Doutzen Kroes has had quite an exhausting day. The Victoria’s Secret model spent the morning giving birth to her second child, daughter Myllena Mae. Doutzen took to Instagram to share the first image of her baby girl, surrounded by husband Sunnery James and her three-year-old son, Phyllon.
The model captioned the sweet snap, “A miracle saw the light of day this morning. Welcome Myllena Mae❤️ Mommy, Daddy and big brother Phyllon are super proud!” Just yesterday, she posted an image of herself and Dutch actress Lieke van Lexmond, also pregnant, with their bellies adorably touching each other. Who knew that Doutzen’s little bun would be out of its oven the very next day?!
Doutzen’s daughter is adorable indeed, but don’t expect to see her following in her mother’s footsteps anytime soon. Doutzen told Page Six that she doesn’t want her daughter to model and would instead prefer if she took a different career path: “Instead of saying, ‘You’re so beautiful,’ I’ll say, ‘You’re smart,’ so she’ll have different aspirations in life than beauty and modeling.”
“Though I love my job, I’m not changing the world,” the new model mom added. “I’d love for her to study and to have different aspirations. We need to teach girls they can become presidents, and it’s not about beauty all the time.”
Sounds like little Miss Myllena’s got a bright future ahead. Congratulations to Doutzen and her family!
Access Hollywood sat down with the British pop singer to discuss her first movie role, which according to Rita, was no easy task. The actress dished to Billy Bush that she was put through eight callbacks, only to go on set having barely mastered an American accent. Rita says it was “incredibly difficult” to get down.
“I’m not going to do it for you now because it took me…I had to have someone in my ear on set telling me what to say before I said it because I was honestly like, so nervous, I forgot everything that I learned.”
While we suspect that Rita’s involvement in the movie was purely for publicity purposes, given the fact that the film already has a built-in fan base thanks to the best-selling novel it’s based on, perhaps the casting directors could have chosen, I don’t know, someone who actually can do an American accent and doesn’t need to be fed lines? We’re sure Rita is great in her role, and obviously as an overseas pop star and fashion darling, her presence in the movie is good PR. But perhaps someone who could do the job without that much prompting might have been more fit?
Anyway, we’re curious to see her performance, but mostly, we’re pumped for the kinky scenes between Jamie and Dakota Johnson.
Cheyenne Tozzi looks incredible in GQ South Africa’s August issue, with the men’s mag aptly referring to the blonde babe as “The Hot Aussie.” For the cover, the Cronulla-born model strikes a hands-through-the-hair pose in a revealing black one-piece swimsuit, oddly teamed with thigh-high lace stockings that are hardly fit for the water.
For her interview with GQ, she opens up about modelling from a young age and hailing from a family of long-legged beauties destined for the industry. “I grew up surrounded by models, photographers, stylists, hair and make-up artists – all kinds of creatives, really,” Cheyenne explained, telling the glossy that they fronted high-fashion mags like Vogue. “My mum and my aunts all modelled.”
But the family member that Cheyenne is most regularly linked to would have to be her older sister Tahyna Tozzi. Best known for her role in Blue Water High back in the day, Cheyenne admits that working alongside her big sis was actually really good. “My sister and I had a fun time when we were growing up shooting campaigns for iconic Australian brands like Billabong, David Jones and Mambo,” Cheyenne told GQ.

For Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration, The Vampire Diaries’ Kat Graham opted for a midriff-baring Bec & Bridge navy wrap-around crop and a matching midi pencil skirt. With the full sleeve, chest and neck coverage of the Aussie label’s crop, plus the modest length of the slim-fitting skirt, the look showcased just the right amount of sex appeal.
Kat was able to get a hit of additional colour in with her red Jimmy Choo pumps, perfectly balancing out the all-navy ensemble while still maintaining absolute sophistication. The starlet also donned fresh-faced makeup, tousled waves and enviable, to-die-for abs. This was Kat’s second look for Comic-Con International 2014, with her first look for The Vampire Diaries Press Line also delving into matching dark blue hues.
It’s really starting to do our heads in how much Miranda Kerr swaps between her good girl and bad girl image. Look at what she wore to the Escada Joyful Roadshow Fragrance Launch in Munich, for instance. The Aussie model exudes complete girl-next-door sweetness complementing those signature dimples of hers well in a matching green floral skirt and cardigan.
That being said, we’re guessing Miranda didn’t have much choice in what to wear for the event. The green, white and purple floral pencil skirt and cardigan, plus the minty croc-embossed bag are all from Escada’s fashion offering. Ten points go to Miranda for those amazing metallic purple pumps, though, because they’re the sexiest thing this outfit has to offer.
We’re nearly in August, and the September covers are slowly trickling out. Vogue UK has revealed Cara Delevingne as its cover star for the biggest issue of the year. This is Cara’s third time fronting the magazine — she previously covered its March 2013 and January 2014 issues. So, we guess British Vogue either really needs to reach out to different casting agencies for covers or, you know, it’s just running out of ideas.

This time around, the Louis Vuitton clad model is photographed by Mario Testino, serving up a modern 60s vibe, which didn’t go over too well in our forums.
“Don’t like it at all, she looks like a luxury zombie,” Nymphaea observed. While Avogadro wrote simply, “I find nothing appealing.”
Some thought the shot made Cara look younger than she already is: “I don’t know if it’s just me but I would love to see a model looking like a grown woman on a cover, not a twelve year old,” shared Tinsley V.
Forum member littlekiki agreed, “She looks like a four foot tall child. The jacket looks oversized on her.” Later adding, “There are going to be a lot of 14-year-old Instagram girls buying this issue.” Not sure what that’s supposed to mean, but to Vogue UK, probably money.
Obviously, few are feeling the cover, but I think Royal-Galliano summed up everyone’s sentiments pretty well: “For a fashion issue, it’s pretty lackluster.”
What do you think? Are you bored by Cara’s latest for Vogue UK? Head over to the thread and let us know your thoughts.
