As the David Jones vs. Myer battle continues, Myer has pulled out the big guns by enlisting Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik to front Thursday night’s Autumn 2016 Fashion Launch.
The 24-year-old will walk alongside the face of the department store, Jennifer Hawkins, as well as ambassadors Rachael Finch, Kris Smith and Jodi Anasta at Barangaroo Reserve, which will replace the show’s usual stomping ground of Sydney’s Carriageworks. (more…)
Oh, Bey, you’re just full of surprises! Her majesty that is Beyoncé Knowles just dropped a bombshell during the 2016 Super Bowl tonight, announcing that she will be going on a World Tour THIS YEAR. (more…)
Lady Gaga has once again proved her salt in the music industry during tonight’s 2016 Super Bowl, with the performance a far cry from her “Pokerface” and “Telephone” days. Much like her spine-tingling rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine“, we’re totally down with Gaga 2.0.
Her new-and-improved ballad performances aren’t the only upgrade happening on the Gaga front either, with the Grammy-winning artist and recent Academy Award winner belting out “The Star-Spangled Banner” in a look much less meaty than her iconic VMAs ensemble circa-2010.
The empowering songstress followed in the footsteps of industry greats like Whitney Houston, Cher, Neil Diamond, Beyoncé and more by landing the gig, wearing a shiny red pantsuit and sporting a do’ fit for a confrontation with Jareth the Goblin King.
Derek Zoolander and Hansel (known off the runway as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) proved their obliviousness is still strong 15 years later by talking politics on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.
With what surely has to be one of their final stops during the marketing marathon that is the Zoolander 2 promo trail, the male models stopped by the comedy show’s “Weekend Update” to discuss current US presidential candidates including “Tom Cruise” (ah, Ted Cruz), “Donnie” Trump, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, honing in on each of their personal styles.
The pair also make reference to other leaders around the world, like Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un (brother to “Kim Kardashi-un”), which will make even the most politically ignorant feel like they’re totally in-the-know. So, if you’re unsure about your level of intelligence, watch the video for yourself below for some major clarification. (more…)

It’s rare that Anna Wintour and the public see eye-to-eye on the Kardashians. She famously gave Kim Kardashian a cover, infuriating Vogue purists everywhere. But the Condé Nast artistic director may have changed her stance on the famous family in recent weeks. Architectural Digest chose Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian as its March 2016 newsstand cover stars, a move that Wintour allegedly did not approve of, according to WWD.
Anna Wintour isn’t alone in her criticism of AD‘s new cover. One glance at the magazine’s Instagram page and you’ll find comments like, “Oh I just CAN’T WAIT to hear their thoughts on architecture. Prepare to be #inspiredbyidiots” and “I feel like I can see more of their body parts than interior on this pic.” Ouch.
But Margaret Russell may have the last laugh. An AD representative told WWDthat its website saw “its biggest traffic day ever” on the day the cover image was released, not to mention a slew of new fans on social media. Perhaps Russell decided, like Anna Wintour did with Kim’s Vogue cover, that the digital boost is worth the controversy.
Burberry will send “seasonless” collections down the runway starting September of this year. They’ll present two annual shows with items available immediately after the models leave the runway. “Our shows have been evolving to close this gap for some time,” Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey told WWD. “From live-streams, to ordering straight from the runway, to live social media campaigns, this is the latest step in a creative process that will continue to evolve.”
Tom Ford is eager to close “the gap between runway and retail” as well, he revealed today in a press release. His Fall 2016 menswear and womenswear collections, showing in September, will be available for immediate purchase. “We spend an enormous amount of money and energy to stage an event that creates excitement too far in advance of when the collection is available to the consumer,” he said in a statement. “Showing the collection as it arrives in stores will remedy this, and allow the excitement that is created by a show or event to drive sales and satisfy our customers’ increasing desire to have their clothes as they are ready to wear them.” (more…)
