Laura Biagiotti, an Italian fashion designer who conquered global markets with her soft, loose women's clothes and luxurious knits that won her the nickname "Queen of Cashmere," died on Friday following a heart attack. She was 73.

Biagiotti suffered the heart attack Wednesday evening at her estate outside of Rome.

Doctors were able to resuscitate her but by then serious brain damage had occurred.

Her daughter, Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna, announced her mother's death on Twitter, conveying the news with a Biblical passage:

"In the house of my father there are many places. If not, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you."

Biagiotti began designing women's clothes in the 1960s and by the 1980s was making her mark. wistv.com
Earlier this week, Kendall Jenner took on Cannes in socks and heels.

The combination may have been risky, but it offered a refreshing change of pace at a film festival that prides itself on tradition and from the look of things yesterday, Jenner has more accessory game-changers stowed in her suitcase.

Jenner spent the morning sunbathing on a yacht wearing a fun and flirty two-piece from Lisa Marie Fernandez.

The high-waisted briefs flattered her figure and came with a sailor-inspired button detail fit for coasting along the French Riviera.

Debunking the myth that you can’t wear a statement hat with sunglasses, Jenner paired Jacquemus’s provencal straw hat with Le Specs X Adam Selman cat-eye shades for a look that channeled Cannes film stars of yore. vogue.com

Matching Team Patta laces round out its details.

Good news, J.Crew fans. Soon, you'll reportedly be able to buy those classic sweaters and skirts for less bank.

In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, the company's CEO confirmed that J.Crew is embarking upon a new strategy that involves slashing the prices of 300 items—and the new, more affordable items are already available for purchase.

J.Crew Chairman and CEO Mickey Drexler told the WSJ that the new push to lower prices is part of an effort to keep customers interested and turn around disappointing sales.

"We became a little too elitist in our attitude," Drexler said. "We gave a perception of being a higher-priced company than we were — in our catalog, online, and in our general presentation...Very big mistake."

Longtime J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons left the company in April, and the brand laid off 250 workers weeks later.

According to Racked, during Lyons's tenure, some shoppers complained that J.Crew's venture into a more high-fashion, high-quality space had pushed to become unreasonably high. allure.com
Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama were spotted this week in Italy as the two continued their post-White House vacations.

The couple visited the Museum of Opera, one of the oldest private museums in Italy, during a visit to Siena on Monday.

According to The Associated Press, the couple arrived in Tuscany on Friday and plans to stay for six days.

Earlier this month, the two visited Milan, Italy, where Barack Obama discussed climate change and food security at a global sustainable food summit.

The former FLOTUS sported a pink and white one-shoulder shirt and white denim capris with white sandals during a day on the town.

She also donned hoop earrings, bangles and a small, white cross-body purse. rare.us
