Kicking us off is the news that Miranda Kerr and husband Evan Spiegel are expecting their first child together.

“Miranda, Evan and Flynn are looking forward to welcoming the newest member of their family,” her rep shared via a statement.

Miranda has a son, Flynn, whom she had when she was married to Orlando Bloom.


Kate Upton married baseball pitcher for the Houston Astros (who are currently the World Series Champions) Justin Verlander on November 4.

The model took to Instagram to share the news, “I feel so lucky that I got to marry my best friend!! @justinverlander Thank you to our family and friends for making this weekend so fun and magical!”

As we have our own Sarah Flint shoes, we were excited to read about Sarah partnering with Cindy Crawford! The model took to social media to share the following.

“Walking the walk in @SarahFlint_NYC. So proud to support and invest in this young woman who is totally passionate about shoes! Check them out on…”

It appears some Victoria’s Secret models are having visa troubles for the lingerie brand’s upcoming runway show in Shanghai, China.

According to Fashionista, it appears the Russian and Ukrainian models have been denied, which include: Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova – all from Russia – and Dasha Khlystun – from Ukraine.


Gigi Hadid will also not be walking in the upcoming show. The model took to Twitter to share the update, “I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!! Can’t wait to tune in with everyone to see the beautiful show I know it will be, and already can’t wait for next year! 🙂 x”

One model that will hopefully not have any trouble getting into China is Elsa Hosk, who is slated to wear the brand’s Swarovski look, which is to celebrate Victoria’s Secret’s 15-year “Crystal Anniversary”. This “look” will include one million Swarovski crystals and is done in partnership with Swarovski, according to WWD.

With more than 275,000 crystals, 200 yards of woven ribbon and pavé crystals, hand-beaded jewelry and a crystallized wing harness, the wings weigh in at 14 pounds.

“When I found out I was wearing the Swarovski look, I was so excited as I’ve always wanted to wear it. I can’t wait to walk down the runway in it,” commented Elsa to WWD. “It was a happy day.”

“The construction of the outfit makes you feel out of this world. [It’s] like wearing an armour of crystals. The look is sexy, but also really cool and modern,” Hosk continued. “The wings are my favorite part; they are a masterpiece, like an exotic superhero bug!”


Although Europe is known for being open to some risque imagery, it has recently banned this ad from publication.

“An ad for a glossy UK travel magazine featuring an ‘unhealthily thin’ model posing on a beach has been banned.

The ad in Glamour magazine for Condé Nast Traveller was branded ‘socially irresponsible’ by watchdogs…”
