Cara Delevingne is sick and tired of the paparazzi hounding her at every turn. The model-turned-actress took to Twitter to vent about the perils of fame thanks to the harassment she faces at the hands of thirsty shutterbugs, looking for a payout over candids of the model.
Delevingne mentions she finds it difficult to live her life in her own city because of the paparazzi and issued a warning to ones that will be present during Milan Fashion Week. “I only cover my face when you are rude to me, please do not make me feel like a zoo animal,” she tweeted. (more…)
We loved attending our favourite designers’ shows during London Fashion Week Spring 2016, but one of the highlights from this season was the launch party for brand new shoe label JF London. What girl wouldn’t love a dedicated shoe party, right?
Taking place at London’s swanky Haymarket Hotel, the swimming pool was brought to life with floating garlands and candles, drinks flowed as Lion Babe performed and fashion blogger Bip Ling subsequently hit the decks. Handmade in Italy, JF London is all about making a statement with your footwear with a vibrant collection for both men and women. The brand is set to make your shoes the focal point of any outfit thanks to an eye-catching palette of hot pinks, vivid blues and a scattering of neon hues. (more…)
Victoria’s Secret knows sexy – or at least, what is considered sexy by the mainstream powers-that-be. To further assert themselves as arbiters of what is desirable in our culture, the lingerie giant has released a list of “What Is Sexy?” to pay homage to those celebrities it believes have features and assets worthy of the title.
On the list we have Chrissy Teigen with sexiest hair, Beyoncé with the sexiest bikini body, Rachel McAdams for sexiest actress and Taylor Swift for sexiest legs, which doesn’t surprise us as hers are about a mile long.
But possibly the most esteemed title was bestowed on Rihanna, who was named “forever sexy” by the lingerie retailer, and we’d have to agree. Between her saucy Instagram posts, badass attitude and penchant for posing in next to nothing (sometimes nothing at all), Riri will always ooze sex appeal.

We’ve been keeping a very close eye on Maxim magazine since Kate Lanphear took over as editor-in-chief back in 2014. Now settling in nicely to the position a year later, Lanphear has tapped the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Emily DiDonato to front previous issues and now Maxim‘s October edition serves up Isabeli Fontana. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon and giving us all sorts of flashbacks to the 90s, Isabeli makes for one heck of a cover subject.
It’s safe to say we’re head over heels. “Wow, they finally have a classy cover and Isabeli looks super sexy and beautiful here!” raved justaguy.
“I’m really really liking Maxim lately!” confessed MON right after.
Also full of praise was marsnoop2, crediting, “Maxim is absolutely incredible nowadays. The EIC took a crappy men’s magazine (although I admit I liked some of their early 2000s work) and just gave it a whole new life and the imagery they produce rivals a lot of top fashion magazines.”
“Such a nice shot, glad to see Gilles continue to work for this magazine!” Benn98 added.
AlonsoJonathan was quick to share his enthusiasm too: “What a stunning image of Isabeli. She looks GORGEOUS!”
“The only thing I dislike about Isabeli nowadays is how incredibly fake her fake boobs look. I expected them to be front and center on the cover when I first opened this thread. Glad to see the that’s not really the case, and that the styling is actually very natural, pretty and classy. The editorial is great, too. Probably the best she’s looked since 2003!” declared Psylocke.

The Business of Fashion has released its list of the 500 most influential people in the industry. Of course, there are the names you would expect to see: Anna Wintour, Cara Delevingne, Alexander Wang, Alber Elbaz, Carine Roitfeld, etc, but this year some new additions made the list, most notably Caitlyn Jenner.
BoF added the transgender activist for her status as a budding fashion icon, noting that since making her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, she’s become a big draw for designers who are keen to get her in their duds. “Jenner’s fairy tale transformation also fits with fashion’s central narrative — she is the perfect model to show how you can truly express your identity through clothes,” BoF writes. “No doubt by the next New York Fashion Week, Caitlyn Jenner will be a front row regular.” (more…)
