Hailey Bieber has dropped a major hint indicating she may be done with runway modelling.

The model launched her career in 2014 when she made her catwalk debut walking for Topshop, and since then, she has appeared in shows for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Philipp Plein, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott.

But in a recent post on her Instagram Stories, Hailey shared a photo of her strutting down the catwalk during the Zadig & Voltaire fall/winter 2018 show and criticised her arm placement.

“What I do know, is that ur arm truly should never swing this high when ur walking on a runway (sic),” she captioned the image, circling her arm in blue. “Hence why it is not, and will never be my thing again lol (laugh out loud).”

Hailey did not share any further comments on her possible career move. The last major runway show she appeared in was Versace’s pre-fall 2019 show held in New York City last December.

However, shortly before the blonde star wed popstar Justin Bieber in a courthouse ceremony in September, she shared in an interview with WWD that she is planning to be more selective about her modelling gigs in the future.

“I’ve tried to be really choosy with fashion week going forward, just because I want to have the time to spend being relaxed and being with family – and my fiance,” the 22-year-old commented.

In spite of her latest social media posts, it appears Hailey is still passionate about campaign modelling, and has recently landed gigs for brands such as Miu Miu, Max Mara, Levi’s, and Carolina Herrera.

Duckie Thot swears cocoa butter is the secret to soft skin

Duckie Thot is a big fan of using cocoa butter and swears it is the key to “glowy” skin.

The Australian model, who is of South Sudanese heritage, has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion world since launching her career in 2013, having landed work for the likes of Yeezy, Fenty Beauty, Oscar de la Renta, Moschino, and L’Oreal.

Now, Duckie has shared some of her favourite beauty products, and noted Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion is at the top of her list.

“After every single shower, I’ll sit there for a good 10 minutes and lather my whole body with cocoa butter,” she said in an interview with New York Magazine’s The Strategist. “It just stays on all day, and your skin looks so glowy. It’s not too thick. Sometimes oil gets on clothes, which is really annoying, but I love the cocoa butter – it just goes on super-nice.”

Duckie went on to explain that she is a big fan of Simple’s Cleansing Facial Wipes for removing make-up, and usually washes her face with Clarins’ Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

“It’s just so thick and creamy, and just a small pump gives you so much product. It’s really gentle on my skin, though I’d say it’s good for all skin types, honestly. It just makes your skin feel really great after you use it. I take it with me everywhere; I use it morning and night,” the 23-year-old said of the brand’s formula.

Elsewhere in the chat, Duckie shared that she can’t get enough of Apple’s AirPods, the Savage x Fenty Padded Eye Mask for when she is travelling, and more unusually, champions fibre supplements from Metamucil.

“I drink the powder with water in the morning; it’s a cleanser, an inside cleanser. I feel like it’s great to have with breakfast, and it just gets you going for the day. It helps me feel more active,” she praised.

Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and Joan Smalls have joined forces for a new Dynasty-inspired Moschino ad.

The supermodels feature in the fall 2019 campaign, which is heavily influenced by the 1980s TV soap opera that starred Joan Collins, Linda Evans and John Forsythe.

Creative director Jeremy Scott has teamed up with fashion photographer Steven Meisel for the ads, and according to the press release from the Italian fashion house, “there is drama, catfights and over the top glamour.”

Male models Denek Kania, Mason McKenrick and Trevor Signorino make up the rest of the cast, as Hadid, Shayk, and Smalls play powerful wealthy women who either embark on affairs or catch their cheating husbands in the act.

The ’80s-inspired costumes were styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, with hairstylist Guido Palau backcombing the models’ hair into bouffants, and the legendary Pat McGrath on make-up.

Hadid shared the teaser trailer of the ad campaign on Instagram and tagged Shayk and Smalls.

“A look into the MOSCHINO DYNASTY. COMING SOON TO A SCREEN NEAR YOU,” the 24-year-old wrote. “This was the best day. Obsessed with you, my girls. Days like this are the ones I dreamt about when I wanted to be in this industry. Thank you, forever.”

Shayk, 33, who recently split with Bradley Cooper, also posted the video on social media.

“So happy to be a part of the new @moschino campaign. Jeremy always bringing excitement and laughter to fashion,” the mother-of-one wrote on Instagram, while a Moschino rep wrote on the brand’s official page: “TUNE IN THIS SEASON ON @MOSCHINO AND WATCH AS ALL THE DRAMA UNFOLDS!”

Cardi B once spent $6,000 (£4,730) on a Givenchy suit in a bid to “get noticed” by designers.

The I Like It hitmaker spoke to fashionistas at the recent Room Service membership event at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, hosted by Creative Jenius Report founder CJ South, where she was supported her stylist Kollin Carter.

While sipping on a strawberry margarita, Cardi candidly revealed how she started small and took baby steps at the beginning of her music career, and even spent her own money on her red carpet look for the BET Awards in 2017.

“For the BET Awards, the first time I went, my Givenchy suit cost about $5,000 to $6,000,” she said, before explaining that stylists should be advising their clients to spend money so they get recognised by big designers. “Little by little, they notice you. And you get noticed.”

