Amanda Seyfried’s Givenchy Deal: Amanda Seyfried has been announced as the new face of Givenchy’s Very Irresistible fragrance, replacing outgoing spokesmodel Liv Tyler. “It’s an honest collaboration,” Seyfried told WWD of her new gig. “I’m proud to be a part of [the brands I’m involved with] because what they do is really cool, especially Givenchy—they’re so artistic. And I feel like I have a foot in the fashion industry now.” Seyfried has become a fan of the brand in recent years, appearing front row at its fashion show and wearing one of its gowns to perform at the Academy Awards. The campaign, which includes both print and TV spots, will bow in October. [WWD]

Ghesquière’s Second Cover: The fashion world exploded with excitement earlier this week when word of Nicolas Ghesquière’s System magazine article hit the airwaves. But that’s not the only cool magazine he’ll be fronting this month. The former Balenciaga designer will also cover Berlin-based title 032c alongside friend Charlotte Gainsbourg, hitting newsstands today. The magazine’s 38-page Ghesquière-centric spread is a “monument” to the designer’s final season at Balenciaga, which is still on store shelves. He tells the title: “Ideally, I’d like to give myself a six-month break, to travel and discover things. I’m not sure it’ll happen because some interesting projects are on the horizon.” [WWD]

The inaugural outing will feature a smiling Cara Delevingne on its cover, marking the model’s second Vogue cover. Miss Vogue was produced by the adult Vogue UK’s team. It's unknown if the title will grow to boast its own staff like Teen Vogue  has in the United States. [Telegraph]
