  1. I honestly don't mind masculine Doutzen with abs. She rocks that look imo, as much as she does a softer one. Also on one of the pictures of the editorial, she is riding the horse 😏 without the saddle. Anyway, most editorials don't really tell a story anyway; it's just about combining pretty things.
  2. Huh, never knew that. Shows how much bigger lips can change your face; she looks like a completely different person now. Still though, damn those parents for letting something like that get done on a girl that young. She's had the same face for years now, so if she's got something done, it was done when she was still a teenager. Anyway, whatever she did, it obviously worked out well in her case. She has one of the best faces in modeling right now.

    Couldn't find that exact pic but I did find a bigger one of the one already posted plus some others from that shoot.
  4. Right? I saw the youtube interview and people keep saying how Kaia is mature beyond her years and well, she's not. She's a media trained 18-year-old. Cindy left absolutely nothing to chance when it comes to her daughter's modeling career. It's baffling to me that so many people don't realize how much of a head start she got. She was born with great genes, rich parents and a supermodel mom. Anybody can succeed with that combination. It's better than winning the jackpot!
  5. I always find it ironic that when a model gains a bit of weight immediately the question arises whether they are pregnant, as if there is no way for a model to just fill out a bit over the years like the rest of us mortals. Also, if you look at Taylor throughout the years, her weight gain has been slowly progressing since the beginning. If you look at pics from back when she first started as a teenager, she was rail thin back then, barely any shape to her at all. This makes sense for a teenager, because their bodies are still catching up with all the changes. Then she started at VS and started filling out a little. Now she's in her twenties she gained a little more weight and honestly I like the way she looks now. I think it suits her. She has a nice hourglass shape. It's just noticeable because high fashion models are expected to not carry an ounce of fat and Taylor has some meat on her bones. But honestly I think that if you'd meet her irl you'd still be surprised by how thin she is. Most models, when you see them in real life, are tiny. I was in NY during NY Fashion Week a few years back, came across a bunch of models standing outside waiting around and I was just caught off guard by how thin they all were. Like yes, they look thin on candid pictures, but irl that effect is much more dramatic. Anyway, from what I can tell Taylor is taking it easy this year and who can blame the girl. She's been working non stop since she was a teenager, and now she's in a financially secure enough place that she can take a step back and relax. She's got a big fanbase, she's got a solid career, people know her name. She can afford to take a break.
  6. Translation for those interested: Dear Phyllon and Myllena, Did you have a nice day at school? Mom misses you already. After dropping you off at school I went home and pinned a paper to the pinboard about the seasons. So you know when winter arrives and spring and of course the summer! The latter of which Myllena is already looking forward to . But first Phyllon's birthday of course. Right now I'm flying to Los Angeles(LA) and then I will go to Palm Springs by car. You can find it on the map. You'll only have to wait for three days before I'm back! Phyllon, good luck with soccer and Myllena, have a lot of fun swimming. A big kiss from mom. (Note: directly translating from Frysk to English is hard, which is why some of the sentences are clunky. For example, the part about the paper with the seasons, I literally translated that, but I'm not actually sure if she means some kind of calendar or what. I just translated what she wrote).
  7. Those are 10lb plates and sumo deadlifts are one of the easiest deadlift varieties you can perform. Most women barbells weigh 33lb, so Taylor is lifting a total weight of 53lbs (or 24,4kg) here, which is (probably less than) half her bodyweight. Most healthy women of average fitness levels can easily work up to lifting their own bodyweight in a deadlift. For comparison, Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame could already lift 80kg (176lbs) in a deadlift 2 years ago. (might be more now). Not knocking her training, because the goal for models like Taylor is to be toned rather than strong, but yeah, I'm pretty sure all of you could do this pretty easily.
  8. She's super pretty and can pose very well, but her lips look very done to me. Overinflated to the point it's distracting.
  9. Oh yeah I'm not disputing that Jessica had already made a name for herself, but the paparazzi bikini pictures really skyrocketed her popularity. (Though to be honest with her I don't think she posed intentionally; she seemed really uncomfortable with all the attention she got for her looks.) Emily is also pretty well known (though not for the same thing Jessica was up to that point) but the same move from her (which in her case is definitely intentional) is not gonna make an impact because: 1) her body simply isn't that great compared to other hot models and 2) social media these days has basically everyone parading their looks around, so there's a lot more competition.
  10. Agreed. There's a turning point where more does not equal better and she's reached it. Most glamour models look tacky as hell, because all they're selling is sex. But Emily actually photographs really well and her facial features would fit high fashion shoots too. I really don't get why she doesn't utilize that quality more because imo that's what sets her apart. Or could set her apart. Instead she's putting her butt in the air for attention and taking the same damn selfies over and over and over again. It's sad. The whole butt in the air thing worked for Jessica Alba because back then, she basically had the best beach body out of everyone. She jumped on that glute train a decade before it became cool. But Emily, even though she has big boobs, doesn't really have a body that looks better than that of other lingerie and swimsuit models. And her posing for the paps is so blatant, it's off-putting. Well, to me anyway. She sort of cheapens herself, which is completely unnecessary.
  11. She's really pretty but damn, it's obvious she does not have a healthy relationship with food. She's lost way too much weight and the baggy clothes just drive home how thin she's gotten. Even her face is getting gaunt. I really hope someone talks sense into her before she does permanent damage to herself. And blast me for saying this, but I wish she wouldn't book as many campaigns looking the way she does now.

