GAP to Open 3 New Australian Stores by 2015

Following OrotonGroup’s acquisition of GAP Australia late last year, the company has now revealed it will be opening three new stores by 2015. As reported by Ragtrader, the stores will be opening from October through to December in Sydney suburbs.

The first will open in the redeveloped hot property of Macqaurie Centre on October 16, along with other big-gun international retailers like H&M, Zara and Uniqlo. November will see the opening of GAP in Westfield Miranda, but Westfield Parramatta will house the biggest GAP store in Australia to date when it opens in December.

GAP launched in Australia back in 2010 but currently has only three stores, with two in Melbourne and one in Sydney’s CBD.

Andreja Pejic Had a Fantastic AMA Session on Reddit

On Monday, we were all treated to perhaps one of the best AMAs on Reddit: Model Andreja Pejic fielded questions from fans for an hour, with questions ranging from modeling and her career to transitioning from male to female. It was a wonderfully supportive discussion — kind of surprising given Reddit’s reputation.

We rounded up some of our favorite questions and answers, and have become even bigger fans of Andreja after this.

Which are easier and/or more fun to model, men’s clothes or women’s clothes?

Which is easier – well I can only speak for my personal experience, I was always drawn to more feminine things, so I felt a lot more comfortable in women’s clothes and enjoyed them more. But there’s something really cool about dressing as the opposite gender too. So I’ve enjoyed both.

What is your daily eyebrow maintenance routine? They look amazing!

Thank you!

Well I don’t mess with them TOO much because bushy eyebrows are very much in right now. I just have a beautician that cleans them up, every month I would say? But it’s very minimal. The key is minimal.

Since you’re probably the only person who truly knows, how would you say the treatment differs between male and female models in the industry? Have you noticed any dramatic changes?

Yeah, there’s a big difference between how male models & female models are treated.

Definitely female models are at a higher level in the industry, it’s a business, so women definitely dominate. I think male modeling is still developing and to be a male model is still developing, whereas to be a female model is very much developed.

Wanna go out with me? I’ve got a coupon for the Olive Garden.

Hahaha!

I like Red Lobster better.

What do you think people misunderstand most about transgender people today?

I would say the fact that we are human beings like anyone else, and we strive to have happy and fulfilling lives, like anyone else. And that we are like everybody else.

Hi Andreja, another big fan of yours here. My question is what’s your favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory is the first time I received a Barbie from a neighbor, because I kept begging my mom to buy me a Barbie, I never got one, so my neighbor donated one to me. So that was a nice.

Jourdan Dunn Keeps It Casual as One of the Boys at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2015 Show

Burberry Prorsum‘s Spring 2015 show may have been entrenched in psychedelia and colour blasts, but the bystander fashions were on a whole different level as Jourdan Dunn played it down in jeans and a T-shirt while sitting in the front row, as opposed to walking the runway.

In full off duty model mode, Jourdan looked right at home dressed down in a leather biker jacket, smoky grey jeans and a basic tee as she sat in the middle of a bevy of the U.K.’s finest lads. Amongst them was radio DJ Nick Grimshaw, Harry Potter star turned hottie Tom Felton and Sam Reid, who were all there to see what Christopher Bailey will have us all lusting over for next spring. 

Jourdan finished off her look with flats, which matched the models perfectly as the likes of Suki Waterhouse and Malaika Firth happily trotted down the catwalk in trainers. Since this trend seems to be going nowhere, let us all rejoice and prepare to remain comfortable for another season.

Despite Burberry being one of the hottest shows of London Fashion Week, it’s nice to know that Jourdan can show up in her casual wear and still stand out in the front row. She certainly wasn’t the only model who sat out of the show today; Cara Delevingne attended in wonderfully publicised style with Kate Moss, her partner-in-crime for Burberry’s latest fragrance campaign.

Ariana Grande Looks Shocked to Be on Marie Claire’s October Issue

Ariana Grande has been getting a lot of attention lately thanks to her chart-topping summer hits “Bang Bang” and “Problem.” Marie Claire has taken notice and chosen the 21-year-old singer to cover its October issue, which Ariana is taking as an opportunity to let the world know that, although she may look like a minor, she’s really 21 and can drink, SO STOP CARDING HER, OK??

With her mouth agape, the singer flashes a surprised glance at the camera, making for quite an interesting shot, to say the least.

Like most other Disney Channel stars, Ariana is trying to shake her teenybopper image and, as we know, there’s no better way to do that than to sex things up. For the video of her single “The Way,” she says, “I dyed my hair back to brown. I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people.” Changing your hair, associating with rappers…sounds like the basic recipe Disney Channel stars employ to show that they’re “grown.” 

But apparently, Ariana’s been big in the britches for much longer than that. She tells Marie Claire that she always knew she wanted to do music.

“I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album. I was like, ‘Where is that Mary J. Blige collab? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session? Where is my session with India.Arie? I’m ready. Let’s go.’ I wrote this song called ‘Higher,’ and the lyrics were too sexual, too mature. And my mom was like, ‘This is a great song, but damn, you’re too young for this.’” 

Not anymore, apparently. The singer, who’s rumored to be dating Big Sean, is all grown-up — even if she doesn’t look it.
