Often times than not, the quest for originality in designer eyewear can seem to be daunting. Simple tweaks in standard shapes whether it’s oval, wayfarer, and aviator tends to all blend into one at the end of trying on numerous pairs. But what really differentiates one brand from the rest? Los Angeles-based designer Jerome Mage of Jacques Marie Mage eyewear sought out to disrupt the eyewear design game with his latest collection which, “breaks from the banality of retroactive fads and imitative fashion.”

The eyewear line results in a micro-produced high quality product, with limited quantity focusing on bringing subtle opulent details to the forefront.

Kristen Stewart in Chanel’s Sultry New Campaign

We spoke in December about K-Stew’s burgeoning relationship with Chanel, when she portrayed Coco in a ten minute movie, Once and Forever, directed by Laggerfeld which was rumored to be the first of many Kristen Stewart appearances on behalf of the brand. As the new muse of the moment for Chanel having just starred in the campaign collection Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas, she’s back at it again with this fierce new campaign for Chanel’s Eye Collection. According to WWD, the series of portraits are meant to reveal the different facets of the contemporary woman. Stewart appears in four photos posted on Tuesday by Vogue Brasil on Instagram. The campaign features close-up beauty shots of Kristen, in black and white shot by legendary photographer Mario Testino.  The 25-year-old rocks a variety of hairstyles in the shots, from casual tousled locks to a chic slicked back ’do. In all the newly released pictures, the Twilight star is wearing a comfy, black cardigan sweater. The collection features a stacked deck of eyeshadows, mascara, and brow enhancers.

Lily-Rose Depp: Model (& Movie Star) Monday

Not many sixteen year olds can say that they’ve got two blockbuster movies on the way and a campaign for Chanel circulating the press, but then not many sixteen year olds are like Lily-Rose Depp. To say she hit the genetic lottery would be an absolute understatement. The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has the face of a Botticelli angel and cheekbones that could cut like a knife. Having celebrated her “Sour” Sixteen earlier this year, this teen is slowly cementing her place as a fashion It-girl and seems to shrug it off with the nonchalance of only someone with as cool of parents as she could. Lily-Rose Depp has been dominating the street style scene with looks that eschew Tomboy toughness and demure grungey goodness. Lily-Rose Depp caused a riot at Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show when she sat front-row with her famous mom dressed in head-to-toe Chanel. Though the 16-year-old beauty already looks like a model, she’s never did an official photo shoot. It was only a matter of time before Lily-Rose Depp landed an “official” position with Chanel. Named the newest ambassador of the storied French house, the 16-year-old serves as the face of the Chanel Pearl eyewear collection (which dropped earlier this month). Sporting round frames studded with precious white beads in the ad, Lily-Rose Depp is depicted as a “baby doll in a world imbued with sweetness and femininity.” While her campaign isn’t nearly as trippy as her model mom’s starring role in Jean-Paul Goude’s commercial for Coco perfume—during which Vanessa Paradis swings precariously from a perch inside a life-size birdcage—we definitely see why Karl is keeping it in the family. “Lily-Rose Depp is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,” as explained by Lagerfeld. Will a mother-daughter beauty spot be next? By the look of that lipstick on a fresh-faced Depp, one can only hope a makeup contract is already in the works. She’s also recently completed a shoot for French Vogue, in a Victorian inspired spread that mimics the atmosphere of her birthday party from earlier this year. Though she’s only in high school, Depp is on her way to becoming something of a cultural force. She’s swiftly working her way up the fashion ranks thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, but she’s also helping raise LGBTQI awareness. Last month, she came out in support of the “Self Evident Truths” project and, in turn, as someone who identifies as anything other than 100% straight.
