Another reason to love Natalia Vodianova. Behind that angel face is the heart of a warrior, determined to do as much as she can to help the children of the world through the power of her beauty. Here’s her new project, Bugaboo Red which helps pregnant women with HIV. “These days, if you don’t take a socially responsible position, you’re out of the club,” says Natalia. We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Lara Stone and David Walliams! We are so happy for Lara who got married this weekend in a gorgeous dress by Riccardo Tisci. Check out some pics of friends on British Vogue who include Tom Ford and Jefferson Hack.

In case you haven’t heard, Liya Kebede won a big award at Cannes for her role in Desert Flower.

Tyson Beckford interviewed by Forbes: looking older but still beautiful.

WWD catches up with Eileen Ford, who most certainly has quite a unique perspective on the modeling industry, having pretty much invented it.

Michelle Lee, casting director extraordinaire talks to WWD about the casting process and her favorite new faces of the season.

On a sombre note, Jezebel looks at the terribly sad trend of model suicides, in the wake of Noemie Lenoir‘s suicide attempt. Look for our upcoming special interview with a top model about this topic.

Take a look at Gisele when she started out. House of Models has 2 pics side by side of Gisele 15 years ago and Gisele now. Still drop dead gorgeous!

Remember the beautiful Gail Elliott from the 90s? Frockwriter reviews her Little Joe line which appeared for the first time at the Sydney shows.

The uniquely stunning Eve Salvail is interviewed by Ponyryder.

Check out these adorable new faces videos from Folio in Canada. Shows that simple is sometimes so much better.

Don’t all you models wish you had a fan like this?

“The perfect example of having a lot of money to spend but not knowing what to do with it.” OUCH!

Model Hildie G is one of Paul Rowland’s new fabulous faces for Ford. She may be the antithesis of what Eileen Ford would have liked.

Speaking of Ford, how cute is the new V Man/Ford Model contest winner, Michael Wozniak in this video by Ford?

For those who missed it the first time, here is Imogen Morris-Clarke‘s blog post about what all her model friends wanted to be when they grew up.

Ali Stephens talks about a cause near and dear to her heart, the oceans.

Oskar Tranum and Jakob Hybholt both up for top male Danish model (see pic); Jakob wins this year. Amanda Norgaard wins the women’s award. Congrats Jakob and Amanda! (Image courtesy of NY Models for Jakob)

Country Life

April 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Ben Toms takes models back to the days of hippies, with a 60s inspired story for Dazed and Confused. Amanda Norgaard, Douglas Neitzke and Kirill Vasilev lead a pack of beauties as they explore the a classic English garden, while wearing vintage style chapeaus and furs. The authentic look of the photos owes much to stylist Robbie Spencer‘s smart choices – who would have thought that Margiela could look so antique?

Hey, any chance to post pictures of modeling legend, Kristen McNemany, I will take it. This photo is the exact reason why Calvin Klein will always be relevant. The embrace of the legendary (Kristen) with a modern day beauty (Doutzen) shows how the brand will always keep you guessing.

——————————————————————————————————————

A BIG bits & Bytes: some news is old, some is new, catching people up from fashion week!

Modeling info:

Our incredible Wayne Sterling expounds on the meaning of walking the runways of today.

Craig Arend sits down with Storm’s Sarah Doukas who discovered a young 14 year old lass named Kate Moss.

Looking for the new Black “IT” girl are Elite Models and Essence Magazine.

Missy Rayder, naked and beautiful for V Magazine’s video.

Benetton‘s next campaign face.. it could be you!

Coco Rocha, we adore you! Here she talks, uncensored about the NY Times/Daily News “stories” on her being considered “fat”.

Speaking of Coco, Hilary Rhoda interviews Coco, on Fashion Week Daily.

Ponyryder had 3 stellar interviews with the wonderful Amanda Norgaard, Love magazine cover star Jeneil Williams and Prada opener and closer, Samantha Gradoville.

Arlenis Sosa for Latina Magazine at a party sponsored by Lancome (see pic below). Kind of a big deal as past covergirls have been Jennifer Lopez and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer. Arlenis talks about how black models need to stick together.

Male models should tremble. Zoolander 2 is in the works.

Another evil and unkind moment in the fashion industry. Frockwriter dissects the mess about Gemma Ward.

Photography:

How do you get started in fashion photography? Tips from the experts are right here.

For female photographers only, here is eye opening advice from A Photo Editor.

Fashionista talks to a Getty photographer.

Style.com shows that Trovata designer John Whitledge, takes a pretty mean picture as well… See his Fashion Week diary with Erin Wasson and Kirsten Dunst.

Fashion and miscellaneous:

LVMH-owned E Luxury is gone, only to be replaced by the Nowness. With that kind of backing, that website should be quite interesting.

One of our favorite casting directors, Daniel Peddle, was featured on the NY Times’ the Moment during Fashion Week (if you missed it!)

Also: if you missed from fashion week…. Incredible insights on Style.com from Cathy Horyn and Robert Duffy from Marc Jacobs on the state of the fashion industry.

Style.com‘s interview with Hedi Slimane. Does he go back to designing? Find out….

Vogue Italia, Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy. Yes, we wish they were one, but hey, at least the dialogue is starting. (The Cut via Jezebel).

Speaking of Vogue, Jezebel talks about how those cover lines are made up (edited out from the September issue). It’s pretty darn funny.

Fashion Week Daily has a deleted scene from the September Issue where Karl Lagerfeld separates us from them (my words not his). Another hilarous moment from Karl.

They got pictures of somebody — some asshole — I’ll never understand how editors and publishers think — showing just a famous person with blurbs all over their face. I’ll never understand why they think that would be something people would want to buy. I don’t get it.” Yes, we don’t get it either, George.
