• Gisele Bündchen released her second collection of lingerie earlier this week. It has three themes — Diva, Wish, and Rococo — and this time, she says she “invest[ed] in colors and details that make all the difference,” adding, “I hope that women like it!” [GiseleBundchen.com]

• On whether he’s sick of the Rachel Zoe drama, Brad Goreski said, “I wouldn’t say I’m sick of it. It just doesn’t exist, so it’s not really anything that I put my energy towards. The only thing to say is that I wish Rachel all the best, and I’ve totally moved on and have my own business, and she has her thing going on. It’s a pretty simple process of an assistant leaving a boss, and whatever her feelings are towards me are her feelings.” [Refinery29]

• Angela Molina, a 56-year-old Spanish actress regarded by the English–speaking Internet as a “beautiful mystery woman,” covers this month’s Harper’s Bazaar Spain in a leather trench coat. [Fashion Copious]

• Tracy Reese collaborated with Anthropologie on a seven-piece capsule collection of dresses, available tomorrow. [Fashonologie]

• Christian Louboutin is designing his own interpretation (read: with red soles) of the famous “glass slipper” in honor of the rerelease of Disney’s Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD this fall. [WWD]

• To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Guess will release a new coffee table book titled A Third Decade of Guess Images. It’ll be filled with alleged Gucci designs. [WWD]

• Marks & Spencer tapped Absolutely Fabulous’s Joanna Lumley for its new clothes swapping campaign, called “Shwopping,” which launches today. [Telegraph UK]

• Simon Doonan says, jokes, or at the very least leaves hope that there’s a movie being made about his life as a window dresser. “Stay tuned. Confessions of a Window Dresser has been doing the rounds since it came out in 1998. Hopefully it will happen before my teeth are sitting in a mug next to my bed.” We’re tuned. [Exposed Zippers]

• John Varvatos doesn’t sound so into the spectacle side of Fashion Star: “It’s not my thing you know? I always say, I think we do beautiful runway shows, but I’m never going to do a Broadway production. It’s about the clothes and I’d even say if the show continues to go on, you’ll probably see less of that and more of the clothes.” If the show continues? Say what? [Shift/BuzzFeed]

• On May 5, Helmut Lang (the man) will unveil twenty new pieces at his art show, “Helmut Lang: Sculptures,” in New York. [Style.com]

• Hudson + Broad, a visual merchandising firm, filed a lawsuit in Manhattan’s U.S. District Court against J.C. Penney, claiming breach of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets, after the group designed LED squares for Penney’s “Fair and Square” campaign but the brand ordered the decorations from other manufacturers. “Fair and Square” — how’s that for irony? [WWD]

• In a keynote address at the eighth annual Retail and Luxury Goods Conference at Harvard Business School, Max Azria said, “I want to be the biggest and the best in the field. If today I am the 20th-best in America, I want to be the first.” No mention of that weird condom lawsuit. [WWD]
