Pantone’s Top Colors for Spring 2016 Will Put You in a Chill Mood

We’re only just starting to get into fall but the fashion world is already looking forward to spring. If you’re the type that likes to stay ahead of trends and are already looking forward to melting snow, cherry blossoms and allergies, don’t worry your pretty little head too much because Pantone is here to help jumpstart your springtime mood boards with the top 10 color trends for Spring 2016.

According to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman, the hues for spring are to keep us all a little more relaxed in the face of our busy, modern chaotic lifestyle. “The fact that technology has gotten so overwhelming and so 24/7 has really created a great part of the need for these comforting, softer colors. Technology plays a huge part in people feeling like they want to stop the world and get off,” she tells WWD. On tap, there is Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, Fiesta, Iced Coffee and Green Flash.

Rose Quartz was the color most used by designers, a soft baby pink that gives us chiller vibes just looking at it.

Sam finally gets to meet the parents, and we get to watch him squirm as the parents and siblings grill him with questions. Last night I went to town on the fashion, but tonight let’s focus on the families and see who has made the biggest impression on Sam.

First up is Heather, who is from Queensland. Right from the beginning Heather has stuck by her word in wanting to build a friendship before moving forward and we have all questioned whether or not that has steered Sam in the wrong direction. I guess she has gotten this far, so she must be doing something right.

Although Heather has been honest and upfront, she still sometimes comes across a little bit of a closed book, so introducing Sam to the people closest to her will really help him figure Heather out that little bit more. As Heather talks about her background and her father, I realise she really is such a strong confident woman. (more…)

WATCH: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Dancing to ‘Single Ladies’ Is the Greatest Thing You’ll See Today

The US Open just delivered more than a killer forehand, and we have Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Beyoncé to thank for that.

The pair were spotted in the stands during the Men’s Singles Quarterfinals match between Richard Gasquet of France and Roger Federer on September 9 when they started getting down, or up, rather, to Queen Bey’s “Single Ladies”.

Wuh-uh-oh, we don’t know if you’ll see anything more brilliant than these two repping the ring-flashing Bey wave and alternating downward fist pumps today.

If you like it, then, well, you’re welcome.

The Actress from Controversial Pad Commercial Sets the Record Straight on Fat-Shaming Accusations

If you live in Australia and happen to watch TV, chances are you’ve seen the new SOFY® BeFresh™ pad commercial (above) where a woman goes all hermit crab on her life because she feels like “she sat on a jam doughnut”.

Translation: a girl gets her period and all of a sudden becomes a larger body size, emotional, hungry, and, well, just generally unstable. Plenty of viewers don’t love the association of being bigger with an undesirable life where you cry in the shower and scream obscenities at the pizza man, taking to social media, of course, to express their outrage.

Australia’s Next Top Model winner Brittany Beattie might be all the rage in the fashion industry right now, but the 21-year-old has decided to keep up life as a tradie to stay grounded. 

When we spoke with Brittany earlier this year she told us she’d given up bobcat driving, the job she had before entering the modelling competition, “because it sort of wrecks your body, your hands and stuff, and, yeah, not very good for being a model”, but now she’s revealed that she’s taken it back up.

“I still do bobcat work because it brings me down to Earth,” she told Sydney Confidential. “When I’m on the catwalk it feels like I’m in the air, and in la-la- land. But when I’m back in the bobcat it brings me back to normality.” (more…)
