The 2012 Olympic Games are gearing up to be quite the fashionable affair. More reports have surfaced that the likes of supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole, Stella Tennant, and Georgia May Jagger are expected to strut their stuff at the closing ceremony in clothes by Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Vivienne Westwood. The Englishwomen are doing it for love of country rather than financial reward—they’ll receive only 1 pound sterling each for their participation. [Telegraph]
In other supermodel news, Miranda Kerr divulged some of her secrets to Vogue U.K. The Victoria’s Secret stunner says she wanted to be a gymnast when she was younger, but that she was too tall and that modeling was never part of her life plan. Kerr also addressed the rumors of her talent for singing. “I love singing for my own benefit,” she said. “But will there be an album one day? Who knows? It’s not on my schedule right now.” [Vogue U.K.]
Congratulations are in order for Carolina Herrera. The designer will be the recipient of the Superstar Award at Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars gala this coming fall.

The annual event will take place on October 25 with a Dreamcatchers theme. [WWD]
How many different variations of a Louis Vuitton handbag can you make? 80,000, apparently. The French house is launching a new service starting July 30, where customers can create their own bespoke handbags at the Haute Maroquinerie, a private salon in Vuitton’s Bond Street store. [Vogue U.K.]
Last week, George Michael tweeted the news that Kate Moss would be the star of his new music video and now you can get a sneak peek at the supermodel’s performance. Unlike the barely-there bikini getup that she wore for the White Stripes, Moss dons a modest, oversized shaggy coat. Catch the full video tomorrow. [Telegraph]
Riccardo Tisci asked models Stella Tennant, Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan (pictured), Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga to bring their best dance moves for his latest Givenchy rave ad campaign. See how they did in this Style.com exclusive behind-the-scenes video, shot on set with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Plus, we’ve got an unseen campaign image, above.
Last season, Gisele led the pack at Givenchy, but Riccardo Tisci already has a new set of stars. Replacing Bündchen is Stella Tennant, who is featured in the campaign image (above) the label released this morning, along with Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga. Of the Fall 2012 shots, lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Carine Roitfeld, Tisci tells WWD, “It is about happiness and the freedom of expressing yourself with your body. It shows a dynamic, happy, and fun world, which is what fashion needs.” Of the British stunner, he says, “Stella represents modernity, elegance, masculinity, and femininity at the same time, together with a dynamic, energetic beauty.”
The look of Italian heritage footwear label Attilio Giusti Leombruni is simple and elegant, just like the brand’s muse, Stella Tennant. “Stella is an authentic and original beauty,” states AGL creative and brand director Vera Giusti. “We have chosen her as spokeswoman for our advertising campaign because she wears her 40 years with supreme elegance. In addition to being a fashion icon, she is a real woman.”
Real women are exactly what AGL is all about—the family-run business is run by a third-generation trio of ladies. Thus, AGL designer Marianna Giusti does not create “suffer in the name of fashion” heels, but rather, a collection of sleek, minimalist ballet flats, boots, brogues, and sandals. AGL’s Fall ’12 campaign (lensed by photographer Paolo Roversi), featuring Tennant wearing AGL’s latest over-the-knee boots and classic patent leather brogues, reflects that same minimalist aesthetic. Style.com has the exclusive first look at the ad campaign video. Watch Tennant (now in her second season with the label) show off the newest collection of covetable shoes, below.
