Model Smarts.

Contrary to popular belief, there are mannequins in the business who are so much more than just being "really, really ridiculously good-looking".

Carla Bruni can sing (and has a best-selling album).

Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum have made themselves into entire brands (which include television production).

Coco Rocha can highland dance the crap out of anyone (and did so down a Givenchy runway).

Helena Christensen helped start NYLON Magazine (and still looks 28-years-old at 41-years-old).

Cindy Crawford scored an academic scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University (before her beloved beautymark changed the definition of a super model in the '80s).

Milla Jovovich can act, sing and design (respectively, The Fifth Element, Dazed & Confused and Jovovich-Hawk)

And now model supe Sasha Pivovarova -- who is has a knack for photography and was enrolled studying art history at a Russian university -- is illustrating for Chanel, at the behest of Kasier Karl himself.

The figures in her sketch below somehow have the same alien-esque eye shape as she does, which you'll probably recognize from her six-year run as the face of Prada.

Talk about being more than a pretty face.

I'm Lovin' it: Complex Geometries got so popular with their awesome drape, hooded tees via NYC boutique Oak that they had to start their own website. Awesome.

I'm Over it: Where. Is. My. Digital. Recorder. Can't find it!!!! Not good.

Music of the Day: Here's a widely known fact -- I'm obsessed with all things French. Especially of the Parisian variety. So that explains me being into The Plasticines, an all-girl band from Paris who rock out in cool haircuts and cool clothes.
