In a rare instance, filmmaker Sofia Coppola has stepped in front of the camera for Vogue Australia. The Virgin Suicides mastermind posed—in her own wardrobe—for its “Love Issue,” where actors fawned over her leadership on set. “Although technically she has a very strong sense of style, she also puts a lot of focus on her actors and takes good care of them,” said Bling Ring star Emma Watson. “They give back to her because of that. I think I trusted her pretty instantly.”  [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Has 52 ever looked this fine? Julianne Moore showed a whole lot of leg for a photography exhibition helmed by Swedish brand Rika and Matches Fashion. “The Iron Girls,” as it’s called, includes intimate captures of Helena ChristensenDree Hemingway, and Josephine de la Baume that are currently on display at Matches’ Welbeck Street base in London. “At Rika we are always inspired by incredible, strong, talented women,” said Jen Carey, who photographed the series. “Our aim with this project was to celebrate them as they are. Each woman shares an understanding of our philosophy as well as a friendship. It was something of a wish list to have the opportunity to work with all these women in a single project.” [Telegraph]

Julia Restoin Roitfeld is giving her best Givenchy glare in a new ad for the brand’s eyewear range.

Guess who’s back?! A.P.C.’s key to “dopeness” is not leaving the cutting room floor anytime soon. The Yeezus magnate is rumored to have completed a 100-piece unisex line that will show at fashion week this September. “We’re further told West is again being advised by a team of top designers from hip brands, including his pal Nicola Formichetti of Diesel,” reported Page Six. This is big news considering the harsh critique of West’s namesake debut. As long as there are no eccentric masks or kilts involved, we can stand to give Yeezy another chance. [GLAM Chic]

Gucci triumphs in the spring 2013 glossy wars with 111 covers. Frida Giannini‘s house, which also topped the list for both fall 2011 and 2012, boasted its colorful, feminine collections for the front of Elle with Kate Hudson, Vogue Australia with Naomi Watts, and Allure with Drew Barrymore.

Speaking of Gucci, its Sound of Change concert, headlined by Beyoncé, raised $3.9 million dollars that will go on to benefit women and girls around the world through 84 non-profits. “My vision for Chime for Change was to facilitate further awareness and fundraising by bringing together a global community to support the important work that is already happening,” Giannini said in a press release. “This is the first time in history that charity concertgoers have been able to choose where their money goes.” [PR Newswire]
