This is freakin' nuts!
And now things are even more awkward because

Werk that Blue Steel, Colton Haynes!!
The hunky Arrow star has just been announced as the new face of Diesel by Nicola Formichetti and we couldn’t agree with their choice more!
Well, actually we don’t have to picture it too hard since Colton revealed a glimpse into his shoot with a behind-the-scenes pic he posted on Instagram, along with the caption:
Beauty is everywhere!!!
The modeling industry has often been criticized for touting almost inhuman standards of beauty, but that’s all changing now!!
Late last year a gorgeous cross-eyed model was featured on the front of Pop magazine, early this year Aerie started advertising lingerie using real, un-photoshopped models, and now Jillian Mercado, a fashion blogger with muscular dystrophy, is starring in Diesel’s “We Are Connected” campaign!
This development is SO encouraging — it delivers the powerful message that we are all unique, and things that may have once been seen as flaws in the modeling industry are now seen as beauty marks!
Which they absolutely are!!
Jillian was recently a guest on the Today Show, where she got to explain her story a little further. She said of the shoot:
Ever dream of seeing Kate Upton strip RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY OWN EYES??
If your answer was an overwhelming YES, V magazine's spring cover is just the thing for you!
The mag asks on the front, “Why Can’t Kate Upton Keep Her Clothes On?”. Then, by way of a clever clear cover, you can take those burdensome rags right off with the mere flip of a page!!
Editor Stephen Gan explained the unusual cover, saying:
Let's be real, most photo shoots in magazines are pretty derivative and predictable, but once in a while, magic really does happen.
Like Lily Collins wearing a blue mohawk in the September issue of Flaunt magazine! She looks BADASS!
On the cover, she resembles a
Time to get out of the Haus before reductive-ness takes over!
Nicola Formichetti, the man responsible for dressing Lady GaGa in meat (amongst other things), has revealed he's no longer serving as the singer's personal stylist.
Why? Because he couldn't deal with her daily fashion demands!
This could've been a total DISASTER!
High-waisted drop-crotch pants weren't made for mere mortals, but Jessica Alba probably emerged fully formed from inside a rose or something, so of course she kills it in this outfit.
Such blatant injustice!
Messy ombre waves and wedge heels completed her look.
