After Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast this past October, Vogue teamed up with the CFDA to raise $1.7 million for relief efforts through their Fashion for Sandy Relief auction, which offered lots like tea with Grace Coddington and an internship stint with DKNY PR Girl Aliza Licht. This month, the magazine is honoring New York’s heroic emergency response teams who got the city back on its feet after the storm, and are still working in the harder hit areas to this day, with a powerful and beautifully-shot editorial in the February issue.
Top model Chanel Iman certainly isn’t a one trick pony. She recently starred in a short film, shot by Norwegian husband-and-wife photographer duo Dusan Reljin and Hilde Pettersen Reljin, called “Chanel Rising”, in which she shows off not onyl her enviable body, but her awesome pole dancing abilities.

Her groundbreaking, controversial all-black issue made major waves, and she’s following it up with a new spread called The Black Allure, which features black models exclusively.
Did you think Chanel Iman was the only person whose name came from fashion? Actually, we kinda did, too. Inventive baby names inspired by the rag trade after the jump.
On Monday, we confessed to being dog people brought you pictures of designers with their four-legged friends. And now, we bring you models with their dogs! We don’t know if it’s because models prefer their dogs to be as petite and cute as they are or because these pictures were taken shortly after these ladies got their dogs, but most of the photos feature really small pooches. Linda Evangelista‘s Enzo is the medium-sized dog in our gallery, but that doesn’t make him any less adorable than the others!
Our industry-specific Power Grid is less than one day old, but it’s already shedding some interesting light on what it means to be a top model in today’s world. Of the top ten models ranked in our grid, six are Victoria’s Secret models, three are supermodels of the old-school ilk, and one is a very lonely Agyness Deyn is holding down the high-fashion court of new faces.
