Ireland's company earned $2 billion last year. (Araya Diaz/WireImage)The richest supermodel in the world is not Gisele Bundchen or Heidi Klum or Kate Moss -- or anyone who has walked a runway in at least the past decade. It's 48-year-old Kathy Ireland. Forbes reports that the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl's company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide -- which manufactures 15,000 items ranging from clothes to home furnishings to fitness videos -- raked in a jaw-dropping $2 billion dollars last year. Ireland's cut? A cool $350 million. In comparison, just behind Kathy Ireland Worldwide is domestic diva Martha Stewart, whose company earned $900 million last year -- that's over a billion less than the supermodel-entrepreneur's company!Read More »from Kathy Ireland: Richest Supermodel in the World
Nicki Minaj in Vogue. (Steven Klein/VOGUE)It costs a lot to look like Nicki Minaj. The 29-year-old rapper is as well-known for her Barbie-inspired costumes and cartoonish makeup as she is for her seven Top 20 songs -- and it's all a part of her act. Growing up in Queens, New York, the Trinidadian-born Minaj (born Onika Maraj) didn't have much money or style -- "I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans" -- but she did have big aspirations. After getting a makeover from a woman who she viewed as "larger than life" because she wore heels and "lots of makeup," Minaj made the transition from tomboy to the blueprint for what she is today. "I had never seen myself made up before," the "Super Bass" rapper tells Vogue in its March issue — in which she's painted blue and wearing a cotton candy-esque wig. "I didn't want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl."Read More »from Nicki Minaj: I Spent $50K a Month on Shoes

Yu Tsai/EsquireThe Jon Hamm profile in the March issue of Esquire may be long, but, sadly for us fans of the 40-year-old old actor, it doesn't share all that much information about the guy. The author mostly looks back on his golf outing and car ride with the "Mad Men" star and makes up some jokey facts about him, like, for example, that Hamm owns four eagles. He does not.Read More »from Jon Hamm Isn’t Really a Mad Man

Kate Moss plays a bad girl in new W. Steven Klein/WAnd then, good Kate. Steven Klein/WRead More »from Kate Moss Balances Good and Evil for W Photo Shoot
Her face is one of the most famous in the modeling world, but Kate Moss is almost unrecognizable in the March issue of W. In dual covers, she embodies good (in lace Vera Wang with an Erdem "habit") and evil (in Gucci's silk georgette dress ). And strangely, she's missing her eyebrows in both of them. The accompanying 12-photo fashion spread, photographed by Steven Klein, is just as bizarre. In each photo, Moss is either decked out in white or black, depicting good or bad.
