Lauren Hutton is returning to the silver screen—or, rather, your computer screen—in Walking Stories, a romantic comedy created by Luca Guadagnino for Salvatore Ferragamo. The film captures a love story that unfolds in three cities near and dear to Mr. Ferragamo’s heart: Los Angeles, where his brand flourished; Shanghai, where the future of fashion lies; and Florence, his beloved hometown. Alongside Hutton, fresh faces such as Kaya Scodelario, Billy Magnussen, and Nathalie Buscombe bring the tale to life (and the rising stars look good doing it—decked out in Ferragamo, naturally). Walking Stories premieres October 8 on www.ferragamo.com, and will be followed by eight biweekly episodes and behind-the-scenes footage. A series of film stills debuts here, exclusively on Style.com.

Lately, model Agyness Deyn has been making headlines with her provocative role as a stripper in the upcoming Danish film Pusher, but she also has another acting role up her sleeve. Deyn is the star of Waris Ahluwalia’s latest project for The Luxury Collection Hotels—a short film (which he told Style.com about a while back) entitled HERE. Deyn is part of an all-star cast Ahluwalia enlisted for the movie—Tilda Swinton conceived the short with the designer, I Am Love‘s Luca Guadagnino directed it, Heidi Bivens designed the costumes, and Jason Schwartzman created the soundtrack. The film, which follows a coast-to-coast romantic voyage between three of the Collection’s hotels, doesn’t go live (on TheLuxuryCollection.com/TheFilmHere) until January 24, but Style.com has the exclusive first look at the teaser (above).
