Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Suki Waterhouse Strip Down for British Vogue’s April Issue

 

Looks like Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift aren’t the only stylish BFFs Vogue is interested in these days!

Hot on the heels of the fashion glossy’s #Kaylor-dedicated March issue, British Vogue appears to have taken a page of its counterpart’s playbook by casting longtime BFFs Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Suki Waterhouse on the cover of its April 2015 issue.

Shot by famed photographer Martio Testino, the issue marks Cara’s fifth cover feature for the magazine, and a first for Suki, who has appeared in its pages only once before.  In their group cover shot, Cara stands front and center sandwiched between her fellow fellow ‘It-girls,’ all of whom are dressed in similar style beaded gowns. J’adore!

By now, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the biggest news of the year: KIM KARDASHIAN IS BLONDE!  But do you know why she’s gone to the light side? As it turns out, it was all thanks to Madonna. ~ People

Leave it to Gigi Hadid to put a high-fashion spin on the classic overall.  On Sunday, the 19-year-old model hit the Paris streets wearing a pair of cropped leather G-Star overalls and some very sleek Fendi shades.  While the look make not be for everyone, there’s no denying that Gigi pulled it off with aplomb! ~ Daily Mail

Courrège’s Sixties-style headquarters on Paris’ Rue François Premier was the setting for an intimate dinner Saturday night to celebrate the fashion brand’s makeup tie-in with the Estée Lauder Cos. Spokesmodels Kendall JennerJoan Smalls and Constance Jablonski were all on hand for the fete and dare we say, looking as chic as ever! ~ WWD

Over the weekend, Vogue style editor-at-large Elisabeth Von Thurn Und Taxis landed herself in hot water after posting (and then later deleting) an Instagram photo that showed a homeless person reading a copy of the fashion magazine on the streets of Paris.  Elisabeth, who was in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, seemed to find the scene amusing and captioned the pic, “Paris is full of surprises….and @voguemagazine readers even in unexpected corners!” What’s surprising is that something like this would even happen! ~ Fashionista

“Chola Victorian” was the unusual combination of words makeup artist Pat McGrath used to describe the incredibly ornate look at Givenchy over the weekend.  The look, which took over six hours to apply, came complete with oversize septum rings, earrings, and over-the-top facial embellishments punctuated by pearls, emeralds and rubies.  The hardest part explained McGrath, was just getting everything to stay put! ~ Style.com 

It’s been quite a year for Cressida Bonas. Since splitting with Prince Harry in April 2014, she’s scored a place on Vanity Fair’s annual best-dressed list, was photographed by Mario Testino, became one of Mulberry’s ‘It-girl’ spokesmodels and now, to top it all off she’s following in the footsteps of Cara Delevingne with her first Vogue cover! ~ Telegraph

5 Supermodels Share Their Must-Have Beauty Products Throughout Fashion Week

Models may be pros at walking in dangerously high heels, wearing clothes with aplomb, and looking good while doing practically everything, but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command off the world’s best beauty products.  Backstage at fashion week each season, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of foundations, creams, bronzers, lip colors, and mascaras from brands that range from drugstore finds to luxury staples.   Between having their makeup applied and reapplied several times a day and their skin exposed to just as many different ingredients, it’s safe to say that they’ve figured out which products really belong in beauty’s upper echelon. Here, we got five supermodels including Jourdan DunnJessica Hart and Karlie Kloss (who routinely takes to Instagram to share the contents of her travel bag) to reveal the three must-have beauty products they never leave home without.  From ‘gotta-have-it’ lip balms to hair growth supplements to an in-flight treat (that’s right, snacks have their place in beauty too),  here are 15 beauty products you’ll always find in these models’ carry-on bags.

Anja Rubik Wants to Empower You With the Scent of Her Debut Perfume

Photo by Paola Kudacki

In her decade as one of the world’s most in-demand models, Anja Rubik has been the face of quite a few fragrances — Chloé, Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eleganza, Fan di Fendi, and Elie Saab to name a few. She’s the fragrance world’s dream —the perfect mix of high-fashion elegance and commercial sexy— and now, she’s looking to profit from her perfume prowess with the launch of her first fragrance, Original by Anja Rubik.

