The Top 5 Fall ’15 Beauty Trends to Try Now

Yes, we know, it’s still only February — meaning we have a good six months before the beauty trends we saw at New York Fashion Week are supposed to appear off the runway. But truthfully, we’ve never really been keen on following those rules like that, and who could blame us? When Fashion Week delivers gorgeous hair and makeup looks like the ones we say this past week, it’s near torture not to indulge immediately. That being said, we scoured through our backstage notes to roundup the top 5 fall ‘15 beauty trends to try now.  So go ahead, break the rules and get a head start on fall with our top beauty picks below!

Look of the Week: Gigi Hadid’s Heart-Racing Atelier Versace Gown

As expected, Sunday night’s Academy Awards in LA were filled with some of the biggest names in Hollywood — from box-office stars to legendary directors, to a coterie of models including the likes of Behati Prinsloo, Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Karlie Kloss.  But of all the amazing red carpet looks, one in particular stood out: Gigi Hadid‘s architectural Atelier Versace gown.  With it’s unique asymmetrical design, intricately placed cut-outs and a slit that went all the way up the thigh, the slinky number had no problem standing out among the masses of runway-ready designs.  Of course, we’re sure that also had something to do with the bombshell making her way down the carpet (can you say legs for days?!). Still, Gigi’s heart-racing gown is proof that head-to-toe black need not be boring — all you need is a little design ingenuity and of course, those killer curves don’t hurt either.

The Models’ Best Reactions to #TheDress

If you’ve been online or anywhere near your phone in the past few hours, it’s likely that you’ve been piqued by #TheDress debate. While most of the country was either in bed sleeping (or in our case, watching the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special), a viral image of a dress that appears black and blue to some and white and gold to others broke the Internet. The world was divided into two camps: #blueandblack and #whiteandgold (and then there’s the confused folks who are aren’t sure where they lie). Opinions were laid bare, passionate debates were had, and eventually, the models took sides. Here’s, where Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and others stand on the #DressGate 2015:

Modelinia AM Reads: 5 Street Style Stars We Couldn’t Get Enough Of This New York Fashion Week

As if Karl Lagerfeld wasn’t busy enough – he’s the creative director of Fendi, Chanel and his eponymous label – he has now decided to add yet another accolade to his overflowing CV. The multitasking designer will reportedly present Fendi’s first “Haute Fourrure” collection during couture week in Paris this summer.  The show will take place on July 8 and will give the brand’s robust in-house fur atelier an opportunity to “experiment” with its iconic designs. ~ Telegraph

Talk about a crime of fashion. Actress-turned-style-icon Lupita Nyong’o's Oscars gown was stolen out of her London West Hollywood hotel room on Tuesday. The gown, a Calvin Klein original, is worth $150,000 and made from 6,000 Akoya pearls. ~ WWD

Art or racism? So was the debate at Claudio Cutugno’s fall 2015 show in Milan on Thursday, when the Italian designer sent women down the runway with their faces painted with black glitter.  On the one hand, Pat McGrath’s done this before. On the other, this is dangerously close to black face. ~ Yahoo Style 

Meanwhile, at Moschino, designer Jeremy Scott enlisted the Looney Tunes characters as his latest pop culture muses.  He plastered oversize T-shirts with images of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and the Tasmanian Devil, while gleefully marching into late-’80s and early-’90s territory with quilted outerwear in primary colors and gowns emblazoned with sequined “graffiti.” And ”Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-… That’s all, folks.” ~ The Cut 

It’s hard to believe just looking at him that Marc Jacobs is nearing 52 and yet, the once enfant terrible of the fashion world is making it very clear that he’s of a different generation entirely.  In a new and very revealing interview with Suzy Menkes for British Vogue, the designer laments our widespread reliance on technology and social media, deeming it “appalling.” ~ Vogue UK 

New York Fashion Week may be over, but we still can’t get enough of the awe-inspiring street style we spotted all week long. Here, we’re counting down the top five models with the best off-duty style— from the post-show tomboys to the fearless and chic. ~ Modelinia

These Models Get #FOMO Just Like You!

Models may travel the world, wear only the finest fashions, and hang out with the creme de la creme of the Hollywood set, but as it turns out, even they are not immune to the crippling feeling of #FOMO.  That’s right, while you were regrettably scrolling through your Instagram feeds these past few weeks, cursing the fact that you weren’t at that Fashion Week party or soaking up the sun in Puerto Rico with the Victoria’s Secret Angels, the models were all admittedly doing the exact same thing.  Well, maybe not all of them.

“I don’t get FOMO.  I work really hard to make sure I’m doing everything I want to do,” Alessandra Ambrosio told us at a recent Victoria’s Secret press day.  But hey, if we were Alessandra, we probably wouldn’t feel that we were missing out on a whole lot either. Yet, sadly we are not Alessandra and so, in anticipation of the FOMO-inducing moments we’re likely to experience while watching the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special airing tonight on CBS — not to mention the handful of fashion week shows we still have on deck— we caught up with a few of our favorite Angels and rising model stars and asked them to share their last great FOMO experience.  Scroll through the slideshow below for proof that sometimes, models really are just like us.

In honor of the memorable milestone, Gisele took to Instagram this afternoon to share a photo from her “magical” wedding day — well, her second magical wedding day to be exact (in addition to the Santa Monica nuptials, the couple also celebrated with a private reception in Costa Rica).

“Magical day! #tbt ❤️❤️❤️,” the mother of two captioned the shot which revealed her gorgeous white wedding gown, as well as the couple’s ultra-chic cake-topper.

The rare glimpse of the couple’s wedding day is only the second time we’ve seen a photo from the pair’s nuptials. In honor of the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary, Gisele posted a similar shot last year, which marked the first time fans were treated to a peek of the pair’s romantic ceremony.
