When it comes to celebrity doppelgangers, some are more striking than others.

Mila Kunis and Sarah Hyland, Krysten Ritter and Anne Hathaway, Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry are all up there, but did you ever notice that Kelly Brook is an absolute ringer for Cindy Crawford?

Sharing a snap of herself on Instagram last night, the 37-year-old model confused fans who struggled to believe the throwback photo she uploaded was actually her.

 

I still don't #TBT

"Isn't that Cindy Crawford?" wrote one of Kelly's followers while another added: "I thought this was Cindy Crawford."

"Darling it's Cindy," remarked another before eagle-eyes Insta users remembered to check for Cindy's iconic mole.

Clearing up the confusion for everyone who thought they might actually lose sleep over the matter, one fan wrote: "I thought it was Cindy then checked the mole on her lips."

And now we can all move on with our lives…

If you are the daughter of an ultra-famous supermodel, odds are you are going to genetically blessed. 

And never has that been more true of Cindy Crawford's daughter, Kaia. 

At just 14 the stunning brunette just nailed her very first fashion shoot for luxury boutique Chrome Heart

Though Kaia has featured in small shoots for the likes of Teen Vogue in the past, we were expecting only big things for the young teen as she signed with IMG Models officially last year. 

And the gorgeous pics come the same week as Cindy has announced her retirement from modelling. 

Well, sort of. 

The American model, who has been in the biz thirty years, said she would be retiring officially on her 50th birthday which is next month. However, she kind of seemed to backtrack in a follow-up Instagram post. 

"Every year, I tell my kids I'm retiring. It's a running joke in our family. And yet every year, opportunities pop up that really excite me," read the caption. 

"While it's true that I'm eager to shift my focus a bit to concentrate on my businesses, friends and family – I'm not making any final statements (not all headlines tell the whole story!)."

Maybe model mother and daughter will do a shoot together. DREAM!

We were already excited about the news that Leighton Meester had become a mum, but now that we know more details we're truly smitten.

Leighton and her husband Adam Brody are proud parents to a baby girl, who they've named Arlo Day.

And contrary to earlier reports, little Arlo in fact arrived in early September, not last week.

A copy of the birth certificate obtained by TMZ today shows that the couple welcomed their new arrival at Whittier Hospital in Los Angeles on September 4.

Thankfully Arlo won't have to deal with a multi-syllable surname, as her parents have just given her the last name Brody. Phew!

News of Leighton and Adam's pregnancy first went public back in March, when the actress was spotted in LA with a large baby bump:

The couple first met on the set of their 2011 film The Oranges, and married in a secret ceremony last year.

Chatting to fans last year, Adam seemed more than ready to become a dad. When asked how many kids he'd like, the actor responded, "I say twelve. And I decide."

As for Leighton, she too happily chatted about motherhood in a 2014 interview, saying many of her friends had settled down too.

"Most people I know are starting to get married," she admitted in Nylon magazine.

"It'll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I've got dogs."

Hitting the age of 50 is a milestone and definitely worthy of a few things, but in Cindy Crawford's case, that translates into writing a book. 

The model is writing all about her glittering career in the fashion industry and reflecting on the wisdom she has picked up along the way ahead of her landmark birthday next February.

But in the book, it's not all glitz and glam as you thought it would be, she also tells some of the downside's to having a modelling career.

"Unfortunately I was never one of those girls who could eat whatever I wanted and not gain weight (damn you Kate Moss!)," the Super writes in the tome, entitled  Becoming, reports Style

"Of course as soon as I told myself that I wasn't going to eat any sugar, bread, or whatever, all I could think of was sugar, bread or whatever!"

"I have finally settled on the idea of being 80 per cent good 80 per cent of the time. For me, that's doable."

There's a strong sense in the book that Cindy wants to raise awareness for what she believes in. 

"To my mind, the most important message I can promote and exemplify is one that supports diversity and health."

Cindy's book, Becoming, will hit shelves in the this month.

Earlier this year, an unretouched photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford posing for Marie Claire magazine went viral, appearing on countless websites around the world.

The photo, supposedly a "pre-Photoshop" version of an image that appeared in Marie Claire Latin America's December 2013 issue, was praised by many for showing what a "real" body looks like, even that of a world-famous model.

