Lover Releases Third Bridal Chic ‘White Magick’ Collection

Lover might have won over Beyoncé with their graphic prints, but it’s their lace they’re known for. Now they’re giving ethereal wanderlusts and to-be bridal parties another reason to look forward to summer with part three of the ‘White Magick’ capsule collection.

‘White Magick’ sees designers Nic Briand and Susien Chong dipping into their archives to reincarnate some of their most coveted dresses from the last decade in all-white and ivory. "White Magick is a selection of our most timeless styles. The delicate femininity of these pieces embodies the spirit of Lover," said Chong. They might be timeless, but they’re also distinctly modern. Knee-length styles feature flared sleeves that partly resemble Victorian pantaloons, of which Ellery would strongly approve. Structured bodices and subtle mullet hems are also more city sleek than prairie chic.

This collection also seems to be more matrimonial than the ones released in the two previous years. That could just be because we’ve got bells on the brain, but they’re also the perfect antidote to the #worldsmosttalkedaboutwedding. These are gowns for girls who prefer to kick off their shoes at the reception rather than discuss Pilates with momager.

The collection was launched at Lover’s Strande Arcade store in Sydney yesterday, and judging by how fast the previous two sold out, you should probably get in quick to avoid nasty eBay bidding wars.

Mob Wives and 90s Teen Spirit Inspire Beaufille Summer Jewellery

I remember glimpsing Beaufille’s glimmering nuggets of jewellery at last season’s Toronto Fashion Week. While the pieces were dainty and delectable, it seems they were overshadowed a little by the clothing, which makes me think it’s high time we revisited the line before fall takes over.

The label itself is founded by two Toronto-based sisters, Chloe and Parris Gordon, who are skilled in the art of fusing femininity with rock 'n' roll culture. That much is evident in their Spring/Summer 2014 range, which features eye-catching designs with understated accents. The twosome divides the creative work evenly, with Chloé concentrating on clothing and Parris overseeing jewellery and accessories, a task she is evidently skilled in.

The current lineup, which was reportedly inspired by the renaissance and mob wives (not the Staten Island reality kind) includes pieces like The Don necklace (number 3 above) with a cross pattern inspired by old-timey flora and fauna; The Doll Parts necklace with its emblems, gemstone and metal beats (4); the darling Castle ring with its quirky turrets (2); and the amazing Rocco cocktail ring (1), which features a hidden compartment that contains an upside down set topaz. As a November baby, it's naturally my favourite.

Everything is ultra edgy and, while I do detect a throwback 90s vibe with the crosses and oxidized brass, it’s still all very fresh and offers a great mix of the modern and historic for today’s renaissance gal. Prices swing widely on the spectrum between $65 for a simple ring, $100 for the Teen Spirit ear cuff (number 5 above, an ode to Nirvana no doubt) and up to $785 for The Don necklace, which you can find at stockists in Canada and the U.S.

Natalie Westling Shows a Little Skin for the Marc Jacobs Beauty Fall 2014 Campaign

Marc Jacobs Beauty has just dropped the cosmetics brand's Fall 2014 campaign, and it's a goodie. Photographed by David Simons, rising star Natalie Westling is shown with an electric blue smoky eye and pale, pale skin. Although the bright, shimmery eye makeup looks striking together with the her dark red hair, Westling's skin is what stands out most about this ad. 

The model is photographed with what appears to be a light dusting of foundation or powder — some may even be blended onto her lips — but apart from that, her skin is pretty much naked. Whatever retouching was done on this image, it must have been minimal, because you can practically see Westling's pores! It's almost NSFW. 

As tFSer Nepenthes put it, "I appreciate the fact that you can see her skin texture, unlike so many other beauty campaigns."

Internet is #NotHappy with the Feathered Headdress Pharrell Wears on the Cover of ELLE UK

In ELLE UK's own words, as quoted by IndianCountryNews (the copy has since been revised): "We persuaded ELLE Style Award winner Pharrell to trade his Vivienne Westwood mountie hat for a native American feather headdress in his best ever shoot."

Best ever? Nope, not even close. The whole Internet has spent years begging the fashion industry to pleeeasse stop treating feathered headdresses like 'it' accessories, but the message still hasn't gotten through. This time, though, the outrage has a hashtag: #NotHappy, riffing on the performer's popular hit, "Happy." The fashion industry loves hashtags; maybe now they'll #finally take notice?

Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott Photograph Second La Perla Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

After photographing Cara Delevingne, Malgosia Bela and Liu Wen for the S/S 2014 campaign, Turkish duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott are back shooting La Perla's Fall 2014 ads. Liu Wen is rumored to also be returning for the brand's new campaign, but Delevingne and Bela have been replaced by models Daria Strokous and Mariacarla Boscono. Both girls aren't strangers to the lens of Mert & Marcus; Mariacarla has shot numerous fashion stories and campaigns with the duo and Daria shot Gucci's Pre-Fall campaign back in 2013.

"Daria's sex appeal grows on me this time. She embodied sexy in her particular way," comments LRlovesDaria.

Anlabe32 seemed shocked at how well both girls embodied the lingerie aesthetic: "Lovely campaign. Both women aren't exactly mainstream lingerie models, but they do look sophisticated sexy here."

"Totally. These images are stunning. I wouldn't really recognize Daria's as a lingerie campaign right away, but she does look very glamorous and sexy. And MCB looks hot, too. Very nice. Great casting and great concept, I love it!" replied Psylocke.

"In love with La Perla campaigns. Great casting! It's very sexy, tasteful and the models look spectacular! I mean…Wow," enthused fashionlover2001.
