Anyone who's ever wanted to play supermodel can now have the chance. Fashion shutterbugs Patrick Demarchelier, Michel Comte, Brigitte Lacombe, Arthur Elgort, Fabrizio Ferri, Jeane Moutoussamy-Ashe and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders are lending their skills to this year's Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "Kids for Kids" carnival. A special studio will be set up where guests can have portraits shot by the aforementioned talents. The event, scheduled for Sunday at Industria in Manhattan, will be chaired by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Donna Karan, Liz Tilberis and Chris and Pat Riley. With the social scene back in full swing in Rome, the paparazzi are back too, and one in particular--Rino Barillari--is having a bad time. First he was slapped by financier-politician Mario D'Urso, who was spotted at the Jackie O. nightclub with Princess Margaret, a former flame. Then it was Claudia Schiffer who caused Barillari problems. While in Rome for a shoot, she was descended upon by paparazzi outside a restaurant during a lunch break. Schiffer's four bodyguards weren't enough to protect her from the pack, so a hairstylist from the shoot helped out by drenching Barillari with an ice bucket full of water. Giorgio Armani will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for the Arts and Fashion at an awards gala in Washington on Oct. 29. Other honorees will include Grace Mirabella, New York University's L. Jay Oliva, AIDS researcher Anthony Fauci, McDonald's Edward Rensi and actor Nicolas Cage. The event is sponsored by the National Italian American Foundation. Since every president has made an appearance for the past 20 years, the Clintons are expected to attend. Past honorees include Joe DiMaggio, Matilda Cuomo, Lee Iacocca and Sophia Loren.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
