#extraextraReadallAboutIt: FLOTUS in Monique Lhullier, Ralph Lauren Steps Down as CEO of Fashion Empire & Balmain for H&M is so HERE

Hello mega peeps, 

Fall has officially made it's entrance and that means more than an excuse to layer. Fashion Month has come to a close, luxury brands are giving us plenty to talk about and fashion players of every tier are making statements, so let's get right to it. 

First Lady Wears Monique Lhullier for Pope Francis Welcome Ceremony

Our Lady Grace sported a navy Monique Lhuillier lace heavy frock to the welcoming ceremony of Pope Francis at the White House on Sept. 23rd. True to her signature swag, the dress was classic, elegant and playful. A similar version was sent down the runway this past #NYFW, but this one, was obviously of a special make. 


BALMAIN x H&M Debuts on Nov. 5th

" I wanted the collaboration to stay true to my vision" says designer, Oliver Rousteing in promo vid for H&M. An avid spokesperson for the brands interpersonal connection to it's muses, bringing on mega models Kendal Jenner, Gigi Hadid & Jourdan Dunn for the ride was a no brainer. Items are said to be the perfect mix of H&M's trendy culture and Balmain's bold spirit, including heavy hardware and classic showstoppers. Camping gear ready?

Ralph Lauren Steps Down as Brand's CEO

This past Monday it was announced across the radar, that founder of powerhouse Ralph Lauren will be hanging his his jacket as CEO of the company. Ralph Lauren single handedly created an empire that painted the American Dream to a T. Not only has he been able to build branches of the brand from home to suiting successfully but the brand has always managed to stay true to it's signature. Former global director of Old Navy, Steffan Larson, will take his place as Lauren kicks it as the brand's creative director. Thank for such a fabulous history Mr. Lauren!

Enjoy some snaps of his last show.
