Peep Cara Delevingne’s Serious Acting Chops in This Clip of ‘Timeless’

Cara Delevingne has made it pretty clear that twirling in expensive dresses isn't all she wants to do with her life. The 21-year-old British model has Hollywood dreams and has been gradually filling her schedule with acting gigs. She was most recently cast in the upcoming Pan movie and is working on a few other projects, all of which we are curious to see. But before we're able to catch her on the silver screen, Delevingne makes her debut as a ~serious~ actress in the upcoming made-for-TV drama Timeless, about the relationship between a WWII widow and her great-granddaughter. 

A clip of the flick has been released via Sky Arts and… it's not that bad! We'll admit we were a little worried to see more of Delevingne's acting after seeing her…interesting performance in Karl Lagerfeld's Fendi fashion film. In this film, Delevingne plays the great-granddaughter opposite Sylvia Syms, and she actually does a really good job alongside the old pro.

Watch the clip above, and let us know what you think of Cara's acting debut!

Ford Models is Searching for Fresh Faces to Walk for Fendi and Chanel

It's every model's dream to walk for fashion houses like Chanel and Fendi, and Ford Models is giving one young hopeful a chance to take a turn down both catwalks. The modeling agency is holding a contest, #walkwithkarl, in which one girl will be chosen to mosey down the runway for both of the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed brands. The winner will also shoot a spread for V magazine (lensed by the Kaiser himself) and snag a contract with Ford.

As with most modeling competitions, it's hard to tell whether or not the winner will actually have a future in fashion. America's Next Top Model contestants in general haven't had much luck breaking into the world of high fashion (except maybe Fatima Siad, who's walked for Hermès and was featured in Hervé Léger's Spring 2012 campaign). Still, there are still plenty of other models who have gone on to successful careers thanks to these contests. Sports Illustrated model and The Face co-host Anne V. got her start by winning a modeling competition with IMG.

The fashion world is fickle. One minute, designers fawn over you, and the next, they throw you away like last season's Birkenstocks. Hopefully, the girl who wins will enjoy a degree of longevity in this tough-as-nails industry.

To enter the contest, visit Scouting.fordmodels.com/V. The contest ends September 1.

Scott Eastwood and Edie Campbell Land Hugo Boss Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Hugo Boss' latest advertising campaign has been released. Lensed by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, the ads star model Edie Campbell and actor Scott Eastwood (yes, son of Hollywood legend Clint!). Photographed in a studio against a classic dark grey background, this is designer Jason Wu's first campaign for the German fashion house. The womenswear ads are printed in color whilst the menswear campaign is black and white.

Forum members aren't so certain about the campaign, however. "Love the cast but this is a bit boring. Clothes look great though," commented anlabe32.

"Not enough oomph but overall an okay campaign," shared TeeVanity.

Justaguy shared the majority sentiment: "Good casting and perfect Fall/Winter feel, but it feels a bit lackluster. It's almost like Scott's shots needed more movement to mirror Edie or something."

"This campaign is not extraordinary, but still it's okay. I love Edie and I think they wanted to try something new with her and the jumping motion. It doesn't really fit the image I had of Hugo Boss. However I love the styling!" wrote Emmaneulle.

Diane Kruger ‘Is So Beautiful’ on Vogue Germany’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

Like a breath of fresh air, Diane Kruger shows us some emotion on the cover of Vogue Germany. Camilla Akrans photographed the actress wearing a sequined top and skirt from Hugo Boss, for the July 2014 cover. Franco Gobbi gave Kruger a slicked back hairstyle, and minimal makeup was applied by Wendy Rowe using Chanel cosmetics. I think the cover shot is very refreshing and members of theFashionSpot forums agree..

"I quite like it. She looks gorgeous and the expression and layout are fun imo," writes kokobombon.

Emmanuelle was impressed: "Nice! Diane Kruger is so beautiful. I like the way they played with the letters of Vogue, that looks cool. I love the sorbet colors. When I look at the pic without text, I'm a bit disturbed by the placement of her legs, but it's still great."

TeeVanity also showed enthusiasm and wrote, "Yeah, I like it too. Diane is cute, chic and fun cover."

Although it wasn't all smooth sailing on the forums. "I don't like Diane, I think she is a bit too overexposed lately for no particular reason. Well, she's always been. The cover itself is alright. A bit tacky," commented la veronika.

Kanna expected more: "To me, Diane is boring all the time. The cover is horrible, not that I don't like the figure, but the layout is awful. I expected more when I saw Åkrans in the title."

‘Black Widow’ Patrizia Reggiani Wants a Job at Gucci

Gucci runway model

Entitlement is a curious thing. It deludes even the most undeserving into thinking they're owed something, no matter what they did or who they are. Such is the case for Patrizia Reggiani, AKA the Black Widow, who is being released from her 16-year prison sentence for ordering a 1995 hit on her late husband, Maurizio Gucci, heir to the Gucci fortune. Reggiani was imprisoned back in 1998 and now that she's soon to be a free woman, she thinks that the good people at Gucci should give her a job. Wait, what?

For the past three years, Reggiani's been allowed one day a week on the outside, to work in a Milan jewelry store. But her professional goals seem to extend beyond the shopgirl life. “I dream of returning to Gucci. I still feel like a Gucci–in fact, the most Gucci of all,” she told the La Repubblica. “I have the qualifications–for years I went shopping around the world. I came from the world of jewels and it is to that world that I want to return.” Hmm… probably should have thought about that before you paid a hit man to whack your ex-husband.

We're guessing Gucci has no plans to add her to its staff–you know, bad blood and all. Still, Reggiani thinks they should give her a chance, since she didn't *really* mean for her ex-husband to be murdered and totally didn't order that hit. “It’s true that speaking with certain people, I said, in a rash outburst, 'I wish Maurizio would die,’ she clarified, "But I never imagined that the scenario would come true. Nor did I want it to. I never ordered the murder.” Sure. You just ordered the guy to fire a few warning shots in the late Maurizio Gucci's direction. riight
