The arrival of Beyoncé‘s new Pepsi commercial last week left us longing for a few things: the full version of her “Grown Woman” song, a retrospective of her own iconic fashion moments, and her metallic mani. We were happy to discover that even without Mrs. Carter’s $50 million endorsement deal, we can still score her $16 nail wraps, courtesy of NCLA nail wraps from Melody Eshani. [InStyle]

Although Alexander Wang‘s first run at Balenciaga was a highly commendable one, we still couldn’t help but wonder what was next for the brand’s former creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. Until now. The discreet designer is reemerging on the cover of a new magazine, System, where he opens to friend and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé about going “Back to Work” after 15 years at the venerable house.

Kate Upton is going down in history. The buxom VOGUE covergirl will be joined by actresses Hannah Simone and Genesis Rodriguez as the first women tapped for the men’s Gillette’s Fusion ProGlide Styler campaign. [LA Times]

With the arrival of warmer weather comes the need to up your sunnies game. Elie Tahari’s foray into eyewear can help you do just that. The New York-based brand is launching a range of women’s and men’s frames, priced at $150-$250. [WWD]

Claudia Schiffer. Anna Nicole Smith. You. That’s right—you! Guess is teaming up with Ford Models and ELLE to find its next Guess Girl.

The winner will go on to star in a Guess ad, receive a $2,500 shopping spree, and get the chance to audition for a place at Ford Models. [WWD]

The annual Eurovision Song Contest is back, this time with a little help from Jean Paul Gaultier. The designer, who has dressed contestants for the show in past years, has signed on to dress host Petra Mede for the May 14-18th series. [WWD]

What’s $1 billion worth of art to Estée Lauder chairman Leonard Lauder? A generous donation to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lauder gave 78 works of Cubist art from Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris and Fernand Léger to the Met, a move he says will allow the form to be “studied within the collections of one of the greatest encyclopaedic museums in the world.” [VOGUE UK]
