Iggy Azalea’s braided crown at the 2015 Grammys in LA last night caused quite the meme frenzy, our favourite being the bird’s nest filled with blue eggs. But the celebrity hairstylist responsible, Ursula Stephen, isn’t terribly phased that social media is making fun of her work, and has explained her decision to style Iggy’s hair in a way which spawned names such as Heidi, Eggy, Challah and “German woman from Shrek”.

Less sleaze, please! Now that Dov Charney is out of the picture, American Apparel can press forward under its new CEO, Paula Schneider. And for those who aren’t too keen on the retailer’s racy image, this news might come as a delight.
Schneider is looking to uphold the brand’s edgy vibe, but cut back on the borderline (or sometimes downright) indecent image the label has cultivated in the past. Schneider says she wants to focus on American Apparel’s social consciousness and kick the smut to the curb, instead highlighting issues like gay rights and the company’s Made in America angle.
“There’s a way to tell our story where it’s not offensive,” Schneider said. “It is an edgy brand. And it will continue to be an edgy brand.”
So could this be the end of T&A and crotch shots for American Apparel? Possibly. And something tells us that the old image won’t be missed.

Her name is rapidly becoming recognized in households across the world and now her face is going to catch up. Canadian actress Sarah Gadon, who has starred in Cosmopolis, A Dangerous Method and Maps to the Stars, announced that she’s been tapped to front the Armani makeup campaign.
A native Torontonian and a clear favourite of fellow Canadian David Cronenberg (he directed all the aforementioned movies), the beauty was chosen because “Sarah has the most delicate, classically beautiful facial features, with her blonde hair, clear complexion and crystalline eyes, and for me she is an example of contemporary beauty,” Giorgio Armani said in a statement.
The first image to be released (though it’s unclear if it will make the final cut of the campaign) depicts Sarah’s flawless skin perfectly contoured as she sports spring’s hot new pastel hues, including delicate mauve eyeshadow and dusty rose lipstick. The look is finished with a defined eyebrow and gently tousled locks. The campaign was shot by Sølve Sundsbø and will launch worldwide in June.
The actress, who was recently nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for her role in 2014’s Enemy, announced her new appointment on Instagram. She will next be seen in the thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax, starring alongside Aaron Paul and Jamie Dornan.
If rumors are to be believed, Marco Zanini may not be out of a job for much longer. The designer recently left his post as creative director at the revived house of Schiaparelli, after a rather brief stint at the label. But a possible opening at Emilio Pucci could have Mr. Zanini gainfully employed pretty soon. WWD reports that the designer could be a possible successor once Peter Dundas exits the label. Rumors are swirling that Dundas is on his way out and may be headed for Roberto Cavalli.
For now, these are just rumors as Zanini told WWD that he and Pucci aren’t in talks. We’re guessing the involved parties will want to keep everything on the low, at least until the time of Dundas’ rumored departure. Either way, it will be interesting to see who replaces Dundas should he leave the label.
Magazines often dedicate issues to a single model. Doutzen Kroes graces Vogue Netherlands’ March issue, adding three fabulous covers to her ever-growing portfolio, and now Vogue Germany dedicates its March issue to Anna Ewers. The new model gets not one, but four new covers (and counting) for the celebratory issue. Anna took time out of her busy schedule to shoot with Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Luigi & Iango, Daniel Jackson and Camilla Akrans for the occasion. Demarchelier’s cover (below) features the German stunner serving up natural beauty while wearing a suede Gucci coat.
Our forum members were quick to descend on the thread once the cover surfaced. “She’s flawless, go Anna!” Oxymore raved.
“So lovely! I like everything about it: the color scheme, the styling, the layout, the model choice…” added kokobombon in agreement.
Forum member gazebo shared the same sentiments: “Love love love. She is Germany’s supermodel, the perfect choice for March. Love the simple home girl, model next door look.”
“Anna looks fresh and beautiful on the cover. What a star she is!” complimented bluestar.
TeeVanity agreed and simply stated that it’s “a very gorgeous cover.” We agree!
“Anna looks stunning, completely deserves an issue dedicated to her,” declared fluorescentbeat.
