Modelinia AM Reads: Gisele Bundchen Wasn’t the Only Supermodel Celebrating the Patriots Super Bowl Win

Katy Perry brought her A game to the Super Bowl on Sunday, performing hit after hit with star guest appearances by Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott. The performance was filled with so many buzzed-about moments, you might need to watch this recap video a few times to let it all sink in. ~ YouTube

After stealing the show at Glendale, Arizona’s University of Phoenix Stadium, Katy Perry topped off her exciting Super Bowl Half Time performance with some fresh new ink! While still in her flashy stage hair and makeup, the “Roar” singer enlisted the help of a tattoo artist to help commemorate the occasion with a tattoo of the Roman numerals “XLIX” on her ring finger. ~ Us Weekly 

Whether you tune into the Super Bowl for the game or the halftime show, there’s no way you can avoid seeing at least a few of the ads. From Mindy Kaling’s hilarious spot for Nationwide to Budweiser’s adorable “Lost Dog” commercial, this year’s ads offered a little something for everyone. In case you missed any, here’s a quick run-through of the 10 best (and 5 worst) Super Bowl 2015 commercials.  Who had your vote? ~ Billboard

You already know Anna Ewers as a Pirelli Calendar pinup, an Alexander Wang favorite, and a Moschino Barbie girl. But now the German model has taken on yet another role as the newest face of Mango. The Spanish brand has tapped the 21-year-old to star in a 1970s-themed campaign for spring 2015, the behind-the-scenes video of which you can check out here! ~ 

In other campaign news, Diane von Furstenberg has linked up with Daria Werbowy for her spring 2015 campaign. Shot by Emma Summerton, the ad sees the Canadian-born super making her way through a New York airport terminal in pieces from the designer’s “Riviera” collection.  ~ WWD

Since dropping his ready-to-wear, pre-fall and secondary lines, Jean Paul Gaultier has shifted his attention to producing costume jewelry, starting with the launch of a new crystal he developed in collaboration with Swarovski. “What’s incredible is that it’s reversible, one color on one side, another color on the other side, and there are fractures. It’s very Cubist and Art Deco-ish in a way,” said Gaultier of the double-faced stone, which premiered in his haute couture collection on Wednesday. ~ WWD

Look of the Week: Poppy Delevingne Has a Spring Fling in Emilio Pucci

Spring has far from sprung, but thanks to today’s Look of the Week winner, Poppy Delevingne, we can at the very least imagine that it has.  The fashion week fixture spent the better part of this past week attending some of the biggest events at Paris couture week, most notably among them the Emilio Pucci Eyewear Global Launch Party where she rocked this resort-ready look!

Reminiscent of the bohemian-inspired gown worn to her second wedding ceremony, the blonde beauty stepped out in a white floral-embroidered pant suit from the designer’s spring/summer ’15 collection.  The model kept the look relaxed with a white crochet tank and strappy heels, while her glossy tresses and natural skin was a refreshing break from the slew of dark, smokey eyes making their way down the red carpet as of late.  While the look may not be suited for those still slushing around in the after-math of storm Juno, we couldn’t think of a better look to have in our arsenal come spring.

The Victoria’s Secret Angels Play Modern Pin-Ups for 10 Magazine

For several months now, we’ve noticed a mysterious trend growing among the Victoria’s Secret models’ Instagrams.  Prior to the annual Fashion Show in London, a handful of the show’s models had posted some rather racy images of what appeared to be a photo shoot for 10 Magazine.  Aside from the occasional #ComingSoon, few details were given, and we were left to speculate on our own.  Now nearly three months later, it looks like the Angels are finally ready to let us in on their secret project and trust us when we say, it was worth the wait!

In what turned out to be a cover shoot of epic proportions, Editor-in-Chief and owner of 10 Magazine Sophia Neophitou recruited photographer Nick Knight to create 12 glossy covers featuring a dozen of the Victoria’s Secret’s biggest models: Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Devon Windsor, Ming Xi, Behati Prinsloo, Lais Ribeiro, Cindy Bruna, Sui He, Joan Smalls and Barbara Fialho.  Described as a calendar, the new issue sees each model gracing her own limited-edition cover posed as a modern day pin-up in the brand’s lacy underpinnings.

Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner Go Selfie Crazy at Sam Smith Concert

It looks like LOVE magazine covers aren’t the only thing that Cara Delevingne  and Kendall Jenner have in common.

Upon returning to the States following a successful run on the Paris runways this week, Kendall joined her model BFF for a girls’ night out at the Sam Smith concert in Inglewood, California on Thursday night.  Joined by Kendall’s sisters Khloe and Kim Kardashian, the model duo held court in the venue’s VIP section, where the famous crew reportedly sang their hearts out— that is, when they weren’t snapping selfies.

“KKKKrew! We love you @samsmithworld,” wrote Cara alongside a photo of her posing with her honorary Kardashian family members.

Modelinia AM Reads: VS PINK Model Taylor Hill Talks Date Night Bras and Celebrity Crushes

The internet was buzzing yesterday over rumors that Kendall and Kylie Jenner were reportedly “in talks” to create a collection for Topshop.  As it turns out, the fashion darlings are headed to the high street label, just not in the way we imagined.  A representative for the company confirmed that it is “in talks to be the exclusive stockist” of the Kendall & Kylie collection, currently carried by PacSun, rather than having enlisted the sisters to create a collection specifically for Topshop. ~ Vogue UK

The Models’ Favorite Accessory Is All You Need to Survive Winter in Style

Whether or not snowstorm Juno hit your hometown, you can bet the bone-chilling temperatures of winter are far from over. By this time, we’re sure you’ve already invested in your winter coat for the season (and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for, it’s freezing out there!), but what you might not have considered stocking up on is every models’ favorite cold weather accessory: the beanie.  We were recently reminded of the hat’s effortlessly cool appeal after spotting Joan Smalls in an athletic-inspired backward knit beanie outside the Chanel haute couture show in Paris earlier this week.  And then there’s always Cara Delevingne —the certified queen of beanies— whose love for the topper inspired her to create her own best-selling style for DKNY, which has been spotted on everyone from Kendall Jenner to Miley Cyrus.  In anticipation of the frigid temperatures and brutal snow storms to come, we’ve rounded up eight of our favorite beanies for you to shop just in time for the weekend.  Wear them with jeans, your favorite LBD, just whatever you do, don’t leave home without it!
