Seriously rad California-based sock company Stance Socks has tapped Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blyth for a collection dubbed Bglam by Bambi. The result of the collaboration is two pairs of socks decked out in sequins from ankle to mid-shin. Bambi says, “Life’s a party, so start dressing like it.”

Coming in both black and heather grey, the high-wattage sparkle coating instantly adds a little bit of glam to any outfit, while also giving your feet the warmth they need during late nights. And once the party’s over, this shiny footwear can easily be machine washed.Bambi Northwood Blyth Stance Socks (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…)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s UK Harper’s Bazaar Cover ‘Looks Like Some Lipstick Ad’ (Forum Buzz)

As the September covers continue to roll in on our forums, UK Harper’s Bazaar‘s edition is the latest to surface. For the September 2014 cover, the magazine enlisted British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as its cover subject for the “biggest issue ever.” Photographed by Bazaar regular David Slijper, Rosie stares down his lens wearing a pink mohair coat from Gucci. Even coming to us with minimal text for a newsstand cover, our forum members have mixed opinions.

“Love her but wish we could see more of what she has on versus a head shot,” commented Handbag Queen.

GlamorousBoy also questioned the choice of cover image: “It is beautiful but it just looks to me like some lipstick advertising or something like that… and although it is [the] biggest issue ever, it really does not look thick.”

“It’s a good beauty shot actually. I don’t see her as a great model because she doesn’t have much range but I respect and like her beauty. The only problem I have with this is that it doesn’t say much than ‘I’m pretty look at me’ instead of feeling emotionally involved with a story or with what she would have on her (fashion wise),” shared Bertrando3.

“I don’t even mean this sarcastically, but I honestly feel like I’ve seen this exact cover done before,” noted blueorchid.

Not everyone shared their sentiments, though, with the majority of our forum members favoring the cover. “I like it a lot. Stunning cover, yay for Rosie!” enthused an elated TeeVanity.

Miranda Almond‘s styling found an admirer in miguelalmeida, who posted, “Great cover! Cool concept and it looks really good the way they placed that Gucci coat!”

Uniqlo Expands with Two New Stores in Sydney and Melbourne

After an influx of shoppers to Uniqlo’s first Australian store at Melbourne’s Emporium building, the Japanese retail giant is looking to expand throughout the country with additional stores in both Sydney and Melbourne. While the dates remain unconfirmed, we now know that Uniqlo will be opening in Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre and North Ryde’s Macquarie Centre.

It’s public knowledge that the brand was negotiating a lease for the Macquarie space, along with Victoria’s Secret and Zara, but the agreement has now been confirmed. “We’re very excited to be bringing Uniqlo to two great new locations in Sydney, now adding the Macquarie Centre to the list,” said Uniqlo Australia CEO Shoichi Miyasaka, as reported by Time Out Sydney.

But unlike H&M, which recently announced its opening in the up-and-coming Macquarie Centre, Uniqlo still has plans to set up in Sydney CBD’s Pitt Street Mall as well. Shoichi seems to be taking mental notes on how Aussie customers are reacting to the brand’s affordable products, going off its existing Melbourne store and Sydney pop-up as indication. “Growing the brand in this market is obviously very important and from what we’ve seen so far, Australians have responded really well to our offering.”
