OK, its Gay Pride Month and like other Gay Pride celebration around the world that means lots of chatter and adoration of gay pop icon Cher. But it doesn’t start and stop there.

This Gay Pride Month, Cher and Donatella Versace have come together to create a four-piece limited edition capsule collection. Appropriately called, CHERSACE, the capsule collection contains two tee shirts, socks, and a cap emblazoned with a rainbow-hued iteration on the house’s Medusa logo alongside the CHERSACE logo and a slogan that reads: “Celebrating love and unity xxx Donatella Versace, Cher.” 

Hmm, you may ponder if Cher and Donatella Versace are two star-crossed divas that work well together. Fashion Reverie agrees that with that thought, you are on the right track!!

Revlon’s troubles

When you think of iconic cosmetic brands, Revlon is one name that may come to mind. Though Revlon has not been in the news as of late, the cosmetic brand still carries much weigh in the beauty industry.

That said, the shares of the legendary beauty brand have declined by 46% as the brand prepares for Chapter 11 protection, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. As of mid-March, Revlon had long-term debt of 3.31 billion. This debt is due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. However, Revlon has seen some growth as consumers are venturing out more.

Still, the current small growth does not offset the brand’s supply chain challenges and deter competition from emerging digital cosmetic brands. Chapter 11 will protect Revlon from bankruptcy.

Naomi Campbell’s new campaign

No grass is growing under supermodel Naomi Campbell’s feet. At 52, Campbell fronts the campaign for Self-Portrait’s debut handbag collection.

This handbag collection pays tribute to the 1990s. The bags were “inspired by the ease and freedom associated with the Self-Portrait brand” and come in two styles—the Bow Mini and the Bow Micro.

“When thinking about how to launch the Bow Bag, I was feeling quite nostalgic and reflective of the past and kept being drawn to the 90’s, an era when fashion was sweet yet tough, and heavily influenced by music,” details Portrait creative director Han Chong, as reported in fashionnetwork.com.” The origins for this campaign came from such a simple idea born out of a play on words with the name of our new bag.” 

“There is only one person I knew would be able to fill the role of our lead for this video… Naomi defines not only the era we are paying tribute to through this project, but she represents everything the self-portrait woman stands for—she’s strong, independent, provocative, and always authentically herself.”

The campaign is directed by Renell Medrano and is shot in a private house in London with music from the original 90’s hit record “The Boy Is Mine” by Brandy & Monica. Campbell is styled by Haley Wollens with Campbell wearing garments from Self-Portrait’s fall 2022 collection.
