Kathy Ireland, who appeared in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions, including three covers, has some advice for this year's cover girl, Kate Upton.

Upton needs to set the agenda, not just react to the sudden fame coming her way, Ireland says. “So many young people say, ‘I’m just going to see what happens.’ It’s so much more powerful to make things happen and have a plan.” She should know: She's built a $2-billion-a-year empire and is featured on the cover of the Feb. 27 edition of Forbes.  [Forbes]

Teenagers lined up seven hours ahead of time to wait for Katy Perry to introduce her false eyelashes collection with the European brand Eylure on Wednesday in an Ulta pop-up shop at the Americana at Brand shopping center in Glendale. [WWD]

Italian fashion label MaxMara has named 15-year-old actress Chloe Moretz as its "Face of the Future." She is to be be honored with a dinner in Bevely Hills in June. [Telegraph]

Thursday we mentioned that Raf Simons is leaving Jil Sander (speculation is that he probably is going to Dior). Now word is he is being replaced as creative director at Jil Sander (the label) by Jil Sander (the woman and founder). [Cut]

The Duchess of Cambridge is at the center of a flap over fur. It seems the International Fur Trade Federation posted a picture of her in what seemed to be a fur-lined jacket on its website. This, of course, upset the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which complained to her representatives. They, in turn, insisted that the fur federation remove the post. She was wearing a fake, they said. [Cut]

Instead of naming one best new American menswear designer as it does most years, GQ has named six for 2012, Los Angeles Times writer Adam Tschorn reports. [Los Angeles Times]

Stars including Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Gary Oldman, Demian Bichir, Emily Blunt, John Krazinski, Kimora Lee, Kenneth Branagh, Djimon Honsu and Kristen Davis attended a dinner Wednesday night to benefit international relief organization Oxfam America and the Green Carpet Challenge, which encourages designers to craft celebrity gowns from sustainable fabrics, Times fashion critic Booth Moore reports.
