Shailene Woodley’s Favourite Thing: Canadian-Based Living Libations

I’m sure by now you’ve all heard Shailene Woodley’s surprising claims about the benefits of sunbathing your nether-regions, eating clay and making your own medicine. The girl has been like a modern day woodland nymph sharing her various home remedies with media, but there was one thing that caught my attention in her recent interview with Into the Gloss: Her praise for Seabuckthorn Best Thing Ever from Living Libations.

Being an unabashed lover of any formula that ends in –lycol or features a “Toxic if ingested” warning, I had never heard of this product or company until now, but upon further investigation, was pleased to discover that they are 100% Canadian. Yuppers. Founded by Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, the Haliburton-based brand takes the best of Mother Nature’s pantry and blends it together to make wholesome skin cocktails. They even make the clay-based toothpaste Shailene is so enamoured with!

But about that Seabuckthorn blend. According to the site it’s an all-in-one face and body product that cleanses, exfoliates and moisturizes through a mix of Seabuckthorn Berry Oil, Golden Jojoba Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Tamanu Oil and many other goodies. Predictably, it’s currently sold out after Shailene’s interview, in which she claims to use it to take her makeup off at night and moisturize her face.

“They have the highest-integrity products that I have ever found,” she spouts. “Everything is next-level, beyond pure. They source essential oils and all of their ingredients from small farmers who are treated well. Even the way they ship is mindful—they have a zero-emission standard. They also make some amazing dark chocolate.”

That very chocolate famously landed the couple in trouble with border control in 2009 – charges were eventually dropped – but hey, if it’s good enough for a selfless Abnegation (and may I add, Alanis Morrisette), then I think we should all be open to checking it out.

Post-Vogue Cover, Fashion Folk Now Sucking Up to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West



Although Kanye West has been a man-about-fashion-town for the past few years, what with his ill-fated attempt to launch a design career, his recent appearance on the cover of Vogue, together with fiance Kim Kardashian, puts #THEWORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE in a different stratosphere: Fashion folks, now they bow.  

For example: WWD, the industry's paper of record, is already gearing up for the couple's wedding this summer. "Invitations have yet to be mailed out, but it’s not too early to start thinking of the perfect wedding gift." And so the trade publication reached out to a dozen fashion notables to ask, "What would they get the couple that, quite literally, has everything?" #LITERALLY. 

A few of our favorite responses:

  • Stéphane Rolland: A life-like carving of the couple in an 18k slab of gold.
  • Karl Lagerfeld: A 'Balloon Venus' sculpture by Jeff Koons, but not one of the two Lagerfeld was gifted by LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault.
  • Alber Elbaz: "I would make a whole collection of beautiful summer dresses for North, because I know how much they love her, how much she means to them and how precious she is."
  • Roberto Cavalli: Respect, friendship and love. "I consider Kim an independent woman — just the way I like women."
  • Chelsea Leyland: A matching pair of Kappa tracksuits.
  • Erin Fetherston: A copy of Emily Post's Etiquette. (Ouch!)
  • Jude Law: A mirror ball. 
  • Maison Martin Margiela: Anonymity.

  • On marketing 'real' bodies: "Any revolution in the depiction of women’s bodies is not going to come from marketers, whose job it is to construct a narrative in which a person is incomplete until a product is purchased—and so must create feelings of unworthiness and desire, as well as an impulse to change." [NewYorker]
  • "Younger girls are now not looking at Valentino from afar, but at these new pieces as must-haves. That’s the biggest change. Everyone from all ages wants to own Valentino, not just to admire it.” [Fashionista]

Is Victoria Beckham a Serious Fashion Designer? Not According to Dolce & Gabbana

Speaking with reporters at London's Victoria and Albert Museum, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were asked to comment on their friend Victoria Beckham's design career, and their remarks were a little unflattering as reported by Digital Spy:

Gabbana: "She's a friend. She make a good job but… for us, she don't make the same way like a fashion designer. She become after many, many, many different things. She's a designer but… She's a fashion designer but it's another… it's different. John Galliano is a designer… Alexander McQueen."

Dolce then grouped Beckham together with Zara and H&M (ouch!), qualifying it as a "professional" approach to design.
