Beyoncé and Terry Richardson Took a Trip to Coney Island

-------

Looks like Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus have something in common after all. “XO,” one of the seventeen videos included on Mrs. Carter’s new self-titled album that caused the Internet to combust after its surprise release on Friday, was directed by Terry Richardson—yes, the same Terry Richardson responsible for Cyrus’ nude ride on a wrecking ball. However, starring models Jourdan Dunn and Jessica White and shot on Coney Island, Bey’s vid, while tastefully gritty, is predictably more highbrow. Have a watch, above.

Walk It Out, Coco

-------

If you could walk a mile in her boots…you’d be helping Nine West fight cancer. The footwear brand has partnered with the CFDA to create its Nine West Runway Relief initiative. For New York fashion week, the label is strapping Coco Rocha (pictured), Jessica White, and Lisalla Montenegro into a pair of its new boots, specially equipped with a pedometer; for each step the girls take, a donation will be made to the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer charity. If you like the high, multi-buckled boots yourself, good news: You don’t have to be a model to get a pair (though you do have to be quick). A limited number will be available for sale on Nine West’s Facebook page for $199.

Quiet On The Set, Please, Someone’s Butt Is Getting Bit

-------

Club Monaco has leapt into spring with help from an old hand, 80-year-old photographer Bert Stern. The lensman—best known for his photographs of Marilyn Monroe—shot the brand’s latest campaign, and blowups of the resulting black-and-white images loomed over the party Club Monaco threw last night at its Fifth Avenue boutique.

Known as a creator of classy, feminine photographs but not necessarily as a people person, Stern spent most of the evening downstairs in the quieter men’s department; upstairs, the swirl included jewelry designer Eddie Borgo and style documentarians Scott Schuman and Garance Doré. Lorenzo Martone found himself toting around Jessica White’s bag while she did some shopping. “Light-colored things,” White (pictured, right) explained. “I like very dark colors, but I’m going to lighten up my hair for the springtime—it’s going to be a reddish-brown. So it’s about soft, neutral colors.”

While her friend and fellow model Irina Shayk (pictured, left) wandered off with the personal shopper they were sharing, White recounted getting in trouble not so long ago for racy pictures leaked from the set of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. “We did a sandwich position where the photographer and the makeup artist were biting my buttocks. People took it really seriously. I had to make a public statement. So now I won’t allow people to take photographs on set anymore. They can’t photograph me getting my butt bit,” she explained. Presumably, that’s never been an issue for Stern.

Ruffian’s Heirs Apparent

-------

“Simplicity looks fresh again,” Ruffian’s Claude Morais said at the Ace Hotel last night. He and partner Brian Wolk were sipping Champagne in the hotel’s basement Liberty Lounge to celebrate the arrival of Threads & Heirs, their debut menswear collection for Macy’s. And even if the goods were not quite what you’d expect from the frills-and-frips Ruffian boys, the guys assembled—including Lorenzo Martone, who came on the arm of Jessica White; Paper magazine’s Luigi Tadini, who hosted the fête (pictured above, with Wolk and Morais); and Timo Weiland—all looked well pleased. “We’re pretty classic American boys,” Wolk told Style.com at the announcement of the collaboration with the historic retailer, and here were classic American pieces: seersucker jackets, short-sleeved cotton button-downs, military-inspired flak jackets. Classic boys, maybe, but not boys-only. “I have a rack of pieces in the studio and I have to keep asking them to send me more,” Morais said with a laugh. “The girls keep grabbing the polos, the cardigans.” As if on cue, a Ruffian gal in a striped men’s polo floated by.
