Jaden Smith nabs Nylon's first-ever solo male cover
Outside of the now-defunct Nylon Guys (2004-2015), Nylon had yet to publish a solo male cover until today. Jaden Smith appears on the magazine's August 2016 issue wearing an Isabel Marant top and Gucci denim jacket with aplomb. {Nylon}

Gigi Hadid stars in Tommy Hilfiger fragrance teaser clip
In a brand-new clip for Tommy Hilfiger's forthcoming "The Girl" fragrance, Gigi Hadid hangs out with a crew of male models clad in white caps and little else. Predictably adorable nautical antics ensue, including striking poses on a set made to look like a ship deck and plenty of hat-tossing. {Daily Mail}

Vanessa Redgrave is reaching peak Brit levels in her Gucci campaign
The award-winning 79-year old actress is currently shooting a campaign for Gucci's cruise 2017 collection with Alessandro Michele at Chatsworth House (the 16th century home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire) in Derbyshire. Michele staged the collection's runway show at Westminster Abbey, so it appears that the campaign will pick up on his recent Anglophilia.

So if you don't need to be a size 0 to wear eyeshadow, why are curvy models snubbed by major beauty brands? "Plus-size models are obviously needed in fashion because there are plus-size clothing lines," said model Jennie Runk, who starred in a 2013 H&M swimwear campaign. "But when you’re thinking about images where bodies aren’t involved, there’s not much discussion of size diversity yet." {The New York Times}

Vice Media buys a majority stake in Garage Magazine
The art and culture glossy founded by street style darling Dasha Zhukova has been acquired by Vice Media. Zhukova, who serves as Editor-in-Chief, will remain in her role and her editorial team is set to expand, potentially through international editions. In a similar move to the media company's acquisition of i-D in 2012, this recent purchase continues Vice's strategy to cater to a more indie, fashion-focused readership. {The Financial Times - sub req.}

48 hours in the life of Justin O'Shea
As the new creative director of Brioni, Justin O'Shea's fashion week plans now consist of a lot less running from show to show with girlfriend Veronika Heilbrunner and more model castings and last-minute fittings. "To create a movement, you need to do more than just the clothes," said O'Shea.
