Cara Delevingne and Kim Kardashian Are Working on a “Secret Project”

Cara Delevingne has a “secret.”

The 22-year-old supermodel caught our attention today after popping up in a sultry photo of herself posing side-by-side with Kim Kardashian, in which the two appear soaking wet with their hair matted to their faces and wearing what appears to be swimsuits.  The snapshot first appeared on Love magazine editor-in-chief Katie Grand’s Instagram bearing the caption: ”Fun day out with @caradelevingne @kimkardashian @thelovemagazine.”  Kardashian also posted the photo, captioning it simply, “Secret project.”

So what does this all mean? Well, if you ask us, it sounds like the model and fashion star are collaborating with Grand on a shoot for her magazine— what exactly that shoot will entail remains to be seen, but we’re excited to see the results!

Cara Delevingne and Gisele Bundchen Lead Chanel’s Feminist Street Rally

Always one to tap into the cultural zeitgeist, Karl Lagerfeld drew inspiration from newspaper headlines this season as he transformed Chanel’s spring/summer ’15 show into a feminist demonstration of epic proportions.  With Chanel mega-phones and signs scribbled with phrases like, “Make Fashion Not War,” “Ladies First,” “Be Your Own Stylist” and “He For She,” Karl’s band of model protestors led  the march down “Boulevard Chanel,” closing the show on a political note.

Of course, that’s not to say that there weren’t plenty of fashion-related messages (eg. “Tweed is Better Than Tweet”) added into the mix.  According to Lagerfeld, the collection was about clothes for life, and thus, there was not a red carpet gown in sight.  Rather, the designer gave us 70s-inspired, pin- striped city shorts worn with white shirts with pretty scalloped collars, long heavy coats layered over contrasting prints, a series of suede two-pieces in dark green and soft pink and short, youthful gowns embroidered with enamelled flowers and what looked like haute brickwork.  Gisele Bündchen made a surprise appearance in a tan striped knit, while Kendall Jenner impressed in a piano-style leather-strip dress.
