Gucci and will.i.am’s New Smartband Has a Personal Assistant

Wearable tech is all the rage and Gucci and will.i.am will not be left behind in the scramble to enter the emerging market. The pair has unveiled its project – the i.am+ and Gucci Smartband, which they debuted today at Basel World 2015. 

The device, which Mr. i.am calls a work of “fashionology” (that’s fashion and technology) can send and receive phone calls, emails and text messages, has a personal assistant feature, a fitness component and can access maps, take pictures, hold video chats and even has space for music files. 

The i.am+ and Gucci is not dependent on other technology– it’s not connected to a particular smartphone and has a sleek, minimal look. Will.i.am and Gucci’s Smartband is being unveiled a week after Apple introduced its own wearable tech item, the Apple Watch, which will be available April 24 and can cost you anywhere between $349 and $17,000

We still don’t know when the i.am+ x Gucci device is going to launch, but it is definitely going to be one of the many wearable watch items competing for dominance in the face of Apple’s impending launch.

WATCH: Cara Delevingne’s ‘Paper Towns’ Trailer Is Finally Here

Since it was announced that Cara Delevingne would be starring in Paper Towns, we were curious to see the model-cum-actress in what could very well be her breakout role opposite Nat Wolff. Now, the trailer for the movie has hit the web and it’s gotten us more juiced than ever for the film. 

A brunette Delevingne stars in the film as Margo Roth Spiegelman, the neighbor of Quentin Jacobsen who is smitten with her. After years of pining after her, they become friends when Spiegelman recruits Jacobsen for a night of revenge on her ex-boyfriend. The next day, Spiegelman mysteriously disappears, leading Jacobsen on an adventure to find his lost love’s whereabouts.

Delevingne ditches her accent to play the role of an All-American girl, though quite frankly, we can totally hear evidence of her British lilt slipping through every once in a while. Peep Cara in the two and a half-minute trailer above.

Paper Towns is due to hit theaters July 24.

In a move almost everyone saw coming, Roberto Cavalli has announced Peter Dundas as its new creative director. Dundas previously worked at the Italian Fashion House as its chief designer from 2002 to 2005, before moving on to Emmanuel Ungaro, which he left in 2007.  Dundas has served at the helm of Emilio Pucci since 2008

The new appointment is effective immediately and we will once again be able to enjoy Dundas’ work at the house of Cavalli during Milan Fashion Week in September. Rumors have been swirling for a while now that Dundas would be taking over at Cavalli, and it looks like all the murmurs were true. 

Needless to say, Cavalli’s Spring 2016 runway show will definitely be one of the season’s hottest tickets.

Petra Flannery Tops the Hollywood Reporter’s List of Most Powerful Stylists

Emma Stone Oscars Red Carpet

Celebrities are always praised for their red carpet style, but most best dressed list regulars can credit their stylists for putting together looks that capture our imagination and lay etched in our memories. The Hollywood Reporter has released its list of the 25 most influential Hollywood stylists, and Petra Flannery, the woman behind Emma Stone and Amy Adams‘ flawless red carpet looks tops the list. 

You’ll find plenty of familiar names amongst this year’s most powerful. Of course Rachel Zoe and her studio of stylists made the list for dressing stylish clients like Gabrielle Union, Kiernan Shipka and Jennifer Lawrence. Lupita Nyong’o’s stylist, Micaela Erlanger is also mentioned in the list of her influential peers for keeping up the 12 Years A Slave actress’ red carpet reign into 2015 – and for engineering Jared Leto‘s lavender Oscars look. 

Also listed is Jason Rembert, the man who helped turn Rita Ora from a “Who’s she?” to a bonafide style maven whose red carpet looks rarely fail to impress. Her Marchesa gown at this year’s Oscars was one of our favorites and a testament to Rembert’s eye for putting together youthful outfits that make an impact.

You can check out the full list of stylists over at The Hollywood Reporter.

Is This the Best InStyle Could’ve Done with Kate Winslet? (Forum Buzz)

Fresh from controversy over its March cover featuring Kerry Washington, InStyle moves swiftly on to its next installment by unveiling the April 2015 cover. Kate Winslet graces the magazine’s latest cover, which unfortunately doesn’t sit well with our forum members. Now an InStyle regular, Giampaolo Sgura was the photographer of choice this month and captured the British actress for the cover image wearing a bright orange Ralph Lauren Collection top.

Our forum members certainly didn’t hold back once the cover surfaced. “What on earth…. that cover looks undone. Who decided to put ‘the color issue’ on a circular motion like that? That’s just so laughable,” discredited MON immediately.

“God, the layout looks so pedestrian. And I’m usually a fan of their color issues. Kate Winslet just cannot photograph badly, but she’s really overused,” added an underwhelmed Benn98.

A.D.C. certainly wasn’t impressed: “So when UK Bazaar had Winslet on I complained about how even their headline for her was basically always the same generic headline she always gets. Theirs was ‘Kate on Fashion, fame, and the balancing act’ and InStyle went with ‘fashion, fame, and men!’ Honestly, these magazines just need to start saying, ‘Same face and nothing new to talk about!'” Ouch.

Sharing the same sentiments was MsCoen22, who replied, “Agreed! Although it’s not that she has nothing new to talk about. The problem is she keeps getting asked the same kinds of questions (usually about family, body image, and fame), hence the redundant headlines. She’ll be in FIVE movies this year! She started a foundation to help children with Autism. She’s had such an interesting life and they can’t even come up with an interesting line.”

Fingers crossed Kate’s cover story holds more promise. Await the content and voice your opinion here.

The fashion set’s obsession with Pharrell Williams has come to a fever pitch. The CFDA is set to honor the producer, artist and fashion entrepreneur with the Fashion Icon Award at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony.

Pharrell, who has always been a stylish bloke, turned heads at last year’s Grammys in a tall, mountain man-style Vivienne Westwood hat that launched a thousand Internet memes and also had other people, like André Leon Talley, following suit. His collaborations with Comme des Garçons, Adidas, Moncler and Moynat have only further demonstrated his influence and keen eye for style. 

“If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell, not just for his looks and sense of style but for his kindness and openness. I cannot imagine anyone not seduced by him,” CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg said of the producer. Pharrell is set to collect his prize at the CFDA Fashion Awards on June 1 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.

We can’t wait to see what he wears for the occasion.
