Having made it pretty clear that she wants a career outside of modeling — say, as an actress — Cara Delevingne tells The Guardian that she wouldn't want her own daughter to be a model. "I get a lot of girls who say, I just want to be a model so badly. And I think: you can do better than that." In fact, Delevingne doesn't have entirely kind words for the fashion industry, noting that she's often felt like a puppet or mannequin. {The Guardian}

Anna Wintour got real honest with some Central Saint Martins students over the weekend as she doled out her career advice. Some of her tips: Presentations are just as good if not better than runway shows, you won't succeed by being shy and resort and pre-fall are necessary to a designer's business because they are massive moneymakers. Oh, and she thought the red carpet dresses at the Tonys sucked. {Racked}

After nabbing an investment from LVMH, joining Loewe as creative director and hiring a CEO for his namesake company, Jonathan Anderson has made yet another big move this week: Launching his website and first e-commerce platform. It's a bit surprising that the site wasn't in place until now, especially considering how involved Anderson has been in his social media strategy, but he must have wanted to get it just right. Have at it, fangirls. {Vogue UK}
