Modelinia AM Reads: The Ultimate Guide to the Coolest Model BFFs on Instagram

Hollywood rolled out the red carpet once again on Sunday night as the A-list pulled out the glitz and glam for the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. From Jennifer Aniston’s shocking John Galliano statement to Lupita Nyong’o's show-stopping Elie Saab gown, see what all of your favorite TV and film stars wore here! ~ PopSugar

Fashion may have been the main attraction at last night’s SAG Awards, but let’s not forget about the stunning beauty looks.  Elegance and minimalism were the name of the game here, with stars turning everything from nude lips to shiny blowouts into full-on beauty moments.  Check out the winning beauty looks (plus the products that you can use to pull them off) here! ~ Refinery29

In case awards season hasn’t provided enough floor-sweeping gowns to swoon over, Paris haute couture week kicked off on Sunday with an uber sexy showing by Atelier Versace.  Among the stars on hand watching Karlie Kloss and other models walk down the catwalk were Ellie Goulding, Michelle Rodiguez and Kate Hudson, who flaunted her figure in one of the collection’s barely-there numbers.  ~ Grazia UK 

Naomi Campbell—icon of the ’90s pre-Internet supermodel heyday—has an opinion about the whole “Instagirl” phenomenon, and she made it known on “The Meredith Vieira Show” on Friday. While speaking openly on the topic, the supermodel insisted that her and her fellow catwalkers (Cindy, Christy and the gang) had to “earn our stripes and take our stepping stones,” while today’s models have had it easy. ~ Style.com 

On Monday, Reformation — a sustainably focused  retailer patronized by cool girls like  Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyLily Aldridge and Candice Swanepoel— released its first lower-priced point collection. Titled “Obvious,” the line includes jackets, dresses, skirts and tops in prices ranging from $28 to $178, which are now available online and in the brand’s three stores (two in New York City, and one in Los Angeles). ~ Fashionista

In an industry filled with long hours, crowded casting sessions and major pressure to look perfect at all times, it’s no wonder that models often bond and stick together.  Luckily for us, these model friendships aren’t kept behind closed doors.  From decades-old pals like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to everyone’s favorite model/celeb clique of Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin, we’re able to live vicariously through these model besties on the daily, courtesy of Instagram.

It wouldn’t be a Friday without our round-up of some of our favorite model social media snaps from the week, now would it?! While it’s always fun to keep an eye on what the models have been up to – this week was especially juicy, from Cara Delevingne getting her finger into a dicey situation, to Chrissy Teigen showing off yet ANOTHER injury, to Karlie Kloss showcasing some of her favorite things (and ours too) to Kendall Jenner aptly quoting Beyonce while in an elevator – scroll through the slideshow below to see what some of your favorite models have been up to in today’s Twitpics!

Would You or Wouldn’t You: Kendall Jenner’s Caped Crusader Look

It’s been a big week for Kendall Jenner.  She’s starred in a campaign for Karl Lagerfeld, launched her first Estee Lauder ad and was topped British GQ‘s “Coolest Women in the World” list.  At this point, she’s basically putting the “super” in “supermodel,” which might explain why her latest look is giving us some serious comic book hero vibes.

Spotted grabbing lunch in Beverly Hills earlier this week, the model of the moment stepped out in a playsuit unlike any we’ve ever seen before.  Unlike your traditional romper, Kendall’s long-sleeved Sass & Bide version included a dramatic fishtail skirt that lent a delicate, bohemian vibe to the otherwise monochromatic ensemble.  The brunette stunner completed the look with a red statement lip, chic Balenciaga gladiator sandals and her favorite Céline micro bag for an added dose of ladylike polish. The look is simple sure, but as Kendall proves, sometimes all it takes it one great piece to make an outfit super.

What do you think?  Would you rock Kendall’s dramatic caped crusader look?

Look of the Week: Gigi Hadid Turns Neo-Grecian Goddess for Fashion LA Awards

We’ll admit it: the red carpet looks of 2015 have been lack luster to say the least.  In a sea of black, see-through or otherwise understated looks, few have stood out from the masses, or so we thought prior to last night’s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards hosted by the Daily Front Row.

While stars like Rihanna, Katey Perry and Miley Cyrus certainly gave fans something to gawk at (most notably Cyrus, who chose a T-shirt bearing the phrase “I Had Nothing To Wear So I Put On This Moschino Dress”), it was Gigi Hadid who held our attention in a rosy asymmetric dress from Calvin Klein Collection.  The Maybelline model and the recipient of the publication’s “Model of the Year” award, embraced a fresh take on the neo-Grecian trend that popped up at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month by opting for a figure-hugging silhouette that showed off her pin-up worthy curves and statuesque figure.  The simplicity of the look was reminiscent of something Kate Moss might have worn back in the ’90s and yet, Gigi makes it feel fresh for the 21st century with minimal accessories including a metallic box clutch and strappy Stuart Weitzman sandals.  A perfect option for a Valentine’s Day date, no?

