The Beyoncé Experience

December 13th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

With the release of her top secret album superstar Beyoncé Knowles may have pulled off the musical coup of the year, but it’s the all star model lineup of her accompanying videos that caught our attention. The dream team of Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman accompany Bey on the clip for her song ‘Yonce’ and the end result is every bit as sexy as you’d expect. Joan, Jourdan and Chanel aren’t the only fashion stars featured; cameos from other catwalkers abound throughout the visual album – check out Shaun Ross and Diandra Forrest in the ‘Pretty Hurts’ segment as well.

Check out the moves on Jourdan, Joan & Chanel below and see previews of the entire experience on

Catching Up With Resort

June 9th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Have you been keeping up with Resort? This season’s array of wearable yet chic clothes is a cut above the usual. With newer designers like Erin Fetherston and Rag & Bone joining the resort resort regulars like ODLR and Donna Karan, the clothes have gotten younger, fresher and much more exciting; have a look at some of our favorite pieces from the season so far and tell us which resort looks you’re coveting!

Rag & Bone

Fur cardigan, combat boots and a minidress; the combination sounds odd on paper, but mixed together they look flawless on Tayane Leão. The color scheme is also completely in line with the warm palate of mustards, oranges and siennas we’ve been seeing at all the shows.


Marc Jacobs Resort

We can’t help but wonder if Jamie Bochert was Marc’s muse for resort; she brings to life his frilly cocktail dresses and ballerina skirts and proves that edgy and girly can exist in one outfit.


Erin Fetherston

Straw hats are becoming a theme for resort, they showed up at Jason Wu and here at Erin where she finds a way to make the kitschy style seem natural, by balancing it with the feminine blouse and sky high platforms seen on Emily Wake.


Anna Sui Resort

Anna knows boho, season after season she incorporates some version of the look into her collection and for resort offers up a host of beautiful pattered dresses. Naturally, Chanel Iman looks divine in all of them.



Adam offers up a different take on bohemian, considerably more grown up but still hippie. We love how this floral look on Natasa Vojnovic was paired with flat sandals, it just captures the ease of wear that resort is all about.


3.1 Phillip Lim

Phillip drew inspiration from Bianca Jagger for his sophisticated cruise looks, which means the retro glamour is taken up a notch. White hose aside, Kim Noorda looks pitch perfect in Lim’s intricate LBD accented with a cream colored blazer.

Met Mavens

May 4th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The red carpet of the Met’s Costume Institute Gala is always a scene for fashion moments and mishaps, the attendees either look incredible or completely regrettable but no matter what the outfits are memorable. This year was no exception with scores of actors, models and fashionistas turning up in their sartorial best, but who won the evening when it came to style? Did Chanel Iman’s Kors jumpsuit look refreshingly modern, or overly glittery? Was Doutzen’s Zac Posen a little too prom queen for you, or was the look perfectly sweet? Was Sasha’s beige Marni the bomb or a total bust? Tell us who you think looked the best, or the worst and take a look at the roundup of chic model looks.

Casting Coup

March 10th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Ajak and Lais.

Givenchy has spoken yet again and the invigorating casting choices for Fall/Winter 2010 are just as incredibly inspirational as ever for modelwatchers out there. With all the recent talk of more diversity on the runway, to fully see a a show where people of color are included (and not just 1 or 2 looks) makes for a runway that is compelling and powerful and yet somehow so natural and seamless. Givenchy led the week with 17 of their 49 looks on some of the most beautiful faces of color, past and present. The dramatic palette of red, black and white looked stunning on Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls, Rose Cordero, Lakshmi Menon, Liu Wen, Lyndsey Scott and Shu Pei. New faces Ajak, Jiang Xiao Yi, Lais Ribeiro, Ming Xi and Sosheeba Griffiths shined as well as current campaign face Eduardo Calero and Givenchy favorites Paolo Roldan and Jonathan Marquez. The surprise choices for the collection? Top Japanese model of the early 00’s (and newly platinum) Ai Tominaga and 90’s star Ling Tan.

Ming Xi and Paolo Rolden.
