The fashion world’s obsession with Pharrell continues. Woolworths is the latest brand to tap the fashionable producer to serve as style director for a collaboration focused on sustainability.

Naturally, Williams’ Bionic Yarn company, which makes yarn from discarded plastic fibers, is involved with the project. Woolworths is looking for young South African creatives, aged 15-25 to design stylish T-shirts for the collaboration, with the theme of raising awareness about the environment. The winning designs will be printed onto the sustainable tees and sold in Woolworths stores.

Pharrell’s promotion with Woolworths also extends to a concert tour. In addition to the T-shirt contest, Woolworths is working to promote education and inviting South African school singing groups to enter a competition in hopes of being able to sing with the artist on stage.

Williams is no stranger to sustainable collaborations. He previously worked with G-Star RAW, creating a collection of cool denim pieces made in conjunction with his Bionic Yarn company.

Nothing Is More Dramatic than the Promo for the Bruce Jenner Interview

SHADOWS. LOW PONYTAILS. 80S BALLAD GUITAR MUSIC. No, this isn’t a promo for a Behind the Music for Whitesnake. It’s the teaser commercial for Diane Sawyer’s big interview with Bruce Jenner, airing April 24.

Like we said, the promos are full of shadowy silhouettes of Jenner, with Sawyer looking at him with a furrowed, reporterly brow. Jenner is expected to unveil the details of his alleged transition during the broadcast, and by the looks of it Sawyer will be doing some really close listening through the whole thing. Guess there is a lot to process. 

The broadcast promises to cover “the journey, the decisions” and “the future” for Jenner. For the past few months, rumors and whispers of Jenner’s transition have been swirling, so this interview should give us answers to those burning questions that are probably none of our business anyway.

What we really mean to say is: We’ll definitely be tuning in.

Kanye West Doesn’t Care if You Think His Clothes Are Derivative

Kanye West’s outspoken nature is what helped him rise through the ranks of the fashion industry, and it is his same no holes barred, no filter attitude (and now-everlasting bond to the Kardashian family) that keeps him in the fashion news cycle. The rapper is the subject of a profile in magazine, a piece in which Kanye explains what he’s hoping to accomplish in this new chapter of his fashion career.

To West, it’s all about bringing luxury to the masses, making fast fashion high-end. It is a goal he is slowly approaching with his Adidas collaboration (though he has said before he’s not completely satisfied with the lofty price points of the collection). One criticism Kanye has consistently faced during his time designing apparel is that what he creates looks too much like the work of the established designers he likes to wear on a regular basis. 

Well, in case you were wondering Kanye West isn’t concerned whether you think his work is derivative or not. “I would like to be influenced as much as possible,” he told Jon Caramanica. “I don’t care if you can see the influence in something, as long as I made it better.”

Whether or not Kanye’s improving on the work of other designers in his own collections is a matter of opinion, but you’ve got to hand it to him: The guy’s definitely got a distinct taste in clothing.

Anne Hathaway Lip Syncing ‘Wrecking Ball’ Will Make Your Friday

Anne Hathaway gets a lot of flack in the media, but she’s totally won us over with this epic lip syncing battle. The Devil Wears Prada actress appeared on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle, going up against her former co-star Emily Blunt. Blunt wowed the crowd with a rendition of Janis Joplin’s Piece of My Heart, but it was Hathaway’s version of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball that really stole the show.

When we say Hathaway’s turn at the mic was spot-on, we mean it. Hathaway gelled down the sides of her hair to make her ‘do look like Miley’s shaved sides look, donned a cropped white wife beater and a pair of breakaway pants that she ripped off to reveal high-waisted knickers. She got every detail down to the nails. But the big moment was when Hathaway raced to the middle of the stage and hopped onto a wrecking ball of her own, basically leaving Blunt in the dust. 

Chrissy Teigen, who is on the show as a commentator,  tweeted that Hathaway “may have moved me to tears” with her rendition.

Watch Anne Hathaway nail Wrecking Ball like a boss in the video above.

It’s Wonderful to See Arizona Muse on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar Germany (Forum Buzz)

Our feisty forum members have celebrated just about everything Harper’s Bazaar Germany delivers each and every month — the magazine’s May 2015 cover being no exception. We’re thrilled to report that Arizona Muse fronts the newly-released annual beauty issue of the German title. Photographed by Kacper Kasprzyk, the American beauty, who already has covers of Vogue Paris, Vogue Spain and Vogue Italia under her belt, gazes down Kasprzyk’s lens giving us life, while rocking her signature bob hairstyle.

“Really like this, it’s got a very summery feel. We haven’t seen much of Arizona lately,” expressed Benn98, hitting us off on a positive note the moment the cover surfaced.

“I’m waiting for Arizona to disappoint me and I’m starting to doubt if she could. This is just beautiful! It’s a simple shot that focuses on the beauty of Arizona,” MON shared.

Also in the mood for some Arizona was Style Savvy, who was quick to write, “Beautiful cover. That face is just phenomenal.”

Handbag Queen shared a similar positive opinion, too. “It’s great to see Arizona back on a cover again, have missed seeing her since she signed with Estée Lauder,” she enthused.

“Are we ready for an Arizona comeback?” asked arlekindearrabal.

“Please dear God, no,” replied gossiping, going against the tone of the thread.

Benn98 was quick to return and voice, “Don’t worry, the likes of Julia B, Joséphine, Valery, Maartje etc will still be here. Besides, Arizona is not technically on a hiatus. The amount of Vogue covers and print work she’s secured during her ‘break’ is enough to make a working model weep. I say bring her back!”

Are you as pleased as we are to see Arizona? Let us know here.
