Modelinia AM Reads: You Won’t Believe How Affordable Gigi Hadid’s Coachella Looks Are

The invitations have been sent and by the looks of it, this year’s Met Gala is going to one star-studded affair.  A list of over 100 VIPs, from designers to celebrities, is printed on the event’s official invitation, adding to the event’s draw and enticing New Yorkers with deep pockets to buy tickets to the Costume Institute fundraiser. Among the most stylish names on the list: Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld. ~ Fashionista

On Monday, Beyonce posted a photo of herself at Coachella, wearing some kind of feathered-scarf concoction on her head and a shiny gold Apple Watch on her wrist. Meanwhile, another pic shows her using her iPhone, so apparently the smartwatch hasn’t taken the place of that just yet. ~ Yahoo

How did Rihanna celebrate 4/20? Probably not int he way you expected.  The “American Oxygen” singer walked the down the aisle as a bridesmaid in her assistant Jennifer Morales’ beach wedding in Hawaii.  But don’t let her angelic lilac lace embroidered gown fool you — she still got up to her Bad Gal ways at the end of the day. ~ Harper’s Bazaar 

We don’t even know where to begin with this one, so here it goes: In his latest interview, 80-year-old designer Giorgio Armani shared his views on gay men “dressing” like gay men saying, “A homosexual man is a man 100%. He does not need to dress homosexual. When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme – to say, ‘Ah, you know I’m homosexual,’ – that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man.” Sure. ~ The Sunday Times 

If you’ve been caught up in the Lilly Pulitzer for Target craze this past 24-hours you may have missed the news of another budget-friendly designer collaboration. Kohl’s announced on Monday that Thakoon will take over its seventh DesigNation installment, the brand’s limited edition capsule collection. The misses’ apparel collection and accessories will be inspired by the designer’s trip to London and will be available exclusively at Kohl’s beginning this fall. ~ WWD

Fact: Gigi Hadid ruled Coachella this year.   By forgoing those more festival-centric trends and adding a desert-friendly touch to her signature high-fashion look, the model-of-the-moment had some of our favorite looks (that’s right, multiple) of the music fest. Best of all, nearly every one of Gigi’s festival-ready pieces came in at under $100, which proves that you don’t need a supermodel-sized bank account to score style points on the festival grounds.  Shop the looks here! ~ Modelinia

Look of the Week: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Show-Stopping Burberry Look

Fashion was at an all-time high in LA last night as everyone from the entire Beckham family to the cast of Mad Men to model besties Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse flocked to the Griffith Observatory to celebrate the opening of Burberry’s Rodeo Drive store.  Yet, even with all of that star power on hand, we feel confident in saying that no one even came close to matching the sartorial perfection that was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s front row look.

As always, the model/actress looked nothing short of jaw-dropping as she made her way through Burberry’s custom iron-wrought gates.  Where others went for minimal, monotone looks, the British beauty opted to turn heads in a multi-colored floral-print mini dress from the brand’s fall 2015 collection.  Though we’d argue that her best accessories that evening were her sun-kissed legs, sexy bedhead waves and her hunky Hollywood boyfriend Jason Statham, we’ll admit that her Ippolita and Anita Ko baubles and strappy Burberry sandals were also pretty spot-on.  Hey, if you’ve got it flaunt it right?
