The Ice Bucket Just Got Much Chicer, Thanks to Gisele Bündchen and Mario Testino

-------

The chances of Donatella Versace dumping a bucket of ice water over her head seem slim to none, but this could be a real thing—maybe. This afternoon, after accepting his nomination by Gisele Bündchen, Mario Testino called upon Donatella, Kate Moss, and David Beckham to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge. The monthlong campaign, in efforts to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), quickly went viral with influencers like Oprah pouring it out on Instagram. But what started as an Internet stunt has reportedly raised more than $10 million. We’re ready to see more of fashion’s favorites participate—and we’d happily nominate ourselves to pour anything on David Beckham.

Gisele Bündchen Named the New Face of Stuart Weitzman

If anyone can fill the shoes of Kate Moss—literally and figuratively—it’s Gisele Bündchen, who has replaced the Brit supermodel as the new face (and feet) of Stuart Weitzman. Also known as the wealthiest model in history, Bündchen appears in the Mario Testino-lensed Fall ’14 campaign wearing white jeans, spiky ankle boots, and nothing else. In addition to her international appeal, perfect bronzed skin, and million-dollar physique, Bündchen’s versatility made her a natural choice for Weitzman.

The advertising campaign will appear in the U.S., Italy, France, England, Dubai, Germany, Spain, and Asia. Fans can watch a behind-the-scenes video on stuartweitzman.com.

Miranda Kerr Proves Model-Slash-Actress Is So Last Season

Miranda Kerr

It would seem that model-slash-singer is overtaking the age-old model-slash-actress label—particularly among Victoria’s Secret supermodels. First, Cara Delevingne proved she’s more than a few goofy faces when she sang “I Want Candy” for a Katie Grand x Hogan video. Then, Gisele Bündchen lent her talents to not one, but two H&M commercials, most recently covering Blondie’s “Heart of Glass.”. And today, Bobby Fox released a cover of Elvis Presley’s “You’re the Boss,” with Miranda Kerr (OK, she’s a former V.S. model, but still…) taking over Ann-Margret’s part. While the song lacks Elvis and Ann-Margret’s palpable chemistry, we have to hand it to Kerr: Her voice does sound supersweet (listen here, below). Turns out, she’s had a little practice. Back in 2012, she sang a tune for a (slightly bizarre) Japanese commercial for Lipton Iced Tea. Maybe The Voice should start filming a models-only segment?

Gisele Bündchen’s Blondie Moment

We love a multitalented model, so we were pleasantly surprised to hear that Gisele Bündchen is going back into the studio for a new H&M campaign. If you recall, the super teamed up with H&M last fall to record The Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night,” with each song purchase benefitting UNICEF. This time around, Bündchen is recording a cover of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” with French music producer Bob Sinclar. “I never in a million years thought I would record a song and work with a producer like Bob,” she said. The song and video will be released in May.

Lady Gaga Gets Undone for Porter

-------

Lady GagaLast week, Portermagazine celebrated Lady Gaga’s 28th birthday in a big way: by confirming her as the cover star of Issue 2. Naturally, there was speculation aplenty as to how the star would be presented: Would Portergo over-the-top in true Artpop fashion? Or would the look be a little more natural, à la Gisele on Issue 1? We were pleased to see the latter was the case when Porterrevealed the black-and-white cover on Instagram this morning. Lensed by Inez & Vinoodh, Gaga is shown with minimal makeup, soft waves, and messy bangs. It’s the icon as she is rarely seen, but it’s right in line with Porter‘s mission to focus on strong women and their stories—not costumes and unattainable perfection.

Debuting exclusively here on Style.com are two spreads from the story inside. The vibe is moody, sensual, and relaxed, depicting Gaga in comfortable boudoir attire (including a vintage robe that belonged to her grandmother). The idea was to capture her in a pared-down, “undone” state, channeling seventies female musicians. And while it isn’t what we’re used to seeing, Gaga told Porter‘s Christine Lennon that it spurred some nostalgia.

“I used to wear outfits like this! It brought me full circle, returning to my old style,” she said. Her favorite rock-and-rollers inspired her outfits when she was a teenager performing in Manhattan clubs. “I was a huge fan of The Beatles, Yoko Ono, Stevie Nicks, and Led Zeppelin,” she said. “I used to emulate that style, wear my mom’s old clothing, go to vintage shops, and I still had that look when I went to college and wore my little hippie outfits. Then when I was 19 on the Lower East Side, I started experimenting more with glam rock. So this shoot really spans my style from 17 to almost 20.” And after that, we all know what happened: “I started having a little more fun with futurism.”
