    As one of the fashion industry’s most in-demand faces, the Danish beauty wants to use her platform to voice her support of gay rights.

    Via: Courtesy of The Society Model Management

    BuzzFeed Fashion's "How I Made It in Fashion" series takes an in-depth look at how the industry's stars got to where they are. Below, model Josephine Skriver talks about her rise from diaper model to runway star — and how her gay parents made all her success possible.

    I'm from Denmark. My mom is gay and she was single, but she wanted kids. She wanted me to be able to have a dad. So we had this magazine called Pan-bladet in Denmark, which is for the community of gay people, so she posted an ad in the personals where she asked, "Are there any gay couples or gay guys out there who wish to be a dad? Because I'm a single mom and I wanted to have kids." Five guys replied, and she really ended up liking my dad, and shortly after that they made me. And everything was kind of meant to be, and it's kind of funny — my life started in a magazine and now all I do is appear in magazines.

    I have a younger brother who's 13 now — same mom, same dad. My dad married a guy, which was really nice. I grew up with him until I was about 6, but then they split but we're still really close — he's like my uncle. He's still there every Christmas so it still feels like a big family because there are so many people there.

    I definitely think it has been a lot easier for me coming from Denmark because people are not as judgmental [as in the U.S.]. But when I was born, [having gay parents] wasn't so normal. My mom always said, "You have to be really open about it, it's important not to hide who you are, because as soon as you are embarrassed about something people are going to mock you about that." So in school I never really got teased. I've heard a lot of other people say, "I like you, and your parents are fine, but I still don't like gay people — like, other gay people, I don't know." Maybe you grew up in a family where you just don't know what gay people are [like], and what you don't know might be scary to you.

    Skriver at New York's gay pride parade with some adorable nail art.

    It's always been me that's dragged my parents to the gay pride parade because I've always been so proud of them. We call ourselves "rainbow kids." I was always just so proud. And every time I see people nowadays speak up for [gay rights], I feel like we're getting there. I still feel like there's a lot of fighting against it. But they always focus on the kids, I feel. Like, "Oh, it's going to be bad for [gay people] to have kids." Or, "They're gonna make more gays." First of all for me, that wouldn't be so bad, but second of all, I want to be the voice for the kids because it's really not that bad. You're sure your parents love you, because they really, really wanted you in the first place. Gay people having a baby — it's never just, "Whoops!" It's amazing to get where I am now, as a model, and actually be able to raise my voice.

    My mom was always the tomboy who played soccer, my dad was more the art guy, and he taught me about music and the arts. My aunt was always more fashion — she worked [as a fashion consultant]. She had a lot of friends who were in fashion, so from a very young age, I did jobs for friends.

    My first ever catwalk, I could barely walk. It was in the mall. It was not like I was with an agency or anything. I did ads for some diaper brands and stuff but then I was, I think 5 or 6, and I had to shoot with this guy and I was like, "No, no more, mom," and she said, "OK, of course — if you don't want to do it anymore, you don't have to."

    Ford’s alliance with two of the biggest pop stars of our time probably stems from more than simple mutual admiration. Could money be on the line?

    Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z performing at the Grammys.

    Via: The Associated Press / AP

    Tom Ford and Jay-Z have formed the latest alliance to elicit the breathless enthusiasm of fashion press, and it seemingly goes deeper than one making a suit for the other.

    Jay-Z's latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail includes a song called "Tom Ford," with a chorus that goes, bluntly and uncreatively, "Tom Ford, Tom Ford, Tom Ford." The track is a cheer for Ford, a celebration of Jay-Z, and a rejection of commonplace internet technology. "Fuck hashtags and retweets," raps Jay-Z, who gave an advanced look at his album only to Samsung mobile users. Ford, who is not on Twitter and wouldn't even allow online press to attend his womenswear show until its fifth season debuted this February, would surely agree. These two — and their famous penchant for temporarily barricading their creative work — were made for each other.

    Ford is enjoying an unusually great spate of press through two of music's leading male performers so far this year. He also partnered with Justin Timberlake on "Suit and Tie," creating clothes for Timberlake to wear in the single's video and accompanying artwork. He dressed the former boy bander for the Grammys and subsequent press ops. The alliance, announced in Women's Wear Daily in January, led the New York Times to recently call Timberlake "in certain ways a Ford creation, right down to the modified pompadour" — a straighter style, which Ford, unlike many Timberlake fans, prefers to his natural curls.

