Lindsey Wixson took over a year off from modeling to let her foot heal. What was her "day job" during that time?

Correct! Wrong!

"I had to take a year and a half off — from 2017 to 2018 — because of some ligament tears in the ball of my foot, which were caused by wearing heels," she told The Daily Summer. "I took my sabbatical to create more of my own pottery, which I haven’t had a chance to do in a while. I would like to get back into that." After a brief sojourn to Seattle, Wixson headed home to Kansas and got a job at a restaurant. "I worked there as a barback from April to August 2018, and after starting out working five-hour shifts, I was able to work up to seven-hour shifts, walking around with sneakers on the concrete. That was actually when I decided that I was really sad about not modeling, and I wanted to do it again and give it a shot."

Which of these designers/brands has NOT collaborated with Target on a capsule collection?

Correct! Wrong!

Target is celebrating 20 years of designer collaborations (known as the Design for All program) by re-issuing 300 pieces from past collections. Considering the retailer has worked with some huge names — including Rodarte, Missoni, Zac Posen, and Victoria Beckham — this is sure to be a massive hit. Additionally, the Design for All program will be honored with a Rizzoli book in September, and an exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in October. The limited-edition collection will be available in stores and online September 14.

Jacobs is also designing a multimedia activation for the VMA’s red carpet. The 2019 MTV VMAs will take place August 26 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.

Which car company is angry with Philipp Plein over an Instagram post?

Correct! Wrong!

Philipp Plein received a cease and desist letter from Ferrari after he posted a video to his personal Instagram showing off his cars with a pair of his shoes on the hood. Naturally, Plein posted the letter — which requests he remove the video within 48 hours — to Instagram, accusing the car company of blackmail. He says he will not remove said video, and will instead consider legal action himself unless he receives an apology from Ferrari CEO Louis C. Camilleri.

Stephanie Seymore is on the August cover of Vogue Italia. How many years has it been since she last covered the publication?

Correct! Wrong!

Claudia Schiffer and Stephanie Seymore cover of Vogue Italia for the first time in 25 and 32 years, respectively. ”The concept was to take the framework of some of Helmut Newton’s most seminal studio shoots, especially the ‘auto-portraits,'” explains photographer Collier Schorr. “The women in these photographs by Newton were ‘making’ their own portraits in that very brief moment that they are looking at themselves in mirrors and releasing the camera’s shutter with a cable release. The idea for my story evolved into me stepping into the shoes of Helmut Newton and being shown in the mirrors’ reflections, photographing Claudia and Stephanie.”
