Seven Iconic Naomi Campbell Runway Moments

With a career spanning three decades, Naomi Campbell has cemented herself in the cultural lexicon as one of the most iconic supermodels.
Campbell, who turns 50 today, began her career in the late Eighties, walking the runways of virtually every major fashion designer where she’s produced several memorable catwalk moments that are still talked about to this day.

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” — Nelson Mandela @viviennewestwood #1993 #fbf
A post shared by Naomi Campbell (@naomi) on Apr 24, 2020 at 5:54pm PDT

Today, Campbell still makes the occasional runway appearance, but keeps them a secret until she steps foot on the catwalk. In a 2019 YouTube video, Campbell stated: “I prefer nowadays when I do shows, I don’t tell anybody. I just appear because I don’t want the pressure. You know, anything can happen.”
Campbell views every runway and designer look differently when taking the runway.
“It’s never been about showing myself,” she said in another YouTube video. “It’s about finding a character within myself to each designer that I work for in relation to the outfit that I’m

The Reebok Club C Revenge Plus Is a Fresh Take on an Iconic ’80s Tennis Shoe

With spring and summer fast approaching, the 2020 Summer Games are on everyone’s minds. We’ve started seeing some of the newest innovations unveiled—everything from Olympics medal stand looks to track spikes to skateboarding uniforms—and now there are lifestyle drops with a heavy skew toward sport. One of our favorites thus far is Reebok’s International Sports Heritage Collection. And we’re all over the Reebok Club C Revenge Plus.


The Most Stylish Sneakers to Wear With a Suit

It’s obvious the Club C draws style cues from vintage tennis aesthetics. Hallmarks of the ’80s court design are all here: The low top dips below your ankle, the upper is made from supple leather, and a rubber outsole runs underfoot. But the Club C Revenge Plus strays from the typical all-white motif. Instead, it’s imagined in cream with hits of orange (or as Reebok likes to call it, Mars Dust) on the hang tag, logo, and vector—which, by the way, saw its prominence begin on the international stage of the ’96 Summer Games in Atlanta, Georgia.

Reebok Club C Revenge Plus

Nostalgia doesn’t have to come at the expense of comfort, though. These kicks have a plush foam tongue, molded sockliner, and cushioned midsole, making them an excellent wear-everywhere shoe. They might have stadium-worthy looks, but you can rock ’em traveling, on casual days at the office, and all weekend long. No need to wait ’till the Olympics kick off on July 24. This is an idyllic shoe to break out of your winter blues and style with your favorite jeans, joggers, or even a suit. Perhaps best of all, the premium look and feel of the shoe won’t cost you $ 100.


The Best (and Most Innovative) Razors for a Close, Safe Shave

Other offerings from the International Sports Heritage Collection include three printed track jackets and three sweatshirts in varying red, green, and blue hues. Come April, a second iteration of the collection will be unveiled. You can expect another Club C Revenge Plus shoe, a Classic Leather model, and more Olympics-inspired merchandise.

Versace Is Making Sneakers Inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s Iconic Green Dress

Nineteen years later, Jennifer Lopez’s plunging, jungle-themed dress is still iconic.
Case in point: the Versace number, which Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000, is getting the sneaker treatment in a collaboration between the fashion house and clothing brand, Concepts.
Launching Friday, the two have partnered for a limited-edition Chain Reaction platform sneaker that mimics the green, jungle-print seen on Lopez’s dress. The sneakers retail for $ 1,075.

Versace x Concepts Chain Reaction Sneaker. 
Concepts

Lopez’s dress is still celebrated as a cultural emblem of the early aughts and is credited for catapulting the singer and actress to fashion icon status. The dress was the impetus behind Google launching Google Images, with former chief executive officer, Eric Schmidt, stating that Lopez’s dress was the most popular search term that the company had ever seen.
The limited-edition sneaker is available in both men and women’s sizes and will be available on Concepts’ web site and stores in Boston and New York.

Chanel at the Oscars: 13 Iconic Karl Lagerfeld-Designed Red Carpet Looks

Karl Lagerfeld was a master of many things, from design to photography — but his red-carpet looks were especially spectacular. With the Academy Awards coming up on Sunday, WWD looks back at the late designer’s most memorable Chanel looks at the Oscars.
Historically, Lagerfeld’s take on Oscar fashion was about clean silhouettes and a neutral color palette fused with intricate, couture details such as embroidery and beading, as seen on the likes of Diane Kruger, Sarah Jessica Parker and Pharrell Williams.
Julianne Moore wore Chanel couture dresses back-to-back for her best actress win in 2015, and then again to present in 2016. Lagerfeld created a custom look in 2018 for Margot Robbie, for whom he designed a minimalist white gown with off-the-shoulder crystal embroidery, to critical acclaim.
Perhaps the most newsworthy Chanel look at the Oscars, however, came in 2001 when Jennifer Lopez wore a sweeping taupe ballgown with a transparent bodice. Only in Hollywood.
Click through the above gallery to see more of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel designs on the Oscars’ red carpet.

