shapes.”

The rapper has previously offered his support to designers such as Louis Vuitton’s artistic director of menswear, Virgil Abloh, and Jerry Lorenzo, the founder of streetwear label Fear of God. He has also worked with young creatives such as archivist David Casavant and stylist Ursina Gysi.

Kim Kardashian had a pair of sunglasses from her debut collection made in a smaller size for her daughter North West so the youngster wouldn’t steal hers.

Last month (Apr19), the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced she had teamed up with eyewear brand Carolina Lemke on an initial collection of seven styles.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Kim shared a sweet snap of her daughter in a pair of glasses and revealed she designed some shades specifically for the five-year-old.

“I made her these kid size @carolinalemkeberlin sunglasses because I really wouldn’t share mine lol,” the 38-year-old quipped. “I love my fashionista Northie so much!”

The designer, who also founded the successful KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance lines, went on to share the extent of North’s love of fashion, admitting that she’ll often find her trying on her clothes.

“I didn’t think my daughters love for my clothes and jewellery would happen so soon,” the reality star confessed. “I’ll literally be working and come home to find North dressed up in all of my things.”

Last month, Heat magazine reported the youngster was set to follow in the footsteps of her father and Yeezy founder Kanye West, 41, with the release of her debut clothing line.

North looks set to curate the collection, which sources claim will be titled Sunday Best, and is said to have enlisted her six-year-old cousin Penelope Disick to offer a helping hand.

The collection will reportedly be inspired by Kanye’s Los Angeles-based church services, dubbed Sunday Service, which he took to Coachella last month.

Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster appears to be following in her mother’s stylish footsteps as she welcomed deliveries of infant-sized Adidas and Yeezy apparel.

Kylie, 21, took to Instagram Stories on Sunday morning (07Apr19) to share an unboxing video, giving fans a glimpse at the selection of items that had been sent for the 14-month-old tot.

In the clips, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star showed off the youngster’s new pairs of Adidas Falcons, along with what appears to be a selection of apparel, which came delivered in a personalised box.

The sneakers are off-white in colour with pale blue detailing at the top, and are complete with a dark panel around the base and a chunky sole.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul also shared a look at Stormi’s mini copper-coloured Yeezy Boost 350s, which had no doubt been gifted by Yeezy founder and the youngster’s uncle, Kanye West.

The beauty mogul previously had a million-dollar deal with Puma, which ended after two years, and the star now joins sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian, who also have close ties with the athletic company.

Stormi is Kylie’s only child with rapper Travis Scott, 26, and it was reported last month that she is keen to expand her family and give her daughter a sibling.

“They’ve spoken about having another baby,” an insider told Heat magazine. “Kylie would love to give Stormi a sibling and wants another girl. Travis wasn’t into it at first, but he’s happy to go along with it if it makes Kylie happy.”

Off-White has been named the hottest brand on the planet in Lyst’s quarterly rankings.

The results are released every three months based on the global fashion search engine’s analysis of the shopping behaviour of more than five million people across 12,000 designers and online stores. This accounts for Google search data, conversion rates, sales, brand mentions and engagement statistics on social media.

Off-White has risen 33 places over the past year, and has now surpassed Gucci and Balenciaga for the number one spot for the first time. These fashion houses are now in second and third place, respectively, followed by Nike, Prada, and Versace. Kanye West’s Yeezy takes seventh spot, while Vetements, Fendi, and Valentino round off the top ten.

This quarter, founder and chief executive officer, Virgil Abloh, released The Ten sneaker collaboration series with Nike and dressed Serena Williams for the 50th edition of the U.S. Open in New York.

Searches for Off-White across Lyst’s partner retailers are now up 14 per cent quarter on quarter, while traffic to Off-White products online increased 10 per cent in August (18).

The label’s logo belt and denim jacket also feature on Lyst’s women’s product list, but the top spot in these rankings went to Dior’s Saddle bag, which was recently resurrected by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Off-White was also honoured on Tuesday (23Oct18) when it was nominated in the prestigious Brand of the Year category at The Fashion Awards alongside Balenciaga, Burberry, Gucci, and Prada. The streetwear label has also received a nod in the Urban Luxe category, while Abloh is up for Designer of the Year for his work in the menswear department of Louis Vuitton.

Emily Ratajkowski enjoys searching the Internet for vintage pieces from her favourite designers.

The I Feel Pretty actress is one of the hottest names in Hollywood and is quickly building up a reputation for her ability to pull off just about any fashion or beauty trend.

While Emily undoubtedly has a wardrobe full of designer garments already, she loves to add to her clothing collection with rare items found online.

“For me, I feel like there’s certain things that you just can’t get (in shops),” she told U.S. InStyle. “Like I’m obsessed with Phoebe (Philo, former creative director of Celine), and I’m really sad to see her go, and being able to find those special Celine pieces online at eBay, that’s the kind of thing I’m hoping to give my friends, because that’s the kind of thing they’re not going to buy for themselves.”

Emily may get a thrill from finding exclusive clothes or shoes online, but she admitted that she’s not a huge shopper and doesn’t actually like to spend hours trying on outfits. Instead, she builds up a wish list so she can indulge herself from time to time.

“I like having my little wish list, and when I feel like ‘O.K., I haven’t shopped in a long time, I deserve a little treat,’ going through and being like I’m going to finally get that for myself. That’s such a good feeling,” the 27-year-old insisted.

As part of a partnership with eBay, she has shared her shopping list with her fans. Her picks for the forthcoming holiday season include a Hunting Season velvet shoulder bag, priced at $475 (£359), white Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers costing $220 (£166), a Christian Dior saddle bag and a diamond-encrusted Rolex watch.

Duckie Thot has been tapped as L’Oreal Paris’ latest spokesmodel.

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 and Moschino.

However, Duckie has now landed her biggest contract to date – a gig with French beauty giant L’Oreal.

“I’m honoured to represent L’Oreal Paris, a brand that celebrates infinite ways to be beautiful and makes products for all women,” she said in a statement, according to WWD. “I’m looking forward to helping more girls love the beauty of their dark skin. In my mind, I’m going back in time and telling the young girl I was: ‘Dream big, work hard and trust in yourself girl, because one day you’re going to say yes to the number-one beauty brand.'”

Duckie, 22, follows in the footsteps of celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Camila Cabello, Elle Fanning, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell in working with L’Oreal.

A teaser image from her debut photoshoot depicts her posing in a red dress with a slick of tangerine-coloured lipstick on her pout, and she will appear in L’Oreal campaigns promoting Volume Million Lashes mascara, Infallible Foundation, Colorista hair colour and Rouge Signature lipstick.

L’Oreal Paris global president Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou explained that he was thrilled to have Duckie onboard, especially considering her strong sense of identity and wide social media following.

“While emerging in a new generation of models, Duckie Thot knows how to use her voice to match the strength of her images,” he shared. “Her energy and message of inclusivity make her a perfect recruit for the L’Oreal Paris family: original and confident in her self-worth. We’re delighted to welcome Duckie and for her to continue motivating women to believe in their own beauty around the globe.”

Duckie, real name Nyadak Thot, will make her first official appearance for L’Oreal at a show to be held by the company as part of Paris Fashion Week on 30 September (18).
