Tyra Banks lists Beverly Hills villa for $7.75MWanna live the fab life? Tyra Banks’ Beverly Hills villa is fierce H2T — and for $7.75 million, this terracotta-roofed Spanish Colonial might just be imbued with the same inspiration and attitude.
The supermodel walked the runways for Chanel, Valentino and others before she found über-success as the producer and host of the long-running reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model.” These days, Banks has her hand in a number of projects, most notably her new talk show “FABLife” with Chrissy Teigen.
The arched stone entryway — one of many features that remain from the home’s 1926 construction — leads to the gated courtyard, where hand-crafted tiles line the fountain and staircase.
Banks added a luxurious sunroom, where she liked to spend summer evenings, according to the Wall Street Journal. You will, too! Who could pass up spending the twilight hours next to a cozy fireplace, surrounded by serene white walls?
Banks also added a gym in the garage. If getting your body into booty-tooching shape isn’t your thing, you could take a peaceful dip in the pool. However you choose to spend your time here, this charming house is sure to elicit a smize.
Coco Rocha didn’t wash her face for three yearsCoco Rocha has a dirty little secret.
The Canadian-born beauty committed a cardinal sin of skin care by sleeping in full makeup every night for three years.
“When I started modeling I did not take care of my skin very well,” the 27-year-old told Page Six at the Clarisonic x Keith Haring party in New York Wednesday. “I would do a photo shoot, wake up and in the morning do another shoot thinking they would just remove yesterday’s makeup. That was bad.”
The new mother has cleaned up her act and now dedicates a full hour each day to her facial regimen, relying on a mix of drugstore brands like Clearasil and high-end products only available in France.
“Now I’m OCD about it,” explained Rocha. “Finally I realized my mother was right and I’ve got to take care of my skin.”
Giving birth to daughter Ioni, 6 months, allowed the “Face” coach to refocus her life and dispel the myth that all top models live a wild rock ’n’ roll lifestyle.
“A lot of us [models] love being in our pajamas at home watching horrible TV just like any average woman,” she confessed. “Now I just want to hang out with my baby all day long. The poor other models when I bring out my phone — they’re like, ‘We don’t need to see her [Ioni] one more time.’”
Model sues Bill Cosby over alleged 2008 sexual assaultA model who has accused Bill Cosby of drugging her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 sued the comedian on Tuesday for sexual assault.
Chloe Goins' lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles seeks punitive damages for a variety of problems she says she has endured since the incident, including mental anguish, loss of self-esteem and dignity.
"Bill Cosby touched an intimate part of Chloe Goins' body while she was seriously disabled and/or unconscious," the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit is the third filed against Cosby since last year, when allegations of his sexual abuse began receiving new scrutiny. Three of his accusers are suing the comedian for defamation in Springfield, Massachusetts, because of statements released on his behalf that branded them as liars.
Cosby is also being sued in Los Angeles by Judy Huth, who claims Cosby molested her at the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15. Huth and Cosby's lawyers are scheduled to be in a Santa Monica courtroom on Wednesday to argue a motion over Cosby's upcoming deposition in that case.
Many of the accusations against Cosby are barred from being prosecuted or filed as civil lawsuits because of statutes of limitations.
Cosby's attorney Marty Singer did not immediately return an email message seeking comment about Goins' lawsuit. He has previously denied the accusations and denied Cosby was in town on the date one of the model's lawyers has said the incident occurred.
Goins' lawsuit does not specify a date when the incident occurred, but states it is being filed under a provision that allows victims of underage sexual abuse to sue for several years after they turn 18. Goins turned 18 in May 2008, which would place the incident several months before August 2008, the date her attorney Spencer Kuvin initially said the incident occurred on.
The AP doesn't normally identify people who say they are victims of sexual abuse, but Goins has come forward publicly in the lawsuit and at a January news conference.
The lawsuit includes a list of 40 women who have accused Cosby, 78, of some form of sexual misconduct, including several who have accused the comedian of drugging and assaulting them. Some of the women are identified only by pseudonyms they have given during news conferences with attorney Gloria Allred.
Goins' lawsuit states she met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion, who gave her drink that made her sick and dizzy, the complaint states. Cosby then offered to take her to a room to lie down, where she blacked out, according to the lawsuit.
When she awoke, the lawsuit states Goins was naked, her breasts were wet and sticky and Cosby was lower down on the bed biting one of her toes. The comedian left the room when Goins awoke and confronted him about what he was doing, the lawsuit states.
"Ms. Goins at no time gave Bill Cosby consent to touch her body in any way, let alone in a sexual manner," the lawsuit states.
The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said last week that it is reviewing a police investigation into Goins' allegations for a possible criminal case against Mr. Cosby. There is no timetable for when a decision will be made. Goins met with police detectives in January.
Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker Welcome a BabyWelcome to the family!
Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker are new parents after welcoming their first child on Wednesday, Sept. 30, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple confirmed the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in May, and the Grace and Frankie star later took to Instagram to give a glimpse at her baby bump.
“So this happened … #the3ofus,” Decker, who cradled her belly in the photo, wrote.
From there, the mom-to-be kept her followers up to date on her growing bump, sharing several selfies and snapshots of her pregnancy progress on social media.
Although the couple asked for baby name ideas, they decided to keep the sex of their first child a secret.
“The name is still debatable,” Roddick told PEOPLE in May. “We’re open to any and all suggestions. We’re going to figure it out as we go.”
Cindy Crawford: Daughter Kaia Didn't Think I Was Cool Until Kendall Jenner Mentioned MeYou may be a world-renowed supermodel who hangs with George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin and has whole books devoted to your photoshoots, but your toughest critics — your kids — aren’t going to be impressed. That is, until a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family mentions you.
While appearing on Live With Kelly & Michael to promote her book Becoming, Crawford, 49, fielded the question about whether her up-and-coming model daughter thinks she’s cool.
“You’re just ‘Mom’ to your kids,” Crawford explained. “As she’s becoming more interested in fashion and models, she’ll be like, ‘Oh, Kendall Jenner talked about you, Mom. She looks up to you.’ She’s learning it through history.”
And though daughter Kaia has landed an IMG modeling contract (and the accompany worry from her mom that comes with), Crawford isn’t ready to transplant her to N.Y.C. to pursue a globetrotting career like Crawford (or the current crop of supers, including Jenner and Gigi Hadid). “She’s only 14, so she’s still in school. She’s had a few little opportunities, and fortunately, I get to the be Momager,” Crawford says. “She knows I know what I’m talking about — at least in this one thing, she can’t dismiss me: ‘Oh Mom, you don’t know what you’re talking about.'”
One other perk to having her daughter follow in her footsteps? Kaia is starting to appreciate those ubiquitous lookalike comments. “She used to be like, ‘We look nothing alike!’ But now she figured out maybe that’s not such a terrible thing. She sees it and is growing into it,” Crawford says.
Jenner isn’t the only one who thinks Crawford is the coolest: Reformation’s “Cindy Crawford” sweatshirt has been seen on celebrities as varied as supermodel Karlie Kloss and Coco Rocha, actress Lena Dunham and — yep — even Kaia herself.
Cindy Crawford: 'I Learned How to Be Famous' from Ex-Husband Richard GereCindy Crawford hasn't been one to talk about her ex-husband, actor Richard Gere, but the happily re-married mom of two is now opening up (a little) about their relationship, and explains why she hasn't said more.
"It's not something I want to share," Crawford, 49, says in the latest issue of Porter on her decision not to include Gere in her autobiography Becoming. "If I felt that there was a great good that could come of it, I might have shared more, but I didn't think that there was anything for other people to learn or benefit from. And I wanted to be respectful."
The supermodel divulged to the magazine an important lesson learned from her first husband, however.
"Look, I learned a lot from Richard," she says. "I learned about how to be famous. Again, that's not a universal lesson. And a lot of the personal things, everything else I learned from that, were for me."
The pair were together for four years before calling it quits in 1995. While there was a notable age difference, the couple, who wed in a quickie Las Vegas ceremony in 1991, had different priorities. While Crawford had her focus set on advancing her career, Gere, a Buddhist, was more devoted to spiritual practice. Crawford also said the marriage did not get enough attention.
"We didn't spend enough time together," Crawford said in 1995. "And we're equally responsible for that. We thought it would be okay if we just flew in from Paris to L.A. to get together for a night to see each other. It wasn't."
Crawford married Rande Gerber in 1998 and the pair had two children – Presley Gerber and rising model Kaia Gerber.
Heidi Klum cajoles boyfriend to buy her plastic snailHeidi Klum gently, but persistently cajoled her boyfriend Vito Schnabel buy her a giant plastic snail at the 7th annual Milan amfAR auction, nudging up the price of the sculpture and helping raise a Milan record of $1.6 million for the charity.
"Vito, I thought you were going to buy me the snail!" the model, who chaired the event, pleaded from stage Saturday night, as bidding heated up. A few bids later, the 29-year-old art dealer won the 3-meter (11-foot) snail by the Europe-based Cracking Art Group for 20,000 euro ($22,000). Klum, a mother of four, said she planned to put it in her garden.
The amfAR charity raises money for AIDS research, with the goal of finding a cure for AIDS by 2020. The organization's chairman Kenneth Cole told the crowd that the money raised at the auction would be used to set up an amfAR institute for the cure.
During a break in the auction, actress and model Dakota Johnson introduced Blondie singer Debbie Harry, calling her "my personal perception of cool."
Harry, looking fabulous in a snug black sequin dress and sunglasses with her trademark splash of blonde hair, asked if any of the tailors in the room could help her guitarist, who had ripped his pants. He lifted his leg gamely to show the tear.
As Harry, now 70, belted out "Heart of Glass" and "Call Me," some in the fashion crowd couldn't resist the beat and danced by their dinner tables.
"I have always supported amfAR from the very beginning. I think it is very worthwhile, they've had some tremendous success and the support and the feeling for it is wonderful," Harry told The Associated Press as she arrived.
Also during the auction, Goga Ashkenazi, who is reviving the historic Vionnet brand, paid 22,000 euros for a 1970 photograph of Debbie Harry, hair teased out and eyes upward against a red background, by rock photographer Mick Rock. The print was signed by both Rock and Harry. And Lapo Elkann, whose family controls Ferrari, apparently can't get enough of fast cars: He paid 75,000 euros to race a Ferrari and other high-performance cars in Las Vegas with actress Michelle Rodriquez.
Roberto Cavalli's new creative director, Peter Dundas, arrived with singer Ciara on his arm wearing one of his creations that had just made its runway debut hours before. Ciara did a few takes down the red carpet so photographers could catch the billowing effect of the open-front chiffon skirt with a Baroque big cat print, tied over a mini-skirt and coupled with a suede tank top.
She told the AP that she and Dundas have been long-time friends "so it is just really sweet to also be part of his journey so I feel awesome."

Bar Refaeli Is Married! Supermodel Weds Adi Ezra in Israel—Get Details About Their Wedding!Sorry guys, this babe is officially off the market.
Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli married her businessman fiancé Adi Ezra on Thursday, E! News has confirmed.
The two tied the knot in a beautiful, traditional Jewish and rustic outdoor wedding ceremony in front of more than 300 family members and friends, including Israeli celebs, at the Carmel Forest Spa Resort near Haifa, Israel. Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, a famous rabbi, married the couple.
"The ceremony was so magical, filled with close friends and family and a few notable names and models," a source told E! News. "The locations was stunning. Bar couldn't be happier!"
Refaeli, 30, wore a stunning Chloé bridal gown, E! News has learned.Famous Israeli singer, Shlomi Shabbat, who is also a judge on The Voice Israel, performed his song "The Beginning of the World" as the bride walked down the aisle to the chuppah to meet her groom, the Israeli websites Mako and Walla! reported.
As Ezra stepped on a glass to seal the union, Bruno Mars' 2010 song "Marry Me" was played. Refaeli and later changed into another Chloé dress for the reception, which featured a giant, draped tent lit up by purple spotlights and adorned with icicle lights.
While the ceremony and party seemed to go on seamlessly, there was some drama leading up to the nuptials, which were marked by heavy security. There was constant back and forth between officials on whether the skies above the affair would be open to air traffic, and the arguing continued up until the day before.
The request to close the airspace above their wedding venue was originally granted by aviation authorities last week. However, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz issued an ultimatum to the head of the authority—remove all limitations on flight, or lose your job. Yikes! In the end, only authorized aircraft were allowed to fly. A hot air balloon, a helicopter and several drones were spotted, while one of the latter, used illegally by a photographer, was grounded, Mako reported.
Total estimated cost of Refaeli and Ezra's wedding? At least $330,000, according to the website.
Refaeli took to her Instagram to share some of the festivities that took place prior to their big day, while also showing off her enviable bod. Wearing a thong bottom and long-sleeve tropical pattern top, Refaeli enjoyed some fun in the sun by the pool while wearing a white baseball cap that had a veil attached for what looked to be another bachelorette party.
"This time tomorrow... I'll be dancing in white," she wrote on one photo. Another showed her diving head first with her head gear still on!
Refaeli also celebrated her last days of being single last month, kicking off the party in the Maldives, relaxing at the waterfront tropical paradise and soaking up the sun. While no male strippers or raunchy party favors were spotted, Refaeli did share a fun photo on Instagram of the party in full swing.
This marks Refaeli's second marriage. The supermodel was in her late teens when she wed Arik Weinstein in 2003 and they divorced after two years. Refaeli later dated Leonardo DiCaprio on and off for several years before they split in 2011.
Back in March, E! News confirmed Refaeli and Ezra, the heir to Israeli food importing company Neto ME Holdings, Ltd., were engaged after about a year of dating. Additionally, an insider previously told E! News that the two met through mutual friends, and (added bonus!) Refaeli's family loves Ezra and appreciates how he understands her values. Bar has always wanted to raise her kids Jewish, and the two lovebirds are eager to start a family of their own.
Cheers to the newlyweds!
Cindy Crawford on Her Daughter Kaia's Career: 'Models Are Expected to Be So Tiny and I Worry About That for Her'Supermodel Cindy Crawford knows what it takes to be successful in the fashion industry. But she also knows things have changed since she got her start in the ’80s. And Crawford reveals that she’s worried about her 14-year-old daughter, Kaia, entering the competitive modeling world.
“Today, models are expected to be so tiny and I worry about that for her, because that was never my natural body type and I don’t think it’ll be hers either,” Crawford tells the new issue of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit. “Still, I’ll say to her, ‘Enjoy carbs while you can!’ Kaia’s blossoming into such a beautiful young woman and I really want to let her shine. I don’t want her to feel in competition with me, although I’ll tease her, and say, ‘You have my old hair — give it back!’ Or, ‘Give me back my legs!’ But she’ll be fine… She’s much more together and worldly than I was at her age.”
Crawford covers the latest issue of The Edit shot by Chad Pitman, wearing a plunging lace Balmain jumpsuit. She also stuns in a variety of high-fashion looks from Dion Lee, Emilio Pucci, Sonia Rykiel and more.
In the candid interview, the star explains how being a model in 2015 is a way harder job, that requires more skills than when she was growing up in the industry.
“They had better learn to sing and act, too, because it’s not really enough to just be a model anymore,” she shares. “Anna Wintour was the one who started the trend of putting celebrities on covers and in the big campaigns. Then everyone followed suit, so now they want stars like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift. They want people with a following, and social media has helped because models like Cara [Delevingne], Coco[Rocha] and Gigi [Hadid] can have their own voices and talk to fans directly. There are more pathways available to them than we had.”
The mom of two turns 50 in February, and she says that as she gets older she feels more comfortable in her skin. And she’s proud of the brand she created.
“I started to see myself the way the world saw me. And, fortunately, that brand lined up with the person I really am — it’s not like I’m secretly smashing up hotel rooms,” she quips.
But she still isn’t immune to some of the cyber-bullying that goes on, like the emotional after-effects she felt after an altered image that showed her with cellulite on her stomach went viral.
“Now, if I’m on a beach in a bikini where there might be paparazzi, I’d definitely put a coverup on,” she says. “There are good and bad angles and I don’t want to subject myself to that. It’s hurtful.”
One imperfection she’ll never hide. The famous mole on her face.
“If I ever had it removed, I wouldn’t feel like me anymore,” Crawford shares. “My fans worry about it a lot, you know — to the point where I’m wondering whether The Mole should have its own Twitter account and Instagram page, just like Harry Styles’ ponytail.”
Model Jessica White changes her name to ‘Jypsy’Model Jessica White has mystifyingly changed her name to Jypsy White to boost her career as an actress.
White, who’s been living in LA over the past year and appeared in a music video for John Legend, has been cast as a recurring character in Brandy Norwood’s new BET series, “Zoe Ever After,” scheduled to air next year.
Sources said the cast and crew on set are calling her “Jypsy,” and the name will appear in the credits.
The artist formerly known as Jessica is also working on an album.
Gisele Bündchen Is Releasing a $700 Coffee-Table Book About HerselfIf that special someone in your life is a Gisele Bündchen fan — and you have $700 to spare — then look no further for the perfect holiday gift.
A German publishing company is commemorating 20 years of the world’s highest-paid supermodel’s career with the November release of a limited edition coffee-table book complete with 300 photos — including some discreetly posed nudes! Each of the 1,000 copies will be signed by Bündchen.
The 11 x 15.4 hard cover book is, according to the publisher, Taschen, “personally curated and designed by Gisele in collaboration with [creative director] Giovanni Bianco.”
In a statement, Taschen describes the book thusly: “From her legendary nude portrait by Irving Penn, chosen as the book’s cover, to iconic shots from such industry luminaries as David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott,and Corinne Day, it is a unique artistic presentation of the most famous Brazilian export together with Pele and Senna, and the highest-earning model in the world,” according to the publisher.
Bündchen recently did an interview with Evening Standard in which she shared some of the thoughts (which, presumably, will be similar to the ones found in the book). They include:
•“I can’t get through a day without seeing my kids. When I’m out of town working I Face Time them five times a day. They are growing so fast and I don’t want to miss a thing.”
•“I would love to be an avatar. To live in such harmony with nature and fly with those creatures would be amazing.”
•“My golden rule of style is to wear whatever is comfortable – often jeans and a T-shirt. I like to keep it simple and jeans will never go out of style.”
•“The biggest lesson I’ve learned in life is to let go of things that I cannot change. I embrace whatever challenges come my way.”
Chrissy Teigen Thanks Fans for Support Over the "IVF Business" After Revealing Her Fertility StruggleChrissy Teigen took to Twitter on Friday to thank fans for their supportive words after revealing she and husband John Legend had been battling infertility.
While co-hosting Tyra Presents FABLife this week, the 29-year-old and fellow model Tyra Banks both opened up about their fertility struggles and expressed frustration at people's questions and why they don't have kids. Teigen said she and husband John Legend, 36, had seen fertility doctors.
"Regarding the IVF business, I have never gotten so many kind, encouraging words in my life," Teigen tweeted. "You guys are awesome and appreciated."
"It makes me really happy that by @tyrabanks and I sharing our stories and struggles, a lot of you feel like you can do the same and not feel ashamed!" she added.
On Tyra Presents FABLife, Banks, 41, who's dating photographer Erik Asla, got emotional while talking about her fertility struggle.
"I'm so tired of seeing on my social media, 'Why don't you have kids? Why don't you have kids?'" she said. "You don't know. You don't know what I'm going through. You have no idea."
Banks told People she had undergone in vitro fertilization treatments before to try to conceive.
"I've had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments," Banks said. "It's difficult as you get older. It's not something that can just happen."

