Kanye West‘s foray into fashion is moving full steam ahead. Two postings appeared on LinkedIn over the last week, seeking a vice president of production and CFO for a “Kanye West clothing project.” Both listings promise a “high profile” and “unparalleled opportunity” with “West’s creative genius at the heart and soul of it,” suggesting that he’s ready to give Paris Fashion Week another go.

Since we’re on the subject of Mr. West, how about a behind-the-scenes look at his better half’s conquest of CR Fashion Book? We were all stunned to see an eight-month pregnant Kim Kardashian grace the cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s “collector’s item,” but as the video reveals, a candid moment between the Karl Lagerfeld and Kris Jenner may have been the the bigger surprise.

With TopShop and Versus under his belt, could J.W. Anderson be ready to woo investors at LVMH? Reports are swarming that the 28-year-old designer is priming for a buyout from authorities at the prestigious Parisian conglomerate. His own reps, of course, are remaining mum on the news, telling British Vogue “We’re not aware of a conversation having taken place.” [Vogue UK]

Make way for the queen of cool. We’re talking none other than model of the moment Cara Delevingne, whose tattooed hands and brazen brows make a royal appearance on Vogue Australia‘s October 2013 issue. [Vogue Australia]

Across the pond in London, Delevingne’s Bajan BFF Rihanna celebrated the launch of her new, camo-filled collection for River Island while embracing a new aesthetic she deems “ghetto goth.” [Grazia Daily]

You know the Kenzo sweatshirt that we all want—and Zara mimicked in an assortment of similar, lower-priced wears? Well, it almost didn’t happen. [Complex]
