Just when we thought that the line-up for the second season of 'Project Runway All Stars' was confirmed, today another change was confirmed.
In case you haven't been following Angela Lindvall, who hosted the show last season, made a surprise departure, which left many speculating that her exit wasn't entirely mutual. Since then Rosie Huntington-Whitely was brought on board as her replacement but recently it was revealed that the model dropped out of the show three weeks before filming was set to begin due to her filming commitments for Mad Max.
The latest change is the news that producers have secured supermodel Carolyn Murphy to take Huntington-Whiteley's place. Aside from that, everything else will stay at the same and Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will return to the judging panel and Marie Claire's Joanna Coles will continue in her role as the designer's mentor.
Last week we showed you Karl Lagerfeld's cover for i-D magazine's spring 2012 issue and now, all of the other special covers are out and they're really good. Shalom Harlow, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Carolyn Murphy and Georgia May Jagger are just a few of the faces fronting the new issue that hits newsstands this Thursday.
Orlando Bloom was centre of attention at the Dior show last month as he took pictures of his wife, Miranda Kerr, as she walked in the show but that's not the only time the actor has shot Kerr.
This week Rag & Bone released this image of the model shot by Bloom as a part of their DIY project. According to a release, all models - including Carolyn Murphy and Karolina Kurkova - were given pieces from the collection and a digital camera and were left to take shoot themselves.
You can see these black Balenciaga biker boots everywhere and we have Gisele Bundchen to thank for them being featured in the brand's SS11 show.
"The idea was to have this crazy casting with Gisele and Amber Valletta and Carolyn [Murphy], and they said no for high heels," Nicholas Ghesquiere explained. "They were not used to walking with heels anymore. Gisele was worried; she would not walk with my heels ... I was already thinking flats and I was already preparing the flat shoes."
Yesterday Estée Lauder confirmed that Liu Wen and Constance Jablonski are the latest addition to their line of brand ambassadors, which currently includes Hilary Rhoda, Carolyn Murphy, Elizabeth Hurley and Gwyneth Paltrow. Although they have not confirmed what each are set to promote, we are told that the campaign will debut in June.
This is the first time the pair have worked with the brand and Liu is officially the first Chinese model to be signed to the brand; while Constance is the first French model to land the campaign. “Estée Lauder has always searched for global beauties that define a generation," Aerin Lauder said. "Constance and Liu Wen are the beauties of our time. Both models have quickly captured the attention of the fashion and beauty world.”
Ad campaigns, catwalk shows, magazine covers, even commercial newsstand value: The Daily Beast has assessed all the aspects of a model’s “visibility and success” to determine supermodel superiority and has ranked them as a top-10 list.
“We considered four tenets to illustrate a model’s visibility and success — multi-year contracts, advertising campaigns, runway appearances, and magazine covers. Those with retail licensing deals, including Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen, got credit for those estimated annual earnings, as well. Annual income from contracts, primarily negotiated by large cosmetic companies and Victoria’s Secret, were weighted 40 percent because they are the most difficult to get, bear the largest salaries, and indicate a very high level of success.”
