Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin Take Over the NY Knicks Front Row

Yup, it’s that time of the year again!  Of course, we’re referring to the start of the NBA season, which if we’ve learned anything from seasons past, is something of the new fashion front row for supermodels and celebrities alike!

Having been entertained by Cara Delevingne’s courtside antics last year, it comes as little surprise that this year’s season is being kicked off by fashion’s latest crop of “It” girls: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin. The gorgeous trio was spotted sitting front and center at a pre-season game between the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday where they impressed in coordinating off-duty looks.  Kendall for one looked ready to hit the runway having slicked her  hair back to better showcase her fiery red lip and matching nails. Taking cues from her bestie, Gigi kept cozy in a black cable knit sweater, cropped skinny jeans and classic black booties, while newcomer Hailey opted for an edgier grey suede moto jacket worn with leather trousers and black over-the-knee heeled boots.

Watch: Natasha Poly, Joan Smalls and More Are Badass Athletes in Alexander Wang’s New Video

At the presentation of his new H&M collaboration in New York last week, Alexander Wang not only staged a full-on runway show, but he also displayed some serious athleticism, with parkour performers and acrobats putting pieces from the H&M line to the test. Now, the campaign film for the collection has arrived, and  lo and behold, it’s taking things one step further with the help of a few tough-as-nails supermodels.

Opening with the designer in a futuristic locker room, the fashion film sees campaign models Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly and Raquel Zimmermann perparing to embark on an adrenaline-inducing competition against both the elements and  each other.  Watch as a fearless Natasha Poly scales walls and somersaults through bricks, while Joan makes her way through a blizzard on a makeshift snowboard, Isabeli dodges a flurry of balls Matrix-style, and Raquel zips around on a motorbike.  Whoever said models can’t hang with athletes clearly hasn’t seen these badass beauties in action!

Watch the film below and get ready for the intense competition that is waiting in line for the the new Alexander Wang X H&M collection when it hits shelves on November !

Shop the Look: Cara Delevingne’s Polished Black and Navy Combo

You know the tired fashion myth: Under no conditions should black and navy blue ever be paired together.  Right? Wrong!

The once-unbreakable rule was shattered to pieces last night when Cara Delevingne braved the combo for none other than a paparazzi-ridden ‘My Burberry’ fragrance event in New York’s Meatpacking district.  The supermodel and recent BFA nominee made quite the scene stepping into a nearby Sephora store, where she impressed in a racy midnight blouse and tuxedo stripe leather trousers.  Elegant, yet fitting for a true Delevingne-style party, Cara toed the line between polished and punk—the kicker to the evening look being the coordinated shoes with a navy, satin trim. Now, that’s a combo!

So THIS is What Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Have Really Been Up to…

Remember last week when rumors circulated that Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams had collaborated on a secret album in Paris?  Well, as it tuns out those rumors were only half-true— the fashion-loving duo have teamed up, just not in the way that we initially imagined.

Joining forces with fashion powerhouse Chanel, Cara and Pharrell are reportedly set to star in the brand’s latest film.  Directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the video will be screened in tandem with the forthcoming Chanel pre-fall show, which will be held in Salzburg’s grand Rococo palace, Schloss Leopoldskron, on December 2.  While details surrounding the project are sparse, WWD has learned that the mini-movie will include appearances from both Cara and Pharrell, as well as the impossibly cute six-year-old Chanel-regular, Hudson Kroenig and Pharrell’s own personal dance troupe.
