Kylie Jenner Sports Sass & Bide for the Teen Choice Awards 2014

2014 Teen Choice Awards Kylie Jenner Sass and Bide

Kylie Jenner is another celebrity jumping aboard the stylish Sass & Bide train, rocking the label’s mock front wrap skirt at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. It’s not the first time the Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet has sported the Aussie label, though, having also worn a Sass & Bide white embellished mini onstage at the MuchMusic Video Awards in June.

For the blue carpet, Kylie kept the whole look black and gold, which was a good move for the 17-year-old who looked well beyond her years in the fresh-yet-sophisticated getup. Opting for a midriff-baring tank crop, strappy heels and colour-coordinated arm-junk kept the look youthful, while also drawing well-deserved attention to the gold embroidery and plaited-trim embellishment of the smart-looking skirt.

Celebrities mustn’t care too much about Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke’s departure from the brand, with model Zippora Seven also spotted in a Sass & Bide dress just last week. Perhaps these starlets just can’t turn a blind eye to the wonderful detailing of the label’s latest Novateur collection, with both Kylie and Zippora sporting intricately embroidered, metallic pieces from the range.

Beauty and the Geek’s Jessie Byrne Models SJ Lingerie’s New Big-Busted Collection

Jessie Byrne SJ Lingerie Bombshells

Jessie Byrne SJ Lingerie Bombshells

Looks like it’s been only onwards and upwards for Beauty and the Geek Australia’s 2010 winner, Jessie Byrne, who has just been tapped to front SJ Lingerie‘s new collection dubbed Bombshells. Catering specifically to big-busted women from sizes 8 to 22 in DD+/E cups, Jessie couldn’t be a better fit for the beautifully-crafted range.

With other underwear brands struggling to offer both sex appeal and support, SJ Lingerie’s new collection is a breath of fresh air for women who, like Jessie, have a large chest. The model from NSW’s Central Coast admitted bra shopping has been difficult in the past, which is one of the reasons why she chose to have a breast reduction back in 2011. Going from a G to a DD cup meant that Jessie lost over 1.1 kilograms of her breasts, but even so, her goods are still on the bigger side.

But with collections like Bombshells featuring soft bras and nightdresses made from European lace, satin and chiffon, buying daggy styles to keep everything in place is now a mere memory. The pieces manage to be feminine and secure all in one go, with hidden power-mesh panels which support the bust. See the fuller-figure range for yourself here, or click through our gallery below.

Zac Posen is Designing Elyse Taylor’s Wedding Dress

Aussie model Elyse Taylor is well on her way to marrying partner and baby-daddy, Seth Campbell, after giving birth to their baby, Lila, earlier this year. In true model form, Elyse has already shed the baby weight, is back into modelling and getting a feel for wedding dresses when she’s got the spare time.

At least we can trust models when it comes to highly-fashionable wedding gowns. Remember Kate Moss in vintage-inspired Galliano? How about Poppy Delevingne in custom-made Chanel? Well, we can be just as proud of Elyse, who is turning to none other than American fashion designer Zac Posen to design the dress for her big day.

Zac posted a pic of Elyse and himself to his Instagram, with a natural-looking Elyse looking smiley in a puffy blue dress. The caption reads, “The wedding gown is a surprise but thought we’d try something blue too, on the gorgeous and delicious @elysetaylor1.” Not really that much of a surprise since you’ve gone and done that now, is it, Zac?

We can’t just blame the Project Runway judge completely, though, because Elyse reposted the picture with some similar information. “Words can’t describe how beautiful I felt in the dress! My wedding dress is going to be even more amazing! I feel so lucky! Thank you zac love you!! @zac_posen #regram xx.”

So, there you have it. The bride will wear a dress by Zac Posen. When is she getting married? Not sure. Where? Don’t know. But she’ll look phenomenal. That is a given.

