Glynn Turman is the new face of Beyoncé’s IVY PARK denim line
Award-winning actor Glynn Turman, who’s been a strong presence for years in shows like The Wire, Fargo, and How To Get Away With Murder, is the new face of IVY PARK, debuting the brand’s new denim line. IVY PARK was founded in 2014 by the iconic singer Beyoncé and is now sold by high end retailers like SSENSE. The brand partnered with the decorated actor for a Western-themed short video, shot on location at Turman’s own ranch in Southern California. The video showcases the denim fits on both Turman — often astride a horse — and his granddaughter Melinda. Classic jean and jacket silhouettes with triple lines of contrasting bright blue down the sleeves and trousers perfectly capture the spirit of the Old West, while simultaneously making it all oh-so-2021.

A head-to-toe Michael Kors moment for the next digital September cover of InStyle
This has been quite the week for InStyle, having launched two successful September 2021 editions already (featuring Jennifer Aniston and Karen Elson, respectively). Now, a third cover marks designer Michael Kors’ 40 years in fashion, with his pieces modeled by Broadway’s most petite force, Kristin Chenoweth, and top model Alek Wek. While Chenoweth wears a cinched, oversized black dinner jacket, dark stockings, and matching patent black pumps, Wek is adorned in a long shimmering gold evening gown from his recent anniversary collection—which took place on the streets of the Theater District. The set also includes Broadway favorites Sarah Barelis, Jane Krakowski, and Laura Benanti, as well as the man of the hour himself, seen in his signature all black ensemble. Penned by executive editor Sarah Cristobal, the article discusses Kors’ four decades in the industry, his favorite Broadway shows, and why he thinks “A Chorus Line” most closely resembles his own career arc.

Postponed from last year, a special tribute to Academy Award winner and Tisch grad Spike Lee is set to place for September 9 at Alice Tully Hall.
