Kendall Jenner & Jourdan Dunn In Balmain For H&M – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

2015 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals

Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner posed on either side of Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

The model duo were displaying the Balmain for H&M collection that launches on November 5, 2015, which has been kept under wraps until now.

Looking every bit like rock goddesses, Olivier’s favoured ‘It’ girls took the ensembles for a fierce spin accessorized by, what else, black thigh boots.

While Jourdan’s ensemble was high on sexy, gold-accented appeal, I didn’t love the navy and red mixed with the black boots. Kendall’s pearl-embellished, over-sized jacket struck a more seamlessly sophisticated, sultry note.

That said, I have no doubt this debut has even further put Balmain fans on pins and needles awaiting the fifth of November.

Maybelline New York’s 100 Year Anniversary

Maybelline New York's 100 Year Anniversary

Maybelline New York celebrated its 100th anniversary on Thursday (May 14) at the IAC Building in New York City.

Gigi Hadid: The model is having quite a moment in culture right now and seems to be poised to be the next big thing in the modeling world. As such, she chose a very sophisticated look with this striped Balmain skirt and long coat combo. By belting the coat and eliminating the bright belt seen on the runway, Gigi looks the very essence of ‘major model’–very few other people could pull off cinching that much fabric at the waist and still looking chic and svelte. A high-drama cat eye and sleek updo were perfectly paired.

Jourdan Dunn: Opting for a more summery, carefree approach to fashion, Jourdan’s white cut-out Self-Portrait dress is fun and perky, and does a masterful job of showing us all exactly why Jourdan has the job she does (That gorgeous skin! Those legs!). I love that she went monochrome with the white pumps, and her barely there makeup and wavy bob are delightful.

Get The Look: Jourdan Dunn’s Met Gala Cornrows

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Jourdan Dunn for the ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 4) in New York City.

“I was inspired by the cut outs and crochet lacing on Jourdan’s Burberry dress. It inspired me to mimic the pattern by designing cornrows going on a diagonal and while also embracing Jourdan’s natural hair texture with a great heat free hairstyle. I finished off the look by putting it in a modern ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lacy prepped Jourdan’s hair with Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash to help lock in moisture into her hair before adding the braids.

After blow drying her hair with a Harry Josh Pro Blowdryer, Lacy braided Jourdan’s hair using a little Oribe Rock Hard Gel to help with frizz.

Once Lacy was done braiding she finished off with a little Shine Serum with Argan Oil by Pantene.

Models @ The 2015 Met Gala

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

The models also had their moment at the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), some strutting to the beat of the theme better than others.

Karen Elson: One of the most extravagantly attired models, Karen truly embraced the ‘costume’ in the Costume Institute Benefit Gala in her Dolce & Gabbana ballgown spectacle featuring an ornately embellished and gilded bodice with matching cuffs, and an explosion of red tulle. Her elaborate gold headpiece also gave Sarah Jessica Parker’s own topper a bit of crown competition. This was the Chinese princess moment of the night.

2015 Coachella Music Festival Style Roundup

Coachella 1

When it comes to the Coachella Music Festival, boho style reigns supreme—right down to the ubiquitous flower crowns. This past weekend brought out a full range of Coachella cool-kids who marched to the beat of their own hippie drum in Indio, California.

Kendall Jenner: Infusing her Day 1 Coachella style with decidedly western appeal, the model paired her Derek Lam 10 Crosby Spring 2015 suede vest with a striped bikini top, ripped jorts, and Saint Laurent snakeskin booties. A tribal collar necklace and stacks of bangles took the look to the next level with a typical fringe hobo bag rounding it out.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Channeling her inner cowgirl during the fest and at the Forever 21 BBQ, the Brazilian supermodel naturally wore a skin-is-in look anchored by her Forever 21 suede fringe halter top and teeny cutoff denim shorts. I loved the addition of her turquoise jewelry, tall cowboy boots, and wide-brimmed cowboy hat for plenty of kitschy fun.

Gigi Hadid: Rocking another look with plenty of fringe benefits, Gigi was spotted on Day 2, where she added chains and charm to her ensemble consisting of an ASOS fringe suede collar, black cutoffs, a Guess body chain, and H&M ankle boots. With her long blonde windswept waves, she managed to put an adorable spin on Coachella dressing.
