Male Model Accused Of Offering Sex To Cops

It turns out that women aren’t the only ones who try to weasel their way out of a ticket. Nick Snider, who was Forbes’ 5th most successful male model in 2008, was arrested on Monday in Arkansas after drunkenly causing a domestic disturbance. Once in the patrol car (after he informed the arresting officers that he was “a very famous model”), Snider told one of the deputies, “If you stop I’ll suck your d**k and balls if you let me go.” As if this wasn’t bad enough, the Prada model continued to offer oral sex in exchange for his release to the booking jailer. Snider was charged with three misdemeanors, including attempting to illegally influence a public servant. Take it from the ladies, Nick: next time just start crying. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Fashion Meets Great Art

When Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers and artistic director Marc Jacobs sent models down the runway in garments inspired by Vienna’s early 20th century artists, we began to think about how visual arts movements have influenced designers. From the earliest Egyptian tomb paintings to Vermeer and Warhol, fashion has bowed to the brushstrokes of history’s great artists. Click through for your own inspiration.

In this facsimile from the tomb of Sennedjem, Egypt’s human subjects are clothed in white, draped dresses and surrounded by rich hues of gold. Work a slinky white number with plenty of gold and jewelry to channel a pharaoh all your own.

Skinny Model Scandal Hits Teen Girls Hard

Salinger would be pissed. It turns out the fashion industry may be responsible for sucking the innocence right out of teenage girls (or is causing them to throw it up). A new study shows that nine out of 10 teenage girls feel pressured to be thin thanks to the uber-emaciated models they see on the runways and advertisements. The majority of these girls would rather see untouched photos in magazines (wouldn’t we all?) and one-third of them have refused to eat in order to lose weight. More than 33 percent of these ladies knew someone who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder while more than one half have forced themselves to throw up food. Sad, sad, sad.

Lady Gaga’s Concert Costumes: Live, Raw Footage!

When I walked up to my family’s tree this past December 25th and saw Lady Gaga tickets clipped to its branches, I thought there had been a Christmas miracle. It turned out the miracle was my mother waiting on Ticketmaster’s busy line for 20 minutes before giving up and calling a ticket broker. Either way, the countdown for January 23rd began, and the Gaga made every moment of scratching off days on my calendar worth it. Besides the fact that the girl was really funny (she cursed up a storm and asked the audience to flash her several times) and her voice was amazing, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from her costumes. I knew the outfits would be fabulous, but she blew me away. Here’s a sartorial play-by-play of the show.

Let’s begin with this mirror-ball number. High-waisted white pants and a reflective bra would have been diva enough, but with the added shoulder accessory, she was in business.
