LONDON — Trinny Woodall, whose posh, throaty voice and amusingly blunt style advice is still ringing in many a British TV viewer’s ear, is back with a new business. It’s color cosmetics, rather than clothing, and with the backing of Unilever Ventures and some smaller investors, the 54-year-old entrepreneur is creating a makeup and skin-care proposition for more than just Millennials.
After years spent criticizing herself — and others — most famously on the hit BBC TV show “What Not to Wear,” which she cohosted with friend Susannah Constantine, Woodall has since turned to Facebook Live and Instagram, where she films herself scrubbing, rubbing and exfoliating from her home bathroom, and doling out girlfriend-style advice about her favorite beauty products and clothing — all of which she pays for herself.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
