Most of us have that painful period during our teen years that we spend the rest of our life trying to forget. It’s forever known as “the awkward phase”, and photos from the era are purged from family albums in a manner that would do Stalin proud. Well, it seems that Heidi Klum never had that awkward phase. This would explain why she’s a world famous supermodel and we are not.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel tweeted a photo over the weekend showing herself as a fresh faced (and GORGEOUS) 19-year old on one of her early modeling dates. “Wow! Check out this picture from 1992,” she wrote. “One of my very first photo shoots. This is my original hair color!” Though still a teen, Klum still stares down the lens like a pro. Must be the genes. Contrary to what Maybelline wants you to think, she’s definitely born with it. And so are many other super models! Check out the gallery below for some early pix of Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Upton, and tons more lovely ladies who have literally never taken a bad photo in their entire lives. Bask in their photogenic-ness!
Last night, Alicia Keys continued her work to solve the AIDS crisis, hosting the 8th Annual Keep a Child Alive Black Ball at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. While helping to fund research, treatment and care for those affected by AIDS, the guest were treated to performances by the likes of Keys, Usher, Mary J. Blige, will.i.am and more. The evening also honored the late Beatle and philanthropist George Harrison. Our invite was surely lost in the mail, but we’re content to gaze upon the stars’ best red-carpet fashions. Check out the stunning (not all-black) looks worn by Tyra Banks, Chanel Iman, Kerry Washington and more in the gallery below.
What’s going down, guys? Kanye West and Chanel Iman were spotted making their grand entre together at the Givenchy after party post the brand’s Spring-Summer 2012 Ready To Wear Show. The two strolled into L’ARC nightclub to party the night away. And from the looks of the picture above they looked quite comfortable in each other’s company. That’s one seriously possessive arm, Kanye! Ã‚Â So is this the start of something new? Or shall we just called it strategic partnering? What say you?
The AmFar Inspiration Gallery took place last night at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the red carpet was a mixed bag. Courtney Love showed up, obviously, looking like a train wreck. How does she end up everywhere? Designers Michael Kors (who won the amfAR Award of Courage) and Kenneth Cole posed with a stunning Heidi Klum. James Franco suited up to receive his amfAR Award of Inspiration, while a teeny-waisted Jennifer Hudson performed. Ke$ha showed up looking drunk as usual and wearing an Abed Mahfouz gown that looked not exactly right on her. Add a clutch of models like Alek Wek and Chanel Iman and a totally incredible Rufus Wainwright, and voila! — successful event, check. To check out the rest of the arrivals action, take a look at our gallery below.
