Sofia Coppola is guest-editing a special issue of W with her former leading lady, Kirsten Dunst, on the cover.

She also enlisted her pal Marc Jacobs to open the doors to his new home in New York. The issue, festooned with the cover line "Summer Pleasures", will be poly-bagged with W's May issue, which comes out on April 21st.

Apparently someone was happy to be named on The Hollywood Reporter's 35 most powerful people in New York media list this year. Anna Wintour, who obviously made the list, attended their party at the Pool Room at The Four Seasons last night in Manhattan to celebrate. Anna was joined by chicsters like Nicole Miller, Jenna Lyons, Zac Posen, Harvey Weinstein, Martha Stewart, Thom Browne, Cynthia Rowley, Susan Lucci, and Alan Thicke at the party. Loving the red, AW!

Carine Or Alex For Joe Zee’s Job At ELLE?

HEARD: Carine Roitfeld could be a strong contender to succeed Joe Zee as creative director at ELLERoitfeld is currently a brilliant editor-in-chief of her own glossy, CR Fashion Book, and she’s vastly respected on the fashion circuit. Her role at ELLE would be similar to what her close pal Stephen Gan does as creative director at Harper’s Bazaar.

But how would ELLE EIC Robbie Myers handle an ex editrix-in-chief in the glossy’s creative director role? Not to mention someone as universally vetted in the fashion biz as la Roitfeld. Carine already has a history with the title, thanks to a stint earlier in her career as a stylist and writer at French ELLE. Should she fill Zee’s shoes, Roitfeld’s role and brand of creativity could be similar to Gilles Bensimon’s role during his tenure at ELLE—an iconic persona with a stellar fashion pedigree.

Should the rumors become reality, Gan and Roitfeld would become even more of a powerhouse duo, at Hearst and beyond. Clearly, Hearst Magazines president David Carey—who has made all the right moves on the editorial checkerboard so farlikes Roitfeld and appointed her global fashion director at Bazaar in October 2012. What’s more, her 2013 documentary, Mademoiselle C, was very well received. With her French accent, heavy-lidded look, and supremely chic silhouette, she’d be an intriguing addition to the reality TV and pundit circuit. This would be quite the interesting move for the saucy editrix because of ELLE’s epic size and global scope and because, let’s not forget, ELLE is historically a French magazine!  

As reported yesterday in this space, top gun creative Alex Gonzalez is also a very likely contender for the role, and for good reason: The visual mastermind and Hearst gem has been superb as executive artistic director at Town & Country and artistic director at Marie Claire. Another advantage is that Gonzalez would seem more compatible to Myers, who lost her creative director and two art directors in past months, than Roitfeld. However, he’s got the intriguing disadvantage of being a couple with his Vogue counterpart, Raul Martinez. That James Carville-Mary Matalin dynamic was sexy in politics, but would it fly, when Anna Wintour is involved? We vote for both.

Lorde does cover duties of the May issue of Teen Vogue, and it's clear she's wise beyond her 17 years from the interview inside. "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that." Lorde wears a red and orange plaid top from Marc by Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 collection on the cover. The May issue of Teen Vogue hits stands on April 29th.

Lindsey Wixson sports short locks for the cover of Vogue Ukraine's May issue, shot by Jeff Bark. The new look is similar to 'The Karlie' but she still owns it in her own way. Will girls be flocking to hair salons asking for 'The Lindsey'? The mod also narrates an i-D video that's a must-see: she walks, err, talks her way through the trickiest names to pronounce in fashion, like Moschino, Erdem, Proenza Schouler, Rei Kawakubo, we could go on...

Little Prince George made another royal appearance with mum and dad in New Zealand on his whirlwind tour today. Kate Middleton wore a navy Rebecca Taylor number, which we're sure was no coincidence since the designer is a New Zealand native. Mum, baby, and Prince William are now in Australia for the second leg of their tour to hold more puppies, shake more hands, and introduce little George to Vegemite. Exhausting!