Julianne Moore picked up the Oscar for best actress in 2015, wearing a Chanel couture gown  covered in no fewer than 80,000 sequins.

Kurt Cobain’s Cardigan, Jimi Hendrix’s Bracelet, and More Iconic Items on the Auction Block Today

kurt cobain

How much is a sweater worn by Kurt Cobain worth? According to an auction site, the olive cardigan Cobain sported during Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged performance merits anywhere from $ 40,000 to $ 60,000. Outrageous? Maybe at first glance, but when compared with the estimates for clothing and accessories from the wardrobes of other musical icons also up for sale, Cobain’s moth-eaten knit seems almost competitively priced. Jimi Hendrix’s favorite bracelet, for example, picked out at the Portobello Road Market and partially made of plastic, is predicted to fetch between $ 25,000 and $ 35,000. Several of Michael Jackson’s jackets are also available, as are items from Elvis Presley, Madonna, Freddie Mercury, and John Lennon. For those who can’t decide what to pick up from the sale, we’ve highlighted our five favorite picks above—but hurry, you have only until 10:00 a.m. PST to place your bid.

8 Iconic Photographs Show How Forever Cool Girl Patti Smith Inspires Our Fall Style

patti smith looks

Writer, artist, and musician (to some, the High Priestess of Punk), Patti Smith gifts the literary world and a whole new generation of fans with another look into her singular mind, piquant curiosities, and otherworldly experiences in the recently released memoir, M Train. But as we’re lining up at the bookstore to buy our own copies, let’s take careful notes from Smith’s sartorial expression—always relevant, but especially pertinent this fall.

A longtime muse, un peu jolie laide, to designers from Ann Demeulemeester to Nicolas Ghesquière, who practically re-created her likeness for his Spring 2012 Balenciaga campaign, today Smith mostly adheres to a wardrobe steeped in an insouciant yet exacting androgyny. Still, her 2010 memoir, Just Kids, about her deep friendship with the late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, reveals Smith to be a true fashion student and experimenter. She writes of an early aversion to skirts and “red slashes of lipstick,” and of plastering a photograph of Edie Sedgwick from the pages of Vogue on her wall as a teenager. Later, she dressed “like an extra preparing for a shot in a French New Wave film” to the famed club Max’s Kansas City. At other times, she channeled Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face or donned all-black clothes with white Keds to a fancy dress ball, a look she called “tennis player in mourning.”

As the temperatures cool, iconic photographs of Smith awaken and inform autumnal attire goals. Denim takes shape in a perfectly fitted boyfriend cut suited for figure-drawing class, your local dive bar, or a lazy Sunday afternoon. Is there anything chicer than Smith’s trademark rock ’n’ roll black blazer—the stuff of Hedi Slimane’s dreams—paired with protest pins, a crisp men’s shirt, and antique-y cross necklace? And for outdoors, a shrunken bomber, a silk trench, or an au courant suede blazer covered Smith’s lithe figure. Above are eight iconic retro photographs inspiring us this season.

16 Iconic Film Roles That Almost Went to Someone Else

iconic movie actor roles

An old Entertainment Tonight clip featuring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams doing press for The Notebook resurfaced online today. In the interview, Gosling confessed that he actually did a screen test with Britney Spears before McAdams ultimately won the part. “I hadn’t seen her really since she was about 12,” the actor said about his former fellow Mouseketeer. “She’s really good, actually.”

While it’s nearly impossible to imagine Spears kissing Gosling during a South Carolina rainstorm, there are several instances in Hollywood history where similarly iconic roles almost went to someone else. Sarah Jessica Parker may be synonymous with Carrie Bradshaw, but the lead role of Sex and the City was actually offered to another actress before Parker. Ditto with Forrest Gump and Elle Woods. Here, a look at some of the other close casting calls in Hollywood.

The Most Iconic Jewelry in Movies

Precious jewels have provided fodder for drama practically since drama was invented, with precious stones and trinkets used as plot devices in plays written as far back as 100 B.C. As man-made substitutes such as rhinestones, moissanite and cubic zirconium started making the market for seemingly-precious stones more, well, precious, so did the real thing become more dramatic to seek out on film. Here are a few of the most sought after, revered and iconic pieces of jewelry dramatized for our viewing pleasure.

Heart of the Ocean — Titanic

James Cameron’s box office champ offered up one eye-popping set piece after the other, not the least of which was Kate Winslet’s greatest asset. Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about the legendary Heart of the Ocean necklace worn by her character, Rose. Lore has it that the diamond was originally owned by Louis XVI and cut into a heart shape after the French Revolution. Caledon Hockley (Billy Zane), the wealthy son of a Pittsburgh steel tycoon, purchased the diamond for Rose, his fiancée, who soon finds herself swooning over Leonardo DiCaprio’s starving artist, Jack Dawson.

