Penélope Cruz Does Lingerie: Famed lingerie brand Agent Provocateur has teamed up with Penélope Cruz and sister Mónica to design a diffusion line of lower-priced merchandise.

The merch will hit stores and online this March, giving AP fans something to get excited for. This isn’t the first time that the Cruz sisters have teamed up on a fashion endeavor—they’ve previously collaborated with Mango and accessories brand Samantha Thavasa. [WWD]

A New Vogue Documentary: It’s safe to say that 2009’s film The September Issue was a big hit with fashion fans for its inside look at Vogue magazine’s operations. And since Anna Wintour is known to please, now comes part two—well kind of. In celebration of the magazine’s 120th anniversary, HBO will air a new original documentary on December 6 titled In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye. It’ll feature interviews with celebrities (Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker), designers (Vera Wang, Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquière), and Vogue editors themselves. “The editors…have always been our secret weapon, so it seemed to me that we could celebrate Vogue and also, at the same time, celebrate these great editors,” Anna Wintour said in a statement.

Hedi Slimane and The Rolling Stones?: Hedi Slimane managed to keep himself out of the news for approximately one week, before today’s development broke. He may be designing a tour wardrobe for The Rolling Stones. And though YSL reps have not offered comment on the matter, the reports makes sense, given that Slimane’s previously designed on-stage ensembles for skinny jean-loving bands like Franz Ferdinand and Sonic Youth. His premiere collection for YSL was filled with ‘70s rock star references. The Stones will kick off their latest tour in London on November 25. [ELLE UK]
