Erin O'Connor only became a successful model after cutting off all her hair.
The 32-year-old beauty says she wasn't getting very many jobs when she first started out in the industry because she looked so similar to the other girls, so took advice and chopped off her long locks.
"When I first began modeling I was very conventional looking - I had hair down to my waist. I went on a photo shoot and a make-up artist told me 'You need to cut off your hair - it's doing you no favors. If you do that we'll see you.' A new identity was born for me - quite tough, quite unapologetic but definitely there."
Erin recently revealed she has no plans to retire from the catwalk, despite being one of the more older models. "I hate that idea of retirement or 'You're past your sell-by-date.' That is very odd, because, for me, it is about moving, showcasing and being an outrageous poser. You'd think after 15 years I would be bored, but I'm not. The catwalk is like liberation, because there is a bit of performance involved, a bit of skill thrown in, so it doesn't matter what age you are."
Amber Le Bon wants to shave her head.
The 21-year-old model admits she is desperate to lose her long brunette locks in favour of a buzz cut - which has previously been sported by Agyness Deyn, Britney Spears and Natalie Portman - but is unable to do so because she is currently under contract: “I so want to shave my head. Unfortunately I can’t at the moment because of all my modeling contracts - I’m not allowed to change anything about my appearance, but I am determined to do it by the time I am 27.”
Amber’s eccentric hairstyle wishes don’t end there, and the model, who is the daughter of Simon and Yasmin Le Bon, admits she is also tempted to dye it a “peach melba” color.
“I’d love to dye it pink - well, a peach melba color - and cut it shorter, but again, I can’t do that, contractually, which is frustrating.”
Amber’s mother recently admitted she is thrilled her daughter is following her into modeling, and believes she will go far because she is so “humble.”
—Reality star-turned-fashion designer Nicole Richie is having difficulty with some of the stores her line is carried in. Majestic Mills, the company who owns her line Winter Kate, is going after Kitson for $240,000 worth of product given and not yet paid for.
—Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman gave birth to her first daughter, India Pearl, on Sunday night. This is Chapman’s first child with Hollywood producer husband Harvey Weinstein.
—Steven Meisel shot Miranda Kerr and her puppy for Vogue Italia. Does the puppy’s cuteness trump the cover’s 3-D-ness?
—For years, Anne Hathaway has proudly flashed her flowing, long brunette hair. Now the actress has chopped it off for a film role. What do you think of her new ‘do?
—Corrine Day, the fashion photographer noted for propelling Kate Moss’ career with their FACE editorial in 1990, passed away on Friday after a battle with brain cancer.
Known usually for her dark hair and major brooding on the red carpet and in editorials, Twilight star Kristen Stewart seems to have taken a lighter, brighter outlook on her celebrity status. In addition to the much-loved frocks she’s showcased on her Eclipse press tour, the 20-year-old showed up to a taping of The Late Show With David Letterman with shorter, red hair.
Pulled up in a sexy, messy hairstyle, do you like Kristen’s new look, or is she better off as a brunette?

Despite a poor opening weekend at the box office, the Sex and the City women were still hard at work on their international promotions.
In Japan, Kim Cattrall showed off her latest haircut, a blunt bob with thin, brow-skimming bangs (check out another picture after the jump). Her recent hair styles seemed to show off Cattrall’s classic beauty, but this new, fresh cut does wonders for her sex appeal—it’s such a Samantha thing to do!
What do you think of the Sex and the City 2 starlet’s new look?

- While her Wal-Mart lines aren’t faring well in sales, Miley Cyrus isn’t looking too worried these days, as she flashes her leopard print bra for the public while picking up some grub. While the matching prints are a bit tacky, it’s nice to see that she’s actually wearing a bra.
- Janet Jackson was spotted in London yesterday, having chopped off her locks. While I was never a fan of the Amber Rose trend, I can’t say that I’m hating Jackson’s look!
- I love Michelle Williams and I love Chanel, but when the pair were together for the after party of her film Blue Valentine‘s premiere, I fell out of love for what looked like Grandma’s satin bed sheet vengeance. Her new short hair style is killer, but not with the plain fabric wrap.

- Kate Moss have some fairly interesting ideas, but I do have to give it to her for innovation. The Topshop designer attended the unveiling of her latest collection in one of her own pieces, but she wore it backwards! She has this uncanny ability to wear anything so well that I doubt that anyone would’ve known had it not been in her line.
The first look at Lady Gaga‘s latest music video for “Alejandro” is out, and initial reactions aren’t too flattering. Whether it be a comparison to animated folks like Ronald McDonald or The Simpsons character Mr. Burns (when he played a vampire of course), our favorite fashionista isn’t pleasing everyone. Personally, I’m glad she cut back on the extravagant hair pieces—it’s nice to see a little more natural Gaga, on top of just doing something different than her usual fare.
