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."
Would you try Crawford's diet plan?
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.

HSBC hid money for DVF, Elle MacPherson: reportHSBC‘s Swiss private bank hid millions of dollars for drug traffickers, arms dealers and celebrities as it helped wealthy people around the world dodge taxes, according to a report based on leaked documents that lifts the veil on the country’s banking secrecy laws.
The report from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and several news organizations comes as governments seek to crack down on tax evasion to bolster treasuries depleted by the financial crisis and staunch criticism that the rich aren’t paying their fair share.
The leaked documents cover the period up to 2007 and relate to accounts worth $100 billion held by more than 100,000 people and legal entities from 200 countries.
Some details of such operations were disclosed previously, when HSBC was fined in 2012 by the U.S. for allowing criminals to use its branches for money laundering. Monday’s report discloses a more detailed cache of data and information.
Academics estimate that $7.6 trillion is held in overseas tax havens, depriving governments of $200 billion a year in tax revenue, according to the ICIJ report.
The ICIJ reports specifically singles out 61 individuals, selected “as a sample, based on their public interest,” including celebrities, athletes and politicians.
Among the more famous names are fashion designers Diane von Fürstenberg and Valentino Garavani, model Elle MacPherson and actor Christian Slater.
The French government received the files from a whistleblower in 2010 and passed them onto tax authorities around the world, including the U.S., Britain and Germany.
In Britain, where HSBC is based, the report sparked criticism that tax authorities hadn’t done more to penalize tax evaders. The tax agency clawed back 135 million pounds ($236 million) from some of the 3,600 Britons identified as using the Geneva branch of HSBC, but only one has been prosecuted. France, by contrast, launched 103 actions.
British lawmakers reacted with outrage.
“You are left wondering, as you see the enormity of what has been going on, what it actually takes to bring a tax cheat to court,” Margaret Hodge, chair of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, told the BBC.
Hodge also said the former chairman of HSBC, Stephen Green, who became the government’s trade minister after he left the bank in 2010, must face serious questions about whether he was “asleep at the wheel, or he did know and he was therefore involved in dodgy tax practices.”
HSBC stressed that the documents were from eight years ago and said it has since implemented initiatives designed to prevent its banking services from being used to evade taxes or launder money.
Franco Morra, CEO of HSBC’s Swiss subsidiary, said the new management had shut down accounts from clients who “did not meet our high standards.”
“These disclosures about historical business practices are a reminder that the old business model of Swiss private banking is no longer acceptable,” he said in a statement.
Crawford Spence, a professor of accounting at Warwick Business School, said the latest revelations are damaging to HSBC in that they suggest complicity in tax evasion rather than simply tax avoidance. Besides that, the latest revelations are particularly damning to tax authorities.
“It appears that we need to rely on computer hackers, investigative journalists and corporate whistleblowers to expose tax evasion,” he said, adding that tax authorities “must be lacking either in resources, political will or both.”
The HSBC files were analyzed by the French daily Le Monde, The Guardian in Britain, the BBC and the Washington-based consortium.
Naomi Campbell on Playing a Cougar on Empire: 'Age Is Just a Number'Naomi Campbell might play a cougar on Fox's Empire, but the supermodel isn't exactly a fan of that title.
"I don't like the word cougar," Campbell tells PEOPLE.
"For me this is how I look at it: When you love, you love. That's it. Age is just a number."
But that doesn't mean that the British beauty isn't loving her recurring role on the new musical drama series, in which she plays sultry Camilla, the older mistress of the show's young Hakeem.
"To be given this opportunity at this point in my life, I am very committed," she says. "But I'm also having lots of fun with this. It's not my day job, so to be working with Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard and all these wonderful stars each week, I'm humbled."
And now, with a hit show under her belt and her modeling career still going strong, at age 44 Campbell says the key to success is simple.
"I think that more than anything you have to enjoy what you do and not take yourself so seriously – if you can look back and say, 'I had fun, I enjoyed it, no regrets.' "
Still, Campbell admits she misses the '90s, the whirlwind heyday when she, along with fashion superstars Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista, ruled the catwalks.
"I reminisce all the time and I have some great memories," she says. I think one of my most memorable is when Gianni [Versace] put us out on the runway together to do 'Freedom.' That's a special moment in my life, and it always will be."
Croatian Model Stabs Identical Twin Sister Over a GuyA Croatian model stabbed her identical twin sister because she was jealous of her relationship with a man they both liked.
Sara Grkovic, 22, has been arrested after she stabbed sister Dajana with a kitchen knife, Central European News reports.
They both lived with their divorced mother in the northern Croatian port city of Rijeka. Their mother was out of town for work when the incident happened on Saturday.
"They were always immaculately groomed and polite, and as alike as two peas in a pod," one neighbor told a local TV station, according to Central European News. "I never knew which one was passing me in the corridor but they always said hello."
The neighbor didn't see the girls together that often.
"Both of them were stunning," she said. "I don't think they worried about competition from other women, but they were certainly jealous of each other."
Despite the sibling rivalry, the neighbor is still shocked over the violent incident.
"They were apparently arguing about a man that they both liked. He seems to have settled down in a relationship with Dajana, and Sara was not happy about it," she said. "I never would have thought it would come to her trying to kill her sister though."
Dajana is currently stable condition in the intensive care ward at a local hospital with a deep wound to her chest and to her thigh.
Sara was remanded on a charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm on Monday, Novi List reports. Her bail was set at $14,700.

Plus-Size Model Ashley Graham on Body Image: 'Jennifer Lawrence Is the Media's Poster Girl for Curves and She's Tiny'Ashley Graham has been modeling since the age of 12, appearing in Vogue and Elle and being chosen as the first model for Jennifer Lopez‘s plus-size clothing range. Now she’s opening up about body image in a candid essay for Net-a-Porter’s online magazine The Edit.
“I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to help and educate women on that,” she shares. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards.”
A size 14 for the past eight years, Graham says her weight fluctuates 10 to 15 lbs., and that’s perfectly fine with her. “It’s not about conforming; it’s a size I feel good at. I love my body, I love my super-hourglass shape and I love showing it off.”
Maintaining a sense of humor in the essay, she writes: “I look at myself naked in the mirror and say, ‘You know what, awkward butt shape? You’re not gonna get higher or rounder but it’s OK, because I’ve got Spanx for you.'”
Graham was once a size 18, but admits to feeling healthier now. “True, I didn’t like my body when I gained a lot of weight. I was trying to like it — when you are plus size, you have to embrace your curves and accept your rolls. I have rolls now and I won’t airbrush them out on Instagram, but I was unhealthy then. I could feel it in my skin.”
How did she end up so self confident? “I think being told I was beautiful by my mom my whole life made the difference.” Her wise mama also led by example: “My mom never said, ‘I feel so ugly,’ she never looked at her face and said, ‘I need a lift.’ I never saw her looking at herself negatively and therefore I never looked at myself that way,” wrote Graham, who helped form the ALDA coalition of models promoting healthy body image.
Although she praises Marilyn Monroe and Jennifer Lopez for their shapely bodies, Graham thinks girls need more examples of women who have embraced their healthy frames. “Young girls don’t have much to look at, curvy women are not on covers of magazines, they’re not talked about on social media as much as other celebrities. Jennifer Lawrence is the media’s poster girl for curves — she’s tiny.”
Model Who Says Bill Cosby Drugged, Assaulted Her at Playboy Mansion Meets with LAPDA 24-year-old model who alleges comedian Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her met with Los Angeles Police Department detectives in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Chloe Goins spoke to detectives for two hours, says her attorney, Spencer Kuvin.
At a press conference outside police headquarters, Kuvin said he was asked by police not to give out specific details of the alleged assault. His client, he said, gave a full statement to police.
Kuvin said Goins may be the only accuser within the statute of limitations to levy criminal and civil charges against Cosby.
"She is seeking justice under the criminal justice system,” he said.
LAPD press information officer Drake Madison told PEOPLE the department does not comment on sexual assault cases. In the past, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has said he is open to investigating any allegations that Cosby sexually assaulted women.
So far, more than 15 women have come forward claiming they were drugged and assaulted by the 77-year-old. The alleged attacks go back as far as the 1960s.
Goins is the second alleged victim to meet with the LAPD: Judy Huth accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her 40 years ago, also at the Playboy Mansion. However, Los Angeles prosecutors did not file charges against him in that case.
Cosby allegedly drugged Goins at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. She woke up in a bed naked, with Cosby licking her toes and masturbating, Kuvin said. When Cosby realized she was conscious, he quickly pulled his pants up and walked out of the room, according to a press release.
Goins alleges Cosby provided a drink to her earlier in the night, which was the last thing she remembered before she woke up naked and found Cosby on top of her.
"Chloe is very aware of her responsibility because so many other women are outside of the statute of limitation," Kuvin said.
Kuvin said Goins decided to come forward because "there is power in numbers."
"Especially if you are one person against a very powerful man," he added.
Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, did not immediately comment on Goins's allegation but has previously blasted the wave of accusations against Cosby.
"These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous," he said in a statement Nov. 21.

Miranda Kerr: 'I'm Not Looking for a Relationship, I'm Just Not'You can’t define Miranda Kerr with just one label. She’s a supermodel. An entrepreneur. A mom (literally) and a “Nanna” (meaning grandma, figuratively). A New Age believer in crystal healing (seriously: She sleeps with a rose quartz healing crystal and “I clear it with the energy of the sun or the moon every three days,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar.) And she reveals all those facets — and more — in the magazine’s February issue.
The star, 31, talks about her move into high fashion after being known for her commercial work (think: Victoria’s Secret Angel). “He really believed in me in a world where a lot of people don’t,” she says of working with Nicolas Ghesquière in his role at Balenciaga and now at Louis Vuitton. “If you’re in a certain category, they keep you in that category. I started more commercially, and sometimes it’s hard to go the other way, you know?”
But again, she doesn’t want to be defined in any one box. She also has a beauty line, a teacup line, serves as the face of several brands and raises her son with ex-husband Orlando Bloom. And she’s not tied down to any guy at the moment. “I’ll go on a date here and there if it works. But at this point my priority is my son. I’m not looking for a relationship. I’m just not.”
She shares tons of good dating advice in the article (Should you sleep with someone on the first date? Is it okay to text or call first?) but perhaps most revealing is what she might wear for a night out. “Say it’s winter, and you have really nice underwear on, a garter belt, stockings, boots that come up, and a dress on over the top … No one needs to know!”
And actually, we spoke too soon. What’s most revealing (so to speak) about Kerr is that she prefers to wear no clothes at all. “I love taking my shoes off and being in the grass. Or sunbaking naked. I wish I could go skinny-dipping in the ocean. If I didn’t have to worry about anyone taking m icture, I’d totally be out there,” she says. “I quite like to be naked.” Like we said: You can’t contain Kerr even if you try.

