Vogue Paris is celebrating its 95th anniversary with a slew of supermodels and Kendall Jenner, but no celebratory fashion shoot would be complete without a little nudity. Cover stars Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss both take their clothes off in the issue, because there is no better way to celebrate a birthday than in one’s birthday suit.
We were all surprised when Kanye West announced at the VMAs that he was planning to run for president, but probably none so surprised as Kim Kardashian, who says she was caught off guard by her husband’s newfound political aspirations – and we would think she would have known about them before because hello, she’s married to the guy.
“That was news to me. It was not a discussion in our household,” she said on the Ellen show. Though she had no idea her husband was going to up and try to run for office, like a good wife she is backing his new goals. And why wouldn’t she? Becoming the FLOTUS would make Kim Kardashian even more famous than she already is, and we know the Kardashian-Jenner machine is a slave to any prospect of increased overexposure. (more…)
If you’re wanting to launch a localised edition of your magazine into Australia, glossy guru Damien Woolnough is perfect for the job.
After introducing ELLE to Australia alongside the fabulous Justin Cullen in 2013, Damien has now landed the editor-in-chief position for L’Officiel Australia, a French fashion and luxury magazine which launched down under with its January 2015 issue. He announced the news on Twitter this afternoon. (more…)
The 2015 Social Good Summit went down on Monday, September 28, at New York’s 92Y, and Charlize Theron totally looked the part with a balance of flowing femininity and structured sophistication.
The actress opted for Australian label Zimmermann’s midi dress in watercolour pastels, finished off with a contrasting black blazer. Normally we would feel like the black blazer was too harsh against the dreamy colours of the dress, but the matched Aquazzura strappy shoes gave it relevance in the outfit.
Plus, the addition of the structured jacket instantly made this summery dress event-appropriate, and has inspired us to carry around a blazer everywhere we go to give any look the workwear appeal it might need.
Bow down to your Lorde, because she has just highlighted a very important issue in her new music video “Magnets” with Disclosure.
The New Zealand-born songstress steps outside of her comfort zone for the clip, getting steamy as all hell with an already-taken man, Iddo Goldberg (who you might remember as BFF Ben from Secret Diary of a Call Girl), before setting him on fire in a pool of gasoline.
After watching the clip for the first time, questions were raised about why Lorde’s character felt the need to kill a man she was “getting along” with so well in the living room, the walk-in wardrobe and essentially any wall they could find to do the deed against.
But Lorde has made it very clear that this is not your typical mistress scenario, and that she’s actually playing a “hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends.”
one of my life goals has always been “to one day play a hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends”
According to the singer, the very crucial blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment of the entire video is a shot of the girlfriend’s black eye when she’s by the window, with Lorde asking us to “watch with that moment in mind.”
stepped outside myself and played an interesting character for the MAGNETS video! **the most important detail is the…
She explained on Facebook, “That’s the point the whole video hinges on / takes it from being ‘an affair narrative’ to being ‘shitty domestic abuser dude’s girlfriend hired miss ella the hit girl to ‘seduce’ him then take him the FUCK out’.[sic]”
Willow Smith is killing it. The 14-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada-Pinkett Smith has been making waves, landing a campaign with Marc Jacobs and the cover of i-D‘s Coming of Age issue. Now, the young Smith can call herself a bonafide model, now that she’s signed on with The Society Management, aka the same agency that reps Kendall Jenner.

This morning, The Society tweeted out that Smith is the newest addition to its roster, along with an image of one of the stunning i-D covers she just did. And Kendall isn’t the only big name Smith will share a face board with. The Society lists Andreja Pejic, Adriana Lima, Caroline Trentini and Liu Wen (to name a few) on its impressive women’s board.
Meanwhile, Smith is over here on Instagram taking pictures of her friend’s tattoo, as one does when they’re signed to a major modeling agency. You just keep being you Ms. Smith.