John Legend & Chrissy Teigen-Produced Romantic Comedy From ‘Barbershop 3’ Duo Lands At ABC As Put PilotOrdinary People, a single-camera romantic comedy with music elements executive produced by John Legend and his wife, model/TV personality Chrissy Teigen, has been set up at ABC with a put pilot commitment. It will be written by Tracy Oliver (Survivor’s Remorse), who is expanding her writing collaboration with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris to the small screen. The duo, who have co-written together Barbershop 3 and an untitled Girls’ Trip movie at Universal, are reteaming for Ordinary People, with Oliver writing and Barris executive producing.
Said to be loosely inspired by Legend’s relationship with his wife Teigen, Ordinary People explores an interracial couple with very different personalities and big ambitions. Not surprising given Legend’s background, music will play an element in the show. The project is a co-production between ABC Studios, where Barris is under an overall deal, and Legendary Television, where Legend’s Get Lifted Film Company has an overall pact.
Executive producing with Barris, Legend and Teigen are Legend’s Get Lifted partners Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius as well as Principato Young’s Brian Dobbins, Paul Young and Peter Principato.
Legend won an Oscar with Common this year for the song “Glory” from Selma. Teigen is co-hosting the new syndicated talk show FABlife alongside Tyra Banks.
ABC just gave an off-cycle pilot order to another single-camera comedy co-produced by Legendary TV and ABC Studios, Downward Dog.
Oliver and Barris are with PYE. Oliver also is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Kim Stenton. Get Lifted is repped by WME and attorney Nina Shaw. Barris is repped by CAA
Gisele Bündchen Tops Forbes 2015 List of Highest Paid ModelsNot only are these top models beautiful—they're filthy rich!
Forbes announced their annual list of the highest-earning models for 2015. But, who lead the group with the most dollar signs? None other than runway veteran, Gisele Bundchen, who has topped the list for the last nine years. The Brazilian beauty raked in $44 million this year, despite announcing her retirement from the runway in March. Clearly, that job decision has had little to no impact on her earnings—she made just three million more in 2014.
In exchange for the runway, Bündchen continues to book major fashion campaigns with iconic brands like Chanel, Stuart Weitzman and Louis Vuitton in addition to her own projects, such as a line of intimates, According to Forbes, the former Victoria's Secret model has earned over $430 million since the start of her decades-spanning career, majorly out-earning her husband, New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady.
The 35-year-old is tax brackets ahead of the models that come after her, including industry newcomer Cara Delevingne, who makes only $9 million in comparison. Fellow Victoria's Secret angel Adrian Lima fill the third spot on the list, tying at $9 million, also.
Among the highest rankers are a bevy of more Victoria's Secret angels, including Doutzen Kroes, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio at $7.5 million, $5.5 million and $5 million respectively.
Fashion icon Kate Moss, 41, is lower in the rankings at #12 with $4.5 million, while fellow runway legend Naomi Campbell did not make it onto the list at all.
New to the list is Kendall Jenner, who makes her first appearance in the ranks this year with an annual income of $4 million. A sister in the famed Kardashian clan, the 19-year-old is the youngest member of the highest-earning group of women after just a few years in the business and major campaigns with brands like Lancôme and Fendi. Jenner's bestie, Karlie Kloss, also pops up at the #8 spot with just $1 million more than her gal pal.
Congratulations, ladies! You've truly outdone yourselves—and outearned everyone else.
Tyra Banks reveals failed IVF attemptTyra Banks is struggling to get pregnant.
“It’s been really difficult,” the 41-year-old retired model and TV personality told People of undergoing IVF treatments. “I’ve had some not so-happy, traumatic moments.”
Banks, who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition twice, said she’s been planning a family since her early 20s, but always pushed it back.
“Since I was 24, I used to say every year, ‘I will have kids in three years.’ But my business is very entrepreneurial, and I kept trying to find time for it to happen,” she detailed. “Then, when you’re like, ‘I’m just going to do it; it’s not so easy.”
Looking to the future, Banks plans to have lots of kids with her current boyfriend of two years Erik Asla, 50.
“I don’t just want one child,” she said. “I’d love a litter! Maybe they’ll be running the family business. I do want a legacy. But I’ll be retired, chilling, eating. Maybe I’ll be 200 lbs.! But I’ll be happy!”
Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp Spark Romance Rumors After Enjoying Dinner TogetherJust a casual dinner or something more?
That's what fans are asking after photographers captured Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp enjoying dinner together earlier this week.
On Monday night, the duo stepped out for a meal at The Bowery Hotel in New York City that ultimately left the supermodel smiling for the cameras.
Brinkley opted for a casual look with denim jeans, sneakers, a blue scarf and yellow jacket. Meanwhile, the "Jack & Diane" singer chose to wear ripped jeans, a peacoat and boots.
While the pairing may be a surprise to some, something that is far from shocking is Brinkley's gorgeous look at 61 years young.
Although her skincare line with HSN may be partly responsible for her great skin, Brinkley recently opened up to Elle.com about many of her beauty secrets.
"[Start] with a healthy diet—nutrition is an amazing way to contribute to your own well-being, and, of course, exercise and attitude," she explained. "Adopting a really positive attitude can work wonders to adding years to your life, a spring to your step, a sparkle to your eye and all of that."
As for those growing reports that this Monday night out could be a date, it's simply too early to tell. Besides, some still think Mellencamp could have a soft spot for ex-girlfriend Meg Ryan.
"Meg's an angel. She's an angel sent to me, and I'm very happy," he shared on Today. "And, you know, nothing's over ‘til it's over."
Heidi Klum won’t match boyfriend on HalloweenHeidi Klum is the long-reigning queen of Halloween, but there’s one costume she won’t be caught dead in.
“I would never do boring,” she told us during a 30th-anniversary celebration for the Macy’s brand INC during Fashion Week.
“I like to [inspire] people to also come up with great things. If I’m going, I’m 100 percent.”
In years past, the German beauty, 42, has transformed herself into a skin-stripped cadaver and an old lady complete with liver spots, but she’s keeping mum as to her costume this year.
Regardless of what outlandish look Klum reveals on Oct. 31, she won’t let her four kids give their input on attire for her annual costume bash, which is usually held in New York.
“It’s kind of an adult thing,” said Klum. “It’s kind of scary when you see your mom look like she’s 95 years old or she has no skin and it’s all muscles and veins and blood. It’s kind of disgusting. There’s no part that still looks like Mom!”
Klum had coordinated with ex-husband Seal, 52, several times, appearing as his-and-her gorillas in 2011 and matching crows in 2009. But the model won’t be syncing her look to boyfriend Vito Schnabel, 29, for this year’s party.
“I don’t like couples to have a theme,” she told Page Six. “My boyfriend did a fantastic job last year as ‘The Godfather.’” Klum, meanwhile, went as a butterfly.
The “Project Runway” host stays out of Schnabel’s closet every other day of the year as well, insisting he’s independently fashionable.
“He doesn’t need [my style advice]. He has great style,” she added.
How model Sara Sampaio stays swimsuit-readyA post-workout pig-out session just doesn’t fly with swimsuit model Sara Sampaio.
“You can’t spend three hours at a gym and then go eat everything,” she told Page Six before BCBGMaxAzria’s spring 2016 fashion show Thursday morning.
“You have to have a balance.”
The Sports Illustrated beauty, also known for her sexy Carl’s Jr. ad earlier this year, may have her fitness and diet regimens balanced, but she’s searching to achieve just that during New York Fashion Week, which officially kicked off Thursday.
Sampaio might walk in a few shows this week — otherwise it’s a barrage of event appearances and parties, three of which she plans to attend Thursday night. What she’ll wear is still up in the air: “I’m so lazy I’ll probably just wear the same thing to all of them.”
Molly Sims wouldn’t be caught dead wearing short shortsMolly Sims may have bounced back from giving birth to her second child in March in record time, but the 42-year-old supermodel says there are certain things she simply won’t wear now that’s she’s a mom.
“I think as you get older — I hate to say it — versatility and comfort are what’s important,” Sims told us at Rue La La and Cotton’s Fashion Week kickoff party, which she hosted. “Can I layer it? Can I make it work from day to night? My style has changed in that way. It’s a lot more simple.”
Other ways her style has shifted? “I’m definitely not as trendy,” Sims added. “Like super short shorts? Never again.”
She also had some advice for Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid on longevity in the famously cutthroat world of modeling. For one: Never get stuck in a rut.
“I did cut off my hair about seven minutes ago. You have to always be changing,” she said. “You have to have the ability now to be doing a lot of different things.”
Chrissy Teigen on why she’s against hot nanniesChrissy Teigen may be a Sports Illustrated swimsuit siren — but she still has qualms about bringing attractive female staffers into her home.
“No hot nannies, drivers or maids,” proclaimed Teigen at Lauren Conrad’s Fashion Week show Wednesday night. “It’s an ongoing joke in my house,” says the stunner, who is married to R&B crooner John Legend. “I do want to have kids one day, so it’s something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies. I trust John, but you never know with these men.” (And it’s no wonder, given the recent headlines involving Ben Affleck and his Las Vegas romps with his attractive au pair.)
Teigen realized that she had already made one grave mistake. “It’s too late for me, though because I have a hot assistant — she is cute.” But Teigen admits that sometimes, it boils down to more than just looks.
“These days, it doesn’t really matter what you look like — sometimes cabin fever just strikes and men do the do. I have to keep an eye on my assistant now, damn!” she joked. “Christine, you’re done!”
Beverly Johnson forgives Bill CosbyBeverly Johnson has found it in her heart to forgive Bill Cosby.
It’s unlikely that the supermodel, 62, will ever get the chance to offer this sentiment to the disgraced comic whom she has accused of drugging her in the mid-1980s.
“I forgive you,” Johnson said when “Good Morning America” co-host Amy Robach asked her what she’d say to Cosby if given the opportunity.
But as she immediately made clear, that doesn’t mean she’s ready to completely let the once-beloved entertainer off the hook.
“I’m going to leave that to the Justice Department,” she said when Robach asked her what she thought should happen to Cosby. “I just feel that he’s a lightning rod for a much bigger conversation, and that conversation would be the rape culture in America.”
Johnson is one of dozens of women to come forth and accuse Cosby of having assaulted them over the decades.
She first detailed the incident in a first-person essay for Vanity Fair last December, describing how the comedian had her over to his Manhattan brownstone twice to read for a part on “The Cosby Show.” The second time he drugged a cappuccino he made for her, she says, though she was able to escape before he could do worse.
Johnson said she never came forward out of fear of what the very powerful Cosby would do to her in return.
“In the end, just like the other women, I had too much to lose to go after Bill Cosby,” she wrote. “I had a career that would no doubt take a huge hit if I went public with my story.”
The model talked about the incident more as part of New York magazine’s incredibly powerful package about the comedian’s many victims in July.
“The part of it I wasn’t prepared for was the onslaught of women that have been assaulted and them telling me their story because I told mine,” she told the magazine.
Johnson further details the alleged assault in her just-released memoir, “The Face That Changed It All,” which was co-written by Allison Samuels.

Model Who Alleges Bill Cosby Drugged and Assaulted Her Speaks Out: I'll Never 'Get Over' What HappenedModel Chloe Goins says she's still suffering after coming forward with her claim that she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby.
The 24-year-old, whose allegations may be the first to fall within the statute of limitations and lead to a criminal case against the comedian, spoke recently with Dr. Phil McGraw along with four others among more than 40 women who have come forward over the past year accusing Cosby, 78, of drugging and assaulting them.
Many of their stories echo the experiences of the five women who first spoke to PEOPLE in 2006 for an article that helped to break open the scandal, which began after Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, filed a civil suit claiming that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion in 2004. Constand's suit was settled out of court.
On an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil, Goins alleges the comedian drugged and assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.
"It's been really hard, especially with coming out publicly," Goins tells Dr. Phil in a preview of the episode. "Unfortunately, with these types of cases the victim gets really scrutinized and dug into. My life has been completely dug into by people, and it's been a tough road."
The alleged attacks raised by other women go back as far as the 1960s. One accuser, Beth Ferrier, went public in the 2006 PEOPLE interview, saying she believes the comedian slipped something into her cappuccino in the mid-1980s.
"It makes me upset every time I think about it," Goins says in the new clip. "It was a disgusting thing that happened to me, that happened to these other women, and I'll never be able to fully grasp that or get over that."
Goins came forward with the allegations in January. Following her claims, Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, released a statement refuting the allegations, stating that Cosby was in New York on the date that Goins claimed she was assaulted at the Playboy Mansion in California and that Cosby's lawyers would be "providing documentary evidence to the appropriate authorities which conclusively establishes Mr. Cosby's whereabouts on August 9th and for the preceding and succeeding days."
"If he has evidence then we would like to see it, and the LAPD would like to see it too," Goins' lawyer Spencer Kuvin told PEOPLE in January.
Singer has previously shot down accusations against his client, but in a recently released 2005 deposition, Cosby admitted to having given a woman Quaaludes before having sex with her. Singer did not immediately respond to a request for comment but has previously said that claims "about alleged decades-old events are becomingly increasingly ridiculous."
Cosby is scheduled to give his testimony Oct. 9. The deposition will mark the first time he will speak about a sexual-assault allegation against him since a separate case in 2005.
The Dr. Phil episode with Goins will air Thursday, September 10 on CBS. Check your local listings.
Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour host dinner for top polo playersPeter Brant and Stephanie Seymour hosted a private dinner at their Connecticut home Thursday for players taking part in the East Coast Open polo tournament.
Brant honored Peter Busch Orthwein, co-founder of Thor Industries, by naming one of the polo fields at the Greenwich Polo Club in his honor.
The tournament, which started with six teams, ends Sunday with a final high-goal match between Brant’s White Birch and Nic Roldan’s Audi USA, with a number of well-heeled guests expected to attend.
Luke Wilson gave out team awards last week, and Bruce Springsteen’s equestrian daughter Jessica has been a regular at the matches.
Iman won’t be seen at any fashion shows these daysFashion icon Iman tells us she hasn’t been to a runway show since she retired 26 years ago. “Darling, I don’t go to shows,” she told us.
“I haven’t been to a fashion show since 1989. First of all, the industry itself has changed and there’s no reason for anyone to go. It’s all live-streamed. The nature of it has changed [especially when] all of a sudden shows were being held for over an hour for the likes of Paris Hilton. I’m not going to that.”
The supermodel says she prefers to remain low-key with husband David Bowie.
“He likes to go to museums and to shows to see the young musicians he likes. We go to dinner and restaurants with friends. We know how to maneuver the city and have a private life.”
But the 60-year-old beauty keeps up with what’s going on with the young models in the business. “I don’t know Kendall [Jenner], but I do know Karlie [Kloss]. She is well-raised and has the best manners…and Joan Smalls! They have the work ethic and work really hard at it.”
Iman will join Fern Mallis for her Fashion Icons Q&A at the 92nd Street Y on Tuesday.
Karlie Kloss starts classes at NYUKarlie Kloss is ditching the catwalk for classrooms this fall.
The leggy blond, 23, shared a sweet snap of her first day of college at NYU.
“…I haven’t been this nervous in years,” the model shared on Instagram Wednesday, accompanied by the hashtag “#firstdayofschool.”
Kloss hung up her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings this past February, and is now prepared to concentrate on her studies.
As she dished in the September issue of Glamour magazine, “I didn’t want to wait until I was 30, to continue learning and challenging myself in new ways. I am 23 and at a very busy point in my career, but I hope it’s just the beginning. I want to do it all.”
She’s studying at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individual Study.
As for juggling school and work, Taylor Swift’s BFF says it’ll be a “balancing act — but how exciting!”
“I haven’t written a paper in years.”
Cindy Crawford Addresses Her Viral Unretouched Photo: 'That Picture Didn't Reflect What I Saw When I Looked in the Mirror'Cindy Crawford is opening up about the unretouched photo of her that went viral last year.
In a new interview with Elle Canada, Crawford, 49, addresses the photo scandal—which to her surprise turned into something positive—and also gives offers some life advice from her new book, that is being released this fall.
“I know my body, and I know it’s not perfect, but maybe I have a false body image; maybe I think I look better than I do,” she says in the October issue, which features her own the cover in a sexy black dress with thigh high slits. “I think that most women are hard on themselves. We think we look worse than we do. ”
“So I assumed I fell into that category, even though that picture didn’t reflect what I saw when I looked in the mirror—even in the worst dressing-room lighting,” she adds.
Although the image is one the supermodel says she would have preferred not be publicized, she realizes that the photo helped women feel better about themselves, noting the celebration it got online.
“Sometimes, the images that women see in magazine make them feel inferior—even though the intention is never to make anyone feel less,” Crawford says. “So somehow seeing a picture of me was like seeing a chink in the armor. Whether it was real or not isn’t relevant.”
The cover girl also says that she never spoke out about the picture because she “felt really manipulated and conflicted.” For her, speaking out against the image would mean rejecting the people who felt good about it. On the other hand, embracing it felt inauthentic because the photo was not real.
Crawford said the photographer to her, “‘Cindy, I’m going to send you the real one and it’s nothing like that. It’s clear that someone manipulated that image to make whatever was there worse.’ It was stolen and it was malicious,” she continues. “But there was so much positive reaction.”
Despite the social media frenzy that surrounded the viral image, Crawford took a page from her new book, Becoming, and found a teachable moment in the incident.
“I’m a big girl and I can handle it, but I used it as a teaching lesson for my own daughter,” she adds.
The mother of two later took to Instagram to share her own behind-the-scenes footage of her cover shoot. In one photo she dons a black maxi dress with a thigh high slit and cutouts across the chest area.
A video Crawford shared shows the photographer snapping photos of her in another outfit. This time, a little black dress that hits just above the knees, patterned with cutouts and accessorized with elbow-length gloves.
Tyra Banks Cast in black-ish Season 2black-ish just got a little more fierce.

