Lottie Moss Just Score Her First Major Campaign!

If earning a legit modeling contract and posing for a Calvin Klein capsule collection haven’t yet convinced you of Charlotte (aka Lottie) Moss‘ supermodel potential, consider this: the 16-year-old just scored her first major fashion campaign!

“Mini Moss” as the British media has so aptly christened her, has been tapped as the face of the new Red Valentino fall/winter 2014 campaign shot by the esteemed Tim Walker.  In the new adverts, Lottie poses in a studio portrait juxtaposed with more quirky shots including set designs with Disney illustrations. It’s all really quite charming. And while Kate Moss herself has never front a campaign for the storied label (hard to believe, no?), she has worked with Walker a number occasions, proving yet again that Lottie is set to follow in her iconic footsteps.

Faux-Pas No More? The Models are Making a Case for Matching Your Lipstick to Your Outfit Once Again

At it’s worst, it’s been called tacky; at it’s best a safe choice.   But for a growing number of today’s top models, it appears that matching your lipstick to your outfit may be a faux-pas of the past!

After a summer of ‘no-makeup’ makeup and model-off-duty buns, coordinating your lipstick shade to your look—with its carefully devised, not-quite-so-effortless implications— suddenly feels fresh again for fall thanks to a few of our favorite style-setters. Karolina Kurkova was among one of the early adopters of the trend, thrusting it into the beauty spotlight when she matched a shocking red Armani Privé coat with an identical shade of crimson lipstick at Vogue Italia’s 50th anniversary celebration last month.  At the time, the look felt like just a subversive play on an outdated beauty convention, but when Chanel Iman answered Karolina’s red alert with a coordinating deep purple lip and Michael Kors dress just a few weeks later, we knew the tides were changing.  Then as if to seal the deal, Lily Aldridge chose a rose silk duster and identical flesh-toned lipstick for last week’s Thakoon’s 10th anniversary party, giving us all of the evidence we needed to jump on the monochrome makeup-and-outfit movement.

What we love about this trend is that it’s not only classically chic, but also refreshingly innovative.  To keep things modern, follow their lead and pair your favorite shade with matte skin, sleek, simple hair, and one show-stopping ensemble!

Did Cara Delevingne Just Score the Role of a Lifetime?

At the rate that Cara Delevingne is going these days, is may not be much longer until we start labeling her as an ‘actress and former model.’

In continued proof that Cara is a Hollywood star on the rise, it’s been reported that the 22-year-old is being considered for a major role in director David Ayer’s upcoming comic book blockbuster, Suicide Squad.  According to The Latino Review, Warner Bros. is seriously considering the aspiring actress for the meaty part of Harley Quinn, in what is shaping up to be DC Comics’ next big box office hit.

For those that don’t know, Harley Quinn is one of the famous Batman villains—the sidekick and unrequited lover of the Joker. She has been a feature of recent incarnations of the Suicide Squad— a government-run group of super villains sent on covert, black ops missions.

To add fuel to the rumor mill flame, Cara recently Instagrammed a caricature of herself as Harley Quinn alongside the caption, “Dress up time!!”

Now sure, this could just be a coincidence.  Perhaps just a hint to this year’s Halloween costume?  But considering the fact that she currently has six major projects in production including roles in Michael Winterbottom’s Amanda Knox biopic, The Face Of An Angel, Jack Schreier’s Paper Towns, and Joe Wright’s Peter Pan adaptation, Panwe’re betting this is more than just a rumor.

Meanwhile, the film has also been attached to a number of other big names including, Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie.  Needless to say, should this rumor pan out for Cara, it could be the role of a lifetime.

Stay tuned!

Doutzen Kroes Goes Fresh-Faced for Date Night

Doutzen Kroes is quite the busy beauty these days.  Not only is she the proud mama to a son, three-year-old Phyllon, and daughter, three-month-old Myllena Mae, but she’s also the face of Calvin Klein’s newest fragrance, Reveal, and of course, one of the upcoming stars of the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Still, that hasn’t kept the supermodel mama from squeezing in a little alone time with that other special person in her life: her husband Sunnery James.

After turning heads at the annual Elle Women in Hollywood Awards last week, the Victoria’s Secret Angel set aside a romantic night out with her handsome hubby at Craig’s Restaurant in West Hollywood, Los Angeles.  The hard-working mom looked as runway-ready as ever, stepping out in white high-waisted trousers, a slim grey tee and a black tuxedo jacket.  And while some would use the occasion to test out their favorite red lipcolor or a sexy smokey eye, Doutzen appeared to have gone completely makeup-free, allowing her beautiful blue eyes and perfect complexion to shine through naturally.
