There's not much that Drew Barrymore doesn't do. Aside from generally being a badass, she's an award winning actress and director (hello Charlie's Angels) too and now she's turning her hand to photography.
This week Tommy Hilfiger released images of the brand's new limited edition tote in aid of breast cancer awareness month in October. The campaign, which stars French singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, was shot by Barrymore. 'It was great to work with Drew,' Gainsbourg said. 'She was very charming and lovely and funnym and she brought a real positive energy to the set. As a fellow actress, she made me feel very comfortable during the shoot.'
The bag is on sale now at £225 with £100 of the price doing directly to Breast Health International, a non-profit organisation that advances breast cancer research and treatment.

According to the title, Horowitz was 'one of the architects of Tommy Hilfiger's success' after serving as the CEO of the company for 19 years. Now at DVF, many have begun to speculate that he has plans to take the company public or at least look for big outside investment.

Celine isn't the only brand canceling its Fall runway show. Today Chado Ralph Rucci confirmed that they will not present their collection in a runway show at Lincoln Centre on February 12 as planned. Instead, the collection can be viewed in private showroom appointments.
After the news was announced, many began to speculate that the cancellation was due to the scheduling clash with the Tommy Hilfiger show, but this was quickly denied by the brand's communications director Rosina Rucci. In explaining the decision she said that while "cost is always a factor [it] was not the driving force."
