Carmen Carrera, you work it out girl. The trailblazing performer dresses to kill in an editorial for W magazine shot by Steven Meisel. For any fashionista, you know that’s a huge deal. Major kudos to the RuPaul’s Drag Race alum for scoring such a high-profile editorial.
Not only does she get to model for one of the greatest fashion photographers of all time, but she’s surrounded by a sea of gorgeous male models to boot. Several of which I’ve profiled in my Model Behavior feature. But out of all the studly guy she shares the camera with, the one I’m most jealous of is actually another female. Beyotch gets to pose with none other than Linda Evangelista. How insane is that? Check out her Carmen’s fashion spread below.
Simply effin’ amazing. Interview magazine gathered some of the most iconic names from the supermodel era to grace the cover of the publication’s model issue. The Trinity, better known individually as Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista, smolder on their respective covers. These three ruled the fashion industry during the 90s and are still as fierce today as they were during their hey day.
“When I started out modeling, there weren’t casting directors and there weren’t stylists, so you just dealt directly with the designer. We were all much closer back then.” – Naomi Campbell
Also receiving their own separate covers are Amber Valletta, Kate Moss and Stephanie Seymour. The only head-scratcher of the bunch is Ukranian-Canadian model Daria Werbowy. While definitely a stunner in her own right, it’s a bit odd she was chosen given she’s only 29-years-old while everyone else is 39 or older. Whatever the reason, props to Interview for bringing Naomi, Linda and Christy back on magazine covers where they belong. Check out the rest of the photos snapped by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott below.
Disney and Barney’s New York have just released a new video called “Electric Holiday” to get people (and cartoons) excited about holiday fashion.
As the video starts off, Minnie Mouse finds herself on a fashion adventure in Paris at a fashion show where she and all the other Disney characters will be walking the runway in Lanvin. They get their makeup done, but it’s Tinkerbell’s magic touch that turns these cute characters, into runway divas. Minnie and essentially becomes “Skinny Minnie“.
Watch as Minnie embarks on a fantastical fashion adventure in Paris, where she walks the runway in Lanvin and rubs elbows with the cartoon version of fashion-world figures like Linda Evangelista, Daphne Guinness, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga and many more. There are so many Disney characters in it too – either walking the runway, or in the audience like Cinderella‘s evil stepmother and step sisters, Drizella and Anastasia.
It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s Linda Evangelista. The 47-year-old supermodel appears in the September 2012 issue of W Magazine. Titled “Super Linda“, the fashion spread has Evangelista channeling her inner superhero. The shoot perfectly highlights her uncanny ability to change persona depending on the assignment. She truly is a chameleon and one of my favorite supermodels of all-time. Love that she’s back for this edgy editorial.
Snapped by famed photographer Steven Klein, the Canadian-born beauty dons thigh high boots, heavy duty capes and fantasy leather catsuits in an 18-page spread for the publication. Part Marvel Comics, part sex store catalogue, part Kill Bill promo. She’s the definition of “fierce” in all the pics. At times she looks like a haute couture cross between Michelle Pfeiffer circa Catwoman days and transgender icon Amanda Lepore. Edward Enninful was responsible for the wicked styling. Check out some of the photos below.
Once again, supermodel Linda Evangelista is making news for monetary issues. Back during the supermodel era of the 90s, Evangelista infamously said, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day“. That quote pretty much ignited the supermodel backlash and started the trend of actresses taking over models on magazine covers. I always loved Linda’s cocky attitude. Hell, I’d have it too if I was BFFs with Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington and the three of us ruled the fashion industry and beyond.
In the past few years, Linda seems to have mellowed after becoming a mother. She gave birth to her son Augustin four years ago. The identity of the father was unknown until Linda filed for child support at Manhattan Family Court. French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault who’s worth about $11.5 billion is Augustin’s baby daddy. Pinault is the CEO of PPR which owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent and other high-fashion brands.
The insanely gorgeous Naomi Campbell gets down and dirty in her latest editorial photo spread for Interview Magazine. Playing up to her bad girl image, Miss Naomi is seen slowly torturing a male model in the Russian Mafia-inspired shoot. I wonder if her real life Russian beau, Vladimir Doronon, loves the graphic pics.
Wearing six inch heels, Naomi is all kinds of fierce in this series, photographed by Marcus Piggot and Mert Alas. The leggy stunner looks amazing for 40-years old. To be perfectly honest, she looks the same she did back in the supermodel era in the 90s.
In the accompanying interview, the supermodel opens up about the difficulties she faced being a model of color early in her career. She also talks about her close friendships with fellow supermodels, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and current French First Lady, Carla Bruni.
“We were very supportive of one another, my group of girls, and I don’t think that happens so much nowadays. We were all doing shows in each country, working nonstop, but it didn’t matter, because we enjoyed being together. We would all have our rooms next to one another—it was like a dorm on tour,”
We as gay men go through life being asked this question “Are there ANY girls you find attractive? That you’d sleep with?” Well…YES! I have compiled MY LIST of 12 GHEEEEORGEOUS women who I would totally go straight for. Now this list is not to be confused with girls that I am obsessed with because I’m a gay like Britney Spears, Khloe Kardashian, Mariah Carey…I would rather be their GAY rather, than their STRAIGHT…does that make sense?
My list consists of people from ages 17 to 74. So keep an open mind, this is going to be a fun one!
