Megan Thee Stallion covers Elle May 2023
After coming forward about her shooting, facing a long legal battle and handling all this amidst endless gossip and gaslighting, Megan Thee Stallion is sharing her truth. In an "as told to" story for Elle, the rapper reflects on her experience as a survivor, the shock of people not believing her and how she wished she could have handled the situation privately. "I've accepted this chapter of my life as part of my journey, but I will not allow it to define my journey. I've been dragged through the mud, but I'm so happy that I'm able to finally come out of it with a new perspective," she told the magazine. The musician was photographed by Adrienne Raquel and styled by Law Roach. {Elle}

Bottega Veneta releases new film
Titled "Craft In Motion," Bottega Veneta's new film showcases the time and craftsmanship that go into producing leather goods at its atelier in Montebello Vicentino, northern Italy. Directed by Massimiliano Bomba, scenes show the label's artisanal workshop and its signature intrecciato weaving method utilized for bags such as the Cabat, Kalimero and Sardine. "Craft is not a 'trend,'" Creative Director Matthie Blazy said in a press release announcing the film. "Neither is it something that has to be improved. It is a timeless technology. The irregularities of handwork make each Bottega Veneta design unique. This for me is true luxury." {Fashionista inbox}
