• J.W. Anderson is partnering with Topshop on women’s clothes and fun objects like Rubik’s cubes. The first collection will be in stores come September, and the second, early next year. [Telegraph UK]

• Diane von Furstenberg plans to reveal “a new store prototype” at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas this December, but the brand wouldn’t elaborate on what that entails. Sounds about as vague as everything that happens in Vegas. [WWD]

• A colorful Kendra Spears covers Vogue Germany’s July issue, photographed by Claudia Knoepful and Stefan Indlekofer and styled in Prada by Nicola Knels. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

• Emma Stone doesn’t take any of the credit for her red-carpet looks: “My stylist is really into fashion and she’s great with it. So for me in my closet I have a lot of jeans, and T-shirts and sweaters. I mean, I kind of, operate in that area most days.” [FabSugar]

• Here’s a preview of Opening Ceremony’s Olympics-inspired Adidas capsule collection, on sale next month. [Elle]

• Stella McCartney’s VIP guests traveled in hybrid cars from the designer’s studio to her resort presentation earlier this week. What, no party buses? [NYP]

• Chris Benz, Nicholas K., and Rebecca Minkoff are among the United States’ nominees for the International Woolmark Prize — a worldwide competition that fêtes emerging talent for their use of merino wool. [Woolmark Prize]

• Model Madison Headrick on walking exclusively for Prada this past fashion week — her very first show: “It was literally the longest 60 seconds of my life … The runway just kept going and going … As I turned the corner to go back backstage I was like ‘Woohoo! We did it, guys!’ … All the other models were looking at me like, ‘This is the 47th show I’ve done this season.’ It was silent — like crickets!” [WWD]

Us Weekly would also like you to know that Erin Heatherton and Leonardo DiCaprio are “still going strong.” They ate lunch together, stopped by an event at some NYC hotspot or other, and held hands! [Us]
