Summer and holidays tend to go hand-in-hand, so it’s perfect that We Are Kindred‘s new Summer 2014 collection, dubbed Dreaming of Amalfi, embodies travel and adventure with its dreamy prints and flowing pieces. Think florals, lightweight fabrics and crochet detailing in a feminine colourway of crisp whites, soft pinks, blues and lilacs.

With the cute crops, wrap playsuits, simple camis, sweet midi skirts and elegant maxi dresses, the range definitely lends itself to the more girlie type. But with the inspiration of romance and long summer days, the pieces are perfect for the free-spirited soul who doesn’t mind a bit of stylish relaxation.

But even if you’re not planning a trip to Italy anytime soon, you can play pretend with the collection dropping in-store this September.

Even though Renee Bargh has been living it up in Los Angeles as Extra‘s co-host for quite some time now, the Queensland-born TV personality must still have a soft spot for her home country and its talented designers.

She did us proud on the Creative Arts Emmy Awards’ red carpet, stepping out in an elegant black gown by Melbourne-based designer Bariano. Renee styled the strapless piece perfectly with a gold diamond-encrusted choker fit for a Greek goddess, plus simple black heels exposed by the the front thigh split of the piece.

Perhaps the most breathtaking of the getup was the braided updo by hair stylist Erin McKay, which Renee continued to rock at the Malibu Beach House the following day. “Sunday at the Bu. Yesterday’s hair don’t care. #myhappyplace #beachbun,” Renee wrote to her Instagram, with a photo of her lounging in a bikini.

Abbey Lee Kershaw Steps Out of Hiding for the Melbourne International Film Festival

For a while there, we kind of thought Abbey Lee Kershaw had fallen off the face of the earth. We weren’t hearing about the doe-eyed model and she wasn’t gracing glossy magazine spreads. Then she popped up on our screens for the Max Max: Fury Road trailer alongside fellow models Megan Gale and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, making us think a fledged acting career could be on the cards.

Now the blond babe has been spotted at the closing night of the Melbourne International Film Festival, strutting her always-grungy look on the red carpet for the Australian premiere of Felony. The 2004 Girlfriend Model Search winner showed off her belly button ring in a high-waisted pant and crop combo teamed with a black biker jacket and shiny leather boots.

Add to the outfit a cross necklace, beaded bag, messy hair and edgy makeup, and it’s apparent our girl is back in full swing. It might be to cement her acting career, but we’re not complaining. It’s good to have you back, Abbey Lee, no matter the reason.
