TAG Heuer Taps Cara Delevingne for Latest Campaign

TAG Heuer is switching up its swag for this season’s campaign, tapping a professional model (as opposed to an athlete or celebrity) to star in its ads. The buzzy Cara Delevingne has been chosen as the watch brand’s new ambassador.

For the campaign, TAG Heuer went with photos of the model you may have already seen: The first is her at The Great Gatsby premiere during Cannes in 2013, the other is an image of Cara making one of her signature goofy faces, showing off the lion tattoo on her index finger, while urging the TAG Heuer customer #DontCrackUnderPressure. TAG Heuer is hoping Cara’s social media reach and popularity with the kids opens the brand up to a younger generation of shoppers. And it looks like the model is already hard at work promoting her new gig on Instagram.  (more…)

She loved gallivanting around in The Hills of LA and The City of New York, but it looks like Whitney Port could be relocating to Australia for good.

In an interview with OK! magazine, her fiancé, producer Tim Rosenman, revealed that the move down under is more than likely going to happen. “We’ll probably move to Australia,” he explained to OK! “Last time we left, we spoke about it because we loved it so much.”

It’s definitely a possibility. Whitney is signed to Aussie management team Chadwick models, she became engaged to Tim in Sydney, and because, well, who says no to Australia?

We’ll gladly make room for Whitney and Tim, and all their little Port-Rosenman offspring on our turf. Maybe a new MTV reality show could be on the cards. The Sand? The Outback? The Spit?! Doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?

To read the entire story, pick up OK! this week.

Olivier Rousteing Explains His Obsession with Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and her famous family members have monopolized quite a chunk of the fashion world in recent years, a fact that some folks aren’t particularly thrilled about. The reality star has appeared on the cover of Vogue‘s U.S. and now Australian publications, and will appear in a 30-plus page spread for LOVE magazine decked out in Prada. But Kim’s presence in the industry isn’t a bother to Olivier Rousteing, who cast her and husband Kanye West to front Balmain’s spring menswear campaign

At 28, Rousteing is noted for being extremely social media savvy, hip and current. And while some may poo-poo his relationship with Kim, the designer thinks she’s all that. “She is insanely beautiful, smart, confident, a business woman,” he told The Guardian, noting that the reality star is actually Balmain’s ideal customer. “I love also that she is not a typical American. She has Armenian origins, she is with Kanye, who is black, and she has a mixed-race daughter. For me, that is how modern couples are.”

So, there you have it: The allure of Kim Kardashian, according to one young Frenchman.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Sister Is Just a Regular Grandma Living in Connecticut

We all know it’s friggin’ great being in Karl Lagerfeld’s crew, but if you’re a member of his actual family, you’re watching the designer live out his fabulous life from the sidelines, brimming with pride. Or at least you are if you’re Christiane Johnson, Lagerfeld’s older sister who lives in Portland, Connecticut.

In a recent The New York Times article outlining the life of Brad Kroenig, a member of Lagerfeld’s crew, the designer mentions that his entourage is like his family since he has none. He briefly mentions his sister, but adds that she and her ilk never send him Christmas cards.

Well, if there is any bad blood between the designer and his sister, she certainly doesn’t know it. The Daily Mail caught up with the 83-year-old big sis of the fashion mogul, who says she is very proud of her brother and has clippings of his accomplishments in her home. Johnson and Lagerfeld have not seen each other since the 70s. She says they started drifting after he became a hit in Paris. One of the last times she saw him, Lagerfeld came in a limo to visit her in Portland. “That was the time when limousines were a bit special. The whole town saw a limousine come through – that was really something. I think he had his glasses on.” But of course he did.

Johnson says she hasn’t seen her brother over the years because of his busy schedule and how difficult it is to coordinate spending time together. They do occasionally write each other and she says that she would welcome Lagerfeld with open arms if he came to visit her in Connecticut again.

We know Lagerfeld’s a busy guy, but we have a hard time imagining him being too busy to not see his flesh and blood for over 40 years. That’s a really long time. And considering how accommodating Mr. Lagerfeld is with those he is not related to, it seems a little hard to believe he couldn’t invite his sister, her children or any of his six grand nieces and nephews at least to a Chanel fashion show. But who knows? Family stuff is complicated.

Connecticut isn’t that far from New York City — maybe he’ll have the family come around to see the Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art show in March…or maybe not.
