Cara Delevingne Puckers Up to Herself in New YSL Beauty Ad!

 

Cara Delevingne may have found fame as a bold-browed beauty, but it’s her luscious lips that are getting the attention as of late!

Just days after debuting a steamy new YSL Beauty campaign featuring her in near lip lock with Ondria Hardin, the British catwalker is putting her pout to good use once again, only this time she’s puckering up to someone else entirely— herself!

The model took to Instagram earlier today to debut the first look at her latest YSL Beauty campaign video entitled “From Lips to Love,” starring two versions of herself: one sporting a bubbly pink lip and the other a vampy red hue paired with a sleek chignon.  As their eyes meet, the two Caras slowly move closer towards one another as the Le Smoking version of Cara remarks, “Anything could happen from your lips…and more.  I love you passionately, painfully— all of you.” What happens next will make you forget all about her previous makeouts.

Watch the first segment of Cara’s alluring new YSL campaign video above, and see below for the remaining clips!

Pro Tips: How to Impress a Model Scout According to Trump Model Manager Gabriel Ruas Santo-Rocha

For every one supermodel in the world, there’s dozens of others trying to make it in the industry. And while you may assume there is some magic formula to finding these genetically-blessed individuals, it’s really anyone’s guess as to who lands the major campaigns, and who’s left day-dreaming.  Supermodels are a rare breed who are scouted, picked out from the crowd by skilled tastemakers otherwise known as model scouts, and praised for their one-of-a-kind beauty.  So work on your ‘smize’ and runway walk all you want, but those talents alone do not a career make.

Luckily for all of you aspiring models, fate is not the only factor that plays a part in being discovered.  We recently spoke to Gabriel Ruas Santos-Rocha, Model Manager at Trump Model Management in New York, who dished on the exact traits his agency looks for when prowling the streets for fashion’s next big thing (hint: it’s not all about “the standard beauty girls”). Wondering if modeling is the right move for you?  See our interview with the pro below for the inside scoop on what it really takes to make it in the fashion industry according to a model manager!

Super Shoppers: Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell Shop ‘Till They Drop in Brazil

 

Oh, how we wish we were in Brazil this week.  Specifically, in the city of Sao Paulo.  More specifically, hanging out with besties Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell!

After turning heads on the red carpet at the annual amfAR Inspiration Gala over the weekend, Queen K and Queen N (as Riccardo Tisci so appropriately deemed them), took their beautiful friendship to the Sao Paulo streets where they met up to explore Brazil’s fashion capitol.  With Kate’s daughter Lila Grace, designer Riccardo Tisci and R&B singer Mary J Blige (who performed at the amfAR Gala) in tow, the legendary pair were said to have enjoyed some quality ‘shop-till-you-drop’ time followed by an authentic Brazilian lunch and even more shoe shopping.

Are Toni and Leo Gearing Up for Coachella?

A bevy of top models are expected to descend upon the California desert this weekend for the Coachella music festival, and judging by these latest photos, we think Toni Garrn might be one of them!

The blonde beauty was spotted stocking up on new music with her boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio at the second-hand record store, Record Surplus, in LA on Monday.  While there was no telling what tunes the couple picked up on their low-key day out, the two certainly looked as if they were getting in the festival spirit with Toni sporting a brightly colored tank, a white mini skirt and neon colored tennis shoes, and Leo a simple white tee and cargo shorts.

As you might recall, Toni was spotted sipping coconut water with fellow supermodel and close pal Karlie Kloss at last year’s star-studded festival, which also saw appearances by such other famous catwalkers as Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda KerrAgyness Deyn, Poppy Delevingne, and Chanel Iman among countless others.  With three days of A-list parties jam-packed into this year’s schedule— including the annual Neon Carnival, presented by NYLON & Olay Fresh Effects with GUESS, the H&M Loves Music bash on Saturday, and the Adidas Originals’ The Do Over at the Ace on Sunday— we wouldn’t be surprised to see these festival veterans in all of their fringe-tastic glory soaking up the Cali sun this weekend.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to shop this look immediately (and at a more affordable price), which is why we’ve rounded up Rosie’s exact pieces, along with a few of our other favorites, to help you score this model’s winning off-duty look.

Every Single Piece From Kate Moss’ Comeback Topshop Collection

After a four-year hiatus, Kate Moss’s hotly anticipated Topshop collection will finally hit stores later this month, and we’ve finally gotten our hands on the full lookbook!

The comeback collection comprises four distinct themes, including balearic dressing— an homage to one of her favorite vacation destinations, the Balearic Islands— pajama dressing, cocktail hour and tailoring noir— all of which exude the supermodel’s signature brand of effortless cool.  With intricate cocktail dresses, embroidered kaftans, sharp blazers and a fringed leather jacket similar to one she wore to the Rolling Stones show (aptly dubbed the “gig jacket”), it’s not hard to see Kate’s fashionable touch in each of the pieces— most of which were inspired by items hanging in the model’s own closet.

“I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop,” Kate told British Vogue. “I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name. Now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion as it feels like I’m back home working with Topshop.”

Prices in the Kate Moss line range from about $70 to $1,200, and will be available in-store and online at Topshop, Nordstrom, ShopBAZAAR.com and Net-a-Porter.
