Brad Pitt covers GQ Style with an epic shoot by Ryan McGinley
The latest cover story for GQ Style issue depicts Pitt through McGinley's uniquely artistic lens, wearing laid-back designer pieces from Junya Watanabe and Rick Owens in odd positions (think: lying fetal, doing some parkour-like shoulder-stands) in three national parks. Pitt uses the accompanying interview to talk about everything from divorce to giving up alcohol — and it's a doozy. {GQ}

Balmain and L'Oréal team up to create lipstick capsule
The collection features colors, packaging and an ad campaign overseen by Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing, marking his first foray into beauty. The capsule will introduce a range of new shades that will be carried in retailers that sell L'Oréal, as well as Balmain stores. "Accessible beauty and high fashion now have a symbolic meeting point," claimed L'Oréal brand president Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou of the collaboration. {WWD}

Kendall Jenner covers the Mario Testino-edited issue of Vogue India
In honor of the magazine's 10th anniversary, Testino acted as guest editor, creative director and photographer and tapped Kendall Jenner for the cover. The issue blends traditional Indian fashion with Western influences and is considered by Vogue India editor-in-chief Priya Tanna to be a collector's special. "I've always admired Mario's repertoire. So to work with him and share his creative vision was nothing short of spectacular," Tanna said in a statement. {WWD}

Nicki Minaj is working on a collaboration with H&M
While answering questions about the H&M gown she wore on the red carpet at the Met Gala this week, Minaj mentioned that she'll be collaborating with the brand on a collection due to come out this fall. No word on what it will look like yet, but if her Met Gala 'fit (and wardrobe history) are any indication, the pieces will bring plenty of drama and sex appeal. {Hypebeast}

Hugo Boss stabilized its sales and will focus on two brands only in coming weeks
The label first announced that it would be folding offshoot brands like Boss Orange into its two main brands, Hugo and Boss, in November, a strategy implemented in response to struggling sales. Now, in the first quarter of 2017, Hugo Boss is reporting stable sales and earnings growth due to "strict cost and rebate management." {WWD}

Estée Lauder sales boosted by acquisitions
The beauty and skin-care company saw half of its 8 percent growth in net sales driven by recent acquisitions Too Faced and Becca Cosmetics, resulting in $2.86 billion in net sales in the fiscal third quarter. Both brands performed "above expectations," according to Lauder CEO Fabrizio Freda. All Estée Lauder categories except hair care saw net sales gains for the quarter. {WWD}

Pharrell Williams just launched his first "signature" shoe with Adidas Originals
Though he's collaborated with Adidas before, the Tennis Hu Icons will be Pharrell's first signature style, meaning they are the first shoes he's been involved with for the brand that feature all-new designs rather than pulling physical elements from already-existing Adidas styles. In other words — watch out, Stan Smith, Pharrell may be coming for your throne. {WWD}

Yoox Net-a-Porter Group net revenue grew by 19.2 percent this quarter
Yoox Net-a-Porter Group saw significant growth in comparison to its net revenues from the same quarter last year, making 515 million euro (about $562 million) in the first quarter of 2017. The luxury retail conglomerate also boasted growth in the number of visits (200 million), orders (2.2 million) and active users (3 million) this season. {Fashionista inbox}

Kate Moss' daughter Lila Grace just landed her first ad campaign
In a development that can only be described as inevitable, Kate Moss' 14-year-old daughter Lila Grace Moss has scored her first-ever fashion campaign: for Selfridge's Braid Bar in London. The shot pictures Lila in the foreground (in braces!) alongside another celebrity spawn — Stella Jones, daughter of The Clash's Mick Jones — behind her, with both teens sporting cornrows which, c'mon. Do we really have to go into this again for you, Braid Bar? {@the_braid_bar/Instagram}
