Solange Knowles’s Met Gala Clutch ‘Worth Fighting For’; Nicolas Ghesquiere Brings Top Talent to First Louis Vuitton Campaign

And Chris Martin denies dating Alexa Chung.

Solange Knowles’ Met Gala Clutch is ‘Worth Fighting For’: While the world is trying to piece together what exactly made Solange go H.A.M. on her brother-in-law Jay Z following this year's Met Gala, one luxury designer is using the singer’s unwanted publicity to her advantage. Anya Hindmarch, who designed the metal “Crisp Packet Clutch” Beyonce’s younger sister was seen sporting on the red carpet (and which later made an appearance in the elevator altercation), has launched a new campaign with the slogan “worth fighting for.” Seems like the best answer we’ve received so far.

Nicolas Ghesquiere Brings Top Talent to First Vuitton Campaign: For his first fashion campaign as creative director of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquiere is not wasting any time booking the best talent in the business—beginning with three leading photographers. Blending the genius of Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, and Juergen Teller, the international adverts will feature the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, as well as models Liya Kebede and Freja Beha Erichsen, who both walked in last season's presentation.

Chris Martin Denies Dating Alexa Chung: When the Coldplay front man was spotted at a New York bar with British model-turned-TV personality Alexa Chung following his "conscious uncoupling" from wife Gwyneth Paltrow, speculations immediately swirled as to whether or not the two were dating. “Tucked away together in a dark corner” of a New York bar, one witness said, the duo “seemed to know each other really well. They were both in a good mood.” On Wednesday, however, Martin's people set the record straight, telling The Metro that he and Chung “are definitely not dating.” [Vogue UK]
