Cara Delevingne Takes on the Countryside in Mulberry’s Latest Campaign!

Looks like the Cara Delevingne-Mulberry love affair is still going strong!

Hot off the launch of her new handbag line and the accompany campaign in which she too stars, Cara returns for third season as the face of Mulberry, posing for the British label’s just-released Fall/Winter 2014 campaign shot by Tim Walker.  This season, the model of the moment is trading in her teacups for a pastoral adventure, hitting the Scottish Highlands in true Brit fashion: houndstooth, brogues, wellies and the occasional chunky arran knit.  As for the bags, Cara carries the new Tessie and Bayswater Buckle.  Of course the Cara Delevingne collection also makes a cameo, with Cara modelling the quilted black and camo print backpacks.

“The thing I most like about our new Mulberry campaign is the sheer Mulberry of it,” said Anne-Marie Verdin, Brand Director at Mulberry.  ”Big space, fresh air, wind in the hair, away from it all…Mulberry is a brand that is at home in town and country and we wanted to capture that feeling. When we arrived in Scotland it was pouring with rain, but once Tim arrived this golden sun appeared – he really has the magic touch!”

Meanwhile, the accessories label, which is already known for its menagerie of furry campaign stars, couldn’t resist throwing in a few cute, cuddly animals to appear alongside the model, designer, actress and singer, including several dogs belonging to the local gamekeeper and a little lamb, who rumor has it, quickly became Cara’s favorite.

American Beauty: The One Beauty Trend You Need to Embrace This Fourth of July

Believe it or not, the Fourth of July is upon us, which means a full weekend  of sun-drenched pool, beach and BBQ parties.  In the spirit of the holiday, you’re likely obsessing over which red, white and blue ensemble you’re going to wear for the firework celebrations, but let’s not forget, there’s an easier way to give your look a patriotic pick-me-up and it stars with the eyes.

Blue eye makeup: it’s a trend we’ve referenced quite a bit already this season, and for good reason!  The look, once linked solely to the image of tacky ’80s prom makeup, has since experienced a high fashion revival of sorts, popping up on the lids of a number of famous model faces both on and off the runway.  From navy eye shadows, to electric liners and cobalt mascaras, the models have tried (and perfected we might add) nearly every variation of the trend that we can think of, providing no shortage of beautiful blue eye looks to copy at home.  And now, with Independence Day just around the corner, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate occasion to finally give our kohl pencils a rest and test out any one of these Fourth of July-ready looks. Below, we’ve rounded up three of the easiest, model-approved ways to wear blue eye makeup just in time for the long holiday weekend ahead.  Score our editors’ tips and product picks after the jump!

Cara Delevingne Skipped Glastonbury to ‘Plot Her Own Singing Career’

In addition to the absence of Kate Moss, you may have noticed that Cara Delevingne was also surprisingly missing from this weekend’s Glastonbury Festival.  Like Kate though, it appears to have been for good reason.

The 21-year-old is said to have swapped the muddy Somerset fields in favor of “plotting her own singing career” with a meeting at Simon Cowell’s London offices.  But while Cowell himself might not have been on hand to dole out any words of wisdom to the aspiring performer due to a busy X Factor schedule, his long-time friend and collaborator Sinitta was apparently happy to step in.

“It is a top secret project, but it is true; I’m helping her as a mentor,” the singer told a reporter from the Daily Mail.

While the details surrounding Cara’s latest ‘secret project’ have yet to be revealed, the model has often spoke of her desire to be known more as an actress and singer than ‘just a model.’  Previously, Cara has showcased her soulful vocals on an acoustic track with British singer/songwriter Will Heard, and at just 16 years old, recorded a selection of demo songs with Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller.  Sounds like the making of true musician, no?

 

Model Behavior: Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell Are Having the Most Glamourous Vaca Ever!

Though she’s become something of a poster child for the annual Glastonbury music festival, Kate Moss was surprisingly a no show at the muddied fields this weekend instead, skipping town in favor of that other famous summer model hotspot: Ibiza!

The supermodel joined her bestie Naomi Campbell and a small group of pals— including famed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Kate’s husband Jamie Hince — in the Balearics, where they spent the weekend soaking up the sun in style.

The party reportedly kicked off on Saturday when the glamourous girls were pictured sunbathing on Cala Bassa beach in matching black bikinis.  For her part, Naomi looked incredible, donning a two-piece Dolce & Gabbana coin-print design and a crocheted sun dress, while Kate opted for a simple black bandeau style and Wayfayer shades.

After wading in the water for a bit, Kate and co. were said to have hit the cabana, where she and Naomi could be seen giggling and sipping on champagne.   Naomi also shared a stunning photo of her and Kate on Instagram while lounging in a pool with the hashtag “#SummerGaze.”

Following the quality beach time with BFF, Kate made sure to sneak in some one-on-one time with her hubby on Sunday, stepping out for a casual dinner at one of the local restaurants.  Having sported a string bikini and a printed pajama top (of her own Topshop design, of course) as her cover up for most of the day, Kate opted for a breezy ankle-length summer dress paired with a black fringe shoulder bag, black studded sandals and minimal accessories.

No doubt, Kate and Naomi are relishing having a little ‘R & R’ in Ibiza this week.  Following the launch of her latest capsule collection for Topshop in late April, Kate has since been hard at work racking up campaigns for Kerastase, Burberry fragrance and Eleven Paris.  Meanwhile, Naomi is planning to use her fashion expertise to launch her own fashion line saying, “I’ve been approached by a few brands to design a line for them. It’s something that interests me, and I’m in negotiations.”
