News of the Day:

+ Our girl Charli XCX teased a snippet of her latest collaboration with producer SOPHIE, and we are SO DOWN for it. No details on the track name, but this song is already a banger.

+ Evan Rachel Wood stars as a Puritan housewife in the creepy music video for Brandon Flowers' new single, "Can't Deny My Love." Re-read our interview with her about the Evan Rachel WOULD campaign for Wildfang here.

+ Soo Joo Park is the first Asian-American spokeswoman for the L'Oreal Paris campaign. Shout-out to all the women in the fashion industry that made groundbreaking history this month!

+ Zayn Malik's departure from One Direction was allegedly inspired by Drake's rap career. We don't know what this means for the future, but we're really hoping that Drake strongly considers signing him to OVO. (Both fellas know a thing or two about heartbreak... and making girls cry.) Late last night, a demo of Zayn's solo work leaked and it'll make what's left of your heart burst into a million pieces.

Jessica Min Anh turned the Hudson River into a 100 metre floating catwalk for the J Spring Fashion Show 2015.
