Christie Brinkley was not interested for modelling
Christie BrinkleyFormer supermodel Christie Brinkley has revealed she "never" aspired to walk the ramp, saying she just went with the flow when it came to her career. Brinkley, who was discovered at the age of 19, was one of the world’s most in-demand beauties during her heyday but she insists it wasn’t her lifelong dream. "Modelling was never what I set out to do, and there was never a time when I said, ‘OK, this is what I’m doing.’ It was more like, ‘If they ask me to do a job, I’ll say OK!’ "Sometimes I did think, ‘Wow, this is working’ but there was also always this feeling that the job was probably going to be the last," she said. The 57-year-old beauty, who had recently made her West End theatre debut with ‘Chicago’, said she avoids the sun to maintain her good looks.

"I grew up a surfer girl in Malibu so I’m always running after my girls with sunblock going, ‘Believe me, you’ll thank me for this.’ I can literally see my own thighs where my sarong shielded me from the sun," she added.

Mila Kunis accepts a date with Marine Sgt. Scott Moore
Mila KunisMarine Sgt. Scott Moore has a big date coming up when he returns from military service in Afghanistan. The data systems technician gained fame - and apparently a date with actress Mila Kunis - when he posted a video on YouTube last week inviting the ‘Black Swan’ star to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C., in November. The annual event marks the founding of the Marines in 1775. Kunis learned of the video during a recent interview with her ‘Friends With Benefits’ co-star, Justin Timberlake, who urged her to fulfil her patriotic duties. Kunis agreed to the date, saying, "I’ll go." Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, had no comment. Moore said Tuesday that he made the video after a fellow Marine bet he wouldn’t.

Standing on a base in Afghanistan and wearing his uniform and black sunglasses, he says on the 19-second video: "Hey Mila. It’s Sergeant Moore, but you can call me Scott. I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, N.C., with yours truly. So take a second, think about it and get back to me."

He said that though he has not communicated directly with the actress, "I have heard back from her people."

"I’m very excited about the opportunity to share the experience with Ms. Kunis and would like to thank her for accepting my offer," he said.

The corps’ anniversary ball is one of the most important events on a Marine’s calendar, according to spokeswoman Capt. Kendra Hardesty. Balls are held at bases and less formal celebrations by units in the field to mark the Nov. 10, 1775, founding of the branch.

Balls at garrisons are formal affairs, following a ceremony established in 1952. At each ball, the Marine Corps commandant’s birthday message is read, along with a 1921 order issued by Maj. Gen. John A. Lejeune summarizing the tradition and mission of the corps.

After that, a cake-cutting ceremony is held in which the first piece is presented to the guest of honor, and then to the oldest Marine present, who in turn passes it to the youngest Marine present.

"This ball will be special not only because of Mila, but also because we will have recently returned from our deployment to Afghanistan," Moore said. He also served in Iraq in 2009.

Kunis won’t be the first celebrity to attend a Marine birthday ball. Other Hollywood stars who’ve attended over the years include action film actor Chuck Norris and R. Lee Ermey, a retired Marine whose most famous role was an intense drill instructor in the film ‘Full Metal Jacket.’
Gisele Bundchen not among world’s top five models in demand
Gisele BundchenGisele Bundchen, Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer may be well known, but their names do not figure anywhere on the list of the world’s top five most in-demand models by industry standards. The list features rather less familiar names like Anja Rubik (26), Freja Beha Erichsen (23), Lara Stone (27), Abbey Lee Kershaw (24), and Constance Jablonski (20). The five alone have collectively appeared on 265 magazine covers, walked 232 catwalk shows and have 115,000 Twitter followers. A survey by Fashion Spot showed, Polish model Rubik was the most in-demand girl between April 2010 and April this year, and she has posed on an impressive 59 magazine covers, and appeared on 43 designers’ runways.

But that is a small workload compared to Constance Jablonski, who walked for an impressive 83 designers in the past year alone. That is in addition to appearing on 46 magazine covers.

Lara Stone, the Dutch-born model wife of comedian David Walliams, ranked third in the list, but due to her contract with Calvin Klein, her appearances have been fewer than her peers, with only two runway shows and 47 magazine covers.

Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen is one of the industry’s most popular names, having landed high-profile campaigns for Chanel and Valentino. In addition to appearing on 65 different covers and in 51 shows, she also starred in a short film by Karl Lagerfeld.

Melbourne-born Abbey Lee Kershaw rounds out the top five. She has also modelled for Chanel, as well as Tom Ford, and has been hailed Australia’s biggest model export since Elle Macpherson.

First, I have to hire a producer, and then the producer comes to the Academy with suggestions for the host. So how could we have a host without a producer?" he asked.

Claudia Schiffer launches mum-friendly fashion line
Claudia SchifferSupermodel and super-mom Claudia Schiffer has launched her new cashmere collection in Paris during Haute Couture fashion week with the hope that her brand will spice up the fashion taste of other mothers. The 40-year-old former ‘Chanel’ muse said at designer store Colette that she always wanted to get into fashion design and had finally decided to launch her own brand that will flaunt the kind of clothes she wears all the time as a working mother, such as cashmere dresses and sweaters. “I am always very busy, I have a family life, I want to wear the same outfit when I bring my children to school, then go to work with it - and in the evening I want to be able to just change accessories,’ said Schiffer. ‘Effortless chic. That is the idea,’ she said.

Schiffer’s collection that she created in a joint venture with Iris von Arnim, includes long tube black and navy blue dresses, grey oversized cardigans and cable-knit sweaters costing from 250 to 500 pounds.

“I want the product to live without my name so that it does not really need me. As a company, I hope it builds up over time so that one day, hopefully, I can hand it over to my children,” added Schiffer for whom the launch was a ‘dream come true’.

Hugh Laurie becomes brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris
Hugh LaurieBritish actor Hugh Laurie, who is famed as grumpy Dr House has been cast as the new male face for L’Oreal Paris Men Expert products. With the new feather in his cap, the 52-year-old has joined the league of Gerard Butler and Patrick Dempsey, who are already ambassadors for L’Oreal Paris. “At first I thought it was a mistake, but then I realized that L’Oreal wasn’t looking for models but for people with strong personalities, who are worth it and who aren’t afraid to proclaim that using cosmetics can be a very masculine decision after all,” said Hugh. The men’s grooming business has grown significantly over the past two years, with British men now spending more on skincare than ever before.

At such a time and scenario, it is presumed that Laurie could be the ideal model to attract men who fear their masculinity will be threatened by using cosmetics.
