It’s no wonder Alexander Wang’s new favorite model is Anna Ewers; she’s basically everywhere you turn in the fashion industry, from the cover of Vogue Paris’ February issue to fronting a number of other advertising campaign this season. The German model returns as the face of Wang’s Spring 2015 collection, having previously modeled jeans for his spring denim campaign. Going in a completely different direction, Anna is captured on top of a party bus complete with disco lights and a buzzing energy as she sports Wang’s latest wares. Models Binx Walton, Dylan Xue, Lexi Boling, Sarah Brannon and Vanessa Moody are set to join the party once the ads break inside various fashion titles.

Are our forum members going to rain on Alexander Wang’s parade? “This is fantastic. Most of the campaigns this season have been so stoic and pretentious. It’s nice to see this style of photography as opposed to a cheapo studio shoot,” raved GivenchyHomme.
“Oh wow, this is so different!! Anna looks great too. I’m looking forward to Binx and Vanessa,” added Benn98, also in the mood for the campaign.
“Love Love Love! Anna kills it again. Looking forward to seeing the others,” shared an excited Mody, echoing everyone’s positive sentiments.
Nepenthes seemed up for it too: “This is what I want to see in advertising. Original, striking and impactful imagery! Plus, I’m so happy for Anna! And yay for Sarah Brannon!”
Also loving the campaign was zacatecas570 who enthused, “This looks great! I can’t wait to see more of this. I always love Steven + Wang and Anna’s team.”
“This makes up for her Vogue Paris cover!” declared Elite13.

Alright, it’s time we embrace it: The Bachelor‘s Sam Frost isn’t going anywhere. In fact, she’s now smack-bang on the cover of Maxim Australia for its February 2015 issue, and, although we’re lovers of fashion, the jilted bachelorette wears just a bangle and bikini bottoms for the glossy.
That’s right, she’s topless. Because what better way is there to say, “F*** you, Bachie,” than to pose topless on a major men’s mag? We can’t think of one…
But topless isn’t so unfamiliar for the 25-year-old blondie, who told the magazine that, during her time, many people have copped a flash of her upper lady parts.
“I couldn’t even count the amount of times my bikini top has awkwardly fallen off,” she explained. “A lot of people have seen my boobs, let’s just say that.”
And while hot-blooded men around Australia will be gawking at the cover every time they pass a newsagent, there’s a couple of boys who will have to slap a hand across their eyes before they’ll inevitably squeal the words “can’t unsee” for eternity.
“I’ll have to tell my brothers to avoid the newsagents for the month as I don’t think they’ll be too happy about it,” she told Maxim Australia.
To read the entire interview and see the full spread, be sure to pick up a copy of Maxim Australia‘s February issue.

Paris Hilton has been getting close with Australian model Jordan Barrett during Milan Fashion Week, with the pair spotted looking cosy at Milan’s Just Cavalli club over the weekend.
The 33-year-old heiress was booked to DJ Just Cavalli’s event, but that didn’t stop her from spending time with the Gold Coast-born dreamboat, who, at 18, is almost half her age.
A photo of Jordan’s arm around Paris was posted on both their Instagrams, plus another of the blonde socialite perched up to Jordan’s cheek for what looks like a sweet-nothings exchange or a sneaky face lick. (more…)
2015 isn’t off to a good start for model Laura Dundovic. who won’t stay on as an ambassador for Myer this year.

Although Laura has been an ambassador of the department store for five years, starting in 2009 after representing Australia in Miss Universe, her contract expired last month and will not be re-signed.
A Myer spokesperson said in a statement, “We continually review our stable of Myer ambassadors to ensure optimal alignment with our customer base and our significant events and sponsorship program.”
They continued, “Laura was a valued ambassador over a five year period, representing the business across a broad range of fashion, racing, store and community events and we wish her all the best for the future.”
To add insult to the injury, TV presenter Lauren Phillips and model Jodi Anasta will continue trotting along with the department store, both recently re-signing to join Myer regulars Jennifer Hawkins, Kris Smith and Kate Peck.
As the decades crawl by, beauty standards change. That goes for makeup, hair and body standards, the latter of which is shown in a series of infographics created by Greatist.com charting the evolution over the past 100 years of the perfect female body. And guess what? The ideals were just as virtually unattainable for a lot of women a century ago as they are now.
in the 1910s, women pulled their corsets into oblivion to cinch their waists. In the 20s, it was the sweet and petite boyish body that women wanted. Fast forward to the 80s, where tall, athletic women ruled and into the 90s when Kate Moss’ waifish figure was in. Body standards are like a pendulum, swinging from one extreme to the other, the only thing consistent are its chances of swinging back.
Today, a small waist and a big booty are all the rage, and who knows? By 2020, we could go be looking at a figure with an undefined waist, giant boobs and a flat butt. But if the charts do anything, it’s that though the shape of the ideal body has changed, the pressure on women and the lengths they will go to achieve it has not.
Though we would much prefer him in nothing at all, David Beckham’s gotta wear clothes sometime. In the video below, H&M taps the ex-footballer to choose and model his favorite pieces from the retailer’s spring “Modern Essentials” offerings.
“It’s something I’m really excited about, it’s all about things I wear day-to-day. Shirts, T-shirts, jeans, bomber jackets. We’ve kept at that. It’s literally stuff I wear day in and day out.” And surprise, y’all: he looks good in everything. Now that you know Beckham’s dream H&M wardrobe, you can run out and purchase everything in hopes that the man in your life might morph into your own personal version of Mr. Beckham. He won’t, but you know, a girl (or guy!) can dream.
Beckham’s H&M edit will be available online come March 5.
