Brooklyn Beckham is following in his younger brother Romeo Beckham's footsteps and making his debut as a mod. The younger Beckham already made his modeling debut in Burberry's Spring 2013 campaign. It seems like just yesterday they were in nappies! Brooklyn Beckham, now 15, appears on the cover of Man About Town magazine shot by Alasdair McLellan with a whopping 20-page editorial inside. We have a feeling this little cutie will be keeping the Beckham family's collective good looks alive for quite some time.

Calvin Klein announced today (the best news ever!!!!) that to celebrate the 25th birthday of their ETERNITY Calvin Klein fragrance, they're reissuing their iconic 1995 campaign starring Christy Turlington and Mark Vanderloo. Peter Lindbergh shot the black and white image, which will return to print publications in May. Last month, the perfume got a slight makeover, thanks to a new bottle design that was released to celebrate fragrance's silver anniversary. The original ETERNITY campaign video will also be reissued for digital and in-store marketing, and will complement the refreshed print ads with a retooled version of the 1995 tagline: “Time can’t touch us. Celebrating 25 years.” Genius idea! Now, a new generation of chicettes can cover their bedroom walls with this image.

Will you be hitting the dance floor to Gisele Bündchen this Summer? It could happen. The supermod has recorded a cover of Blondie's "Heart of Glass" for H&M, to be released in May. It's not the first time she's hit the recording studio; the Brazilian beauty covered "All Day and All of the Night" by The Kinks last year to raise money for UNICEF. Mrs. Brady will also be appearing in H&M's Summer campaign and a video is expected to accompany the song. In other news: this December, Karlie Kloss, Kate Upton, and Joan Smalls will be crooning together on a cover of "We Are The World". OK, OK, that last bit is the only April Fool's joke we'll be playing today, but we got you there for a second...

Looking for something to do this Thursday? Model Jacquelyn Jablonski is throwing a cocktail party to support Autism Speaks at Milk. Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 at the door and can be found HERE. The Daily recently got on the phone with Jablonski to find out why the event is so important to the mod, and what guests can expect on Thursday night. See you there!

How did you get involved with Autism Speaks?
I became involved with the charity a couple of years ago. My mom and I researched charities online, because we wanted to be involved with my brother being autistic. He was diagnosed at the age of two, so it’s something that's really close to home. We always wanted to help out, but we never knew how to get involved. Finally, my mom got in contact with a woman at Autism Speaks and explained our story. I have wanted to do an event for so long, but I had no idea where to begin. We did our first one last year, which was a success.

Tell us about your brother.
Tommy is on the severe end of the spectrum. Originally, the doctor told us that he would never talk. It's hard to have a full conversation, because he loses focus and doesn't keep eye contact. But he will come up to you and say, 'I want this, I want that, I want chicken fingers, I want to go to the boardwalk'. I'm really impressed with how much he's grown over the years. I was just home and came from the airport holding my suitcase, and he associates the airport with vacations and Florida, so then all of the sudden he wants to go on vacation. He loves going on rollercoasters; maybe it's the adrenaline rush. He has different obsessions. Another one is chicken fingers; that's why we had them at the first Autism Speaks event I worked on!  

Tommy is 18 now: does he still live with your parents?
Yes, which is why I wish that we could find a way for his school to [continue]. A lot of the parents of his friends wish that the kids could be together because they got used to seeing each other around. It costs a lot of money to have someone watch them around the clock, so it's not easy to organize. I don’t want him to just sit at home, so this is what I'm really trying to find.  There is so much emphasis on the younger kids, but now that my brother is 18, I'm really struggling to figure that out. I want to raise this awareness about this. The numbers are increasing: there are now 1 in 68 children and 1 in 54 boys being diagnosed. It’s a big deal for people having kids to be aware of.

What kinds of silent auction items will be up for bids?
I've slowly been giving little previews online to get people excited! Once again, we have a contribution from Patrick Demarchelier. Last year, he donated a photograph with elephants, and this year, it's a shot of a giraffe in the distance which looks really cool. We’ll have work up from Craig McDean, Greg Kadel, Fabio Chizzola, and more.

How is your agency, Supreme, helping out with the event?
Everyone has been reaching out to all the photographers they personally work with, plus they've been sending invites to their friends and personal contacts. I'm like, 'Send it to everyone that you know; the more the merrier!' They've been a big help. I don’t know how I would do all of this myself: getting organized, doing the invites and everything. 

Last year, you raised $32,000! 
I’m super happy about that! I had no idea what to expect. I was so happy that so many friends came to show their support.

Will Tommy be there on Thursday? 
He’ll definitely be there! I think he liked the attention that he got last year.

It took us a few minutes to make up our mind about this Versace number Katy Perry stepped out in on Saturday night, but the more we looked, the more we liked. Perry attended the MOCA's 35th anniversary gala presented by Louis Vuitton in Los Angeles on Saturday night wearing this sexy black high-necked Versace dress with yellow-lined panels. Show those legs, Katy. Other Angelenos coming out for MOCA's big night included Dita Von Teese, Cameron Silver, Moby, Rodarte's Kate Mulleavy and Laura Mulleavy, and Jane Fonda.
