Anwar Hadid sews his own clothes to keep his personal style unique to him.

The 20-year-old, who is the face of Valentino’s new Born in Roma Uomo fragrance, revealed he wanted to be a designer before he became a model and still puts his skills into practice to keep his style unique.

“I sew my own clothes. I’ve always loved all different types,” Anwar told People magazine. “I like to express myself in whatever I feel suits my energy at that point. I just kind of do whatever makes me happy. Everyone is allowed to express themselves freely.

“I learned a lot about design through modelling. I wanted to be a designer in 2014 before I wrote music or modelled or anything like that. I have a project coming out in the next couple of months with shirts, which is exciting.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Anwar revealed the advice he got from his big sisters, models Gigi and Bella, when he started out in the industry.

“Try to be yourself and be confident and comfortable. Also, wear the clothes and don’t let them wear you. For modelling, you’re an extension of someone else’s creation and vision. You have to honour that,” he explained.

While his career begins to skyrocket, Anwar makes sure he takes time out to relax.

“I use essential oils. I put some in my hand (and smell it) or in a diffuser. That’s something I like to do every day. I’m really drawn to eucalyptus and lavender,” he said, before adding that he deals with fame by surrounding himself with family and friends.

“Honestly, I feel like I’m still the same person that I’ve been since I was young,” he insisted.

Dua Lipa: ‘My mum never let me pluck my eyebrows’

Dua Lipa’s mother refused to let the singer pluck her eyebrows while growing up.

The Grammy-winning singer is well-known for her flawless skin, sleek bob and stylish red carpet looks, but it’s her perfect eyebrows that are coveted by her fans and followers on social media.

In a new interview with Elle.com, the 24-year-old confessed that it was her mother who prevented her from going anywhere near her bushy brows.

“They come from my dad’s side of the family, plus my mum never let me pluck them – even when they were growing to my eyelids!” Dua laughed, as she revealed that when she looks in the mirror, she sees “good brows”.

The British singer, who is currently dating model Anwar Hadid, blames her hectic schedule on being an early riser, and starts the day with a shower, then applies a cream cleanser, vitamin-B serum, hydrating cream and SPF to her face.

“I never used to be into skincare but now I travel, I have to,” Dua shared.

The Be The One hitmaker isn’t a fan of make-up and tries to avoid wearing it if she can.

“I try not to wear make-up on days I don’t have to, but if I do, it takes 15 minutes max. I stick to foundation or concealer, mascara, eyeshadow and bronzer and then I’m out the door,” she said of her simple routine.

At the end of the day, Dua uses Pai Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil, $45 (£36), to remove her make-up, followed by a probiotic serum and face cream.

The singer also swears by natural beauty products from Credo and indulges in facials at London clinic Pfeffer Sal, with prices starting at $163 (£130).

Kendall Jenner debuts blonde hair on Burberry spring 2020 runway

Kendall Jenner showed off a new blonde look at Burberry’s London Fashion Week presentation on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who regularly takes breaks from the catwalk, skipped New York Fashion Week earlier this month and made her spring 2020 debut with a surprise appearance at Riccardo Tisci’s presentation, held at the Troubadour White City Theatre.

The reality TV star opened the show wearing a cream jacket emblazoned with a “Burberry England” logo and black skirt with fringed hemline, but it was her new bleached blonde locks that caught attention.

Kendall also showed off her new, lighter tresses, which were dyed by celebrity hairstylist Guido Palau, by filming a short Instagram Stories video in her car and posting a picture of her with Tisci and fellow Burberry models Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Agyness Deyn backstage at the show. She was also seen rocking her new look at a Tyler, the Creator gig later that night.

The model, who is known for her signature dark hair, has gone light before – she previously dyed her hair platinum blonde to walk the runway for Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show in March 2016.

Kendall’s inclusion in the Burberry spectacle comes shortly after she admitted to Vogue that she missed strutting her stuff on the runways while perched front row during New York Fashion Week.

“Today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk,'” she said, before teasing that she would be returning soon.

Celebrities including Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa, Anwar Hadid, and FKA Twigs looked on as models presented Tisci’s Evolution collection, inspired by the Victorian era in which Burberry was founded. The line featured fitted waists, elaborate sleeves and scarves, streetwear, and a new take on the classic trench coat.

