While she does look pretty scared in several of the Karl Lagerfeld-lensed shots, I still love it all the same and according to Casta, Choupette was the perfect co-star. 'She is an unusually beautiful cat, and it was a lovely experience,' she told the title.
In this weird way it feels like your job. It feels like it’s part of what is it to be a designer now but it’s also really important to get out there. We live in an exceptionally communicative time with the Internet and social media and you have to be part of it. You have to engage in it. Otherwise you’re not being a part of your own time.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld looked ready to drop on the cover of i-D's Summer issue and yesterday she welcomed her first baby into the world.
Derek Blasberg was the one to break the news, turning to Twitter to congratulate the new mum. 'Congratulations to proud Momma @RestoinRJulia (And thus, the chicest grannie ever: Carine Roitfeld!) Can’t wait to meet the beautiful baby!' he wrote. So far neither Julia or Carine have released a statement confirming the news or whether the baby is a girl or boy.
The model couldn't look any further than she did in the other cover she's fronting this month for Vogue China, but it really works. This isn't the last cover option available because eight in total will be on offer when the issue hits newsstands on Friday.
Unlike the current penchant for celebrities to do that now cliche naked pregnancy shot, Julia's is actually really good and she has her mother Carine Roitfeld to thank. Rather than going nude, the former Vogue Paris editor styled her in a sheer Alexander McQueen and olive coloured bra. 'Pregnancy's a moment in a woman's life when it's really important to feel seductive,' she told the magazine. 'I loved that my mum dressed me sexy like that.'
As far as her style is concerned, being pregnant hasn't changed anything. 'I still dress how I used to dress and sometimes people look at me weird on the street, as if because I’m pregnant I stop being a woman,' she continued. 'That’s really something I want to make a point of: that I’m going to be a mother but I’m still a woman, I still want to feel good about myself and feel pretty.'
Raf Simons' has always been under the microscope, especially during his time at Jil Sander, but that went to a completely new level when he was confirmed as the new creative director of Dior last month. With all eyes on him in the run up to his debut at Dior for the brand's Haute Couture show in Paris this July, it makes sense that i-D chose him to cover their 'Lights, Camera, Action' summer issue shot by Willy Vanderperre.

Victoria Beckham has been making the cover rounds recently. First up was Numéro Tokyo, then i-D and now the designer has been unveiled as the cover star of British Harper's Bazaar's May issue.
The magazine taps into the excitement surrounding the Queen's diamond Jubilee dedicating the issue to that theme. With that in mind, 'Queen Victoria on conquering the fashion world', is the perfect subject line for the issue. The cover, which marks the second time Beckham has posed for the magazine, was shot by Camilla Akrans in Los Angeles who described her as 'an absolute sweetheart'.

Last week we showed you Karl Lagerfeld's cover for i-D magazine's spring 2012 issue and now, all of the other special covers are out and they're really good. Shalom Harlow, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Carolyn Murphy and Georgia May Jagger are just a few of the faces fronting the new issue that hits newsstands this Thursday.
While the love of all things royal intensified in the run up to last year's royal wedding, it didn't end there. To celebrate the year of the Queen's diamond jubilee, i-D have dedicated their Spring issue to the theme and if there was anyone worthy to cover the issue, it's Karl Lagerfeld. The designer, who shot himself for the cover, refrained from taking off his glasses for the i-D wink and instead sported a playful cover-up over one eye.
I think I can safely say that I was just about the only person that didn't go crazy for Victoria Beckham's March cover of Numéro Tokyo cover but this cover of i-D's 'Whatever The Weather Issue' is by far my favourite cover story from the designer.
In the Josh Olins shot story, Beckham shows off her post-baby body in Rochas and Balmain and in the accompanying editorial she discusses everything from drawing on her own insecurities when creating those much-loved corseted dresses to the content of Harper's wardrobe.
