Emilia, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, has already been landing fashion covers (as herself) for the likes of FLARE Magazine and Glamour France.

Karlie at Home–Being one of the industry’s most in demand models certainly has its perks, and as shown by a recent feature in Vogue US, Karlie Kloss is doing pretty well for herself. The American model and friend to Taylor Swift shared her West Village townhouse in the magazine’s March issue with these photographs captured by Jason Schmidt. Nate Berkus worked as the interior designer for her place which Vogue describes as “luxurious without being overly cluttered with inappropriately expensive rarities”. Karlie tells the magazine, “I wanted to mix and match the same way I do with fashion—wearing, say, a beautiful Saint Laurent tailored blazer with an H&M T-shirt.” Check out more images of Karlie’s place below and see more of the feature on Vogue.com.

Makeup giant MAC Cosmetics is pairing up with “Royals” singer Lorde for a limited-edition makeup collection which is set to hit shelves on June 5th. The Cut broke the news and had this quote from Lorde on the team up, “I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! MAC has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.” Perhaps she’ll take a cue from her recent The Wild shoot, and have a line of dark colors? MAC’s past collaborations have featured Rihanna, Carine Roitfeld and Beth Ditto.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell recently stopped by “The Breakfast” Club, a New York-based radio station where its host Charlemagne is known for not holding back when it comes to his interview questions. There to promote season 2 of her modeling competition series “The Face”, Naomi opened up about who she thinks are the top models today, whether she ever starved for the job and plastic surgery.
On whether 90s supermodels starved themselves:
“You know, I have Jamaican-Chinese heritage. I love my food. And no, I’ve never- you know I came [in the industry] with group of ladies. Linda, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Stephanie, and that just was not [it]. We were friends, we loved each other and we loved to go eat with each other. That was not a part of that era.”
