On Saturday, the UNICEF ball in Capri, Italy, saw a lot of celebrity guests and that included model Leni Klum, daughter to the famous supermodel Heidi Klum.

A sense of style seems to run in the family, because Leni showed up wearing an absolutely stunning spaghetti strap dress with a sexy plunging neckline that showcased her décolletage.

The piece was made from a flower lace pattern overlay with a nude slip beneath. The dress ended in a black fringe around her ankles and she paired the dress with a black open-toed, strapped sandals.

She left her long brown hair down and wore a simple makeup look that emphasised her natural beauty.

Leni was born to her famous mother in 2004 with her partner at the time, Flavio Briatore. She was adopted by her stepdad, the musician Seal, in 2005.

The UNICEF event was intended to raise money for children in the Ukraine, and featured a performance from Jennifer Lopez.

The 18-year-old made her debut in Vogue Germany’s January/February 2021 with her mother. She’s already worked with brands like Superga, Michael Kors, and Dolce & Gabbana, walking in the latter’s show in Sicily last month.

She also walked in the 2021 Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda show in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square.

‘I was scared it was going to fall off, so they ended up sewing it to my hair.’

Leni said the designers handled all the adjustments by hand. She also said she had been wanting to model since she

This Is How You Keep a Fashion Brand Alive for 25 Years

It’s a Wednesday morning at the headquarters of 25-year-old contemporary women’s line Tibi, and everything is business as usual. The brand’s tall, ashy-blonde founder, Amy Smilovic, is poring over a rack of clothes with her style director, Sarah Brody. They’re about to depart on a trip to Dubai, where Smilovic will host styling sessions and shoot content for retail partners in the region.

Smilovic is clad in exactly the kind of minimal, sophisticated look that Tibi’s devotees love: a taupe silk shirt tucked into tonal trousers. She adds a nearly identical blouse and pants to the rail, where they join an oversize brown suede bomber, wide-leg blue jeans, and a lavender sweater. Once that’s settled, she and Brody rush into Smilovic’s office to host the brand’s semiweekly Instagram Live, a stream-of-consciousness styling chat that runs for about an hour.

It’s all par for the course for a brand that’s hitting its quarter-century milestone. But most contemporary labels never make it that far. If you glance at the list of designers who showed alongside Tibi during New York Fashion Week in 2008—to pick a year at random—it reads like an in memoriam of names long gone: DooRi, Abaete, Behnaz Sarapfour, Erin Fetherston, Richard Chai, L.A.M.B. Even the brands that survived past the decade mark didn’t have an easy time of it. Milly, which would have stood next to Tibi in department stores, hit its stride dressing Michelle Obama, only to part ways with founder Michelle Smith in 2019. Rebecca Taylor, another feminine midpriced label, saw its founder quit that same year. You could explain these goodbyes as a part of fashion’s life cycle, but that’s not