Model-turned-actress Deyn, who returned to the runway for the first time since 2015, wore the classic beige trench adorned with jewelled embellishments, an oversized striped shirt, and pale pink tailored trousers, while Shayk sported pale purple trousers, a blouse, and a large printed silk scarf.

Marc Jacobs serves up joyful spectacle for spring 2020

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.

Anwar Hadid: ‘My dad is my style inspiration’

Anwar Hadid has named his father as his main source of style inspiration.

The 20-year-old counts models Gigi and Bella Hadid as his big sisters, and their mother is former model and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Hadid.

But Anwar confessed in an interview with Into The Gloss that it is his real estate developer father, Mohamed Hadid, who is his real fashion icon.

“He’s my style inspiration – not because our styles are similar, but because he’s always fresh. He’s put together every morning, almost like he wakes up like that – shaved face, smells good, looks clean. It seems effortless, but it can’t be, because for me it’s impossible,” he shared.

The model also explained that he gets agitated during photoshoots as his skin always breaks out after having heavy make-up on his face.

“I’ll ask literally anyone for skin tips. My biggest issue is that I get my make-up done for shoots, and I always break out from that. After a shoot, I’m running home to wash my face. I’d like to figure out what it is, but I guess some things just make my skin irritated,” Anwar stated.

The youngest Hadid sibling, who recently began dating British singer Dua Lipa, has a low maintenance skincare regime. Yet, even he has had one very memorable beauty fail.

“I’m not particular about my hair, but the one thing I wouldn’t do again was shave it all off. I did it with a disposable BIC razor, and I was really bald. It looked so ugly, but at least now I know,” he laughed.

Adut Akech is “beyond thrilled” to be starring in her first-ever fragrance campaign.

The model, who was born in South Sudan and raised in Adelaide, Australia, made her runway debut for Saint Laurent’s spring/summer 2017 show in September 2016 and has since gone on to walk for the likes of Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, and Kenzo.

She has now been tapped to be the face of Valentino’s new fragrance, Born in Roma, alongside Anwar Hadid, and she told her followers on Instagram that she was very excited about the gig.

“I am so beyond thrilled and overjoyed to be sharing my first ever fragrance campaign for @maisonvalentino #BORNINROMA with @anwarhadid,” she wrote in the caption. “These BEAUTIFUL images shot for the campaign by the one and only @inezandvinoodh.”

The 19-year-old shared some of the campaign imagery, which was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli and shows her wearing a strapless pink gown in various locations in Rome, Italy.

Fellow model Naomi Campbell gave her support by posting heart emojis in the comments, while Anwar’s sister Gigi Hadid uploaded a campaign photo, which showed Adut resting her head on her brother’s shoulder, on her Instagram Stories and wrote “LOVE!!!!!”

The Instagram account for the Italian fashion house shared footage of the video campaign as well as images of the bottles, with the women’s fragrance, which is available in stories now, appearing in a transparent bottle with pink liquid, and the men’s scent, which will reach stores in October, to be contained in an all-black bottle.

Valentino teamed up with L’Oreal to host the Born in Roma ball in Paris last week to celebrate the launch of the new fragrance with Adut and 20-year-old Anwar.

Kendall Jenner has described herself as a “love at first sight” kind of person.

The model made the comments during a candid interview for her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s new lifestyle website, Poosh, and confessed that she knows whether she’s interested in someone romantically as soon as she meets them.

“I am very much someone who, I am love at first sight type of person,” she stated. “I know I am gonna fall in love with you the second that I meet you.”

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star elaborated on the feeling, and insisted that it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, she just goes with it because she knows it’s right.

“I have this overwhelming feeling. And that doesn’t happen a lot for me,” the 23-year-old reflected. “I am not the kind of person who can gradually fall in love with someone. I don’t understand that. I’m a really straightforward person.”

Kendall also went on to joke that, for her, the feeling of falling in love is the same as when she discovered her other two passions in life: modelling and horse riding.

Back in February (19), the brunette beauty confirmed she had been dating Philadelphia 76ers basketball star Ben Simmons, 22, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

When asked about how long the pair had been involved with one another, she coyly responded, “For a bit now.”

Kendall had previously been linked to Anwar Hadid, the younger brother of fellow models Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Gigi Hadid would love to own a family compound with her siblings in the future.

