It’s hard not to praise a magazine for giving a model her first Vogue cover, so when Vogue Thailand handed Devon Windsor the cover of its August 2015 issue, it was immediately brought over to our forums for discussion. The Victoria’s Secret regular was photographed by Yu Tsai for the proud moment, posing poolside wearing a little black Louis Vuitton number as she plays with her hair for the camera.
All things considered, the cover gives us major déjà vu. “It’s like a cheap knock-off of Vogue Paris. The font, the layout, the vibe. This to me feels like a VP Feb issue shot by Inez & Vinoodh,” MON pointed out right away.
“I’m not sold on it. Looks like some ersatz VP to me. Glad for Devon, but they have such unexpected model choices,” added Benn98.
In agreement was Bertrando3: “Vogue Paris look-a-like indeed and yes, she looks very uncomfortable.”
Valentine27 later echoed, “I agree with the Vogue Paris similarities. It could have been a nice cover if the hairstyle was different, it ruins it for me.”
Also not a fan of the cover was Nomar. “This looks so cheap,” he announced.
“Hideous cover all thanks to the Photoshop. It’s like a flyer to some Friday night event at a fancy club,” said Urban Stylin.

After waiting for what has literally been decades, British actress Joanna Lumley, who plays the iconic Patsy Stone in Absolutely Fabulous, has revealed that a film based on the Brit cult classic television show will begin shooting in October.
During an interview on a British chat show, she excitedly divulged that all of our old favourites will be reuniting for the film, written by Jennifer Saunders who plays the quirky Edina Monsoon. She tipped that it’ll all be set on location, with the South of France no doubt being the luxurious location of choice.
Speculation surrounding a movie has been particularly rife since early last year after Saunders was spotted attending the Jasper Conran show at London Fashion Week. Perhaps she was doing some much-needed research since the way in which Fashion Week operates is completely different from Ab Fab’s heyday. The once exclusive event is now open to bloggers and not a second goes by without seeing an iPhone in the air as something is Instagrammed or tweeted. We can’t wait to see how Patsy and Eddy have evolved with the changes.
We’ll be first in line to watch the new Ab Fab film and are already guessing which trends the hilarious duo will be donning. While you wait for the big premiere, enjoy some of the best highlights from the original series below.
Nova’s Red Room Global Tour concluded in Sydney last night as Adam Lambert and Jason Derulo took to the stage of Marquee nightclub at The Star. The entertainers performed for a few lucky fans, including 28 lucky competition winners who had followed the tour for the last eleven days throughout Dublin, London and Dubai.
Of course this was a great chance for our local talent to showcase some seriously fashionable looks, and we’ve rounded up some of our favourites from the red carpet below.
Jessie J rocked a wrap dress from Topshop paired with fishnet-esque boots by Jimmy Choo, a similar kind to those seen in Demi Lovato’s “Cool For The Summer” film clip. While we love these pieces individually, and give Jessie props for thinking outside the (shoe) box, this pairing is a little misleading. Is The Voice Australia judge heading out to da club or the hotel spa? Either way, count us in! (more…)
So, does it look like we have some sure front runners? Don’t be fooled, I can pretty much predict what is going to happen next and it’s not what you think. Kind of scary, really, but I did live in this mansion for three months.
Let’s talk first date and, may I add, first rose. Our gorgeous yoga-girl Sarah is definitely ruffling up a few feathers in the house. Sarah seems sweet, she has that girl-next-door look about her. I know firsthand when one girl gets more attention in the house, it’s a definite game-on feeling!
It’s obvious that the girls see Sarah as a threat, although, if history repeats itself, the first date doesn’t always get you the last. But, you never know, The Bachelor has already thrown us some twists and turns this year — first the white rose and now the ladies get to chose who goes on a single date next week, this just gets better and better.

Model Jesinta Campbell has proved once again that she’s so much more than just a pretty face, speaking up about the Adam Goodes controversy during Today‘s Mixed Grill segment this morning.
It has been revealed that the Indigenous Sydney Swans star is considering retirement, after being consistently booed on the AFL field.
This follows a war dance he performed publicly as a post-try celebration earlier this year, dividing the sports world as to whether or not the booing is motivated by racism.
“Booing is a public form of bullying, and Adam has come out and said that it is affecting to him so everyone needs to stop,” urged Jesinta. “It’s affecting his welfare, it’s affecting his family and his friends, and it needs to stop.”
WSJ.Magazine doesn’t get the recognition it truly deserves and, once again, the publication has churned out another striking cover. The magazine unveiled its September 2015 cover featuring Freja Beha Erichsen, photographed by Lachlan Bailey, in the great outdoors clutching a cute baby panda lamb (cue the awws). But sine the Danish model wears a thick fur coat from Louis Vuitton (styled by Ludivine Poiblanc), we declare a huge styling mishap that our forums cannot overlook.
“Lovely cover, how I love to see a model with an animal. Freja looks cute,” wrote burbuja8910 right away.
“Cute? Wearing a fur coat while cuddling a lamb is cute? LOL. A tad morbid to me. I enjoy furs so it’s not a matter of animal-activism. It’s just creepily inappropriate and insensitive of an image of a model cocooned in a huge fur coat while cuddling a live animal,” fired back Phuel.
Also not feeling the decision was orchidee: “Freja looks lovely, but I agree that there’s something super sinister about wearing a huge shearling coat while holding a lamb. ‘I’m wearing your mother and father right now. And you’re next!'”
In agreement was justaguy. “Sweet cover, but it is a bit strange with her wearing fur (even if it’s fake) and holding a baby lamb,” he noted.
HeatherAnne shed some light on the issue, writing, “I love it and think it makes for a stunning image. Fashion has always been provocative. I personally prefer this to the sexualization of young teens, or the culturally offensive stuff, the glamorization of hard drugs, etc. Though I can certainly understand, and respect, why others would be disturbed by it.”
