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}

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}
