Amazon Fashion I Wish I Could Wear

We all know the phrase, “I wish I could wear [insert crop top, jumpsuit, miniskirt here].” Amazon Fashion Europe has the best response: just wear it! Its new campaign taps London Tall Girl blogger Marsha Campbell, plus-size activist Ana Pizarro and albino model Ingrid Behague Sockeel to wear the very garments other say they can’t. The result is simply brilliant.

Lensed by Rankin, the campaign disrupts old fashion myths while empowering women to wear whatever they choose. It’s inspiring to see Campbell strut in high heels or Pizarro flaunt her curves in a fitted dress. Sockeel is stunning in a bright red dress. Not only do they look phenomenal, they own their looks with confidence. (more…)

Pia Mia shows us some Krav Maga

Aside from an enviable dinner-table voice and a swagger style to beat, 19-year-old Guam-native Pia Mia teaches Krav Maga, an Israeli form of self defence, so we got the “Touch” singer to teach us a little somethin’ somethin’ about the practice.

After chatting to theFashionSpot about koalas and her personal style, Pia showed us the proper way to create a fist shape before you punch during boxing for impeccable fitness or to defend yourself in dangerous situations.

She found it a little tricky to do with her lengthy nails getting in the way, but you can get the gist of it with her simple rules in the video below. While it’s probably the perfect opportunity to warn you away from messing with this crooner, she’s actually the sweetest thing ever, who we can safely assume wouldn’t hurt a fly. (more…)

WATCH: One Direction Break Our Hearts All Over Again With Another ‘Torn’ Cover

True Directioners will remember when the boys reprised Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” at Simon Cowell’s pad and then again in the final three of The X Factor UK compeitiion, and this week, as they release their fifth album and their first without Zayn Malik, the group have blessed us once more with their first performance of the song in five years.

Stopping by BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” to promote a bunch of songs from the new album “Made In the A.M”, the boy band also proved that the fortune teller’s right and there’s nothing where Zayn used to lie with their old favourite “Torn”.

They also performed Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds”, which was fab, but the Natalie cover really showed us what it was to cry. While Harry Style’s voice and face have only gotten more beautiful over the past five years, we also don’t know who would object to these four now-adult men talking about lying naked on the floor.

Sharing a tell-all post with her Facebook fans, Clare begins by asking “Wanna know why I cut it all off?” before revealing the painful story which got her to this point. The Nashville star explained that when she was just four years old she was diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, a mass of cancer cells that grow in the kidney area.

Because of her severe condition, she grew up surrounded by children just like her in hospital, who she says were “mostly bald, all tubed, taped, bandaged up and stitched back together.” (more…)

The influencer with over 825,000 followers is closing her online store after its busiest month to date as she would instead like us to focus our energy into helping the environment by planting trees. 

Explaining that we are making food unsustainably and chopping down trees to allow animals to graze, Pia is calling upon her fans, followers and customers to help her initiative because “If the human race don’t start to make a change and actively start to plant trees, our main source of oxygen will simply diminish.” (more…)
