Bar Refaeli Is Just Like All Of Us: Lonely, Single & Obsessed With Ryan Gosling

Bar Raefali doesn't understand why she's single

“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]

Struggling Female Model Finds Success When She Starts Modeling As A Man

Failed Female Model Finds Success When She Starts Modeling As A Man

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 »

Male Model Shane Lapper Retires, Relaunches Career As Female Model Chloe Lapper

Male Model Shane Lapper Retires, Relaunches Career As Female Model Chloe Lapper

Scouted in London at the age of 22, handsome redhead Shane Lapper launched a successful career as a male model*. And even though Lapper was employed as an aspirational standard of male beauty, he always felt something wasn’t right: “I think I was about seven when I realized I should have been born a girl. I have five sisters, and I’d watch them all dress up and put on make up and I’d be so jealous.”

As Lapper’s career took off, his suspicions that he was in “the wrong body” only intensified: “It just felt wrong.”

And so, Shane the male model became Chloe. Read more on The Gloss…

Halloween Inspiration Board: Model Cara Delevigne

Halloween Inspiration Board: Model Cara Delevigne

If you pay any attention at all to the fashion industry or have picked up a fashion magazine in the last year, chances are good you at least recognize this face: Cara Delevigne is arguably the hottest up-and-coming model in years, thanks to her trademark heavy brows, wacky facial expressions, edgy street style and, uh, history of dropping bags of cocaine in public. And dressing up as Cara for Halloween turns out to be totally easy. Snag her (exact, I believe) Bart Simpson two-piece ensemble on eBay, plop on a red beanie and combat boots, sling a personalized backpack over your shoulder and make as many weird faces are you can think of all night (here are a few to inspire you). Oh yeah, and fill a small baggy with powdered sugar to act as your faux cocaine — seriously, don’t be all method and use the real stuff. As Cara knows all too well, that spells trouble. Full deets for this costume after the jump! Keep reading »

Cristy Nicole Deweese Is A Dallas High School Spanish Teacher And A Former Nude Playboy Model

cristy nicole deweese posed for playboy

I’m dying to know whether it was a student or a parent who discovered Dallas high school Spanish teacher Cristy Nicole Deweese had also posed nude for Playboy and Playboy.com. Because reporting that to the authorities was probably an awkward conversation.

Deweese, 21, posed naked three years ago as a “Coed Of The Month” for Playboy as well as on Playboy.com as a cybergirl.” Today she teaches Spanish at Townview Magnet High School in Dallas, Texas.

I don’t think it should matter whether teachers have worked as strippers or escorts, posed topless or appeared in porn in the past. If my hypothetical kid’s teacher is a gifted and hard-working educator, that is what’s important to me. As long as teachers conduct themselves professionally and keep their past careers out of the classroom, it should be a nonissue. Keep reading »

A Touching Letter From The Mother Of Down Syndrome Wet Seal Model Karrie Brown

A Touching Letter From The Mother Of Down Syndrome Wet Seal Model Karrie Brown

Karrie Brown, the Wet Seal model with Down syndrome, was featured as our Kickass Woman of the Day a couple weeks ago. Now it’s time to make room for another kickass woman: Karrie’s mom. Sue Brown of Illinois penned an article on the experience for xoJane, in which she details not only how her 17-year-old daughter’s modeling opportunity came about, but most importantly, and most poignantly, how she raised Karrie to know that one must never place limits on themselves. Upon receiving the prenatal diagnosis that her baby had Down syndrome, Sue’s own mother told her, “Your baby might have a disability, but she will only be disabled if you make her that way.” What follows is one of the most inspirational stories we’ve ever seen, made all the better by Sue’s, and Karrie’s, phenomenal attitude.

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Karrie Brown, 17-Year-Old With Down Syndrome, Models For Wet Seal

Watch your back, ladies and gents of “America’s Next Top Model.” Teen clothing retailer Wet Seal recently shot a photoshoot with 17-year-old model Karrie Brown that is getting a lot of eyeballs. How come? Karrie isn’t just any high school junior who loves modeling — she also has Down Syndrome.

The “Today” show blog spoke with Karrie’s mother Sue Brown, who explained she photographed her daughter modeling a favorite outfit from Wet Seal and posted it on Facebook. Folks started tweeting at Wet Seal, asking if Karrie could model their clothes professionally. To everyone’s surprise, the company actually responded! Wet Seal reached out to Sue and promised if her Facebook page got 10,000 likes, they would have a special surprise for Karrie.   Keep reading »

Do You Recognize Lindsay Lohan’s Child Modeling Pal?

Vintage Lohan always makes me a little sad: she was such a cutie before all the cocaine and lip injectables. Her fellow child model was harder to place. It took a minute to recognize her, but once I did, it made total sense these two traveled in the same child modeling circles back in the day. Although their futures turned out very differently … [Instagram]

Model Inner Monologue: Dude, Where’s My Bra?

Model Inner Monologue: Dude, Where's My Bra?

Many fashion week runway shows are based on some kind of abstract concept or even a dream the designer had. Sophie Theallet’s runway show seems to be based on a recurring dream of mine where I go out in public in a sheer shirt and forget to wear a bra. Oops!
