Online Retailer Shoes of Prey to Open Brick-and-Mortar Store

Shoes of Prey is taking the plunge into the brick-and-mortar arena. After five very successful years of women flocking to its site to design their very own personalised footwear, the online retailer is setting up shop at Westfield Bondi Junction in Sydney.

It will be the company’s first-ever, stand-alone store, although Shoes of Prey has given the concrete thing a go already. The custom-made shoe retailer signed a concession with David Jones in 2013, and if opening up a second physical space in Bondi is anything to go by, the department store space must be pretty successful.

Shoes of Prey is currently hiring for its existing David Jones CBD store as well as its upcoming Bondi Junction store. If you’re a budding shoe designer, this could be your big chance. You’re welcome.

31 Bits Taps Aussie Model Vanessa Milde for Fall 2014

California-based jewellery company 31 Bits has tapped Aussie model Vanessa Milde for its latest shoot, with the brunette beauty looking every bit the boho babe for the brand’s Fall 2014 campaign. 31 Bits’ handmade, tribal-infused designs are perfect for the girl who’s wild at heart, with beads made from recycled paper and calm yet striking colourways.

Vanessa was born in Adelaide, but she’s been living it up in Los Angeles for quite some time now. And while we recognise her face from walking runways for Toni Maticevski, Sass & Bide and David Jones, Vanessa has been modelling around the globe for big-name brands ever since she entered the modelling world at 15. Although her latest gig might not have high-fashion prestige, the brand’s mission is a feel-good one Vanessa can be proud to represent. (more…)

Kyly Clarke Looks Pastel-Perfect in By Johnny

Kyly Clarke looked pastel-perfect when stepping out for Estée Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Dual Infusion Launch on Tuesday night. The wife to cricketer Michael Clarke opted for a colourblocked By Johnny dress, teamed with nude pointed-toe pumps, Cerrone jewels and a coiffed, swept-back do. 

The slim-fitting dress in By Johnny’s exclusive sorbet print looked stunning against Kyly’s bronzed (and incredibly toned) skin. The off-centred point of the strapless piece gave Kyly a little bit of fashionable edge, while the below-the-knee length added just the right amount of sophistication for the private dinner event. The black waistband also played its part, breaking up the super-soft colour palette effectively. (more…)

That’s Audrey Hepburn’s Granddaughter on Harper’s Bazaar

Emma Ferrer for Harper's Bazaar September 2014 cover

It seems that nepotism is making a huge comeback in fashion these days. A slew of celebrity and model siblings and offspring are capitalizing on the opportunities that come with having famous kin, and they’re really gaining some serious traction. Just ask Ireland Baldwin, Gigi Hadid or Michael Avedon, grandson of legendary photographer Richard Avedon, who lensed the campaign for Calvin Klein‘s reissue collection — shooting Lottie Moss, younger half-sister of supermodel Kate Moss

Michael has been tapped once again to shoot the famous relative of a fashion icon. Covering this month’s Harper’s Bazaar is Emma Ferrer, aka the granddaughter of Audrey Hepburn. And if you can’t see the resemblance, a quick look at her unfairly thick and impeccably-shaped eyebrows might give you a clue. Of course, Emma is dressed in pieces that scream quintessential Audrey, including a head-to-toe black ensemble made up of trousers and a turtleneck along with a colorblock black and ivory Lanvin gown, punctuated by a red rose just below the bust. Emma also poses in a black and white sculptural, checkered hat, a nod to her grandmother’s famous April 1956 cover. The 20-year-old is heralded as the magazine’s “New Funny Face,” although you’ll quickly see that there’s nothing funny about Miss Emma’s beautiful countenance. Those brows alone are no laughing matter.

Emma was born a year after Audrey died, but she still has trophies from her stylish grandmother, namely a few cashmere turtlenecks, which she adores and wears “all throughout the winter.” I can think of a million girls who would kill to have those in their closet.

Audrey was Richard Avedon’s muse, so it makes perfect sense that Bazaar chose both of their descendants to recreate some of the magic Audrey and the elder photographer had all those decades ago.

Head to Harper’s Bazaar to see more of the shoot and read Emma’s musings about her grandmother.

Lindsey Wixson’s Vogue Russia Cover Gets Compared to Harry Styles (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Russia tapped Lindsey Wixson to front its big September issue. She was photographed sporting a short, cropped, dark wig (which doesn’t do her any favors) by Alexi Lubomirski. Of course, Lindsey wears an outfit from Louis Vuitton‘s fall collection, which Vogues worldwide have taken a shine to. The cover marks the American beauty’s sixth for the Condé Nast title. Lindsey previously appeared on the cover of Vogue Japan’s August 2014 issue.

It seems as though the September covers are not satisfying our forum members and Vogue Russia is no exception. “Oh stop!!!! This is getting hilarious! Where have all the Great Sept covers gone?!!?!???!!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway.

“Is this Harry Styles from One Direction? I think the title of this thread is very wrong…” commented miguelalmeida.

Another member not feeling the wig on Lindsey was gazebo, who posted, “People, bad hair is obviously IN VOGUE. Get used to it for at least a couple of months.”

“This is awful. I like the color palette, and I’m a fan of Lindsey, but this is pitiful. The hair and the styling are atrocious. Yikes,” wrote an unhappy MyNameIs.

Russian Vogue‘s take is the weakest cover of the lot, according to justaguy: “Oh man, another really bad Vogue September cover!! I think this is the worst.”

Lindsey also graces a 15-page fashion story inside the issue, which our forum members actually admire. “The edit is amazing though! The concept’s been done to death by US Vogue, but seems fresh with Lindsey & VR,” approved Benn98.

“Beautiful edit, I almost forget the wig. Good use of the settings. The photo with the men in uniforms is great, well done,” enthused Tony Fersen.

See inside the thread for the cover story as well as a preview of the issue. Don’t forget to post your own comment, too.
