Who doesn’t like to ogle women lying in bed posing suggestively? Inside its Fall Issue, V magazine is delivering just that, tapping models Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Amber Valletta to pose for Sebastian Faena’s lens. The editorial, titled Simply the Best, plays on Linda Evangelista’s famous quote about not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.
The models are photographed in what V describes as their “natural states,” which in this case means in fishnet bodysuits and lacy lingerie.
V Issue 97 hits newsstands September 10, but in the meantime, enjoy a preview in the slideshow below. (more…)
Fashion is all about doing you, but sometimes retailers won’t let you be great. Agender fashion is trending now, but there are those for which unisex fashion is more than just a trend, it’s a lifestyle. It’s why 37-year-old Christina Wilson created You Do You, an online destination about agender fashion, lifestyle and beauty. “We should all feel free to explore fashion and beauty and find what works for us, no matter how we identify,” Wilson told Mashable. “We just want to get rid of the gender binary system that is so prevalent in fashion, and in life; it seems outdated and silly at this point.”
The site has fashion and beauty editorials catering to men and women at the same time. Fellas or ladies looking to enhance their natural looks can refer to a beauty editorial in which a model is made up in demure, tasteful makeup – a pale yellow gold lid, glowing skin and a sheer coral pout. In a fashion editorial, a pigtailed guy dons a skirt and is pictured squinting into space while holding a cordless phone to his ear. In another, a male and female model are outfitted in almost identical looks.
Wilson’s cohorts, creative director Logan Jackson and managing editor Casey Green, help bring her vision to life, creating a space where fans of unisex clothing and those who don’t necessarily wish to identify with one gender or another can have a place where their preference is treated as the norm. Of course, You Do You is hoping to expand in the future with more editorials and tips on how to approach unisex dressing.
“I think YDY is a good thing — not because I or Kristiina or Casey have the final say on anything in these industries, but because we wanted to invite people to this space so that they could illustrate something new and important,” Jackon said. “And maybe that will create a change.”
Since former Marc by Marc Jacobs creative directors Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley announced they would be launching a collection of their own, we’ve been patiently waiting to see what the duo would come up with. Now, the fruits of their labor are finally here – Matches Fashion has some of the collection in stock on its site. The range has a few of the playful touches you might expect from Hillier and Bartley, but this offering is far more grown-up.
“This is an intimate, quiet sort of label,” Hillier told Vogue. “Calm and modest—no excess and no fuss.” You’ll find plenty of high necks, bell sleeves and satiny, silky finishes. There is fringe galore and enough pussy bows to please those fans of primness. The outerwear is sensible, sometimes with a twist – we were particularly fond of the belted and tassel-tie coats, a leather bomber jacket and a classic, long button up wool coat. Of course, the collection isn’t without a bit of whimsy, found in adorable bunny-shaped clutches with hefty price points, ranging from $705 to $847.
The collection certainly does not disappoint and is an appealing effort from the pair who so expertly created clothes for a decidedly younger set during their tenure at Marc by Marc Jacobs. Check out a few of our favorite pieces from the range in the gallery below and head over to Matches to shop the collection. (more…)

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you may want to check out my groundbreaking recap on Episode 7 where I may have done a Nina and spilt the beans. Seriously, this is where all the celebrities get their The Bachelor goss, including psychic Harry T.
Let’s get on with it. Osher gives the girls news that Sam really wants to spend more quality time with, ahem, Snezana. Sorry, I mean with the ladies, and there is no better way than to put the most competitive ladies together on a group date and take them go-karting.
Before the race even starts, Nina and Emily’s claws are out and this means war. Do they even know what the prize is? Who cares. This is going to be hilarious. (more…)
They might not always make as much money as their male counterparts, but these actresses are doing a lot better than many of their thespian sistren according to Forbes, which just released its list of the highest-paid actresses.
Jennifer Lawrence tops the list, having raked in $52 million in the past year, an impressive sum considering she made less than her male costars in American Hustle. Scarlett Johansson came in second at $35.5 million while Melissa McCarthy rounded out the top three with her $23 million dollar takeaway.
Fan Bingbing was the only non-American to make the list amassing $21 million. Bingbing is also the only nonwhite woman on the list. Amanda Seyfried is a newcomer with her $8 million fortune and Sandra Bullock finds herself on the tail end of the list after topping it last year, going from $51 million to $8 million – which is still significantly better than our $0 million.
Browse through the full list over at Forbes to see who else made the cut.
