France Bans Ultra-Thin Models And Pro-Anorexia Websites

Following in Spain, Italy and Israel’s footsteps, the French Parliament has passed a law that will ban the employment of models under a certain Body Mass Index (BMI) in an effort to discourage anorexia.

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,…

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.

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.

“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.

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?

Quotable: We Pity The Fools Who Call This Woman “Fat”

“People still tell me I’m fat, but when I look in the mirror, that’s not what I see.”Lara Stone, size four model, tells Vogue in their January issue. We shudder to think what kind of person would consider her overweight, much less say so. Someone who eats “crazy pills” instead of real food maybe? [Vogue]…

Georgia Jagger Is The “Model Of The Year”

Lara Stone was robbed! The term “Model of the Year” cracks me up and reminds me of that famous scene in “Zoolander” when Derek’s up against Hansel for the prize. But the truth is, the fashion industry takes this shiz for serious. While insiders would agree that Stone is clearly the obvious choice for ruling…

Helena Christensen Is Pro-Nudity Past 40

Could middle-aged women become the new ideal of female hotness? It would seem Helena Christensen thinks so, as the 40-year-old supermodel has been making moves to adjust image standards.

Quotable: Supermodel Told To Get A Boob Job

In the early days of my modeling career, I think the industry was uncomfortable with how strikingly different I was. For example, I was told to have a nose job and get my breasts done. But I suddenly got very stubborn and thought ‘Well, no. This is me,’ and suddenly I was being hailed as

Gemma’s Return: Why Even Announce “Retirement” If You Can’t Stick To It?

Random rant: why do celebs make such a big deal about announcing “retirement” only to un-retire months later? Publicity stunt? A heated “eff-you” move that reverses itself once they cool down?

Supermodel Gemma Ward, 22 (ahem), marks the latest in comebacks—or something to that effect. Her agency recently announced Ward’s official retirement after everyone…
