Victoria Beckham is no stranger to posing it up for magazine covers with credits at Harper’s Bazaar UKInterview Germany, and Marie Claire under her cinched belt. This summer, the former Spice Girl has added another conquest to her name: Vogue China. Shot by Josh Olins, Beckham bared her shoulders—and a bit more vulnerability than we’re used to seeing from the stoic style icon—in a white, lacy bustier and classic hoop earrings. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Chopard may have suffered a $1 million heist at Cannes, but the giant still has enough bling to deck out the royal set. The Swiss brand is the official jeweler for the Diana biopic starring Naomi Watts, where they outfitted the star in a replica of Princess Diana’s sapphire earrings and triple-strand necklace comprising 92 diamonds. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Dinner with DSqaured2 for two, please! Adorable twin designers Dean and Dan Caten are opening a Milanese restaurant at their corporate headquarters in Italy. Bulgari Hotel alum Elio Sironi will head the new kitchen once it opens this September. [Vogue UK]

Rooney Mara and David Fincher have made movie magic again, this time for Calvin Klein’s new Downtown fragrance. Fincher, who helmed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, directed Mara’s minute-long video for the campaign which emphasizes the scent’s chic, edgy, and urban appeal. [Grazia Daily]

Explosive kisses with Lulu Guinness? Don’t mind if we do. The collaboration-crazed accessory designer (with capsules at Disney, Uniqlo, and Sainsbury’s), teamed up with British artist Joseph Steele to create 180 unique, paint-splattered clutches. Each bag bears Guinness’ signature lips and distinct Steele personalizations marked by his use of explosives to create art. The Lulu Guinness Paint Project will be available for purchase this Friday. [Telegraph]

London’s Victoria and Albert Museum is giving its patrons a free dose of Jenny Packham. The cultural center will be hosting four free fashion shows on July 19 to celebrate the brand’s 25th anniversary with gowns worn by Taylor SwiftSandra Bullock, and Kate Middleton. [Grazia Daily]

John Varvatos made its latest campaign a (country) family affair. The menswear brand tapped Danny Clinch to shoot Willie Nelson with his sons Lukas and Micah Nelson in a black-and-white portrait for Fall 2013. [L.A. Times]
