Modelinia AM Reads: Jourdan Dunn Reveals Her Online Obsessions and Must-Have Beauty Products

Burberry have launched on LINE, the social media and free messaging app that is taking Japan by storm. To celebrate, the team at Burberry have created a cartoon featuring some of their London Fashion Week faves including Cara Delevingne, Anna Wintour, Mario Testino and of course, Christopher Bailey. ~ Grazia UK 

Fashion’s lack of diversity is not news to anyone these days—the issue has been addressed countless times to little effect.  But, thanks to a recent article in The New York Times, the sad reality is being put blast once again, this time with actual statistics to back it up.  Among the more alarming facts is that of the 260 designers who will show at New York Fashion Week, there are only three “with any global reach” who are African-American: Tracy Reese, Public School and Hood by Air.  Needless to say, we need change, and fast! ~ New York Times

Naomi Campbell showed her friends and fans how a supermodel walks the runway as she presented her latest Fashion For Relief fashion show in London on Thursday night.  The British icon – who organized the show to raise awareness and money to fight the spread of Ebola - was joined by fellow model Jourdan Dunn as well as television personalities, singers, actresses and just a few surprises. See who walked in the show, here. ~ Vogue UK

Fur was everywhere at Ralph Lauren’s fall 2015 show Thursday, accompanying everything from outerwear to evening gowns. But as it turns out, it wasn’t fur at all. According to the collection’s show notes, all of the fur-like pieces featured in the collection were actually constructed of shearling. Commendable, not to mention impressive from a design perspective (we were certainly fooled!). ~ Fashionista

If you’ve ever pondered over what your favorite runway models and masterpieces would look like in art-form, then this should make your day.  Diary Sketches founder and Illustrator Laura Kay recently shared a few amazing freehand illustrations she’s conjured up over the last few days at New York Fashion Week. Relive the runway magic here. ~ WhoWhatWear

Party Pics: Lily Aldridge, Poppy Delevingne and More Celebrate NYFW Day 7

It’s been exactly one week since the start of New York Fashion Week and lo’ and behold, the party scene is still going strong — the proof of which we saw throughout the city on Wednesday night.

For starters, there was the Miranda Eyewear Collection launch party, hosted by Michael Kors at the famed designer’s SoHo flagship store.  Much like the front row at Kors’ fall 2015 show earlier that day, the event drew a number of famous faces including actresses Kate Hudson and Allison Williams and models Lily Aldridge, Poppy Delevingne, Jessica Hart and Ming Xi.  Despite the blistering temperatures outside, the models couldn’t help but show off their spring style. Lily for one, paired her thigh-high black suede boots with a body-clinging stripped shift dress, while Poppy glowed in an ornate flower-patterned frock.
