YouTuber Jake Paul denies sexual assault allegations 

TikTok Star Justine Paradise has gone public with her account that Jake Paul forced her into a sexual act, a claim that the controversial YouTuber has vehemently denied. In a 20-minute YouTube video uploaded last week, Paradise accused Paul of forcing her to perform oral sex on him in July 2019 at his California home.  The 24-year-old content creator’s attorney provided a statement to PEOPLE which reads, “Our client is aware of the recent allegation against him. While others have already begun to debunk the claim alleged against him, our client categorically denies the allegation and has every intention of aggressively disproving it and pursuing legal action against those responsible for the defamation of his character.”

A blessed union: Vera Wang and Pronovias!

Calling all brides! Vera Wang, arguably the world’s most sought-after purveyor of wedding dresses, and Pronovias are going into business. According to WWD, the designer and the Barcelona-based bridal brand have signed a 10-year licensing deal, meaning Pronovias Group will manufacture and distribute Vera Wang Bride—with prices at 60% less than what a couture gown would set you back. The dresses will be available in Pronovias stores and at its wholesale accounts beginning in October.

Kate Moss stars in Self Portrait’s new campaign 

Has La Moss ever been busier? The OG model is appearing in the imagery for Self Portrait’s FW ’21 Pre-Collection campaign, as revealed on their website and socials today. Moss, 47, was photographed by British photographer Nigel Shafran for the first time resulting in a series of candid portraits. Founder and creative director Han Chong says his love for the model runs deep: “If you ask me who optimises the Self-Portrait spirit and woman, it is, and always has been, Kate Moss. Her enormous appetite for life and her infectious sense of fun are what characterise the women I think about when I’m designing my collections – there is this sense of freedom, of effortlessness, of embracing life.” You can check out the campaign on the website now.
