It’s busy times for Nicole Trunfio, who has been jumping between the inconveniently timed New York Fashion Week and the Toronto International Film Festival over the last few days. We guess that’s what you have to put up with when you’re a fashion model with an acting career on the rise.
At least Nicole’s got the wardrobe thing covered while promoting her role in the new Aussie kids film, Paper Planes, which also stars Sam Worthington. She was snapped on her way to an interview for the film, donning a clashing Scanlan Theodore ensemble. You might recognise this particular look, because it was also rocked by Jessica Gomes for the David Jones Spring fashion launch.
The dramatic and textured one-shoulder crop and tropical print knee-length skirt work perfectly together by sticking to a white, black and flesh-coloured palette, meaning the differing prints aren’t an issue. She opted for pointed-toe black heels and a structured purple bag which, surprisingly, worked well with the getup. It’s a little less skimpy than we normally see from the model, which is why we’re such a fan of this look on her.
Iggy Azalea looked like some kind of secret agent at Monday’s launch for new Calvin Klein fragrance, Reveal, wearing a short-sleeved camel wrap trench by Calvin Klein and epic black knee-high boots.

For months, folks have been buzzing about Apple’s latest unveiling and today, after much speculation, the tech giant has revealed not only the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus, but its new wearable option the Apple Watch. This new product comes at a time when wearables are all the rage – just ask Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch and Polo Ralph Lauren, so you know Apple had to get in on the fun. After all, with the release of Google Glass, it’s only natural that Apple would clap back with a cool wearable.
As with any new product, there’s a lot of new information to take in – especially for a launch like this. Apple’s technology could revolutionize the wearable market and it sounds like we need to start getting used to it. There’s a lot of information out there about the watch, but we gathered everything we could find out about it:
- It’s stylish: Well, duh, of course it is – it’s a wearable after all, and no one wants to wear anything ugly. There are several different watch faces to choose from, as well as six interchangeable straps ranging from the loud and sporty (like a neon yellow band) to sleek and chic. We bet that brands will soon be jumping on the chance to collaborate and open up a whole new market for designers.
- There will be three different types of Apple Watches: Users can choose between the Apple Watch, crafted from stainless steel, a sportier option, and the super fancy Apple Watch Edition, which boasts 18 karat gold hardware.
- There is a large and small version: People with tiny wrists, rejoice! Apple is offering two sizes to accommodate delicate-boned users.
- There are several watch faces to choose from: A flapping butterfly, swimming jellyfish – you can even have Mickey Mouse on your watch. Perhaps we can look forward to more options in the future? Only time can tell.
- The watch can sense when you raise your wrist: IT KNOWS EVERYTHING. When you move your wrist, it activates the display.
- It’s the first Apple product that Steve Jobs had no hand in creating: But we think Mr. Jobs would have been proud.
- It’s more expensive than the cheapest iPad: Prices start at $349. Compare that to the iPad mini, which starts at $299.
- The watches interact with each other: There is an option you can use to “get someone’s attention.” Tap the screen and it sends a digital alert that someone is trying to contact you.
- It is expected to release in early 2015: So start saving your dollars NOW.
- It tracks your daily activity: It can tell whether you run, walk or stay put.
- It’s got a crown: The side of the watch has a dial, which they’re calling the “digital crown,” which allows you to shuffle through apps and displays. You can quickly zoom into an app by turning it.
- It checks your pulse: You can even send someone your own heartbeat ,which is only slightly creepy.
- It syncs to your iPhone: Naturally, the Apple Watch is going to work in tandem with some of your other Apple devices. According to myfox, it will pair with the new iPhones to send notifications right to your wrist.
In what seems to be a never-ending cavalcade of September covers, we now take a look at what Vogue Thailand produced for the most important issue of the year. For September 2014, the magazine enlisted Hana Jirickova as its cover model, who was shot by David Bellemere. The 23-year-old model from the Czech Republic is no stranger to his lens; they’ve shot together on numerous occasions for both French and Spanish Vogue. This time around, the pair took to the streets and riverbanks of Paris to showcase the season’s new pieces. On the cover, we see Hana model an outfit from Louis Vuitton, while posing on some steps leading down to the riverfront.

It seems our forum members share mixed opinions regarding the cover. “What a depressing ugly cover. Could be an ELLE cover,” commented an underwhelmed jeffandtheworld.
“It´s depressing indeed. The styling and layout are horrible, there’s nothing eye catching about this…” agreed kokobombon.
Valentine27 shared, “I’m with you regarding the depressing feeling of the cover. One or two good images in the editorial but that’s it. ‘Paris, c’est chic!’ is such a boring theme and it feels like we’ve seen it a hundred times before.”
“I quite like Hana, so no complaints from me. Sure the image doesn’t work as a cover but she looks good regardless, they could’ve chosen another shot from that ed. It’s quite novel of them to showcase an autumn backdrop other than your standard ‘girl in a forest’ vibe,” posted Benn98.
We did have a select group of members who admired the cover, however. “I love this girl! It’s a nice cover, I don’t like the text — it doesn’t flatter the picture at all, but the styling is great (especially the shoes),” exclaimed Srdjan.
GlamorousBoy was impressed: “I am shocked how good [a] cover it is for VT!”

A little over a week ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, aka IRL Mr. and Mrs. Smith, finally tied the knot after several years of dating and raising their brood, which is six kids strong. The news came as a surprise to pretty much everyone – they wed in secret at the Château Miraval in France, with their children playing a huge part in the ceremony. Jolie even enlisted Atelier Versace tailor Luigi Massi to create her gown, which was embroidered with pictures drawn by her many kids.
But while everyone made a fuss over Angelina’s very sweet frock, poor Brad’s ensemble got overlooked. If you were wondering what the groom was wearing, we now have the answer. For his big day, Pitt got dapper in a Salvatore Ferragamo suit. According to Ferragamo’s people, the actor donned a 2-button navy suit with a notch lapel.

Who says blogging doesn’t pay? It’s making The Blonde Salad’s Chiara Ferragni a cute little coin. She launched her website five years ago, an anniversary which she will fete tonight, and no doubt about it, the blogger has a lot to celebrate. Besides the fact that she’s enjoyed wild success and lofty opportunities through her blog presence, she’s moved on to designing shoes, launching the Chiara Ferragni Collection, which according to WWD, is about to make her very, very rich.
The line, comprised mostly of whimsical sparkly loafers, is expected to do $8 million in revenue, which sounds like a big number, but when you consider the breadth of Ferragni’s success with shoes, should come as little surprise. Her collaboration with Steve Madden sold 16,000 pairs in just two weeks. Her collaboration with Superga followed suit, selling out in only a few weeks. If anything, the girl knows how to sell some shoes.
Ferragni recently made her shoe collection available in the United States, debuting her offerings for Fall 2014 at the Magic tradeshow that went down in Las Vegas. Sure, The Blonde Salad blog makes plenty of cash, but the real money for Ferragni is cearly in the shoe biz.
