Alessandra Ambrosio and Her Kids Star in the Most Adorable New Spread

What do you get when you mix one of fashion’s most adorable families, a sun-drenched beach, and the most amazing bohemian clothes on the market this season?  Only the most beautiful editorial spread we’ve seen in a long time!

Featured in the April issue of Glamour Magazine, Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio and her two precious little ones, Anja (six) and Noah (two), star in their first-ever family fashion spread shot on location in St. Barts.  Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, the shoot sees the Brazilian supermodel and her children frolicking on the beach in a series of coordinating island-ready looks featuring rich, tribal-inspired prints. Among some of our favorite looks are a Stella McCartney frock featuring a bright coral-reef design, a floral-embellished dress by Marni and an easy, breezy scarf-print Valentino maxi.  Of course, as impressive as the fashion may be, the real winner here is the adorableness that is the Ambrosio family.  Anja may only be six-years-old, but make no mistake about it, that’s a supermodel-in-the-making right there!

Check out the full spread below and be sure to pick up a copy of Glamour magazine‘s April issue, now available on newsstands!

For the occasion, Kate Moss joined fellow VIP guests Naomi Campbell, Victoria and David Beckham and FKA Twiggs at private dinner held at the V&A, where she proceeded to recreate the iconic dance she performed in the late designer’s June 2004 ‘Black Show’ dressed in the same skull-print spaghetti-strap gown. What can we say, she’s still got the moves! ~ Grazia UK

Coachella may still be regarded as the most fashionable music festival, but SXSW is looking to change that. This year, the Austin, Texas-based festival is introducing a fashion-focused platform called SXstyle, which will aim to explore the relationship between fashion, art, technology, and culture.

After hosting just 7 episodes of “Fashion Police”, comedian Kathy Griffin has announced that she is leaving the show, citing creative differences with the E! network. Griffin, who’s a noted feminist and equal rights activist, seems to have taken issue with the often cruel jokes she was forced to make at the expense of those on the red carpet, writing in a statement: “There is plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing peoples bodies into it … I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.” ~ Yahoo Style

Newly minted Miss Vogue cover girl Cressida Bonas is teaming up with Mulberry on a funky dance-inspired film for the brand’s latest project, ‘From England, With Love.’ As well as showing off her superb dancing skills in the film, Cressida also gives the first look at Mulberry’s brand new Buttercup Dress, fresh from the Spring Summer 2015 capsule collection. Now, excuse us as we go practice our Cressida-inspired twirls and hair flips. ~ YouTube

Erin Heatherton Gets a Banging New Do, Fuels Our Fringe Obsession

 

What is it about bangs that immediately adds cool to any look?  From the wispy, laid-back appeal of Jane Birkin and Charlotte Gainsbourg to the mussed-up, modern ease of Freja Beha Erichsen and Mica Arganaraz, the appeal of fringe is impossible to deny. Back in February, Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo had us considering booking an emergency appointment with our hairstylist when she stepped out at the Super Bowl sporting piece-y fringe and slept-in waves and now, it appears that former Angel Erin Heatherton is giving the look a spin.

A Model’s Guide to Getting Ready in 10 Minutes of Less

For most of us, the act of getting ready for the world each morning is a blurry-eyed, caffeine-fueled affair—hardly what you’d call chic—and yet there exists a stylish group of women who make the whole thing appear so easy. Yes, the models.  In all of their beauty wisdom, these women have mastered the art of getting ready quickly (and looking good while doing it)— a feat that was accomplished not with an army of beauty professionals, but in the back seat of a cab en route to another show, or while flying across seas. With a just a few key products and a time-saving trick or two, they’ve formulated the perfect on-the-go beauty look all in half the time it would normally take us to get out of bed.  Here, we asked six top models to share their no-fail guide to getting up and out the door in just 10 minutes or less. As it turns out, getting runway-ready doesn’t take a whole lot more than a good mascara and concealer (ok, and winning the genetic jackpot certainly helps too).  See how Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid and others get ready in a flash in the slideshow below!

Cara Delevingne Smolders in the First Poster for John Green’s “Paper Towns”

She may be Hollywood’s next breakout star, but it looks like Cara Delevingne hasn’t given up on her modeling skills just yet.

On Thursday, the official poster for Paper Towns was released and if we didn’t know any better, we’d think we were ogling at her latest beauty campaign!  With her wind-blown hair, smoldering gaze and signature bold brows, Cara single-handedly steals the spotlight from her co-star Nat Wolff— though we’ll admit, he still looks pretty good peering out from behind Cara’s chestnut locks.

The film, based on author John Green’s young adult novel of the same name, centers on Margo Roth Spiegelman (played by Cara) and Quentin Jacobsen (Wolff), two high school students who grew up next to each other, but have since grown apart.  When Margo unexpectedly pops back into Quentin’s life, climbing through his bedroom window late one night dressed as a ninja, she urges him to seek an ingenious campaign of revenge.  The next day, Quentin discovers Margo has disappeared, and he’s left to decipher clues left behind to figure out the mystery of where’s she gone and who she really is.  Intriguing, no?

From Marc Jacobs to DKNY, scouting new modeling talent via Instagram is a common occurrence these days. In a new interview with The Cut, casting director Noah Shelley shares his thoughts on the medium, explaining why it serves as a new alternative to street casting.“I find that my time is better used if I actually spend four or five hours on the Internet or on Instagram than spending four or five hours walking around,” he says. ~ The Cut

Worlds collided (as time travel seems to exist now) when Kate Middleton visited the set of BBC’s period drama Downton Abbey on Thursday at Ealing Studios in West London. For the occasion, Middleton wore a a cream coat by British maternity label Jojo Maman Bebe (get it for $103 while you still can!) paired with black suede heels and carried a black clutch. If possible, she looked even more like the modern day princess that she is in contrast with the 20th century surroundings. ~ Yahoo Style

Here’s What 8 Top Models Would Steal From the Runways (If They Could Get Away With It)

Welp, another fashion season has come and gone and as always, it’s left us with nothing but feelings of lust, greed and envy for the pieces we can’t have (at least not for another six months).  Right now, we’re dreaming of Chanel bags, Prada shoes and essentially everything from the Proenza Schouler runway, wondering how we’ll ever manage to get our hands on the best of the fall 2015 collections.  But if there’s one thing that we learned while making the rounds backstage at the shows this season, it’s that we’re not alone in our desire to swipe a few pieces straight from the runways.  Though models are sometimes gifted with pieces from the shows they walk, it’s not a regular occurrence, nor does it guarantee that they’ll take home the items they’re really craving.  Curious to see if our fall 2015 wish lists match up with those of fashion’s most stylish-savvy individuals, we asked eight top models to share the pieces they wish they could steal from the runways (if they could get away with it, of course).  Scroll through the slideshow below to see what Gigi Hadid, Jessica Stam, Binx Walton and others would love to get their hands if they could.
