Sara Sampaio fronts GENNY’s Spring Summer ’23 campaign

Saras, unite. Sara Cavazza Facchini, GENNY creative director, has cast supermodel Sara Sampaio in the Italian brand’s new Spring Summer ’23 campaign. With the collection being centered around “good energy,” the designer explained why she had the upbeat super front of mind. “I chose Sara Sampaio because I saw that imprint of femininity consistent with the inspiration of the new collection in her expressive capacity. She is a young woman, capable of strong emotional impulses and a natural aptitude for empathy.” Shot in LA with a nod to the endearing California in the ’70s aesthetic, Sampaio is seen in a range of pieces from the latest line, photographed by Dario Catellani.

Diane Von Furstenberg helped pay off friend André Leon Talley’s debts

A literal (former) princess and an angel? Could only be DVF. PageSix learned that the wrap dress creator paid off her late friend André Leon Talley’s debts amid a dispute and legal battle over the home he was living in. Talley had been renting a Westchester home from former Manolo Blahnik president George Malkemus and his partner Anthony Yurgaitis, who both claimed that the fashion editor was in hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt. When the couple took Talley to court seeking over $500,000 in arrears and asking for him to leave the home, Von Furstenberg reportedly stepped in and wrote a check to help him out of the red. When pressed for comment, the designer gracefully said: “André was one of my dearest friends. I would have done anything for him. I would like to respect his memory and George’s for that matter. I have nothing else to say and I thank you for respecting this.” Talley’s lawyer in said case, Erik B. Weinick, added: “We were honored to have been able to assist Andre in resolving his dispute with Mr. Malkemus and Mr. Yurgaitis prior to his passing, but beyond that, have no comment other than what is in the Court record.”