The model has an incredibly hectic lifestyle, with a hugely successful modelling career and various philanthropic pursuits.

Her sister Bella, 22, is also a famous model, and the pair’s busy lives, as well as those of their older half-sisters Marielle and Alana, make it hard for them to all catch up.

So in the future, Gigi would love to splash out on a place they can all go to, along with her younger brother Anwar.

“We have a family farm that we go to a lot… yeah, all four of us might, like, maybe one day buy something together somewhere just so we can have all our kids together in one place,” she told U.S. TV show Extra as she was joined by her sisters at the Variety Power of Women event in New York. “Not that I have kids yet, but one of my sisters has kids.”

Gigi was honoured for her work with UNICEF at the Variety event, and added in the chat that all of her various projects means that she is constantly maturing in all aspects.

“I just try to learn every day about myself and find women who inspire me and tell them they inspire me and I think once that conversation is started and that energy starts to run through a friendship or a community, it’s really helpful,” the 23-year-old mused. “I always get so much courage from seeing other women share their light.”

Elsewhere, Gigi added that her work with UNICEF if very much a “learning process,” and stressed: “A day in the life is really being there to ask people about their lives and go there to genuinely want to learn and understand their perspective, their wants, their desires and their dreams.

“I love being able to learn about so many different types of crisis in different types of communities and people and issues that people are dealing with and facing.”

Gigi Hadid felt “a lot of guilt” over her health when she was younger, because it meant she couldn’t understand what her poorly relatives were going through.

Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid, and her model siblings Bella and Anwar, all suffer from Lyme Disease. And seeing her nearest and dearest going through the illness was difficult for the fashion star, who didn’t have any health concerns when she was growing up.

“Growing up, having three of my family members sick made me very independent,” she told U.S. Elle magazine. “My mom couldn’t drive or get out of bed some days, so I took my brother to school with me, or I made lunch. But I also felt a lot of guilt for being the one person in the family who didn’t understand what they were going through. It’s hard when your whole family is in pain and you don’t know what to do.”

Shortly after Gigi moved to New York to pursue a modelling career, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease – which often leads to an underactive thyroid gland. She’s learned to deal with the condition over the years, and is always up for experimenting with holistic treatments which may help her.

“Most people get Hashimoto’s when they are middle-aged,” the 23-year-old explained. “I got it very early. In high school, I had a lot of water retention. Even after extra workouts, I had bloat that wouldn’t go away. And I was always tired. That was tough.

“But it’s about learning about your body. As a 17- and 18-year-old, I was prescribed a medication that many people start taking when they are 50, and it can lead to bad things if you take it for too long. So my mom looked into some holistic treatments. Also, in California, I went to see a doctor for CBD (cannabidiol) treatments. You can make a life for yourself in ways that won’t hurt your body.”

Yolanda Hadid has insisted her model children Bella, Gigi and Anwar have never used cosmetics fillers or had Botox.

The 55-year-old Making a Model host hit headlines earlier this month (Jan19) when she shared a sexy selfie, showcasing her stunning figure, as she celebrated her return to good health after a number of health issues in recent years.

In the caption, Yolanda shared that she is now free of breast implants, which she had removed after they ruptured and leaked into her chest cavity – exacerbating her symptoms of Lyme disease in the process – and other cosmetic enhancements, she claimed “almost killed” her.

“Fifty Five and smiling from the inside out,” Hadid wrote alongside the stunning photo. “Finally back to the original 1964. Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, extensions and all the bulls**t I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me.”

While the majority of people praised Yolanda for sharing such a positive message, one questioned whether or not the star’s children – world-famous models Bella, Gigi and Anwar – have ever turned to plastic surgery.

“I agree with you but what about your daughters? Especially Bella? She is beautiful but must use fillers?! And she is in the business so how do you rationalise that?” the person wrote.

But Yolanda was quick to hit back, responding: “None of my children have never done filler or Botox or put anything foreign in their bodies (sic). They know better after seeing what I went through.”

Yolanda’s comment comes after Bella, 22, told InStyle magazine last year (18) that she’d never go under the knife because she’d be too scared to do so.

“People think I got all this surgery or did this or that,” she said. “And you know what? We can do a scan of my face, darling. I’m scared of putting fillers into my lips. I wouldn’t want to mess up my face.”
