In the male-dominated world of fashion, where successful female designers are seriously outnumbered, Donna Karan has managed to build a decade-spanning empire fueled by girl power. “I believe women are complex and full of emotion and feelings,” Karan says of the principles that guide her, whether she’s designing a collection for her stalwart fan base—or a fragrance. Her latest scent is a tribute to these longtime admirers. Simply called Woman, it was created through an exercise in sisterhood: Celebrated female perfumer Anne Flipo blended the orange flower, Haitian vetiver, and sandalwood eau; renowned Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid lent her skills to a new version of Karan’s iconic Cashmere Mist flacon, originally designed in 1994 by her late husband, the sculptor Stephan Weiss; and a trio of well-loved, multigenerational catwalkers, including Karolina Kurkova, Liya Kebede, and Christy Turlington-Burns, star in the Inez & Vinoodh-lensed ad campaign. Needless to say, it arrives on shelves this month with a roar, not a whisper.

Needless to say, Skipper is terrified. [Daily Mail]
