The Advertising Standards Board (ASB) has dismissed claims that David Jones’ latest #ItsInYou campaign sexualises ambassadors Jessica Gomes and Juliette Barton.
The ASB has received multiple complaints over the campaign video, which aired several months ago, with viewers claiming that the clips are “sexualised” and not appropriate to be advertised on a website which can be seen by a younger demographic. (more…)
It turns out Chris Hemsworth’s sandy-haired surfer boy character wasn’t just a facade for the sake of Summer Bay, with the actor recalling the Australian surf culture his family grew up around in a new, slightly weird, short film for Vanity Fair.
Acting as a behind the scenes film for his cover shoot with the glossy, both shot by Bruce Weber, the video shows Chris laying boyishly in an unmade bed with several kittens, as you do, revealing special childhood memories including surfing legends Mick Fanning and Kelly Slater.
Unearthing his not-so-Hollywood side, the Thor actor admitted that he once shed real tears when he heard hearing that his dad had actually been out surfing with Kelly Slater. “I just started crying,” he laughed, noting that he missed out on the fun because he had “theatre studies practice”.
Apparently Kelly and Chris are now good friends, though, because dreams really do come true, however, the Aussie actor claimed he never told Kelly the story. Ah, we’re afraid it’s out in the open now, Chris.
He also recalled a time surfing with ELLE cover star Aussie Mick Fanning, who is world-famous for battling off a shark during a surfing tournament, saying, “We were surfing with Mick Fanning at my place and he was saying how sharky the water felt and we said, ‘Oh no, it’s great. It keeps the crowds away.” Cue awkward pause, laugh and “Never again,” followed by Chris upping the kitten weirdness with a shark costume.
Watch it all for yourself in the video below, and, please hold your fan-girl applause until the very end.

Down under’s most famous pocket-sized sisters (no, not The Veronicas) have performed together for the first time in 30 years, with Dannii and Kylie Minogue taking to The X Factor stage for a holiday-inspired, all-camp duet of “100 Degrees” during last night’s finale.
Kylie kicked things off, owning the staircase in a pink mirrored dress reminiscent of a 90s-girl’s beaded door curtain, before Dannii emerged in a matching ensemble (but blue) and magic truly happened for the first time since Young Talent Time.
Edie Parker’s famous bags are as ubiquitous on the red carpet as mermaid gowns. Her enamel box clutches come adorned with emoji graphics or personalized names, making them a street style favorite as well. They’re so popular, in fact, a brand is knocking off Edie Parker designs at a tenth of the price, according to a recent lawsuit. Filed last week in New York, the complaint accuses Box Bag and agent Beth Smolen of selling “handbags that parasitically copy Edie Parker’s protected handbag trade dress and copyrighted designs,” Fashion Law reports.

What can’t Jennifer Lawrence do…besides walk in a straight line without tripping? The acclaimed actress also happens to be a great dancer and a pretty good singer. Her song “The Hanging Tree” from the Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack sold over a million copies and landed on Billboard’s Top 15 list.
She’s showcasing her singing talent once again with a new tune “Deep in Meadow” on the Mockingjay, Part 2 soundtrack. The techno remix, mixed by Baauer (“Harlem Shake”) is emotional, haunting and dance party-ready. *Shimmies*
