Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Elevates the Little White Dress

We should really just start calling this “Rosie’s Look of the Week.” After having impressed last Friday in a multi-colored, floral-print look from Burberry’s fall’s collection, the British model is back again today, this time with an elevated take on the little white dress.

Spotted out with Jason Statham at Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica on Saturday night, Rosie, brightened up for spring in a louche, richly textured crinkled voile dress from Zimmermann’s Resort 2015 collection. Having been cinched at the waist with a tan leather belt, the dress made for the modern woman, combining a feminine silhouette with bohemian sensibilities.  Meanwhile, she had some fun when it came to her accessories, adding a touch of metallic via her fold-over clutch and rose-gold Anita Ko jewelry, while her beige Stuart Weitzman Nudiest sandals only served to enhance the model’s sun-kissed glow.  Factor in her textured bob and red statement lip, and the model’s high-glam take on beach beauty could inspire even the fairest amongst us to instill a new pre-party ritual: a quick application of self-tanner and a blast of salt spray.

Gigi Hadid is Having the BEST Birthday

If this week’s highlights are anything to go by, then it looks like 20 is going to be a good year for Gigi Hadid.  The model, who kicked off her birthday celebrations last weekend with a private dinner at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, finally said goodbye to her teen years on Thursday with the help of a few special loved ones.  Though she was technically on-duty all day, shooting a new swim campaign for Seafolly in Miami, the model-of-the-moment was hardly alone as she was greeted with a number of surprise gifts.  Her boyfriend, Cody Simpson, who was unable to be there due to his ongoing tour, out did men everywhere by sending his lady love a massive bouquet of roses to her hotel room. Well played Mr. Simpson, well played.

“Happy 20th birthday to my best mate @gigihadid,” tweeted the Aussie musician.  ”You are a WOMAN of soul and substance… I love you!”

Modelinia AM Reads: Six-Degrees of Cara Delevingne

Here’s another reason to love Chrissy Teigen.  The model appeared on the Meredith Vieira show this week to explain what drove her to post the now viral image of her stretch marks. ”I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises [I got] and then I saw the stretch marks in there,” she told Vieira. “I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore—and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forget what normal people look like now.” Preach. ~ Page Six

Not in love with the Apple Watch wrist bands? A host of third-party brands have popped up to offer customers something a little more individualized than Apple’s own bands. Some companies, like Casetify, will even let you print your own images from Instagram, Facebook or your photo collection directly onto the strap for a cool $50. ~ Fashionista

The New York Times‘ Vanessa Friedman interviewed a panel of the power players who help fuel the red carpet industry at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s annual SCADstyle presentation series this week. What they had to divulge was a candid, eye-opening look into just how much money and power gets passed around in the few paces it takes a celeb to walk from their car to the entrance. ~ Refinery29

Alexa Chung has had a lot of jobs in recent years — model, TV host, author, designer — and now thanks to Paper magazine, she add photographer to the list.  In her first published feature behind the camera, she captures intimate images of her famous friends from around the world.  Among our favorites is a close-up shot of Cara Delevingne sporting what else, a goofy face. ~ Paper magazine 

These days, Cara Delevingne seems to be friends with just about everyone and their mothers, a phenomenon that we can only assume will continue to flourish as she dives deeper and deeper into the Hollywood acting scene. To demonstrate just how deep her popularity runs, we decided to bust out one of our favorite parlor games— “Six Degrees of Separation” — and attempted to connect Cara with four of the most random celebrities we could find.  Check out our examples here and feel free to come up with your own and share them with us onFacebook and Twitter. ~ Modelinia

8 Unique Model Baby Names to Inspire William and Kate

It won’t be long now until The Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to royal baby number two, and as excitement builds once again at the Lindo Wing (yep, fans are already gathering outside), there’s seems to be only one question on everyone’s minds: What will Kate and Will name their little prince or princess? While many are betting on names like Alice, Elizabeth and Charlotte if it’s a girl, and Arthur, James or Philip if it’s a boy, we’ve found ourselves in the tiny pool of people still keeping their fingers crossed that it’s something slightly more unique.  In a last ditch effort to better our odds in the baby name pool, we rounded up eight of our favorite one-of-a-kind model baby names and their meanings (with the help of Google, of course) in hopes of inspiring Kate before she gives birth.  After all, if they’re good enough for fashion royalty, they must be good enough for British royalty too, no?

Are Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper an Item?

Are Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper an item?

The newly single Russian supermodel was spotted attending a production of Broadway’s Finding Neverland with the Oscar-nominated actor on Wednesday night, reports E! News.  What’s more, an inside source claims that the two have been “hanging out” as of late, and were also spotted out dancing last weekend with a group of friends.  ”[They] were really enjoying each other’s company,” says the source.  ”They have a lot of chemistry with each other.”

Still, the reports are quick to point out that the relationship is nothing serious…yet.  The supermodel and Hollywood hunk are “keeping things light” and “just having a great time,” as they are both coming out of long-term relationships. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model ended a 5-year-long relationship with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo back in January, while Bradley and fellow model Suki Waterhouse called it quits on their two-year relationship back in March. However, Bradley and Suki were just spotted enjoying dinner together on April 9, and hugging and chatting at Coachella a day later, sparking rumors of a reconciliation, so who knows?
