Designer Donatella Versace, who said she was inspired by the black and white photography of the 30s, wisely selected Naomi to bring the collection to life.
From the moment she appeared on the catwalk, Naomi demanded the audience’s attention and showed why she’s still at the top of her game. Eat your heart out Vlad!

And in fresh faces….
Model Redaric Willaims is making a splash on the small screen as "Tyler Michaelson", one of the newest additions to the "Y&R" cast.
And for ladies who love a bad boy, Redaric is certainly a keeper. “I am the kid who was in the museum and had to touch the painting. That was me. I am very much so a rule breaker. When I was growing up, I was always getting into trouble.”
When asked about being labeled "sexy", Redaric told RO,
“I don’t see myself as that so I don’t think I’d ever be comfortable in something that I don’t see myself as…but I am aware of it and I’m kind of fine with it in the sense that I know that that’s what’s required for what I’m trying to do career-wise.”
Although he’s only been a cast member for a few months, Redaric is excited about joining an iconic franchise that’s been around for 40 years.
"I feel almost guilty and that’s the truth because we are doing so much celebrating,” he confesses. “There are so many parties that are going on and so many events and things that we’re doing and everybody is ‘oh, congratulations on so many years’ and I’m brand new to the show. I just got here so I feel almost guilty. I’m very appreciative and very respectful for what ‘The Young and the Restless’ has done and how long they’ve been doing what they’re doing.”

Also on newsstands…..
In the August 2013 issue of Latina Magazine, reality TV star and fitness columnist Evelyn Lozada talks about "Basketball Wives" and the infamous domestic violence incident that changed her life. Here are the highlights:
On her feelings after the violent abuse of her ex-husband during an argument:
“At that point, I knew my life would never be the same. I knew the world was going to laugh at me and be mean and nasty and blame me for everything. But I had no choice. I had to go to the hospital.”
On why she plans to start a foundation dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence called Pain Is Not Love:
“I get e-mails every single day from women who are still with their abusive partner and they’re like, ‘I need help.’"
On trying to reform her life with the help of life coach Tony Gaskins, Jr. and being re-baptized:
"Tony was talking to me about soul ties, and I felt like I needed to cut that cord [with Johnson]. I wanted to do things differently, to start over. I’m still going to be Evelyn, but I have a different vision of my life.”
