An ad which shows a woman with a glass of wine in front of her crotch while saying, “Australia basically jumps out of the glass, in fact, some say you can almost taste the bush” has been banned due to the way it “exploits” and “undermines” women. (more…)
After attacking Beyonce’s shoe maker, yelling at Kim Kardashian and slamming Stella McCartney, PETA is setting its sights on a new target: Oscar de la Renta. The organization claims a pair of ODLR shoes, currently for sale on Gilt, uses the skin of elephants. “By selling shoes made of elephant skin, both Gilt and Oscar de la Renta are complicit in the slaughter of these intelligent, social, and empathetic gentle giants,” a post on PETA’s website read. “It is guilt by association: Make sure that Gilt and Oscar de la Renta know it by sending a letter to the companies today!”
A representative from the fashion house immediately shut down the accusations, claiming the shoes were simply mislabeled: “This afternoon, PETA posted on its Web site a claim that Oscar de la Renta used elephant skin in our accessories products. In fact, this is not true, as Gilt Groupe has acknowledged that this resulted from them incorrectly labeling one of our products as being made from 100 percent elephant skin. They have acknowledged the mistake and have moved to correct it across their site. Unfortunately, many of their users have seen this and understandably are outraged, as are we. We do not and will never use elephant skin in any of our products.”
PETA now claims it will remove the damning post from its site. There’s no telling what the bad press may have cost the fashion house in terms of sales and reputation. At least women wearing Oscar de la Renta are no longer in danger of getting drenched in red paint.
Adele’s cat-eye look is iconic but she is just as stunning without it. She goes makeup-free on the cover of Rolling Stone this month, sporting damp hair and a terry cloth robe. The striking cover accompanies an intimate story, where she opens up about her relationship with partner Simon Konecki and their 3-year-old son Angelo whom she says bosses her around: “He’s the only person that tells me no. He completely rules me. He’s the boss of me, and it’s so funny for other people to watch, because I’m the boss of everything in my work life.” (more…)
There’s a unicorn, taco and middle finger emoji but still no representation for women with textured hair. Dove changes that once and for all with the first emojis with curly hair. The Dove Love Your Curls emojis, developed in partnership with Snaps marketing platform, include 27 curly hair designs with a wide range of skin tones and hair colors, plus seven animated GIFs. Clocking in at 131 emojis in total, Dove’s new emojis are part of the Love Your Curls campaign which includes an illustration book and a full product line. (more…)
Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members were left bored by the outcome. “They are already making a transition after the recent news. I don’t know if the choice of photographer is an indication of the future creative direction, but M&M for Dior is so weird. Even more so, with such a boring result,” discredited Lola701 straight away.
“Boring and lifeless. I’m so glad that Raf is out!,” hailed narcyza with forum member Nomar echoing, “Boring and safe.”
Everyone else, however, liked the stark shot. “Ow, Mert & Marcus do Dior? I’m on board,” shared an interested Street a Licious.
Mepps certainly was a fan of the image, defending, “What do people expect from an eyewear ad? An attractive person wearing a pair of shades is never gonna be that interesting. This ad is perfectly fine, for its purpose.”
“I’m just happy to see a model. Even though Vanessa doesn’t really excite me, great for her, I guess,” congratulated simon.
“I think it’s a gorgeous image. The colors really speak to me and Vanessa has great lips,” pointed out as equally as content anlabe32.
We know that Kylie is “over” her lip injections and her mother was adamantly against them but it still remains a mystery why she got them in the first place. The reality star opened up to Elle Canada about her procedure, saying, “It was always an insecurity of mine and I did it strictly for me.”
She also reveals why she was so tight-lipped about it (pun intended): “When I got my lips done, I literally told no one! I didn’t tell my best friend or even the guy I liked at the time. I really thought it was no one’s business. My mom was super-against it, but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it. After I did them, I thought it was so obvious that I didn’t have to say anything. I never denied it because I always told my publicist ‘no lip questions,’ so no one ever asked me. I never said I got them done, but I never denied it either. But people thought I was such a liar!”
