Gigi on TV…

Gigi Hadid has been on the modeling scene for only a couple of seasons, but she is already thinking about what she’d like to do next. In a recent interview, Hadid revealed, “Once I’m done with modeling I want to be able to do other things in the industry. Maybe hosting my own fashion or cooking show.” Could we have the next Heidi Klum or Tyra Banks on our hands? [British Vogue]

A picture is worth a thousand words…

Typically shy designer Raf Simons does not like the spotlight—he’s said, “If I could choose to be anonymous, I would be”—which is what makes the personal family photos he shared with Another Man so special. Simons revealed images of his parents, holidays, and early career with the publication, and outlined why each photo was relevant or inspirational in his current life. [Another Man]

H&M’s all-star cast…

It seems H&M turned to the runways of Victoria’s Secret to cast its latest ad. The first image from the Swedish retailer’s summer campaign was released today, and it features supermodels Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, and Natasha Poly. The campaign will officially launch on April 30, and will include a TV ad with an exclusive single by Swedish duo Axwell /\ Ingrosso. [Yahoo]

Upton’s outrage…

In an interview with Alexa Chung, Kate Upton voiced her disappointment with Terry Richardson for a video he posted online without her permission. In 2012, a video of Upton doing the Cat Daddy dance in a red bikini went viral, though Upton thought the video was filmed for fun and did not realize it would hit the Net. When asked whether she confronted Richardson, Upton said, “Yes, I did. I was like, ‘That was disrespectful, you could have told me!’” [British Vogue]

Hillier keeps busy…

Since the announcement that the Marc by Marc Jacobs line would be discontinued, the fate of the line’s creative director, Katie Hillier, and design director Luella Bartley has been uncertain. The pair announced they would be creating their own luxury ready-to-wear collection, and Hillier recently debuted a revamped website and new line for her existing eponymous jewelry collection, which calls her the “creative director of Marc Jacobs contemporary line.” Hmm.