We know what you’re thinking: another celebrity perfume — how good could it be?  The answer: good. Really good, in fact.  The subtle, yet sexy scent combines hints of lily, amber and green tea for a modern, unisex fragrance that, as Anja hopes, does more than just wear well — it makes a statement.  ”It’s about confidence to follow your dreams and your own path,” says Anja of the message behind her scent. “I want it to trigger this feeling of empowerment.”

Here, we sit down with Anja to learn more about her fragrance debut, the scents that inspire her, and why her perfume is just as much a nod to feminism as it is a must-have addition to your fragrance collection. See below for the full interview.

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid Just Had the Cutest Girls Day in Paris

They may be globetrotting models with connections to some of the world’s biggest designers, but that isn’t stopping BFFs Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid  from playing tourist this fashion week.  While taking a break from the Paris runways on Friday, the pair decided to indulge in a few laid-back cultural activities because hey, models are just like us (well, sort of)!

After lunching at the iconic L’Avenue restaurant, Kendall and Gigi reportedly popped by Céline for a bit of shopping before visiting the Notre Dame cathedral.  And because no Paris adventure is complete without a trip to the city’s famous Pont des Arts bridge, the models finished off their epic girls day by signing their initials to a lock and adding it to the bridge, thus cementing their friendship for all eternity.

Gigi and Kendall’s afternoon on the town comes on the heels of last night’s star-studded Balmain afterparty, where the two celebrated their appearance in the brand’s fall 2015 show by stepping out in two hot-off-the-runway designs.

Keep scrolling to see more photos from Gigi and Kendall’s awesome girls day and head HERE for the full look at that model-studded Balmain party!

WATCH: Here’s the First Look at Cara Delevingne in That Amanda Knox Biopic

It’s been a little over a year since we first learned that Cara Delevingne, fashion’s favorite multi-hyphenate, had been cast in director Michael Winterbottom’s highly-anticipated Amanda Knox biopic, The Face of an Angel. During that time, the model and budding actress has been hard at work starring alongside Pharrell Williams in Karl Lagerfeld’s latest Chanel film, designing her own unisex line for DKNY, and filming John Green’s upcoming YA blockbuster Paper Towns with new pal, actor/musician Nate Wolff.  And now, after months of waiting, we’re finally getting the first look at Cara in what some are already calling her ‘breakout role.’

The film, which was inspired by the true life story of Meredith Kercher and Amanda Knox, centers on an unsolved murder case of a British student in Siena. Daniel Bruhl stars as a documentary filmmaker covering the case, while Kate Beckinsale stars as an author working on a book centered around the disappearance of the student. As for Cara, she plays the role of Melanie, a young British student who tries to help Bruhl’s character and ultimately, finds herself in some pretty scary situations.

Based on the trailer alone, Cara appears to have really come into her own as an actress here, making Winterbottom’s acclaimed psychological thriller that much more of a must-see.

Watch the trailer below and check out Cara in action when the movie hit theaters on March 27.

Look of the Week: Alessandra Ambrosio Just Stepped Out in the Perfect Off-Duty Look

We’re firm believers that during any given fashion week some of the coolest looks aren’t seen on the runways, but on the streets. Case and point: Alessandra Ambrosio‘s pre-Balmain runway ensemble.  Prior to opening designer Olivier Rousteing’s ’80s-inspired fall ’15 collection, the Victoria’s Secret Angel demonstrated her street style prowess  in a decidedly low-key ensemble that still managed to convey a sense of chic.  The star here is the model’s stripped ALC trousers successfully topped off with a crisp, white blouse and well-tailored Balmain topcoat.  For added polish (and intrigue), Alessandra opted for ladylike accessories by Kurt Geiger —  we’re particularly fond of her multi-color statement heels — while her transitional Bottega Veneta scarf added a fresh pop of color.  Should we find ourselves in Paris anytime soon, this is hands-down the look we’ll be channeling.
