From bobs to top knots, all anyone could talk about on the 2015 AMAs red carpet was hair. Gigi Hadid nearly broke the Internet when she showed up with a short, choppy bob. Twitter erupted with questions: When did she cut her hair? Is this a response to her high-profile breakup? If she didn’t livestream the cut on Periscope, did it even happen? As it turns out, we had nothing to worry about. Gigi didn’t cut her hair after all.

Instead, the Victoria’s Secret model just wore a short half wig. Mind blown. According to Teen Vogue, her stylist Bryce Scarlett “used Gigi’s own face-framing shorter layers as a guide and then attached a half wig to the back of her head.” He blended the hair then made it look messy and effortless using Matrix Style Link Texture Builder. And that’s how the #JustOneNightBob was born.

Of course, half wigs are nothing new. They’re an easy way to try a different look, like a short haircut, without committing. Kudos to Gigi for experimenting with a new style, even if she sparked a Twitter meltdown in the process. We can all rest easy tonight knowing Gigi’s famous flowing locks are still intact.

Following the success of her new major role in Netflix series Jessica Jones, Australian self-professed feminist Rachael Taylor has opened up about the portrayal of women in media, explaining how they can, more often than not, come across as voiceless and surface-level. 

Reflecting on the promise made to her from the show’s writer, Melissa Rosenberg, that her character, Trish “Patsy” Walker, and Jessica Jones (played by Krysten Ritter) “would never be talking about shoes or a boyfriend”, Rachael told ELLE that “women are sick of this simplified version of friendship” where we seemingly always talk about boy drama and other #FirstWorldProblems.

“We are much more complex than just caring about men all the time,” the former-Grey’s Anatomy star (who is doctor Alex Karev’s love interest in Season 7 of the Shonda Rhimes series, mind you) told the fashion glossy. “And the implication is that we’re not interesting and complex and layered enough to sustain a narrative of our own.”  (more…)

WATCH: Woman Showcases Art Throughout the Ages with 11 Tattoos In 1 Week

We’ve recently seen plenty of videos documenting hair and makeup, men’s facial hair and women’s fashion trends over the decades, but the latest “100 years of Beauty” video really takes the cake, with one woman undertaking 11 tattoo sessions in just one week to showcase iconic artists over the last century.

After Ohio-based Casey Lubin responded to a “crazy” ad (her words), explaining that she thought “it was a really amazing opportunity”, she wound up with tattoos ranging from florals a la Charlie Wagner to Sailor Jerry’s owls and Don Ed Hardy’s mermaids all over her bod to tribute artists from decades gone by. You’ve got to hand it to her for enduring all 11 decent-sized tatts, because that’s a fair bit of time and a whole lot of pain.

“I think it’s great that we can use our body as a canvas and it’s really cool that you can make art a part of your body,” she said in the video. “If your body is your temple you should be able to decorate it the way that you want, right?” (more…)

H&M Is Opening a Third Sydney Store

Just when you thought H&M’s Australian invasion couldn’t spread any wider, in comes its eighth retail space in Australia and third in Sydney. Pretty crazy considering the Swedish retailer only arrived down under last year, right?

Anyway, the new H&M will be at Westfield Chatswood and is opening as soon as February 2016. More information will be on its way in the lead up to the new store’s opening, but, if the Pitt Street Mall and Macquarie Centre H&Ms are anything to go by, it’s going to be another enormous, multi-level venue with lines to get through the door, into the change rooms, to the tills, and out that door again.

But, hey, with collabs like H&M x Balmain, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Jourdan Dunn’s Busy Boho Cover for Vogue Japan Leaves Us Confused (Forum Buzz)

Following in the footsteps of Kendall Jenner, Natasha Poly and Natalia Vodianova, British beauty Jourdan Dunn graces the cover of Vogue Japan. To kickstart 2016, Jourdan makes her debut on the cover of the title’s January issue, but we’re far from impressed. The current face of H&M’s holiday campaign was photographed drenched in a Burberry dress teamed with a fringed suede coat (styled by Anna Dello Russo) by Giampaolo Sgura for the latest addition to Jourdan’s ever-growing portfolio. Jourdan’s suggested lack of modeling skills left a lot to be desired, though.

Make no mistake, our forum members went off on the cover. “Certainly forgettable. Jourdan’s got no common sense. How could she even don this redundant hand-on-the-hip starlet pose with such a busy coat like that? It ends up looking too cloaky. At least the makeup looks good,” shared Benn98.

“I find her [to be] a weak model, the styling, the pose and the text overload don’t help either. It’s a mess overall,” echoed KateTheGreatest. (more…)
