The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Nicole Richie for Macy’s, Rihanna’s Designing for Armani Jeans Again, and Grazia‘s Coming to South Africa

Nicole Richie will be the seventh designer to collaborate with Macy’s Impulse department on a capsule collection. The 24-30 piece range will boast several printed items in the tradition of Richie’s famed bohemian-chic personal style. The line, Richie says, “represents the many different layers of a modern woman. Women are wearing so many different hats these days. We are evolving. Not just working, but creating. This collection has a strong mix of masculine and feminine: printed chiffon mixed with faux leathers. I focused on the details, from the zipper pulls to the buttons.” Expect the line to drop this September. (WWD)

• Well, Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevigne seemed to have a great time at last night’s Met Ball. Dunn took to Twitter to gush about chatting with the Most High Priestess, Our Lady Yaki. “Wait did me and @Caradelevingne really just [talk] to Beyonce?!?!,” she managed to tweet after the no doubt life-altering experience.

• Rihanna has once again designed a range for Armani Jeans, and from the looks of it, this collection is as uninspired as the last. So you know it’s going to sell like hot cakes. Expect it in stores come mid-April. (Fashionista)

• Peep this sneak preview of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ exhibit. Anyone headed to the Met to check it out in person? It’s set to run from May 10th- August 19th. (The Cut)


• Africa might never get that Vogue iteration we’re all dreaming of, but they are getting their very own version of Grazia! The publication is launching May 18th, and in addition to fashion, will cover celebrity news, beauty, current events, lifestyle and entertainment. So who’s set to cover the glossy’s debut issue? No word yet. But I’m sure it’ll be a celebrity that sells copies. I’m banking on Rihanna or Beyoncé (in her flawless Met Gala frock, natch!). (WWD)
