Following Style.com’s closure two months ago, Australian fashion muse and leader on the street style frontier Yasmin Sewell has been named fashion director of the website. That’s right, you can stop pondering on Style.com’s return because it’s coming back with a bang next year under the helm of Yasmin’s style know-how.
The site, which acted as a viable online resource for fashion, beauty and lifestyle for over fifteen years, is introducing a new commerce-focused version of the website, scheduled to launch in 2016. According to The Cut, this will roll out in the UK, followed by the US. (more…)
Aussie girl Bridget Malcolm has made her Victoria’s Secret runway debut in New York City on Tuesday, slaying in a biker-inspired ensemble including tie-up leather shorts, studded fingerless gloves, ankle boots, a patched vest and choker.
It’s a classic case of good girl gone bad and homegirl was rocking them badass vibes as Selena Gomez performed alongside her strut. It’s a shame she couldn’t contribute a fierce smize to the rough get-up, but as she said in a recent Mornings interview, “You get to go out there and smile which you never get to do on a runway.” She did rep the devil horns hand gesture at the end of the runway, though, so not all is lost.

Ruby Rose was back on her home turf for GQ Australia‘s Men of the Year Awards last night, taking home the Woman of the Year title with a heartwarming speech so raw, honest and heartbreaking that the actress was in tears saying it.
After expressing how lucky she feels to be able to be her true self and be celebrated for it, Ruby took a moment to acknowledge those who have supported her along the way, including her friend Courtney. “I had to lie and tell her it wasn’t a black tie event or she wouldn’t come and I want to give this award to her,” Ruby explained.
“Her mum recently passed away of brain cancer, and for a year she was in the same hospital bed and Courtney was by her side, and that to me is a strong woman. Never did she say, ‘Why me?’ Never did she complain. And, literally, she was my rock throughout this past year and I just want to say to Kerri and to Courtney, thanks,” she continued.

Courtney revealed that Ruby shared some more heartfelt words with her at the after-party. “She said, ‘You have so many memories of your mum before she passed and a lot of them were ill memories, now you have something really positive and uplifting to remember her by now that she has gone. This award is for her, for you and this night will always remind you of that’.”
For anyone who’s ever looked after a loved one as they slowly declined, you’ll know how special and meaningful those words are.
There’s been a lot of buzz around the value of social media recently (thanks in no small part to Essena O’Neill), with countless users ironically using the cyber platform to express their point of view surrounding likes, followers and comments and what this attention means. Because what ever happened to real world problems anyway?
She’s taken to social media since, because it served her so well last time, to respond to the many fans and trolls labelling her as “attention seeking” and “delusional” due to her seemingly relatable engagement level. Ouch! Cassi proceeded to reassure the online community that her post was “just a bit of fun”, thanking everyone for participating in her “games” and stating that “it’s been fun watching the reactions of people”.

Andreja Pejic and Caitlyn Jenner are two strong and inspiring women who have opened up an unprecedented conversation about the transgender community, the battles they face and obstacles they have overcome through their public transitions, so we can’t think of two better people to spark up a friendship.
And it looks like the pair finally got their big opp, with Andreja sharing a picture with Caitlyn and designer Jeremy Scott at the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year Awards earlier this week. “Finally had the pleasure of meeting this amazing woman. Congrats on becoming Glamour Woman of The Year,” the Bosnian-born Aussie model wrote.
We know that Caitlyn and Candis Cayne are good pals, as are Andreja and Laverne Cox, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for a squad Taylor Swift ain’t got nothing on.
You may recall when rumors first started spreading about Kylie Jenner’s lip injections and the reality TV star remained decidedly mum. Instead of addressing it directly, she sent out a sassy tweet directed at the tabloids:
Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.
Of course, Kylie eventually confessed to getting lip fillers on her reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” because…ratings. And she loves discussing them now on her app and in magazine interviews. Nonetheless, her fans loved the tweet and flooded her mentions with responses like “handling like a boss, Queen” and “lol i love u.”
The praise was not lost on Kylie. She’s capitalizing on her now-famous tweet with a T-shirt from her clothing line with Kendall. Dubbed the “Talk About Something New, I’m Bored” shirt, the muscle tee features a twisted racerback design and a lipstick print for that extra dose of shade.
