Supermodel Elle Macpherson marries billlionaire

Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson tied the knot with her billionaire boyfriend Jeffrey Soffer in Fiji, according to People.

Macpherson, currently the host of Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model, married Soffer, a Miami real estate developer, in July. “Jeff and Elle eloped a month ago,” a source shared with People. “They wanted to keep it a secret.”

The 49-year-old supermodel nicknamed “The Body” has two sons with ex-boyfriend Arpad Busson, and was previously married to Gilles Bensimon.

Vogue bans too-skinny models from its pages

Vogue magazine, perhaps the world’s top arbiter of style, is making a statement about its own models: Too thin is no longer in.

The 19 editors of Vogue magazines around the world made a pact to project the image of healthy models, according to a Condé Nast International announcement Wednesday.
