10-year-old Romeo Beckham stars alongside two deathly still grown-up models in this new Burberry ad. Beckham's collar-popping enthusiasm sits uneasily alongside the motionless models, making this kind of look like a lost sequence from Mannequin, don't you think? [YouTube]

  • Stylist Mary Alice Stephenson helped organize a free event for families affected by Hurricane Sandy with the Lower East Side Girls' Club. Designer brands including Prabal Gurung, Calvin Klein, Alexis Bittar, and Jason Wu donated apparel, shoes, and jewelry, and the girls were invited to take anything they wanted for free. Stephenson is planning similar events for families in the Rockaways and Staten Island. "First, we went in with tampons, batteries, Depends, and now they will be pampered," says Stephenson. [The Cut]

  • André Leon Talley describes what it was like to see Mick Jagger do a quick wardrobe change into a black ostrich feather cape for the Rolling Stones concert encore:

    It was a glam moment; Jagger knew just how long to work it, envelop it, and then, like Dietrich in Blonde Venus, threw the cape to the ground and continued his dressage-a-go-go prancing. The three-song encore began with a full choir, singing "You Can't Always Get What You Want," moving into "Jumping Jack Flash," and, finally, "Satisfaction." As I hurried behind Rachel Feinstein on my way out, I had a moment with Johnny Depp, who dressed like a great sheriff, with tailored suit, and cowboy hat, out of a great American western.

  • Caitlin Holleran, the 16-year-old American model who walked as a worldwide exclusive in her debut season for Saint Laurent, wasn't paid anything for her trouble. Being a worldwide exclusive means that the model has to turn down other opportunities to walk in competing brands' shows during a given runway season. "We didn't get anything," says Holleran, who asked her mother for a YSL lipstick for Christmas this year so she'd have something by which to remember the show. [WWD]
  • Kate Upton went on a cruise from Tierra del Fuego to the islands off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula for a rumored Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition cover shoot. TMZ is making a big deal out of the meteorological daring of all this — the subhed screams, "35 Degrees BELOW ZERO." Which, please note, it is summer in the southern hemisphere now, and the average summer temperature in one of those just-north-of-the-Antarctic-circle island chains, for example the South Shetland Islands, is actually around 1.5 Celsius, or 35 Fahrenheit. [/antarcticnerdout] And from behind-the-scenes photographs, it looks as though Upton spent most of the shoot swaddled in a fur cape that she dropped for the moment every bikini picture was taken. Still jealous she probably got to see some Adelie penguins, though. [TMZ]
  • This is cool: ShowStudio has added Giles Deacon's "Troubador" dress from fall-winter 2007 to its Design Downloads trove of free clothing patterns. Previously, Design Downloads has offered free patterns from designers including Alexander McQueen, Yohji Yamamoto, and John Galliano. The instructions can be sparse and the patterns can be complex, but the pattern archive should provide plenty of inspiration for a home sewer who likes a challenge. [Showstudio]
