Ford’s flick evolves…

Reports indicate that George Clooney will no longer produce Tom Ford’s film Nocturnal Animals due to scheduling differences. Clooney said, “I love the project and think Tom is fantastic. We just couldn’t do it when he needed to go.” But when one star departs, two more enter. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are reportedly in talks for the lead roles. [Page Six]

Shopping for a cause…

The Fashion Girls for Humanity organization, with the support from the CFDA, is holding an online auction to benefit the areas affected by the Nepal earthquake. The auction is currently talking place on Charity Buzz and items up for grabs include two front-row tickets to Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2016 runway show, a lunch and tour of CFDA headquarters with CEO Steven Kolb, and an eight-hour interior design consultation with Marc Normand Gelinas. Proceeds from the auctions will be donated to Prabal Gurung’s charity, Shikshya Foundation Nepal, as well as the Waves for Water organization. [Charity Buzz]

The best of the best…

It’s official: Louis Vuitton is the most valuable brand in fashion—at least according to Forbes. The publication released its annual list of The World’s Most Valuable Brands, and inevitably the top three spots were awarded to tech giants Apple, Microsoft, and Google, respectively. LV, coming in at 14, and Nike, at 18, were the only fashion brands to be included in the top 25, while H&M secured 33rd place and Gucci came in 42nd. L’Oréal was recognized as the most valuable beauty brand in the 34th spot, and Hermès, Cartier, Zara, Prada, and Chanel all made it within the top 100. [Forbes]

Footwear expansions at Opening Ceremony…

Opening Ceremony has signed a global licensing agreement with Aldo to produce a line of footwear for Spring/Summer 2016. Of the agreement, Opening Ceremony cofounder Carol Lim said, “We are committed to growing this category, and it was important for us to expand into areas in the footwear line that we previously were not able to access due to production constraints. With APS [Aldo Product Services], we don’t run into those types of issues anymore.” [Business of Fashion]

Kate Moss’ new gig…

Rumor has it Simon Cowell is attempting to recruit Kate Moss as a judge for the next season of The X Factor U.K. Moss revealed her love for the talent show during a stint on another British reality program, Gogglebox. Granted, the show is about singing and Moss’ talents mainly lie elsewhere—we still have no doubt she’d be able to teach contestants a thing or two about commanding the attention of an audience.
