The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Bronx Street Fashion, Rent The Runway To Sell Makeup, and Naomi Campbell for Givenchy Fall 2011

• Here’s something you don’t see like, ever! The New York Daily News has a street style piece featuring fashionistas shopping on Fordham Road in (I can’t believe I’m saying this) The Bronx. This is a rarity, as most street style subjects are photographed in Manhattan or some woefully hipster-tastic part of Brooklyn. As a proud resident of The Bronx, it’s nice to see The X on the come-up! Just don’t tell the hipsters, else there will be mass gentrification faster than you can grow an ironic mustache. (NYDN)

Rent the Runway, a Fashion Bomb favorite, is partnering with Lancôme to sell select makeup products on their website. So after you rent that Stella McCartney gown, you can add a complimentary lipstick to your cart. And no, you will not be able to rent makeup… because that’s just gross! (Fashionista)

• Designer Hussein Chalayan, whose frocks have been worn by the likes of Rihanna and Michelle Obama, says one of his biggest regrets is not working with Tom Ford. “I was devastated. Tom doesn’t even know that. He told me I was too avant-garde. I thought ‘Tom you are so wrong.” Ford is an amazing designer, but after losing him, Chalayan worked with Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen instead. So really, I can’t understand what he’s so broken up about. (Stylelist)

•Want an ‘it’ bag but don’t have an older superstar sister to buy 25 of them for your birthday? Try copping a Thursday Friday tote bag with a very real-looking screen print of one of Miu Miu‘s popular leather shoulder bags. The best part? No one will steal it. (Refinery29)

Naomi Campbell will be featured in Givenchy‘s fall ad campaign sitting on a printed cushion, roaring for the camera. This should be interesting. (WWD)

Jeffrey Westbrook for Harper’s Bazaar.

• In anticipation for the movie The Smurfs (in theaters July 29th) Harper’s Bazaar outfitted film star Smurfette in Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, and Marc Jacobs. Hmm, can’t decide if this is super cute or oddly creepy. (Harper’s Bazaar)
