Detroit is undergoing a renaissance, at least in terms of its reputation across the US. A few years ago, Eminem promoted Chrysler as being proudly from Detroit, a city that has been through it all, and John Varvatos now celebrates the place with a new store, opening with a VIP party featuring a live performance by Alice Cooper.
   It’s no surprise, then, to learn that Chrysler had a hand in this party, too, and both Varvatos and Cooper are Detroit natives, proud that their city is emerging out of some of its toughest years.
   The 600-strong ‘black carpet’ party, at which Cooper belted out ‘Nice Guy’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, ‘Be My Lover’, ‘Lost in America’, ‘Dirty Diamond’, ‘Bite Your Face Off’, ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Break on Thru’, ‘Foxy’, ‘My Generation’, ‚Äė18‚Äô, ‘Poison’, and ‘School‚Äôs Out’, was hosted in association with Dan Gilbert and Bedrock Real Estate.
   Other VIPs included model Kate Upton, Justin Verlander (Detroit Tigers), Michael Bolton, Nicole Curtis, Eric Ebron (Detroit Lions), Chris Chelios (NHL Hall of Famer), R&B and soul singer Dwele, Fiat‚ÄďChrysler top brass such as Al Gardner and Olivier Fran√ßois, Nate Forbes, Jim Ketai, Dan Mullen, Devin Gardner (NFL prospect) and Mojo in the Morning hosts Thomas ‘Mojo’ Carballo, Shannon Murphy, and Spike.
   Varvatos introduced the evening in his home town, saying, ‘For me, this is more than a store opening celebration. It‚Äôs a kick-off celebration of things to come to the city of Detroit. The future is bright and it‚Äôs just the beginning!’
   Cooper noted afterwards, ‘It‚Äôs great to be back in Detroit rocking out with John Varvatos.’
   Gardner said in a release, ‘The Chrysler brand has a long-standing partnership with John Varvatos that has evolved over the years, so when he asked us to be a part of this event taking place in our own backyard, we immediately said, “Yes.”‚Äô Chrysler showed off its rebodied 300 on the black carpet, helping cement its position as a Detroit icon.
   Gilbert said, ‘The immeasurable energy felt in the store solidified that the arrival of J. V.‚Äôs iconic fashion and rock ‚Äôn‚Äô roll brand in downtown Detroit is truly destined for success. With construction well underway for the M-1 Rail along the Woodward Corridor, combined with the rapid growth of retail, restaurants and tech companies opening in downtown Detroit, a grand celebration such as this one is the first of many more to come to Detroiters.’
   The new 4,600 ft¬≤, two-storey store is located at a brownstone at 1500 Woodward Avenue, and is owned and managed by Bedrock Real Estate Services. John Varvatos’ full line of menswear is represented, including John Varvatos Collection, John Varvatos Star USA and Converse by John Varvatos.

   Moss herself appears in holographic form in the exhibition.
   For those who cannot get there in person, Tinie Tempah offers a private view on the BBC’s Iplayer, with a personal tour online on March 14, at 9 p.m.

West Yorkshire-born singer‚Äďsongwriter Ed Sheeran, 23, is the next celebrity to appear on BBC2‚Äôs Top Gear.
   Sheeran will be the long-running show’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car in the next episode to air in the UK on Sunday, January 25.
   Sheeran, who does not have a driving licence, piloted the Vauxhall Astra automatic around Dunsfold Park in Surrey for the episode earlier this week.
   He had claimed earlier that he had put off taking his licence due to his fear of fast cars.
   The BBC has just released a photograph of Sheeran with the show’s ‘tamed racing driver’, the Stig.
   The time to beat on the Top Gear celebrity leaderboard with the Astra is 1 minute, 44¬∑7 seconds, recorded by American actor Aaron Paul, who drove a manual version of the car. Jack Whitehall, who like Sheeran drove the automatic, recorded 1 minute, 54¬∑5 seconds.

Taylor Swift headed out on Monday in Tribeca, New York, with her mother, father and younger brother, wearing a fashionable ensemble of a Ralph Lauren navy roll-neck sweater and coat, over a tartan skirt and woollen tights, topped with a green woollen hat.
   The singer, who recently turned 25, and who remains one of the most talked-about musicians in the occident, looked fashionable in navy and magenta. She wore a bright red lipstick and thick eyeliner.
   The family enjoyed brunch at Locanda Verde on Greenwich Street.
   Green, rather than navy, was the choice of Lauren Silverman, wearing a Melissa Odabash bikini with a straw hat and netted top while on holiday in Barbados with Simon Cowell and their son, Eric.
   Our last video is a summary of One Direction’s best moments of 2014. Still riding high, the former X Factor stars have scooped many awards, and as a group, earned $75 million in 2014.

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, the most Googled celebrity of the year and one of our news-makers of 2013, was looking stylish as she left the Greenwich Hotel in New York wearing a Breton striped sweatshirt, blazer, skinny leather pants and Givenchy sandals. Lawrence has denied that there is any involvement between her and producer Gabe Polsky, with the actress clarifying that he is the boyfriend of her best friend. The gossip media enjoy speculating‚ÄĒwhen there’s nothing happening.
   Similarly, a quick adjustment by Lady Gaga after a wardrobe malfunction revealed her Spanx merited headlines although what was more impressive, to us, was her feathery white dress, then her plunging white gown and netted overlay that she wore for her guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later that day. Gaga performed Cole Porter’s ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’ while on the show, featured below.

There’s more news from the Kering group as the company continues to shake up its brands: Puma has announced that Rihanna is the creative director of its women’s training line.
   The singer joins Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli as a global brand ambassador, and attended her first meeting in Germany with the design team on Monday.
   Rihanna says she will be ‘all over it’ when it comes to her involvement with the line. Puma says her influence on the women’s training line will be felt early in 2015.
   Kering wants to boost Puma’s profile alongside Nike and Adidas, and Rihanna’s celebrity status should earn it new adherents.
   Puma CEO Bj√łrn Gulden said in a release, ‘Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma. Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition‚ÄĒall these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. She also aligns perfectly with the values Puma strives for: to be confident, brave, determined and joyful. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women‚Äôs training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We‚Äôre delighted to have her as a partner, and we‚Äôre looking forward to what‚Äôs to come.’
   Adam Petrick, Puma’s global brand and marketing director, said, ‘Rihanna brings joy to audiences around the world but also ignites and awes. Puma admires her for never waiting for the next big thing, but more so for driving what happens next‚ÄĒin fashion, style, music and soon to be‚ÄĒsports. We can’t wait to empower women worldwide with Rihanna‚ÄĒshe demonstrates a body confidence and determination that is the exact representation of the Puma Woman.’
   Rihanna has already represented brands such as MAC, Giorgio Armani, Nivea and Renault.
