We see photos of thin models digitally manipulated to look even thinner all the time, so we were pretty skeptical of The Sun’s claims about thirty-year-old Romanian model Ioana Spangenberg. More
Topic: Stella Tennant
Enduring ’90s supe Stella Tennant is front and center in Zara’s impressively chic, understated Fall ’11 lookbook. We were kind of floored by the sophisticated menswear-inspired pieces, as well as the occasional playful look (like the polka dot blouse and unexpected orange/cyan/checked gray ensemble above). Check out all the looks in the gallery ahead. More
Fashion industry luminaries descended upon Natalia Vodianova’s White Fairy Tale Love Ball. Vodianova’s event called for “white or silver” gowns, which Daphne Guinness seemed to ignore. Check out all the opulent couture on supermodels (Stella! Mariacarla! Eva!), actresses (Anne!), designers (Valentino!) and editors alike. And Olivia Palermo. More
UK power agency Select Model Management (home to Agyness Deyn, Caroline Trentini, Stella Tennant and Natasha Poly) just launched an app called Model Potential, which allows users to submit a portrait, which then determines his or her (guess) model potential. And how does the app work this wonder? Algorithms. Complex ones. More
The “Savage Beauty” retrospective of Alexander McQueen is almost here and to coincide with the exhibit’s opening, Vogue got Steven Meisel to shoot a bunch of top models in a bunch of the label’s most astonishing creations. Sarah Burton, McQueen’s right hand for so long, discussed the method behind each look (live plants! prosthetics! sewing individual flowers onto things!) and one I found especially compelling detailed the making of this gown from the Spring 2001 Voss collection, seen here on Stella Tennant: More
I’m a fan of Chanel. But with respect to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel couture collection which showed today, I am not a fan. The looks were dizzying in their incoherence: spider veins coming down jackets transitioned into sequined trousers, which in turn transitioned into 80′s proportions and skirt after skirt worn over pant after pant. It’s quite possible I just missed the point Mr. Lagerfeld was trying to make, but it’s also quite possible he tried to make way too many and lost his focus. More
High-profile Spring 2011 campaigns have been flooding the internet lately. It seems like every one of them has a buzzworthy backstory–the first campaign for Alexander McQueen since Sarah Burton took the reigns, Crystal Renn snags another high fashion brand, Leighton Meester grins for Missoni while we await the release of Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively’s Chanel ads. Oh, and Freja Beha is still everywhere. Let’s have a look at what’s coming down the campaign chute right now. More

Inspired by yesterday’s subject of whether models are just too young, I’ve put together a gallery of some gorgeous women who still walk the runway, carry high-profile campaigns and headline blue chip editorials… all over 30. The criteria? They had to have walked in a show or starred in a campaign/editorial for a major glossy within the last year. I’ve tried to ignore the more obvious More
Fashion models: some are gorgeous at any age and enjoy careers that span decades: just look at Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Stella Tenant. But for the most part, mannequins are all very young, very thin, and very … More
Okay, I’m not sure we can objectively say that they’re “the best” but these models are definitely favorites here at TheGloss. We’re sure we’ve missed some, so feel free to let us know who you’d include in the comments.