The Pink Panther Diamond — The Pink Panther Series

The Pink Panther is a large and valuable pink diamond, first shown in the first film of the series, released in 1963, which introduced Peter Sellers’ iconic character of bumbling French police inspector Jacques Clouseau. The diamond is called the “Pink Panther,” because of the flaw at its center: when viewed closely, it is said to resemble a leaping pink panther. The phrase reappears in the title of the fourth film The Return of the Pink Panther, in which the theft of the diamond is again the center of the plot. The phrase was used for all the subsequent films in the series, even when the jewel did not figure in the plot. It ultimately appeared in six of the eleven films.

One Ring — Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Never has one piece of jewelry caused so much misery, mayhem and death as the One Ring from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The ring is deceptive: it appears on first glance to be a ring that bears invisibility upon its wearer. However, we later learn that it was crafted by Sauron the Dark Lord as part of his design to win domination over Middle-Earth. The Lord of the Rings concerns the quest to destroy the Ring to keep Sauron from fulfilling his design. This is a good example of when a simple moissanite ring would have sufficed, not to mention saved a lot of nice people headaches (and severed limbs).

Marilyn’s Diamonds — Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Marilyn Monroe’s ode to materialism, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” might be her most signature moment in a career that produced many. Bedecked in ice from the neck down, Marilyn’s seductive jig through a parade of suitors was the ultimate symbolic salute to 1950s materialism that (depending on your POV) either blessed or cursed generations of women after. That said, few women before or since made looking sparkly quite so…sparkly.

2015-07-11-1436601315-4540996-PW
Julia Roberts’ Necklace–Pretty Woman

When wealthy tycoon Richard Gere does a My Fair Lady-style makeover on streetwalker Julia Roberts in director Garry Marshall’s box office smash, his finishing touch is the stunning necklace he puts around her neck. Custom made by French jeweler Fred Joaillier, the necklace is made with 23 pear-cut rubies set in the centers of diamond encrusted hearts, set in 18k white gold. It’s understandable that Gere initially snaps the box shut on Roberts’ fingers as she reaches for it–we wouldn’t want to give it up, either!

007’s Rolex Submariner–The James Bond Series (Connery, Moore and Dalton)

The James Bond series established from the get-go that if you’re a world-class secret agent, only the best will do. From the series’ first film, Dr. No, in 1962, Bond wore a Rolex Submariner as his timepiece of choice. As the series progressed, the Rolex had many other functions, as well: laser beam cutter, saw, poison dart gun, etc. Designed as a diving watch by Rolex in 1954, it was largely used by military personnel until it was so popularized by the Bond films, that it remains Rolex’s top-selling model today.

007’s Omega Seamaster — The James Bond Series (Brosnan and Craig)

Bond traded his Rolex (some watch enthusiasts feel in a downward direction) for an Omega Seamaster, an equally venerable sport watch made by the famous Swiss watchmaker since 1948. With its distinctive blue bezel and face, Bond’s Seamaster can be worn with a short-sleeve shirt or a tuxedo with equal aplomb. Like its Rolex predecessors, Bond’s Omega has also been outfitted with a variety of gadgets that have gotten the superspy both into and out of hot water.

Cache of South African Diamonds — Diamonds Are Forever

Okay, so we’re James Bond fans. If you don’t like it, click on another link and be gone! In Sean Connery’s last “official” turn as James Bond (Never Say Never Again, made 12 years later, is viewed by many as a “bootleg” Bond flick), 007 poses as a diamond smuggler in order to smash a group of criminals, but uncovers a plot by old nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld to use the diamonds in the construction of a giant laser (a precursor to drone strikes, if you will) to be used as a terrorism tool from space. The diamonds act as a “McGuffin,” or forgotten plot device, until the final, very humorous shot of the film.

The Galaxy — Men in Black

No doubt the most complicated jewel on this list, Agents J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) spend most of this wild, joyful sci-fi romp seeking it out to save it, while a villainous Bug (Vincent D’Onofrio) wants to destroy it. Yes, it’s an actual galaxy containing planets filled with peaceful beings, but it’s also small. As in the size of a marble. As in it’s hanging on a collar around a cat’s neck. Protecting said galaxy around said cat’s neck becomes the mission of these top secret agents of the MIB, in what has to be the most important jewel in film history, or certainly the most populous.

The Bag of Diamonds — Reservoir Dogs

Another classic example of a McGuffin, Quentin Tarantino’s freshman directorial effort shocked many with its gleefully graphic violence and virtual iambic pentameter profanity, with a plot primarily revolving around a diamond heist gone horribly, horribly wrong, and the aftermath where the surviving thieves convene in a remote warehouse to ostensibly divide the loot. Of course, things get more complicated than that. Although we never actually see the diamonds in question, the bloodbath that ensues during the film’s duration gives little doubt as to their value, or to the talent of the man who has simply come to be known as “Q.T.”

