The diversity of models chosen to walk during fashion week has been the subject of much scrutiny recently, so the Fashion Spot took the liberty of tracking the numbers over the last few seasons. The results were not great: Last fashion week, the number of non-white models walking the runway grew only 1 percent. The boutique agency Fusion has the best ratio of models of color to white models, with 46 percent non-white models per show package, while Silent NYC (also a small-scale agency) repped a whopping zero models of color for both spring and fall 2014. {The Fashion Spot}

If there's one fashion industry leader we wouldn't mind taking career advice from, it's Angela Ahrendts, who recently moved from Burberry to Apple to head up its retail operations. Her pro tips for killing it at a new job? Focus on the unique skill set you were hired for, ask lots of questions and let your instincts and emotions guide you, because they're usually right. (Easy for the woman responsible for leading Burberry's turnaround to say.) {LinkedIn}

Emily Ratajkowski covers GQ's July issue, alternating her wardrobe between nothing but a lei and nothing but some sand. (Hey, if you've got it...) The model talks literature, making the transition to acting with the upcoming "Gone Girl" and hiding in the bathroom every time "Blurred Lines" comes on in a bar. {GQ}

Donatella Versace "reviewed" Mariah Carey's new album for Vogue UK. "Reviewed" in quotations because the two are friends and she has nothing but glowing comments for the singer. {Vogue UK}

Opening Ceremony is opening a pop-up shop in London's Ace Hotel, a fitting match given that it already has one at the Ace in New York. {WWD}

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake may have pioneered the his-and-hers denim look, but Iggy Azalea and boyfriend Nick Young just did an infinitely more tasteful version. {Refinery29}

Not to sound like a broken record or anything, but how has Khloe Kardashian not gotten the memo about NOT WEARING NATIVE AMERICAN HEADDRESSES? Come on, now. {Page Six}
