Fashion Week Through a Model’s Eyes Isn’t as Glamorous as You’d Think

Whenever I think of Fashion Week, I picture gorgeous models strutting their stuff down long runways showcasing beautifully crafted garments. I tend to forget, as I’m sure others do, that these models have to endure grueling hours of castings, fittings, hair and makeup, etc. Although the finished result is stunning, it’s hard to believe what models go through to walk the Fashion Week runway hoping to land a big campaign. Reading through the Huffington Post, I came across an interesting article about one model who almost lost a job because of her birth control. I repeat: birth control. (more…)

10 Things to Try to Look Like You’re Not Trying

Effortless – my favorite word, style and attitude. The secret to happiness and all good things in life is, to simply put it, “give no f**ks.”  I mean think about the ideal woman, a Victoria’s Secret model, and the ideal man, James Bond. Granted the Victoria’s Secret models weigh about as much as the average 12 year old and have legs that go on for months, and Bond looks phenomenal in a suit and always has a perfectly chiseled jaw line. It’s the element of not caring or trying to be cool that makes them both SO cool.

The VS model with her seemingly not styled, messy, tousled bedhead and soft smokey eyes walking around in her lingerie in front of an audience with a flirty smile as if it were any other day and not the average person’s nightmare. Then there’s Bond getting into to fist fights on top of trains, dangling from the sides of buildings and slipping out of every predicament and into the next without breaking a sweat and keeping a monotone, unamused voice. The ultimate Mr. Cool.

Regardless if you fall into the mainstream standards or follow the beat of your own drummer, as long as you carry yourself as if you’re proud and no one is watching, you can get away with anything.

Angels Around the World

December 4th marks the date of the world's most beautiful women walking the glittered runway of the Victora's Secret Fashion Show on CBS. I'll be ready to watch with piles of candy, popcorn, potato chips and every other morsel of junk food I can find as I try to figure out how these models were given the gift of a perfect genetic code.

Back to the point, it's obvious these models don't all come from the same parts of the world, and, to be honest, I've barely heard any of them speak, which is odd considering how well known they are. I came across this video on Fashionista and was instantly intrigued. Check it out below! (more…)
