Viktoria + Woods has gained the help and stylish know-how of two very fashionable Australian women, Nadia Fairfax and Lindy Klim, to showcase its Rapture Spring 2014 collection in a three-part series. “We admire how Lindy and Nadia interpret the collection in their own way and represent its versatility,” said the Melbourne-based label.

Australian pro-surfer Stephanie Gilmore looked as pretty as a picture at the New York premiere for the new Stephanie in the Water documentary. The film is all about Stephanie’s impressive surfing career, so of course the blond bombshell upped the wardrobe ante for her big night.
The surfer-babe stepped out on the red carpet in a feminine, matchy-matchy white ensemble. The long-sleeve crop was teamed perfectly with the lace pencil midi skirt, making the look both pretty and sexy all in one hit.
Stephanie stuck with simple black accessories, including a small leather purse and sweet open-toe pumps, for a monochromatic and effortless look. With Stephanie easily the centre of attention for the premiere, it’s lucky she didn’t falter in the wardrobe department.
One would not normally dress up for a day in the desert. But in Sharni Vinson‘s fashion shoot for The Carousel, the former Home and Away star wears a mix of extremely elegant gowns, extraordinary jewels and divine makeup amongst barren terrain and fancy cars.
In the shoot by Glenn Nutley, Sharni wears a structured teal GUiSHEM gown and a sparkly Alon Livne floor-length dress, striking captivating poses with roughed-up hair and soft pink lips. We’ve been served with much more than just a slightly confusing fashion shoot, though, with Sharni talking style, career and beauty in an interview with the site. (more…)
Kristen Stewart may still be massively popular all over the world, but she’s usually not our forum members’ favorite cover star. For the German edition of Interview, Kristen was photographed together with her Clouds of Sils Maria co-star, Juliette Binoche. In the movie, the two actresses are in a relationship. Therefore, it is no surprise the magazine opted to go for a similar concept for the cover shot of its September issue.
Reactions on our forums were mostly positive. One of the first to comment on the cover was catherine88. “Oh man! I like that cover with Kristen and Juliette. It’s kind of sexy,” she noted.
LastNight applauded the decision to have Kristen pose with her eyes closed. “I have always thought Kristen Stewart to be a very beautiful woman, however in almost every photoshoot she looks dead in the eyes. I think they’ve found a solution here and I say from now on she has her eyes down/closed in all future shoots because it’s really working for her. In all sincerity though, it is a beautiful cover and I really enjoy the other two as well,” he wrote.
“Juliette & Kristen’s cover does look good, but I prefer Sam Rollinson‘s. I mean, look at [those] shoulders!” remarked Benn98, referring to one of the two alternative model covers (check out the previews here).
It looks like the magazine is presenting a solid effort for its September issue. The cover with Kristen and Juliette is simple, but also sensual and interesting. The model covers with Sam and Lindsey Wixson are dynamic and striking. If the covers are that great, the content is sure to be exciting, too. Not bad, Interview Germany!
Rag & Bone is hotly promoting its Fall 2014 collection, but instead of a traditional lookbook, designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have released a series of videos to give folks an interactive look at the latest collection. The latest is an almost 13-minute documentary, chronicling the making of the collection from production all the way up to the big show.
Directed by Vern Moen, the short provides a behind-the-scenes look at everything from production to the runway. Cameras take you into the Rag & Bone workroom, with the label’s design team fiddling with patterns, removing pockets from jackets and adding all the finishing touches to the range, which includes meticulously adding paint splatters (by hand) to jeans.
As with putting together any collection, there are a few hiccups and delays. At one point, Wainwright laments about some embroidered pieces that took more time than expected at the embroider’s, simply because so many designers were doing embroidery this season and the few locations in town were booked up with requests.
The hectic nature of backstage is also perfectly chronicled here. Amid what seems like a million cameras and microphones, models get primped while sipping beer backstage. Georgia May Jagger, one of the many high-profile models walking in the show, quips that she would miss her turn on the runway standing in line waiting for some beer. We can relate.
Peep the entire documentary below. (more…)
