Big leagues: WWD reports that iconic Italian brand Schiaparelli, which counts fans in celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, has officially been given haute couture status. Only 14 other houses are members of the elite group, including Dior and Chanel.

Schiaparelli had previously been showing at couture week as a guest member. Congratulations!
