Kanye In Helmut Lang Project

It’s no secret that Kanye West is a Helmut Lang fan. At the time he launched Yeezy in 2015, he told Style.com, “I had a heartfelt discussion with all of these fucking Helmut Lang images that I stared at for so many years.” Simple enough. Today, Helmut Lang celebrates that fandom with a new project by Exactitudes that shows the brand’s multigenerational fans, including West, Solange Knowles, and Vogue’s own Yohana Lebasi. In images shot by Exactitudes founders Ari Versus and Ellie Uyttenbroek, the cult of Helmut is portrayed as diverse and yet banded together by its obsession with the brand, with each person wearing a mix of archive, re-edition, and new Helmut Lang pieces designed by Shayne Oliver. West sports his own archive pieces, while Solange mixes Lang’s re-edition styles (a Tom of Finland tee) and new shorts designed by Oliver.

Reese Witherspoon’s Daughter!

Ava Phillippe, the 18-year-old daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, just made her formal debut at the annual le Bal des Débutantes, held at the Peninsula Paris. Witherspoon escorted her look-a-like daughter down the red carpet Saturday night at the illustrious society event, which featured a total of 20 participants, including six Americans. The official date for the younger Phillippe, however, was the 19-year-old Maharaja of Jaipur Padmanabh Singh, a friend of Prince William who’s also on India’s national polo team. Witherspoon was accompanied by her husband Jim Toth.

YSL Museum Opening In Paris

On Thursday a new jewel of a museum is to be celebrated in an elegant 19th-century mansion here. The great and the good of the city are expected to attend: political heavyweights, actresses such as Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Gainsbourg, designers like Alber Elbaz and Anthony Vaccarello, creative director at Yves Saint Laurent.

But the man whose dream it was will not be there.

Pierre Bergé, a former chief executive of Yves Saint Laurent, died Sept. 8 at the age of 86. This fall his last monumental projects are finally coming to fruition: the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, which opens to the public next week in the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation building, and the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakesh, in Morocco, scheduled to open Oct. 19.
