The Amber Alert News Roundup: Nordstrom Uses Disabled Models, Beyoncé Featured on '50 Shades of Grey' Trailer & Christophe Lemaire Leaves Hermès

Nordstrom proves it's an equal opportunity employer by hiring a diverse cast for its July Anniversary catalog, including three disabled models.  Jillian Mercada (photographed above) lives with muscular dystrophy and also appeared in Diesel’s Spring campaign earlier this year.  I love that the fashion industry is starting to embrace beauty outside the norm.

Christophe Lemaire has officially been voted off the Hermès island.  The storied design house recently announced it's "parting ways" with Lemaire who has acted as artistic director since 2010.  Although he has garnered critical acclaim for Hermès, Lemaire stated that it's time for him to focus on his own brand.  No successor has been named as of yet.

Socialite, fashion blogger and newlywed Olivia Palermo has been tapped for a capsule collection with shoe designer Aquazzura.  The collection, which launches this September, will feature six shoe styles in glamorous silhouettes.  Prices range from $600 to $1,625, which are meant to be relatively reasonable.

It appears Beyoncé will be featured on the soundtrack for the much anticipated film, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' which hits theaters in February 2015.  Over the weekend, Bey dropped a snippet of the official trailer via Instagram which included a sultry version of her hit, 'Crazy in Love.'  Watch the full trailer here.
