We all know Karlie Kloss can walk the runway like nobody’s business, but can she perfect Blue Steel?

The 22-year-old supermodel and former Victoria’s Secret Angel is rumored to making her big screen debut in Zoolander 2, the sequel to the 2001 comedy starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.  According to E! News, “an insider” has confirmed that Karlie is definitely on board for the film, while fellow catwalker Gigi Hadid was also offered the role, but turned it down.  Other models named on the short list to appear in the flick include Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Alessandra Ambrosio.

The long-awaited sequel was announced (in the best way possible, mind you) on the runway at Valentino’s fall 2015 show in Paris this morning, with both Stiller and Wilson (in character as Derek Zoolander and Hansel, natch) strutting down the catwalk in a real life ‘walk-off.’ While Karlie may not have been present to witness the duo’ return to the runway, they did have the support of Anna Wintour, who stopped by backstage before the show for a quick Instagram snap.

While few details have been revealed, the film will reportedly “follow Derek Zoolander’s process of self-reinvention” with the screenplay being written by Jennifer Aniston’s beau Justin Theroux and Stiller in the director’s chair.  The film is currently in production and set to hit theaters in February 2016.

The Victoria’s Secret Models’ Guide to Perfect Beach Hair

It’s an indisputable fact that nothing looks better or feels more like summer than tousled, sea-swept beach hair. Another indisputable fact: no one pulls off the look better than the Victoria’s Secret Angels.  We got a taste of the models’ effortlessly tousled tresses last month during the brand’s first-ever Swim Special in Puerto Rico and now, with the VS PINK Spring Break Bash and, believe it or not, summer lying just around the corner, we’re primed and ready to experience an onslaught of the sun-glazed beachy hair snaps in our Instagram feeds in the coming weeks. To help quell our inevitable hair envy, we recently caught up with four VS Swim stunners and asked them to share the secrets to their perfect beach hair.  Scroll through the slideshow below for tips, tricks and product picks from Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge and more!

Cara Delevingne Returns to the Runway for Karl Lagerfeld’s Brasserie de Chanel

Cara Delevingne has been highly selective with her catwalk appearances these days, but as it turns out, even she’s not immune to the power of Karl Lagerfeld’s influence.  In her first show of the season — and her first since walking arm-in-arm with Lagerfeld at the Chanel Metiers D’Arts show in Salzburg back in November — the recent front row fixture took her rightful place back on the runway this morning to open and close Chanel’s highly anticipated fall 2015 show.

This season, Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a traditional French brasserie, aptly titled Brasserie Gabrielle, which saw models strut down the ‘aisles-as-runway’ before settling down at tables or at the several erected bars to enjoy champagne and croissants. After performing her runway duties, Cara, who appeared to be rocking a new shade of dark chocolate brown hair, immediately retreated to the bar area with Kendall Jenner where they appeared to enjoy grapefruit juice and jokes aplenty. Meanwhile, Chanel favorites Joan Smalls and Soo Joo Park were spotted chatting in one of the venue’s corner booths, where waiters promptly took their orders as they checked Instagram and whispered across the table to one another.

The chic cafe setting served more than aesthetic purposes though. By letting the natural flow of the cafe culture play out, Lagerfeld infused his “French Collection” with more than just his showmanship; he gave it life. Models were able to take off their outerwear pieces — a range of tweed jackets and sportier bombers — and hang them on the provided coat racks, while bags were flung across the tables, just as they would in real life. Elsewhere,  the designer’s trim pencil skirts, anorak-like jackets, cozy knits and practical cap-toed slingbacks felt just right for afternoon spent at the brasserie— Chanel or otherwise.

Modelinia AM Reads: How Karlie Kloss is Giving New Meaning to “Off-Duty Chic” This Season

Last night, the rumor mill was buzzing with reports that Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne had been involved in an altercation over Rihanna at a Paris Fashion Week party.  But as it turns out, those stories couldn’t be farther from the truth, according to Naomi anyways. ~ Vogue UK 

Valentino staged its usual beautiful show this morning, but showgoers were in for a huge surprise—Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller, the comedic duo from one of fashion’s favorite films, Zoolander, both walked the runway. Just look at those ‘blue steel’ stares! ~ Harper’s Bazaar

