Louis Vuitton's Signs 16 Year Old Stunner...

A Zimbabwean-born, British-raised sixteen-year-old model has been chosen as the new face of Louis Vuitton, starring in the maison's fall/winter advertising campaign.

Discovered only last year, fresh-faced Nyasha Matonhodze has already starred in a handful of magazine editorials, including some big-name magazines such as Teen Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and has walked in dozens of runway shows.

Upon learning that she had been selected as one of the stars of the upcoming Vuitton campaign, Nyasha told the Telegraph, "My eyes filled up with tears and I thought 'Lord you are lucky!' It didn't actually hit me until I was sat in a Rolls Royce sitting eye-to-eye with [famed fashion photographer Stephen] Meisel." Click HERE to read more and see more pics.

I haven't decided whether or not I'm feeling this song yet. Right now, I'm leaning towards no. But I'll tell you what, this girl works harder on her dance moves than anybody else out right now. WOW.

VOGUE Italia's Tribute to Black Beauties...

Vogue Italia has continued to celebrate black models with a vibrant editorial in the glossy's May issue.

A tribute is due to the woman whose skin tone ranges from alabaster to mahogany to smooth onyx, who can flawlessly carry any makeup look -- from gold dusted lids to fuchsia blush to ripe purple and pink glosses. These pages pay homage to the versatile woman whose hair can oscillate from a tightly coiled and coifed Afro, to sleek layers, to a slicked back pixie cut in a matter of minutes. To the divine woman whose enviably full lips, strong, white teeth, and delightful smile have been known to electrify the hearts of many. To the siren whose smooth, velvety skin blocks the sun yet remains supple and unblemished with the passage of time.

Ooh! The Next Designer Up at Target? MISSONI.

via One is a multigenerational family-owned Milanese label hip enough to get the likes of Juergen Teller and Peter Blake to collaborate on its spring 2011 advertising campaign. The other is a Minneapolis-based behemoth brand which dresses multiple generations of American families. One would be Missoni, the other Target, and come fall—September 13 through October 22, to be precise—the 400-plus fruits of their collaboration (the biggest to date, apparently) will hit Target stores nationwide, the latest in a long line of couplings for the retailer (Proenza Schouler and Rodarte among them). Everything from clothes (women’s, men’s, kids'), to bed sheets, to enough dinnerware to set the table for colazione, pranzo, and cena—all in plenty of Missoni’s swirls, zigzags, and near-hallucinogenic florals. “It’s been a fantastic experiencce, " says Angela Missoni, seen here working on Missoni's fall 2011 collection, shown in February, “one we are eager to share with families across the United States.”

WATCH: Alexander McQueen's Exhibit at the Met...

The Cut got a special private tour this week of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's new exhibit "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty"— and it's as good as you could imagine. Curator Andrew Bolton says it was nearly impossible to whittle the exhibit down to about 100 looks, which include the designer's hits ranging from his famous bumster pants to armadillo shoes. Most of the pieces aren't even behind glass, so you can finally get an up-close view of McQueen's iconic work made from truly unique materials such as medical slides, barbed wire, and razor-clam shells. The exhibit runs through July 31. Watch their video to see more of the clothes and the Met's stunning installation.

WATCH: The Met Gala Red Carpet...

During the Met Gala red carpet, two names continued to ring out: Alexander McQueen and Osama Bin Laden. The former, obviously, is the focus of this year's Costume Institute Gala tribute. The latter was unavoidable, as news of his death was barely 24 hours old. NYMagazine asked a few celebs about their memories of the late designer Alexander McQueen.

The Costume Institute's Gala & Exhibit Honors Alexander McQueen

A general view at the press preview for the "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" Costume Institute exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2011 in New York City.

The spring 2011 Costume Institute exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, is on view May 4 through July 31. The exhibition celebrates the late Mr. McQueen's extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded our understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the Museum's Costume Institute Benefit takes place on Monday, May 2, 2011. The evening's Honorary Chairs are Fran├žois-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek, and the Co-Chairs are Colin Firth, Stella McCartney, and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue. This fundraising event is The Costume Institute's main source of annual funding for exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements.

"Alexander McQueen was best known for his astonishing and extravagant runway presentations, which were given dramatic scenarios and narrative structures that suggested avant-garde installation and performance art," said Andrew Bolton, Curator, The Costume Institute. "His fashions were an outlet for his emotions, an expression of the deepest, often darkest, aspects of his imagination. He was a true romantic in the Byronic sense of the word – he channeled the sublime."

Mariah Carey Delivers Twins! Congrats to Her & Nick...

The twins have been named! Moroccan Scott (the baby boy who has Nick's middle name) and Monroe (the baby girl, no middle name because Mariah doesn't have one) 

April 30th is double the pleasure for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Not only did they welcome twins, but the couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary too!

Carey, 42, delivered the babies Saturday at 12:07 p.m. ET at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles. Carey's representative, Cindi Berger, confirmed the births to the Associated Press, saying the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 lbs. 3 oz., and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5 lbs. 6 oz., and was 19 inches.

Congratulations to them both :)
