    Karlie Kloss quit Victoria’s Secret role over ‘wrong message'

    Karlie Kloss says she decided to stop being a Victoria’s Secret Angel because the role did not give out “the kind of message I want to send to young women”.The 26-year-old supermodel was a regular on the Victoria’s Secret fashion show runway from 2011 to 2014, before taking a break and returning to much fanfare in 2017. She was absent for the most recent show in November last year.She told Vogue: “I decided to stop working with Victoria’s Secret as I didn’t feel it was an image that was truly reflective of who I am and the kind of message I want to send to young women around the world about what it means to be beautiful. “I think that was a pivotal moment in me stepping into my power as a feminist, being able to make my own choices and my own narrative, whether through the companies I choose to work with, or through the image I put out to the world.”Kloss added that in her late teens and early twenties “I think I was fearful that I would lose a job or lose my position if I said I didn’t want to do something. But I did not lose out on jobs. If anything, the more I exercised the power of my voice, the more I earned respect from my peers. And I earned more respect for myself. “Only now do I have the confidence to stand tall — all 6ft 2in of me — and know the power of my voice. I am deeply ambitious and driven, and there are a lot of big things I want to do — big things. But I also want to enjoy the people I love and who love me. It’s important that I have joy in my life”.Kloss converted to Judaism to marry Joshua Kushner in October. Joshua’s brother is Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser of Donald Trump. She said: “It wasn’t enough to just love Josh and make this decision for him. This is my life and I am an independent, strong woman. It was only after many years of studying and talking with my family and friends and soul-searching that I made the decision to fully embrace Judaism in my life and start planning for a future with the man I chose to marry.”Read the full interview in the August issue of British Vogue, out on Friday.

    Ashley Graham says she’s had to ‘work harder’ than other models because of her size

    Ashley Graham has spoken about the difficulties she's faced in the fashion industry, saying she's had to "work harder" than other models because of her size.Graham, who became the first size-16 model to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2016, has championed body positivity throughout her career.The 31-year-old's path to success – which has included modelling on the covers of Vogue, Elle and Glamour – hasn't always been a smooth ride, she explained."I have had to work harder than everybody else because of my size," she told Harper's Bazaar UK. "I've always had to suck it up."If you're the kind of person who's never been glamourised in fashion then you have to justify why you're meant to be there through your efforts."However, despite the obstacles she's faced, Graham prefers to not think of her journey as "hard". "Has it been hard? I'd prefer to say that it's been rewarding," she stated.The model has always been frank about her body image, in the hope that she may inspire others to be the same."I've always been very honest in sharing the insecurities I have. Cellulite, back fat... It opened a door for other women to share their insecurities," Graham said."If we all feel the same way, why are we stressing about it? I've never gone to therapy but having these conversations really does help."In March, Graham called out publications which airbrush models while making an appearance on Australian talk show The Project.The model warned that there's "still so much retouching that's happening, trying to change who we are", adding that people have tried to "manipulate" her body for years.Graham also discussed the use of the term "plus size", explaining why she's not a fan of the phrase."Why do we have to describe a woman because of a number inside of her pants?" she said.Graham's new interview is in the July issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, on sale from Thursday.For all the latest news from the fashion industry, click here.

    Gigi Hadid: The model on her way to the top

    If you don’t know the Hadid family name, where have you been for the past couple of years? Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid are three model names to know, making up the fashion industry’s current It family. But it’s Gigi that kickstarted it all. After kickstarting her modelling career at the tender age of two, the now 22-year-old moved to the catwalks, finding firm fans in the likes of Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld and Donatella Versace. Tommy Hilfiger liked the Californian so much that he asked her to collaborate with him on collection after collection, resulting in three sell-out ranges and counting. Gigi has wangled her way to the top, earning the Model of the Year trophy at the 2016 Fashion Awards. With a nomination for the same award this year, will she win once again? Or will her younger sister, Bella, pip her to the post? Follow us on   Instagram  and   Facebook  for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