Although we never actually see the diamonds in question, the bloodbath that ensues during the film’s duration gives little doubt as to their value, or to the talent of the man who has simply come to be known as “Q.T.”

Community Celebrates Marriage Equality Victory At Iconic LGBTQ Battleground

What better way to spend the last weekend of pride month than celebrate a hard-won marriage equality victory in one of the LGBTQ rights movement’s most iconic battlegrounds?

The Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality ensuring same-sex couples the right to marry was quite an introduction to New York City pride this weekend. After the decision, members and allies of the queer community gathered at the Stonewall Inn, the landmark bar that was home to the infamous 1969 riots between queer patrons and the police — and the place that many point to as the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ Civil Rights movement.

Nearly a half-century later, The Huffington Post headed to Christopher Street on Friday to talk to revelers at The Stonewall Inn, where many shared their reactions to the historic victory.

Couple Ally and Lauren and were thrilled about the court’s ruling. “It’s amazing that in any state, no matter what state, you can be married and love who you love and the government acknowledges that finally,” Lauren said.

The pace of marriage equality had accelerated in recent years, with 37 U.S. states passing legislation ensuring the right of gay couples to marry in the years and months before Friday’s ruling. Dennis, pictured below on the right, told HuffPost he wasn’t sure he’d have the opportunity to celebrate this pivotal moment in his lifetime. “Just five to seven years ago I didn’t think that it would happen so fast — I did not think this would happen in my lifetime,” he said.

“It’s honorable to here on such a momentous occasion,” Patrick, below, second from the left, said as he and his friends celebrated outside of Stonewall. “We were here two years ago when New York passed it, now we’re here and the country’s passing it, and I’m excited to see what the next step is — where we go from here.”

Geff, from the UK, offered an international perspective. “I think that this is sending a signal to other countries around the world globally because people look to America as a source of inspiration,” he said. The Supreme Court’s decision makes the US one of 21 other countries to legalize same-sex marriage.

As the day went on, hundreds visited the Stonewall Inn and shared their celebration of this historic moment in one of the many places we owe it to. See some of their beautiful images below.

So happy to be here, and lucky

13 Of Hollywood’s Most Iconic Blondes

Hollywood locks that stand the test of time. Who is the fairest of them all? You decide.

Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe’s spun-sugar platinum tresses were like Marilyn herself–somewhere between easy and elegant. But did you know the aspiring model and actress actually dyed her naturally brown locks golden after a cue that “gentlemen prefer blondes”? Good thing it suited her. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442673-1029443-1marilyn.jpg

Blake Lively
From beachy waves on Gossip Girl to perfectly crafted curls on the red carpet, Blake’s blonde tresses are an integral part of her persona. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442466-9522090-2blake2.jpg

Reese Witherspoon
She’s America’s sweetheart, a Southern belle and the classic girl next door–and her personality begins with her hair: golden blond to the point of practically glowing. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442560-2465329-3_reese.jpg

Brigitte Bardot
Hair with a certain je ne sais quoi. It’s no surprise why Brigitte Bardot–French actress, model and singer–was one of the biggest sex symbols of the ’50s and ’60s. Her mane murmured “groovy French fox,” with streaming blond waves framing her face and décolletage. And those bangs… We’ve never seen anyone make bangs look so come-hither. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442836-3934248-4_brigitte.jpg

Madonna
If one look could encompass ’80s fashion, Madonna’s fishnet stockings and bleached blond hair would certainly be a front-runner. While she has reinvented herself several times over the course of her long career, the singer, actress, showgirl and businesswoman is a blonde at heart. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442921-9017989-5_Madonna.jpg

Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly wore several hats: Hollywood movie star, fashion icon, princess of Monaco. With her Hermès Kelly bag in hand and perfectly coiffed hair, Grace was the definition of modern, chic and tasteful. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433442986-9432511-6_gracekelly.jpg

Twiggy
That sideswept pixie cut, that lanky boyish figure and those spidery lashes framing huge doe eyes: Twiggy’s mod look defined the Swinging Sixties. She was just 15 when she cut off her long flaxen locks, debuted the androgynous hairdo and ushered in a new standard of youthful sophistication. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443059-9136998-9_twiggy_v2.jpg

Gwen Stefani
Except for two short stints when she dyed her hair blue and then pink, Gwen Stefani has spent most of her career as a platinum blonde. She first adopted her signature platinum hue as a wee ninth grader and never turned back. Gwen’s bleached hair is like her style: brazen and playful. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443132-9357495-10gwenstefani.jpg

Goldie Hawn
She may have started her career by embracing a “dumb blonde” personality, but the smart and talented Goldie Hawn has since proved to be someone else entirely. Goldie’s popularity ascended throughout the ’70s as she acted, sang and produced her way through Hollywood. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443214-1259274-11_goldie.jpg

Veronica Lake
Veronica Lake was the embodiment of 1940s glamour: mature, polished and never too fussy. The funny thing is that she actually found her signature coy look by accident when a loose lock of hair fell over her right eye during a photo shoot. Mysterious and seductive, celebs like Sienna Miller and Amanda Seyfried still mimic the look today. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443295-5682875-12veronica_v2.jpg

