Saint Laurent Paris Does The Timewarp: On Wednesday, we reported that Yves Saint Laurent might be dropping the “Yves” as a means of rebranding the label under the direction of Hedi Slimane, and the very next day the storied fashion house confirmed, sending countless tweeters, bloggers and writers into a tizzy. We, on the other hand, started to think about what would happen if other design houses were to do the same.
Kate Upton’s Busy, Busy Week: The busty blonde graced the cover of GQ (which coincidentally channeled Azealia Banks in her latest music video for “Jumanji”), spoke onscreen about her love of America (and large breasts) and even taught Jimmy Fallon how to Cat Daddy. How’d she do it all? With some seriously genius self-marketing skills.
Asian Beauty Products That Might Just Save Your Skin: Okay, so maybe they won’t save your skin, but they’re certainly bizarre and intriguing enough to warrant a test-run. From charcoal shampoo to a chin contour mask to collagen-boosting marshmallows, we’re curious to see what will be first to hit the shelves of Sephora first (or, alternatively, be banned by the FDA).

We rounded up the many, many models who have transitioned from runway to silver screen and analyzed how seamlessly and successfully they made the jump.
Abercrombie Model Sues Over Forced Masturbation: Here’s one you don’t hear very often. In order to ‘relax’ before a photoshoot, a male Abercrombie and Fitch model was asked to masturbate in front of the camera by his modeling agent. His agent was then overcome with the sudden urge to disrobe and, um, compare sizes. And now the model in question is suing. Yikes.

Model Alliance Comments On Scandalous Girl Model Documentary: We finally got to see Girl Model, the tension-ridden documentary about a 13-year old’s quest to make it as a model that we told you about back in March. The movie left us with a few questions, so we reached out to members of the Model Alliance to see what they had to say and what they’re going to do about holding agencies accountable.
Sao Paolo Fashion Week’s Best Beauty Looks: SPFW may not be as prominent as the European shows, but it’s gaining steam. Of course, the clothing was beautiful, but the beauty looks were especially striking. We rounded up our favorites and already can’t wait to give them a try.
Supermodel Stand-Out Signatures: Have you ever wondered why some girls skyrocket to supermodeldom while others are resigned to a life as a seasoned strutter, never landing any major covers, campaigns or editorials? Hint: it’s all about that little extra somethin’ somethin’. To take a closer look, we detailed what specific things some of the biggest models (past and present) are known for. From Cindy’s mole to Karlie’s legs, it’s all here.
