You Can Be an Amateur Runway Model in Condé Nast’s First Ever Video Game ‘Fashion Hazard’

It's a video game for the rest of us! Strut your way down the runway with out the shame of feeling like a Fashion Hazard.

As of today, there’s a new video game for young girls where you get to pretend to be an up and coming runway model navigating the fashion industry, and it was created by Condé Nast.

It’s called Fashion Hazard, is available for the iPhone and iPad, and is the prestigious media company’s first (and surprising) foray into gaming. And yes, we played it!

As you can probably tell by the name, Fashion Hazard is not for the faint of heart and rather than glamorize the modeling world, portrays it as the dangerous and cut-throat business it really is–sort of. There are no pervy photographers, drugs or agents pressuring you to lose weight. But! While walking on a very busy runway, you do run the risk of stepping on snakes, getting hit by cups of coffee and tripping over fallen models. Our take? It’s like a quirky fashion-y and totally ridiculous version of Temple Run.

For example, Ellie Redburn, the avatar you start out as, is a small town girl from Lawrence, Kansas starting out at the bottom of the New York fashion industry’s totem pole. Will she be the next Karlie Kloss or will she fall off the runway (something I did many times while playing) and be forgotten?

Another fun quirk: the way the models walk. It’s something like this. They also pose at the end of the runway in a way that no one has done since the ’90s and looks more like models who look like they just farted than, say, Cindy Crawford.

I barely played long enough to get to London, but by successfully gaining “achievements” and “bling” and dodging flying objects, Ellie Redburn can advance from city to city, revealing new details about her backstory and making her way to the fashion pinnacle that is Paris (and rapidly sucking the life out of your iPhone battery in the process). After that, you get to become a different model, like a glamorous brunette named Le Tigress (yes, that’s really a character).

Condé Nast hopes Fashion Hazard will fill a niche for girls who want a game with a feminine aesthetic and action-filled agility challenges typically found in more masculine games. The game is also ripe with potential for collaborations and product placement. For example, is it too late for a tie-in with Tyra Banks’ Modelland? Maybe after the Paris level, the model goes there and gets a smize? The possibilities are endless, really.

You can watch the awesome trailer for Fashion Hazard below and download it from the app store for 99 cents.

Condoleezza Rice Makes Her Modeling Debut for the NFL’s New Lady-Targeted Line

Home girl Condie Rice is the biz cause she can do it all even as the face of NFL’s New Lady-Targeted really!

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is back–but it’s got nothing to do with the current presidential race or another 30 Rock cameo (we know… sad). Actually, Condi’s making her modeling debut for the freshly revamped womenswear line of NFL apparel–as in, fitted football jerseys. The campaign, dubbed ‘It’s My Team,’ also features Melania Trump, Serena Williams, and other football-lovin’ ladies from various vocations.

Because while we’re all getting amped up and stressed out about the upcoming fashion month, a large percentage of the country is getting amped up and stressed out about September’s arrival for another reason: Football season. And now more than ever, there’s an overlap between fashion and football (really). According to the New York Times, women account for a full 45% of the NFL’s overall fan base–and the NFL believes a good portion of those women’s wardrobes have been lacking in fashion-forward football gear. And while the thought of leather boots boasting the Dallas Cowboys logo makes us cringe in our Chelseas, we’re actually pretty stoked to see the NFL-inspired tee Georgina Chapman is releasing next month.

But back to Cleveland Browns fan Condoleezza, who claims in the campaign that she “never miss[es] a game or a chance to show off [her] team colors!” Actually, an image search of Ms. Rice shows that she rarely ever makes public appearances wearing either dark brown or orange–save for one orange dress she donned at Wimbledon last year. (The Internet never lies, Condi!) But apparently, she was actually engaged to a football player in the ’70s. See? Maybe not such a random choice after all.

So does Condi Rice wearing a fitted football jersey make you want to get out there and toss a pigskin around or what?
