MILAN — Giuseppe Zanotti wants his customers to shine bright this holiday season. On Dec. 1, the designer brand will launch its first pair of customizable women’s sneakers.Available exclusively at the brand’s boutiques and at giuseppezanotti.com, the Alena Star is a black slip-on, running style embellished with removable black stars encrusted with dark gray crystals.Customers will have the chance to buy sets of both multicolor and silver stars, which they can easily apply on the shoes to create their daily version of the Alena Star style.“Style, at its best, is individual and highly personal,” Zanotti said. “With this sneaker, a woman can express her creativity by making my design truly her own and have some fun doing so.”While the shoe style retails at 650 euros, the star sets are sold at 190 euros.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
