Though she’s one of the world’s first supermodels, Christy Turlington Burns is Just Like You. The industry vet signed on for Citizens of Humanity’s newest video series, which chronicles influential philanthropists and aims to “support more causes around the world.” Burns’ profile centers in on maternal health and her own nonprofit, Every Mother Counts. As part of the project, Burns and fellow participants will design limited-edition tees that will in turn benefit a charity of their choice. [T Magazine]

We may admire Isabel Marant‘s effortlessly-cool style, but the French designer seems to be less enthused. “I look like a delivery guy. I drive my scooter and always have my helmet on,” the H&M collaborator told the Wall Street Journal. “When people meet me, they think ‘This cannot be her,’ because I look like a bum.” Which we can’t possibly fathom considering she wears her own label “99 percent” of the time.

It seems like just yesterday that we revealed DailyCandy and Tribeca Enterprise’s plans to celebrate style and cinema this fall, but the occasion couldn’t have come any sooner. Fashion In Film is just a few weeks a way, and in tandem with its Instagram contest, DC has revealed the lineup for the two-day event. In addition to screening two original films on September 19 and 20, the fest will host panels with documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, the unmatched Iris Apfel, and award-winning costume director Catherine Martin. There will also be free screenings of some of Martin’s best works in films like The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge. For a full lineup of the first-of-its-kind event, click here. [GLAM Inbox]

Chloë Sevigny and Opening Ceremony prove to be the perfect pair—for the fifth time now—in time for Fall 2013. The It girl’s new capsule features gingham mini dresses, voluminous sleeves, and coated finishes that scream Clueless-chic and, quite honestly, comprise the perfect wardrobe to celebrate NSync’s return. [Opening Ceremony]

For all of you online shoppers who can’t help but fall for e-commerce’s allure, there’s a new site in town that’s narrowing down your options… to One Dress a Day. The site is a new venture for Kardashian Kollection chief Bruno Schiavi who hopes to “offer women something special they can’t get anywhere else” thanks to a limited supply of a single dress sold daily.

Sister, sister! Rashida and Kidada Jones are Band of Outsiders’ Fall 2013 femmes, and quite possibly, the new faces of a sweater-turban trend. [Racked]

J Brand is ready to fly solo. The premium denim pusher unveiled plans to launch stand-alone stores in L.A. and New York next year, but not in typical retail locales. “It’s a little bit off the beaten path. We’re around very cool brands that have profitable stores,” brand CEO Jeff Rudes told Women’s Wear Daily. “We don’t believe you have to be on a cool street like Melrose Place to create an image and make money.” [Vogue UK]
