Barbie Ferreira on Euphoria, Depicting Real Teens, and the Limits of 'Body Positivity'

Barbie Ferreira on Euphoria, Depicting Real Teens, and the Limits of 'Body Positivity'

Much of my knowledge about Barbie Ferreira dates back to 2014, when she first reached Internet Cool Girl status. Before American Apparel’s official death knell , she represented the brand and garnered attention as one of its few thicker models. Before photographer Petra Collins went on to direct adverts for Gucci and Adidas, and music videos for Cardi B and Selena Gomez, Collins created dreamy...

This Snapchat Series About a Model Scout Is As Transfixing As It Is Mind-Numbing

This Snapchat Series About a Model Scout Is As Transfixing As It Is Mind-Numbing

Last week, a person named Vivian started blowing up my phone with complaints. She tends to communicate by either ranting or falling to pieces. She does so over co-workers who cramp her style, over her ex being spotted in public with a new woman, over a morning boxing class, over the lack of beautiful people in the world (for her to sign to the modeling agency she works for). Her eyebrows are...

An Interview With the Mother of a 5-Year-Old Fashion Model

Have you ever seen an ad for children’s clothes and wondered, “How did they find these kids?” Adults have Tyra Banks to discover them (...sort of), but who’s going around telling the children in this country that they’re still in the running towards becoming America’s next top child model? Earlier this month I talked with the mother of a five-year-old model in an attempt to figure that out....

Plus Size Supermodel Tess Holliday Sorry for Saying 'Black Men Love Me'

Plus Size Supermodel Tess Holliday Sorry for Saying 'Black Men Love Me'

Tess Holliday, who recently covered People magazine, is a plus-size model on the rise. That attention has led to interviews, one of which got her into some trouble: she told The Guardian last week, “I do admit that black men love me. I always forget that, and then I come to a black neighbourhood and I remember.” People did not like it.

That quote sits in this paragraph in the profile:

Though Elle writes in their copy that Hadid—sister to Gigi and daughter of Yolanda Foster—“opens up about fame, family, and her red-hot modeling career,” it’s the tiniest of openings. Excerpts:

The model in question, Emily Bador, who’s white, pointed the error out in an Instagram post, in which she apologized for the shoot and said she had no idea the photo—which she believes was taken three or four years ago—was going to be featured on Blackhair.

Why Is Kendall Jenner on the Cover of GQ: An Exploration

Why Is Kendall Jenner on the Cover of <i>GQ</i>: An Exploration

A model speaks.

1. She has the ability to recognize architectural details.

“There’s an arch,” Kendall says helpfully, pointing up ahead at the Arc de Triomphe.

2. She wears hats.

Kendall puts the hat on and studies herself in Kris’s mirror.

3. She once brushed past Michael Jackson (RIP).

As a kid, she’d visit the Neverland Ranch. “I remember going, actually, and as I was leaving, Michael...

At the Business of Fashion, writer Imran Amed was compelled (reluctantly, no doubt) to Kate Moss’s private vacation villa “on the picturesque Greek island of Hydra in the Saronic Gulf” to discuss Kate Moss Agency, the business she has started to manage models who are interested in expanding their careers to the multi-hyphenate. “You know that film ‘Gia’?

Bella Hadid Gets Her First <i>Vogue</i> Cover

It’s not one of the top-tier iterations of the brand, but it’s still Vogue nonetheless: the less famous half of the maybe-they’re-supermodels, maybe-they’re-not sister pair, Bella Hadid, is on the cover of Vogue Turkey.

I can’t read any of what they’ve posted online because it’s in Turkish, but the article in question is of course titled “Ciao Bella!” and the spread has a very old Hollywood...
