In what seems to be his continued attempt to promote thin people, Karl Lagerfeld has designed a range of Coca-Cola Light bottles.
The Chanel designer has created a limited edition bottle for release in France, made in aluminium and featuring his own silhouette (would it really have been anything else?). As well as designing the bottles, he also shot the advertising campaign starring models Coco Rocha and Baptiste Giacobini.
Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez has become the latest celebrity to enter the “cheap clothes for juniors” world.
Beginning this July, fans of the 17-year-old’s style will be able to purchase items from the Dream Out Loud line at Kmart stores.

Footwear will become available come October.
“I am proud to be able to join forces with Kmart to release my own fashion collection!” Selena told People. “This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and I feel privileged to be able to give the consumer great product at a great value.”
You can see more pieces from the collection after the jump.

Fashionable pop singer Lady Gaga asked to look like a prisoner in her latest music video.
The eccentric singer teamed up with designers Viktor and Rolf for “Telephone” - her duet with Beyonce Knowles - as she wanted them to create her a bespoke costume, which was inspired by spending time behind bars. As a result, in some scenes in the video Gaga wears a dark grey leopard jersey jumpsuit with a studded bodice decorated with metal chains.
“Lady Gaga asked us to design a prisoner’s outfit. This is how we imagined Gaga if she was incarcerated. She inspired us and her bodysuit was included in our brand new ‘glamour factory’ collection. It is styled with a huge pile of exaggerated metal chain necklaces.”
As well as her Viktor and Rolf prison outfit, Gaga and Beyonce also wear designs by outlandish designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac - with Beyonce choosing a blue jacket from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection and Gaga sporting a bespoke dress.
“He [Bertelli] says that we are snobs and that we don’t understand pop culture… He and I have a little rule of three. If he says something more than three times, then I need to think about it. Sometimes I don’t want to listen, but I do… We work hard. It’s always an intense relationship, and it’s exhausting having to work with him. But I admire and respect him… It’s a war in here every minute, and to be part of this company, you have to be trained.”

After a successful collaboration with H&M, Madonna is ready to launch her own fashion line.
The 51-year-old singer is creating the range, named MG Icon, in joint venture with her manager Guy Oseary and Iconix - the company behind Badgley Mischka and Candie’s.
“Joining forces with Iconix to bring my fashion ideas to consumers is very exciting for me. I look forward to working closely with Neil Cole of Iconix and his team to create and translate my vision and ideas for MG Icon.”
Discussing the range, Neil Cole said, “Madonna is a legend in the world of music, fashion and entertainment and now with her deep involvement in MG Icon we will be able to leverage her vision into consumer products globally. Our strategy is to introduce brands formed through the joint venture in multiple countries and organically expand worldwide.”
The brand’s first project will be named after Madonna’s hit “Material Girl” and will be a junior range with items costing between $12 and $40. Clothes will be on sale at Macy’s department stores from August.
Stella McCartney thinks that the fashion world is finally embracing ethical practices.
The designer - who is a strict vegetarian and animal rights campaigner - has always used responsible production for her creations and now says everyone else is starting to follow suit.
“I hope everyone else is catching up, but I’m also learning all the time, so I think I’m constantly changing and the brand is constantly changing. I think that’s part of being a modern brand, you have to react to the environment you are living in, as much as the industry you are working in.”
Despite a financial cloud still hanging over the world, Stella is excited about her future:
“I think we’re definitely hitting a really nice pace and it’s really exciting. It feels like it’s just about to take off, there is a lot of energy and a lot of positivity. It’s like the timing is right for our brand. I’ve grown up, not only physically but also mentally. I think that there is a new woman that’s also there, and I think that she has held the original girl’s hand and walked her though life for a little bit.”
Sir Paul McCartney was in the front row as daughter Stella showcased her latest collection at Paris Fashion Week.
The Beatles legend and his girlfriend Nancy Shevell proudly looked on as the designer wowed the audience with her simple but elegant designs from her Fall/Winter 2010 range in the French capital. The show was dedicated to the late Alexander McQueen, and Stella worked all the season’s hottest trends - blacks, greys and block neon colors - into wearable designs.
Singer Pixie Lott has designed an exclusive fashion range which pays homage to her sense of style.
Lott has teamed up with British high street brand Lipsy to create a clothing collection, using her own unique look as the inspiration: “I have always been a big fan of Lipsy - I love what the brand stands for and I’m having great fun working with such a talented a creative team.”
The Pixie Collection has two distinct looks - Pixie Festival and Pixie Party - with both complimenting Lipsy’s sexy attitude. Vintage style cotton dresses, bleached denim, maxi dresses and fringed waistcoats make up Pixie Festival while Pixie Party consists of sexy chiffon layered dresses, oversized animal prints and studded vest dresses.
Jeremy Stakol, Lipsy’s CEO, said of the collaboration, “Pixie has string ideas about fashion, understands product and has her own unique style. She is exactly what Lipsy is all about in terms of fashion - we’re really pleased with the collection and confident it will be the top of every girl’s shopping list.”
The range will launch in the UK next month.
Henry Holland wants to dress Lady Gaga. The British designer is a huge fan of the eccentric “Bad Romance” singer’s sense of style and would love to work with her - but only if she agreed with his ideas.
“I’d love to dress Gaga but I’d be too terrified to tell her what to wear.It would have to be a collaborative process.”
The designer’s close friend, model Agyness Deyn, also confessed to being a big fan of Gaga and her quirky fashion ideas after seeing her promoting a new MAC lipstick. Agyness told Now, “I was inspired.”
Henry and Gaga should get along fine if the designer creates an outfit with lots of accessories - including high-heeled shoes. The singer said recently, “I would rather die than have my fans not see me in a pair of high heels. I’d never give up my wigs and hats for anything. You see legendary people taking out their trash, I think it’s destroying showbusiness.”
