Rihanna Poses Topless for 'Lui'; Rita Ora Rumored As Face of Roberto Cavalli

And Jil Sander announces new creative director.

Rihanna Poses Topless for Lui Magazine: Always one to make a fashion statement, it seems that recently Rihanna prefers to be naked for her photo shoots. The pop diva posed topless—bearing little more than small bottoms, tattoos, and body jewelry (including a nipple ring)—for this month’s issue of Lui, a French men’s magazine. The spread, photographed in L.A. earlier this month by Mario Sorrenti, follows the current issue of Vogue Brazil in which Bad Gal RiRi models more jewelry than clothing. [Lui]

Rita Ora Rumored As Face Of Roberto Cavalli: After reaching a breach of contract settlement with Italian shoe company Superga for being photographed in a rival’s kicks, the British singer may have landed herself another major modeling campaign. While not officially confirmed, Ora has been dropping hints that she's at work with Italian designer Roberto Cavalli on her Instagram feed. A photo with the designer’s wife, Eva, was captioned “Get ready bots we might have another surprise for you @eva_cavalli,” while another photo with photographer Francesco Carrozzini said, “I think we did it again my friend @francescocarrozzini.” [The Telegraph

Jil Sander Announces New Creative Director: After announcing her departure from her namesake label for the third time last October, Jil Sander has named Rodolfo Paglialunga the brand’s next creative director. "He is the most fitting designer to write the new pages of the Jil Sander story," Alessandro Cremonesi, chief executive officer of the company, said. "He has the right characteristics and the experience to evolve the Jil Sander brand in a new direction while respecting its essential traits." Paglialunga, who has held previous design positions at Prada and Vionnet, will send his debut collection down the runway at Milan Fashion Week in September. [Vogue UK]