Gwyneth Paltrow
We’ll always remember Gwyneth Paltrow’s sleek blond hairdo and Ralph Lauren dress at the 1999 Oscars (the same night she took home the Best Actress award for her performance in Shakespeare in Love). Gwyneth has played around with a handful of styles over the years, but her long, straight locks–whether tossed over her shoulders or pulled back into a ponytail–will always be a part of the actress’s classic look. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443383-3499460-13gwyneth_v2.jpg

January Jones
She’s best known for her role as the complex and mysterious Betty Draper on Mad Men, but January is a woman whose look is constantly changing. Whether she’s rocking face-framing bangs, a bleach-blond bob, platinum waves or even faded pink streaks, her hairstyles mimic her personality: sexy, provocative and risky. Get the look.

2015-06-04-1433443447-154775-8_januaryjones.jpg

Farrah Fawcett
In 1976, a young, up-and-coming Farrah Fawcett was photographed smiling from ear to ear, sporting a one-piece swimsuit and long feathered waves flung over her shoulders. The portrait sold 20 million copies, making Farrah a legit bombshell. Everyone from preteen roller skaters to full-grown disco divas scrambled to buy blow-dryers and massive cans of hair spray in an attempt to re-create her look, the “Farrah flip.” Get the look.

Adidas Introduces Three LGBT-Friendly Designs On Its Iconic Footwear In Honor Of Pride Month

Sportswear giant Adidas is following in the footsteps of Nike and Levi’s in putting a rainbow-hued twist on some of its most iconic designs in time for LGBT Pride Month.

Three Adidas staples — the Stan Smith, the Adilette Slide and the Superstar — are getting the limited edition makeover as part of the “Pride Pack.” Each of the designs draws inspiration from the LGBT rainbow flag, “a symbol of equality and inclusiveness that signifies the diversity of the LGBT community,” according to press materials.

The revamped footwear will launch June 6 and be available at Adidas Originals stores and retail partners.

Meanwhile, a portion of the sales will be donated to Portland’s New Avenues for Youth, an Oregon-based advocacy group focused on homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) adolescents and teens. Meanwhile, Adidas is also sponsoring Portland Monthly’s “Flare,” a Pride Month event slated for June. 11.

In 2013, Nike expanded its #BeTrue collection with a series of rainbow-inspired designs, with proceeds being donated to the LGBT Sports Coalition.

Levi’s followed suit a year later, offering a Pride collection that included both men’s and women’s T-shirts as well as a unisex tank top, all emblazoned with the jean company’s iconic “batwing” logo in rainbow colors.

3 Daughters on the Beauty Advice They Got from Their Iconic Moms

ELETTRA WIEDEMANN and Isabella Rossellini

Like most things in life, beauty is a combination of nature and nurture. So much of how you look is genetically predetermined, while the other idiosyncrasies, from pedicure preferences to skin care regimens, are habits learned in your formative years. You can thank your mom for both. At least that is the case for model Elettra Wiedemann, designer Margherita Maccapani Missoni Amos, and editor Chloe Malle, who inherited everything from their famously good hair to their age-defying sun-defense strategies from their iconic mothers. Among the things they are grateful for this Mother’s Day, we asked them to share the best beauty advice they got from their bombshell moms.

From Pharrell to Coco Chanel: The 26 Most Iconic Hats of All Time

Isabella Blow

The winning horses will wear flowers, but the most-talked about blooms at Churchill Downs this weekend will be the colorful, confectionary hats worn by hundreds of Kentucky Derby attendees. Where once it would have been unthinkable for a man or woman to leave home without a topper, these days, hats usually only get their moment of glory on occasions like these.

And yet, a certain hat on a certain person in a certain place can become a point of reference: Marlene Dietrich in Morocco wearing a top hat with androgynous sangfroid; Princess Beatrice at the royal wedding in a Philip Treacy fascinator (which now has its own Facebook page). Then there are the real hat people, who have made millinery part of their signature look, the likes of Isabella Blow, Jamiroquai, Slash, and Lou Doillon. It’s a list that runs the gamut from royalty (rock and blue-blooded), to beloved fictional characters, exhibitionists, and the camera-shy. On the eve of the Derby, we tip our hats to them.

15 Iconic Front Women Who Rewrote the Beauty Rules: From Tina Turner to Florence Welch

Tina Turner

“The girl anchors the stage, sucks in the male gaze, and depending who she is, throws her own gaze back into the audience,” writes Kim Gordon in her recent book, Girl in a Band. The legendary Sonic Youth front woman, who celebrates her 62nd birthday today, has done plenty of kohl-rimmed gaze-throwing in her decades commanding an audience. The sooty eye makeup is just one of the ways that Gordon has managed to set herself apart from the men she shared a stage with. “I . . . did everything possible to maintain an identity as an individual within the band,” she explained. Aside from mastering bass and vocals (not to mention a penchant for penning impactful no-wave lyrics), she also employed a grunge, but unquestionably feminine beauty equation—involving a calculated swipe of red lipstick and, in her words, “dumb[ing] down my middle-class look by messing with my hair.”

