Happy #FathersDay to the most inspiring man I know! I love you Daddy! xox
Polish model Magdalena Frackowiak attended the opening of a new Louis Vuitton store in Warsaw. Wearing a black and red sleeveless mini-dress which she teamed with red bow heels and a high ponytail, Magdalena showed off her natural beauty with simple, fresh makeup and she completed her ensemble with a black clutch bag. The model looked gorgeous in her stunning colour-coordinated outfit as she celebrated the new designer store opening.
Finnish model Suvi Koponen was spotted on the street following a show at Paris Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2013 collections. The model showed off a unique yet relaxed off-duty ensemble. She paired a black oversized Harley Davidson sweater with baggy masculine black trousers. She completed the look with oxblood loafers and a large black leather tote bag which she used to carry along a grey sweater. With tidy hair and natural makeup, Suvi showed off her gorgeous model complexion as she exited yet another show.
Though she’s only 20, Karlie Kloss has already cemented her status as one of theindustry’s top models with that fierce runway stomp and legs that never quit.
Now, she’s putting her pegs to good use, collaborating with denim brand Frame on two styles of jeans meant for long-legged ladies like herself.
“It’s a really exciting collaboration for me, because it came out of necessity,” Kloss told us at a preview of the line yesterday at Soho House. “I’ve been insecure my whole life about my height because I couldn’t find clothes to fit my body.”
Frame Denim was founded last year by Swedes Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson (who are also behind The Saturday Group and Industrie Magazine). Without any press, they quickly garnered celebrity fans like Miranda Kerr and Amanda Seyfried–and now, Kloss–with perfectly-fit jeans that don’t sag. Their secret?
“We really have invested in the fabric, which a lot of people forget,” Grede explains. “Everyone talks about fit, but half of the fit is using fantastic fabric.”
The collaboration with Kloss came organically: Torstensson was dining with Kloss one night and when she complained about not being able to find jeans, they decided to collaborate on a long-legged pair. The brand, which only just launched in November, didn’t even wait for market testing before teaming up with the model.
Kloss, no stranger to a good collab, is excited to launch her jeans. “I’m really lucky to have such talented friends that help me with all of my needs–jeans and cookies!–but all the things I’m a part of are things I’m genuinely passionate about and with people I really enjoy working with.”
And since Frame is dedicated to perfect fit, they took a different approach to creating the lengthy jeans. Rather than simply extend their normal block (the form used to fit the jeans) as most denim companies do, Frame made an entirely new block with a 40 inch inseam–something no denim company has done before.
“I have already gotten so many text messages from my [model] friends, like, ‘Karlie, my jeans better be in the mail!’” Kloss joked.
But Kloss hopes these jeans won’t just end up on models.
“We’re on a mission to help every girl find the perfect pair of jeans–for all the cold ankles, we will cover them!” Kloss said smiling.
“We think that cold ankles are the source of everything that’s wrong with the world,” Grede added. “If we can stop that, we can create world peace.”
Frame’s Forever Karlie jeans come in a skinny fit and a flare, and will be available through Net-a-Porter and Barneys New York starting June 1.
Slowly returning back to work on a select few projects following the arrival of her daughter Mia one year ago, Russian model Sasha Pivovarova shared photos of her latest shoot, which appears to be an editorial for Vogue US, captured by photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Posting pictures to her Instagram account as the day progressed, Sasha took a snap as she headed to the shoot, showing the model in a black hat, no makeup and a dark outfit. She then took another photo as her makeup/hair was being prepared and lastly a photo with legendary photographer Demarchelier himself
Joining some of Hollywood’s best known faces on the red carpet, models Tanya Dziahileva and Georgia May Jagger showed off their glamorous ensembles at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Russian model Tanya looked stunning in a sleeveless white floor-length dress which featured all-over embellishment. She completed the look with a white clutch, red lips and curled hair. Georgia went for a similarly timeless ensemble, pairing a plunging red haltherneck sequin detail dress with classic red lipstick, loose wavy hair and a pair of diamond earrings.
Liu Wen’s preparation for the Met Gala
Lara Stone, a Met Ball regular, apparently got a better offer this year: reports indicate that she gave birth to a baby boy over the weekend.
It was announced that the Dutch supermodel, who is married to comedian and Britain’s Got Talent star David Walliams, was expecting the couple’s first child in November.
Although no official statement about the birth has been made, photographer Mert Alas appeared to confirm the news via Twitter before deleting his tweet.
Wrote model Terese Baca: ‘Congratulations to Lara Stone and David Walliams, who had a baby boy yesterday.’
Congratulations to the happy family - which also includes Border Terrier Bert
