Cara Delevingne is all set to jump start her career in Hollywood – almost a week ago we got a glimpse at her costume for the DC Comics movie Suicide Squad, and she looks almost unrecognizable alongside Margot Robbie (from The Wolf of Wall Street), Will Smith and Jared Leto (who plays the Joker, missing here in the teaser).

We now hear that she’s bagged yet another role for an upcoming sci-fi thriller from the director that bought us the Scarlett Johansson starrer Lucy last year. We can’t wait to see what the model-of-the-moment has for us to offer in front of the silver screen.

Rumour has it that former One Direction star Zayn Malik is collaborating with resident music sensation, Kanika Kapoor for a song on an upcoming movie. It will be an interesting mix to see the two collide.

A genius app

Online shopping doesn’t have to be boring anymore! What if we tell you that you could log on to a social network where you could recommend fashion to your friends, take a peek at the closets of other stylish women around the globe, snap a picture of that cute cocktail purely because you were attracted to its blush pink colour and the app would find you dresses to match that delicious hue? – It could only be done by Net-a-porter.com!

In a report to Forbes, CEO Natalie Massenet said, “The app also boasts image recognition – upload a photo of a little black dress you’ve spotted on the street, and Net-a-Porter’s technology will do its best to match the look to an item sold by one of the more than 350 lines carried by the retailer.

“It’s like Shazam, for shopping,” Massenet said. “Women will be shopping off each other. There’s so much complexity, trying to teach a computer to act like a human eye, but sometimes it’s freakishly accurate.”
