They’re models living charmed model lives, but there’s still stuff that dampens their spirits.
We’re fearful our favorite magazines are going to be overrun with identical models exhibiting more mutated proportions than Barbie.
Fashion week is almost upon us. Your Instagram is freaking out about it – the blurry runway shots, the humblebrag selfies and the same-old #regrams from Style.com. One set that has a permanent VIP pass, enviable inner circle, and sneak peek at the clothes before they even hit the runway, are the models. But even the world’s most beautiful people can be guilty of selfie overshare. See below for 13 models, from the street style mavens and party circuit regulars to the ramen guzzlers and beauty bandits, you need to follow before Thursday – and who you’ll actually want to keep following after Fashion Month is all over.
Coco Rocha is the coolest.
Selfie-takers everywhere: There’s hope for you yet. Everybody’s looking for a big break these days, and now you can use your Insta feed and pouting-at-a-mirror skills to land a Next Management modeling deal.
Enough already, Miranda Kerr, we get it. While commoners tread through the airport in whatever abomination they slept in the night before, you arrive looking as if you’ve just stepped off set. Between this and boasting Orlando Bloom as your hubby, you are utterly cruel.
We’re not proud of being tempted to launch a diatribe against a bunch of 12-year-olds, but when they take to Instagram to criticize Georgia May Jagger’s gap-toothed grin, we get a little prickly. In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, the model gets candid about her signature pearly whites, sharing some adorably misguided insecurity
This could be the beginning of a breakthrough for models under 18 working in New York state. This morning, we got a triumphant dispatch from the Model Alliance, the advocacy organization founded by model and activist Sara Ziff, announcing that state Senators have agreed to propose legislation that will combat exploitation and unfair treatment of child models. About time, right?
If you’re among the 103,000 people that have already liked Miranda Kerr’s Instagram photo of herself doing a backbend on the beach, then you already know the model is a pro at doing yoga in a bikini. But did you know that she’s dedicated enough to attempt it in an Hervé Léger bandage dress, too?
I may be from a city (Toronto) that’s little more than a hop, skip, and a jump away from New York, but the big, invisible border that separates one from the other means that I, like other non-citizens, can’t just waltz in and get a job at my local Starbucks. It also means that I, like hundreds of thousands of degree-holding, “highly skilled” businesspeople, computer scientists, and engineers, am lumped into the same category as fashion models when it comes to crazy-competitive US visas. “Huh”, you ask? Precisely.
We’ve never really paid much attention to Kate Moss’ misaligned eyes (probably because she and her photog friends do a great job at hiding that particular quirk). Well, the eyes are on full display on her latest Vogue UK cover.
Congratulations are in order for Natasha Poly and her husband, Dutch businessman Peter Bakker, who are expecting their first child together! Click through to see the first photo of her baby bump.
Lauren Hutton landed the cover of Net-A-Porter’s online mag, The Edit, but it’s really her interview that caught our eyes. The 69-year-old model speaks candidly about too-thin models and mean girls, and is just so refreshingly BS-free.
Happy Hump Day, ladies! Here’s a look at some hunky and half-naked male models.
Andrej Pejic is taking on the design world, one t-shirt and shoe at a time.
Miranda Kerr was just reportedly dropped as a Victoria’s Secret Angel! But before you get your panties all up in a bunch, here’s why losing the title means little to nothing for the model.
Guess may not have the prestige of Chanel or the street cred of Alexander Wang, but man oh man do they ever know how to cast their models. From Anna Nicole Smith to Claudia Schiffer, the denim brand has propelled a stellar group of faces to stardom over the years. And now, they’re taking to the web to find the next Guess Girl to join the pack. Could it be you?
The issue of skinny and underage models in the industry has long been an important and controversial topic, and this week, former Vogue Australia editor Kirstie Clements blew the doors wide open with several accounts of girls starving themselves to get to a “Paris thin” look in her new book The Vogue Factor. On Wednesday evening, we caught up with Paper‘s Mickey Boardman at Joe Fresh‘s one year anniversary party for their Fifth Avenue flagship store (more on that later), and as per usual, Boardman had a lot to say.
Former Vogue Australia editor Kirstie Clements is continuing her press rounds to promote her book The Vogue Factor, or what we’re calling “the Vogue exposé“. On Wednesday, she appeared on Entertainment Tonight, and delved into more the details of her book.
Ireland Baldwin sure is making a splash in the modeling industry. The 17-year-old daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin signed with IMG back in March, and basically flipped her dad the bird with her debut spread in the New York Post.
