Model Turned Actress
Fashionista Week In Review: YSL Rebrands Under Slimane, Kate Upton Takes Over the Internet and the Best of Resort, Part Two
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). Model-Turned-Actress, Everybody's Doing It: Models are good looking people, and so are actresses. Actresses appear on magazine covers, and so do models. So it makes sense that models might whet their palates and give acting a try, right? Right. 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.
