Maxim Australia has released its highly anticipated Hot 100 for 2015, with Delta Goodrem ranking first on the list of “gifted and gorgeous Australian women who have impressed — and undressed — this year”.

30-year-old Delta’s duties include the covetable cover shot for the November 2015 issue, posing topless in a pool of water in one of her most revealing shoots yet. While it kind of reminds us of Sam Frost’s cover shoot this February, it’s a step up from Iggy Azalea’s glittery 2014 Maxim HOT 100 cover last year.

Both Sam and Iggy join Delta in the list’s top 10, along with models Jennifer Hawkins and Miranda Kerr, presenter Samantha Armytage and more. Check out the entire top 10 below, and pick up a copy of the mag from today for the complete 100. (more…)

Richie Strahan Goes Bananas for Former Miss Universe Renae Ayris

Our hearts broke in two when Sam Frost sent Richie Strahan home on last night’s The Bachelorette, but you’ll be pleased to know he’s still single and ready for that four-letter word. We do kind of wonder, though, other than Sam, who is Richie’s type?

Speaking to Popsugar Australia, Richie hesitantly admitted that he’s got a bit of a keen eye for local model Renae Ayris, who hasn’t been linked to anyone romantically since she broke up with AFL player Tom Bellchambers last December.

“You know that Renae girl? Renae Ayris? She’s like a Miss Universe Australia…,” Richie replied when asked if he has a “celebrity crush”.

Cute that he considers her a celebrity when he’s probably more recognisable than her right now, but he implied that the infatuation started well before his television experience.

“Oh my God. Ages and ages ago, I followed her on Instagram and every now and then I’d just see a picture of her head and I’d be like, ‘My God! It’s incredible!’ and then I’d have to put my phone away. She’s out of control!” he laughed. 

Sigh. That’s kind of the way we feel when you come up in our news feeds, Richie.

Catherine McNeil Wows in Fur on Vogue Spain’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Admit it: You haven’t exactly been overwhelmed by a cover of Vogue Spain lately. But is the magazine about to turn a corner with its November offering? We’ve been stewing over the newly released cover for a few days now and have come to the conclusion that it’s a winner. Catherine McNeil was tapped by the magazine to follow in the footsteps of Andreea Diaconu and Caroline Trentini as one of Spanish Vogue‘s cover girls of 2015. Shot by Ezra Petronio, the Aussie beauty wraps up in a fabulous Michael Kors fur, leaving us a little hot under the collar.

“This is the kind of classic Vogue Spain cover I like,” said A.D.C. within moments of the cover surfacing, setting us off on a high note.

“Love this! Reminds me of the 80s and 90s,” shared a more than thrilled DutchHomme.

MON was quick to proclaim, “A return to form!!! I love it!! It’s definitely the Vogue Spain that I used to love!!”

Also showing the cover some love was Benn98: “Fur on a cover, and so much of it? Love this! I think they did this with Gigi [Hadid] as well. The cover looks very luxe and Catherine looks good. Piqued to see the rest.”

“Yes, reminds me of Gigi’s cover, but I liked that one a lot, so definitely don’t mind this,” echoed tigerrouge.

“Yes, yes, yes, she pulls off that fur coat, love it,” declared Miss Dalloway, who later returned to the thread to add, “You need someone like Cat to pull off all that fur, and that kind of styling, because even with tattoos, and side breast, she still doesn’t make it vulgar.”

You’re sure to adore Catherine’s cover story. Check it out along with the rest of Vogue Spain’s latest content and drop us a comment here.

Zendaya Slams Magazine for Blatant Photoshopping

We’re officially fans of all things Zendaya. Along with her epic sartorial sense and willingness to try any hairstyle once, we love that the 19-year-old actress seems more mature and grounded than people twice her age. Take Giuliana Rancic, the Fashion Police host who used a tired stereotype to make fun of Zendaya’s locs at the Oscars. Zendaya responded with such dignity and class that Giuliana almost shed actual tears in her apology. Now Zendaya’s speaking out for body acceptance after a magazine airbrushed her hips and torso in a recent shoot. (more…)
