Gigi Hadid Does ‘Next Top Model’ on Numéro’s Holiday Cover (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that Numéro has been seriously lacking in the relevance department lately, failing to bring us compelling covers on a consistent basis. But with the French title’s double holiday issue that closes out 2015, Numéro secured one of fashion’s most in-demand (whether you like it or not) faces. Gigi Hadid makes her debut on the front cover, posing before the lens of photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino clad in a design from Balmain as she playfully tugs on her slicked-back ponytail, looking like, well, an amateur contestant on America’s Next Top Model.

After over a decade slaying the Australian and international swimwear category, JETS Swimwear founder Jessika Allen and her husband, Adrian Allen, have sold their label to The PAS Group for an undisclosed sum.

Having owned the swimwear brand since 2001 with a recent expansion into the activewear market, Jessika will remain as design director for at least 18 months before moving into a consulting role. General manager Rob Schonberger will keep his position.

JETS is expected to contribute to PAS’ earnings straight away, adding to other brands within the group including Review, Marco Polo and Black Pepper. “In Australia, there are opportunities to increase its retail footprint and expand its online presence,” PAS chief executive Eric Morris said in a news release.

“We will also look to broaden its international distribution,” he continued, noting that the brand will provide a platform for growth in the ever-expanding activewear market.

Jessika said, “We are very proud of the business and brand we have built over the years and extremely grateful to the JETS team for their effort and support. Having considered many potential options, we felt PAS was best suited to take the business to the next phase, and we are delighted to be working with Eric and his team to further the growth of the brand.”

Opening up for Marie Claire‘s January 2016 issue, the body diversity advocate explained that she experienced “non-stop” pain after giving birth in February. “I had vision loss, ocular spots, difficulty operating my hands. I felt terrible and I thought I had cancer or MS,” she explained. “Everything hurt. It hurt to move. It hurt to walk. I’d rather go through childbirth 10 times over than the pain I was experiencing. It was non-stop.” (more…)

If you don’t want a lot for Christmas but there is just one thing you need, chances are it’s Mariah Carey’s new festive movie, A Christmas Melody.

Airing on December 18 on Hallmark Channel, Mariah’s directorial debut is an “inspiring” story about a single mother, played by Lacey Chabert (ahem, Gretchen Weiners) who moves back to her hometown with her young daughter. Said young daughter finds it hard to adjust to her new surroundings and leans on her music teacher, played by Mariah, to help her write a song for the “annual Christmas Variety Show”, which we’re sure will bring all the feels.

If you want to see what you’re in for, or just check out Mariah in a debatable pearls and Adidas tracksuit get-up, you can watch the trailer for yourself below. We’re sure it will be just as good, if not better, than Glitter back in 2001. You heard it here first.
