Did you watch Dancing with the Stars last night? If not, shame on you. Haven’t you heard it’s the best lineup yet? They’ve tapped the usual athletes, Home & Away stars, and (music to our ears) supermodels including Ashley Hart. (more…)
OK, someone has GOT to stop this Vitalii Sediuk guy.
Last week, he caused a ruckus before the Balmain show when he attempted to pull Kim Kardashian down to the ground by her legs. But it seems that Sediuk can’t stop, won’t stop acting a fool and has set his sights on another celebrity PFW showgoer, Ciara. As the “Body Party” singer posed for pictures outside the Valentino show, a thong-clad Sediuk came over to join her in a photo and got way too close. He’s pictured snuggled up against the singer, and we’re pretty sure his junk at least touched her leg. *Shudder*
When a curious TMZ reporter asked why he would do such a thing, he replied, “It’s a portrait,” pointing to his leg, on which he’d painted the words “Ban in USA but I rock Chanel” (whatever that means), before sending his regards to Kim Kardashian. Ick.
Kris Jenner is hell-bent on making her youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie, as famous as their older half-sisters, and it seems like she’s succeeding. Kendall’s been pretty much embraced as a high-fashion model in spite of (because of?) her famous name. Kylie apparently has aspirations in the music industry, which we don’t doubt she will achieve, well, because she’s a Jenner. But while the fashion world has acquiesced to the Kardashian-Jenner allure, the literary world is not so charmed by the family’s efforts to insert themselves into every kind of media there is.
The sisters’ YA novel, Rebels: City of Indra has been out for three months and has sold only 13,000 copies. Maybe Kendall and Kylie’s fans aren’t the reading types — or perhaps it’s because the book is legitimately bad. Just how bad?
We combed through Amazon.com reader reviews to find out why people are saying Kendall and Kylie’s book is so terrible. And it’s not just blind Kardashian hatred — the characters aren’t complex, the plotline has been done and the writing itself is quite awful. But don’t take it from us. Let a few disgruntled readers tell you exactly how they felt about the Jenners’ authorial debut. (more…)
Fashion Month is wrapping up, and while we’re always excited to see familiar faces grace the runway, we’ve got our eyes peeled for the next big model. One particular girl that has our forum buzzing is Aya Jones, a new face at Paris’ Silent Models and at New York’s The Lions.
From the moment she set foot on the Prada runway last week, Aya has pretty much enthralled our forum members, who are already predicting big things for the 5-foot-10-inch beauty. As Mr-Dale wrote, “She was the highlight of the show for me. Exquisitely beautiful.”
HeatherAnne agreed, “Same. Not many standouts, but she was certainly one of them. Stunning girl.” For TheoG, it was love at first sight: “She stole the show for me, I instantly wanted to know who she was.”
The gravy train kept running for Aya throughout Paris Fashion Week. She appeared on runways for Paco Rabanne, Nina Ricci, Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, Giambattista Valli, Sacai and Maison Martin Margiela. Not bad for a newcomer.
It seems like this gorgeous girl is really going places. The only problem? She doesn’t appear to be *too* active on social media. We peeked at her Instagram account (@iamayajones) and there are only three photographs. But we have a feeling there will be many, many more to come!
Over 10 years ago, Dove started the conversation about “real beauty” to help create a world where beauty is a source of confidence. Today, the brand announced that it will be releasing a new film titled Legacy as part of the Dove Self-Esteem Project, which aims to reach 15 million young people by the end of 2015. The film shows how important it is for women to see the beauty within themselves, so that those positive thoughts and feelings can be passed on to the younger girls in their lives.
In the clip above, mothers and daughters wrote two lists; what they like and dislike about the way they look. In the end, it is revealed that the daughters’ lists are similar to their mothers’ lists, which shows how connected the girls are when it comes to their feelings on beauty and self-image and how their mothers influence these thoughts.
Naomi Campbell is hands down the best thing about The Face. Her stern advice to young models and take-no-sh•t attitude really makes the show so entertaining. If there’s anything the supermodel knows (besides modeling and posing), it’s drama, and she’ll be putting her skills to the test with the new acting gig she’s lined up.
Naomi has been tapped for a role on Empire, a Fox series about a record label exec and his family. She will have a recurring role on the show, starring alongside Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. Her character, Camilla, is dating the son of the label’s owner (Howard), poised to inherit the company. Apparently, Naomi is a natural at the acting thing. Producer and co-creator Lee Daniels calls her “a beautiful actress,” noting that she is “underrated.” Hmm.
Lee and Naomi are friends, so he may be a little generous with his words, but part of modeling is about playing a character, so if Naomi can tap that mood and make Camilla believable without delivering a choppy performance, we’re pretty sure she’s going to nail it.
Will you be watching Naomi on Empire?
