In her role as one of the new faces of Impulse, Bambi Northwood-Blyth has been placed in charge of the brand’s Instagram for an entire week. From September 1, the Aussie model and savvy Instagrammer will take over the social media page for a total of seven days.
The move is in conjunction with a new look and feel for Impulse, which recently launched Erin Heatherton, Zippora Seven and, of course, Bambi as the new faces of the brand. With Bambi’s Instagram following of 150K+, the decision to take advantage of the bushy-browed model’s always-rad aesthetic is a smart one.
We’re told to expect photos of Bambi’s on-the-go lifestyle with her favourite Impulse fragrances. Perhaps we’ll see a little less of her hubby, Dan Single, and a few more selfies in the week-long event. When asked about what it takes to nail a good selfie, Bambi said, “Some people say it’s about angles but I think it’s about lighting and of course a good filter.”
She added, “Long limbs help too. Erin is really good at it because she has such long arms!” Perhaps that’s why the Victoria’s Secret model has more than double Bambi’s Instagram following.
DJ duo Dem Foxes rock some pretty amazing bods, so it’s a little reassuring to get photographic proof of the pair exercising down by the beach instead of snacking away of chocolate bars. Somehow Rochelle Fox and Demi Bryant manage to make even working out look good, thanks in no small part to their brightly coloured threads by Aussie activewear label Lorna Jane.
Demi sported the black and white More T-Shirt with purple shorts, while Rochelle wore a love-heart tank tied to the side and Max Run Shorts with a multicolour waistband. To polish it all off, Rochelle pulled her hair into a side plait with the aqua-hued Weekend Visor.
It looks like we were a bit blind to the fact that you can look completely bangin’ mid-workout. So next time you find the energy to go for a beach run, take outfit inspiration from these mega babes. Bright colours and slogan tees are an apparent winner.

Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate the tasty goodness of ice cream? Olivia Palermo can’t think of a reason, stepping out for Magnum’s 25th anniversary at Catalina, Rose Bay last night, September 1. For the high-profile dinner, Olivia opted for a black midi dress by our very own Aussie designer Rachel Gilbert.
The long-sleeve number featured green embellished detail around the waist and wrists, and was teamed with a leather military-style jacket draped over Olivia’s shoulders. The accessories, including Jimmy Choo peep-toe pumps and a simple clutch, were kept bronze in line with Olivia’s makeup and jacket stud detail.
Hubby Johannes Huebl, who ventured to Australia with Olivia for Chadstone’s Icons of Style launch last week, was no where to be seen at the Magnum event. Other fashionable guests, like Nikki Phillips, Laura Csortan and Danielle Cormack, were there to keep Olivia entertained, though.
Stop everything you’re doing, because Kim Kardashian is coming to Australia. The curvy reality-star-turned-designer is coming to Sydney’s Westfield in Parramatta this September 13 to celebrate the Spring 2014 launch of Kardashian Kollection.
Kim will be making the long flight down under to meet and greet her fans, but to get up close to the one and only you’ll have to make a Kardashian Kollection purchase between August 26 and September 13. You’ll also get a signed photo to hang up on your wall, but only if you’re one of the first 200 devotees in line.
Take that as a warning to be there well before she arrives at 2.30pm. And please, for the love of god, don’t forget your receipt. We’d hate for you to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
20-year-old social-media-sensation and model Stephanie Smith has apparently been copping a lot of flak about her diet, because today she decided to tell her 439K+ Instagram followers why she chooses to eat meat.
“I eat meat because I love the taste and the way it makes me feel,” she wrote to her Instagram. “I’m sorry but it’s the circle of life.” Stephanie, who has modelled for the likes of Seafolly and Dotti, then went on to pull out the oldest meat-eater excuse in the book. “There will always be more meat eaters out there than vegetarians, so that raw steak will be sitting in the supermarket for sale whether I eat it or somebody else eats it.” (more…)
The Kardashian sisters announced a few weeks ago plans to expand their Kardashian Beauty range with a new line of hairstyling tools and products in partnership with Farouk Systems. When the reality sisters stamp their name on anything, it’s bound to make money and their new line is expected to rake in quite a lot of dough. Understandable, considering the Kardashians do happen to have great heads of hair — who wouldn’t want to pick up a few of their products?
So, what will it take for average Janes and Joes to get tresses like Kourtney, Kim and Khloé? Just some branded hairspray, blow-dry cream, curl cream, Black Seed Dry Oil, dry shampoo and conditioner as well as mousse. All of these products, priced between $14 and $17, will be available once the line launches. Consumers also have three styling tools — a flatiron, a three-in-one-tool and a blowdryer at $89.99 each — to choose from. But buried in all the gritty details on how much the collection is expected to make and how excited Farouk Systems founder Farouk Shami is to be working with the Kardashians were a few haircare secrets dished out by the sisters themselves.
Contrary to what you might believe based solely on their overexposure, there are things we don’t know about the Kardashian sisters. And they were only too happy to dish these very crucial and pertinent tidbits to WWD. The highlights:
- Kim regularly wears the most makeup out of the three sisters.
- Kim went four months without hair or makeup products after North West was born.
- Kim does not shampoo her hair every day. Her full regimen, in her own words: “I start out the first day with a clean blowout. The second day, I put in dry shampoo, which adds texture. Then, the third day, I sleek it and I straighten it, and then, the fourth day, I put our oil in it, and I make it a really sleek look. I might do a ponytail or a sleek bun. That’s my hair plan, and then I start over.”
- Along with regular selfies, Kim also loves hair selfies.
- Khloé only likes to take selfies if her hair is in her face.
- Kourtney and Khloé both had awful haircuts when they were younger that made them look like little boys.
- Kim slicks North’s hair back with a LOT of oil.
Honey, didn’t anyone tell you? You gotta let little Nori’s curls fly free!
