It's considered to be a dream job for most models, but one catwalk queen has just delivered a serious diss to the Victoria's Secret fashion show.

English model Jourdan Dunn has walked for Victoria's Secret in the last three annual shows but won't be appearing this year.

Whether it was her decision or not remains unclear, but it seems there's some bad blood between her and the lingerie giant either way.

In a hastily-deleted tweet posted last night, Jourdan wasn't exactly subtle about her dislike for the brand.

"Feeling so much better about not doing BS… sorry I mean VS now that Rihanna isn't doing it also," the 25-year-old wrote alongside a smiling emoji.

While Jourdan might be out of this year's line-up, there's no shortage of other willing candidates. Indeed, both Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were confirmed as new recruits this week – and they can barely contain their happiness.

Kendall described her new job  as "one of my biggest dreams" in an Instagram post last night, while Gigi burst into tears when she was asked to take part:

The Victoria's Secret show has always been known as one of the most demanding gigs for a model, with former VS Angels admitting to surviving on a liquid-only diet and working out twice a day or more to achieve their enviable look.

"It’s like being an Olympian – they have to be in peak condition," VS's creative director Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou says.

As for Jourdan, she admitted last year that she simply doesn't have the motivation to hit the gym regularly.

"To be honest I hardly ever work out. Even though in my apartment I have a gym and my brother's a personal trainer. I'm just very lazy," she said.

While she might not be getting up on the VS stage this year, the model is still keeping busy – she's been involved in campaigns for Maybelline, H&M, Balmain and more over the last few weeks alone.

On Monday night, top model Jourdan Dunn was at LouLou’s nightclub in Mayfair to join the likes of Cara and Suki for a star-studded fashion bash.

Unfortunately for this Victoria’s Secret model however, things did not go according to plan.

On her way out of the venue a model and her friend were surrounded by paparazzi trying to get a shot of the pair.

As they tried to make an exit from Love Magazine’s Fashion Week party the 25-year old’s pal got on the wrong side of one photographer and the two ended up coming to blows.

In a video posted by TMZ, the model can be seen trying to stop her friend from engaging with the paparazzi but it clearly did not work out well.

While it is not clear from the video what started the fight, it does become pretty clear how it all ended, with one photographer on the ground and Jourdan hopping into a car for a quick exit.

The name of Jourdan’s friend is not known although some media outlets speculate that he could be a publicist. 

However he didn’t appear to be at her side earlier in the day when she attended the Burberry show at Kensington Gardens.

Also spotted at the party, but decidedly not in the same video, was Princess Eugenie. The royal was seen arm in arm with Cara Delevingne as they left the party alongside actress Clara Paget.

All hail H&M! A firm favourite of stylish bargain-hunters, it’s also brought us a decade of affordable designer attire via its celebrated collaborations.

Back in 2004, Karl Lagerfeld got the ball rolling – and since then the likes of Versace, Roberto Cavalli, and Matthew Williamson have all paired-up with the high-street outlet. Last year, Alexander Wang’s sporty offering arrived in stores, predictably sending shoppers into a frenzy.

And H&M this morning was able to confirm that its autumn designer collaboration will be with the Parisian house of Balmain. Hurrah!

We even already have an idea of what the collection will entail – via Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn, who appeared at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night donning sneak-peak pieces.

The models were there alongside Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, the 28-year-old who has since his arrival in 2011 nurtured the fashion house into a global pop-culture phenomenon.

Kendall wore a statement black blazer with white beading detail – very much Olivier’s signature style. Meanwhile, Jourdan opted for a military-feel navy top, similar versions of which have been spotted on the likes of Kim Kardashian. She completed the outfit with a red ruffle skirt and chunky metallic waist belt. Both had on a pair of thigh-high suede boots too.

Celebrity fans of the high-end label include Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Miley Cyrus, and Kim Kardashian.

“I want to talk to my generation − this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain,” the designer said today in response to the announcement.

“The collaboration felt extremely natural to me as H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it,” he added.

“We are excited to have Balmain as our guest designer at H&M,” the clothing company also said in a statement. “With its mix of couture spirit and streetwear attitude, Balmain owns a unique style; opulent and direct, sensual and energetic.”

Balmain is known for its sky-high prices: simple blazers come in at around €1,500, sandals are similarly priced, while a leather embellished mini dress from this season is a cool €8,500.

Although price-points for the forthcoming collaboration have yet to be released, last Novemeber the Alexander Wang collection ranged from €15 for over-the-knee socks, and €30 for a tank top, to €200 for footwear, and €350 for a metallic down jacket.

Available from November 5, in around 250 stores worldwide and online at hm.com, the Balmain collection will feature clothing and accessories for both ladies and men.

Irish Victoria’s Secret Angel Stella Maxwell (yup, New Zealand can’t have her) has an amazing new cover out this month – namely the June 2015 edition of Elle Russia.

Understandably, the Belfast-beauty has seen her profile sky-rocket since the iconic lingerie brand announced her as one of its ten new Angels last month. Born in Belgium to Irish parents and raised largely in New Zealand, we’re still declaring her as this nation’s one-and-only VS superstar.

The Elle cover shot was taken on a recent shoot in Mexico, and depicts the 24-year-old model in a silk, lilac-hued dress and – more curiously – strappy sandals teamed with colourful socks.

North Yorkshire-native but New York-based Ben Morris was behind the lens for the shoot (he counts the likes of British Vogue, Nike, and H&M among his other clients). Meanwhile, Kenna – who regularly tends to the tresses of Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn – styled her hair, with Parisian Yacine Diallo on makeup.

When not gracing international magazine covers, Stella is often spotted hanging out with model BFFs Barbara Palvin, who’s been romantically linked to Niall Horan, and Bella Hadid, the younger sister of Gigi.

Happy birthday, Gigi Hadid! The model has now officially left her teenage years behind, and celebrities have been taking to Twitter to wish her well.

Among them was her boyfriend, Aussie singer Cody Simpson, 18, who posted an adorable message, calling the Sports Illustrated star his “best mate”. “You are a woman of soul and substance… I love you,” he added.

The LA-native is the up-and-coming model-of-the-moment, and counts the likes of Justin Bieber, Karlie Kloss, Selena Gomez, Jourdan Dunn, and Kendall Jenner as BFFs. Indeed, Kendall and Gigi have appeared in tandem in several high-profile fashion campaigns, and last month Ms Jenner posted a striking shot of the pair taken from the April edition of Vogue.

Earlier this week, Gigi was on the streets in Manhattan shooting for Maybelline with Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima.

Gigi was in New York on Tuesday on behalf of Maybelline

She has already celebrated her birthday – going for dinner with friends at the weekend wearing a striking Blue Life jumpsuit. The item, which boasts floral embroidery and a flared leg, was on sale on the brand’s website for €200 but has now completely sold out.

Cody and Gigi first began dating almost a year ago, but broke up due to scheduling clashes. They reunited in November and seemingly have been inseparable since. In lieu of birthday gifts from her beau, she asked for McDonalds vouchers to give out to homeless people that are in need of a meal. “I don't always carry cash and it’s nice to know it’ll be put to good use,” she explained.

Cody and Gigi have been dating on-off for a year

Gigi’s first campaign was for Baby Guess – at the tender age of just two. More recently, she's appeared in adverts for Tom Ford, Sisley, and Seafolly, and has walked for Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Marc Jacobs.