    That makeover made possible by Ford was key to Timberlake's transformation into an upscale pop star, proffering music as classy as his new self. Jay-Z might not need to build his new album on a physical makeover, but his image revolves around living the high life, which is exactly what Ford sells. This mass marketing is seemingly at odds with the Tom Ford brand. Ford built his namesake label on the premise of unabashed luxury — $990 jeans, tuxes championed by celebrities that cost well into the thousands of dollars, and eventually, a surprise secret showing of his first namesake womenswear collection that banned press and boasted Beyoncé as a model.

    "I'm holding everything back, controlling all the photography," Ford, who only allowed Terry Richardson and his team of six to shoot that collection, told WWD. Determined to stick it to the current system, he didn't allow the photos to go online until December. He openly shunned fashion reviews and celebrity endorsements. "The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness," is how Ford justified his methods in that same WWD story. Well, what could be more overexposing than being the subject of an entire Jay-Z song? Or being apparently responsible for the much celebrated makeover of one of the most famous pop stars of our time? With these relationships, Ford's latest statement couldn't be less subtle: His brand is going to be the pop star of the luxury world — his creative work will be the most sought after, the most important, the most celebrated, the most anticipated.

    Tom Ford tux.

    When Ford debuted womenswear in 2010, he emphasized that the collection would be small. Tom Ford stores would sell the first collection exclusively. The second would go to his stores along with Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and specialty retailers. As annoying and pompous as his secrecy was, it was necessary. These are not clothes many people in the world can afford, and they needed to be scarce enough to feel as precious as Ford and his ardent fans deemed them. Also quite significantly, his strategy placed him at the very opposite end of the spectrum of H&M, a collaboration with whom he's openly rejected. "What excites me is the very best," Ford said at a talk last year. "And that tends to cost money … I want to design for people who get excited about the same things I do." While many brands have launched lower-end, more affordable lines in recent years, Ford refused to follow suit.

    But there's a reason so many high-end brands made that rush to the middle. Building a luxury brand is notoriously difficult. Many designers, even those as celebrated as Proenza Schouler and Thom Browne, can struggle with financing for years and years after attaining critical success. The nature of the work of a designer has changed with the rise of the internet too. They must broadcast next season's trends to the world on the internet, but that only enables fast-fashion brands to knock designers off before their wares even make it to stores. Now that everyone's designs are knocked off, designers have to sell much more than an of-the-moment look — above all, they have to sell a lifestyle, a look and feel of luxury you can't buy at Zara. Yet they also have to be mass enough for people to know your name and that it's worth something. By collaborating with fast-fashion chains, designers get the exposure a big name can offer while still being able to monetize their creativity, even if a watered-down version of it. It's not unlike the relationship musical artists have with big corporations, who sponsor the tours they need to make money in the face of the internet's assault on album sales. Most artists, like most designers, have come to terms with this. Just as Beyoncé isn't afraid of commercialism (hello, Pepsi commercial), neither is Ford, who has repeatedly stated commercial clothes are part of his design philosophy. His work may be precious, but he doesn't want his clothes to be so precious that they look like they belong in a museum (think Alexander McQueen).

Let's say that when the duchess goes into labor, Kim gets hip to the grim reality that there is a famous baby out there more famous/important than her own, and to attempt to alter said grim reality, she does something CRAZY like tweet a photo of her wee one thereby funneling attention away from the royal baby and back to Baby NW. So bask in the Kardashians' diminished importance while you can. Like summer and cupcakes, it promises to be fleeting.

JUST TRY TO STAY AWAKE OVER AT THAT SITE, is what I'm trying to say. Come the deliverance of the royal baby, that URL will be nothing but fascinating.

    Details on everything from the bed William might get to sleep in to the food Kate might eat. It’s all so exciting and boring at the same time!

    Kate Middleton is reportedly due to go into labor this Saturday, July 13. How convenient for everyone's schedules! We can all just plan to spend the weekend obsessively following every report about her and the baby's state (but not Prince William's because who cares about him? No one). Or you can just refer to this handy worksheet that ought to help you imagine the real-life happenings just perfectly so you can enjoy your weekend away from your computer/TV/information-delivering screen of choice as planned.

