This will complete our posts from the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards, which went down last night before a packed house of A-list designers, supermodels, photographers & celebrities. It was just a very glitzy evening hosted by the always-hilarious Joel McHale. To get a taste of what unfolded, here’s a snippet of a review from CFDA’s webiste:
Joel McHale was on hand to host the ceremony, and the comedian didn’t pull any punches when it came to poking fun at the fashion industry – down to the food at the event, joking that this must be a very easy one for caterers as all anyone requests is sparkling water with parsley.
Some of the evening’s more endearing remarks came from Swarovski Award for Womenswear winner Brandon Maxwell. “I’m a slightly overweight boy from Texas, where my idea of a fine meal is something rolled into a ball and deep fried,” Maxwell said. “I was so nervous about putting on pants that weren’t elastic waist…and that there would be three forks at dinner and I would use the wrong one. But I’d like to thank my father who manages my business, and my mother, who always tells me I’m doing awesome even when I’m not.”
The Swarovski Award for Menswear went to Alex, Matthew and Samantha Orley of Orley. “Last year, we were seated in the last row of the balcony, so this is a nice change in perspective,” Matthew Orley offered. [Read more]
You can tell that Australian model Shanina Shaik learned a lot while dating male model Tyson Beckford. I remember she talked about all the girls who would throw themselves at Tyson while the couple were out on dates and that must have bothered her to an extent.
Enter DJ Ruckus.
I’m not knocking on the guy, but he’s certainly no Tyson Beckford and I can see a guy like him really appreciating a catch like Shanina Shaik. Maybe that’s why Shanina decided to pull the trigger on the engagement? The couple looked happy as they were spotted going on a stroll with her dog in Miami Beach earlier today. The leggy 25-year-old beauty was wearing a head wrap, a white tee shirt with dangerously short-shorts coupled with gladiator sandals that further highlighted her amazing legs.
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMNNNNNNN YOUUUUUUUUUUUU, DJ RUCKUS!!!
Ale is slowly turning into a bona fide Coachella staple. The 35-year-old Brazilian model is consistently one of the sexiest celebs in attendance and for the past couple years, Ale’s been bringing along her supermodel friends. Surprisingly, her longtime fiance Jamie Mazur was even there, but I’m sure it’s a little awkward for him considering Ale’s wearing next to nothing and 99% of dudes standing around would love to steal her away from him. Unlike most of the chicks at Coachella, Alessandra Ambrosio actually looks like somebody who attends to enjoy the music!
Also in attendance was Miranda Kerr with her billionaire boyfriend & Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel (he’s rocking the bandana over his face). As we’ve come to expect, Miranda was looking like a million bucks.

The Australian beauty was seen on the set of a photo shoot at Villa Vizcaya in Miami. The 24-year-old beauty was seen posing, first in a white relaxed fit dress and then a black dress during the morning shoot.
For those of you sugar daddies who were looking to get your hands on Shanina, you’ll have to exercise some patience. It was recently revealed that Shanina got engaged to DJ Ruckus. She seemed to have move very quickly following her breakup with Tyson Beckford.

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
Shanina Shaik was spotted talking on the phone in Miami. Shanina was accompanied by DJ Ruckus. Like most others, she’s likely in town for Art Basel. Shanina once again walked the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Aussie-flavored Shanina Shaik showed off her stunning bikini body during a photo shoot in Miami. The 24 year old beauty wore several bikini’s, a shirt dress and a jumpsuit during the beach shoot. Shanina worked for Victoria’s Secret and Bonds and graced catwalks and magazine covers across the world. She’s currently dating DJ Rukus.
Australian model Shanina Shaik seems to be doing just fine following her breakup with Tyson Beckford earlier this year (he was caught cheating on her—that bastard!).
The beautiful 24-year-old model from Melbourne was seen catwalking around with a male friend while vacationing in Ibiza. We’re going to assume that’s not her new boyfriend, but if he is, rack one up for Team Average-Looking & Filthy-Rich.
Here’s a interview with Shanina just months her breakup. She speaks very candidly about her relationship…

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?

From a standpoint of sexiness, Rihanna’s private Met Gala after party held at Up & Down was literally amazing and we sincerely apologize for getting these up so late.
Now, unlike Rihanna who decided to walk around pretty much topless the entire night, most of her beautiful guests were more mindful of potential wardrobe malfunctions (unfortunately). We hope you guys dig the photos.
