Fashion News Roundup: Crystal Renn is Still Being Asked About Her Weight, Luxury Brands Are Doing Really Well, and Jennifer Connelly Models for Shiseido Again--30 Years Later

Jennifer Connelly is a Shiseido Spokeswoman Again, 30 Years Later: The Labrynth co-star is reprising her role as the global face of the Japanese makeup and skincare line - she also appeared in their "Perky Jeans" ad campaign in the '80s. Jen's new campaign for Shiseido will be for its Future Solution LX premium skin care line - which sadly doesn't quite have the same awesome ring to it as "Perky Jeans." {Styleite} LVMH and Dior In Pretty Good Shape: As the global economy grows, so have people's spending habits: LVMH sales have gained 20.4% in the fourth quarter and Dior's revenues have advanced 22%. Luxury brands seem to be increasing in profit and revenue in pretty much every major market sector save for Japan, where last year's devastating natural disasters affected far more than the spending habits of the wealthy. {WWD subscription required} Lisa Perry's Spring Collection is 'Mad About Mod': The designer hosted an intimate luncheon yesterday to celebrate her new '60s-inspired collection, which features mod accents and groovy pop-art inspired prints. It's available at Barneys just in time for spring weather and, of course, the return of Mad Men. {Barneys}

Crystal Renn Still Being Questioned About Weight Loss: The naturally gorg model has been a pretty standard, healthy size for a while now, but ET still feels the need to pry into the "truth" behind her weight loss. The "revealing" scoop? She went hiking after a break up and realized she liked being active. In an industry obsessed with weight, dress sizes, and recently created regulations to promote healthier lifestyles, is this really the best way to approach someone like Renn who once suffered from crippling anorexia? I think not! {The Cut}

Would You Wear Weight-Loss Heels? Looks like this weight-loss-by-shoes thing still has legs (LOL) somehow... Makers of the Antelope Heel claim the bendy-looking pumps could help wearers drop a dress size from a month of consistent wearing. Does that include wearing them at my work desk? {Daily Mail}
