Dua Lipa Makes Runway Debut With Versace During Milan Fashion Week

Make way for Dua Lipa.
The singer opened and closed the Versace show during Milan Fashion Week, strutting in two different outfits. The show also featured a number of Lipa’s hit songs, including “Physical,” which played both times she walked down the runway.
The first look was a black blazer dress with a cutout design, featuring safety pins in different colors along the right side of the skirt. The second was a hot pink glittering two-piece set with a cropped tank top and midi skirt with a high thigh slit. Her hair was styled straight with long extensions and her eye makeup was blue and green topped with a nude lip.

EXCLUSIVE: D.L. Eyewear, Launched by ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Dan Levy, Hires Co-creative Director and President

D.L. Eyewear — “Schitt’s Creek” actor and writer Dan Levy’s line of optical glasses and shades — has tapped Elena Doukas as co-creative director and president, WWD has learned exclusively.
“Elena has been a force in the eyewear space for over a decade,” Levy, the brand’s founder, told WWD in a statement. “I’ve long admired her eye, her instincts and her ability to pave a unique creative path through a highly competitive industry. D.L. Eyewear is lucky to have her and we look forward to the exciting new heights we’ll reach with her by our side.”
Doukas was formerly the design director at Garrett Leight California Optical for 11 years (which recently sold a majority stake, with a $20 million investment, as reported by WWD).
For her part, Doukas said: “It goes without saying that Dan is an amazing storyteller, and he has such a unique vision for D.L. Eyewear. I’ve been so impressed with the fact that he’s maintained that, along with the brand’s ethos, ever since he started the company almost 10 years ago.

Netflix Reveals First Look at Britney Spears Documentary

Netflix’s “Britney vs Spears” is almost here.
On Wednesday, the streaming service revealed the poster and first official trailer of its highly anticipated documentary detailing Britney Spears’ life and her very publicized conservatorship, a legal arrangement in which she has no control over her own estate or other aspects of her life, in which she has been involuntary placed since 2008. A court grants a conservatorship for individuals who are unable to make a decision for themselves due to physical or mental limitations. The documentary will debut on the streaming service on Sept. 28.
The poster shows a detailed painting of the pop star as she holds her neck, as if it seems like she’s strangling herself. “No more secrets. No more silence,” the caption on Twitter read.

The trailer has snippets of Spears’ testimony from June, when she spoke in a Los Angeles courtroom fighting to end her conservatorship. “I just want my life back,” she said as the clip started.
Then as the video continued, the voices of different people chimed in on their thoughts and findings regarding the conservatorship and the singer’s life.
“Britney had a fear that her family would

After a fashion internship where Manning gleaned insight into how the industry works, he felt ready to move forward with his own brand. Amidst the pandemic, Manning felt inspired to create something new and sketched out his first bag.
