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!

It’s Been a Crazy Busy Week for Cara Delevingne!

Not long ago, Cara Delevingne’s agent at Storm Model Management, the brilliant Sarah Doukasrevealed that the multi-hyphenate model turns down more than seventy percent of the jobs that are offered to her.  Seventy percent! And yet, the British beauty still manages to be everywhere— the evidence of which we’ve noted countless times this week. From modeling to socializing, Cara hasn’t just been on the radar, she’s overtaken it completely, making headlines in more ways than one.  We’ll admit, even we’re finding it difficult to keep up with the 22-year-old super at this point.  That’s why we thought it’d be best if we broke down Cara’s week in the news starting first with the debut of her racy new campaign John Hardy.  Catch up on Cara’s week in the news below!

The Models’ Favorite French Pharmacy Beauty Buys Revealed

 

New Yorkers have Duane Reade, Londoners have Boots, but let’s face it, nothing holds a candle to the quaint les pharmacies of the French.   Known for their highly effective formulas, reasonable prices and use of pure, natural ingredients like “thermal water,” the skincare and makeup treasures stored at these bastions of beauty have long been held as some of the finest in the industry, promising everything from glowing, acne-free skin to smaller pores and more even complexions.  It’s no wonder then that as soon as any model, make-up artist or beauty editor arrives in Paris, the first thing they do is head straight to the local pharmacy to stock up on the country’s famous hard-to-find brands.

With Paris haute couture week now just a few days away (shows kick off on Sunday, January 25) we thought it was high time we looked back to our archives for a curated list of the models’ favorite French pharmacy buys to help us take the guesswork out of primping like a Parisian this season. Scroll through the slideshow below for top picks from Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Emily DiDonato and more!

It’s Here! Kendall Jenner Stars in Her First Estee Lauder Commercial

Back in November, Kendall Jenner made headlines when it was announced that she had scored a contract with Estee Lauder, following a push in the company’s ongoing strategy to target younger audiences.  Now, after months of anticipation, the beauty behemoth has released Kendall’s first full campaign and as expected, it’s stunning!

Seriously, girl is looking good in this video, which promotes the brand’s new Little Black Primer, a lash coat that you can use under your mascara as a primer or over to make it longlasting and waterproof.  Set to the beat of a club-like soundtrack, the video sees Kendall perfecting some of those signature beauty commercial moves we all know so well: gazing longingly into the camera, pursing one’s lips into a “shhhhh” pose, hiding behind wind-blown tresses.   She even gives us a taste of her dramatic runway walk, which we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the coming month.

Along with the commercial, the reality star gone supermodel also dished on a few of her favorite black items for an interview with the Estée Edit. On the topic of eyeliner, Kendall admits, “I’m really bad at putting on my own eyeliner! But I like kajal liners that you can put on and smudge. I sort of have O.C.D with my eye makeup so even if it’s supposed to look messy I still try to make it look perfect!”  The struggle is real.

All in all, the advert definitely has a more youthful vibe than we’re used to seeing from the brand, and with the push from Kendall’s social channels (her post of the video already has over 335K likes on Instagram), we’re sure it won’t be long before the Little Black Primer is every bit as popular as the model herself.

Check out the video below to see Kendall in her first official ad as an Estee Lauder spokesmodel!

Chanel Iman to Make Her Big Screen Debut Alongside A$AP Rocky and Zoë Kravitz

You’ve seen her in the pages of Vogue, walking the runway for Victoria’s Secret and the 50th Anniversary issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, but something tells us you’ve never seen Chanel Iman quite like this!

Following in the multi-talented footsteps of such former model-turned-actresses as Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyDree Hemingway and Cara Delevingne, Chanel is set to make her big screen in the new indie film Dope, premiering later this week at the Sundance Film Festival.  Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the film follows a modern-day teen named Malcolm, a Nineties hip-hop geek, attempting to survive life in The Bottoms, a tough neighborhood in Inglewood, CA filled gangsters and drugs dealers, while attempting to make his dream of being accepted into Harvard come true.  Starring alongside Shameik Moore, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” star Tony Revolori, Zoë Kravitz and her ex-boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Chanel plays the role of Lily, who, from what we can tell by the trailer alone, appears to be every bit as alluring as her real-life self.

To check out the full trailer head over to Entertainment Weekly and stay tuned for more on the film’s Sundance release!
