Emily Ratajkowski ditched her brunette locks in favour of a blonde hue for a new Kerastase campaign.

The 29-year-old model/actress took to Instagram to show off her blonde hair with a series of snaps taken at the home she shares with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, as it was announced she would be the face of the new Blond Absolu collection for the French luxury hair care line.

“I’ve never coloured my hair or changed the length significantly in my entire life,” the star said in a statement. “I’m absolutely thrilled that Kerastase gave me their blessing to become a blonde.

“I just celebrated my birthday and am so happy to be coming out of quarantine with a fresh new look. Beauty is meant to be fun and expressive and this is definitely, hands down, the most fun I’ve ever had with my look before.”

Alongside a series of snaps on Instagram she told fans: “Day 1 as a blondie.”

And she’s not the only fashion star to be embracing a lighter hair colour in time for the summer.

Fellow model Kaia Gerber recently stepped out in Malibu with a brand new platinum blonde ‘do, while heading out for a lunch date at her father Rande Gerber’s restaurant Cafe Habana.

The 18-year-old debuted subtle blonde highlights back in April, and said she was prompted to give herself an at-home dye job because she was so bored.

“I recently posted a video on Instagram of Audrey Hepburn cutting her own bangs because I got to the point in quarantine where I was like, I’m either going to cut my hair or dye it,” she told Refinery29. “I knew something was going to happen, so I decided to give myself at-home highlights.”

Kaia Gerber has dislocated her wrist in a mystery accident while in lockdown at her family home in Malibu, California.

The 18-year-old, who is holed up with mother Cindy Crawford and dad Rande Gerber, shared a snap on Instagram on Saturday which showed her wearing a khaki bikini with a bright blue cast from her hand up to her elbow.

“Had a little accident but I’m okay!” Kaia captioned the snap, which was followed by a picture of an X-ray showing the broken bone in her right wrist.

It’s unclear how the model broke her bone, but her friend Delilah Belle Hamlin, daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna, suggested she’d taken a tumble down the stairs.

“Did you fall down those stairs?” Delilah commented, referencing the flight of steps in the background of Kaia’s photo. “Those stairs are certainly daunting.”

Designer Alexander Wang, actress Ellen Pompeo, and fellow model Martha Hunt also sent their well wishes to Kaia, while Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge sweetly commented: “Oh no cutie!!! Feel better,” and Sara Sampaio wrote: “Oh nooo! Get better soon.”

The model has been keeping busy during the lockdown, as she’s managed to give herself a tattoo, host a virtual book club for Instagram fans, and take part in intense workouts with her famous supermodel mother. She also announced she was fostering a three-week-old puppy.

Paris Jackson inks tattoo on her own foot

Paris Jackson has tattooed her own foot while spending time at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

The actress/singer, who is the daughter of late music icon Michael Jackson, already has an extensive body art collection, with her tattoos including a pair of feathers behind her right ear, an image of a stag’s head on the back of her right forearm, colourful chakra motifs down the centre of her torso, and a tribute to rock band Led Zeppelin on one arm.

However, Paris has now decided to test out her own skills, and on Tuesday, uploaded a snap to her Instagram page showing herself using a tattoo gun while drawing a small design just below her right little toe.

The 22-year-old didn’t share any further details about the meaning of the inking, though did post a close-up of the tattoo to her Instagram Stories.

And Paris isn’t the only celebrity to experiment with tattoos during the Covid-19 pandemic, as model Kaia Gerber revealed last month that she had given herself a stick-and-poke tattoo while at home during self-isolation.

Unlike traditional tattoos, simple stick-and-poke designs don’t require any electric tools, and typically involve using a tattoo-grade needle and ink, which can easily be applied to the skin.

“I think I have a newfound appreciation for tattoo artists. It’s not easy,” the 18-year-old admitted during an interview with Glamour magazine. “I didn’t get too ambitious. I gave myself a dot, just so I could be like, ‘All right, I got a tattoo this month, I’m cool.'”

Kaia Gerber is making an effort to look glam even though she’s holed up at home in Los Angeles.

In a new chat with U.S. Elle magazine, the model opened up about how her beauty routine and style has changed while she’s been practicing social distancing during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and noted that she’s still getting ready to go out, even though she’s staying in.

“For me, it’s been really important to get ready every day even though I’m not going anywhere,” the 18-year-old said. “That’s been one of the biggest things keeping me sane – having that routine.”

