E! News has the first pic of Tyra at her new job, and she looks right at home among judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowellin an incredible pantsuit, of course.

Jessie Andrews is hard to define. She got her start in adult film, but she’s now been featured in fashion mags like Dazed, i-D, and Paper, appeared in a slew of American Apparel ads. In addition to killing it as a model, Andrews also shoots photos, mixes tunes, and runs her own jewelry line, Bagatiba (the Kardashians are fans).

Based in Paris, Matilde Simone has done a variety of modelling work, from a detail-oriented shoot with Wallpaper magazine to more conventional commercial and editorial shoots. Simone utilizes a blog page on her modelling portfolio to share updates on her work.
Last summer Malia Obama made headlines for her heavy partying. She was in a few scandals for being photographed around bongs at various parties (although she was never seen using any of them) and had allegedly smoked marijuana at a music festival in Chicago last year after a witness recorded footage of the brief incident. After a few months of the scandals, news about Malia went radio silent. It was later revealed that she went on a 3-month tour of Bolivia and Peru with a large group from September through November 2016.
Malia went on an excursion through a Colorado-based group called Where There Be Dragons. She spent 83 days in the Andes mountains and the jungles of South America. The objective of the group was to “examine current political trends, social movements and environmental conservation efforts” in Bolivia and Peru. A tour guide in the group said Malia was proactive in helping out during the tour, including cooking and washing dishes.
On Thursday, it was announced the Tyra Banks was returning to “America’s Next Top Model” — a show she created — after a one season hiatus.
Over the show’s 23 cycles (seasons), there have been numerous judging panel and format changes, including a short-lived fan voting system, and the introduction of male models. But the one constant has been Banks; even last season when Rita Ora was host, Banks served as executive producer and appeared in the premiere and finale. With Banks returning as host and main judge, here are some suggestions to make Cycle 24 the best one yet (and win back some of the waning ratings).
10. Keep Ashley Graham
Graham, who was a judge in Cycle 23, is an actual working model and fits the “body positivity” messaging Banks has promoted throughout the series. She’s popular and opinionated; we’re not sure Banks would share the spotlight.
9. Bring back Nigel Barker
The model turned photographer would bring back his behind-the-lens expertise to the panel (he sat on the panel for 17 seasons — longer than any other judge). He’s also very opinionated and would challenge Banks.
Earlier this year, a friend of mine who works in the fashion industry told me that I had a commercial look, and asked me to model a turtleneck for a segment on a local NYC fashion news network. A few months later I was invited back to model, but this time it was for a major national morning show. I was thrilled. I never thought that someone like me-with dark skin and thick thighs-could ever “model.” I counted down the days.
I arrived on set as instructed: makeup free and with my hair straight-not curly. The makeup artist on set shot me a look of annoyance. She had no color in her makeup set to match me and used foundation way lighter than my complexion, which made my skin look ashy. She swiped a bright pink lipstick on my full lips, to make me “pop,” she said. I didn’t feel like I was poppin’ at all. I felt like I was being made up to look like a clown.
One of the best days of the year, especially for you Irish out there…and for the rest of you, a chance to show it off in green! Here’s a look at some of the more fashionable looks, wearing green. We hope you enjoy the gallery.
Happy St. Patricks Day everyone! Enjoy the gallery, below this picture!

New Zealand lingerie brand Lonely debuted a new ad campaign featuring 57-year-old model Mercy Brewer on March 10, stuff.co.nz reports.
Brewer told Stuff.co.nz she believes the campaign is important because beauty and fashion standards still very much need to be challenged: “Perceptions of beauty have and always will change, therefore I think we can conclude its standard is not set in stone, and new beauty is always waiting to be discovered,” she said. “I believe we are in a moment in time where older women’s beauty has been a startling revelation. If we don’t recognize it, we, every one of us, deny ourselves a future to look forward to.”
Kendall Jenner has made it clear that she’s a feminist. She even brought the movement to the forefront in the modeling industry. Feminism and modeling don’t usually go hand in hand. Models aren’t usually outspoken about their beliefs and social ideals. Kendall, however, has become a feminist darling in her own right by standing up for what she believes in. Here are some ways that the young reality star has mixed feminism with her modeling career.
Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and over 60 models and celebrities appeared in a special video for International Women’s Day. Both women and men are heard repeating the phrases, “I am a woman,” “Please respect yourself, respect women,” and “Because women’s rights are human rights.”
