Courtney Love couldn’t have picked a better time to venture into fashion design. The rock icon’s singular 90s style has been popping up everywhere lately, even on the Saint Laurent spring runway. Courtney is everyone’s grunge muse so why not skip the middleman and design a collection herself? She’s doing just that with her first-ever line for Nasty Gal. (more…)
L’Oreal just solved your sunburn problem. The beauty giant released a high-tech skin patch that monitors UV exposure and alerts wearers when it’s time to apply sunscreen or head for the shade. “My UV Patch,” created in partnership with PCH engineering firm, looks like any other temporary heart-shaped tattoo at first glance. But the patch contains a Band-Aid-like sensor with photosensitive dyes that fade when exposed to UV rays, The New York Times reports.
To assess your exposure to UV rays, you simply photograph the patch with your smartphone and upload it to an app (available on iOs and Android devices). The waterproof patch lasts five days, which is about the span of your beach vacation. It’s disposable, environmentally safe and can be worn on any exposed skin. (more…)
Next to wearing the Fantasy bra, the greatest honor a Victoria’s Secret Angel can receive is fronting the cover of the brand’s swimwear catalog. That coveted opportunity goes to Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk this year. “I was freaking out,” she gushed to People. “I literally thought they were playing a joke on me. I know this is such a big deal, and I am so honored to be selected as the cover model. We have been on so many swim trips but you never go in thinking that is going to happen.”
The 27-year-old graces the catalog cover emerging from the water in a skimpy crochet bikini with the straps undone. Shot by Guy Aroch in Bora Bora, the stunning photograph captures a “natural moment,” Hosk explained. “I threw on swimwear and we had this idea that I would rise up from the ocean. I started untying the swimsuit and it started to fall off; it was a very natural moment. Those are just the kind of moments that Guy [Aroch] likes to capture. We all knew it was a great shot, but I had no idea it would be the cover.” (more…)
You’d think magazines would kick-start 2016 by giving us something new and exciting to deliberate over. Unfortunately, the British edition of Harper’s Bazaar insists on delivering the same old subjects, ushering in Cate Blanchett once again to help shift copies of the February issue. Cate has done her fair share of rounds on some of our favorite fashion monthlies lately, fronting Vogue Australia and W magazine. This time around, the Aussie actress was captured wearing a stunning Erdem and Giorgio Armani outfit by photographer Norman Jean Roy.
Within seconds of the cover dropping, our forums failed to show enthusiasm. “I am beyond tired of this woman. Please let us miss you Cate!!!!” A.D.C. exclaimed in frustration.
“Love Cate and think she’s an excellent actress, but to me she falls under the ‘same old, same old’ cover stars category that we see constantly throughout every year,” Handbag Queen chimed in, echoing the same sentiments. (more…)
