Are Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez the New Karlie and Taylor?

Looks like Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift may have some competition for the title of fashion’s favorite celebrity BFFs.

While the leggy blondes have been out strolling the New York City streets in their well-coordinated off-duty ensembles, another set of A-listers have been busy making their case for a new model-pop star pair.  That’s right— Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez, otherwise known as everyone’s favorite fun-loving pal and Justin Beiber’s on-again-off-again flame, have been taking Saint Tropez by storm this week, turning heads left and right as they’ve enjoyed some time at sea in celebration of the singer’s 22nd birthday.

The pair was spotted enjoying some fun in the sun onboard a luxury yacht off the coast of France on Monday, where they gave a lesson in effortless summer style.  While Selena flaunted her curves in a white one-piece covered with a printed caftan and oversized square shades, Cara kept to her signature sporty aesthetic, opting for a pair of white Topshop shorteralls, a wide-brimmed hat and a cutout black bikini worn with red gym shorts.

Of course, the real festivities started after sundown, at which point the two BFFs hit the town to enjoy a night out at Villa Romana.  The two looked sleek and sexy in matching fitted black looks, which for Cara meant a see-through blouse paired with a tight leather mini-skirt and peep-toe booties.  The two were said to have enjoyed a meal at the restaurant before moving to the adjoining nightclub where they partied until the early morning hours.

There’s no word yet if the duo plans to continue their stylish jaunt throughout the Mediterranean, but with Cara’s 22nd birthday just around the corner (it’s August 12th), we can bet this is hardly the last we’ve seen of the pair’s partying antics.

The Models Make a Case for the ‘Wet Hair Look’ – Will You Try It?

Sleek, wet hair isn’t just for the beach anymore; it also works for the front row, the red carpet, the city streets and just about anywhere else you can imagine.  Don’t believe us?  The proof is in the models!

Since taking over the Spring/Summer 2014 runways (Theyskens Theory, Rag & Bone, and Prabal Gurung had our favorite looks), the fresh-out-of-the-shower look appears to have been given the green light by the models, who prove that the look is not only wearable, but also incredibly chic.  Case and point: Candice Swanepoel‘s damp ‘do spotted in the front row at the Dior Homme show in Paris earlier this month.  Radiating laid-back summer elegance and effortless style, the Victoria’s Secret Angel skipped her typical glossy, bombshell waves for slicked-back finger-racked waves that still  looked wet at the roots. Similarly, Anja Rubik appeared to have stepped straight out of the pool and onto the red carpet at the Vogue Paris Foundation gala that same week, pairing her sleek hairstyle with a shimmery minidress by Anthony Vaccarello.  Meanwhile at the Giuseppe Zanotti store opening in Ibiza, Karolina Kurkova kept cool with a center-parted chignon that had that effortless wash-and-go appeal, while Lily Aldridge modeled a similar look for a night out with the CFDA—  demonstrating that summer’s easiest humidity-resistant hairstyle may also be fashion’s most glamourous.

Tempted to give the wet look a go?  Lucky for you, the style is surprisingly easy to pull off.  Simply apply a dollop of thickening mousse to the roots and through the top part of your hair, leaving the lengths dry.  For a more polished look, use a medium-size curling iron to create loose waves and finish with a spritz of shine spray.  You can also twist your hair into a tight chignon for an elegant style that can be work with a fresh face for lunch with the girls, or with dramatic eyeliner for a night on the town.  Either way, you’ll be keeping cool with far less fuss and really, what could be better than that?

Update: Here’s the Marchesa Gown that Inspired Behati Prinsloo’s Custom Wedding Dress

 

Though photos of Behati Prinsloo‘s custom-made wedding dress have yet to be released, we now have a look at the Marchesa design that inspired it all!

According to a new report by People magazine, the Victoria’s Secret Angel went for a specially-made blush Marchesa gown that was inspired by a runway look from the label’s fall 2011 collection.  The inspiration gown (photo below) features romantic floral appliqués and a tulle train, but according to a Marchesa rep, Behati had altered the design for a sleeker silhouette with thin spaghetti straps made of silk and a low back. The bride capped off her look with a floor-length white silk tulle veil and the same style Christian Louboutin “Valnina” shoes that hit the runway during the Marchesa spring 2014 show, which she had specifically made in white suede.   Behati and Chapman are said to have worked on the dress over the course of four months, with the final fitting taking place in New York City just a few weeks before the big day.

A Family Affair: Lanvin Taps the Campbell Clan for Fall 2014

When it comes to campaigns, posing with ones family members is nothing new; Georgia May Jagger and Jerry Hall have done it, so have Alessandra Ambrosio and her daughter Anja.  But posing with one’s entire family, including pets?  Now, there’s something new.

Taking that exact route, Lanvin has turned its fall/winter 2014 campaign into a family affair, tapping Model of the Year Edie Campbell and no less than eight of her family members for the carefree shoot.  Appearing in a range of glamourous images taken by famed fashion photographer, Tim Walker, Edie is joined by her younger sister Olympia, older brother Arthur (who sports a mullet to rival Edie’s), mother Sophie Hicks, father Roddy Campbell, grandmother Joan, grandfather Jeremy, as well as her own boyfriend Otis Ferry, and her sister’s, Mateo. Even her horse Dolly made the cut, stepping in front of the camera with the model/trained equestrian, who appears dressed in a bedazzled mini dress.
