British model Cara Delevinge allegedly dropped a baggie of cocaine in front of paparazzi this weekend. (A model allegedly doing cocaine? Nooooooooooooo…. ) The UK’s Sun newspaper published pics of the beauty fumbling for her keys in front of her apartment and accidentally dropping a thin plastic baggie filled with a white substance on the ground. Blabbed a paparazzo to the Sun:

“She was really giggly. She found it hilarious but her friend was really edgy about it. Suddenly Cara dropped something and bent over to pick it up. Very discreetly, she just put her foot on it and then rolled her handbag across so it looked like she was just kind of bending over. The friend kept saying, ‘Can you stop taking pictures?’ The friend definitely realised they were in trouble once that little packet had dropped on the ground.”

The alleged cocaine pics are pretty damning for the 20-year-old, who has modeled for Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line, Lanvin, and Versace, and is the face of H&M’s Divided line. But hey, maybe she carries around baking soda everywhere to, uh, brush her teeth? One thing is for sure: She might be “the next Kate Moss” (in more ways than one), but she’s also a butterfingers. [The Sun UK, Fashionista] [Photo: Getty]

Yes, Blackface Is Still Offensive, Vogue Netherlands

You might have been sitting at your desk at work wondering to yourself, “Hmm, I wonder if it’s a good idea now for fashion magazines to hire Caucasian fashion models and smear their faces in blackface paint.” I am here now to put your mind at ease. No, it’s still not a good idea.  You got that, Vogue Netherlands?

The magazine’s May 2013 issue depicted light-skinned, Dutch model Querelle Jansen wearing a dark black face as she poses in homage to dancer Josephine Baker (right) and model/actress Grace Jones (left). (Both were inspirations to Marc Jacobs’ Louis Vuitton collections, fall 2008 and spring 2009 respectively.) Yet instead of hiring actual, you know, black models, the magazine used a white model in blackface.

Vogue realizes that actual black models do work in the fashion industry, right? It’s not like they are unicorns. [Clutch Magazine]

Oh, Ireland Baldwin, there you go winning the genetic lottery and all. Alec Baldwin‘s daughter signed to big-time modeling agency IMG just last month, which definitively makes the 17-year-old a fashion fixture to keep your eye on. Here she is at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares 10th Anniversary Celebration, where she rubbed elbows with the likes of Emmy Rossum, Chrissy Teigen, and Cyndi Lauper (and, um, Kelly Bensimon). This girl is so beautiful it’s almost stupid… and she’s six foot two. That is ridiculous. I fully, 100 percent stalk Ireland on all social media, and she seems like a really, really cool person. She handles all of her inevitable Twitter bullying like a serious champ. Plus she has a gorgeous boyfriend, whose name is Slater Trout, just in case you were wondering. I’m a little girl crush-y. Consider me on official Ireland Watch from here on out, okay? Slater Trout, too. Slater Trout.

*This is in reference to that infamous voicemail Alec Baldwin left for his then-11-year-old daughter, just FYI.

Ever wonder why the models stomping down the runway at Fashion Week look nothing like you? Like, you’re so much bigger that one of those girls could easily wear you as a skin suit?

Well, many of the models you see in Fashion Week, in print catalogs, and on billboards are actually teenage girls. Sure, there are models like Agyness Deyn, Kate Moss, and Kate Upton who are in their 20s and 30s, but a lot of the models we are exposed to as representative as adult women’s bodies are tall, skinny, 15-year-olds. The fashion industry’s reason for hiring these young women? It’s partly a worship of youth and partly the problem that barely-pubescent girls are the only ones who can fit into sample sizes.

  • Just in case you thought racism was over and solved forever, here’s model Chanel Iman talking about how the fashion industry is not immune to the “one is enough” idea when it comes to diversity. “A few times I got excused by designers who told me ‘we already found one black girl. We don’t need you anymore.’ I felt very discouraged. When someone tells you, ‘we don’t want you because we already have one of your kind, it’s really sad,” Iman told the UK’s Sunday Times Magazine. This is especially troubling given how magazines will book light-skinned models and put them in blackface instead of just hiring black models! [Clutch Magazine]

Watch Top Models Play Parisian Prostitutes In This Louis Vuitton Short Film

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don’t believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic.”) So I guess fashion was like, “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamorize with models and fancy clothes?,” and then they decided that prostitution would be perfect. Louis Vuitton’s latest short film (in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine) features top catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic, lingerie-inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually leads to the actual show, where they take to the runway in the same wares. I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline — clearly they are trying to say something — but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes! It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs and butts, so be wary should you work at, like, a church or something. [The Gloss]

nude modeling

The flash went off with a “pop” and the photographer patiently told me to loosen up. My hands were sweaty and my heart was beating a mile a minute. Trying my best to concentrate, I twisted into an elegant pose and took a deep breath to soften my expression. The resulting photograph was beautiful but the experience was terrifying.

I was 20-years-old when I first took my clothes off for money. While it might seem sordid, it wasn’t as bad as you might expect. A sophomore in college in New York, I was completely broke and my babysitting job wasn’t going to pay my rent for the summer while I interned. An old acquaintance — I’ll call her Tania — had been posting censored nude photos of herself on Facebook, and out of sheer curiosity I wrote her a message about it. She quickly replied and said that she had been making extra money “art modeling” for photographers. I was intrigued.

Kate Moss dons an admirable amount of hats: fashion model, Britain’s national treasure, style icon, wife, mum, dog owner, muse… Hell, she’s even dabbled in (adorably awkward) singing on a Babyshambles track. But Playboy cover model? That’s one I did not see coming. NowThis News claims to have gotten its hands on an internal memo from the publication that named Moss as the cover girl of its 60th anniversary issue, which would hit newsstands January of next year. Kate has posed in the nude countless times, but her jobs historically tend to skew artsy avant-garde rather than garish lad’s mag. According to the memo, she’s set to be shot for the editorial by legendary photog team Mert and Marcus, with W‘s Alex White as stylist, this week — and with a team like that, the results are likely to be much different from the magazine’s usual fare.

Though it’s not much more than a rumor right now, it’s certainly feasible, and I bet it would convince a whole new demographic to pick up Playboy on the newsstands for the very first time (duh, ladiez be lovin’ Kate Moss). I know I would — I buy every Kate cover. It’s an expensive habit. Seriously, do you know how many covers this girl gets? [Fashionista]
