Nine West Would Like to Sell Women Shoes for ‘Starter Husband Hunting’

So much for female empowerment in advertising being a thing. It seems like Nine West is going against the trend with its latest campaign, which you can find on the company’s site. This fall, Nine West wants to outfit women in its selection of shoes — but only if they’re looking for a man.

The shoe brand’s latest promos have sparked outrage online with people calling the ads both ridiculous and sexist. On Nine West’s main page, we see a woman’s foot clad in a leopard print pump with the words “Starter Husband Hunting” superimposed onto the image. Click through, and you’re directed to another page under the brand’s “Shoe Occasions” section featuring a graphic proclaiming, “Whether you’re looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now…We got a shoe for that.” Uh-huh.

Scroll down and you’ll find a selection of shoes (mostly pumps) in black, red and leopard print colorways — gotta be fierce when you’re out looking for a man, amirite? Especially if you don’t plan on keeping him around because, after all, you want a rich starter husband and there are deeper pockets out there. 

“But what if I’m not man-hunting and I need a pair of shoes for something else?” you ask. Don’t worry, Nine West has even more options for you, but only if you’re sending your kids to kindergarten for the first time, otherwise, YOU DON’T DESERVE SHOES AT ALL, SPINSTER.  (more…)

Tallulah Willis is young, wealthy and in the public eye, but that doesn’t mean life has been a cakewalk for her. The 20-year-old revealed her struggles with body dysmorphia and an eating disorder as a teenager for StyleLikeU‘s The What’s Underneath Project.

The Clothing Coven blogger opened up on camera about the body issues that plagued her teenage years, noting that her obsession with her appearance started when she was 13: “Reading those like stupid f****ng tabloids when I was 13, feeling like I was ugly, always. I believed the strangers more than the people that love me because, why would the people who love me be honest?”

Public scrutiny of her body led Tallulah to dress sexier, showing off her curves in short shorts and push-up bras. “I would read these things on the Internet and I was like, ‘Well, why would somebody write that if there wasn’t some basis for truth there?’ OK, cool, I have a good body and that’s attractive to people, I got that, cool, I’ll just use that…It’s going to make up for what I’m lacking in my face.”  (more…)

Accessorize Taps Shanina Shaik for 30th Birthday Campaign

Shanina Shaik is no longer just making waves in Australia. After gracing the Victoria’s Secret catwalk, dating men like American model Tyson Beckford and hanging out on yachts with Justin Bieber in Spain, she’s clearly no longer just the 2008 runner-up of the reality TV show Make Me a Supermodel.

It has been a busy six years for the popular model, and now the UK fashion market has taken a liking to the brunette babe with Accessorize tapping Shanina for its 30th birthday campaign. The 23-year-old stars alongside Anna Brewster and Milou Sluis, with the trio looking smiley and cosy in the British countryside. (more…)

Why Is Anna Dello Russo Wearing This Native American Headdress?

One step forward, two steps back seems to be the trending theme in fashion these days. Just when a Canadian music festival made headlines for officially banning Native American headdresses from its event, one esteemed member of the fashion set is reclaiming her right to wear offensive sh*t. Vogue Japan editor Anna Dello Russo recently posted a series, yes, a series, of five photos to Instagram of her twirling and posing in a Native American headdress because of…wait for it…some party at the end of an airport runway in Ibiza. We guess that’s as good a reason as any?

From what we’ve gleaned, Anna attended a party at Ibiza’s DC10 club, which boasts on its Facebook page that it’s “one of the best known clubbing destinations on the planet, principally due to the hedonistic and no holds barred afterhour sessions of Monday daytime party Circo Loco.” What’s worse is that the editor refers to the piece as her Ibiza hat, which one can only conclude means that she thinks the piece is just a cute accessory to wear to listen to music outdoors.

Kate Moss Styles Lara Stone (and Wolves) for Vogue UK’s September Issue (Forum Buzz)

After being made Contributing Fashion Editor of UK Vogue, Kate Moss is now onto her third shoot for the British monthly, which can be found inside the September 2014 issue. Kate cast Lara Stone for a story entitled “The Wolf In Her” that focuses on the idea of a wild fantasy fairy tale. Kate obviously knew what she was getting when casting the Dutch model, due to the fact that the duo have worked together before on various other shoots (although with both of them in front of the lens). Kate has previously enlisted Daria Werbowy and Freja Beha Erichsen for her Vogue styling stories.

Shot by Mario Sorrenti, Lara can be found amongst an overgrown woodland area or hiding out inside a room filled with decorative medieval fabrics. Kate styled Lara showcasing a number of ensembles from Alberta Ferretti, Dries Van Noten, Emilio Pucci and Versace. Although what really seems to make the images come alive are the wolves, which join Lara and pose cooperatively by her side for the majority of the photos.

Forum members like Kite were quick to point out the editorial inside the thread: “The best one is the Kate Moss styled Lara Stone ed, purely for the fact she isn’t a ‘Rocker Girl.'” (more…)
