Famous face
Irish heiress and fashion aficionado Daphne Guinness has signed on to star in the NARS Fall 2010 makeup campaign. Guinness and François Nars are longtime friends and have collaborated artistically before: on a photography project last fall. The makeup line will feature a royal purple eye shadow named for Guinness. It all kicks off July 15 at nars.com. (WWD)

Couture clutch
Oscar de la Renta has joined Louis Vuitton and Gucci by jumping on the high-tech design wagon: The brand  just released its own line of iPad cases. The limited edition iPad clutches are now available in red, white, yellow and grey at oscardelarenta.com. (WWD)

Posh drive
Victoria Beckham has made a few attempts to produce her own designs, with mostly lukewarm responses. Maybe luxury items will be more her forte (she of all people knows luxury). Beckham was just named a creative design executive at Range Rover, with her first project being a special edition Range Rover Evoque model. Seems celeb status is all you need for a design permit in… just about anything. (WWD)

New direction
Massimiliano Giornetti has been appointed the new creative director of all fields at Salvatore Ferragamo, where he has worked for 10 years. Giornetti recently told British Vogue that felt like he grew up in the company, as he began as an assistant to the knitwear designer in menswear, and ended up as director of menswear. Sounds like the right person for the job. (Vogue UK)