Banks will play a version of herself as Dre’s best friend, series creator Kenya Barris says, in a story based on his own longstanding, real-life friendship with the fashionista.
“I give my wife a lot of credit; I grew up with [Banks], but my wife came into a situation where my best friend from 4 years old is a supermodel,” he adds, laughing. “She’s a very good sport.”
The comedy returns Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 9:30/8:30c. Look for Banks to make her black-ish debut around the middle of the season.
Heidi Klum on Donald Trump Diss: 'In My Book, Every Woman Is a 10'Heidi Klum is using Donald Trump's harsh comments about her appearance as an opportunity to celebrate women.
"Personally, I have no idea what I have to do with the election," Klum told Access Hollywood backstage at America's Got Talent on Tuesday. "Why do I come into play with this election? Like that doesn't make sense to me, to be honest with you."
Trump brought up the 42-year-old model during an interview with The New York Times when questioned over his comments about Fox News host Megan Kelly. The Republican candidate admitted to going "a little bit far" sometimes, but then added, "Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."
In response, the AGT judge posted a humorous video on Twitter where a man in a Trump mask ripped a sign reading "10" off of Klum's top, revealing the number 9.99 on her shirt.
"I was just making light of the situation because it was kind of funny I thought, and I just thought, make it even more funny," Klum told Access Hollywood of her response clip. "But really, the whole entire situation about women is not really funny, you know to put a number on a woman."
The star said, instead, attention should be placed on hardworking women who have both families and careers.
"We juggle so many things and I feel that, you know, women who support their families, who have children, who make their lunches, drive them all over the place, work at the same time, I mean, we do so many things, so in my book, every woman is a 10," she said.
Cara Delevingne Says the Modeling Industry Made Her 'Hate' Her BodyCara Delevingne has been fashion's it girl in recent years, but the British model says she's ditching the world of modeling for the big screen – and she can't get out fast enough.
In a recent interview with London's The Times, the 23-year-old divulged that she is "not doing fashion work any more." The reason? It made her "feel a bit hollow."
"It didn't make me grow at all as a human being," she said. "And I kind of forgot how young I was. I felt so old."
Delevingne shot into the fashion stratosphere in 2011 when she landed a Burberry campaign and posed in a trench coat for a sultry shoot with Eddie Redmayne. But living in the limelight "wasn't a good time."
"I was, like, fight and flight for months. Just constantly on edge," Delevingne said. "It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse.”
And worsen it did. Delevingne said her demanding schedule led to a psoriasis breakout, a skin affliction other stars have also recently spoken about. Describing her struggle with the condition, she said crews were painting her body with foundation "every single show" in order to hide it.
"People would put on gloves and not want to touch me because they thought it was, like, leprosy or something," she said in the interview.
Delevingne also spoke of the sexually suggestive poses she was asked to do when she was just a teen. As a newbie in the industry then, Delevingne said she felt she couldn't say no to nudity or sexual poses.
"I am a bit of a feminist and it makes me feel sick," she said. "It's horrible and it's disgusting. [We're talking about] young girls. You start when you are really young and you do, you get subjected to … not great stuff."
She realizes, though, that this facet of the industry will likely be present in her new line of work. The actress (who starred in John Green's Paper Towns and has four more movies coming out this year), says she has already experienced sexual harassment in the movie business – although it's "worse in modeling." But Delevingne says she doesn't brush these encounters under the carpet.
"I am very good at standing up for myself now, and for other people," she said. "If there is injustice I will flip out. If someone is crossing a line, they will know about it and so will everyone else."
While the star, who boasts famous friends like Rihanna and Taylor Swift (she's a card-carrying member of the singer's Squad), spoke of the perils of making it in the modeling industry, she acknowledges her time in the fashion world prepared her for her new career in acting.
"I am a lot harder than I was and I feel like all of that modeling, life, rejection, everything, was preparation for this, and now that I am doing this I am the happiest person in the whole world."
Supermodel Natalia Vodianova Pens Powerful Facebook Post After Her Disabled Sister Is Allegedly Kicked Out of Russian CafeSupermodel Natalia Vodianova is standing up for her sister—and simultaneously shedding a light on the cruel ways people with disabilities can be treated.
The 33-year-old Russian beauty took to Facebook to pen a passionate post after her 27-year-old sister, who is autistic and has cerebral palsy, was allegedly kicked out of a Russian cafe for "scaring all the customers away."
Per BBC news, Vodianova, who has served as the face of Calvin Klein and has appeared on the cover of every major fashion publication, wrote on social media that her sister Oksana, who was on a walk with her caregiver when they stopped at the cafe, was asked to leave the restaurant by the owner who said, "Leave. You're scaring all our customers away. Go and get medical help for you and your child. And then go out in public."
Vodianova reportedly wrote that the caregiver tried to explain that Oksana had special needs, prompting him to call security to kick them out of the establishment.
"Leave, or we'll call a nuthouse, and an ambulance, and will lock you in a cellar," she quoted one of the guards as saying, according to BBC News.
BBC also reports that Natalia and Oksana's mother was called and the three women were all taken to the police station on suspicion of "minor hooliganism."
Per the U.K.'s Guardian, a criminal investigation has been launched with Russia's investigative committee calling the cafe's alleged actions "an outrageous incident."
While the disheartening occurrence has made a number of headlines, Vodianova, who launched The Naked Heart Foundation in 2004 to support kids with special needs in Russia, said it happens all too often.
"What happened to my sister Oksana ... is not an isolated case," she wrote (per BBC News). "This is unfortunately the reality all families raising children with special needs experience. It's difficult for me to talk about this, but I understand that this is an alarm bell for society that must be heard."
Candice Swanepoel Is Engaged! Model Set to Marry Longtime Boyfriend Hermann NicoliCandice Swanepoel is getting ready to walk...down the aisle that is!
E! News can exclusively reveal that the Victoria's Secret model is engaged to longtime boyfriend Hermann Nicoli! "She couldn't be happier," a source tells us.
The blond bombshell and Nicoli have been together for about 10 years after meeting in Paris when she was just 17-years-old. They've been together so long, in fact, that the 26-year-old model is said to have learned Portuguese from her Brazilian beau.
Even though they're set to spend the rest of their lives together, Swanepoel has opened up to E! News in the past about learning to get through the woes of long distance relationships, even on Valentine's Day!
"You don't have to have your loved one with you. You can go out with the girls, have a good time," the South Africa stunner explained to us last year. "It's also a good excuse if you have a crush on somebody to use that as the day to let them know."
Although the couple keeps their relationship under wraps, Swanepoel will sometimes share pictures on Instagram of herself and her now-future hubby, giving fans a look at their adorable, long-running romance.
Congratulations to Candice and Hermann!
Sun-Kissed! See Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's Sexy Beach PDA(Pic) Things are heating up between Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk – literally.
The pair were spotted kissing and getty cozy while vacationing on Italy's Amalfi Coast earlier this week.
The Wet Hot American Summer actor, 40, and the Russian model, 29, locked lips on the stone beach. Cooper, wearing orange swim trunks, seemed to only have eyes for Shayk, who donned a blue bikini top chicly mismatched with her neon-orange-and-black bottoms.
"They were very playful and loving," an observer tells PEOPLE. "They were completely wrapped up in one another and having a great time."
The actor fiddled with Shayk's barely-there suit as they soaked up the sun. He kept a pair of goggles on his head, seemingly at the ready for their next plunge.
A source tells PEOPLE that the couple stayed at Le Sireneuse, a luxury hotel in Positano. Over the years, the hotel has attracted a slew of famous clientele, including Gwyneth Paltrow and boyfriend Brad Falchuk.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and Cooper have been spotted together often since April, and they were caught kissing several times in May.
The model also attended a performance of Cooper's The Elephant Man in London later that month.
Cooper split from girlfriend Suki Waterhouse, 23, just a few months before linking up with Shayk.
How Ashley Graham Went from Feeling 'Ugly' and 'Fat' to Loving Her CurvesPlus-size model Ashley Graham loves her body – including its "rolls, curves [and] cellulite" – but she didn't always feel that way.
Graham, 27, opened up about how she learned to love herself while speaking to a group of girls at the Pocono Trails Summer Camp, a weight-loss camp that focuses on improving self-esteem.
The model recalled moving to New York and gaining 20 lbs., and hating her own reflection.
"You are so ugly, you are so fat, this is disgusting," she used to tell herself, according to Yahoo! Style. "It was pretty gross. And it hit me one day; I said, 'What am I doing? My mom didn’t raise me like this. My aunt did not raise me like this.' "
So Graham decided to share a different message with herself while looking in the mirror: "I am beautiful, and I do have a great body."
The change in attitude didn't come immediately, but Graham kept repeating the affirmations.
"I didn't believe it for the first few months, but I read in a book that if I actually looked myself in the mirror and said it and meant it every day, it was going to happen," she said. "I started loving my body, I started working out, and taking care of myself."
Soon, she was able to truly love herself.
"I didn't trick myself; I told myself, 'This is changing, you are beautiful, you are worth it,' " said Graham. "No man, no job, no friend is going to tell me who I am – I am going to tell me who I am."
How Beverly Johnson Existed on Coffee, Champagne and Cocaine to Stay at 103 Lbs.: 'I'm Lucky to Be Alive'"I've talked about bulimia, anorexia, depression and losing my daughter in a custody battle but never about drugs," says Beverly Johnson, the legendary model who became the first African-American face on the cover of American Vogue back in 1974. But as she reveals in her new memoir The Face That Changed It All" there were even more secrets, including a drug addiction and a near overdose, about her life in the fast lane. "You laugh and cry but it's my life," says Johnson, 63. "I hope it can inspire. "
In her new book, Johnson, who's recently been back in the spotlight, for saying she was drugged by Bill Cosby in the mid eighties, reveals more bombshells, from barely eating in order to stay super model skinny, to new details about the many famous men in her life.
Back in the early seventies, the modeling agent Eileen Ford first dismissed Johnson (then 5'9" and 125 pounds) with two words: "Too fat." Ford also told her the career of a model in front of a camera wouldn't last more than five or six years. Johnson would prove her wrong – on both counts.
To become a size zero, Johnson nearly starved herself until she weighed just 103 pounds. "I was eating nothing, zero," she says. "I drank black coffee, a sip of broth if things got tough, and in the evening, a glass of champagne as a pick me up. We didn't even drink water. We thought it was was fattening." One day, she began having convulsions in the back seat of a taxi and had to grab a bag of peanut M&M's to jolt her blood sugar back. Asked how she survived those years, she says, "You didn't have to think."
"The skinner you were, the more fabulous you were," says Johnson. "Drug use was encouraged. It was like 'Oh my god, you are chiseled to the bone.' All of the things you needed to be a high class model: high cheekbones, bright eyes, that was all provided by the drugs. It was like being offered a drink. It was one of the perks. People around us always had it."
Johnson became a cocaine addict, and at one point, was using one gram a day. "We thought it was glamorous and expensive," she says "but it was all a delusion."
Still, the parties continued. One memorable night at Studio 54 lasted three days. "People were walking around naked, fornicating," she recalls. "There were drugs everywhere. When I walked out of there, I thought 'Never again.'"
In 1983, she suffered a near overdose. "It felt like my heart was going to come out of my chest," she says. "You think you just want to lie down but that's when you die. My boyfriend threw me in the cold shower, shoes and all, and made me drink a whole carton of milk and I stabilized." Looking back, she says "I'm lucky to be alive."
By then, Johnson was at her lowest point, nearly broke, out of work, and battling her soon to be ex-husband music producer Danny Sims over the custody of their daughter Anansa, then a toddler. Their volatile 18 month long marriage ended when he stole her modeling profits, hit her and threatened her with gun. "I'd never been so afraid my entire life," she says. With nowhere to turn, she entered a twelve step program in the early eighties and finally got clean: "I realized drugs could kill you and my daughter would not have a mother if I didn't get help."
Her memoir also features more light hearted moments and sexy tales of the many famous men in her life from Eddie Murphy to Chris Noth to tennis ace Arthur Ashe. "If we married, we would have been the Beyonce and Jay-Z of our day," she writes about her fling with Ashe. She also reveals her unusual friendship with Michael Jackson who would call her for makeup tips to cover up his acne.
But it was coming forward to speak out about Bill Cosby that made Johnson realize "I have to use my voice for good."
"I didn't plan on that being part of my legacy," she says. "It's not about fashion. It was ugly but it will forever be part of who I am."
While representatives for Cosby have not commented specifically on Johnson's allegations, his attorney has denied previous accusations of sexual misconduct by his client. "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40 or even 50 years ago have escalated past the point of absurdity," Singer said in a statement late last year.
Now busier than ever with her lifestyle line, which features mineral makeup, bags and a line of hair extensions, and a new reality TV show in the works, she says, "There's no such thing as retirement."
As for her feelings on aging, she puts it this way: "My soul is aging gracefully but everything else must stop!"