It’s a hair and makeup tactic that also worked for front woman Debbie Harry, who emphasized her angular bone structure with exaggerated blush and stage-ready eye shadow. No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani took the experimental glam approach and ran with it, donning every style from bantu knots to pink, blue, and bleached-blonde hair. But not all female leaders of the band are eager to look so feminine. Patti Smith admittedly borrowed from the boys, famously “machete-ing [her] way out of the folk era” by cutting her jet black hair to resemble Keith Richards’s choppy crop. And psychedelic singer Janis Joplin didn’t mind blending in with the flowing air-dried hair and makeup-free faces of her bandmates, her fearless voice was enough of a standout. In honor of Gordon’s birthday, a look back at the best girl-in-a-band beauty.

Joni Mitchell, Iconic Folk Singer, Hospitalized

Iconic folk singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to her official website, which is not run by the singer.

Paramedics responded to a call for an unconscious female at Mitchell’s Los Angeles home around 2:30 p.m. local time, sources told TMZ. The Los Angeles Fire Department told Variety that paramedics responded to a 911 call on Mitchell’s street, but did not say who the call was for nor would they release information about the patient’s condition. People magazine also reported that a patient was transported.

Requests for information from Mitchell’s representatives have not been answered.

The Canadian-born Mitchell, 71, has led a storied career, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential folk artists of the 1960s and 1970s. The winner of eight Grammy Awards, she is best known for her many hits including “River,” “Help Me,” “Both Sides Now” and “Big Yellow Taxi.” Mitchell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and she released a four-disc box set last year, The Associated Press reported.

It was not apparent if Mitchell had been hospitalized in the past. She has been an unapologetic smoker for most of her life, telling the Telegraph in 2007, “Smoking is one of life’s great pleasures.” Mitchell has said that she suffers from a condition called “Morgellons syndrome,” a somewhat controversial skin disorder that is characterized by sores and crawling sensations on the skin.

Exclusive! Peter Lindbergh on His Women, His New Book, and What Makes a Photograph Iconic

Peter Lindbergh Natalia Vodianova

Peter Lindbergh might very well be the man responsible for “the supermodel.” After all, it was his 1988 series of photographs of a small clutch of very hip but then not very well-known models—Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Tatjana Patitz, among them—sooty-eyed, rumple-haired, clad only in white men’s button-downs as they cavorted on the beach for Vogue, that lit that particular spark, one in which the viewer began to connect with these impossibly glamorous creatures, to fixate, to fascinate, and to dream on them. Even before then, and since, his work has been synonymous with a certain feeling, a palpable tenderness in the manner in which he treats his subjects, not as “girls” (as is so often used in fashion parlance) or as clothes hangers or as another object in the frame, but as women, with all of the inner life and mystery that the word implies. Not that he’d admit it. “I don’t see the difference between a girl and a woman, really,” Lindbergh says, surveying a series of portraits from his latest tome, Images of Women II: 2005–2014. There, in his now-trademark rich monochrome, is a reflective Diane von Furstenburg, an androgynous Lara Stone, a coquettish Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova, Mariacarla Boscono, Uma Thurman, Tilda Swinton, Charlotte Rampling, all caught in a moment of shared intimacy—as good a cross-section as any of the photographer’s breadth of influence and inspiration.

“I’ve been shooting her for nearly 38 years, maybe,” Lindbergh says of Rampling, “and all of the adjectives that I would use to describe her are really unbelievable. You cannot imagine anybody more beautiful—” Here, the photographer stops himself. “Probably ‘different,’ no? You cannot say that one woman is ‘more beautiful’ than another, though people always do. It’s so ridiculous to say that?” It is not a traditionally commercial, airbrushed, poreless veneer that attracts him, not by a long shot. “[Rampling] turned from the most breathtaking young beauty into kind of a grandmother, really. That’s a picture of a grandmother,” Lindbergh says, and the actress used the photograph for the promotional materials for her 2011 documentary self-portrait The Look, in which Lindbergh played a prominent role. “And that word already, people say, you know, ‘Oh, Peter, she’s not a grandmother, don’t say that,’ but I mean, grandmother is nothing bad. This is one of the last pictures we did together, and look how she looks. That is just amazing. Nobody can look like that when they’re 25 years old.”

