Earlier today, fashion photographer Bruce Weber revealed that the only model he’s ever kicked off set was (his now-friend) Cindy Crawford–the two were working on a Revlon shoot back in the day and apparently the young supermodel was so rude to the crew that Weber lost his temper and sent her home. Crawford in her ’90s heyday could get away with just about anything, though, so the ejection probably came as a cruel surprise.
Of course, this one little anecdote doesn’t qualify Crawford for the pantheon of models with legendarily bad attitudes–the phone-throwing, trash-talking, always late to everything supermodels like the ones below. More

After a couple months of speculation, Kate Moss has finally been confirmed for the January/February cover of Playboy–which just so happens to be the 60th anniversary issue.
Why this is a big deal, we’re not entirely sure–Moss has done more nude shoots than just about any model of her profile we can think of and, moreover, plenty of other fashion models have gotten naked for Hugh Hefner‘s equally beloved and reviled lad mag. Let’s take a look!
Ed. Note: The list is obviously not safe for work, because it includes covers of foreign editions of the magazine, which have a devil-may-care attitude about visible breasts. Also, the final entry is disturbing (but censored). More
Since you read fashion blogs, you may have heard about how the ’90s are back–or noticed people on the street with plaid shirts tied around their waists, the ubiquitous crop tops on red carpets, the dark lipsticks on runways, the chokers. Now, then, seems like a perfect time to bring back one of the most delightful parts of the era: the supermodel. Interview Magazine is celebrating the decade’s biggest stars with a series of black and white covers shot by power duo Mert & Marcus for the September issue–the so-called “model issue.” The collection features everyone you’d expect: Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and more.

The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners were Proenza Schouler (womenswear designer of the year), Phillip Lim (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.
Here’s what the very stylish and the very victimized wore to the so-called Oscars of fashion.
Chanel had a splashy party last night, celebrating its the 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection created by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. Naturally, a bunch of the brand’s very fancy friends and spokeswomen showed up: Blake Lively with her gigantor wedding ring, January Jones, Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung, a slew of models and more. They pretty much all wore Chanel, doye. More
Sometimes TheGloss’ editors get really jealous of Cat Marnell for all that material she can draw from. More
i-D Magazine must not be among the fashion glossies hurting for funds. For their fall “Role Model” issue, i-D shot sixteen very impressive covers featuring a mixture of supermodels like Linda Evangelista and Gisele Bundchen, and up-and-comers like Jourdan Dunn and Kolfinna Kristófersdóttir. Stylistically, the covers are fairly diverse; some are in color, some in black and white, and some are styled in an ultra-modern way while others are more retro. But in each one, the model is hiding one of her eyes, which creates a nice common thread. Here are all them. More
Here are three things there’s no chance you’re not sick of: 1) Lindsay Lohan, 2) Terry Richardson, celebrities getting 3) all Marilyn Monroe‘ed out and vamping about in bonde waves, red lipstick and vintage lingerie. …Add “double negatives” as a potential four? …Anyway, Richardson and Lohan’s sleazy love affair endures in the latest issue of Love (the one with Linda Evangelista on the cover) and these here are the outtakes. All the typical Richardson ingredients are present: semi-nudity, cigarettes, upskirts, saturated light, blank expressions, etc. so if panty shots of Lindsay Lohan aren’t safe for your work, don’t look.
OG supermodel Linda Evangelista will cover Love magazine’s February issue. More

When reading W‘s art and fashion issue, you might want to pay close attention to the pages and pages of ads you normally skip through to get to the editorial content. This is because, scattered among the ads for actual products, are nine completely fake ads for fake products shot by the wonderful Steven Meisel. They star such familiar faces as Karen Elson, Linda Evangelista, and good old Joan Rivers, and I happen to think they’re a pretty brilliant marriage of fashion and art. More
