“Blurred Lines” video model Emily Ratajkowski has gone from Robin Thicke-approved eye candy to the star of Rag & Bone’s latest DIY Project campaign. Couple that will her role in the upcoming Gone Girl film, and you’ve got a crossover star in the making. [WWD]

When she’s not letting GLAM get a peak inside of her Michael Kors clutch—you know, because we go waaaay back—Karlie Kloss is dominating Vogue Japan.

Don’t expect Giorgio Armani to hand over the reigns at his namesake label any time soon. “The solution is to remain here while I can and create a group of people that I can trust, with one person by my side,” he told writer Cathy Horyn, adding that his rumored successor Stefano Pilati wouldn’t be the ideal person for the job.

Is there such a thing as too much luxe? During an LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton conference call, Louis Vuitton’s chief financial officer Jean-Jacques Guiony said that scarce supplies of “quality leather” and the brand’s desire to sell more expensive handbags resulted in it underperforming in the third quarter. [WWD]
