Ambassadors to Join Nicole Richie for Sydney’s Fashionable Autumn Racing Carnival

Just because the hurrah of Spring Racing carnival has come to a close, it doesn’t mean that Autumn 2015 pieces won’t get the chance to be styled into trackside appropriate get-ups. Sydney Autumn Racing is kicking off this weekend, with a mix of ambassadors officially announced yesterday, February 24, by the Australian Turf Club at Rosehill racecourse.

Nicole Richie is obviously the biggest drawcard for the event, nabbing the ambassador role for next month’s Golden Slipper Carnival, but she will be joined by some home-grown favourites for the season. The lineup includes The X Factor judge Natalie Bassingthwaighte, model Erika Heynatz, animal doctor Josie Gollan, jockey Tommy Berry, horse trainer Edwards Cummings, TV personality James Tobin and sports commentator Peter Sterling.  (more…)

Tom Ford May Have Already Picked the Star of His New Movie

Tom Ford’s new movie is coming and while there is still a lot of information we don’t know about the film, some details are slowly trickling out. Ford’s film is loosely based on a book which he has not named, though he has mentioned recently that he’s finished writing the screenplay.

Joe Zee and Yahoo Style were in attendance at the designer’s star-studded Fall 2015 show in Los Angeles and sat down with Ford to get the deets on his latest. Zee also inquired after the designer’s upcoming film, asking if the movie could be “maybe starring someone in your front row?” The designer confirmed that yes, it is possible that we may see one of the many celebrities in the audience that night. 

So, the question is, who could it be? Anjelica Huston? Reese Don’t-Ask-About-My-Dress Witherspoon? Julianne Moore? Scarlett Johansson? Or might it be (dare we dream?) Beyoncé?

Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see.

Abercrombie’s Look Policy Makes Its Way to the Supreme Court

Abercrombie’s look policy has consistently come back to bite the retailer in the rear, thanks to the strict requirements it puts on its employees. Seven years ago, a young Muslim applicant, Samantha Elauf from Tulsa, was denied a job because she wears a hijab, so she took Abercrombie to court saying the company didn’t hire her because of her religion. 

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will have to decide whether Abercrombie’s actions infringed on Elauf’s religious rights or if the failure to hire her is just the retailer sticking to a company look policy. This is not the first time the retailer has come under fire over its treatment of employees who wear the hijab. In 2010, Meni Khan sued the company for firing her after she declined to remove her hijab for work. Abercrombie argued that the look policy is the foundation of its brand, insinuating that allowing anyone to go outside those rules creates “undue hardship” for the retailer. (more…)

Mariacarla Boscono Captivates on Harper’s Bazaar Spain (Forum Buzz)

Our forum members made it clear that the Spanish edition of Harper’s Bazaar had become a bore. Now, after a new team was introduced to the title earlier this year, the first covers are out and are a huge success. Mariacarla Boscono stars on not one, but two covers for the magazine’s big March 2015 issue, giving us some fierce realness on both. We’re captivated by the cover with the red masthead (pictured below right), which we assume is for subscribers. The Italian stunner was photographed by Txema Yeste for the occasion and we’re loving it!

Forum members were quick to voice their views once they digested the covers. “Really really like the second one even if it reminds me of Vanessa Paradis for Vogue Paris,” posted Oxymore, making a comparison to a previous magazine cover.

“Love the second cover, way more striking. The first looks like a preview cover, and probably closer to the old Spanish Bazaar,” Benn98 responded.

Also showing some love was kokobombon: “I think that the covers are lovely, love the styling in both of them.”

Nepenthes shared the same sentiments: “Both covers are stunning. Mariacarla always has a very intense, magnetic presence!”

Harper’s Bazaar Spain is back!! So happy to see this magazine back on track. I’m personally not a huge fan of Mariacarla, but she looks quite electric here,” proclaimed marsnoop2.

The issue is sure to fly from the shelves. “They should have done just one cover. The second one is pretty good. Happy to see Eugenia as the editor in chief. She’s just great,” Creative credited.

Check out some previews of Mariacarla’s cover story and add your own two cents here.

Watch: Christina Aguilera Does a Spot-On Impression of Britney Spears

Christina Aguilera has an unbelievable singing voice and it turns out that belting out the high notes isn’t her only talent. She’s actually pretty good at impressions, too — or at least, she’s got her Britney Spears impression absolutely nailed. The singer appeared last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and played a little “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” a game in which the player has to sing a song in the style of a certain artist. 

When the wheel spun, prompting Christina to sing “This Little Piggy” as Britney, we get probably the best impression of Brit-Brit we’ve ever heard. Seriously. Close your eyes, and you think you’re actually listening to Britney.

Christina also does impressions of Cher and Shakira, but in our opinion, her Britney is tops. Watch Xtina in the hilarious clip above.

Terrorists Threaten to Target Canadian, US and UK Malls

Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based Islamic terrorist group, has released a video calling for an attack on malls in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. The faction is urging followers to target Minnesota’s Mall of America, Oxford Street and two Westfield locations in London, as well as the West Edmonton Mall in Canada. 

The group divulged coordinates for the Mall of America, so that militants may plan for attack. The West Edmonton Mall was listed as a goal for attack as it is the largest mall in North America. In the meantime, the Mall of America is on watch to make sure these threats do not come to fruition. “We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” the mall said in a statement. “As always, we take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately.”

Let’s hope that none of this terrorist organization’s plans ever get off the ground.
