Charlize Theron‘s production company is challenging the way women view their wardrobes by tapping into the reality television market. Denver & Delilah will be producing a clothes-swapping show titled Whose Closet is it Anyway? Inspired by an Israeli program that went on air in 2011, the show will choose three women with three different styles who will crash each others closets in an attempt to “walk in another woman’s stilettos.” [Vogue UK]

Temperley London is tapping into fellow Brit Thandie Newton to spice up its website overhaul. The label’s new dotcom destination features content, Alice Temperley exclusives, behind-the-scenes moments, and profiles of celebrities in their best-dressed Temperley looks. First up is Newton who describes Temperley’s aesthetic as “always classy with a bit of rock and roll.” [ELLE]

Today Avicii will “Wake Me Up” with the release of his new video; but he brought some chic counsel along that’ll have us all skipping snooze. Ralph Lauren‘s Denim & Supply tapped models from its own campaign to star in the video, while also co-producing the clip and styling the cast; what’s even better is that all pieces featured in the visual will be on sale next month.

Victoria Beckham‘s new Victoria, Victoria Beckham girl is “subversively sexy without trying.” The posh pop alum launched the diffusion line’s Fall 2013 range (available online) with a more simplistic style approach than seasons past. “I feel like the Victoria, Victoria Beckham girl this season is an engaged intellectual with a sense of humor,” Beckham told Grazia Daily. “She can wear anything with aplomb yet she chooses the simplicity of a dress. She marches rather than walks, she drinks espresso, and she devours books and art and film.” [Grazia Daily]

Romanian wonder Andreea Diaconu is taking over Paris for Pierre Balmain Fall 2013. She’s joined in the city’s slick streets by male model Paolo Anchisi as the historic Bouffes Parisiens theater serves as a well-lit backdrop to the swanky ad campaign. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

G’day West 39th Street… hello TriBeCa! Calvin Klein is uprooting its regularly-scheduled fashion show from corporate headquarters, and for the first time in five years, staging a show offsite. “Sharing our brand’s modern and innovative approach, Spring Studios was a natural choice to hold this special event commemorating [CostaFrancisco’s decade as Calvin Klein Collection’s fearless women’s creative director,” said brand executive Malcolm Carfrae. Calvin Klein Spring 2014 will be the first event hosted at the soon-to-open studio space this September. [WWD]

Joanna Coles’ new Cosmopolitan has an extra player on its team. Former CR Fashion Book fashion, accessories, and beauty market exec Shiona Turini is joining the glossy’s fold on August 7. With posts at Teen Vogue and W under her belt, Turini will report to Coles and fashion director Aya Kanai as Cosmo‘s new fashion market director. [Fashionista]

Prabal Gurung and Casedei strike again. Stylist Tiina Laakkonen shared a picture on Instagram alluding to a new collection from the pair with the caption “Gold diggers by @prabalgurung. A taste of things to come,” under a photo of high heels sporting some serious hardware. [Instagram]

TopShop knows not to mess with Rihanna again. The “Diamonds” diva won her case against the retailer after it sold shirts with her face on it without her permission. While TopShop bought the rights to the image from the photographer who took the picture, the Honorable Justice Colin Ian Birss ruled “that Topshop’s sale of this Rihanna t-shirt without her approval was an act of passing off.” [Vogue UK]