See ‘Wild Child’ Rihanna on the Cover of W’s September Issue (Forum Buzz)

W has pulled out all the stops for its all-important fall fashion extravaganza. The magazine tapped Rihanna to cover its September 2014 issue and enlisted Turkish photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to capture the “Rude Boy” singer. Styled by Edward Enninful, the 26-year-old wears a dress from Donna Karan, an Ashley Lloyd headdress, Amrapali ruby and diamond ear cuffs and a Meadowlark septum ring teamed with a Stephen Dweck sterling silver and pyrite necklace. Not to mention the dramatic makeup look from Dior.

Our forum members are on the fence regarding Rihanna’s second cover of the American fashion publication (she previously starred on the cover of the February 2010 issue). “Ugh… I love Rihanna but, this. Is. Awful,” wrote [J.]Oliver.

“Her nose looks HUGE !! A close-up shot should be a perfect idea for a girl as beautiful as Rihanna but this is one of the most unflattering covers I’ve ever seen,” commented a disappointed Wolkfolk.

Miss Dalloway also seemed disinterested and posted, “This does nothing for me! Where are the clothes on these Sept covers! And even when it’s not that overused LV collection, it’s an Allure close up with bad hair and makeup! This doesn’t appeal to me!”

The remaining members were ecstatic, however. GarageGlamorous appreciated the concept: “At least they didn’t [go] for a boring or safe cover with a celebrity, and that itself is a big plus for me. I agree with the person who mentioned the concept was cool, I’m looking forward to a dark editorial for September.”

“Judging by that cover something tells me the content is going to be FIERCE!” enthused Breathless, clearly enticed by what the cover has to offer.

Discussion later shifted toward the content after a review was posted inside the thread. “The review sounds EPIC! Can’t wait!” exclaimed Nepenthes.

See inside the thread to read the review of the issue and check out Rihanna’s cover story. A few previews of the fashion editorials have also kindly been posted. Feel free to join the discussion and share your own opinion here.

This Looks Familiar: Mert & Marcus Photograph Natalia Vodianova for Vogue Paris (Forum Buzz)

Only a matter of days after Vanity Fair‘s September cover with Natalia Vodianova surfaced on our forums, the Russian beauty is now fronting the September 2014 issue of Vogue Paris. As if Natalia wearing Louis Vuitton wasn’t enough (the fashion house being the most overused collection on September covers), French Vogue‘s latest cover image is reminding forum members of an existing Natalia x Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shoot. At least it’s different from the March 2012 cover, which also featured the 32-year-old and now mother of four. Joe McKenna styled Natalia for this shoot.

The thread has garnered mix reviews. “I would have never thought about Natalia and I’m disappointed. The cover is too simple even if she’s beautiful. I would have loved a fresh face like Joan or Karlie. It’s like they didn’t want to take risks. September 2014 is really disappointing imo,” commented an unsatisfied Oxymore.

“I hate this, she looks like she’s got a mustache and her look ain’t happier either. The styling is beyond boring, for a September issue…” posted Royal-Galliano.

A better solution was offered by littlekiki: “I feel like any other model in the same styling would have been more intriguing. Is Natalia becoming boring? I think so.”

“What an ugly cover. The styling is terrible, there is too much Photoshop and absolutely nothing stands out…” posted Thefrenchy, yet another disinterested forum member.

There are a few members who appreciate the magazine’s efforts, however. “Even though it is the twin ed of Vogue Russia’s September issue from 2010 (I guess?!) I love the cover! The contrast and saturation makes Natalia look a little rough, but as a whole looks good, and I love the detail of the unzipping of the LV dress, gorgeous!!!!” complimented miguelalmeida.

The cover is growing on Nepenthes: “The more I look at it the more I like it. I did expect Karlie but at the same time Natalia looks gorgeous. Two major September covers already!”

Are you a fan or do you dislike the fact that Mert & Marcus used the same concept over again? Read some more comments and post your own here.
