Kendall Jenner Wears a Tiny Bikini and Goes Braless on the Runway (PHOTOS)

09/08/2014 at 03:30 PM ET

Kendall Jenner — oh wait, it’s just Kendall now — has been very busy during New York Fashion Week. The model, who is paving her own way in the industry separate from her family, just hit the catwalk at another show. And once again, she’s wearing very little clothing.

Kendall walked Tommy Hilfiger’s psychedelic ’70s-inspired runway (note the flowers sprouting on the catwalk in the photo above!) Monday wearing a patriotic star-printed two piece, which featured an itty-bitty triangle top and matching boy short bottoms. The star also sported star tattoos and ankle boots showcasing the same print. (We’re still trying to figure out the whole boots and bikini thing.)

The 18-year-old rising model also closed out the show in an even more revealing look — a long sheer navy dress with just briefs underneath — no top (something she’s comfortable doing on the runway).

Kendall shared a more SFW photo on her Instagram — a pretty headshot which showed off her smokey eye makeup and face tattoos.

What else has she been up to? A whole lot. Over the weekend, she modeled in the DVF show in a chic black-and-white look that we’d love to add to our wardrobe.

Kendall kicked off her New York Fashion Week appearances at the Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates Icons party, wearing a white silk gown featuring an open back and long train. (A very glam look.)

And just in case you need another reminder that Kendall’s everywhere right now, check out her modeling feature opposite Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing from the New York Times Sunday Style section, in which she reminds the world once again that she’s pursuing a career totally on her own.

What do you think of Kendall’s New York Fashion Week so far? Do you want to see her on more runways? Which look is your favorite. Share your thoughts below.

Cate Blanchett Toasts Women in Film in Best Actress Oscar Speech

03/03/2014 at 12:25 AM EST

Cate Blanchett has delivered an Oscar encore.

The actress has won her second Academy Award, taking home the statuette for Best Actress Sunday night for her bravura performance as a boozy, fallen socialite in Blue Jasmine.

While accepting her award, the 44-year-old actress celebrated a year that saw a wealth of roles for women in film.

“As random and as subjective as this award is, it means a great deal in a year of, yet again, great performances by women,” said Blanchett, who made sure to call out her fellow nominees one by one before ending with Judi Dench, who was not in attendance.

“She’s not here tonight because at the age of 79, her film was so successful that she’s in India doing a sequel,” Blanchett said, referring to Dench’s current project, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2. “I mean, what a career that is.”

Blanchett also chastised “those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences. They are not. Audiences wanna see them, and, in fact, they make money.”

She then quipped: “The world is round, people!”

A five-time nominee, Blanchett won the Best Supporting Actress award in 2005 for playing Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator.

On Saturday, she also snagged the Independent Spirit Award for best actress for her performance in Blue Jasmine, which was directed by Woody Allen.

This year’s Oscar field for Best Actress featured a pedigreed lineup of contenders, pitting Blanchett against three past winners and a five-time nominee: Sandra Bullock in Gravity, Judi Dench in Philomena, Meryl Streep in August: Osage County and Amy Adams in American Hustle.

Jewel: ‘I Didn’t Build my Career on Looks’

Jewel: ‘I Didn’t Build my Career on Looks’

Posted by Adam

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsSINGER Jewel is grateful that she hasn’t built a career on the way she looks.

The singer says it’s her voice — not her face or body — that has made her a success.

“I’m pretty lucky. I don’t feel my career has ever depended on how I look, necessarily. Certainly in this industry I’m photographed a lot and I’m on film a lot, but I think my fans have always loved me for who I am,” she said.

“It’s weird, I never thought a snaggle-toothed, big nosed girl from Alaska would [be considered ‘hot’]. But I enjoy it, especially as I’ve gotten older. I’ve just gotten more comfortable in my skin and I wouldn’t trade what I’ve gained in my aging for what I had in my youth … that insecure, scared feeling.”

“When I first came on the scene I was probably 15 or 20 pounds heavier and they said I was the chubby Renee Zellweger. And it’s a hard thing to live through, but I was very dedicated to not developing an eating disorder and very dedicated to not becoming a drug addict because, to me, they weren’t longtime solutions and you have to go on your journey and you have to find that love for yourself.

“What’s unique about you is also the most special thing about you. I was a scared, homeless kid that wrote in my journal and put it on a record and people said, ‘I like you. I believe in you. You move me.’ It’s a remarkable opportunity.”
