Gigi Hadid walked the Anna Sui show at NYFW last night with one shoe. If this were an episode of America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks would give a speech about how Gigi exhibited bravery, courage, professionalism and a true model spirit by powering through her wardrobe malfunction. Full Story

Just in case you forgot, Sasha used to be Tara Reid’s personal assistant. She doesn’t talk about it like it was a career highlight. But one of the highlights of my life is hearing her talk about all the bullsh-t that she had to deal with when she was managing Tara Reid’s life. I haven’t seen Sasha yet today because we are all over the place covering TIFF, on different assignments. Full Story
