She may have portrayed a stoic seeker in The Host, but Diane Kruger livened up with a retro flair for the latest issue of Marie Claire UK. Stylist Arabella Greenhil adorned the German star in pieces from Chanel Haute Couture, La Perla, Dolce & Gabbana, and Mary Katrantzou while she posed for photographer David Roemer in the five-page-spread and double cover.

Nobody’s messing with Adriana Lima‘s clique. The Victoria’s Secret superstar has departed from New York’s Marilyn agency and joined Lindsey Wixson and Grace Jones on Society Model Management’s growing roster.  “We at The Society Management are thrilled to welcome one of the most iconic and successful models in our industry,” reads an agency statement to Fashionista. “This is an exciting time here at The Society Management, and we are honored to work with such a select group of great, talented models.” Lima reportedly followed booker Chris Gay to Society after he was appointed its general manager.

Baby North West may be the biggest thing to hit the Kardashian clan in a while, but its three, eldest sisters are still keeping up with the fashion game. The Kardashian Kollection is collaborating with Lipsy London on a line that will be made exclusive to customers in the UK, Spain, and the Middle East this September. It doesn’t stop there though; Jupi Corp, which produces the Kardashian line, will expand into Kardashian kids next year. Between that and Kanye West‘s style sensibilities, Nori may be the freshest kid around. [WWD]

Is André Leon Talley hanging up his mic before putting it to good use? The newly-minted Numéro Russia editor suggested that his talk show on NBC may not come to fruition in the current issue of V Magazine. “My deal is not to be the next Andy Cohen and is not even in its set stage; it’s in its incubating stage,” he said. “So I have nothing to report [on the show's development]. If it doesn’t happen, I’ll be fine too.” Oh, but André, we certainly won’t.

If you thought the Namibian desert couldn’t get any hotter, think again. Kate Upton turned up the temperature for Redemption Choppers’ Spring 2013 ads, sans actual choppers. Judging from the shots, Sports Illustrated is going to have to amp up its sex appeal for Upton’s next appearance. [Daily Mail]

What does the great Miuccia Prada do the night before a show? Listen to George Michael, of course! The Prada paramount was featured in LOVE Magazine‘s tenth anniversary issue, while EIC Katie Grand dished on working with Prada in the past… and her bright underpinnings. “The first show I styled for her was in 2002, and Miuccia would listen to George Michael at 3:00 a.m., and the male design team would put on the show shoes and strut around backstage the night before,” Grand said. “I remember she was wearing brightly-colored underwear under white dresses at the time. I’m not sure anyone would necessarily have expected that.” [Grazia Daily]

New Zealand designer Annah Stretton is looking to help a same-sex couple ring their wedding bells. Drawing inspiration from January’s Chanel couture finale, Stretton launched the “Come on Oz, Say ‘I Do’” competition that will give two Australian brides the wedding of their dreams. “I have always been proud to call myself a New Zealander and even more so now that we do not discriminate against those who want to be married based on their gender,” Stretton said in a statement. “Because they cannot yet get married in their own country, I’m inviting our Aussie neighbours to jump the ditch and, using the platform I have been given at New Zealand Fashion Week, be married for the world to see.” [Frockwriter]
