Designer Roland Mouret Wants You to Have More Sex

Think of the best fashion tips you’ve ever heard. Now throw them out the window. In a recent interview with Red magazine, designer Roland Mouret opened up about his friendship with Victoria Beckham, making the Galaxy dress for “women who need to wear bras” and why he went broke. But it was his honest and empowering insights about style and the female form that really got our attention. Here are our favorite words of wisdom:

On his “training”: “You know, I’ve learnt everything about fashion in bed. I’ve been touching so many bodies to know how to dress them up. I think I translate ‘touch’ into clothes.”

On the real reason we dress up: “There is something about the body shape that’s become part of my signature silhouette. Dresses are for undressing. We all dress up to undress.”

On women’s relationship to their bodies: “They don’t really like their upper arms, oh, and they don’t like their thighs. In fact, most women don’t like a lot about their bodies. We have such a problem with body dysmorphia in our society and women as young as 30 have the impression that they’ve started to lose it. I think it’s weird.”

On what women should do if his dress isn’t doing the trick: “Then you need to have sex. You may lack confidence when you look at yourself in the mirror but the moment you see yourself through the eyes of your lover, you start to change. An outfit can do the trick but having sex with somebody you love is much better.”

Now that’s some style advice we can get into.

Watch: Rick Owens Doesn’t Sketch or Use Mood Boards

Rick Owens is gearing up to show his Spring 2015 collection in Paris this week and before the designer’s latest hits the catwalk, The New York Times visited him at his studio in Paris. We discover a lot about Owens’ process – he doesn’t sketch anything and he doesn’t use mood boards to lay out his designs.

Owens says his aversion to the designer staple comes from a desire to keep an air of mystery around his works in progress. “A mood board would just explain too much to everybody,” he says. “I don’t want everybody to know what my composition is about and where my references came from. And also, I don’t want the literal example of my references in front of me. I like having references that are vague that I kind of force myself to have to use as a memory instead of a visual example.”

Watch Owens at work in his studio below.

Guiliana Rancic is in town for Westfield’s #MostHunted Spring 14 campaign, and like a good style ambassador she’s been sporting a mix of Australian labels during her time down under.

We’re thinking Willow could definitely be a favourite of hers, as the TV personality was snapped twice in the Aussie label over the last week. She touched down in Sydney wearing a statement Willow coat, which was styled perfectly with black skinny-leg pants and Azzedine Alaïa pumps. (more…)

Bottega Veneta Taps Julia Nobis for Knot Fragrance Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Bottega Veneta released a new fragrance and the advertising campaign has just hit our forums. The fragrance entitled Knot is described as a seductive and stylish scent inspired by the Italian Riviera. The brand tapped Australian beauty Julia Nobis to front the fragrance, which hits stores this month. Photographed by David Armstrong wearing a classic black dress with her blond tresses styled in sophisticated, loose waves, Julia also stars in the commercial directed by Axel Lindahl.

Ad Campaign Bottega Veneta Knot Fragrance Julia Nobis


Members of our forums have mixed reactions about the campaign. “Wow, Julia looks particularly awful here, the styling makes her look aged beyond her years,” commented HeatherAnne, clearly not an admirer of the campaign’s direction.

“So lifeless. That look might work for runways but she should turn it up a bit for a fragrance campaign,” criticized CharlottefromCA.

MyNameIs wasn’t a fan, either and posted, “That image is totally wrong for a perfume ad. It looks so random and unremarkable. Almost like a backstage picture. Julia looks good in the commercial, but not in the picture. They should’ve stuck with the same styling as they had in the commercial.”

“I love the dress and overall design but Julia looks off, the hair for sure looks awful to me but also the sad look on her eyes, maybe?” asked kokobombon.

Benn98 responded: “The dress really is the only redeeming feature of this campaign. I think they must’ve aimed for subtle sensuality as one can see that was achieved in the video, but the shoot doesn’t reflect that at all. It just looks dour. Glad the platinum hair is gone.”

GIVENCHYlover‘s positive comment stood out from the rest: “Sophisticated and delicate. Very Bottega.”
