We're willing to admit we've perused hot & busted, a tumblr dedicated to mugshots of attractive men. And we're not ashamed because some of those guys are really handsome. But no mugshot you could find on that site can compare to Stockton, California's Jeremy Meeks', which went viral because, well, boy is foine.
Swooning yet? Pump the breaks, because he's a convicted felon and alleged gang member, now back in jail on felony weapon charges, for which he is currently pending a second conviction. He previously served nine years for grand theft auto. It is for this reason that a lot of people have been wagging the finger at the attention he's been getting, saying that he's being put on a pedestal for his looks. Needless to say, Jeremy Meeks is a guy who probably had a tough upbringing which eventually led to a life of crime and in his words, he's done stuff he's "not proud of."
Of course, we should care that he's not someone you'd ideally take home to mom. But your eyes can't deny those cheekbones, those pillowy, perfectly-shaped lips and those ice gray eyes. The guy's got a look. And it's very editorial–and I wanna stare at it for hours. That's a face (and maybe body) that could sell some clothes. Sorry I'm not sorry.
While we all hope he is punished in a manner fitting for his crime (never a guarantee under U.S. Justice System), maybe when he gets out, some agency will offer him a modeling contract? Whisk him away from a life of crime to the Paris runwa–ugh, there I go glamorizing him.
He's not a model citizen, but Jeremy Meeks is out-of-control gorgeous–and that's OK! You don't need to condone his lifestyle to appreciate his beauty.
Mulberry's brand may be falling out of favour since the departure of designer Emma Hill, but it's still pushing a lot of weight behind the continued partnership with model, muse and enfant terrible, Cara Delevingne. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, or any ensuing controversy, the London It girl and coveted model stripped down for the just-released ad campaign.
The featured bag, which is a quilted hybrid shape somewhere between a backpack and a handbag, will be available in two sizes and a range of colours from emerald green to monochrome camouflage. The brand, whose other It girl-inspired bags include the Del Rey and Alexa, has also released a behind-the-scenes video to support the collaboration.
"Being a muse for Mulberry, it's just very funny to me," says Cara in the video as she departs from London's iconic Paddington station. "Just saying it now, the fact that I inspire the brand…it's a two way street, you know? The amount I get back is exactly the same."
The video shows the model taking a trip to the factory and overseeing the production of her signature bag. Getting your bag handmade by Cara is a bit of a pipe dream, but you can get your hands on the exclusive style by entering a competition on Mulberry's Cara-themed hub.
Scoring her second Vogue Spain cover, Constance Jablonski is the magazine's July 2014 cover model of choice. Patrick Demarchelier shot Constance while she struck a pose against a classic dove gray backdrop, wearing a black dress by Sportmax and jewelry from Bulgari, styled by Belen Antolin, Vogue's fashion director. The French model and current face of Estée Lauder previously fronted Vogue Spain's February 2011 issue.

As usual on our forums, members have diverse opinions regarding the cover. "Constance is lovely but something about the hand placement makes her look like a glamorous migraine sufferer," comments Luxx.
"Looks just a bit unfinished. Something's just not working here. Still, kudos to them for not using all those texts," wrote Srdjan.
Creative made a pretty strong statement: "Ugly cover. They chose the worst picture. I literally CAN'T with this magazine anymore. I'm done."
Then on the other hand, some members were satisfied with the cover. "Go Constance! Happy she got another Vogue!" enthused la veronika.
"How stunning, this will look even better in print I think," shared Miss Dalloway.