Chrissy Teigen: John and I ‘Love Working Together in the Kitchen’For model Chrissy Teigen and performer John Legend, love is a many-blended thing.
While putting finishing touches on her cookbook (to be published by Clarkson Potter in April), Teigen, 29, admits she has taken liberties with some of her husband’s recipes.
“I am using John’s fried chicken and mac and cheese recipes yet putting my own mark on them,” Teigen, 29, told PEOPLE while hosting Captain Morgan’s Sunday Rum Bash at Mondrian South Beach and introducing the company’s new pineapple, coconut and grapefruit flavors.
“For one thing, I am making the mac and cheese much creamier. But we love working together in the kitchen!”
Teigen’s cookbook, still unnamed, will combine Thai, American and Norwegian recipes, mostly culled from a lifetime of enjoying fine food from around the world.
“I will use some of my mom’s great recipes I loved while growing up in Thailand and some of my dad’s heavier dishes from Norway, where he is from,” she said.
The foodie, who is preparing to be part of the new ABC syndicated talk show FABLife (Fun and Beautiful), debuting Sept. 14, is also adding a custardy French toast casserole to her cookbook.
And while cooking is a favorite form of entertainment for the happy couple—who married two years ago in Lake Como, Italy—they also love to stay in bed and watch “bad TV.”
“It’s so much easier than I thought to be married,” she said. “John and I are really happy. We watch marriage reality shows and don’t get it when other people aren’t happy.”
Teigen said even though they are both busy with work from morning till night, they get along well because they exist on the same vibe.
“We have fun together and think alike,” Teigen continued. “We have the same aesthetic for vacations, and we like to take that time to relax.”
The couple just returned from the Amalfi Coast and Sicily, where they admired the beauty, and of course, the food. Now they are looking for a house to buy in Los Angeles with a great kitchen.
“But someday I hope to make enough money to buy us the place in Lake Como where we were married,” she said. “That is my dream.”
Hilary Rhoda and Sean Avery set a wedding dateTop model Hilary Rhoda and former Ranger Sean Avery have set a date for their fall wedding in the Hamptons.
Rhoda was overheard saying they’ll tie the knot on Oct. 10 during last Saturday’s dinner for fashion line Solid & Striped at Montauk’s Surf Lodge.
As Page Six previously revealed, the pair will say “I do” at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, Long Island.
As for the honeymoon, Rhoda hinted that she’s been thinking about Greece, where she’s never been.
Paris Hilton claims she’s never had any plastic surgeryParis Hilton claims to be all natural.
“I’ve never done any [plastic surgery] in my life,” the 34-year-old heiress shared with New You magazine. “People love making things up.”
A tabloid fixture since she was just a teen, the sometime DJ credits mom Kathy Hilton, 56, for her flawless glow.
“I am very lucky that I listened to my mom through my young age,” Hilton explains. “She told me to stay away from the sun, so my friends would be frying in the sun every day and now they all look much older and all have Botox.”
While Hilton has yet to jump on the Botox bandwagon, she dishes that her own dermatologist isn’t pressuring her into anything either.
“I even asked my dermatologist if I should do [Botox], and he’s like ‘I refuse to do it to you … your skin is so perfect. I will not do it to you until you need it, and I don’t know if you ever will.'”
Though the former “Simple Life” star has friends who have gone under the knife, Hilton says she’s satisfied in her own skin.
“I have nothing against it; all my friends have done everything — boobs, nose, chin, cheeks. I live in Hollywood, so I’m used to seeing it. It’s just that I’ve never wanted to do it.”
‘America’s Next Top Model’ may be ending soon, says Tyra Banks“America’s Next Top Model” returns Wednesday (Aug. 5) to The CW, with another cycle of both men and women vying for the top prize.
At the 2015 TCA summer press tour, executive producer, host and former supermodel Tyra Banks tells Zap2it that “maybe the boys” are slightly stronger than the female contestants in Cycle 22.
She also says she loves “ANTM’s” legacy, but it may not be around much longer.
“‘America’s Next Top Model’ was the first fashion-based competition reality show and then we had these other copycats come and there’s been about 12 or 13 copycats in America. Every time there was a copycat we would try to get better and better,” says Banks, adding, “but we may be coming to an end soon. We shall see. It’s only so long that the show can last.”
“It’s nice to walk away from something before it walks away from you … leave when people remember you at your height.”
“America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 22 premieres Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner are a new Hollywood coupleGigi Hadid played Hollywood matchmaker, and apparently it paid off for Kendall Jenner and Nick Jonas.
Us Weekly reports that Joe Jonas’ girlfriend reintroduced Kendall and Nick in an attempt to get them to date and thus create the most epic double dates ever. “They are all going to end up hanging out regardless, so it seems like a simple situation, which could be a lot of fun,” Us’ source says of the new couple.
According to the site, this courtship is still in the early days — as in they’re still just flirting and texting each other and are looking to keep things under wraps. That makes sense for Nick, 22, since he recently split with his longtime girlfriend Olivia Culpo.
Neither Jonas nor Jenner have publicly responded to this new dating rumor.
Mariel Hemingway: 'I Want to Break the Stigma of Mental Illness'For many years, the story of Mariel Hemingway's family has been intertwined with mental illness, addiction and suicide. "My family has had a long struggle with mental illness," Hemingway, 53 tells PEOPLE. But the Manhattan actress has found healing by speaking out against the stigma long associated with it.
"It's important to work towards erasing the stigma," she says. "Everybody knows somebody who suffered some mental illness, suicide, addiction or bipolar."
The 53-year-old granddaughter of author Ernest Hemingway has been outspoken about her family's dark past. And in this week's PEOPLE, she talks about her personal connection to the Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation, which is focused on finding a test for an early diagnosis of bipolar disorder.
Ryan Licht Sang, who was bipolar, was the only son of Joyce and Dusty Sang. One day in 2004, "he stopped taken his medication because he didn't like the side effects, and went into a manic episode," says Hemingway. "After being awake for days, he self-medicated and accidentally overdosed."
"It's tragic when it's misdiagnosed or when it's not diagnosed at all and you just think you have a horribly misbehaved and rebellious child who is actually suffering," Hemingway tells PEOPLE. "That's why this foundation is so important."
Hemingway's eldest sister Muffet, 65, is bipolar and schizophrenic. "My sister was in and out of hospitals for years," she says. "She wasn't diagnosed until she was 17 or 18. My WASPy parents would say she is going off for college and then we'd pick her up at a state hospital. I just wondered why there were bars on the window."
Hemingway also believes her late sister Margaux "suffered from bipolar disorder but was never properly diagnosed," she says. "She was diagnosed with addiction and had been drinking since she was 14." (In 1996, Margaux died from an apparent drug overdose.)
In 2014, Hemingway met Ryan Licht Sang's parents at a mental health forum in Chicago. They had been neighbors with Hemingway's father in Palm Beach, Florida, and the actress discovered she shared Ryan's birthday, furthering their strong bond. "[Hemingway's] passion to spread the word to reduce the stigma in the field of mental illness is well known, and the stories of our two families just clicked for all of us," Joyce Licht Sang tells PEOPLE.
Today, the actress, who recently wrote a book about her family's history, Out Came the Sun: Overcoming the Legacy of Mental Illness, Addiction, and Suicide in My Family, says, "If you can figure out what someone is suffering from earlier on, it would help so many families. Then you can figure out the right medication and a healthy lifestyle and hopefully save a life."
Chrissy Teigen Talks Wanting a Family, John Legend, How She Balances Chicken Wings on Her Butt & More!Chrissy Teigen always has a lot to say, so you could imagine all the gems she shared when at the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour, where she was promoting her upcoming show FABLife alongside Tyra Banks.
Obviously, one of the things fans wanted to know is whether or not we're going to see some familiar faces on the upcoming daytime show—like hubby John Legend or even Chrissy's mom, Vilailuck Teigen.
"That's actually a dream of hers and mine. Especially her. Let me tell you, she is a star now. She wants a publicist, everything," Teigen quipped, adding that it wouldn't be a far stretch to see Legend on there, too.
"We're so out as a couple and happy to be together that it wouldn't be unnatural for him to be on the show and make an appearance or even sit in the audience," she told the crowd, "For me, this is my family now and he comes to Lip Sync Battle all the time, my dogs, I made sure my dressing room was hit for the animals. It's my home now."
Speaking of home, Chrissy is no stranger to traveling the world with her famous hubby, but the celeb explains that she's come to a point in her life where she's ready to settle down and start a family.
"I'm aging. I love bouncing around. I love going on tour with John, we've considered ourselves bicoastal for 10 years now. It's definitely weird and different to have a home now," she said. "I'm ready to have a family and call Los Angeles my home."
When she's not taking on hosting duties, Teigen is in the kitchen cooking up what we can only assume are more delicious dishes, even if she is her toughest critic. "There are plenty of times when I don't love something. John always thought my book should be called The Insecure Chef because I would make something and then it would be in the trash," she admits.
"He would honestly reach in and taste it and be like, ‘Why did you throw this away? I can't believe it!' I make mistakes all the time. Trust me, I'm like everyone else. I didn't go to school. Cooking and watching TV is like my happy space."
And as for her latest feat (you know, when she balanced a plate of chicken wings on her booty), Chrissy confesses it's not as hard as it looked. "When you have no butt, it's much easier! That was my hip, it was just a flat space."
Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker list home for $3.4MFormer top-ranked tennis player Andy Roddick recently listed his Los Angeles home, a modernist ode to glass and steel tucked between trees with a view worthy of a millionaire.
Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champ and wielder of one of the most lethal serves in tennis history, lived in the home with his wife, Brooklyn Decker, an actress and model best known for her appearances in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit editions.
The 4,910-square-foot home is listed for $3.4 million and located in the star-studded Cheviot Hills neighborhood. It has five bedrooms and features pristine white walls and enormous steel-lined windows that look over the trees and neighborhood beyond. The master suite, recently updated, features a glass shower, tiled soaking tub and views of its own.
In the kitchen, gleaming white cabinets and dark wood flooring evoke a modern take on Mid-Century style.
Elevator service connects the home’s three stories, leading to an “outdoor living room” on the upper level — the perfect place to watch the sunset over Century City.
Why Karlie Kloss is starting college at 23Karlie Kloss isn’t about to let work get in the way of her dreams.
In the fall, the Victoria’s Secret Angel, 23, is going to trade her wings for books when she starts attending classes at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individual Study.
“I didn’t want to wait until I’m 30 to continue learning and challenging myself in new ways. I am 23 and at a very busy point in my career, but I hope it’s just the beginning. I want to do it all,” the model told Glamour.
Used to being at the top of her field, Kloss is both nervous and excited about her new adventure.
Like most kids starting college, my major is still ‘undecided.’ Next year will be a big balancing act — but how exciting! I haven’t written a paper in years, so I may be calling you [referring the interviewer, her friend Derek Blasberg] for homework help,” she told the magazine.
While it’s not the only reason she’s headed to college, the Taylor Swift pal also realizes she’s a role model for girls and takes that seriously, which is why she set up the Kode With Karlie scholarship, which seeks to introduce young girls to the world of computer coding.
“I’m still wrapping my head around it; I do feel a responsibility to be an example for young women in general,” she said. “That’s what Kode With Karlie is about: supporting girls to try coding even if they’re not interested in being a programmer. If I can inspire one girl to try it, I’ll be happy.”
Naomi Campbell Sentenced to Six Months in Prison for Assault on Paparazzo in SicilyNaomi Campbell was convicted of assault by a Sicilian court Friday for scratching a paparazzo's eye in August 2009.
The model was given a six months suspended prison sentence, according to Britain's Telegraph, which her lawyer has vowed to appeal.
"We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident," attorney Guido Carlo Alleva said in a statement obtained by E! News. "Due to the ongoing legal process, we cannot discuss the matter further at this time."
Per the Telegraph, the incident occurred when the photographer, Gaetano Di Giovanni, was snapping pictures of the model with her then-boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin, as they stepped off their boat in the Sicilian town of Lipari. Di Giovanni took photographs of the couple as they strolled through the narrow streets and did some sight-seeing, when Campbell hit him with her purse.
The presumably designer handbag ended up scratching Di Giovanni's eye, causing him to seek medical treatment and take three days to recover from the injury.
"I had just started taking some shots of her and I did not expect such a violent reaction," he said in 2013, after Campbell was ordered to stand trial in Italy, according to the Telegraph.
The model's attorneys then reached an agreement with the photographer and he withdrew the charges; however, according to Italian news agency Ansa, prosecutor Francesco Massara ordered the trial to go ahead in the public interest due to the intensity of the charges.
Of course, this wasn't the first time Campbell had a run-in with the law.
Back in 2007, she famously (and fashionably) served a five-day community service sentence in New York City after pleading guilty to reckless assault for throwing her cellphone at a housekeeper.
She was also fined $363 to cover the housekeeper's medical expenses and was ordered to complete an anger management course.
Martha Hunt Gushes About 'Role Model' BFF Taylor Swift: 'I Think We Need More People Like Her'Victoria's Secret Angel Martha Hunt just can’t keep quiet about her gal pal Taylor Swift.
In an interview with Hamptons" magazine, Hunt – a certified member of Swift's Squad – gushed that the "Bad Blood" singer is one of her role models.
"Taylor Swift – I can't say enough good things about her," the 26-year-old model said. "I admire her so much as a person and as a role model for young women."
Hunt played "HomeSlice" in Swift's Bad Blood video and strutted her stuff on stage during Swift's 1989 tour – not to mention her Instagram-chronicled friendship with the singer. So it's no surprise that when asked who her role models and heroes are, the interview took a Swift turn.
"I think we need more people like [Swift;] people who want to bring women together and not oversexualize themselves," the North Carolina native told the magazine.
She added: "Plus, she's talented, and she's just the best."
Hunt recently told PEOPLE that the reason Swift attracts so many friends is her "infectious personality."
It sure seems that way, as Swift's squad has racked up numerous names like Lena Dunham, Gigi Hadid, Empire's Serayah and more – many, many more.
Squad status and Swift aside, Hunt discussed a battle she's dealt with for years: living with scoliosis.
"It has definitely made walking the runway a little more of a challenge for me," she said, "but I'm just so thankful that I've been able to walk runways and achieve so much, even with this condition."
Cindy Crawford developing TV series about ’80s modeling agenciesCindy Crawford. Beloved supermodel of the late ’80s/early ’90s. George Michael music video muse. Super Bowl commercial fave. Infomercial star. And now TV Producer.
Thanks to the TV gods and a solid development move by NBC, Crawford is adding the title to her long list of admirable accomplishments. Variety reports that Crawford is developing a drama for NBC set in the 1980s in/around the modeling wars between the Ford Modelling Agency and Elite Model Management. We can already picture all of the gorgeous drama now. And the clothes. And the hair. And the shoulder pads.
The series, currently titled “Icon” and in the very early stages of development, will be completely fictionalized and will not reference the names of models or other figures from the time period. Crawford supposedly will not appear in the show and is currently only serving as executive producer alongside Anne Heche, James Tupper and Robin Bissell (“The Hunger Games”).
We’ll see about that, Cindy. If the show’s a hit and the fans demand it, you have to at least do a cameo, right? And/or enlist fellow supermodels to appear? Paging Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Tatjana Patiz for some kind of wink-and-nod episode dedicated to models in music videos and George Michael’s “Freedom 90.”
‘American Horror Story: Hotel': Naomi Campbell will face off with Lady Gaga“American Horror Story” is returning in the fall with its fifth season, subtitled “Hotel.” If you were a fan of Seasons 1 and 2, “Hotel” might be right up your alley, since it returns the focus to being on a place rather than a group of people.
Naomi Campbell is the latest victim to join the FX series. TVLine reports she’ll go “toe-to-toe” with Lady Gaga as a fashion editor who “pays the ultimate price for her critiques.” Campbell reportedly also will have scenes with Angela Bassett during her multi-episode arc.
Elle Macpherson Shares $36 Beauty Must-Have, Talks Turning 50 and Reveals How She Maintains Famous Hot Bod!Elle Macpherson is getting candid about her beauty regime.
In a new interview with Redbook, the 51-year-old supermodel reveals her top beauty secrets in addition to sharing how she stays in such phenomenal shape (you certainly don't get a nickname like "The Body" by sitting on the couch all day!).
"I love being outdoors and doing sports like swimming, biking, and hiking," the mother of three says, adding, "As I've gotten older, I've increased my joy factor. Even if I'm in New York City or London, I'll choose to walk rather than exercise in a gym."
Because of her affinity for being outside, the Sports Illustrated beauty says she's very diligent about sun protection. "I wear broad-spectrum SPF daily. La Roche-Posay makes good sunscreens, and I also like Invisible Zinc, which is a physical sunscreen. And I wear a cowboy hat whenever I'm at the beach."
Macpherson is also very conscientious when it comes to taking care of her skin. "I exfoliate my face every day and my body twice a day—I shower in the morning and the evening," she shares. "I use a body brush, which boosts circulation, and I always moisturize afterward. If I'm at the beach, I'll just blend some moisturizer with sand and rub the mix all over my body, then rinse off in the ocean."
As for her enviable mane?
"I shampoo and condition every two to three days, and I usually air-dry my hair because I'm not very skilled with a blow-dryer!" she says. "When I go swimming, I'll slather on a hair mask, then put on a swim cap. And in the summer, I often walk around with wet-looking hair that has a treatment in it—I think that keeps it healthy. I also like a good beach spray to create some texture; Unite makes a nice one."
When it comes to her everyday makeup look, Macpherson says she's "not very precise," and simply smudges on a little bit of black liner in addition to lip liner and gloss.
And while it may be difficult to believe the Australian stunner turned 50 (!) last year, the blond beauty seems to be embracing her age.
"I feel very secure within myself—strong, happy, and motivated. Hopefully I've gained some wisdom over the years," she says. "And I have a sense of humor about my mistakes. I've accepted that I don't always get it right, but it's not the end of the world!"
In addition to spilling her beauty secrets, Macpherson also shares her must-have products, which include Burberry Fresh Glow Blush in Orange Poppy No. 21, $38; Essie nail polish in After School Boy Blazer, $8.50; Unite Beach Day Texturizing Spray, $29.95; RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up, $36; The Super Elixir, $135 for 10.5 oz and Guerlain Vétiver eau de toilette, $72 for 50 ml, which she's been wearing "for 30 years."
Plus-Size Model Ashley Graham Wants to Be the 'Curvier Version' of Heidi KlumAshley Graham has already made a name for herself in the modeling industry, but she hopes to eventually become one of the greats.
"I definitely look up to Kathy Ireland, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Cindy Crawford," the plus-size model, 27, told website The Coveteur. "I've watched their careers and they have just blossomed into extraordinary and amazing things. I can't wait to be the curvier version of all of them."
While Graham – who has modeled lingerie for Lane Bryant and landed a bikini ad in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue – faced adversity in the beginning of her career, she believes the fashion industry is changing.
"I've faced criticism my whole career," she said in the interview. "It's come from fans, it's come from agents, and it's come from other models. But I think that it's all a matter of how you handle it and I turned it all into a positive thing. Now the industry has totally changed and it's not as much about size anymore – everyone's really jumped on the bandwagon of not letting size be the defining factor of determining what beauty truly is."
Even when she began modeling, Graham never felt pressure to change her size.
"I got told at the very beginning, when I was about 12 years old, 'If you lost a ton of weight, you could be a major model' and my mom just looked at the lady, started laughing and said 'We won't be doing that,' " she recalled. "That gave me so much confidence because if my mom didn't think I needed to lose weight, then obviously I didn't need to."
"I had an agent wave money in my face and say, 'If you go from a size 18 to a 14, you will make all of this money and more,' and I still didn't even have the gumption to lose the weight," she continued. "I said, 'I don't care what people think about me, I'm not going to change the way I look for clients, I just want to do what makes me happy and be happy doing it.' "
While Graham did drop down to a size 14/16, she lost the weight for herself, and not due to any external pressure.
"My weight hasn't gone up or down [since then]," she told The Coveteur. "I've regulated it now for about seven years, and it's due to the fact that I'm happy and confident in who I am, and I'm not letting other people dictate where my career is going based on the size of my hips."
Chrissy Teigen Says If She Were Single, She'd Be on TinderChrissy Teigen and hubby John Legend are happily married – but if she were single, she would have a profile on Tinder.
"I would be all over Tinder if I was single," she told PEOPLE. "I'm actually on Tinder just for fun, and I think it's hysterical."
The model says she's tried out both male and female profiles on the dating app, and the experiences are different.
"As a boy, you just get really naughty things, but as a girl, everyone likes your photo. Everybody."
Her Lip Sync Battle partner, LL Cool J, said he also thinks he'd be on Tinder. Both said they didn't really date when they were younger. "I met somebody and we would just jump into a real relationship immediately," Teigen said.
"[Tinder] is funny! People are very cocky, I will tell you that much," Teigen continued. "They really feel themselves on there."

Cindy Crawford Dishes on the Neck Workout That Keeps Her Skin Looking Fresh, Favorite Hair Tricks & More—Get the Scoop!Supermodel Cindy Crawford is doling out her beauty shortcuts and product must-haves to Into the Gloss, and some are quite handy.
"After decades of working with some amazing makeup artists and hairstylists, I can definitely say with confidence that I've learned a few tricks. Sharing them is the best part," she wrote. (Lucky for us!) And it turns out that the brunette bombshell incorporates hair and skin-saving routines into her everyday workouts.
"I'm a huge fan of double-duty beauty—because good things take time, and none of us have enough of it! I try to include beauty treatments into my workouts. For instance, since I know I'll be washing my hair right after I exercise, I put a pre-wash conditioner in my hair—especially on my ends," she said.
Another Cindy-approved trick? Sleeping with a hair-sparing loose updo.
"Sadly, my hair isn't as strong as it used to be," she admitted. "Too many years of abuse and color have left it brittle at the ends. If I do take the time to blow out my hair (or, even better, get a blowout), I want it to last more than that day. I found that if I sleep in a loose topknot, when I wake up in the morning, my hair is still smooth and has the added benefit of having some pretty waves as a result."
Cindy also uses neck exercises to keep her décolletage looking as fresh and youthful as possible: "Over 20 years ago, I saw a woman doing exercises for her neck. She explained that if you keep those muscles toned, it helps preserve the line of your jaw. You can do these exercises anywhere, but I usually do them as part of my workout," she shared.
And with skin like that, you better bet there's some serious exfoliation going on. Crawford admits to "brushing" her body to keep her skin baby-smooth, and also adds that there fringe benefits that include stimulating the "lymphatic system, reduc[ing] cellulite, and decongest[ing] your skin."
We imagine that before Cindy shares these secrets with the world, she passes them along to look-alike daughter Kaia Gerber, who recently signed with IMG models and landed a CR Fashion Book editorial.
Judging by Cindy's ageless beauty, Kaia has a long career ahead of her (especially if she follows mom's tips and tricks!).

Cindy Crawford on losing her brother to cancer as a childCindy Crawford opened up on losing her brother to leukemia when he was just 3 years old. The model tells Oprah Winfrey how the tragedy changed her family.
“I think when my parents first told us that my brother was sick, we didn’t really understand what it meant,” Crawford says in a preview for “Oprah’s Master Class.”
She was 8 when her brother Jeff, then 2, was diagnosed. “They didn’t use the word ‘cancer.'”
Crawford recalled taking two-hour drives almost every day to and from the hospital while her brother was receiving radiation treatment. Her parents made the decision to put their son in an experimental program in hopes it would save his life. Unfortunately, the treatment did not work and Jeff died at age 3.
“My mother said she found him sitting in his room. He was sitting at his little table, and she said, ‘What are you doing?’ And he said, ‘I’m praying.’ And she said, ‘What are you praying about?’ He said, ‘So that when I die, you’ll be OK.’ As a mom now, I can’t imagine hearing your child say that,” Crawford shared.
“Oprah’s Master Class” airs on OWN.
Christie Brinkley and Donny Deutsch get flirty for the camerasDonny Deutsch was spotted canoodling with Christie Brinkley in Central Park Thursday, but it was all for TV.
The former model was grabbing the 50-something ad king’s behind as they walked around in flirtatious conversation. But it’s not a reaction to her ex Billy Joel’s July 4 wedding.

Supermodel Nykhor Paul Blasts Racism in Fashion Industry: I'm ''Tired of Apologizing for My Blackness''Supermodel Nykhor Paul is calling it like it is.
The 25-year-old South Sudanese beauty, who has walked in shows such as Vivienne Westwood, Balenciaga and Rick Owens, took to Instagram on Monday to post a heated rant aimed at makeup artists who are unequipped to work with women of color while highlighting the lack of diversity in the fashion industry.
"Dear white people in the fashion world! Please don't take this the wrong way but it's time you people get your s--t right when it comes to our complexion!" the model began. "Why do I have to bring my own makeup to a professional show when all the other white girls don't have to do anything but show up wtf!"
She continued, noting that there are a number of makeup brands that cater towards black women, so there is really no excuse for being unprepared.
"Don't try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more. There's so much options our there for dark skin tones today. A good makeup artist would come prepare and do there research before coming to work because often time you know what to expect especially at a show!
"Stop apologizing it's insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn't help, seriously! Make an effort at least!" she wrote. "That goes for NYC, London, Milan, Paris and Cape Town plus everywhere else that have issues with black skin tones. Just because you only book a few of us doesn't mean you have the right to make us look ratchet."
She concluded by saying she's fed up with the racism in the fashion industry.
"I'm tired of complaining about not getting book as a black model and I'm definitely super tired of apologizing for my blackness!!!!" she said. "Fashion is art, art is never racist it should be inclusive of all not only white people, s--t we started fashion in Africa and you modernize and copy it! Why can't we be part of fashion fully and equally?"
Paul isn't the first who's spoken out about racial inequality in the cut-throat world of modeling. Jourdan Dunn, who, in January, became British Vogue's first solo black cover model in 12 years, previously told The Edit that she's lost out on jobs because clients "didn't want any more black girls" and even recounted an incident in which a makeup artist refused to touch her because of her race.
Beverly Johnson Speaks Out About New Bill Cosby Revelations: 'No One Has the Right to Another's Body or Sexuality'Beverly Johnson, one of the first African-American supermodels, who claimed last December that she had been drugged by Bill Cosby in the mid-1980s when she met him for an alleged audition, tells PEOPLE that the latest revelation – that he admitted in a 2005 deposition to having seven prescriptions for Quaaludes with the intent of using them for sexual encounters – is another reminder of the importance of speaking out.
"It is unfortunate the amount of proof required to make a woman's voice valid," Johnson, 62, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
"In the past year of this conversation around Bill Cosby's actions against many women, including myself, the most unfortunate thing is the lesson we are teaching children about the worth of a woman's body," says Johnson, who in 1974 became the first African-American model to appear on the cover of American Vogue. "I don't know if every woman who has been sexually attacked and comes forward will be one of the many – or one who stands on her own. But as this conversation on Cosby's actions continues, I hope that anyone with kids is thinking of teaching them that no one has the right to another's body or sexuality."
"Not every attacker is going to be someone who is lurking in the alley or an unattractive character," continues Johnson, the mother of model Anansa Sims and a grandmother of three. "It is as likely that someone who is charismatic and successful will decide to do something heinous."
"We must ask ourselves if the lesson we want to teach our kids is that, again, a woman's voice and body are not valuable or precious or valid," says Johnson, author of an upcoming memoir, The Face That Changed It All. "I know my truth, and I hope for a society that is sensitive to the protection of women, regardless of the stakes. I hope, as we live in a time in our nation where conversations on race, sexuality and gender are at hand, that we have the difficult conversations with our friends and family so that it is commonplace to defend everyone's right to be protected from all predators, no matter their status or accomplishments."
Johnson, one of more than 40 women who have come forward, concludes, "I hope that the lesson is that rape and any form of sexual assault is wrong, that silencing women's voices is wrong and that protecting a predator over the assaulted for the sake of protecting power is devastating."
Cosby's lawyer, Martin Singer, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but on Nov. 21 he issued this statement regarding the allegations against the comedian:
"The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40 or even 50 years ago have escalated past the point of absurdity."

Djokovic, Serena, Sharapova star on Wimbledon's day oneNovak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova take centre stage as Wimbledon gets underway on Monday while Lleyton Hewitt hopes for a long goodbye on his 17th and final appearance at the All England Club.
World number one, top seed and defending champion Djokovic plays his first tournament since Stan Wawrinka ended his latest bid to win a French Open and complete a career Grand Slam in Paris three weeks ago.
The Serb, who was also Wimbledon champion in 2011, has never lost in the first round at the tournament but he faces a tough opener against world number 33 Philipp Kohlschreiber who made the quarter-finals in 2012.
Djokovic holds a 6-1 career advantage over the 31-year-old German.
Kohlschreiber's only victory against Djokovic came at the 2009 French Open and the Serb has won the last five on the spin, including a straight sets victory in the US Open fourth round last year.
But the champion is wary of the potential pitfalls as he opens play on Centre Court at 1200GMT.
"When you see Kohlschreiber in the first round, you don't look any further in the draw," said eight-time major winner Djokovic.
A victory for the Serb could give him a second round match-up against 2002 champion Hewitt, the last man outside of the big four of Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray to win the Wimbledon title.
Hewitt, 34, will be playing the All England Club for the final time before retirement after next year's Australian Open.
The former world number one, who made his All England Club debut back in 1998, starts against 33-year-old Finn Jarkko Nieminen, a quarter-finalist nine years ago.
Women's top seed Serena Williams, the five time champion and bidding for a calendar Grand Slam, gets her 16th Wimbledon started on Court One against Russia's Magarita Gasparyan, the world number 113.
Moscow native Gasparyan has only appeared in the main draw of a Grand Slam once -- losing in the first round at the French Open this year. She has also yet to win a match on the main WTA Tour in four years as a professional.
Williams has swept to Australian and French Open triumphs over the last six months and the world number one returns to the All England Club within two major titles of becoming the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1988 to claim the four top titles in one year.
The 33-year-old American also won the US Open to end 2014 on a high and is heavy favourite to continue that dominant run by taking the Wimbledon title for the sixth time.
"Personally it doesn't make it feel any different, which I think is a good thing because I don't feel any pressure to win all four," said Williams.
Sharapova, the 2004 champion, has only got beyond the fourth round once in the last eight years.
The fourth seeded Russian is second-up on Centre Court against Britain's Australian-born Johanna Konta, the world number 146.
The 24-year-old Konta, who showed her grass-court credentials with a run to the quarter-finals in Eastbourne last week, has played three first rounds at Wimbledon, losing on all three occasions.
Wawrinka, fresh from his French Open win, completes play on Centre Court by facing Portugal's Joao Sousa.
Japan's Kei Nishikori, the fifth seed, plays Italy's Simone Bolelli while Australian 26th seed Nick Kyrgios, who knocked out Nadal 12 months ago, opens play on Court Two against Argentina's Diego Schwartzman.

