Rihanna Vogue March 2014


• Is Rihanna Vogue‘s March cover girl? @RihannaDaily leaked some photos of a never-before-seen Vogue cover, and a few shots from what looks like the accompanying spread last not on Instagram. Both Rih and Vogue have yet to confirm her appearance in this upcoming issue, but these scans look pretty legit at first glance. Watch this space for updates! (@Rihannadaily Instagram)


LL Bean boots

• The weather in NYC right now is NOT conducive to traditional Fashion Week footwear. Unless you’re down to ruin your shoes, or perhaps fracture a couple bones tripping and slipping in the ice and slush, I wager most NYFW-goers will be clad in more sensible footwear than usual. Ain’t no shame–Manolo Blahnik, the king of high heels, is also a champion for dressing appropriately in this treacherous weather. Turns out the designer is all for snow shoes, suggesting L.L. Bean boots as your best bet for looking fashionable in the snow: ” This is chic,” he told Fashionista, at an event last night, pointing to a pair Simon Doonan (standing nearby) was wearing, “I need to buy them…Tell someone to go and get me one pair of L.L. Beans, because I cannot walk in the street!” Sadly, most Bean Boots are on backorder until April (which I found out yesterday afternoon when I was trying to buy a pair online), but now you know for next year!

Simone Rocha J.Brand

• London-based designer Simone Rocha and J.Brand are teaming up for two capsule collections to be released later this year. Rocha will design both spring and pre-spring collections, pairing her feminine-yet-edgy aesthetic with J.Brand’s cool Cali proclivities. The first range will be unveiled to buyers in July. Rocha’s been having quite a year, having won a BFA for Emerging Womenswear Designer, as well as a NEWGEN sponsorship. I can’t wait to see what she and J.Brand deliver this summer! (WWD)


Topshop X Adidas Originals

• Topshop‘s adding a stylish spin to activewear, partnering with Adidas on a 20-piece capsule collection. Topshop creative director Kate Phelan says the range is designed to bring a feminine touch to Adidas’s athletic design sensibilities, elevating them to more fashionable heights. Expect stylish track shorts and tank tops, jogging pants, and sweatshirts all re-imagined to be worn outside the gym. Topshop X Adidas will hit stores March 20th. (WWD)


Doutzen Kroes Pregnant Again

• Exciting news from Doutzen Kroes! The Victoria’s Secret angel announced via Instagram that she’s pregnant with her second child, posting a photo of her burgeoning baby bump as the big reveal. “This is not a #throwbackthursday this is now! So happy to share with you that we are expecting,” she captioned the shot. Congratulations to Doutzen and her family! (Doutzen Kroes Instagram)
