Happy Easter from Lily Aldridge
The folks at Love really know a thing or two about putting together a good model video, and this time around, they tapped Lily Aldridge to hop around and have a little bit of fun with the Easter Bunny... in lingerie (of course). {Love}

Inside Balmain Hair Couture
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner made headlines for their hair switch-a-roo at Balmain's fall 2016 show — bringing new attention to the company's under-the-radar wig line. A quick history: Back in the day, founder Pierre Balmain sought out Dick Gulicker (a wigmaker) to start the line. Currently, Balmain Hair Couture is available in 300 salons in the U.S., but is seeking to increase its presence in the American market by targeting high-end hairstylists. {Business of Fashion}

Revlon names new CEO
Fabian Garcia, 56, will take over Revlon as CEO starting April 15, replacing Lorenzo Delpani, who stepped down March 1 due to "personal reasons." The Colgate Palmolive Co. veteran will be tasked with revamping the cosmetics company, which saw a 19 percent stock decline last year. {Bloomberg}

Jessica Chastain poses in Gucci with a kangaroo
Gucci has scored quite a number of covers these past few months, and if the April issue of Porter is anything to go by, that trend won't be ending anytime soon. For the cover, Jessica Chastain rocks a nude spring 2016 dress by the Italian label with an embroidered peacock-like bird, recently worn by Cate Blanchett at the Independent Spirit Awards. {Twitter}

Alber Elbaz promoted to Officer of the Legion of Honor
If you really want to impress your fashion friends (or, you know, act like a know-it-all), here's a "fun" fact you can share: Alber Elbaz was promoted from Knight of the Legion of Honor to the Officer of the Legion of Honor this Easter. For those who don't know, it's the highest distinction a French civilian can get. {WWD}
