Twitter pounces to Gabriella Karefa-Johnson’s defense

After his widely-condemned PFW show on Monday evening which promoted ‘White Lives Matter’ slogan sweatshirts, Ye has further found himself in the firing line of the fashion industry after he bullied stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson on his Instagram account, which is followed by over 17 million people. Post-show, the trailblazing stylist—who counts being the first Black woman to style a Vogue cover among her many resume high points—wrote on Instagram: “Indefensible behavior. There is no excuse, there is no art here.” (The quote was also used by the New York Times’ Vanessa Friedman in her review.) As a result, Ye posted a screenshot of the fashion editor’s account to his grid, followed by two subsequent pictures mocking her outfit and accompanied by captions such as “This is not a fashion person You speak on Ye Ima speak on you Ask Trevor Noah” [sic] and “I KNOOOOOOW ANNA HAAAATES THESE BOOTS.” In response, numerous fashion editors and industry figures slammed Ye in his comments. Gigi Hadid, who collaborates frequently with Karefa-Johnson, wrote: “You wish u [sic] had a percentage of her intellect. You have no idea haha…. If there’s actually a point to any of your shit she might be the only person that could save u. As if the “honor” of being invited to your show should keep someone from giving their opinion ..? Lol. You’re a bully and a joke.”

Vogue or Condé Nast has not made an official statement in support of Karefa-Johnson at the time of publishing.

Gabriella Karefa-Johnson is an incredibly talented and thoughtful person, and the fashion industry is lucky to have her.

Jonathan Simkhai & Alex Carl fête the Spring Summer ’23 collection during PFW 

Designer Jonathan Simkhai and stylist Alex Carl, who collaborated on his recent NYFW runway outing, were in town during Paris Fashion Week to toast to the latest collection. The duo took over a private apartment in the Marais, where guests enjoyed a bespoke menu by renowned French Chef Pierre Touitou. Among those in attendance included plenty of familiar faces, such as Christine Quinn, Aquaria, Law Roach, Ikram Abdi, Mia Regan, Paris Hilinski, Rachel Marx, Lulu Tenney, Declan Chan, Pernille Teisbaek, Tamu McPherson, Deborah Ababio, Vikram Kansara, and Thomas Delage. Peep inside the soirée, below:

Lil Nas X’s first campaign for Coach is here 

Pull up a chair—Lil Nas X is the newest name coming to you via Coach TV. Today, the house unveiled Courage to Be Real, a  short film starring the chart-topper and new global Coach ambassador. The clip, which features his latest single STAR WALKIN, is directed by Petra Collins and serves as a call to action to encourage self-expression, self-confidence, authenticity, and courage. Collins captures Lil Nas X throughout the film weaving through different rooms as he tells the story of how he got from his childhood years in Atlanta to the world famous star he is now. “My whole career has been about breaking down doors, and this campaign represents everything I’ve overcome so far,” the performer said in a release. “It’s about walking into new chapters of life, new experiences and new versions of myself, and it’s rooted in authenticity and self-expression—two things I really care about. It was really fun collaborating with Stuart [Vevers] and Petra to bring this to life.” Watch the film, below:

Rianne Van Rompaey is ELLE’s October 2022 digital cover star

She’s a mainstay on the runways in all fashion capitals, and this month she’s beaming back at you from the digital cover of ELLE’s October issue too. If you’ve ever been curious about the strawberry blonde beauty who seems to walk almost every show each season, wonder no more. The Dutch model, 26, revealed to writer Noëlle de Leeuw that she has her sights set on the big screen and hopes to begin an acting career where she can take on roles where she’s “falling apart, physically and emotionally.” After nine years in the spotlight on campaigns and on catwalks, she also says she’s relaxed into the industry more now. “I’ve realized that my body doesn’t have to look a certain way, and my face doesn’t have to look a certain way. I don’t have to be perfect. That made me enjoy it so much more.” For the full feature, lensed by Inez & Vinoodh and styled by Alex White, check it out here.
