Joined by fellow model Martha Hunt, fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson and stylist Ashley Avignone, the rumored Vogue cover girls fled the city for the Hamptons this weekend where they enjoyed some quality girly-time complete with a crackling fire, plenty of wine, and lots (and lots) of cooking.

Modelinia AM Reads: Get the First Look at THAT Top Secret Victoria’s Secret Swimwear Show

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen took to Twitter to live tweet her support of her husband Tom Brady during the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night. Just how excited was she, you ask?  Let’s just say, the exclamation points— and adorable family snaps— were flying! ~ The Washington Post 

Sad news for Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo.  The stylish couple have reportedly called it quits after fives years of dating.  The Russian supermodel’s rep confirmed the breakup via a statement to US Weekly, while also addressing those negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family, claiming they are “completely false.” ~ Us Weekly 

Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein ads and the Photoshop allegations related to them were just asking to be parodied, and this weekend, “Saturday Night Live” delivered.  Actress Kate McKinnon brought back her Bieber impersonation and channeled the 20-year-old singer for the sketch, which hilariously spoofs the much talked about black-and-white underwear campaign with the help of Cecily Strong.  ~ New York Daily News

After finding herself at the center of attention when she made her awards season debut at last week’s Golden Globe Awards, it appears that Amal Clooney is prepared to steal the limelight once again with the help of Vogue‘s Anna Wintour.  According to a new report, the Editor-in-Chief is looking to secure an interview and cover shoot with the human right lawyer for an upcoming edition.  ~ Grazia UK 

Fendi has tapped five influencers including Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Feinstein, Jourdan Dunn and Leandra Medine to personalize their own 3Baguette handbags, proceeds of which will go towards a charity of their choosing.

It’s Here: Heidi Klum Debuts Her Sexy New Lingerie Line!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and Heidi Klum is out to get you “in the mood.”

Following in the footsteps of Elle Macpherson, the supermodel and entrepreneur has just unveiled her debut collection for her new line of lingerie created with intimates apparel company Bendon.  As previously reported, the 41-year-old model was announced back in October as the lingerie giant’s newest supermodel designer after news broke that Elle had parted ways with the brand after a highly-successful 25 year partnership.

Unsurprisingly, Heidi, a former Victoria’s Secret Angel, fronts the new Rankin-shot campaign, showing off designs from both her Heidi Klum Intimates range as well as Heidi by Heidi Klum, the more accessible everyday brand.  The spring 2015 collection was said to be inspired by a romantic journey through France, from the Moulin Rouge in Paris and finishing at St. Tropez in the French Riviera.

Look of the Week: Chrissy Teigen Earns Best-Dressed at the 2015 Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are hailed as one of Hollywood’s most glamorous nights, so it comes as no surprise that the celebrities bring out their fashion A-game on the red carpet.  Still, there can only be one who walks away with the best-dressed crown and this year, the award goes to…Chrissy Teigen!

Attending with her hubby John Legend, the winner of that night’s award for Best Original Song, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl looked every bit the model wife in an embellished pink Zuhair Murad gown with luxe sheer panels.  The dress perfectly hugged every curve of the model’s toned figure, and looked even more radiant with the addition of her silver Tyler Alexandra clutch, Casadei shoes, and sparkling Harry Kotlar accessories.  Of course,  if you ask us, the real star here was her Victoria’s Secret-worthy tousled pony which, when paired with her sun-kissed makeup, provided the perfect balance to the refined elegance of the dress.  The look may not have been as epic as her now famous cry face— by social media standards anyways— but it sure impressed us!

Kendall Jenner Turns Wall Street Journal Columnist

She’s a social media powerhouse, a global brand ambassador for Estee Lauder, a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld and now, it appears Kendall Jenner can add Wall Street Journal columnist to her ever-growing resume (well, sort of).

The model-of-the-moment was chosen as one of six personalities who was asked to contribute her thoughts to the February issue of WSJ. Magazine.  In a reoccurring feature entitled, “The Columnists,” Kendall and this month’s contributors— who also include Tim Howard, Goldie Hawn, Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Dr. Frederic Brandt, and Maira Kalman — were asked to wax poetic on this month’s topic of youth— a subject the 19-year-old model clearly knows all about.  Here’s what Kendall had to say:

“I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago. Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic. But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20 — it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes — react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously. I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think — what am I going to be like when I’m 65?”

Perhaps youth isn’t wasted on the young after all.  Or at the least, this burgeoning model.

Happy Birthday Kate Moss! Celebrate with Her Greatest Style Moments

She’s one of the most iconic supermodels of all time, the ultimate queen of cool, and everyone’s favorite party girl!  Of course, we’re talking about Kate Moss, who turns a fabulous 41-years-old today!

In a little over 25-years, Kate has gone from Croydon-born girl-next-door, to secure her status as the most enduring model of our time.  Over the course of two decades, she’s graced more than 300 magazine covers, has walked the runway for every major designer known to man, and has inspired countless fans with her enviable style and endless appeal.  And, in an industry not renowned for longevity, that fact that Kate’s star is still shining brightly at the age of 41, is something worth celebrating.

So, to honor the supermodel’s birthday, what better way to mark the occasion than by taking a look back at her most stylish moments to date!  From her early ’90s grunge days, to the minimalist pieces she wore throughout the Johnny Depp years, and her sometimes more extravagant red carpet looks, Kate’s insouciant cool has launched thousands of trends, making her this generation’s ultimate style icon.  Today, we celebrate the ‘Great Kate’ with the looks she made famous.  Scroll through the slideshow below as we pay tribute to one of fashion’s absolute finest!
