Sheryl Crow is the cover girl for Bloomingdale’s sixth-annual Pink Book arriving in mailboxes starting Monday, which kicks off the store’s October campaign to fight breast cancer. Inside the 27-page catalogue, Crow discusses her bout with breast cancer, plus her upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of the movie “Diner,” her two adopted children and making music.
Photographed by Ben Watts, the 50-year-old Crow models three outfits with items from Joie, Bella Dahl, Equipment and Rag & Bone. “Someone like me shouldn’t be diagnosed with breast cancer, that’s what was going through my mind,” Crow says in the interview. “I wasn’t thinking about a diagnosis. I was just doing what I was supposed to do, which was staying on top of my mammograms. It was a shock.”
The Pink Book also has a tribute to the late Evelyn Lauder, founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, by author, cartoonist, philanthropist and cancer survivor Marisa Acocella Marchetto; a spread on doctors and researchers in cancer research, and an array of products to earn points and contribute dollars to the cause. Aside from the book, the Bloomingdale’s campaign covers store and online activities and partners with the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., the BCRF and grass-roots organizations such as Breast Oasis, The Cancer Vixen Fund and The Tutu Project. “Bloomingdale’s is proud to do our part in continuing Evelyn Lauder’s passionate quest to not only end breast cancer but prevent it,” said Michael Gould, chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s, which since 2005 has raised more than $4 million for BCRF.

It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said.
