Kendall Jenner stars in Fergie's new music video
Fergie steps out of the spotlight in her newly released "Enchanté" music video to allow Kendall Jenner to give us a lesson in French lip-syncing and quick changing. And while Fergie's presence is heard and not shown, we do see up to six Jenners at a time — not Kylie, Caitlyn or Brody — but impeccably dressed clones of the model who pop in and out of the screen at irritatingly quick speeds. You can watch the full music video below. {Youtube}

Off-White Collaborates with Jimmy Choo for spring 
Luxury footwear brand Jimmy Choo is joining forces with luxury streetwear label Off-White on a spring capsule collection. Choo will create the shoes that will walk down Off-White's Spring 2018 runway on Sept. 28 in Paris. The collaboration is a harmonious fit for the footwear label, as Choo's creative director Sandra Choi has worked to infuse a streetwear feel into her designs – especially in menswear. And Off-White's Virgil Abloh is a perpetual collaborator who continually seeks to drive his brand forward with unique partnerships{WWD}

Aquazzura takes Ivanka Trump to court 
Edgardo Osorio, the creative director of Aquazzura, views his "Wild Thing" sandal as his most iconic creation. This prized sandal is easily recognizable because of its skinny heel, wraparound tassel ankle ties and frilly toe embellishment, so when a slew of other shoe brands starting coming up with similar versions, Osorio got his lawyers on the phone. Ivanka Trump's label was among the copycats, selling a similar style for $65. At first Aquazzura called Trump out on Instagram, and then the brand demanded Trump's company erase all images and traces of the shoe. When Trump did not comply, Aquazzura sued. The trial date is set for next March, and in the meantime, Trump is still selling the copycat sandals. {Business of Fashion}

Claudia Schiffer reflects on her 30 year modeling career
Claudia Schiffer's extremely successful modeling career was built out of a series of beautiful accidents. She was never one to flock to the spotlight – as a teen she was extremely shy. "Modeling was my therapy," she said in an interview with BoF. "I learned to communicate, how to be with people and of course, having success within something." Her path from young model to icon is documented in her new book out this month. In addition, Schiffer is coming out with a makeup palette with german beauty brand Art Deco and is collaborating with Aquazzura on a line of shoes. {Business of Fashion}

Street style photographers form "unofficial union" 
According to WWD, a group of anonymous photographers who capture fashion industry happenings came together in Milan to kick off the #NoFreePhotos initiative. A statement released to WWD on the matter, reads: "Brands, influencers and bloggers regularly make use of these photographers' copyright-protected photos to fulfill their responsibilities to the brands that pay them to wear and promote the garments and accessories which they wear to the fashion shows and events. The group will no longer tag or credit these influencers and instead, will replace their tag/credit with an agreed-on hashtag: #NoFreePhotos." The group warns that if the aforementioned photo stealers take the photos without compensation, they will be contacted for infringing on rights and if they do not respond, the group will use their own social media channels to shame them. {WWD}
