CINDY CRAWFORD ALMOST GOT KIDNAPPED

The OG supermodel reveals how she was almost kidnapped when she got off the plane for a job. “I thought it was a guy from my agency there to pick me up because he had a card with my name on it… But then when I asked him questions, I realized he didn’t know anything. I guess someone had seen me getting on the plane and he turned up there.” Luckily, she didn’t need Liam Neeson to rescue her, Taken-style – she waited till a stoplight and jumped out of the car.

John Casablancas

ELITE FOUNDER JOHN CASABLANCAS DIES

John Casablancas, modeling agent and founder of Elite, died in Rio de Janeiro last Saturday. He was 70. The legendary agent started Elite in the early 70s, handpicking only the best and brightest models and transforming them in to supers – Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen were among his stars. A controversial figure who often dated his own models, he left the agency in 2000 after a BBC documentary exposed the then-president of Elite Europe, propositioning a young model. [NYT]

KARL LAGERFELD + WOODY ALLEN + CATE BLANCHETT = GENIUS

The latest Woody Allen film, Blue Jasmine, features Cate Blanchett as a prissy New Yorker who has a full-on existential meltdown. Obviously, some Chanel jackets were needed. Enter Karl Lagerfeld, who created two custom jackets for Blanchett in two days and sent them to the costume team. Obliging, isn’t he? (You can see the white bouclé one in action in the trailer).

SOME LADY GAVE BIRTH OR SOMETHING, IDK

A nice lady with good hair had a baby in London. Lots of people were very happy, even though they will probably never meet either lady or baby in their life. She wore a Jenny Packham dress. It kind of looked like one her mother-in-law wore. It was a boy. People cheered. Can we go home now? [Buzzfeed]
