Thought Kendall Jenner's modeling career was going to be a Fashion Week fluke? In recent months with gigs for Vogue titles and even a Givenchy campaign, it's clear that the industry's crush on Jenner isn't about to wane anytime soon. The reality star-cum-It-model has been tapped to cover the latest issue of Love magazine, solidifying our suspicions that Katie Grand might be a teensy bit obsessed with the young Jenner. Grand is responsible for casting her in the Marc Jacobs and Giles shows, and she even let Kendall take the reigns over the Love Instagram account for a week earlier this year. This time around, she's featuring Jenner front-and-center on the celebrated glossy.
The issue appears to have an all-American theme, shot by David Sims. Below the star-spangled title peers Jenner, with wisps of wet hair sticking to her face underneath her mouse-ear rain bonnet.
Proud mama Kris Jenner Instagrammed a shot of the cover, which she refers to as an "ad" in the caption: "Congrats @kendalljenner on your Ad for @thelovemagazine @kegrand #davidsims #GORGEOUS." Kendall also used the same wording on her own Instagram profile.
We still think they mean cover, but if this is only an ad, then there's almost certainly more KJ for Love to come.
Prepare to salivate over French Elle's latest cover featuring Lara Stone, now available at select newsstands. The Dutch beauty, photographed by Hans Feurer and styled by Chloé Dugast, wears a pink polo shirt from Lacoste for the Brigitte Bardot-inspired cover shoot. The makeup look comes from Charlotte Winner whilst Stone's hair was cared for by Stéphane Lancien, both for L'Oréal Paris, for which Lara became a brand ambassador back in 2013.
Members of theFashionSpot forums are very impressed with the cover. "WOW, that is such a great cover/spread of Lara, great to see such minimal layout from ELLE France," comments Miss Dalloway.
"Lara looks fantastic on this cover," enthused GlamorousBoy.
Mikel was also head over heels and simply wrote: "I need this!!!!"
Forum member FrenchDelicacy has provided the Elle – Wordwide thread with a snap of the subscriber's cover which features an unusual artistic approach. You can check that out alongside Lara's accompanying cover story inside the thread here.
She might have dozed off during her Vogue interview, but Cara Delevingne was wide awake for pillow talk with The Telegraph, who got in bed with the model to discuss her new Mulberry handbag, acting career, love life and more. Of course, interviewer Byrony Gordon touched on Cara's now-defunct romance with Michelle Rodriguez, whose relatively short fling was closely followed by the media–not that they had to try very hard. The couple was very fond of showing each other a lot of PDA as cameras were flashing.
Though it isn't truly any of our business, it's safe to say that the world is at least slightly curious as to what the gorgeous Delevingne prefers in a lover. And Cara was only happy to dish about her relationship with Rodriguez to the daily:
For now, though, Delevingne says she's lately felt more comfortable around women: "I don't meet men now who just want to be my friend. It doesn't really happen that much. They're just shallow like that," she says. "Unless it's one of my girlfriend's boyfriends, most guys are not like, 'Oh, we should just be mates.' I think it's harder to become friends with guys, because guys just want to have sex with you."

Set to be hailed as theFashionSpot's campaign queen of the season, Gisele Bundchen has landed yet another ad campaign. Back in February, Alexander Wang asked Bundchen to walk his third runway show for Balenciaga during Paris Fashion Week, so it's no wonder she was chosen for the French fashion house's Fall 2014 campaign. Lensed by Steven Klein, we see the Brazilian chameleon sport a shaved head whilst striking a pose surrounded by cracked mirrors.
Our forums members are loving Wang's choice this season. "Gisele overload and I ain't complaining, AMAZING!" commented Riseup.
TheoG shared the same sentiments: "I like what I see here, very dark and masculine (mostly because of hair) but the direction of this is cool, leaves me interested to see the rest."
"Damn this looks wicked cool," wrote Elfinkova, who even went on to say, "I'm going to call it first and say this is going to be the best campaign this season."
Forum member littlekiki thinks we're seeing too much of Gisele: "Too much Gisele. I like the campaign though so I shouldn't complain," she wrote.
I'm surprised there's relatively no mention of Gisele's missing golden tresses! She's all about her hair and it's the first thing I look at whenever there's a new image circulating. Although it's surprising how much she doesn't need it with her gorgeous bone structure.

Zac Posen's a busy guy. He sits at the helm of his Zac Posen, Zac Zac Posen and Z-Spoke labels, is serving another judging stint on Project Runway and now, the designer's added another gig to his growing list of responsibilities: Brooks Brothers has tapped the designer to serve as creative director over its women's collection.
Seven years ago, Brooks Bros. hired Thom Browne to help create more fashionable menswear options, which seems to have done well for the brand. But now, CEO Claudio Del Vecchio is looking to beef up its women's range, which makes up about 20 percent of sales annually.
While Posen won't necessarily be designing for the retailer, he will be advising on product development and presentation. Brooks Brothers already functions with a team of its own designers, so Posen will be tasked to lead them into creating more fashion-forward collections for women. "This is our main women's collection, and if I didn't think he could deliver, I wouldn't risk it," Del Vecchio told WWD. "It's not for PR, but he's a celebrity and I fully expect to get plenty of coverage and create traffic. But this is a business decision."
Don't get too excited about Brooks Brothers' newest appointment just yet. Posen's first for the retailer won't be out until Spring 2016, so we've got a whole year to wait before we actually see any product. Still, it will be interesting to see where Posen leads the company and if his direction will give its women's line the makeover it needs.
