Real people subbing for models was one of the big trends of New York Fashion Week for Fall 2014 but Marc by Marc Jacobs is taking that concept to a whole new level with their new campaign. Instead of casting professionals, the brand hosted an open call on Instagram and Twitter, inviting regular people like you and me to submit their best headshot tagged with #CastMeMarc for a chance to appear in the next run of ads. The next time someone tells you social media is a waste of time, just refer to this campaign, which has now transformed the lives of nine people who were plucked from the internet to model for Marc Jacobs.

Cara Delevingne

Last week, Vogue published a profile with Cara Delevingne that was about, among other things, how the model slept through not one but two interviews with the writer. Cara went on the defense, but didn't deny that it happened (look, growing girls need their sleep, OK?). So, when the Telegraph approached her for an interview, Cara's only request was that it be conducted in bed. And the reporter obliged, because who wouldn't want to have a sleepover with Cara Delevingne?

Though the interview's intended purpose was to discuss Cara's Mulberry collaboration, the interview touches on a lot more than style, including sexuality. Cara is extremely open—a quality underlined throughout the interview—so when the conversation veers towards sexuality, she doesn't shy away from discussing it. "I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not," she says. She doesn't elaborate much, but does say, at this point, she'd rather hang out with girls than dudes because "most guys are not like, 'Oh, we should just be mates.'" She clarified, they "just want to have sex with you." That's not all she reveals, though. Like, not at all.

The year of Lupita keeps rolling on with this delightful short from Vogue. The Oscar-winning actress and MTV Style Dreamgirl reveals that after a particularly disheartening trip to New York, she found herself "morbidly disappointed" with the braids she received in an African salon there. The botched job inspired Lupita to ask an aunt of hers back home in Kenya to teach her to cornrow, box braid, and twist—skills she still practices to this day!

Over the weekend, Katy Perry shared pictures from her trip to Dollywood and, TBH, it looks like she had the best time. Like, who cares about amusement park rides when there is an attraction where you can shop Dolly Parton's closet and have items altered to fit you? No one, that's who. From "classy capri pants to chic jackets," Dolly's closet has a lot to offer. Real talk: What do you think Katy bought?

Disclaimer: I used to hate culottes. When this trend emerged in Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler's Spring/Summer 2014 collections, I was devastated. Sure, they're super comfortable, but wide-legged, cropped pants are incredibly hard to wear and are historically uncool. (In fact, the Wiki entry on culottes refers to them as "knee-breeches." *barfing sound*) The longer this trend prevailed, though, the more I began to see it was possible to look decent in a pair of cropped pants, and—gasp—maybe even look cool. Let's just say they've come a long way since our moms wore them in the '90s. So, I decided to round up my favorite culottes at the moment to prove that in 2014, cropped pants don't totally suck.

First up, the most accessible form of the culotte pant: an all-black pair that doesn't overwhelm your silhouette ($63). I also love the pants-disguised-as-a-midi-skirt look, which Free People nailed perfectly in a ditsy floral print ($70). If you want to go with some statement pants, Topshop has a structured orange pair that I'd totally give a try ($100).

Pharrell

If 2014 has taught us anything it's that where there's an awards show, there's Pharrell in an outfit destined to inspire a parody Twitter account. Say hello to @PharrellsUggs, the latest addition to growing group that includes @Pharrellshat and @PharrellsShorts. After winning Video of the Year for "Happy," Pharrell took to the stage in a pair of Fair Isle Uggs. This surprised a lot of people on Twitter but what else would you expect from the person who made shorts acceptable on the Oscars red carpet? Pharrell's just doing Pharrell and staying true to his Etsy-chic, cozy style.

If you watched, like, one minute of the BET Awards Red Carpet coverage, you know it's hot in L.A. The best way to cool down if you're too hot? Forgo a shirt! Just ask Nicki Minaj–she performed at the show in a shirt (IDK if that's what to call it, TBH) made from gold chains. Her hair was long, wavy, and strategically placed. When riding a motorcycle inside you have to take precautions, OK? This is a PG-rated show.

Hey guys, hope you enjoyed your weekend so far. If you're anything like me, you're probably a little pooped from Pride and are curled up in your living room watching the BET Awards. And like me, I'm assuming your favorite part of the BET Awards (or any award show, for that matter) is the live Twitter commentary. I've taken the liberty of rounding up some of our favorite side-by-side style comparisons. Enjoy! In the meantime, I'm gonna head back to watching the feeds and the show. *sips some tea*

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
