The Daily Telegraph reports that the terminated relationship was confirmed over the weekend. “Although we are not continuing our contract with Rachael Finch at this time, she will not be replaced,” the Speedo spokeswoman told the publication. “We’ve enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Rachael and she will always be a part of the Speedo family.” (more…)
The internet got a little excited last week thinking that Cate Blanchett had been in ‘many’ relationships with women, but the Australian actress has cleared up speculation about her sexual orientation at Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 17.
Variety magazine recently published an article which said Cate had “many” relationships with women but that she didn’t “elaborate” on the topic. However, that’s not really how Cate remembers the interview going down.
“From memory, the conversation ran: ‘Have you had relationships with women?’ and I said, ‘Yes, many times. If you mean I’ve had sexual relationships with women the answer is no,’ but that obviously didn’t make it to print,” Cate clarified at Cannes Film Festival over the weekend. (more…)
After spending the past week teasing image after image of all her famous homies appearing in her new music video, Taylor Swift finally premiered “Bad Blood” at the start of the Billboard Music Awards. As promised, the video was full of famous people (mostly women) doing badass things.
Taylor and her celebrity cohorts seem to all be part of some underground secret agency of bionic women. The music videos had all the celeb cameos it promised – Karlie Kloss and Tay Tay box it out in a rink, Taylor and Lily Aldridge fight one-on-one in a snow-filled chamber, Elie Goulding shoots an enormous gun. There were also appearances from Mariska Hargitay and Cindy Crawford, whose brief presences were all too welcome.
But for all the hype around the video, would we call it groundbreaking? Well it was definitely entertaining but for all the hype, we expected just a bit more. But still – it’s good celebrity fun and you can always count on Taylor to bring that to the table.
This fall’s next major designer/fast fashion collaboration was just announced on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet. Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing just let the world know that the French fashion house is teaming up with Swedish retailer H&M for a collection.
With Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn in tow, Rousteing explained that their looks, which we would have otherwise guessed were true blue Balmain, were from the forthcoming collaboration with the retailer. And from the looks of this preview, it’s going to be good. Jenner was clad in a pair of black pants and over-the-knee boots with a pearl-encrusted black jacket, clearly a less-expensive version of the black tuxedo jackets the house offered for Fall 2012. On Dunn (also in tall boots), a navy blue top with sheer panels and thicker bands, embellished with gold hardware, similar to what we saw for Fall 2014. She completed the look with one of the wraparound tulip skirts we saw for the house’s Fall 2013 collection and a thick gold metal belt.
So far, it seems as if the collection will have a lot of less expensive versions of past Balmain pieces. And considering that the few looks we’ve seen already look so much like real-life Balmain, we have a feeling folks are going to go wild for this collab.
H&M confirmed the partnership on Twitter today.
Rousteing has been vocal in the past about fast fashion retailers getting “inspired” by his work for Balmain, so it comes as little surprise that he would team up with one for a collection.
Brace yourselves for five and a half months of Balmainia for H&M.
Ever since the start of 2015, we’ve noticed a decline in Vogue Spain‘s creativity. Forum members began to rant about just how mediocre and tiresome the magazine had become, but after the release of its June 2015 issue, we’re beginning to see signs of improvement. Cameron Russell makes a splash on Spanish Vogue‘s latest, captured by Miguel Reveriego with Belen Antolin on styling duties.
Forum members began to voice their opinions as soon as the cover broke. “It’s so good to finally see a Vogue Espana cover that’s true to their form! Zero gimmick, just the model, the fashion and the beauty! This is the kind of cover from them that I loved and it’s so good to see it back. Fantastic!” applauded MON.
“Much better than the previous covers,” contributed eneroenero.
Echoing the same sentiments was gossiping: “Woooow! So many good covers lately. This is amazing.”
“I love everything about this cover. But I do not like her face, she is a beautiful girl and Miguel is a great photographer but I think this is not the best shot of Cameron,” shared GlamVal, feeling a little disappointed.
Benn98 felt underwhelmed, too. “This looks really dated. I love Cameron and it’s a good cover for Vogue Spain, but it looks like something lifted from their 2000’s vault. What bothers me most is that the art direction doesn’t match what they’ve done so far,” he shared.
Also not a fan of the design was blueorchid: “Looks like Vogue Portugal…”
“I’m surprised! Cameron is always beautiful on Vogue covers, almost always flawless. What went wrong?” asked fashionlover2001.
