Emily Ratajkowski cannot believe she used to go to bed without washing her face.

The actress and model’s good looks have landed her catwalk spots with top fashion brands such as Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, while she’s also been chosen to front campaigns for the likes of DKNY and Jason Wu.

Though her beauty regime is now on point, she cringes at the skin sins she committed in her younger years.

“I talk about this all the time: I think when you’re 20, you feel like, why do people make such a fuss about self-care?” she explained in an interview with Byrdie. “I used to not wash my face before I would go to bed, which now is just so shocking to me. I don’t care how tired I am. I go wash my face. I use retinol cream – yeah, I’ve gone there. Though, I don’t use it every night. I do it every two to three days depending on how my skin’s doing.”

And when it comes to haircare, Emily is as low maintenance as can be.

She sums up her signature style as “a middle part and textured hair to a little past my shoulders,” and says she hopes the look never goes out of fashion.

“I think I’ll be that way till it’s not cute anymore. Which, let’s hope that will last for a long time,” the 27-year-old laughed. “I just don’t want to have to think about (my hair) every second of every day. I want to be able to know what works for me and not have to be like, ‘God, what am I gonna do with my hair every day?’ and have a crisis. So for me, my day-to-day routine is just truly keeping my hair healthy because it does get so much heat and product in it all the time.”

Leomie Anderson is the latest face of American hair brand Redken

The British model has modelled since 2010 and been selected to walk the runway for luxury brands including Marc Jacobs, Loewe and Moschino, while also starring in campaigns for Rihanna’s ever-popular Fenty Beauty.

And now Leomie has landed a new gig with the hair care company, following in the footsteps of fellow models Suki Waterhouse and Lea T.

“Excited to reveal my @redken hair campaign!” she wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of her rocking a poker-straight brunette ombre hairstyle. “I remember when I was younger I would look at the windows of hair salons and never see someone like me and assumed that I would never see a black face representing something as universal as hair dye so it’s a huge honour to be a black girl representing such an iconic hair care brand, thank you @redken (heart emoji).”

Leomie, who has also modelled on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk, continued celebrating over on Twitter and insisted that landing such a high-profile campaign was a dream come true.

“Bro, when I say I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be the face of a huge hair care brand such as redken as a black girl. I’ve always wanted one to be in the window of a white hair salon with an edgy hair cut and here I am (three crying emojis, three heart emojis.”

The fashion star also urged her 23.8k followers to “google Redken campaign,” and see the predominantly white faces in the previous ads, to understand “why this is such a huge achievement for me.”

Leomie’s campaign has been positively received by her fans, and the 25-year-old took the time to reply to many messages of congratulations.

Christy Turlington: ‘Plastic surgery isn’t healthy’

Christy Turlington is opposed to cosmetic surgery procedures.

The model was one of the most famous faces in the fashion industry during the late ’80s and early ’90s, as part of the original supermodel collective alongside the likes of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer.

Though considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, Christy has now shared that ever since she was 15 years old, people have asked her whether she plans to have plastic surgery.

“I guess it was an early sign about the way our culture was going, but I don’t find it attractive. I don’t find it healthy,” she stated in an interview with U.S. InStyle. “I would never want my kids to be raised by someone who is nervous about the way they appear or to put in that much time and attention.”

Christy, who shares 14-year-old daughter Grace and 12-year-old son Finn with her husband Edward Burns, believes her relaxed and open approach to beauty stems from her upbringing.

“Maybe my mum set the precedent of not really being that fussy. Even today I didn’t shave my legs. (When I got here) I was like, ‘Oh God,'” she laughed.

However, the 49-year-old’s admirable attitude doesn’t guarantee freedom for insecurity, and she went on to recall once being seated across from a glistening Jennifer Lopez at a Marc Jacobs fashion show, six months after giving birth to Grace.

“Her skin was shiny, glowy, not a blemish. She had perfect toes, everything,” Christy gushed. “I just remember looking down and thinking, ‘I should not be here.’ And I’m sure I started lactating too.”

Anna Wintour will remain at Vogue ‘indefinitely’

Anna Wintour will remain at American Vogue “indefinitely,” according to Conde Nast’s chief executive.

Multiple reports in April (18) suggested that the fashion mogul was planning to step down as editor-in-chief of the esteemed publication after a 30-year tenure.

Sources claimed that the decision would take place after Anna signed off on Vogue’s top-selling September issue, which features cover star Beyonce, who was rumoured to have been given “unprecedented” control over the photoshoot.

A spokesperson for Conde Nast, Vogue’s publisher, “emphatically” denied the rumours previously, and now the publisher’s chief executive Bob Sauerberg has reassured fans that Anna is going nowhere.

“Anna Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure. She is integral to the future of our company’s transformation and has agreed to work with me indefinitely in her role as @voguemagazine editor-in-chief and artistic director of Conde Nast,” he wrote in a statement on the company’s Twitter feed.

