Before the Coco Rochas and Chanel Imans of the modeling world, there were "The Big Six," a crop of supermodels who dominated all things hair, fashion, and makeup in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These days, actresses and pop stars often fill the positions left behind by these powerhouse models. So, let's take a trip down memory lane to see how much these six ladies have — and haven't — changed.
Never before have I witnessed the evolution of an it girl like with Cara Delevigne. Whether she is walking the catwalk, a red carpet or landing a fashion spread, cover or advert, this Chelsea born babe is has a passport to envy — not to mention a bank account. Now I find out that she has also landed a beauty campaign for Yves Saint Laurent's latest mascara launch. Yes, just say it...Cara for mascara — it's all just too perfect!
The mascara is called YSL Baby Doll and will be available from May 22nd nationwide.
Watch Cara applying the product in Paris along with her looking fabulous with her stunning friends in the one minute and ten second commercial here!
I might be pretty irked if I was a model. After all, celebrities seem to be taking over the top spots in fashion and beauty campaigns that formerly went to them. But after looking at these gorgeous women, it's no wonder they are scoring these amazing gigs. Aside from Cara Delevigne as the new face of Pepe Jeans and Kate Moss for Kerastase, we have Tilda Swinton landing a highly coveted spot as a Chanel model, and I hear she was hand picked by Karl himself, Alexa Chung for L'Oreal and rising American star from the show Girls, Allison Williams for Simple Skincare. Check out the deals they've scored and see some of the early released campaign photos here.
Congratulations are in order forBritain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon who has just been named Avon's newest brand ambassador. Alesha, who we typically see with long, dark hair that she often wears in a slick ponytail or topknot, has been recently posing for the cameras during auditions for the reality show with shorter hair which is styled either very curly or pin straight. Out of these three recent looks below, which hairstyle do you favour on Alesha?
On Friday evening, British model, actress and daughter of Gerry Hall and Mick Jagger, Georgia May Jagger celebrated her 21st birthday. Instead of having hum-drum drinks and cake, the beauty invited her fun and famous friends like Cara Delevingne (dressed as a big whoopie cushion) and Mark Ronson over to the Lounge Lover Club in Shoreditch for a fancy dress soiree that included biscuits in the shape of sawn-off fingers and zombie-themed cocktails by waiters dressed as bloodied surgeons. Clad in a skin-tight, white devilish-lizard painted catsuit, black velvet cape and diamante horns, Georgia May went all out for her big night. See some the sexy Instagram photos of her primping and walking in the snow here.
Kate Moss turns 39 today and to commemorate this British style and beauty icon's big day, I've gathered 39 of her most fabulous hair and makeup styles from over the years. Take a peek through this fun trip down memory lane and let me know which of her hair and makeup styles you like most!
Congratulations to Poppy Delevigne who has just been signed as the new face of Vero Moda and will be the model in their Spring/Summer 2013 campaign. Following in the footsteps of Alexa Chung, the former brand ambassador, Poppy seems like a lovely fit for the trendy Danish label. Watch as she discusses her favourite items from the line and then check out the full video campaign for the Spring/Summer here too!
Happy new year and happy 21st birthday to one of Britain's fastest rising stars Cara Delevigne. Born into a genetically gifted family where sister Poppy is also a model, Cara is currently the face of Burberry and she won this years Model of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards. Take a peek at 9 of her most unbelievable outfits and leave a comment letting me know which is your favourite at the end.
Just like the song says, "Isn't she lovely?" I sure think so, but you be the judge after looking at seven of the latest photos from the Spring/Summer 2013 DKNY featuring British model of the year Cara Delevigne. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, styled by Ludivine Poiblanc, makeup created by Fulvia Falrofi and hair done by Teddy Charles and Hugo Ferozzi, Cara was captured on the streets of New York City looking young, fresh and vibrant — just like the collection!
The trendy and wildly popular French High Street brand Maje announced early this morning that model, TV personality, British style icon of the year and one of London's hottest it girls, Alexa Chung, has been tapped as the face of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
The trendy and wildly popular French High Street brand Maje announced early this morning that model, TV personality, British style icon of the year and one of London's hottest it girls, Alexa Chung, has been tapped as the face of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Not only will Alexa model for the line, but she's also partnering with them on a project called, "Majed by Alexa Chung." Wow — all of a sudden they are a verb!
Through a competition on Facebook, three lucky winners from the UK, France and America will have the opportunity to fly to New York City and be styled (erm, "Majed") by Alexa for a photo shoot that will be shown in all Maje stores during Paris Fashion Week this coming February.
Sounds exciting and quite fun. Will you be entering the competition?
