With all of Miley Cyrus’ intentionally shocking antics, it’s understandable that folks have strong opinions about the singer. Cyrus is all set to host the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend, but before her big gig, she paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live and shot a segment in which she goes undercover as an Australian reporter Janet to find out what people think of her. Of course, the spot is hilarious and Cyrus’ Australian accent is spot-on.
As the singer was in disguise, folks really let her have it. “I just like Taylor Swift better,” one man said. “I think she’s starving for attention and that’s why she’s doing it all crazy like that,” another observed before taking things up a notch saying, “The whole fabric of America is falling apart and she’s not doing anything to try to keep it together.” Yep. Because it’s the responsibility of a 22-year-old pop star to remedy the ills of our nation.

Watch the segment (complete with twerking) in the video above.
Stuart Weitzman is rolling out its very first television commercial and is tapping a familiar face to help make the big debut. Yes, you guessed it – Gisele Bündchen, who has starred in several of the brand’s previous campaigns, is involved and she is looking as gorgeous as ever in Weitzman’s footwear.
The commercial shows the model busting the electric slide (in a fetching pair of Weitzman KOKO stretch plonge leather peeptoe booties) alsongside a group of shirtless male models and one fellow in all black. The commerical, oddly enough, was inspired by Taylor Swift according to Weitzman. “This year, Taylor Swift asked for like, a dozen pairs for all of her changes [on the ‘1989 World Tour’],” he told WWD. I went to her show in Philly and I was floored. She’s big with all the 15-year-olds, but I wrote her a note that says, ‘You now have a grandfather as one of your fans.’ We make the shoes with extra cushion so she can dance and thought, ‘Hey, we make dance shoes…maybe we should find some way to show them off.’”
And so, we see Ms. Bünchen breaking it down, stomping and shimmying in some of Weitzman’s high heels to show just how comfortable the shoes are for a night (or day) full of dancing. Mario Testino was tapped to direct the commercial and he was the perfect man to capture Bündchen’s smooth moves.
The commercial is set to air during the MTV Video Music Awards August 30, but in the meantime, you can catch it in the video above.
We’re all guilty of succumbing to the social media trend of sharing a #ThrowbackThursday snap or, better still, looking out for those shared by our favourite celebs. Taking the trend one step further is new magazine L’Officiel Spain, which uses an image of Kate Moss from her school days in the 80s for its debut cover. It’s good to see that even a supermodel had that awkward teen stage, right? Surely, there are plenty of throwback pics from the numerous high-profile campaigns that she’s starred in over the years that the new mag could have chosen, but the publication was clearly after a more charming approach.
It’s such a personal image that many are even questioning whether Kate actually granted permission for the image to be used. Forum member Benn98 went so far as to say, “Is this a joke? It has to be. I’m not knocking the concept, it’s the actual shot which, well words cannot describe how cringe-worthy it looks. Kate must’ve obliged to this?”
GIVENCHYlover also had a valid point: “What’s the point? No one will recognize her.” It’s very true that she no longer resembles her schoolgirl years, so if L’Officiel Spain paid the usual hefty fee for an almost unrecognizable Kate to grace the front cover, you can’t help but think that it was money better spent elsewhere.
Sink or swim, this is one innovative cover that we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Remember that time Marc Jacobs accidentally posted a photo of his naked ass to Instagram, thinking he was sliding into someone’s DM but really he was just showing the world his toned booty? How could anyone forget? Well, Mr. Jacobs is making sure you remember. The designer posted a selfie to Instagram to show off a brand new T-shirt he’s selling in stores. The top shows Jacobs’ Instagram handle, themarcjacobs, and next to it the words “it’s yours to try,” which was the caption to the infamous belfie he took all those months ago.
Yep, it’s hilarious and honestly, with an ass like that, we don’t blame him for wanting to bring up the incident again. Can’t knock turning a potentially embarrassing situation into cold, hard cash.

The photographer posted an image to his Instagram picturing Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Nadja Auermann and Tatjana Patitz, heralding a supermodel reunion. He also posted a short teaser video clip of the reunion, directing followers to his Facebook page for a link to an extended behind-the-scenes clip of the shoot, posted on NOWNESS.
“The thing that works making with Peter memorable is just Peter, his energy. He loves women and that really comes across. He really sees the beauty in a mature woman through experience, through having children, through heartbreaks, through love… all of that Peter thinks adds to our beauty.”
We can’t wait to see the rest of the shoot, but for now, peep this look at the shoot with all some of your favorite supermodels – who look as stunning as ever.

Oh, hey! It’s Episode 10 and I’ve invited my good friend and bachelor buddy Holly Pearce to help me with tonights low-down. It’s been fun watching this season and reminiscing on some fond bachelor memories.
Holly and I actually shared a room with four other ladies, and, the truth is, we all slept in bunk beds. It was like school camp except in your 20s.
So, if you have been reading my recaps you would know Snezana and Heather are certainly my two front runners to win Sam’s heart, but last night threw a spanner in the works when Lana and Rachel crashed the mansion. (more…)