She confessed it was too easy to just laze around at home in Malibu, so she tried to get dressed and carry on her beauty regime.

“It can be really easy when you’re staying home every day to fall into that cycle of just staying in your pyjamas so I’m just getting myself out of bed, showering, and doing my skincare routine,” Kaia added.

And the daughter of Cindy Crawford also revealed that she’s been using face masks and charcoal cleansers to keep her skin in tip-top condition.

“Since we’re sitting inside all the time and we’re not getting fresh air it’s an adjustment for every part of you but also your skin,” the brunette beauty explained, before sharing that she’s been enjoying time off from wearing heavy cosmetics. “The biggest thing for me has been letting my skin take a break from make-up because when I’m modelling I’m constantly getting my make-up done and taken off and that can be really hard on your skin, so I’ve been letting my skin breathe.”

Kaia Gerber is rocking a mullet hairstyle while spending time at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

The model has opened up about her self-isolation beauty regime in an interview with U.S. Glamour magazine, and during the chat, she noted that she will be getting a haircut as soon as the social distancing restrictions ease.

“I’ll probably get a haircut because if anyone knows me, they know how obsessed I am with cutting my hair. It’s one of my favourite things to do. I’ve been trying to hold off on taking the scissors to my own hair. So, hopefully, I’ll be able to get that done,” Kaia shared, before confessing that she was unsure what style to go for once the restrictions are lifted.

“I have a mullet right now, which I’m not mad at, but I do eventually have to go back into the real world. So, I’m thinking we’ll see how the mullet progresses throughout quarantine.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Kaia also revealed that she’s struggling to remove her gel nail polish and is desperate to get a good manicure.

“I currently have a half-grown-out gel nail polish situation going on. So, I’m trying to figure out a way to take them off myself without completely destroying my nails,” the 18-year-old explained. “I would love to get my nails done. I feel like even if I just do my own nails, I’ll feel like a human again. But I’m currently stripping off old gels.”

Kaia Gerber has given herself a stick-and-poke tattoo while at home during self-isolation.

The model has opened up about life in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic for an interview with Glamour magazine, and during the chat, confessed that she resorted to DIY ink to tide her over until she could get a real tattoo.

“I’ve been struggling because one of my favourite pastimes was going and getting tattoos, and nobody’s been able to do that. So, in the meantime, I gave myself a stick-and-poke, which I do not recommend,” she told the publication.

Unlike traditional tattoos, simple stick-and-poke designs don’t require any electric tools, and typically involve using a tattoo-grade needle and ink, which can easily be applied to the skin.

“I think I have a newfound appreciation for tattoo artists. It’s not easy,” the 18-year-old admitted. “I didn’t get too ambitious. I gave myself a dot, just so I could be like, “All right, I got a tattoo this month, I’m cool.”

She also discussed her other tattoos, and said that while she might have an addiction to getting ink, each one represents a special time in her life.

“I have a Picasso painting on my arm. That was one of the first ones I got, so maybe that one. It’s hard to pick a favourite!” she shared, adding that she’s also got one dedicated to her famous mother, Cindy Crawford. “I think I was so worried I was going to regret every tattoo I got, and they all represent such an important time in my life, even if the tattoo itself doesn’t have much importance. It’s like they’re all memories, so I don’t feel like I could ever see myself regretting them.”

Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington have discussed their favourite young models in a candid chat.

To celebrate the 34th year of her fashion career, the British supermodel invited her longtime pal Christy to have a chat with her on her No Filter with Naomi show on her YouTube channel on Tuesday.

During the discussion, the pair opened up about a number of topics, including the models they believe to have similar friendships today.

“I would say Karlie Kloss is super close with her group of people. Jourdan (Dunn) is one of her closest. I think they’re friendly with Gigi (Hadid) and some of those girls too,” commented Christy, while the host added: “I’m loving Alton (Mason), and your nephew James (Turlington). There’s another Turlington in the family that’s a model that’s going to be iconic too!”

Naomi then went on to praise Adut Akech, Selena Forrest, and Kaia Gerber, who is the daughter of fellow ’90s supermodel Cindy Crawford.

“I just love their whole spirit of life and the way they dress – they’re always dressed and they’re always posing – but they’re enjoying it and they’re having fun. And they’re all friends,” the 49-year-old smiled.

Elsewhere in the video interview, the top models also reflected on their time as roommates in New York City, with Naomi having nothing but praise for her contemporary.

