The Gap Unveils Fall Ads, Ralph Lauren Tops Pay List
  • The Gap is continuing its practice of using of-the-moment fashion figures in ads: The fall campaign includes Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Georgina Chapman, and Ryan McGinley alongside actual mannequins like Chanel Iman and Lily Donaldson. [Fashionologie]
  • Ralph Lauren came out on top of WWD's list of the highest-paid fashion retailers. He took home $34.2 million this past fiscal year, which was no doubt happy news to the ex-Polo employees suing the company for gouging them on pay. [WWD]
  • Were you planning to stock up on satin frocks and pantsuits at Gianfranco Ferre this weekend? Too late: The Madison Avenue flagship just closed. [WWD]
  • The ever modest and unassuming Tara Subkoff says that her film noir-inspired line for Bebe is not just for her "movie star friends," but for real people. Who may presumably have balked at paying $5,000 for a "reworked" vintage dress with an Imitation of Christ label sewn in. [NYDN]
  • We heard about Diane von Furstenberg designing a Wonder Woman-inspired line for Warner Bros. Now childhood pals Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, Alice Roi and Laura Poretzky are collaborating on a Supergirl resort line for the company. [WWD]
  • This year's nominees for the Gucci Group award, which is bestowed upon an artist deemed to have made a significant contribution to film, are Julian Schnabel, Isaac Julien, Adam Yauch and Steve McQueen. [Vogue UK]
