Khloe Kardashian has jumped to the defence of her younger sister Kendall Jenner after she came under fire for posing for a sexy photo. The 18-year-old model shocked fans on Tuesday (19Nov13) after she shared a snap from a recent shoot in which she bares her breasts.
In the black and white portrait, Jenner's hair is soaking wet and she is wearing a tight, knitted sweater, exposing her nipples.
Along with the photo, she wrote, "Sneak peak of today's shoot with the amazing (photographer Russell James) ... can't wait for you guys to see the rest of the photos!"
The photo prompted a backlash against the the reality TV teen online, with critics slamming Jenner for showing too much at such a young age.
However, Jenner's half-sister Kardashian begged to differ and took to Twitter.com to sing the up-and-coming model's praises.
She wrote, "Gorgeous KendallJenner!!! High fashion! Model your booty off and show them how it's done!!! Major Model Moment!"
Kardashian added, "I love seeing all of these haters' comments. Naomi (Campbell), Kate (Moss), Cindy (Crawford), all fabulous models. Models and photographers take beautiful artistic images. And I don't hear you birds chirp then. Sit down and enjoy the view! Sorry Not Sorry."
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But why imitate when you can innovate? First, America’s Next Drag Superstar Jinkx Monsoon and Ivy Winters created this legendary fantasy recasting of Death Becomes Her. Then Willam Belli appeared in this gay YouTube spoof, “Rambo, But Gay.”
That got the gears turning. What other movies could use a little bit of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent? Here are 10 movies with biological women that could use the full drag race treatment.
10. DreamGirls - This had to be on the list. Latrice Royale is is large, in charge, chunky, yet funky. She’s bold and beautiful so she is a clear fit to play Effie White. Dancing queen Milan is the perfect fit to play sensitive Lorrell Robinson. Tyra Sanchez fancies herself Beyoncé, but she can’t sing. So Deena Jones would have to be played by the America’s first drag superstar, BeBe Zahara Benet.
9. Steel Magnolias - Queen Latifah made an African American version of the popular film. Couldn’t it be possible to have an all Puerto Rican version? Imagine maternal Nina Flowers instead of Sally Field, spunky Carmen Carrera instead of Julia Roberts, Jessica Wild instead of mousy Daryl Hannah, Alexis Mateo and her breast plate instead of Dolly Parton, Madam LaQueer in Olympia Dukakis’ role and finally Yara Sophia giving you Shirley MacLaine realness.
8. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? - They may be old friends, but, Chad Michaels and Shannel would be great at playing feuding sisters Jane (Betty Davis) and Blanche (Joan Crawford).
7. The Craft - There has to be a spooktacular choice for Sharon Needles and Rulaskatox. When innocent Sara (Sharon Needles) moves to town she meets three witches, (Alaska, Detox and Roxxxy Andrews). What follows is black magic, black clothes and really heavy eyeliner.
6. Bring it On: All or Nothing - These queens are most likely to go direct-to-video. But their feud did make the fifth season of the show very entertaining. When Alyssa Edwards family moves and enrolls her in public school she has to join the cheerleading squad run by Coco Montrese. Expect plenty of reading!
5. Mean Girls - When Tatianna moves to a new town she gets on the radar of The Heathers (Raja, Manila Luzon and Delta Work). Her friends Shangela and Stacy Layne Matthews convince her to play both sides and take them down.
4. Big Business - Manila Luzon and Jujubee play two sets of twins in a remake of this Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin Classic.
3. Nine to Five - Pandora Boxx plays spunky Doralee Rhodes (Parton), Ivy Winters plays sweet-as-pie Judy Bernley (Jane Fonda) and Raven plays snarky Violet Newstead (Tomlin).
2. She-Devil - After an actress (Willam Belli) ruins her life, a jilted housewife (Mimi Imfurst) plans her destruction. With the help of a pint-sized friend (Kenya Michels) they get their revenge.
1. Troop Beverly Hills - All the Drag Race girls could star in a remake of this popular 90s. It'd be great, if only, to see them do a drag rendition of " It's Cookie Time." Clearly, Mama Ru would play Shelly Long's part.
Who would you love to see in a movie remake?
