Doutzen Kroes and Sunnery James Celebrate Their Anniversary With Beach PDA

Leave it to Doutzen Kroes to make a regular day at the beach look like a Vogue photo shoot.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel proved she’s still every bit the super while hitting the beach on Monday during a getaway with her husband Sunnery James in Miami.  The mother-of-two flaunted her famous figure in a grey and black tiger print swimsuit by We Are Handsome, while pulling her perfect beach hair back into a half-up style.

The happy couple were on hand to celebrate both their six year anniversary and Sunnery’s 36th birthday, and appeared to be making the most of it with a little R&R (and loads of PDA!) at the place that they first met— the two actually met on Sunnerys’s birthday on the beach.

Never one to shy away from a sexy selfie, Doutzen has been busy sharing a number of sun-strewn photos to Instagram these last few days, including a throwback photo to the couple’s wedding day in November 2010 and a more recent one of the two cuddling on a boat with the caption, “Enjoying a beautiful day #love.”

Keep reading to see more photos of Doutzen on the beach with her handsome husband.

Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner Reunite in the Name of Chanel

In anticipation of the Chanel Metiers d’Art show being held at the Park Avenue Armory in New York later this evening, Karl Lagerfeld hosted a celebratory cruise along the Hudson River on Monday night and as expected, all of the cool kids were there.

Once the sun set, the designer set sail towards Ellis Island with a number of his biggest supporters on deck, including Katy Perry, Alexa Chung, Dakota Johnson, Kris Jenner and ‘It’ models Lily Donaldson, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski, Anna Ewers and Gigi Hadid .  Still, if we had to guess we’d say no one was more thrilled about the #CruiseWithKarl than model besties Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner.  Having been separated since the fashion house’s fall ’15 show earlier this month, the BFFs were eager to reunite aboard the Chanel ship— so eager in fact, that they practically ran into each other’s arms for the kind of hug that is typically reserved for your long lost love.  There was lifting, foot popping and full, around-the-neck squeezes.  In other words, it was a total love fest.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kanye West and more huge musicians joined Jay Z on Monday for the relaunch of their new music streaming service, Tidal, which Jay Z himself acquired for $56 million earlier this year.  The NYC event kicked off with  an introduction and inspiring opening statement from Alicia Keys, after which all 16 artist stake-holders signed the official “Tidal declaration.” And just like that, history was made. ~ PopSugar

Both Coachella and Lollapalooza have listed selfie sticks on their list of items prohibited this year. (Coachella, we should note, listed it as a dual ban on “Selfie Sticks/’Narsisstics.’”) Native American—style headdresses are still A-okay, though. ~ The Cut 

It hasn’t even been two weeks since we learned that Marc by Marc Jacobs would be discontinued and folded into Marc Jacobs’s main line, but the brand’s Creative Director Katie Hillier and Design Director Luella Bartley are already onto their next project. The London-based designers announced Tuesday that they have launched Hillier Bartley, a luxury women’s label that includes ready-to-wear, bags and accessories  full of classic English references. ~ WWD

Just 24 hours after Yoox Group and Richemont both confirmed that they were in talks regarding a “potential business combination” of Yoox and Net-a-Porter, that deal has been solidified.  According to a statement from Richemont, it has signed an agreement to merge Net-a-Porter with Yoox into a new entity called the “Yoox Net-a-Porter Group.” ~ WWD

Has Versace copied an American Apparel T-shirt created by British-born artist Kesh? The LA-based creative shared images from the Italian label’s spring 2015 collection, expressing her outrage that the $650 T-shirt is selling out at Selfridges, two years after her original high-street version debuted for less than $30. ~ Yahoo Style

The Models’ Guide to This Season’s Best Face Oils

Once the best-kept secret of star aestheticians and makeup artists alone, face oils now reign supreme for, well, everyone.  It’s easy to see why, of course. Blended with a wide range of powerhouse essences, these potent elixirs have the unique ability to mimic the skin’s natural lipid structure, allowing them to be absorbed more easily and perform multiple tasks, from dissolving makeup and skin impurities to brightening the complexion.  Still, if you ask us, their most impressive quality yet may just be their cult modeling following.  From the Victoria’s Secret models to the Vogue cover girls, it’ no coincidence that today’s top models will all willingly admit to being obsessed with their go-to face oil— whether it be made of coconut, rosehip, or grape seed oil.  The confusing part then isn’t whether or not to jump on the bandwagon, but deciding which one to settle down with. To aid in your decision process, we rounded up 5 supermodel-approved formulas that promise to do everything from clam redness to clear breakouts to restore a healthy glow.  Scroll through the slideshow below for a look at the top picks.

Chrissy Teigen to Host the 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Chrissy Teigen just gave us a whole new reason to tune into this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl and host Spike TV’s new celebrity-game show Lip Sync Battle, will join Ludacris as the host of the annual awards show, which will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 17. This will be the supermodel’s first time hosting the star-studded event, while Ludacris will return for his second time hosting, following last year’s co-host stint.

“If my extensive collection of all 53 ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’ compilations is any indication, I am both qualified and honored to join Ludacris in hosting this amazing show that spotlights the best music and artists of the year,” Chrissy said in a statement in her signature hilarious fashion.

If her gut-busting Instagrams and viral Twitter rants are evidence of what we can expect from Chrissy as a awards show host, then needless to say, we’re in for a treat.

The finalists for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards will be announced on Tuesday, April 7.  The show will air live Sunday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
