Lindsay Lohan back into fashion?

Oh God, we hope not! Rumours this week, and a cryptic Instagram from the troubled star, seem to have Lindsay partnered with British brand Lavish Alice. Lindsay and the brand have remained mum on whether or not Lindsay will play designer but have confirmed Lindsay will star in the upcoming ad campaign. With failed collaborations in the past such as her collection with Ungaro, we hope Lindsay is taking acting lessons and not heading to design school. The actress should start on her court-ordered 140 hours of community service, of which she has only completed 20 hours so far!

Beyonce and Givenchy = Beyenchy? Maybe.

The 33-year-old superstar entertainer was spotted on a rooftop photoshoot in Brooklyn with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci himself. Could it be? Is Beyonce the new face of Givenchy?

No confirmation yet, but either way we can’t wait to see the photos!

Reese Witherspoon has launched her own online fashion retailer selling clothing, jewellery, handbags and homeware – with plans of opening a store in her hometown in autumn. Called Draper James, the brand is inspired by her grandparents’ names and the products are inspired by her Southern upbringing in Nashville, Tennessee. With totes selling for $150, dresses for $300, tank tops for $150, pencil boxes for $14 and sets of cocktail napkins for $85, the rather expensive price tags didn’t seem to deter shoppers from buying the collection – some of the pieces sold out within hours of going live.
