Turns out Bad Gal RiRi won’t be strutting her stuff down the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway after all. According to People, who got the exclusive, the singer has pulled out of performing at the televised event to focus on finishing her album, Anti. In her place will be Ellie Goulding, who has just debuted a new track, “Keep On Dancing,” off her forthcoming album, Delirium. Goulding will be joined onstage by The Weeknd and Selena Gomez. Adding to news surrounding the annual lingerie event is the addition of Kendall Jenner to the model roster.

Sacai’s successful collaboration with Nike continues, with the Fall ‘15 collection hitting stores December 10. “I want everyone to touch, feel, and enjoy the collection,” said Sacai founder/designer Chitose Abe.

Last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner saw plenty of celebrities, a speech from Riccardo Tisci, and three first place award winners—a first for the event. Aurora James of Brother Vellies, Rio Uribe of Gypsy Sport, and Jonathan Simkhai received a grant of $300,000 each to further build their brands.
