PARIS — Lola Rykiel embodies the youthful joie de vivre the house of Sonia Rykiel wants to channel these days. The bubbly 22-year-old, who's studying at the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance, moved to Manhattan a year ago to pursue a career onstage. As the granddaughter of Sonia, her fashion genes are pretty good, too. (She started by modeling children's clothes at age three.)
"I love my grandma," trills Lola. "I'm on the phone with her and my mom [Nathalie Rykiel] 10 times a day." Now Lola — who has been named Rykiel's brand ambassador in New York — wants to lend a hand in energizing the iconic Left Bank house on that side of the pond. "I go out in Rykiel," she says. "I put on a fur with my jeans and go clubbing. I have an underground circle of friends. Rykiel has a following with young, hip girls."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
