The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Solange Knowles is Madewell’s New Spokesmodel, Betsey Johnson to Release Dress Line, and A Look at Louise Gray’s Topshop Range

Madewell has tapped none other than Solange Knowles as the face of their Fall 2012 campaign.

It comes as little surprise she would be chosen to rep the brand, as Ms. Knowles is BFFs with J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons. Peep this video of the DJ posing, serving, smizing, etc.

• Just three months after filing for bankruptcy, Betsey Johnson is making her triumphant return to fashion, this time launching a dress line in collaboration with The Levy Group. The line will feature “solid and printed, sexy, flowing dresses,” with prices ranging from an affordable $99 to a more expensive $249– about the same price range as her namesake label. Glad to see Betsey soldiering on! (Vogue UK)
