Choupette is one fancy, high-flying cat. She’s already starred in beauty editorials, has a bag named after her, and now, a photography book, that will serve as a “tell-all.” Titled, Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat, the book will provide an inside look at Karl Lagerfeld’s esteemed feline penned by Patrick Mauriès and Jean Christophe Napais. The book is available on September 15. [Fashionista]

Rag & Bone is using another ‘90s icon in an ad campaign! Winona Ryder is the face of their Fall 2014 campaign and Jerry Seinfeld is starring in their menswear Spring 2015 lookbook! It also should be noted, Rag & Bone is showing how to style your boyfriend’s clothes. Wives to designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, Gucci Westman and Glenna Neece respectively, star alongside Camille Rowe, Lucy Chadwick, and Andreea Diaconu in the campaign wearing men’s pieces. Cute. [Glamour]

The founder of Ford Model Agency, Eileen Ford, died at the age of 92. “Eileen’s influence, vision, and kindness will be remembered and celebrated inside and outside the fashion industry,” Laura Bailey, who was signed to Ford Models in the 90s, said. “I’d only read about the near mythical fantastical Ford Models, but, when I moved to NYC on a wing and a prayer, they changed my life. The stories of life with Eileen were legendary, and my early Manhattan days were very much shaped by the Ford Models family, then run by Katie [Bailey’s daughter] and her team. It’s a time in my life I’ll always treasure. She was one of a kind.” [British Vogue]

New bride Olivia Palermo knows a thing or two about being a stylish bride. We couldn’t get enough of her Carolina Herrera bridal look. Turns out, the sweater with feather and jewel accents, silk shorts, and tulle skirt, were just for the first ceremony. Palermo is preparing for a bigger ceremony next year and is getting inspiration from the couture shows. Hmmm, whatever could she choose? [Vogue]

Jason Wu is dancing with robots, literally, in the pages of W magazine, not unlike his role as artistic director of Hugo Boss. “This is a big company, a machine,” he said of his work at Hugo Boss. “What’s been missing is a single, unified message that translates throughout the entire company, all the way down to the stores and customers.” Not to worry, though, he is a man with a plan. “I’m a very decisive person,” he continued. “Which makes for a very suitable fit with a German company. Making everything look effortless, takes a lot of effort.” We can’t wait to see the final product. [W magazine]
