Ever want to walk a mile in Binx Walton‘s shoes? Now you can. Italian sneaker brand Superga has tapped the 19-year-old model as the face of its Spring 2015 ads and as a collaborator for Fall 2015. Following in the footsteps of previous collaborators like Rita Ora, Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse, Binx designed a limited-edition range of sporty trainers that are slated to hit stores later this year.

“I have always wanted to explore other aspects of the industry,” Binx said in an official statement. “And I’m so lucky to have such an amazing brand supporting me on not just the model side, but also the creative, directing, and designing. Which is such a dream come true for me!” (more…)

Catherine McNeil Nabs Her Second Vogue Cover for April (Forum Buzz)

She’s already on the cover of Vogue Mexico this month and now, Catherine McNeil takes to the cover of Vogue Turkey. The Aussie beauty poses on an inflatable chair, captured by photographer David Slijper for the April cover image. The shot is quite a departure from Mexican Vogue‘s cover, which forum members thought resembled a wax figure. Catherine looks effortless with her dark tresses slicked back, sporting a minimal amount of makeup. After managing to surpass our expectations last month for its fifth anniversary, does Vogue Turkey continue its winning streak?

Not quite, it seems. “A rather strong shot ruined by an awful layout. I thought the Anniversary issue showed improvement but I guess it’s still the same,” noted MON, failing to hit us off on a high note.

Forum member kokobombon wasn’t feeling it, either. “I don’t like this, the color scheme is not appealing imo. Poor Catherine, two April covers and both of them are not good,” she exclaimed.

Also not sold was narcyza, who wasn’t afraid to comment, “Everything is wrong here: makeup, styling and awful colors.” Oh, dear.

“Beautiful photo but too much text. Why? Especially that white font, really horrible. But still I like it,” added Housseyin.

Changing the mood dramatically with a totally different view was justaguy. “Always happy to see Cat and she looks great here!!” he enthused.

Forum member |PerfectTonight| shared the same positive attitude. “I strongly support creative vision of Vogue Turkey. Always delivering strong covers.”

Could we have seen something more compelling? Add your own two cents inside the thread here.

Choupette Lagerfeld Made 3 Million Euros Last Year

If the thought of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner buying a 2.7 million dollar Calabasas pad made you feel bad about your less-than-glamourous life, prepare to feel even worse, because newsflash: a cat is making more money than you. Yep, Karl Lagerfeld’s blue-eyed Siamese cat Choupette made a killing last year. Lagerfeld talked to The Cut about Choupette’s moneymaking savvy:

“She did two jobs and made 3 million euros last year,” he said. “One was for cars in Germany and the other was for a Japanese beauty product. I don’t allow her to do foodstuffs and things like this. She’s too sophisticated for that.” Compare those 3 million euros to some of the world’s highest paid models like Joan Smalls, Erin Wasson, Lindsey Wixson, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton and Daria Werbowy, who certainly didn’t make their 3 million dollars last year by booking two gigs. 

The gravy train for Mlle Choupette, whose life and times have been documented in a book, continues this month as she’s snagged a cover of Lucky magazine’s special edition April Fools’ Day issue.

Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams Performed at Chanel’s NYC Métiers d’Art Show

Acting, modeling, drumming, singing – Cara Delevingne has proved she’s much more than just a triple threat and at yesterday’s reprise of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Salzburg show in New York City, she and Pharrell Williams reminded us of that. If you remember, the pair appeared in Chanel’s short film Reincarnation, which (loosely) told the story of how Coco Chanel got inspired to create the famous little black jacket. 

Williams and Delevingne recorded a duet for the short, “CC the World,” and at yesterday’s festivities, treated the crowd to a live rendition of the tune. Cara’s voice has an old school tone with a dash of hipster flair, and she belted out a few notes alongside Pharrell, who took the stage in a bellhop costume. He seems to have taken quite a liking to that style lately.

Did Cara kill it? You be the judge!

Royal Ascot Releases Outdated Dress Code for Women

For most British women, a day out at the races is synonymous with a show-stopping outfit that has to include a hat, as the event becomes more of a fashion parade than an opportunity to watch live horse racing.

Many put a lot of thought into their race day outfits, especially for the most luxurious of events like Ladies Day at Royal Ascot, whilst bearing in mind the event’s strict dress code. We expect the usual — ladies must wear a dress and there’s the obligatory suit for the men — but in recent years as the event attracts a wider audience, it seems the dress code is becoming even more stringent in hopes of maintaining the event’s prestigious appeal. (Or shall we say, as an excuse to kick out the riffraff!)

For all of you ladies who are currently planning your outfits for the next Royal Ascot (scheduled for June), the event just released a special video detailing its most recent dress code. Some antiquated guidelines to keep in mind include “strapless or sheer strap dresses and tops are not permitted” and “a hat, headpiece or fascinator should be worn at all times.” No shoulders at the races? How far we have come. 

The rules seem more fit for Downton Abbey than modern society, but if you break them, rest assured that you won’t be getting into the event, no matter who you are. So, if you’re thinking of going on a strap-free protest, don’t expect to make it past the gates.

As New Yorkers, we are quite familiar with rodents, particularly the stylish type. Just ask any Vogue staffer allegedly battling an onslaught of fashionably-inclined rats running through the hallowed halls of the magazine. But as the Vogue rats wait to be recognized for their impeccable taste, another rodent is to be showered with praise and accolades come London Fashion Week.

We’re talking, of course, about Minnie Mouse, who is arguably the world’s most stylish rodent. She will be getting her due shine come September with a BFC-sponsored exhibit about the cartoon mouse’s sartorial proclivities, aptly called Minnie Style. Georgia May Jagger, who appeared on the cover of Love‘s Fall 2013 issue in a set of Minnie Mouse ears, will curate and promote the show. 

In addition, Jagger will appear in  a Minnie Mouse-themed spread in the next issue of Dazed magazine, which will be available starting April 9. Catch the Minnie Style exhibit from September 18 to 22.
