It’s a big day for Jourdan Dunn. Earlier this afternoon, she showed off a new hair color on Instagram, a silver-blue-purple confection conceived by Renda Attia. Dunn says the new look is for a trip to Coachella (we seriously can’t wait to see all her outfits), but a fresh new hairstyle wasn’t the only big news Jourdan had to share.
The model tweeted a photo of herself on a wifi-enabled airplane sipping a glass of champagne and encouraging fans to tweet her questions. During the session, Dunn dropped a bomb about the fate of her series, Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn, which aired on Jay Z’s Life + Times YouTube channel. A fan asked if the show would be returning for another season, and Dunn says it will – except this time, it’s going to be on TV.
We don’t know where or when the show will allegedly air, but we can’t lie – we are more than juiced to possibly see Ms. Dunn whip up tasty dishes on the small screen.
Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell are a supermodel match made in heaven, but unfortunately, Prestige Hong Kong failed to capture the duo in their best light. Back in March during the first-ever Asian amfAR fundraising gala, Prestige snatched the opportunity to tap Kate and Naomi for an impromptu shoot to coincide with the release of its April 2015 issue. Although we can’t quite understand why the mag, which launched in September 2005, delivered such a bad outcome. Naomi is pictured doing a modeling 101 pose wearing a glitzy Marc Jacobs number (the same dress she wore attending the event), while Kate sports a plain white T-shirt designed exclusively by Jacobs.
The publication didn’t receive much praise as the double covers found themselves being the latest topic of discussion in our forums. “High-class models and cheap layout. Irony,” expressed phungnam96 almost immediately.
“The amount of Photoshop on Kate isn’t even funny, she looks awful. Her eyes and the shape of her face is ugly. Naomi’s face seems to have been Photoshopped onto her body. Who approved this, come on?!” Bertrando3 questioned in anger.
In agreement was Benn98: “I’m with you. Both look atrocious, the covers I mean. Poor Kate, just look at her eyes. And the layout looks so amateur. I think it’s time these two demand photo approval.”
“These look like mall catalogs. I don’t get how you can botch such amazing women…” noted a stunned and underwhelmed orchidee.
Nomar only echoed everyone’s negative attitude, proclaiming, “Such boring covers.”

Google’s cool and all, but we could all use a search engine with a bit of a sensitive touch, couldn’t we? Enter: Let Me Drake That for You.
A spinoff of the internet site Let Me Google That for You, which allows you to simultaneously help out internet users who ask questions that can easily be Googled and throw shade at their laziness at the same time, Let Me Drake That for You is an engine that allows you to search anything – and find out how it’s related to Drake.
It’s brilliant. Creator Tyler Smith describes the engine as “Google, on fleek,” and promises to keep updating in order to bring up a wider selection of Drake-related topics. We searched our website (naturally) with Let Me Drake That for You and yup – it’s pretty darn great.
So next time you have a query about filets and truffle butter or your woes, you know where to look.
When your mother has become something of a fashion icon built in your father’s image, you’ll probably grow up having strong opinions about fashion. Such seems to be the case with North West, at least according to her mother Kim Kardashian West. The reality TV star is releasing the latest Kardashian Kids collection, and sat down with Vogue to chat about her latest endeavor. Of course, no interview with Kim about children’s clothes would be complete without a discussion about young North West’s sartorial proclivities, and Ms. Kardashian West was only happy to offer up the deets on her 22-month-old daughter’s favorite things to wear. “Every day she wakes up and says ‘shoes,’” the reality TV star said. “You have to bargain with her—before you change her diaper she needs a pair of shoes on.”
But footwear isn’t the only feature of little Nori’s accessories game. “North does love handbags,” Kardashian West told the mag. “And anything where there’s a little bit of glitz.” But much like her daddy, there are certain fashion items Nori simply cannot stand. She is not yet old enough to go on a Twitter rant about her sartorial peeves, so her mother instead takes up the cross in explaining the kind of sh*t Nori don’t like – for example, headbands. “She hasn’t been the biggest fan of keeping something on her head,” Kardashian West said.
Easter services (pictured above) must have been North’s worst accessory nightmare, then.
Our forums were set ablaze as Harper’s Bazaar unveiled a model on the cover of its latest issue. We’re thrilled to see Anna Ewers front the May 2015 edition of the mag, after the publication failed miserably last month with actress Julianne Moore. Bazaar certainly redeems itself this time around, scoring model-of-the-moment Anna, pictured on the newsstand cover below oozing a huge amount of sex appeal, while channeling Brigitte Bardot. The current face of Alexander Wang posed for Norman Jean Roy with soft, tousled waves and a smouldering smoky eye teamed with a shimmering gold dress selected by George Cortina. Bazaar nailed it, fair and square.
It should come as no surprise that our forum members were quick to express their views. “Whoa actually such a strong image of Anna that not even the horrible text layout (banner in 2015, really?) can ruin it. This is huge for her to score the cover, wow,” Miss Dalloway hailed right away.
“The reign of Anna continues! I am so thrilled to see her on the cover of US Bazaar! True supermodel in the making!” echoed Nepenthes.
Sharing the same sentiments was andypolanco: “I’m so so happy for her. She is legit the next big SUPERMODEL.”
Forum member gossiping couldn’t resist complimenting, “Anna is such a star. Her face is so extraordinary, I love it.”
For the sake of diversity, however, not everyone was completely satisfied. “The cover is boring, but I’m glad to see the real models on the covers of American mags,” noted burbuja8910.
KissMiss felt the same way. “Everything about this cover is kind of horrible but she is so beautiful and the image itself is so strong that it works. She is a new Bardot!”

H&M continues its commitment to creating a more conscious business by releasing their 13th annual sustainability report, an overview on how the company is doing in reaching its goals of creating a more environmentally sound business and measuring up to human rights and workplace equality ideals.
In 2014, H&M remained the industry’s top user of organic cotton and used the equivalent of 40 million PET bottles to create garments crafted from recycled polyester. The retailer also outlined a plan to commit to using renewable electricity where it is available by the end of this year. They are hoping that the share of renewable energy they use will leap to 80% (from 27% in 2014) in H&M-related locations, including warehouses, stores and corporate offices by the end of 2015.
H&M also boasts a very high ratio of female staff, noting that 78% of its staff are women, and that women make up 72% of the managerial positions. H&M is also putting a focus on animal rights, launching a plan which they hope will lead them to using 100% certified down by the end of the year, with the same goals for sourcing wool by 2017. They have also set a goal to use certified organic cotton or recycled cotton 100% of the time by 2020. In 2014, they note that out of their total cotton use, 21.2% was sustainable.
H&M is also committed to furthering the conditions of the workers in their supplier factories, conditions that we well know are more than sub-par for many garment workers. But it’s clear there is still a lot of work to do on that end for the retailer. In 2014, only one of their strategic supplier factories had a fair living wage system. H&M is hoping to increase that to 60 by the end of the year, and to 550 by 2018.
You can read the entire report at H&M’s website to see how well they’re doing in making sure their business is kinder to our planet and its people.