Petra Nemcova: 10 Years After Surviving Tsunami I Know 'How Lucky I Am'Ten years ago, model Petra Nemcova was hit by a tsunami while on vacation with her boyfriend in Thailand.
Swept out to sea by a wall of water on Dec. 26, 2004, she clung onto a palm beach tree for almost eight hours.
Nemcova, who suffered internal injuries and a shattered pelvis, was one of the lucky ones.
Her boyfriend, photographer Simon Atlee, and more than 200,000 people in 14 countries died in one of the deadliest tsunamis in modern history.
"I never knew what a tsunami was," she told NBC News as she revisited the beach town of Khao Lak, Thailand, to mark the 10-year anniversary of the tragedy. "I never heard the word before – never."
Remembering the cries for help as she clung to that palm tree, Nemcova founded the Happy Hearts Charity, which has rebuilt more than 105 schools in areas impacted by natural disasters.
Surviving the tragedy "gave me the drive to help children every day since, because that day I didn't have a choice and now I have a choice," she said.
"The tsunami has given me many gifts and one of them has been consciousness of how lucky I am," she added.
WINNERS ANNOUNCED FOR INAUGURAL "PEOPLE MAGAZINE AWARDS"Model of the Year: Karlie Kloss
Alessandra Ambrósio Gets Practically Naked in Her Love VideoLeave it up to a Victoria’s Secret Angel to take off almost all of her clothes for Love magazine’s super-racy Advent calendar. Alessandra Ambrósio’s striptease is probably the most provocative (well, equal with Pamela Anderson’s almost-naked moment) so far.
In the clip (directed by Sam Faulkner and style by Phoebe Arnold), the supermodel rolls around on a white animal fur carpet completely topless wearing a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans (you know, as one does in her free time). And eventually she starts to slip the jeans all the way off. The soundtrack? Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby.” Catch the NSFW clip below (you may want to wait till you leave the office!): Video.
Ambrósio joins a string of other models including Kendall Jenner, Suki Waterhouse and Miranda Kerr as well as some more mature stars like Kris Jenner and Pamela Anderson for the magazine’s advent celebration. Every day is a new sexy surprise. Noticeably missing so far: Cara Delevingne and Kim Kardashian, but we have a feeling they’ll make a cameo very soon. (Maybe even a duet?) We really can’t wait to see who’s the featured celeb on Christmas day.
What do you think of Ambrósio’s video? Is it one of your favorites?
Beverly Johnson: My Daughter Helped Me Go Public About Bill CosbySupermodel Beverly Johnson, who came forward last week to claim she was drugged by Bill Cosby, cites her daughter as one of the reasons she finally spoke out.
It was her daughter, Anansa Sims, now 35, who first accompanied her to Cosby's Manhattan brownstone for brunch in the mid '80s, a few days before the comedian invited her back for an alleged audition.
"My daughter loved him," Johnson wrote in Vanity Fair.
It was only recently, after a series of women came forward claiming they had been drugged and assaulted by Cosby, that Johnson, 62, told her daughter she had also been drugged.
"When I called my daughter to tell her, I said, 'Remember when we went to Bill Cosby's house?' " Johnson tells PEOPLE. "And she said, 'Yeah, and I knocked over the orange juice.' 'Well,' I said, 'Bill Cosby drugged me, and I think I'm going to speak out about it.' "
Johnson says her daughter, a mother of three, first replied, "Mom be careful, a lot of people like Bill Cosby and I don't want you to get hurt.' "
But once Johnson asked Sims if, in her place, she would tell her own daughter, Sims said, "Go, Mom. You are doing the right thing and I support you."
"She said I'm doing the right thing for women," says Johnson, "because you see things differently when you have child – because if anything you have to take action."
In recent days, Cosby's wife Camille has spoken out in defense of her longtime husband. "There appears to be no vetting of my husband's accusers," she said in a statement.
When reached for comment about Camille's statement, Beverly Johnson's manager said she's done speaking for now, noting, "I think the facts speak for themselves."
While representatives for Cosby have not commented specifically on Johnson's claims, the actor's lawyer, Martin Singer, has continued to deny the allegations.
"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 on Nov. 21.
Naomi Campbell Is the New Face of Agent Provocateur at 44: See Her Super-Sexy Lingerie Ads(Pics) Naomi Campbell’s career is just as busy now as it was in the ’90s. Her beautiful Burberry ads with Jourdan Dunn were just released, and the 44-year-old supermodel is already adding another bullet to her résumé as the new face of the luxury lingerie brand, Agent Provocateur. And she looks amazing in the new campaign ads!
Campbell, who is no stranger to stripping down for the camera thanks to her Victoria’s Secret days, is excited represent all women as the face of the label.
“It’s great to be the face of Agent Provocateur’s spring/summer 2015 campaign, especially in my forties,” she said in a press release. “Agent Provocateur proves that beautiful lingerie applies to, and is appreciated by, women of all ages.”
The collection, named “Wanted Badly,” is inspired by David Lynch’s The Lost Highway and Brian de Palma’s Body Double, and represents the many sides of a woman, “coy, duplicitous, siren and saint.” The campaign ads, shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, portray Campbell as the femme fatale killer in colorful, lacy lingerie sets, including garter belts, suspenders and more.
And if just looking at the photos makes you blush, you’re not alone. The pieces are definitely for the more experienced lingerie wearer, making Campbell the perfect choice for the campaign (in our opinion, anyway).
To get a jump start on your Valentine’s Day shopping, head over to Agent Provocateur before the collection sells out! What do you think of Campbell’s sultry ads?
Kate Upton serenades Jamie Foxx à la Marilyn(Pic) Before being serenaded by buxom Kate Upton for his birthday Saturday night at Avenue, Jamie Foxx had dinner with his young “Annie” co-star Quvenzhané Wallis, 11, at nearby Bodega Negra with family and friends.
Spies said Foxx and the adults sipped Patrón Silver margaritas while cute Wallis stuck to Shirley Temples. Later, crafty Foxx hit Avenue, where Upton channeled Marilyn Monroe to sing her sultry “Happy Birthday” for his 47th.
We’re told that Upton arrived at the nightclub with Tigers pitcher boyfriend Justin Verlander when Foxx spotted them and “told the DJ to turn off the music to announce their arrival.”
Upton grabbed the mike to sing “Marilyn to JFK- style,” and “asked the crowd to help sing along,” our spy said.
How model Carol Alt saved ChristmasWho said models are shallow?
Former Sports Illustrated babe Carol Alt handed out 3,500 gifts from a City Sightseeing bus Saturday for the Police Athletic League Holiday Toy Drive with Bill Bratton, Robert Morgenthau and John Catsimatidis.
But when the volunteers ran out of basketballs, “One teary-eyed little boy was left who had really wanted one,” a spy said.
So, “Alt disappeared for about five minutes and found one for him. The boy was so excited.”
Naomi Campbell channels inner cougar for 'Empire' roleNaomi Campbell celebrated her role in the Fox hip-hop series “Empire” last week with real rapper Foxy Brown and pop diva Kylie Minogue.
Campbell plays a cougar in a steamy affair with the young scion of a hip-hop family.
She told Jo Piazza of her acting, “It’s been so therapeutic .?.?. You have to dig down deep into your own stuff and use your own pain and your life, everything that you’ve been through.”
Also at the New York screening: Tyson Beckford, “Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels and Gayle King.
Former Supermodel Beverly Johnson Says Bill Cosby Drugged HerBill Cosby is being sued for defamation, as another former supermodel has come forward saying he abused her.
In a column for Vanity Fair, former supermodel Beverly Johnson says Cosby attempted to assault her after she auditioned to be an extra on The Cosby Show in the 1980s. "I needed a big break badly and appearing on The Cosby Show seemed like an excellent way of getting Hollywood's attention," she writes. "[Cosby] asked what I wanted from my career going forward. He seemed genuinely interested in guiding me to the next level. I was on cloud nine."
Johnson says Cosby invited her to his brownstone to rehearse lines and offered her an espresso that he had prepared in his personal machine. "I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I'd been drugged — and drugged good," she writes, adding that she immediately began yelling at the comedian. "I recall his seething anger at my tirade and then him grabbing me by my left arm hard and yanking all 110 pounds of me down a bunch of stairs as my high heels clicked and clacked on every step. I feared my neck was going to break with the force he was using to pull me down those stairs."
Johnson says she remembers Cosby shoving her into a taxi, and that she woke up in her own bed the next day with no memory of how she got home.
According to Johnson, she decided to confront Cosby about the incident and called his house a few days later, but backed off after his wife answered and said it was too late for them to take calls (8 p.m. PT). She eventually decided to let the issue drop. "In the end, just like the other women, I had too much to lose to go after Bill Cosby," she writes. "I had a career that would no doubt take a huge hit if I went public with my story and I certainly couldn't afford that after my costly divorce and ongoing court fees."
At the same time, another of Cosby's alleged victims, Tamara Green, is suing the actor for defamation, USA Today reports. A lawyer for Tamara Green says Cosby's flat denials of her claims that he drugged and raped her in the 1970s in effect mean he has "publicly branded Plaintiff Green a liar."
This is the latest in a series of lawsuits that have been filed against Cosby by his alleged victims. The LAPD is investigating the multiple accusations against him.
'Next Top Model' contestant sues Tyra BanksA former "America's Next Top Model" contestant is suing Tyra Banks for $3 million, saying she was improperly denied a top prize because she used to be an escort.
City News Service says Angelea Preston filed the breach-of-contract suit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
It names Banks, who is the show's executive producer, and The CW network.
The lawsuit says Preston won the show's Cycle 17 in 2011 and was entitled to a package that included a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics and a magazine fashion spread.
Preston says she was wrongly disqualified because she had worked as an escort before taking part in the show.
Messages to an attorney and a manager for Banks weren't immediately returned.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Hire Food Trucks to Feed Eric Garner ProtestersThough they weren’t physically present, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen supported the N.Y.C. Eric Garner protests this weekend.
The singer and his supermodel wife (and one of our favorite celeb foodies) hired a number of food trucks to hand out free food during the demonstrations following a N.Y.C. grand jury’s decision last week to not indict a white police officer in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man.
“So much love for the super generous & thoughtful @chrissyteigen @johnlegend for their support. #BlackLivesMatter Now come get fed!” tweeted the Korean BBQ food truck Kimchi Taco.
In response, Teigen tweeted, ” @KimchiTruck @johnlegend wish we could be there!! thank you for being a part of it!”
And the generosity didn’t stop there. Teigen says the food trucks donated all the extra food to the homeless.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Girlfriend Toni Garrn Tells GQ: "I Always Wanted Four Kids"Toni Garrn has it made.
She is a powerhouse supermodel taking Victoria's Secret by storm, she is Leondardo DiCaprio's on-and-off girlfriend and, if it wasn't obvious already, she is drop dead gorgeous. But she has a lot more going for her than just those characteristics.
Garrn, who hails from Hamburg, Germany, is someone who believes that being bored just isn't an option. Always on the go, the blond bombshell tells GQ magazine that she is not one for vegging out.
"I never just do nothing. A weekend off?! Let's go somewhere. Let's fly somewhere," Garrn says. "I kind of know one day I'll have responsibilities and not be able to do this. But I don't have a dog. I don't even have a plant. I have nothing to take care of, which I love. One day I want it to be different, of course."
She has certainly taken her own advice about traveling, as she has been spotted jet-setting around the world with Leo. The couple has enjoyed lavish vacations to Bora Bora, the French Alps and St. Barts this year alone.
At just 22 years young, Garrn has a lifetime ahead of her before settling down, but the busy bee has already made up her mind about her future, including how many kids she wants to have!
"I'm a family person, and I always wanted four kids. But we'll see. We'll start with one at some point, I don't know," she tells the magazine.
With an A-list Oscar nominee boyfriend and an extremely successful career to boot, it must be tough to avoid the paparazzi heckles! But Garrn has a positive attitude about the buzz that comes with her lifestyle.
"I just don't go out or anything," she says in the interview. "I'm on my grandma's couch. But even my grandma's like, 'Are you okay?! Because this says...'"
At least she has her family's support and can joke about her sticky situation! But we can't feel too bad for her—she is dating Leo!
5 Things to Know About Lindsay Ellingson: The Victoria's Secret Angel Dishes on Ariana Grande, Her Worst Date & More!Lindsay Ellingson may be an Angel, but she's got her quirks just like every other mortal.
The Victoria's Secret Angel crushed the catwalk in London last week, looking every inch her heavenly title in gilded golden wings. But the 30-year-old supermodel, who's lent her gorgeous face to the likes of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino, is much more than a pretty face—she's downright funny!
The Angel's dealt with her fair share of awkward first dates, and you'll never guess what bizarre phobia keeps her away from certain smooth surfaces. Read on to find out five facts you'd never know about Ellingson, and tune into CBS tomorrow night to watch her and the rest of the Angels walk the Victoria's Secret fashion show!
1. "The worst date I've ever been on was when my hair caught on fire as I was leaning over to whisper something into a guy's ear. He was incredibly embarrassed by the smell of burning hair filling the room and rushed us out of the restaurant."
2. "One funny moment at Sean and mine's wedding was when we attempted 'the move' from Dirty Dancing at the reception: it was a total fail but hilarious!"
3. "I'm so excited to announce I'll be launching a cosmetic line called Wander Beauty next April! I've learned so much in the last 10 years as a model, and am obsessed with beauty products. My friends call me the walking Sephora because I carry such a variety of beauty products in my purse, they can always count on me for a touch up. I love doing their makeup as well as my own for red carpet events and dates. Follow us on Instagram, @Wander_Beauty!"
4. "I have a very weird phobia of velvet! I think it's called haptodysphoria. I absolutely can't touch it. My worst nightmare would be sleeping in a bed of velvet; it makes me nauseous!"
5. "If I could switch lives with any celebrity for a day it would have to be Ariana Grande! I am the worst singer, so I would love to have a voice like that. She blew me away at the Victoria's Secret show. Plus, having backup dancers would be pretty awesome!"
Could Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss be more than besties?It’s no secret that blond bombshells Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss are besties, but new photos show there might be more to it than that.
The leggy ladies were caught in a steamy embrace Thursday night in a VIP lounge during The 1975’s rock concert at Terminal 5 in Hell’s Kitchen.
The look-alike gal pals, who also held hands walking the runway this week, appeared to have their lips locked and their arms draped around each other, with the model pulling Swift’s face closer to hers.
The 24-year-old singer’s rep denied the kiss claims Friday.
“It’s sad that on the day it’s announced Taylor has three Grammy nominations for ‘Shake It Off,’ I have to shake off this crap,” the rep said.
Earlier this week, the blue-eyed babes shared the stage in London filming the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where they walked the catwalk hand-in-hand wearing matching black lingerie for Swift’s performance of hits off her wildly popular “1989” album.
The duo met at a Victoria’s Secret show last year and have been inseparable ever since — posting Instagram pics of their road trips, dancing in the front row of the American Music Awards and even sharing Swift’s Tribeca pad when they’re both in town.
Is That You, Lila Grace? Kate Moss Hits the Paddington Movie Premiere With Her Look-Alike Daughter(Pic) This mother and daughter look so much alike that we're tempted to call them a sister act.
Kate Moss made a red carpet appearance on Nov. 23 at the London premiere of the new film Paddington with her daughter Lila Grace, 12, and one of Lila's friends in tow. This marks the first time that Moss has attended a red carpet premiere with Lila, who really, really looks like her mom. (Lila's father is Moss' ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack.)
Kate's mini-me wore plaid pants, a cropped tee, layered jackets and Ash wedge sneakers (so punk chic). Her hair was pulled back into a ponytail (all the better for us to glimpse the strong resemblance to mom). Kate made a casual but stylish appearance in all-black—sporting skinnies, leather boots and a well-tailored peacoat.
And it looks like the premiere's rainy weather didn't get the group down: Lila Grace and Kate were all smiles in front of the cameras as Kate propped up a bubble umbrella to shield the girls from getting wet.
Kate and Lila bring to mind another mother-daughter pair that made us do a major double take: Cindy Crawford and her 13-year-old daughter, Kaia Gerber. Last month, Kaia took to Instagram with photos that showed her posing in her mom's old designer duds.
While Kaia has flexed her modeling genes with a campaign for Young Versace, Lila Grace has yet to formally enter the fashion world. But with those looks, we imagine it might only be a matter of time.
Cindy Crawford Is Headed for Cougar TownShe's a supermodel and a businesswoman, and now Cindy Crawford will be taking her talents to Cougar Town.
The star is set to appear on the TBS hit when it returns on Jan. 6 for its sixth and final season, the network tells PEOPLE exclusively.
It's yet to be seen what sort of trouble Crawford, 48, will find herself in with the Cul de Sac Crew, but one hint is that she will be playing herself in a surprise role.
The cast celebrated the comedy's 100th episode milestone Wednesday night in Culver City, California, where the tight-knit group opened up about saying goodbye to their characters and continuing to get "more outrageous" in the last season.
"Every episode this year has been really … fun," Courteney Cox told reporters. "It's been really silly and fun, and there's still been a lot of heart. We started out the first season, the first episode with a lot of heart."
Costar Josh Hopkins agreed, saying the crew has "earned" the right to be outrageous.
"The people that stuck with the show know the jokes that are on top of jokes that are on top of others jokes," he said. "We've kind of earned our wacky universe."
Black Friday shopping a religious experienceSupermodel Petra Nemcova rallied a group of religious leaders to Times Square for Rampage clothing’s Shop Peacefully campaign to promote peace on Black Friday.

