Giuliana Rancic Sports Willow, Veronika Maine While in Sydney

Guiliana Rancic is in town for Westfield’s #MostHunted Spring 14 campaign, and like a good style ambassador she’s been sporting a mix of Australian labels during her time down under.

We’re thinking Willow could definitely be a favourite of hers, as the TV personality was snapped twice in the Aussie label over the last week. She touched down in Sydney wearing a statement Willow coat, which was styled perfectly with black skinny-leg pants and Azzedine Alaïa pumps. (more…)

Bottega Veneta Taps Julia Nobis for Knot Fragrance Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Bottega Veneta released a new fragrance and the advertising campaign has just hit our forums. The fragrance entitled Knot is described as a seductive and stylish scent inspired by the Italian Riviera. The brand tapped Australian beauty Julia Nobis to front the fragrance, which hits stores this month. Photographed by David Armstrong wearing a classic black dress with her blond tresses styled in sophisticated, loose waves, Julia also stars in the commercial directed by Axel Lindahl.

Members of our forums have mixed reactions about the campaign. “Wow, Julia looks particularly awful here, the styling makes her look aged beyond her years,” commented HeatherAnne, clearly not an admirer of the campaign’s direction.

“So lifeless. That look might work for runways but she should turn it up a bit for a fragrance campaign,” criticized CharlottefromCA.

MyNameIs wasn’t a fan, either and posted, “That image is totally wrong for a perfume ad. It looks so random and unremarkable. Almost like a backstage picture. Julia looks good in the commercial, but not in the picture. They should’ve stuck with the same styling as they had in the commercial.”

“I love the dress and overall design but Julia looks off, the hair for sure looks awful to me but also the sad look on her eyes, maybe?” asked kokobombon.

Benn98 responded: “The dress really is the only redeeming feature of this campaign. I think they must’ve aimed for subtle sensuality as one can see that was achieved in the video, but the shoot doesn’t reflect that at all. It just looks dour. Glad the platinum hair is gone.”

GIVENCHYlover‘s positive comment stood out from the rest: “Sophisticated and delicate. Very Bottega.”

SELF Magazine Gets a Chic Update with the Help of Joan Smalls (Forum Buzz)

SELF magazine looks like it’s undergone a major makeover. The publication’s got a new editor-in-chief, Joyce Chang, and she’s pulling out the big guns for her very first issue. This month, Vogue cover girl Joan Smalls fronts the new issue and can we just say, chick looks amazing?

Joan looks serene, her limbs gracefully zigzagging down the cover. For the shoot, the magazine tapped Patrick Demarchelier, and we can expect to see the work of more top-tier photographers under the new leadership. This is a new era for the magazine, and it’s safe to say it’s off to a great start.

SELF‘s new look didn’t get past our forum members. “Don’t tell me this is SELF, the servicey US health and beauty magazine? Wow! This is great for them! They must’ve had a re-vamp,” Benn98 wrote.

So the Vogue cover girls are really taking over the Condé titles this month,” proclaimed A.D.C.

Some people weren’t too keen on the gray background. “It would have been an awesome cover if it wasn’t for the weird skin colour they gave her and the lack of life in her eyes,” Urban Stylin opined. 

Thrilled to see the model gracing another cover was orchidee, “And the Joan takeover continues!” Still, he had his criticisms: “Her body looks SO good, but she looks a little dead in the eyes. The grey tones in the lighting aren’t helping either. Happy for her though.”

“Flawless,” valliaddict simply stated.

This Bride Made Her Own Wedding Dress (for Just $30) During Her Daily Commute

You’ve got to give credit when it’s due, and there is probably no one more deserving than this modern hero, a Reddit user that goes by the name alkikat. Like most brides, she was on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress, but instead of shilling out thousands of dollars for a frock, she took matters into her own hands and made the dress herself. 

The whole dress took her about five months to complete, so where did she get the time in her busy schedule to put together her dream dress? Oh, just on her daily commute. Armed with just a crochet needle and yarn, alkikat made her dress by hand using a pineapple stitch. “The dress was practically free because I didn’t spend much money on it (under $30 for all of the materials including fabric for the lining) and I didn’t spend much extra time on it,” she says. “My commute time couldn’t be used for anything else anyway.”

Oh, and the best part about the dress? No dry cleaning necessary. Plus, she says she intends to wear it more than once (Keira Knightley style), in several different ways. 

Has this Redditor won the wedding dress game forever? We think so. The dress actually came out quite beautiful, almost looking like something you might pay $600 or more for at BHLDN

So alkikat, we salute you. Watch her dress come together in the time-lapse animation below.
