The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Givenchy Will Not Show Couture Collection This Season, Current, Elliott Leave Current/Elliott, and Kim Kardashian Makes Acting Debut

• I guess once you get too hot, you’ve gotta leave the people wanting more! Givenchy announced yesterday that the label will not show a collection during couture fashion week next month. WWD says, “Givenchy and Tisci have been moving toward a more personalized approach to couture in recent years,” which would help explain this otherwise surprising (and disappointing) news! I suppose this means we’ll just have to wait for the next red carpet event to see the label’s couture offerings this season! (WWD)

Emily Current and Merritt Elliott founders of Current/Elliott the brand, have announced their resignation from the label. While the pair have yet to give a reason for their departure, they assure us that they will continue to bless the world with their design talent: “We are so proud of what we have accomplished with Current/Elliott,” they said. “Parting ways has been a difficult decision, but we are thrilled for our next chapter in design and to perpetuate our whimsical Americana aesthetic across multiple categories.” It might be safe to expect a slew of design collaborations from the duo. Who knows? Leaving their brand might prove to be quite lucrative and rewarding for them. Just check Carine Roitfeld‘s credentials! While we’re sad to see ’em go, we wish Emily and Merritt the best of luck! (WWD)

• Notice something weird about this WalMart Beauty Scoop catalogue? Like, how it actually looks like a real live magazine? Well, that’s because the retailer tapped Condé Nast to not only contribute editorial content (!)  to the shopper, but WWD reports that the publisher produced the whole thing. But you wouldn’t know it, since “Except for its brands, the words Condé Nast do not appear anywhere in BeautyScoop.” While some might count this all shade, WWD chalks it up to WalMart being “reluctant to discuss its marketing tactics.” Potato, potato.

Hollywood Reporter says Anna Wintour is indeed entertaining the possibility of becoming a US ambassador to France. According to The Reporter‘s sources, phantom “political insiders” say the editrix “might be open to becoming ambassador to France are accurate.” Hmm… I’d like to know who these “insiders” are! What do you think, Bombers? Is this real tea, or just some hot water with Tang crystals? (Hollywood Reporter)
