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!
Kendall Jenner covers Teen Vogue for their September issue, and she looks gorgeous. I love these images of her because they show what a great model she has become. The cover story is really great too. I think you all should read it. It gives you a little bit of insight into her life as an up and coming model. Check the story and few more photos here.
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.
Givenchy recently released their fall 2014 ad campaign and now Riccardo Tisci has the models dance in a new video for Givenchy. Kendall Jenner, Julia Nobis, Mariacarla Boscono,the Bryant Brothers, and Jamie Bochert dance to tunes by the Martinez Brothers. The collection is full of natural earth tones and neutrals with some animal print and jewel tones mixed in.
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.
Watch Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, or CCDD as I like to call her, style Joan Smalls for V Magazine. Joan Smalls is styled up by the infamous French stylist to look like Tina Turner for V Magazine’s September issue. CCDD is one of my favorite stylists and herx editorials and styling gigs are practically famous. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele is the one who styled Anna Wintor’s first Vogue cover after all. You know the one with the jeans and couture on it… Anyway. Get into the goodness of this video, and have a wonderful weekend!
My favorite September issue editorial so far has been Sessilee Lopez for Marie Claire Italia September 2013. It reminds me of those late 80s/early 90s fashion editorials, and Sessilee always has the best face and hair for an editorial throwback from that era. She looks amazing! I think I am going to be taking some serious style inspiration from this editorial starting with the spiral curls hanging out of the bowler hat! Photo info as well as the rest of the photos below!

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.
Malaika Firth was photographed by Steven Meisel for Prada’s new Fall/Winter 2013 ad campaign. Malaika Firth is the first black model to front an ad campaign for the Italian fashion house since Naomi Campbell was the face 19 years ago in 1994! Wow! This is a big honor. Prada usually only has one black model in each fashion show if that, so this is really big. Photo from Models of Color.
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.
This morning I was perusing The Fashion Bomb Daily and came across this beautiful picture of Iman at the 4th Annual AmFar Inspiration Gala. The supermodel looked absolutely gorgeous in a red Valentino gown. Whatever she is doing at her age to look that flawless, it is werking! Give us your secrets Iman!
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.
Even though the industry tries to act like we don’t exist, we in there! Thanks Tommy Ton for showing the world that black people love fashion too! [SOURCE]
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.
