To all the fashion lovers out there looking for a start in the industry: WE NEED YOU. TheFashionSpot is on the hunt for some brilliant young talents to join our team this summer and help us create some amazing content. We are looking for someone to fill an Editorial Intern position and a Photo Editorial position for college credit. 

Our ideal interns will be bright, fast on their feet, conscientious, enthusiastic and have a deep knowledge of fashion. And by deep knowledge of fashion, we mean, you must be a huge fashion nerd. So if you live and die by Fern Mallis’ 92nd Street Y talks or can tell us who the current creative director of Emilio Pucci is (and can name his other fashion label) without having to use Google, we want you. Also, if you’re applying for the Photo Editorial position, you’ve got to be a whiz with Adobe Creative Suite.

You must be currently enrolled in college and be able to receive academic credit. And be prepared to work, not get our coffee. (We make our own!) You will be writing, copy editing, learning the ins and outs of digital editorial and creating graphics for the site, so this internship is very hands-on. For the Editorial position, we’re looking for majors in journalism, fashion design, fashion history, writing and English with fabulous writing skills. For Photo: arts, photography, and/or design, as well as someone with a key eye for graphic design.  You should be able to commit to 3-4 days a week. Liking dogs helps because our office mascot likes to come by.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to join our team, send your resumé and cover letter to internships@evolvemediallc.com

And don’t worry – it’s not going to be like the Devil Wears Prada… although dang, Miranda Priestly knows how to throw some serious shade.

We’re Looking for Interns!

You No Longer Have to Be Hot to Work at Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie and Fitch is undergoing a serious rebranding. It has already turned up the lights in its stores, eased up on the overpowering in-store cologne smell, pledged to add larger size options and will also start making clothes in black – a color forbidden under the sacred “look policy” while former CEO Mike Jeffries was in power. These are all welcome changes but it looks like A&F is about to make one very major shift in store branding, and while we’re all for the retailer’s long-overdue makeover, we can’t help but be a little sad to see this one tenet of the company go.

According to Business of Fashion, Abercrombie has decided to do away with its hot salespeople rule, meaning you no longer have to be really, really ridiculously good looking to get hired to sell its overpriced wares. So yes, the only reason why you would ever set foot in an Abercrombie store – to ogle hot shirtless guys with ripped abs or attractive ever-smiling women – will soon be no more. 

The company is getting rid of its strict look policy, which means the rules of acceptable employee attire and grooming will finally be relaxed. Employees will have a bit more freedom now – eyeliner will be allowed and men will be permitted to wear mustaches, amongst other reforms.

‘Paper Towns’ Author Says Cara Delevingne Is a Great Actress

Cara Delevingne CinemaCon Red Carpet

Cara Delevingne is set to star in the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns, and while we weren’t too sure about her American accent in the trailer, we have word from Green himself that Cara is actually really good in the film. “Cara is an amazing actress,” he told Page Six, making it clear that even though Cara is from the modeling world, she’s not what you typically think of when you imagine a model/actress. The girl’s got some substance. “Legitimately. All of the constructions we have of supermodels are deconstructed by Cara in the course of the film,” he gushed.

And it’s not just Green who thinks Cara D’s got some serious acting skills. Ms. Delevingne also picked up a CinemaCon award with her Paper Towns co-star Nat Wolff for Rising Stars of 2015. 

Paper Towns  is due to hit theaters July 24. Cara also has a few other roles lined up, including a part as a mermaid in the forthcoming Pan movie and a role in Suicide Squad as Enchantress.

Karl Lagerfeld Is Super Proud of His Apple Watch

Karl Lagerfeld is pretty much the fashion world’s collective cool uncle (or, for some of us, great-uncle), who always seems to have better stuff than you. Already, Kaiser Karl is the proud owner of a supremely exclusive Apple Watch, a version boasting a gold link chain that only he and Beyoncé own. And much like your hip uncle, Lagerfeld will not let you forget what a tech-savvy VIP he is. At the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference, Lagerfeld, of course, had to remind everyone of the exclusivity of his new toy. “How digital am I?” he boasted. “I have the first [Apple Watch] with Beyoncé.” Making us all insanely jealous that right now he has more in common with Beyoncé than we do. 

In addition to his snazzy new wearable, Lagerfeld also touched on his opinion of the anti-fur set. Judging by Fendi’s fur-heavy designs and forthcoming fur-focused couture show, Uncle Karl is obviously very, very into his pelts. And you’d better not say a word against ‘em. “I am against dialogue against furs. Do those people eat meat?” he wondered. “To be against it is easy. But who will pay for the unemployment of people losing their jobs if you don’t have to propose anything else? In some countries, hunting is the only means of survival.”

Won’t these fur activists think of the hunters? Or better yet, all the freezing rich people in places like Aspen who might not have a colored Fendi fur jacket to cozy up in while they’re on vacation? It’s just heartless.
