Rihanna‘s already the muse to every high fashion designer, but now she’s joining the likes of Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence as a face of Dior (fun fact: She’s the first black woman to serve in this role!). According to Women’s Wear Daily, she snagged the lead in the brand’s fourth installment of their “Secret Garden” video series. The print and film campaigns, shot by Steven Klein in Versailles, are scheduled to run this spring.

Melissa McCarthy has been getting our hopes up for her plus-size clothing line again, and again and again, and now she’s finally revealing the launch date!

Women’s Wear Daily reports that the collection (named Melissa McCarthy Seven7) is set to debut in August with pieces hitting department and specialty stores in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. as well as an e-commerce site. The focus will be on casual sportswear, with prices ranging from $59 to $159. It was also announced that the actress will chat with fans on the styles and fabrics of the line on her website, MelissaMcCarthy.com. “I think women want to be able to dress for their mood,” she says. “My pieces mix and match, because some days we want to be rock ‘n roll and some days we want to be more polished. I love that I’ll be able to chat with other women about fashion and see how they’re wearing my clothes.”

Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old Little League Baseball sensation, teamed up with M4D3 (Make A Difference Everyday) to design baseball-inspired sneakers (check out the stitching detail!), with proceeds benefiting the Because I Am a Girl initiative to help lift four million girls in the developing world out of poverty. “I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool,” says Davis. The collection comes in three colors (blue, pink and white) and is available in both kids’ and women’s sizes and is available for purchase now.
