OK, so it’s a little difficult to feel tons of sympathy for the genetically blessed amongst us. But everyone has their struggles in life and when you’re a person who is only known for their looks, sometimes people treat you like you don’t have any brains. Case in point: Cindy Crawford learned an awful lesson about judgment on her first day of college calculus. The supermodel received a scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University, but all her professor seemed to see when he looked at her was a pretty face. Watch this clip from “Oprah’s Master Class” as Cindy tells her sobering (and infuriating) story — and think twice before you assume someone is dumb just because she or he is attractive.

…they were normal teenage girls just like the rest of us! See all of the before and after pics at the link!
September is a big month for magazines — it’s traditionally when the largest (i.e. heaviest!) issues come out, packing in the most advertising pages and helping to pad the bankroll for the rest of the year. Vogue‘s September issue is so major that it even had a documentary made about it. Last year, Halle Berry graced the cover; so who is it this year? Why, it’s the Great Kate! Kate Moss dishes on her new nuptials to Kills frontman Jamie Hince. While, yes, she is a supermodel, it’s nice to see someone over the age of 22 on the cover of a major fashion magazine.

We should all be so lucky to age as gracefully as Carmen Dell’Orefice. Dell’Orefice started her modeling career when she covered Vogue in 1947. At 80, she’s still walking the runways. Most recently, she’s walked for John Galliano, Hermes and Alberta Ferretti. Dear Universe, this is how I want my life to play out. [HP] Keep reading »
“It was the most incredulous moment that you’d never want to happen … I couldn’t find [my teeth]! Did they fall into the soup? These things are so expensive they could feed a small village. I was like Lucille Ball on crack, diving under the table like a porpoise … Age sucks. And thank God my boyfriend wasn’t there.”
—Janice Dickinson, who we so wish would return for the next season on “America’s Next Top Model,” tells Page Six an amazing story about losing two false teeth while at a super shmancy restaurant in the Hamptons. In the end she found her teeth on the floor, washed them off, and popped them back her mouth. I dunno, I think her boyfriend—who is 24 years her junior—might have been amused. Maybe he would have sung a round of “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth?” [NY Post] Keep reading »
