Screen-Shot-2014-07-02-at-2.20.45-PM

The rise of Asian supermodels ranks among the most important things to happen within the modeling industry’s past decade. The girls may get the bulk of the attention, but the elite group of Asian male models is every bit as exciting. Boys like Sung Jin Park, Phillip Huang, JaeYoo and Daisuke Ueda are dynamic in campaigns and editorials alike – bringing elegance to every shot all while breaking boundaries.

Photography duo Idris & Tony capture these superstars in an exclusive portfolio for Models.com.

Chrissy Teigen learns about Monkey Style and tells FoodBeast the vilest thing she’s ever put in her mouth

 

chrissy-teigen

FoodBeast:

 

The first time we met Chrissy Teigen she was scarfing down chalupa stuffing at a Taco Bell Thanksgiving dinner (they exist). She’s one of the most charming, potty-mouthed people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, well versed in both froufrou gourmet and fast food munchie talk. Foodbeast got the chance to catch up with her a few weeks ago, getting the word on her stint as a judge on Snack Off — think Iron Chef for Stoners — and the vilest thing she’s ever put in her mouth.

Sheesh, she’s a homie.

_____

If Nancy Grace came over for dinner, what would you cook her?

That depends if she has any allergies, because I would cook all of those foods. Inside one fantastic pie.

 

John Legend’s [her husband] most impressive dish?

My personal favorite thing that John makes is his fried chicken. I bought him a deep fryer for each house, for each coast, because  I needed him to make it whenever I need. He does an amazing mac n cheese. A little more intricate, three cheeses. It’s wonderful. People demand it every barbecue we have.

 

In-N-Out or Five Guys?

I’ve actually never had Five Guys before. I think maybe I did in the DC airport. I don’t recall it because I was probably a little hungover. I’ve had In-N-Out so many times. I absolutely love In-N-Out but those fries kill me. The In-N-Out burger over any other burger, but I will take McDonald’s fries.

 

Have you ever gone Monkey Style?

Wait! What’s Monkey Style?

 

Animal Style Fries stuffed in an In-N-Out Burger.

Oh. My. God. That’s Bonkers Style. I’m a 100 percent down.

If you could run your own restaurant, what would you have on deck?

I don’t think I’d ever own a restaurant really. I think that anyone that thinks that they can do it are usually the wrong people.

I would love to open up a bed and breakfast. I would love to have a very small menu, with 3 apps, 5 main, and maybe 2 desserts and 1 special or something. I think all menus should be super limited, do they best you can with them, rather than those large menus. I would do my mom’s scalloped potato dish, a shepard’s pie or chicken pot pie. I love anything with a poached egg on it. So a salad with lardons, honey mustard vinegrette, with a poached egg. Tomato soup. I make the best tomato soup. Definitely a beautiful roasted chicken dish with seasonal vegetables. Fish and Chips with my dad’s famous tartar sauce.

As you can see this menu has no clear vision. It’s a very classy b&b.

 

Just throw on some truffle sauce and you’ll be fine… Do you watch Kitchen Nightmares?

I’ve seen every single episode. What I don’t understand is why don’t they clean up if they know he’s coming and why are those mistakes so fixable?

 

That being said: Guy Fieri or Gordon Ramsay?

I would rather hang out and have a good time with Guy. I might want to go to a fancy restaurant with Gordon. I actually did go to his restaurant [Fieri’s] in NYC. We went in with every intention of making fun of it and we walked away tail-between-our legs. The food was excellent and the decor was hysterical. You have to take it for what it is and enjoy it.

 

Most ridiculous thing you’ve judged on Snack Off?

The most vile I’ve put in my mouth on the show was a smoked salmon tartar olive baguette topped with a red maraschino cherry. It was horrific.

The supermodel’s guide: Where to shop in Seoul

Kyung-Ah Song for Vogue Korea (March 2013) photo shoot by Bosung Kim

CNN Travel: 

She’s walked the runways from Paris to New York for the likes of Dior and Armani and was the face of MAC, Saks Fifth Avenue and Levi’s. On top of all that, she’s also a writer, painter and a prolific cartoonist.

And although it would probably be difficult to make any type of clothing look bad on that body, Korea‘s top supermodel Song Kyung-ah, 33, is extremely picky about shopping.

We asked Korea’s top supermodel about her favorite fashion haunts and where to shop in Seoul.

CNN Travel:Who is your favorite Korean designer and why?

Song Kyung-ah: Steve J & Yoni P. They design the clothes best suited for the trendy Korean fashion market right now. They’re so lighthearted and enthusiastic and bursting with creativity, and I love the work that they do together. They add the trend factor to very simple, basic items.

CNN Travel:Where can you buy their clothes?

Song: I like to go to the second floor of Galleria Department Store, which has a select shop (Galleria Design Street) that sells designs by up and coming Korean designers.

CNN Travel: Where are some of your other favorite places to shop in Seoul?

Song: The selection at 10 corso como Seoul is amazing. When you walk in, you can identify all the trends at a glance.

They also have the coolest home products as well as a collection of great albums and art books. I usually shop for shoes and accessories there too.

Garosugil is another great place to shop in Seoul. Whenever I go there to hang out with friends or have business meetings, I make the rounds at all the small shops dotting the street.

My favorites are ALAND, which showcases a lot of work by new Korean designers, or MAGNMAG, which is a select shop with amazing prices.

CNN Travel: What do you think is different about Korean fashion?

Song: I think Seoul is unusually sensitive to trends and the speed at which they change is quite startling. Thus, rather than focusing on the tailoring, there’s more emphasis on color or accessorizing the clothes.

Personally, however, although I do like trends, I think there needs to be more focus on getting the basics right. I also wish there were more styles available than what is trendy at the moment.

However, in terms of quality for price, it’s the best shopping in the world!

CNN Travel: What are the criteria you look for when you shop?

Song: I’m always searching for clothes that can highlight my individuality, and what will cover up any shortcomings.

If your complexion is on the bright side, for example, then you should choose bright colors to complement it.

I also tend to buy looser fitting clothes in order to not look too thin.

And I never buy anything that doesn’t fit comfortably.