Nemcova survived the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and founded the Happy Hearts Fund to help children who are victims of natural disasters.
Here Are 10 Hilarious Facts You Never Knew About Poppy DelevingneOK, calling it: Poppy Delevingne might be our new favorite person ever.
Seriously, the older of the Delevingne sisters—younger sis is supermodel Cara Delevingne—is funny, down-to-earth and supports our notion that a bowl of pasta a day makes everything, read: everything, just a little bit better.
While we know Cara for her wacky faces and sometimes-wild antics, Poppy is a riot too. The English model, who is launching a Resort 2015 bikini collection with swim and loungewear brand Solid & Striped, shared some, well, interesting facts that we would have never guessed if she hadn't told us (if these don't make you smile, you might want to check that your funny bone is still in place):
1. My nickname growing up was Froggy. Because I look like a frog, which is nice.
2. I eat pasta every day. I dream in spaghetti.
3. I support the Blue Marine Foundation, saving our oceans and making people aware of how vital they are for our planet. Plus, I have a weird obsession with hammerhead sharks.
4. I had a goldfish that lived for 15 years. I won him at a circus and called him Moby Dick.
5. I'm pretty sure I have 6,224 freckles on my face.
6. I can sing every single word to every single Spice Girls song ever made on the planet.
7. I have a phobia of buttons. Since I was a child, if someone hugged me with a shirt on I'd cry.
8. I've designed a bikini collection with beach brand Solid & Striped inspired by Alabama Worley [Patricia Arquette's character in True Romance], because she is my true style icon.
9. My secret man crush is Alan Rickman. So I guess it's not much of a secret anymore.
10. I think my feet are my prettiest feature. If there was an award for Foot Supermodel of the Year, I would win it.
Solid & Striped x Poppy Delevingne will launch Nov. 14 on Net-a-Porter.

Cara Delevingne Dating Unbroken Actor Jack O'Connell, Plus You'll Never Believe How Much She Makes in a Day!Looks like Cara Delevingne has a new man in her life.
The 22-year-old model and actor Jack O'Connell are dating, a source confirms to E! News. The insider adds that the good-looking duo have been together for about a month, although their romance is nothing serious.
"They're having fun," the source tells us of the model of the moment and the Unbroken star.
Rumors that the pair recently coupled up have been swirling as of late, and Delevingne herself seemingly confirmed the romance by way of a cheeky Instagram post in which she showcases O'Connell's "love bites." She added a heart emoticon to the telling shot as well as the hashtag #fittybum, keeping O'Connell's face concealed for the revealing pic.
While the British actor has yet to garner mega-fame in the United States, O'Connell is certainly on the cusp of super stardom as he plays the late Olympic track star and World War II veteran Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort, which hits theaters on Christmas day.
Meanwhile, Delevingne is sitting pretty as she continues to rake in cash from her plethora of projects, starring in fashion campaigns for Topshop and Burberry, designing a line with DKNY and beefing up her acting resume in addition to strutting her stuff on countless high-fashion catwalks.
And no surprise, her efforts are seriously paying off.
According to Elle UK, fashion's It girl earns a whopping £6,500—about $10,292—per day, which means that while you were sleeping for the past eight hours, the British beauty netted a cool $3,430.
Hey, apparently, it pays to be Cara (crazy faces, included).

Doutzen Kroes: ‘It’s Really Hard’ Juggling Two KidsNow mom to 3-month-old daughter Myllena Mae and 3½-year-old son Phyllon Joy, model Doutzen Kroes didn’t know how she was going to handle double duty at first.
“It’s crazy. In the beginning when [Myllena] was just born I was like, ‘How am I going to do this?'” Kroes told reporters Oct. 20 at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills.
But now the mom-of-two has finally found her rhythm and is learning to perfect the balance of her two babies.
“It was really shocking, but now after three months I’m getting into it,” she admits. “I’m okay doing it by myself too when my husband [Dutch deejay and producer Sunnery James] is traveling — so I’ve been practicing and it’s amazing. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
How does Kroes juggle the demands of a newborn and toddler by herself?
“You just have to stay calm. It’s really hard,” she says, adding an occasional night out helps.
“I’m really grateful for my job that I can go to events like this and get [my] hair and make-up [done],” the model mama, who admits she wears sweatpants and keeps her face make-up free at home, says. “It’s something that a lot of moms don’t have and I’m very blessed.”
But the biggest (and sweetest) surprise for Kroes? “That you can love two babies at the same time — and [it's] the same equal love — and that I can also be with two kids,” she explains. “It’s almost like if you have to do it, you can do it.”
And after two kids, this proud mom bounced right back to her pre-pregnancy body, showing off her svelte figure in a white Calvin Klein Collection dress at the event.
Kroes credits her incredible turnaround to a healthy lifestyle. “I’m very active and [play] lots of sports and [it's] also genetics I think — a little bit of everything,” says the Victoria’s Secret stunner. “I’m very mindful of what I do and how much I work out and what I eat.”
It's Splitsville for Chanel Iman and A$AP RockyAfter a little more than a year together, model Chanel Iman and rapper A$AP Rocky have called it quits.
“They are no longer together,” a source told E! News. “This happened about a few weeks ago. It was just not working out with both of their busy travel schedules. Time away from each other played a big part in the breakup.”
Rocky, 26, is currently working on his second album, while Iman, 23, travels internationally for fashion shoots.
In April, sources revealed to Page Six that the couple was secretly engaged.
The duo was spotted together at Coachella earlier this year and recently appeared in Vogue’s September issue in a joint photo shoot.
Chrissy Teigen Quits Twitter in Wake of Controversial Gun Control TweetChrissy Teigen is taking a Twitter time-out.

Teigen initially documented the fallout of her Tweet, sounding off on the death threats and criticism she received.
"Sorry you don't understand that is a knock at america and our issues with gun control. No one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting," she wrote.
But as the critical Tweets continued, she added, "It's been awhile since I inadvertently pissed a ton of people off. Forgot how much it sucks."
She was also criticized on TV by Fox News' Andrea Tantaros, who said, "This is the problem when models start to talk; it plays into that dumb model stereotype."
Teigen continued responding to the controversy Thursday morning – until she finally decided to call it quits.
"I can't see anything through the sea of hate and anger that is now my Twitter. Seriously I can't sift through it all," she wrote Thursday morning, before her final Tweet.
Brinkley attends memorial service for Eileen FordChristie Brinkley was one of many fine-looking women of a certain age who attended the memorial service for Eileen Ford at St. Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue on Saturday.
The founder of Ford Models died in July at the age of 92, having revolutionized the fashion industry representing generations of beauties she treated protectively as if they were her own daughters.
The mourners included Dayle Haddon, Karen Bjornson and Carmen Dell’Orefice, who is still modeling at age 83.
As photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders exited the church, Brinkley said how much she had loved Eileen and that she had known her for 40 years.
“Carmen, I think you’ve got her beat!” someone remarked.
Carmen then recalled that she first met Eileen at 14, nearly 70 years ago.
Gisele Bündchen Surfs in Plunging Swimsuit in Chanel No. 5 AdIs anything more seductive than Gisele Bundchen and splash of Chanel No. 5? We think not.
Chanel's new short film starring the supermodel, out today, is just what you'd expect: a beautiful and brief peek into the life of a classic Chanel gal.
Set to the sensual tune of Lo-Fang's rendition of "You're the One That I Want" (yep, the Grease song), The One That I Want begins with a sultry morning surf for the supermodel, Chanel surfboard in tow. The dizzyingly romantic film follows the 34-year-old throughout her whirlwind day, from spending time with her child to jetting off to a luxe photo shoot. Oh, and passionately falling in love whilst dripping in blinding No. 5 diamonds.
Le sigh, we have got to get some of that perfume!
The fragrance flick is a truly star-studded production, with all the Hollywood charm that accompanies a Baz Luhrmann-directed piece. New York City skylines, the Hamptons, glitzy parties and sparkling Chanel logos comprise the backdrops for this stunning short. And as for Gisele's on-screen love interest? That's Game of Thrones heartthrob Michiel Huisman.
"It's amazing how she can use her body and convey sensuality or strength," Luhrmann said of working with Gisele in a behind-the-scenes clip. "[Gisele's] an aspirational image of a woman who's perhaps almost impossible to be. You aspire to her, that's the idea. Gisele herself from my experience is extremely down to earth, very funny, very forthright, very intelligent and a very forward moving, powerful woman."
Gisele isn't the first A-lister to star in a Chanel No. 5 short film, following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman, who starred in her own Luhrmann-directed Chanel No. 5 short back in 2004.

