Sofia Coppola teamed up with Cartier on a new fashion film
As a longtime friend of the jewelry house, Coppola is an unsurprising choice to direct a film about Cartier's Panthère watch, which is being produced for the first time since 2004. Originally created in 1983, the watch is making a comeback due to fresh demand in stores and on social media. Both the watch and Coppola's film will debut in June. {Business of Fashion}

How Saint Laurent CEO Francesca Bellettini plans to grow the brand
Saint Laurent may be one-third the size of fellow Kering-owned brand Gucci, but Bellettini believes it could hit the three-billion-euro mark soon. How does she plan to get there? By growing the label's store network, re-vamping e-commerce, investing heavily in digital communications and pushing deeper into travel retail. "Everywhere I was looking at the brand, the potential was like an energy that was... ready to explode," she said. {WWD}

Gap will use augmented reality to help customers digitally "try on" clothing
The company is releasing a dressing room app that will make it easier for online shoppers to get a sense for how clothing will actually fit before they buy. "You can see how it hits your butt, how tight it is on the thighs, how long it is, whether it hits below the knee," said Gap exec Gil Krakowsky in an interview with WWD. Krakowsky sees this as innovation that has been a long time coming, claiming that "the fashion industry is ripe for disruption." {WWD}

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are reportedly too busy to attend the Met Gala
According to Page Six, the couple will not be attending the Met Gala this May for the first time in years because their White House duties are keeping them too busy. The same report also claims that the dress code for the event, which is timed to the opening of the Met's Rei Kawakubo exhibit, will be "avant-garde." {Page Six}

Michelle Phan talks ditching YouTube and re-launching her cosmetics line
The popular beauty vlogger was one of YouTube's biggest success stories. But shortly after landing covers at both Forbes and Nylon, she backed away from social media and started traveling. "I peaced out because I think I was going through depression," she said. Now, Phan's back in the game and ready to try again with her cosmetics line Em, which had a troubled run launching under L'Oréal before Phan bought it from the brand. "I'm going to learn from all of these mistakes," she said. {Racked}
