Male Mondays: David Gandy

Male Mondays: David Gandy

Male Mondays – thanks to the user who suggested the name!

At high request, male supermodel David Gandy!

Age: 36

Nationality: British

Height: 192 cm / 6’3”

David on his male supermodel diet:

“The right amount of water, the right foods – not crappy, fatty processed foods. It’s everything in moderation, you can eat too much fish or too much meat. I actually had mercury poisoning from tuna because it topped off the levels in my body and made me quite ill.

People say to me, ‘my God, you must not eat something’, and then, ‘good God, you’re eating cake’. I probably eat more than most people think I might, but I’m actually a foodie and I eat a lot. I just stay away from processed foods – white pastas, white carbohydrates, high sugar content, saturated fat – but I can still eat so much because of that. People [unnecessarily] go to the extremities of something.”

 

Khloe Kardashian Felt Fat-Shamed in Stores That Didn’t Carry Her Size

Khloe Kardashian Felt Fat-Shamed in Stores That Didn’t Carry Her Size

Khloe Kardashian recently launched a denim collection for sizes 0 to 24 and the reality star says that she decided to do so partially because she used to feel fat-shamed in stored that didn’t carry her size. Here are more details from People Magazine:

When I was bigger, a lot of places didn’t carry my size,” Khloé shares in an exclusive interview in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “I was a 30 or 31 at the time. I didn’t think that was astronomical sizing but people went, ‘Uh! What size are you? Oh we don’t have that here but we can order it.’ I was like, ‘Screw you, you just made me feel like s—.’ And that’s how a lot of women feel. My sisters would wear cute denim, and I felt so fat-shamed.

Introducing NEW SVC Men: First Plus-Size Male Model Zach Miko

are-there-plus-size-male-models

That’s right: from now on (as a result of many requests over the years), Skinny VS Curvy will feature, besides women and their wide range of body shapes and body image issues, MEN!

And here we are, launching our new category with the first plus-size male model – Zach Miko, who was signed a few months back with ING Models, modeled for Target and became the image of a ‘brawn’ model or the equivalent of ‘curve’ for women. Zach’s stats:

Age: 26

Height: 6ft 6in / 198cm

Waist: 40in / 102cm

On how society views men who have body image issues as un-masculine:

I always had my own body-image struggle. With men, there is still a lot of bravado and false masculinity to get through. You’re not supposed to care about how you look. If you have issues, you aren’t supposed to talk about it. It’s considered weak or un-masculine. Which is stupid. It’s about having feelings that make you human. I think, even now with the progression, you still have that 1950s male mentality of men being strong and emotionless. If it makes men realise that it’s OK to care about how you look, or even feel bad about it and want to change … I have had [body] issues all my life and that can make you insecure. You project those feelings on to others and that can damage relationships. It creates this vicious cycle. It could all be avoided if you opened up and said I do or don’t feel good about myself.

On the cause of his insecurities and trying to make people feel good about themselves:

I was between diets and trying to change the way I look for so long. As an actor, I was told by every casting director that I was too big. But I think I was trying to make other people more comfortable. I have always been a big guy, I was picked on as a kid, and that’s where it came from. We live in a society where “big” and “fat” have become insults, and “skinny”, “little” and “petite” have become compliments. We have come to correlate a negative meaning with “big” and “fat”.

On the fact that plus0sized people can be healthy:

I am a big advocate of health. I just don’t think you have to be a twig to [be healthy]. Other people don’t have a right to project an idea of unhealthy on to you if you have this extra weight. I think labeling people as unhealthy is unfair. You don’t know what their health is. People think I’m a slob and that I don’t take care of myself. But I do. For starters, I cycle every day. But you do start to internalize that [feeling].

… says Zach.

Victoria’s Secret Model Jasmine Tookes Will Wear the Fantasy Bra This Year

Victoria’s Secret Model Jasmine Tookes Will Wear the Fantasy Bra This Year

fantasy-bra-3

25 year-old Victoria’s Secret beauty Jasmine Tookes will be the very happy wearer of the brand’s $3 million Fantasy Bra at their runway show in December.