There is an undeniable personal nature to Lindbergh’s photography—his focus on the eyes of his subjects, on their energy, the way in which women blossom under his lens—that reaches for a kind of beauty that exists beyond the surface. It is not about the next big thing, the newest fresh face, or fashionable favorite (though that often happens, too), but of conveying the feeling of knowing someone, and of being known. “What do you photograph, after all?” Lindbergh asks. “You look for honesty, and it strikes you, and then you start to have feelings about that person that you photograph, and that might sound strange, but then that feeling about that person leads them to feel that you understand her; she gives you a bit more than she might give other people. I like that honesty, that moment, the way that you look at me and the way I look at you, and that then there’s something kooky in between these two people. That feeling, that giving and taking, that is what you photograph. It’s not one person documenting another person, it’s a photograph of that relationship you have in that moment. You become another person, a little bit; you become that person that you feel that you are at that moment, and it makes you beautiful, or different, and that’s what’s on the film. And tomorrow you’ll be a totally different person, because tomorrow is another moment. It took 40 years before I understood that.”

Not that he’s done looking, or learning, for that matter. “There’s something else that makes a woman interesting, something beyond being young, or being old,” Lindbergh says, breaking into his quick, warm laugh. “And I’m going to find out what that something else is before I die, I hope.”

The Most Iconic Faces To Inspire Men’s Grooming Over the Past 30 Years

This article was written by Emma McKay and was originally published on AskMen.

On a crisp late January evening in Paris, in a sprawling bar, Le Perchoir, spanning several stories high above the streets of the 11th arrondissement, pro kiteboarder Youri Zoon ambles in for his interview. As we talk, the bar fills up with a who’s who of Parisian cool, posing for photos and sipping bespoke cocktails: fashion industry savants, women in faux fur and big felt hats, avant-garde musicians. We’re here to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Biotherm Homme, a high-end French skincare brand (disclosure: I was there as a guest of Biotherm Homme).

Youri’s passionate about his sport, and his enthusiasm shines through in his lack of canned responses. We talk about kiteboarding more than we do moisturizer. As the face of Biotherm Homme’s Total Recharge line and the subject of the brand’s new 360-degree Oculus Rift video (shot using six GoPros strapped to his head), Zoon’s life exposes him to all the punishment that wind, salt and sun can bring. Between his extreme activities and frequent air travel, Zoon’s skin is no stranger to fatigue and dehydration — this guy legitimately needs cold weather skin care.

Biotherm Homme’s choice of Zoon over a more recognizable celeb or model got me thinking about the kinds of men who’ve appeared in grooming campaigns over the years. How do brand ambassadors reflect men’s evolving attitudes toward grooming? I decided to take a closer look at some of the most iconic faces from the past 30 years of marketing grooming products to men. I’ve included men’s underwear ads in this roundup because, as intimate and personal products that haven’t always been marketed directly to men, they follow a similar trajectory to grooming ads, addressing men’s appearance-related aspirations through a focus on the male physique of the moment.

Putting Men In The Picture

In 1985, when Biotherm Homme’s first product, an anti-wrinkle cream for men, launched, only about a quarter of all men’s products were actually purchased by men, so marketing campaigns for men’s grooming products inevitably targeted women.

Women were still the focus in 1990, when Chanel launched a campaign for its new men’s cologne, Egoiste, in which the male subject never actually shows his face. The ads represented a shift for the brand. Arie Kopelman, then-president and chief operating officer of Chanel, spoke to the New York Times in 1991 about the campaign, explaining that, “The focus has always been on the women’s products. Until now, we’ve never put any marketing power behind the men’s fragrances.”

Mark Wahlberg for Calvin Klein, 1992

2015-03-27-1427487474-8797763-markwahlberg.jpg

In 1992, long before Bieber ever slunk around in CK boxers, Calvin Klein introduced Mark “Marky Mark” Wahlberg into its campaigns, and the rapper/actor’s abs as captured by the late legend Herb Ritts helped sexualize — and popularize — something as previously mundane as men’s underwear. Then-Calvin Klein Senior VP Neil Kraft, who was behind the Wahlberg campaign, recently explained to AdAge: “[Wahlberg] appealed to women, he appealed to gay men and he appealed to men who wanted to be him.” The campaign had a massive impact on the men’s underwear industry, boosting sales “exponentially.”

Tyson Beckford for Polo, 1993

2015-03-27-1427487499-8264717-TysonBeckford.jpg

With their Tyson Beckford campaigns, the all-American Polo Ralph Lauren brand introduced a face and a muscular, sculpted physique who could play Marky Mark’s game while giving the alpha male a distinctive new look. Beckford helped define the ’90s, to the point that in 2014 he was named by Vogue as the No. 1 male model of all time.

Larry Scott for Acqua di Gio, 1997-2007

2015-03-27-1427487579-4356191-LarryScott.jpg

Larry Scott was the face of Armani’s Acqua di Gio for a decade. He pioneered the now-iconic “wet guy” look, and it’s been a go-to for marketing men’s fragrances ever since. We don’t really know if he’s been rolling around on a beach, if he just surfaced from a deep dive or if he just stepped out of the shower, and it doesn’t really matter — we see the wet guy up close, with beads of water trickling down his face. He must smell good.

