Here’s All the Fashion News You Missed This Week

Kendall Jenner Graces the Cover of Vogue

Anna Wintour held out on putting a Kardashian on the cover of Vogue for years, but the Kardashi-ban ended in 2014 when she put Kim and Kanye embracing on the cover of the April issue. Now, nabbing the cover of Vogue seems to be a family affair for the Kardashian clan, as Kendall Jenner now graces the cover of the April 2018 issue. In the feature story by Jonathan Van Meter, Kendall quashes rumours that she’s a lesbian (which I wasn’t aware was a rumour to begin with?), and reveals her she has strong maternal instincts, with friends having nicknamed her “Mama Ken.” (Vogue)

 

Versace is Officially Going Fur Free

Versace has announced they will phase out the use of fur in their products by the end of 2019. “Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion,” Donatella Versace said in an interview with The Economist’s style magazine, 1843. The decision comes shortly after Gucci announced their intention to go fur free last October, and Tom Ford shared his “conflicted feelings” about designing with fur earlier this year. It seems like fur is, definitively, out of fashion. (Press release)

 

Gal Gadot is the New Face of Reebok

The Wonder Woman actress has teamed up with Reebok to front their new “Be More Human” campaign. “Her relentless spirit and natural leadership have already captivated and inspired millions and we believe that this is just the starting point,” said Todd Krinsky, Reebok’s GM of Performance Business Unit in a statement. Earlier this year, Gadot became the face of Revlon’s “Live Boldly” campaign. She joins a long list of powerful women who are also faces of Reebok, including Gigi Hadid, Ariana Grande and Victoria Beckham. (Fashionista)

 

Iris Apfel Has Her Own Barbie Now

Barbara Millicent Roberts has been permanently frozen in her teen years since 1959, but now she’ll have an older friend to hang out with. Mattel announced that geriatric style star Iris Apfel, now 96, will be getting a doll made in her likeness. Apfel is best known for her humungous owl-like round glasses and exuberant approach to fashion. She was the subject of legendary filmmaker Albert Maysles’ final documentary, Iris. The Barbie version of Apfel stays true to the icon’s signature wacky style, clad in a metallic green brocade Gucci suit, oversized lacy collar and a chunky charm necklace. (Fashionista)
