I’m Gemma Collins… Get Me Out Of Here!

Out of all the reality TV shows, here at Luxe Models we have to admit, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here has to be one of our favourites.

Luxe Models Love I’m A Celeb

It doesn’t pretend to be anything it’s not. I’m A Celebrity knows they don’t get the biggest household names, but that’s the point really – they get D-list celebs to slum it in the jungle for a month and eat grubs. And guess what, we all love it.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Luxe Models

An Action Packed First Week

So far this year’s I’m a Celeb has been a pretty action-packed affair, with tears, challenges, tragedies and walk-offs - and it hasn’t even been a week yet!

Most noteworthy of this series so far, both TOWIE star Jemma Collins and Red Dwarf actor Craig Charles have already left the jungle, but on very different terms.

All Our Love to Craig Charles and his Family

Actor, comedian and DJ Craig Charles left the I’m A Celeb ‘slammer’ – where some of the troop were locked up on the show – after he received the tragic news that his brother had sadly passed away.

Craig, received the news in Australia, and immediately left camp to head back to the UK to be with his family. We loved watching Craig on I’m A Celeb, but we wish him all the best of luck back home and send our love to him and his family.

The Only Way Is Home

TOWIES’ Gemma Collins also left the camp, but on her own terms, as she described the experience as “really, really traumatic.” Gemma had been struggling with life in the jungle since the get go, having self-diognosed herself with Malaria and suffered the “worst diarrhoea ever.”
She opted to leave the camp after three days, and according to The Mail Online said “It will haunt me for the rest of my life.”

We’ll miss you Gem, get home safe and put your feet up.

Kim Kardashian Succeeds in Her Quest to Break the Internet

Last week, Luxe Models are pretty sure Kim Kardashian succeeded in her quest to break the internet, after she postedsnaps from a photo shoot which emphasised her famous derrière.

The Rise of the Big Booty

Whether you love her or hate her, you cannot deny that Kim Kardashian is a force to be reckoned with. She’s no longer the girl who starred in a sex tape… well no longer just the girl who starred in a sex tape. She’s a veritable A-Lister, with hordes of fans around the world.

Kardashian’s booty meanwhile, has a cult following all of its own. A booty in the true sense of the word, many have said that it’s contributed to the big bum trend that’s reshaping the world of fashion right now. We’re no longer in the late 90’s; skinny butts are out and big, curvaceous booties are well and truly in.

Kardashian Posts Two Internet Changing Snaps

The trend is unlikely to die down any time soon, as Kardashian recently went to extra pains to show off her bum to the world. As part of her goal to ‘break the internet’ (no idea what that even means), Mrs Kanye West took the time last week to post snaps from her photo shoot for the cover of Paper Magazine.

Among the host of pretty graphic pictures, there are two that immediately stick with you. For the first, Kardashian lowers her gown to sit underneath her bum, and show off her back and derrière. In the second, she shows off her best party trick, by balancing a champagne glass on her behind, whilst a stream of the luxurious tipple flows into said glass over her head.

The Internet Went Absolutely Stark Raving Crazy

Astounding. Absolutely, positively astounding. The pictures, whatever you think of the reality TV icon, are a sight to behold. She looks fantastic, glamourous and ready to take on the world. And yes, she certainly succeeded in her mission to break the internet.

Social Media sites practically went into overdrive once the pictures were released. She posted the stills on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, captioning them "and they say I didn't have a talent...try balancing a champagne glass on your ass LOL." Both sites, as well as Facebook, Pinterest etc. preceded to go absolutely stark raving crazy.

You’ve got to Hand it to Kim Kardashian

You’ve got to hand it to Kim Kardashian. She said she’d break the internet and she pretty much did it with nothing but the power of her own behind. That’s impressive for a woman many say doesn’t have an ounce of talent in her entire body!

Taylor Swift Bans Music From Spotify

Swifties including Luxe Models were left severely disappointed last week, when the woman herself decided to ban her music from Spotify.

Swiftie: Fan of Taylor Swift

Yes, Luxe Models are self-proclaimed Swifties and proud of it. For those of you not familiar with the term, it’s a word used to describe fans of pop star Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift Luxe Models Spotify Blog

Originally known for her passionate country music efforts, Swift has steadily been gaining a reputation recently for her ability to craft a killer pop tune. She’s also got a fabulous sense of style, and we worship at her altar. She manages to combine glamour with demureness; something quite rare for the modern pop star, and which we respect.

A Pop Music Heavyweight

Swift’s mission to rebrand herself as a pop music heavyweight stepped up several gears recently with the release of new album 1989, and lead single, ‘Shake It Off.’ As you can imagine, they’ve both sold phenomenally well, and topped various charts across the world.

Which is why it seems odd that Taylor would take any step which could alienate her fans. Nevertheless, it appears that she has taken one, as she has decided to withdraw her tracks frommusic-streaming service Spotify.

Not Willing to contribute Life’s Work to an Experiment

Speaking on the decision to Yahoo News, Swift said that: "All I can say is that music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment.

And I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music. And I just don't agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free.

How Will She Shake That Off?

She kind of makes a valid point. Working in the fashion industry, Luxe Models can’t imagine what would happen if a designer, for example, went unpaid for their art. Nevertheless, as Taylor points out, the music industry is changing, and it just may leave her in the dust. How will she shake that off?

Why You Should Embrace the Constellation Piercing

With everyone and their grandmothers raving about the trend, this week Luxe Models explains why you should embrace the constellation piercing.

One of Fashion’s Hardest Trends

Piercings have always been kind of a hard trend to pull off for your average fashionista. They have floated in and out of style over the last several decades. Never off-trend for long, it’s connotation of teenage rebellion, makes the piercing a perennially popular fashion trend.

And yet, the piercing is perhaps the hardest trend to nail effectively. Get too many, and it can make you look brash, obnoxious and just a little bit weird. It seems like the fashion world has finally taken this on board, as piercing trends are really going subtle at the moment.

The Rise of the Statement Piercing

In the second half of 2014, we’ve moved swiftly away from the statement tattoo, to the statement piercing. This trend was kick-started, of course, by Rihanna, after she unveiled her septum-ring piercing earlier this year. Subsequently, A-Listers and commoners alike have flocked to try it out for themselves.

The trajectory of the trend took a swing towards subtlety at the industry’s latest fashionmonth. Models on catwalks across every fashion capital sported what’s known as the constellation piercing, ensuring that it’s catapulted into the realm of top fashion trend.

What Is the Constellation Piercing and Why Should You Embrace It?

Specifically, the idea involves wearing smaller, often gold or silver earrings in a group of clusters along the bottom of your ear. Celebrities such as Emma Watson, Cara Delevingne, Julianne Moore and Zoe Kravitz have already taken to the look.

That’s all well and good for them, but why should you embrace it? Well, as the Guardian explains in a recent piece on the phenomenon, it’s ‘individuality on an entry-level scale.’ Basically, a constellation piercing allows you to get in touch with your wild-side, without causing a ruckus at work.

For the Professional Woman Who Wants to Look Fabulous at Work

To conclude then, the constellation piercing is more than just the latest trend. It is the perfect style of piercing for the modern professional woman; who wants to look fabulous at work while getting just a little bit rebellious. That is why you should embrace the constellation piercing!
