Beyoncé Rocks Tom Ford; Fast Retailing Backs Out of J. Crew Deal

And Kate Moss writes for 'Vogue UK.'

Beyoncé Rocks Tom Ford: Jay Z has been very vocal over the years about his love for Tom Ford—the rapper dedicated an entire track to the designer on his 2013 album and even had his team design jerseys emblazoned with Ford’s name. At London Fashion Week this past February, Ford sent sequined dresses down the runway inspired by Jay Z’s own creations, sporting the famous phrase, "I don't pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford." To bring things full circle, on the German leg of her world tour, Beyoncé appeared on stage in one of Ford's glistening designs. [The Telegraph]

Fast Retailing Backs Out of J. Crew Deal: Although there was speculation that Japanese fashion conglomorate, Fast Retailing, was in talks to purchase J. Crew, the company has reportedly backed out of the deal. According to WWD, sources said that the high-price tag of $5 billion, as well as the details leaked to the press, may be the reason behind Fast Retailing's decision. [WWD]

Kate Moss Writes For Vogue UK: For her premier Vogue UK column, the 40-year-old supermodel took on an emotional assignment. Reviewing the most recent album by long-time friend, George Michael, Moss raves that “'You’ve Changed' feels fragile and honest; it almost makes me cry. For me, it's the vulnerability, openness, and richness of his voice that does it. The depth of where that comes from touches you in a place that you can't even begin to understand and all of a sudden it's not just a song any more; it becomes an emotion and it takes you into another dimension. That's George's voice.” [The Cut]
