Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: News

Bee Shaffer at this year's Met Gala

"I'm 5ft 5in and I have huge boobs, like I'm not going to wear the same thing as Karlie Kloss... I've never been fashion-forward, I'm not that interested in fashion. I kind of wear the same thing all the time or, I know it's cliched to say, but jeans and T-shirts."

- Bee Shaffer, the daughter of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explains why she never followed in her mom's footsteps (despite looking fabulous at this year's Met Gala - photo featured above).

Taylor Swift Won’t Ever Pose Naked

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities

Taylor Swift on the cover of 'Glamour'Taylor Swift will never pose naked for a photo shoot.

The "22" singer has no intention of stripping off for a magazine or in her videos like many of her pop rivals, such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, because she doesn't think it's necessary for her to "push the envelope" by revealing her body.

"I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have. For me 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off," she told Glamour.

The 23-year-old musician also revealed she likes to have the upper hand when it comes to dating and will often "freeze-out" guys from her life who she believes are playing with her emotions: "[What's freeze-out?] You don't respond to any of his texts or calls until he does something desperate [like] shows up. Or he calls and leaves a voicemail. Something that makes it very clear to you that he's interested."

Claudia Schiffer Was Never a Party Girl

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models

Claudia SchifferClaudia Schiffer didn't party during the 90s when she found fame.

The 43-year-old model insists she was "innocent" and didn't really embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle like many other models did, and instead she chose to go home after fashion shows. "I didn't really go to the parties - I'd go home after the shows. A lot of bad things can happen at fashion parties, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. I was so innocent. I wasn't aware that people were taking drugs around me and I was never offered anything. And I didn't like the taste of cigarettes or alcohol," she told the UK's Marie Claire.

Although she's doesn't regularly talk to many models from her era, catwalk stars such as Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Nadja Auermann, when they do reconnect they can just pick their relationship up from where they left it.

Claudia - who is married to director Matthew Vaughn, with whom she has three children, son Caspar, 10, daughter Clementine, nine, and daughter Cosima, three - added, "Very occasionally. We're still in contact via e-mail. I might be in LA and e-mail Cindy or see Eva in London. It's very sporadic, but when I see them I can still talk to them and pick up where we left off. That's the kind of bond that I don't think will ever break. Even though there was a large amount of competition, there was also a camaraderie and we knew that we were part of that club that was very special."

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News

Daria WerbowyWith the horrid working conditions in the modeling world that still go unregulated, it's no wonder that models like Daria Werbowy decided to go on a hiatus. After taking time off to herself, the Canadian-bred beauty is returning to the industry.

"I took a risk a couple of years ago where I decided to do the minimal amount that I could get away with, because I physically and mentally couldn’t handle it anymore," she told this month's Harper's Bazaar, of which she is on the cover. "It's like, you have everything you want, what you dreamt of is coming true, you can’t buy anything else to make you happy, so then you think, Well, what else is there? And you have to leave."

The 30-year-old, who has been modeling since the age of 14, traveled the world on her time off and finally settled in Cork, Ireland, where she currently lives with her boyfriend. While she was coy when asked about him, Werbowy did admit, "Never in a million years did I think I’d be living there, but I never thought I'd be a successful model either. I never thought I'd fall in love with who I’m in love with."

Naomi Campbell Breaks Down About Anger Management

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models, News

Naomi CampbellNaomi Campbell broke down in tears while talking about her anger management issues.

The supermodel got emotional while filming her appearance on UK TV's The Jonathan Ross Show when she talked about how anger management classes saved her life. The 43-year-old star - who has previously been arrested for throwing mobile phones at her staff - said, "I made anger management serious. Anger is an emotion. There were things I had to deal with. You have to deal with it." As she teared up, she added, "I'm crying, you made me cry!"

But host Jonathan replied, "Oh f**k off, no I didn't!"

Naomi also opened up about her previous drug use - which included being addicted to cocaine for five years - saying she realized she had to quit because it was ruining her life. "I don't want to go back. No matter what it is that you're addicted to - you can be addicted to work - all it is, is an escapism. It's escaping something, no matter what. For me, I came to my realization at 29 that I didn't like myself the way I was, and that was it. Every day is a new day - I'm no perfect human being. I'm just living and I'm just breathing," she added.

Jennifer Lopez Was Criticized for Her Curves

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty

Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez says she was slated for having curves in her early career.

The "On the Floor" singer has become renowned for her shapely bottom, but she claims she was told to make changes to her body when she first ventured into television as an actress on American 90s sitcom In Living Color. In an interview for the winter issue of Cosmopolitan Latinas magazine, she recalled, "When I first started on television, people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes. But you have to stand up and say, 'There's nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am, you're the one with the problem!' And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden other people start believing too."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models

The curvy beauty - who is now one of the most recognizable pin-ups in the world - was outraged when she was initially rejected from a major agency who assumed she would be too ''lazy'' because of her nationality.

"I'm not going to name names, but one agency told me, 'You're too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.' I was so offended! I've never been so offended! I was like, 'You know that you're in America, right?' And it wasn't 'American models - it was 'American women are lazy,' period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!" she revealed.

Kate, 21, headed straight to International Management Group - which is home to supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss - after the shocking rejection, and was signed on the spot.

Eva Herzigova: I Was Unbearable to Work With

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models

Eva HerzigovaEva Herzigova admits she was "unbearable" to work with at the height of her fame as a supermodel.

The 40-year-old Czech beauty has confessed she was "irritable" and would throw tantrums on shoots as well as display other unpleasant behavior when she was known across the world for her famous "Hello Boys" Wonderbra campaign in the mid-90s.

But Eva insists the only reason she acted like a diva was because she was overworked: "I was unbearable at one point and probably difficult to work with, but it was to do with exhaustion, trying to do too much. Going constantly from one plane to the next, from a fashion show to a photo shoot in a different time zone didn't help matters. I was irritable and had tantrums."

Eva admits to ''losing'' a sense of herself at that time, but maintains she avoided many of the pitfalls of fame and the fashion industry such as drugs. "Losing myself, yes; going off the rails and taking drugs, no. My education has given me a strong will to resist temptations like drugs. They make you feel like the person that you want to be. But it's just an illusion. I used to see people get off their faces, and I was never interested," she explained.
