Plus size models are in Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue. Being in the swimsuit issue is a big deal for any model’s career. People have wanted plus size representation in the issue for years. On Wednesday we learned that size 16 Ashley Graham will be heating up the issue in advertisement for swimwear brand Swimsuits For All. There is a video version of the print ad too. Both of them are pretty hot. I hope you check that out.
Naomi Campbell slays at 44 years of age! She is a true supermodel…okokokokok!!!!! She looks amazing. Her body is insane. I can only hope and pray that my body looks somewhat like that when I get to be her age. Also doesn’t the shoot with Jourdan Dunn look super cute and fun. I love that these two brands chose black models to pose for and represent them. Here’s to hoping more brands follow suit soon!
Check out in Sasha Pivovarova in “Incendiaire” by David Sims for Vogue Paris, August 2014. I hadn’t really seen her modeling in a lot of things lately, but then all of sudden I started seeing her pop up in things. I am glad she is back in the game. I always really loved her look. Find the rest of the photos on Storm Trooper Fashion.
Happy belated birthday Naomi Campbell. She is one of my favorite models because she is beautiful, knows how to werk it, and constantly fights for more diversity in fashion! Photo from here.
Check out supermodel Jourdan Dunn in the December 2013 issue of Vogue. She was shot by Patrick Demarchelier. Since this is the holiday issue of Vogue, she aptly looks the part don’t you think? The plum eye makeup and the ruby nail polish adds to the holiday glam look, along with the David Morris jewels and Versace top. This is a very pleasant combination. I am already getting outfit ideas from this very picture! Photo spotted on Models of Color Tumblr.
Brazilian supermodel Gisele shines bright in this neutral look on the cover of French Vogue. The IMG model was shot by photographer duo Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Gisele looks very beautiful on this cover. This image has a vintage late 70s slash early 80s feel to it. The makeup is very natural, yet the smokey gives off a subtle sex appeal. Do you all see that hair?!?! The waves are gorgeous! She looks amazing! Photo from IMG Models.
This week’s Bad Bish is none other than Naomi Campbell and her MOTHER Valerie walking down the runway at the Thierry Mugler Spring/Summer 1994 fashion show. Now we know where her beauty comes from. Gif from Tumblr.
Look at this week’s Bad Bish Kate Moss in Stuart Weitzman Fall 2013 Ad Campaign. Can you believe the new fall ad campaigns are out now?! So surreal. I feel like I was just looking at spring’s ad campaigns. Anyway. Stuart Weitzman chose Kate Moss for a second season because she is a global icon whose street style influences tons of women. I can’t blame them. These photos are hot! Photos from Stuart Weitzman.
The Face mentor and supermodel Coco Rocha sings and dances in this new fashion film for Hunger Magazine while wearing Roberto Cavalli. She looks great, and who knew she could sing!?!?! We always knew she was a dancer, but what can’t this girl do? Bad Bish indeed.
The lovely people at Yuna Yang sent me some great behind the scenes photos from the Yuna Yang FW 2013 fashion show. They show the models having fun and the good stuff happening back stage. I also have some shots of the finale. This show was in a beautiful venue, and the clothes were gorgeous! Take a peek at the pics.
My sorority sister’s favorite comedic character Bon Qui Qui tried to get a job at the Alexander Wang flagship store in SoHo. New York’s fashion elite were not ready for what Bon Qui Qui had to offer. Check out cameos from Alessandra Ambrosio, A$AP Rocky, Shannan Click, Simon Doonan and Natasha Lyonne while dying of laughter. The video was done for the Spring 2013 T by Alexander Wang collection. Enjoy! 🙂
Sending congratulations to Fei Fei Sun for being the first solo Asian model to cover Vogue Italia. The cover was shot by Steven Meisel. He always shoots the Vogue Italia covers. Fei Fei Sun looks great in the pictures inspired by photographer Richard Avedon and 60s model China Machado. Photos from Models.com.
Kate Moss stars and looks gorgeous in the new Stuart Weitzman Spring 2013. The international campaign was shot by Mario Testino. “I had a great time shooting the Stuart Weitzman campaign and I’m so happy to be face of the brand this season,” said Kate Moss. “Working with Mario Testino is always fun and it was wonderful meeting Stuart on set.” Photos from Stuart Weitzman.
I found this picture of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss for the December 2012 issue of Interview Russia on Modelinia’s Tumblr page. I have seen other shots of the editorial featuring the two supermodels on other websites as well. If you want to see more, I would buy this particular issue of Interview Russia. Naomi and Kate look awesome. They seem to be aging very well. Don’t you think?
Look at Lea T modeling in the Phillip Plein show in Milan. She looks great post-op. Gender reassignment surgery can be a scary process. Lea T just happened to go through everything in the media, but I think she has handled herself well. Good for you! No judgements here. Photo from Fashionista.
If you are like me, you probably geeked all the way out when you saw the Spice Girls and the British Supermodels, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole, Stella Tennant, Lily Donaldson, Karen Elson, and David Gandy, hit the stage. I screamed so loud, you could probably hear me outside of the house. I sang and danced while the Spice Girls sang, and nearly fell out when the supermodels walked on the stage. I had a blast for all of the 2.5 seconds each group was on stage. Photos from Elle.
Sports Illustrated bikini model Kate Upton shows us that she does know how to model clothes in this month’s Vogue. I hope she gets more high fashion modeling gigs after this feature in Vogue. Photo from Refinery29.
