Jennifer Lopez is the New Face of Coach
Jennifer Lopez was recently announced as the new global face of Coach, an assignment that sees her fronting all campaigns for the brand. “I’m so excited for this collaboration with Coach. It is a timeless brand that I’ve always been a fan of and the upcoming collection really speaks to my personal style – an uptown-downtown mix,” she shared in a statement with the press. We’re getting whiplash from trying to keep up with all of the new celebrity/brand collaborations. How about you?
Kylie Jenner Sells Majority Stake of Her Cosmetics Company
When Kylie Jenner launched her cosmetics company with those lip kits in 2015, not only did the products instantly sell out, but the amount of people flocking to her website caused it to crash. Since then, Jenner has become a “self-made” billionaire, according to Forbes, with the help of surprise product drops on social media, collaborations with her famous family, sell-out pop-ups, and a distribution deal with Ulta.
Last week, her fans were shocked when news broke that Jenner had sold a majority stake in her company to Coty Inc. for a total of $600 million. “With a single post, she’s able to reach more than double the number of people who watch the Super Bowl every year,” came the reasoning for the buy supplied by Coty’s CFO, Pierre-André Terisse. Sounds like a solid investment to us.
Victoria’s Secret Cancels Fashion Show
After more than two decades of bedazzled bras and extravagant angel’s wings, Victoria’s Secret is cancelling its annual fashion show. Not only has viewership been declining steadily in the 2010s, but so have company sales. A strong backlash against the body image that the brand promotes has been met with an attempt to be more inclusive, but many felt that it was ‘too little, too late’. Parent company L Brand has stated that it wants to rebrand and rebuild the Victoria’s Secret company, keeping in mind recent criticism over lack of diversity and inclusivity.
Reactions to the cancellation have ranged from “Oh, Thank God, It’s Over Now” courtesy of The Cut, to more optimistic takes on Twitter: “Hopefully rebranding means a wider range of sizes and a more diverse slew of models.”
Fendi's Exclusive New 'Karligraphy' Video Debuts on Savoir Flair
Twinfluencers Molly and Reese Blutstein might share identical genes, but they both possess a unique sense of style. Doing their own thing caught the attention of the right people, and their star rose in the fashion realm. Now, the Blutstein twins have been tapped to star in a cool campaign featuring the new Fendi ‘Karligraphy’ bag, which was inspired by the logo designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1981.
Its timeless nature comes from the clasp, which bears two identical upside-down graphic double Fs in italics. Not only does the bag have us seeing double, but so do the twins wearing it in the video below, which was shared by Fendi exclusively for Savoir Flair readers. The bag is available now at all regional Fendi boutiques and on fendi.com.
