The Models Turn Out for Chanel’s No. 5 Launch Party

Leave it to Chanel to kick off the week in the most glamourous way possible.

With its loyal model supporters in tow, the French fashion house took to a gallery space in Chelsea on Monday night to host a celebratory cocktail party in honor of the brand’s upcoming video ad campaign for its No. 5 fragrance, entitled “The One That I Want” written and directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Gisele Bündchen.

As expected, a number of the brand’s favorite models were on hand for the occasion, including Victoria’s Secret Angels Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss, newly-minted Chanel catwalker Gigi Hadid, and the No. 5 video star herself, who could barely contain her excitement as she struck a variety of poses in front of the party’s bedazzled No. 5 display. The Brazilian bombshell lead the way in a grey embellished mini-dress that showed off her perfect pins teamed with a pair of metallic silver pointed-toe pumps, matching hoop earrings and a Chanel clutch. Gisele also posed with her arms around Luhrmann and Lagerfeld before taking her place at the elaborately set tables. Read the rest of this entry »

Valentina Zalyaeva, Cameron Russell and More Celebrate the Best Bodies in the World

Here at Modelinia, we’ve long praised today’s top models for their exceptional health and fitness inspiration.  But for those who still have doubts about fashion’s leading ladies, we not have the opinion of a true health guru to back us up: Self magazine’s new editor-in-chief, Joyce Chang.

“I think there’s a new guard of models that take so much pride in really embracing a healthy lifestyle and promoting the longevity of their careers that we haven’t seen before,” Chang explained from The Sky Room of the New Museum on Thursday night.  ”Of course, models have to take care of themselves for the sake of their careers, but I think we should all be inspired to pay attention to our health, working out regularly and eating right.  I really admire someone who spends the time and dedicates themselves to it,” which is a common factor among the women we featured in our October issue.”

What’s Trending: Supercharged Red Lips Shine Bright for Fall

Red lips have been delivering a heavy dose of femininity to the masses for more than a hundred years, but is it just us, or does the latest incarnation of the shade feel a bit like someone suddenly cranked the dial way up on the intensity?

Taking the place of last year’s goth-glam shades, this season’s classic red lip draws inspiration from its Old Hollywood roots, but with a supercharged level of shine that feels perfectly suited for fall’s plethora of luxe fabrics.  Think more high-impact vinyl-red than creamy merlot. The new red lip has a scene-stealing attitude that is hard to deny, and even harder to resist.

Drawing inspiration from our favorite crimson beauties, we rounded up five of the best new red lipsticks of the season strictly for your shopping pleasure.  Shop them now in the slideshow below!
