As one of our most hyped living actors and a former teen heartthrob to boot, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t usually have any trouble getting models to date him. He gets older, they stay the same age. But if tabloids are to be believed, he finally got turned down by one the other night at Cannes, namely one Ms. Cara Delevingne, who, at age 20, is probably too young to even remember a time when Leo was the default locker decoration for teens who like dudes.

Look, before we begin telling the tale of Jennie Jerome, mother of Winston Churchill, I am going to tell you a personal story that you are not allowed to interrupt. More
A woman just entered her unborn fetus in a beauty pageant. Because that is a totally normal, reasonable thing to do! You want to start kids on those beauty pageants as early as possible, sometimes before they have ever seen the light of day (or anything outside of a womb). According to this hilarious write-up on Jezebel: More
Miss USA Nana Meriwether says she wants to marry Prince Harry, because they have so much in common! They both love birding! Haha, no. All they have in common is being tall and good looking. More
If there is one thing I have learned about history, it’s that if you are a woman with common sense, people are going to decide that you are a witch. Meet Roxelana. More
Robyn Lawley–she of the Italian Vogue covers, watershed Ralph Lauren campaigns and general goodness and decency–stopped by the 2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala last night and looked stunning in a strapless beige cocktail dress and matching ankle boots. Please admire how amazing she looks.
…Of course, we were supposed to make the headline “Plus Size Model Robyn Lawley Something Something” but we couldn’t do it without at least quotation marks.
A minor uproar has arisen over the latest cover of T, The New York Times‘ style magazine. Apparently, it has offended the delicate sensibilities of NYT readers from Westport to Park Slope because it features a thin, young-looking model wearing vaguely bondage-inspired things. That’s right: they are mad at a fashion magazine for printing photos of a fashion model. Who is wearing fashion. More
Being the result of a very dark parent and a very light parent coming together, I neither burn nor tan when I am put in the sun — I just stay skim milk blue/white. As a result of these genetics, as well as living in California for several years, I have always been somewhat curious to see how I would look as a bronze lady. Unfortunately, I am terrified of sunless tanner, so I kind of gave up that dream years ago. But I am debating trying St. Tropez, which has just debuted Kate Moss as its new “face.” More

Ali Lohan is not just Lindsay Lohan‘s little sister (or Dina Lohan‘s taller meal ticket) (or Michael Lohan‘s, for that matter)–she is her own separate person. She is also still trying to make this modeling thing happen.
But! She’s trying a new approach. More
Sometimes I look at pictures of Maria Callas and I just marvel at her incredible beauty. The lady was stunning, you know. I mean, not astonishing in a “pretty blonde suntanned” way, but gorgeous in that you could look at her face endlessly and always be fascinated. The contours! Those eyes! I look again, and think she was very lucky, and then I remember that this is a woman who swallowed a tapeworm and probably had one of the unhappiest lives possible
Great cheekbones, though.
And a spectacular voice.
Have you heard of model boxing matches? They are apparently a thing in New York right now. I ended up at one by accident the other day, on mushrooms, and it was actually pretty amazing. More
