Cara Delevingne Thought She Wouldn’t Get That Role in ‘Paper Towns’

Budding actress Cara Delevingne has a lot to be confident about in her burgeoning acting career. She will appear in next year’s summer blockbuster Suicide Squad alongside stars like Jared Leto and Will Smith, she has a role in the forthcoming Pan movie and she just snagged a part in 2017’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. But even though Delevingne is achieving early success in Hollywood, she does get a little jittery about her acting career. After all, she is one of the world’s most in-demand models and the stigma of a model-turned-actress is still a thing. 

Delevingne admitted that she was quite nervous to read for her role in Paper Towns and credits her co-star Nat Wolff with helping her score the big gig. “The reason I actually got the role was probably because of Nat Wolff. He’s honestly the best actor I’ve ever worked with,” she told Teen Vogue. “I didn’t think I was going to get it. I was so scared, and he gave me the ability to do it. He gave me everything! Because when you have someone else who is so real and so amazing and they have truth in their eyes…he was crying so how could I not cry? And then, when we did the first table read, we all kind of looked at each other and were like, ‘This is going to be so great.'”

We’re juiced to see Cara in her first major lead role and her onscreen chemistry with Wolff. July 24 –when the film officially hits theaters – can’t come soon enough.

Confirmed: Steven Meisel Out at Vogue Italia (Forum Buzz)

Our fears became reality yesterday as Vogue Italia‘s highly-anticipated June installment surfaced on our forums, which wasn’t photographed by Steven Meisel. Over the past week,  our forums have been speculating that the legendary photographer and longtime Vogue Italia collaborator did not shoot the June edition due to alleged creative differences. Franca Sozzani opted for a different route and delivered four unique covers captured by four different photographers for ‘The China Issue’ of the Italian title. Mario Sorrenti, Craig McDean, Steven Klein and Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott each shot a cover featuring a handful of Chinese beauties.

Forum members were as fast as lightning to generate discussion. “So disappointed, such a bad year for VI so far,” shared MDNA.

“It feels extremely weird that Meisel is no longer there and also sort of anti-climactic. It would be incredible if we got a final all Meisel issue featuring his favorite models. I don’t know, I just feel kinda sad if the rumours of his leaving are actually true and would hate to see Vogue Italia become just another edition of Vogue by losing its edge. However, as I understand it, nothing has been said officially so I’m still holding out hope,” added an optimistic Nepenthes.

KissMiss wasn’t impressed either, writing, “I am sorry but this looks a mess to me.”

Also left underwhelmed was blueorchid: “They all look like supplements. Yikes.”

“They all look like supplements. Geez. I’d prefer a simple portrait by Meisel over this try-hard multiple covers,” agreed quangthinh.

Feeling nostalgic was Miss Dalloway. “Have to say I secretly hoped the rumors were not true, and that he shot at least one of the covers. Makes me sad because I grew up, and came to love fashion through Meisel. No one can replace this combination for me. It marks a significant change for VI, and the fashion industry IMO.”

Kate Spade is putting her best foot forward for her grand return to the fashion world. The designer will release a line of accessories set to hit shelves in time for the holidays. Spade, who left her eponymous brand in 2007, says she has spent the last few years focusing on family. Her new accessories collection will have plenty of shoes and handbags, which is what she does best. 

According to WWD, retailers will be looking at the yet-to-be-named collection this week and next, though there is no word on when the rest of us will get to see it. Considering it’s for holiday, we’re expecting to see a little sparkle in the offering, perhaps a generous helping of glitter even. 

Kate Spade the brand is currently under the design direction of Deborah Lloyd, who took the position after the label was sold to Liz Claiborne. We have certainly missed seeing Spade’s creations and are excited to see what she has conceived for her great return to fashion.

Good Luck Getting the Kendall + Kylie Topshop Collection Online

Kendall Kylie Topshop launch

Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s Topshop collection is already proving to be a huge success. It just launched yesterday and is already nearly sold out. Today, the retailer’s main page warns shoppers that they can “shop the last few pieces” online, most of which are already out of stock anyway. Those few pieces that are available, like an off-the-shoulder peasant blouse, only have a few sizes left, so if you were trying to get your hands on something from the range without moving from your couch, you might want to check out the Topshop website now.

The collection is still available at Topshop locations, which the retailer lists on a dedicated webpage. Yesterday, Kendall and Kylie hit Topshop’s L.A. location at The Grove to help promote the line – not that it needs any more publicity. But while you’re fighting with other customers over the last few pieces from the Kendall + Kylie collection, rest assured that the Jenner sisters also duke it out over items in their wardrobes, so you are not alone. As Kendall Jenner told Topshop: “It’s much easier for me to steal from Kylie now because I live in my own house so it’s all locked up and I never let her in if I’m not there. But Kylie’s clothes are all at my mom’s house so I can freely walk in at anytime and take whatever I see!”

The Jenner sisters: they’re just like us – save for the millions of dollars, endorsements, fame, celebrity pals and a successful Topshop range.
