You might know Sydney Fashion Blogger, otherwise know as Antoinette Marie. Yes, that is her real name. She’s got a whopping 817,000 Instagrammers who follow her every move, outfit and shoe purchase, and is what you could rightly call kind of a big deal. Mamamia’s Rosie Waterland, on the other hand, is a big deal thanks to her hilarious way with words, which include, but are not limited to, The Bachelor recaps that literally made us cry with fits of laughter week by week.

Out there amongst the likes of Lily Aldridge, Gig Hadid and Chanel Iman, Australian model Jessica Gomes impressed as one of Sports Illustrated‘s all-time favourites at its Swimsuit Issue celebration at New York’s Marquee on February 10.
Having appeared in the issue many times before, the Perth-raised model didn’t feel the need to overdo it. Instead, she went for a sexy-yet-sophisticated look in black high-neck crop teamed with an Elizabeth and James black thigh-split skirt. (more…)
Fashion designer and ex-wife of bazillionaire James Packer, Jodhi Meares, was reportedly involved in a domestic incident with her fiancé, Noiseworks singer Jon Stevens, earlier this week, and now the pair might not be able to contact one another until a hearing three months from now.
News.com.au reports that police were called to a Wolseley Road premises in the early hours of Monday morning, February 9, after hearing of a domestic argument involving a 52-year-old man and 42-year-old woman. Rose Bay Local Area Command’s officers visited the site, where they spoke to the couple and reportedly wound up arresting Stevens.
Stevens was taken to Waverley Police Station and charged with assault before being released on bail. Rose Bay police applied for an interim AVO which, if granted, would restrict Stevens from contacting Meares for 28 days. (more…)
Swarovski is announcing its Collective participants through the power of social media this season. With the help of a few artists, Swarovski produced six 15-second videos in which they add their own spin on the designers’ sketches.
Artists Craig & Karl were tapped to create a short for Tim Coppens and Creatures of the Wind, utilizing their bold, graphic aesthetic to produce a kaleidoscopic piece that’s positively hypnotizing. Jenny Walton teamed with Wes Gordon and Misha Nonoo, recording herself doing marker sketches of some of their designs before festooning her work with fabric.
Check out a few of the videos and get excited to see the collections fully realized once they hit the runway this month. (more…)
Spring typically is full of blooming flowers, the color pink and happiness. While we may appreciate something different, Vogue Russia completely missed the mark with its March cover. The magazine released its most recent installment, which features Russian newcomer Valery Kaufman wearing Prada in a classic portrait captured by Patrick Demarchelier. Unfortunately for us, it’s a complete bore.
Our forum members aren’t afraid to voice their opinions. “IMO this is so bland and it’s not just Demarchelier’s fault, Valery is giving me nothing,” kokobombon expressed.
“Valery is getting more boring every day IMO,” added gulsah in agreement.
Melancholybaby ultimately agreed and responded, “Which is why she’s the perfect choice for VR. This magazine gets more stale and uninspiring every month.”
“This magazine is depressing… It puts me in a blue mood,” Creative informed us.
Also unafraid to share his sentiments was MON: “Do they even try anymore? I mean this is not a bad cover and yes, they’ve had worse but come on… month after month of lackluster covers. Before they had covers that are visually appealing, some that are seductive but now… all are borderline safe and pedestrian. Gone are the energy their covers used to have.”
Moofins disapproved too and slammed, “Eh, pass. From the colors to the layout, it feels stale.”
“Boring, but I’m happy they’re supporting Russian talent that is not Natasha or Natalia,” anlabe32 commented, altering the mood of the thread slightly.
