Tyra Banks Critiques Tiny Hat Models

Professional models don’t get to choose what they model, but they do have to model through it no matter what. Even if what they’re contracted to wear happens to be a ridiculous tiny hat, say. “America’s Next Top Model” creator and host Tyra Banks knows this, and she frequently chastises her model-testants for not putting their all into their photos. We thought TyTy might have something to say to these tiny hat models, so we phoned her up to get her professional opinions on these tiny hat shots. First up, Erica, sporting this Kentucky Dainty Hair Clip ($15.99, Modcloth).

Tyra Says: I feel a sadness in your eyes that doesn’t connect me with the photo. More smizing, less dreckitude!

After the jump, Tyra critiques more tiny hat models. Keep reading »

A Close (And Sweet-Smelling) Shave

I consider shaving my legs a necessary summer evil, and to that end, I’ve tried to make it as quick and painless as possible. Enter Eos’ line of sweet-smelling, very effective shaving creams. Eos can be used either in the shower or dry–and it works like a charm, while smelling great to boot. I especially love the pomegranate-raspberry scent. Eos, if you’re listening, make some shower gel and after-shave moisturizer. I’ll definitely buy that, too.

Hermes Vans We Wish We Could Have

I saw images of these custom-made Hermes Vans yesterday and was practically dying. I don’t really wear flats, like, ever, but I might make an exception for these gorgeously patterned skate shoes, which were custom created by Vans for stylist Robert Verdi. The bright patterns and colors practically scream “I know how to have a laid back good time, dude.” Sadly, these slip-ons aren’t going to be massed produced–they were simply made after Verdi brought in some of his vintage Hermes scarves and had the Vans team re-create them in shoe form. But they are inspiring me to grab a paint brush and a pair of canvas tennis shoes and see what happens. Check out a couple other Verdi-special shoes after the jump! [Huh Magazine] Keep reading »

Do These Women Look Like Plus-Size Models To You?

Meet the new faces of “plus-sized” modeling. This week Ford Modeling Agency unveiled Ford+ Models, its new division of plus-sized models meant to turn the industry on its head. According to the agency, Ford+ models range in size from 8 to 18, and are an attempt to widen the playing field of what it means to be beautiful. After all, when models like Lara Stone (who is a size 4) are considered “too fat” to be real models, it’s clear that the modeling industry’s notions of beauty have grown very, very narrow. Said Gary Dakin, who’s running Ford’s plus division: “There are better clients, jobs, photographers, rates, etc.,” for plus-sized models. “The girls have evolved too … they are challenged now more than ever to be better and they challenge the industry right back.”

Except for one small thing: do any of these women look plus-sized to you? Keep reading »
