Whether off duty or on, models had a very big year — and none was bigger for the likes of Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, and Cara Delevingne. Read on to find out why we couldn't look away from these faces and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top model!
There aren't many pieces in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that aren't spectacular, but this year's Shipwrecked section easily features some of the most romantic work the company has ever created.
"There's a real narrative to it," says Sophia Neophitou, the collection's creative director, in the exclusive video below. "We wanted to create the feeling that she'd made earrings from shells and bracelets from fishbones and pearls that she'd found in the sea."
You'll be able to see the full show on CBS this Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 10 p.m. EST. And while you can't buy any of those gorgeous wings, you can shop a few pieces of the lingerie the models wore down the runway.
While we were off eating turkey, Naomi Campbell had quite the chic few days down under. While promoting Australia's The Face, the model made the rounds in everything from crisp casualwear to an ultraelegant burgundy gown.
Not to be outdone, Kate Moss made a strong showing at London's Bookmarc in a sparkling mini and striped furry topper to promote her Playboy cover! And while on the topic of models, there was celebrating to be done for Joan Smalls's January Elle cover. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
Uniqlo will get a heavy dose of Parisian chic in March 2014 when it launches a collaboration with ultimate French style icon Inès de la Fressange. Her career in fashion has been wildly varied, but de la Fressange served as muse and creative collaborator on the collection, which is meant to serve as an "ideal wardrobe."
She was involved with every detail, down to the fittings, and her French flair shows in the easy but exacting chicness of the clothes. In a release, she says: "An interesting aspect about fashion is that by changing a few centimeters, or millimeters, one transforms the garment. And the more one talks about the 'basics,' and pieces that are easy to wear, the greater the importance of the subtleties that professionals in the business can bring."
After all, de la Fressange quite literally wrote the book on how to dress like a Frenchwoman. Her 2011 tome Parisian Chic: A Style Guide includes advice on everything from how to wear sequined sweaters to the cautionary statement, "Beware of good taste."
De la Fressange confesses to being a fan of the brand ("I often go to Uniqlo during my lunch break"), but what qualifies her to take on such a collaboration? She was once a model and muse to Karl Lagerfeld during his early years at Chanel. (They had a falling out in the early '90s but have since patched things up.) At 56, she can still be seen walking the runway every now and again — most notably for Jean Paul Gaultier in 2009 and Chanel in 2010. For the past 10 years, de la Fressange has worked as a consultant to Roger Vivier, perhaps the most French of all French shoe brands, and since 2011, she's been a spokeswoman for L'Oréal.
After supermodel Jessica Hart told a reporter she didn't think Taylor Swift — who was the fashion show's headlining performer — could make it as an Angel, rumors surfaced today that she had been fired from the lingerie brand. Victoria's Secret, however, insists that's not the case. Read on for what the brand had to say.
The scene at Monday's British Fashion Awards looked more like a runway than a red carpet — and with good reason. The evening celebrated the best the British fashion industry has to offer, and models and celebrities came out to support their designer friends in droves.
Kate Moss was there to receive a Special Recognition Award for her 25-year-long career, and the likes of Alexa Chung and Rita Ora were also spotted on the red carpet. So were Clémence Poésy, Laura Carmichael of TV's Downton Abbey, street style star Caroline Issa, and supermodel Arizona Muse.
A look at what they all wore here in the gallery.
We've been talking about it for months, but Kate Moss's Playboy cover has finally arrived! The 39-year-old model is on the cover of the magazine's January 2013 issue, which celebrates its 60th anniversary.
Photos of the cover were posted to Instagram late Sunday night by one of its photographers, Mert Alas. (For those of you keeping track, he's the same photographer who leaked Lady Gaga's Versace ads last month.) The magazine released the first image from Moss's shoot a few weeks ago, but you can see more shots of the model in the magazine here.
It's no surprise that with Thanksgiving happening on Thursday, many of this week's stylish snaps were taken across the pond in London. Taylor Swift traveled there to meet (and perform with) Prince William at the Winter Whites Gala on Tuesday, and models Eva Herzigova and Poppy Delevingne were spotted at Claridge's party for its Dolce & Gabbana Christmas tree.
In New York, a bevy of models including Iman and Jessica Stam showed up for a screening of Idris Elba's new film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Elsewhere in the world of style, Jennifer Lopez stepped out to join the Dsquared2 team for a private dinner at LA's Chateau Marmont, and Giovanna Battaglia made for excellent company at N°21 and Alessandro Dell'Acqua's table at a New York residence. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
Should you ever have the opportunity to mess with Chrissy Teigen, we advise that you don't. The model and social media sensation is the star of a new commercial that sees her in a knock-down, drag-out fight with two other models, Hannah Davis and Tori Praver, over a pair of discounted boots.
The Rampage commercial gets pretty vicious at times, but it's a pretty hilarious send-up of just how ugly even beautiful people can get on the hunt for good Black Friday deals. Take a look at the commercial above — and see the even-funnier blooper reel here.
