Oscar de la Renta has a new creative director; WWD reports that Peter Copping has been named the brand’s new director and will start at the house beginning November 3.

WWD has been speculating for weeks about Copping’s potential employment at the label and it appears that the rumors have been true. Copping recently left his post at Nina Ricci, with Guillaume Henry taking his place. Though Copping will obviously have a huge influence in his new post, de la Renta himself will remain very involved in his company. 

Copping’s first collection for the brand will be this February for Fall 2015. We will be very curious to see what he whips up!

InStyle’s Revamped Cover Design Causes Stir Amongst Forum Members (Forum Buzz)

InStyle is one of those magazines that often falls under our forum member’s radar. Although with a new direction evident on its latest cover, forum members are weighing in on the magazine’s revamped masthead (or nameplate in the U.S.). Taylor Swift graces the front cover of the November 2014 issue, shot by Greg Kadel, wearing a top, pants and earrings by Louis Vuitton styled by Melissa Rubini. Swift also poses for a series of images inside the issue where she wears dresses from Stella McCartney, Mary Katrantzou and Marco De Vincezo.

However, the Shake It Off singer could be wearing a potato sack and it wouldn’t stop us from taking notice of the overhauled masthead. “What did they do to the masthead?!?!” asks A.D.C.

Due to the design difference, [J.]Oliver wondered if the cover was for subscribers and wrote, “Is that the Sub cover?! It’s.. messy.”

“Total chaos,” disapproved jal718, suggesting the revamp hasn’t done the magazine any favors whatsoever.

MON shares everyone’s sentiments: “Firstly, I hate how they removed the box from the logo. This looks like a cheap version of Glamour.

“I hate the new masthead!! It looks very basic, and the text seems somewhat more than usual. I like the actual shot of Taylor, but I’ve seen this LV look quite enough. Besides, this is the second LV cover (first one was Sept.), same season, same collection?? Overkill.” rants an underwhelmed Benn98.

Srdjan questions, “I wonder about the masthead, will they completely remove the sash (which is sort of a trademark for InStyle) or is it like this only this month?”

The makeover certainly isn’t going down well and GlamorousBoy hopes the international editions don’t copy the design: “Oh no, I believe this is not their new masthead because it looks absolutely disgusting and cheap… hope this wont be redesigned worldwide.”

“Yikes! I didn’t even think about this, this change will probably take effect across the board,” replies Benn98.

Magazines should be keeping us on our toes, right? Do you like the change, or hope it goes back to normal next month? See inside the thread for Taylor’s cover story and join the discussion here.

The Frieze Art Fair is gearing up to kick off in London this week, set to be housed this year in a structure located in Regent’s Park, created by London’s Universal Design Studio. Inside, you’ll find work from established and emerging artists, all putting their wares on display to sell to wealthy collectors. The rest of us can look, enjoy and imagine what it would be like to have hundreds of thousands of dollars at our disposal to decorate our expensive penthouses.

This year’s exhibitors include the Gagosian Gallery, Laura Bartlett Gallery, Timothy Taylor Gallery, Vilma Gold and many more. Frieze has also added a “Live” category to the fair, in which viewers can experience performance art installations. Expect to see works from Martin Creed, Eric BainbridgeHaegue Yang and several others. 

It looks like the entire city is bracing itself for Frieze, including the fashion set. London’s Dover Street Market has taken past Frieze events as an opportunity to woo the art world’s fashion-forward clientele. This year, it is showing installations from Ann Demeulemeester, Nicolas Buffe and plans to debut Louis Vuitton‘s much-anticipated “Icons and Iconoclasts” collection. 

Frieze Art Fair runs October 15 to October 18, so if you’re in London, check it out. Tickets are still available for purchase here.

Penélope Cruz Is Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive

What’s sexier than Penélope Cruz? Nothing — although bullfighting may be equally as sexy to the folks at Esquire. The lad mag has named the actress as this year’s Sexiest Woman Alive and while you would expect the accompanying article to tout her sexiness (it does), it also talks a lot about bullfighting — a lot.

Indeed, more than half of the piece, penned by Chris Jones, is about bullfighting. Yep, we get it: Penélope is Spanish and Spanish people like bullfighting. Throughout the interview, Penélope is eating what sounds like a delicious steak, so the connection is there, too. Plus it seems as if the actress wasn’t giving the writer much to work with. No wonder he had to focus on the death-for-sport of a large bovine in order to fill the word count quota. The sections actually profiling the actress just describe how pretty she is and that she wouldn’t elaborate on the details of her life. But we guess it’s Penélope’s mysterious nature that makes her so appealing.

Coach Teams with Peanuts for One Adorable Collaboration

Coach and Peanuts have joined forces for a very adorable capsule collection that’s available at Colette Paris today. Creative Director Stuart Vevers took Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz‘s iconic characters and superimposed them onto Coach’s buttery leather bags. The limited-edition range adds a whimsical take on the brand’s sturdy, classic pieces.

Duffel bags, totes and crossbodies are embossed with tiny renderings of the Peanuts gang, though Snoopy and his avian friend Woodstock are the true stars of this collaboration. Their likenesses cover most of the pieces, which are rendered in hues of ivory, black, brown and “Woodstock Yellow.” In addition to handbags, you’ll also find luggage tags, coin purses, bookmarks and wallets. The brand has also created T-shirts and a black leather stuffed Snoopy, coming in a range of sizes.

Colette is debuting the collection today, but the collab is expected in Coach stores by November 1. The range will be available at Coach.com on October 24, although the brand will be releasing its first app two days before, which will feature a program that allows you to get photobombed by the Peanuts gang.

Check out the range at Colette now.

Surprise, Surprise: Nadja Auermann Gets Vogue Germany’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

While Gemma Ward‘s comeback is all we can talk about right now,Vogue Germany has delivered us an unexpected yet welcome cover choice. Nadja Auermann makes a rare appearance on the magazine’s November issue, shot by Luigi & Iango. The 43-year-old beauty sports a coat from Prada as she sits perched on some backstage equipment with her platinum blond hair slicked back, while her high cheekbones are elevated by the intense makeup look.

Vogue Germany may have knocked it out of the park by enlisting Nadja, but it seems most of our forum members aren’t happy with a certain something. “Such a beautiful image and it is wonderful to see Nadja but I almost wish they removed the text to just let the image show. When you’ve got Nadja you don’t need any text!” noted Luxx.

“A striking shot ruined by the text. The text consumes her,” replied MON, in agreement over the unnecessary cover lines.

Also acknowledging the amount of text was Miss Dalloway, who commented, “Too much text, but such a strong image of Nadja, that you can’t help but look at her, past that sea of text!”

Discussion soon settled and a positive attitude continued to fill the thread. “Nadja in all her badass femme fatale glory. Fantastic cover,” raved Marc10.

“Absolutely striking cover! The color palette and the flawless image is to die for. Nadja is so powerful!” shared bridgettetson.

“Adore Nadja…she almost makes me forget the fact that that overrated Prada coat is on the cover!” approved a satisfied Fiercification.

TeeVanity said, “Incredible cover, I really like it.”

The rave reviews for the cover just kept flooding in with longliveamour proclaiming, “Absolutely a yes to this!!! Love seeing the re-emergence of Nadja! She looks so beautiful and fierce here with this lighting. Can’t wait to see what Luigi & Iango did for the editorial inside but if this is just the preview I’m sure it’s going to look amazing!”
