Model Twitpics of The Week!

Well folks, it’s been another exciting week for some of our favorite models!  One of our favorite parts of this job is being able to scour their various social media accounts to bring some stand out snap-shots to you, just in case you missed them!  This week, we loved seeing Alessandra Ambrosio reunite with old friend, famed photographer Gilles Bensimon, Cara Delevingne urging everyone to eat more chips (we’re not really sure, but if Cara says it, we’ll do it!), and Izabel Goulart thanking everyone for the outpouring of birthday love! To see what some of your other favorite catwalkers have been up to, check out the slideshow below for today’s Twitpics!

Shop the Look: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Easy Fall Weekend Style Solution

What are you doing this weekend? And, more importantly: What will you be wearing? For those still unsure of what lies ahead,  sartorially speaking anyways, you can rest easy— Rosie Huntington-Whiteley just found the solution to your weekend style conundrum.

Never one to allow something as mundane as running errands to dictate her ensemble, the supermodel hit the streets of LA this week in a look that could have just as well been destined for the runways.  A fan of leather mini skirts this season, Rosie put a casual spin on her go-to Isabel Marant Hutt Fold-Over Leather mini by pairing it with a cozy stripped sweater and a tailored green military coat that hit just below her skirt.  To off-set the look she added a pop of color with the addition of a structured red satchel, black booties, and a glossy blowout.

Now, just in time for the crisp fall weekend ahead, we feel inspired to take a page from Rosie’s style book for an effortless, day-to-night look— swapping the coat and satchel for a tuxedo blazer and a sleek box clutch makes it suitable for a night out.  Below, we’ve pulled together some pieces inspired by Rosie’s off-duty look to help get you started.  Happy Shopping!

Look of the Week: Lily Aldridge Smolders at Thakoon’s Anniversary Dinner

It won’t be long now until the first of this season’s holiday party invitations start flooding in, leaving us with the unfortunate task of sifting between a dozen or so outfits, none of of which will impress.  It’s a burden we know all too well, and one we plan to avoid this year thanks to Lily Aldridge and her flawless fall party ensemble!

Putting a fresh spin on modern boudoir dressing, the Victoria’s Secret Angel joined Barney’s New York in hosting Thakoon Panichgul’s tenth anniversary dinner on Wednesday in a flirty white pleated mini-dress and, the pièce de résistance, a silky burgundy robe coat from the designer’s spring 2015 collection— a piece that she later claimed reminded her of Hugh Hefner.  Paired with an artful pair of black peep-toe sandals, sleek strands and the most perfect fuchsia lipshade we’ve ever laid eyes on (CK One Pure Color Lipstick in Liplock and Kiss It to be exact), the supermodel looked sleek and sophisticated, and yes, just a wee bit sexy.

So ladies, take note: if you’re looking for a knockout party look this holiday season, make like Lily, and embrace your inner Hugh Hefner (you know what we mean).

Party Pics: Chrissy Teigen Lights Up the Night of Stars, Karlie Kloss Gets Ready for Halloween and More!

Last night, the Fashion Group International hosted its 31st annual Night of Stars Gala, drawing out a red carpet full of style stars. While the night’s highest honor, the Superstar Award went to industry great Diane von Furstenberg, our eyes were glued to the arrivals of our favorite models, whose knockout evening wear was deserving of its own award.

Fresh off of her Twitter hiatus, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit‘s Chrissy Teigen hit the carpet in a bright fuscia gown featuring a belted waist and plunging neckline, accompanied by a set of bombshell waves and a glossy wine-colored lip.  Not to be outdone, Victoria’s Secret model Hilary Rhoda opted for a curve-hugging strapless black gown featuring mesh side paneling, while presenter Karen Elson shined bright in a shimmery gold gown.

Meanwhile, in Paris, Victoria’s Secret stunners Karlie Kloss and Barbara Palvin got a jump start on Halloween at the launch of the new De Grisogono ‘Crazy Skull’ watch in Paris.  Karlie looked every bit the heavenly Angel stepping out in a slinky black gown that was split to the navel.  In addition to a stunning pair of diamond drop earrings, the leggy super also had the honor of modeling the diamond encrusted watch for photographers, which was personally fitted for her slender wrist by de Grisogono founder, Fawaz Gruosi.

5 Easy Ways to Layer Like a Model This Fall

One of the best parts about cold-weather dressing? It’s finally time to pile on the layers! In the perfect marriage of form and function, a well-layered outfit will not only serve to keep you from freezing, but also adds nuance and dimension to your look.  Of course, like any worthy style hack, layering is often easier said than done.  Add the wrong type of layers and you look more Michelin Man than model; add too many and you’re outfit turns chaotic rather than chic.  If there is one type of person that always manages to strike the perfect layered balance though, it’s the models.  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that they are forever jetting from one foreign country to another; or maybe it’s just in their DNA.  Regardless, these women never fail to layer like pros, and today we’re drawing inspiration from the best of them.  Below, we pulled together some of our favorite model street style looks of the season to highlight four key ways you can make the most of your layers this fall.  Best of all, you probably already own most of these pieces, which means you won’t need to waste any time before testing out this nifty model-approved trend.  From Gisele Bündchen to Kendall Jenner, scroll through our style guide below to see how today’s top models are layering their favorite fall essentials.  Read the rest of this entry »

Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin Take Over the NY Knicks Front Row

Yup, it’s that time of the year again!  Of course, we’re referring to the start of the NBA season, which if we’ve learned anything from seasons past, is something of the new fashion front row for supermodels and celebrities alike!

Having been entertained by Cara Delevingne’s courtside antics last year, it comes as little surprise that this year’s season is being kicked off by fashion’s latest crop of “It” girls: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin. The gorgeous trio was spotted sitting front and center at a pre-season game between the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday where they impressed in coordinating off-duty looks.  Kendall for one looked ready to hit the runway having slicked her  hair back to better showcase her fiery red lip and matching nails. Taking cues from her bestie, Gigi kept cozy in a black cable knit sweater, cropped skinny jeans and classic black booties, while newcomer Hailey opted for an edgier grey suede moto jacket worn with leather trousers and black over-the-knee heeled boots.

Watch: Natasha Poly, Joan Smalls and More Are Badass Athletes in Alexander Wang’s New Video

At the presentation of his new H&M collaboration in New York last week, Alexander Wang not only staged a full-on runway show, but he also displayed some serious athleticism, with parkour performers and acrobats putting pieces from the H&M line to the test. Now, the campaign film for the collection has arrived, and  lo and behold, it’s taking things one step further with the help of a few tough-as-nails supermodels.

Opening with the designer in a futuristic locker room, the fashion film sees campaign models Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly and Raquel Zimmermann perparing to embark on an adrenaline-inducing competition against both the elements and  each other.  Watch as a fearless Natasha Poly scales walls and somersaults through bricks, while Joan makes her way through a blizzard on a makeshift snowboard, Isabeli dodges a flurry of balls Matrix-style, and Raquel zips around on a motorbike.  Whoever said models can’t hang with athletes clearly hasn’t seen these badass beauties in action!

Watch the film below and get ready for the intense competition that is waiting in line for the the new Alexander Wang X H&M collection when it hits shelves on November !
