Putting the SUPER back in SUPERModel
Heidi Klum is out and Angela Lindvall is in! Project Runway is coming back with a 13 contestant all-star edition, and Angela Lindvall will be the host. But there isn’t just a change in who is hosting. Lifetime has added some fresh new faces to the judging panel. Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, and Joanna Coles are all a part of the new team.
Lindvall’s new gig will definitely keep her busy. Not only is she a new host, but she is a jewelry designer. Jewelry designer John Hardy joined forces with the supermodel, to create handcrafted accessories made with recycled gold and sterling silver. The line is called “Hijau Dua.” And the sustainability doesn’t stop there! Check this out guys and gals; for each piece of jewelry purchased, the brand will plant bamboo seedlings to offset the carbon emissions used for travel and advertising. Lindvall recently visited Bali, to help plant over half a million bamboo seedlings for the Bali Province Government’s “Bali Clean and Green” program. No wonder she is so thin…she doesn’t have time to eat because she is saving the planet!
To see the making of “Hijau Dua” check out the link below. Way to go Angela Lindvall!

Best Dressed and Sustainable
Kate Middleton is on top of the world, and on top of Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List! Kate first appeared on the list in 2008, but it is her first time on the list as a member of the British Royal Family. Kate’s combination of high fashion style and affordable every day wear garnered her this year’s top spot. But the Duchess of Cambridge isn’t letting all the excitement go to her head. She isn’t afraid of recycling an outfit, which is both good for her wallet and the environment. Check out Kate wearing a Ted Baker trench coat in 2008 (Left) and wearing the exact same coat again July 4th, 2011 (Right)
She also was spotted recycling a green Diane von Furstenberg dress. Middleton wore the dress during her recent trip to Los Angeles (Left), and also encored the ensemble at Zara Phillips' pre-wedding party (Right).
For all you eco-friendly fashionistas who don’t want to recycle an outfit, there is another way to incorporate Kate’s style into your own. Check out Butter London and their “3 Free Lacquers” at www.butterlondon.com . The polishes are free from formaldehyde, toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate, ingredients commonly found in most nail polishes, and possibly linked to skin allergies and contact dermatitis. Butter London has a ‘No More Waity, Katie’ inspired by the Princess. It sells for $14.00 and is the perfect royal union of style and eco-friendly fashion.
