Have you asked yourself today, "What is Cara Delevingne up to?" The British model, who just made headlines as the new face of Saint Laurent, is unstoppable. Further proof can be found in her jam-packed schedule, which currently includes party throwing and dropping trou. Not necessarily in the way that you think — here's where you can expect to see Delevingne next.
The "comfortable glamour" dress code remained a constant at Marc Jacobs, right down to the return of the silky pajamas motif. And this time around, the relaxed silhouettes on top came paired with glittering jackets and dainty floral-printed A-line skirts; or were traded in altogether for looser, albeit shimmery, evening dresses.
Instead of hinting at the season ahead, Jacobs's Resort 2014 felt like a reinvention of past collection favorites. Think hip-slung skirts and crop tops á la Spring 2013 and slinky slip dresses from Fall 2013 to start. But with the "old," came the new, and the Resort tone took hold in punchy Breton stripes (present on everything from oversize-lapel coats to mini tank dresses) and lug-sole, crisscross sandals — a not-so-subtle play on Summer's go-to nautical theme.

Nicole Richie was gilded and gorgeous — and a little on the sexier side — for tonight's CFDA red carpet. Thanks to a revealing cut, Richie's gold lamé Marc Jacobs gown showed just a hint of cleavage at the side, but she kept the look more fashion insider than disco queen, opting for just a white satin clutch and a few well-placed gold jewels to finish. Are you impressed?

Lake Bell married artist Scott Campbell in New Orleans on Saturday, and a ton of her celebrity friends were in attendance. Jennifer Aniston was decked out in a short, summery dress alongside her own fiancé, Justin Theroux. Justin, who is good friends with Scott, appeared to be part of the wedding party and, at one point, was in charge of tending to the couple's dogs. Lance Armstrong is close with Scott as well and tweeted his excitement about the nuptials before heading to the big event. Cameron Diaz looked like she had some official duties to help out her friend and What Happens in Vegas costar Lake. Kate Bosworth, who also worked with Lake in Black Rock, had her man, Michael Polish, as her date. Who else was in attendance? Marc Jacobs, Eva Longoria, Josh Hartnett, and Alicia Silverstone, to name a few.
Lake wore a custom Marchesa Couture gown, and Scott was in Marc Jacobs. Lake and Scott met on the set of How to Make It in America in 2011 and got engaged in 2012. Click through to see all the stars at Lake and Scott's wedding — congrats to the happy couple!
Jacobs and his business partner, Robert Duffy, announced today that they've hired British designer Katie Hillier as the new creative director of Marc by Marc Jacobs. Hillier, who Duffy told WWD "is allowed to staff the team any way she wants," has in turn hired fellow designer Luella Bartley as design director for women's ready-to-wear.
Hillier had been freelancing for Marc by Marc Jacobs for a decade before joining the team in a full-time capacity, designing everything from watches, jewelry, and handbags. Bartley designed her own line, called Luella, from 1999 to 2009.
Duffy said Jacobs is "still the boss" — he will still be an advisor, but will focus mostly on his mainline and duties with Louis Vuitton — and added that the menswear team will continue to report to its current leader, Karl Aberg. But Duffy also noted that he wanted to shake things up at Marc by Marc Jacobs because things were "getting a little stale."
"We have an issue with the ready-to-wear. I knew it because I pay very close attention to company-owned retail stores and I knew what was happening. We started out really strong in denim, and then we just let it go."
But the company seems confident that some new blood will help turn things around.
"I am very excited to have Katie here in her new role," Jacobs said. "Her creativity and energy inspires me and everybody she works with. She is a great leader. She is a team player and a great friend to Robert and me."

Stripes will never go out of style, and this season's latest delivery from Michael Kors, Jason Wu, and Marc Jacobs is all about making a bold statement. From striking rugby stripes to more traditional nautical interpretations, shop more than 40 of the boldest striped pieces for Summer right now.
Nothing says summertime like a pair of espadrilles, and the latest arrivals from Louboutin, Soludos, and Castaner are sure to please everyone. Slip on a pair of red flats with cropped denim for an effortless off-duty look, and come nighttime, swap them out for a wedged pair and a little white dress.
The sunnier seasons herald in a much more relaxed approach to dressing. For most, that means shedding the layers, and keeping it basic. For others — we count repeat performer Diane Kruger among them — it means breaking out the crop top. Last year, we saw the resurgence of bare midriffs in a noticeable way, and now it's becoming the go-to trend for Hollywood's A-list.
And thanks to Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs, the latest set of crop top-wearing stars aren't limiting the silhouette to the usual sculpted bralette style. Instead, Kruger chose a sportier version, Doutzen Kroes went with stripes and long sleeves, and Julia Restoin Roitfeld's breezy white iteration reminded us of a sexy slip dress. Since it's only mid-May and Summer hasn't even officially started, we're wondering: Will you be taking the crop-top look for a spin this season?
