10 Things to Know About Alex Pettyfer’s New Model Girlfriend

Marloes Horst isn’t exactly a household name just yet, but if she keeps up her current pace, that soon may change!

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie seems to be the name on everyone’s lips today, earning the attention of more than just the usual SI fan club as it’s confirmed that she is now dating 24-year-old British actor Alex Pettyfer (aka the shirtless, cowboy hat-wearing hunk in 2012′s Magic Mike)!

“Marloes and Alex have been together seriously for a few weeks now. They are very much a couple,” Marloes’s agent at Next Model Management told E! Online. “They are really happy.”

The couple reportedly met through friends, and earlier this month, visited Disneyland in Anaheim, California. If that weren’t all cute enough, to celebrate Alex’s birthday today, Marloes shared a picture on Instagram of the actor and her locked in a tender embrace with the caption, “Happy Birthday baby @a1pettyfer.”

But, let’s not forget, Marloes has been a top model for quite some time now, and has the expansive portfolio to prove it!  We for one, have been fans of the Dutch beauty and have been lucky enough to catch up with the stunner in the past.  In anticipation of the model’s future success, we’ve rounded together ten of our favorite must-know facts about Marloes for you to brush up on before she hits it big— that is, more so than she already has!

Look of the Week: Hilary Rhoda in Sparkling Jason Wu


This week has been all about black tie galas, and while there was no shortage of floor-sweeping gowns to choose from at the annual amfAR Inspiration Gala in Sao Paulo, today we’re turning our attention to an event closer to home: Tiffany & Co.’s 2014 Blue Book Gala.  Held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Thursday night, the annual star-studded event played host to some of Hollywood and fashion’s finest, including Katie Holmes, Kate Bosworth and Jessica Biel, not to mention today’s Look of the Week winner, Hilary Rhoda!

The Estee Lauder model struck the perfect balance of sexy and sophisticated in this dazzling Jason Wu Spring 2014 look.  Pulled straight off the runway, the spring ensemble consisted of a navy sweater paired with a bias-cut and ultra-sheer midi skirt that was embellished with shimmering sequins throughout to create a painterly effect.  Hilary completed the look with Tabitha Simmons embellished peep-toe ankle-strap heels, a box clutch and of course, a pair of Tiffany & Co. Legacy diamond earrings.

While the skirt may be a tad bold for some, we love how effortlessly polished and cool the future Mrs. Sean Avery looks here on the red blue carpet.  It’s a Look of the Week win if we’ve ever seen one!
