If you’ve paid attention to any celebrity fashion trends in the past few years, kilts for men continuously rank incredibly popular among red carpet looks time and time again. Sure, it’s not like you’re going to see somebody rock a plaid-coated kilt at every celebrity escapade, but more often than not we’ll spot a male celebrity stepping on the scene in the old Scottish “skirt” made for men, reminding us that the trend isn’t a dying one in the slightest.

Today’s Top Deals

Many male celebrities with Scottish heritage or not have been spotted sporting the classic kilt. Well-known names such as Vin Diesel, Lenny Kravitz and most recently, Travis Barker (alongside his new wife Kourtney Kardashian at the 2022 Met Gala) have dipped their toes down into kilt

Yseult Redefines “French Girl Style” on the Cannes Red Carpet

Certain corners of the American Internet have long been obsessed with the idea of “French Girl style.” In fact, the entire plot of Netflix’s mega-hit Emily in Paris could be boiled down to “basic American girl tries in vain to capture that elusive ‘French girl style.’” The term itself is mostly innocuous, but it does conjure up a very specific (and limited) vision: a white, thin woman with that paradoxically perfectly messy hair who wears vintage Chanel blazers and ballet flats as casually as a Hanes t-shirt and flip flops.

ZMO.ai secures $8M led by Hillhouse to create AI generated fashion models

With breakthroughs in machine learning, it’s no longer uncommon to see algorithmically generated bodies that can move and talk authentically like real humans. The question is now down to whether startups offering such products can achieve a sustainable business model. Some of them have demonstrated that potential and attracted investors.

ZMO.ai, founded by a team of Chinese entrepreneurs who have spent years studying and working abroad, just closed an $8 million Series A financing round led by GL Ventures. GGV Capital and GSR Ventures also participated in the round.

The startup has found a healthy demand from fashion e-commerce companies that are struggling to hire and afford models due to their growing number of stock-keeping units (SKUs), or styles, as consumer tastes become more changeable. Using the generative adversarial network (GAN), ZMO has created a piece of software to help them create virtual full bodies of models by defining simple
