Exclusive: Chloe Norgaard Reveals Her Memorial Day Weekend Playlist

Photo by Alex Ferzan

Chloe Norgaard is the physical embodiment of all things summer.  Not only does the model look at all times as if she’s just returned from the world’s most stylish music festival, but her rainbow-hued hair, which can run the spectrum from bubblegum pink to electric blue, suggests the same type of carefree bliss we feel soaking up the sun on a laid-back summer day.  That being said, we could think of no better person to inspire our summer playlist than the model/DJ herself!  We recently caught up with Chloe, who unsurprisingly spent her Memorial Day Weekend jamming out at the Lightning in a Bottle Music and Arts Festival, and returned to share some of her favorite tracks.  But listeners, be warned: as fabulous as her song selection is, Chloe still highly suggests you see these artists live.  ”The magic is created when they tell a story with a  sequence of songs rather than just single tracks,” says Chloe.  ”They build up these amazing moods/vibes/grooves/jams and it’s lovely!”  If that doesn’t make you want to ditch all of your electronic devices and chill poolside with some techno tunes all weekend long, we don’t know what will.

Gigi Hadid Cozies Up to Miguel in the Singer’s New Music Video

Miguel may claim that he doesn’t want a model in the opening of his new single “Simple Things,” but when it came down to casting a co-star in the music video, that’s exactly what he got!

Gigi Hadid, the daughter of reality star Yolanda Foster and modeling’s latest “it-girl,” joined the crooner in celebrating the release of his new video for the hit single, earning the starring role as what else, the singer’s model love interest.  Dressed in a black leather fringe jacket and a matching white lace crop top and mini skirt,  the model takes to strutting her stuff on the streets of Hollywood before cuddling arm in arm with Miguel on the beach.

Excited by the release of her latest gig, the model didn’t waste any time in sharing the video with her growing fan base, taking to both Twitter and Instagram to share the news.  ”I just want the #SimpleThings,” tweeted Gigi.  ”So excited to be a part of my friend @MiguelUnlimited’s new music video! CHECK IT OUT!”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Gigi has stolen the show in a hit music video.  Just last month the blonde beauty made her debut in her then boyfriend Cody Simpson’s “Surfboard” video, playing the Aussie’s ultimate dream girl.

Catch Gigi in her latest must-see music video below and head here for a look at ten of our other all-time favorite model music videos!

The Return of the Model Magazine Cover?

While most fashion magazines rely on box office superstars and Grammy winners to sell its monthly issues, it appears that a number of the industry’s leading publications are taking an entirely different approach this season.

Following news of Chrissy Teigen‘s cover hat trick for Cosmopolitan‘s June issue earlier this month comes the release of now three other supermodel-fronted American magazine covers— namely, Alessandra Ambrosio for Self, Miranda Kerr for Lucky, and Amber Valletta for Allure— marking what we hope is the start of a major model overhaul at the newsstands this summer!

For her part, Alessandra graces Self‘s ‘Summer of Fun’ issue, posing in a bohemian-style white knit beach cover-up and minimal makeup.  And yet, despite how incredibly fit she looks posing in her workout gear in the accompanying cover story, the Victoria’s Secret model admits that she too shares the average woman’s common body concerns.

“If I look in the mirror and see cellulite—and I have some, every woman does!—I run the Santa Monica Stairs,” says Alessandra. “I’ll go up and down the [170] steps four to six times, usually once a week.”

As for flaunting your er, assets, Alessandra is all about it. “In Brazil, it’s all about the butt,” explains the Brazilian beauty. “For mine, I put 5-pound ankle weights on each leg, get on all fours and kick each heel up toward the ceiling. I do three sets of 20. Then I also do three sets of 20 fire hydrants, where you lift each bent leg up and out to the side.”
