Dear Fashion World: We Need to Talk About Your Brigitte Bardot Obsession

Dear Fashion World,

We need to have a little talk. Are you sitting down? OK, good. This won’t be easy, but it’s time we discussed your obsession with Brigitte Bardot. We get that you love beautiful icons — who doesn’t? Just look at Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. Stunning! Lauren Bacall? Loved her. But we’re going to have to put our foot down with Bardot, no matter how gorgeous she was. And there’s a very good reason for this. She hates you.

Did you know that Bardot has been tried and convicted five times for inciting racial hatred against Muslims? It’s true. She claimed Muslims were “destroying our country by imposing their ways.” 

Did you also know she hates gays? In fact, according to The Guardian, in her book Un cri dans le silence, Bardot calls gays “fairground freaks.” Which makes us wonder: Why would anyone in our industry support someone who was anti-gay? Seems absurd when you think about it. 

But wait, there’s more! The aging former film star also dislikes teachers. Teachers. And she doesn’t dislike them because of random stories of abuse on the news. No, she hates them because of appearance. They have greasy hair and are unkempt, apparently. (We disagree, obvs.) We’re all for freedom of speech, but we can still choose those we hold up in adulation. Why put someone who despises so many on a pedestal? (more…)

Brooke Testoni Flies to 2014 Telstra Perth Fashon Festival Exclusively for Morrison

Haven’t you heard? Fashion bloggers attend runway shows exclusively now. They’re that much of a big deal. At least label Morrison thinks so, inviting Brooke Testoni   to exclusively attend its showcase last night at Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

She nailed the red-carpet look in an emerald-green Morrison dress, with divine silk draping falling from the layered halter neckline. To add a little bit of edge and casual flair to an after-five dress, Brooke opted for laser-cut black booties and a black leather bag which toughened up the look. (more…)

Iggy Azalea Looked Fancy in Fur on the Streets of London

Iggy Azalea toned it down while out and about in London yesterday, opting for an outfit which stuck to a neutral colour palette. It was a refreshing change for the Australian rapper, who regularly sports harsh blacks, popping neons and funky embellishments while being ‘fancy’ on stage.

I-G-G-Y opted for basic white jeans, but kept up her usual quirk in an outlandish sweater. Although the top was a simple beige, there was a lot going on with a chest zipper, hoodie-like front pocket and a mixture of grey, black and brown furs working as sleeves.

Thankfully she pared it back with simple accessories, like a white handbag, nude pointed-toe shoes and cat-eyed tortoise shades, because any more cray-cray pieces could’ve been overkill.

Me & T Studio Beauty Bar Opens in Toronto

Me & T Salon

Me & T Salon

Getting pampered and primped comes at a price, but the alternative (dingy nail bars with dodgy equipment) can make you feel like you’re putting your health on the line. But with the opening of Me & T Studio in midtown Toronto, affordable and healthy beauty services are now a gorgeous reality.

Opened by Shawna Rao, a registered critical care nurse with 15 years of experience practicing in Canada and the U.S., Me & T Studio is the kind of clean and stylish salon you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine. The gray, pink and black decor is modernist and sleek, while the attention paid to hygiene and cleanliness is unmistakable. There are no spray jet tubs or jars of used nail files here; only ceramic soaking tubs, and you’re free to take your nail buffer and file home with you after the treatment. 

Whether you’re looking for a standard polish job, custom colour blending or nail art (seriously, these technicians can actually paint a portrait on your nails), each manicure and pedicure comes with a complimentary paraffin wax treatment. Me & T is also renowned for its lash extension services that use the NovaLash and Xtreme Lashes brands as well as custom spray tanning that’s done discreetly by hand in a private room and customized to your needs.

The cherry on top: The extensive complimentary candy selection at reception that only serves to sweeten your beauty deal.

Me & T Studio is located at 1568 Yonge St., Toronto.

It’s not every day that you receive an invite from Sir Philip Green asking you to view a collection during London Fashion Week. So, when a shiny iridescent pink invite landed in our post box asking us to view the new Design Collective for Evans, how could we resist?

It’s the first time that the plus-size retailer has showcased during LFW and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The show featured full outfits from the main collections of Clements Ribeiro, Giles Deacon, Hema Kaul, Jamie Wei Huang, Lulu Liu and Vita Gottlieb that have all been reworked to fit a fuller figure. If that wasn’t exciting enough, we also got the opportunity to see the designs by Yvonne Shu Yao, the winner of the third Cut for Evans contest as well as several pieces exclusively created by Evans’ own in-house design team. Evans’ own designs were inspired by light and reflection with the aim of being able to easily layer up or down. (more…)
