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!

Modelinia AM Reads: Kate Moss Goes Unretouched for Vogue Italia, Looks Flawless

We all watched the Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday night to see who walked the red carpet and who took home the awards, but so many other hilarious things happened along the way. There were adorable couple moments, plenty of dancing and there was even an attempt at topping that Oscars selfie. Wondering what else you missed? Catch up on all of the must-see moments here! ~ PopSugar

Monograms: not just for his and her towels anymore!  At least, that’s the takeaway from Burberry’s latest earnings report.  According to a new survey, Christopher Bailey’s blanket ponchos from the fall 2014 collection were a smash hit, with 70 percent of shoppers who bought them opting to include the monogram. Of course, it probably didn’t hurt that Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have all been seen cozying up in them. ~ The Cut

Good news for fans of Diane von Furstenberg’s House of DVF.  The iconic designer will film a second season of her hit reality show, which focused on her search for a Global Ambassador to represent her brand.  For its second season, the show fill follow season one winner Brittany Hampton who will be tasked with finding a new group of contestants, al while being challenged by Diane and the rest of the DVF team. ~ E!

Sir Mick Jagger has donated a three-year scholarship program for students at London’s Central Saint Martins MA fashion course, in memory of his late partner L’Wren Scott.  The scholarship program will take place over three years, and will see one student a year offered their fees for the two-year course, as well as a contribution to their living expenses. ~ Grazia UK 

At 41 today, there’s no denying that Kate Moss is still every bit the supermodel.  That much at least was confirmed by her new feature in Vogue Italia, which features stripped down, unretouched photos of the British beauty shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh. In the photos, Kate appears stripped down in minimal hair and makeup, and looking surprisingly unself-conscious— even while lounging around topless.  And yet, even without the covering up of her few imperfections (however slight they may be), she still manages to blow us away. ~ Modelinia

Watch New York Fashion Week’s Top Models Transform Right Before Your Eyes – in Gif Form!

@magdalena_jasek

Former model Elle Muliarchyk first began her foray into art and photography in between fashion shoots and runway shows.  Before selfies were part of the pop culture lexicon,  she would sneak into the dressing rooms of high-end fashion boutiques and take photos of herself decked out in the world’s finest garments.  She even went so far as to build elaborate sets with backdrops and props— all in less than 10 minutes.  Try doing that Kim K!

Since then, Muliarchyk has left the runway to embark on a career in art and photography, with her work being published in such top-notch publications as LOVE, Interview and The New York Times T Magazine.  Now, for her latest project, Muliarchyk is pushing the boundaries of fashion once again, this time teaming up with with art director Vita RaykhmanYahoo Style, and a few different hair and makeup crews to create quick-change transformations with some of the coolest models around (all represented by The Society Management). Did we mention she’s captured them all in gif-form?

Shop the Look: Alessandra Ambrosio Inspires This Weekend’s Off-Duty Uniform

She’s spent the better part of the last few weeks frolicking on the beaches of Puerto Rico in in an endless stream of teeny bikinis. But on Thursday, Alessandra Ambrosio presented a very different fashion sensibility when she stepped out in her native Brentwood, California. Spotted having lunch with friends at the local Country Mart, Alessandra displayed her fondness of the West Coast’s inherent indie-rock style, stepping out in a pair of vintage Re/Dun boyfriend jeans paired with a classic benton sweater and Theodora and Callum’s Fight the Ladykiller Wearable Art Scarf.  To top it off, the Victoria’s Secret Angel kept things simple adding a pair of black leather Isabel Marant boots, a Fendi Peek-a-Boo bag, oversized shades and of course, a healthy green juice.  The outfit is crisp, polished and best of all, incredibly easy to copy.

Cara Delevingne is the Gender-Bending Star of DKNY’s Spring 2015 Campaigns

Last week, DKNY released its first Intimates campaign featuring a scantily-clad Cara Delevingne rolling around in bed and using an old-school payphone.  Little did we know though, that the New York label had far more Cara action in store for us this week with the release of its spring/summer 2015 campaigns.  Yes, you read that correctly— that’s campaigns, plural.

In a gender-bending twist on fashion, Cara returns to the New York-based label this season to front both its women’s and men’s campaigns featuring a diverse cast of co-stars.  For her women’s gig, Cara joins fellow cool girls Binx Walton, Xiao Wen and Sam Rollinson under the Manhattan Bridge and at the Coleman State Skatepark in matching tight, slicked down brads and sporty and striped separates.  Shot by photog Gregory Harris, the campaign is best described as a melting pot of “modern classics, sport elements, and playful geometric styles for the always moving, multicultural, multitasking New Yorker.” A vibe perfectly incapsulated by Cara and co., no?

Meanwhile, for her menswear debut, Cara pulls a 180, trading in her skirts for an androgynous pantsuit and platform sneakers. (how very Cara). The dapper Brit joins fellow male models Ben Nordberg, Jackson Hale and Sang Woo Kim, proving that at the end of the day, she’s really just one of the boys.

Watch the behind-the-scenes video of Cara and her DKNY crew below!
