Michelle Obama hosted a luncheon for the winners of the Smithsonian's National Design Awards on Tuesday, speaking highly of the country's talent in every field from fashion to architecture and interiors. In her speech, the FLOTUS gave a particular shoutout to NDA winner Narciso Rodriguez, and she even wore a purple dress from his line to the event. Needless to say, Rodriguez said the recognition was one of his "career highlights." {WWD}

A new fashion film Julia Restoin-Roitfeld directed for Stuart Weitzman went up on YouTube, only to get promptly shut down for nudity. But come on, who isn't okay with a little skin from the video's stars, Poppy Delevingne and Dylan Penn? {The New York Post}

Stella McCartney designed a hot pink range of lingerie in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, with models like Kate Moss turning out for the campaign. A percentage of the profits will benefit the Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool, England, which was established in 2000 in honor of her mother's passing from breast cancer. {WWD}

Pharrell Williams — performer, music producer, prolific collaborator — is taking over Colette in Paris for a few days to showcase all of his (many) designs for brands like Adidas, Timberland and Comme des Garçons. The partnership coincides with Williams's four tour dates in the city, from October 13 to 16. And, yes, this makes us "happy." {WWD}
