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
Rihanna and Cara Delevingne have decided it’s a good idea to move in together. Here are 5 other fashion icons who would make bad roommates. More
Everyone has that insufferable friend on Instagram who’s constantly posting photos of himself or herself, often with a million hashtags, always with a pout. Occasionally, the selfie is ostensibly about something else–maybe “hair” like Miley Cyrus below–other times, they’re just pure, unadulterated vanity presented without apology or explanation. Oh, and sometimes that obnoxious Instagram person you follow just so happens to be famous.
Here are 20 fashion industry luminaries who love their own reflection and the various ways in which that manifests. More
We don’t normally expect to see much of ANTM winners after their cycles wrap, but this one is the face of a really sexy lingerie campaign. More
It’s Friday! Time to kick back, crack a beer and take a look back on the craziness that was New York Fashion Week. More
Ahead, see Anna Wintour, Katie Holmes, Julienne Moore, Nicki Minaj, Tyra Banks and a whole bunch of models. Here’s what the rich, famous and occasionally fashionable wore to yesterday’s shows… More
Tyra Banks actually does a spot-on Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne. More
Earlier this week, we learned that Gisele Bundchen had recorded a very-not-great cover of a perfect song, “All Day & All of the Night” by The Kinks–we then promptly learned it was a charity single, each download of which benefitted UNICEF and we felt really bad about hating it (just not enough to stop). And two weeks before that? Ubiquitous Brit Cara Delevingne revealed that she can sing, in addition to model and make funny faces.
However, listening to Bundchen’s cover got us thinking: while there have been several high profile attempts by models to become singers (and actresses), how many would we characterize as successful? The answer: not a lot. More
As far as supermodels turned singers go, we’d rank it somewhere in the neighborhood of Tyra Banks, but less self-serving. More
PR powerhouse Kelly Cutrone has made a career (in fashion and reality TV) out of being too-honest to handle, and she has some choice words about the fashion industry and consumers. More
From the first black model to cover a Vogue magazine to the first African American woman to pose in a bikini for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue cover (take a wild guess who that is), these fashion firsts have been enormously significant in paving the way for other black models to find success of their own. See some of their accomplishments here… More
He was wearing baggy pants, surrounded by security guards, and being chased by a throng of young girls. Logically, one would conclude that it might be the Biebs. More
As Joel McHale likes to say on The Soup, we did not alter this image in any way. That is indeed Tyra Banks, supermodel and America’s Next Top Model judge. In fact, it’s nothing but Tyra: She brags about not relying on makeup or a weave as she joins the ranks of female celebrities baring all on Twitter. Except, whereas usually makeup-free twitpics make us feel closer to the stars in question, we’re kinda terrified because Tyra legitimately looks like an alien here. More
Earlier today, Ashley told you about the many fashion disasters that occurred at the Twilight premiere, and you laughed and laughed at Kristen Stewart for showing us her underpants. The good news is that some people do know how to dress themselves (or at least hire a decent stylist), and they were all at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards. Let’s look at the pretty dresses and try to ignore the fact that they gave Lena Dunham something called the “Voice Of A Generation” award, which she presumably accepted instead of saying “that’s something my character said about herself while she was on drugs, guys. I would never sincerely say that about myself.” More
