Let’s kick off the weekend with a little fashion eye-candy that just so happened to be the Guggenheim International Gala Pre-Party red carpet that graced the city of New York this week with it’s oh-so-stylish attendees. Hosted by none other than fashion house Dior, the event was chock full of glorious looks from which to cull your weekend’s perfect party look — from the flipped-up hair and flipped-out skirted 50′s style of actress Camilla Belle, to the stunning red booties gracing the feet of Marion Cotillard (muse to Dior creative director Raf Simmons), to the rainbow variety of actual models in attendance (Joan Smalls, Constance Joblanski, Karlie Kloss.) They say emulation is the greatest form of flattery… we think it may be the most stylish too. Have a great weekend!read more
Not a newbie to the beauty contract scene — she is a Victoria’s Secret Angel after all — supermodel Karlie Kloss has added another notch to her career bedpost, this time as one of the faces of L’Oreal. Joining the illustrious ranks of actresses Zoe Saldana, Blake Lively and Eva Longoria, Kloss is bringing her unique brand of classic beauty meets strength to representing the iconic beauty brand.
“It’s a dream,” Karlie recently told Style.com. “I’ve had the privilege of working for the past seven years, and if I’m totally honest, toward this. On my list, I had a number of things, but, I had L’Oréal, American Vogue, and Victoria’s Secret.”
It looks like it’s time to add a few more to Kloss’ bucket list, but she may be hard pressed — her enormous list of credits include appearing in adverts for such industry giants as: Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier, Donna Karan, Chloé, Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent, she’s the face of Marc Jacobs fragrance Lola, and she’s opened and closed more runway shows than even she can list. A big congrats on your newest conquest Karlie — keep on over-achievin’!read more

When uber-model Karlie Kloss cut her hair into the super-cute bob that graced the most recent runways… it made news. After all, it’s not all that common that a model shears off her sculpt-able locks into its own definitive do. But it seems Kloss felt she had the clout to pull it off — and it was for work, after all.
The snip heard round the fashion-world was documented for Vogue U.S. in the form of a before-and-after expose shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier. You can see the photos live and in-person in the recent January issue of the mag — but naturally the picks have made their way to the web. So here they are. Let us know which you prefer? Will you be next in line for “The Karlie“?
And just what does Kloss have to say about the whole to-do? Simply put, “it definitely has an edge.” Indeed it does.
There’s something different about this year’s 2013 Pirelli Calendar. Oh sure, it’s still chock full of the worlds great beauties — but this year’s famed Pirelli is celebrating what’s beautiful on the inside too — sans nudity.
Photojournalist Steve McCurry shot this most recent calendar with the intention to “portray women who are sexy without being naked.” McCurry said, “It’s not about their bodies. Or their sexuality. These models are purposeful and idealistic people.” calling the project the “calendar of the soul.”
Women like a pregnant Adriana Lima — a Pirelli Calendar first — and slew of other superstar models (Isabeli Fontana, Liya Kebede, Karlie Kloss, and Petra Nemcova), Brazilian actress Sonia Braga, and singer Marisa Monte are all featured, and here’s the philanthropic twist. Each one of this group of women supports a charitable foundations and other humanitarian projects, like Kloss’ Perfect 10 Cookies and her promotion of FEED, and Nemcova auctioning off a trip to Brazil for the unveiling and donating the proceeds to Happy Hearts Fund.
Tomorrow’s the big day! The day we’ve all been waiting for! The Dec. 1st release of Target’s Neiman Marcus’ collaboration. The goods, created by a heavy-weight list of 24 CFDA designers — including an Alice + Olivia designed basketed bicycle, metallic Marc Jacobs makeup bags, and a bowed and black lace cocktail dress by Robert Rodriguez — will arrive magically on Target shelves tonight.
What better way to get those shopping juices flowing than the release of the Karlie Kloss-endowed commercial from the imaginary mind of Quentin Jones.

Noted beauty news outlets are exclaiming that 20-year old Karlie Kloss’ new do has toppled that 90′s copy-cat hair-do “The Rachel” that everyone but Jennifer Aniston seemed to like.
Kloss recently chopped off her luscious supermodel locks into a kicky blunt with bangs cut and announced, “It’s…it’s…‘the Karlie.’ It’s the Karlie! I want women to someday go in to the hair salon and say, ‘I want the Karlie.’” And it seems the fact that she did it without fear of losing the scads of couture and beauty contracts, and film offers that she’s enjoyed thus far, makes it clear that Kloss has the clout to make it so.
Miss Kloss recently told beauty website Into the Gloss what the act of cutting her hair symbolized to her, “I think a woman’s confidence is in her hair. It’s true! When you change your hair, everything sort of changes. It affects the way you act, the way you dress…your hair is a very very influential part of your style. And a woman with a great haircut can wear a paper bag and look amazing. …this cut, just by itself, is such a style. I love it; I feel like I’m changing… I don’t know, I’m finding who I am. I’m twenty years old, I’m entering a new phase of my life; I bought a house! I sign the papers tomorrow. There’s a lot of change happening in my life right now. It’s a new haircut for a new decade.”
Indeed… but will this cut launch a thousand emulative ships? We shall see!read more
Let’s call it vintspiration, shall we?
New York’s Americana Manhasset fall catalogue has taken a direct cue from the 1920′s-30′s vintage fashion nods currently swirling around in the 2011-2012 zeitgeist — most notably from last year’s Oscar-winning film The Artist – including some of the movie’s charming star.
Starring super-model Karlie Kloss, male model Clément Chabernaud and The Artist‘s four-legged phenom Uggie, A.M.’s fall catalogue, appropriately titled “Speechless“, is a rather direct imitation of the black-and-white silent film look, showing off the brands vintage-inspired fall collection. And that’s not all.
It seems A.M. is also set to jump onto the fashion-meets-short film bandwagon, with plans to reveal it’s own short, silent film of behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the catalogue. Both will be unveiled sometime in mid-August, but WWD offered up some exclusive and heart-stopping sneak peeks, which we’re happy to pass on to you! You can see them all via WWD here.
