Julia Roberts gets cozy in Céline on the May cover of WSJ. The actress, who is insistent on the importance of being a mother over anything else, doesn’t see herself as an A-lister: “I don’t consider myself a celebrity, [at least not] how it is fostered in our culture today,” she told the mag. “I don’t know if I’m old and slow, but there seems to be a frenzy to it.” So whatever you do, don’t call the Pretty Woman star a celeb. Or an icon, for that matter! Roberts’ issue will hit newsstands on May 3rd.

It seems like it was just yesterday that that quiet and barely-discussed April issue of Vogue featuring Kimye came out, but now a new issue is upon us. Emma Stone takes on cover duties for their May issue, where she and writer Jason Gay conduct part of their interview at a Build-a-Bear store. As one does. Inside the issue, her pal and Met Ball date Alber Elbaz gushes to the mag about The Amazing Spiderman 2 star, saying: “I feel about Emma that she’s a close cousin rather than a celebrity I have to dress,” Elbaz tells them. Awwww...

Our bank accounts are already fearing the latter... The app was created by design firm Fueled and can be downloaded for free starting today through Apple iTunes. Happy shopping!

Prince George spent a little time meeting new pals over the weekend as Mum and Dad (Kate Middleton and Prince William) took the little guy to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia to spend some QT with a bilby, which is also named George. A bilby, we've learned, is a cross between a rabbit and a rat. How lovely. The Royal family is continuing their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.

We recently rang up Hungarian mod Vanessa Axente to discuss her Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria ads, in which she’s bedecked in a breezy, pleated white frock. The CK fave (she stars in the Calvin Klein Collection and Calvin Klein Jeans ads for Spring, too) also dished on her gelato kick and balancing her catwalk jaunts with going to her high school classes...

You’re fronting Calvin Klein’s Endless Euphoria campaign, along with a slew of other CK campaigns. Very exciting!
I was so happy when I got the call for the [Endless Euphoria] campaign. I always loved the Euphoria campaigns with Natalia Vodianova, so it’s a big pleasure to get to have one of my own.

What was it like working with Francisco Costa on myriad CK projects?
He’s always so positive! It's very easy to work with him. He feels like family; I never feel uncomfortable. He just smiles all the time.

Do you get recognized a lot, thanks to Endless Euphoria ads?
Well, they just started to put the campaigns out in Hungary, where I live, so we’ll see…

How’s the Hungarian fashion scene?
Hungary’s fashion industry is quite big, but if you travel to bigger fashion cities, I’ll only meet two or three other Hungarian models.  

What is your favorite summer activity?
I like to travel and stay outside all day long, hiking and running. 

What’s your go-to snack in the warmer months?
I love to eat gelato every day, in mango, strawberry, and chocolate.

What is the most euphoric aspect of summer?
Having the freedom to travel! Summer is the only time when I don’t have school. I’m in high school, studying finance. This is my last year—I can’t wait to finish.

Any college plans on the docket?
I think I’m going to wait a few years. I don’t know what I would want to study! But when I'm ready for college, I’ll look at universities in New York or Paris.

Terry Richardson's Model Drama Continues

Tough times for Terry: Yet another model has accused fashion photog Terry Richardson of inappropriate behavior. This time, British model Emma Appleton posted a screenshot to her Twitter and Instagram on Sunday of a message allegedly from Richardson that read, "If I can f--k you I will book you in New York for a shoot for Vogue." Appleton posted the screen shot with the caption, "Um what?" The post has since been deleted from Appleton's Instagram and Twitter. But before deleting her Twitter account altogether, Appleton tweeted, "Beginning to wish I hadn't posted that. It doesn't matter who you are or what the industry is, just be a decent human being...the fact people think this is acceptable blows my f--king mind."

Richardson's rep, Candice Marks, told BuzzFeed the text was "obviously a fake" and denied that the photographer had sent it. Meanwhile, Vogue's communications director Hildy Kuryk told Buzzfeed the magazine had "no plans to work with him in the future" and Richardson's last shoot for the publication was in July 2010, although Vogue Paris used him this past February. Prior to Appleton, models Charlotte Waters, Jamie Peck, Liskula Cohen, and Rie Ramussen also spoke out about the photog's less-savory moments.
