Many people might think that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are all the same, but they’d be wrong. In fact, Kendall Jenner considers herself…
Several models appear in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated wearing nothing but a hand-painted swimsuit. 21-year-old Brazilian face Anne de Paula wore rainbow body paint (covering up all the necessities, of course) for a sultry shoot on the beach. Size 16 Hunter McGrady was one such name that stood out after it was announced that she was the curviest model to ever feature in the magazine’s pages.
Model Liza Golden-Bhojwani shared her dramatic weight gain on Instagram after practically starving herself on 500 calories a day.
There’s a widespread perception that models have naturally flawless skin, but one model is on a mission to debunk that image of perfection by embracing her skin, acne and all — and she’s encouraging others who struggle with skin blemishes to do the same. When Starlie Smith, or “Queen Starlie” as her Instagram fans know her, strutted the catwalk at the Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week last month, it wasn’t her perfectly-coiffed raven tresses that had the Internet talking. “Here’s some acne positivity,” one person commented in a Reddit thread, alongside a runway photo of Starlie where she displays less than flawless skin.
Caitin Stickles, 29, was born with a rare disorder called Schmid–Fraccaro Syndrome, or Cat Eye Syndrome, which can cause facial disfiguration and an absence of pigment in the eyes, giving them a “cat-like” appearance. While Stickels may not adhere to the fashion industry’s conventional idea of beauty, she’s currently featured in a stunning editorial for V magazine, after being discovered on Instagram. “@Regrann from @nick_knight – The absolutely stunning @caitinkitten from the story I am releasing tomorrow in @vmagazine and on @showstudio .
Australian model Stevie Alger was ‘slut-shamed’ in an Instagram direct message because she didn’t like the photo a swimwear label planned to use for their latest campaign. Stevie, 19, was paid to model for Queensland bikini brand Aquadiva, but voiced concern when the boss lady Allison Appleby told her a specific picture would run on a poster at the label’s pop-up store. Stevie was unsure about the image and told Allison via message that she felt “self conscious” because her boyfriend and all of her friends would be at the event.
Shot by photographer, Harry Were, the beautiful images feature 57-year-old model, Mercy Brewer, as the star of the labels autum/winter 2017 campaign. “Perceptions of beauty have and always will change, therefore I think we can conclude its standard is not set in stone, and new beauty is always waiting to be discovered,” she said of the campaign. “I believe we are in a moment in time where older women’s beauty has been a startling revelation.
There’s been much buzz about the upcoming Middle Eastern edition of Vogue magazine, conceived in part as a response to “the region’s luxury-retail sector,” which “has been booming for a few decades,” according to New York Magazine’s The Cut. First, it was announced that Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz had been named editor in chief of Vogue Arabia. Now the face that’s been chosen to launch the publication’s premiere issue has been revealed — although the selection shouldn’t be too surprising.
Doing it for the ’gram was just taken a step — or maybe an arm, in this case — too far. A video of Viktoria Odintcova dangling off the ledge of a 73-story building in the United Arab Emirates recently went viral. Why did she do it? For a good photo (and attention, of course).
If you’re not yet aware of the name Halima Aden, you might want to start paying attention. Last night, she made headlines by making her catwalk debut in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show. Clad in a floor length fur coat (fake we hope, but with Kanye who knows?), black pointed boots and her hijab, which shouldn’t be a big deal but is thanks to the fact that it’s still pretty rare to see a model sporting one at NYFW.
Kelsey and Camille Grammer’s daughter, Mason, is yet another celeb kid who has gotten the attention of the fashion world. On Thursday, the 15-year-old made an appearance on designer Malan Breton’s runway, rocking a floral printed dress and a vampy lip, serving ladylike spookiness.
If Gigi Hadid isn’t already seen as a positive role model in the fashion industry, then she definitely should now. The 21-year-old model appears on the March cover of British Vogue and isn’t afraid to talk body critics in the accompanying interview. Back in September 2015, Gigi posted an open letter on Instagram in response to a barrage of social media abuse targeting her ‘not thin enough’ body.
A woman from Aarhus, Denmark, who was once classified as “morbidly obese” after tipping the scales at 268 pounds, now works as a physical trainer and sportswear model after dropping more than half of the weight in a period of four years. Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.
