While Brazilian model Flavia De Oliveira may not have a household name like her other national cohorts, she’s carved out quite a career in the world of fashion. Now at age 25, this native of Londrina, Brazil has worked for Victoria’s Secret, Chanel, Dior, Michael Kors, Dolce and Gabbana– pretty much all the top names in style. However, we’re not so interested in the clothes she models, per se, but the tall, tan, young and lovely woman behind them…

You can’t avoid death or taxes, you should never drink or smoke too much but you can never, ever have too much Kate Moss. StyleCrave’s favorite British beauty just keeps on posing, and the fashion world keeps on snapping away. This photo set with famed photographer Craig McDean shows just how venerable (but certainly not vulnerable) Miss Moss truly is. She’s not going anywhere, and as long as she’s in front of the camera, neither are we… [more at touchpuppet]

One of the fashion world’s most respected, most ballsy photographers made Australian Abbey Lee Kershaw his muse for Vogue Japan 2009. Photographer Terry Richardson was the man behind the Sweet Child of Mine editorial for Vogue Nippon, a set of black-and-white stills with a PG-rated take on this photographer’s style. The 22-year-old Abbey Lee is as sexy, as edgy as usual, and the emotion captured by Richardson maintains his signature. More after the jump…

Dutch fashion model Lonneke Engel dressed down for a stylish summer beach shoot with photographer Marcus Ohlsson. We certainly wouldn’t mind prancing around the beach with Miss Engel, who now at 28 years old has been modeling for over 16 years. We’ll have to forgive the fact, however, that she dated famed magician and douchebag David Blaine. It’s okay, Lonneke. As soon as we figure out how to pronounce your name we’ll lay the charm on something fierce.

Hottest European Models - Everyone knows models are hot, but few of us ever stop to learn more than that — and for some reason they’re all from the same place, they’re all European Models. It may come as a surprise that the photogenic babes splashed across magazine covers and billboards have home countries, interests, hobbies, and a life story wholly separate from knockout looks. So today, we will take a look at 15 of Europe’s hottest models, how they got their start, and (in some cases) what their lives consist of while not on runways or behind cameras.

Here at StyleCrave, we love Caroline Winberg. We’ve covered her every chance we’ve gotten thus far, and thanks to photographer John Akehurst, we’re doing it again. This time, the 24-year-old Swedish stunner is dressing down in high fashion, bringing her sultry, suggestive look to cool colored clothing and second skin lingerie. While your editor may be partial to brunettes, blondes certainly don’t get much better than Miss Winberg… [johnakehurst via fashiongonerogue]

Supermodel Eva Herzigova is proof that Czech women can age as finely as their country’s craft beer. At 36, Miss Herzigova is still in high demand in the world of high fashion, constantly working on shoots like this one for French Elle Magazine. While 36 may not be old to the layman, it is far beyond the twilight of most model’s careers. We’re glad Eva is still en vogue, we certainly don’t mind looking at editorials like this…

American Apparel Ads or Porn?: American Apparel Ads have gained a cult status of their own, just like the clothing brand itself. Unabashed in their sexuality, American Apparel‘s ads push the envelope of creativity, decency, and even the standards of advertising in the modern world and even hire porn stars like Faye Reagan to pose for them. Just recently, an American Apparel ad was banned by the ASA in London, for purportedly showing a partially nude model that was depicting an underage person. In our opinion, the ad in question is tame compared to the sheer body of beautiful work done by the AA ad crew. To celebrate their work, we put together a list of the 50 sluttiest American Apparel ads of all time. Please note, these ads are likely not safe for work (unless your job is awesome, like ours).
