Every model worth their salt has been in Mario Testino’s esteemed Towel Series, so it’s only fitting that the world’s most-loved fictional model has finally taken part in the project.

Acting as the series’ 100th instalment since its inception with Kate Moss, Derek Zoolander poses in a headscarf, biker vest and wrap skirt, aka “Post-Hanukka Daiye Spa look”, for the milestone shot.

Besides the black and white filter and the towel fabric, it’s not really what we’re used to seeing from this series, however, Mario has always asserted that the beauty of this project is that you can “wear [the towel] however you want”. (more…)

Swearing Is Linked to Having an Extensive Vocabulary, According to Research

We’re warned from day one that swearing is bad, but it turns out it’s actually quite a good thing to be profanity proficient. No, we’re not just cursing connoisseurs trying to get away with inappropriate language. There’s actually a study that proves the link between swearing and an extensive vocabulary, meaning all those walking thesauruses are probably big ol’ foul mouths too.

That might sound odd to you considering that swear words seem like an easier option than, you know, tame in-the-dictionary words, but research recently published in the Language of Sciences journal (Via Cosmpolitan) says otherwise.

In what we’re sure would’ve been a fun experiment, subjects were asked to say as many swear words that they could think of in 60 seconds. They were then set a non-swearing task, like listing animal names, to complete in the same amount of time. (more…)

Marie Claire Australia Launches Online Store

Fashion fave Marie Claire Australia is responding to the tough and fickle editorial landscape, having launched a brand new e-commerce site for a stronger online and brand presence, and, of course, to give the people what they want. 

The platform, dubbed Styled By Marie Claire, provides clothing and accessory collections for consumers, which have been put together by the title’s editors and fashion contributors.

“It’s another brand extension, it’s a further footprint, because our whole idea at Pacific magazines is about putting the customer first,” former Marie Claire editor and Pacific Magazines executive, Jackie Frank, told Ragtrader. “We are audience-centric rather than print-centric and whatever it is our audience wants, that’s where we need to play.” (more…)

Australia’s own Ruby Rose and fashion designer Phoebe Dahl have called it quits after two years together, E! News reports.

A source “close to the couple” told E! that distance made things difficult for the pair who had to spend so much time apart for work. “It’s completely amicable and they wish each other the best,” the source said.

Ruby and Phoebe’s tweets looking back on the past only add to these claims. “@RubyRose you have brought me to my best and I will always love you. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for us,” Phoebe wrote, followed by Ruby’s similar sentiment only one minute later. “I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of all we shared.” (more…)

With every model comes a great story of how they were “discovered” and John Economou is no exception. After leaving home at 19 and spending his nights on Venice Beach without a roof over his head, things are looking up for the Milwaukee-native now that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have helped him out with a major modelling contract.

John told Daily Mail that he was just “chilling on the beach”, aka his home, when he had the chance meeting with two of the world’s most in-demand models right now. 

They were having a picnic right near him, but were being bothered by seagulls who wanted their food. He helped shoo the birds away without realising that it was Gigi, Ansel Elgort and Kendall and her manager, Ashleah Gonzalez, who had just finished filming a commercial on Venice Boardwalk. (more…)

If you weren’t already forking out the cash for Kim Kardashian’s website, then this recent revelation may change your ways. The reality TV star has taken to her personal online platform to share her placenta plans with us all, explaining that she’ll be ingesting the stuff in pill form, down the hatch.

Although Kim admits she wouldn’t have “ever considered” eating this organ before, she explains that she’ll be encapsulating her placenta in the hopes of tackling postpartum depression, following her delivery of Saint West. 

“I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression!” she said on her personal site (via Refinery29).
