Boohoo has teamed up with the charity Style for Stroke to create a limited collection of slogan tees for both men and women. Perfect staples for this summer’s festival season, they retail at £12 each, with around 25% of overall profits going directly to support the charity. So while you’re looking stylish, you can also rest assured that you’re doing your part in supporting a great cause too.
With slogans like "I am who I am," where did the inspiration for these words come from? Boohoo teamed up with a selection of celebrities, from Kelly Osbourne to members of the hit reality TV show Made in Chelsea, who were asked to divulge which words they’d most like to be remembered for — hence the name of the range was born: Famous Last Words.
The collaboration combines a great mixture of influential celebrities and inspiri ng words that can hopefully help to raise awareness about strokes amongst young people. Be inspired by the celebrities’ famous last words yourself, and peruse the limited-edition collection over at Boohoo.com.
Released only a few hours ago, Porter's latest issue with Lara Stone on the cover is already showing signs of promise. The blonde bombshell is photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for Issue #3, entitled "Summer Escape." Lara is seen gazing down the lens wearing a cowboy hat and seems to be channeling Brigitte Bardot with effortless ease (or doesn't she always?).
This is very refreshing compared to what other publications are producing for their summer editions. No beach or vast sweeping ocean behind a bikini-clad model — this is a different take on the summer season and I'm loving it!

"I'm really impressed by Porter's consistent A-list cover stars and great content. Lara looks sensational!" comments Nepenthes, who is yet another satisfied admirer of the cover.
Miss Dalloway shared the exact same sentiments: "Me too, gorgeous cover!"
As did fashionlover2001: "Me three! Lara can do no wrong!" and then even went on to show interest in Porter's next issue and wrote, "I wonder who they're going to feature next?"
Porter's "Summer Escape" issue will be available worldwide June 6. Make sure you get your copy and report back to us within the thread here.

This year marks Louis Vuitton's 160th anniversary, and it's celebrating by letting a couple other well-known designers do a little work for them. The French Fashion house has tapped Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, Frank Ghery, Cindy Sherman and Marc Newsom to design bags for Louis Vuitton, emblazoned, of course, with the brand's signature "LV" logo.
The collection, called "The Icon and the Iconoclasts," is a limited-edition range available this October, priced between $2,725 and $5,450. While we won't have a full look at the collection until closer to its release, Louis Vuitton executive vice president Delphine Arnault says that Lagerfeld designed a punching bag (complete with a secret compartment at the bottom), while Newson created a men's carryall. Ghery's design is said to be extremely embellished with "a small mirror, hand-drawn LV initials and angular hardware."
Mid-October can't come soon enough. The bags are admittedly pricey, but it will certainly be fascinating to see other designers' take on the iconic Vuitton logo.
For far too long, the phrase "you can't have-a the Mango" has rung true, as it's been at least 8 years since Chris Kattan left SNL, making his famous character but a fond memory of 90s kids whose parents let them stay up past midnight on the weekends. But thanks to Alexander Wang, who also brought back Mad TV staple Bon Qui Qui last year, Mango's back, starring in the designer's latest short film for T by Alexander Wang.
Promotion for the film started last week and continued at last night's CFDA awards, which Kattan attended as Mango, clad in all black, alongside Wang and model Anna Ewers.
The 8-minute flick follows the fascinator-clad star as he emerges back on the scene from his hideout in the Arctic to appear in Wang's video, which he finds out he's not actually the star of. But in true Mango fashion, the pint-sized divo steals the show with his hilarious quips and ultra-cool dance moves. Derek Blasberg, Behati Prinsloo, Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan and artist Sharaya J. join Kattan in the very funny film, which is certain to go down as one of Wang's best to date.
Watch the entire thing above.

Jeremy Scott's debut collection for the Italian brand, Moschino, took on the fast fashion phenomenon. For Fall 2014, the American designer created a range of clothing and accessories that spoofed the McDonald's brand iconography: red-and-yellow items were emblazoned with warped golden arches, like an iPhone case modeled after a small order of fries in bright red packaging. As befits a fast fashion-inspired collection, items went on sale almost immediately.
Although the Moschino Fall 2014 runway show was pure camp, the corresponding ad campaign is anything but. The Italian label tapped supermodel Linda Evangelista and top photographer Steven Meisel, a dream team. The resulting shot, which was posted to Vogue Spain's website earlier today, is sleek and luxurious, the garish McDonald's palette muted with a black-and-white color scheme.

Members of theFashionSpot forums have fallen in love with Vogue Turkey's latest installment. The magazine released its June 2014 cover last week and it features Madgalena Frackowaik wearing matching Dolce & Gabbana top and bottoms. Photographed by David Bellemere (his first Vogue cover!) and styled by Konca Aykan, Frackowaik is seen posing in front of a blossom tree whilst posing with her arms slung behind her head, striking a sultry silhouette for this gorgeous cover.

"This is so stunning. Really glad to see Magdalena get a major cover. It's fresh, ethereal and just plain gorgeous!" commented Nepenthes.
"It's a beautiful image, and I'm not even a fan of Magdalena but I have to admit it's a lovely fresh Spring cover," wrote Bertrando3, clearly surprised at how much he admired the cover.
MyNameIs shared the same sentiments: "Very pretty. Somehow even with all those patterns going on, it doesn't look too busy."
"This is perfect to me: Love the styling, which is very simple. The background and the colours fit together, Magda has this soft expression on her face. Everything falls into place," enthused KateTheGreatest.
Miss Dalloway was also in favor: "How beautiful, love the setting, she perfectly fits."
