Lara Bingle, Sam Worthington Warned to Settle $10m Paparazzo Lawsuit

Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington are under real heat for their scuffle with New York photographer Sheng Li last February. They’re being warned to settle a $10 million USD for the paparazzo’s injuries, or risk the case becoming even more of a public ordeal which could be damaging to their careers.

AAP reports (via SBS) both Sam and Lara’s legal teams will be meeting with Li’s lawyer, Mark Heller, in Manhattan this Wednesday for a settlement conference. Heller has suggested the Australian power couple accept the offer or pay the consequences. “If Mr Worthington and Ms Bingle were smart, they’d settle it because otherwise this case will become a real spectacle,” Heller told AAP on Monday.

Heller also had a little prediction for the movie star and model’s future should they refuse the settlement, saying, “I think it’s clear society now doesn’t like the abusive conduct by celebrities.” He added, “A number of athletes recently lost their jobs when videos of them assaulting people went viral, so if this man wants to sell any movies, I would think he would try to resolve this in a proper and honourable way.” (more…)

Bradley Cooper, is that you? The Oscar-nominated actor stripped down to his skivvies to grace the cover of W magazine’s January movie issue, which profiles the best performances in 2015 with the help of 39 actors. Cooper is one of seven celebrities who secured a cover, including Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Shailene Woodley, Julianne Moore and Benedict Cumberbatch, who shares the spotlight with Keira Knightley. 

The W shoot is not exactly what you’d expect from the guy who made his claim to fame with machismo flicks like The Hangover. Nor is it what you’d expect from a classic leading man promoting his upcoming military drama, American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood. And that’s exactly why we like it. (more…)

Are Christian Dior Campaigns Becoming Too Pretentious? (Forum Buzz)

From Raf Simons’ very first season at Christian Dior, his vision was evident. The Belgian designer continues to stay true to his aesthetic, tapping Willy Vanderperre for the fifth time to photograph his latest campaign. To shake things up a little, Natalie Westling and Lexi Boling join Julia Nobis (who starred in last season’s ads) for the iconic French fashion house’s Spring 2015 ready-to-wear images, which are starting to appear in major fashion titles. The three girls each pose in a bright, stark white studio setting in typical Vanderperre style.

Ad Campaign Christian Dior Spring 2015 Willy Vanderperre


What do our forum members think? Well, we’ve received mixed reviews. “Beautiful image. Julia is perfect for Dior,” raved Gábor, clearly impressed with Dior’s new fashion spots.

“I really love this. I’d take Julia over Daria Strokous any day,” replied GivenchyHomme in agreement.

Nepenthes was also a fan and commented, “Flawless. Julia is perfect for Raf’s Dior just as Karlie was perfect for John’s.”

Although not everyone was left so impressed and it appears as though the majority are rooting for change already. “I really love the pictures but it’s too pretentious. That ‘arty’ and clean thing is so boring. I get it, Dior is modern now and blah blah blah but, is modern lifeless?” asked Lola701.

Feeling the same way, Nepenthes returned to the thread to add: “Love Natalie and I like this campaign in general. That said, I do agree that Dior needs to inject some life into the image of the brand because this clean/arty thing won’t last for long. I definitely hope it won’t take as long for a different campaign as it took for Ralph Lauren.”

“I hate every campaign since Raf has been there. Extremely boring and looks so uninspired, I cannot tell them apart,” slammed gossiping.

HeatherAnne suggested, “Honestly, they’d be better off using celebrities. Natalie looks too young, and Julia is too masculine.”

Kiddie Spas: They’re Not Just for Toddlers and Tiaras Contestants Anymore


Too young for a treatment?

What would a 5 year old need with a facial? Apparently a lot, because spas are starting to cater more to that young demographic. The New York Times published a piece highlighting the growing trend of kid-friendly spas, focused on bringing a dash of luxury to young girls and sometimes boys. Day spa options for kids are cropping up all over the country, offering services to pamper your little one – from banana-scented facials to full-on massage sessions.

Treatments like “The Superhero,” a message that includes an aromatherapy spray means to relax the muscles and mani-pedis are just a glimpse at the sort of options these spas usually offer. While some parents frown upon treating children in this manner – after all, spas tend to be more adult territory – the International Spa Association President Lynne McNees thinks of it as instilling good habits into children. If kids start taking care of their skin at a young age, they’ll probably continue doing so as adults, is the rationale.

But any parents looking to treat their kids won’t have to search too far to find service according to the International Spa Association, 25% of spas in the U.S. have options for kids under 13. Four years ago, only 15% offered such services. Clearly, it’s more than just Toddlers and Tiaras contestants getting in on the trend.
