Kylie Minogue Stays True to Her Showgirl Style for the 20th Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony

This little pocket rocket (otherwise known as Kylie Minogue) isn’t ready to hang up her showgirl heels just yet. The 46-year-old defied her age yet again in a crazy pink and black getup for the 20th Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony in Glasgow.

In an outfit ideal for one of her sold-out world tours during her prime, Kylie wore a pink with black mesh corset-style piece teamed with risqué thigh-high leather boots. Perhaps the most show-stopping element of the look was the over-the-top feather headpiece, easily adding a foot or two to her petite frame.

The Voice judge was oozing confidence in the revealing look, performing her classics like “The Loco-Motion” to a dancing crowd. With the 2018 Commonwealth Games taking place on Queensland’s Gold Coast, it seemed fitting that the night included Australian music royalty like Kylie and Jessica Mauboy.

Rose Byrne is the New Face of Oroton for Spring 2014

For Oroton’s Spring 2014 collection, the iconic Australian brand tapped one of our country’s greatest exports. Rose Byrne isn’t just a highly-acclaimed Aussie actress, she’s also got that natural beauty thing in the bag. It’s really a decision that needn’t be explained, but GM & Creative Director of the brand, Ana Maria Escobar, took to the brand’s e-zine, The Studio, to let us all in on why Rose was the perfect fit.

“She embodies everything I dream the brand and our customer aspires to be,” explained Ana. “She is intelligent, genuine, talented and beautiful, she really represents the Australian ‘relaxed glamour’ which we always refer to when talking about our brand.” 

Rose recalls seeing Oroton stores on her way to the city from her hometown of Sydney’s Balmain, and is proud to be fronting the prestigious brand. “There is no other Australian brand with such an iconic history and instinctive style,” she said.

London photographer Boo George led Rose’s two-day shoot, which involved a crew of 28 people. We’re sure Rose, who’s admitted she’s a little shy, wasn’t at all intimidated by the amount of people in the room.

Karlie Kloss’ Last Photoshoot Will Turn Your Stone Cold Heart to Mush

The world didn’t need yet another reason to love Karlie Kloss. She’s a gorgeous girl with a great attitude and she makes kookies– delicious cookies that help give healthy meals to the needy–she’s basically perfect. But Karlie’s penchant for charitable causes goes beyond yummy confections. The Victoria’s Secret model teamed with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make a young cancer patient’s dreams of posing with a high fashion model come true. 

Kloss recently wrapped up the sponsored shoot, which granted Karissa a chance to serve face alongside one of her favorite models. Kloss documented parts of the day on Instagram, posting a behind-the-scenes shot of a beaming Karissa and herself during some downtime at the shoot. “I am incredibly inspired by the strength and beauty of this gorgeous young woman,” the model captioned the sweet Instagram photo.

Marc Eckō Claims to Be Father of the Hipster Beard and Other Weird Things in New Ad Campaign

Marc Eckō is making a comeback, and he wants everyone to know about it. The founder of Complex magazine and popular 90s/early aughts streetwear brand Eckō Unltd., is returning to the design scene, after having sold Eckō Unltd. in 2009 — guess he just couldn’t leave the game alone. In 2013, he dove right back in at the helm of Cut & Sew, his contemporary menswear label. 

To let the world know that he’s back and better than ever, Eckō‘s people have released a series of ads pondering, “Where was Marc Eckō?” before they (sort of) explain what the designer was doing during his time away from the scene. The ads ran in Women’s Wear Daily, and while the concept of the campaign is cool (of course we’re interested to know what Eckō was up to during his four-year hiatus), the ads themselves are…well, they’re a little weird.

The first ran two weeks ago, picturing a bearded, tattooed fellow (not Eckō) inking Karl Lagerfeld‘s likeness on a woman’s calf. The accompanying blurb reads: “Seeking a change, Marc moved to a mythical place called ‘Brooklyn’ in search of artistic nourishment. Putting ink to skin, he developed a cult following as a tattoo artist. Marc would often work late hours, not shaving and inspired the man-grooming trend that would later be coined ‘The Hipster Beard.'”
