Kendall Jenner Looks Unrecognizable in Marc Jacobs Show

Makeup really can make all the difference - just as Kendall Jenner. Sporting bleached brows and a short, brown wig, it was easy to miss the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star in the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2014 show yesterday. "I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career. The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love …

Quote of the Day: Prabal Gurung on Runway Diversity

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014." - Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung addresses …

"I think the whole culture's screwed up... They retouch 20-year-olds. I work with them, and I see the pictures, and I know that they've retouched this and that and that and this. I just go, 'She doesn't even have any wrinkles!'" - Linda Rodin - a 65-year-old model, former stylist, and successful owner to an eponymous skincare line - points out the absurdity with retouching young models in fashion campaigns these days. (Make sure to …

Although Barneys was in hot water over racial profiling allegations several months ago, the high-end retailer is making strides in the LGBTQ community with their latest ad campaign, which features trans* models. The series - shot in black and white by famed photographer Bruce Weber - features 17 models (some professional models, while others are students, activists, and musicians) dressed in designer duds and situated among their family members. Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters," …

Categories: Models,

Claudia Schiffer didn't party during the 90s when she found fame. The 43-year-old model insists she was "innocent" and didn't really embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle like many other models did, and instead she chose to go home after fashion shows. "I didn't really go to the parties - I'd go home after the shows. A lot of bad things can happen at fashion parties, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. …

Somewhat following in the steps of UK retailer Debenhams, American Eagle has launched a campaign for their Aerie brand which sees models in all their non-Photoshopped beauty. Adding the tagline, "The girl in this photo has not been retouched. The real you is sexy. #aeriereal," to each of the images, the folks behind the Aerie Real lingerie collection are making their mark in the fight for body positivity. Fashion editor and style expert Jenny Altman …

With the horrid working conditions in the modeling world that still go unregulated, it's no wonder that models like Daria Werbowy decided to go on a hiatus. After taking time off to herself, the Canadian-bred beauty is returning to the industry. "I took a risk a couple of years ago where I decided to do the minimal amount that I could get away with, because I physically and mentally couldn’t handle it anymore," she told …

Kim Basinger has returned to her modeling roots and signed with IMG Models - the same agency with whom her 18-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin had just landed a contract earlier this year. "Kim has a powerful appeal on screen that will lend itself as a strong asset for us to seek innovative partnerships across the modeling and entertainment platform for Kim," said senior VP and managing director of IMG Models Ivan …

Items Du Jour: Britney Goes Platinum, Tyra’s War on “Plus-Size” Term

+ The Kardashian trio unveiled their latest clothing collection, which they launched in collaboration with British retailer Lipsy. Unsurprisingly, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe model off their floral, curve-hugging dresses in the adverts for the line (perhaps it's the only way they'd be able to sell it?). Major kudos that they're not of the typical sequined and glittery New Year's Eve dress fare, but at the same time, I can't imagine women flocking to the stores …
