Gwyneth Paltrow's selfies are all about the hats, not so much with the makeup

Gwyneth Paltrow selfie

Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be sharing an au naturel look this summer when it comes to selfies. Refreshingly, the actress and mother is putting down the makeup artist's number and picking up hats to accessorize her selfies. 

Three weeks ago, Paltrow shared her American pride on Independence Day by displaying an American Flag had and big black sunglasses. Looking like she'd just come off the beach with family on the big weekend, Gwyneth sported wet hair, a smile on her face and a healthy glow. 

Three days ago, Gwyneth Paltrow once again returned to Instagram to share yet another look at a stylish hat moment, only this time she had switched beach for buffalo. The selfie was shot out West and shows Paltrow wearing a cowboy hat and, what appears to be, zero makeup. 

Seems these days it's all about the makeup-less selfies when it comes to celebs. The cynical side of my brain tells me this is a whole ploy to say "we're just like you" and gain the public's trust. But then again, maybe certain celebs really do just feel like sharing the "real them." An interesting argument to be made on both sides, if looking at it from a self-promotion angle.

The 2015 Pirelli Calendar will feature a Plus-Size Model


The Pirelli Calendar returns for 2015 and it seems there are a few surprises up the sleeves of photographer Steven Meisel and stylist Carine Roitfeld. There are 12 models featured in the calendar, as expected so, no surprises there. However, there are a few casting surprises.

First of all, Gigi Hadid is starring in the calendar for the first time. You'll know her as the daughter of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Yolanda Foster. Gigi has also landed a massive gig as a face of Tom Ford this year. The youngster is on a roll and we're sure this is only the beginning. 

Now, the big news is the tidbit we've left for last. For the first time in the calendar's 50 years of existence, The Pirelli Calendar will feature a Plus Size Model. Candice Huffine has the honour of being the first calendar girl who isn't a "straight sized" lady. WWD released a first look at the model in action last week and we're wondering why it took Pirelli so long to embrace curves. Looks good, no scratch that, looks great.

Congrats, Gigi and Candice on your new role as part of the Pirelli family. 

Burger Selfies, yes, this is happening

Burger Selfie

Just when you think Selfies can't get any stranger, a brand decides to go and take it to the next level. 

Hellman's Mayonnaise recently created a BBQ lab with a machine capable of putting your selfie, using mayonnaise, on your burger. No, this is no April Fools, and yes, I am very upset to have missed the opportunity to eat my own image in mayo on my favourite food... a burger. 

So how does it all work? Well, the man taking your order at the food truck snaps a pic on his iPhone. Said picture is uploaded to a computer which tells a robotic arm to create an image similar to what it has received... or something like that. What's the point in explaining here? Just watch this Burger Selfie moment brought to you by Hellman's Mayonnaise. Brilliant, just brilliant. What's next? Hot Dog full body selfies with ketchup?

First Look: Cara Delevingne for Topshop Autumn Winter 2014

Cara Delevingne Topshop campaign

It was announced some months ago that Cara Delevingne was stepping up to the plate to model for Topshop this season, and now we have a first look at the campaign. Today, Topshop will begin releasing images of Cara's moment with the brand. WWD was the first to release the image above, showcasing Cara Delevingne in Topshop while strumming an acoustic guitar. Shot by photographer Alasdair McLellan, Cara looks right at home in the easy jeans and blazer ensemble. No doubt we'll have more to share later in the day. Keep an eye out!
