This was a big week in the fashion world, from a fashion week and runway shows to new campaign launches. We'll highlight the top stories in this fashion-forward edition.
Atelier Jolie — that's the name of Angelina Jolie's sustainable, community-focused fashion project.
While information is scant, we do know that, similar to Jolie's other commitments, Atelier Jolie focuses on helping refugees and other underrepresented groups.
According to the website, only "leftover, quality vintage material and deadstock" will be used.
The project seems to encapsulate the idea that artwork can be, and is, created all over the world. It also seems to shine a light on the designers and craftspeople who are overshadowed by a world of consumerism and status.
"Everyone can create. Why then do we covet designer labels? Why simply buy the design of another person, when you can create yourself?"
Jolie was at the White House last month for a state dinner, and has campaigned for the Violence Against Women Act.
Chanel announced that Timothée Chalamet is the new face of Bleu de Chanel. Vogue sat down with the actor to discuss the new campaign — and his effortlessly tussled hair.
Plus, Bulgari held their high jewelry show in Venice last week to showcase their latest Mediterranea collection. The event brought in celebrities like Zendaya, Anne Hathaway, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Lisa (of Blackpink).
Go Down Under to see the looks from Australian Fashion Week. Designers like Michael Lo Sordo, Iordanes Spyridon Gogos and Erik Yvon showed collections.
The Sydney Morning Herald put together a list of what you can actually wear based on the runway trends. Here's what their style editor noticed:
- Denim on denim
- Retro florals
- Lace nightgowns (for going out!)
- Brown clothes
- Leather trench coats
And how can we not pay tribute to Cher. The legendary singer and fashion icon just turned 77 — watch her relive her life in looks with Vogue.
And we know you already saw this one, but Martha Stewart is on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. We wonder, did Snoop Dogg take the picture?
The other cover models are Kim Petras, Megan Fox and Brooks Nader.
Cannes may be a movie festival, but it's equally a fashion showcase as well. This story from Insider even says it's better than the Meta Gala. Do you agree?
Stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett rocked looks from fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and Dior.
Portman even wore a replica of a 1949 Dior gown. This makes it so older designs can be appreciated while the original creation is safely preserved.