Now though, Cindy has spoken out about the leaked photo for the first time, and admits she felt "blindsided" by the whole affair.

The 47-year-old model claims the image was digitally manipulated to enhance any normal flaws even further, and that it wasn't an accurate representation of her body. "That picture didn’t reflect what I saw when I looked in the mirror—even in the worst dressing-room lighting," she tells Elle Canada.

"It was stolen and it was malicious."

Despite believing that the image had been altered, Cindy says she felt under pressure to appear unfazed by having her flaws on show to the whole world.

"I was very conflicted, to be honest," she admits. "It put me in a tough spot: I couldn’t come out against it because I’m rejecting all these people who felt good about it, but I also didn’t embrace it because it wasn’t real – and even if it were real, I wouldn’t have wanted it out there."

The mum-of-one adds that the photo definitely put a dent in her confidence. "I know my body, and I know it’s not perfect, but maybe I have a false body image; maybe I think I look better than I do. I think that most women are hard on themselves," she says.

At the time of the image's publication, celebrity photographer John Russo released a statement claiming it was "a fraudulent altered version" of the originally published photo.

While she was far from happy that the image was ever circulated, Cindy says she can understand why so many women took comfort from it.

"Somehow seeing a picture of me was like seeing a chink in the armour. Whether it was real or not isn’t relevant, although it’s relevant to me."

Cindy Crawford is opening up about the death of her brother, Jeff when he had only turned three.

The supermodel, 49, said that when she was growing up she always knew her dad wanted to have a little boy. His delight at having Jeff was unfortunately cut short we he lost his battle with leukaemia.

Cindy, who was 8 at the time her brother was diagnosed, said that at the time she didn’t really understand what was wrong.

“I think when my parents first told us that my brother was sick, we didn’t really understand what it meant,” she said when she sat down to be interviewed for Oprah’s Master Class.

Jeff received a grim prognosis and Cindy’s parents signed him up for an experimental treatment programme. The entire family would make the 4 hour journey to the hospital from their home almost daily.

In the interview Cindy says she didn’t really understand what was happening as she had never before had any experience of someone close to her dying. According to Cindy however, Jeff did know.

She recalls a story her mother told her of finding Jeff preparing for what would happen when he died.

“She said, ‘What are you doing?’ And he said, ‘I’m praying.’ And she said, ‘What are you praying about?’ He said, ‘So that when I die, you’ll be OK.”

When Jeff was 3, he was supposed to return to the hospital for more treatments after Christmas, Cindy remembers how he refused to go back to the hospital.

According to Cindy “the day that he was supposed to go back to the hospital, that’s the day he died.”

She says that knowing her brother had decided he was done fighting his illness brings her “some sense of completeness and peace.”

Cindy’s interview can be seen in the video below.

When we were 13-years-old we were struggling to work the clasp on our brand new bra and wondered if we'd ever get our braces off, but it looks like this 13-year-old has taken the whole 'becoming a teenager' thing in her stride and manages to look breathtakingly beautiful in the process.

Then again, if we were the daughter of world-famous supermodel Cindy Crawford, maybe we'd have looked and acted just like Kaia Gerber did on the red carpet this weekend.

Looking effortlessly chic for a girl taking her first steps into teen life, Cindy's daughter stunned paparazzi at the premiere of Tomorrowland in L.A yesterday.

Looking like a carbon copy of her stunning mum, Kaia rocked a leather jacket, ripped jeans and perfectly styled hair as she posed for photographers alongside her dad, older brother and Cindy herself.

Wearing minimal make-up and her hair in tousled waves around her shoulders, the teen exuded confidence and looked more polished than we ever did at her age, but that's OK because…well, no, it's not OK… we are SO jealous.

Just LOOK at her!

Hey Kaia, call us with tips, we're seriously struggling here…

Cindy Crawford’s recent unretouched ‘leaked’ photo has caused quite a stir online over the last week or so, but for once, it was for the right reasons.

Crawford didn’t actually release the picture herself, nor did she withhold it. It actually dates from 2013; news anchor Charlene White found it on a fashion blog, tweeted it, and now most of us have seen it. Imperfect photos have fuelled the gossip industry for years, so it’s really quite nice that this photo went viral with so much supportive comment.

