Cara Delevingne and Moschino team up with Magnum Ice Cream
Each year at the Cannes International Film Festival, fancy ice cream brand Magnum taps a fashion person or two to star in glossy ads for the treat. Following in the footsteps of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, the 2017 face of Magnum is Cara Delevingne, cast alongside Moschino's Jeremy Scott in the new "Unleash Your Wild Side" campaign. The debut clip features Delevingne, Scott and animated Moschino characters illustrated by Uli Meyer, known for his work on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Space Jam." {Fashionista inbox}

Here are the celebrities and brands that received FTC warning letters
Recently, the FTC sent a batch of letters to celebrities, brands and influencers as a not-so-subtle reminder about proper disclosure of sponsored posts on Instagram. Among the offenders were Naomi Campbell, Victoria Beckham, Emily Ratajkowski and Behati Prinsloo; many of the undisclosed posts have since been removed at the request of the brands or their agents. {WWD}

Missoni to hold celebratory co-ed runway show for Spring 2018
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Angela Missoni's creative direction, Missoni will become the latest brand to combine its women's and men's runway shows for the Spring 2018 season. This marks the first time the family-run house will show both collections at once, following in the footsteps of fellow Italian brands like Gucci, Etro and Bottega Veneta, who will follow the same format come September. There's no word on whether this will be the new standard for Missoni's shows going forward or a one-time switch, and a representative for Missoni did not immediately respond to our request for comment. {WWD}

Tommy Ton addresses the realities of shooting street style
It's been 10 years since Tommy Ton began shooting street style for his former blog Jak and Jil — which essentially paved the way for the booming street style industry as it stands — and he recently sat down with Lawrence Schlossman for a raw discussion addressing the highs and lows of the gig. "It can be incredibly physically and mentally exhausting after you've been accumulating loss of sleep and not eating frequently," he says. "But there's a belittling aspect to this job that makes you feel like you're doing a job that's beneath the very people you're photographing and it doesn't always sit well with me, especially when it turns into a chaotic circus." {Grailed}

Karl Lagerfeld shares the inspiration behind the Chanel rocket
If you, like us, were completely obsessed with the Chanel rocket from the Fall 2017 show, then you'll be pleased to know that Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by a real-life French astronaut for the show. The designer told a radio host that Thomas Pesquet, an astronaut who's been working inside the International Space Station since taking a rocket there last November, was his muse. "In fact, he has even inspired fashion since I was indirectly inspired not only by where he is but also by his personality, because I think he is more charismatic than his predecessors," explained Lagerfeld. {i-D}

Kendall Jenner talks being sexy and Bella Hadid on Mario Testino's podcast
Kendall Jenner was a guest on Mario Testino's podcast, where she chats about her friendship with Bella Hadid — they've been friends since high school, before they started working — and her love for transforming herself for photo shoots, particularly when it comes to being sexy. "I don't get to be hot very often... I love going like, sexual, because I don't get to do it," she says. {Mixcloud}
