Tyson Beckford’s Birthday Celebrations Take Over Sydney

If you’re a Sydneysider, chances are you’ve probably bumped into Tyson Beckford, or part of his down-under posse, during his 44th birthday celebrations over the last week. Even though he turned the big double-four back on December 19, the festivities and Sydney gallivanting still seem to be in full force. Thanks to social media, we feel like we were there for the whole thing.

Since Tyson flew into Sydney from New York’s JFK last Wednesday, December 17, he’s been living it up with his his 23-year-old bae, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Shanina Shaik, and fellow home-grown leggy babe Ajak Deng, hitting anywhere and everywhere Sydney has to offer in what seems to be a never-ending celebration.

The hot spots have so far included Bondi Beach with his “Babii,” Darling Harbour, Magic City, Westfield Sydney, The Ivy nightclub (on the exclusive Level 6, of course) and Wooloomooloo’s Otto restaurant.  (more…)

Jesinta Campbell is Engaged

Model Jesinta Campbell and Sydney Swans star Lance “Buddy” Franklin are putting a ring on it. The former Miss Universe contestant shared the news on her Instagram yesterday, writing, “I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. There are no words to describe how happy we are #ENGAGED.”

It was only 14 months ago that Jesinta, 23, and Lance, 27, officially announced their relationship, again on Instagram, but it looks like a case of “when you know, you know,” with Jesinta already thinking about little ones. She recently told Women’s Health magazine, “In five years time, I want to build my business and also be in a position to start a family.”

Congratulations, you two. We’re sure Jesinta will be the best-dressed WAG for years to come, giving Terry Biviano and Rebecca Judd a run for their money.

The Big Bang Theory actress wore a long-sleeve Camilla and Marc dress, which featured a high neck with chunky embellishments. It was all a bit rock-glam with Kaley’s coiffed blonde hair, smoky eyes and black accessories complementing the dark number, but the flippy flounce and white nail polish added some much-needed playful energy to the look.

The piece is from Camilla and Marc’s upcoming Autumn 2015 collection, so if you’re a fan, it’s set to hit stores this coming January.

Eric Garner’s Death Becomes a Selling Point for Two T-Shirt Pushers

Over the past few weeks, hundreds of protests have gone down across America against the rampant spread of police brutality and in opposition to grand jury decisions to not indict two police officers who killed two unarmed black men, Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in separate incidents. Several hashtags and slogans have arisen in the aftermath of the court decisions, including “I can’t breathe,” Garner’s last words and a rallying cry for a modern American movement. Of course, there will be people looking to capitalize on the popularity of a much-needed call for social change and an Illinois woman is looking to trademark “I can’t breathe” so that she can sell product. 

Catherine Crump, a Waukegan, Illinois resident, wants the rights to the phrase so she can use it on hoodies and T-shirts. She has sent in a petition to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for rights to use the phrase. Crump says that she had filed for a trademark August 18, a month after Garner was killed in the street, and that her request has “nothing to do with the Garner family,” though she seems perfectly comfortable making a few dollars off the death of its patriarch.

Missoni’s Spring 2015 Campaign Resembles a Neiman Marcus Catalog (Forum Buzz)

Christmas is coming earlier than expected this year for us fashion folk with the arrival of the Spring 2015 campaigns. Missoni’s spots are the most recent to surface on our forums and members find themselves disappointed. The Italian fashion house known for its colorful knitwear designs keeps Dutch artist Viviane Sassen as the photographer this season but trades model Joan Smalls for Amanda Murphy. Amanda is captured amongst a set of metallic globes while posing inside a pastel colored purpose-built box.

Leave it to our forum members to voice their honest opinions. Aedlacir wastes no time and strongly describes the images as “dated muck.”

“It looks like those Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf advertorials but worse,” adds GivenchyHomme who is about to set the tone of the thread.

Testinofan feels the same way and posts, “I don’t like it, very strange and it looks like a Bergdorf Goodman catalogue.”

As does justaguy: “Totally agree it looks very NM catalog. I do like the concept, but execution is a bit messy & dated looking.”

Things aren’t looking up. “Not eye-catching enough for a campaign. It would have [been] good for editorial but not good enough for the campaign,” shares an underwhelmed DutchHomme.

“OK, it’s time to end this. Missoni with Sassen is becoming like Marc Jacobs was with Teller. It was very interesting initially, but I’m actually yearning for a normal campaign! Sassen is an incredibly talented artist who set a profound precedent for the combination of contemporary art in campaigns (indeed in collections) with her past campaigns. Now it’s time to move on,” suggests an uninterested Benn98.
