The Definitive Guide to Supermodel Instagrams: Part I

The definitions of “supermodel” are murky and many. You can go back to the ’30s and to the Twiggy era for sporadic uses of the word.

As part of that expansion, we’ve taken the liberal route in determining who qualifies, and now’s where we guide you through a few salient points and visuals relating to the Instagrams of the world’s supermodels.

You’re gonna like the way they look. I guarantee it.

Apparently he sealed the deal with supermodel Carla Bruni after presenting her with a $30,000 white gold Dior ring.

Our boy Nic sure is one fast mover. But then we guess when you're president of France there's no time to fuck around. Just two short weeks after we first told you that the Nicster was shacking up with supermodel Carla Bruni, one of the world's most beautiful women and a talented singer to boot, weekly paper *Le Journal De Dimanche* is reporting that the couple plans to marry early next month.

Nic at Night

  • Jared Paul Stern


Kempt Kudos to our boy Nicolas Sarkozy, the fashion-savvy President of France who one-upped George Bush during a black-tie affair at the White House last month.

Sarkozy, who split from his wife a while back, was spotted out on the town with supermodel-turned-singer Carla Bruni (pictured) the other night in Paris—thereby
