Regardless of whether you love or hate Gigi Hadid & her group of social media-fueled modeling buddies, one thing is for sure, the group generates a lot of buzz for big-ticket brands. I don’t see social media dying a quick death anytime soon, so it’s a pretty good bet that, at least for now, the modeling industry will be crowded with chicks who are models mainly because of the number of followers they have on particular social media services or who they’re friends with on those services.
These latest photos were snapped last night as Gigi was seen leaving her NYC apartment. She wore a white top, with a fitted black middle and black boots.
Hailee Steinfeld is only 19, but she’s been around Hollywood for quite a number of years. Gods of Hollywood are trying really hard to hit a home run with Hailee, but I think they’ve struck out for the most part. Judging by early buzz, it appears Hailee will have some luck with her latest film “The Edge of Seventeen,” which hits theaters next month. The film also stars Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick. Hailee is currently making the promotional stops—and apparently no stop is small enough! The young actress made an appearance on Radio Station Y-100 yesterday in Fort Lauderdale, of all places.
Here’s more about the film:
The life of high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) is already awkward when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). Nadine now feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship with an awkward thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things might not be so terrible after all. The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s history teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board. [Source]
Mariah Carey and James Packer have called off their engagement, a rep for the singer confirmed to Entertainment Tonight. “Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since,” the statement read. “The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together. They are discussing it, and plan to release an official statement together about their future.”
According to a TMZ report, Mariah Carey and James Packer’s split stemmed from an incident that happened while they were vacationing on a yacht in Greece. A source told the website that Packer allegedly did “something really bad” involving Carey’s assistant that prompted her to ditch the yachting trip and head back to L.A.
It’s post like these that I’m sure pisses a lot of people off, so if you’re looking to air some of your daily stress, do so below in the comments section of this post.
Amber Rose recently got eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars,” so we’re trying to figure out how much she raked in from the gig. Any ideas?
Radar Online obtained paperwork from the reality show that reveals one celebrity was offered a base pay of $125,000 for participating in rehearsals, two weeks on the show (before the first elimination) and an appearance in the grand finale (in which all contestants, even those previously eliminated, perform). The letter also reportedly revealed celebrities who makes it past week two will receive money each week they stay in the competition, with a total of $345,000 up for grabs.
Rehearsals thru Week 2 = 125,000
+ 10K for Week 3
+ 15K for Week 4
+ 20K for Week 5
+ 25K for Week 6 (eliminated)
Total thru Week 6 = $195,000
So yeah, it looks like Amber blew the entire check and potentially more on the new ride.
Brit musician Matt Bellamy of the rock band Muse was seen hitting up L.A.’s latest celebrity-favorite restaurant Catch LA with his girlfriend Elle Evans. We’re sad to say this, but judging by the length of time Matt’s been with Elle, it appears he might be in love (God forbid). If Matt’s going to be dating Elle, he might as well hit the beach more often…

Here’s are all the attendees that caught our eye at the 4th Annual Save The Children Illumination Gala held last night at The Plaza Hotel in NYC. If we had to choose a favorite, it would have to be a toss up between Sara Sampaio and Bridgit Mendler, but that’s just our take. Have your say in the poll below:

Just in case you guys are into the new breed of social media models, here’s Hailey Baldwin & Bella Hadid working their respective styles as they catwalked around NYC last night. Bella had a couple wardrobe changes over the course of the evening, first in a see-through beige dress and then later in a black leather dress. Meanwhile, Hailey showed off a coat from the fall/winter section of her NYC-based closet. Again, doesn’t NYC have any social media-fueled models? It’s a real pity they have to fly in these LA-based models.
Actress Anna Kendrick is currently on a promo tour chatting about her latest film “The Accountant,” which released earlier this month. The film appears to be doing fairly well at the box-office thanks to its deep cast that includes Ben Affleck, J. K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgo. The 31-year-old was all smiles in a short printed dress on the set of ‘Extra’ on location at Universal Studios in Universal City. You can watch a clip of the interview on Extra’s website.
Unlike 98% of the models out there, Ashley Graham can actually hit up a breakfast joint and order normal food like pancakes, waffles, hash browns, full-egg omelettes, huevos rancheros (with all the sour cream, cheese, guac or whatever else comes with it), etc. The voluptuous S.I. swimsuit model worked her meat-friendly style as she was spotted grabbing breakfast with her husband Justin Ervin in Venice Beach yesterday afternoon.
