Miley Cyrus is the newest addition to the Gucci fam

Following in the footsteps of Harry Styles, Lana Del Rey, and Jared Leto, Miley Cyrus is the latest famous face to front a campaign  campaign. The performer is the ambassador for Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum, which comes in celebration of the Italian fashion house’s 100th anniversary. Creative director Alessandro Michele said he enlisted Cyrus, of whom he’s a devoted fan, because of her “rock ‘n’ roll” spirit and eclecticism. The actress-singer-songwriter triple threat will appear in a series of campaign shots and a video, directed by Petra Collins. Images and videos, which are sure to sweep us off our feet, will be released beginning July 30.

Isabel Marant gets on board with resale, but with a charitable twist

Isabel Marant has announced that the brand will launch a secondary site to encourage the resale process. The site, named Isabel Marant Vintage, will accept donations of the brand’s used clothing that have  resale potential in exchange for store vouchers for stores, online, and the vintage site itself. The resold or restored items will then be sold, with all proceeds going to The Isabel Marant Endowment Fund which supports women’s education and artisan craftsmanship in indigenous communities. To kick off the launch of the site, the French womenswear label will sell five surprise pieces today, all of which will retail for €145.
