As a 20-year veteran of the modeling industry, Ford Direct’s Monica Watkins has a Dior campaign to her name, a longstanding relationship with Dolce & Gabbana, and most recently, a Nivea commercial to add to her portfolio.

For most, that would be enough to stay busy. But Watkins has a deep commitment to philanthropy, and through the Art in Motion foundation she started in 2008, the model has worked with orphans in Haiti, fought back against domestic trafficking in New York, and brought the work of at-risk artists to a global audience. Next up? Back-to-back Art in Motion shows at Art Basel Miami Beach and the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

A perfect hat-trick in world football (soccer) is described as a trio of goals scored by one player using the left foot, right foot, and head. In the case of magazine publishing, then a perfect hat-trick could be said to be a trio of solo editorials in a single issue with three different models represented by a single agency. Got that? To illustrate the point, Muse 28 features three stories with models from Ford, the final of which focuses on Sigrid Agren (Ford) photographed by Karry Hallihan.

Sartorially speaking, nothing channels the holiday season quite like velvet. But banish any memories of those stiff family-portrait frocks, because this year the fabric is significantly more cutting-edge. Think Proenza Schouler’s Ziggy Stardust-esque printed trousers, or Bottega Veneta’s acid-orange update to the label’s classic intrecciato clutch. Want something a little more basic? We suggest a pair of navy Vans lace-ups or a ruby-red ASOS ballerina. Click through to find something crush-worthy.

In case you were either brushing up on sustainable farming practices in Chile’s Antofagasta Region or dozing through last night’s C-SPAN2 programming and in turn missed the annual extravaganza of bejeweled modesty otherwise known as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on the CBS Television Network, then you are in luck. As it so happens the good people at CBS have posted the 43 minute program online, which includes steamy, compressed video glimpses of Maryna Linchuk (Ford), Karmen Pedaru (Ford), and Anais Mali (Ford).