Both Kollin and Cardi acknowledged that it took a while for the rapper to get accepted by big-name designers, and she urged stylists to tell their clients to attend every single fashion show they get invited to.

“It took us a while to get accepted and sometimes we used to be like, ‘Damn, when are we going to get invited to these shows? When are we gonna sit front row at these shows?'” the 26-year-old recalled. “And remember, you might get invited to a new designer’s show at fashion week. Don’t ever think, ‘Oh, but that’s so little. Well, who is that? I never heard of them.’ Attend. And make sure you dress nicely and bossed up.”

While Cardi has been dressed by the likes of Moschino’s Jeremy Scott, the former Love & Hip Hop: New York reality star laughed as she revealed no fashion houses would go near her unless she had style.

“You could be the hottest and they just don’t want you in their clothes because you just don’t got that style (sic). So it’s like you gotta prove to them that you got that style. You’ve got to keep on proving,” she smiled.

Jeremy Scott could soon be doing a Tom Ford and stepping behind the camera to direct a movie.

The Moschino head shared his filmmaking dreams in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter after unveiling a new line influenced by monster movies.

Asked if he had any ambitions to become a director after he worked closely with Universal on his horror-imbued line, he exclaimed: “I would love to! We are in Hollywood, aren’t we?”

Revealing the idea for his latest Moschino collection came about after he went on a private Universal Studios tour at the Hollywood theme park, Jeremy decided to pay homage to some of Universal’s most memorable monster movies, like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon. He also drew on films like King Kong, modern horror Scream, and ’80s classic The Shining.

Items from the 2020 men’s and women’s line include a Casper the Friendly Ghost T-shirt, jeans printed with Frankenstein stitches, a Dracula cape, a white tulle dress reminiscent of an Egyptian mummy’s bandages and a pleated white dress teamed with an oversized black gorilla hand which doubles as a cape.

“I love all these different types of horror in Hollywood cinema; I eat it all up!” Jeremy said, adding how the idea first came to him.

“I saw this idyllic, beautiful street (at Universal Studios) and it inspired me. I thought, ‘Something sinister’s going to happen here’ and I started designing the collection. And that’s when I started going around the Halloween theme. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon all originated here at Universal so I wanted to do an homage to them. A little spooky couture! And I thought about kids trick-or-treating. Some things are more sinister, some are more playful. That’s the thing about Halloween. Everything goes!”

Katy Perry’s custom Moschino hamburger outfit for the Met Galal after-party was Jeremy Scott’s wild idea.

The 34-year-old popstar headed to the prestigious annual fashion event wearing a crystal-covered chandelier dress with a matching headdress, also by Jeremy, and stunned onlookers as the light bulbs on the chandelier were turned on.

Later, for the Italian fashion house’s official after party, she surprised once more by wearing a custom burger suit that was covered in sparkles, with an off-the-shoulder lettuce minidress underneath.

Fittingly, the Roar hitmaker also sported burger sneakers from her own Katy Perry Collections label, and had the Munchie shoes jazzed up with extra bling by costume designer Erin Lareau.

Katy insisted that it was pure coincidence designer Jeremy had decided to dress her up in a fast food themed outfit, apparently unaware she had shoes to match.

“It was symmetry. It was the universe. I don’t think Jeremy had seen the shoes yet,” she told Footwear News. “He presented me with two ideas, and I said ‘Well, I love them both, and they both represent my personality.’ He said, ‘Great, because I was thinking one for the actual event and one for the after-party’.

“He just came up with both of those, and they were fab. We have a long-standing friendship – forever.”

The singer’s playful looks both fitted in with this year’s Met Gala theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion. The singer was one of many famous faces, including Bella Hadid, Gwen Stefani and Stella Maxwell, to be dressed by Moschino for the event, hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.

Tracee Ellis Ross was transformed into a “piece of art” for her chic avant-garde look for the Met Gala last week.

The Black-ish star wore an understand black Moschino gown, with her look completed with an ornate gold picture frame around her face.

And while the theme for the annual fashion event was Camp: Notes on Fashion, Tracee’s stylist explained that they decided to go for a more low-key approach to the theme.

“We went camp in a really kind of cerebral, nuanced way. I feel like it’s a very layered thing, and you have to like, think about it when you see it,” Karla Welch told InStyle.com.

The stylist, who also dressed Sarah Paulson, Amber Valletta and Alessia Cara for the high fashion event, further revealed she wanted to show Tracee as a walking piece of art.

“We’re going more… a piece of art, to be honest,” she told the outlet. “It’s how we make ourselves art. For me, camp is a vessel for art, and we took that into consideration. Also, a woman is a piece of art, so there’s something there as well.”

Tracee later posted snaps from the red carpet of her rocking her unique look, and revealed that the inspiration for the picture frame was from American artist Lorraine O’Grady. Her Art Is movement captured images of people attending Harlem’s African American Day parade with framed faces.

