The fashion industry is by no means all bad, but it does have its moments of being incredibly tone-deaf and out-of-touch, and the latest comes inside the pages of Numéro‘s March issue, which features an “African Queen” editorial. But instead of, you know, hiring a black model, the magazine painted a white model in blackface.
There is no shortage of misconceptions about how much models get paid to walk runway shows during New York Fashion Week. But now, thanks to organizations like The Model Alliance and increased online scrutiny, some of them are starting to get cleared up.
By now, it’s pretty common knowledge that Terry Richardson is a complete and utter sleazeball. Numerous models like Coco Rocha and Jamie Peck have confirmed that he’s a certified creep and his photos are just plain disturbing, yet he still hangs out with the fashion crowd and lands big jobs. The latest endorsement by the industry comes in the form of model Charlotte Free, who defended Richardson and slammed models who’ve spoken up about his sleazy antics on her Tumblr page. Of course, Free’s rant has been deleted, but as we all know, nothing on the Internet is ever deleted.
Baauer‘s song ”Harlem Shake” may be a few months old, but “Harlem Shake” (the dance) is just making its rounds on the interwebs. Even models Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne are getting in on it!
After seeing so many half-naked ladies on the runway and red carpet, we’re kind of jaded to the sight of nipples, sideboobs, butt cheeks, and the like. But Marc Jacobs took nakedness to a whole new level at his fall 2013 show last night by putting 18-year-old Lily McMenamy, daughter of legendary model Kristen McMenamy, in a pair of high-waisted briefs and, well, not much else.
Karolina Kurkova had the displeasure of eliminating the first contestant on The Face last night, and subsequently, pissing off fellow mentor and competitor Naomi Campbell. But Kurkova found that the least enjoyable part of being on a reality show is actually watching herself on TV.
Starting our morning with Michael Kors‘s fall 2013 show is always a good thing, but getting whiplash in the process was perhaps less so. You see, at Kors’ show this morning, about eight models, male and female, were walking the runway at any given time. It was probably due to the fact that the designer was showing a total of 63 looks, and while we would’ve definitely appreciated seeing the looks one by one, Anna Dello Russo was totally fine with it.
The original supers like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Stephanie Seymour still land magazine covers, editorials, and ad campaigns here and there, but they have had to share the spotlight with younger models, celebs, actresses, and sadly, reality stars. Well, Campbell is not going to stand for that, and in an interview with Celebuzz, says that models like her want to take back the mag covers for good.
We follow this model on Twitter and Instagram pretty regularly, but now she’s turning her funny faces and behind-the-scenes snaps into a gig with Australian label Sass & Bide.
Well, it’s confirmed: Kate Upton‘s Super Bowl commercial is definitely aimed towards all the red-blooded males watching the big game. Cars and boobs: they go together like football and Sunday.
Constance Jablonski is in hot water with her agency.
Religion doesn’t get too much air time in the fashion industry unless we’re talking, say, Kate Moss in a nun’s habit or Riccardo Tisci‘s penchant for Catholic imagery. But in the newest issue of Du Jour, Coco Rocha gives a frank account of her experience as a Jehovah’s Witness in an arena where few, if any, share her faith.
As the daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, it’s only fitting that rock royalty Georgia May Jagger fronts H&M‘s newest Rock ’n’ Roll Mansion collection.
Daisy Lowe has been pretty vocal about her body, and uses every opportunity she gets to educate people that no, not all humans are a size zero, and yes, being curvy is a beautiful thing. She’s even designed a clothing line that caters to women with real curves. In Grazia‘s upcoming body issue, the 23-year-old model is at it again, opening up about her battle with her own body image.
At NBCUniversal‘s Winter Television Critics Association Tour in California yesterday, glamazons like Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha, and Padma Lakshmi graced the red carpet. But of course, there can only be one best dressed model.