Coco Rocha Expecting First ChildShe’s about to release her first book, Study of Pose, but Coco Rocha has another debut on the way.
The model and her husband, artist James Conran, are expecting a baby, she announced Monday on social media.
“We are absolutely thrilled and elated to announce that after four years of marriage we are expanding our family and expecting our first child spring of 2015!” she captioned a video posted to Instagram.
There’s no hint yet on whether it will be a boy or girl, but we do know what Rocha’s mom Rocky wants her future grandchild to call her — and it’s not Grandma.
“They have to call her by her first name,” Rocha, 26, told PEOPLE this past summer. “I think this is a new thing, women not wanting to be called grandma.”
Added Rocky, “I’m old in skin, but not in my thinking.”
Rocha and Conran wed in 2010.

Chrissy Teigen Talks About Her 'Ideal Relationship' with John LegendFor Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, absence truly does make the heart grow fonder.
Celebrating one year of wedded bliss with a trip to Italy and France earlier this month, the supermodel and "All of Me" singer are "in such an ideal relationship," says Teigen.
"I'm sure there's a lot of people out there that wake up to the same person every single day and that's beautiful to them," she told PEOPLE Tuesday night at the launch of the brand new Piperlime.
"For us, it's exciting to have time away and then be together and make up for that lost time," she explains.
While spending quality time together on their anniversary trip, Teigen, 28, spiced things up for her husband, 35, by surprising him with a trip to strip club Crazy Horse in Paris.
"I probably liked it more than him," she says, laughing.
And though it might look like the couple also keeps things hot by walking around in the buff at home – she's often spotted sporting just a towel on the couple's social media accounts – the Sports Illustrated cover girl insists she's actually kind of shy about baring her bod.
"I don't care if I wear swimsuits for a living," she says. "If the lights are on in the house, I am still covering my little tush. My good friends call me Terry Terrycloth because I'm always in a towel. I'm a little modest."
Legend, on the other hand, has no problem showing off his fit physique in front of his wife.
"He is more naked than I am," she says. "That man will just walk."
Hepburn's granddaughter has fashion world buzzingClad in a crisp white Thomas Pink shirt and jeans, Emma Ferrer is leaping through the crosswalk at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue while a New York Post photographer snaps away. Natives and tourists alike stop to gawk and whisper: She looks familiar.
“Couldn’t you rent out Fifth Avenue for me?” laughs Ferrer, a girlish smile across her face.
Minutes later, an elderly woman interrupts Ferrer to ask for directions. The beauty stops posing and happily obliges. A bit shy at first, she’s blossoming amid Midtown’s hustle and bustle.
“I walk down the streets of Manhattan and I get so energized,” says the 20-year-old brunette, whose beauty and grace is so eerily familiar because she is the granddaughter of Audrey Hepburn, who made Fifth Avenue come alive in the iconic 1961 New York film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Though Ferrer is Hollywood royalty, the student at Italy’s Florence Academy of Art had been cloaked in anonymity.
That is, until she graced the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar, which was shot by Michael Avedon, the grandson of the late photographer Richard Avedon, who considered Hepburn his great muse.
With her grandmother’s long eyelashes, full lips and effortless poise (she’s studied ballet her entire life), the fashion world was besotted. The story received worldwide attention, turning Ferrer into a modern-day Cinderella.
“The response to the article was a lot greater and bigger than I could have imagined, partly because I didn’t know what to expect from the shoot and how it would be received in the fashion world,” says Ferrer, whose father is Sean Ferrer, the son of Hepburn and actor-director Mel Ferrer. (Her mother, Leila Ferrer, is divorced from her dad.)
Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz has even tapped Ferrer to walk in the fabled fashion house’s Paris show at the end of September, she reveals for the first time to The Post.
“I am so nervous, though,” admits Ferrer, who describes herself as “studious, goal-?oriented and a lover of wit.”
When she’s not studying classical painting, she’s reading art books, perfecting her Italian, Spanish and French and creating art with oil paints.
And she hopes to soon sign with a modeling agency.
“I want a career in the arts,” she says. “And modeling is an amazing accompaniment to that.”
In December, Ferrer is moving from Florence to Manhattan, where she is taking up temporary residence in a friend’s apartment, so she can finish her studies at her school’s new spinoff campus in Jersey City.
“[The apartment is] tiny, really, really small, but I guess that’s normal here, right?” she says. “Living in Florence has been amazing, but I am ready to be in New York, where everything is happening. It’s going to be a dream.”
The 5-foot-10 stunner was in New York earlier this month to explore her new home city — and to attend her first fashion shows.
Escorted by Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey, she took in the collections of Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Versus, Milly and Carolina Herrera.
“Not to say I am known, but no one pounced on me, which is good, because I really enjoyed just sitting back and watching everyone,” says Ferrer of the Wang show.
“I was between Nicki Minaj and Skrillex,” she adds, eyes widening.
Bailey, for one, was taken by her self-possession.
“Some of the photographers kept referring to her as a princess,” Bailey tells The Post. “Of course she isn’t, but the fact is they so enjoyed having someone to photograph who has such great manners and commands attention in such a quiet, unobtrusive way.”
At night, Ferrer hit the town with Avedon, who shuttled her to Acme and the Electric Room to toast their Harper’s Bazaar shoot. (It was Avedon’s first cover.)
Despite a hectic schedule, she found time to volunteer for UNICEF, an organization her grandmother famously championed, and visit the city’s museums.
“I went to the Met twice,” she enthuses. “I forgot that museums that have collections like that exist.”
How did the granddaughter of fashion’s most beloved icon stay under the radar for 20 years, especially in a world where boldface offspring routinely exploit their growing pains for reality ratings?
Born in Switzerland a year after her famous grandmother passed away in 1993, Ferrer moved to Los Angeles when she was 4 and then to Florence at age 14. She has two much younger half-brothers.
She says she was happy to spend her formative years in Italy, far away from the air kisses of Tinseltown — an environment that helped her stay grounded.
“During Fashion Week, people were saying, ‘Give me your Instagram and Twitter,’ ” she says. “I don’t have any of that.”
That lack of a digital footprint didn’t stop Bailey, who was looking for a subject to work with Avedon — someone on par with the great beauties his grandfather had photographed.
During a brainstorming session, Bailey mentioned that her favorite Avedon subject was Hepburn, which prompted the magazine’s photo director to say she was sure the screen great had a granddaughter.
“We all looked at each other and thought, ‘We better Google this and find out,’” Bailey says. “We found just one image. That was all there was of Emma online. And it was of her adjusting her father’s tie. It was so charming and elegant, and you can see from that image alone just how beautiful she is.”
There was no email address listed for Ferrer, but, through an editor, Bailey was able to contact Ferrer’s father, who presented the opportunity to his daughter.
“At first I was like, ‘Really, I’ve never done this type of thing. I’d be absolutely hopeless,’?” Ferrer recounts.
She was also hesitant because she didn’t want to “exploit” her grandmother’s image.
But she finally agreed, and within three days, the shoot — held in a Florentine studio — was under way. She says she was stiff, but Avedon worked his magic to put her at ease.
“Getting to know Michael helped a lot. He was just really quirky and played loud music,” she says.
The resulting series of photographs pays homage to some of her grandmother’s most iconic looks.
“I think a lot of people have certain expectations about what the photographs imply. It’s interesting to see what people expect of me and then relate it back to the person I am,” says Ferrer, who hasn’t seen all of Hepburn’s movies, but names “Funny Face” as her favorite.
Asked if she thinks her grandmother would be proud of her foray into fashion, Ferrer offers a thoughtful, level-headed response.
“I’d like to think my grandmother would be proud of me for other things I’ve accomplished. I was a hard worker at school. I graduated at the top of my class. I don’t know how she would feel about this in particular.
“I would like to become a woman I feel like she was in her strength and compassion, elegance and kindness. Everyone always talks about how kind and down-to-earth she was, you know,” says Ferrer, who doesn’t believe her lineage entitles her to a free ride.
“I’m a believer in the lottery of birth,” she explains. “You are born into something by pure chance.”
Threesomes and vodka: The wild rise of Kate MossWhen John Galliano cast a very young, very unknown Kate Moss in his spring/summer 1990 show, he was struck by the poignancy of her otherness: She had come in for fittings in her thrift-store finds and beat-up boots, her long hair hanging in strings, each day surrounded by world-famous warrior models plated in Versace and Chanel who made it quite clear they thought this plain little foundling did not belong.
“We were looking for new girls,” Galliano said, “and wow — I’d found my rough little diamond.”
At the time, Kate considered herself “feral,” but Galliano chose Kate to open the show. She hadn’t eaten all day and was terrified. She’d later say she felt like she “was up there on my own,” and when the show was over, Kate went to the after-party and guzzled so much whiskey that she missed her flight the next day.
She was hung over and disoriented and intimidated, and she loved it. Her entree into this new world, however long it was meant to last, had already meant a higher class of party with a higher class of people.
She was no longer interested in hanging out at the low-ceilinged local pub, knocking back swarmy, lethal concoctions of cider and lager. Soon, she’d be training her palate at the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz in Paris, where she began drinking fizzy cocktails made of gin and Champagne.
“When I used to come back home and get into our car — which wasn’t air-conditioned — and a house with no pool — I was like, ‘I’m not staying here forever,’?” Kate said. “I never had that feeling of, ‘That’s your lot.’?”
One photographer in Paris had actually told Kate that she had no chance at all, that she was “just another common bitch.”
Kate Moss, just 15, looked at him with disbelief. And she laughed.
‘The Waif Thing’
Kate Moss was spotted by a modeling agent at age 14, walking through JFK Airport with her middle-class British parents. But her Polaroid was stuck into the “maybe” drawer until Kate’s mentor, the fashion photographer Corinne Day, plucked it out — launching her career in 1990 with a striking image that made the cover of UK style bible The Face.
“Corinne would make me cry,” Kate said.
That was the point.
“The more I piss you off,” Corinne would say, “the better pictures I get.”
By 1992, Kate had been picked as the new face of Calvin Klein, and now she had to be topless for the campaign. She dreaded it. Early in her career, she had considered getting implants, but she changed her mind once she began getting work. It was another thing that set her apart.
She was teamed with Mark Wahlberg, then known as “Marky Mark,” a hip-hop wannabe with a band called The Funky Bunch and a brother in New Kids on the Block.
It was not a happy set. Wahlberg spent some downtime tugging his crotch while Kate rolled her eyes. Glenn O’Brien, who wrote the script for the TV spots, says Wahlberg would look at the pages and cross out things he didn’t think sounded like him, “a sort of white South Boston version of Ebonics,” O’Brien says.
Wahlberg also made it clear that Kate was, to him, nothing special. “I wasn’t into the waif thing,” he said later. “She kind of looked like my nephew.”
“It didn’t feel like me at all,” Kate said. “I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks.”
By now, Kate was drinking heavily. She saw a doctor and was prescribed Valium, but her boyfriend’s mother — whom she was staying with in New York — forbade Kate to take it.
“Nobody takes care of you mentally,” Kate said. “I thought I was going to die.”
That campaign saved the house of Calvin Klein and launched Kate’s career.
“For me, Kate’s body represented closing the door on the excessiveness of the ’80s,” Klein said. “So many women models would come to me where they’ve distorted their bodies by implants in their breasts, changing their hips, changing their knees .?.?. I mean, you just cannot imagine what models were doing to themselves, what women have been doing to themselves. I think something changed dramatically in the ’90s. And I was looking for someone who could represent something that’s more natural.”
The culture at large didn’t see Kate that way: Up against the skyscraper models of the ’80s, their very perfection a comment on American supremacy, a small-boned, flat-chested model like Kate Moss was heresy. Someone like her hadn’t been seen since Twiggy in the ’60s. Suddenly, Kate and Calvin Klein were accused of promoting anorexia, heroin use, child pornography and the downfall of Western civilization.
She was on the sides of buses, kiosks and pay phones, naked and draped across a velvet sofa in a ramshackle room, “FEED ME,” often scrawled across the ad by protesters.
“I was thin,” Kate said, “but that’s because I was doing shows, working really hard .?.?. You’d get to work in the morning. There was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started.”
Kate spent much of 1993 in tears. This was the same girl who had once been told by her mother that life wasn’t always fun and refused to believe it: “Why the f-?-k not? Why the f-?-k can’t I have fun all the time?’?” Now she was beginning to see.
By the time Kate met Johnny Depp in 1994, he had been divorced from his first wife and engaged three more times — most recently to Winona Ryder — and had just altered his famous “Winona Forever” tattoo to “Wino Forever.” Depp was deep into booze and drugs, and his LA nightclub, the Viper Room, was his personal clubhouse, a space where celebrities could party with abandon, where it was rumored Depp and his friends could watch knowing patrons have sex through a one-way mirror.
Kate and Johnny were the chicest, druggiest couple since Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg, the epitome of cool in a “Trainspotting” culture.
But Kate was often on edge with Johnny, afraid of his moods but more afraid he’d leave her. She overlooked a lot, including one night in October 1994, in the presidential suite at New York City’s Mark Hotel.
The cops were called and found Kate sitting amid the wreckage; Depp was arrested for causing nearly $10,000 in damage to a $2,200-a-night room, but even his perp walk was the height of grunge chic: There he was in low-slung bluejeans, a grubby white T-shirt, a brown jacket and a green knit cap pulled over long, lanky hair, sunglasses on.
“Johnny invented grunge,” director John Waters said. “He looked good under arrest.”
Not everyone got the appeal. Anna Sui recalls going over to Kate’s apartment in the Village — in the same building as Carolyn Bessette, who worked at Calvin Klein and had lobbied hard for Kate — for a small after-party. Johnny ignored Kate.
“He was always in the corner, with his guy friends,” Sui says. “I think we were just, like, the fashion people or something.”
Just as she didn’t feel equal to her fellow supermodels, Kate didn’t feel worthy of Depp. She did everything he told her to. Suddenly, the girl who had last read “The Celestine Prophecy” was reading the Beats and trying to pronounce “Kerouac” to reporters.
“It must make you feel secure if you know what you want to do,” she said. “I want to find something I really love, because I don’t love modeling. I’ve got all these people around who are so passionate about what they do. I envy them .?.?. Fashion’s not satisfying to me at all. You can’t change the world through fashion because the average person doesn’t look at fashion pictures.”
She had no idea how revolutionary she already was — and no sense of how out of control.
Depp, who was beginning to slow the partying down, couldn’t take it. In one sitting, Kate could snort 3 grams of coke and drink a bottle of vodka, which a doctor said was the best liquor for preserving her looks. She put stuff away so hard and fast that her nickname was “The Tank.” A friend says she suspected Depp was cheating on her.
“She’d phone him all the time, on sets, in hotels,” says the friend. “She never expressed concern about his drug use. She expressed concern about being separated from him on jobs.”
Not long after appearing together at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Kate and Johnny, unraveling for months, broke up for good. They had a massive blow-up at his house in LA. She thought they had been living there together, but he thought she had been crashing.
He had tried living with her in New York, but that lasted less than six months. As wild as Johnny may have been, even he couldn’t take the partying and the clinginess.
According to a friend, he told Kate that she was “a crazy bitch,” that they were done. Kate couldn’t believe it.
“Johnny broke her heart,” says the friend. “She went mad.”
‘A very soulless life’
Kate threw herself into partying with her movie-star and rock-star friends. The tabloids called the clique “the Primrose Hill set,” after the posh neighborhood they shared. She was reeling after her split with Johnny.
“Sleeping around, doing more drugs,” a friend says of that time. “It gets back to him that she’s out of control, and he’s not surprised. He did drugs, but he knew how much to take and how much not to, and she just wouldn’t stop.”
The British tabloids began reporting Kate’s hookups with several of her female friends — including Jude Law’s wife, Sadie Frost, who, this friend says, began to fall in love with Kate.
When Frost told Law, he was excited by it. The three became entangled. Normally, Sadie was wildly possessive of Jude — she claimed to have sent “little death threats” to his newest co-star, a 16-year-old Claire Danes — but Kate was Queen of Primrose Hill, so Sadie kept her mouth shut.
“They all partied together, slept together,” says a colleague. “It was a very soulless life they led.”
“Kate can drink anyone under the table,” says a family friend. “She can drink a liter of vodka in one sitting. She’ll go out on a Thursday and come back on a Sunday.” Anyone who tries to quit or dial it back is a traitor to the cause; Kate’s friends are expected to party at all hours, whether it’s 7 p.m. or 5 a.m.
“She doesn’t like her own company,” says the family friend of that time. “She’s addled by the drugs and doesn’t like to think.”
When Johnny Depp hooked up with French starlet Vanessa Paradis — who became pregnant within weeks — Kate spun out.
She took off for a wild two weeks in Ibiza, and Jason Lake, her island hookup, spilled all to the press, expressing amazement that this “kinda rough” girl who knocked back vodka and tequila every night was the world’s most famous model.
“I was living fast,” Kate said of that time. “It was, ‘Sleep? Why? Why not go on? There’s too much to do.’?”
Anna Nicole Smith's estate denied late husband's fortuneThe estate of Anna Nicole Smith has failed in its final bid to obtain her late husband’s money, seven years after the death of the Playboy model and reality TV star.
A federal judge in Orange County on Monday rejected the effort to obtain about $44 million from the estate of Texas billionaire J. Howard Marshall, whom Smith married in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26. The oil tycoon died the next year. His will left his $1.6 billion estate to his son and nothing to Smith.
Smith, under her real name, Vickie Lynn Marshall, challenged the will, claiming that her husband promised to leave her more than $300 million above the cash and gifts showered on her during their 14-month marriage. A Houston jury said Marshall was mentally fit and under no undue pressure when he wrote the will.
Over the course of nearly 20 years, the Texas bankruptcy court and local and federal courts, including the US Supreme Court, all rejected Smith’s various attempts to overturn Marshall’s will and trust and to obtain money from his estate.
The efforts continued even after Smith died of an accidental drug overdose in February 2007.
On Monday, US District Judge David O. Carter denied a request from Smith’s estate to sanction the estate of Marshall’s son, E. Pierce Marshall.
“Time spent litigating the relationship between Vickie Lynn and J. Howard has extended for nearly five times the length of their relationship and nearly twenty times the length of their marriage. It is neither reasonable nor practical to go forward,” the judge said in his ruling. He noted that it was the last surviving piece of decades of litigation.
“The American taxpayer has supported the burden of this litigation for many years, and it is time for this suit to no longer ‘drag its weary length before the Court,'” Carter concluded, quoting a Supreme Court decision in the case that itself quoted Charles Dickens’ “Bleak House.”
An email message for Howard K. Stern, the executor of Smith’s estate, was not immediately returned Tuesday.
G. Eric Brunstad Jr., attorney for the Marshall family, said in a statement that the family agreed with the judge that it was time to stop the litigation.

