Fendi Taps Cara Delevingne, Adele and More for Charity Peekaboo Project

Fendi's celebrating the opening of its new London flagship by giving back to the kids…with the help of a few big names, and label-obsessed folks with deep pockets. The Italian brand's launched its Peekabo Project, a line of celebrity-designed bags to benefit the Kids Company, a charity to aid child abuse victims. Fendi's tapped 10 celebrities to design 10 limited-edition versions of its Peekabo bag, to be auctioned off from now to May's end.

The bags each represent its creator's personal taste, although some, like Cara Delevingne's, which has her initials emblazoned on it, are easier to spot. Jerry Hall created a bight red croco-embossed carryall inspired by Chinese culture, Naomie Harris' monochrome butterfly-spangled tote reads, "Truth, Love, Freedom" in it's "peekaboo" pocket, and Georgia May Jagger silkscreened a photo she took herself onto her version…before decorating it with a million sequins. The most fun option has to be Adele's, which is decorated with a set of flirty lashes and rainbow-colored resin studs down the sides.

It's a collection for charity, so the starting bids (most at £15,000) are predictably steep. But when you're a wealthy person who luh da kidz, we guess money is of little concern. So far, Gwyneth Paltrow's white reptile-embossed bag is currently in the lead with a £20,000-pound bid, while Naomie and Zaha Hadid's follow at £18,000 and £16,000, respectively.

If you've got the extra cash lying around, you can bid on the bags here.

Ellery Enlists Local Legends for Her Spring 2014 Campaign ‘Transcendenta’

ellery1You can take the girl out of Australia, but you can’t take Australia out of the girl. Or at least out of her Spring 2014 campaign, which comprises an all-star local lineup of O.G. supermodel Emma Balfour, photographer Holly Blake, and of course the Ellery brand itself. There’s also a bunny, which we’ll assume is also a homegrown.  

Since relocating to Paris two seasons ago, Kym Ellery has only strengthened her roots. Silhouettes are engulfing, metallics are shinier, textures are richer, and flares and bell sleeves have reached positively epic proportions. If you’re not here for the flare, look away now.

This collection added to that DNA an interesting mix of decadent eveningwear and punky edges – her kick-off point was looks the Ellery girl would wear on the red carpet — the combined effect of which was the exact opposite of last year’s Met Gala tragedy. (Reviews of Ellery’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia show last month were almost unanimously positive.) Contemporary Australian artist Ben Barretto also worked with the designer to refashion his woven tapestries into bustier tops made from bricklayers’ line and abseiling cords.  

Blake shot the campaign in Wahroonga’s iconic Rose Seidler house, home of famous architect Harry Seidler. So many local legends. You can watch a video of the campaign shoot here

Gwyneth Paltrow to Busy Herself at Goop Pop-Up During the Met Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow's really been going through it these days, dealing with two "conscious uncouplings;" one from her soon-to-be ex-husband Chris Martin, and the other, from Seb Bishop, Goop's former CEO. But that's not stopping her form going onward and upward. She's also in the process of moving the headquarters of her lifestyle site from London to Los Angeles, and it looks like things are moving fast out in Cali for the Goopster. She posted a photo to Instagram of what seems to be the L.A. storefront for a Goop pop-up shop, which will be open from May 5-11. So that's why she couldn't make it to the Met Gala…!

The location of the store appears to be in the Brentwood County Mart, which already houses stores like James Perse, Jenni Kayne and Intermix.

The question still remains: will Gwyn be actually working in the store? We know, anything is more exciting than the boring 'ol Met Gala, but we wonder if Paltrow's shaking off the airs of celebrity to go do regular folk things, like work in a store while the rich and famous twirl in couture gowns underneath some old statue of a naked dude?

Probably not. Anyone plan on stopping by the shop next week?

Jourdan Dunn is Not Happy with Lily Allen

Lily Allen has done a great job recently of offending a whole load of people since she came back to the world of pop with her new album Sheezus, from posting naked pictures of herself to making fun of Beyonce's "Drunk in Love' video, but now she has landed herself in hot water again with feisty British model Jourdan Dunn.

Dunn called Allen up on her lyrics of her song "Insincerely Yours" which is featured on Sheezus, where Lily pretty much takes on the mastercrew of British models and their "ugly children." Dunn, who is a mother, tweeted Allen asking, "Ermm @lilyallen who's 'ugly kids' was you talking about in this song??"

Allen was quick to respond saying, "It's a reference to something another artist said about my children on Twitter," which was probably in reference to the comments made by Azealia Banks last July, but Lily further tried to remedy the situation saying, "[I] only mentioned you cause your name rhymes with 'one'. Sorry."

Good old Dunn wasn’t really up for that, though, and hardly being the wallflower, retorted to the singer with a rather sarcastic response: "@lilyallen Ohhh because my name rhymes with 'One'!!!! Look at you, you lil lyrical genius!!" the 23-year-old replied.

Then of course, Allen responded with a friendly, “Get out more.”

It must be tiring for Allen, having to constantly validate her lyrics, although this may start to make her think twice about what and who she is singing about. As far as her Twiter rants go, she simply ended this battle with, "I'm sick of explaining my lyrics to people, they're pop songs, no more, no less. If you don't get it or like it, look the other way. Simples." There has been no response from model Dunn as yet so perhaps that has settled it.

"That's great she got that cover. I want to see the editorial now," enthused catherine88.

"Another beautiful cover for June! Amanda looks great here in the white jacket against the greenish background. Her hair and makeup are perfect, too," commented justaguy.

Naya was also delighted: "Wow, she really does photograph wonderfully!"

As was pixiedust1603: "She's really captivating on the cover. I have major hair envy."

I'm in the exact same boat. This is probably the best cover Elle has done since Candice Swanepoel's from last year. You can check out Amanda's cover story within the thread and feel free to join the discussion here.
