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.

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?