Previous reports claimed that British Vogue editor Edward Enninful is being groomed to succeed the 68-year-old at the American edition, but a source “flatly denied” he was heading to the U.S. when approached by WWD.

Anna has also acted as artistic director for Conde Nast since 2013, and is one of the most famous figures in the fashion industry, renowned for her trademark pageboy bob haircut and dark sunglasses. She has been widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers – having helped launch the careers of figures including Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen – and was also thought to be the inspiration behind the fictitious Miranda Priestly, the icy fashion editor played by Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada.

The icon was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in the 2008 Birthday Honours, and the pair sat side by side when the monarch attended her first ever fashion show during London Fashion Week in February.

Kaia Gerber was ‘enchanted’ by her mother as a young girl

Kaia Gerber was totally “enchanted” by her mother Cindy Crawford when she was growing up.

The rising fashion star, who is the daughter of supermodel Cindy and her husband Rande Gerber, is fast becoming one of the most sought-after names in the business, having landed campaigns for the likes of Versace, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Omega.

While Kaia didn’t fully grasp the extent of Cindy’s career when she was a child, she has now described how she was always fascinated by her mum’s striking looks and fabulous wardrobe.

“When she was getting ready to go out in the evening, I used to follow her to her walk-in wardrobe to see which dresses she would choose. Watching her getting dressed was like being under a kind of spell. I was enchanted by her beauty,” she recalled to Vogue Italia. “You won’t believe it, but when I was little I didn’t know she was famous. I didn’t even know she was a model. For me she was just my mum, and it’s still a bit like that today.”

Kaia, who appears on the cover of the July issue of the fashion publication in a pink Valentino suit, went on to explain that she admires how Cindy has always managed to separate work and home life. She also abides by her parents’ advice for when it comes to juggling modelling gigs and her high school commitments.

“The rule is to make sure you never get too little sleep for too many days in a row,” the 16-year-old said. “Then there’s always the eagerly awaited return home, the place where you can let yourself go, sleep, get back on your feet and stay in bed. My mother has always advised me to be conscious of how lucky I am, especially with regard to travelling.”

While Kaia is exited to hitting the runway for big brands, she also spoke about the downside of entering modelling at a young age. For instance, she has to complete homework online and she often misses birthday parties for her friends and family.

“Let’s say that while I’m travelling, my home is mainly inside the telephone, thanks to Facetime. Having video access to my family has changed my life, because even if our schedules are totally messed up… it makes me feel as if I were there drinking coffee with them,” she smiled.

Marc Jacobs’ love of fashion stems from his fascination with creating an identity through clothes.

The designer started his eponymous label in 1986 and is now one of fashion’s top names. Talking to #legend magazine, New York native Jacobs credits the style he saw all around him when he was growing up as the inspiration behind his career.

“For me, I have always loved entertainment,” he began. “I remember growing up in New York and I would be so fascinated by these characters who created this imagery and persona through style. They would create an identity through clothes. I love this approach. I feel like it’s your movie – you’re the star and the costume designer.”

For the cover of #legend’s July/August 2018 issue, Jacobs posed for photographer Chen Man alongside China’s top models Xiao Wen Ju, Xiaoxing Li and Emma Pei, who were all wearing pieces, including wide-brimmed hats, from his winter 2018 collection.

During the accompanying interview, the 55-year-old also discussed the importance of make-up, something that was highlighted in the show notes of his fall/ winter 18 show in New York in February.

“Make-up is make-up. It’s what people do with it that is fun,” he smiled, referencing late Vogue editor Diana Vreeland in the way that he finds character beautiful.

He also quoted another fashion legend, Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, when asked his advice for aspiring designers.

“Originality has no memory,” he shared, recalling Chanel’s famous remark: “Only those with no memory insist on their originality.”

Leomie Anderson got scared and ran away from the modelling scout who launched her career.

The British star has modelled since 2010 and been selected to walk the runway for luxury brands including Marc Jacobs, Loewe and Moschino.

However, Leomie almost missed out her change in the fashion industry when she swerved an approach from a representative of Premier Model Management – the agency once responsible for the likes of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista.

“I was walking home from school in Wimbledon (London) looking a mess – I had red hair and was wearing electric blue mascara, when I was scouted,” the 25-year-old recalled in a cover interview for Hello! Fashion magazine. “This guy came up to me and said, ‘Hey, are you interested in modelling?’ I just thought: stranger danger. Then I jumped on a random bus so he couldn’t follow me.”

Leomie was mortified to see the same man waiting for her the same place the following day, but luckily on this occasion, she accepted his business card and the rest is history.

The rising star, who has also walked for Victoria’s Secret and featured in Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty campaigns, also admitted that it took her some time to find her feet on the catwalk.

