A shopper does not a designer make, but a lawyer? Wonderfully so. JOLIE was founded by former lawyer Ivy Chen, who swapped late nights with legal files for late nights with leather. “The legal world seems glamorous, especially on TV, but it’s totally different from fashion — I don’t regret it for one second,” she says of launching her line of streamlined leather carry-on bags with rolling wheels and multi-compartments.
We can all agree that Beyoncé’s homemade music video for “7/11” is fantastic. It is hard to bring anything Bey does to the next level (because well, duh, it’s Beyoncé), but we think Serena Williams may have done exactly just that.
The Vogue cover star filmed her own tennis-themed version of the music video along with a few of her pals, her dog and of course, a camera-equipped tennis racket in tow. We see Ms. Williams spinning with her foot up, busting a move through the hallways of the BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach, Florida and smack, smack, smacking those tennis balls like she don’t care.
Filmed with a GoPro camera, Serena may have just made the best “7/11” parody ever. Watch it above.
Sonam Kapoor showed us what it really means to be pretty in pink as she stepped out in a breathtaking gown for the L’Oréal Paris Femina Women Awards on Monday, March 23, in Mumbai.
The Indian actress opted for a divine pale-pink piece from Australian label Maticevski’s Spring 15 collection, featuring a fitted bodice with an asymmetrical neckline. The skirt puffed out from the waist, and, although it created a dramatic shape, still managed to look completely elegant.
Sonam modernised the fairy tale vision just a little with a braided updo and a striking red lip, and added some appropriate sparkling jewellery to finish it all off. It’s got to be the prettiest thing we’ve seen all day.
Pip Edwards isn’t a regular mum, she’s a cool mum — just like Regina’s mum in Mean Girls, if you traded in the velvet tracksuit for ripped jeans and a messy lob. OK, so the comparison isn’t all there, but Pip has proved she’s got the awesome mum factor by teaming up with her 8-year-old son, Justice, for General Pants Co.’s The Perfect Pair campaign.
The project is about General Pants Co. finding their customers the perfect pair of jeans for over 40 years, looking to high-profile duos like Isabelle Cornish and Mitch Revs, Carissa Walford and Luke Farquhar, and Andy and Matt from Yolanda Be Cool to team up for photo shoots in support. Our favourite pair, though, would easily be Pip and Justice, mostly because they’re really freakin’ adorable.
“A mother and son pairing is super special,” Pip tells theFashionSpot, noting that the concept of a perfect pair isn’t always limited to romantic couples. Justice, who is also the son and stepson of Dan Single and Bambi Northwood-Blyth respectively, adds, “We like to do everything together. We like the same things.” (more…)

Cate Blanchett is no laughing matter. She’s won Oscars, people. So don’t be asking her crappy, catty questions, because she will be very, very offended and probably even humiliate you on national television. That’s what she did last night, anyway, in an interview on The Project to promote her new film, Cinderella.
Journalist Jonathan Hyla thought he was being pretty funny when he sat down with Cate. “OK, serious question. How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?” She didn’t want a bar of it. “That’s your question?” she asked, twice, before getting really evil stepmother on his ass. “That’s your f**king question?” (more…)
