Tom Ford Kicks Off NYFW With SS18 Women’s Collection Show Starring Gigi Hadid

(SL) – Gigi Hadid  was a sheek mix of the past and future walking the runway for designer Tom Ford as he kicked off NYFW.

The model looked stunning sporting a Twiggie style with Bridgette Bardot makeup paired with a full-length gown from Ford’s SS18 Women’s Collection Show.

Don’t worry Gigi didn’t give in to the popular big chop. She was photographed backstage with her long blonde locks being blown out before the show.

Australian Model Ajak Deng Quits Modeling

(SL) – Her manager Stephen Bucknall said he struggles to book jobs for Deng in Australia, despite having starred overseas for Louis Vuitton, Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino. She will also feature in 2016 campaigns for Givenchy and Marc Jacobs.

Deng, whose family fled South Sudan in 2005, was raised in Melbourne.
She made her runway debut for Chloé and walked for countless international designers in 2010.
Deng has also appeared in campaigns for the likes of Barneys New York, Gap, Marc Jacobs, Kenzo, and Kate Spade.
She previously discussed racism in the fashion industry. She tweeted in 2014 that she was “kicked out of Balmain for being black,” adding, “I know a lot of black models would rather kiss someone’s ass than being honest but guessed what? I do not gaged [sic] a damn f*ck” before deleting her Twitter account.
Her shock announcement comes just one week after a successful New York Fashion Week schedule, featuring in some of the hottest shows of the season, from Zac Posen to Marc Jacobs.
Oddly enough, she’s going back to the same Continent that wouldn’t book her. I guess, however, it is home.