Lily Aldridge Strips Down for One Very Sexy Dinner Party(Video) Well that’s one way to sell clothes!
In a new Victoria’s Secret ad, the brand takes a cue from Johnnie Walker Blue and casts Angel Lily Aldridge in a mini-movie promoting the #LessIsMore campaign and a new collection of clothing.
In the clip, Aldridge hosts a fancy dinner party for friends, but in a bit of a clumsy streak, spills food and wine on herself again, and again … and again.
Luckily, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model — married to Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill and mom to daughter Dixie, 2 — just happens to have a closet in her kitchen (lucky!), and changes into several cute outfits over the course of her night (though her dinner guests definitely start to take notice). And when things get really messy toward the end, well … guess a bra and underwear will have to do.
Dinner sure looked good, though!

Billy Joel Sings 'Uptown Girl' to Christie Brinkley at Madison Square Garden(Video) Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley may have divorced, but he's still her Piano Man.
The 60-year-old beauty had front-row seats at Joel's Madison Square Garden concert Thursday night, and Joel directed his camera crew to film her dancing for "Uptown Girl" (the 1983 video for which Brinkley famously starred in).
You can see Joel beckon his camera crew over mid-song on the YouTube video above, and the uploader eventually pans up to the screens above the stage showing Brinkley at the song's end.
Brinkley posted several shots from the concert on her Instagram: One selfie was captioned "he's still got it" and another showed her daughter Sailor filming Joel's performance from the front row. (instagram.com)
Joel was named a "franchise" by the Garden earlier this year: He'll play a monthly concert until demand dies down, or until the lights go out on Broadway, whichever comes first.
Kate Upton Reveals What Has "Prevented" Her From Posing NudeWhile it's common for high-fashion models to pose nude—including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen—Kate Upton, who is undoubtedly one of the hottest models of the moment, isn't sure if stripping down for the camera is the right move for her career.
Men of the world, we'll let you have a moment to shed a tear.
"For me those photos are art," the 22-year-old stunner, who has graced the covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Sports Illustrated, explained to Details.com of high-fashion nude pics. "Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it's received in a very positive way."
So then why does the blond bombshell have her own hesitations? Two words: social media.
"But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don't think that my pictures would be received in the way that I'd want them to be received," Justin Verlander's GF admitted. "That's why I've stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that."
(It's worth noting that the sexy stunner has posed topless for German Vogue—and even defied gravity in a bikini—although she has yet to bare all in the name of "art").
This isn't the first time The Other Woman star has been asked if she'd be willing to shed her clothes for a shoot. Upton previously opened up about the possibility of posing for Playboy while speaking with British GQ last month.
"I never like to say never because there are circumstances that I could do pretty much anything if it inspires me and if I think that it's cool at the time," she shared. "But right now, at this point in my career, I'm not doing Playboy."
During her chat with Details, the buxom beauty was also asked how she deals with the fact that the majority of the population refers to the stunner as a "blond bombshell"?
"It's where I've started and it's what I've accomplished, so I'm happy about it," she said. "But the more my career grows, I think that people will see that I have a lot more to offer and a lot more to give, but I want to do it right and that's why it's taking me time. I'm patient about it...I always had in my mind where I should be at a certain stage."
Guess we'll have to wait and see if nudity will ever be part of the equation.
Christie Brinkley to share secrets from her career in new memoirHamptons insiders are whispering Christie Brinkley is writing “a memoir” with dishy tales of her multiple marriages, modeling career and East End real estate dealings.
But rumors that Brinkley will spill such secrets are, perhaps unfortunately, only apocryphal.
Brinkley will instead, less sensationally, “share the secrets she’s learned throughout her 40-year career” in the book, her rep said, with “a holistic look at diet, fitness, vitality.”
Brinkley’s being very hands-on, we hear, and will “consult many experts and professionals in the fields of beauty, fashion and wellness to ensure her information is up-to-the-minute.”

J/k, Fallon. It's all in good fun, though he did admit to peeking with Ms. Klum. But she must not have minded very much, because when their first attempt at a human wheel didn't work, she suggests trying another way that has them rolling around on the ground face to face. Woo woo.

