On that note, let’s not hold you back – onto the Weekly Catch!


Gigi Hadid
The American model won the Masterchef Celebrity Showdown competition on Monday. Rather than us explain the details, let’s hear from Gigi.

On what’s more intimidating, fashion or cooking…

On the charity she was competing for…

Congrats, Gigi!

Stephanie Seymour
The former Victoria’s Secret model was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and unsafe backing in Connecticut this past weekend, and she was released on a $500 bond, according to NBC News.


Victoria’s Secret
The lingerie brand has announced its upcoming Swim Special, which is set to feature models: Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Elsa Hosk, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill and Vita Sidorkina with performances by Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas.

The Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, which is the brand’s second installment, was shot in St. Barth and is set to air 9 March. Be sure to check out the teaser above!


Glenn Frey of the Eagles
With the passing of Eagles guitarist, Glenn Frey, on Monday, we thought it would be a fitting tribute to share one of our favorite Eagles songs – Hotel California. Glenn was 67.


Beach Living

Although the video we are going to show you was created in honor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Autumn/Winter 2016, it was not only the multiple appearances of the Mercedes-Benz 1970 280SEL that caught our attention but also the fact that whether you are a car aficionado or a fashion lover, you will appreciate this short video.

Sound director Michel Gaubert is featured, along with Petit Michel, in the luxury carmaker’s Fashion Creatives series’ latest video.


Alessandra Ambrosio and Cristiano Ronaldo
When we start with those two names, we don’t really need to go into too much detail. Instead, we’ll let the pictures do the talking. Although, we’ll note the duo were shot for the February issue of GQ – “The Body Issue”.

Talk about one steamy way to begin and end this edition of Weekly Catch.

Since the weather at our home office in New York is piled high with snow today, we find it fitting to leave you with one last shot to warm you up.
