Kathy Griffin is a woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, so you know that once she takes over hosting duties at E!’s Fashion Police, she’s going to come with the fury. The comedienne dished with Jimmy Kimmel last night about her new job replacing Joan Rivers on the hit TV show. And sensitive celebs may want to brace themselves because Kathy promises to take no prisoners.
“This was a job that was held by our dear friend Joan Rivers, so I understand I have some very, very large shoes to fill,” she declared. “So, in her honor, I will not be holding back. I am giving no passes, I am going to let people have it, I am going to bring the hammer down.” And it sounds like Jimmy may be her first victim. “You might wanna up your game,” she joked with the host.
Kathy, we’re so ready.

Prepare to salivate over Gisele Bündchen’s newest recent cover. As discussed in our Cover Rumor Thread earlier in October, everyone’s favorite Brazilian bombshell strikes once again, on Vogue Australia’s January 2015 cover. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in conjunction with the model’s Chanel No. 5 fragrance campaign, the French lensman captured Gisele against his signature studio backdrop wearing a piece from Chanel’s haute couture collection, with Christine Centenera teaming the embellished dress with a vintage denim jacket.

It should come as no surprise that our forum members are more than content with the results. “Cool! Vogue Australia is definitely one of the best fashion mags lately!” raved john2elmejor.
“Fantastic! I love the styling here. That denim jacket makes the cover pop,” added Elfinkova, complimenting Centenera’s styling abilities.
Also full of praise was TeeVanity, who wrote, “Completely stunning, yes for Vogue Australia starting their new year right. Gisele is gorgeous!”
Cosmic Voices shared the same sentiments: “Stunning cover, it instantly looks iconic. Plus the styling is superb.”
“Wow, breathtaking, what a way to kick off the year! Vogue Australia is a force to be reckoned with! It does remind me somewhat of her Vogue Paris beauty cover, but way better of course. I normally loathe denim on a cover, but love it here. Cannot wait to see her edit!” enthused Benn98.
Miss Dalloway summed up the cover perfectly by describing it as “simply gorgeous.”

The date is set for John Galliano’s big return to the fashion industry. The designer, recently appointed as creative director of Maison Martin Margiela, will show his first collection for the label in London during Couture Fashion Week. According to The Business of Fashion, the designer will present his latest around tea time on January 15.
This couture offering is noted as “artisanal,” which we’re guessing means very, very fancy. There’s no telling what Galliano’s been working on for his first showing, although we think that the bespoke gown he made for Anna Wintour at last week’s British Fashion Awards may give us a clue as to what’s in store.

The fashion corner of the Internet went wild on Monday night when Riccardo Tisci revealed the images from his spring campaign, for which he tapped American icon Julia Roberts. Julia seemed like an unlikely, yet altogether unsurprising, choice for Givenchy. We didn’t expect to see her in the campaign, but when we saw the images, it all made sense. The actress is barefaced, pared down and unsmiling in the campaign, a choice which Tisci told Yahoo! Style was intentional. “It’s Julia’s sensibility that interests me. I fell in love with her because she’s a strong woman, but she’s also fragile. I also love her intellectual side. So for me, the Julia in these pictures is the real one you see every day.”
Tisci clad Julia in classic Givenchy pieces for the campaign; a black suit, a billowing black blouse and a smart pencil skirt paired with a crisp white button-down underneath a black pullover. For as natural and comfortable as Julia looks in front of the camera, she admitted that the prospect of modeling seemed extremely foreign to her. In fact, she said that she thought it was simply hilarious that she, at her age, would have been asked to appear in the ads. “My sister and I were actually just on the phone, and we were laughing so hard,” she told Joe Zee. “She goes, ‘How are you suddenly turned into a supermodel? You’re almost 50.’ It’s funny.”
Julia said she was also a bit timid when she stepped on set to be photographed by shutterbugs Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. But Tisci’s presence put her at ease, not only about the shoot, but about fashion in general. “He’s in an industry that I find very intimidating and elusive—just like the good-looking girl in high school. The whole fashion industry is that to me. And then you meet these people who are so kind, love what they do, and are very interested in the personal aspects of it.”
If there was any fear or intimidation, it’s certainly not apparent in these photos!

Surprises are the best part of the holidays. You never know what will be under the tree, who will meet you under the mistletoe or what kind of amazing retail collaborations will come about. This year is no exception. Cool girl handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has created a beauty bag exclusively for Holt Renfrew. Packed full of her own favourite beauty picks — think Clinique Chubby Stick, ReVive Glycolic Renewal Peel, Laura Mercier Longwear Crème Eye Pencil, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum, Sisley Supremÿa Yeux la Nuit Anti-Aging Eye Serum — it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
The bag is Holt Renfrew’s first holiday beauty collaboration and brings a touch of New York to Canada. In an interview with the luxury retailer’s online publication, Holts Muse, the designer disclosed her inspiration behind the collaboration. “For this cosmetic bag I was particularly inspired by the holidays in New York City,” she says. “There’s such an excitement in the air during this time, I wanted to design something festive that any Rebecca Minkoff girl can enjoy!”
The Rebecca Minkoff x Holt Renfrew holiday beauty bag is available in quilted gold lamé or gunmetal, and includes a long, narrow interior pouch that’s perfect for storing makeup brushes or any delicate items. Available exclusively at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada, the bag retails for $50 and includes a $25 voucher that can be put toward any future beauty purchase.
