If we look anything like 45-year-old Naomi Watts does at her age, we’ll be laughing. The Australian actress stepped out for the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival rocking two revealing outfits, including a cut-out jumpsuit and gown with a plunging neckline. And even with more of her skin on show than we’re used to, Naomi still managed to look her elegant self.
For the premiere of St. Vincent on September 5, Naomi combined class with sex appeal in this black Stella McCartney jumpsuit with side cut-out detailing and a plunging neckline. The blonde opted for metallic Rupert Sanderson heels and a matching Lee Savage box clutch, and looked a million bucks with the help of Bulgari jewels. She kept the look fresh with a coiffed ponytail and pink-hued lips. (more…)
The Gary Pepper blog has won the award for Best Photography at the Bloglovin 2014 Awards in New York City tonight, beating blogs Shine By Three, Kayture, Fashion Toast and Sea of Shoes. Other Aussie blog hopefuls, like Tuula Vintage, Oracle Fox and The Chronicles of Her haven’t been as lucky as Nicole Warne, missing out on the top prize of their category.
We’re not surprised that Nicole’s blog took out the Best Photography prize. If you’ve taken one look at her Instagram or blog, which are often filled with dreamy overseas landscapes, you’ll understand why too. She’s also got a photographer boyfriend, Luke Shadbolt, on her team, helping create all the highly acclaimed photographic magic.
“Thank you for acknowledging Luke Shadbolt and Carin Olsson‘s talents, they make work an absolute dream and I wouldn’t trust anyone else to help convey the Gary Pepper perspective,” Nicole wrote to her blog after nominations were announced. “It just encourages us to keep going and we can’t wait to create and share even more with you all, for you all.” (more…)

Megan Fox is in Australia promoting her new film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with Sydney’s premiere taking place at the Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park last night. The actress looked completely smokin’, as always, in an orange-and-white colourblock bodycon, with side cut-outs revealing one of her many tattoos.
The bright piece popped against the green carpet, which Megan teamed with matching white two-strap heels. She kept accessories to a minimum with gold and diamond bracelets. A long, middle-parted side plait and bronzed makeup was the perfect choice for Megan, highlighting her distinctive cheekbones and always smouldering stare. (more…)

Legendary supermodel Amber Valletta was on top of the world in the 90s. By the turn of the millennium, Vogue magazine (on which she appeared 16 times) called her a “Modern Muse,” an appropriate term for the woman who posed for Chanel, Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani, Versace and countless other major houses. But while Amber was jet-setting around the world, twirling on runways and shooting campaigns, the model struggled with a substance abuse problem that almost consumed her entirely.
“I hit my bottom — when I was 25…and I remember it very well,” she told CBS News’ Lee Woodruff in an interview that aired this morning. “I think when you come to a point and you look in the mirror, and you can’t say anything nice to yourself — that’s a real problem.” Amber was discovered at 16 years old, and by the time she was 18, she was partying with the best of them in Europe. According to the model, addiction runs in her family and she unfortunately succumbed to nature.
“The first time I tried cocaine…I was in it — first time. And the last time I used I had — let me just put it this way. I hadn’t slept in a while, and I ended up going to St. Vincent’s alone and walking home alone after they released me the next day. And that is not a good feeling.” (more…)

While the rest of the world waits patiently for Target‘s collaboration with Altuzarra to drop, the fashion set got a head start on the shopping last night during an event to celebrate the collaboration. Target’s parties for its designer collaborations always draw a crowd, and last night proved to be no exception. The venue was packed.
Guests stood almost shoulder-to-shoulder wielding champagne glasses as they tried to navigate the space, which was a veritable hall of mirrors. Interspersed throughout the venue were small, mirrored salons, which featured mannequins dressed in pieces from the line. Above, a cascade of blue and yellow Christmas lights twinkled, likely to mimic the feeling of being in some sort of enchanted space. I can’t lie — the setup was dizzying to say the least. And the rhythmic pumping of the bass in the background music didn’t help — it just made the mirrors quiver, and made me wonder if I’d already had too much to drink after a single glass of wine. The place was so crowded, you couldn’t even find celebrity guests Naomie Harris, Keri Russell and Naomi Watts in the mass of people.
