Brands are wise to the fact that Cara Delevingne can sell just about anything (Saint Laurent, jelly shoes from Karl Lagerfeld, and even coloring books). But who knew she doubled as a bird handler? Though we first saw her put that skill to test for Mulberry Fall 2013, the house’s video campaign sees her soar to new heights. [Mulberry]

Beauty, brains, and a huge heap of philanthropy define model Lily Cole to the letter. The latter earned the Vogue Russia cover girl and Impossible.com founder an honorary degree from the Glasgow Caledonian University. “I am honoured to have been offered this distinction by Glasgow Caledonian University, especially as I have great admiration for the work of Professor [MuhammadYunus,” Cole told The Glasgow Evening Times. “I have set up several businesses as social businesses and I am a great believer that the power of business should be used for good.” [Vogue UK]

After 11 seasons with help from Lord & Taylor, Project Runway is taking a southern turn. The successful series announced that Belk would replace the Fifth Avenue fortress as the show’s new sponsor. “As the authority on lifestyle and fashion in the South, we are looking forward to adding our perspective to the show,” said Belk president and chief merchandising officer Kathryn Bufano. [Racked]

Justin Timberlake‘s video for “Tunnel Vision” is a stark turn from his work on “Mirrors,” not to mention totally NSFW. If you can manage to divert your attention away from the topless models frolicking around à la Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines,” then it’s worthy to note that Mr. T dons two different All Saints looks for the clip.

Not only did Wren’s Melissa Coker take on the task of reimagining Minnetonka’s classic Thunderbird Kitty moccasins, she also teamed up with filmmaker Maximilla Lukacs and L.A.-based band Guards to promote the collaboration. Check out the promo here. [ELLE]

Kenzo got crafty with a fantastical Fall 2013 campaign. The effort paired the brand with creatives Maurizio Cattelan, Micol Talso, and Pierpaolo Ferrari who run TOILETPAPER arts magazine. The result offered up a handful of optical illusions including a crazy mani-pedi moment, an overload of eyes, and models Rinko Kikuchi and Sean O’Pry as living pin dolls. [Fashion Gone Rogue]
