Model Twitpics of The Week!

You know what they say about April Showers right? Of course they bring May Flowers, and along with May flowers, we also get some pretty epic pictures shared by our favorite girls!  From Karlie Kloss sharing the most EPIC #tbt ever (and proving that Coachella style was really a thing all those years ago) to Kendall Jenner showing us that Kim isn’t the only Kardashian with considerable assets to Chrissy Teigen confusing herself over a chemistry candy shop, check out the slideshow below for today’s Twitpics!

Behati Prinsloo, Hanne Gaby and More Give How-Old.Net a Go – The Results Are Hilarious!

Earlier this week, My Idol was the techie trend that was taking over everyone’s social media feeds.  Now just in time to see us off for the weekend, there’s a new digital craze sweeping Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, only this time it’s a website, not an app.

Brought to you by Microsoft, How-Old.net is exactly what it sounds like: a website that attempts to guess your age using face mapping technology.  And like any great time suck, it’s super easy to use.  Simply upload a photo of yourself to the site, press the little button, and in an instant, the #HowOldRobot pastes a little yellow stickie that signifies how old you look according to the software.

Of course, what makes this techie trend so entertaining isn’t it’s remarkable accuracy (because we all know how old we are, so really what fun is that?), but rather it’s ridiculous inaccuracy.  Well, that and testing out every filter known to man in hopes that the robot will guess us as being younger than we actually are.  Needless to say, it didn’t take long for those with a smartphone or a computer to catch on, as it became an phenomena with tens of thousands of people on it overnight— especially among the models.

While scrolling through out Insta feed earlier today we came across a handful of models brave enough to give ‘How Old’ a try, the results of which have made for an exceptionally entertaining Friday afternoon.  Our personal favorite is Edie Campbell‘s hilariously inaccurate attempt, which guessed her to be about 30 years older than she is, and also a man. Here, some of the models’ best #HowOld posts:

Look of the Week: Sara Sampaio Looked Every Bit the Angel Last Night

She’s just been named one of the ten new contract Angels to join the Victoria’s Secret family, and on Thursday night, Sara Sampaio proved she was every bit the supermodel while stepping out for the Hot Pink Party benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  The 23-year-old Portuguese model ensured that all eyes were on her when she hit the pink carpet in a backless, metallic Marc Jacobs slip dress, an embellished box clutch and strappy sandals.  Like a true VS Angel, Sara kept her beauty look sleek and simple, opting for relaxed, beachy waves and a pop of glossy pink on her lips.  Clearly, she’s been taking notes from her famous predecessors.

Cara Delevingne Ad Deemed Too Hot to Handle in the UK

Cara Delevingne is one hot Brit! So hot in fact, that her native country has deemed her Tom Ford Black Orchid campaign too sexy for public display.

The ads, which shows the model naked in a bath of orchids, has been banned from being displayed within 100 meters of any school in the UK.  After the ad first appeared on a large billboard in East London, critics called it “inappropriate,” which resulted in the ultimate ruling by the Advertising Standards Authority. Though critics attempted to have the ad removed completely, the ASA put a stop to that, citing it was “unlikely to cause serious offense.”

Sure — Cara’s body is on full display, but this is hardly the first time a high-fashion designer has enlisted a model to strip down for a photo shoot. Nor is this Tom Ford’s first run-in with the public due to the nature of his infamously steamy (and totally NSFW) campaigns. In fact, we’re still shocked that some of these bad boys that he commissioned for YSL, Gucci and his namesake label even made it to print!

Modelinia AM Reads: 8 Unique Model Baby Names to Inspire William and Kate

Leave it to Victoria’s Secret, a brand synonymous with celebrating women and beauty, to create a national holiday that honors just that.  This week, the lingerie behemoth announced their inaugural “International Bombshells Day,” which will be held the first Saturday in May of each calendar year. The holiday is meant to encourage ladies to pamper themselves, embrace their “inner Bombshell”, spend time with friends and, maybe, do a little shopping. ~ Facebook

Don’t expect to get any sneak-peeks inside the Met Gala from your favorite models this year. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is cracking down on social media and phone usage at this year’s ball.  Not only have selfies been banned from the fashion event, celebs will also not be permitted to document inside the event on social media. And here we thought we lived in the digital age. ~ Page Six 

If anyone knows how to throw a damn good party, it’s Alexander Wang and Lady Gaga. This year, the two are joining forces by hosting a Met Ball after-party at an undisclosed location.  There’s no word yet whether Gaga will be performing, but we can almost guarantee you’re going to be wishing you were there. ~ The Cut 

Kendall Jenner‘s giant Calvin Klein Jeans billboard in New York City was vandalized on Wednesday night by a drone. Graffiti artist KATSU figured out how to make the flying robotic device wield a can of red spray paint, which he then used to scribble across the model’s face. Not cool, man. ~ Wired

After posting several teaser images to her Instagram, Gisele Bündchen launched a smoldering black and white video campaign for the fall collection of her namesake label Gisele Bundchen Intimates on Thursday. Watch the supermodel strut and sway in the line’s elegant ‘Butterfly’ bra and panties among other lacy unmentionables. ~ YouTube

The New Victoria’s Secret Angels Just Recreated THAT Iconic Supermodel Photo

On Tuesday, news broke that Victoria’s Secret had added ten new supermodel Angels to its roster, marking its largest group of contract models in history.  Naturally, the rookies wasted no time in celebrating their coveted new contracts, with both the models and the brand posting the first batch of photos featuring #TheNewestAngels to Instagram and Twitter.  Most included shots of the models doing what they do best (i.e. posing in racy lingerie), but there was one photo in particular that really made us stop and stare — well, more than the others anyways.

So You Think You Have What It Takes to be the Next Karlie Kloss?

These days, more and more designers appear to be skipping the traditional model casting calls in favor of scrolling through their Instagram feeds:  Marc by Marc Jacobs has now cast two of its campaigns with models found using the #CastMeMarc hashtag, DKNY followed a similar strategy when it came time to cast its Cara Delevingne for DKNY collection campaign, and MAC Cosmetics recently tapped six model hopefuls for its fall 2015 campaign under its “MACnificent Me” initiative.

Now, in an attempt to take its model search efforts to the next level, IMG — arguable the biggest modeling agency in the industry and operators of the popular model search Instagram account @weloveyourgenes — is joining forces with W magazine to launch its first-ever international model search contest, kicking off today.  Here’s how it works: by tagging your photos with #WmagModelSearch, you’ll be given the opportunity to have your photos reviewed by some of the industry’s top influencers including W‘s fashion and style director Edward Enninful, and legendary fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, both of whom have worked with the likes of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Karlie Kloss among others.

Throwback Thursday: Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and More at Their High School Proms

Do you remember your first prom?  Sifting through countless racks until you uncovered that one perfect Cinderella-worthy gown; spending all day getting your hair and makeup done just right; becoming embarrassed when your mom took way too many photos of you and your prom date; and later, dancing the night away with all of your closest friends in tow.  However you did it, the formal dance is a milestone in every teenager’s life, the models included.

Though many of our favorite home-grown beauties didn’t share a typical high school experience — jetting off to Milan and Paris for fashion week tends to get in the way of algebra class — they did get to take part in the cherished high school tradition. The big difference being that they got to do it dressed in designer gowns created by Jason Wu, Christian Dior, and Alberta Ferretti. You know, no biggie.

In homage to prom season, we tracked down the throwback prom photos of some of our favorite catwalkers including Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Kendall JennerLindsey Wixson and more.  Scroll through the slideshow below to see what they wore to the big dance way back when.
