>> Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who are celebrating 25 years of collaborating professionally with a retrospective in Amsterdam, say their plans for the future aren't limited to photography. The duo told Nowness in the next 25 years, "We will hopefully have launched five fragrances based on our images and directed a few exciting movies. Or we could be doing yoga, full time, on a mountain in India."
And they aren't the only fashion photographers mulling a foray into film; Ryan McGinley told The Cut that he's been considering doing a feature film for a while: "I'm gearing up towards [a feature film], I'm not there yet. I'm not a writer, but I would write something with somebody. I've been looking at a lot of scripts, but nothing has popped out to me."

>> Miranda Kerr Engaged to Orlando Bloom; Devon Aoki Dating Joseph Gordon-Levitt —Just a couple of days ago, Orlando Bloom's rep confirmed that he and girlfriend Miranda Kerr, who have been together almost three years, are engaged — a look at her ring, here. Now, word comes that another actor and model have paired up: Devon Aoki and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were reportedly spotted kissing at a party Tuesday night in Los Angeles and "telling everyone they were a couple."

Having cast a 47-year-old Elle Macpherson (along with the womanly bodies of Laetitia Casta and Bar Refaeli) to fill out the curvy dress silhouettes on the fall Louis Vuitton runway, Marc Jacobs continues to offer a multigenerational theme for his advertising images—selecting Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova to share campaign duties. Steven Meisel shot all three models in a New York studio made to look like a Hollywood star's old-fashioned dressing room. Turlington, Elson, and Vodianova look perfectly put together dressed in Jacobs's "And God Created Woman" collection of corseted waists and circle skirts with their hair in the same fresh-looking, '50s-style high ponytails from the Vuitton runway. Perhaps reason enough to agree with Vogue's mandate to return to mature, ladylike clothing this fall.
