For the past eight months, Cara Delevingne and music mogul Pharrell Williams have been quietly collaborating on the international model’s debut single. And just last week, they were spotted in Paris filming the mystery tune’s music video. So all that’s left for us Delevingners to do? Sit patiently until it drops. Word on the street is that the jam will be released without warning.

While we wait, you can bet that her duet with British soul singer Will Heard will be on repeat.

Today, Burberry unveiled its new customizable My Burberry fragrance with an accompanying ad campaign featuring British supermodels Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.

Shot by the legendary Mario Testino, the television and print ads feature the models in the brand’s iconic Sandringham trench coat, marking the first time Kate and Cara have posed together. “It felt like we were making something special. It’s so exciting to see it come to life now,” Cara said about the campaign.

The label’s new signature fragrance, created with contemporary perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, represents the brand’s classic trench coat and captures the essence of a London garden after the rain. And its “My Burberry” name isn’t just a cheeky moniker. Those who purchase the 90-milliliter eau de parfum can personalize the glass bottle with up to three initials, further fueling monogram obsessions everywhere.

The campaign also has a digital side. Customers have the ability to preview a giant replica of their monogrammed bottle on select billboards in London and New York via their smartphones. Not in either city? No worries. Just personalize a bottle and share it on your news feed.

With the holidays fast approaching, this fragrance is sure to be at the top of every perfume enthusiast’s wish list. (Hint, hint, Mom.)

Kate Moss for ELEVEN PARIS. Cara Delevingne for Burberry. Gisele Bündchen for Sonia Rykiel. Along with impeccably cozy style, this fall’s fashion models are sporting a parade of toothy grins – a welcome departure from the stoic, cold stares perpetuated by the 90s heroin-chic movement.

Perhaps it has something to do with Pharrell Williams’s insanely catchy tune. Or maybe big-name designers simply want to appear more approachable? Either way, I like this changeup. Bring on the happy.

Ah, September: the biggest month of the year as far as fashion and our favorite glossies go. We expect magazines to pull out all the stops in these mega issues, and this year they certainly don’t disappoint. Today, Vogue confirmed that its September cover boasts not one, but three of-the-moment models. The interior spread expands to show six more, for a total count of nine dazzling women.

Not only were these cover girls chosen for their prowess in front of the lens, but Vogue also dubs them “the Instagirls,” a generation of social media–savvy models rapidly building their own personal brands. From left to right, you see Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss (all on the cover itself), followed by Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu.

The sunny spread, filled with striking fall textiles, was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino. If this layout looks familiar, it might be because ten years ago the magazine also featured nine supermodels (including Gisele Bündchen and Daria Werbowy) on its September issue cover, photographed by Steven Meisel.

With major titles (Vogue and W included) hinting at a new class of top models, I suspect that Karlie and Cara are reaching the level of 90s-era Cindy and Kate. Except now they’re not just household names – their fandom extends throughout the Internet, too.

Off-duty style is a genre usually best interpreted by those pretty faces walking the runway – but this fall, DKNY is taking a stab at it. With the help of fashion’s favorite It girl Cara Delevingne, the label has created a 15-piece capsule collection full of varsity and leather jackets, sporty separates, and loud tees. It’s set to launch this October.

Spawned from an exchange of jumpsuit-related ideas, the line also (not-so-surprisingly) includes both hooded and mesh-detailed jumpsuit styles. According to the brand, the laid-back collaboration is “equal parts Cara’s individual quirk and DKNY’s urban edge.”

Part of that quirk is Cara’s humorous touch on the tees, with statements like “If you can read this, you’re too close” paired with a cross-eyed peek at her forehead. That said, I think it’s worth getting up close and personal with this collection (especially its outerwear).

The award for this week’s best dose of random can be confidently awarded to Cara Delevingne. With the help of her self-grooming brows, emojis fit for a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, and the lyrical stylings of LL Cool J, the supermodel lip-synced “Control Myself” for a LOVE magazine feature titled “caraoke!

A play on the time-honored Japanese tradition of karaoke, the viral video features teleprompter-style text running across the screen as the pretty Brit performs with a green wig and colorful vinyl raincoat on a pile of wafer candy.

If you find yourself snoozing like Cara on the morning of her Vogue interview, look no further than this bubbly clip to wake you up.

It looks like this year’s most-talked-about model, Cara Delevingne, is neglecting her beauty sleep. The stunner fell asleep not once, but twice the day of her much-anticipated Vogue profile.

First, she showed up late to her interview because, as she told writer Plum Sykes, she never wakes up more than ten minutes before she has to go anywhere. Then, as the two were getting massages, Cara proceeded to snooze again, leaving Plum waiting in the lobby.

In her defense, she was just dubbed the face of Topshop, and her schedule is jam-packed with appearances, photo shoots, and parties. But maybe before her next interview, she should grab a triple shot of espresso.

Cara Delevingne has conquered every runway from New York to Milan. Up next? The small screen. A clip of the 21-year-old’s British made-for-TV movie Timeless was just released, and it’s mesmerizing. I can’t tell if I’m simply in awe of how amazing she makes a drab polo look or if her acting is actually that good, but I’m withholding full assessment until after the June 19 premiere on the UK’s Sky Arts network.

Below, check out the supermodel’s chops for yourself. No matter what you think of her acting, I’m positive you’ll be Delevingne’d.
