Style Scoop: Balmain’s Models Eat Fast Food, Gucci Execs Step Down, Polyvore Reveals Top-Searched Brands


Balmain’s spring 2015 campaign features models—and an unexpected side of fries. Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Isabeli Fontana, and Crista Cober are pictured playing video games and downing burgers in the images, shot by Mario Sorrenti. We’d like to know how many (if any) burgers were actually consumed on the set, but we’re into the unapologetic realness of this campaign, regardless. [Women’s Wear Daily]

After 6 years at the helm of Gucci, Frida Giannini and Patrizio di Marco are stepping down from their roles as creative director and CEO (respectively) at the Italian fashion house. Giannini will exit following the showing of her fall-winter 2015 collection in Milan, while di Marco will depart on January 1. Rumor currently has it that Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci is in the running for Gucci’s next creative director, but nothing has been confirmed just yet. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Polyvore released top 10 lists that show which fashion and beauty brands are among the highest-searched on the site. Topshop, H&M, Forever 21, Wet Seal, River Island, ASOS, and Nars made the list in 2014, with Nars being the only beauty company represented. [Women’s Wear Daily]

It looks like Condé Nast’s rat problem is only getting worse. Apparently it’s gotten to the point where Anna Wintour won’t even enter the 1 World Trade Center (not that we really blame her). Rugs have been eaten through, ceilings have been penetrated and droppings have been dropped—and none of it seems to be stopping any time soon. Ew. [New York Daily News]
