However, she says she is Gigi's "biggest supporter" and that the two sisters are "not competitive at all." Awww. {Seventeen}

Cara Delevingne speaks candidly about her battle with depression

At The Women in the World Summit in London last weekend, Cara Delevingne revealed that she had been battling depression since she was 15 and that the symptoms did not go away after finding success in modeling. She explained, "In our culture we are told that if we are beautiful, if we are skinny, if we are successful, famous, if we fit in, if everyone loves us, that we'll be happy. But that's not entirely true." The model-turned-actress stated that she ultimately found some peace through yoga, writing and by taking time for herself. {Huffington Post}

LVMH continues to see strong sales growthLVMH has shown strong performance in the first two-thirds of 2015, with revenue up a reported 18 percent — 6 percent on a constant currency basis.

Playboy will no longer have nudity

Starting in March, Playboy will no longer feature nude images of women. Yup, that's right. The magazine, which has a circulation of about 800,000, will feature less processed, more "PG-13" images instead, in an effort to compete with younger outlets like Vice. Will this strategy work? It might: According to executives, web traffic jumped from about 4 million to 16 million when the magazine's website got rid of nudity this August. {The New York Times}

Jessica Chastain is nearly unrecognizable on the cover of W

In the November issue of W, cover star Jessica Chastain talks about wanting to play a villain in a Bond movie and "waiting for that call." But to be perfectly honest, we couldn't get past the bright pink hair and dark brows she sported for the cover. {W}

Oh, to have one of the most influential designers speaking up on your behalf. {T Magazine}
