We’re joining the rest of the fashion world sending condolences to the family and fans of iconic designer, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau. The New York native—who gave fashion a new take on color and dressed icons like Jackie Kennedy— passed away in her Palm Springs at the age of 81. [ELLE]

While we’d expect to see Macklemore at the “Thrift Shop,” it seems like the Billboard chart-topper and his partner Ryan Lewis are going a bit more high brow with Nordstrom. The duo teamed up with the luxury retailer for the ultimate wedding party, and you’ve got an invite to the show! [Nordstrom]

Who would’ve thought that a virtual pop star would elicit closet envy from yours truly? Thanks to Marc Jacobs and his team at Louis Vuitton, it’s happening.

Carine Roitfeld and Kate Upton strike again! The pair followed their cover for Roitfeld’s premiere CR Fashion Book with her second editorial for Harper’s Bazaar as its global fashion director. And it seems like cute animals are a hit for the dynamic duo: from chicks to tiger cubs, we’re ready for a walk on the wild side. [The Cut]

Congrats are in order for the five women honored at Diane von Furstenberg‘s annual DVF Awards last night in New York City.
