These are the stories making headlines this Thursday.

Alber Elbaz joins Instagram
Looks like Alber Elbaz is feeling the love. In his first-ever Instagram post, the designer thanked all of his supporters for their kind words amidst all the drama happening at Lanvin. It was revealed to Fashionista that Eva Chen had a hand in convincing Elbaz to create his new account. {Instagram}

Glenn O'Brien gets profiled by The New York Times
Not long after Kate Lanphear stepped down as editor-in-chief, Maxim named GQ magazine's original Style Guy columnist Glenn O'Brien as its editor-at-large. In his latest profile, O'Brien had a lot to say about why men's magazines are struggling. For one, some "didn't know how to handle the Internet" and others are too much about sex and not beauty. {New York Times}

Kirsten Dunst graces the cover of Net-a-Porter's The Edit
In the cover story for The Edit, 33-year-old Kirsten Dunst speaks about starring in the Mulleavy sisters' film "Woodshock." The seasoned actress revealed, "[Kate and Laura] were great directors and visually it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen, but emotionally it was the hardest movie I've done." Dunst also explained that beauty campaigns have given her the freedom to be an independent actress. {The Edit}

What's next for Marques'Almeida?
Since winning the LVMH Prize for their four-year-old brand Marques'Almeida, 2015 has been something of a whirlwind for design duo (and real-life couple) Paulo Almeida and Marta Marques. The team has more than doubled and e-commerce is expected to launch early next year. The challenge now, it seems, is how to keep the brand's intimate feel and original message while expanding rapidly. {T Magazine

Kenzo launches stateside e-commerce
Kenzo has finally launched e-commerce in the U.S. In conjunction with the launch, the label is releasing its brand new holiday collection, which you can shop here if you're so inclined. {Fashionista inbox}

Ruth Bell discusses her buzzy haircut
Model Ruth Bell's career has skyrocketed since she buzzed her hair, and the 19-year-old acknowledges just as much in her latest interview. ("You wouldn't be interviewing me right now if I hadn't cut my hair.") To give a brief history, Paul Hanlon, the hairstylist for the Alexander McQueen campaign, first gave Bell a Chelsea haircut (shaved but with bangs and fringes around the ears) before giving her the now-famous buzz. Apparently, she now trims it herself with an electric razor. {The New York Times}

Maria Borges on wearing natural curls at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Angolan model Maria Borges has walked the Victoria's Secret runway three times, but this year was the first that she walked out in her natural hair — something that's never happened in the show's 20-year history. She revealed that she was initially hesitant about going natural. "I was nervous, but I had to do it. When they said 'yes' I didn't expect it, but I was so happy!" {Essence}
