Kaia Gerber had so little "life experience" as a young model she relied on others to check her into hotels. The fashion star, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, made her runway debut in a Calvin Klein show at the age of 16 in 2017, and has since gone on to appear in campaigns for the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Jimmy Choo, and Fendi. But in a new cover interview for the June 2021 issue of U.S. Vogue magazine, Kaia reflected on just how green she was when she first entered the industry. "I found myself in situations where I was, like, I actually don't have the life experience that I need to handle this," she shared. "It could be something as small as knowing how to take the bus from the flight to the terminal. Or, I remember, when I started travelling alone, in Paris, my driver had to check me into my hotel room - I couldn't even do it on my own." Though it may have been daunting at first, Kaia soon learned the importance of asking others for help as well as how to express herself. "I started so young that people weren't expecting me to have an opinion about things, and I was fine with that, because I didn't feel comfortable enough in who I was," the 19-year-old mused. "But when I got a little older, I started to wait for someone, especially in interviews, to ask me something other than, 'What are three items in your purse?' I was like, 'You're not asking Adam Driver that, right?' I was waiting to be invited to speak. Eventually, I invited myself. And that was a really freeing feeling." Elsewhere in the chat, Kaia discussed her love of reading and mentioned that she still might enrol in college at some point. "I was one of those kids in preschool who thought they'd go to Columbia one day," she added. "I can always go. I have no problem with being a 50-year-old in college."

Tiger Woods may not have much experience playing the daunting Ocean Course that will host this week's PGA Championship but that did not stop Justin Thomas from reaching out to his friend for pointers ahead of the year's second major. The Ocean Course, which at 7,876 yards will play as the longest major in history, is exposed to coastal weather and the potential for strong crosswinds could put a premium on course management and accuracy off the tee. "I just asked him about the course just in terms of preparing and getting ready," Thomas, speaking during his pre-tournament news conference on Tuesday, said of his talk with 15-times major champion Woods.

The recent decision by five Canadian provinces to change the way they administer the AstraZeneca vaccine should not deter anyone from getting vaccinated, or to regret getting AstraZeneca if they already did, one expert says. Samantha Yammine, a neuroscientist and science communicator, says that with more than a billion vaccines already given out worldwide, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll see any major, common issues develop with other vaccines now.

FKA Twigs has been tapped to star in the campaign for Burberry's new Olympia handbag. Helmed by chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci and photographers Inez and Vinoodh, the imagery features the singer-songwriter in a beige outfit while posing with a light blue leather version of the purse. Make-up artist Kabuki Magic was in charge of Twigs's beauty look and gave her bleached eyebrows and graphic black eyeliner, with Jimmy Paul and Lacy Redway tasked with her transforming her hair into long blonde ringlets. "Riccardo is such a genuine person and I greatly admire his creativity, he has this beautiful way of telling stories through his campaigns and collections," she commented. "It was an incredible experience to work with such a creative team." In addition to Twigs, model Kendall Jenner and music star Shygirl also appear in a series of images and videos set against a minimalistic backdrop of marble and "Burberry beige". "Every time I am asked to be in a Burberry campaign, I feel as excited as the first time I was asked," shared Jenner. "Riccardo has become like family, he is someone who has always encouraged me to be myself, and his support from the beginning has meant the world to me. I am so proud to be a part of this campaign that celebrates the strength of women." Crafted from smooth leather in Italy, the Olympia was designed by Tisci. It is available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colourways including a warm sand, black, burgundy, vibrant marigold yellow, and juniper green. "When designing the Olympia, I was thinking about creating the perfect form of a handbag - something that could capture the essence of femininity. So, for the campaign, I wanted to celebrate three incredible women in my life who embody the power and beauty of feminine energy: FKA Twigs, Kendall and Shygirl," added Tisci. "These women are amazingly talented and confident, and have a natural fierceness and determination to carve their own paths, each freely expressing their originality through their creativity."
