Gigi Hadid Strips Down to Lingerie for Latest Tommy Hilfiger Ad, Debuts Collaboration With Stuart Weitzman

Gigi Hadid‘s collaboration with Tommy Hilfger has taken a risqué turn!

The fashion company debuted its newest ad for the unique line, and it features Gigi stripping down to her unmentionables. Modeling a bra and matching panties, Gigi smolders as she looks directly into the camera. The 21-year-old’s look is very natural, opting for barely there makeup with just a hint of lip gloss.

Gigi’s latest ad for Tommy Hilfiger arrives on the same day as her collection with Stuart Weitzman hits shelves. Described as a “luxe hiking bootie,” the Gigi Boot comes in copper, black and iron gray.

The collaboration is part of the shoe company’s “commitment to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise, an organization dedicated to making quality education accessible to kids everywhere.”

Along with her shoe collection, Gigi debuted a promotional video directed by none other than James Franco. In the video, titled #doitright, Gigi steps into a boxing ring to battle her opponents, all while wearing the Gigi Boot, of course.

The video was inspired by her favorite workout. Boxing as a fitness routine has been Gigi’s go-to for quite a while, as she also partnered with Reebok as the newest face for its #PerfectNever movement.

“Working out isn’t only physical for me. It’s mental. It helps me escape the noise in my head,” she shared. “It’s the only time my mind goes quiet.”

Hear Kenny Chesney’s New Song ‘Rich and Miserable’

More than half a century after Mick Jagger first sang, “I can’t get no satisfaction,” Kenny Chesney takes that sentiment and expands it to money, power, success — all the things we chase, even though they don’t guarantee happiness —in his bombastic new song, “Rich and Miserable.”

“We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows,” the country star sings in the brand-new tune from his upcoming Cosmic Hallelujah album.

The thought-provoking lyrics serve as societal criticism: We live in a world where “enough is never enough,” and “we won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable.” Chesney delivers them with fury, sounding a bit like Imagine Dragons in cowboy hats. It’s a departure from his signature sound, yet on par with what just may be his most experimental and introspective album yet.

“Rich and Miserable” is the third song released from Cosmic Hallelujah, which comes out this Friday, October 28th. It follows the chart-topping P!nk duet, “Setting the World on Fire,” and another wake-up call song, “Noise,” which laments all of the technology, media and other nuisances that stop us from taking time to smell the roses.

Victoria Beckham for Target Coming in Spring 2017: All the Details

Copying Victoria Beckham‘s style is about to become easier—and more affordable.

Target announced Thursday that it has teamed up with Beckham for a capsule collection to be released in the spring of 2017. Victoria Beckham for Target will include more than 200 items, including tops and bottoms for women, plus “corresponding styles for girls, toddler and baby.”

Beckham’s line will range in price from $6 to $70, with most articles costing under $40. Items will be offered in sizes XS-3X for women and NB-XL for girls, toddler and baby. The collection will be available Apr. 9 through Apr. 30, 2017, or while supplies last, and at all Target stores and Target.com. Select pieces will also be sold online for global shoppers via VictoriaBeckham.com.

Target’s designer collaborations are nothing new, as it’s worked with Jason Wu, Lilly Pulitzer, Marimekko, Missoni, Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Zac Posen and other high-end fashion houses.

But why did Victoria want to team up with the major retailer?

“For a while now, I have been thinking how great it would be to work on clothes for a customer that either doesn’t want to pay or can’t pay designer prices,” the 42-year-old fashion designer said in an interview with Target.com. “I loved the idea of opening the brand up to a wider audience and being able to share my vision with a broader customer base. So when Target—a company based on accessibility and inclusiveness—proposed a collaboration which combined all of these things, it was an easy decision to make.”

The full collection will be revealed at a later date.

“I have always said that the best way for me to learn about new areas is to work with an expert in that field,” she adds. “In order to do something well, you need to surround yourself with the right people, and the Target team members have been the right people for me. It has been such a pleasure working with their team. What they have provided me with is a really unique opportunity to connect with families across the U.S. I’m so excited for the months ahead, and for everyone to see a collection that I am really proud of.”

Victoria’s Target line will feature familiar silhouettes from her Victoria, Victoria Beckham line.

“From the outset of my brand, I have always designed clothes that I want to wear, and that’s exactly what I have done here,” says Victoria, who launched her namesake label in 2008. “But this time there are also clothes that my daughter [Harper Beckham] would love to wear, too!”

Indeed, this will be Victoria’s foray into childrenswear. It’s something she “wanted to do for a long time,” she says. “…I think the clothes reflect just how much fun I had designing them! Being a mother has helped me understand what’s important when it comes to the category. I have had years of learning that function is often just as important as form, and that children need to be able to feel comfortable and free in what they wear. For me it was really all about finding a balance between the fun elements and the real-life functionality of a garment.”
