Donna Karan wants you to buy now her 40-piece capsule Hamptons collection, The Journey, and wear it now. “When a woman walks into a store, she wants to be inspired,” the designer said. “She shops for things she can wear here, today—yet also knows she can wear it into the next season. Especially in midsummer. She knows she can’t live at the beach. But she can take that spirit with her when she heads back to the city and into fall. Everything goes back to black, whatever the piece.” The Journey will be available in her Urban Zen stores in Sag Harbor, N.Y. and Manhattan. Prices range from $495 to $2, 695. [Women’s Wear Daily]

How’s that old saying go? Different strokes for, was it, Tom Ford’s folks? The designer is showing that it’s easier than ever to rock Tom Ford with his Fall 2014 ad campaign. “The concept is individual style, which was the idea behind my first women’s show in N.Y.,” Ford said. “The campaign is focused on personal, individual style of different types of women.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Woe is Anna Kendrick. “I mean, I’m hot. Like approachable hot, like the-hottest-girl-in-your-improv class hot. Like hot to the kind of guys who, like, feel bad calling a girl hot. But like beer-commercial hot? Am I beer-commercial hot? No, but I love a challenge. She is also, apparently, glad that she hasn’t made it to People’s Most Beautiful list. “The thing is, my appearance — that’s never been my moneymaker. I’m fine being small. I’m fine being all the things I am. And I’m happy I’m not supposed to be on the 50 Most Beautiful list all the time, because that would be super f—king stressful.” [The Cut]

Forever21 fired Chrissy Teigen once. “I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo,” Teigen told DuJour magazine. “And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken.’” Don’t worry, Teigen can hold her own. “I hate you, Forever 21,” the model said. “I hate you so much. Honestly, you’re the worst.” [Time]
