Kate Upton, Megan Fox and Jennifer Lawrence Make Big Modeling Splashes For Summer 2018

Kate Upton LipsyMovie actresses, sports stars, models all make their way, sooner or later, across the fashion stage. In magazines, in video ads or with print we see our brightest and beautiful display those figures and faces they are most well-known for pushing a new designer’s collection, their very own haute couture line or just furthering their career by showing themselves. All of the above is the case with Kate Upton, Megan Fox and Jennifer Lawrence and what they got into this summer of 2018.

Kate Upton shot video and pics for a Lipsy Summer 2018 Campaign. Though now pregnant, Upton’s Lipsy pictures capture her in full sans baby curvy glory. In the video and pictures she models white jeans and a purple and white top, a little black bikini, tight black and white dresses, and a white lingerie set.

Jennifer Lawrence posted pictures just this week of a summer-time shoot she managed for Dior’s new “Joy,” perfume.  As the face of this company for over a half decade, it’s no surprise that the star of the movie Joy (and many other blockbusters) is starring in a short film to push this fashion house’s first new fragrance release in two decades. With dyed platinum tresses, ruby red lipstick and wearing white (and sometimes nothing at all as she shows off in a pool for some moments) the campaign will no doubt be a winner for Lawrence and the brand.

Lastly.

Once again Megan Fox is showing off herself for the greater good…of lingerie. Frederick’s of Hollywood just posted new pictures of the Transformers’ star in some of their lingerie, continuing their relationship with Megan and her Megan Fox Collection.

As we get into the cooler fall air, sweaters and jeans to keep us all warm, let’s not forget bikinis, lingerie and pool-side photo shoots, nor what Megan Fox, Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton gave us for summer 2018.

Is There Really Anything Going On With Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition 2017?

Kate Upton SI 2017The Huffington Post says there is a lot going on with the new Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition 2017. Beyond the fact that model Kate Upton has scored what the industry calls a “three-peat” (meaning she appears as a cover girl for three different covers of the same issue) appearing as cover girl for the 3rd time here. But as many are pointing out Kate isn’t actually sporting a full swimsuit in any of those shots. Upton does ‘wear’ some string strewn together, a bunch of necklaces covering her just right and in her only bikini bottom shot (any cover pic where she is actually an actual bottom) she sports a long sleeved top. 

While Upton defends the Sport Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition 2017 issue by saying “every woman of every age and every body type being accepted. It was inspiring to be asked to be a part of that issue” critics are asking if this ethos plays true here. Why didn’t either woman-of-color star athlete Serena Williams or ‘older’ S.I. stalwart Christie Brinkley (posing with her kids), both inside the issue, land the cover?

Certainly you can’t please all of the people all of the time. When super model Ashley Graham showed her curves as the first BBW lady inside the pages, people asked why she didn’t make the cover. When she did a year later, there were two other covers of same issue featuring two other women (one an over-50 lady and one a woman of color), still there came cries of why full figured Graham couldn’t have a solo shot.

Every year this particular issue hits newsstands and a wide range of critics, from fashionistas to feminists have something to say. From too revealing covers to cries of not even diversity between the pages, the S.I. Swimsuit Issue has survived. the digs against it..as it will this time as well

It seems you just can’t please all swimsuit devotees all of the time.Christie
