This six-part series will feature Coddington in conversation with fashion industry elites.

“It’s nerve-racking because I’ve never been on TV in this capacity,” explains Coddington in article. “ I’ve been interviewed, but not the one who is in control. But I’ve chosen people who are easy to talk to on purpose.”

Couture-like Prabal

On the heels of the 2018 Met Gala, Prabal Gurung announced the launch of his eight-piece capsule collection, Atelier Prabal Gurung. Gurung describes this capsule collection as, “a made-to-measure collection with a couture approach.”

“This has been building for a while,” Gurung explained in a article. “We’ve always taken a couture approach to our [ready-to-wear] designs, and we make the majority of our collections in New York. I have a big private-client business, too, so we’ve been making custom, made-to-measure gowns for them.”

Each garment from the capsule collection made its debut at the 2018 Met Gala. Celebrities that donned Atelier Prabal Gurung gowns include Diane Kruger, Gabrielle Union, Eliza Gonzalez, Deepika Padukone, Ming Xi, Hailee Steinfeld, and top models Ashley Graham and Hikari Mori. “It’s no longer just about the designs, it’s about who’s wearing it, why, and what she’s representing, Gurung explained.

Atelier Prabal Gurung is now sold at Bergdorf Goodman and Moda Operandi from May 14 through May 29. Prices range from $11,995 to $37,995.

Amber keeps it moving

Amber Heard has let no grass grow under her feet since her divorce from Johnny Depp. Heard was recently named a brand ambassador for L’Oréal Paris. Her ambassadorship was revealed during the Cannes Film Festival.

“To become a spokesperson for this dynamic, world-loved beauty brand that’s been telling women we’re worth it since before I was born, and to join the L’Oréal Paris family of changemakers is such an honor,” said Heard in a statement. “I feel like these women—my fellow ambassadors—represent a voice, a power, a movement, an opinion,” said Heard in a recent article.

To promote her new job, Amber has already starred in two makeup tutorials published on L’Oréal Paris Instagram page, featuring 1940s–inspired Hollywood glam beauty and modern red-carpet looks. Other current L’Oréal Paris ambassadors include Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore, and Dame Helen Mirren.