Passengers Claim Kate Moss She Got "Very Drunk" at Airport, Boarded Plane Without a TicketIf you're looking for well-organized travel arrangements, Kate Moss may not be your girl.
The model was spotted at Bodrum Airport in southwest Turkey Monday night, trying her best to board an EasyJet flight to London's Gatwick Airport.
There was one minor problem however…she didn't seem to have a ticket.
In addition to that tiny detail, passengers aboard her earlier flight claimed that the 40-year-old appeared to be drunk.
Eyewitnesses took to Twitter to describe their run-in with Moss, with one even saying, "Just got off my flight with a very drunk Kate Moss."
A source at the airport told MailOnline that "The general consensus was that she didn't have a ticket but after chatting to the manager for some time, she was whisked off and ushered onto a flight."
They added, "It was pretty obvious that Kate had had a bit to drink as she was talking loudly and didn't seem worried about being seen."
The famous blonde was snapped by travelers walking around the terminal and approaching several counters in an effort to speak with someone about boarding a flight.
She was seen walking next to two female friends, one of whom was pushing a stroller full of luggage.
Despite the reports about Moss' behavior, she (unsurprisingly) managed to look downright chic in an all-black, boho-inspired outfit complete with gold-embellished ankle boots.
She also carried a bright blue tote bag on her arm as she chatted with flight attendants and fans that approached her during her time at Bodrum.
Luckily, Moss got home safe and sound within just a few short hours.
Kate Upton Makes a Plea for a New Puppy-Find Out What Boyfriend Justin Verlander Thinks of the Idea!(Photo) Perhaps if Kate Upton gave Justin Verlander puppy dog eyes in this photo, the baseball player might be persuaded to adopt a new furry friend. On Tuesday, the supermodel Instagrammed a picture of herself holding an adorable dog and tagged her boyfriend in the post, writing, "Pleaseeeee @justinverlander."
The Detroit Tigers' starting pitcher, 31, responded by Instagramming a picture of his reddish Heinz 57 mix. "@kateupton If anyone objects raise your hand!" he wrote. "#RileyObjects #jealous #RileyWins."
Verlander and his ex-girlfriend Emily Yuen adopted "the coolest dog ever" when they were in college.
"We went to the SPCA, and he kept licking our faces," he told Richmond Magazine in 2008. "We've been building a bond with this dog. He's been around since day one. He's experienced everything with me."
Upton, meanwhile, regularly posts pictures of her dog Boots via Twitter and Instagram. While the 22-year-old blond beauty may not end up getting a new dog, she's already got a Tiger of her very own!
Sunnery James and Doutzen Kroes Welcome Daughter Myllena MaeShe’s a model mama — of two!
Doutzen Kroes welcomed her second child with husband Sunnery James on Wednesday, July 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Daughter Myllena Mae was born at 10 a.m. in Holland.
“Both of our families are beyond thrilled to finally meet our beautiful and healthy little girl,” the parents tell PEOPLE. “She’s a true blessing!”
She added on Twitter Wednesday: “A miracle saw the light of day this morning. Welcome Myllena Mae. Mommy, Daddy and brother Phyllon are super proud!”
The Victoria’s Secret model, 29, and the Dutch deejay and producer are already parents to son Phyllon Joy, 3½.
In February, Kroes wasn’t shy about sharing the news of her pregnancy, daring to bare it all — including her baby belly! — in a black and white photo she posted to Instagram.
“This is not a #throwbackthursday this is now!” she wrote, later confirming she was expecting a girl.
Kate Upton: You're ugly if you don't have a curvy bodyKate Upton is giving modesty a try.
The buxom 22-year-old opts for a drastically different look in the September issue of Elle UK (available on newsstands and digital on Friday), posing in oversize pieces that hide her trademark curves.
“I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits,” said Upton, who once dated “Dancing with the Stars” heartthrob Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
She revealed that the Sunshine State subscribes to its own set of beauty standards. “You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body,” she explained. “And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!’ And then people say: ‘Oh, wow, you’re healthy.’ And you’re like, ‘Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!’”
Though her shape is envied, Upton confessed she can be self-conscious about her figure. “Everybody at some point in their life doesn’t like themselves,” she said. “It’s not like I look in the mirror and think, ‘I’m killing it. My eyes are killing it.’ No, a lot of times I’m puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don’t.”
But should modeling not work out, Upton has a backup plan. “I would be fine leaving all of this behind and living on a farm somewhere,” she confessed.
Doutzen Kroes: Why I Needed the Sex of My Baby Confirmed - TwiceDoutzen Kroes always dreamed of having a daughter.
So when her doctor told her she was pregnant with a baby girl, it took a little convincing on her part.
“I wanted a girl so badly — I had it confirmed by two doctors!” the model mama, who shows off her baby belly in an exclusive photo from her upcoming feature in the September issue of Glamour, tells the magazine.
Although the Victoria’s Secret model is used to showing off her shape, Kroes, 29, admits she had to get creative with her bump during a recent sexy shoot.
“I was four and a half months pregnant when shooting the Reveal Calvin Klein campaign, but we worked around it,” she says. “Charlie Hunnam, my costar, is the sweetest guy. He made me very comfortable on set — because, uh, I wasn’t wearing a lot!”
But don’t count on a quick bounce back — or an immediate return to the runway — after her baby arrives. “We’ll see how that goes,” Kroes, who is also mom to 3½-year-old son Phyllon Joy, shares.
“I don’t like to stress about [my body]. I look to my sister, a nutritionist, to help me lose the weight.”
And while she has yet to make her big debut, Kroes’s baby girl already has a bright future. “My agent’s already joking about signing her to the agency,” the mom-to-be says.
Behati Prinsloo: Adam Levine and I Definitely Plan to Have KidsBehati Prinsloo doesn’t like to look too far ahead, but one thing she is planning for is children with husband Adam Levine.
The Victoria’s Secret model, 25, who wed the Maroon 5 singer, 35, in Mexico earlier this month, told Net-a-Porter that she has a “definite” plan to have children. But apart from that, she likes to keep her future vague.
“I have no expectations,” she said. “Not in a bad way, but I’ve learned that you can’t plan ahead. I live day by day and see what happens.”
Prinsloo said she never even expected to break into modeling. “I was tall, skinny and awkward,” she recalled. “Growing up, I’d look at magazines and think, ‘These pretty girls are actually doctors, right?’ I didn’t even know about Kate Moss.”
But Prinsloo got her chance at 16 when a photographer approached her while she was visiting Cape Town and asked her if she’d like to model. She ended up staying in South Africa, living with six other models for three months.
“It was the best time,” she said. “I can’t believe my parents let me do it, because my dad is strict. But later he told me, ‘I let you go because it was a chance to see the world. We [couldn't] give you the opportunity to travel; you [had to] experience life outside.’”

Kate Upton Talks About Her ''Curvy'' Figure: "I've Been Begging for This Body My Whole Life!"Kate Upton is opening up about her signature curves!
In the latest issue of Elle U.K., the 22-year-old buxom blond beauty says she's always wanted a bodacious bod like the one she has today.
"When I first started modeling, I was a normal catalogue model," Upton tells the mag. "Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I'm from Florida, it's all about being in bathing suits. It's a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don't have a curvy body. And I didn't have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!'"
The hot model added, "And then people say, ‘Oh, wow, you're healthy.' And you're like, 'Wait, what? I've been begging for this body my whole life!'"
Well all that waiting paid off! Upton's ample cleavage and killer curves have landed her on the cover of countless magazines, including Vogue and Sports Illustrated!
Meanwhile, for the cover of Elle U.K., Upton looks gorgeous in a mod-inspired printed coat and black bodysuit that shows off her long legs.
Lily Aldridge Talks Post-Pregnancy Workout Routine, Her Beauty Essentials & More!New mom? Yep. World-renowned modeling career? You bet. Killer post-baby bod? Triple check.
Lily Aldridge is dishing all her secrets on how she got her pre-pregnancy body back in record time. After all, she did walk the Victoria's Secret fashion show four short months after giving birth. Wowza!
"After I gave birth, I started doing Ballet Beautiful with Mary Helen Bowers," Aldridge told Cricket's Circle. "She got me ready for the VS fashion show four months post-baby."
But even before giving birth, the Sports Illustrated model had a post-baby body goal in mind.
"I was pregnant at same time as Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio and they gave me such good advice for how to stay in shape," Aldridge dished. "I did a lot of prenatal yoga and got lots of massages. I relaxed and had the most beautiful pregnancy. I loved every second of it."
Aldridge, whose daughter, Dixie Pearl, just celebrated her second birthday, didn't skimp on her beauty routine while pregnant either.
"When I was pregnant, I didn't put anything on my body that wasn't all natural," she said. "I went a bit wild. I have a whole new respect for ingredients and products. I used a lot of Mama Mio and Kora. To prevent stretch marks, I used a lot of oils—I put as many on as I could, and it worked! Loved the one by Mother's Special Blend."
Obviously, whatever she's doing is working. Have your doubts? Just look at her!
It's official: Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are marriedSorry ladies, it's official -- Adam Levine is off the market. "The Voice" coach and Maroon 5 frontman married his supermodel girlfriend Behati Prinsloo in front of 300 guests at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico on Saturday, July 19.
Us Weekly reports the nuptials were truly a star studded affair as Jonah Hill, Jason Segel and models Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel were among the attendees. Fellow "Voice" coach and friend, Blake Shelton, unfortunately couldn't make it to the ceremony due to his Chicago music tour commitments.
Prinsloo reportedly wore a beautiful Marchesa gown and several of her Victoria Secret model friends held bridesmaid positions. As previously reported, Levine's fellow Maroon 5 bandmates as well as Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks, were key parts of the ceremony.
In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple reportedly asked for charity donations from guests and will be honeymooning in South Africa.

The pair was spotted getting cozy while seeing the racy circus show “Queen of the Night” at the Diamond Horseshoe in the Paramount Hotel Thursday.
“They were making out during the show,” an eyewitness says.
The “Project Runway” host, 41, and Schnabel, 27, began dating at the beginning of the year.