“You spoke about me to (photographer) Steven Meisel, you spoke about me to (designer) Gianni Versace, you just kept on doing and giving and being so generous to me. And putting yourself on the frontline and saying to designers, ‘If you don’t use her, you don’t get us,'” recalled Naomi, while Christy, 51, stated: “You made a mark, the moment that I met you I knew you were special and so much fun.”

Kaia Gerber is starting a book club on social media.

Like millions of people around the world, the model is practicing social distancing and staying at home during the coronavirus crisis.

Kaia has been using the time away from her busy schedule to catch up on some books, and in a recent Instagram post, announced her plans to launch a reading group online.

“I know we are all feeling isolated right now, so I was trying to think of easy ways we can stay connected (beyond just scrolling) and decided i’m gonna start a book club. i read a lot on my own, but would love to be able to talk to you guys about it… so every week i’m gonna post a book to my stories and the following week i’ll jump on live (sometimes with a friend, writer, guest etc.) so we can all talk about the book that week (sic),” she wrote.

Kaia has been rereading Sally Rooney’s Normal People lately and selected the 2018 novel as her first pick for the club.

“I want to start with a new favourite I’m actually rereading right now: Normal People by Sally Rooney. download it, borrow it, order it if you can! let’s all meet here and talk next week,” the 18-year-old added, noting that the first book club will officially begin at 5pm on 3 April.

Elsewhere, Kaia posted some lists of the other books she’s been reading on her Instagram Stories. The star recommended a number of titles, such as Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Mario Vargas Llosa’s The Bad Girl, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, as well as classics such as Plato’s Symposium.

Kaia Gerber has landed her first U.S Vogue cover photoshoot.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has been tapped to appear alongside Adut Akech and Ugbad Abdi on the front of the April 2020 issue of the publication.

Titled Beauty without Borders, the edition is focused on celebrating models from 26 different nations, including Fran Summers, Anok Yai, Liu Wen, and Vittoria Ceretti, and accordingly, Kaia could not be more thrilled to be in the mix.

“My first american vogue cover!” she captioned a photo of the cover on her Instagram page. “@voguemagazine april issue by the endlessly inspiring @tylersphotos. words cannot describe what this moment means to me, and to share it with women who empower me every day makes it even more special @iamugbad @adutakech I feel so lucky! thank you to everyone who made this happen! girl power (sic).”

Previously, Kaia appeared on the cover of the April 2016 issue of Paris Vogue alongside her supermodel mother and fronted the October 2019 cover of British Vogue.

The new photoshoot was helmed by Tyler Mitchell, with the models styled by Camilla Nickerson.

And in an accompanying article, the brunette beauty opened up about how she wants to use her public platform and large social media following to inspire young people to educate themselves about politics.

“With all the information that’s out there, we can’t claim ignorance anymore,” the 18-year-old insisted. “My generation sees it as their duty to educate themselves, to speak up – we won’t be silenced by anyone.

“When you have a big platform, it seems irresponsible not to use it for good.”

Adut Akech is “beyond honoured” to star on the cover of U.S. Vogue alongside Ugbad Abdi and Kaia Gerber.

The South Sudanese-Australian beauty fronts the April 2020 issue, which celebrates models from around the world, including Paloma Elsesser, Liu Wen and Adesuwa Aighewi, in an effort to represent the 25 international editions of the fashion bible.

In the groundbreaking cover, Adut wears a Vera Wang Collection bra, bustier, and corset with Diesel jeans, and shared the image with her 873,000 followers on Instagram.

Sweetly tagging the photo’s location as “on cloud nine”, she wrote in the caption: “wow mum look at on the cover of American Vogue, I don’t actually have real words for this right now but I’m so beyond honoured to be sharing my first-ever American Vogue cover with you all.

Adut continued: “This has been a dream of mine from the start of my modelling career and it just came true!!! I just want to thank every single person involved in making this possible. To Anna Wintour and the entire vogue team @felicitybwebb thank you so much for the bottom of my heart for giving this South Sudanese refugee little girl this opportunity to represent.”

The 20-year-old also shared her excitement to become only the second black model, after trailblazer Naomi Campbell, to have starred on the covers of the Big Four – British Vogue, U.S. Vogue, Vogue Italia, and Vogue Paris.

“I finally have the big 4 vogue covers and the second black girl to do it in history after my mama @naomi I’m gonna cry myself to sleep now bye (sic),” she touchingly concluded her emotional post.