Cara Delevingne Brings Her “It-ness” to Luxury Brand Tag Heuer

These days, when we think luxury ad campaigns, we think Cara Delevingne.  The model of the moment counts everyone from Chanel and YSL Beauté to Fendi and Burberry among her impressive list of clients— all of whom have tapped into the her widely popular social media channels to promote their brand to a new age of fashion consumers.  With her signature blend of high-end elegance and brazen youthfulness, Cara makes for a dream brand ambassador, which is why is comes as little surprise this morning to see that now even accessories powerhouse Tag Heuer is getting in on the Cara love fest.

Modelinia AM Reads: Need a Quick, But Stylish Weekend Outfit? Look No Further!

In addition to starring in seemingly every spring ad campaign, Kendall Jenner is also back in Vogue.  The model of the moment poses in statement pants by everyone from Balmain to Giorgio Armani for the glossy’s February issue shot by Patrick Demarchelier. She was even given some pretty sweet fringe for the gig! ~ Vogue

Stop what you’re doing. Kate Moss just stepped out in Paris wearing the most insane fur coat we’ve ever seen.  Kate donned the floor-length piece for the Louis Vuitton menswear show, where she sat front row and apparently really wanted to make a statement.  Thoughts? ~ WhoWhatWear

After a temporary hiatus, “Shit Girls Say” creators Graydon Sheppard and Kyle Humphrey are back with a hilarious new haircare commercial for Aussie. The roughly minute long commercial attempts (rather successfully we’ll add) to sum up all of the painstakingly awkward and otherwise ridiculous things women do to protect their ‘do in an effort to convince us all to #DitchTheDrama.  It’s pretty convincing. ~ AdWeek

Following the overwhelmingly positive response Emma Watson received to her first speech on gender equality, the actress decided to take her campaign to Davos on Friday to continue to spread her message. Speaking on behalf of United Nations Women in her role as goodwill ambassador, she addressed the world’s most prestigious politicians and business leaders at the World Economic Forum regarding her HeForShe initiative. The definition of beauty and brains this one. ~ Yahoo Style

The male models on Rick Owens’s Paris runway had more than leather jackets and knitwear on display at Thursday’s spring 2015 show.  And by that, we mean full frontal fashion exposure.  Honestly, where does it end? ~ Refinery29

In need of some off-duty outfit inspiration this weekend?  Look no further than supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who just stepped out in our perfect casual Sunday afternoon look complete with comfy boyfriend jeans, Isabel Marant boots and the most gorgeous printed scarf. Get the look here! ~ Modelinia

Kendall Jenner and Karl Lagerfeld Reveal Their Latest Project

We’re starting to think we should start a blog entirely devoted to Kendall Jenner—the girl’s got so much going on!  Just 24 hours after the premiere of her first drop-dead gorgeous Estee Lauder campaign, the model is making headlines once again, this time with the release of her latest work with Karl Lagerfeld.  No, it’s not a Chanel campaign (although, we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before we’re reporting on that).  It is however, the next best thing.

As promised to us back in November, the realty star turned supermodel stars in the spring 2015 campaign for Lagerfeld’s eponymous label, which highlights the brand’s accessories in bright pops of color against black and white portraits of Kendall and male model Baptiste Giabiconi.  Not unlike her latest Marc Jacobs campaign, Kendall sports a pair of thick fringe, although this time it’s kept sleek and polished.

The brand also released a little behind-the-scenes video from the shoot on Instagram, which you can watch below.  Tell us, which is your favorite Kendall-fronted campaign thus far?

Listen Up: Victoria’s Secret PINK Model Taylor Hill Has the Perfect Valentine’s Day Outfit For You

Is it just us, or has January seemingly come and gone in the blink of the eye?  Blame it on the excitement of awards season, but no sooner had we finished celebrating the New Year did we find ourselves pondering plans and possible outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day — a holiday we had all but forgotten about until last night’s Victoria’s Secret PINK press event.

Having been invited for a “Date with Pink,” we headed to the brand’s Soho store to celebrate the launch of the brand’s new Date Bra where we had the chance to catch up with PINK model Taylor Hill, who let us in on everything from her perfect date night look to her favorite Valentine’s Day memory and her surprising celebrity crush.  Get the scoop on all of that and more after the jump!
