Everyone’s Taking the Ice Bucket Challenge – Even the Models!

It’s the video series that’s gone viral on social media and this weekend, the models took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to the next level with their chilly self-soaking videos.

Taking to their popular Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Karolina Kurkova were among the first catwalkers to brave the bone-chilling social-media stunt in the name of charity in the past week, with each posting videos of themselves pouring buckets of ice-cold water over their heads and then passing on the challenge to their friends and family, or in some cases, each other.

“Morning guys, can’t wait to do this,” exclaimed Suki in her 15-second Instagram video before dousing herself in water and then challenging her pal Cara to do the same. Of course, Cara wasted no time in sharing her own hilarious (although probably NSFW) ice bucket video with her 6 million plus Instagram followers.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge also joined in on the charitable fun, as did fellow Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models Gigi Hadid and Sara Sampaio.  With so many beautiful women now filling up their buckets and accepting their cold, cold fate, we expect it won’t be long before fashion designers, stylists and even magazine editors (gasp) get in on the viral campaign.  Until then, we’ve rounded up the best of the models’ ice bucket challenges thus far in hopes of inspiring a video of your own.  Catch all of the soaked and screaming supers and their videos after the jump!

Kate Moss Channels Madonna in Racy Getup for the Singer’s Cannes Birthday Bash

After living it up in Ibiza earlier this month for her pal Riccardo Tisci’s 40th birthday party, Kate Moss packed her Louis Vuitton bags and headed to Cannes, this time to celebrate another one of the world’s biggest style icons: Madonna.

On Saturday, the 40-year-old supermodel joined the legendary singer in celebrating her 56th birthday at the grand 1900s French mansion, Villa Saint Georges, with a lavish 1920s-themed bash complete with elaborate costumes, live music and a healthy dose of glitter.

While friends like DSquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten and Riccardo Tisci uploaded a few snaps from the evening, we have the birthday girl and photographer Mert Alas to thank for the influx of racy Moss pics that have been sprouting up on our feeds every since.   In one of the most jaw-dropping photos to come out of the A-list festivities, both the Queen of Pop and the Queen of the Runway can be seen cozying up together in their slinky flapper outfits alongside a very fitting “Bow down Bitches!” caption.

After wearing little more than a green bikini and fishnets to Tisci’s birthday several week earlier, Kate once again let her risque side show, stepping out in a very Madonna-esque chain-lined leotard and cap, while the Material Girl opted for a Daisy Buchanan-style silver beaded dress and matching headpiece.  Clearly, age is no barrier on Kate’s good time.

Lara Stone Plays a Cult Leader in The Black Keys’ New Model-Filled Music Video

A model in a music video is nothing new, but a model posing as a leader of a model cult? Now that warrants our attention.

In the music video for The Black Keys’ bluesy, psychedelic song, “Weight of Love,” we’re left mesmerized by supermodel Lara Stone who leads a tribe of young models (including Lily McMenamy, Louise Parker and Camille Rowe) through their daily religious practices.  Directed by Rolling Stone heir Theo Wenner, the video features an angelic Stone and her disciples praying, exercising outside of the abandoned lighthouse that they inhabit, and  occasionally basking topless in the sun.  We’ll admit, watching Lara and her sistren doing calisthenics in their matching white flowy dresses is a bit creep for sure, but hauntingly beautiful nonetheless.

Watch the women in all of their eerie commune glory in the video below!

Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a Bronze Goddess in Emilio Pucci

Blame it on the increasing humidity or the recent lull in the fashion calendar, but it’s been a while since a red carpet look has stopped us dead in our tracks.  That all changed however when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stepped out onto the red carpet at Monday night’s The Expendables 3 premiere.

Stealing the spotlight from her leading man, Rosie looked every bit the glamazon stepping out in an Emilio Pucci black and white printed slip dress with black lace inserts from the VIP collection, which was a rather visually intriguing option laced with a hint of boudoir.  In keeping with the sexy ‘I woke up like this’ theme, the supermodel-turned-actress kept her accessories to a minimal, opting for a silver drop-chain necklace and matching earrings.

Never one to disappoint on the beauty front, Rosie channeled her inner ’60s screens siren for the occasion, complimenting her ensemble with a range of bronze and copper shades and styling her hair in loose, tousled beach waves.

Does it get any sexier than this? We think not.


Cara Delevingne Slathers Herself in a Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Onesie

Last week Cara Delevingne turned more than a few heads when she was spotted carrying a pizza box as a clutch bag during a night out in London.  But as it turns out, rocking a pizza box wasn’t enough for this adamant pie-enthusiast, who took the ‘wearing pizza, rather than eating it’ thing one step further on Thursday.

Proving her allegiance to the food, Cara slathered herself in a pepperoni pizza onesie for her return flight from her recent Ibiza birthday bash.  Oddly enough, the cheesy all-in-one is identical to one Katy Perry donned in Philadelphia earlier this month.  Unlike the pop signer though, Cara opted to keep her suit zipped all the way up while hitting the town with friends later that night.
