Cara Delevingne's Hollywood dreams are quickly coming true. Since she sprung onto the scene, the model has been very open about her silver screen aspirations. She's already had her share of acting gigs, appearing in the 2012 flick Anna Karenina. According to iMDb, she's got three more movies coming up, Kids in Love, The Face of an Angel and Tulip Fever, the latter of which was just recently announced. 

Today we learned from Deadline Hollywood that the buzzy model has been cast in Pan, an Peter Pan origin story. Delevingne will appear alongside Rooney Mara (Tiger Lilly), Hugh Jackman (Blackbeard), Amanda Seyfried (Mary), Levi Miller (Peter Pan) and Garrett Hedlund (Hook). 

It's not a major role, but anything's better than that Fendi fashion film she did last year.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is Coming to London!

After all the Facebook pleas, petitions and cries from those who couldn’t make it to the glorious exhibition at the Met Gallery in New York, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is FINALLY coming to London! What's even more exciting is that the tickets went on sale today.

The exhibition will be housed at the Victoria and Albert museum, opening March 14, 2015 and running until June 19.

Judging by the success of the exhibition in its first home at the Met, it will be worth buying up your ticket fast to see Lee McQueen’s masterpieces displayed in his home town. When it opened in New York in 2011, the original run was extended by a week and the show was the eighth most popular show in the Met's history with 661,509 visitors.

The director of the V&A, Martin Roth, was pleased to break the news yesterday. "I am thrilled to announce that the V&A will bring this wonderful exhibition to London to celebrate the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times. Lee Alexander McQueen was brought up in London, studied here and based his globally successful McQueen fashion brand here–by staging the exhibition at the V&A it feels like we are bringing his work home."

The exhibition tells the story of McQueen's incredible work, documenting everything from the 1992 MA graduate show that was famously bought up in its entirety by Isabella Blow, to his final collection for Fall 2010 which was unfinished after his tragic death on February 11, 2010. Not often does the world truly recognise the talent of a fashion designer, but McQueen never failed to amaze and inspire. Having this incredible body of work on show in London will no doubt reinvigorate the country's admiration for the humble visionary.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is supported by American Express in partnership with Swarovski. Entry is £16 with concessions available.

The Olsen Twins Play “Mary-Kate or Ashley?” On The Ellen Show

It feels like forever since we've seen the Olsen Twins make a TV appearance. Not that we blame them. The pint-sized duo have a lot on their plate managing two successful high-end brands, The Row and Elizabeth and James. And it doesn't end there—Mary-Kate's got her wedding to Olivier Sarkozy to plan, and Ashley is busy fulfilling her duties on the board of directors for the CFDA. But the pair always have time to promote their labels! They appeared today on the Ellen DeGeneres show to chat about their new fragrances from Elizabeth and James, Nirvana Black and Nirvana White. 

Of course, no Ellen interview would be complete without its share of shenanigans. The TV host played a little game, "Mary-Kate or Ashley?" in which DeGeneres read off a series of questions, and the twins raise paddles to indicate which twin best fit the question. Here's what we found out about the Olsens:

  • Mary-Kate is the better dancer
  • Neither knows who got kissed first
  • Ashley is the funnier twin
  • They're both terrible singers

Watch the whole thing for yourself above.

Obakki, H&M and Value Village Expected to Dominate Vancouver’s Eco Fashion Week

After this week’s Earth Day, the fashion world is getting their eco-conscious on, particularly with news of Vancouver’s Eco Fashion Week. Yep, a whole week of being good and green will be set aside for the week's eighth edition, which from what I’m gathering so far, is promised to be the biggest yet.

On the docket for this year’s event is cultural maven Obakki, who will be showing its latest spring-summer 2014 collection of sustainable pieces (silk scooped and sexy pencil dresses) that will go on sale at Holt Renfrew as part of the H Project. What’s that you ask? H Project is a shop of extraordinary products curated by Alexandra Weston, Director of Brand Strategy, who will also be in Vancouver for the event. A portion of the night’s proceeds will go to The Obakki Foundation, Obakki's philanthropic counterpart, which focuses on providing clean water and education in Africa. Also to be featured at Vancouver’s Eco Fashion Week will be H&M, the mega-retailer that’s been working hard to turn a corner with regard to its reputation for disposable fashion. The effort can be seen in the store’s trade-in clothing scheme, for which H&M’s senior sustainability specialist, Pierre Börjesson, will be in Vancouver to give a keynote speech on the Garment Collecting Initiative.

Finally, the trend-focused Value Village Thrift Chic Challenge will also be returning for a fifth year. The fan-favourite event will give three stylists a $500 allowance to create ten runway-worthy outfits using only gently-used clothing from Value Village. There’s also another contest, entitled the 68 Pound Challenge, in which Young Oak designer Tammy Joe will be tasked with creating a brand new fashion-forward collection from 68 pounds of reworked clothing from Value Village. 68 pounds here represents the amount of clothing and textiles the average North American throws away each year!

The three-day event will be at SFU Woodward’s, the plush Fairmont Waterfront, and Holt Renfrew, from April 27 to 29. Now go prove Kermit wrong and show how easy it is being green…

"Oh gosh…we barely recognize her, so much retouching on her face, it looks very plastic and fake. And the pose doesn't help," wrote Bertrando3.

Visualoptimism also seemed to notice some retouching: "I like the cover but the nose is so retouched!"

As did Nymphaea: "Too much photoshop, Adriana isn't Adriana anymore," but went on to write, "Love the soft palette."

"Gorgeous cover. Adriana looks amazing! Would prefer a different background color but it's still a stunning cover," commented Nepenthes.

Miss Dalloway was also in favor of the cover: "Gorgeous, I wish there was less text, but I like it anyway."

Be sure to comment on the cover and await the issue's contents here.
