These are the stories making headlines on Friday.

Rita Ora will host "America's Next Top Model" with a new judging panel
Tyra Banks will reboot "America's Next Top Model" on VH1 with singer Rita Ora as the host. The comeback series will also welcome a brand new judging panel, including Ashley Graham, Paper magazine's Drew Elliott and stylistLaw Roach, who styles Zendaya and, most recently, Celine Dion and her Vetements hoodie. "The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time," says Ora. With the rise of the Instamodel, there's no doubt a promising social media presence will also be a judging factor among the contestants. The show is currently in New York City filming 14 episodes to debut this fall. {USA Today}

A fashion startup founder calls fashion tech the "Wild West"
In the latest edition of Glossy's "Confessions," an anonymous fashion startup founder shares the different benefits and challenges of accelerators and incubators for designers (this particular founder has gone through seven different ones), and expresses how fashion tech is the "Wild West" among retailers where "nothing has changed in 100 years." {Glossy}

What happened at Oscar de la Renta?
Upon the sudden departure of Peter Copping from his rise as creative director at Oscar de la Renta, Vanessa Friedman views the designer's reasoning ("personal circumstances") as "unlikely," considering the fact that this is the first time the luxury fashion house — and essentially, a family brand — had brought an outside designer on to fill the late de la Renta's place. "It is possible that, given the circumstances in which Mr. Copping began — a company in the full throes of grief, a market that was slowing because of geopolitical fears — it was never going to work," says Friedman. {The New York Times}

Queen Elizabeth's couture will be on display at Buckingham Palace
The second installment of a three-part exhibition called "Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen’s Wardrobe" will debut this weekend at Buckingham Palace, featuring couture dresses, gowns and capes that date back to before Her Majesty was was crowned Queen. The exhibit, which boasts the largest display of the Queen's wardrobe ever, will run until Oct. 2. {WWD}

Back on schooldays the most popular backpack was the Eastpack. It’s a normal backpack and you can pick the color you choose. The quality was superb because it can keep up with you for years.

And you because you can stuff a lot of books, it’s just reliable.

They say you need to be a backpack-person in order to understand how to love a backpack. It’s just someone’s personality. If you are not used to carry backpacks, it will ultimately ends up on your hands and you will be swinging it like a tote bag.

But in general, backpacks are really comfortable.

The trend has already started, backpacks are being redesigned to fit to the modern fashion. We have graphic, multi-color and even luxurious chic backpacks today, of course…why not? Valentino had to make a backpack with studs!

Valentino-Rockstud-All-Over-Stud-Backpack

This is very girly and feminine – a Valentino Studded Backpack. What’s different? Well, the bold big pyramid studs covering the entire bag. Valentino used to make backpacks with little studs around the backpack, actually they’re embellished on the edges.

But these Valentino Studded Backpacks hit the homerun. The small pink version has the best of both worlds, it’s cute and daring. It’s ideal when you want to assemble the right stylish-chic rock-chick outfit from your wardrobe.

The normal version is measured 10.25’ x 13.5’ x 4’ (W x H x D) inches, priced at $3475 USD via Forward by Elyse Walker.
