10 Model-Approved Drugstore Beauty Buys

We all love a good splurge on beauty products. But, for as excited as we get over a luxury mascara, there are just as many (if not more) occasions when we find ourselves swooning over the products lining the shelves at our local drugstore. No longer just the cheap steals of our youth, today’s under-$20 finds are equally as irresistible as their high-end peers, and every bit as effective — just ask the models!  Though accustomed to professional beauty tools, the models know that you don’t have to break the bank in order to look your best.  To prove it, we asked 10 models including Adriana Lima, Jessica Stam and Lara Stone, to share their favorite drugstore beauty finds, both here and abroad.  Shop their top-rated steals and deals in the slideshow below — your wallet will thank you.

Coco Rocha is Pregnant With Her First Child!

Today, we’re sending a special congratulations to Coco Rocha, who announced this morning that she and her husband James Conran are expecting their first child!

The model and her artist husband chose to announce the pregancy in a very modern way – via Instagram, in a video short that shows a camera circulating Rocha’s leotard-clad figure with a nursery-rhyme jingle playing in the background.  “We are absolutely thrilled and elated to announce that after four years of marriage we are expanding our family and expecting our first child spring of 2015!” wrote the mommy-to-be.

Coco and James officially tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in France in June 2010, for which she wore a custom creation by her close friend Zac Posen.  Most recently, the happy couple was spotted taking part in fashion week, where the expecting supermodel took to the runway for Posen and Jean Paul Gauliter.  Coco will also release her first book, “Study of Prose,” — an in-depth look at her uncanny ability to “strike distinctive, camera-ready poses” as captured by photographer Steven Sebring— on October 28 (head here to pre-order your copy now).

Congratulations to Coco and James!  We can’t wait to see the new addition to your family!

Look of the Week: Liu Wen Steals the Show at Louis Vuitton

As one of the world’s most successful models, we’re used to seeing Liu Wen strut her stuff on the catwalk, but at Wednesday’s Louis Vuitton spring/summer ’15 show, it was surprisingly the front row where the Chinese supermodel impressed the most. Demonstrating her prowess for putting together chic ensembles that lend a touch of modern femininity, Liu rose above the crowd in a utilitarian look from the house’s fall ’14 collection— Look 21 to be exact— consisting of a tan zip-up coat dress cinched at the waist with a thick leather belt.  To top it off, Liu added a pair of black patent leather peep-toe sandals, a pair of long, decorative earrings and one of the brand’s oversized quilted leather envelope clutches.  Simple though it may be, Liu’s front row look was both fresh and sultry (check out those pins!) and the ideal look for a supermodel on-the-go this fall.  We say, “Well done, Liu!”

“Gone Girl” Star Emily Ratajkowski Is “Here To Stay” on the Cover of Cosmo’s November Issue


She may have first caught the world’s attention with her topless appearance in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, but this month Emily Ratajkowski is stepping out of the YouTube spotlight and proving that she has more to offer than her flawless figure alone.

The brunette bombshell, who joins Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Gone Girl, which hits theaters today, has snagged the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s November issue, in which she gives hints of ’70s-inspired glamour in a pair of classic high-waisted jeans and a seductively unbuttoned white blouse (this is Cosmo after all).  Of course, every other inch of Emily looks equally amazing, from her glossy dark tresses to her killer ‘smize.’  Needless to say, Emily is totally rocking this look, and we think the glossy’s headline is spot-on – this stunner is most definitely “here to stay!”

But while the accompanying editorial may be more covered-up than we’re used to seeing from the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, the Ford Models Blog (her mother agency) assures us the issue remains “her most revealing story yet.” In her candid interview, Emily opens up about her sexuality, family and why she feels “lucky to wear what I want, sleep with who I want, and dance how I want,” while still being a feminist.

More power to you, Emily! See more photos from Emily’s stunning photo shoot here and pick up your copy of Cosmopolitan‘s November issue at newsstands on October 7!
