The 35-year-old beauty looked to the luxe label’s Spring 2015 collection for the get-up, opting for a navy drop-waist dress with metallic panelling to take the piece from day to night. (more…)
All eyes were on transgender beauty Andreja Pejić last night, as she closed Josh Goot’s Autumn 2015 showcase for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF).
The Bosnian-born, Australian-raised model stole the limelight in a sleek strapless dress, featuring a sexy front split which showed some leg. Even though other pieces in the collection boasted beautiful, bright florals in cobalt blue, aubergine, forest green, mustard yellow and more, Andreja didn’t need all the bells and whistles to be noticed by the crowd.
Her fierce looks backed by an amazing story, including her gender reassignment surgery last year, was enough to captivate the audience, regardless of the other big-name models like Montana Cox, Samantha Harris and Ollie Henderson who also walked the runway. (more…)
After years of groveling, Kanye West has finally gotten at least a few members of the fashion set to give him all the pats on the head he’s been begging for. All it took was a little sucking up. But as he gains fans in the fashion world, he’s losing fans in the music world.
The rapper is scheduled to headline the Glastonbury Festival this summer alongside the Foo Fighters and Lionel Richie (random, but OK), but not everyone is pleased about it. A change.org petition is calling for the rapper to be removed from the Glastonbury lineup.
“Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world,” the petition, authored by Neil Lonsdale reads. “We spend hundreds of pounds to attend Glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.” The petition references Yeezy’s awards show outbursts over musicians winning awards over some of his personal friends (like Beyoncé), and asks the rapper to open up and choke down a taste of his on medicine. “Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music… he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving! Let’s prevent this musical injustice now!”
The petition is already over 69,000 signatures strong and quickly nearing its 75,000 goal. Londsdale told NME he initially started the petition as a joke, but it looks like people are genuinely feeling his sentiments since it has already garnered so many signatures. As for the rest of the singers? Well, they just aren’t into Kanye’s attitude in general.
Several supporters of the petition offered reasons why they were signing.”Kanye West represents all that is bad with the current cult of celebrity – he gains notoriety by acting like a complete tool – he disrespects all other musical forms except his own (and maybe Beyoncé),” one signer wrote. “The more people book him and listen to him will only encourage him and his ilk to line their pockets by acting like tools.”
Perhaps the most succinct and response to the petition: “He’s a gay fish.”
We doubt that Glastonbury will change their decision to have Mr. West take the stage. Besides, this overwhelming response is just ripe for an onstage monologue from Yeezy on how festival goers don’t respect his artistry. Who would want to miss that? Or, better yet, a possible encore of this:
But whether you’re for or against Kanye, his performance will be an interesting one indeed.
Amal Clooney is now a member of the Hollyweird elite whether she likes it or not, and it looks like she’s been making some famous friends along the way. According to Rande Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s hunky husband, Ms. Clooney and his wife have become the prettiest and smartest pair of BFFs in the world.
Mr. Gerber himself is quite good friends with George Clooney, and attended the couple’s wedding back in September as one of the best men. Amal and Ms. Crawford have also become pals themselves as a result. “They are very compatible: both strong, intelligent, committed women,” Gerber told the Evening Standard. The two famous couples also vacation together in two houses on one property in Mexico.
We bet those in-pool chicken fights between the couples must be epic.

Give us the right cover girl and we’re on board. Vogue Portugal manages to overwhelm our forum members this time around, tapping Jacquetta Wheeler as its April 2015 cover star. Photographed on location playing the role of a journalist, Jacquetta sports military-inspired pieces, from suede shirts and pants to camouflage jackets. The British beauty, who was dubbed “Model of the Millennium,” was shot by Frederico Martins and our forum members are head over heels over the outcome.
“What a lovely surprise to see Jacquetta, I did not see that coming,” raved KateTheGreatest within seconds of the cover surfacing on our forums, kicking off the discussion on a high note.
“Lovely to see Jacquetta and she looks really good,” gazebo admired moments after.
Also full of praise was marsnoop2, who was quick to share, “Original content, I love it!! Yay, Vogue Portugal!”
“Vogue Portugal is that you?” Oxymore questioned, in shock that the magazine had produced such a fantastic cover.
MON shared the same sentiments: “It makes me happy seeing this! Look how far they’ve come from their reprint covers with horrendous layouts! It’s not a fantastic cover but it’s definitely not a bad one. We’ve all seen worse.”
We’ve been lucky enough to be treated to the cover story, too! “Vogue Portugal is getting better and better. I like her ed and also the cover. The sixth shot would also make a beautiful cover for Vogue Portugal,” suggested fluxxx.
Are you as pleased as we are to see Jacquetta? Join the discussion here.
Wearable tech is all the rage and Gucci and will.i.am will not be left behind in the scramble to enter the emerging market. The pair has unveiled its project – the i.am+ and Gucci Smartband, which they debuted today at Basel World 2015.
The device, which Mr. i.am calls a work of “fashionology” (that’s fashion and technology) can send and receive phone calls, emails and text messages, has a personal assistant feature, a fitness component and can access maps, take pictures, hold video chats and even has space for music files.
The i.am+ and Gucci is not dependent on other technology– it’s not connected to a particular smartphone and has a sleek, minimal look. Will.i.am and Gucci’s Smartband is being unveiled a week after Apple introduced its own wearable tech item, the Apple Watch, which will be available April 24 and can cost you anywhere between $349 and $17,000.
We still don’t know when the i.am+ x Gucci device is going to launch, but it is definitely going to be one of the many wearable watch items competing for dominance in the face of Apple’s impending launch.
