Get the Supermodel look: go backstage at Esteban Cortazar Fall 2016 with hair stylist and Moroccanoil Creative Director Peter Gray at Paris Fashion Week.

“We went back to gel”, Peter explained, “It was something quintessentially supermodel that we have not seen for ages. I feel that Esteban’s collections really harken back to that era of the supermodel – they’ve got that fabulousness about them”.

“I’m using the Moroccanoil Gel on one side of the head with a side parting, we did this little rope twist, which was intended to separate the two sides of the woman. And then the side is a little softer and more textured, bushed a little bit looser so it flowed a little bit as the girls walked”.

Esteban Cortezar said that he wanted the girls to look fresh and beautiful, “With the hair we just wanted to take it away from the face, accentuate the neck, accentuate the pieces the way they were constructed. With the collection we started with this idea a jock strap – so all those elastics came from that, in the way they were in some of the clothes – these male gymnastics references came into play.”

Michael Kors Collection Introduces New Format with Resort 2017

No social media. The Daily Front Row is reporting that Designer Michael Kors has banned all social media at his upcoming Resort 2017 presentation on June 7th in New York.  The brand announced today a new format and timelines and ‘No Social Media Permitted’ policy for the upcoming show.  They’ll release just five images on the day of  appointments for online and print with the rest of the collection “open to the public” on October 2016.

A complete lookbook, for editorial requests only, will be sent to editors the following day. “We feel our clients and fans will love getting a sneak peek of the collection as opposed to inundating them with too much imagery too soon,” Kors explained today. “Ultimately, this is all about creating more excitement when the product is available.”

Gigi Hadid talks to us backstage at New York Fashion Week and tells us why she adores fashion designer Anna Sui and what her role as spokesmodel for Maybelline New York means to her.

“I grew up watching Maybelline commercials and singing the jingle in my bathroom and doing my makeup and to now be able to be in the commercials and be on the screen with the girls singing along too is amazing. I genuinely love the brand and the products and that was something really important to me. It’s very important to me when I make all my deals I genuinely want to be able to represent things that I love because I won’t be able to do it as well if I don’t love the brand, so I’m very happy to be a Maybelline girl.

My message to young girls about beauty is – this sounds so cliche but all the supermodels that I’ve met along the way – it doesn’t matter how beautiful they were, even if I looked up to them for my entire life it always ruined it if they were not nice or not genuine. My favorite girl is Candice Swanepoel who I grew up loving my entire life. Candice is the most genuine, kind person and that makes me love her even more.”

Taylor Swift Covers Vogue USA May 2016

Taylor Swift Covers Vogue USA May 2016

Taylor Swift Covers Vogue USA May 2016 issue photographed by Mert and Marcus.

While many were expecting supermodel Gigi Hadid to make her first American Vogue cover appearance on the May 2016 issue following the leak of that sultry editorial with Zayn a couple of weeks ago, the magazine surprised online readers when it revealed on Thursday that Taylor Swift is the month’s cover star.

Swift, who’s fronted the book twice before — once in February 2012 and again in March 2015 alongside her bestie Karlie Kloss — pays homage to Hedi Slimane in her Mert and Marcus-shot spread, wearing Saint Laurent on the cover, complete with the bleach-blonde mop that the designer tends to favor for the models in his shows.

Her looks inside the issue are just as fashion-forward — Vetements, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler — and a far cry from the typically cutesy things we’re used to seeing her wear. You can read the full story over at (Source: Fashionista)
