Earlier this week Gemma Ward revealed that she will be retiring her career as an internationally recognized model. Gemma disappeared from the fashion industry after the sudden death of Heath Ledger in 2008. At the time, Gemma was romantically linked to the actor.
Last week, Gemma was photographed on her 22nd birthday wearing tight black shorts and a leopard jacket. The photos unveiled a clear weight gain during her absence from the modeling world. Yet she still remains a healthy weight for someone of her height. Either way, the modeling industry is a ruthless one and with the recent photos having been slapped across the internet, the former waiflike model has been relentlessly criticized by fans.
Taking a stand against the criticism, Gemma bravely decided to leave her career as a model. The fashion world will certainly feel the loss of her departure from the modeling industry
See how an amazing hair and makeup artist can completely transform the face of a model. Amazing!

Loving the New Look Agy!
Known for her icy blonde bob, Agyness Deyn has made a name for herself all over the world, walking in every Fashion Week and showing up in every fashion advertisement. Today she’s become a household name as widely recognized as Heidi.
But at the ‘Coco Before Chanel’ premiere, she showed no fear by stepping out in a daring gothic ensemble of head to toe black.. starting with her new jet black hair!
Truth be told, this Brit could walk outside with a mop on her head and still look good. Edgy hairstyles that most women could never get away with look almost natural on Deyn thanks to her stunning features and fresh take on style.
Derek Lam Spring 2010 Collection
I have to comment on how absolutely gorgeous Elite model, Eniko Mihalik, looked while modeling in the Derek Lam Spring 2010
show yesterday! At age 21, this Hungarian model has already had quite the amazing career. This week alone she has already modeled in some of the biggest spring collections and for some of the leading designers in the business… Diane von Furstenberg
, Jason Wu
, and opening model for Ruffian
to name a few! Just look at her cheekbone definition and at those crystal blue eyes. And let me not forget to mention the hair and makeup at the Derek Lam show! I love the toussled bouffant and how the eye makeup looks like a sunset. Oh by the way, those earrings are OUTRAGEOUS.. if you don’t know me then let me tell you that I am obsessed with big earrings and I need to find a pair of these!
I had the privilege of working with Eniko a little over a year ago when I interned for my second summer at Zac Posen. I dressed Eniko as she closed the NYC Resort show. She was a total sweetheart and so unbelievably down to earth!
