Model Twitpics of The Week!

What a week it’s been for the models! Fresh off the heels of the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London (believe us, we’re impatiently waiting with baited breath for the show to air next week on CBS…) a scan of our various social feeds showed us that Karlie Kloss was returning stateside after walking in the runway spectacular.  Another angel, Behati Prinsloo, showed off one of the largest bouquets of roses we have EVER seen, from none other than her hubby – the one and only Adam Levine.  Moving on from London, Chrissy Teigen took to her Instagram to announce that her and her singer/songwriter husband John Legend will be partnering with Feed Projects this holiday season, while Kendall Jenner showed off her Calvins (as well as her amazing physique) during LA’s two days of rain alongside a quote from Mean Girls.  To see what some of your other favorite models were up to this week, check out the slideshow below!

VS Model Confidential: Ming Xi Reveals Her Runway-Ready Beauty Tips and Style Obsessions

The high point of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show  is surely the moment the Angels strut out in the brand’s wildest wings, but for those of us with press credentials, it’s worth noting the excitement that goes on behind the pink curtain.  Models are strolling around in silky pink bathrobes, posing on top of tables for a sea of photographers, perfecting their glossy pouts in the mirror, and if you’re lucky, sharing their best-kept tips on all things fashion and beauty!  This year, we were lucky enough to catch up with Chinese supermodel Ming Xi to quiz her about her latest skincare obsessions and tips to creating the perfect street style look.  Find out what Ming has to say on all of that and more in our exclusive interview featured after the jump!

Look of the Week: Behati Prinsloo’s Swinging VS After Party Look

When Victoria’s Secret decided to host a black tie ball in lieu of its usual after party, we knew the looks were going to be far from traditional. Where one would expect modest ball gowns, there were instead micro-mini hemlines and all-over cutouts, making it hands down one of the sexiest red (or should we say pink) carpets of the year.  Still, even in a sea of designer-clad supermodels, there is always one leggy beauty who reigns supreme and this year, that beauty was Behati Prinsloo.

Swapping her bedazzled wings for an attention-grabbing sequin fringed Tom Ford dress, the Namibian stunner stole the show with a look that was equal parts sexy and chic.  Though missing arguably her greatest accessory, her handsome husband Adam Levine, Behati still managed to come out on top with a simple pairing of caged stiletto heels, a smoldering makeup look and of course, those bombshell waves.  It may not have been the most revealing look on the pink carpet that night, but trust us when we say, it killed on the dance floor!

Check out the slideshow below for the full look at the official VS Afterparty featuring all of your favorite Angels and their jaw-dropping ensembles.

What the Models Are Wearing to Art Basel 2014

With the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show officially behind us, it’s time to shift our gaze back to that other all important A-list event making headlines this week: Art Basel Miami.

Generally acknowledged as the most important art show in the US, this year’s four-day art extravaganza kicked off in Miami Beach on Wednesday with an influx of gallery openings, private dinners and red carpet events.  As always, there have been a number of supermodels on hand, some of whom were even spotted on the VS runway just days before hitting the city’s Art Deco district. Hot off the Angel jet, Adriana Lima made a glamorous appearance at Wednesday’s Timeless Portofino Gala for watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen.  Joined by fellow models Karolina Kurkova and Toni Garrn, Adriana swapped her bedazzled wings for a elegant black long-sleeved gown topped off with a classic IWC watch and John Vartanian black diamond earrings.  Jourdan Dunn, on the other hand, was far from shy when it came to flashing her toned midriff in racy black lace crop top and matching skirt at Paper Magazine’s party celebrating the release of Kim Kardashian’s ‘Break the Internet’ issue.  Meanwhile, at Louis Vuitton’s private dinner, Miranda Kerr had us green with envy in her chic mini skirt and patent boot combo, compliments of the French fashion house, while supermodel Elle Macpherson could be seen giving off some major Seventies vibes at the Marc Quinn and Dee Ocleppo collaboration launch.

And to think that’s just within the first two days! Get the full look at what the models are wearing to Art Basel 2014 in the slideshow below.
