Why Yujin Seo Is The Next Korean Model Poised To Go Global

00-story-yujin-seo
A new slew of Korean models dominated this Fashion Week circuit, so naturally, the hunt for the next stunner from Seoul is on. As the city’s Spring 2018 shows begin today, one particularly striking unknown is worth watching: Yujin Seo, the 17-year-old with the one-of-a-kind face that has taken the local fashion industry by storm. In a makeshift tent behind the DDP show venue, the Seoul-born and raised model sits down for a quick chat between fittings, wearing a white lace Gucci dress and cradling a bottle of green tea. She has the shy, sweet manner of a high school student (which she is) who has suddenly found herself in desperate demand. But no one forced her into the industry; Seo fell in love with...

Rihanna Wore Kaia Gerber’s Off-White Runway Look

Once again, phresh off the runway.

Rihanna is known to rock looks straight from the runway (she doesn't have a song called "Phresh Out The Runway" for nothing), so it's no surprise that her latest outfit comes right from Off-White's Spring 2018 collection.
Last night, the singer stepped out in the Virgil Abloh-designed look worn by Kaia Gerber on the runway at Paris Fashion Week. Posing in front of a giant framed $100 bill (how else does one show off their new outfit?), Bad Gal Riri wore the full look from the cropped camel jacket down to the white boots.

thanks. @virgilabloh @off____white

Cindy Crawford has defended her decision to let her 16-year-old daughter, Kaia Gerber model. The supermodel says that she is more concerned about letting her daughter drive a car then enter the world of fashion.
"My daughter just got a driver's licence," Crawford told The Associated Press. "I'm a lot more concerned about her driving by herself then entering the world of modelling."

She went on to explain that she feels she has the advantage because she has been a part of the industry for so long and can therefore give her children the best advice. "The great thing for my kids is that I know a lot about that world," she said. "I feel like: Who better to help guide them...

The supermodel made another rare runway appearance at Paris Fashion Week.

After walking the runway at last week's Versace show alongside fellow '90s supermodels, Naomi Campbell made another catwalk cameo tonight at Off-White's Spring 2018 show in Paris.
The super walked the runway in a white ruffled blazer and cropped spandex leggings featuring an 'Off' logo. Campbell's look, along with Off-White's entire spring collection, was inspired by Princess Diana. Over the summer, creative director Virgil Abloh revealed this season would pay homage to the late royal's style, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of her tragic death this past August. As for Naomi's look, it combined both Diana's penchant for tailored jackets as well as the casual athleticwear she donned during her downtime.

Our Favorite freckled Models Of 2017

Plenty of kids grew up being teased for having freckles. But now, a healthy spray of natural spots has become a desirable status symbol for models—a unique trait that sets you apart. Just ask London-born It girl Adwoa Aboah, who has absolutely been dominating the runway and editorial scene lately, and is now busy promoting her film debut alongside Scarlett Johansson (not too shabby) in Ghost in the Shell. In addition to her badass attitude and shaved head, what’s made Aboah stand out is her speckles. Following in her path is one of our favorite newcomers Aleece Wilson, whose Instagram handle is @oddfreckles. During her first-ever fashion month, Wilson made a memorable impression at major shows including: Alexander Wang, Marc...

Model Teddy Quinlivan walks the runway during the Louis Vuitton show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2017 on October 5, 2016 in Paris, France.

But it's only now that she's shared her trans identity with others, and in an interviewwith CNN, Quinlivan explained why it felt so important for her to come out as trans now:

"I've decided to reveal my trans identity because of the political climate in the world right now — particularly in...

Gucci Enlists Dapper Dan For Its New Campaign

Fret not, fashion folk: all is well between Gucci and Dapper Dan! The Italian brand has just tapped the Harlem fashion icon for its men’s tailoring campaign.
Dan (real name Daniel Day) made a name for himself in the 1980s for his made-to-order designs that often re-appropriated logos from famous fashion houses. One of his most iconic pieces—a jacket with oversized sleeves featuring the Louis Vuitton logo—was re-worked by Alessandro Michele for Gucci’s cruise 2018 collection with the interlocking Gucci logo. This set off a firestorm of debate in the fashion world as to whether or not Michele had copied Dan.

Gigi Hadid A Wardrobe Malfunction On The Runway So Bella Helperd Her Out

Not even an It model like Gigi Hadid can escape a wardrobe malfunction during fashion week. While walking for the Anna Sui show tonight at NYFW, the 22-year-old hit the runway in a bohemian-chic ensemble—complete with a feathered shawl, sequined dress, necklace, and sheer socks—but one of her shoes was missing.

Nevertheless, the model strutted on, unfazed. Hadid's platform sandals didn't look easy to walk in with only half of the pair, but she carried on like a professional, while tiptoeing on her right foot to keep her balance.

During the final walk, however, her little sister stepped in.

Teyana Taylor Closed a Fashion Week Show With The Fiercest Walk Ever

We've finally figured it out—the only thing fiercer than Teyana Taylor's body is her runway walk. The singer (who's perhaps best known for starring in Kanye West's "Fade" video) graced the catwalk today for streetwear brand GCDS's presentation during New York Fashion Week, and she closed the show with a strut like no other.

Watch and be amazed:
