Style Scoop: Cara Delevingne Sleeps A Lot, Warby Parker Sold 1 Million Pairs of Glasses, Jeff Koons Approves of Selfies

By  June 25, 2014

Style-Scoop-June25Cara Delevingne had a few things to say—or rather, tweets to tweet—after reading writer Plum Sykes’ Vogue story. The model took to Twitter to defend herself for showing up late to her interview, saying “All I can say is that I work extremely hard and ‘sleeping’ is proof that I sometimes work too hard. I apologise for being so ambitious.” We love our girl Cara, but after reading Sykes’ piece, we have to admit that it’s not all that unflattering. The interview showcased the model as a real person who just gets tired sometimes, which is why we love her in the first place. No need for the defense, Cara—we’re all on your side. [The Cut]

Warby Parker announced that it has distributed 1 million pairs of glasses to people in need through its Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program. That also means that the charitable, and very hip, eyewear brand has sold 1 million pairs of glasses. It just goes to show that innovation and charity will always be fashionable. [Fashionista]

Jeff Koons is totally on board with selfies. Of the “art form,” he says, “I think it’s great! Any form of expression or anything that helps people enjoy life, not make judgment, and brings down segregation in any manner is fantastic.” The artist has a highly anticipated retrospective opening at the Whitney on June 27th and lent his famous “Balloon Dog (Yellow)” to an H&M handbag. Perhaps a “Selfie-Portrait” is next. [Elle.com]

Since all babies should be wearing Dior (ha!), the design house recently opened its latest Baby Dior boutique in Paris. Tuesday evening’s cocktail party marked the celebratory opening of the store, which boasts gray walls to suit children’s taste, WWD reports. Call it what you may, but these tiny clothes are what baby dreams are made of. [WWD]

Tory Burch has a new mentee. Teslin Doud, a Parsons student, is the first recipient of the Tory Burch Mentorship Award, created in partnership with the CFDA and the designer herself. The yearlong mentorship will evolve around a collection created by Doud with guidance from Burch’s team, including a trip to Paris’ Premiere Vision to select fabrics. She’s got some big shoes to fill, but we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more from this young fashion newcomer. [WWD]