David Beckham for Armani, 2008

2015-03-27-1427487546-9758015-DavidBeckham.jpg

David Beckham was the face of Armani, and just about everything else, in the late 2000s. “The biggest metrosexual in Britain,” according to the man who coined the term, was also husband to a woman successful in her own right, a tattooed father and a legendary retired soccer player. Appearing in ads for Pepsi, Samsung, Adidas and Burger King, H&M and more, he represented the male ideal on an international scale: accomplished and attractive, with rebellious sex appeal. His signature scent, Intimately Beckham for Him, which launched in 2006, was one of the first male celebrity scents on the market.

Clive Owen for Bvlgari Man, 2010

2015-03-27-1427487608-5394885-CliveOwen.jpg

With its campaigns featuring Clive Owen, who had appeared in ads for Lancôme’s Hypnose Homme just three years earlier, Bvlgari Man also drew upon the actor’s power as a credible influencer. His poses in these ads are relaxed; they present him as a multidimensional, interesting guy, somebody you could see yourself having a drink with.

Isaiah Mustafa for Old Spice, 2010

2015-03-27-1427487632-1902003-IsaiahMustafa.jpg

Isaiah Mustafa’s Old Spice ads helped usher in the viral internet era with a memorably big splash of aftershave. The zany ads got people talking, and that meant they were talking about Old Spice — a brand many guys previously identified with their grandfathers — again. Brut retaliated that same year with its “Slap a man in a towel” “Brut slap” online campaign, in which a man somewhat resembling Mustafa, wearing a towel, could be slapped via a click of a mouse.

Michael Phelps for Head and Shoulders, 2012

2015-03-27-1427487656-3216691-MichaelPhelps.jpg

In recent years, companies began to select athletes over models and celebrities to promote men’s grooming products, and these athletes don’t all resemble David Beckham. As men who actually sweat, smell and expose themselves to the elements on a regular basis, athletes provided a more authentic opportunity to connect with men around the topic of male grooming needs.

At the Biotherm Homme party in Paris, Bixente Lizerazu, a current face of Biotherm Homme and a retired champion soccer star, explained to me how he witnessed grooming catch on in locker rooms: “It happened gradually, little by little, first of all in the changing rooms after training sessions, suddenly you noticed guys using creams. At first it was a little bit funny, or awkward, but it changed.” Brands seized on the opportunity to connect high-performance athletes with their products, especially when the opportunity was the 2012 Olympic Games, an event that had the entire world’s attention.

Ryan Lochte for Gillette, 2012

Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte were just two of 150 top athletes sponsored by P&G, the parent company of brands like Gillette and Head & Shoulders, at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Like the Old Spice example, this Gillette campaign is the unmistakeable product of a viral internet era, hashtags and all.

Dwyane Wade for Dove Men+Care, 2013

In 2013, as consumers tired of the “doofus dad” archetype they’d been served for years, brands took realness and relatability to a whole new level. Dove Men+Care worked with NBA star Dwyane Wade and ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas for 2013’s “Real Moments” campaign, presenting an image of hands-on fatherhood that speaks to modern guys. Dwyane Wade appears at home, with his kids, a natural setting in which he’s not being presented as a useless dad or an unattainable hero, taking the locker-room endorsement to a place that really hits home.

Juan Betancourt for Tom Ford, 2013

2015-03-27-1427487724-6216678-JuanBetancourt.jpg

The interesting thing about model Juan Betancourt in this 2013 Tom Ford ad is that he has a facial hair. In 2013, we were deep in a “peak beard” moment (and it isn’t over yet). The interesting thing about this ad campaign is that, although this particular image recalls the “wet man” look we’re so used to seeing in men’s grooming ads, other images in the campaign show Betancourt actively grooming himself — wearing a clay mask in one image, applying an under-eye cream in another. “For the first time ever,” Josh Meyer, CEO of Brickell Men’s Products, points out, “starting in 2013, men spent more on skincare products than they did on shaving products.” No question about it: men’s grooming has gone mainstream.

Jonas Kessler for John Varvatos, 2014

In this ad, part of his 2014 campaign for John Varvatos, the bearded Jonas Kessler may be shirtless, but his frame is not nearly as “ripped” as a Wahlberg, Beckford or Beckham. The diversification of the kinds of images used to sell men’s grooming products reflects the diversification of the market in general. Explains Meyer, “The larger an industry, the more fragmented and specific it gets.”

Whereas just a few years earlier, men might have been self-conscious to admit any involvement with grooming products, at this point, men are legitimately interested in the benefits of looking their best. They want to look “well-groomed, tan, [with] less wrinkles, fuller hair, [have] no [or] less acne, smooth silky skin and anti-aging options,” according to Larry H. Oskin, president and founder of Marketing Solutions, a marketing agency specialized in the beauty industry. As Meyer points out, “younger men (ages 25-40)… grew up using hair gel and other ‘metro’ hair products for men, so using skincare is a natural evolution.”