Alessandra Ambrosio Strips Naked for Racy Telenovela Sex Scene(Video) Does it get any hotter?
Brazilian model and Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio is completely nude for some wild and hot sex scenes in homeland telenovela Verdades Secretas.
Ambrosio's forte is strutting down the catwalk, but now she's trying her hand at acting.
The model-turned-actress has made cameo appearances on shows like How I Met Your Mother and Entourage, but this is her first full-time acting gig.
What's not changing with the new job, however, is Alessandra showing off her sexy body. This time we're seeing her without the lingerie, though.
The hottie is on the verge of perhaps a big acting career. She's not stopping with this one TV show.
Ambrosio will star alongside Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell in this year's Daddy's Home and with Stephen Amell and Megan Fox in next year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
Cara Delevingne happy with girlfriend, has 'erotic dreams' about menCara Delevingne is proving that sexuality isn’t always so easy to define.
“It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it,” the 22-year-old explained in the July issue of Vogue. “But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him.”
The model-cum-actress revealed she’s seriously involved with singer Annie Clark, who performs as St. Vincent.
“I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days,” she said. “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
The British beauty was born to an upper-class family, but Delevingne’s socialite mother, Pandora, had a recurring heroin addiction throughout the model’s youth.
“It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction,” she said. “You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents.”
As a teen, the “Paper Towns” star was placed on a cocktail of drugs “stronger than Prozac” and admitted to thoughts of suicide during those dark days.
Delevingne acknowledged happiness in her love life and career, yet is uncertain about the future.
“Women are what completely inspire me, and they have also been my downfall,” she declared. “I have only been hurt by women, my mother first of all. If I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children.”
“And that scares me to death,” she continued. “Because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
Christy Turlington Explains Why She Stopped Runway Modeling: It's No Fun Feeling "Like You're In a Fishbowl"Christy Turlington Burns may rank as one of the top supermodels, well, ever. But even she's not immune to outgrowing her high profile profession.
During a model-on-model chat with Iman for Humanity (that's Citizen' of Humanity's mag), the once runway-happy model explained why she walked away from doing fashion shows.
"I thought about it for a long time, and I guess I really haven't fully given modeling up, but in my mind I did, because I went back to school and moved on in my life," Turlington explained. "And when I went back to school, same thing. I remember somebody telling me that they were in a location van and they saw me walk by with my backpack, and they were like, ‘Oh, poor thing.' And I'm thinking–‘Poor thing? I'm getting my education, you fools.'"
And get an education, she did. In 1999, the supermodel earned a bachelor's degree from New York University. She didn't stop there though, and is now working towards a master's degree at Columbia University.
Nowadays, Christy's model ambitions are fine-tuned to print work, counting Donna Karan and Calvin Klein as some of her most recent stints. Since she's left the runway world behind though, the 46-year-old mom doesn't enjoy returning to watch as a spectator.
"I can't go to watch them either. I have over the years every now and again, but it's so stressful to be there when you don't have a reason to be there," she dished. "It's just not fun and you feel like you're in a fishbowl."
Plenty of supermodels have hung up their runway heels in the past, citing their own reasons for walking away. In the same Q&A, Iman said that hadn't strutted down a catwalk since 1989, revealing that her decision to quit happened in the blink of an eye.
"I literally woke up and called my agent and said, ‘That's it,' and they said, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, let me call you next week, for my book,'" she said. "And I said, ‘No, I'm done.' And I was done and I never went back.
More recently, Gisele Bundchen retired from the runway after nearly 20 years because her body "asked to stop."
Safe to say, these ladies are more than entitled to enjoy their runway retirement.

Are Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen Feuding Before Their New Talk Show Premieres? Get the Scoop!Tyra Banks is returning to daytime and this time, she's not doing it alone!
That's right! The host of America's Next Top Model is joining Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Lauren Makk and Leah Ashley for a lifestyle chat show this fall.
And while the series doesn't premiere for another few months, Banks is already poking fun at the rumors that she could soon be feuding with a co-host.
"Peeps think U R smiling @ChrissyTeigen but really I'm pressing my sharp dress studs into UR flesh as U grimace," Banks tweeted with a photo from a recent red carpet appearance. "Ha! That's the crazy stuff the press comes up w/ @ChrissyTeigen. I look 4ward 2the many fake stories about crazy fights between U&I, boo!"
She added, "And if I'm ever truly upset about anything, TyTy is coming for Teigen on #LipSmizeBattle . (& no, I didn't misspell anything, boo.)"
So Teigen and Banks never had a feud? It doesn't sound like it! But being two successful, pretty models, the ladies appear to be getting ready for a few tabloids to make up some rumors sooner rather than later.
".@TyraBanks I am just excited I'm cool enough to be in on-set feuds now!" Teigen joked on Twitter Saturday. "We need to write passive aggressive raps about each other now." LOL!
Described as a "fun and entertaining lifestyle program," The F.A.B. Life will feature a diverse panel of experts who will inform and connect with today's daytime viewers.
The series, which premieres September 14, will also welcome celebrity guests and motivate the audience "to make their lives more fun and beautiful."
"The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me," Banks said in a statement at the time of the show's announcement. "I'm excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious."
Kate Moss Talks Love of Flying in Interview Conducted Before She Was Allegedly Kicked Off an AirplaneKate Moss loves to fly—most of the time, at least...
On Sunday, the 41-year-old supermodel was reportedly escorted off an EasyJet flight for "disruptive behavior." In an interview conducted with British InStyle prior to this alleged incident, though, Moss was raving about her typical in-air experience!
"I love it. I find it really relaxing," she told the mag's July issue, which is on stands now. "No phone, a movie, a glass of wine and some salad. Perfect!"
"I always take a cashmere blanket and I have pictures of my family in my passport holder," she added. "I always go to sleep on the plane. Then I try and stay up whenever I get where I'm going to and get straight into the time zone I'm in."
That all sounds practical....and not at all disruptive! Moss copped to being just a tad more high-maintenance than your average flier, but her luggage demands weren't anything too crazy. As she told InStyle U.K., "I don't think I massively over-pack but I'm definitely not a one-case kind of girl."
"If the plane lost all my luggage and I was somewhere sunny like Ibiza I would just get a bikini, shorts, T-shirt and sandals," she said. "If it was somewhere colder like New York I'd go for jeans, jacket and a pair of Louboutins."
That sounds quite levelheaded as well! Perhaps part of the purported problem Sunday was that Moss wasn't necessarily in mommy mode—she was traveling with her friend, actress Sadie Frost, and not her preferred companion, her 12-year-old daughter Lila.
The model mama wants to go on a grand adventure with her mini-me (assuming recent events haven't squashed the travel bug for Moss). "Stuart Weitzman does this cool thing with his kids, which I want to do with Lila," she explained. "You pick a number at random out of a hat and then pick the corresponding number on the departure board. Then you just go wherever it says. Brilliant!"
Hilary Rhoda and Sean Avery Reveal Wedding Date and Venue as Former Hockey Stud Jokes ''We Are Going to Have Ugly Babies''Gorgeous couple Hilary Rhoda and Sean Avery stun on the latest issue of Hamptons magazine, and the cover could not be more appropriate, as the engaged lovebirds reveal they are set to wed out East!
"We're just getting it together now after a year and a half of being engaged," Rhoda revealed. "We're just starting to meet with wedding planners and figuring out when we're going to do it, but we're aiming for the fall. We're getting married in the Hamptons."
"We have a house out here," the 28-year-old model told the publication when asked why she and Avery chose the location. "We've been spending so much time out here, every summer and a lot [of the rest of the year] too. We were thinking of doing it at some destination, but it really is just so much more personal and also a little bit easier than some exotic island somewhere."
Avery popped the question back in November 2013, and the happy couple has since been enjoying their engagement, telling the mag their wedding will be relatively low-key.
"At this point, I don't necessarily think we need a wedding planner," Avery said. "I could set this wedding up in the next couple of weeks, and everything would run smoothly. …We're going to have an amazing weekend—all of our friends are going to be here, and no matter what happens, it's going to be fun and beautiful."
"Yeah, actually I agree," Rhoda continued. "Neither of us is the bridezilla and groomzilla type, because both of us are pretty low-key, and we just want a fun party where we can just be with all our friends. We're not such huge wedding-crazed people."
Asked whether the two want to have babies, Rhoda replied, "Yes of course" before Avery joked about their status as a super-hot couple, "That means we are going to have ugly babies. We're cursed."
Jokes aside, the attractive duo, who recently shot the campaign together for their swimsuit collection with Solid & Striped, is one of the hottest couples in the biz, whose love story is one for the books!
"I can say I'm a part of the age-old story—girl walks into a bar and guy says to his buddy, 'That's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen, and I'm going to marry her,'" Avery recalls. "I had just opened a bar [in Manhattan] called Warren 77, and Hilary came to the opening party with her girlfriend."
Too cute. Can't wait for the wedding, you two!
Hilary Rhoda and Sean Avery to wed in the HamptonsTop model Hilary Rhoda will marry former New York Ranger Sean Avery in the Hamptons this fall, Page Six can reveal.
The glamorous couple, who have been together for five years, will tie the knot at the Herzog & de Meuron-designed Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.
Rhoda, a face of Estée Lauder who has appeared in campaigns for Elie Tahari, Sergio Rossi and Valentino, was engaged to Avery in November 2013.
The couple features on the cover of this week’s Hamptons Magazine, out on Thursday. Rhoda says of their decision to marry out East, “We have a house out here. We’ve been spending so much time out here, every summer .?.?. We were thinking of doing it at some destination, but it really is just so much more personal and also a little bit easier than some exotic island somewhere.”
When asked who is the bigger bridezilla, “I think I’m more easygoing and Sean definitely has a lot more attention to detail. He’s a little more specific about his ideas.”
Avery, now building and designing Hamptons homes, said, “I don’t necessarily think we need a wedding planner. I could set this wedding up in the next couple of weeks, and everything would run smoothly .?.?. We’re going to have an amazing weekend — all of our friends are going to be here, and no matter what happens, it’s going to be fun and beautiful.”
He said of meeting Rhoda at the opening of his bar Warren 77 in 2009, “I’m a part of the age-old story — girl walks into a bar and guy says to his buddy, ‘That’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, and I’m going to marry her.’?”

Report: Kate Moss Kicked Off Budget Plane for Being DisruptiveSupermodel Kate Moss was allegedly kicked off an easyJet flight on Sunday after she became too disruptive.
In a statement from the Bedfordshire Police obtained by BBC News, the police said they "were called to assist staff in escorting a passenger from a flight arriving to Luton [Turkey] airport this afternoon."
"Officers attended and escorted the passenger from the plane. No formal complaints were made against her and she was not arrested," the police spokesman continued.
The airline stated it "does not tolerate disruptive behavior and will always report any incidents to the authorities."
The most shocking part of this entire story isn't that Moss, a noted party girl, was kicked off a flight, but that the flight she was on was easyJet, a budget airplane.
Elle Macpherson on Aging: I've Learned 'It Doesn't Really Matter What I Look Like'At 51, Elle Macpherson exudes the same confidence she had in her 20s when she was nicknamed "The Body" – but it's taken her time to get to that happy place.
"There's one thing being 20 and gorgeous with legs up to your armpits and beautiful tight skin," the entrepreneur and supermodel says in a video on Australia talk show Sunrise. "And there's another thing to be 51."
"Finally you get to the stage and say, 'I have been known to be one of the most beautiful women in the world and felt really not confident and sure of myself,' " she continues.
In addition to changing her sleeping habits and diet, the co-founder and co-owner of the premium luxury wellness business WelleCo credits her Super Elixir Alkalising Greens supplement for helping her age gracefully.
"As I've matured, what I've realized is that it doesn't really matter what I look like, the most important thing is, 'how do I feel?' " she says. "[It's] when I started sleeping more and relaxing a little more in my life and looking after my nutrition, because good nutrition can change everything. I hadn't really understood my body was deprived from good nutrition."
Macpherson recently told PEOPLE she prefers to keep her body in an alkaline state – a diet trend Kelly Ripa also favors – and even keeps a pH balance urine tester kit in her bag.
"I don't worry about wrinkles," she says. "I tackle internal ageing by nourishing my cells from the inside and the welcome by-product is looking and feeling good."

Leo DiCaprio parties with Kelly Rohrbach in the HamptonsAfter Kevin Connolly admitted that Leo DiCaprio gets the most action in his circle of friends, charmingly dubbed the “P?-?-?-?y Posse,” Leo enjoyed a weekend in the Hamptons with Sports Illustrated “Rookie of the Year” model Kelly Rohrbach.
The duo, spotted getting close at LA club 1Oak back in April, took a seaplane out east with a group of friends including the club’s owner, Richie Akiva.
The actor’s group rented a $5,000-a-night, six-bed mansion in Wainscott. On Sunday, the posse dined in the back room at East Hampton favorite Nick & Toni’s. DiCaprio was casual in jeans, an orange sweater and tweed cap.
“There were two blondes and one brunette next to him,” said an onlooker.
Which Supermodel Was Impossible to Work With? Isaac Mizrahi Is SpillingBeing one of the hottest designers of the ’90s (you remember the ’90s, right? When supermodels ruled the runway?), Isaac Mizrahi has worked with his fair share of leggy divas. And he just revealed the most troublesome of them all (hint: you aren’t going to be shocked).
In the upcoming episode of Bravo’s Fashion Queens, airing May 31, he spills on the one model who was a nightmare to work with. “Well, they all had their sort of difficulties,” he shares. “I would say Naomi [Campbell] was not the easiest girl to work with.”
The reason? You never knew if she was going to show up for, oh, you know, the runway show itself.
“You would do these long fittings on her, right. I promise you for hours, fitting, and she was very conscientious,” he explains. “I guess if she had fun at the fitting, she liked the clothes, she would show up to the show,” he explains. But Mizrahi never knew for sure until the last possible minute. “The day of the show I was a mess backstage,” he says. “If she didn’t like the clothes, things would end up very differently. Someone would come in advance and say, ‘Oh, sorry, Naomi’s not coming.’ "
Considering he was the king of the design world, and she, the queen of the catwalk in the ’90s, there were definitely positive aspects of their relationship. “She just had to show up and it was perfect.”
The full episode of Fashion Queens airs on Bravo May 31 at 10 p.m.
Model Chanel Iman Makes Screen Debut in Cannes Hip-Hop Film Dope: 'I've Always Prayed That I'd Be Here Promoting a Film'Take it from Chanel Iman: There are worse things than having your prayers answered in Cannes.
"I always come here for vacation, but to come back here promoting my own film is the coolest thing," the model-turned-actress told PEOPLE, as she celebrated the international premiere of her debut film, Dope, at the Cannes Film Festival last week. "I've always prayed that I'd be here one day on the carpet promoting a film."
Iman stars alongside Zoë Kravitz and The Grand Budapest Hotel's Tony Revelori in the comedy-drama, about a couple of nerds who get into trouble when they attend an underground party in Los Angeles. The film's Cannes screening built on the buzz it generated earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
"It's an achievement for me, so I'm very proud," the 24-year-old said of her first big-screen role. In the film, she plays "wild, young-spirited" Lily – a character, she says, who "is very edgy, and it was definitely a challenge to play her because I'm nothing like that.
The key to nailing her performance? Iman didn't "overthink things" and "just went for it," she explained.
That edginess also extended to Iman's red-carpet looks for Cannes. The actress dazzled in a plunging Zuhair Murad Couture gown at the amfAR Gala, making her one of the evening's best dressed.
Her secret to looking red-carpet-ready? "It's all about the makeup."

Naomi Campbell jumps on board of Topshop owner's yachtAfter a night of partying in a château near Nice for her 45th birthday, Naomi Campbell boarded Sir Philip Green’s yacht Lionheart to watch the Monaco Grand Prix, spies tell us.
The Topshop owner was also seen rubbing elbows at sea with One Direction’s Liam Payne and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
We hear that Jean Pigozzi arrived in Monaco from his Villa Dorane in Cap d’Antibes via speedboat to photograph Lewis Hamilton in the pits at the race for a fashion spread.
Pigozzi also shot Hamilton days earlier at his villa’s pool.
Meanwhile, Hamilton also was keeping company on his own yacht with Kendall Jenner, sparking rumors of a blossoming relationship, and her pals Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Naomi Campbell rings in 45 at star-studded party in FranceNaomi Campbell celebrated her 45th birthday at a private château in France on Saturday night, with guests including Leo DiCaprio, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Nina Agdal, Jourdan Dunn and Adrien Brody.
Spies said Campbell appeared at her bash at the historic castle near Nice at midnight, and a wall of her many magazine covers from Vogue to Time greeted guests. DiCaprio hung close with Sports Illustrated swimsuit beauty Agdal, we hear.