    (Not the royal baby.)

    Kate has been practicing prenatal yoga thanks to private instruction at the palace in which she resides. No word on if she performs said exercises on a mat encrusted with gold leaf, but hey, if YOU were a royal... She's allegedly going to have a natural birth, because if she can deal with the pain of wearing LK Bennett pumps every day and having absolutely no privacy or life of her own she can certainly deal with the pain of childbirth, no problem. But in case that doesn't work, it sounds like she's been googling hypnobirthing techniques, according to sources. Hypnobirthers believe the culture of pregnancy stresses moms out and makes the whole process unnecessarily painful. Hopefully Kate won't totally zone out though, because if she over-hypnotizes herself it's like not even being present. "The patient is putting herself into a trancelike state, so she's not very present in the room physically," is how one doctor describes hypnobirthing. If you had a personal chef on hand, wouldn't you want to be "very present" during your birth?

    Parsons might not have liked Boardman’s “Jackie Ho” collections, but they were perfect for Paper .

    Via: Courtesy of Mickey Boardman

    BuzzFeed Fashion's "How I Made It in Fashion" series takes an in-depth look at the careers of fashion's most successful players. Ahead, Paper magazine's editorial director Mickey Boardman talks dropping out of school, celebrity horror stories, and more.

    I remember being in the grocery store in Hanover Park, Illinois, seeing Vogue. I thought, What is a legitimate excuse for a 10-year-old boy to buy a Vogue? I also recall once when my mom was sick, I said, "Oh, I'm just going to get some magazines for mom because she's sick." I didn't plot to get involved in fashion. I kind of always just visualized a lifestyle that would involve lots of travel and interesting people.

    I have a B.A. in Spanish. I lived in Madrid for a while but I decided I wanted to study fashion design, so I moved to New York and came to Parsons. Shortly after starting, I realized I was terrible at sewing — but I liked dressing people up. I did these collections like "the Supremes go to Shanghai," which was all black models in gold lamé; I did a "Jackie Ho" collection, which was like a hip-hop Jackie Onassis. And no one cared — two teachers ever in my time there thought I was fabulous, and the rest thought I was insane. There was some contest we all had to enter, and I did Las Vegas showgirls on swings, and they basically had no clothes on — they were wearing body stockings with glitter and headdresses... What was I thinking? I did three and a half years of a BFA in fashion design and then failed a class my senior year and didn't finish.

    [While attending Parsons] I worked at Paper as an intern. They loved me, loved that I dressed like a freak and thought I was fabulous and — I was flourishing at the magazine. By the point I failed my first class, I had already written my first piece for the magazine.

    The managing editor asked me to interview Vanessa Paradis. Kim Hastreiter, the co-founder of Paper, always said, "If you can talk, you can write." But I was too much of a wuss. I couldn't do it, and I still regret it. And a month later they needed someone to interview Rupert Everett. I met him at the pool at the Peninsula Hotel; he was in a mesh tank top and we talked about jockstraps and other dirty gay things. It was a teeny little quarter- or half-page newsy thing, and they paid me $35. I thought that was great!

    The person who had hired me at Paper who was the office manager, Kim and David's assistant, the party photographer, all these things [at once] — she quit, so they asked me to answer the phones while they figured out what to do. I was the star intern, and I just felt at home. I was so happy that the [attributes] other places thought made me bad, [at Paper] they thought made me good. And the positive reinforcement made me work even harder. When I stopped answering the phones I was very sad, because there you're at the heart of everything — if you're a gossipy type like myself, it's [great]. And despite being a real sloppy mess, I ran a tight ship at the front desk. My desk was immaculate, and I would scrub it every night.

    “That’s fucking awesome,” says Levine, pointing to a pair of (presumably fitted) pants.

    Here's a video of Adam Levine meeting with the Kmart design team.

    The clothing line he designed in coordination with the retailer is imminent. This preview consists of Levine pointing to different jeans lying on a table and saying things like, "A little more faded looking or something," and "I might not be a fan of myself." Oh, him too? Here's to his line including at least a third of the neon that Nicki Minaj's Kmart line did.
