Behati Prinsloo, Karen Elson and More Toast the Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic!

The annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is always a high-class affair. Models, celebrities, and socialites pull out all the chic stops to spend the day mingling, sipping bubbly, and stomping grass divets made by the horses on the field. This past weekend celebrities like Lupita Nyong’o, Julianne Moore and Aaron Paul were joined by supermodels Behati Prinsloo, Karen Elson, Shanina Shaik and Kate Bock at New Jersey’s Liberty State Park for the glamorous all-day event.

Having been given the honor of throwing out the first ball, Behati made sure to impress in a matching grey Calvin Klein Collection V-neck top and wide-leg trousers.  Meanwhile, Karen Elson brought the glam in a flowy skin-tone halter dress, while Shanina stood out in a white lace inspired jumpsuit by Alice McCall.

With the parade of fashion and endless flow of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, it was easy to forget that there was also a sporting event taking place.  Argentine polo star and Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras managed to clench the lead for his team, Black Watch with a 12-1o victory, which he later celebrated by sprayed a big bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne all over the field.

Look of the Week: Poppy Delevingne Tops All With Her Breathtaking Pucci Dress

The mega-glamourous Cannes Film Festival may have come to an end for 2014, but there’s no shortage of noteworthy style on our radar this week.

Though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West dominated the media with their elaborate nuptials for what feels like forever now, we for one have been far more intrigued by Poppy Delevingne‘s equally as impressive second wedding ceremony in Marrakech.  Just two weeks after tying the knot in a private ceremony held at the St. Paul’s Church in London, newlyweds Poppy and and her husband James Cook continued the celebration with a second Moroccan-themed ceremony held at the city’s exclusive La Mamounia hotel on Sunday.

With flower crowns, designer turbans and camel rides, Poppy and James’s wedding proved to be the perfect antithesis to the Kimye extravaganza, and yet, still every bit as glamourous. Case and point: the model’s breathtaking custom-made gown designed by Emilio Pucci’s Peter Dundas.  With embroidered pastel flowers strewn across a sweeping two tiered silhouette, lacing detail at the décolletage, and billowing chiffon sleeves, the gown perfectly reflected the relaxed, hippy vibes of the star-filled celebration.  Add that to Poppy’s undeniable newlywed glow and perfectly undone boho-waves, and you have what is undeniably our favorite look of the week, and quite possible of the season!

 

From the Runway to the Big Screen: The Supermodels’s Go-To Skin Guru Takes on X-Men’s Jennifer Lawrence

It’s Friday, which means that it’s the perfect time to make a trip to the mega-plex and indulge in some much needed cine-magic.  Most likely, that means settling in with this summer’s hottest blockbuster, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The film, which is the latest in the famed Marvel franchise, sees the beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from 2011′s X-Men: First Class, in order to change a major historical event and fight in an epic battle that could save the future of mankind.  Oddly enough, two other worlds were also joining forces behind-the-scenes of the movie with the help of skincare guru, Dr. David Colbert.

In addition to maintaining busy practices in Manhattan and Los Angeles and promoting a luxury skin care line that bears his name, Dr. Colbert has also made a name for himself protecting the skin of a large number of today’s top models, including Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.  Naturally, with such a high-profile client list, it didn’t take long for Hollywood to come knocking at his door, including the cast and crew of the latest X-Men flick!

Brought on to work directly with Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique— a character previously made famous by former model-turned-actress Rebecca Romijn— Dr. Colbert was tasked with implementing his supermodel-approved skincare solutions on the Oscar-winning actress to ensure that her painted-on costume did not irritate her otherwise delicate, alabaster skin.  Additionally, he was hired to do all of the safety testing for the makeup, which included numerous set visits and countless skin and allergy tests, acting as something of an extra “insurance policy” to ensure Lawrence’s camera-ready glow.

Suki Waterhouse Lands a Role in the Divergent Sequel

Suki Waterhouse may be one of fashion’s hottest ‘it-girls’ right now, but that doesn’t seem to have deterred her any from her Hollywood ambitions.  Like her BFF Cara Delevingne, Suki is eager to bolster her big screen credits, a task that just received a major push thanks to a new role in the sequel of a Hollywood blockbuster.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 22-year-old British model will star alongside Shailene Woodley and Theo James in Insurgent, the follow-up to the recently released sci-fi thriller Divergent.  Due out in March 2015, the film sees most of the cast returning including Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winsley and Zoe Kravitz.  Suki, will play the role of Marlene, a member of the Dauntless faction, a character who featured in the Divergent book but didn’t make it into the first film.

The role will be Suki’s first in the sci-fi genre, while she’s also scored a role in the upcoming British rom-com Love, Rosie starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, including a brief role alongside fellow model-turned-actress Agyness Deyn in the 2012 indie film, Pusher.

In the meantime, Suki is rumored to have enlisted her boyfriend, Bradley Cooper‘s, acting coach, which will no doubt improve her chances of scoring another blockbuster role in the very near future.  Congrats Suki!
