Alice Burdeu Breathes Life Into a Boring Dress at the ‘Women of Style’ Awards

InStyle and Audio hosted their “Women of Style” event at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion the other night, honoring stars in categories including business, beauty, fashion and entertainment. There was no category for “most monochromatic” up for grabs, but if there was it could have gone to basically anyone who showed up. Montana Cox wore a lovely white lace skirt set, Cheyenne Tozzi something thigh-split and otherwise forgettable, and Jesinta Campbell a drop crotch suit I would rather pretend didn’t happen. (Props for the Black Swan headpiece though.)

I’m 100% here for black and white, but against that backdrop – and when you know Nicole Trunfio is probably showing up – it was hard to miss Alice Burdeu with her deep hair and Crayola cobalt blue (though otherwise also forgettable) maxi dress. I’ve had a personal vendetta against dark red hair since I tried to bleach it out of my own hair in high school and ended up with something best described as fluorescent brass, but Alice almost makes me want to try it again. If I do I will also be dying everything in my wardrobe bright blue, because clearly this is the most striking color combination since… well, black and white probably. Well played.

Watch: Celebrities Read Your Meanest Tweets

After watching this video, you may want to rethink your policy on tweeting mean things about celebrities. 

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel Live ran a clip starring so many famous faces it'll blow your head up — Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, Ashton Kutcher, Matthew McConaughey and way, way more. Each celebrity was there to read one of the Internet's meanest tweets, but about themselves. The results are, as you might expect, hilarious and slightly affecting.

Did you watch? Do you expect me to start preaching about those shiny people now? Do you expect me to tell you to stop mean tweeting, because you might hurt poor Emma Stone's feelings? Well, I'm not going to do that. In practical terms, of course celebrities are real people with real feelings. And if you're friends with one or you see one on the street, you should be humane. But realistically, the chances of a random celebrity actually seeing your vile tweet is close to negative. You don't have to consider their feelings in the slightest. BUT, that still doesn't mean you should go swinging your bitchiness around like some sort of Karl Lagerfeld

What do people get out of being cruel on the Internet? Most of this vile commentary sounds like it's coming from some weird, angry place. Personally, I think we would all be far better served using that excess energy to figure out how to solve our own problems, instead of lashing out at beautiful famous people who don't give two shits about what's happening in our lives. Eff them. Your hatred fuels their fame. If you're tired of looking at someone's stupid face, then stop paying attention to it — and start paying attention to yourself.

See Your Favorite Designers Twist Themselves Into Their Own Brand Logos

The most successful designers are one with their label. They embody their brand image — think of how Ralph Lauren's moneyed, WASPy image corresponds to the carefree preppiness of his Polo line. Well, we're bringing you all here today because one artist decided to literalize that connection.

Below, we've pulled a couple of selections from Dutch graphic designer Mike Frederiqo's 'Logo' series. You can see the rest, as well as some of his other work, over on his Tumblr

20 Reasons We’re Wishing Naomi Campbell a Very Happy Birthday

44 years ago today, a catwalk queen was born. Today is legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell's birthday and there's no denying she's as fabulous as ever, not to mention she doesn't look a day over 29. #werque. The UK-born diva has shown us how to walk, talk, throw shade, and in some cases, cell phones. She continues to be a muse to designers and editors and inspires us to be confident queens that don't take smack from anyone.

Her reputation might be dubious to some, but we like to think of Naomi as a stern mother who is in charge of her s**t. Happy Birthday, Naomi, here's 20 reasons why we're celebrating:

1. Nobody’s messing with her walk

Flashback: Vogue Paris March 2007 with Natasha Poly by Inez & Vinoodh

For our flashback series this week, I thought we would take a look at something hot and exciting, getting us in the mood for the season around the corner. The cover of Vogue Paris March 2007 is a winter-warmer (March being typically cold here). Natasha Poly graces the issue, photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. The Russian model dons a Gucci dress and clutch bag, whilst soaking up the rays during a shoot in the Seychelles.

The gorgeousness continues inside the magazine, which features a 20-page fashion shoot with Natasha and Freja Beha Erichsen. For the story entitled 'Soleil de Minuit,' Emmanuelle Alt's styling is perfect. Inez and Vinoodh have truly captured the spirit of what I consider to be the ultimate summer fashion story, done to the highest of standards — the images scream luxury. We see clothing from Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Max Mara, Christian Dior and Jil Sander, not to mention the idyllic location.

Also inside the 402-page issue are fashion stories from Craig McDean, Mark Segal, Peter Lindbergh and David Sims. We see appearances from models such as Lara Stone, Jessica Miller, Suvi Koponen and Coco Rocha. Something for everyone's tastes, to say the least.

Peruse the contents (and maybe even see a comment of yours from back in the day) in the thread here.