Gisele Bündchen's $386 Million Fortune-Breaking Down How the Supermodel Makes $128,000 a DayLook, it's not exactly a newsflash that Gisele Bündchen makes a ton of money. She's been one of the most in-demand models for decades.
But according to Forbes, Gisele is worth a staggering $386 million, and this past year has been the most lucrative in her super storied career. It's hard for us (and most, we assume) to wrap our minds around such a gigantic number.
And what's most impressive about Gisele is not just how much she's worth, but that she keeps earning more and more (and more!) each year.
Forbes estimates that over the past twelve months Gisele took home $47 million, or $128,000 a day.
So how exactly does Gisele bring in this insane amount of bacon? It's mostly thanks to scoring major advertising campaigns. This past year she's landed gigs with H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera and Louis Vuitton.
Not to mention that the Forbes $128,000 estimate doesn't even include her most recent high-paying jobs, like campaigns with Emilio Pucci and Balenciaga. The estimate also does not include her role as the new face of Chanel No. 5, which likely comes with a pretty major payday.
And even though Gisele has denied her Forbes estimates in the past, even if her reported fortune isn't exact down to the very last penny, it's clear that her earnings are outrageously impressive.
It's also clear that the key to bringing home the huge amount of dough that Gisele does is through landing high-profile ad campaigns. But, it's also about staying the same.
In a 2009 article in The Independent designer Stefano Gabbana said of Gisele, "Gisele hasn't changed over the years: she speaks a lot, she is funny and she is not scared of saying what she thinks."
Not to mention, we'd say that the 33 year-old mother has stayed the same in the face department, too. Throughout the years she's managed to remain pretty ageless. Which of course helps in keeping her face and name so recognizable and timeless.
So, really, our main takeaway from Forbes' estimates about Gisele's massive fortune is that if you are able to remain classic and timeless, the payoff can be huge. Like, $386 million huge.
Christie Brinkley pens touching tribute to Billy Joel's late motherChristie Brinkley, who was married to Billy Joel from 1985 to 1994, wrote a touching tribute to her late former mother-in-law, Rosalind Nyman Joel, on Tuesday.
Rosalind, the woman who inspired the song “Rosalinda’s Eyes” from Joel’s 1978 album “52nd Street,” died on Sunday. She was 92.
“At sad times we look for ways to find the good to lift our spirits, so I have only to imagine what Rosalinda’s Eyes have seen to find cause to celebrate a life well lived!” wrote Brinkley.
“Just in this year alone she saw her son, Billy Joel receive the Kennedy Center Honor, the highest cultural honor possible, from the President of the United States no less, and Rosalind greatly appreciated the Arts! She also saw her son get a regular gig at Madison Square Garden (where he already holds a record) and where Roz is welcomed on a first name basis! And her eyes sparkled with pride and joy as the former Gilbert and Sullivan chorus girl, watched her granddaughter Alexa perform at the famed Cafe Carlyle surrounded by a large group of her friends enjoying themselves.”
“I know as a mom myself that when you see your kids happy healthy and enjoying their passions you feel content and happy. Rosalinda’s Eyes will live on not only in the song inspired by her, but in Billy, and Alexa… and Nanny Roz herself would find that worth celebrating. @alexarayjoel #cherishedgrandmother #restinpeace.”
Joel shared the news of his mother’s death via his official website. On it he praised her for supporting “various charitable endeavors.”
Rosalind is survived by her two children, Billy and daughter Judy Molinari; her sister Bertha Miller; and her two granddaughters, Alexa Ray Joel and Rebecca Molinari Gehrkin.
Chrissy Teigen licks Doritos, puts them back in the bagDespite her model figure, Chrissy Teigen loves junk food.
“I lick the cheese off Doritos and put them back in the bag,” the 28-year-old said in a New York Times interview published Wednesday. “I will eat pretty much anything as long as it’s salty. Or sweet. Or spicy.”
Unsurprisingly, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover model’s love of food isn’t just limited to the convenience store snack aisle.
She’s a big proponent of both low and upscale dining, citing the Michelin Star-rated Sense, the Cantonese restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo, among her favorites.
Teigen has never shied away from broadcasting her love of food, filling her Twitter, Instagram and personal blog, So Delushious, with pictures of the meals she’s eating on a daily basis, making her a perfect fit for her new gig as a judge on MTV’s new cooking show, “Snack Off.”
But as much as the model, who married singer John Legend last fall, likes to chow down, she admits that when she’s working, she cuts down on the junk food, mainly subsisting on “red wine and cookbooks.”
While food may be what’s on her mind most of the time, Teigen says she’s anything but a foodie.
“I’m the farthest thing from a foodie or a food snob. Those people terrify me,” she said. (Video)
Amber Valletta Reveals Her Drug and Alcohol AddictionAmber Valletta has revealed her battle with drugs and alcohol in a new video.
"I suffer from a disease called addiction," the model-turned-actress told the wellness website MindBodyGreen.com. "I've had it for as long as I can remember."
Valletta, 40, says she started looking for ways to get high since she was 8 years old because she was "uncomfortable being a human being."
"I sniffed markers, I sniffed glue, fingernail polish, anything that could give me a buzz," she says.
By the time she was 22 and her modeling career was at its peak, Valletta was abusing cocaine and alcohol.
"I had a multimillion [dollar] deal and I showed up the first day to shoot this campaign high and drunk," she admits. "I didn't care and that's just to show you addiction takes you to the worst places."
The Oklahoma native says the modeling industry contributed to her disease. "I was in a business that drugs and alcohol were widely acceptable and they were given to me."
But she takes full responsibility for her actions. "I am not a victim," she says. "I don't blame anything that happened to me that was negative."
Valletta sought help at 25 because she "didn't want to die."
"I had to be willing to lift the veil off the shame and say, 'I'm an addict, I can't do this alone, I don't want to do this alone, I don't feel comfortable, can you help me?' "
After staying sober for 15 years, the model-turned-actress – whose new show Legends premieres on TNT in August – hopes to inspire others by sharing her story.
"My hope is that someone, somewhere in this room, out of this room will hear something that will help them and perhaps get them out of the shadows and the darkness of addiction and bring them into the light."

Lindsay Ellingson Marries Sean ClaytonLindsay Ellingson is a married woman.
The model and Victoria's Secret Angel, 29, exchanged vows with medical equipment sales rep Sean Clayton in an intimate ceremony in Bluffton, South Carolina on Saturday.
"Words can't express the joy and happiness we have as we start the next chapter of our lives together with the support and love of our families and friends," the couple said in a statement to E! Online, who was first to report the news.
The newlyweds kept the affair small, inviting about 85 guests, and reportedly danced to Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" for their first dance.
Clayton popped the question in November while the pair was visiting his parents in Ohio. They dated for six years.
"My love proposed last month and I couldn't be happier!" Ellingson told PEOPLE at the time.
Charlie Hunnam & Doutzen Kroes Strip Down, Get Hot and Heavy in New Calvin Klein Ad(Photo) OK, so we'll never get to see Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey, but perhaps his new gig with Calvin Klein gives us a glimpse into what could have been—and holy moly is it hot! The Sons of Anarchy actor poses shirtless in a sexy new ad for the brand's fragrance Reveal with supermodel Doutzen Kroes. Really though, the two look so hot and heavy the image could have been outtake from Fifty Shades of Grey.
Hunnam's face is almost completely hidden as he embraces Doutzen, who seems to be wearing only a simple black slip. Fans won't even be disappointed by a lack of abs in the photo because, well, just look at that sculpted back!
Back in October the star hinted to E! News that he had scored some new jobs since dropping out of Fifty Shades. "I'm doing really good. I am just really concentrating on work. It's been a really busy time," he shared. Well, now we know one thing he was up to!
Kate Upton on Posing for Playboy: "I Never Like to Say Never"Men of the world, your dreams just may come true: Kate Upton has opened up about the possibility of posing for Playboy.
While speaking with British GQ at an event for Gillette, the brand's sexiest ambassador opened up about what she wants in a man (physically speaking, that is) and shared her thoughts on David Beckham's style in addition to dishing on the popular men's magazine which many would love to see the buxom beauty front.
So, would she ever pose for Playboy?!
"I never like to say never because there are circumstances that I could do pretty much anything if it inspires me and if I think that it's cool at the time," she shared. "But right now, at this point in my career, I'm not doing Playboy."
Although it's probably not the answer you fellas were wishing for, at least there's still a little hope for the future, right?
The 22-year-old model also shared her thoughts on what makes a well-groomed man, admitting "confidence" is key when it comes to attraction.
"I think, really, it's all about confidence - it's however a guy feels the most confident," she said. "And anytime someone walks into a room who is just exuding confidence, I think whatever they're doing is amazing."
As for whether some men take grooming a tad too far?
"I think there is a fine line between grooming when you're confident and you appreciate yourself, and grooming because you're insecure," the blond bombshell explained. "I think some guys try to please what other people think they should look like, instead of knowing how they feel the best in themselves."
Upton was also asked who she believes is the best dressed British man, and, when she couldn't come up with a response, the reporter suggested David Beckham, to which the leggy stunner replied: "But he's never dressed. He's always naked - he does campaigns in his underwear! In the States they're always like: 'Topless pictures of David Beckham'!"
And that's a problem...why?
Last but certainly not least, the Vogue cover girl was asked for her personal food preference if a man is making her a home cooked meal.
"I always feel great after green juices and I always have eggs in the morning," Justin Verlander's GF dished. "I think a little bit of everything is good in moderation. But if a guy was going to cook for me I would eat whatever he put in front of me!"
Cindy Crawford Is Helping a 2-Year-Old Boy Find a Bone Marrow DonorWhen Cindy Crawford found out about a 2-year-old boy with leukemia who needed a bone marrow transplant to save his life, she had to do something to help.
"I lost my little brother, Jeff, to leukemia when I was just 10 years old," Crawford, 48, tells PEOPLE. "Sadly, a bone marrow transplant wasn't an option for him then."
In 1974, when Crawford was 8 years old, Jeff was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He was just 2 years old. At the time, she says, the deadly disease only had a 25 percent cure rate. After two years of experimental treatments, Jeff lost his battle, right before his 4th birthday.
The death of her brother, whom she describes as "one of the most influential people in my life," was devastating, says Crawford, who for years has been an advocate for bone marrow donation.
"But today," Crawford explains, "we have the chance to save the life of little Chase Foley and countless other children. We need your help to find him a bone marrow donor."
Diagnosed at 4 Weeks Old
Doctors discovered that Foley was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was just 4 weeks old, says Katharina Harf, the co-founder of Delete Blood Cancer DKMS, the world's largest nonprofit marrow donor center, which is helping to find a match for Foley.
To give him the best chance at survival, Chase's parents, Chris and Elizabeth Foley and their children, Alexis, Austin, Peyton, and Chase moved from Syracuse, N.Y. into the Ronald McDonald House in Albany, New York, so Chase could focus on his treatment with the pediatric oncology team at Albany Medical Center.
"Chase is only 2½ years old but had undergone more medical procedures than the average adult experiences in a lifetime," says Harf. "He's never lived in a real home with his family or had a chance to just be a kid. His best hope for survival is a bone marrow transplant. But his medical team hasn't been able to find a matching marrow donor who can help him. If we can find a match for Chase, he can be saved."
Crawford has been working with Delete Blood Cancer DKMS since 2007, and she was honored at the organization's Linked Against Leukemia gala in 2008 for her advocacy efforts.
Getting tested is easy, says Harf, whose father, Peter Harf, founded DKMS in 1990 after his wife – Katharina's mother, Mechtild – was diagnosed with an acute form of blood cancer. She lost her battle in 1991 at age 46.
Test results from a cheek swab are sent to a national bone marrow registry. If the marrow is a match, donors undergo a minor outpatient surgery to extract healthy stem cells to replace the patient's unhealthy cells.
Chrissy Teigen: "I Don't Take Modeling Seriously"Chrissy Teigen may have a seriously impressive modeling career, but that's not guilting her into taking her high-profile gig too seriously.
The charismatic model dished of her chosen profession on Late Night, telling host Seth Meyers: "It's fun, but I don't take it very seriously."
"I am paid a good amount of money to not blink for 12 hours," Teigen joked.
And the refreshingly candid 28-year-old didn't stop there. She also addressed her outspoken nature on social media, even admitting that it has gotten her into trouble in the past.
"My agency definitely is not so keen on it all the time," Teigen dished on the show. "Well, just being a model you're not supposed to speak ever, really."
Another modeling taboo the Sports Illustrated cover girl is breaking? Eating. She's got an Instagram filled with snapshots of drool-worthy homemade meals, and now she's set to judge the new cooking competition show Snack-Off on MTV.
"Basically [it's] Top Chef but for a little dirtier cuisine—hot pockets, hot dogs, oatmeal pies."
Tyra Banks Predicts Radically Different "Beauty" Standards in the Future-Get the Details!Being beautiful isn't just about perfecting that smize, y'all!
There's a lot more to it, and if you ask Tyra Banks, almost everything we perceive as "beautiful" is going to change radically in the future. The 40-year-old America's Next Top Model host wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Monday about the future of our perception of beauty—and boy, it's a doozy!
"In general, I believe, traditional beauty will be less valuable—and more uniqueness will be heralded," she writes. This will be come as a result of quick, easy plastic surgery—making the "cookie-cutter" look less desirable, she reasons. "People will be vying for that cutting-edge, distinct look in the way that today celebs reach for baby names that defy convention."
Tyra also predicts the end of hair extensions ("hair-growing serum" can just be "applied to the scalp," and you'll see changes in 24 hours) and that curly will be "the popular hair texture of choice."
But futuristic models won't have pin-thin frames! (Actually, "models," per se, will be "as relevant as a horse and buggy," Tyra writes. "Robot/avatar models" with totally different features than us humans will sell products instead!) But! Tyra thinks because global warning "will threaten our crops," and make natural food sources "scarce," women with "hourglass, curvy bodies" will be the "aspirational beauty standard." Their more ample figures, she writes in her WSJ op-ed, show they "have access to bounties of fulfilling yet healthy food, which means they are affluent."
In the future, most people will have a similar shade of skin, she predicts, so while prejudices "based on physical features will be nearly eradicated," there will be "socioeconomically based" prejudices in their place. (BTW, we'll all have "at least one personal robot/assistant/companion" and we can choose all the features of our future kids.)
Tyra predicts that the ladies will thrive in future (the "balance of power between the sexes will have shifted dramatically," she writes) and that the men "will be vying for women's attention, obsessed with being attractive to females and snagging well-off ladies who can take care off them."
WSJ commenters are already having a field day with Tyra's musings on the future, but people of the Internet, remember: A sense of humor is a beautiful thing.
Gisele Bündchen bails on Cannes to be home with hubby BradySupermodel Gisele Bündchen chose family over business when she abruptly bailed on an appearance at the Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity to head back to her loved ones on the East Coast.
We hear Bündchen was expected to speak on a marketing panel at the weeklong media and advertising confab — where VIP attendees included Kanye West, Courtney Love, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jared Leto, Mariah Carey, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer — but she ditched the gig on short notice to jet back to the US and her hubby, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and their sons.
The supermodel, who also has her own shoe line, was scheduled to appear Wednesday at “A Conversation With Gisele Bündchen,” hosted by Gordon Bowen, co-founder of ad agency McGarryBowen, and her image appeared on the main page of an app for the conference.
But the Brazilian stunner backed out at the last minute, and actor Rob Lowe stepped in to speak instead. Ogilvy’s Philip Ellis noted that Lowe was a “welcome last-minute addition to the schedule after the supermodel pulled out.”
Buzz was that Gisele had been on a two-week photo shoot for a fashion brand before the conference and Brady wanted her to come home to their family.
But Bundchen’s rep told us she was never confirmed to appear in Cannes, even though her name and photo were included in marketing materials and popped up in news stories leading up to the gathering, which ended Friday.
“Gisele is working in New York. I’m thinking that they probably printed materials prior to getting a go-ahead from us and never took anything down,” her rep said. “I’ve never, never confirmed this opportunity.”
On Friday, Bundchen and Brady were photographed leaving a SoulCycle Studio in Boston together after a sweaty workout. Asked about that sighting 200-plus miles from New York City, the rep told us: “Yes, Gisele is working everyday in New York [and] commutes to Boston.”
Petra Nemcova offers up a spanking for $100,000Supermodel Petra Nemcova spontaneously found a way to sweeten the pot for bidders during a charity auction Thursday night at the Happy Hearts Fund gala.
Guests at Cipriani 42nd Street were playfully given school supplies, since the fund helps to rebuild schools hit by natural disasters.
When Nemcova auctioned off a trip to Ibiza on a private jet (complete with a seven-night stay on a yacht) for $85,000, she said she’d throw in a kiss, but then brandished a red ruler and told the crowd she’d spank the lucky winner if they ponied up $100,000, our spies report.
Alas, guests were perhaps too shy in front of a crowd that included honorees Bill Clinton and Haitian president Michel Martelly. U2’s Bono and The Edge appeared via video to give props to Clinton, and Martelly shocked guests by performing Elvis Presley’s “Let It Be Me” with Wyclef Jean.
Members of the Black Eyed Peas and Sheryl Crow also sang for guests including Donna Karan, Karlie Kloss and Michèle Gerber Klein and Elaine Sargent.

