Watch The New Maybelline Spokesmodel’s Audition Tape!


She’s Brazilian (aren’t they all?), she’s gorgeous, and she’s Maybelline‘s newly minted spokesmodel. Meet Lisalla Montenegro, who, according to a company rep, “exudes a natural, fresh yet slightly feline beauty.” Well, good for her! And you’ve heard of model cards, right? Someone dug up this video, which must have landed on a bigwig-at-Maybelline’s desk, helping her to score this big break. It’s very, um, intimate. [Guanabee] Keep reading »

Shockingly, VS Angel Thinks She’d Make A Good Bond Girl

“I kind of see myself less as the girl riding a broomstick and holding a wand and more as a girl emerging from an explosion, with a gun.”

Victoria’s Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whitely on her response to rumors about her being featured in an American version of “Harry Potter.” We’re not surprised that she’d choose Bond over Potter, but we are skeptical of her reasoning. You sure it doesn’t have more to do with the wardrobe than the action, Rosie? Still, she may create a whole new acronym to replace MTA called MTAS: Model-Turned-Action-Star. Oh wait, Milla Jovovich and Rebecca Romijn did that already. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Photoshop Of Horrors: Lindsey Wixson

We’ve written about 15-year-old model Lindsey Wixson here before, and now her new ad campaign for Miu Miu, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, is floating its way around the fashion blogs. This shot in particular caught our eye. No doubt, Wixson is tall and skinny, but that leg? It looks either very, very skinny and very, very long, or it’s been weirdly tweaked by that magical body-morphing process known as Photoshop. These days, there’s a great deal of discussion over how thin is too thin in the modeling world, and why those in the magazine and advertising industries insist upon tweaking women’s bodies into unreal, unsightly proportions. It’s hard to tell if what’s going on here is a pair of coltish legs or a photo-manipulator gone wild. Either way, it looks … alien. Isn’t Wixson interesting-looking enough on her own?

Is This Model The Next Kate Moss?

Who can resist a good model Cinderella story? In 2007, the 5’9″ British boarding school student Jasmine Munting hopped on the tube and tried to avoid the stares of what she assumed was a creepy stranger. That intimidating person happened to be a Select Model Management Agent, and the rest is fashion ad campaign-making history. Munting, now 17, goes by the more model-y name of “Frida” (obvs!), and Vogue U.K. has named her a 2010 Model To Watch, an accolade that now supermodels Agy Deyn and Lily Donaldson once shared. And some industry insiders are predicting she’ll be the next Lily Cole (um, because she’s English as well?) or even skyrocket to Kate Moss-level stardom. We like her unique look and the fact that she’s still in school–apparently, she’s a really good student and has been on scholarship since the age of 11. Brains and beauty.

“America’s Next Top Model” Winner Lands Real Fashion Campaign

Fashion insiders (and savvy reality TV watchers) know that for all the delish ridiculosity that is “America’s Next Top Model,” most of these girls are never gonna make it in the real world of high fashion modeling. Ever notice how the winners are a far cry from your Sashas and Karlies and Stams of the actual fashion runways? Yeah, this is a make-believe-for-TV model sandwich. However, last season’s winner — the, ahem, slightly petite Nicole Fox, who some of you may remember as the “slow talker” from the shorty season — just broke through the chains that bind them! Alexander McQueen just chose her to be the face of his spring/summer 2011 collection, making her the first “ANTM” alum to land an international campaign and, well, to do some real-life, serious modeling. Judging from the latest McQueen ads involving lots of reptiles, he’ll come up with a challenge that makes Tyra’s antics look downright tame. [Houston Chronicle] Keep reading »

Oh, Nyoes! The Model Ezz Fallingz On Zee Covah!

Quick Vid: An 8-Year-Old Naomi Campbell Acts Out

Naomi Campbell wasn’t always a scary, BlackBerry-hurling diva-supermodel. She was actually adorable at one point. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Models Refused To Walk In Alexander McQueen Shoes

The Alexander McQueen shoe saga continues … apparently once a few models — including huge names like Sasha Pivovarova and Natasha Poly–saw the crazy heels, they turned down the opportunity to walk in his Paris show, afraid of potential runway catastrophes and/or serious injuries.

Are there any specific fashions that just freak you out? Where the thought of wearing that something brings images of pain, embarrassment, or disaster? A few off the top of our heads, besides McQueen’s armadillo shoes, of course: stripper heels, corset tops, white clothing that somehow becomes see-through in certain light, low-cut tops asking for nip-slips, jumpers that take forever to undo when you have to pee … [Frockwriter] Keep reading »
