Nigel Barker: Champion of the Baby Seal

News flash! We have officially confirmed noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker does in fact have a soul. Also, Tyra might want to practice introducing him as "noted fashion-slash-nature photographer," as we've just learned Barker has embedded with the Humane Society and selflessly flung himself into the cold nether regions of Eastern Canada to photograph fluffy, white baby harp seals.

‘America's Next Top Model’ Renewed!

Karl Lagerfeld Speaks; ‘America's Next Top Model’ Hides Past Winners

Wise words, Karl. [WSJ] • America's Next Top Model is hiding the photos of select winners past in the house. Also, last night's guest judge Paulina Porizkova was amazing. [Jezebel]

Heidi Klum Keeps Scraps of Face Powder in Her Purse

Once upon a time a blogger went to a Victoria's Secret makeup event. And Heidi Klum was there. Yay! And she had some tips on what to do with your face when you're walking the red carpet, which you obviously do every day:

The Fug Girls: Our ANTM All-Star Dream Team

As we watched the parade of sob stories and screeching girls on Wednesday night's premiere of America’s Next Top Model, it got us all misty and nostalgic for the knuckleheads of yore. How much more poetic if Tyra Banks had used her tenth — tenth! — cycle to celebrate the nutjobs who got her there?

Roberto Cavalli, Imminent Reality-TV Star, Be Clubbin'

Roberto Cavalli is on the fast track to becoming fashion's Hugh Hefner: He's often embedded in a throng of hot ladies, and WWD reports today that not only is he opening nightclubs around the world, but Cavalli also has a television show in the works.

‘Fashionista’ Is Casting, and We Want You to Star in It

Tyra Banks's latest reality venture, Fashionista, in which contestants compete to become the next top fashion assistant (oh, the glory of it all!), is currently casting — we submitted our application and have yet to be called upon, sniff, but we hear producers are plucking potential cast members right off New York streets.

Tyra Thrills, Kimora Dolls Give Chills at Baby Phat

There’s nothing like bookending day one with a pair of genuine national treasures: Liza Minnelli at breakfast time, and come supper, that deeply understated legend of Lycra-blend we call Kimora Lee Simmons. Tonight’s Baby Phat show was everything we’ve come to expect from the exceedingly subtle model turned designer, right down to the feathered hot pants, visible garter belts, and getups that felt inspired by Atonement via a few head injuries and maybe a martini.

Nigel Barker Is a Real Photographer, Okay?

Barker
Last night we ran into noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker at Maggie Norris's pre–Fashion Week party, and we're happy to report that the man who can most often be found sitting behind the judge's stand on America's Next Top Model does in fact have legs. We asked him if he was going to be bringing his expert opinion to Tyra's new show, Fashionista, in which women will compete to become assistant editors at Elle. "I was asked to come onboard today!" he said. "I said I'd love to." So what is it going to be like? we asked. Will it be like America's Next Top Model only less pretty, and more passive-aggressive? "I think the fashionistas are going to go out there and realize how hard and how cutthroat and ruthless this industry can be," he said. But won't it be kind of mundane? He waved this away. "People are obsessed with all aspects of this industry," he explained. "It's sexy, it's cool, it's unattainable." Which is why, we guess, none of the Top Models have gone on to become, you know, top models. Speaking of the industry: Doesn't Nigel ever miss being a real-life fashion photographer? Apparently, this hit a nerve. "I shoot all the time," he huffed. "Every day! Yesterday! I'm doing a big David's Bridal campaign, and I just did some stuff for Microsoft. I'm a photographer, that's what I do." But what about, um, fashion? He nodded sagely. "You never see me when I'm taking pictures because I'm on the other side of the lens. Look closely at their eyes, and you'll see my reflection." —Amy Preiser For more up-to-the minute Fashion Week madness, check out New York's new blog: The Cut!
