and John Galliano will finally speak in Vanity Fair.

Suri Cruise to Launch Fashion Line?: The Sun reports that Suri Cruise, daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, has signed a multi-million dollar deal to launch her own fashion line. The collection, aptly named “Suri,” is aimed at young girls and will reportedly include dresses, tops, jeans, shoes, and accessories. According to The Sun, “Suri” is set to launch this fall in a New York department store, and, if successful, will expand to stores across North America next year. [The Sun]

Keith Richards’ Saint Laurent Tour Wardrobe: Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ tour wardrobe, designed by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent, will soon be available for purchase. The range of bespoke pieces consists of silk scarves, T-shirts, a leather vest, and a jacket, all named “Keith” after the rock and roll veteran. Slimane has dressed Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for past Rolling Stones tours, but this marks the first time the designer has collaborated with Richards. [British Vogue]

Galliano Finally Speaks: Since his controversial departure from the helm of Christian Dior, in which he was ousted after slurring a string of anti-Semitic remarks, John Galliano has kept tight-lipped in the press. But, according to Women’s Wear Daily, the designer will give his first tell-all interview since his abrupt exit from the fashion world in the July issue of Vanity Fair. When asked about the subject of the interview, Galliano’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, told WWD, “I have no idea because I haven’t seen the article. I don’t know if there’s a slant.” Rosenberg declined to comment on why the designer chose to speak to Vanity Fair as opposed to other publications. [WWD]

Orthodox Jewish Style: Orthodox Jewish women are pushing the boundaries of their strict dress code. According to Fashionista, there's a new coterie of observers in Crown Heights, Brooklyn who have found a way to abide by Judiasm’s sartorial rules and still be fashionable. To help them on their way, new blogs, designers, and boutiques promoting Orthodox Jewish style have also been cropping up. [Fashionista]

Call for Reform in Bangladesh: Bangladesh has suffered a series of factory-based disasters over the past six months, and another factory fire, in the Mirpur industrial district in Dhaka, has raised the death toll even higher. The most reason tragedy has expedited the IndustriALL Global Union’s efforts to pass a new deal on fire and building safety, which is expected to include an improved system of inspections, training, and finances, as well as stronger efforts to urge workers to refuse to perform potentially hazardous work.

Jemima Models For Mom: Girls actress Jemima Kirke has already fronted ad campaigns for jeweler Allison Lou and bridal company Stone Fox Bride (in which she locked lips with Pamela Love), and now, she’s bringing her modeling work closer to home by modeling mother Lorraine Kirke’s repurposed vintage dresses, which she sells at her West Village boutique Gemilona. Jemima’s sisters Domino and Lola also star. [The Cut]

Kensington Palace’s Fashion Exhibition: A new exhibition at Kensington Palace, titled Fashion Rules, will feature dresses from the collections of Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, and the late Diana, Princess of Wales. "This exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to get up close to these wonderful dresses and be transported to the times in which they were worn,” Cassie Davies-Strodder, the exhibition’s curator, said. “Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales all have a special connection with Kensington Palace, making it the perfect location to celebrate these modern royal women in their fashion heyday.” Fashion Rules will open on July 4.
