Vogue Japan flashed back to New York City circa 1961 with its latest cover. British beauty Cara Delevingne channeled the perpetually preen Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s for its September issue cover, shot by Patrick Demarchelier. Ever the chameleon, Delevingne has posed for British, Chinese, and Korean issues of the glossy already this year. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

There’s a new chief at Christopher Kane and he’s ready to make the brand a global household name. Kering (formerly PPR), appointed its director of financial communications and market intelligence Alexandre de Brettes as the UK brand’s first CEO, a bold move for its newly-cemented stake in the label. “His experience at Kering is invaluable to us and his understanding and appreciation of our creative culture was what drew us to him,” said Kane and his sister Tammy in a joint statement. “Alexandre’s appointment puts the running of our business in very good hands and gives us a strong ally in the building of our company. Together, we will focus on organic global growth and protecting and nurturing the creative DNA of our business.” [Wall Street Journal]

Say it ain’t so! Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have alluded to shuttering their doors for good after being convicted of tax evasion earlier this year. “If we deserved the sentence, there would be nothing to say,” said Gabbana according to the Telegraph. “But we do not deserve it, and so unfortunately we would have to close.” The pair were indicted on charges in June and ordered to 20 months in jail and a staggering $440 million fine. We will close. What do you want us to do? We will close. We will not be able to deal with it. Impossible,” added Dolce. Fingers crossed that the 28-year duo’s legacy not end here. [Telegraph]

How about a “Collegiate Guide to Life” courtesy of Josie Natori? The Natori Co. founder will serve as the keynote speaker at HerCampus.com’s second annual conference at NYC. The session will draw 600 college-aged women who will hear first-hand about Natori’s entrepreneurial beginnings, the importance of social media savvy, and how valuable relationships are to a lasting career.

Much like Jay Z, we too rock Tom Ford; but, it’ll be six months until we get our hands on the brand’s latest concoction. Its new scent, Private Blend London, is launching in tandem with the opening of its first British flagship for $215—$492, and will be sold exclusively in that store for the next half-year. Which isn’t so bad considering we’ll need to stack coins to add it to our beauty pile. [GLAM Blush]

Harper’s Bazaar Latin America may not have given Rose Byrne a whole year, but it did offer the leading lady an August 2013 cover. The I Give It A Year star oozed minimalist chic for the summer edition, adorned in pieces from Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, and Céline, which brings home the point that basics are just as effective as brights for a warm-wearther wardrobe.

Zara’s about to feel the heat. The Inditex Group imprint is hitting Miami’s Lincoln Road Mall this winter. With the 13 million visitors that the South Beach center attracts each year, this could mean big bank for the high street giant. [WWD]

House of Harlow isn’t all about smooth shades and haute handbags. The Nicole Richie label launched clothing this week, too! Though Richie already channels her boho chic prowess at Winter Kate, her Harlow offerings seem a bit more downtown chic; in other words, there’s a lot of leather going on. [SheFinds]

Fashion is invading the 2013 Venice Film Festival. Miu Miu will join the cinema fête for the second time with its Women’s Tales installments, featuring female filmmakers and Miu Miu ensembles. The Door by Ava DuVernay and Le Donne della Vuccirira by Hiam Abbas, both silent shorts, will show on August 29, and lead into a panel discussing the role of women in film.
