Fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh passes away at 74 years old
Most famously known for his black and white photography, we can thank the late Mr. Lindbergh for capturing more than a dozen iconic photographs that have inspired his contemporaries and continues to inspire burgeoning young talent. His most memorable work includes capturing '90s supermodels Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford to name a few. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will be cherished for decades to come, and will be missed dearly.

No photography and phones allowed at the Savage x Fenty fashion show
In a time where everything is televised on a (small) screen, Rihanna chooses the opposite when it comes to her upcoming Savage x Fenty lingerie fashion show. WWD reports that "no photographers or videographers will be allowed inside the show venue" and that phone usage will be restricted during the time of the show. Handheld devices "will be placed in a locked case that each showgoer can hold onto". The reason behind such restrictions is that the live show will be streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime Video come 20 September. Either way, this no-phone zone will prove to be a good digital detox for show-goers.