    I don't get why some of you are being so salty about her silliness on IG. She's in her 30's so she has to be serious and "mature" all the time? How different exactly do you guys expect yourselves to be at her age? Because AdultsTM, they're like Santa Claus: only kids believe they actually exist. Anyway, love the new pics and I feel her fashion sense is improving as well. Her outfits seem more put together and that grey coat from the candids is lovely.
  13. She's super pretty like her mom but she's definitely feeling the pressure to be thin. She hasn't been this skinny before and her face looks gaunt. I hope someone is keeping an eye on her.
  14. I don't know any woman who doesn't have them, but as a teen when I first got them (on my back from my growth spurt, on my thighs from filling out, etc) I felt like a freak for having them because no picture in the media shows them. If there's one regret I have of my teenage years/early twenties is that I didn't enjoy my body more. So many girls are made to feel inadequate because we're getting swamped with images of physical perfection. So I hope they stop photoshopping them away, like in Taylor's picture here. She looks no less amazing with them.
  15. That whole Love Advent project creeps me the hell out. All this shit about "strong women" when it's basically fetish. Crawling around in pasta is not sexy. And tay doing that weird backbend in a lace bodysuit. Zooming in on her crotch when she's doing that thing with the gymnastic rings. Like, she looks amazing as always, but cringe.
  16. Sure, in a way you're right. But if you're implying she can never look the way she did before, you're wrong. It takes time for the body to get back to normal after such a taxing thing as a pregnancy. Some people bounce back much quicker than others. Some people's muscles get damaged during the pregnancy and they take time to heal. Etc.

    I think she's been looking really good this year. Some time back she got too thin and it aged her, but these days she looks fresh and radiant again. Also I really like that ^^ outfit on her. She manages to make it look classy instead of trashy.
  18. Man I'm so happy to see her back in the show again. She's been pretty critical of VS and won't take any of their BS so it's pretty awesome to see her back again regardless. She looked amazing.
  19. Never really was a fan, thought she was just another 13-in-a-dozen generic blonde, but wow she proved me wrong. She slayed at this show. I never thought I'd say this but she looked a lot better than Sara Sampaio did this year, whom I always considered to be one of the most beautiful. Elsa did not take a single bad picture.
  20. Poor Sara. She was very bloated while wearing the balmain outfit and it's visible in every single one of those pictures. Probably ate something her body didn't like. I hope that the negativity doesn't affect her position in VS, though I'm sure they'll recognize that shit like this could have happened to anyone, trainers and nutritionists be damned.
  21. I'm not a huge fan of her, but even I have to admit that this year, she was a complete standout. She looks absolutely gorgeous in every picture and her body is on point. Not too thin, not too fit and she seems to have gained a bit on her upper legs, with really gives her body more shape. Whoever is in charge of her diet/training knows what the hell they're doing.
  22. I have a suggestion for the blog landing page of Bellazon, which hasn't been updated with new blog posts since June: Delete it and just keep the forum. The forum has been a place where people come since 2004. The blog doesn't offer anything new and it is very obvious that the people who wrote posts did it because it's a chore, not because they feel particularly passioned about it. The titles could have been plucked from the Daily Mail. The content is just meh. I'm not saying I could do it any better, because I can't. I don't have the energy or the enthusiasm to run a proper, good blog. But neither did the people who ran it. Now it's just this dead thing dragging the site down. Dispose of it before it decomposes or do better.

    That first look was divine. She looks like an angel. But the second look with the red lip is so terrible I'm beginning to wonder if someone is actively sabotaging her. It's like they had the cookie monster do her makeup.

    Wow, she's been looking amazing recently! <3 As for the social media, I'm gonna chime in once because I see this discussion flare up again and again and it's annoying, to be honest. Lima is from before social media became a thing. She hasn't had to deal with it for the majority of her career and she's built her life around the idea that work and her personal life can be separate. I think Adriana genuinely loves modeling, but I also think that when the shoot/job/runway/whatever is done, she just wants to go home and just be able to do other stuff. Social media doesn't allow that. Social media operates on the idea that you want to share every single thing you do with the world. And in modeling today, social media has become a mandatory tool in your own marketing. You can see it with the new VS angels. They're selfie queens. They've been raised that way and it's natural to them to take pictures of themselves all the time. They're also more than a decade younger than Adriana. Cut the woman some slack. Like it or not, she is from a different generation, and using social media isn't natural to her. Or enjoyable, for that matter. She tries to keep up, but when doing so isn't fun to you, it's exhausting. Some of you may be too young to understand a world where internet on your phone was either not possible or ridiculously expensive, but that's the time when Adriana became a supermodel. Some of you were just throwing sand in each other's faces at elementary school back when Adriana was in her early twenties. With technology going as fast as it is, those years make a difference. So please stop whining and complaining about her lack of presence on the social media. For one it is not actually going to make it more inviting for her to change and secondly, she's not up-and-coming anymore. She accomplished everything in modeling. She's basically just riding out the wave for as long as it'll take her. Be happy she still wants to be on it.
