This isn’t your average garage sale. You will not find weird old pictures of somebody’s family from the 60s or worn-in Tupperware from the early 90s. Also, it’s not taking place in an actual garage. Garage magazine is having an online auction with items curated from the homes of 13 key members of the creative set. Jeff Koons, James Franco, Richard Phillips, Miuccia Prada and several others have all donated their old (enviable) junk to the cause with proceeds benefiting CalArts and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Education.

And these artsy throwaways are anything but. Among the lots is a self-portrait of Absolutely Fabulous‘ Joanna Lumley as her character Patsy Stone, an embellished, fringed leather skirt from Miuccia Prada and a Prada shirt right off Carsten Höller’s back. 

You can bid on the items from January 25 to February 4 online at the dedicated eBay shop.

Lindsey Wixson’s Hair Completely Ruins Fendi’s Spring 2015 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Karl Lagerfeld often gets flack from our feisty forum members for his photographic abilities. But it’s not Lagerfeld who’s getting the blame for Fendi’s unattractive Spring 2015 advertising campaign. The kaiser tapped Lindsey Wixson as the solo star of the fashion spots, having previously fronted Chanel’s Spring 2014 campaign alongside Sasha Luss. This time around, the designer captured Lindsey inside a high-rise building full of natural light as she poses in Fendi’s latest wares. But it was the hair, styled by Sam McKnight, that’s bothering the majority of our forum members.

Ad Campaign Fendi Spring 2015 Lindsey Wixson


Naturally, our forum members weren’t afraid to let loose. “Makeup, hair, pose, location is all wrong. It has ruined an amazing collection. Let’s hope the other shots make up for it a bit,” ranted gossiping.  

“As much [as] I love Lindsey, this is really bad. The hair ruins everything,” thatsfierce added.

Forum member fiqary showed no enthusiasm toward the hair, either: “The hair is horrible. The hair alone makes everything look cheap and tacky.”

FelipeV even went so far as to say, “The hair makes her look like a 70s porn actress.” Ouch! 

“Okay I think I’ll say the same thing as everyone, this hairstyle is not cool, and it doesn’t suit her. Lindsey has very recognizable and striking features, and they are not well used here. Even the makeup is wrong. On the first picture I really like the colors, light blue, baby pink and white. But well that’s the only thing I like,” credited Emmanuelle.

TAG Heuer Taps Cara Delevingne for Latest Campaign

TAG Heuer is switching up its swag for this season’s campaign, tapping a professional model (as opposed to an athlete or celebrity) to star in its ads. The buzzy Cara Delevingne has been chosen as the watch brand’s new ambassador.

For the campaign, TAG Heuer went with photos of the model you may have already seen: The first is her at The Great Gatsby premiere during Cannes in 2013, the other is an image of Cara making one of her signature goofy faces, showing off the lion tattoo on her index finger, while urging the TAG Heuer customer #DontCrackUnderPressure. TAG Heuer is hoping Cara’s social media reach and popularity with the kids opens the brand up to a younger generation of shoppers. And it looks like the model is already hard at work promoting her new gig on Instagram.  (more…)

She loved gallivanting around in The Hills of LA and The City of New York, but it looks like Whitney Port could be relocating to Australia for good.

In an interview with OK! magazine, her fiancé, producer Tim Rosenman, revealed that the move down under is more than likely going to happen. “We’ll probably move to Australia,” he explained to OK! “Last time we left, we spoke about it because we loved it so much.”

It’s definitely a possibility. Whitney is signed to Aussie management team Chadwick models, she became engaged to Tim in Sydney, and because, well, who says no to Australia?

We’ll gladly make room for Whitney and Tim, and all their little Port-Rosenman offspring on our turf. Maybe a new MTV reality show could be on the cards. The Sand? The Outback? The Spit?! Doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?

To read the entire story, pick up OK! this week.

Olivier Rousteing Explains His Obsession with Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and her famous family members have monopolized quite a chunk of the fashion world in recent years, a fact that some folks aren’t particularly thrilled about. The reality star has appeared on the cover of Vogue‘s U.S. and now Australian publications, and will appear in a 30-plus page spread for LOVE magazine decked out in Prada. But Kim’s presence in the industry isn’t a bother to Olivier Rousteing, who cast her and husband Kanye West to front Balmain’s spring menswear campaign

At 28, Rousteing is noted for being extremely social media savvy, hip and current. And while some may poo-poo his relationship with Kim, the designer thinks she’s all that. “She is insanely beautiful, smart, confident, a business woman,” he told The Guardian, noting that the reality star is actually Balmain’s ideal customer. “I love also that she is not a typical American. She has Armenian origins, she is with Kanye, who is black, and she has a mixed-race daughter. For me, that is how modern couples are.”

So, there you have it: The allure of Kim Kardashian, according to one young Frenchman.