It’s definitely positive to have an open discussion about how bodily ‘flaws’ are perceived as such, and how airbrushing, cropping and retouching can only serve to further skew our perception of perfection. I’ve been mulling over those who don't really ‘do’ Photoshop, or, at least, have been vocal about it of late…

Kiera Knightley has long fought against images of her being retouched without her permission; back in 2004, she expressed serious displeasure after her breasts were digitally enhanced for the King Arthur movie poster. More recently, she did a topless shoot with Patrick Demarchelier for Interview magazine under the strict clause that the photos would remain unaltered.

In the accompanying interview, she stated: ‘I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons. Women's bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame… it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape’.

Ashley Benson of Pretty Little Liars fame also hit out in this Instagram post against a promo picture of herself and her co-stars: ‘we all look ridiculous. Way too much photoshop. We all have flaws. No one looks like this. It's not attractive’. It was quite brave of her to publicly rail against imagery from the show she works on – and why wouldn’t she? The picture in question is scarily unrealistic.

It’s been almost two years since Debenhams announced that they had ‘a moral obligation to ban the airbrush’, and pledged to ban retouching on all of their lingerie model shots. The same brand has experimented with using mannequins of all sizes in their stores as part of a commitment to encouraging a more positive, inclusive message to their consumers rather than ‘crushing their self-esteem by making false comparisons’.

There’s a lesson in this for all of us. How many times have you said ‘excuse the lack of make-up’, or ‘I look gross today, I have no tan on’? It’s time for a reality check. Are we all supposed to be airbrushed in real life? Of course not, and life would be so boring.

Good grooming is one thing, but more often than not, there’s no real reason for us to explain or apologise for our appearance. What’s truly at fault here is a Trojan standard of beauty; it’s false, it’s virtually unachievable and, as illustrated above, it’s best ignored!

Deirdre Foley is a history grad, sceptic, wearer of red lipstick and self-confessed 'beauty maniac'. She is also the co-founder of fabulous Irish beauty blog, Viva Adonis.

With Photoshop now such an accepted norm in fashion circles, this is truly refreshing to see.

An unretouched image of a 47-year-old Cindy Crawford posing in her underwear has gone viral on Twitter, receiving high praise from social media users.

The image, which originally appeared in the December 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine’s Mexico/ Latin America issue, was initially shared by ITV news anchor Charlene White.

Sharing the post to her Twitter page, White wrote: “Cindy Crawford’s April spread in Marie Claire features 100% non-retouched photos. Take a bow Ms. C.”

Despite the fact that the image is two years old, its recent resurrection has struck a major chord with the public.

One Twitter user wrote: “This is why #CindyCrawford holds the #SUPERMODEL title! The untouched photo is inspiring women everywhere.”

Meanwhile, another commented: “Shocking? No. Very real, seriously beautiful, and it’s about freakin’ time.”

While Cindy has yet to comment on the attention her photo has been grabbing on social media around the world, we’ll go out on a limb and say she’s feeling proud.

This is so refreshing. High five, Cindy!

MTV is apparently bringing back their hit fashion show; House of Style! But the biggest surprise about the show’s comeback is who's hosting it.

While everyone expected big names from the modelling world to present the stylish show, producers have instead chosen Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea. 

Even though Iggy is considered a surprising choice for the role, she does have some fashion creditability. Azalea has already starred in a House of Holland campaign, performed for Alexander Wang x H&M and she is quickly becoming a front row favourite for New York Fashion week.

The rebooted show will give behind-the-scenes look into the world of modelling and will only broadcast online.

Even though Iggy is nothing like her predecessor Cindy Crawford, we can’t wait to see her hosting skills in action.

Cindy Crawford is 48 years old and still manages to not look a day over thirty.

While the model likes to maintain her appearance, she doesn’t get too bogged down with it and admits her biggest beauty indulgence is a massage.

Talking to InStyle magazine, she said: “Massages are my biggest beauty indulgence; I try to get one every two weeks.”

Although, she did admit that she gets a “microdermabrasion facial every five to six weeks.”

However, she explains that her beauty regime doesn’t come naturally saying:  “My mother never wore make-up and only used soap and water to clean her face, so when I moved to New York to start modelling, I had a lot to learn. Now I take a few minutes, morning and night to apply my anti-ageing skincare”

The model says she is careful to apply SPF when outside and admits to sacrificing nuts and wine for the sake of her beauty.
