Grossness: some douchebag anonymously mailed semi-nude modeling photos of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, elementary school special needs assistant Kaitlin Pearson to her employer and local newspaper. And now the 23-year-old’s side-career of modeling may cost her her job. Keep reading »
25-year-old Elly Mayday had a thriving career in Canada as a plus-size model, and it seemed like nothing could slow her down until last summer, when she started feeling ill. “I was told it was a cyst so many times,” she says, “and I just knew deep down in my heart that there was something else wrong.” Turns out Mayday had a rare, aggressive form of ovarian cancer. Treatment required a grueling chemotherapy regimen, surgery to remove the tumors, and a full hysterectomy. In the process, Mayday lost her hair and 40 pounds, but she didn’t lose her lust for life or her desire to model. She’s already back in front of the camera, looking strong and beautiful, despite her uncertain prognosis. She even insisted on fulfilling her modeling commitment with a lingerie company after her surgery, shooting an ad that proudly shows off her surgery scars. Check out the inspiring image after the jump. And Elly? We’re all pulling for you. Keep reading »
Welp, my vision board is going in the trash and this is going up in its place. [Instagram]
Do you ever sit around and wonder, Hmm, what’s Tyson Beckford up to? Me neither. But after I was reminded that he — not Michael Fassbender, not Clive Owen — is the most attractive man in the world after seeing these photos from OOB magazine in France, I may ask myself this more often. Here is Tyson posing with transgender model, Ines Rau, who, according to ColorLines, is a 24-year-old French model of North African descent. And, um, a stone-cold fox.
After the jump, check out the NSFW version of Ines and Tyson’s hawt photoshoot:

I wouldn’t be amiss in suggesting that Twiggy is the most iconic supermodel of all time. Before Kate, before Naomi, before Cindy, before Iman, there was Twiggy, the O.G. clothes hanger. We have her to thank for the “swinging sixties” aesthetic of long, coltish legs, wide, heavily lashed eyes, and teeny mod minidresses. Unlike most contemporary models, whose careers are all but fleeting (do they expire at 22?), Twiggy’s continuous influence has pervaded over the past four decades. And now, at 64, the better-than-ever Lesley Lawson is featured as the model for her own Twiggy for Marks & Spencer collection. The line for the British retailer is all about leather, both real and faux, and while we can’t attest to how well the pieces hold up in real life, we can say that they sure look good on Twiggy.

“I don’t understand it … I’m cool. I like going out. I like being at home, I like movies, I like eating. So what’s wrong with me? Why am I alone? … I’m looking for someone serious, who I can set up home with … Someone who comes from a warm, loving family like mine, who has values like mine…I’m very interested in going out with someone who is big and strong and famous … I see [Ryan Gosling and I could melt. He’s amazing. He’s my wow.”
-- Bar Refaeli laments her single status in an Israeli newspaper. The supermodel may not look like most of us, but she feels existentially lonely like we do. We've all been there -- trying to make sense of why we're still single, daring the universe to send someone, anyone worthwhile our way, fantasizing hardcore about Ryan Gosling. The only difference is that Bar seems to be confused about what feminism is. She is so relatable up until the the part of the interview where she says that she's "not at all a feminist" because she likes to do dishes and wants to be a stay-at-home mom. Guh. I think we need to get her, Farrah Abraham and Taylor Swift together for a little teaching session where we explain that you can do dishes and still be a feminist. [NY Daily News]
You might recognize Elliott Sailors from her days of modeling bikinis and evening gowns. At age 31, practically ancient in the world of fashion, Sailors’ gigs started to become more few and far between. So, she made a bold decision to save her career: to start modeling as a man. Sailors’ buzzed off her long, blonde hair and started showing up to castings with her breasts bound, wearing flannel shirts, ripped jeans, boots and biker jackets. And, as you might guess from this photo, it worked. Keep reading »
