There are a few things one can expect from a Lena Dunham online shop: an item bearing the naked female body and products bearing feminist slogans, to name a few. Her new e-commerce site, an extension of the “Lenny Letter” newsletter, has all of the above.
LENNY x Funcult ‘FEMINIST’ Banner, $46, lennyletter.kungfustore.com.
Launched Thanksgiving weekend (just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday), the Lenny Letter online shop sells fringe ‘Feminist’ banners, ‘Dismantle the Patriarchy’ patches and incense holders hand-painted with naked women’s bodies. Because, of course it does. (more…)
It has become evident on our forums that the December covers have been seriously lacking and last but not least is Vogue Italia‘s festive offering, which surfaced earlier today. Going all-out in true celebratory style, Italian Vogue invited photographer Tim Walker (sobs for Steven Meisel) to produce five different covers to close out 2015. The most remarkable of them is the one that features modeling sensation Kate Moss, who stars on her first cover since 1996!
Kate’s cover, along with the other four, got our attention pretty quickly. “Is this Kate’s first VI cover since 1996? She looks like Kasia Struss though LOL,” pointed out russianelf.
Also acknowledging the joyous occasion was Kanna, writing, “On Kate grabbing another VI cover in 20 years: as long as you stick to the business there is always a chance.” (more…)
We knew Kanye West would celebrate his “Shoe of the Year” Award win with an epic rant. The rapper-cum-designer complains incessantly about how he’s treated in the fashion industry, claiming he’s discriminated against for not being gay and even calling out journalists by name. Of course, the second he gets industry recognition, we knew he’d use his platform to lambast all the critics who doubted him. In a 20-minute speech at the Footwear News Achievement Awards, Kanye exceeded our expectations.
Check out 8 things we learned from his speech:
1. He can laugh at himself:
“If you don’t like 10-minute profanity-ridden speeches that end with a presidential bid, you can go to the bathroom.”
2. He once gave unsolicited advice to Phillip Lim:
“I would come by [Phillip’s] studio and play him songs and I’d see fabrics he was working with and asked him to take this girl’s suit jacket and turn it into a guy’s suit jacket,” said West. “If anyone’s seen ‘Runaway,’ I stand on top of the piano, and Phillip custom made that [jacket] for me.”
3. He wasted Giuseppe Zanotti’s money:
“Do you know how much money of [Giuseppe Zanotti’s] I wasted doing sample after sample, learning how to put shoes together right there in the factory? He let me do everything I could think of, including the bone-bead shoes that were in my first amazingly slammed-to-death first fashion show in Paris.” (more…)
Kerri Sackville has kicked off a campaign to stop misogynist trolls, after seeing the disgusting comments, including rape and violence threats, fellow writer Clementine Ford received on her socials this week.
Using the hashtag #EndViolenceAgainstWomen, a secret Facebook page with over 12,000 members are shaming Clementine’s bullies by naming them in tweets online.
Who’s getting over the unrealistic, filtered and photoshopped images appearing in their newsfeeds?
Don’t worry, us too. We’re probably going to see less photoshopping and perfect angles and more of the real stuff, though, with a smart Aussie start-up introducing a new app which is kind of genius.
Creating a nifty little way to kick those Facetune and filter fiends to to the curb, the app, Called Bomb’d, works by requesting your friend send a photo of what they’re doing, automatically activating their camera and giving them only seven seconds to get whatever shot they want.
Then you receive that photo in all its unfiltered glory, right then and there, hair strands out of place and all. The friend does not have the opportunity to chuck on a Valencia or pretend to be at the beach when they’re actually in bed soaking in the hangover and regret. (more…)
The Summer Hits at The Star launch party went down last night, December 3, with everyone from Jodi Anasta to Daniel Macpherson stepping out to celebrate Sydney’s hottest new venue.
With astroturf and flamingo croquet, it sure did look like a hoot, and the outfits weren’t so shabby either. Some baffling and somewhat dated, others understated yet brilliant or just ridiculously on-point.
Check out our favourite looks from The Star’s Sky Terrace in the gallery below. (more…)
