Models, Extreme Sports, Art, Cocktails and Good Causes

As the girl who traded in her ballet shoes for snowboard boots and her dollhouse for a hockey stick , there is no wonder why I put myself, hobby wise, on the same level as model Daria Werbowy. Before the catwalks and magazine covers, Werbowy spent her time on the slopes, chilling at the skate park, shooting hoops, tossing the rugby ball and sailing the deep blue seas. But her knockout legs aren’t the only attribute Werbowy scored from her athletic youth, she acquired a stiff upper lip and a backbone of steal. 

Hoping to spread her love for action sports, Werbowy is a recent sponsor of Stoked, a non-profit organization that gives underprivileged youth the opportunity to learn and participate in these relatively expensive and inaccessible sports. If you’re down to help out, meet some affluent models, have a few cocktails and a good time, Werbowy is hosting a spring benefit in honor of Stoked. While designers are helping to protect the earth’s sustainability, it’s good to know other fashion icons are doing their part too!

“My agency thought that I might never do shows, because I was a bit shorter and not skinny enough,” Vodianova revealed of her early career. “But what happened was; when I gave birth to my first son I was 19, so I lost a lot of weight. I guess the stress on the body was extreme and I suddenly just turned into this stick — just the way designers love models — and after Lucas was born that’s when my career took off. I opened a lot of shows on the runway and that’s where stars are made in my industry.”

BEAUTY GOODIES: Marc Jacobs Launches Another Fragrance

Marc told WWD that while best seller Daisy “is more sweet and innocent, Lola is more sensual – the name conjures up a flirtatious, warm spirit.”

Daisy Lowe Is The Latest Mango It Girl

Mango keeps collecting “It” girls for its latest campaign.  Daisy Lowe joins Riley Keough, Marie Ange Casta, Leigh Lezark and Clara Lago. I can’t wait to see what the spreads end up looking like, I’m guessing down and dirty, possibly a night life scene. I wonder if this means Penelope’s out?

Agyness Gets Wet and Wild

Agyness Gets Wet and Wild

Last season it was all Jean Paul Gaultier. This season it’s a bit watered down. Agyness Deyn is pushing water. She’s the new gig for Voeslauer, an Austrian bottled water that enjoys booking models (they got Cindy Crawford for a past campaign.)

Personally, endorsing water is a bit of a step down from the traditional beauty and fashion spreads (yeah, I’m talking to you Jennifer “Smart Water” Aniston) and Deyn looks like a total douche in this photo. Are you gonna drink all that water? Is there really that much in the bottle? Why are you posing? Yeah, it’s pretty lamo, good job making that money though.

MOMENTS OF STYLE: Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr was absolutely stunning at the MET Ball. This dress on anyone else would look completely ridiculous but Kerr pulls it off with such sexuality that you can’t help but fall for her. I can’t wait for her next spread.

More Muse Models At The Met

More Muse Models At The Met Monday night’s feature presentation might have been the photographs in the Model as Muse exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but coming in close second were the muse models themselves. I’ve run into a few of these bread winners on the street, but I must admit, nothing would be more intimidating than being towered over by a glamorous, naturally gorgeous and fashionable beanpole.

I have few qualms here. Anja Rubik showed some major leg. Daria Werbowy braved the infamous Balmain shoulders. Erin Wasson rocked the androgynous look. Sasha Pivovarova went simple on the dress and crazy on the feathers. But Natalia Vodianova…she looked like an innocent Princess Peach. This is the Met Gala, not a Super Mario convention.

Thanks Who, What, Wear Daily!
