Alright, so it’s probably not the best outfit for klutzes, but how chic is this white-on-white-on-white look on model Karolina Kurkova? I am a huge fan of the monochromatic thing, for starters, but I love the subtle accent her red lips, black shades, silver bag and sweeeeeeeeeeeeet two-toned oxfords add. Yes, white stains easily, but you can also bleach that shit. I betcha Karolina has a bleach pen in her purse, and if she doesn’t, she should. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
If you’ve seen “The Face,” then you already know that former Victoria’s Secret Angel Karolina Kurkova is, like, the coolest. (Naomi Campbell, on the other hand? Not the coolest. But she’s Naomi Campbell, so there’s that.) The model and mom seems ridiculously down-to-earth and relatable, aside from being, you know, one of the most famous faces in the world. Oh, and she doesn’t have a bellybutton. Anyway! I loooove this casual-meets-chic look, and although some of these pieces are pretty unique, it’s easy to recreate a similar look on the cheap. I’ll show you how… Keep reading »
The Tribeca Film Festival began with a bang last night with its star-studded Vanity Fair kick-off gala. Countless familiar New York City names were spotted at the annual event, from the festival’s founder Robert De Niro to “socialite” and headband-wearer Arden Wohl. This is New York City, after all, so naturally many of the partygoers were in head-to-toe black looks. Adorably preggers Evan Rachel Wood was radiant in a flattering black halter dress, and Sienna Miller looked rad in a short black-on-black floral frock that showcased her killer shoes. Both Karolina Kurkova and Rachel Roy chose pantsuit looks for the occasion, and Whoopi Goldberg looked like the awesomest good witch/cool aunt ever in her trademark Cool Flowy Black Thing. (I love Whoopi.) So! Who do you think wore black better at the Vanity Fair party? It’s a tough call, right?
Did you watch modeling competition “The Face”? I have a couple of episodes to catch up on — so don’t tell me who won! — but it’s so much fun to watch — mainly because Naomi Campbell is a bit batcrackers, and fellow judges/coaches Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova play such good straight women to Campbell’s attendant rage problems. Anyway! I like this layered look from Kurkova. She’s channeling a bit of a witchy vibe, especially with those what-look-like Rick Owens boots and brimmed hat. Best of all, despite her being a supermodel, I feel like regular ladies could pull of this look, too. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
Have you been watching “The Face”? If not, check it out. It’s a modeling competition, yes, but unlike any others out there. Each contestant is paired with a mentor — Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha or Naomi Campbell — and competes against models on the other mentor’s teams. The challenges are real world and the products, stylists and brands the girls work with are first rate, unlike some (ahem) other, jankier reality TV model competitions.
So far in the season, the group of 12 girls has been whittled down to six — Stephanie, Margaux, Jocelyn, Zi Lin, Ebony and Devyn. The Frisky was lucky enough to speak with Jocelyn of Team Naomi, Stephanie of Team Coco and Ebony of Team Karolina, and while they wouldn’t answer questions about Naomi’s temper tantrums, (which really says it all, eh?), they did give us the scoop on challenges, eliminations — and what Nigel Barker really smells like.
And don’t forget to catch “The Face,” Tuesday nights at 9/8 c on Oxygen.

If you, like us, have been feeling like the latter seasons of “America’s Next Top Model” have been a little gimmicky and lackluster, well, we’ve got a new show for you — one with three times the Tyra Banks star power. “The Face” is a modeling competition show, but unlike “ANTM,” the models will be split into teams, coached and trained by supermodels Naomi Campbell, Coca Rocha or Karolina Kurkova. Plus, it’s hosted by Noted Fashion Photographer (and baby seal enthusiast) Nigel Barker, so what’s not to love? In any case, Naomi, Nigel and the gang premiere tonight at 10/9 c on Oxygen. We’ll be watching/gawking.
