Fashion News Roundup: Franca Sozzani is a UN Ambassador, Nicole Richie Launches a Perfume, and Models Dance for Givenchy

Vogue Italia EIC Franca Sozzani has snatched the title of UN Goodwill Ambassador. She'll be working with industry insiders to promote sustainable development and much more. {Telegraph} World-renowned milliner Stephen Jones will be fabricating fascinators for Raf Simons' Dior Haute Couture premiere. Jones called the collection "exciting, beautiful and new," but wouldn't say much more than that. {Vogue UK} At last year's Webby awards, Anna Wintour told us that "sometimes geeks can be chic," and the rise of fashion-forward online games only reinforces her statement. {WWD} Mary Katrantzou, reigning queen of jaw-droppingly beautiful digital prints, won't, or rather can't, show pre-fall or resort collections because her intricate patterns take too long to produce (hint: four days to make a single print). {Vogue UK}
