These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Monday.

Jim Carrey sounds off during NYFW
Jim Carrey made a rare New York Fashion Week appearance at Thursday night's Harper's Bazaar Icons party, where he stopped to talk to E! news about some existential issues. The comic actor took the interview to a strange place when he expressed his disbelief in the very subject that the event was celebrating: "I don't believe in icons. I don't believe in personalities," Carrey said. "I believe we're a field of energy dancing for itself, and I don't care." You can view the full interview below. {Dazed}

Teyana Taylor slayed at Philipp Plein
Leave it to Teyana Taylor to close a runway — the "Fade" video star closed Philipp Plein's show in a lace, thong bodysuit and a slay-worthy dance number. She popped, dropped, vogued, crawled and strutted, proving she's extra and in the best way possible. For your viewing pleasure, please see the clip below. {@teyanataylor/Instagram}

Dapper Dan and Gucci join forces
After years of mimicking one another's tastes and styles, Gucci and the Harlem couturier, Dapper Dan, are collaborating on a capsule collection that will drop next spring. And to further solidify the partnership between the two sartorial icons, Dapper Dan stars in Gucci's latest menswear campaign and will re-open his Harlem boutique as a by-appointment studio for custom creations. Gucci will sponsor his second-generation studio by supplying the raw materials. Both parties have come a long way from Alessandro Michele's appropriation snafu in May. (The New York Times}

Luxury brands are taking footwear cues from your dad
Remember when your dad wore those chunky white New Balance shoes with a fanny pack and some rendering of a cargo pant? You probably don't even have to think back that far, because he most likely wore that to the Labor Day BBQ, but at least now he's earned the Balenciaga seal of approval. This ugly "dad" shoe has popped up in luxury collections for the past few seasons as brands like Gucci, Lanvin, Prada and Dior Homme have embraced urban undertones to appeal to consumers who increasingly favor streetwear. {Business of Fashion}
