Kristen Stewart Named Face of Chanel; Ryan Lochte Dabbles in Fashion Design


Kristen Stewart Named Face of Chanel: Sullen, sartorial star Kristen Stewart has been confirmed as the face of the 2013 Métiers d'Art Paris-Dallas collection campaign. The campaign, which was shot by Karl Lagerfeld, will be released in May 2014. On Tuesday evening, the actress attended the brand's latest Métiers d'Art show in Dallas, clad head to toe in Chanel from the Spring/Summer 2014 show. The star follows in the footsteps of Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, and Diane Kruger, who all all headlined Chanel campaigns. [Vogue UK]

Ryan Lochte Dabbles in Fashion Design: The swimmer and 11-time Olympic medalist's fashion design career is gaining steam. Following the success of his signature Ryan Lochte sneakers, Lochte has partnered with Speedo to co-design a limited-edition swim cap with artist Dave Kinsey. All proceeds from the $20 cap will benefit a non-profit organization that fights Duchenne, a form of muscular dystrophy, and a cause Lochte's supported for several years. The cap, like Lochte's sneakers, sport a green, yellow, and black color scheme. [Fashionista]

Gisele Blends Breastfeeding into her Beauty Routine: Supermodel Gisele Bündchen shared a photo on Instagram this week breast-feeding her one-year-old daughter while being attended to by a manicurist and a stylist. The world's highest-earning model captioned the picture image, "What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #getting ready." The supermodel seems unaware or dismissive of the societal stigma that is often attached to public displays of breastfeeding. Of course, her blasé glamorization of breastfeeding is in keeping with Bundchen's beliefs; she famously remarked that there should be a worldwide law enforcing all mothers to breastfeed for six months.

John Galliano Teams Up with Stephen Fry: John Galliano will design the costumes for Stephen Fry's new stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, in which Fry will both direct the production and play the role of Lady Bracknell. Rumors of Galliano's involvement in the play first surfaced in July. Galliano is an ideal candidate for the job, having already dressed the character of Lady Bracknell in a 1982 production at the National Theater. [Vogue UK]
