Oh, I see. You thought you could win The Face competition by appealing to Naomi Campbell’s softer side, tugging at her British heart strings and one-upping each other on who had the worst childhood? Nope, WRONG. More
America’s Next Top Model, the huge reality competition spearheaded by Tyra Banks has released their very first perfume named, Dream Come True. It’s a sweet fragrance, full of red currant, honeydew, pink freesia,Â pink sugar, tahitian vanilla, and much more. Perfect … More
Well, this is hilarious. While on a plane yesterday, model Melissa Stetten found herself seated next to some dude named Brian who kept trying to pick her up using all of the most tried and true methods: talking about how it was divine intervention that they sat next to each other, bragging about what a good, down-home guy he is, and meanwhile dropping hints about how heâ€™s maybe kind of famous by talking about a project he worked on with Kurt Russell.
To amuse herself during this grueling ordeal (and it is grueling to be stuck on a plane with some douchebag that you canâ€™t escape), Stetten live-tweeted the whole ordeal. More
Isn’t Danish model Christian Brylle just the daintiest, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen? Sometimes I see him on the subway platform in Williamsburg and get all faint-feeling. What a face! More
Rihanna‘s been spotted around town with a new man on her arm, and he’s 21-year-old pretty boy Dudley O’Shaughnessy. The pop star chose Dudley to star in a music video, and after hitting it off, the two palled around London. So, are they a new couple or just a fling? Either way, here are five things to know about Dudley: More
Ugh, it’s almost like the fashion industry isn’t even reading our blog posts lamenting the sexualization of underage models. That can’t possibly be true, though, so what’s the explanation for this swimsuit campaign featuring 15-year-old Kendall Jenner? More
Hereâ€™s the thing about an â€śAll Starsâ€ť season of Americaâ€™s Next Top Model: it implies a level of self-awareness that this show and its contestants lack. I mean, by now Tyra Banks and her models should be conscious of the reality show tropesâ€”and yet they continue to talk as though theyâ€™ve never been humiliated on national television before. Wednesday nightâ€™s episode began with all the women talking about how they deserve to win and this is a competition and theyâ€™re not here to make friends. (OK, no one actually said that last bit, but it was implied.) â€śBrittany going home let me know that this is seriously a competition,â€ť Dominique intoned. Yes, one model will go home every week. My head exploded, too. More
This photo of what appears to be the perverse act of Lindsay Lohan making out with her own mother was taken at mom Dina Lohan‘s 49th birthday party. The rest of the Lohan clan was there, too — Michael Jr., Cody, and Aliana, who made her first public appearance since rumors of a potential modeling-related plastic surgery procedure and/or eating disorder began circulating. In photos taken that night, 17-year-old Ali looks frighteningly thin as she swims in her clothing against a backdrop of various celebrities. More
It’s been quite a week for celebrity siblings in the modeling industry: the famous sis of the day isn’t Ali Lohan, by 14-year-old Kylie Jenner, youngest member of the Jenner/Kardashian clan. Kylie made her runway debut yesterday, modeling in the show for Avril Lavigne‘s line, Abbey Dawn (we’re still waiting to see men’s ties make that third comeback). More
When I posted this gallery of Ali Lohan modeling in a manner I felt was inappropriate for a teenage girl, several commenters told me, essentially, to lighten up. One compared Ali’s photos to the Toddlers and Tiaras toddler-prostitute scandal of the same week — in her opinion a much greater crime. I definitely agree that there are degrees of offense when it comes to the exploitation of young girls. However these skimpy-clothes and lingerie photos, taken from Ali’s Next Model Management profile, seem indisputably inappropriate fare from a high schooler. More
The more we find out about 17-year-old Ali Lohan‘s new modeling career, the more disheartened we feel. First there were allegations of plastic surgery and extreme weight loss, and now we see that the fruit of Ali’s labors have added over-sexualization to the list of offenses.Her first job, for the jean brand PRVCY, has her looking all pouty with her midriff bared and her ass in the air. Appropriate behavior from a minor, no? More
To say Kellan Lutz is the new face of Abbot + Main would be a bit disingenuous: really, he’s the new abs of Abbot + Main. This ad is so steamy (your grandma taught me that word) I think I might blush. That girl isn’t wearing any pants! Honey, your epidermis is showing!
You guys, Ford model DaJe Barbour is both beautiful and geeky. The green-eyed darling from Chicago was scouted on his very first day of college, where he was all set to become an IT guy. Could you imagine calling tech support because your computer’s acting up only to have this guy show up? More
Do you guys all know about Emma Watson‘s younger brother, Alex Watson? He was thrust into the spotlight when he joined his sister for a Burberry print campaign last year, and the 18-year-old has been modeling ever since. Look how attractive this kid is, right? Alex was interviewed by The Independent a little while back. This is what he had to say about his future career goals: More
