Margot Robbie Baffles in Bright Yellow at Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Margot Robbie has stepped out in an insanely bright-yellow maxi dress for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in London last night, and we’re not quite sure how to feel about it.

Just last week we were frothing over the Australian actress’ red carpet return in Marc Jacobs, which was closely followed by her impressive white-on-white Dion Lee getup, but this overload of yellow has our head in a bit of a spin.

If you’ve seen The Wolf of Wall Street you’ll know full well that Margot’s got the bod to pull off this piece’s plunging neckline, but the stiff, crinkly fabric combined with the in-your-face yellow and exposed zip makes the dress look a little shoddy.

It may have worked with a shorter hemline to lessen the load, or a flowing material to bring some elegance to the look.

Melissa George Flashes Nipples, Jessica Hart Covers up in DVF at 11th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Australian beauties Jessica Hart and Melissa George stepped out to impress the fashion pack in two very different getups last night, for the 11th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards at New York’s Sun Studios. While Jessica was covering up her Victoria’s Secret body in a modest Diane Von Furstenberg ensemble, Melissa drew eyes to her bust area by donning a nipple-baring number.

If you’re trying to figure out whether or not you should show some skin or leave all to the imagination for your next big event, let these two Aussie celebs help you decide.

Don’t let the beehive hairdo and diamond jewels fool you; Melissa was no angel in this getup. As if the plunging neckline and high thigh split wasn’t enough to draw the attention away from other big names, like Alexa Chung and Joan Smalls, who were also in attendance, the 38-year-old felt baring her nipples could also be a good head-turning idea.

Kim Kardashian Bleached Her Brows

Ever wonder what an hourglass shaped hitchhiker’s thumb in designer clothes would look like? Look no further than one Kim Kardashian, who sported a pair of bleached eyebrows this week at her younger sister Kendall Jenner’s 19th birthday party. The reality star posted a few images from the festivities today, but this photo of Kimmy standing next to brow queen Cara Delevingne, is arguably the most important photo of the night.

Before you start to panic, don’t worry: She only bleached her brows for a photo shoot, so it’s not like she’s going to walk around for the next few months looking like she got into some sort of firecracker accident. For the record, we don’t think Kim looks horrible with albino brows. She’s gorgeous in general and we know she maintains her assets so, short of heavy costume makeup, there’s little anyone can do to make her not look beautiful. Must be nice! (more…)

John Galliano Loses Unfair Dismissal Case Against Former Employers

Now that he’s poised to make his debut as creative director of Maison Martin Margiela in just over three months, it’s easy to forget that John Galliano still has beef with his former employers at Christian Dior and John Galliano (the label). The designer’s been in court fighting claims of wrongful termination. Galliano claimed the two houses were “fully aware” of his struggles with alcohol and substance abuse and that such issues stemmed from his grueling work schedule. 

“I can’t let the 17 years I spent and enjoyed at Dior be blackened like this,” he said. “During these years as creative director of this house, I did not realize that its success, multiplying its sales by four, came at a destructive and exorbitant cost: my physical and mental health. Always more work, always more obligations, always more pressure, a dangerous and pathological spiral, without control.” 

With this knowledge, in spite of his reprehensible comments, Galliano insinuates that both fashion houses should not have been surprised at the misstep. While we do sympathize with the designer’s struggles, there is a degree of personal responsibility that needs to be taken into consideration. Sure, the stress of his job may have caused him to turn to drugs and alcohol, but unless the people at Dior and Galliano were physically giving him the drugs, can they really be held responsible? Probably not. Lots of people have stressful jobs, but not everyone goes on anti-Semitic tirades.

Galliano was looking for $2.4 to $13 million in damages. According to WWD, now that his claims have been rejected by the court, he’s been ordered to pay a “symbolic Euro” to both of his former employers.