Cara Delevingne to Weight Critics: 'Don't Hire Me'Cara Delevingne isn’t like most supermodels. Yes, she’s drop-dead gorgeous and can command a catwalk, but she doesn’t want to be known as just another “pretty face” on the runway. She wants to carve her own career path on her own terms.
The 22-year-old star, who fronts major campaign ads for high-fashion labels including Chanel, Burberry, Mulberry (she even designed her own line of handbags for the brand), Topshop, DKNY and more, has her heart set on a new adventure in her career: acting. But the road to the big screen has been a bumpy one, she confessed in a recent interview with WSJ. magazine.
“I basically gave up on acting, because trying to get an agent was impossible. Everyone said, ‘You’re just a model,'” she told the mag. “Once I had my mind set that I was going to do this modeling thing, I really wanted to beat it, if that makes sense. Win it."
After guidance and pep talk from her close friend Rihanna, (who told her, “Everything happens for a reason. You are going to call me back up in a week or two, and you are going to say to me, ‘You are right.'”), things began to fall into place for Delevingne. She landed the lead role in Paper Towns, a film based on John Green’s novel, which hits theaters July 24.
As for her modeling career, Delevingne explained it’s very frustrating and at times disheartening to work in an industry that’s all about your appearance. “It’s horrible living in a world where I’ll get a call from someone saying, ‘So-and-so says you were partying a lot and you were looking this way and you need to lose weight,'” she said. “It makes me so angry. If you don’t want to hire me, don’t hire me.”
But above all else, no matter what she ends up doing — whether that be modeling, acting or singing (remember when her and Pharrell collaborated on a beautiful duet in Karl Lagerfeld’s Reincarnation?) — she wants to do it right. “I want to prove that you can be anything you want to be,” she said. “I love working, and I love what I do. If I f— it up now, it’s all my fault.”
Naomi Campbell planning lavish birthday bash in FranceSupermodel and “Empire” star Naomi Campbell is throwing her 45th birthday party this weekend at a private château in the South of France in a glamorous continuation of the Cannes Film Festival celebrations.
Campbell has rented a sprawling château near Cannes for Saturday night’s lavish bash. She’s been planning the party with electric race-car team owner Bert Hedaya — a wealthy scion who we are told is Naomi’s current boyfriend — and art dealer Joe Nahmad, sources exclusively tell Page Six.
The party is also a “getting out” celebration of sorts for billionaire art dealer Helly Nahmad, who served five months in jail for running a celeb-studded, $100 million gambling ring and has just been released from house arrest.
His lawyer, Ben Brafman, confirmed Helly, who runs the Nahmad Gallery at the Carlyle Hotel, had been “approved by the c?ourt for international travel” for the first time.
Others expected at Campbell’s bash — now an annual celeb-heavy event in Cannes — include Leo DiCaprio, Sean “Diddy” Combs, oil heir Brandon Davis, nightlife guru Richie Akiva, and fellow top models including Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Gigi Hadid.
The château boasts multiple bedrooms, landscaped grounds and terraces with views of the Alps and neighboring countryside right down to the sea. Preparations are being made for a large dinner and dancing well into the night. But Naomi’s appropriately petulant publicist Abi O’Donnell yelled at Page Six, “What the f–k?” when we politely asked about the party.
Campbell is known for her opulent events, including the extravaganza she threw in 2012 for her then-boyfriend Vladimir Doronin’s 50th birthday by renting the entire 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India.
The model, who plays temptress Camilla in Lee Daniels’ hit drama “Empire,” has recently been shooting scenes for the much-anticipated second season of the Fox show.
Victoria's Secret Model Josephine Skriver Talks About Being an "IVF Kid," Growing Up With Gay Dad and MomJosephine Skriver's life has always been unconventional and not just because she's a Victoria's Secret supermodel.
The 22-year-old native of Denmark, who has also walked runways for top fashion brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Gucci, was conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF) and both of her parents are gay. And of the opposite sex. Who were strangers.
"When people look at me and know that I'm an IVF kid, I hope to see a person, I hope to see a human being just like anyone else," Josephine told i-D magazine in an interview published this week. You get so many, like, 'She's not made the natural way, she shouldn't even be here.' But I'm not a science experiment. I'm not synthetic. I am a real human being. I am just as real as you are."
IVF and artificial insemination are often the only ways for a woman to get pregnant. Infertility afftects about 12 percent of women of childbearing age and more than seven percent of men, according to the CDC. In March, Dolce & Gabbana founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana drew controversy when they criticized such methods of conception, with the latter calling babies born as a result of them "synthetic," as well as same-sex parenting.
"I had a mom, who back in the day was gay," she said. "From the moment she was a kid, from the moment she knew about kids, she wanted to be a mom. So in Denmark, in '92, there was this newsletter for the whole LGBTQ community and my mom just put an ad in there and was like, 'I want to bring a kid into this world. Does anyone want to be part of that?' She got a few replies and the first one actually turned out to be my dad!"
Josephine said that at the time, the man who would become her father was about to marry his now-husband.
"I didn't like the term 'Stepmom' or 'Stepdad' because it always felt like something bad from the Disney movies," she told i-D. "So we came up with our own word and called it 'Bonus Mom'...I grew up with a mom and a dad and a bonus set of parents."
Josephine also has a younger brother, Oliver Skriver. She told the magazine that the whole family gets together for birthdays and big holidays.
Josephine said that when she was a kid, she didn't consider her upbringing to be "that different" and that her parents were "super open about it." It wasn't until she began working overseas as a model that she really became to experience intolerance. She also said she has received mean comments on social media.
"You get so many, like, 'That's disgusting,' 'That's gross,' 'I feel bad for you,' 'Oh my God, I can't even believe it," Josephine said. "It comes from a place I don't understand."
The model was recently made a celebrity ambassador for the Family Equality Council and it's Outspoken Generation Program, which aims to raise awareness about LGBTQ families.
"I just hope that one day the concept of 'family' will mean a lot more than the traditional straight couple, with two kids and a house with a white picket fence," she told i-D. "For me, family is a group of people bound by love! Love is what makes a family!"
Irina Shayk Parties with Leonardo DiCaprio in Cannes Without Bradley CooperLooks like Bradley Cooper's good pal approves of his new love interest Irina Shayk.
The Victoria's Secret model was seen enjoying the party scene at the Gotha Club during the Cannes Film Festival with Cooper's longtime friend Leonardo DiCaprio on Monday night – sans Cooper, according to sources.
DiCaprio and Shayk appeared to be very comfortable together as they shared a laugh during the late-night outing.
But PEOPLE has learned that the close talking was nothing to raise an eyebrow over and Shayk was simply talking to DiCaprio.
Cooper, who has been busy promoting his new film Aloha, was last seen sharing a steamy kiss with Shayk in London on May 13.
Bill Cosby Sued By Janice Dickinson -- He's a Liar and a RapistJanice Dickinson has just sued Bill Cosby, claiming he flat-out lied when his teamed claimed she made up the story that he drugged and raped her.

Less than a month after the A-list actor and Irina Shayk sparked romance rumors after attending Broadway's Finding Neverland together, things between the pair are definitely "heating up."
"They have been spending lots of time together these past few weeks and have had many date nights," a source revealed exclusively to E! News. "Their chemistry is crazy when they are together. They can't keep their hands off of each other."
Just last week, the twosome couldn't help but display some serious PDA while kissing in the streets of New York City. In fact, they were more than happy to walk hand-in-hand after one of their late-night dinners.
"Bradley thinks Irina is stunning but also such a sweet woman with a great heart," our source shared. "Irina is really impressed with how down to earth Bradley is and really easy to be around."
The insider continued, "She also thinks he is such a hardworking, talented actor. They have great conversation and so many laughs when they are hanging out."
What could be the cherry on top to this growing romance is the fact that everyone close to them "likes their dynamic together."
This week, Bradley and Irina have traveled to Europe for separate reasons.
The model is busy with business while her new man is promoting his latest film Aloha with Emma Stone. But according to our source, the chance of these two meeting up in the near future is very likely.
"Friends of theirs would not be surprised if things got serious," our insider shared. "Bradley and Irina are just relaxing and enjoying each other."

Linda Evangelista turns 50 in styleLinda Evangelista celebrated her 50th birthday with fashionable friends at Harlow on Saturday night.
Guests included Marc Jacobs, stylists Lori Goldstein and Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and makeup artist Pat McGrath. Also at the bash was notoriously private photographer Steven Meisel — who made sure to duck down behind Jacobs when a photo was snapped of the group.
Evangelista — who once famously said in her prime she wouldn’t “get out of bed for less than $10,000” — still looked worth every penny at the Met Gala.
Joan Smalls Was Bullied for Her "Awkward-Looking" Model Body in School-Get the Scoop!Supermodel and Lucky cover star Joan Smalls wasn't immune to bullying about her looks when she was younger, if you can believe it. (We know: What?!)
"I was so awkward-looking—tall, super skinny, gangly. The boys at school made fun of me," Joan told the magazine in her May 2015 cover feature. "But I'd see [models] on TV and I'd think, Oh, they have my same body type."
The Puerto Rican beauty drew inspiration from catwalk queens Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Christie Brinkley as a teenager, first learning about their journeys to supermodeldom by watching E! True Hollywood Story: "I'd just watch the show and be glued to the screen," she said. "I couldn't even imagine—these were women who got to travel the world. It just seemed so alluring."
The model moved to New York from Puerto Rico in 2007, and just three years later found herself starring in Riccardo Tisci's Givenchy show (her unique bleached brow look would be one of the most memorable beauty statements of the season).
Joan's a full-fledged success in 2015: She even partnered with True Religion this year on a 16-piece collection featuring denim, satin skinnies and crop tops.
All the better, really, because we're obsessed with the model's street style, too. (Joan isn't one to shy from mall bargain buys, by the way—she was even wearing Zara jeans while being interviewed.)
"I love to mix high and low," she said. "It's the best when you have on something inexpensive and someone goes, ‘Oh my God, who made that?'" That's usually our first thought when we see what Joan's wearing on the streets during fashion week!
In the future for the 26-year-old? Becoming a one name wonder (and sharp businesswoman) like Gisele Bundchen and Cindy Crawford.
"I feel like a good amount of women have used modeling as a platform. People like Gisele and Cindy. And I think that's really cool, not only for models but for women. It shows that you can have a voice and a say. You can have a brand and be your own boss. It's empowering," she said.
Lucky's May 2015 issue is on newsstands now.
Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk spotted making out after Met GalaBradley Cooper and Irina Shayk tried to keep a low profile at the Met Gala on Monday night — but hours later, the pair was “making out” in a dark corner at Rihanna’s afterparty “till 3 or 4 in the morning,” sources tell Page Six.
We reported exclusively that last month Cooper and Shayk were spotted on a date at a Broadway show, and the pair was then together after the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. On Monday, the movie star and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model (both newly single) arrived separately to Anna Wintour’s Met Gala — then also left apart.
But by early Tuesday, the two were seen getting hot and heavy at Richie Akiva’s Up & Down nightclub, where Rihanna hosted her private afterparty.
Spies said the pair at first were “hanging out in a close group” with Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Also at the club, dancing in one group, were Rihanna, Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Riccardo Tisci and Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing. Then “Diddy got in there, Miley [Cyrus] got in there, then Jennifer Lawrence. It was insane. It was a dance-party circle of superstardom,” said a spy. Madonna’s daughter Lourdes also joined in “till the lights came on.” Justin Bieber narrowly missed his ex Selena Gomez and was spotted hanging with Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Cooper and Shayk then slipped downstairs into “the karaoke room,” where “they were making out .?.?. they were very close all night.”
Rihanna had changed out of her showstopping Met Gala dress into a black outfit with a see-through top (see below) for her D’Ussé Cognac and Armand de Brignac-sponsored bash.
Spies said that before she walked the gala dinner’s red carpet in her yellow frock with immense flowing train by Chinese couture designer Guo Pei, she’d pulled up to a Chinese restaurant for takeout. At 5 p.m., her car pulled up to Philippe restaurant on East 60th Street and was delivered salt and pepper calamari, chicken fried rice, sea bass, filet mignon and green prawns.
We assume she shared with her entourage.
Rihanna’s Up&Down party was also catered by Philippe, which decorated the bash with oversize Chinese takeout containers.
Chrissy Teigen says she'd 'totally' be a prison chefShe may be a celebrated swimsuit model, but Chrissy Teigen wouldn’t mind slipping on a lunch-lady hairnet to cook in the big house.
“I watch a lot of ‘Lockup’ and I always say, I would totally be the prison chef,” Teigen told The Post’s Kirsten Fleming at the Wellness in the Schools gala Tuesday.
“There is something about compartmentalized food that I love. I grew up on TV dinners — Hungry Man and Kid Cuisines. I still eat them,” admits the beauty. She was attending the 10th anniversary for the foundation, which teaches nutrition to schoolchildren with food labs and exercise programs.
Teigen, who says Rihanna’s gold Guo Pei cape at the Met Gala was “what the ball should be,” was joined at the Wellness in the Schools bash by her husband, John Legend, and chefs Bill Telepan and Josh Capon.
Charlotte McKinney on what it's like to work with David SpadeCharlotte McKinney says David Spade used cue cards on set of their film “Joe Dirt 2.”
The model star of Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl ad admits dyslexia makes it hard for her to learn her lines. “I’m dyslexic, so when I’m reading stuff it takes me longer to catch on, and I have to read it over,” she told us on Wednesday. “Sometimes it’s better if I just hear it.”
But she said former “SNL” comic Spade “uses a teleprompter the whole time. He’s always reading off of stuff. I look over and there’s a lady holding a cue card!”

Kendall Jenner: 'You Have No Idea How Many Doors Closed on Me'Kendall Jenner may have crossed the supermodel threshold, but getting respect in the industry was no easy feat for the young star. Now, Kendall is opening up about her early modeling days, her validating Calvin Klein endorsement and more in a new interview with V magazine.
Kendall poses for photographer Steven Klein in the latest issue of V, wearing sporty looks from Calvin Klein. And the 19-year-old star says collaborating with the tastemaker was a an incredible experience. It also was a bit dangerous.
“He is such an intensely talented person but he is cool and actually quite hilarious to work with,” she shares. “We have some sort of telepathic mojo. This shoot was particularly fun because he brought his three Great Danes. They’re huge and one of them even slightly bit my head, that’s how gigantic he was! My head’s okay though. Any chance that I can work with animals, I’m in.”
She also explains that getting her foothold in the modeling world was a struggle.
“You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back,” she explains. “It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees, trying my best to break into this business as a teenager. I am so grateful to Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Katie Grand, who took a chance on me that first season and gave me an opportunity. My parents taught me that work ethic is one of the most important keys in life, and I believe it.”
As for her latest major campaign with Calvin Klein (she’s the face of the brand’s new #mycalvins denim series), Kendall says she’s always been a fan of the iconic label.
“The first campaign that I recall was with Kate Moss and Marky Mark,” she says. “Probably the most iconic jeans ad ever.”
And she adds that it will take a while to get used to seeing herself (in her Calvins) on the Sunset strip.
“This will be my first billboard on Sunset, which I’m ecstatic about,” she gushes. “It’s really humbling, and honestly, I am a pretty shy person, but being part of the Calvin campaign and seeing myself up there will be a dream come true. I might have to eat every night at the Chateau Marmont with that hanging over my shoulder. ‘Oh yeah, that little thing? I didn’t notice.'”

Denise Bidot Talks Plus-Size Modeling: 'When the Clothes Change, the Women Change'Denise Bidot has been a successful plus-size model for the past eight years, but her career – which has included major ad campaigns and shows in New York Fashion Week – actually began by chance.
"I just got lucky to be at the right place at the right time," she tells PEOPLE.
Bidot originally moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to pursue acting, but she was constantly told she needed to lose 10 to 15 lbs.
"I'd be like, 'No! How dare you? You should love me the way I am. There's nothing wrong,' " says the Puerto Rican and Middle Eastern beauty, 28. "I just didn't want to compromise who I was and what I believed in for an industry, no matter how much I loved it."
So Bidot began working behind the scenes as a makeup artist, when she was discovered by a photographer.
"She's like, 'Have you ever thought of modeling?' I'm like, 'Look, I'm short and chubby – are you serious? What kind of modeling am I going to do?' " she recalls. "She changed my life."
Since then, Bidot has booked international and domestic campaigns – including ads for Forever 21 and, most recently, Lilly Pulitzer for Target – and opened the CHROMAT show in New York Fashion Week, breaking boundaries that had never been crossed before. But her modeling gigs weren't always so glamorous.
"Eight years ago we had the ugliest clothes!" exclaims the Miami native, who currently resides in N.Y.C. "It was muumuus and stuff my grandma would want to wear. You didn't feel sexy wearing the stuff."
Slowly, the industry began to change.
"I started seeing the progression," she says. "There started being junior brands that started popping up. There are so much cooler, hipper clothes now because I think people finally opened their eyes and realized every girl wants to feel strong, she wants to be cool. We want to look fabulous, the same as anyone else."
Bidot believes availability of clothes for women of all sizes has helped alter attitudes as well.
"When the clothes change, the women change," she says. "They start feeling more confident and then all of a sudden, people start seeing them differently. It's been a really, really cool thing to see from the inside out."
The perception of plus-size models was also transformed.
"We were like the stepchild back in the day, but now we're not," Bidot says. "We're right there in line with these girls, we're included in the lineup, we're in the mix. Plus-size girls are now doing beauty campaigns and hair campaigns and so many different things that for so long we fought for and wanted. We're in a really great place in the fashion industry, and now it's rippling into TV and film. It's really wonderful to see."
Though a boom in the plus-size modeling industry also means more competition, Bidot doesn't mind.
"There was a handful of us back in the day, and there's a big pool right now," she says. "It's nice to see. I think there's room for everyone. A lot of girls get caught up looking at what other people are doing. You've just got to stay in your lane. You've just got to go forward and know that whatever is meant for you is going to come your way."
No matter what, Bidot knows that her biggest fan and cheerleader is at home: her 6-year-old daughter, Jocelyn.
"I always laugh about it because when I come in with hair extensions or lashes or all this makeup, she's like, 'Take it off, mommy, you're beautiful just the way you are,' " she says. "It's amazing to think that a 6-year-old can have what so many women of my generation are struggling to figure out. We can change their mentality growing up, to let them always know that they're perfect they way they are. She understands."
Elle Macpherson carries pH balance urine testersThis just may be Elle Macpherson’s secret to looking half her age.
In a revealing interview, in which the 51-year-old model details a number of her health tips and tricks, Macpherson says she swears by pH testers.
When asked by The London Evening Standard what’s the most shocking item in her purse, she shared: “A pH balance urine tester kit to check that I’m in an alkaline state,” said the mother of two. “I believe that most ailments come from having an acidic body.”
Another insider secret to keeping her 6-foot frame in impeccable shape is draining her lymph nodes.
In fact, it’s the first thing she does whenever returning to London. “[I] visit my nutritionist Dr. Simone Laubscher on Harley Street and Shirley and Dr. Sebagh’s clinic for for lymphatic drainage,” shared the Australian-born model, who also says vacations are key.
As for her diet, Macpherson — who is known as “The Body” — eats three square meals a day and steers clear of red meat, wheat and dairy.
However, she occasionally indulges in three guilty pleasures: “Green & Black’s dark chocolate, digestive biscuits and Marmite.”
Chrissy Teigen: Being Fit Is 'Both Fun and Frustrating'For Chrissy Teigen, wellness can sometimes feel like a big blur of pasta, potatoes, juices, healthy breakfasts, cravings and cardio.
But the Sports Illustrated swimsuit stunner doesn’t mind allowing her definition of wellness to ebb and flow, she told New York Magazine in a new interview Thursday.
The food blogger and soon-to-be cookbook author, 29, told The Cut that wellness is doing whatever is “best for you.”
“It will never be the same for everyone, but you do what you can to make sure you feel healthy and happy,” she said. And it’s okay if finding a healthy balance isn’t always easy, according to Teigen.
“When I first started modeling, I had no wellness theory. I did things that I would never do now, such as binge-diet — which would turn into binge-eating and smoking to curb the appetite.”
“They were really horrible things that were just quick solutions for my fixation on weight,” she explained. “I am completely driven by cravings.”
But now that she is a little older and wiser, the supermodel has learned it’s okay to fall somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.
“I love food, but I love to feel fit and healthy. It’s both fun and frustrating to find that balance, but it’s not a solo journey,” she said.
Here are a few other tips we learned from Teigen’s interview:
Go-To Breakfasts: “Two eggs over easy with sliced avocado and turkey bacon, doused in Cholula sauce, or, a slice of Ezekiel bread with prosciutto, avocado mash, sliced tomatoes, and red onion.”
Pre-Photo Shoot Trick: “If I have a big shoot coming up, I do low-carb, no red meat, and earlier dinners. And I just tell myself that sure, maybe I cannot eat all the things I’d love to today. But there are many more days in the week, and that perfect bite will come when I’m done with whatever shoot.”
Best Piece of Wellness Advice: “Listen to your own body! And, things are never, ever as they seem. Even on television I am full of fake hair and covered in body makeup head-to-toe.”
Chrissy Teigen: I'm Never Photoshopping My Instagram Photos Again(Video) Chrissy Teigen is taking a firm stand against excessive Photoshopping.
The model, 29, appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show Friday, explaining why she chose to share a photo of her stretch marks on Instagram.
“I’m working on a cookbook, so I was bumping around the kitchen and every door handle would just nick me every single time, and I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there,” she told Vieria. “I have those apps, those Facetunes, those Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore — and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now. The standard is so ridiculous.”
Teigen believes all the photo editing that happens on social media has gone too far.
“It’s gotten to the point where they’re not smoothing their skin anymore, they’re actually changing the shape of their body,” she continued. “Nobody can compare to that when you’re fixing yourself so much. It’s so unfair.”
The always-candid Teigen added that no celebrity really looks as good as they may appear online.
“It started with Botox and everything, of course, but now it’s just grown into this Photoshop phenomenon — and I’ve seen these women in person — they are not like that,” she said. “Please know that. I’ve shot in barely anything with them, and it’s just amazing what people do to tweak themselves.”

Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper spotted on a Broadway dateBradley Cooper has been spotted on a Broadway date with top model Irina Shayk.
The “American Sniper” star was seen in the audience at “Finding Neverland,” starring Matthew Morrison, with Russian beauty Shayk on Wednesday night. Sources tell us Cooper and Shayk have known each other for a while through mutual friends, and have been “hanging out” for the past week.
Our source added “[it is] a friendly relationship — for the time being.”
Cooper split with model Suki Waterhouse earlier this year, but they were spotted at Coachella, sparking rumors they’d reunited.
Shayk broke up with Portugese soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo in January. A rep for Shayk had no comment. Cooper’s rep didn’t respond.

