Tim Tebow is the New Face of Jockey But Won't Model In His Tighty Whities
He may not be playing in the Superbowl this Sunday but Denver Broncos' QB Tim Tebow still has plenty of opportunity to show off his, um, talents with a new gig as the face of Jockey Underwear, reports The Huffington Post.
But unlike male hussies David Beckham and Jim Palmer that came before him, devoutly Christian Tebow is keeping it pure of heart and won't be dropping his pants for the new campaign. "Some things are better when left to the imagination," Mo Moorman, public relations director for Jockey International, said. Well, sure, except for maybe when the thing being left to the imagination is, you know, the product you're trying to sell.
Right in time for Gossip Girl to (finally) end, Blake Lively has landed herself a new gig: She has just been named as the face of Gucci's new scent, Premiere, which will launch in late July in the UK, and worldwide in September, WWD is reporting.
The scent is said to be infused with "Old Hollywood charm," and will have top notes of bergamot and orange blossom, a heart of white flowers and musk, and a base cocktail of leather and wood. The bottle, which Gucci creative director Frida Giannini designed, apparently "drips with gold and heritage details and looks like a fashion accessory," and will set you back between $63 and $105, depending on the size.
Gorgeous, glamorous, and a movie star in her own right, Lively would normally be a natural choice for Gucci. "Celebrities and red-carpet glamour have always been a part of the Gucci heritage," Giannini said, adding that she chose Lively "because she is a girl of extraordinary beauty and she’s a girl who loves fashion. She has great taste in clothes."
Except that, up until recently, Lively's great taste in clothing largely paid tribute to a completely different storied fashion house: Chanel.
Jennifer Lawrence has scored her first luxury label endorsement--though we're sure it won't be her last. Lawrence has been named the new face of Miss Dior, WWD is reporting.
We actually could have seen this coming...
Andrej Pejic is one interesting dude. Or lady. Depending on how he's feeling. Here, highlights from the gorgeous (and surprisingly funny!) model-of-the-moment's interview with New York mag.
Carine Roitfeld gave him his start:
In Europe’s fashion world, where the masculine ideal is a good deal less masculine, Pejic found some work, but he didn’t become one of the industry’s coveted items—the modeling world’s version of the Birkin or the Spy Bag or the Muse—until Carine Roitfeld, then editor-in-chief of French Vogue, decided to dress him as a woman for an editorial shoot. “Carine Roitfeld was just like, ‘Put him in Fendi!’ ” Pejic explains
He's not that into labels:
“I guess professionally I’ve left my gender open to artistic interpretation,” he says...
By now, Pejic has fully embraced a look of gender-bending, rocker couture: ripped jeans and cut-up T-shirts and shorts that would seem to leave nothing to the imagination except that, in his case, they obviously do. “It’s not like, ‘Okay, today I want to look like a man, or today I want to look like a woman,’ ” he says. “I want to look like me. It just so happens that some of the things I like are feminine.”
Before making it as a model, Pejic had some humble beginnings (he's joking, we think, but still):
Among the many problems plaguing the modeling industry is the fact that models have no way to recoup lost wages if a client is unwilling or unable to pay. Fortunately, the Model Alliance and Freelancers Union are working together to change that.
According to an announcement posted on Model Alliance's site, the two organizations are working together to help pass the Freelancer Payment Protection Act, a proposed law that will help protect models and other freelancers in New York from deadbeat clients as well as protect models from wage theft by their agencies.
