Let’s get straight down to business; Beyoncé
business. My gurl’s Super Bowl outfit was designed by Rubin Singer and included leather from both pythons and iguanas. Cool. Her booties were by Proenza Schouler
(COOL) and her manicure featured a glam black and gold chevron print. Also, I still feel bad for Michelle.
Naomi Campbell is on the cover of the upcoming issue of Vogue Italia to hype up her new reality show The Face/show the new girls how it’s done. Steven Meisel shot a behind the scenes video of her smoking against a leaning board and talking about faceless snakes.
’s got some competition: Black Keys
drummer Patrick Carney is a new investor in sock company Richer Poorer.
Free People have released their first fashion film, a lens flare-heavy love story called Roshambo. It stars Christopher Abbott - best known for playing Charlie in Girls
and not smiling ever – and Sheila Marquez. Considering Free People is basically the last place left on earth/in Brooklyn that is using the descriptor “Boho” sincerely, it’s pretty good! Lots of folk-inspired embroidery and t-shirt-slash-ponchos to twirl the streets of Williamsburg in.

The part of Florence + the Machine
that isn’t a machine has launched a capsule collection of silver jewellery inspired by her most recent album, Ceremonials. The range is for sale on Florence’s online boutique, which is called Flotique. Obv.
Gisele Bundchen has been named the face of Chanel’s new make up range. It’s called Les Beiges, which sums up how I feel about this. Really? Gisele? Really? Snooze.
The lookbook for JW Anderson’s rad second Topshop
collection was released this week and is full of pictures of models who look like they want to eat the souls of the unborn. FASHION!
Michelle Tanners aka Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
are releasing a line of handbags for their label Elizabeth and James. The range includes “hobo bags” and designs made from "New Zealand lambskin accented with stamped lizard trim." I’d rather buy a “rich socialite bag” woven from the tufts of hair plucked from Ashley Olsen’s hairbrush. Please, no one tell Anderson about this.
is channeling her ‘90s self with her label L.A.M.B.
’s new collab with outerwear brand Burton (not Tim, unfortch). The range hoped to blend “Gwen’s bold style combined with on-mountain functionality,” but all I can see is a combination of gross rave kid with the fun part of Rasta culture (AKA the dope part and not the “women have to cook for you except when they’re menstruating” part).
In old, white lady news: over the weekend the Anjelica Huston
-directed fashion film for Donna Karan hosiery premiered in New York. Anje told Fashionista, “We met through Barbra Streisand who is a friend of Donna’s,” and also, “I love that I can go get a scarf for $12, I think that’s great.” Same, babe.

Speaking of Donna Karan

Not content with just being one the world’s most famous designers, a photographer, a hater-of-fat-people and Azealia Banks’ bestie, Karl Lagerfeld also wants to make sure you know he’s also a car guy. His new photography exhibition is dedicated to his Rolls Royces, which he doesn’t drive because of a tendency to fall asleep at the wheel and get into “terrible” accidents. In retrospect, he says, “I was not a good driver,” but we like to imagine at the time it was more like this.
