As if you needed any more evidence that Natalia Vodianova is a genetically perfect race of dystopian replicant, here it is. More
The Fall 2013 Givenchy show walked in Paris yesterday and, predictably, a shitload of famous people stopped by. Some glittery front row regulars (Kanye West, with girlfriend Kim Kardashian in tow, Amanda Seyfried, newly minted fashion darling Jessica Chastain, etc) and some industry big hitters (Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo) were all in attendance.
How many of them wore sunglasses at night? More
Here at The Gloss, we love catching fashion magazines in their stubborn reliance on old cliché. Whether it’s cartoonish carb-loading or yet another faux-provocative editorial featuring sexy nuns or still more grocery store spreads or just, uh, racism–apparently there’s a painfully small number of ideas in the world.
V Magazine’s latest issue features an editorial called The Discreet Charm of Kate Upton–shot by Sebastian Faena, it’s ostensibly an homage to Buñuel, but it’s also yet another fashion spread preoccupied with a bored, beautiful woman in designer clothes. Upton’s character appears to be having an affair (though she never sets down her Marc Jacobs bag)–while her many, many precursors are stuck with less glamorous household chores. But all of them are dressed to the nines!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have split–after some cryptic tweets and a pap sighting or two, rumor mills place the blame squarely on the beautiful shoulders of 19-year-old fashion (and lingerie!) model Barbara Palvin. Apparently Bieber got a little too close to the doe-eyed brunette while performing at the hallucinatory nightmare that is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the pair subsequently took in Lion King on Broadway. …Which means you’ll probably be hearing a lot about Palvin in the coming weeks–before hordes of Beliebers tear her limb from willowy limb. Here’s a primer on Palvin’s brief but impressive career. More
Though perhaps it’s just more of a traditional puppy face? More
You may never know intimately the excitement that comes with being backstage at Fashion Week, or the way a vintage Halston gown may feel against your skin, but these 20 models bring you as close to it as you can get to it all. More
Take a look at these photos and tell me if you see anything reminiscent of Marie Antoinette. More

Gisele Bundchen is “perfect” and here she is with some free weights. That’s all of our do-gooding until next year, folks. More
A couple months ago, Cindy Crawford‘s 10-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber snagged a Versace campaign and we pondered whether or not she was too young. Soon after, Gisele Bundchen‘s niece launched a clothing collection and started modeling. This week, supermodel Natalia Vodianova upped the ante by casting her 6-year-old daughter in a campaign benefiting the Naked Heart Foundation. More
Supermodel Natalia Vodianova got into a bit of trouble earlier this week when–while seated on a model panel at the Vogue festival–she offered a rather unfortunate soundbite: “C’mon guys, you know it’s better to be skinny than to be fat.” A minor shitstorm ensued, partly because it’s a slow news cycle and partly because Vodianova herself has done a lot of work to fight negative body image and increasing pressures to be (extremely) thin in the modeling industry.
