It can potentially help the French couture house overtake Louis Vuitton’s leading position in the luxury industry.
Transgender model Leyna Bloom continues to break barriers, but she says she’s just like everyone else. “I consider myself a person that is just out here and I do what I do and speak up for people who don’t have voices. And I speak up for myself.” Bloom said she didn’t sign up to be an influencer. Her high-profile status is almost accidental. The attention started to get real late one night in April 2018 when she decided to post her ambitions of one day walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Twitter. Victoria’s Secret’s insensitive response received backlash and the brand eventually issued an apology. “Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is.” Bloom is clear that she doesn’t discourage other transwomen from working with Victoria’s Secret. It’s just fallen off her own personal radar. Instead, she’s focusing her energy on working with people who she feels are genuinely inclusive. In addition to her recent debut at Cannes, Bloom also served as the face of British lingerie brand Playful Promises 15-year anniversary collection, which launched in June. Last year, she posed in H&M’s Pride campaign. This year, she’s part of the Saks Fifth Avenue x Stonewall Gives Back Initiative. Tap the link in bio for more.

Kim Kardashian, a self-proclaimed proponent of Spanx, is taking on the shapewear category with her own line. Tuesday morning, the reality TV star revealed her latest brand, Kimono, a collection of skin tone-colored shapewear. Kardashian shared the news on her Instagram, posting a series of photos from the brand with a caption stating the brand has been 15 years in the works. “Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work,” she wrote. “I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn’t find a shapewear color that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this.” Report: @laylailchi 📸: @kimkardashian . . . #wwdfashion #kimkardashian #Kimono
Donatella Versace has been named a Stonewall ambassador.
The Italian designer has long voiced her support for LGBTQ equality. Words cannot express how honored I am to have been named an ambassador of Stonewall Inn,” Versace said. “What happened here in 1969 was something extraordinary that caught the attention of the world on the issues of diversity, equality, basic civil rights and acceptance. Today, we celebrate the enormous achievements of 50 years of fighting against prejudice and injustice and I could not be more proud to add my voice to the ones of millions of other people who have the strength and courage to demand a change in the status quo. For a better life for everyone. For a better world.” Tap the link in bio for more. Report: Luisa Zargani . . . . #wwdfashion #donatellaversace #stonewall #pride
The Karl Lagerfeld brand is launching a makeup collection with L’Oréal Paris. Karl Lagerfeld had a great appreciation for makeup, using eye shadow to hand-color his dreamy fashion illustrations. The late designer was also famous for conceiving entire fashion collections in his sleep — up to and including the beauty look. Among the many projects he had initiated before his passing in February was a makeup range in collaboration with L’Oréal Paris that channeled his “rock-chic style, fused with a sense of Parisian elegance,” according to the partners.