When the internet gets buzzing about one particular star, you can't help but hit up Google to try to figure out who the person is, where they came from, and why you should be obsessed with them. Supermodel Cara Delevingne started out as yet another -- albeit striking -- face on the catwalk. Modeling for the likes of Chanel and Burberry she made a name for herself at a young age. But if you've ever stumbled across her IMDB page, or spent hours Instagram-stalking her, you know what all the fuss is about. And no, it's not just those signature eyebrows! Let's get to know this chick once and for all.
She's BFFs With Rihanna
Spend five minutes on Rihanna's Instagram account and you'll be bombarded with images of her and Cara out and about, having more fun than (seemingly) anyone else. The same can be said for Delevingne's account. These two are truly best friends, which makes sense as they both have mastered the art of developing a kind of bad girl, #givesnof**ks attitude that only a supermodel and a pop star can really get away with.
Along with that bad-girl image comes with a real desire to destroy any pretty-girl image she might have garnered. Those super-thick, dark eyebrows help with that, but Delevingne's Instagram is full of screw-faces and weirdness, lest we confuse her with an emotion-less, boring supermodel.
Tyra Banks Considers Her To Be An Icon
A little while back the iconic Tyra Banks released a brilliant series of photos in which she posed as some of her favorite supermodels of all time (Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford included). The photo of her in Cara Delevingne-face was probably one of the most popular of the series, and definitely got folks excited about the young British model.
She's On Her Way To Becoming A Legitimate Actress
One little-known fact about Delevingne is that she actually had a small but significant role in the 2012 Oscar-winning film Anna Karenina. Delevingne played the marriage interest of Aaron Johnson's Count Vronsky, and she was absolutely gorgeous on screen. She's now making a serious break into acting, having expressed some interest in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and now filming Kids In Love. We can all expect to see more of this beauty both on the catwalk and on the big screen.

George Clooney and his business partner Rande Gerber have opened the doors to their side-by-side Mexican retreats for a new Architectural Digest spread. The two pals live right next door to each other in Los Cabos on the Baja peninsula and Gerber, who is married to Cindy Crawford, tells the publication he and Clooney have been vacationing there for 20 years.
In fact, the two friends used to hang out at the beach long before their holiday homes we built.
He says, "We saw this oceanfront lot and thought maybe it would make sense to build something."
Crawford adds, "Once we had kids, we would go on vacation at Christmas, but you'd have to book hotels a year in advance, and then you'd get there and they never quite lived up to expectations."
The trio initially dreamed up the idea of building one big compound, but came to the conclusion it would be better to have their own pads.
Gerber explains, "It's just nice at the end of the night to have your own place to go back to."
The sprawling homes feature airy, outdoor dining areas, sparkling pools, terraces, a home theatre and beautiful bedrooms all with views of the ocean.
Clooney tells Architecture Digest he allowed his friend to lead the design of the two places because he trusts Gerber's taste, adding, "Rande has this amazing eye for houses and style."
Hollywood star Richard Gere has split from his actress wife Carey Lowell, according to a U.S. report. The Pretty Woman star has separated from his spouse of 11 years, former Bond girl and Law & Order regular Lowell, and is moving forward with plans for a divorce, reports New York Post gossip column Page Six.
A source tells the publication the stars, who have a 13-year-old son called Homer, have been "spending time apart for quite some time".
Gere, 64, was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford, while Lowell, 52, has been wed twice before.
A representative for the couple has yet to comment.
"Louis is not like any other kid. He looks you in the eye and he's a dude... and when Louis decided it was time to have some man-time with George and Rande, he said he'd let me know. I was like, 'Dear God, just do not bring Cindy Crawford around, because if you do I will lose my son'." Sandra Bullock begged Gravity co-star George Clooney and his best pal Rande Gerber not to invite Gerber's wife to the set when her women-loving son was hanging out with them.
Annie star Lilla Crawford is to make her feature film debut as Little Red Riding Hood in director Rob Marshall's retelling of stage hit Into The Woods. It was believed that British Internet sensation and TV regular Sophia Grace had landed the role, but now insiders insist child star Crawford will portray the wolf whistleblower in the movie musical.
Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine are among the big names who have been cast in the ambitious project, which is scheduled for release next Christmas (14).
Ever since George Michael cast the likes of Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington in the video for "Freedom '90," supermodels have become synonymous with the pop world. But some Vogue cover stars have wanted to be more than just the glamorous eye candy in a music promo. Here's a look at five who have temporarily swapped the catwalk for the recording studio.
The latest supermodel to try her hand at the whole singing malarkey, former Victoria's Secret Angel Gisele Bundchen made headlines last week after recording a cover of The Kinks' '60s Britpop classic "All Day & All Of The Night" for a new H&M ad campaign. While Shakira's status as Latin America's premier pop diva is unlikely to come under threat, the 33-year-old’s enchanting Brazilian accent and seductive husky tones at least ensure that you won't have to turn down the volume every time the advert appears on TV.
Featuring production work from the likes of Youth (Paul McCartney, The Verve), Bomb The Bass' Tim Simenon and Irish singer-songwriter Gavin Friday, Naomi Campbell's 1994 venture into the music world, Babywoman, certainly arrived with some impressive credentials. But the serial cell phone thrower still failed to tempt anyone to buy it and after spending just a solitary week inside the UK Top 75, it's rarely been heard of since. However, ignore Campbell's wafer-thin vocals and the brooding tribal pop of "Love & Tears" is actually not that bad at all.
Something of an indie-rock fangirl, the face of 1990s heroin chic has performed on tracks by Primal Scream ("Some Velvet Morning") and The Lemonheads ("You’re A Dirty Robot"), played tambourine on Oasis' Be Here Now and co-wrote four tracks with crack-addled one-time boyfriend Pete Doherty for Babyshambles' sophomore disc, Shotter’s Nation. But she's yet to produce anything which suggests she should give up the day job.
Disillusioned with the fashion industry, one of the newly-crowned supermodels decided to follow in the footsteps of Moss by hooking up with a British guitar band in the shape of Five O'Clock Heroes for "Who," the first single from their 2008 second album, Speak Your Language. Deyn's girlish tones aren't without their charms, but unfortunately the track itself was the kind of plodding indie-rock you'd expect to hear on a wet Wednesday night down the local pub.
Another supermodel who tested her vocal skills for the purposes of a TV advert, Heidi Klum was given the job of tackling Bee Gees' disco classic "Stayin' Alive" whilst parading around in a pair of Jordache jeans earlier this year. Her karaoke-style rendition suggests that little of former husband Seal's musical talent rubbed off on her.

British pop star Harry Styles served up a treat for Cindy Crawford's kids over the weekend (07-08Sep13) by making pizzas with them after striking up an unlikely friendship. The One Direction hunk recently met the supermodel's son, Presley, through mutual pals and he stopped by his new friend's Southern California home on Sunday (08Sep13) to cheer the teen up as he recovered from surgery on his tonsils.
The 14 year old later posted a Twitter.com photo of Styles and his friends posing in the kitchen, alongside the caption, "Thanks for stopping by the house again and helping the boys and I make our pizzas @harrystyles."
Responding to the message, Styles, who worked in a bakery before shooting to fame, tweeted back, "Anytime brother. See you for surfing soon."
Crawford's 12-year-old daughter Kaia also took part in the food fun, and shared her own snaps with the What Makes You Beautiful singer on her Instagram.com page.
Styles, 19, was previously spotted at Crawford's home late last month (Aug13).
Model-turned-reality TV star Tyra Banks has undergone a series of drastic transformations to pose as 15 of the world's most famous supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and Claudia Schiffer. The America's Next Top Model host has donned a brunette wig and a well-placed facial mole to portray Cindy Crawford, and she is seen sporting a baseball cap and a sneer while posing as British newcomer Cara Delevingne.
She has also recreated the looks of Moss and Schiffer, as well as Linda Evangelista, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, Twiggy and Brooke Shields.
The 15 project was launched in connection with New York Fashion Week this month (Sep13) and the pictures will be exhibited in New York City until November (13).
Banks has been posting some of the images on her Twitter.com feed, and has won the praise of Crawford, who branded the shots "fierce & amazing", adding, "Work it. Love it. Tyra 15."
