Happy Easter! Here Are Some of Your Favorite Models Wearing Bunny Ears

Easter Sunday, it’s a time for pastel hues, chocolate eggs and family gatherings, but let us not forget about our dear old friend the Easter Bunny!  You know him for his Cadbury Egg and Jelly Belly-filled candy baskets, but did you know that our furry friend is also quite the fashion tastemaker? That’s right!  Those floppy ears and bushy tails have been inspiring designer wares and model editorials for quite some time, and with the spring season in full effect what better time to pay tribute to our favorite hip-hopping friend?

From a White Rabbit-inspired Kate Moss, to Natalia Vodianova‘s numerous takes on those iconic ears, there’s certainly no shortage of bunny editorials to choose from this weekend.  But don’t worry, unlike the traditional Easter egg hunts of your childhood, we won’t make you search through the garden for these sweet treats!  Below we’ve rounded up all of our favorite photos of models rocking the classic bunny ears just in time for our fluffy friend’s visit this morning.  Here’s your chance to hop to it!

Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid Take Their Model Friendship to the NYC Streets

It was just last week that Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner debuted their latest Vogue editorial co-starring pal Justin Bieber and a selfie stick. Now, it appears the two It models have some competition in the most fashionable BFFs category in the form of Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid— that’s right, Gigi’s younger model sister.

The two up-and-coming models were spotted strutting down the NYC streets on Thursday, where they were reportedly shooting a new campaign for Denim & Supply Co. co-starring — get this— Gigi’s boyfriend Cody Simpson.  The celeb-model were seen holding hands and sharing secrets as they worked their effortlessly cool denim style for the cameras.  Among our favorite looks were two particularily Coachella-ready outfits: on Hailey a red floral print maxi dress and brown lace-up heeled boots; and on Bella, a black mini-dress styled with a Kurt Cobain-style flannel shirt, zip-up booties and chain-jewelry that recalled Kate Moss‘ ’90s grunge days.

No word yet on when the model’s campaign will hit, but judging by these photos, it’s going to be well worth the wait. Keep scrolling for a look at the models in action.

Look of the Week: Kendall Jenner’s Takes a Risk in a Skirt-Pants Hybrid

Full disclosure: we were fully prepared to dislike anything that goes by the name of “skirt-pants hybrid,” but leave it to Kendall Jenner to not only change our minds, but to also leave us wanting a pair of our own!

After walking in the Chanel Métiers d’Art show on Tuesday night, the model-of-the-moment stepped out in New York City wearing a monochromatic outfit worthy of a runway itself.  We’ll admit, it’s a bit unusual, and it did take us a second to get used to, but once we did, there was no turning back.  Unabashed by the outfit’s high risk factor, Kendall styled her furry-sleeved textural pullover with a gray skirt-pant hybrid that displayed just a hint of midriff and suede charcoal pumps. The finishing touches? Square shades and a black Marc Jacobs carryall— pieces subtle enough to let her pants do all the talking.

Follow in her footsteps and go gray-on-gray by layering an asymmetric wrap skirt over fitted pants washed in the same shade for a similar effect. Just remember, the key here, is the tailoring. Slouchy silhouettes could look messy and lead to unsightly bunching. Will you brave Kendall’s skirt-pants hybrid?

Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson Share Some Courtside PDA at the Knicks

For some, a NBA game is the place to cheer on your favorite team, munch on stadium snacks (hello, giant pretzel!) and for those over the age of 21, to kick back a few beers. But for some like Gigi Hadid  and her boyfriend Cody Simpson, it’s nothing more than a romantic date night spot.  Or so was the case at Wednesday night’s Knicks game against the Nets, where the two lovebirds could hardly keep their hands off of each other.

Seated in the front row next to actor Justin Long, the cute couple spent much of the game laughing, exchanging kisses and flashing big grins for the Jumbotron.  There was even some affectionate face-grabbing while the pop singer was spotted placing his arm over his gorgeous girlfriend. When they weren’t stealing kisses and whispering into each other’s ears, the pair were getting just as animated about the game going on in front of them with Gigi even jumping out of her seat on a few occasions to cheer on the Knicks, who sadly lost that night 100-98.

Ok, so Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are totally dating!  The music match were snapped enjoying the HAIM concert from a private area at The Troubador in West Hollywood on Thursday.  Harris was photographed wrapping his arms around Swift’s waist, and at one point, the pop singer was seen sitting in the EDM producer’s lap! After the concert ended, the lovebirds once again held hands before driving off in the same car. Neither Swift nor Harris has commented on the status of their relationship, but the new pictures speak volumes. ~ E! Online 

Filming for Ben Stiller’s Zoolander 2 is underway, and the movie’s cast just keeps getting bigger (we really hope those Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne rumors prove true)! he best and newest addition? Apparently it’s Kristen Wiig, not that you would be able to tell. The actress was spotted on the Rome set on Thursday sporting  a crazy updo, ridiculously plumped lips and an outrageous patterned outfit. No word yet on what character she’ll be playing, but by the looks of it, it’s going to be good! ~ Elle

Are social media pets the next big thing in fashion campaigns? More and more, brands looking for a boost are turning to four-legged talent and, apparently, man’s best friend is good at connecting with consumers online.  So much so, that blogger directory Fohr Card is now rolling out “Fur Card” the first service designed to help brands work with the most influential animals on social media. Where does your pet rank? ~WWD

Sia’s music video for “Big Girls Cry” was released on Thursday, and it’s nothing short of mesmerizing. The artist’s mini-me Maddie Ziegler, who wore the same nude leotard and blonde wig in Sia’s “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” videos, continues to impress with some rather intense interpretive choreography featuring solely her face and hands. ~ YouTube

It might seem like it’s been around forever, but Reformation is actually relatively young in the grander scheme of companies. And until now, the wildly successful brand has been largely self-funded.  All of that is about to change however, as the eco-friendly company has raised $12 million in funding thanks to Theory’s Andrew Rosen, editor and street style star Miroslava Duma, and model-turned-entrepreneur Karlie Kloss. ~ Fashionista

Aside from the occasional face mask, there appears to be nothing the models love incorporating into their selfies these days more than a pair of sleek sunnies.  Looking to expand upon our own sunglass collection this season (truthfully, our Wayfayers are beginning to feel a bit stale), we turned to Instagram and rounded up five of our favorite statement shades as seen on the likes of Alessandra AmbrosioMiranda KerrGigi Hadid  and others. Head here to shop the top 5 model-approved shades that all but guarantee a sexy selfie this spring (genetically-blessed DNA  not required). ~ Modelinia

The Only Pieces You Need For a Month of April Showers

Today in New York City was a scorcher! Ok, we digress – it wasn’t THAT hot, but with the sub-zero temperatures we’ve been enduring for what seems like two lifetimes, the fact that the mercury reached over 50 degrees today is cause for celebration enough.  But before we get ahead of ourselves and move right into our summer wardrobe – we need to remember that in order to get those storied “May flowers” we must endure the dreary “April showers.”  Just because it’s rainy is no excuse not to make the best of it, style speaking.  While everyone will be hidden away under black umbrellas and oversized rain jackets, check out our rainy-day picks in the slideshow below and stand out in STYLE – just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look your best!  Read the rest of this entry »