Plus-Size Lingerie Model Ashley Graham: 'Men Want to See Curves'Ashley Graham made waves by being the first plus-size model to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue – and again as part of Lane Bryant's #ImNoAngel lingerie campaign featuring women of all shapes and sizes – but she's actually been showing off her curvy figure for over a decade.
"I was born plus-size," Graham told Yahoo! Style. "My first [modeling] job ever was lingerie. My mom had to sign a petition that said they would airbrush my nipples out!"
The Lincoln, Nebraska, native started modeling for Lane Bryant when she was 14, and despite her loyalty to the brand and her starring in their seemingly anti-Victoria's Secret campaign, she wouldn't turn down an offer from the lingerie giant.
"Absolutely," Graham – who hopes people view her as a "curvaceous, sexy, gorgeous hunk of woman" – responded when asked if she would ever model for Victoria's Secret.
The boundary-breaker was recently ranked No. 11 on Ask Men's list of "Top 99 Outstanding Women 2015," ahead of Michelle Obama at No. 12.
"Weird moment," she said, joking that she nabbed the higher position because "men want to see the curves."
And while she tries to stay away from fried food and dairy to maintain her shape, she admits that she'll have a french fry every now and then, and isn't afraid of consuming carbs.
"I'm not gluten-free," she says. "I love gluten!"
Campbell & Delevingne to attend Burberry showNaomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne will be among the starry faces at Thursday’s Burberry fashion show and party in LA.

Campbell and Delevingne are in the brand’s current ad campaign.

Kate Upton got mad at Terry Richardson for releasing 'Cat Daddy' video(Video) There are things you don’t want out there, even if they make you a star.
A video posted of Kate Upton doing the “Cat Daddy” dance may have helped launch her career, but that doesn’t mean the model was happy to see it go public.
“That was disrespectful, you could have told me!” the 21-year-old said she told photographer Terry Richardson, who posted the clip in 2012, after it went viral.
The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover model told Vogue UK in a new interview that she was horrified to see the minute-long video of herself dancing while wearing an extremely small bikini go viral, in part because she thought it had just been filmed for fun and wouldn’t be seen by anyone who wasn’t at the photoshoot.
But whether or not she wanted the video to be released, it was an immediate hit and has garnered more than 21 million views in the last three years, which might be why Upton’s opinion of it has softened slightly.
“Now, obviously, it’s fine,” she said.
For his part, the controversial Richardson doesn’t feel the video, as popular as it proved to be, played much of a part in the model’s success.
“No,” he told the magazine, “Kate was born a star.”

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio Set to Make Her Big-Screen Acting Debut in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2Whoever thought Alessandra Ambrosio was just a model better think again!
E! News can confirm the Victoria's Secret supermodel will make her big-screen debut in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
Although the 33-year-old beauty had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of cameo in Casino Royale, her latest project will mark her first big-screen speaking role.
The confirmation from Paramount Studios comes after the model was photographed hanging out with co-star Will Arnett at Madison Square Garden last week. While the New York Knicks took on the Los Angeles Clippers, a camera crew was filming the pair who was spotted kissing and laughing together.
Fast-forward to today when we learn Ambrosio will play herself and the love interest of Arnett's character. Guess we can squash those romance rumors because it all makes sense now!
According to IMDb, the model is also expected to star in a comedy called Daddy's Home with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Looks like somebody has a full plate ahead of themselves.
Fans of Ambrosio may know the brunette beauty for her work on the runway. Whether designer her own swimwear line or showing plenty of skin in lingerie, the Brazilian babe has developed a loyal fashion following over the years. In fact, she showed her love for all things fabulous at this weekend's Simply Stylist LA event at The Grove.
Lucky for her, she may just create a whole new fan base when the film's sequel comes out June 3, 2016. We can't wait to see!
Coco Rocha Gives Birth! Model and Husband James Conran Share First Photo of Their "Beautiful" Baby Girl(Pic) Coco Rocha is officially a part of the mommy club!
The supermodel announced on Twitter Saturday afternoon that she welcomed her first child with husband James Conran.
"james and I are so proud to welcome into the world our healthy and beautiful baby girl, Ioni James Conran!," she tweeted with a picture of their child sleeping in the hospital. "#Ioniconran"
Conran added, "And then 2 became 3! Coco and I are so excited to be joined by our sweet baby girl….#BabyConran has come a long way but her biggest journey is about to begin." The couple has also already started an Instagram page for their newborn. Pretty impressive, right?
The happy news comes after the pair announced their news back in October with the cutest post possible.
Both parents-to-be shared a video on their Instagram accounts showing a CGI-version of Coco (and her baby bump) rotating like a doll inside a music box. In true, fashion-forward style, the camera zoomed in on The Face coach's bump as the words "Baby Conran / Arriving Spring 2015" filled the screen.
As she got closer and closer to her due date, Rocha tried her best to slow things down and take it easy. In fact, she tried not to make a final decision on the baby's name until she met the bundle of joy.
But through her journey to motherhood, she couldn't help but express her excitement at her growing family.
"I'm excited for the next chapter in my life for sure," she told E! News. "I want to go home and enjoy hanging out with my husband and watch some great Netflix in my pajamas."
Congratulations to the couple on their exciting news!
Lea Michele and Kate Upton Are Totally on Board for an Unforgettable Road Trip Sex ComedyThis is going to be a road trip to remember!
Lea Michele and Kate Upton have just booked their next vacation and we're all invited to watch on the big screen!
E! News has learned the two Hollywood stars will play a pair of lifelong best friends who decide to avoid their problems by taking a vacation in The Layover. Their plans, however, will drastically change once a hurricane warning hits town. Oh, and there's also one guy they both have a crush on. Can you say drama?!
"I have some very exciting news to share…." Michele tweeted to her fans Wednesday afternoon. "So excited to be working with the amazing @WilliamHMacy & the gorgeous @KateUpton on our new film #TheLayover this spring!!!"
She added, "We've already started rehearsals and have been having the best time!!! This is going to be a fun one!!! #TheLayover"
Earlier this week, Macy hinted about a project he would be working on. However, we didn't exactly know it would be this entertaining.
"And so it begins," he tweeted while hard at work. "My next project…to be announced soon." Mystery solved!
This next project will be extra special for Michele as she recently wrapped up her time on Glee after six seasons. Upton's most recent big-screen project was when she co-starred with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in The Other Woman.
"The minute I met Lea and Kate, the film began to focus for me," Macy said in a release to E! News. "They are singular, ambitious funny women in full. This is going to be fun."
Victoria's Secret Model Sara Sampaio Gets Messy with Newest Carl's Jr. Burger Ad(Video) Once upon a time in a bar made of ice, a beautiful young lady strutted her stuff while eating a messy burger. As everything begins to melt around her, one must wonder, what's hotter – the burger or the beauty?
At least, that's what happens when Victoria's Secret model Sara Sampaio stars in a steamy new ad for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. The spot introduces the chain's new Thickburger El Diablo, which they promise will be the "spiciest" burger in the fast food industry.
While the food is pretty hot, it's Sampaio, 23, who is grabbing the most attention for the steamy ad. The new spot has her following in the footsteps of other supermodels who have been featured in the chain's ad campaign, including Charlotte McKinney and Kate Upton.
Naturally, the Portuguese model, who was named Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue's Rookie of the Year in 2014, spends the majority of her time strutting around in a bikini, when she isn't munching on her burger.
The cold doesn't seem to bother Sampaio, but she must be freezing her buns off – her burger buns, that is.
Victoria's Secret Angels Joan Smalls, Behati Prinsloo & Jourdan Dunn Land Major GigsVictoria's Secret Angels have landed three very cool (and very different) new gigs—and we've got the rundown for ya, of course!
First up is Adam Levine's ladylove Behati Prinsloo, who was announced as the new face of Juicy Couture's latest fragrance lineup. WWD reports that the supermodel signed with Elizabeth Arden (the beauty giant that presides over Juicy Couture and celebrity fragrance lines, including perfumes for Britney Spears, Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift and Mariah Carey) to star in a campaign that will debut in July.
After a whirlwind run in New York, Milan and Paris for fashion week, Joan Smalls is settling on a new business venture (and this one's not on the runway): The model is partnering with True Religion for a 16-piece collection that includes denim, satin skinnies and crop tops (if those jeans give us a derrière like Joan's, we're in). Joan's line is available to be scooped up now at True Religion and Nordstrom stores, with prices ranging from a fair $58 to $238.
Meanwhile, model Jourdan Dunn is designing for the kiddies: The British beauty is set to release at least two collections with Fluid World for "children and young adults," according to Vogue UK.
"I love kid's clothes and have been obsessed with them ever since my son was born," Dunn said in a statement about the new venture. "Through my career in fashion I have come to love and respect great design, and as a mum I also expect great quality and value for money, as well as the coolest clothes for my son, Riley. I am thrilled to be working with Fluid World, and I am looking forward to developing my own collection and turning my ideas into reality."
Kate Upton: My Workout 'Makes Me Feel Like I Can Handle Anything'Even Kate Upton allows herself a cheat day!
“I am healthy, and I do work really hard, and I want to be a positive role model in that way,” the model, 22, tells Net-A-Porter’s The Edit. “What I’ve learned is that it’s about putting the right fuel in your body and treating your body well. So I try to eat as well as I can, but I also always have a cheat day.”
Part of the blonde bombshell’s dedication to health includes regular weight training sessions with fitness guru David Kirsch, and her new obsession – kickboxing.
“I just walked in and said, ‘I want to be trained like a fighter, like I’m going to get in the ring and fight someone’,” she told the magazine. “It makes me feel like I can handle anything.”
Upton’s meteoric rise to fame means that her appearance is constantly scrutinized, but she’s learned to not let public perception faze her.
“I’ve heard people say, ‘You put yourself in that position to be judged’,” she said in the interview. “But no, I put myself in that position because I really liked that photographer. I wanted to do that piece of work. Not to be judged. The internet can be horrible, so I just don’t look at it anymore… But maybe a bit of hate is good for me. Because if I’m in a spot where everyone loves me, I won’t try as hard.”
There’s only one circumstance in which other people’s opinions matter to her.
“The only thing I do for other people now is cook,” said Upton. “That’s the only place in my life where I care what they think!”
Kate Upton avoids the Internet because it's 'horrible'Kate Upton is turning off the Internet because the haters are too horrible.
Upton became a star after a video of her dancing at a basketball game went viral in 2011. Now she says social media is “kind of bulls?-?-?t.”
She told Net-A-Porter’s the Edit: “I’ve heard people say, you put yourself in that position to be judged.’ But no I put myself in that position because I really liked that photographer, I wanted to do that piece of work. Not to be judged. The Internet can be so horrible, so I just don’t look at it anymore.”

"My brother died of leukemia," the supermodel tells PEOPLE. "So when one of my closest friends – makeup artist and cancer survivor Sonia Kashuk – asked me to be a part of the April 15 Beauty with Benefits event on QVC, I wanted to honor what she's been through."
By urging people to shop for a cause, Crawford, 49, says that she gets to support her friend – who underwent a double mastectomy in 2006 – and raise money to help those who have been diagnosed with cancer continue to find the same "self-satisfaction" that Crawford has found through her career.
To do that, the two-hour Beauty with Benefits event is donating 80 percent of the purchase price of the donated merchandise to the Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation's Cancer and Careers organization.
The organization "helps people with everything – from how to tell their boss to what rights they have," explains Crawford. "To be able to work and maintain that sense of normalcy while going through treatment can help people handle the stuff that's out of their control."
Crawford also makes sure that her charitable outlook trickles down to her and husband Rande Gerber's children, Presley, 15, and Kaia, 13.
"I took my daughter to the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, where my brother was treated," she says. "I host a reunion for survivors and their family – and she helped me hand out presents. For both of our kids, that’s how we address philanthropy."

Nick Cannon Dating Model Jessica White, New Couple ''Keeping Low Profile'' Since Mariah Carey Divorce Isn't FinalRebound alert!
Nick Cannon is back on the dating scene after his six-year marriage to Mariah Carey came to an end earlier this year.
The America's Got Talent host is now romantically linked to model Jessica White and the two are said to be keeping a low profile "out of respect for Nick's family since the divorce is not final."
A source close to the new couple tells E! News that "Jessica and Nick have been friends for some time now," and reiterated that they were "purely just friends" during his marriage to the legendary pop star.
"Jessica fully respected Nick's relationship and would never get in between anything with them. When Nick was going through his breakup Jessica was there for him as a friend," our insider added.
"Jessica been in the studio lately and Nick has been very supportive with her focusing on her music career and giving her some great pointers and direction as she explores her talents. They been spending lots of time together and Nick really enjoys Jessica's free spirit and easy going attitude for life."
Speculation began to swirl of an impending split between Nick and Mariah in April of last year, but the father of two slammed the reports just weeks later in Parade magazine.
"You kind of have to ignore it because every week it's something different, and if you paid attention to it, it actually probably would start really affecting you...There's no merit or truth to it. It's kind of humorous, really. It couldn't be further off from the truth, and it really affects the credibility of the so-called newspapers," he said at time.
Meanwhile, a source close to Mariah told E! News last summer that "there have been issues between them for a while."
Page Six was the first to report the new couple news.
Gisele Bündchen Retiring From Runway: Supermodel Will Walk in Final Show During São Paulo Fashion WeekGisele Bündchen is officially turning in her catwalk heels.
After 20 (!) years as a runway model, the 34-year-old star will kiss the catwalk goodbye at São Paulo Fashion Week in April, where she will strut her stuff in the Colcci show—a Brazilian fashion company for which she has appeared in multiple campaigns and has a longstanding relationship with the brand.
News of Gisele's runway retirement was first reported by Moda Estadão.
The 34-year-old star, who has certainly cemented her place as an iconic supermodel, said it was her dream to finish walking the runway in Brazil, her native country.
Bündchen's final show will be April 20 in São Paulo, where she will model fashions from Colcci's summer 2016 collection.
It's important to note that the Brazilian beauty is not giving up her modeling career—she still plans to participate in campaigns and fashion spreads, although she will no longer grace the runway.
Tom Brady's missus, who was world's highest-paid models from 2013-2014—a title which she's held for a whopping eight years in a row—has decreased her runway presence in recent years, although she appeared in Chanel's spring 2015 fashion show back in September.
In November, Bündchen also walked in the Colcci show as part of São Paulo Fashion Week Winter 2015, and clearly, the brand is a favorite of the beauty's, as she posed for one of the company's campaigns back in 2010, just six-and-a-half weeks after she gave birth to her first child, son Benjamin.
Padma Lakshmi: 'I Was Told I Would Never Have a Child Naturally'As a young girl, Padma Lakshmi suffered from undiagnosed endometriosis so severe, she tells PEOPLE, “I had to stay home several days a month from school. I missed a week of my life for 23 years.”
The Top Chef host, 44, reveals her symptoms included bloating, cramping, excessive bleeding and severe abdominal pain — but it was something no one really spoke about.
“It’s embarrassing,” she admits. “It’s something that is deeply private and personal.”
It wasn’t until she was 36 that Dr. Tamer Seckin identified her symptoms as endometriosis — which occurs when the uterine lining cannot be expelled with a woman’s period and grows outside the uterus — and performed surgery to remove the excess tissue. From there, Lakshmi partnered with Dr. Seckin to found the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
“I wanted to raise awareness so that no young girl has to wonder what is wrong with her like I did for so many years,” she says. That’s why the EFA — thanks to the support of New York State Senator Jeff Klein — recently launched the The ENPOWR Project, which focuses on education programs to help young girls learn to recognize the symptoms of endometriosis.
After she was diagnosed, there were other hurdles for Lakshmi. “I was told I would never have children naturally, that I only had a 10 to 15 percent of having them in vitro,” she recalls. “When you’re staring down the barrel of your 40th birthday and you hear that you can’t have kids because this disease went unchecked and undiagnosed for so many years, it’s devastating.”
That is why she calls the birth of her daughter, Krishna, in 2010, “a miracle.” She says, “I’m so lucky to have her. Her middle name is Thea, which means ‘gift from God.’ ”
At just 5-years-old, Lakshmi’s “miracle” is getting in on her mom’s efforts. While Lakshmi plans the upcoming April 13 Blossom Ball to benefit the EFA, Krishna is also trying to do her part.
Recently, the proud mom says, “she was separating the coins from her piggybank and she said, ‘Mommy, you can have my money for your charity.’ She knows that Mom has a charity for women with ‘tummy aches.’ She wants to help.”
Bar Refaeli Is Engaged to Adi EzraBar Refaeli is officially off the market.
"We are pleased to announce the supermodel Bar Refaeli is engaged to her boyfriend Adi Ezra," her rep confirmed to PEOPLE Wednesday.
Refaeli, 29, was introduced to the Israeli businessman, 40, through mutual friends about two years ago, according to local newspaper Israel HaYom.
The proposal is said to have taken place while the couple was vacationing in the Caribbean last week, the paper reports.
Although Refaeli has yet to comment on the happy news herself, actions may speak louder than words: on Wednesday afternoon she shared a kissing photo of the pair captioned, "love."
In an interview with Israel HaYom last fall, the model spoke candidly of her and Ezra's age difference. "I have always gone out with guys who are older than me," Refaeli, who split from Leonardo DiCaprio, 40, in 2011 after a five-year relationship. "A 10-year age difference between a man and a woman isn't so crazy. I actually think it's a good thing."
The model adds, "He went out with many other girls before me, he's seen and done many things, and that's just a much more complete place to come from. I prefer to date someone who has experienced and done many things and met people and is now ready to choose, rather than someone who doesn't know."
Kate Upton Pitching In to Help Dog Adoption in Her HometownKate Upton is in the doghouse.
And she wouldn't want it any other way.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit supermodel will be at her baseball star boyfriend Justin Verlander's training game tomorrow in her hometown of Viera, Florida with a gaggle of…dogs!
She's hosting the Grand Slam Adoption event to promote dog adoption with the local Brevard County Sheriff Office's Animal Services department at Space Coast Stadium before the Detroit Tigers play the Washington Nationals.
"The shelter is in my hometown and my sister volunteers there and whenever I'm in town I go over there and volunteer, too," Upton told me earlier today. "I was raised on five acres and we've always been a dog and horse family. We're big animal people.
"I feel it's really important for people to know that there are such loving dogs out there that need homes and it's important that your first thought not be to shop for a dog, but to adopt one," she said.
And the cute pooches enjoy these events as much as us humans. "They're in crates all day but when people will see them they have so much energy because they have only on maybe two walks and haven't been able to play or run outside," Upton explained. "The dogs love the events too because they get to go out and run around and everybody is playing with them and playing fetch with them."
Upton has three rescues. The oldest, 13-year-old Riley, originally belonged to Verlander. "He loves everybody," The Other Woman actress said of the pooch.
Her other two? Upton laughed, "They are very loyal to me and not sure about other people."
Grand Slam Adoption begins at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Space Coast Stadium. For more information, go to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page.
Erin Heatherton's Secrets for Staying in Supermodel ShapeHow does Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model Erin Heatherton stay in such enviable shape?
First, the 6-foot-tall stunner credits the Ballet Beautiful workout for keeping her body looking toned and lean.
“My body is very athletic, so the exercises that really help my body are things that are lengthening,” Heatherton, 25, tells PEOPLE. “I’ve been doing Ballet Beautiful since 2013, and I’m still in the falling-in-love stage. It re-taught me how to stand, and a different way to hold my weight, so it helps me move as a model as well.”
The model — who recently competed in a Fitbit Celebrity Challenge against Hilary Rhoda to help raise money for the American Heart Association — works out most days of the week, doing a combination of ballet, yoga, Pilates and the occasional SoulCycle class.
“I like to switch it up,” she says. “It depends on my mood, but I always stay active.”
Her workouts tend to be hour-and-a-half sessions, and when she does something less cardio-driven – such as Moksha yoga – she adds in a 30-minute warm-up on the treadmill where she alternates between jogging and high-incline walking.
While Heatherton loves working out, she explains she also makes sure to give herself days off for recovery. “Your ligaments can only heal through rest, and you have to rest if you want to see the results of all your hard work,” she says.
When she’s getting ready for a big photo shoot, Heatherton sets aside time for invaluable shut-eye. “I’ll make sure the week before that I take time off to sleep enough, which is equally as important as working out,” she explains.
Of course diet is also a key component to looking bikini-ready.
“I always eat healthy because you don’t want to dig yourself in a hole,” says Heatherton. “The best diet is to focus on what you should be eating, and knowing how the foods you’re eating are helping you be healthier and look more beautiful. What you put in your body is what makes you glow and look healthy and gorgeous.”
Heatherton’s go-to foods include berries, eggs, avocado, salad and fish. “I could eat fish every day,” she says “I love eating fish, and I honestly would always choose fish over pizza!”
Catfight! Naomi Campbell takes on Cara DelevingneNaomi Campbell and model of the moment Cara Delevingne got into a supermodel catfight when a screaming match turned physical during Paris Fashion Week.
Witnesses said Naomi was angrily shouting at Cara, and the pair began pushing and shoving each other. Sources said Cara was seen grabbing Naomi’s hair during the high-fashion fracas.
The two models apparently got into a fight over their mutual friend Rihanna while at a chic party for Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Magazine at Paris club Castel Sunday night.
A witness told Page Six, “Naomi accused Cara of ‘disrespecting’ Rihanna and started yelling, before Naomi pushed Cara, who pushed back.” Another witness added, “Cara pulled Naomi’s weave, but it didn’t come off.”
Naomi and Cara, along with Rihanna, have been spotted together at events for Paris fashion week. But the witness said, “Naomi was angry because she felt Cara had said something negative about Rihanna.”
A separate source said Naomi, 44, unexpectedly started ranting at Cara, 22, at the glamorous bash, with guests including Bianca Brandolini and Lauren Santo Domingo. The source said, “It was a noisy and packed party. Naomi was saying all these nonsensical things, she was ranting. There was a messy pushing match. Cara didn’t understand because there’s no problem between her and Rihanna. Cara didn’t want to be involved and was telling Naomi, ‘Get away from me!’?”
Another source at the event said Naomi had been chatting with Dakota Fanning, who was at a table with models including Cara and Lily Donaldson. The source said, “Naomi didn’t do anything wrong. We are talking about a very tiny club in Paris with a very busy table — if someone pushes someone, it’s because there is no space.”
Despite the supermodel tussle, Naomi later went partying at Up & Down’s pop-up at Raspoutine, where a spy said, “Everyone was talking about the drama with Cara, but Naomi just smiled angelically.”
Reps for both Naomi and Cara declined to comment Monday night.
Christie Brinkley, 61, Reveals Her Anti-Aging Secrets, Talks Vegan Diet CheatsWhen it comes to Christie Brinkley's youthful glow, the proof is in the pudding (vegan pudding, that is).
The 61-year-old supermodel has a new skincare line launching with HSN called Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare, and we can see why: The star's looks have hardly changed over the last four decades of her career and, well, we kind of definitely want in on why. Luckily, Brinkley opened up to Elle.com about her beauty secrets, maintaining an animal product-free diet and the advice she gives to lookalike daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook about modeling.
"[Start] with a healthy diet—nutrition is an amazing way to contribute to your own well-being, and, of course, exercise and attitude," Brinkley said, before adding that life outlook has as much to do with an outer glow as eating well. "Adopting a really positive attitude can work wonders to adding years to your life, a spring to your step, a sparkle to your eye, and all of that."
Her line includes exfoliators that are friendly for everyday use and products specific to our bodies' daytime and nighttime mechanisms.
"Being vegan, and a lifelong vegetarian, I have read a lot about health and I was very interested in circadian rhythms," she explained. "Our body is doing different things when we are sleeping at night than when we are running around in the day, and I wanted the skin care to work with that," she said.
Speaking of youth, Brinkley has been making headlines for another reason lately: Her extreme likeness to 16-year-old daughter Sailor.
The teen model recently appeared in a campaign for Lord & Taylor's prom dress line, and walked the red carpet for the collection on March 7. Brinkley admits to giving her daughter advice regarding to her burgeoning career, especially when it comes to reading stories in the press.
"Yeah, I mean obviously the basics: show up on time, give it your all, enjoy it, and bring a good attitude to it, and be ready to work," she said. "I've always said to her if you're ever mentioned in an article and you read it online, never scroll past the last word."
Christie, who gave up eating seafood after the Fukushima nuclear disaster and BP oil spill, still allows a couple of cheats to her normally all-vegan diet.
"Life is too short to not have oysters and champagne sometimes," she quipped.
Christy Turlington Partners with Apple to Help Moms - and to Train for a Half MarathonTechies everywhere have been faced with the question of whether to indulge in the new Apple Watch. Thanks to Christy Turlington Burns, gadget lovers can now witness the watch – not to mention the supermodel – in action.
The model and mother of two joined Apple CEO Tim Cook to unveil a new partnership between the tech giant and Turlington's maternal-health nonprofit, Every Mother Counts (EMC), at Apple's Spring Forward media event in San Francisco on Monday.
Turlington, 46, was tapped to experience firsthand the capabilities of Apple's latest gadget by training for a half marathon in Africa using the watch, while also raising awareness and funds for her organization through the EMC race team. She took the stage at the event alongside Cook to help debut the collaboration with a video of her experience racing in a half marathon in Tanzania just a few days earlier.
"Health and fitness have always been part of my life – as a kid, as an adult and now, as a mother," she says in the clip, which functioned as a preview for a series of full-length video posts that will document her journey as she trains for yet another run, the Virgin Money London Marathon, on April 26. (See the videos on Apple.com.)
The clip shows the model both training and racing in Kilimanjaro using the Apple Watch to track her time, distance and pace. It also catches the health advocate crossing the finish line and hugging another race participant who is also wearing an Every Mother Counts jersey.
"It's going to be hard," the activist says in the video about her upcoming run. "But, like most challenges, it will definitely be worth it."
This is not the first campaign the philanthropist has worked on to help benefit the cause of women's health. Last May, the stunner also posed alongside her husband Ed Burns for a Calvin Klein fragrance campaign, in which the proceeds supported several charities including Every Mother Counts.

