Leonardo DiCaprio and his rumored new girlfriend, Toni Garrn, went on a tour of the Palace of Versailles outside of Paris yesterday. The two took photos on the grounds, with Leo pausing to snap a picture of Toni in front of a building. While checking out Versailles, Toni hustled after Leo and reached out for his hand so they could walk together. The couple were joined by Leo's friend Lukas Haas, who also paused to take a photo with Toni on a balcony. This isn't the first time we've seen Leo with the Victoria's Secret model, as they were first spotted together in Nice, France, after Leo premiered The Great Gatsby at the Cannes Film Festival. He has been spending the past few weeks touring Europe, including watching the French Open and walking along the Seine with a group of pals.
Leonardo DiCaprio hung out with Victoria's Secret model Toni Garrn in Nice, France, on Sunday. He was spotted chatting with a smiling Toni and a group of friends in a black car after arriving to Port Saint Laurent Du Var on a small boat. This isn't the first time that we've seen Leo surrounded by beautiful women — Leo partied in Cannes, including several yacht rides and a trip to a club, with a large group of pals last week. Toni also tweeted that she was at the amfAR gala last Thursday, where a space trip with Leo himself on Virgin Galatic was auctioned off to raise money for the AIDS charity.
Toni is a native of Hamburg, Germany, and has appeared in Vogue, Elle, and campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Burberry. She also starred alongside Leo's ex-girlfriend Erin Heatherton for Victoria's Secret's Dream Angel line last year. The blond beauty already wrapped up her French Riviera trip with Leo, though, and tweeted that she got back to work in NYC on Monday.
For its June 2012 issue, German Vogue tapped Peter Lindbergh for a series of black-and-white portraits that reveal — and celebrate — what other magazines often try to hide.
The resulting editorial, cleverly named "The Naked Truth," features German models Toni Garnn and Nadja Auermann, as well as actress Nina Hoss and photographer Donata Wenders, among others, in various states of undress.
Lindbergh's sometimes raw images were taken under the new Vogue Health Initiative, which asks the magazine's 19 editions to portray a healthier, more inclusive image of women in their pages. June issues of 18 of those magazines will be dedicated to health and wellness — American Vogue featured Olympic athletes and French Vogue asked Gisele Bundchen for advice on staying fit. Vogue Japan's healthy issue will bow in July.
Take a look at German Vogue's effort here in the gallery.
>> Balmania is clearly not entirely over. One Miu Miu dress style (two colors) scored at least three fashion magazine covers over the Summer, but in the months since, a Fall 2010 gold Balmain dress — originally worn by Anja Rubik on the runway — is besting the Miu Miu dress twice over, with six covers so far. The Balmain look was first spotted on Abbey Lee Kershaw's August 2010 Vogue Germany cover, and has since been sported on covers by Cindy Crawford, Anna Dello Russo, and Natalia Vodianova. At least one more cover may be on the way — Anne Hathaway is said to be wearing "sparkly gold" Balmain on Elle UK's December 2010 cover.
>> Set on the French Riviera in Saint Tropez with the models arriving on motorboats from a yacht in the harbor, Chanel's Cruise 2011 show reflected the '70s throwback party atmosphere emulated in Karl Lagerfeld's short film shown last night. Natasha Poly opened barefoot in a pastel print dress, and Karolina Kurkova and Abbey Lee Kershaw danced down the runway in knits. Toni Garrn and Jacquetta Wheeler made runway returns, and Crystal Renn, riding the current "plus size model" wave, made a cameo.
For the finale, front rowers like Anna Mougalis, Carine Roitfeld, Andre Leon Talley in a green cape, Emmanuelle Alt, Diane Kruger, Vanessa Paradis, and Franca Sozzani witnessed Lagerfeld's bodyguard Sebastien Jondeau pulling up on a motorcycle (which temporarily stalled) with Georgia May Jagger on the back. Then, appropriately, to a Rolling Stones soundtrack, Lagerfeld appeared in a purple jacket for his bow — and Abbey Lee threw her arm around Karl's shoulder.
>> Last runway season, Toni Garrn only walked a select few shows in Paris because she was supposedly focusing on her studies, and for Fall 2010, she didn't walk any: her agency told Zeit she was finishing up final exams to graduate this Spring, instead. She did, however, make time to shoot with Miles Aldridge for Vogue Italia's March 2010 issue.
>> For his second major runway show in Paris — last time around he surprised everyone with a video presentation instead — Gareth Pugh, went softer, androgynous, and gray. None of his until-now trademark hard-edged black and white palette to be seen — gray covered the model's faces, hairs, nails, bodies, and even blocked out their eyebrows. Toni Garrn walked for the first time this season.
Showstopping plumed mohawk headdresses are an editorial shoe-in, and will perhaps soon be seen on front row guest Rihanna, dressed in Pugh, who marked the designer's first major celebrity front row guest (Adrian Grenier and Michael Stipe also attended). Both menswear and womenswear were combined into one show this season, which ended with the Cranberries' "Zombie" playing — perhaps symbolic of the season's "gender-bending zombie look," as the Los Angeles Times's Booth Moore put it. More details from the show here.
>> Three Models Supposedly Skipping Fashion Month for Studies, A Fourth May Also Be Taking a Break —Although it's possible that they still may pop up in Paris or Milan, three top models: Sigrid Agren, Toni Garrn, and Georgina Stojiljkovic are all supposedly skipping out this season to focus on their studies. And Gucci face Myf Shepherd — who surprisingly only walked eight relatively low-profile shows (except 3.1 Phillip Lim) in New York and so far none in London — has apparently said that she's thinking of taking a break, as well.

>> Models Missing from the New York Runways: An Update —With only one more day of New York Fashion Week to go, a number of top models still haven't set foot on a catwalk. Anja Rubik finally appeared at Michael Kors this morning — so did Carmen Kass and Jacquetta Wheeler — but Catherine McNeil — who is supposedly booked all through the New York shows on another job — Toni Garrn, Lara Stone, Anna Maria Jagodzinska, Sigrid Agren — who's rumored not to be doing any shows this season — Tanya Dziahileva, Raquel Zimmermann, and Georgina Stojiljkovic are all totally MIA. In other modeling news, Jessica Stam joined the increasingly large number of models bleaching their hair — she debuted the new hue today at Anna Sui. [Fashin]
