Yohji Yamamoto Makes Us Want to Be a Part of This Soccer Team, Chelsea Handler Goes Out With a Bang, and More of the News You Missed Today

-------

adidas-sizedYamamoto for Real Madrid…
Today is a good day for fashion-crazed fans looking for another reason to justify watching sports, as Yohji Yamamoto has signed on to create jerseys for the Spanish soccer team Real Madrid. The Yamamoto-designed shirts will be the players’ third option, worn only if both the home and away uniforms are too similar to the opponents’. We guess Real Madrid agrees that your best outfits should be kept for very special occasions. [The New York Times]

Chelsea Handler signs off…
In a star-studded final episode of Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler said good-bye to late-night television. From a shower scene with Ellen DeGeneres to an intervention by Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock, the show had no shortage of funny moments. Our favorite part? The celebrity-packed sing-along, which featured a mix of stars including Gerard Butler, Fergie, Tim Gunn, Selena Gomez, and Gwen Stefani. [Elle]

Instagram’s new video app…
Just in time for the social media madness that is NYFW, Instagram has launched a new video app called Hyperlapse. The app features built-in stabilization technology, which allows users to create professional-looking time-lapse videos, previously only possible through the use of expensive equipment. We can’t wait to see how editors and bloggers use this one to introduce the new collections to the world. [Forbes]

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett reunite again…
They’ve created an album together, so why not front a campaign together? Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett were announced today as the stars of this year’s H&M holiday campaign. The two will be featured in a TV commercial, as well as print and online ads, due to debut at the end of November. [WWD]

Melissa McCarthy memorable moments…
Remember when she was just the adorable Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls? We sure do. (Full disclosure: There are more than a few GG fans in the Style.com offices.) In honor of her 44th birthday, a look back at McCarthy’s style evolution. Somehow, a jean jacket seems acceptable on the red carpet when it’s worn by one of the most hilarious ladies out there.

-------

Looking to soak up the last few rays of summer sun (fashion month is only a few weeks away), models swapped their stilettos for sandals as they flocked to sand and sea to unwind—and luckily for us, they Instagrammed every moment along the way. Sporting a scuba mask, Josephine Skriver cozied up with a sea turtle, while Cora Emmanuel snapped a selfie from the clear aqua waves of her native Martinique. Anja Rubik chilled out #onaboat, inspiring a case of serious desk-side envy. Check out 10 of our favorite models’ vacation snapshots from the week, below.

Cathy Horyn on Fashion’s New Benchmark, Instagram’s Biggest Daredevils, and More of the News You Missed Today

-------


Cathy Horyn on the commercialization of high fashion…
Are designers running out of ideas? Or are straightforward clothes just a sign of the times? “I suspect that many women are thrilled to find clothes that promise more wear, given the money they’re spending,” writes Horyn. [T]

New York’s Instagram outlaws…
NYC risk-takers are soaring to Instagram fame by snapping photos from difficult-to-access, restricted locations. Be it rooftop skyline shots or a sunrise view from the Brooklyn Bridge, their street photography is almost a competition, each photo seemingly more dangerous than the last. The only issue these daredevils face? Making sure they don’t get caught… [New York]

Gisele does it again…
Forbes has revealed its list of the 21 highest-paid models and it comes as no surprise that model mogul Gisele Bündchen has topped the list for the eighth year running. Cara Delevingne made the cut, but despite her many campaigns with fashion powerhouses like Mulberry, Burberry, and DKNY, she was still beaten out by her BFF Jourdan Dunn. Others on the list include Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, and the legendary Kate Moss. [The Telegraph]

Is there a future for facekinis?
Carine Roitfeld just took the sun-smart movement to a whole new extreme with the introduction of the facekini. The sun protective face mask, which makes an appearance in a new CR Fashion Book shoot, is reportedly already big in China. It may have the Roitfeld seal of approval, but for now, we think we’ll stick to sunscreen and straw hats. [The Independent]

Val Kilmer, actor and artist…
Showcasing that he is a man of many talents, Val Kilmer is trying his hand at another form of creative expression. The former Batman actor is now selling his own hand-painted works of art on his website for upwards of $1,000 a pop. [valkilmer.com]

Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel wrapped up a 1 a.m. photo shoot and celebrated in the best way we could think of: with a slice of pizza. Here’s how 10 top models satisfy their cravings. But hold your #YouDidNotEatThat comments for now, they aren’t all high-calorie.

Aritzia Launches Its #FallForUs Social Media Campaign

-------

Samira Wiley-blog
In today’s social-media-addicted culture, launching a successful brand campaign doesn’t require a blockbuster advertising budget or smooth-talking ad man, à la Don Draper. After all, who pays attention to billboards now when we’re all glued to our iPhones? These days, all it takes to go viral is a creative concept, a catchy hashtag, and engaging the right people (with good looks and lots of followers, of course) across multiple digital platforms.

Aritzia is the latest company courting selfie-obsessed Millennials with its new #FallForUs campaign that will be rolled out on Instagram this week. To kick off the conversation, the popular Canadian retailer—which has been building up its presence in the U.S.—tapped more than 150 cool girls to style and share their favorite pieces (through Olapic, all looks will become instantly shoppable) from the brand’s Fall collection, hitting stores now.

christina-blogAritzia cast a wide net for the project, shooting a dynamic mix of young influencers, including fresh-faced actresses (Jamie Chung; Rachel Brosnahan from House of Cards; and Samira Wiley, who plays our favorite character on Orange Is the New Black), musicians (Estelle and Soko), bloggers (among them, Leandra Medine and Christina Caradona), editors, and more.

“I was thrilled when Aritzia asked me to be a part of its campaign,” Chung told Style.com. “I filmed in Vancouver for years and would blow a good portion of my paycheck there on classic pieces with an edgy tweak.” Meanwhile, Greta Lee, who regularly makes appearances on Girls and Inside Amy Schumer, couldn’t get enough of her outfit for the shoot. “I think you can really see each woman’s individual personality come through. They let me go for this whole fuzzy Eskimo vibe that I was really feeling for some reason on an unbelievably humid day in New York,” she said.

Aside from getting to play dress-up, the best part of Brosnahan’s Aritzia experience was “shooting alongside some strong, badass young women whom I admire.” Caradona concurred: “I loved the diversity of women who were a part of the campaign. So many rad and unique individuals making an impact in the world!” With outspoken advocates like that, we’d estimate #FallForUs just might give #MyCalvins a run for its money.
