ARMANI SNIFFS OUT CELEBS: Roberta Armani, Giorgio Armani's 36-year-old niece, is becoming a more visible face for the company as it continues to deepen its relationships with celebrities. After dressing Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney for their Cannes premieres last month, Armani jetted to Madrid for Beyoncé Knowles' European debut as the new face of Emporio Armani's Diamonds fragrance, and will land Stateside with the star in August. "For someone so young, she has accomplished so much and is always so together," said Armani, explaining the house's decision to sign its first singer spokesmodel.

Armani's friendship with Katie Holmes has caused speculation that Mrs. Tom Cruise may become the next famous face for the brand, but Armani says, "The timing wouldn't be right, considering we just signed Beyoncé." But she does give the thumbs-up to Holmes' style: "She is a model for how young women today should dress. There aren't very many good examples in Hollywood these days." For that, Armani looks to Holmes' European counterparts, Sienna Miller and Marion Cotillard, whom she feels would represent the brand well. Future deals on the horizon, perhaps?

HIGH TIMES AT TOPSHOP: The dust may have barely settled since the media scrum at the launch of Kate Moss' debut collection for Topshop last month, but the model isn't resting on her laurels. The next Kate Moss Topshop collection, for high summer, launched in U.K. Topshop stores and on the retailer's Web site Wednesday, and the 30-piece range includes a one-shouldered, textured cotton dress in white, lemon and black; a simple black string bikini, and plenty of embroidered caftans, bikinis and maxi-length dresses. "This is an essential holiday capsule collection inspired by my travels," said Moss. "I love the one-shoulder dress. A friend bought me something similar so we changed the length and added the inverted pleat, it's so easy to dress up or down." The new collection is the second installment of the four collections a year the model is set to design for the store, with a fall line featuring tweed pieces and beaded dresses set to land in August, and a winter collection due in October. In between collections, there will be intermittent drops, such as a collection of vivid summer dresses that will arrive in July.
