Style Scoop: Zoolander and Hansel Take Valentino, Chanel Ladies Lunch at Brasserie Gabrielle, Apple Watch’s Fashion Focus


Zoolander broke the Internet with a not-so-casual strut down the Valentino runway on Tuesday morning. At approximately 10:30am (EST), Instagram and Twitter abounded with photos and reports of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s cameos as Derek Zoolander and Hansel at the Valentino runway show in Paris. This surprise comes amidst rumors that Zoolander 2 is in the works, and that news is pretty much confirmed. You can bet that nothing much has changed with these two, and they’re still really, really, ridiculously good-looking. Oh, and their runway walk-off didn’t suck, either. [Vogue]

But before that happened, Karl Lagerfeld staged his Paris Fashion Week Chanel extravaganza. Attendees were invited into Brasserie Gabrielle, where models basically acted like Manhattan’s fanciest ladies who lunch. You can bet that Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, Kendall Jenner, Lindsey Wixson and Soo Joo Park walked this runway—and took brief breaks at the bar for juice, small talk and snacks. The collection, expectedly, was gorgeous and full of rich tweeds, feminine dresses and ladylike coats. [Women’s Wear Daily]

The fashion retail world is positioning itself firmly behind the Apple Watch. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced Monday that the tech giant’s newest gadget will be available to preview at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Isetan in Tokyo and Selfridges in London on April 10. As Apple promotes the watch (which promises all-day battery life, tracks fitness metrics, works with Apple Pay and can even unlock a hotel room) as a “necessary” $350+ accessory, the hope seems to be that the fashion set will really take notice.

After the passing of designer and entrepreneur Vince Camuto, it remained to be seen who would take over his role as CEO and chief creative officer of Camuto Group. The roles have been split between two existing executives, one of which happens to be his widow, Louise. Alex DelCielo, formerly the president and COO of Camuto Group, was named CEO while Louise Camuto has been promoted from creative director and president of marketing to chief creative officer.
