Modelinia AM Reads: 20 Perfect New Year’s Eve Party Hair Ideas Inspired by the Models

2014 was undoubtedly the year of the “celebrity” model, with Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin et. al. making more headlines than most in the fashion industry.  And now, by the looks of the December cover of L’Officiel Italia starring Dylan Penn, daughter of actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright, it appears the trend is going nowhere fast.  ~ E!

New year, new ‘do! Over the weekend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley chopped off her blonde locks in favor of a glossy new ‘lob.’ The supermodel took to social media to debut her look (but of course), crediting brother/sister dup George and Sally Northwood with the coveted new style. Could this be the official “Karlie cut” or 2015? ~ Refinery29 

Madonna may have killed it in her new Versace campaign, but believe it or not, she didn’t get paid a dime for it! Instead, Madonna requested all proceeds be devolved to a hospital she started in Malawi, Africa, revealed Donatella Versace in a recent interview.  The designer also went on to discuss her close friendship with the queen of pop and how the singer asked that her photos not be overly re-touched. Kudos, Madge! ~ The Cut
