The New Face of RED Valentino? Lottie Moss

Lottie, little sister to supermodel Kate Moss, is gaining momentum in her modeling career. Following a covetable role in Calvin Klein ads – and trailing in her older sibling’s footsteps – the Brit’s doe-eyed face now stars in RED Valentino’s winter campaign.

Photographed by industry legend Tim Walker, 16-year-old Lottie lets her playful side show in the quirky cartoon-inspired shoot. Looks like Kendall Jenner might have some competition for reigning teen model.

Six mini replicas of Lady Liberty will be trading their seafoam-green robes for one of DVF’s famous creations. The first of the statuettes was unveiled this morning on The Today Show, but if you’re in the Big Apple, keep an eye out for these ladies in the Meatpacking District, Columbus Circle, Times Square, SoHo, Washington Square, and Midtown East.

Getting around in extreme weather can certainly be a battle, especially when you’re trying to look chic while pounding the pavement.

  4. Tom Ford “Alix” Leather Tote. Padlock your valuables to protect them from the perfect storm in the front pocket of this richly hued bag.

At-Home Know-How: 3 Things to Try, Stat

For better skin while flying: Remove makeup with your to-go wipe of choice. Then apply a translucent hydrating mask or face oil during your journey. Lastly, reapply essential cosmetics: cream blush and mascara.

For cowlick-free bangs: Bangs dry faster than the rest of your hair, so grab a blow-dryer ASAP to tame uncooperative texture. Angle it toward your forehead from above and brush strands side to side until dry. Finish by rolling the ends under.

For those last drops of topcoat: Holiday greetings, save-the-dates, and thank-you cards. Spare yourself the trouble (and bitter taste) of licking every envelope shut. Instead, just paint on a couple lines of clear nail polish to seal.
