Australia finally has its first engaged couple to come out of The Bachelor franchise (Sam Frost and Blake Garvey’s short-lived union doesn’t count) thanks to Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski.

And although The Bachelor Season 3’s winning couple only announced the news last week, reports by Woman’s Day and Herald Sun are already saying that Sam and Snez will be married in a television special. Yep, we’d tune in.

The reports come after New Idea‘s claims that the pair were close to inking a deal for a program which would follow their relationship post-bachie mansion.  (more…)

The suspense is over now, though, with Nicole Trunfio and her son, Zion, announced as models for the couturier’s highly anticipated range with the Aussie department store. (more…)

Did This Givenchy Ad Really Need 27 Models? (Forum Buzz)

Leave it to Riccardo Tisci to bring his A game when it comes to casting his latest advertising campaign for Givenchy. We were teased about the high-profile shoot via Tisci’s Instagram last month and now the finished product is here for us to deliberate over. Veteran models Mariacarla Boscono, Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Iselin Steiro and Gemma Ward are joined by newbies Isis Bataglia, Lexi Boling, Leila Goldkuhl, Kris Gottschalk, Imaan Hammam, Issa Lish, Lineisy Montero and Greta Varlese for the ads, which were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott across several locations in New York.

Our forums reacted immediately. “The behind-the-scenes photos are much better and more interesting than the actual ad,” acknowledged gazebo right away, unwilling to get us off to a healthy start.

“The casting for me is the biggest letdown and I think some of the choices are incredibly questionable,” wrote Nomar. (more…)

Tess Holliday Blasts Victoria’s Secret for Limited Beauty Standards

Victoria’s Secret isn’t winning over any fans with its lack of commitment to diversity. Earlier this month, androgynous model Rain Dove slammed the lingerie brand for its narrow definition of beauty. This week, Tess Holliday is taking Victoria’s Secret to task for its lack of body diversity. “They are perpetuating the image of what’s wrong with America and with society in general, that you have to look a certain way — like a Victoria’s Secret Angel — to feel beautiful and be sexy,” she told Yahoo in a video interview.

This isn’t the first time the plus-size model addressed Victoria’s Secret. She once posted a lingerie picture on Instagram, writing: “If Victoria’s Secret needs a plus-size angel… call me. PS DUH us fuller ladies like to wear lingerie & look sexy. Get with it.” In September of this year, she admonished them for not carrying plus-sizes in stores. Victoria’s Secret has yet to acknowledge her comments. “I don’t think they cared,” Holliday said. “They probably didn’t look up from their glitter and angel body spray — or money!” (more…)

Cara Delevingne Slams Paparazzo for Upskirt Photo

Cara Delevingne’s relationship with the paparazzi has been tenuous at best. The supermodel famously ranted about the vicious shutterbugs in September, revealing that she didn’t even feel safe in her own city. The paps even followed her into McDonald’s once and harassed her while she was pouring herself a soda (plus, this happened).

Her latest encounter with the paparazzi was disturbing to say the least. Cara revealed that a paparazzo tried to take a photo up her skirt in London yesterday.

The paparazzi is known for hurling obscenities and approaching celebrities in ways that feel vaguely threatening. But Cara’s experience takes things too far. It’s a clear-cut case of sexual harassment.

She called for suggestions on how to defend herself, jokingly tweeting, “Eggs?” But at this point, it’s high time that stricter laws were set that govern how paparazzi conducts themselves. In the meantime, we’ll have eggs on standby. You know, in case Cara needs us.

Damien lost his position at ELLE Australia to take up what he thought was his “dream job” at L’Officiel, but now believes that the internationally recognised title is “not the right size and cut” for him, mUmBRELLA reports.

“I love the brand (but we’ve all made the mistake of buying something just because of the label) and wish the Australian title well in finding someone better suited to their unique style,” he said in a statement.

Damien revealed that he has learned a lot from this experience and is now vowing to search “for a more flattering fit”. He said, “This was to be my dream job but today I’m making room for new dreams.”
