Not Just a Pretty Face: Supermodel Natasha Poly Sings in Frame Denim’s Campaign Video

It appears that Russian supermodel Natasha Poly is not only gorgeous, but she’s an amazing singer too. Poly serves as the face — and voice — of Frame Denim’s 2015 campaign video and it turns out, she’s great. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, label founder Erik Torstensson asked her what she’d do if she weren’t a model. Her reply? “Well, I was going to be a singer,” she said. All it took was Torstensson listening to an iPhone voice recording of her singing and it was decided she would perform for the brand’s video.

“In the beginning, I rehearsed myself at home and was studying all the lyrics,” said Poly. “I came into the studio and started singing so loudly, and they were like, ‘you are doing great, but it isn’t the style of the music!’ That was a funny moment.” It turns out that music has been a passion of hers since childhood. “All of my cousins went to music school,” she revealed. “One would go every day to music school and her voice was so beautiful. I would all the time try to copy her. I would come back to my mom and say, ‘Why don’t you send me to music school? I think I’m really good. It kind of just stayed with me. It was just something I really liked.”

As for the future? It seems Poly is toying around at the idea of a possible (maybe even “permanent”) music career.  “Yeah, I could!,” she enthused. “I mean I really enjoyed it and I think it could be really great.” 

To get a taste of her gorgeous voice, watch Frame Denim’s “Alert Amour” video above.

Guys Are Spending Thousands on Beard Transplants

Trying to get your hipster hair on fleek but can’t grow a beard? All isn’t lost. According to the New York Times, more men are remedying their hairless situation by opting for beard transplants. Citing the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, a nonprofit organization and leading authority on hair loss and replacement, the Times states that “beard transplants grew from 1.5 percent of all hair restoration procedures performed internationally in 2012 to 3.7 percent in 2014.”

Guys are getting beard transplants to fill patchy areas, look older, come across as more commanding, or simply to live out their dreams of masculine ruggedness previously deferred by pesky genetics. And thanks to advances in the surgery, which wasn’t available a generation ago, hair transplants are looking way better than they used to. These days, instead of implanting plugs of 15 hairs that look noticeably artificial, the hairs are placed individually and you can regrow them and shave them as you would a natural beard. But the procedure will cost you anywhere between $3,000 to $22,000 big ones.

Hey, if women wear weaves and wigs, then why shouldn’t men be able to fake a beard?

The Makeup Application at Issey Miyake Spring 2016 May Change Your Life

Well, that’s one way to apply makeup. Issey Miyake sent his models down the runway with a pretty dope makeup look this season – fresh faces punctuated by a pop, rather, a splatter of color at the corner of the eyes. It’s a fun and graphic look that was applied in a most unexpected way. 

Makeup artist Alex Box had the models lie down on the floor as she blew the MAC pigments onto their faces through a straw, instead of a brush. It’s not something we often see backstage, and it’s making us want to up our beauty game. 

So… who wants to help us achieve this look tonight? See all the runway looks in the slideshow below.

Hussein Chalayan’s Spring 2016 Clothes Disappeared

It’s always a tragedy when you get caught in the rain wearing expensive designer duds – especially when you’ve already got a pile of clothes waiting to be dry cleaned. But designer Hussein Chalayan has an unexpected solution.


A video posted by Bryanboy (@bryanboycom) on

During his Spring 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week, models wearing white jackets stood in the middle of the runway under a shower head which doused them in water. In a snap, the jackets dissolved, revealing another look hidden underneath. The outerwear, according to a tweet sent out by Susie Bubble, was made of water-soluble paper.

Let’s just say, this is probably the most fashionable shower anyone has ever taken.
