Zendaya Coleman often “claps back” on social media – this time it was to rescue a young woman and offer her a gig. Through social media, Zendaya Coleman has become a bit of a clapback queen.

On Day 5 of New York Fashion Week, we handed the social media reigns over to five awesome models on the Women Management roster: Hereith Paul, Eilika Meckbach, Alana Zimmer, Mina Cvetkovic, and Steph Smith (and more). Throughout the day, this #ybsquad gave us a look at model life during one seriously busy week, from backstage to late night face masks, check out how they spent the day. Three things that are always in my bag are during fashion week are… My charger, my concealer and a huge bottle of water. - Hereith Paul Apart the obvious like my book, showcards and heels I always carry a bottle of chlorophyll water, a nut or protein bar and my charger battery pack. - Eilika Meckbach I always have my book, heels and a water. - Steph Smith YSL Touche Éclat, moisturizer and phone charger. - Mina Cvetkovic My go-to outfit is… Black skinny jeans and a white tee or tank top. - HP If I’m unsure of what is suitable for all appointments of my day, the go to outfit is ‘the model uniform’: all black, skinny jeans with a black tank top.

The market has been taken over by celebrities.” At the same time, Porizkova says that—thanks to post-production retouching tools like Adobe Photoshop—today’s models, themselves, aren’t on the same level that they used to be (ouch!): “Adobe Photoshop killed the model,” she says.
When Terry Richardson’s studio behavior sparked a fashion-world conversation about the sexual harassment of female models last year, no one discussed how their male counterparts are getting manhandled regularly…but can’t boys fend for themselves?

For a long time, it’s promoted the negative ideal that very thin, white teenage girls epitomize high-end beauty,“ says Sara Ziff, former model and founder of the Model Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating safe and fair working conditions.