“My agent told me to burn my clothes the first time I walked into the agency,” she revealed during a Wilhelmina Models panel at the National Arts Club. “I had zero style. When I left the agency, I threw them out right away outside.”
She’s now one of fashion’s most recognizable faces.
Also on the panel: models Robyn Lawley and Armando Cabral and moderator Melissa Wilhelmina Cooper.

Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss Both Deny Being Full-Time Models. What's Up With That?Whether it’s designing accessories or embracing the crop top, models tend to flock to trends as one beautiful, long-legged entity. And right now, the hottest vogue to sweep the modeling kingdom appears to be denying that you’re really a model at all. Two of the most in-demand models in the world, Miranda Kerr (No. 2 on Forbes’ Top Paid Models list in 2013) and Karlie Kloss (expected to make it this year thanks to her slew of endorsements) have both recently declared that they don’t consider modeling to be their job.
In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, Kerr claimed to see herself an an entrepreneur more than anything else, saying, “From my first photoshoot at 14, I never saw myself as a model. If someone asks me what I do, I say, ‘I have my own skincare line.’ I don’t define myself as a model.” That’s not to say that she doesn’t make money posing in fancy clothes for famous fashion photographers. “I like being able to find different aspects of myself and expressing them through a picture,” she says. “It’s fun. I might as well do it while I can. It’s not going to last forever.”
Kloss echoed the sentiment in an interview with Into the Gloss earlier this week. “I think that’s why I treat myself more as an athlete than just a model,” she said. “But I’m not a professional athlete, I’m not a professional dancer, I’m not a professional anything; I have never considered modeling an actual job title. I have yet to determine what my job actually is but, yeah, modeling is a fun and funny gig.”
Merriam-Webster defines “job” as “the work that a person does regularly in order to earn money,” so we think Kloss and Kerr may be a little confused in their analysis of their day-to-day profession, especially considering just how much money they earn for this specialized skill set. But hey, we can’t blame them for wanting to keep their options open.
Cara Delevingne Makes Her Acting Debut-Watch the Sneak Peek Now!(Video) Not since The Blue Lagoon have a model's eyebrows commanded such attention in an acting debut.
Cara Delevingne's distinctive trademark brows rivals Brooke Shield's stand-outs, but to be fair, it's more than just the 21-year-old model-turned-actress' signature look that catches the eye in her first foray into acting with the British short film, Timeless.
Designer frocks tossed aside and her typically glam look downplayed for her first leading role as a young woman whose fiancé is a soldier serving in Afghanistan, Delevingne impresses in this clip, offering glimpses of a dramatic, yet subdued performance.
The clip opens with the Brit beauty sitting at a dining table with her TV great-grandmother, played by English veteran actress Sylvia Syms, "who was also separated from her partner due to the pressures of war." This shared experience draws the two closer as they navigate the emotions associated with being left behind.
In the made-for-TV movie that will be screened later this year as part of the Playhouse Presents season on British channel Sky Arts, the worried fiancée puts down her breakfast burrito with disinterest to commiserate, "It's unimaginable out there Great Gran, you know? What's going on. What it's like. Sitting there never knowing what's coming. What's going to happen..."
Viewers in the U.K. will have to tune in on June 19. to find out. In the meantime, we welcome all to check out the sneak peek to determine if she has major Hollywood potential or if she should stick to her fabulous day job.
Cara Delevingne Designs Collection for DKNYCara Delevingne just made her acting debut this week in the British made-for-TV movie Timeless, and now she's trying her hand at designing. Proof that this girl is way, way more than just a pair of bold eyebrows.
There are so many reasons to love Cara, and the announcement that she's designing a capsule collection with DKNY is just the latest.
The 15-piece collection hits stores at the end of October, and will feature unisex pieces like beanies, tanks and tees and a leather bomber jacket. Prices will run from $70 for the beanie up to $735 for a leather jacket.
"They always encouraged my design input, my personal style and my ideas from the very beginning of our working relationship," said Cara of DKNY to WWD. "DKNY is urban and edgy but, most of all, it's individual. They truly embrace the weirdness in all of us, so you can really be yourself."
Cara has a massive Instagram following—5.5 million!—which is impressive for any celebrity, but particularly a runway model.
Fellow Burberry model and bestie Suki Waterhouse has just over 300,000 Insta followers, for comparison. So, it's not surprising that there is also a social media bent to Cara's DKNY capsule collection.
Aspiring models will have the chance to be cast by Cara herself for a DKNY photo shoot. The 21-year-old supermodel posted a message on her Instagram account, explaining:
"Guys! So, I created a sick special-edition collection with @donnakarandkny coming later this year, and I WANT YOU to be in the campaign with me! I'm CASTING for a few lucky fans to come to New York City and model my new #DKNY collection in a special photo shoot with me."

Candice Swanepoel Talks Summer Beauty & Fitness: "Squats Are Key!"When searching for supermodel-worthy fitness and beauty advice, look no further than Candice Swanepoel.
As a gal whose work uniform typically comes in the form of a string bikini, Candice knows all about looking hot—especially in summertime. Recently the Victoria's Secret Angel spilled her highly sought after fitness and beauty tips to Vogue UK.
As for the exercise Candice credits for keeping her scorching body in-shape? "Squats are the key! It's definitely squats!" And when it comes to beauty, the reigning champ of Maxim's Hot 100 list has skincare slotted as first priority. "Sun protection is really important for me," Swanepoel told Vogue UK. "My face really burns and it's not cute! My facialist gives me a really strong sunscreen, and I wear that every day, whether it's sunny or not."
The supermodel shared that she's not afraid to go makeup-free (and with a face like that, why would she be?), but said that she saves the luxury for vacation time. "When I'm on holiday, I try to take a break from make-up," Swanepoel said. "If we have a night out, or go and see a band or something, I'll do some blush and mascara—but I try to keep it really minimal."
And what bikini model beauty cheat-sheet would be complete without beach beauty tips? Not this one. Here's what the South African beauty had to say about taking care of your hair while hitting up the sand: "Because I'm in the ocean all the time, I use a lot of different oils and conditioning creams on my hair. In Brazil it's very normal to take products and your brush to the beach, people dye their hair... so I take all of my conditioning treatments to the beach when I'm there."
We don't think anyone would argue the fact that her beauty secrets are clearly working!

Niki Taylor Helps a Man Propose to His Girlfriend - Watch the Sweet Video(Video) They've never had a waitress quite like this!
Niki Taylor helped Scott Connor ask his girlfriend, Jennifer Boucher, to marry him by bringing out their dessert – along with an engagement ring – at The Prime Rib in Philadelphia, where Boucher thought she was celebrating her birthday.
"So, the reason why I want to be part of an engagement," Taylor, 39, says in a video of the proposal, "is that I get to be a part of this couple's love story for the rest of their lives."
Early in their relationship, Connor had asked Boucher who her favorite celebrity was, and she'd told him it was Taylor. So he reached out to the model and star of her own lifestyle series on the StyleHaul network – and was surprised when Taylor agreed to help.
The supermodel hid in the restaurant's kitchen until it was time to bring out the dessert, and – after arriving at the couple's table – placed the ring on a serving tray alongside the couple's chocolate mousse pie.
"We've had our share of engagements," Garth Weldon, managing partner at The Prime Rib, says in the video. "I don't think we've ever had something on this scale before, where we've had a superstar model surprise the fiancée with the ring."
After her initial shock and surprise, Boucher said yes.
"I was very surprised," she admits in the clip. "I was very shocked. I was overstimulated by both the proposal and meeting the celebrity I always wanted to meet."

Heidi Klum and Seal reunite to take the family to DisneylandElin Nordegren and Tiger Woods aren’t the only celebrities willing to put aside their differences for their children. Heidi Klum and Seal are, too.
The former couple was spotted enjoying a fun-filled family vacation with their four children at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., on Wednesday.
Although they’ve been divorced since 2012, the “Project Runway” host, 40, and “Kiss From a Rose” singer, 51, didn’t let that stop them from having a blast with their kids, Leni, 10, Henry, 8, Johan, 7, and Lou, 4.
The family could be seen taking in the sights at the park and riding the tea cups, merry-go-rounds and roller coasters.
The model and singer were married in 2005 and had three children together. Klum’s eldest daughter, Leni, is from a previous relationship.
While the supermodel and singer looked to be all smiles, there’s little chance of them getting back together. Both have dated a number of other people since their split.
In January, Klum split with bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten. The two had been together since 2012.
Klum has most recently been linked with Vito Schnabel, whom she could be seen very publicly kissing at the amfAR gala in Cannes last week.
Gisele Bündchen Is the New Face of Chanel No. 5What do Brad Pitt and Gisele Bündchen have in common? Besides their bronzed, tawny beauty, super-hot spouses and glamorous jet-setting careers? They will both have fronted ad campaigns for Chanel No. 5. The supermodel is taking over for the actor as the face of the famous fragrance, according to reports.
Bündchen has been a face of Chanel beauty for more than a year now, most recently appearing in ads for the line’s Les Beiges cosmetics. And now, WWD reports, the model has filmed an ad for the scent in Sagaponack, N.Y. with A-list director Baz Luhrmann (who also directed Nicole Kidman’s 2005 spot for Chanel No. 5). According to Chanel, Bündchen was tapped for her “natural beauty and modern femininity,” WWD says.
The ad won’t arrive until later this year but we’re sincerely hoping it’s in the vein of Pitt’s black-and-white, deeply philosophical ad from last year. Nothing would be better than watching Bündchen ponder the meaning of life while being directed by the master of whimsy, Baz Luhrmann.
