As Victoria Beckham‘s fashion career continues to strengthen, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to imagine that she was ever a Spice Girl with a penchant for WAG-style dressing. Yesterday added another milestone in her career as she officially launched her label at Barneys New York. The launch was marked with a private in-store shopping event held by Victoria herself, alongside her own little style icon in the making, daughter Harper.
The ever-immaculate Victoria celebrated the first part of the evening in one of her new season back cut-out shift dresses in red. It’s currently only available to buy in white and you can snap it up for £1395 at Net-a-Porter. Courtesy of her young daughter Harper, her main accessory of choice appeared to be a bright My Little Pony toy.
The most stylish part was yet to come, however, as Victoria switched to another one of her designs at an A-list dinner at Freds at Barneys New York. Her guests included friends Eva Longoria, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose Byrne, all of whom wore different Victoria Beckham pieces, with Eva opting for one of her plunge-neck numbers. (more…)
Anyone with eyes can see that Olivier Rousteing is a handsome guy. And it’s probably part of the reason why the 29-year-old designer is so popular on Instagram. And thanks to that nude Têtu magazine cover he posed for, the world is free to see even more of Rousteing’s gorgeous bod beyond the shirtless selfies he posts from time to time (yeah, we’re looking).
And we’re not alone. According to Rousteing, Têtu made him even more popular on social media. “After the cover came out, I received so many sexual propositions on Facebook,” the designer told Document Journal. We can only imagine how many people were trying to slide into Rousteing’s DM’s.
Still, we’re guessing the guy is pretty used to people trying to get at him. As he reveals in the interview, one of his past jobs was as a go-go dancer in Florence. “I got paid 200 euros a night—It was a dressed gig,” he said. “There I actually had a roommate who would bring home a new lover every night. I must have done a world tour in three months.”
OK, at this point we’re pretty sure that Olivier Rousteing is and has been leading the best life ever. Carry on, oh soldier of fabulosity.

Harper’s Bazaar Australia has rapidly established itself as the most consistent edition of the Hearst-owned title. After the magazine made Shanina Shaik cradle a cute koala on its April cover, Aussie Bazaar once again successfully manage to impress our forum members. Cate Blanchett stars on the magazine’s annual beauty issue, making perfect sense considering the actress’ connection with Giorgio Armani cosmetics. It should also come as no surprise that Cate dons an Armani creation on the cover, lensed by Tom Munro.
Per usual, our forum members were eager to see what Bazaar had created this time around. “Nice to see Cate, she looks stunning as usual. I’m surprised she hasn’t gotten any UK or US covers for Cinderella,” shared Benn98.
“Gorgeous, but wow she was just on Vogue!” added Miss Dalloway.
Forum member gossiping was certainly in the mood for some Cate. “WOW this is really amazing, I love it!” she exclaimed.
In firm agreement was Nymphaea: “Totally vamp, looking gorgeous as usual. Love the blond hair with the black outfit.”
Tigerrogue shared the same positive attitude and was quick to appreciate, “Such a simple cover, but it works so well.”
“The colors work so well here!” Oxymore echoed.

Is there anything you can buy these days for a penny? Probably not much, but for a few Lucky Brand shoppers, a penny could get them a brand new pair of jeans – or at least they thought it could. Thanks to a leaked discount code, Lucky Brand customers found that their jeans, which would usually set them back between $100 and $130 dollars, would cost them a mere penny. Too bad it doesn’t seem as if Lucky Brand is going to honor any of those purchases. According to Bloomberg, it has already canceled some orders.
Lucky tweeted about the big mix-up, saying that the discount code was meant for employees and was “not advertised by us anywhere.” Many people who missed out on the deals complained that Lucky Brand’s policies state that all sales are final. Of course, Lucky had a loophole for that argument. “‘Final Sale’ only applies to clearance items ending in $0.97,” they explained in a tweet.
Tricky, tricky! So, if you got psyched about copping two pairs of fancy jeans at a fraction of the cost, you can probably expect an email from Lucky in your inbox – and a coupon to use on future purchases to make up for the mistake. Though we’re pretty sure your next Lucky Brand purchase won’t be as inexpensive.
Like it or not, the fashion industry continues to support Kendall Jenner‘s blossoming modeling career. In addition to this month’s subscriber cover of Harper’s Bazaar, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, the 19-year-old reality TV star-turned-fashion model now appears on the cover of GQ‘s May issue. GQ enlisted Steven Klein to capture Kendall wearing a skimpy white bikini from Adriana Degreas and a denim jacket from Calvin Klein Jeans — a brand she currently represents.
Opinions in our forums are mixed. “That is a beautiful cover! The best I’ve seen of Ms. Jenner,” praised MON within moments of the cover surfacing.
“Totally agree. She is almost a stunner here,” replied niknak, offering almost a compliment.
“Nice cover. She actually fits that kind of photography. She would be a good FHM model with her girl next door face,” commented DutchHomme, throwing a tad bit of shade.
Fluxx seemed pleasantly surprised also. “Finally a good work from KenDULL Jenner. I’d buy this issue. Anyway from the thumbnail I thought it was Emily Ratajkowski.”
Forum member burbuja8910 failed to show support and described it as a “tacky cover” inside the thread.
