Victoria Police are searching for thieves who stole more than $1 million worth of Hermès handbags from a Brighton home last week in a case they are labelling on their website as “Totes Couture”.
Investigators believe that the offenders forced entry into the house some time between September 18 and October 4 while the residents were overseas, and proceeded to steal 30 handbags worth more than a hefty mil.
Glen Eira Crime Investigation Unit detectives hope to have “the crooks in their ‘clutches’ soon” (their words, not ours), and are urging anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers or to submit confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
French fashion brand Eleven Paris, home to popular celebrity and fashion designer message apparel, is facing a massive lawsuit at the moment. And by massive, we mean being sued by Kanye West, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jay Z and Pharrell Williams. According to People, the artists claim they “never gave the label the go-ahead to bare [sic] their faces, names and messages on their apparel.”
They teamed up and filed a lawsuit in New York federal court, stating that Eleven Paris used unauthorized slogans such as “Kanye Is My Homie” and “Pharrell Is My Brotha.” The lawsuit claims the company ignored past cease and desist warnings from the plaintiffs. (more…)
She’s set to dominate cinema screens worldwide as the latest Bond Girl and to coincide with the release of the highly anticipated Spectre, Léa Seydoux graces the cover of U.K. Vogue‘s November issue. As our forums received a tidbit that the French actress was to front an upcoming issue of the magazine, we were expecting something a lot more dramatic, fierce and edgy as opposed to what Craig McDean and team have delivered. Photographed wearing Dolce & Gabbana on the cover, our forums were left feeling a little deflated.
“She looks uncomfortable. What an awkward shot for the cover,” exclaimed jeffandtheworld the moment the cover surfaced, setting the tone for comments to come.
“Léa looks really stiff and awkward,” echoed jescajade.
Sharing the disappointment was Aizanara: “They could have something a little bit fiercer and sexier considering the ‘Bond Bombshell’ theme. They clearly wasted her cover potential. This is so basic and boring…”
MON agreed, disapproving, “Wow this looks so uncomfortable. The pose and everything, it feels so weird. It also feels pretentious. Yikes.”
“Not sure about the background but Léa looks amazing in that dress!” admitted Oxymore as things started to shape up.
Benn98 noted, “This looks really pretty, almost like a good Bazaar cover. Love the hair, porcelain beauty, and the colours. For me this is yet another stunning shot from British Vogue, they’re sticking with what works for them and that’s OK in my book.”

In case you didn’t know, pasta and lingerie go hand in hand. Well, according to Victoria’s Secret, they do. If you happen to be in the market for lace babydoll lingerie, you’ll notice the model on the VS site devouring a plate of spaghetti.

And then there’s this image where she’s sucking a spaghetti noodle into her mouth. In bed. On white sheets. (more…)
What goes up, must come down and Glamour has certainly taken four steps backward with its November cover. The magazine has been on a complete roll lately, scoring covers with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Taraji P. Henson and Karlie Kloss. Still managing to secure big names, Sandra Bullock is Glamour‘s newest cover girl, shot by photographer Matt Irwin wearing a coat from The Row. But something is seriously up with Sandra’s face on the cover and we aren’t afraid to point it out.
Forum members couldn’t wait to dive in. “YIKES! First of all, why would Sandra Bullock need to do a Glamour cover and secondly, what the heck did they do to her?!?” asked a horrified justaguy.
“She look so old here! This grey background doesn’t help too,” shared narcyza.
Also equally as appalled was Bertrando3, exclaiming, “What the hell is she wearing and that Photoshopped face and weird hairdo and ugh this is awful.”
Kite said, “So… I think this is a paparazzi/red carpet picture Photoshopped onto a body…”
Yet amazingly so, not everyone acknowledged the evident airbrushing. “How glorious to see a 51-year-old woman on the cover, and not entirely airbrushed (there clearly is to some extent, but I feel it wasn’t overdone like Harper’s Bazaar did to SJP), it’s a very nice cover. Glamour has been great lately,” approved Miss Dalloway.
“It’s always nice to see Sandra and her hair looks stunning. I’m looking forward to her feature,” anticipated Benn98.
There is undeniably a far more superior shot from Sandra’s cover story that we would’ve chosen for the cover. Check it out and share your own opinion here.
