Virgil Abloh’s Vuitton Is Bigger Than Supreme (WWD)
Louis Vuitton menswear has a hit on its hands, and it’s all thanks to Virgil Abloh. Based on the sales from a pop-up shop in Tokyo, his first collection for the luxury house is outselling its popular collaboration with Supreme last year. The full collection is set to hit Vuitton boutiques at the end of the month.

In other Abloh news, he is also launching his first jewelry collection. What is interesting is that he is releasing the pieces under his own name, rather than his brand Off-White. The first image shows a necklace made to resemble linked paperclips (very Margiela). The piece will be available for pre-order in Paris from January 17 to 29.

Gisele Bündchen Labeled “Bad Brazilian” by Agriculture Minister (The Guardian)
Gisele Bündchen has a long, celebrated history of environmental activism in her home country of Brazil. She has been a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program since 2009. But apparently her vocal criticism of lax regulations — and deregulations — has caused “PR problems” for the government. Brazil’s new agricultural minister under far-right president Jair Bolsonaro, Tereza Cristina Dias, was asked in an interview on Monday about the attention the model brings to the government’s practices. Dias called Bündchen a “bad Brazilian” for how she is shaping the country’s global image. Dias then said that Bündchen should act more as an ambassador for Brazil, promoting the country as a “global vanguard of conservation.”

Yolanda Hadid Swears Off Plastic Surgery (Page Six)
The Hadid matriarch took to Instagram yesterday to announced that she is free from a number of the cosmetic enhancements she once had. “Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, exstensions [sic] and all the bullshit I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me,” she wrote. “It took me many years of undoing some bad choices I made for myself before I finally found the freedom to sustainable internal beauty and acceptance of what is the best version of myself by no standards but my own.”
