Essena O’Neill’s Instagram-induced breakdown forced us to analyse how “fake” some can be on social media, however, there’s a new influencer about town who’s getting real with photos of cellulite, body hair and the increasingly popular granny panty.

Her name is Ashley Armitage, and her Instagram reflects that raw appeal of a 90s chick flick with hazy, dated filters, carefree, behind-the-scenes feels and chill fashion. Focusing on females on their journey though young adulthood, there’s seriously feminist vibes with how these girls are breaking the rules of current-day societal expectations. (more…)

Maxim Editor Denies ‘Enhancements’ On Sam Frost’s Cover

Sam Frost covers Maxim

Sam Frost has been public about regretting her shoot with Maxim Australia late last year, but it hasn’t stopped the magazine from retouching and republishing the old images of the reality star for its December issue.

A photo of The Bachelorette Australia appears on the front cover for December 2015, looking like she’s conducted another shoot with the men’s mag as her hair has changed from blonde to brunette since the last spread. “The Bachelorette is back by popular demand” sell line doesn’t help matters, either.

“I regretted doing the photo shoot in the first place,” Sam explained on 2Day FM’s Rove and Sam. “Like I said, I wasn’t in a great frame of mind. I wish I didn’t do it in hindsight,” she continued, but felt “well and good” about the matter as “it’s obvious that they’re old photos” thanks to her then-blonde hair.  (more…)

WATCH: The ‘Zoolander 2’ Trailer Is Everything You Hoped It Would Be

Zoolander 2 Trailer


The Zoolander 2 trailer was released overnight and, heck, it’s a doozy, living up to every expectation we had since it was first announced at Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show earlier this year, complete with an epic walk-off between Han-Solo and Boo-Lander.

Tapping into a modern modelling landscape, Derek’s “biggest model in the world” title has been dethroned by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays an androgynous model named “All”, but a new-found irrelevance is not the biggest problem he and his nemesis-turned-BFF Hansel face.

There is a serial killer on the loose, murdering “the most beautiful people in the world” like Justin Bieber, Usher, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, who all take their last breath with Derek’s famous Blue Steel pucker.

To help get to the bottom of it, Interpol agent Montana Grosso, played by Penelope Cruz, asks Derek and Hansel to “infiltrate the world of high fashion”, which sees them run into the likes of a hardly recognisable Kristen Wiig and a surprising new look from Will Ferrel’s Mugatu.

Rather than giving too much away, watch the action-packed video for yourself above.

Users can join the classic Mean Girls saga by creating an original character, a Senior who transfers to North Shore High School. The character has high hopes of attending their dream college but one mighty force stands in the way: Regina George. The college only accepts one student per year and Regina has her cold heart set on the same school. Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Regina George. (more…)

Claire Danes and Allure Deliver the Goods for December (Forum Buzz)

Our forums would never have guessed in a million years that we’d be dependent on Allure to deliver a festive, glamorous and all-around gorgeous cover for the month of December. It has been evident in each and every thread that we were yearning for something stylish and Claire Danes gives us just what we desire. Shot by Sebastian Kim with styling from Paul Cavaco throughout, the Homeland actress looks sensational wearing a blue silk Lanvin dress and we’re completely sold.

Our forums were left shouting from the rooftops. “Oh she actually looks good, usually they have worse covers! Plus I love seeing her on the cover,” shared a pleasantly surprised KateTheGreatest.

“Claire Danes looks super glamorous, totally love the cover!” echoed marsnoop2.

Nymphaea was in the mood for some glamour too, writing, “Stunning Claire, great cover! Feels very pure.”

In agreement was Oxymore, hailing, “Really nice cover, I love it!”

Also over the moon with the outcome was MON: “For the first time, an Allure cover that will definitely stand out! Stunning!”

“I love this cover. This is much better than Vogue… Claire looks gorgeous and I love the lip color that pops on the cover,” admired TaylorBinque.

“I’ll take all of it. But given the change of editorship, I get the feeling this magazine is now an endangered species,” voiced a concerned tigerrouge after news broke that the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Linda Wells has left the position after a 24-year tenure.
