It’s interesting that Kendall Jenner was missing from the fashion show, but I guess Tommy Hilfiger wanted to have Gigi Hadid as the center of attention. Tommy Hilfiger and company setup camp on a small strip of Venice Beach and called it TommyLand. The designer hired a bunch of models and showcased their Spring, 2017 collection on the beach.
The production reminded me of a something VS would do, so it’s possible the Tommy Hilfiger is trying another promotional strategy to generate extra buzz. Not to knock on Gigi Hadid, but Tommy’s marketing department could’ve gotten a more A-list model to headline the show. Gigi’s great, but she’s far from a showstopper! I don’t care how many followers she has on Instagram!

Oops–we forgot about Stella Maxwell, so we’re giving her the red carpet treatment:

If happened to be rich, beautiful or famous (or a healthy combination of those three) last night in London, you were probably in attendance at the 2016 British Fashion Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For an endless stream of photos of attendees, as well as the list of last night’s big winners, check the award show’s official website for more.
As if her head wasn’t already getting big with all her modeling success over the past year, Gigi Hadid took home the coveted International Model award (i.e. “A male or female model that has contributed most to the international fashion scene in the past year and has demonstrated influence beyond the catwalk.”). And, I’m not sure what this says about the award show’s credibility, but Jaden & Willow Smith won in the “New Fashion Icon” category—riiiiiight. I think it’s safe to say that Will Smith will be mailing a big check to someone at the award show in the coming days.
We would hate to simply gloss over Jared Leto’s stylish appearance without mention. Hey, when you get as many ladies at Jared Leto, he could be dressed up as a clown and he’d still leave with models clinging to him… Photo Credit: FameFlynet Pictures; Jared Leto

I think it’s safe to say that this event was far from Joan Smalls‘s proudest moment of her modeling career, but hey, since it pays the bills, I don’t think she was complaining too much when she cashed the check. The beautiful 28-year-old Puerto Rican model appeared alongside Hailey Baldwin at the Karl Lagerfeld launch held yesterday at Lord & Taylor in NYC. At least she didn’t have to appear with Kendall Jenner and risk being over-shadowed by a reality TV star.
The beautiful and always-sexy Joan Smalls rocked a stylish black sweatshirt and a simple pair of skinny jeans as she was seen out & about Soho yesterday afternoon. When you can cameras pointed in your direction even when wearing a sweatshirt, you know you’re a great model! OW!

Believe it or not, but aside from Irina Shayk, there were a few other models who caught our eye at the Intimissimi’s fashion show event held in beautiful Verona, Italy. The luxury lingerie brand hosted a glitzy, winter-themed event, which featured classical singer Andrea Bocelli, to showcase their latest line of lingerie.

Supermodels Doutzen Kroes & Joan Smalls celebrated the first day of New York Fashion Week with ultra-sexy outfits that highlighted their freakishly toned midriffs. Major props to both ladies. As for reality TV diva Kylie Jenner, she was doing her best to look more professional (as opposed to the usual hipster prostitute look) as she attended a Kendall & Kylie Pop-Up launch event held at Samsung 837 in the Meatpacking District.
Here’s the interview during which the sisters discuss their latest collection. When asked about their source of the inspiration, Kendall conveniently replied, “The inspiration is us.” Riiight.

I read a number of articles about Bennet Omalu, the physician who first discovered the existence of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) after examining the brains of several deceased NFL players and and knew instantly that they’d turn the story into a film! Lo and behold, we have none other than Will Smith playing the role of Dr. Omalu (he even does the Nigerian accent!) in what appears to be a great film set to score a number of Oscar nominations (Will Smith is already getting Best Actor nods).
So yeah, for those of you looking to avoid “Star Wars” this holiday season, make sure you check out either “Concussion,” “The Big Short,” or “Joy”— all three seem like nice way to spend a couple hours.
More about the film, followed by the trailer:
Set in 2005, the movie is a dramatic storytelling depiction of Bennet Omalu’s race against time to publicize CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) in American football players and games and the attempts by the NFL to deny the problem and to disparage the doctor. Source

Here are Joan Smalls, Jarah Mariano, Victoria Justice at the 2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala New York at Spring Studios. Miley Cyrus and Andy Cohen were recognized for their work in the fight against AIDS. The Inspiration Gala included a runway show, awards presentation and performance by Mary J Blige. amFAR is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the support of AIDS research and HIV prevention and education.
Unlike most film festivals, when it comes to the Cannes Film Festival, elite supermodels are pretty much a staple, whether it’s the world-famous red carpet at a premiere or one of the ultra-luxurious evening parties following the premieres. High-end designers & jewellers are typically the ones who foot the bill when it comes to parties. Chopard enjoyed its time in the spotlight over the weekend and last night was Swiss jeweller De Grisogono’s chance to sparkle.
