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
Here’s the latest from Paris as we get ready for tomorrow’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. After doing the show for so many years, you’d think Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima would’ve called it quits by now, but that’s obviously not the case. Both ladies were in attendance at the photo call held at the Grand Palais in Paris. The fashion show will get filmed tomorrow evening at the famous Grand Palais and then air a few days later on CBS (December 5). Get more info here >>>
Here are our other favorites (and one or two who caught our attention for other reasons) from the 23rd Annual AmfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala during the Cannes Film Festival. The event was held at a fashionably star-studded event at the ultra-lux Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes.
If you zoom out a bit & consider all the beautiful attendees, people like Nina Agdal & Mischa Barton stand out like sore thumbs, but again, maybe they could use this crutch as an advantage. Most guys, if they have to choose between Adriana Lima or Nina Agdal—I feel like they’d find the latter far more approachable. As for Mischa Barton, I’m just shocked that she found a way into the event. Let’s hope her investment (and we’re pretty sure she paid a lot to get through the backdoor) paid off.
UPDATE:Apologies about thinking that Lily Donaldson was Elsa Hosk! Oops!
There must be a special feeling when you’re allowed to walk the exclusive red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival—especially if you’re an up & coming model! Bella Hadid experienced just that feeling or at least we think she did.
Last year we hadn’t even heard of this chick & now she’s pimping precious jewels to the rich & famous at Cannes? I guess that’s the power of network effects from various social media outlets—last year’s nameless/faceless models are today’s A-listers. There’s something wrong with that, but that’s for you guys to discuss in the comments.
Aside from Bella, current VS model Lily Donaldson & former VS model Doutzen Kroes also spiced things up on the red carpet. With that said, think carefully before voting for your favorite!

This is kind of a matchup between A-List models (as much A-List as you can get these days) vs B-Listers (or in other words, models/women we don’t hear about much), so choose your group wisely. The obvious benefit with the latter is the fact that you get an extra model. And for added effect, we’ll also do separate poll where you can choose your favorite from entire batch.
My winning guesses: Poll #1 will be Group B & Poll #2 will be Charlotte Wiggins. Prove me right, everyone!

I don’t think there’s a better event to hookup with a high-powered investment banker or simply a filthy rich person than attending the 2015 Wall Street Journal Magazine Innovator Awards. The event was held last night at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
Karlie’s already dating hedge fund manager Joshua Kushner, so let’s hope one of her friends, either Constance Jablonski or Lily Donaldson, struck the 5th Ave lottery!
Anyway, here’s more about the awards ceremony:
In 2012, the magazine launched its signature platform, The Innovator Awards. An extension of the November Innovators issue, the awards ceremony, held in New York City at Museum of Modern Art, honors visionaries across the fields of design, fashion, architecture, humanitarianism, art and technology.

It was pretty much your above-average King Sugar Daddy’s wildest fantasy—aside from the part where you have to give away money, of course. Picture it like this, you’re sitting inside a beautiful hall packed full scantily-clad, equally beautiful women and there are only a few ways to truly get noticed by one of these women:
1. Be a world famous actor
2. Be within Leonardo DiCaprio’s tightly-knit entourage
3. Or, when the time is most propitious, raise your hand to make a $10+ million donation in the fight against AIDS.
Apparently this year’s event raised around $30 million according to amfAR’s website:
The 22nd annual Cinema Against AIDS gala in Antibes, France, May 21, raised more than $30 million for amfAR’s AIDS research programs and the search for a cure. The undisputed highlight of the evening’s live auction, led by auctioneer Simon de Pury, was a stunning 18½ foot tall sculpture by Jeff Koons, titled Coloring Book. After a lively round of bidding, the work, part of Koons’s Celebration Series, sold for over $13 million.
It’s still unconfirmed which one of these supermodels went along with this aforementioned $13 million sculpture by Jeff Koons. Anyone want to take a wild guess?

Designer Karl Lagerfeld threw a luxuriously fashionable Chanel-sponsored party on a yacht at Chelsea Piers last night packed with supermodels, yuppy fashionistas & socialites, millionaire & potentially billionaire sugar daddies.
We should note that Emily Ratajkowski, Lily Donaldson and Kendall Jenner came alone (from what we can tell), while Gigi Hadid brought along her sister Bella Hadid & a few friends to the party.
So with that said, who would you have taken back to your Manhattan sweet-spot?
Here’s Lily Donaldson, Alexandra Richards, Clare Galterio, and Alise Shoemaker (left to right) glamming it up to hit up a glamorous gala in support of an initiative to protect one of our most precious resources, the ocean.
Lily Donaldson walked the runway at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This year’s show was held in London at Earl’s Court. Amongst this year’s performers were Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Hozier and Ed Sheeran. Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio each modeled a $2 million Dream Angels Fantasy Bra. The show airs on CBS on December 9. For complete coverage, visit VS All Access at Victoria’s Secret.
