Abbey Lee Kershaw’s Russh Magazine Cover: Smoking, Mermaids and Being an “Emotional Nut Job”

Everyone’s favourite grungy model Abbey Lee Kershaw is Russh magazine’s cover girl for February/March 2015, sharing her new-found love for acting, an almost-predictable obsession with anything and everything to do with mermaids, what her family thinks of her and more. If you’ve ever listened to anything Miss Abbey Lee has to say, you’ll know she’s never short of entertaining.

In her interview with the glossy, the 27-year-old, who rose to modelling fame as the fresh-faced winner of Girlfriend‘s Covergirl model search in 2004, revealed that her family think of her as “an emotional nut job” and that her home is not where her heart is, but rather where she unpacks her suitcase.

Since she added “actress” to her resume, Abbey Lee keeps herself busy as the modelling industry’s newest slashie. Taking the job ever-so-seriously since she landed a role in Mad Max: Fury Road, set for release this year, she reveals to Russh that her favourite thing about acting is that “reality means shit”, and, like other newbies in the biz, dreams of working with some big names during her career.  (more…)

Iggy Azalea Takes a Royal Approach on the Grammys Red Carpet

Iggy Azalea might want us to bow down, if her get-up for the 2015 Grammys in LA tonight (ET) is anything to go by. The Australian rapstress has taken a queenly approach to her red carpet attire, dressed in a royal-blue gown complete with a crown made of braids from her own hair.

She’s sexed up the fancy look in her own way, opting for an Armani Privé floor-length dress with cut-out detailing around her shoulders and bust. The plunging neckline and sheer panel around her ankles also help, as does the figure-hugging silhouette which shows off her famous curves.

The hair, although creative, is debatable. It almost looks as if she has none, but chopped-off Rapunzel’s braid, twirled it a ring, and propped it onto her head. Thankfully her makeup was so fresh, so clean, meaning her stunning facial features were able to shine.

Sia & 12-Year-Old Maddie Ziegler Boss It Up on the 2015 Grammys Red Carpet

Oh, Sia. We definitely expected some kind of shield over the Australian musician’s face for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in LA tonight (ET), but her choice of cover-up took the usual Sia peculiarity to a whole new level.

The “Chandelier” singer rocked up to the red carpet with her mini-me Maddie Ziegler in matching white-blonde oversized wigs, complete with bangs long enough to hide Sia’s eyes and nose. We’re glad she looked to the 12-year-old as a plus-one, because we don’t think “Elastic Heart” star Shia LaBeouf would’ve ever lived this one down.

Other than the excessive hair, the girls actually looked quite sharp in their similar monochromatic suits, showing off their matching hand tatts (or texta scribbles, in Maddie’s case), flawless makeup and snazzy footwear. Sia’s pretty proud of her efforts, tweeting, “Bossing it up on the red carpet with my sister in arms @maddieziegler,” alongside a shot of her and her sidekick at the event.

POP Magazine Gives Gemma Ward Her Best Comeback Cover Yet (Forum Buzz)

Maybe not quite the spectacular comeback we had in mind once we witnessed the Aussie stunner strut her stuff down Prada’s Spring 2015 catwalk in Milan, but Gemma Ward makes a surprising appearance fronting the new issue of POP magazine. This isn’t the first major cover since Gemma’s comeback, she also fronted the December 2014 issue of her native Vogue Australia. This time around we see the current face of Prada in a different light, photographed by Harley Weir for the Spring/Summer 2015 issue.

POP Magazine Spring 2015 Gemma Ward


This will no doubt generate a lot of forum buzz since it’s everyone’s favorite model on the cover. “Wow, I sometimes forget this mag still exists, but I might check this out. I’m always here for Gemma in Prada. The cover is surely eye-catching, but it’s a bit creepy (which works, I guess),” commented mistress_f the moment it surfaced.

“Gemma + Harley Weir? Hell yes!” Marc10 raved, setting the tone of comments to come.

Forum member Razzer was clearly motivated and simply declared, “Oh my. I’m sold!”

“This is the first image of Gemma that I’ve liked, since the comeback started,” agreed tigerrouge.

“Marvelous, love the cover. Yes Gemma yes!” TeeVanity enthused.

“Love it! Now this is how you do a comeback magazine cover,” declared khyrk.

“YES! An incredible image of Gemma! Looking every inch the blue chip editorial queen. I will be purchasing this issue. LOVE magazine should take note on how to do any eye-catching cover without the shock value of using a reality TV star,” added zoom, getting his digs in.

Here’s to hoping there’s more to be seen of Gemma once the issue becomes available. Take a peek inside the thread here

New Petition Calls for Magazines to Cut Down on the Use of Photoshop

Photoshop has become a regular feature in most of the images we see in the media. It’s at a point where if you don’t use Photoshop for a spread, campaign or any other mass produced image, it becomes news. Missing limbs, poreless skin and suspiciously trim features are a regular occurrence, but RAW Beauty Talks is trying to change all that.

RAW is an organization striving to bring a little more reality to our media beauty standards and help women embrace their unique, natural beauty. Its mission is to promote “transparency in media” when it comes to the images we see of women in our magazines, on our televisions and in advertising.

RAW has launched a petition calling for magazines like VogueELLE, Cosmopolitan and Glamour to reduce the amount of post-production Photoshop tweaking used on images. The petition cites statistics illustrating the negative effect these images have on young girls and women and also proposes a social media strategy to put pressure on magazines to curb the use of Photoshop. “We want to see cover girls and editorial in your magazines that don’t alter the already perfect bodies of the women you feature and don’t erase their fine lines or the unique attributes that make them truly beautiful,” the petition reads. “Remove a pimple or that crazy stray hair if you must, but other than that let their natural beauty shine!”

So far, over 1,700 people have signed to show their support for RAW’s initiative. It is certainly a noble cause — we can only hope the industry sits up and listens.
