Naomi Campbell has many jobs: She’s a television personality, an activist,an entrepreneur and, of course, a model. She has many talents, but twerking — you know, dropping it like it’s hot — isn’t one of them. This was just one of several revelations during a recent Town Hall Q&A with Campbell held at SiriusXM in New York City with designer Diane von Furtstenberg firing questions as moderator. EW was on the scene — and walked away with a few “no way, really?” discoveries about the British supermodel: READ FULL STORY

Sarah Jessica Parker may just go to a shoe store today and wistfully exclaim, “Hello, Loverrrrr!” at a pair of strappy stilettos. Only this time, they’ll be her own creation.
The once and future Carrie Bradshaw’s inevitable shoe line, SJP, hits Nordstrom this week. The shoes are designed with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik, and run in the $300 range.
The actress spoke with the Associated Press about the project and explained why now — 10 years after the show ended its original HBO run — was the right time to get into the shoe business. “I was very kindly being offered a lot of opportunities in the shoe category and I kept rejecting them,” Parker explained. “And I couldn’t figure out why. … And I was sitting with some women friends of mine and they said to me, ‘What is it?’ And I said, ‘Well, I know it’s not going to be the shoe that I want it to be.’ And I said that really my dream partner is George Malkemus. And they said, ‘Have you asked him?'” READ FULL STORY
A familiar face popped up on Face Off this week. Former judge Patrick Tatopoulos–a production designer for Pitch Black, Underworld, and Independence Day–stopped by for a motorcycle themed Foundation Challenge. The group was tasked with creating an original motorcycle racer based on the colorful vehicles that filled the room. The group excitedly got to work… and eventually the verdict was in. Tatopoulos ultimately chose Tanner White and Daran Holt as his top two favorites. However, there could only be one winner. Holt’s expertly executed creation wound up taking home top prize–immunity for this week’s the Spotlight Challenge.
From there, it was onto the main event where host McKenzie Westmore and judge Glenn Hetrick announced that the artists would work in pairs of their own choosing in order to create their own original rockstar. Using various electric guitars that filled the room, the group was prompted to create a musician that echoed the vibe of the guitar they selected.
The pairings included: Corinne Foster and Graham Schofield, George Schminky and Daran Holt, Tanner White and Chloe Sens, Cat Paschen and Niko Gonzalez, Rashaad Santiago and Tyler Green, and Tess Laeh and Matt Silva. Minor drama ensued, but nothing that couldn’t be overcome. That’s excluding Laeh and Silva who had their work cut out for them. The duo had decided upon a rockabilly themed goat, but mentor Michael Westmore pointed out that their creation’s face didn’t really echo its concept. Upon hearing this, Laeh had a minor meltdown and could hardly be consoled. Silva initially gave her space, but–with limited time–the two eventually got back to work.
Judgement day came all too soon. Schminky and Holt and Santiago and Green’s creations wound up in the top, with Holt–no immunity win necessary–being named winner for his creation’s “fascinating head.” Meanwhile, White and Sens and Silva and Laeh found themselves in the bottom. Ultimately only Laeh was sent home for her part in a make-up which the judges said “lacked complexity.”
EW caught up with Laeh about what it was like being a part of the show, what she would have done differently in her challenge, and what she’s been working on since filming wrapped.
“Murder is the new black.”
So says Castle (Nathan Fillion) when he and Beckett (Stana Katic) investigate the death of an assistant at Modern Fashion magazine on tonight’s episode, fittingly titled “Dressed to Kill.”
Is Modern Fashion editrix Matilda King (Frances Fisher) — a blunt bobbed ice queen who bears a resemblance to Vogue‘s Anna Wintour, the real-life inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada‘s Miranda Priestly — the prime suspect, or is she bride-to-be Beckett’s fashion fairy godmother?
A former teen model, Beckett finds it easy to infiltrate the fashion industry and by the time the hour is up, not only has she caught the killer, she’s found her dream wedding dress.

It wasn’t exactly a thrilling game, but Super Bowl XLVIII delivered plenty of style highlights.
From Bruno’s flashy suit to Joe Namath’s furry coat, let’s count down the top five Super Bowl fashion moments.
5. Bruno Mars and co. in custom Saint Laurent
For the halftime show, Bruno and his band wore custom suits from Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane, who is known for dressing rock stars like Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk. For some, the gold slim-fit blazers were more Broadway — think Jersey Boys – than badass.
A near-identical Saint Laurent jacket is available — on sale! — at Bergdorf Goodman.
On the season finale of American Horror Story: Coven, Myrtle Snow (Francis Conroy) walked into the desert in a flowing floor-length crimson dress, presented herself at the stake, and cried out “Balenciaga!” before going up in flames.
We know why Myrtle’s last word was Balenciaga, but was the dress she was wearing when she met her demise from the French fashion label?
We asked AHS costume designer Lou Eyrich to tell us what Myrtle wore — and why it wasn’t Balenciaga — and the significance of her final frock. Read on for the answers.
American Horror Story: Coven wasn’t just packed with (gory) plot twists, there were also plenty of sartorial surprises.
“This season [series creator Ryan Murphy] wanted each character to have an iconic look,” AHS costume designer Lou Eyrich told EW. “I had not done a television series on location before, so [I had to] get to know a new city and where to find the things I’d need for an 1830s flashback or a Salem witch hunt. Where do you find stylized witch wear in New Orleans?”
Characters like Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) got to slip into labels like Givenchy, Gucci, Lanvin, and Prada but it was Myrtle Snow who channeled Murphy’s personal fashion favorites.
“I love all that stuff. I was like, ‘Let’s write a monologue and I can put all my obsessions in,'” Murphy said of Myrtle’s episode 11 monologue, which included references to stylish socialite Lee Radziwill and iconic designer Diane Von Furstenberg.

ToddleWood is back!
All of the Grammys good, bad, and WTF? fashion moments — Madonna’s pimp cane, Pharrell’s hat, Paula Patton’s rabid zebra-print dress to name just a few — have been immortalized in kid-size glamor shots.
Founded by former advertising executive-turned-photographer Tricia Messeroux, the photo project imagines everyday kids as A-list celebrities, historic figures, and more recognizable icons. The idea was born in 2008, when Messeroux decided to shoot her then-three year old daughter, Skylar.
“My process now is to think about what the look that I want to achieve is, so it needs to be an iconic celebrity or a political figure or someone notable, or a moment in time,” Messeroux told EW last year. “The Grammys have some of the most outrageous outfits, which for someone like, me is exciting.”

The season finale of American Horror Story: Coven featured one of the most stylish death scenes in the history of television.
Accompanied by two men who bore more than a passing resemblance to fashion industry icon Karl Lagerfeld, Myrtle Snow (Francis Conroy) walked into the desert — wearing a flowing floor-length crimson dress — presented herself at the stake, and cried out “Balenciaga!” before becoming engulfed in flames.
