Model Tweets: The Best of 2012 Edition
Joan Smalls Tweets Backstage Action and Coco Rocha Doubles as Liz Taylor
FashionTV brings you the latest from all the biggest fashion shows, photoshoots, and major red carpet events, but even we couldn’t keep track of all the incredible things that happened in fashion in 2012. Karlie Kloss becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio modeled while pregnant and Kate Upton on the cover of Carine Roitfeld’s new book, were just a few of the incredible items that happened in the fashion world this year.
Twitter gave us the chance to see what all the models were up to, whether they were backstage before a show or hanging out with friends. It gave us some news that made great waves in the fashion world...straight from the models themselves.
Here are some the model tweets that made an impact in 2012, both good and bad.
Joan Smalls, besides making great strides in fashion by visiting Moscow for the first time for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia and being the model to front Karl Lagerfeld’s Fall 2012 Fendi campaign, also gave us a glimpse at what goes on behind-the-scenes before a runway. FashionTV shows you what the models are up to while they’re waiting for castings, fittings, and hair and makeup preparation, but this pic just about says it all.
Here’s Smalls’ Twitter pic fo Frida Gustavsson squeezing in a nap.

Unfortunately, not everything that happened in the model world was good news. Though Project Runway host and former Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum seemingly has everything, 2012 brought some unfortunate news when the world learned her 7-year marriage to husband Seal had crumpled.

A lot has happened to top Spanish model River Viiperi this year. In March 2012, he was officially verified on Twitter with his Twitter handle. And by September 2012, he was dating hottie Paris Hilton who is 10 years his senior (He’s 21, she’s 31.). Looks like they’ll still be together into the New Year (and perhaps from now on? FashionTV hopes only good things are in the cards for these two lovebirds.)

Behati Prinsloo, one of the stars of Victoria’s Secret this year, seemed to have a grand time this year, riding mechanical bulls and dating Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala is one of the biggest fashion events of the year and always brings out the VIPs in gorgeous gowns and stellar style. Top model Coco Rocha made quite a statement herself when she decided to buy a Givenchy yellow jumpsuit worn by Elizabeth Taylor at an auction to wear to the Met Gala.

Putting my Liz Taylor Givenchy into storage for now, wondering if someone one day will get to have as much fun wearing it as I did!#MetBall

Now that we’re coming to the end of the year, FashionTV knows that the models have a lot going on (fashion weeks are just around the corner for the upcoming season) but we hope they relax for the holiday season. FashionTV wants to wish all the models a very happy holiday!
