Gucci has finally come forward today to appoint Alessandro Michele as its new creative director. The announcement was expected and though the list of rumored heirs to Frida Giannini’s vacated seat included names like Riccardo Tisci and Peter Dundas, Gucci decided to hire from within and put its former accessories designer at the helm of the label.

Michele led the Gucci design team in making several last-minute changes to its men’s collection, which showed on Monday. The women’s Fall 2015 offering will be the designer’s first official collection as creative director.

Twiggy Named L’Oréal Professionnel UK Brand Ambassador

Famed 60s model Twiggy has been named brand ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel UK. Her signature look included a mod haircut and drawn-on lashes, so we’re not surprised to see her partnering with the haircare brand.

Twiggy recalled the time she had her hair chopped off at House of Leonard, telling Vogue UK, “Leonard saw me and he said: ‘I’d like to do a new haircut on you, would you be up for that?'” Daniel Galvin was responsible for her first set of highlights, making her iconic cut blond in 1966. “So in a way it was the hair that kicked the whole thing off, which is why this partnership with L’Oréal Professionnel is a nice one. Daniel Galvin was the one who did my colour back in 1966 for those famous shots, and he did my colour again for this shoot, so it’s come full circle.”

The 65 year old will serve as the face of L’Oréal Professionnel’s Majirel High Lift, Shimmering Blonde Service campaign, which is slated to go live in professional salons next month.

Did Allure Photoshop Fergie Into Oblivion on Its February Cover? (Forum Buzz)

We’re forever campaigning for magazines to stop giving us the same cover stars over and over, but Allure delivered someone unexpected for February. The magazine tapped Fergie to grace the newest issue, enlisting legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier to capture the cover shot and accompanying feature. The singer dons a black chiffon jersey dress by Michael Kors, her hair styled into soft waves, wearing a minimal amount of makeup…sounds like the perfect cover, right?

Our forum members aren’t so convinced. “I can not recognize her!” declared GlamorousBoy.

“It’s amazing what you can accomplish after 96 hours of Photoshop,” replied dfl-001.

Also mentioning the excessive airbrushing was justaguy: “Looks like they Photoshopped 20 years off her face. I like the simplicity of the cover, but not Fergie.”

Forum member tigerrouge agreed that the 39-year-old songstress didn’t resemble her usual self and ranted, “It doesn’t look like her, it looks like… she has a sister who used to be on a cheerleading team and now wants to present daytime TV shows.”

Although not everyone disapproved of the cover. “I think she looks beautiful. Her face usually looks quite harsh in print and what a lovely smile as well,” YourMonster complimented.

“I’m just glad they glammed it up this month and didn’t do another makeup free cover,” appreciated A.D.C.

Do you think Allure overdid the Photoshop? Take a peek inside the thread for Fergie’s cover story and see what else the issue has to offer here.

Anthony Vaccarello Is the New Creative Director for Versus

It looks like Anthony Vaccarello’s first turn designing for Versus’ Spring 2015 collection went over well as he’s just been appointed the new creative director for the label. In what seems like a perfect pairing – Vaccarello’s sultry aesthetic fits right in with the Versace/Versus canon – the designer says he will continue to create pieces true to the label, drawing inspiration from the 90s. Last season, Vaccarello showed a parade of saucy LBDs, so we’re expecting the sexpot factor to continue. 

Vaccarello is expected to show his first collection for Versus as creative director for Fall 2015, heading up both men’s and women’s offerings. But don’t mark your calendars yet; the designer says the show will not follow the fashion calendar and that the collection’s debut will come as a surprise. 

We can’t wait to see his next work for Versus – whenever it finally arrives.

Yes! Target Is Launching a Plus-Sized Line

Target has heard the cries of its plus-sized fans and is making a dedicated effort to provide more stylish clothing options to larger women with the launch of the Ava & Viv clothing line. In recent months, the retailer has been taken to task for its lack of plus-sized clothing. This is Target fixing that problem.

The line will be available for women sizes 14W to 26W and X to 4X. Target is hoping to make a firm grab in the lucrative plus market. Plus-sized women often complain about the lack of stylish choices and this line is catering to larger women who want something fashion-forward. Target tapped plus-sized bloggers GabiFresh, Chastity Garner and Nicolette Mason to pose for the line’s lookbook. The collection will include everything from basic tops to outerwear, denim, shorts, swimwear and more at prices ranging from $10 to $79.99. 

Back in August, Garner penned a scathing blog post about the retailer and the fact that its Altuzarra collection did not include larger sizes. She called for a boycott of Target, saying she wouldn’t shop there as long as it ignored the plus customer, though it appears she’s changed her mind with this new endeavor.

As of late, the retailer has been making a conscious effort to expand its plus offering — the forthcoming Lilly Pulitzer collaboration includes plus options, but those will only be available online. Blogger Sarah Conley took issue with the availability of the collection, saying, “Target hasn’t turned this great corner to be inclusive. No, they are doing just enough to pacify us.” She pleaded with the retailer, “We’re not asking for something different or special, we just want a seat at the table. Is including the majority of American consumers (60% in case you haven’t seen the recent retail market studies) too much to ask for?” It looks like that seat just opened up.

Ava & Viv is due to hit stores February 22.
