If you’re a huge fan of Naomi Watts’ look, well, you’re in luck, because Aussie retailer Sportscraft have just released a new limited-edition collection inspired by the Aussie actress.

Obviously her red-carpet game is extravagant and on-point, but this particular range is “beach ready and travel approved” to exude Naomi’s everyday style, featuring everything from casual monochromatic striped maxis to breezy shirt dresses, sleeveless trench coats and slouchy knits.  (more…)

Oscar de la Renta Tells PETA It Did Not Sell Elephant Skin Shoes

After attacking Beyonce’s shoe maker, yelling at Kim Kardashian and slamming Stella McCartney, PETA is setting its sights on a new target: Oscar de la Renta. The organization claims a pair of ODLR shoes, currently for sale on Gilt, uses the skin of elephants. “By selling shoes made of elephant skin, both Gilt and Oscar de la Renta are complicit in the slaughter of these intelligent, social, and empathetic gentle giants,” a post on PETA’s website read. “It is guilt by association: Make sure that Gilt and Oscar de la Renta know it by sending a letter to the companies today!”

A representative from the fashion house immediately shut down the accusations, claiming the shoes were simply mislabeled: “This afternoon, PETA posted on its Web site a claim that Oscar de la Renta used elephant skin in our accessories products. In fact, this is not true, as Gilt Groupe has acknowledged that this resulted from them incorrectly labeling one of our products as being made from 100 percent elephant skin. They have acknowledged the mistake and have moved to correct it across their site. Unfortunately, many of their users have seen this and understandably are outraged, as are we. We do not and will never use elephant skin in any of our products.” 

PETA now claims it will remove the damning post from its site. There’s no telling what the bad press may have cost the fashion house in terms of sales and reputation. At least women wearing Oscar de la Renta are no longer in danger of getting drenched in red paint.

Adele’s cat-eye look is iconic but she is just as stunning without it. She goes makeup-free on the cover of Rolling Stone this month, sporting damp hair and a terry cloth robe. The striking cover accompanies an intimate story, where she opens up about her relationship with partner Simon Konecki and their 3-year-old son Angelo whom she says bosses her around: “He’s the only person that tells me no. He completely rules me. He’s the boss of me, and it’s so funny for other people to watch, because I’m the boss of everything in my work life.” (more…)

Christian Dior’s Eyewear Campaign Appears to Forecast the Future (Forum Buzz)

Raf Simons hasn’t even officially exited 30 Avenue Montaigne yet and we’re already seeing subtle changes to Christian Dior’s advertising concept. The brand’s eyewear campaign for Fall 2015 was shot by the provocative and the sometimes controversial photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Out is minimalist lensman Willy Vanderperre, in favor of a more alluring and colorful image with Texan beauty Vanessa Moody.

Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members were left bored by the outcome. “They are already making a transition after the recent news. I don’t know if the choice of photographer is an indication of the future creative direction, but M&M for Dior is so weird. Even more so, with such a boring result,” discredited Lola701 straight away.

“Boring and lifeless. I’m so glad that Raf is out!,” hailed narcyza with forum member Nomar echoing, “Boring and safe.”

Everyone else, however, liked the stark shot. “Ow, Mert & Marcus do Dior? I’m on board,” shared an interested Street a Licious.

Mepps certainly was a fan of the image, defending, “What do people expect from an eyewear ad? An attractive person wearing a pair of shades is never gonna be that interesting. This ad is perfectly fine, for its purpose.”

“I’m just happy to see a model. Even though Vanessa doesn’t really excite me, great for her, I guess,” congratulated simon.

“I think it’s a gorgeous image. The colors really speak to me and Vanessa has great lips,” pointed out as equally as content anlabe32.
