FASHION SCOOP: IMG SCOUTS MODELS ON INSTAGRAM, REVLON GETS SUED


REVLON HIT WITH ANTI-SEMETIC LAWSUIT BY FORMER EXEC

It seems like Revlon is starting off the new year with a lawsuit. 
Former Chief Scientific Officer Alan Meyers claims that he was fired by the cosmetic company as an act of retaliation and discrimination against him and is seeking unspecified damages. According to Meyers, Revlon’s Italian CEO, Lorenzo Delpani, often lashed out at Meyers in front of other employees, making both anti-Semetic and anti-American comments. Equally concerning are Meyers claims that he was let go after Delpani failed to listen to his concerns about safety hazards in newly acquired factories. Revlon denies these allegations, calling them “baseless” and “frivolous.” 
We will be watching this space for sure.

KIM KARDASHIAN DROPS THE BOMB ABOUT KENDALL
To everybody who has suspected that the only reason Kendall Jenner is a model because of her famous, Internet-breaking sister, well it seems like that could be true after all. In a new teaser video for the upcoming season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," a frustrated Kim is seen venting to sister Kourtney about what we can only presume is their little sis, Kendall, see below:


OUCH!

IMG SCOUTS MODELS ON INSTAGRAM
Here is a serious piece of good news for all the model wannabe's on Instagram!
In mid-December, IMG launched an Instagram account called "We Love Your Genes," which could grease the skids to discovering models through the app. Posting a photo with the tag #WLYG will land aspiring models in front of the agency's scouting and development team. It's not unlike the old practice of sending in a headshot and full-length bikini photo...but in this case, your portfolio can be a few hundred photos deep and you have more of an opportunity to incorporate your personality.
With Fashion Month coming up in February, we're particularly eager to see if any Instagram-cast faces make it onto the catwalk. It would certainly throw some added weight behind this kind of program,especially since Guess discovered one of its spring models on the platform, while Marc by Marc Jacobs held Instagram casting calls for both its fall 2014 and spring 2015 campaigns.
