Lena Dunham‘s about to hit the road to promote her new book, Not That Kind of Girl. The actress has made quite an affair out of the whole thing, holding ticketed appearances alongside other comedians like Amy Schumer as well as performances from independent artists trying to make it big. Of course with so many appearances, the matter of what to wear is always an issue. Fortunately for Lena, it’s already been handled.

According to WWD, the Girls creator has tapped Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso to dress her for the tour. The pair got together to create 15 looks to keep Lena looking fly and fabulous as she chats with fans and signs books across the country. Nasty Gal set up a lookbook and shoppable category dedicated to Lena’s tour-drobe and we must say, Lena looks pretty great. Possibly the best we’ve seen her. The picks are very Nasty Gal; trendy, cheeky, youthful and edgy. There are lots of printed T-shirts with funny slogans, moto jackets and zippered everything. The actress seems perfectly comfortable in a cropped tee that reads “I like it in my ear” and a high-waisted full black skirt. 

Whether you plan on getting the book or not, the offering is pretty enticing. If you do plan on picking up a copy of Lena’s latest, the edit does include the book as well as a $15 tote bag to carry it in.

Shailene Woodley transformed her brunette pixie to a striking shade of blonde. The actress debuted her new lighter hair color front row at Paris Fashion Week yesterday. Shailene has been sporting lighter shades of brunette since the spring, so we have a feeling she’ll be going platinum in the near future. The stylish star paired her pompadour styled hair with a long-sleeve blush dress and rosy lips as she sat with the likes of Hailee Steinfeld and Liv Tyler at the Miu Miu Spring 2015 show

Retailers Considering Larger Pants Pockets for New iPhones

Get ready for deeper pockets, because they could be coming to a pair of pants near you. Now that Apple has launched the ginormous iPhone 6 Plus, brands are starting to reconsider their designs to accommodate the device’s 5.5″ size. Samsung Galaxy users might wonder, “Where was this when we bought our phones two years ago?” We guess you can chalk this revelation up to the Apple effect. 

Customers have been complaining they can’t fit their new fancy iPhones in their jean pockets, and when they do manage to stuff their devices in there, sometimes the phone itself bends. At this point, retailers are pretty much forced to explore ways to keep your precious mobile device in your pocket without any problems. Quite a few brands are starting to consider designing larger pockets on their pants, now that more people than ever will be toting around mega-large phones and phablets. 

Uniqlo told Quartz that it is actively meeting to discuss the issue and is thinking of tweaking the pockets on its jeans. Lee Jeans says it’s working on more tech portability options in its clothing: “It’s something that we always are considering, in terms of the functionality of our garments. Of course, we’re always going to make sure that we’re going for something that’s flattering for the consumer…but we’re always thinking about how she wears the garment, what occasion she’s wearing the jeans for and what she needs to just make them work for her everyday life.”

American Eagle says its men’s jeans are already pretty large, although it is evaluating women’s pockets, which tend to be smaller. Actually, it seems as if most men’s pants fit the phones quite nicely. Mashable found these Vines that showcase the extremely shallow pockets on women’s jeans, so there is lots of room for change in that area. Women tend to be smaller and carry their effects in handbags, so that could be a reason why women’s pants pockets are so small. 

At any rate, it’s clear that the future mobile phone will be a lot heftier than its predecessors if this trend continues, and it’s up to the rest of us to adapt.

Who Will Replace Peter Copping at Nina Ricci?

Nina Ricci Spring/Summer 2015

It’s officialPeter Copping is leaving Nina Ricci. Spring 2015 is his final collection for the French fashion house.

News of Copping’s imminent departure first surfaced in WWD on September 12, along with speculation that the designer was decamping to head up Oscar de la Renta. (ODLR’s PR denied the reports last month.) Either way, Ralph Toledano, president of Puig, the parent company of Nina Ricci, has some big shoes to fill. In the span of five years, Copping has managed to reinvigorate an 82-year-old brand with declining sales into an A-list sensation with stars like Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara championing his gowns on the red carpet.

Carven‘s Guillaume Henry is likely the front-runner in this race. Last week, the Frenchman stepped down from the creative director role he’s held since 2009. Known as a young Yves Saint Laurent, Henry is credited with relaunching the dormant couture house as a ready-to-wear label, producing wearable luxury collections that were both acclaimed by editors and a commercial success. Something Copping knows a thing or two about.

Simone Rocha is another name in the basket. The 28-year-old Irish designer, and daughter of designer John Rocha, is a rising star on the British fashion scene. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2010, Rocha has launched a successful brand, produced a capsule collection for Topshop and garnered a cult following with her smart perspex brogues. Her knack for crafting incredibly feminine designs that steer clear of anything too prim and proper would serve her well at a house like Nina Ricci. Only time will tell.

TOMS Supports World Sight Day on October 9

 

TOMS landscape

We love the TOMS for its cute and comfy slip-on shoes that have an altruistic slant. And with the launch of a sunglasses collection in 2011 and optical frames in 2014, founder Blake Mycoskie took his business model of one for one (one item purchased equals one item donated to someone in need) and applied it to eyewear. On World Sight Day this October 9, TOMS is encouraging Canadians to take to social media to raise awareness about visual impairment and blindness.

By taking pictures of the sights and views they’re grateful for every day and uploading them to social media with the hashtags #GiveSight and #TOMSCanada, Canadians can help shed light on visual impairment. It’s estimated that 80 percent of visual problems worldwide can be cured or prevented; to date, TOMS has provided eyewear to over 200,000 people in 13 countries around the world.

“I am so happy that we can help to cure and prevent visual impairment for so many people around the world thanks to our wonderful and supportive TOMS customers,” Mycoskie said in a statement.

The TOMS sunglasses and optical collections are available at select retailers across Canada and at TOMS.ca.

Dianna Agron Shares Topless Photo from Latest Photoshoot

It’s Dianna Agron like you’ve never seen her before. Yesterday, the actress tweeted an image from a photoshoot she recently did with LA-based photographer Brian Bowen Smith.

For the shot Agron is rocking a platinum slickback (courtesy of hairstylist Christian Wood) and little else. She’s topless in the image, to which she added a black bar to preserve her modesty. Her tattoo, which appears to be a man pointing a gun at a girl, is on full display in the arresting image.

While it’s unclear exactly what this shoot is for, one thing’s for sure: Agron looks fantastic. Hopefully there will be more shoots like this to come for the Glee actress!
