Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls Record Two Hilarious Dubsmash Videos

If you’ve ever been to a photo shoot, you know there’s typically a lot of down time on set — especially when you’re a model.  Between hair and makeup, wardrobe fittings, and the time it takes the crew to set up the different shots, it can sometimes feel like you end up doing more sitting around than actual modeling.  Naturally, the models have all sought out different ways to help them pass the time including, reading, listening to music, or in the case of Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls, Dubsmashing.

The two supermodels, who once served as the hosts of MTV’s “House of Style” reboot, reunited on Instagram last night to share a sneak peek at how they were keeping entertained while on set of an undisclosed photo shoot.  Using Dubsmash — the app that allows users to lip sync anything from a Miley Cyrus anthem to a your favorite viral memes — the two supers recorded two hilarious videos of themselves, one of which sees them performing Beyonce’s famous “Single Ladies” dance, along with a bonus Spice Girls number:

Rumor Alert: Is Suki Waterhouse Dating James Marsden?

It was a couple of weeks ago that Suki Waterhouse and her ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper were spotted cozying up to one another at Coachella, sparking rumors of a possible reconciliation.  But since then, Cooper has been spotted out and about with Russian supermodel Irina Shayk— and now it seems that Suki may have moved on to another Hollywood actor, as well.

According to People, the 23-year-old Brit was spotted getting dinner with X-Men: Days of Future Past star James Marsden in Los Angeles on Saturday night.  The two were reportedly joined by a small group of friends at romantic West Hollywood French eatery The Little Door, where they dined for more than three hours.  Afterwards, Suki and the 41-year-old actor were seen leaving together in the same vehicle.

Of course, if anything is going on between Suki and James, it’s probably still very much in the early stages, as the model has only been single for about two months.  Still, we’re not counting anything out yet.  After all, if there’s one thing we know to be true about models, it’s that they don’t stay single for long.

Karlie Kloss Goes Old-School for the Launch of Her Latest Frame Denim Collaboration

Typically, the phrase “model collaboration” refers to a capsule collection lasting no more than a season or two.  But two years after launching her line of extra-long jeans with Frame Denim, Karlie Kloss is showing no signs of slowing down — in fact, some would say she’s just getting started.

On Friday night, the supermodel-mogul joined the brand in celebrating the launch of her new pre-fall 15 collection, which first launched in 2013 after Karlie mentioned to founders Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson that she couldn’t find the right pair of jeans with a longer-than-standard inseam for her tall frame. Called ‘Forever Karlie,’ the capsule debuted with a longer skinny jean and the flare, which fit perfectly with Frame’s late ’70s, New York-inspired aesthetic. This season, Karlie is adding two silhouette staples to the classics, including a boyfriend jean and short, “Le Petit Ami,” which aim to create a more relaxed look and roomier fit.

Adriana Lima, Chrissy Teigen, Irina Shayk and More at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which took place Saturday night in DC, always makes for an interesting red carpet.  The event, which is often affectionately referred to as “Nerd Prom,” is a strange mix of politicians, media power players and celebrities, ranging from the A list (Hello, Bradley Cooper) on down to the D list.  But what we love most about the event isn’t President Obama’s hilarious zingers or the sight of the First Lady rubbing elbows with the cast of Homeland, but rather the wide range of models that it brings to the table.

This year, the White House played host to Victoria’s Secret models and Sports Illustrated stunners alike, marking one of its most fashion-filled dinners to date.  Among those on hand was Brazilian bombshell Adriana Lima, who arrived to the event modeling a vampy Bibhu Mohapatra gown and a bold red lip.  Meanwhile, SI Swimsuit models Chrissy Teigen, Hannah Davis and Chanel Iman opted for jewel-toned gowns in shades of sapphire, emerald, and Topez respectively, while Anne V showed off her growing baby bump in a printed Altuzarra number.

After the dinner, the models braved the rain and headed to the Vanity Fair/ Bloomberg party held at the French Embassy.  There, in the tented area, Bradley Cooper reportedly kept Irina Shayk company as she smoked an e-cigarette, while familiar faces like Katie Couric, Karlie Kloss, Cecily Strong, Norman Reedus, John Legend and Naomi Campbell — who delighted guests in a structured, red, sleeveless number — moved in and out of the adjoining rooms.

We’re not entirely sure where the “nerd” aspect of this dinner comes into play, but seeing as how we’ve never been invited to participate ourselves, we’ll just take the media’s word for it.
