Cara Delevingne Got Pulled Over by the Police for… a Selfie?

They say to truly be a supermodel, one must be a household name, and not just in the homes of the fashion-obsessed.  If that’s true, then Cara Delevingne has officially joined the ranks.

In a testament to her universal star power, the 22-year-old supermodel was stopped by two handsome NYPD officers on Thursday night, but don’t worry, they weren’t there to arrest her.  Like the rest of us, the two policemen were just looking to take a selfie with their favorite #InstaGirl, who of course, was more than happy to oblige.  In addition to jumping out of her car and posing for a quick pic with the men in uniform, Cara also pulled out her own phone to capture the moment uploading a snap of her and one of the cops to Instagram with the caption: “See you next time @ra_718 #Esson.”

Get Ready to Experience Kate Moss’ Curves in a Whole New Way

Kate Moss has certainly been involved in a lot of outlandish projects throughout the years— who could forget the 18 karat gold yoga statue created by artist Marc Quinn, or her limited-edition sushi boxes for French chain, Sushi Shop? — but the latest may be the most eccentric to date.

In celebration of her 25-years in the fashion industry, the 40-year-old supermodel has teamed up with British artist Jane McAdam Freud and London’s 34 restaurant — the site of Kate’s 40th birthday bash back in January — to create a one-of-a-kind champagne coupe moulded from her left breast— no we’re not kidding.

Model Trend Report: White Handbags for Labor Day and Beyond!

It may still be hot and muggy outside, but there is at least one way to beat the heat this month— with sharp, white accessories.  Structured, ladylike handbags in various shades of white appear to be making a comeback in the final stretch of summer, popping up on the arms of fashion’s ‘it-girls’ near and far.  In L.A., Rosie Huntington-Whiteley topped off her casual all-white ensemble with the addition of a sleek white tote bag, while in New York City Miranda Kerr was a study in pre-fall neutrals, accenting her tonal look with a chic Nina Ricci satchel.  Meanwhile, Suki Waterhouse was spotted darting out of London’s Chiltern Firehouse carrying a miniature white shoulder bag, which gave contrast to her minimal LBD and retro newsboy cap.

Interview Magazine Taps Three Model Muses for Its September Issue

While Vogue is paying tribute to the hottest models on Instagram for their September Issue, Interview Magazine is recognising some of the world’s most sought-after photographers— but don’t worry, there are still plenty of models featured too! The magazine tapped six well-known photographers, who chose women whom they felt represented beauty.  In the case of Mert & Marcus, Craig McDean and Mikael Jansson that meant Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta and Daria Werbowy.

Of the six covers, Naomi is the only model shot in color, appearing in a Balmain ‘warrior princess’ type shoot, in which she can be seen posing in nothing but a thick gold choker and matching wrist bands.  Meanwhile Amber appears to channel old-school menswear in her black-and-white Man Ray-inspired shoot, while Daria goes completely makeup-free for her September close-up.

See all three model covers below and pick up the September issue of Interview when it hits newsstands this Thursday to read interviews with each of the photographers, conduced by their muses (with the exception of Mert and Marcus who were interviewed by Riccardo Tisci).
