50 Cent’s son, Sire Jackson, is already pretty much set for life. After all, his dad is reportedly worth $140 million, making him one of hip-hop’s wealthiest figures. But as it goes with the children of the rich, the toddler just came into even more money.
In an interview with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez, 50 (aka Curtis Jackson) let it slip that his two-year-old just inked a modeling deal with headphone company KidzSafe for $700,000. And what will a child so young do with such a hefty sum of money? Absolutely nothing, 50 says – at least, not until he is 18 and he can access the cash, which will be put into a trust.
Sire is 50’s son with model/host/designer and all-around stunner Daphne Joy. It appears that KidzSafe is affiliated with 50’s SMS Audio company, so it’s no wonder the two-year-old got such a sweet deal. Sire is admittedly adorable, and as Mr. Jackson told Martinez, “He’s super cute, you gotta pay for it.” We guess $700,000 ain’t much to pay for beauty – especially when your dad’s electronics company is footing the bill.
Vogue Germany managed to excite last month, creating four fabulous covers featuring model-of-the-moment Anna Ewers. But the magazine has let standards slip with its April follow-up. French model Aymeline Valade, clad in a show-stopping creation from Armani Privé‘s Spring Haute Couture collection, stars on the cover which falls unexpectedly flat. Shot by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Christiane Arp, forum members are decidedly split on their opinions of the image.
Leave it to our feisty forums to tell it like it is. “My first reaction when I saw this was Medusa!” announced Nymphaea within seconds of the cover surfacing.
“Oh, this is awful! Especially after last month‘s lovely covers, this is a huge let down,” added KateTheGreatest, not feeling the cover either.
Moofins was quick to comment, “The hair is a tragedy. The layout is a tragedy. This cover is dismal.”
Also sharing the same sentiments was marsnoop2 who echoed, “This is just ugly. Really damn ugly all around. I find no redeemable qualities at all.”
Miss Dalloway had a different opinion, however. “I absolutely love this cover, if it was any other model, I might not be sold on the styling, and the hair! But Aymeline totally owns it, and pulls it off,” she enthused.
“The first time I love a Vogue Germany cover. Love the colors and that hair. Simple and beautiful without trying it too hard,” Housseyin complimented.

“For three decades, Patrick Demarchelier has shaped the way the world sees fashion and beauty,” said Nicole Purcell, president, CLIO, in a press release. “Capturing essential qualities of his subjects with boundary-pushing photography, his work presents a timeless vision of the art and industry of fashion.”
The CLIOs is an international awards competition that launched in 1959 to celebrate high achievement in advertising across a variety of sectors, including fashion, sports, entertainment, music and health care. The Image Awards, now in its second year, is an extension of the CLIOs and recognizes creative work in fashion, beauty and retail.
This year’s panel of judges include Eran Cohen, chief marketing officer at Diane von Furstenberg; Patti Cohen, executive vice president of global marketing and communications at Donna Karan International New York; Doug Lloyd, founder and creative director at Lloyd & Co New York; Michael Morelli, vice president of advertising and group creative director at Ralph Lauren; Dave Peterson, creative director and owner at PMH; Patrick Ramsey, creative director at AERIN; Tim Tareco, vice president of visual merchandising, industrial design and special events at MAC; Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, fashion photographers and Catherine Walsh, chief communications officer at COTY.
“The CLIO Awards were already considered very prestigious when I started photographing for British Vogue and Elle 30 years ago,” said Demarchelier in a press release. “To receive the CLIO Image Lifetime Achievement Award is a very big honor. I am very happy to receive it.”
After several decades posing for brands like Ralph Lauren, Tyson Beckford has found his true calling. The hunky model is packing up his stuff and heading to Las Vegas for his new gig as the celebrity host of the Chippendales this season.
From April 30 to May 24, Beckford will take the stage at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino to help host the steamy show, hopefully in the traditional Chippendales garb of dress pants, a bow tie, collar and cuffs – no shirt. “These guys provide a flirty and sexy yet playful experience for women, and being a part of that party each night just seems like fun,” Beckford told Peopleof his latest engagement.
We can only hope for a Magic Mike-style seduction from Mr. Beckford to the tune of “Pony” at some point during the show – and that someone gets it on video.
Sometimes all it takes is just one element to ruin an otherwise strong cover photo. Vogue China‘s latest installment featuring Freja Beha Erichsen is a perfect example. Photographed by Craig McDean wearing Louis Vuitton, there’s something about Erichsen’s cover that was really bugging forum members.

“Oh man, horrible. The makeup isn’t doing her any favors,” Nymphaea declared.
“Oh dear!! It doesn’t even look like Freja. The clumped mascara and glossy lips just makes it worse. Quite arguably the worst cover I’ve seen under Angelica Chueng. And worse still, McDean shot this,” disapproved Benn98.
MON wasn’t feeling the cover either. “I’m not that fond of the angle. This doesn’t give her beauty any justice,” he slammed.
“The makeup is the only thing to blame. Flat cover obviously, but as Vogue China likes to put the least attractive photo on the cover, I still look forward to the whole ed,” said HelaFav5, shifting the negativity slightly.
The rest of our forum members soon began to disagree. “I like it, I like the makeup, and the hair, she looks slightly different than usual,” admired Miss Dalloway.
Gossiping was quick to enthuse, “This is cool and super chic, love the styling!”

Osbourne made her first appearance since throwing Fashion Police the deuces on CBS The Talk yesterday, perched around the table right next to her mother, host Sharon Osbourne. Kelly offered a short comment on her departure from the E! show, which she says comprised “the five best working years of my life.”
“I am so grateful for the experience, I can’t even. Working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible,” she said. “I learned so much and you know, I’m excited for my future.”
