Over the past few days my Twitter feeds has been overrun with OMGs and “Can you believe it?” Every time I click the link attached to one of these alarming tweets there seems to be some new thing happening in the fashion world. But of course this is nothing new, we know that the name of the game in fashion is change. Here is your fashion news roundup in more than 140 characters.
It is no question that Mr. and Mrs. David Beckham make some exceptionally adorable kids. So are we really surprised that middle child Romeo landed his very first campaign? Romeo stars in major luxury brand Burberry’s Spring 2013 ads with the likes of Edie Campbell, Charlie France, and Cara Delevingne.
After ten seasons, Project Runway Judge, Michael Kors is leaving the show that started it all (okay, maybe more like all of the fashion inspired shows that followed). Confirming that he will be replacing the designer judge, Zac Posen sent out a tweet yesterday, “So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!! Joining @heidiklum @ninagarcia and @TimGunn.”
Having guest judged during season 3 and 4, Posen is ready for this new challenge and Kors fans will be excited to know that he will make appearances as a guest judge along with Christian Siriano, Bette Midler, Susuan Sarandon, Joan and Melissa Rivers, and the list goes on. Via fashionista.com
Prada reveals their cast of faces for their 2013 ads, and, well, I think they took a tip from the people at Chanel. These moody black and white pictures of famed faces Benicio Del Toro, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Harvey Keitel, and Dane Dehaan give off the same odd, but intriguing vibes as the Brad Pitt commercials.
Another shakeup in the fashion industry comes in the form of a new CEO at Lous Vuitton. Jordi Constans, who just took over as CEO of Louis Vuitton, is leaving the position after barely a month for medical reasons, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
“His condition does not allow him to fulfill his duties as ceo,” said Antoine Arnault, a member of the board of LVMH.
Starting immediately (tomorrow), Bulgari’s current CEO Michael Burke, will take over at Vuitton.
This is a coming home for LVMH veteran Burke who was President and CEO of Louis Vuitton North America from 1993 to 1997, and since worked at Christian DiorCouture and Fendi before his recent Bulgari stint. Via fashionetc.com
