- "Paris museum pays homage to Kate Moss: In November of 2009, Paris’ Les Arts D√©coratifs will debut an exhibit dedicated to “the Kate Moss myth.” The museum’s curator-in-chief told reporters at a press conference yesterday that Moss’ modeling agency has kept archives of “absolutely everything she’s done from the very beginning, including archive material from two decades ago.”, including the original, super steamy Calvin Klein ads."

- "Gisele Bundchen is set to auction off her set of private jewellery collection for charity, which were reportedly gifted to her by an unnamed ex-lover.

Model of the Month...September






September's not even over and we're naming our model of the month! If there's one face that stood out to us in every fashion week so far (and probably Paris, which starts next week) it's the 17 year-old, German beauty Antonia (aka Toni) Garrn. Her classic beauty has graced adverts, magazine covers and of course, runways, across the globe. Her most notable work includes: French, Italian, and German Vogue editorials; a cover of German Vogue; replacing Natalia Vodianova as the face of Calvin Klein and replacing Irina Kulikova as the face of Jill Stuart; closing the Fall 2008 RTW Calvin Klein show as a worldwide exclusive; and opening the spring 2009 RTW shows for Carolina Herrera, Herve Leger, Jill Stuart, Fendi, and Derercuny. And fashion week isn't even over. Make sure to watch Toni - I mean, how many other models have landed editorials for Elle and Italian Elle within their very first month of modeling? That's why Toni Garrn is our Model of the Month. Congrats!

- "Not-quite-so-thin" is in for models at NY Fashion Week: If model thin is always in, at least there were fewer protruding collar bones and ribs to be counted at New York Fashion Week.
Models were up to sizes 2 and 4 — not 0, according to Nian Fish, chair of a fashion designers health initiative. Designers rejected prepubescent 13-year-olds. And at least one super-thin model who had the audience talking a few seasons ago was noticeably absent.
"I think a lot of the direction from the designers has been a much healthier approach," (excerpt from the models blog)
