"My team doesn't just extend to my work team," said Donatella Versace in an official statement about her massive Fall 2018 ad campaign, lensed by Steven Meisel. "The Versace Clans are made of all members of the Versace family — from customers to models, fans, photographers, stylists, friends, artists and all who believe that staying relevant means moving forward and making your voice heard — all who believe that fashion is not a way to just say 'look at me' but rather 'look at me, I have something to say.'"

A whopping 54 models were cast for the campaign, ranging from new kids to longtime Versace muses. The list includes Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Iman Hammam, Vittoria Ceretti, Adut Akech, Stella Maxwell, Grace Elizabeth, Lexi Boling, Natalie Westling, Fei Fei Sun, Hiandra Martinez, Julia Nobis and more, more, more.

Kendall Jenner Fronts Longchamp 'Modern Amazon' Fall Winter 2018.19 Campaign

Kendall Jenner continues her relationship with the Longchamp family, styled by Sara Moonves in images by David Sims for the Fall Winter 2018.19 ad campaign.

The spirit of the campaign is notable for its youth, freshness and sensuality. Each of the three double-page spreads juxtaposes two visuals, a portrait and a silhouette, in a dynamic layout which highlights different facets of the “modern Amazon”. Kendall is by turns feisty in a lamb and rabbit-fur coat with black and orange zigzag stripes, sexy in a fluid velvet tuxedo, and irreverent in a sumptuous shearling coat which showcases Longchamp’s heritage of leather craftsmanship. In each visual, she wears a variation on the season’s star Amazone bag, as if to make the point that the three moods are all expressions of one and the same personality.

Trump Treason Talk Saturates American Media As Protesters Call Trump Putin's Puppet


Writing for The Boston GlobeJohn Shattuck asks Is Donald Trump committing treason? In fact, of the top 10 trending articles on the Globe, two more use the world treason or a derivative: Trump the traitor and 'Treasonous,' 'disgraceful': Reaction to trump's press conference with Putin. 

Merriam-Webster reports that “treason,” “traitor” and “collusion” were top searches for word definitions, soaring after US President Donald Trump gave his jaw-dropping press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin. 

Politico reviewed reactions to the Trump-Putin bromance, noting that "New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow was among the first to apply the “T” word to the president in a prescient Monday piece titled “Trump, Treasonous Traitor,” which appeared just hours before the presser. “It was nothing short of treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan tweetedof Trump’s press conference performance. “I’m so sorry the Commander-in-chief is a traitor,” tweeted Michael Moore, agreeing with Brennan for the first time ever. Tea Party stalwart Joe Walsh said the same. “Trump the Traitor,” read the headline on Boston Globe columnist Michael A. Cohen’s Monday afternoon piece. He concluded, “Trump is a clear and present danger to US national security.”'

Allez les Bleus! Brigitte Macron Wears LBD, Twinning With World Cup Winners In Louis Vuitton


France's First Lady Brigitte Macron joined her husband President Emanuel Macron in welcoming the French soccer team to the Elysée Palace today. Macron turned to her frequent designer Louis Vuitton to celebrate France's World Cup win in a chic LBD -- in bleu, of course. Vogue writes:

Macron’s minimal dress was in line with her previous pieces designed by Nicolas Ghesquière. The cap sleeves were an elegant alternative to going sleeveless for summer, and balanced the above-the-knee length. A topstitched center-front seam created an elongating effect, as did her pale, neutral-toned pumps. But the best part of Macron’s look? Twinning with the victors in navy blue.