“I don’t think it’s really possible to copy another girl’s walk, because I just know for a fact that when you start modelling, you can’t walk – well I couldn’t anyway,” she laughed. “I couldn’t do it for about a year. I just faked it.

“When you’re young, you are still learning about who you are, how to carry yourself and how to have presence,” Leomie continued, adding she isn’t a fan of the “walking classes” available to models. “I don’t think anyone else can teach you – you have to teach yourself.”

Heidi Klum willing to help her daughter become the next Kaia Gerber

Heidi Klum is willing to help her daughter Leni follow in Kaia Gerber’s footsteps.

The 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford is one of the most coveted models today, and the teen has already led campaigns for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein and Versace.

Though some critics have questioned whether Kaia is old enough to pursue such a hectic career in the fashion industry, Heidi has insisted that she would support her daughter – or any of her children – if they wanted to become models.

“If they ask me one day, and they want to pursue it, I’m going to look into a modelling agency for them,” the 45-year-old shared in an interview with U.S. Hello! magazine, but insisted that neither 14-year-old Leni nor her 12-year-old son Henry has expressed interest in this particular career path.

“She wants to dance right now. I’m letting her do what she wants to do. I’m not putting any seeds in my kids’ heads of what they should do. I want them to come up with their own things.”

Heidi, who is also mother to 11-year-old son Johan and eight-year-old daughter Lou, noted that even if Leni chooses not to pursue a fashion career, she hopes that an interest in dance will give her the same confidence she also experienced as a teenager.

“To be honest, I was always pretty confident. I think because I danced for 15 years. I’ve always been on the stage dancing. I started when I was very young,” the German supermodel explained. “My daughter is doing the same thing now. She dances three times a week, 15 hours a week. I used to love dancing too, and I think being on the stage from an early age, I don’t know, I was always a confident girl.”

Marc Jacobs Beauty has unveiled a new campaign to celebrate Pride 2018.

The New York-based brand’s #GratefulNotHateful initiative went live on social media on Friday (22Jun18), with the intention of extending the occasion beyond Pride’s iconic parade.

“You don’t have to wait for a parade, you can find ways to do that every day of your life, and someone will hear,” the 55-year-old designer explained in a statement.

The campaign is inspired by Jacobs’ everyday outlook, and the hashtag accompanies images and videos that feature him in addition to models and social media stars who are members and supporters of the LGBTQ community.

He can be seen posing in one of the photos, in which he sports powder blue eyeshadow and dramatic black eyeliner.

Jacobs’ make-up artist Glam Boy Jay, models Hunter Schafer, Ariel Nicholson and Tracey Norman – the first African-American transgender model – as well as YouTube star Manny Gutierrez also feature in the campaign.

Like the fashion icon, all wear Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Highliner Gel Eye Crayons showcasing all the colours of the rainbow.

Content is available to view on all official Marc Jacobs Beauty social media accounts, with brand executives also donating $100,000 (£75,00) to LGBTQ-orientated charities such as Sage, Le Refuge and the Ackerman Institute for the Family.

Jacobs recently celebrated his engagement to longtime boyfriend Charly Defrancesco, who popped the question in a Chipotle Mexican restaurant in early April (18).

The entire proposal was filmed and uploaded to the designer’s social media pages, showing every detail of the flash mob-inspired dance.

“And this happened…’Charly Defrancesco will you marry me?’ #flashmobatchipotle #moves,” Jacobs captioned the video. “THANK YOU everyone for making this happen (sic). And to my Ride or Die fiance @chardefrancesco I LOVE YOU (heart emoji).”

Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell have teamed up with Adidas to create footwear in honour of Pride 2018.

The British supermodels have been recruited by DJ Fat Tony, real name Tony Marnach, who has organised for them each to design their own version of the sportswear brand’s iconic Samba sneaker to commemorate the occasion.

Other famous LGBTQ+ supporters have been invited on board, including the likes of British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, Marc Jacobs, Pharrell Williams and David Beckham.

“I have been involved in activities around London Pride in some shape or form since the late 1980s,” Manarch explained in an interview with British Vogue. “I wanted to create something with Adidas that really spoke to where we are today by envisaging a new notion of pride as being one with no labels; and how we as a community alongside our allies can push things further still.”

Naomi, 48, has created a pair of black leather Samba shoes with purple suede panels and metallic silver stripes on either side. The footwear also features rainbow striped laces with matching trim around each sole.

Whereas 44-year-old Kate has opted for a more understated all-over metallic silver concept.

Enninful has gone for a monochrome colourblock theme which features an image of a dog’s face on one side of the sneaker’s tongue, as well as a belt-like strap intended to resemble the pooch’s collar.

All footwear will be displayed in a free exhibition at the HENI Gallery in Soho from 4-10 July (18), when London Pride Week takes place, while an eBay auction will be held on 3 July in order to raise funds for charity The Albert Kennedy Trust, which provides safety and support to members of the LGBTQ+ community who are facing homelessness.
