Are models slowly returning to the covers of ladymags? Joan Smalls was on the January cover of Elle; now Lara Stone graces the April cover of Bazaar. Back in September, People editor Larry Hackett said: "The era of the A-List movie star is over." So does the future of fashion mags look like the (model-driven) past?
"I find it weird when [model] agents say, 'You're the only black girl booked for the show. Isn't it great?' Why is it great?" — Jourdan Dunn, in an interview with The Telegraph. More at the link.
Another "plus-size" model has weighed in regarding the label and its merits. This time it's Hayley Hasselhoff (yes, daughter of David; she also appeared on the short-lived-but-excellent ABC Family show Huge) and she's actually pretty cool with the label.
The conversation in the fashion world about diversity has been amped up over the past few seasons, but unfortunately, designers haven't really broadened their minds about what faces to cast — there hasn't been a drastic difference on the runways.
The March 2014 edition of Details is "the fashion issue," and instead of the usual celebrity face, male models grace the cover. It's… different. Eye-catching, sure, but also a bit disorienting.
Yesterday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that categorizes fashion models under the age of 18 as "child performers." This could have an impact on how designers hire models when fashion week rolls around again in February.
Elliott Sailors — a former Ford model — has been getting a lot of press recently, ever since she walked into a barber shop and asked for someone to cut off her long hair and give her a boy's haircut.
"I had expected it to be glamorous and fun, but it wasn’t like that at all. One day I was put in a line-up with 12 models. We were all naked apart from flesh-coloured thongs, standing in front of a panel of casting directors. They basically went through us and said ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘yes’, ‘no’, depending on whether we…
We've written a lot over the years about the racial diversity of the American fashion industry — and particularly the diversity of the models cast to walk in New York fashion week — but less about the biggest brands headquartered in fashion's other three global centers: Paris, London, and Milan. With couture week…
For the first time since Raf Simons took over the design duties at Christian Dior, the brand has hired black models for its runway show. Six black models were cast in today's Dior couture show, one of the most highly anticipated fashion shows of the season.
Christy Turlington's inclusion in this fall's Prada campaign is the main focus of Women's Wear Daily's story on the new ads — but forgive us if we think the venerable trade is guilty in this instance of burying the lede. The real news here is that, for the first time since the fall of 1994, there's a black face of…
Model Marina Asenova says she became the face of Sally Hansen when her former agency, MC2, struck a deal with the company and kept it from her. And now she's going after Sally Hansen's parent company, the beauty giant Coty, for looking the other way.
Now we know where she gets that smize. Tyra Banks and an unidentified man stopped by a marijuana dispensary in Venice Beach — where that kind of thing is legal — this Saturday. Banks emerged carrying a small paper bag of something. But more importantly, those sweats! Look at them! They have a jaunty bamboo print! I…
Today's Women's Wear Daily offers an exciting glimpse into the agency-indebted, Champagne-fueled, studio-in-East-Midtown glamourous life of male modeling in New York City. Male modeling is just like female modeling, only the paychecks are smaller, your dad doesn't respect it, and the brass ring is a non-paying job…
Here is a delightful video of a male models' choir singing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Whoever came up with this idea deserves a medal.
