How Molly Bair Made It Big in Modeling

Meet the new girl…

Model Molly Bair was one of last season’s breakout runway stars and further solidified her success by closing the Chanel Haute Couture show last month. Still, Bair has been subject to a fair amount of criticism based on her unique and unusual look. In an empowering interview with CNN, the model talked about embracing her “alien” vibe, and how she never expected that a “girl who spent most of her childhood with a unibrow…would be in Vogue Italia.” [CNN]

Forever Young…

Musician Neil Young has been selected as the new face of streetwear clothing brand Supreme. Young, who is 69 years old, joins icons Joan Didion and Joni Mitchell, who were also tapped to star in campaigns this season, begging the question: Is ageism in fashion a thing of the past? [Instagram]

Style scalpers…

Scalpers with “fashion industry friends” are selling tickets to coveted fashion week shows for anywhere between $180 and $1,300. One seller, who wished to remain anonymous, said he is doing “Good Samaritan work” by allowing people to access these invite-only events. Our opinion? Save your money and tune in to our live-stream video coverage instead. [Gawker]

The ultimate in haircare…

When it comes to fashion shows, designers stop at nothing to ensure their models strut down the runway in the perfect head-to-toe look. Case in point: the $35,000 worth of hair extensions worn by catwalkers at Donna Karan yesterday. Eugene Souleiman, the hairstylist behind the long locks, admitted, “It’s a lot of weave,” but justified the amount by saying, “But hey, if you want that look, you got to pay.” [Elle]

Saint Laurent shines…

Kering has reported that its fourth-quarter sales beat estimates, primarily due to the high demand for Saint Laurent, whose sales advanced 25 percent. Bottega Veneta and Gucci, who are also under the Kering umbrella, had underwhelming performances, with figures trailing estimates. [Bloomberg]
