Miu Miu Taps Actress Stacy Martin To Front Its First Fragrance Ads
Miu Miu’s debut fragrance will be out this September, and they’ve already revealed the yet-t0-be-named perfume’s campaign gal. Actress Stacy Martin will star in the ads, following her turn in Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 campaign. Martin starred in last year’s titillating Nymphomaniac, and for her first Miu Miu campaign, she was shot by Steven Meisel. Why was Martin the right gal for the gig? “Her artistic rigor and iconoclastic spirit align perfectly with the woman Miuccia Prada envisions for the brand: at once refined and rebellious, but above all, fearless,” according to a release. Stay tuned for the scent’s name…

Fendi’s New Roman Headquarters
As it prepares to celebrate its 90th anniversary, Fendi is fusing its image with a beloved symbol of Rome—and it’s an impressive and imposing one at that: the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana. The project to transform the 75-year-old, never-occupied structure, which features six stories of symmetrical arches and is nicknamed “the Square Colosseum,” into new corporate headquarters for Fendi’s 450 employees was spearheaded by chairman and chief executive officer Pietro Beccari. At Palazzo Fendi on Via Condotti in central Rome, the former offices will most likely be converted into a center of cultural interest and the flagship is slated to expand onto a third level that will include a space dedicated to VIP customers.