Coco Rocha launches fashion lineModel Coco Rocha showed off her first collection, inspired by Disney’s “Cinderella,” for HSN at the Tribeca Grand.
“A lot of times, models get a bad rap, or [people] think models should just model and focus on that,” she told us of her new design business. “I thought this was a great opportunity, but also a great entrance into people seeing that I do have a point of view. I like to tell stories.”
Rocha, pregnant with a girl, says she is looking forward to raising a daughter, “seeing who she is, what she’ll be like.”
Christie Brinkley gets emotional as Alexa Ray returns to the CarlyleSeeing her daughter Alexa Ray Joel perform gets Christie Brinkley choked up.
Alexa Ray, whose father is Billy Joel, kicked off a two-week run at the famed Café Carlyle on Tuesday night, and her proud mom beamed from the audience throughout the performance.
“I had a lump in my throat half the evening. I was fighting, like, ‘Don’t cry. You have too much makeup on,'” the stunning model, 61, told Page Six after the show.
Alexa Ray, who sang a mix of soulful original tunes and covers (none by her famous dad, though she did say on stage that he’s her favorite songwriter), last performed at Café Caryle in June, making her triumphant return after dramatically collapsing there in April.
One of Brinkley and Alexa Ray’s favorite songs from Tuesday’s set was “Verona,” a heartfelt tune about the daughter Alexa Ray hopes to have one day.
Wearing a curve-hugging lace gown, a furry shawl and sparkling jewelry, and with her long waves pulled back dramatically into a headband, 29-year-old Alexa Ray told Page Six after her gig, “I actually started writing [the song] before I had a boyfriend and I was single and I was getting that anxiety that I think a lot of girls in their 20s get … not that I want to be pregnant now, but I wanted to find my man and to have that future and have that little girl or child.”
Alexa Ray, who has been dating restaurateur Ryan Gleason since last year, continued, “I happened to have dreams every night of having this little girl and I really like the name Verona. I think it’s because I love Dad’s song ‘Vienna.’ … [Writing ‘Verona’] drummed up all these fantasies in my mind and all the imagery of this beautiful little girl.”
Gleason was also at Tuesday’s show, though he wasn’t present when Brinkley gushed to us that, “Oh my gosh, yes,” she can’t wait to have grandchildren.
Another Angel Gone! Doutzen Kroes Left Victoria's Secret Before Karlie KlossHeaven went!
There's another spot open in the world's most divine lineup: the Victoria's Secret Angels. The lingerie brand's senior creative director Ed Razek revealed that Karlie Kloss wasn't the only supermodel no longer with the company.
Turns out, Doutzen Kroes hung up her wings in December after six years as an Angel.
"After I posted the news about @karliekloss leaving VS I got a number of texts asking me why I hadn't said anything about @doutzen leaving at the end of last year. Fair question. The simple answer is I should have," Razek wrote on his Instagram. "Doutzen had a lucrative opportunity in Europe and it would have conflicted with her VS obligations. So, at her agencies request, we released her from contract. There was no conflict. No animosity. None of the nonsense I've read on Instagram. She had a great business opportunity, and I wanted to be fair to someone I adore and respect. That's all. I honestly believe Doutzen is one of the most stunningly beautiful people in the world. And I always will. I have told her that many times. Now you know."
Razek said Kloss' ended her contract with the brand because "she would not have the time to fulfill her myriad commitments." Plus, the fact that her already jam packed supermodel schedule will now include being a student at NYU.
So the real question is: Who will fill their spots?
Riley Keough Opens Up About Her Intimate Wedding to Ben Smith-Petersen: "I Didn't Want It to End"Riley Keough and Ben Smith-Petersen married in a very intimate Napa Valley, Calif., ceremony and reception, but now we are finally getting some details about her small, but star-studded affair!
Elvis Presley's granddaughter opened up to Hello! magazine, and revealed that her wedding mainly remained a family affair. Her brother, Ben Keough, was one of the groomsmen while her 6-year-old twin sisters, Finley and Harper, served as flower girls. While a small event, Keough's special day did include a few A-listers, including John Travolta, Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Zoë Kravitz. Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson served as one of the bridesmaids.
"It was the most beautiful, amazing, fun day and night," Riley told the magazine. "It was every single person I love in one place. I didn't want it to end."
Her now-husband added, "I'd say it was the best day of my life. I don't want to be cliché, but it was. I wouldn't change anything."
Except there might have been one minor change that they wish they could have made: Riley's dog misbehaving! Her French bulldog, Grubs, was slated to be part of the ceremony, but he got a little too out of control and was fired from his position LOL!
"[He] ended up misbehaving during the wedding rehearsal so we had to tell him he couldn't be the ring dog any more, sadly," Riley said. "He was very naughty."
As for the white dress? The Magic Mike actress donned a full-length and fitted Delphine Manivet gown.
"I wanted the dress to be simple and long sleeved and made of lace," she explained. "Delphine made exactly what I wanted. I'm not very flashy, I wanted it to be very simple."
But her "simple" tastes won't be translating to their upcoming honeymoon! While they haven't officially decided where they're going to vacation, she did dish that they want to go somewhere they both have "never been before."
"We were thinking we might also trek to Everest Base Camp and go to Tibet and maybe back to Nepal. Or maybe not. Maybe somewhere warm and beachy," she mused.
Sounds pretty exotic!
Chrissy Teigen: The Best Part of Marriage Is 'Making Love'Model Chrissy Teigen says marriage to musician John Legend hasn’t changed the happiness they share as a couple. It has only enhanced it.
"Some of my favorite moments in the marriage are sleeping with John at night and waking up with him the next morning," she tells PEOPLE.
"But the very best part of being married to John is making love."
The stunning model, 29, was in Miami Beach on Friday as part of a panel of foodies judging the best hamburgers during Burger Bash at the 9th annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival behind the Ritz-Carlton.
"I have sampled about 60 burgers and enjoyed every minute of it," the noted foodie laughed. "I am not even stuffed. I love to eat.”
Now we want know how she keeps her amazing figure.
Karlie Kloss Is Leaving Victoria's Secret!It seems like model Karlie Kloss has been everywhere recently (and not just in bestie Taylor Swift‘s Instagram feed): she walks in countless fashion shows, books so many ad campaigns we’re losing count, and she took home PEOPLE’s Model of the Year award in 2014. And now, after walking in four Victoria’s Secret fashion shows (since 2011!) and working as an official Angel since early 2013, she is leaving Victoria’s Secret.
“Karlie is stepping down from her Angel duties,” a source close to the 22-year-old tells PEOPLE. “She’s got a busy but exciting year ahead and the decision came down to timing. She’ll be focusing on her modeling career, new business opportunities and NYU starting in the fall.”
Yes, you read that right, she’ll officially be a supermodel and a scholar. The news that she’d be attending NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study broke this week in Vogue‘s March issue (she shares cover real estate with pal Taylor Swift).
Apparently, NYU alum Christy Turlington Burns wrote Kloss a letter of recommendation, and she got in. Continuing her education is “something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time,” she said in the Vogue interview. But you’ll still see her on the runway and as the face of standout brands like Kate Spade New York and L’Oréal Paris. “I’ll still be working full-time,” she said. “I’m incredibly ambitious and have lots of goals within my career that I’m not slowing down on anytime soon.”
Kloss will undoubtedly look back at her time with the iconic lingerie brand fondly. “She’s loved working with Victoria’s Secret and appreciates all the amazing opportunities the brand has given her to grow as a model,” says the source. “She’s adored working with everyone on the Victoria’s Secret team and all her fellow Angels.”
Updated: Ed Razek of Victoria’s Secret confirms to PEOPLE that Kloss is turning in her wings. “Karlie and I met several months ago to discuss the many things she hoped to do in her life and career. As we talked, it became clear she would not have the time to fulfill her myriad commitments,” he says in a statement. “Reluctantly, we agreed she would leave the brand at the end of her contract. Karlie is one of a kind, a very close friend, someone I truly admire and love. She is, without question, one of the best models ever. But she is an even better person. Her future is unlimited, and I am excited to see all the good she will do. Karlie Kloss will always be an Angel to me.”
Are you as sad as we are to see Karlie go?
Lily Aldridge: My Daughter Dixie Is 'Best Friends' with Taylor SwiftTwo-and-a-half-year-old Dixie Pearl may call Lily Aldridge mommy (and one hot mommy, at that!), but when it comes to playtime, the adorable tot is especially fond of labeling one particular superstar her favorite friend — Taylor Swift.
“Taylor and Dixie are best friends!” Aldridge, 29, told PEOPLE at Tuesday’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue celebration at N.Y.C.’s Marquee nightclub. “She asks to go to Taylor’s house every day and loves to go upstairs and play with her cats.”
And luckily for daughter Dixie, the swimsuit model — and last year’s cover girl — lives just a quick skip away from Swift, 25, in their shared city of Nashville, where the two have developed a close friendship.
“It’s just amazing,” says the Victoria’s Secret Angel about her favorite gal pal, Swift. “She’s just the sweetest person.”
Aldridge, who married Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill in 2011, also revealed one of her favorite pastimes with Swift during girls nights at home.
“We have dance parties in our kitchen,” shares Aldridge. “We dance to everything and we like to have ‘music-offs.’ ”
And naturally, Swift’s own collection of greatest hits are included whenever they get their groove on.
“I love ‘Style’ — I love to dance to that song, and ‘Blank Space,’ ” says Aldridge, adding, “The whole 1989 record!”

Coco Rocha's cold weather advice: 'Suck it up!'This New York Fashion Week is an extra freezing one, with windchill expected to be well below zero degrees on Sunday.
But at the Rebecca Minkoff show at Lincoln Center’s Pavilion on Friday, supermodel Coco Rocha’s advice for handling the frigid weather was simple: “Just suck it up!”
Indeed, at the show Rocha was bare-legged — though she did wear a voluminous coat with fur arms.
“I can deal with the cold. For some reason I’ve always been able to do so,” she told The Post. “I don’t know if it’s because we shoot summer clothes in winter time, but it doesn’t bother me.”
Why the tough skin?
“I’m Canadian, so that’s one thing,” she said with a laugh.

Cindy Crawford Launches 1500 Calorie Healthy Meal Plan, Reveals What She Really Eats: Get the Skinny!Looks like Cindy Crawford is the latest star to jump on the celeb diet trend.
Seemingly taking a page from Beyoncé's book, the 48-year-old super model has teamed up with Urban Remedy founder Neka Pasquale to create a meal plan called Cindy's Essentials, which focusing on clean eating, nutritious food and, as Crawford herself tells Elle.com, is "not a cleanse."
For $225.00, you can purchase one "kit," consisting of food for three full days (approximately 1500 calories per day), including mint cacao chip shakes, cold-pressed juices and healthy lunch and dinner options such as shredded kale salads and veggie pad thai.
"It's adding a lot of natural nutrients," the iconic model explains in her interview with Elle.com. "To me, the best thing about Cindy's Essentials is how you sprinkle it your real life. It's not a cleanse. That's such a thing, like 'Oh, I'm on a cleanse.' But this is just having something as convenient as vending machine food that's good for you."
Another perk to the convenient plan? You can still have caffeine.
"Yeah, but it's special caffeine," Pasquale says. "It's cold-brewed coffee so it has less acid in it. And it has almond milk in it. And then the other option is a matcha tea with almond milk. They're healthy caffeine choices."
"I like green tea," Crawford adds. "I'm a green tea person... My body wants that every morning. Just like I need salad."
The plan also mimics Crawford's daily diet, which is jam-packed with nutritious foods, although she does enjoy indulging from time to time.
"I would say a kale salad with a piece of salmon on it...," she reveals of her go-to favorite healthy meal. "I like food. I could name a million dishes. I like to eat with my family and they like pasta, of course, so I'll just have the turkey meatballs on a bed of raw spinach. Or I'll make salmon and mashed potatoes and asparagus and skip the mashed potatoes. The more you eat healthy, the more you want to do it because you feel better."
As for Crawford's advice if you're looking to lead a healthier life?
"I would say to stop mindless eating and focus on portion control. If you sit on the couch with a bag of chips, it could be gone very quickly," she explains. "I'm not saying don't have the chips—put however many you think is an appropriate serving in a bowl and eat that. We've gotten so gluttonous. Mindless eating is not good. You're not even enjoying the food at that point."
She also adds that it's important to "have snacks" and "keep your blood sugar level all day" in addition to noting the importance of fitness.
"Exercise is good, but I don't exercise every day," she says. "I exercise probably three or four times per week."

Irina Shayk is looking for a 'loyal' manNext time around, Irina Shayk wants to date a guy who’s “loyal."
That’s what the Russian model told E! News less than a month after announcing her split from longtime boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo over cheating rumors.
“What I’m looking for in a man is — I think I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women,” she told E! this week. “I think this is the most important thing in [a] man.”
After a string of rumors that the soccer stud, 30, was cheating on her, Shayk’s rep confirmed to Page Six last month that they’d called it quits.
The genetically blessed pair dated for five years.
One of Ronaldo’s alleged affairs was with a Portuguese TV presenter who has appeared in Playboy. Meanwhile, Brazilian model Andressa Urach claimed to have slept with Ronaldo in 2013.
As for Shayk, 29, she currently has no Valentine’s Day plans, but her idea of the perfect Valentine’s date includes “a lot of food, expensive bottle of Champagne, because I’m Russian. I love an expensive bottle of Champagne. Chocolate and [a] cool movie. Like yesterday I saw ‘Pretty Woman’ and that felt like Valentine’s for me. It was really nice.”
Newly single Ronaldo, meanwhile, is putting it all out there following the breakup. Earlier this month, the athlete showed off his hard body in underwear ads for the spring/summer 2015 collection of his CR7 by Cristiano Ronaldo line.