Her thoughts on being selected to wear the Fantasy Bra:

I had no idea that I was going to be chosen to wear the Bright Night Fantasy Bra. It was such a surprise to me. I don’t know how they chose, but I am so honored to have this opportunity, and be able to walk down the runway with this beautiful thing.

I have known for five months, and I literally had to keep my mouth taped shut. I mean the only girls that knew were Taylor [Hill], Romee [Strijd], and Josephine Skriver because they were there the day of the surprise. I think it was the hardest for Taylor to keep her mouth shut because she is like a wild child.

… says Jasmine.

Check out her reaction at finding the news!

Gigi Hadid on Her Runway Walk: “Obviously I’m not the best”

gigi-hadid-legs-runway

Gigi Hadid has transformed herself in the past years from a bubbly and more athletic-looking model that mostly did sexy photo-shoots to a high-fashion, much skinnier model. And this week, the blonde beauty opened up about her runway walk and how it definitely needs work.

On her career as a runway model:

Before I started modeling, I was more into photographers. I studied a lot how models made pictures in the sense that you have to be a positive part of a picture and make it better. And that’s what is really important for me on set. There’s some people that are bad at looking at monitors and some people that are good looking at monitors. And monitors really help me because I’m able to look at a picture and see where I fit into it, see what I can add to the picture instead of just being a person that’s on the page.

“But the runway thing, it’s funny because obviously I’m not the best on the runway. But what do you do? When you’re the face of a brand you show up to the show. My first show people were already expecting a lot more from me than I [was capable of at the time]. I never was taught how to walk on the runway. And maybe that’s because it moved really quickly for me, that people just assumed that that was something I knew. So, you know, a year and a half later, I’m still learning. I got some compliments on my Tom Ford show, so I’m getting better. I’m working on it, but I’m human. I still get insecure on the runway, but it’s really exciting for me because I want to get better. I love being on the runway.

… says Gigi.

Kylie Jenner Talks Cheek and Jaw Surgery

Kylie Jenner Talks Cheek and Jaw Surgery

cheek-surgery-kylie-jenner-5

Kylie Jenner is one of those celebs who loves to talk about beauty-related topics, as well as answer her fans’ plastic surgeries questions and inquiries (although occasionally denying her own procedures at first). Recently, the reality star opened up about dealing with yet another rumor: that she got jaw and cheek surgery.

On whether she considers Kim the hottest sister:

I don’t try to compete with Kim to be the hottest sister. I mean I think all my sisters are hot, but Kim’s got the crown, Kim’s so cute and sexy. I never compete with my sisters.

On the rumors that she had jaw and cheek surgery:

No I didn’t [have cheek surgery]. People started saying that when I was 16. You really think Kris Jenner would let a 16 year old me have cheek and jaw reconstructive surgery? No!

On whether the haters got to her:

I always used to love my jaw. I was never self-conscious about my jaw, but before I got my lips done, my lips were very tiny and more like sunken into my chin. Someone made a meme of me on the internet of me that I was the Crimson Chin. And me and [my friend] Stas have been laughing about it for about six years. But now that I have big-ass lips, it looks normal.

… says Kylie.

Gigi Hadid’s Pouty Lips Do Vogue Japan

Gigi Hadid’s Pouty Lips Do Vogue Japan

Gigi Hadid continues to be everywhere these days, as per usual in the past2 years – and where exactly is she this week? On the cover of Vogue Japan, together with her very pouty lips.

‘One of my favorite cover stories!’

… said Gigi of this feature while sharing tons of snaps from it on Instagram.

The half Dutch, half Palestinian-American stunner sports cool urban fall-ready outfits that occasionally forgo the pants… or the top, or the bra. And in order to look like a model, Gigi has a simple philosophy:

You find how you feel your best. Whether you feel better when you’re eating gluten-free or whatever it is. I feel better when I eat a burger every other night. Eat clean, and work out to stay fit – and have a burger to stay sane.

Throwback to Gigi wearing hot pink pants HERE!

Browse through our gallery featuring Gigi and her very pouty lips and share your thoughts!
