Caroline Trentini - Michael's Girl

Who will be eliminated? Who will move on to the next round? Who knows! DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!

- Is supermodel Kate Moss pregnant?!!? 

- Coco Rocha goes RED... and we're kinda loving it :) (Photo credits to: Anne @ Shoes and Worldly Things)

- "Gisele Bundchen is reportedly making secret, low-key wedding plans with boyfriend of two years Tom Brady. 'There will be no engagement, just a small wedding in mid-March.' The ceremony will likely take place in Costa Rica, where the model has a holiday home, or in her native Brazil."

- "The model agency (Storm) which discovered Kate Moss wants to sign up a Lily Cole lookalike, Georgina Hobday, whose 16th birthday bash was wrecked when it was invaded by 400 gatecrashers who saw the party advertised on Facebook."

Put Together

Who better for our next segment of "Put Together" than the winner of the first cycle of Mostly Model's Next Top Model, Daria Werbowy! This Canadian beauty certainly has a signature style that stands out from a crowd, yet blends in seamlessly with the fashion crowd. She's a fashion inspiration of mine, but remember - while it's great to admire other people's style, its important not to copy their look completely, and adapt elements of their style into your own instead. Individuality is key!

1.) Daria combines her chunky-knit sweater with a checkered button-up for a chic lumberjack inspired look. 

2.) She uses the model staple (the little leather jacket) in an unconventional way - pairing it with a floral-print maxi dress.

3.) To easily dress up her long-sleeved tee and jeans, Daria throws on a shaggy fur vest to add interest to her outfit.

4.) Seen here with fellow model Raquel Zimmerman backstage at a Chanel show, Daria keeps her outfit climate-friendly by wearing a black zipper jacket over a long-sleeved pale grey sweater and a black bag which I assume is non other than Chanel. Also notice how perfectly the shows hair and make-up goes with her outfit?

5.) No, that's not her new haircut - it's just backstage at Lanvin. Here she wears a chain necklace and loose white tee over black skinny jeans, paired with a worn-in black leather jacket for a look that a toughened casual look.

6.) How to dress down a bustier dress covered in gold paillettes? Throw on your trusty shrunken leather jacket and a pair of opaque tights. Quintessential model hair not included :)

7.) Daria is the queen of adding one stellar item to give her outfit a completely different feel. Here she wears a plain white tee with grey skinny jeans, a long thin necklace and a sequined cardigan, to take her daytime look into late-night style.

In the second to last picture I'm pretty sure Karlie Kloss is sayin' to Jourdan: "watch out girl... I'm coming for the title next cycle!" And there you have it... a preview of what could happen next cycle! Stay tuned to see who's next in the running for Mostly Model's Next Top Model (Cycle 3 ya'll!)
