Fashion Flashback: This Vintage Video of Kate Moss is Pure ’90s Goodness

In the spirit of the upcoming holiday weekend, allow us to break up your work day and present you with this vintage video of Kate Moss— because who doesn’t love a good throwback clip?

The 12-minute fashion film, entitled “The More Visible They Make Me, The More Invisible I Become,” comes courtesy of the legendary photographer Nick Knight, who is just now treating the world to its goodness after first shooting it in 1995— his first time working with Kate.

Shot from the perspective of a stalker, the film features surveillance-type footage—a comment on “the debate and controversy that surrounded surveillance culture at the time of filming— and follows Kate going about her normal day, to create an eerie, sinister play on “anonymity, fame and privacy.” It’s not until the final minutes of the video (around the 8:12 mark) that Kate’s voice can be heard discussing the pros and cons of her burgeoning fame, observing that modeling  is “kind of freaky” but “the money’s not bad.”

This could very well be the greatest thing you see all day. Enjoy!

 

What to Pack for a Stylish Memorial Day Weekend!

This coming Monday is Memorial Day, which means summer is officially underway!  For many, this means the first real getaway of the season, and with that, the first time in a long time that you’ll have to consider your wardrobe choices in advance.  Though packing for three or four days may seem easier than say, packing for a full-blown vacation, in reality we know it can be every bit as challenging.  Think about it: a shorter trip means a smaller weekend bag, and a smaller bag means less sartorial options.  Luckily, we’ve spent enough time tracking the models’ style to know exactly what you’ll need (and want) for a stylish Memorial Day weekend.  Scroll through the slideshow below for the full look at our editors’s top Memorial Day Weekend picks inspired by Doutzen KroesRosie Huntington-Whiteley and more!

A Supermodel-Palooza Lands at Chopard’s Glitzy Cannes Gala

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then Chopard must be the models’ greatest friend of all, because these ladies were literally dripping in diamonds at last night’s exclusive Chopard Backstage Dinner and After Party.

Dressed in a rainbow of floor-sweeping pastel Elie Saab gowns and of course, lots of Chopard jewels, models Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Eva Herzigova, Liu Wen, Petra Nemcova and Arlenis Sosa took the glitzy gala by storm— surely no easy feat considering the overwhelming extravagance of the soiree.  Held inside an airport hanger, the party was said to feature an appearance by Kool and the Gang, a DJ who manned the tunes from inside the cockpit of a jumbo jet, bars made to look like tiny grass huts and of course, an endless flow of champagne.

In addition to the crew of Elie Saab beauties, there was also a number of other well-dressed models in attendance, including Suki Waterhouse, who gave off Old-Hollywood vibes in a slinky Stella McCartney number, and Coco Rocha who stunned in a striking white Gabriela Cadena gown.

Check out the slideshow below for the full look into last night’s supermodel-studded Chopard party:

White Hot Beauty Looks for Your Memorial Day Weekend

It’s almost Memorial Day weekend, the official kick-off to summer and thus, the ‘official’ season of white.  In this case, we’re talking about white makeup— a trend that the models continue to embrace both on and off the red carpet.

To start, we love the idea of ditching our go-to smokey eye look in favor of a single swipe of our favorite white eye pencil— a look that is not only summer appropriate, but also naturally flattering as it instantly perks up tired eyes (you know, after all of that partying you’ll be doing).  Bregje Heinen recently rocked the look at the  Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Beach House party, where she proved that a bright white eye can be every bit as sexy as its smokey counterpart.

Still, if eye makeup isn’t quite your thing, Heidy de la Rosa and Gigi Hadid have another white hot option for you: the stark white mani.  Simple though it may be, an all white manicure is a fresh, modern way to stand out from the crowd this weekend  as it tends to pop against any other color you’re wearing.  Bonus: white nails also tend to enhance a sun-kissed tan, which if we’re lucky, will also be on the agenda come Memorial Day.

Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo Pose for Their First Vogue Cover

Forget Kimye!  This month, Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo are taking their love to the cover of Vogue Espana‘s June 2014 issue, and they’re heating things up like never before!

Marking their first cover as a couple, Irina and Cristiano pose side by side for the magazine’s “Love and Football’ issue, where the focus wasn’t so much on the couple dressing up as “undressing” entirely.  Or at least in Cristiano’s case as he poses stark naked behind his stunning supermodel girlfriend.

Shot my Mario Testino, the steamy new cover comes courtesy of legendary stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who, as Irina explains, was a saving grace of sorts in getting the shoot to print.

Cannes Film Festival: All of the Model Looks You Missed This Weekend!

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival is in full swing and as expected, the stars are out in full force!  Since kicking things off with the premiere of Grace of Monaco last Wednesday, the Cannes red carpet has been a non-stop parade of supermodels and Hollywood stars, all of whom have been kept busy by one star-studded screening after another— not to mention the countless A-list parties being hosted in between.

The weekend started off on a high note on Saturday with an exclusive bash hosted by Giorgio Armani and Vanity Fair‘s editor in chief Graydon Carter.  Held at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, the party drew an overwhelming number of model VIPs including Suki Waterhouse, Daisy Lowe, Natasha Poly and Valentina Zalyaeva.  In true Cannes fashion, the models mingled with Hollywood’s finest around the infinity pool overlooking the Mediterranean coastline— no doubt a perfect backdrop for all of those selfies Suki and Daisy could be seen snapping with Justin Beiber.