Rounding out Givenchy's diverse list of campaign stars is Alicia Keys, who is the face for the brand's Dahlia Divin fragrance. Keys is personal friends with creative director Riccardo Tisci, through whom she says she learned of the opportunity. "As time passed, [this fragrance campaign] came to fruition," she explained to WWD. "I love what Givenchy is about. Givenchy is this timeless, chic, but very strong woman, but with an edgier, almost street feel. I love that she’s raw, but she’s powerful–and that’s who I believe I am, too.”
Keys' campaign for the fragrance, however, is more soft than edgy. The singer sits perched in a Tisci-designed embellished champagne-hued gown with her hair slicked back, head tilted furtively to the side. The image, with its wisps of what looks like gold wire, gives a bit of a storybook vibe, a la "I visited Rumplestiltskin's atelier and took this dress spun from gold."
The fragrance is due for release in time for fall, with Keys expected to make an appearance promoting the scent at Macy's Herald Square come September 2. If you're looking to scoop one up for yourself, prices range from $65 to $110 a bottle, with a Skin Dew option for $53.

Canadian shopaholics can finally begin to get excited about Nordstrom's impending arrival to the country, with stores scheduled to roll out over the next few years. Already, work is underway at what will be the flagship location at Toronto’s Eaton Centre, taking over Sears’ coveted site, but now we finally have photos of what five other Nordstrom shops will look like from city to city.
Nordstrom Canada Vancouver location.
According to Retail Insider, Nordstrom’s extensively renovated location at The Grove in Los Angeles gives insight into the look of its new Canadian stores. The most obvious feature will be light, lots and lots of it as floor-to-ceiling windows grace many of the store facades. Interiors will be clean black and white, and white marble floors or high-gloss tiles will pave the way through the shopper’s paradise.
Nordstrom Canada Yorkdale location.
Summer's the time for weekend excursions, road trips and beach chilling. But for those of us who don't have a three-month-long summer break (sadly, we can't all become teachers), a little impromptu getaway of sorts is a necessity post work week.
Today, American Express is coming with the perfect way to kick off your weekend. To celebrate the launch of its new Amex EveryDay Credit Card, this evening they will be streaming the Maroon 5 concert live from the Bowery Ballroom in New York City, starting at 8 p.m. ET. So if you're planning on hitting the town, you can get ready to the sounds of Adam Levine and the gang from the comfort of your own home. No crowds, no overzealous fans spilling beer all over your new blouse–just good ol' fashioned tunes for a sweet weekend mini-getaway.
American Express launched the Amex EveryDay Credit Card in April with the help of funny lady Tina Fey. The EveryDay rewards card awards points for members based on how much they use their card–not how much they spend. Use your card more than 20 times in one billing cycle, and you get 20% Membership Reward Points on those purchases. American Express also launched a contest in which contestants would post their #EveryDayMoments with selfies for a chance to win an Epic EveryDay Getaway to New York City. The 50 (plus one guest for each) winners have already been announced, and have been twirling around NYC since Wednesday, staying at the InterContinental Times Square, where a jam-packed swag bag was waiting for them. A few of the goodies inside? An American Express Gift Card, DVD of Disney’s Frozen, Cameron Diaz’s The Body Book, LeSportsac cosmetic bags, Yosi Samra Shoes, RoC Multi Correxion Eye Cream, Sephora Makeup Remover, DryBar Dry Shampoo, movie tickets and more.
The Epic EveryDay Getaway kicked off yesterday with a visit to the TODAY show, a cocktail party with Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman, who showed the gang around town before hitting up a Broadway performance of Rock of Ages. This morning, winners got an early start on the day with an 8 a.m. SoulCycle session in Grand Central Station with Kristen Bell and instructor Stacey Griffith. After, they headed over to Milk Studios to have a makeover session with Rent the Runway, Drybar and Sephora. Guests were treated to blowouts and style tips from expert Rachel Zalis, while nibbling on goodies courtesy of eipcurious.com. The epic getaway concludes with tonight's Maroon 5 concert at Bowery Ballroom. This exclusive Maroon 5 concert is one way that American Express is rewarding multi-taskers, by bringing one of the hottest bands to fans tuning in at home from around the country.
Sounds like a great experience, right? But if you didn't win, this Maroon 5 live stream is a great consolation prize. Be sure to tune in at 8 p.m. EST (5 p.m. PST) for this evening's show, and rock out with the American Express Epic EveryDay Getaway. Click on the image above to view the live stream and share your thoughts about the show with the hashtag #AmexEveryDayLive.