“RECLAIMING THE NARRATIVE ~ black camp… thank you #lorraineogrady for existing and creating ‘art is’,” she wrote on Instagram.

Jeremy Scott views camp as glamour mixed with ‘over-the-top humour’

Jeremy Scott has opened up about what camp means to him in the wake of the 2019 Met Gala.

Designers took the theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion, and ran with it at this year’s style extravaganza, with celebrities like Katy Perry, Celine Dion and Billy Porter stepping out in spectacular designs.

The concept was taken from Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay of the same name, with an exhibition based around the idea set to open at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Wednesday, curated by officials at the museum’s Costume Institute.

Talking about how camp informs his own designs, Scott told Interview magazine: “Camp to me means over-the-top humour, usually coupled with big doses of glamour. Like everything, the meaning is defined by context. A lot of what is now camp was dead serious at one time, and vice versa.

“I’ve grown up in a very post-post-modern world-references piled on top of references, decades re-emerged and remixed to define the ones we are living in. I grew up genuinely loving things that were bright and glossy, colourful and full of joy-like Barbie. Her late ’80s pink Corvette lifestyle of big blonde hair, totally pink minidresses, and perpetually perfect accessories are now, in this time, rendered ripe for camp.”

For Monday’s event, Moschino head Scott dressed Stella Maxwell, Sarah Paulson, Bella Hadid, Gwen Stefani, Perry, who’s outfit resembled a chandelier, Tracee Ellis Ross, who was decked out with a giant photo frame attached to the front of her dress, and Kacey Musgraves, who came as a real-life Barbie.

The designer ramped things up even more for the after-party looks, with Roar singer Perry slipping into a Moschino burger costume and Stefani swapping her sexy showgirl outfit for an ultra mini skirt with matching tank top bearing the New York Post’s logo.

Taylor Swift has continued with her pastel streak by wearing a lilac dress to the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Almost a week after dropping her new single ME!, the singer made a splash on the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (01May19) when she stepped out in a light purple skater-style minidress from Raisa & Vanessa.

Taylor accessorised with matching high heels from Casadei, and a star-studded ear cuff, while her make-up artist Lorrie Turk completed the look by giving her a sweep of lavender-coloured eyeshadow on her lids and slick of rose-pink lipstick.

With her upcoming seventh studio album, Taylor has recently adopted a new pastel-shaded aesthetic, having been spotted out and about in New York City with pink dip-dyed hair and floral-printed dresses, while she also helped to design the peach and yellow-coloured J. Mendel gown that she wore to the recent Time 100 Gala.

In addition, the superstar has been curating her Instagram page to reflect her new theme, with the account now featuring close-up images of pink sequin fabric, a light blue bicycle, heart-shaped jewellery, pastel tiles, and pink and yellow handbags.

Other celebrities to make sartorial statements at the Billboard Music Awards included Cardi B, who rocked a canary yellow skirt and top from Moschino, and Diplo, who opted for a purple and gold cowboy-inspired suit.

Ciara wowed in a black dress with flowing train from Stephane Rolland, actress Olivia Wilde dazzled in a gold Ralph Lauren number, and Jennifer Hudson opted for a brown Area Suit with crystal detailing, which she matched with Stuart Weitzman shoes and The Residency earrings.

Sophie Turner, who wed fiance Joe Jonas following the ceremony, sported head-to-toe Louis Vuitton, while her sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra looked stunning in a white Zuhair Murad Couture ensemble.

Elsewhere, Halsey turned heads in a blue satin and black lace dress, which she matched with dramatic make-up and purple lipstick, and rapper Yung Miami rocked a neon green tulle dress from Oyemwen and bright yellow Christian Louboutin pumps.

Moschino is set to take over the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot in Los Angeles for its annual cruise 2020 presentation.

The fashion label, spearheaded by creative director Jeremy Scott, will showcase its cruise 2020 line-up alongside its men’s spring 2020 collection at the show, which is slated to take place on 7 June.

The iconic location is a landmark in the U.S. movie industry, and follows the Italian brand’s impressive presentation held at Rome’s legendary Cinecitta Studios in January, where it previewed its men’s fall 2019 and its women’s pre-fall 2019 collections.

The show bore a similarly cinematic theme, and paid tribute to celebrated Italian director and screenwriter Federico Fellini, whose popular credits include La Dolce Vita and La Strada.

Under Scott’s creative direction, the Moschino brand is renowned for its celebrations of pop culture, with previous references within the line including Barbie, Looney Tunes and SpongeBob SquarePants.

News of Moschino’s return to Los Angeles comes shortly after the brand launched its recent The Sims inspired capsule collection at Coachella last month.

Speaking of the collaboration, the designer gushed over his love of fantasy and shared that he likes to create storylines and characters within his fashion lines.

“I love the idea of being able to imagine, design and bring to life a world of individual personas with The Sims universe,” he said in a statement. “That concept emulates what I get to do for each collection at Moschino as I create a fantasy universe of spectacular storylines and characters.”
