Lara Stone, a space cadet? In electro-pop duo Hot Chips’ latest music video, the gap-toothed model and face of CK One (pictured) took her strangest role to date, dressed in a pointy-shouldered jacket and low-cut bustier as the captain of a spaceship, alongside legendary actor Terence Stamp. Stone landed the gig on behalf of British comedian Peter Serafinowicz, the video’s director and friend of Stone’s husband, David Walliams. [Telegraph]

If Bryanboy’s front-row seat wasn’t close enough to the runway, he just got a little closer. The blogger is reportedly joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model alongside judges Kelly Cutrone and model Rob Evans. This cast change is just one of several made in the past few months, since Tyra Banks gave mainstays J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and Nigel Barker the boot. [Styleite]
The director of the year-old Brigitte Bardot fashion label, Sarah Ohana, has enlisted the help of industry insiders, including André Saraiva, Paris retailer Maria Luisa Moumaillou, and French fashion editor Viviane Blassel to create one-off items for charity. Some of the wares up for sale are a white silk gown, a gingham dress, and a black leotard, all playing off of pieces that Bardot wore in her films. A portion of the profits will be donated to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the protection of animals. [WWD]

Mario Testino photographed Kate Moss and Lara Stone for the latest cover of Love magazine and then signed 50 random copies. Only 200 issues are being printed and those lucky enough to get a copy (Dover Street Market already has a wait list) won’t know if their issue is autographed until after removing the bespoke packaging.

Speaking of memorabilia, tabloids were reminded just how much Americans love it last week.

Today we published a preview of Carine Roitfeld’s new book Irreverent, which Rizzoli is releasing in mid-October. Roitfeld watchers will recall many of the images we’ve posted. There’s Carine as arch provocateur, staging a portrait of the luminous Eniko Mihalik with an octogenarian’s hands, and another with a nude model sipping from an enormous bottle of Chanel eau de cologne. And then there’s Carine in career-maker mode. We’ve included her first shoots with Crystal Renn and Lara Stone, both of whom owe no small part of their fame to the visionary editor in chief of Paris Vogue. “I love how she’s almost naked here,” Roitfeld says of the Terry Richardson-lensed shot of Stone. “It seems like a good beginning.”
To my eyes, the most striking shots depict Roitfeld combining both instincts. I’m talking about Eva Herzigova playing a butcher for a Mario Testino portfolio in The Face circa 1997. Nothing says man-eater quite like a gorgeous blonde with a bloody pile of gnawed bones in her lap. Roitfeld has included a thank-you note from the model alongside the spread. “The ‘Butcher’ story we did gave me the chance to be seen and understood as a model with a much vaster potential…” writes Herzigova. “I had this pin-up label attached to me for so long that it seemed impossible to shed it. Thanks to your and Mario’s imagination you helped me to be liberated from this.”
