Naomi Campbell (pictured) is on the brink of retirement.  Worn, beaten and utterly stomped-to-a-pulp runways are thankful. We, however, are not. [Times UK]

Keith's winning dress from Project Runway for Brooke Shields to debut on Lipstick Jungle is too small for her to wear. Shields says she sent it to be "fitted to be real people size" and may even split up the top and bottom. For Keith, that's like hearing a seam rip. [The Cut]

We love a new face! Here's an up-and-coming model you'll surely want to watch: Simon Nessman.
We saw him walk in the Rock & Republic show during New York Fashion Week, and that probably won't be the last time he catches our eye. [The Cut]

Though we couldn't hop the pond for London Fashion Week, a few others could.

J. Crew is synonymous with preppy, and they're just fine with keeping it that way. Having done it right for over 20 years -- and kick-starting the careers of some of the most noted new menswear designers -- their new lifestyle boutique proves again why every man goes through a prep stage at some point or another.
