Football and Footwear Get Fancy, DVF Dress Turns 40, and Miley Makes Headlines (Again)

(Courtesy of Total Beauty)Football is getting even more fashionable; CFDA designers (as well as Bloomie's) are celebrating the upcoming New York-based Superbowl by turning official NFL helmets into haute couture. The creations will be auctioned off for charity, and proceeds will benefit the National Football League Foundation. [WWD]

Not only is football getting a high fashion makeover, Nike, too, will soon collaborate with Givenchy creative director Ricardo Tisci on a couture line of footwear, cleverly coined Nike RT, due out this Spring. []

The legendary designer tells WWD, “I never try to make a major fashion statement but I want to be the friend in a woman’s closet." DVF also plans to celebrate the milestone with a new fashion week venue. [WWD]

(Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images North America)We anticipated a possible partnership brewing when Miley Cyrus presented Marc Jacobs with the Superstar Award at Fashion Group International's Night of Stars in October, dressed in one of his gowns. So it was no surprise to us when Jacobs named the pop star the new face of his campaign. Not everyone seems to be onboard, however, with the latest leading lady. In fact, Jacobs’ go-to photographer Juergen Teller refused to shoot the new campaign starring the controversial star. “I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist,” the designer told WWD. “He just didn’t want to shoot her.” [Fashionista]
