Gucci taps NewJeans star Hanni for new Horsebit accessories campaign

Gucci is going back to its equestrian roots with its latest global campaign, spotlighting its iconic metal Horsebit bar. In new imagery shot by Tyrell Hampton in Seoul, NewJeans star Hanni—a Gucci brand ambassador since 2022—poses with the Italian house’s Horsebit 1953 loafers and Horsebit 1955 bag. The bag’s new “Ancora” red, brown, black, and cream colorways, all exclusive to South Korea, can be seen as Hanni travels through the city from day to night. The campaign is Gucci’s latest to highlight the Horsebit, which was first introduced in the 1950’s and has been in collections ever since by numerous creative directors—including Sabato De Sarno.

Anne Hathaway’s viral Gap shirtdress is available for pre-orders

Anne Hathaway’s latest red carpet moment can now be in your closet! Following her attendance at the Cannes Film Festival, Hathaway’s custom white shirtdress styled by Erin Walsh went instantly viral—especially after its reveal as a Gap design. Now, a version of the design by creative director Zac Posen is finally available for pre-orders on Gap’s website for $158, with orders initially shipping in July. The limited-edition cotton poplin piece—available in sizes 00-16—pays homage to Gap’s famed white shirts, just in time for the Wednesday release of its “Summer Classics” collection of T-shirts, jeans, dresses, and more.

“Designing this custom white shirt dress was an exciting opportunity to reimagine Gap’s classic white shirt,” said Posen. “By incorporating elements like the shirt’s collar and placket, and adding feminine touches with darting at the waist, we created a modern look that pays homage to the elegance of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. It’s a connection of timeless style with contemporary fashion.”

Glen Powell goes retro for British GQ Hype

Leading man Glen Powell can now add British GQ Hype cover star to his resume! The Anyone But You star graces the cover of the UK title’s May issue to chat his two upcoming films, Hit Man and Twisters, as well as his rise to fame and breakthrough in the film industry. Powell’s cover interview by Ben Allen is also paired with imagery by photographer Chantal Anderson, where the star dons vintage-inspired outfits from DSquared2, Dior, Tom Ford, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Ami, Louis Vuitton, Rhude, Sandro, and Los Angeles Apparel.

“It’s haunting when you blow those moments,” said Powell. “But that’s one of the parts of [the Hollywood myth] that’s not true. That was always somebody else’s ride to go on. You know what I mean? It was never yours to go on. If you put your time in, you’ll get your ride.”
