Good morning!

“There’s mild flirtation, which is exciting to say the least. I mean, get rid of Daario bring on the ladies.”

At ESPNW: The Cost of Being a Girl. An excerpt:

Sports helped me to escape the jaws of narrow gender norms well enough to see myself on my own terms, more than other girls I knew who seemed largely defined by them. But I held the tension in my throat for years and lugged the shame around until I learned how to name it.

My sexuality — something I wouldn’t explore until college — eventually made the male gaze largely irrelevant, but that didn’t happen overnight. It’s hard to shake something our culture suffocates you with. Discovering my love of women was not some response to patriarchy, but I would be lying if I said it did not change my relationship to parts of it in adulthood.

Cara Delevingne is in the new film Kids in LoveShe’s also a new face of Marc Jacobs along with boo Annie Clark.


“CARA, Womanchild Every once in a blue moon I am fortunate enough to meet a model with a personality so huge it almost overshadows even the strongest of looks– the most dramatic fashion. When I met Cara through Katie Grand a few years ago, she was the girl in the animal onesie with boundless energy, great humor and in perpetual motion. Watching Cara’s growth and evolution into a dynamic, outspoken, independent woman is a true joy, just as she is herself. Her generosity and care in wanting to get a job done right (even if it means missing a flight!) is a testament to her professionalism and true character. Photographed sitting still and just as full of life as always, the unstoppable Cara Delevingne by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad campaign.” -@themarcjacobs Photographed by David Sims Styled by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair by @guidopalau Makeup by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16

“ANNIE, Other The idea to ask musician Annie Clark (more commonly known by her stage name, St. Vincent) to be a part of our ad campaign had been discussed long before the Fall 2016 season began. It was Katie Grand who originally brought Annie to my attention and suggested we consider extending an invitation to join this campaign. I was really taken by comments Annie made in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine where she described queerness as a transcendence of sexuality and as a “banner” for being “other.” It was thoughtful, relevant and poignant. There’s a certain maturity that’s inherent in Annie that transcends her age and while her music is a direct reflection of her intellectual curiosities and musical prowess, it was when I had the privilege of meeting Annie in person that I experienced her magnetism. She operates with such genuine grace, poise and sincerity. I am in complete awe of the beauty of this photograph by David Sims for our Fall 2016 ad campaign. It so perfectly captures the inherent contemplativeness of Annie, her humility and mystery.” -@themarcjacobs Photographed by David Sims Styled by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair by @guidopalau Makeup by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16
