You’ve all seen Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, right? The one where Tad (Josh Duhamel) falls in love with small-town girl Rosalee Futch (Kate Bosworth) after she wins an online competition to go out with him? Well, that could be your reality, just replace Fergie’s hubby for Chris Hemsworth and forget the love part.

You and a friend could win a lavish night with the Thor actor, where you’ll be taken to his hotel, personally escorted by him to the premiere of his new film In the Heart of the Sea via limo, walk the red carpet together and then join the cast and crew to the exclusive invite-only after-party. Shake-a-doo!

Entries for this competition start at just $5, with funds raised benefiting the Australian Childhood Foundation, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping children recover from abuse. The premiere takes place on December 7, 2015, in New York (flight vouchers up to $500 will be covered and you’ll receive one-night accommodation for free).

If you weren’t already jumping at the thought of it, let Chris’ rugged Aussie accent do the trick in his enticing video above. Enter here!

As the globe took to social media to band together and show their support of the major city with #PrayForParis, others fell short of their fans’ expectations with either tone-deaf or easily misinterpreted posts. 

In the wake of the news, The Bachelor Season 1 winner Anna Heinrich posted an image with from a French-themed engagement and farewell party the night before, wearing berets and holding baguettes. Commenters urged for the reality TV star to “take this down”, expressing that it was “poor taste” and “poor timing”. Anna quickly deleted the post and has not mentioned it since. (more…)

We’ve Seen This Alexa Chung ELLE UK Cover a Thousand Times Before (Forum Buzz)

According to our forums, the British edition of ELLE seems unwilling to deliver groundbreaking material and we’re becoming increasingly frustrated with the magazine. Half expecting a festive cover for December, ELLE instead insisted on gifting us a rather cold and lifeless shot of Alexa Chung. Photographed by Matt Irwin, the style icon turned digital mogul gives us 60s/Twiggy vibes, nonchalantly posing on the studio floor wearing a spring-feeling Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Members of our forums weren’t in the mood. “I’m not one of those ELLE U.K. haters (there have been some nice covers lately and I like their graphic layout), but it feels like we’ve seen this cover one thousand times! White background, Alexa in florals…So bland and seen,” Srdjan ranted immediately.

“Agreed, they haven’t had a really striking cover in a while even though their cover subjects might be interesting. Something festive or with a little fantasy wouldn’t hurt,” replied Benn98.

“Looks more like a January issue than a December one,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

We never tire of seeing Naomi Campbell strike a pose in lingerie, whether it’s for a magazine cover or on the runway.

Dubbed #IAmNaomiCampbell (perhaps a nod to her Instagram handle), the line includes seven collections of bras, panties, bodysuits and robes, ranging in price from $32-$65. The lingerie sets boast names like Iconic, Endearing and Magnificent, and she’s obviously all of the above. (more…)

We all know the phrase, “I wish I could wear [insert crop top, jumpsuit, miniskirt here].” Amazon Fashion Europe has the best response: just wear it! Its new campaign taps London Tall Girl blogger Marsha Campbell, plus-size activist Ana Pizarro and albino model Ingrid Behague Sockeel to wear the very garments other say they can’t. The result is simply brilliant.

Lensed by Rankin, the campaign disrupts old fashion myths while empowering women to wear whatever they choose. It’s inspiring to see Campbell strut in high heels or Pizarro flaunt her curves in a fitted dress. Sockeel is stunning in a bright red dress. Not only do they look phenomenal, they own their looks with confidence. (more…)

She found it a little tricky to do with her lengthy nails getting in the way, but you can get the gist of it with her simple rules in the video below.
