While you’re scraping by, wondering how your Con Ed bill jumped so high over the past month, supermodels like Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne are too busy raking in the dough by the second. Literally. Print Detective set to sleuthing exactly how much money the world’s highest paid models made this year per second, using data from the Forbes list of 2014’s highest paid models.

Gisele Bündchen made $1.49 a second last year – one penny shy of being able to buy a pack of Orbit gum at the bodega every second — or $89.40 per minute. Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen clocked in at $0.22 per second; Jourdan Dunn, Natalia Vodianova, Karlie Kloss and Carolyn Murphy made $0.13; while Cara Delevingne and Anja Rubik collected $0.11 per second. Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Wixson, Erin Heatherton and Erin Wasson are all members of the 10 cent club.

Take a look at the full list and watch the models make money as the seconds go by.

This Rachel Zoe Dress Looks a Lot Like Valentino

Rachel Zoe and her team had better have a good explanation for this design misstep. The stylist-cum-designer is being accused of knocking off a frock from Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection, and it looks like the folks calling out Zoe may have a point. Lily Collins was decked out in a look from Zoe’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection for an appearance on Extra — a floral print dress with a white pointed collar and oversized cuffs that bears a strong resemblance to Valentino’s version of the piece. Save for the scalloped hemline, mesh underlay, a slightly different (yet not dissimilar) print and different collar-to-cuff ratios, Zoe’s version is essentially the same dress. 

Designers getting “inspired” by one another happens all the time. Olivier Rousteing showed a suit set for Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection that looked a lot like a Givenchy Couture piece from 1997. Karl Lagerfeld’s take on New Balance’s classic shoe design got him slapped with a lawsuit from the label. Chanel showed some cuffs on its Fall 2012 runway that looked extremely similar to Pamela Love’s Fall 2011 bracelets. Still, it is a bit disheartening when it does happen and this time is no exception.

At least Lily looks cute.

If Lindsay Lohan knows anything, it’s car insurance claims. The troubled starlet has had more than a few vehicular bust-ups, and now she’s turning her experiences into cold, hard cash. Esurance has tapped Lindsay to star in a spot for the company.

Sources say that the commercial is shooting in Long Beach. Lindsay’s history of car troubles includes allegedly hitting a man outside the Dream Hotel in 2012, hitting a driver at The Ivy in 2005, a DUI in 2007 when she drove into a tree, allegedly hit a baby stroller in 2010 and a few other incidents.

TMZ speculates that the ads could even be ready in time for the Super Bowl, giving us exactly one reason to watch the show in the first place.

New York Attorney General to Probe Saks’ Anti-Discrimination Policies

Saks wades deeper into trouble over the lawsuit a former employee brought against the retailer, claiming she was fired from her position at one of the store’s Texas locations because she’s a trans woman. Saks is looking to dismiss the suit based on a claim that transgendered people are not protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employers from discriminating against workers based on sex, religion, nationality, etc. Several courts, the Department of Justice and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission consider trans people to be included under that particular law. 

New York’s attorney general is going to conduct a deeper investigation of Saks’ policies, ordering the retailer to turn over paperwork regarding its anti-discrimination policies and procedures in handling claims made by employees. Last week, Saks doubled down on its position that transgendered employees are not covered under the Civil Rights Act, all the while reassuring the public that it does not discriminate against the LGBT community. Funny way of showing it.

We’re hoping this probe doesn’t bring us more bad news about Saks, but it’s clear that the retailer should start rethinking its policies regarding transgendered employees if it wants to avoid future troubles.

With the recent departure of creative director Frida Giannini, Gucci is scrambling to make some last-minute changes to its menswear collection, showing today in Milan. WWD reports that the label is making major modifications to its show, not only in the design, but also in the casting and the setup of the runway at the venue. 

Gucci’s head accessories designer Alessandro Michele is stepping in to lead the team, which is reportedly responding well to his direction. A source tells WWD, “It’s as far from the former Gucci as possible. Very young, and a clean break with the past.” We wonder whether the women’s collection due to show in a few weeks will get the same overhaul. 

We’ll definitely be taking a close look at Gucci’s latest.

There’s nothing but love for the campaign inside the thread. “Interesting, a risk, innovative (in an age of look-alike ad campaigns). The brand has gotten saccharine sweet, it’s nice to see them drift toward the dark side,” complimented HeatherAnne.

“This looks really interesting and quite fresh!” added Nepenthes.

“Gorgeous! Easily the most interesting and exciting image I’ve seen in this dire campaign season. Possibly Vanessa Moody’s best shot so far, Hedvig looks good too…any chance we’ll see Aya Jones please? Not familiar with the photographer, must go and check him out!” Fiercification noted.

Also full of admiration was DutchHomme: “My favorite campaign of this season! Beautiful, interesting & spooky at the same time.”

Wolkfolk agreed and commented, “I never expected something like that from Valentino. There’s a certain Virgin Suicides feeling. It’s definitely one of the most captivating campaigns released so far. If not the most captivating.”

“Captivating and innovating are the words. I was bored by their latest campaigns but this one is looking so intriguing. Colors are incredibly beautiful. Can’t wait to see more!” shared an optimistic Valentine27.