Speaking of Delevingne, the model has reprised her role as the star of Topshop’s latest campaign— and it’s one of her best yet! We can’t help but covet every look from the S/S 2015 collection, especially the laid-back denim-on-denim, Versace-like black dress and retro pussy bow blouse. ~ WhoWhatWear

Those embellished headphones from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall 2015 runway show are now on sale — for a whopping $7,095! They’re pretty sure, but we’ll just stick with our free Apple earbuds for now. ~ Yahoo Style

We’re heard of celebrities trademarking everything from their names to their backup dancer’s stage costumes (we’re looking at you Katy Perry), but insuring one’s legs — no that’s a first. According to the National Enquirer (so take that for what it’s worth), Taylor Swift is reportedly getting her legs insured for $40 million before she heads out on tour this spring. We would what it cost to insure her signature cat-eye and red lip combo? ~ Refinery29

If there’s one model who knows a thing or two about creating viral social media posts, it’s Chrissy Teigen.  In a new interview with Elle magazine, the Instagram pro got onto the topic of her popular social media platforms, revealing the number one thing she finds most annoying on Instagram.  Are you guilty of it? ~ Elle

Models are in a category all their own when it comes to their enviable street style looks— but could the ‘model off-duty’ uniform as we know it (skinny jeans and leather moto jackets) be headed for chicer heights? At a point in the Fashion Month cycle when everyone else has practically given up, Karlie Kloss appears to be hitting her fashion stride with a mix of effortlessly chic ensembles that are redefining what it means to be “off-duty chic.” ~ Modelinia

Lottie Moss Just Made Her Runway Debut at Sonia Rykiel

If a legit modeling contract and a Calvin Klein Jean campaign haven’t yet convinced you of Charlotte (aka Lottie) Moss‘ supermodel potential, consider this: the 17-year-old just made her runway debut!

In a “blink and you’ll miss her” moment the young model took to the runway at Sonia Rykiel today in Paris, where she impressed in a velvet black and printed playsuit and fluffy bedhead-style hair. As in seasons past, the runway lineup read like a “who’s who” of the modeling community with such notables as Constance Jablonski, Anna Ewers, Lizzie and Georgia May Jagger and Gigi Hadid leading the march.  Considering the individual star power of each of her co-stars, we’d say the future is looking bright for Lottie. And with two of the biggest shows of the season still on deck, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was the last we say of Kate’s mini-me in Paris this week. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: Cara Delevingne Skips the Runway to Show Off One of Her Best Off-Duty Looks Yet


Just when we thought Cara had achieved max coolness with her Stella McCartney show look, the It Brit took to the streets of Paris this afternoon to prove us dead wrong.  Feeling inspired perhaps by her rumored new girlfriend St. Vincent, Cara transformed from catwalk queen (more like front row fixture these days) to music protege while hitting the Chanel boutique following the show. Though still dressed in her insanely cool pant suit, Cara upped the cool factor of the look with the addition of a wide-brimmed hat and a fancy new white Chanel guitar.  With her Beatles-style mirrored shades and chic musical accessory tucked under one arm, Cara looked every bit the rockstar in-training, which we can only assume is bad news for those of us still hoping that she’ll make a return to the runway sometime in the very near future.

Crystal Renn Solidifies the Platinum Hair Trend

When Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto took their seats at Balmain’s fall 2015 show in Paris last week, they unleashed the kind of paparazzi firestorm that even a royal wedding couldn’t inspire.  Before the show had even ended, the two were trending across the Twittersphere and just like that platinum mania found its way back into the fashion lexicon. Still, it takes three to make a trend and it wasn’t until we made our monthly trip to the newsstands this weekend that we found the missing piece to the bleached hair puzzle: Crystal Renn.

Never one to shy away from a bold beauty transformation, Crystal graces the cover of this month’s special eighth year anniversary edition of L’Official Singapore looking unrecognizable with a set of bleached brows and sleek, icy blonde strands.  That’s right— leave it to the chameleon-like model to take the celebrity-sponsored look and turn it into a certified fashion trend.  And she’s not the only one doing it either.  The collectable fashion issue also includes seven other supermodel-fronted covers shot by famed photographer Steven Klein.  Among those taking the platinum plunge are Angela Lindvall, Liu Wen and Jamie Bochert, while Naomi Campbell, Guinevere Van Seenus, Maria Borges and Xiao Wen Ju round out the full cast. So let it be known: Kim K may have gotten the buzz, but these models were one giant step ahead.
