#ThrowbackThursday - me and my sweet friend #BehatiPrinsloo backstage at some random show when we were just baby models. Hard to believe we've been friends for nearly a decade. I love you Bee, wherever you are in the world right now I'm thinking about you!! 💋👯
Steven Sebring and I shot the entire #StudyOfPose book on a circular rig of 100 cameras. This allowed us the raw data to create 3D sculptures of the poses like these two you see here and also an app that has all 1000 poses presented from all 100 angles. The iPad app which was just released, is all 100,000 images in one place and has literally never been done before. It's available at the Apple App Store for 19.99, which means you're getting 50 images per penny - a pretty good deal if you ask me. 😉 http://www.whosay.com/l/cjNaeEL
There's still prevailing myth that pregnant women should not exercise during pregnancy. I see comments like that on my Instagram every time I post a picture at the gym. Not only is it alright to keep fit during pregnancy, doctors now know that doing so has a positive impact on both the mother and baby. Your abdominals and core need to be strengthened throughout pregnancy, it helps with carrying the baby before term and also aids in labor, delivery and recovery after. Of course, there is always need for care and common sense when working out, and even more so when pregnant. Consult with your doctor on which exercises are best for you. For me personally, keeping fit has made this pregnancy such a joy. I'm a big fan of the medicine ball, it's a great underused tool for good core strength and can help increase your heart rate. Especially while pregnant I've found it helps relieve backaches and improves my posture by strengthening and toning muscles in my back and thighs. #StongMom #WorkoutWednesday #PregnancyFitness

In today's installment of #SundayStories - why Steven Meisel once stopped a Vogue shoot to have me watch a DVD. 💿💋
I've always believed that models should be like actresses from the silent era of motion pictures - able to convey a story or emotion with just their face and pose. For me the best shoots are always the ones that have a theme or story behind them, where the model gets to play a real character that both she and the camera enjoy. The picture you see here is from one of the editorials I shot for Vogue while they were filming their documentary "The September Issue" back in 2007. For this particular shot Steven Meisel told me that I would be playing a version of Audrey Hepburn's character in the film 'Funny Face'. The only problem was, I'd never seen that movie. Back in those days we didn't all have smart phones with access to YouTube so Steven sent a producer out to go find the DVD and bring a laptop for me to watch it on. He could have just shown me a still from the movie but he knew I was a huge musical fan so he let me watch the whole movie on set. I remember sitting in Pat McGrath's makeup chair watching the movie with headphones on while the other models like Sasha, Gemma Ward and Caroline Trentini came in and out of their shots. Finally, I finished the movie and was ready for my close up... 💁
