Destination Summer: 10 Models Take Us on Vacation

-------

Looking to soak up the last few rays of summer sun (fashion month is only a few weeks away), models swapped their stilettos for sandals as they flocked to sand and sea to unwind—and luckily for us, they Instagrammed every moment along the way. Sporting a scuba mask, Josephine Skriver cozied up with a sea turtle, while Cora Emmanuel snapped a selfie from the clear aqua waves of her native Martinique. Anja Rubik chilled out #onaboat, inspiring a case of serious desk-side envy. Check out 10 of our favorite models’ vacation snapshots from the week, below.

Kate Moss Plays Director for British Vogue

-------


We’re used to seeing Kate Moss in front of the camera. Just in the past few weeks, the supe starred in the new Stella McCartney ad campaign and verified that her career is stronger than ever—this year was her most lucrative to date. (She’s reportedly worth $92 million.) Seeing her on the other side of the lens, however, isn’t something that happens quite so often. For British Vogue‘s September issue, Moss took her first stab at filmmaking with The Wolf in Her, a short film that captures Lara Stone frolicking in the woods for a Mario Sorrenti shoot. Shot on a Super 8 camera, the film has a fuzzy, ethereal quality to it, enriched by background music from her husband Jamie Hince’s band, The Kills. A few wolves also made it into the video, which makes us question the fear factor on set. We’d like to think Moss kept her cool, as always. Watch the film, here.

Snack Time: 10 Models Share Their Food Obsessions on Instagram

Food snaps are a fixture of Instagram—even top catwalkers are getting in on it. (See? They really are just like us.) Brit beauty Suki Waterhouse took literal inspiration from the food-porn trend and snapped a “cheeky” photo of her box of peaches, and Karlie Kloss checked in at LAX with a suitcase filled with her Karlie’s Kookies. Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel wrapped up a 1 a.m. photo shoot and celebrated in the best way we could think of: with a slice of pizza. Here’s how 10 top models satisfy their cravings. But hold your #YouDidNotEatThat comments for now, they aren’t all high-calorie.

Kate Moss Is Richer Than Ever

-------

Kate MossSome would argue that Kate Moss’ career was hottest in the ’90s, but if her paychecks are any indication, the model is now bigger than ever. According to The Telegraph, this year has been Moss’ most lucrative to date. In the last 12 months, her business assets rose from £11 million to £17 million, bringing her net worth to £55 million (or about $92 million). Her two companies, Tilly Church Ltd and Skate LLP, both saw significant increases between October 2012 and October 2013, roughly totaling £5 million.

Moss’ success this year can also be attributed to dozens of global magazine covers and advertising campaigns, like the ones for Kérastase, David Yurman, and Stella McCartney (which is included in our Best of Fall ’14 campaigns feature today). Other additions to Moss’ endless portfolio? A Playboy editorial for the magazine’s 60th anniversary; her ongoing contract with Rimmel London; a relaunched collaboration with Topshop; and the Burberry fragrance campaign, which she fronts alongside Cara Delevingne. Timeless is an understatement. Moss’ fortune is expected to rise even more before 2015.

Business Lessons From a Supermodel

-------

JCPenney Launches THE BODY By Elle Macpherson IntimatesIn an era when supermodels are reaching the heights of celebrity fame, it’s becoming increasingly common for the biggest supes to turn their runway renown into a business. (Karlie’s Kookies, anyone?) Elle Macpherson, one of the hottest faces of the ’90s, was among the first models-turned-businesswoman who is still thriving today. The now 50-year-old turned her nickname, “The Body,” into an empire, complete with workout videos, beauty products, and an intimates collection. When recently asked by The Huffington Post how she felt about the name, she replied, “When ‘The Body’ moniker was born, the first thing I thought of was, ‘How can I capitalize on this?’…I’ve built a brand around that. The Body itself has become a business, and it’s very profitable.” Macpherson and her fellow super-moguls set the bar pretty high for today’s top models. Take notes, girls.
