Valentina Zalyaeva, Cameron Russell and More Celebrate the Best Bodies in the World

Here at Modelinia, we’ve long praised today’s top models for their exceptional health and fitness inspiration.  But for those who still have doubts about fashion’s leading ladies, we not have the opinion of a true health guru to back us up: Self magazine’s new editor-in-chief, Joyce Chang.

“I think there’s a new guard of models that take so much pride in really embracing a healthy lifestyle and promoting the longevity of their careers that we haven’t seen before,” Chang explained from The Sky Room of the New Museum on Thursday night.  ”Of course, models have to take care of themselves for the sake of their careers, but I think we should all be inspired to pay attention to our health, working out regularly and eating right.  I really admire someone who spends the time and dedicates themselves to it,” which is a common factor among the women we featured in our October issue.”

What’s Trending: Supercharged Red Lips Shine Bright for Fall

Red lips have been delivering a heavy dose of femininity to the masses for more than a hundred years, but is it just us, or does the latest incarnation of the shade feel a bit like someone suddenly cranked the dial way up on the intensity?

Taking the place of last year’s goth-glam shades, this season’s classic red lip draws inspiration from its Old Hollywood roots, but with a supercharged level of shine that feels perfectly suited for fall’s plethora of luxe fabrics.  Think more high-impact vinyl-red than creamy merlot. The new red lip has a scene-stealing attitude that is hard to deny, and even harder to resist.

Drawing inspiration from our favorite crimson beauties, we rounded up five of the best new red lipsticks of the season strictly for your shopping pleasure.  Shop them now in the slideshow below!

We knew Liu Wen had something big in store for us when she posted a photo of herself wearing the Apple Watch at a Colette store event during Paris Fashion Week this month.  At the time, the model hinted that she might have worked with the tech device before, and now we know why.

Wrapped around the wrist of the Chinese supermodel, the Apple Watch is making its editorial debut on the cover of the November issue of Vogue China. Shot by Davis Sims and styled by Karl Templer, the supermodel is seen a multi-color striped Celine dress paired with her 38mm Apple Watch in 18-carat yellow gold— the same one she wore in her much buzzed-about Instagram post.
