You Won’t Believe How Affordable Gigi Hadid’s Coachella Looks Are

There’s a reason why Gigi Hadid has become a style icon as of late. No matter the occasion, the 19-year-old supermodel always appears flawlessly put-together and totally situation appropriate. Case and point: the opening weekend of Coachella, where she gave the fashion world something to talk about other than flower crowns and neon rave gear.  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 weekend. 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.  Here, we’ve broken down four of Gigi’s winning Coachella looks to help you up your festival style game ahead of this weekend’s encore Coachella performances.  Consider this your one-stop shop for all things festival fashion inspiration.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Has Only One Rule for Those Working in the Modeling Industry

We’re all familiar with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s famously svelte figure— she was once a Victoria’s Secret Angel after all— but who would’ve guessed that french fries and pigs in a blanket are are behind it?

The British supermodel turned cover model and guest editor for the May edition of Harper by Harper’s Bazaar, in which she gave readers a little insight into what her daily life is like. Titled “24 Hours With Rosie Huntington-Whiteley,” the model-turned-actress goes through her day hour by hour, giving intimate details about her life in Los Angeles and her daily beauty routine. Among the fun facts included is her apparent passion for junk food (yeah, we were as shocked to hear that too).

Gisele Bundchen Reveals the Real Reason She’s Retiring From the Runway

Last month, the fashion industry shed a collective tear when rumors spread that its biggest (and highest-paid) supermodel, Gisele Bündchen, would be retiring from the runway following one last appearance at the Colcci fashion show at São Paulo Fashion Week on Wednesday. Now, the Brazilian supermodel is speaking out for the first time about the state of her modeling career, and why after nearly 20 years in the industry she’s decided to take a step back.

Speaking to Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo (via Yahoo!) the 34-year-old supermodel admit that was ultimately her famous physique that made the decision for her.  ”Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop,” she said. “I respect my body, it’s a privilege to be able to stop.”

The former Victoria’s Secret model, who retired her Angel wings in 2007, won’t be calling it quits entirely though. As one of the world’s most sought-after faces, the super will allegedly still take part in campaigns and fashion spreads, which means we still have plenty of beautiful Bundchen moments to look forward to, despite her semi-retirement.

“I don’t see how to continue [modeling on the catwalk]… and stopping will leave room for other projects I have for myself,” she said, hinting that something even bigger could be in the works.

Still, we can’t help but feel a little nostalgic for the Brazilian super’s golden runway days. To help quell our fashion blues (and probably yours too), we’re taking at look back at Gisele’s biggest catwalk moments throughout her legendary career.  Mark the end of a beautiful era by scrolling through the slideshow below.

Are Suki Waterhouse and Bradley Cooper Rekindling Their Romance?

Coachella’s first weekend brought out a plethora of cute celebrity couples, but there was one that had our attention especially piqued.  No, not Madonna and Drake (although that certainly provided a few moments of excited chatter around the office this morning).  On the contrary, it was ex-lovebirds Suki Waterhouse and Bradley Cooper who surprisingly stole our gaze away from the onslaught of model street style taking place across the desert.  Despite confirming their split last month, the couple were spotted hanging out and chatting at an on-site food stand with American Sniper director Clint Eastwood over the weekend.  At one point, the couple appeared to share an intense moment, wrapping their arms around each other and smiling happily.

According to People, the pair went for dinner together in Venice, California, on Thursday and then traveled together to the festival on Friday with a group of friends.  ”Bradley and Suki hung out with friends at the AC/DC concert [on Friday],” a source told People.  ”They were very touchy, kept hugging and acting playful. They looked very happy together.”

The couple, who dated for two years, announced their split last month.  At the time, a source close to the couple told E! News that “they remain friends, but they both want different things right now. She loves Bradley and he loves her, but she’s so young and wants to concentrate on her acting career before becoming a mom.”

Could this be a sign that the two have since reconciled? We certainly hope so!

Check out the photos of Suki and Bradley at Coachella below and let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter!

Cara Delevingne and Lily Donaldson Spotted on the Set of Taylor Swift’s New Music Video

Taylor Swift’s songs may be inspired by a couple of famous heartbreakers, but for her latest music video it’s the pop singer’s famous female friends that are taking center stage.

Filming is reportedly underway for “Bad Blood” — Taylor’s ode to a frenemy that may or may not be Katy Perry— and several members of Taylor’s crew have been spotted on set, including models Cara Delevingne and Lily Donaldson.  The two British models were seen rocking white robes and matching smokey eye looks while hanging out on set Sunday morning ahead of the MTV Movie Awards.  While it is still unclear what role Cara and Lily will play in the video, the two models are said to be joining fellow T-Swift pals Hayley Williams and Zendaya Coleman in what is shaping up to be one of the most star-studded music videos of the year thus far. The only question that remains now is “when can we expect Karlie Kloss?”

Coachella 2015: The Models Best Festival Looks From Opening Weekend

If you were anywhere near Instagram over the weekend, you will know that all eyes (and ears) where on the Coachella Music Festival going on in Palm Springs, California.

As expected, the first weekend of Cali’s premiere music festival was nothing short of spectacular, with an impressive lineup of fashion parties— H&M, BaubleBar, Moschino and Coach all hosted poolside bashes outside the festival grounds— some 200+ musical performances, and a wide range of street style to swoon over by way of our favorite models.  Festival regulars  Alessandra Ambrosio and Chanel Iman were spotted out on the field in their finest fringe this season, while It girls Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin were all spotted rocking a variety of denim cut-offs, crop-tops and gypsy girl-inspired accessories (think body chains, head scarves and maxi skirts).  Thankfully, flower crowns and neon rave gear were nowhere to be found as the models opted for cool, desert-ready pieces in their place, thus doling out some of our favorite looks of the weekend.

Scrolls through the slideshow below for the full look at the best-dressed models at Coachella’s opening weekend, and be sure to let us know who had your favorite look on Facebook and Twitter.
