Topic: Linda Evangelista
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.

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

After I read a sample of Tyra Banks‘ new novel Modelland a few weeks ago, I thought it sounded like a fashion-themed ripoff of The Hunger Games. However, I got my hands on a copy of the full text, which comes out on September 13, and think there’s a lot more going on that just one plotline that reminds me of Suzanne Collins‘ hugely successful trilogy. The book is also a gateway into the mind of Tyra herself, and there’s a lot to be gleaned from peeking into her – or her ghostwriter’s – psyche. But what did it teach me about being a model? More
