In a first for ELLE Australia, the fashion magazine has revealed that its July issue will feature a lift-and-flip cover starring Aussie supermodel Gemma Ward.
The edition is set to be titled ‘The Many Faces Of Gemma Ward,’ and will feature five of Ward’s different looks, enabling readers to flip to create up to 35 different combination looks, care of the page and her face being split into thirds.
“Since launching almost three years ago, ELLE Australia has always sought to innovate,” said editor-in-chief Justine Cullen of the innovative new cover. “Traditionally, a magazine’s cover has been sacred ground, but I loved the idea of pushing the boundaries to get our audience to engage with the cover beyond the cover lines.”
The most highly anticipated campaign of the season is finally here. After a spectacular Pre-Fall campaign, we were expecting great things from Prada for Fall 2016. Lensed by the legendary Steven Meisel, models Vanessa Axente, Caitie Greene and Kiki Willems take the spotlight this season, each photographed with the same wet hairstyle and not doing much else. Meisel’s cut and paste job did not go down well on our forums.
It was fair to declare the campaign a flop within seconds. “God, I hate that greasy wet hairstyle so much,” cried out Scotty straight away.
“Jesus, what a train wreck!! Are we sure this is the version which will go to print and digital? There’s absolutely nothing good about this! And Vanessa Axente, really?” asked a horrified Benn98. (more…)
In the biggest Lip Kit news to rock the Internet since, oh, last week (her Smurf- Americana-inspired matte blues go on sale today), Kylie Jenner just announced (via Snapchat, as with all else) that her eponymous cosmetics brand is about to get its own brick-and-mortar location. Unless the reality star hopped on a plane and somehow resisted the urge to document herself while doing so, her beauty empire’s flagship location looks to be California.
Yesterday, the Senate voted to keep a proposal to block gun sales to suspected terrorists on the bargaining table but even that minimal measure has been placed in a bureaucratic limbo that will likely prevent it from being adopted anytime soon. Cue a deep, deep sigh.
Amy Schumer has been an outspoken advocate of gun control ever since a gunman opened fire in a Louisiana theater during a screening of Trainwreck, claiming two causalities before taking his own life. In 2015, she broached the topic on SNL. This April, her own Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, dedicated an entire episode to the subject of gun control (entitled “Welcome to the Gun Show”). However, in light of the recent mass shooting in Orlando and yesterday’s Senate ruling, the no-nonsense comedian and Vogue cover girl released yet another sketch communicating her disgust with legislators’ mishandling of the issue.

The old maxim “Behind every great man there is a great woman” is about as relevant as the sanitary belt. In today’s world, “Behind every successful woman is another successful woman” — at least according to Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, coiner of the term Lean In and founder of the women’s nonprofit organization of the same name.
In Lean In’s new campaign, “Together Women Can,” the best-selling author and champion of women in the workforce asks all women to #LeanInTogether — with a little help from a #GirlSquad to rival Taylor Swift’s. The campaign’s promotional video features powerful women (Kerry Washington, Emma Watson, Lena Dunham, Megyn Kelly, Eva Longoria, Serena Williams, Abby Wambach) from the entertainment, sports and television industries describing just how crucial women are to the success of fellow women in the workplace.
Each celebrity names the badass female who had the greatest impact on her career. Kerry Washington opens the video, attesting, “I’m not sure what my career would look like if not for Shonda Rhimes.” For Emma Watson, that person is Sophia Coppola, Lena Dunham shouts out Jenny Konner (to the surprise of no one), Serena Williams thanks her big sister and so on and so forth.

Yesterday, the star-studded, gothic portrait series, which aptly features icons like Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love and Genesis P-Orridge, added the likes of Kendall Jenner to its ranks. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star turned fashion favorite is virtually unrecognizable with bleached eyebrows, towering platform boots, teased hair and dark, smoky eye makeup. (Perhaps this is the getup she should’ve worn on her Hollywood Tours escapade?) Photographer David Sims masterfully captured this new side of Kendall who, unlike the aforementioned subculture legends, likely had to delve deep within herself to unleash her inner vampire. (more…)
