Poor Jessica Gomes. The Aussie model was subject to a cruel prank on-set for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, when director Robb Riley thought it would be a fun idea to scare Jessica with a fake snake up his leg.
The David Jones ambassador fully freaks out, screaming, running away and dropping the F bomb, but other than that, handles the situation like a pro. “What the hell?” she says as she laughs off what is one of her “greatest fears”. (more…)
Five years ago who would’ve thought that Lara Bingle and and her former-fiancé, cricketer Michael Clarke, would both have, or be having, a baby with another person? Well, here we are. Following the news that Lara and Sam Worthington welcomed their first child into the world this March, Michael and Kyly Clarke have announced that they are expecting their first child.
The married couple both shared the news on Instagram this morning in an extremely similar format, using a photo of them together with basically the same caption. “@michaelclarkeofficial and I are extremely ecstatic to announce that we are expecting our first child,” Kyly wrote. “Can’t wait to meet baby Clarke.”
Kyly and Michael haven’t revealed how far along she is, a gender or a due date. We think it’s going to be a stylish little tot with killer team-leadership skills. The pair have been married since 2012.
Congrats, you two!
She’s fast-tracked to becoming a household name (having just covered American Harper’s Bazaar solo and with plenty of international Vogue covers under her belt) and now, Anna Ewers graces Vogue China‘s latest. This isn’t the German bombshell’s debut Chinese Vogue cover, having previously covered the October 2014 issue. This time around, Anna was captured by Patrick Demarchelier, who photographed the model-of-the-moment wearing a Chanel creation with her blond tresses styled into soft waves complemented by a dramatic red lip.
“I rarely like Vogue China (well look at last month’s cover) but I really love this cover!” GreyVetiver admitted.
“The new font they use for these past two issues is incredibly gorgeous, feels like a direct conversion of Vogue U.S. text into Chinese, so commercial but also stylish. That’s some tough work to do. Good for them!” acknowledged Pricciao.
Also delighted was MON: “Stunning! Now this is Vogue China! What a stunning comeback from last month’s disaster. Anna is just so gorgeous. That stare is beyond this world.”
In agreement over Anna’s expression was bluestar. “Anna!!! Such a stunning cover. Her stare goes through it, so piercing. Can’t wait for the editorial!” he anticipated.
Bertrando3 was a fan too, exclaiming, “Now this is a great cover, I love it. Patrick Demarchelier got me worried with his last few covers (like the latest Vogue Australia with Victoria) but this is good-old Demarchelier!”
“This is fantastic. Anna’s face is made for magazine covers,” declared gossiping.

The world can’t seem to get enough of attractive celebrity offspring and neither can the folks at Town & Country, who have featured Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson on the cover of its “Modern Swans” issue.
The Knick actress is well aware of the stigma that comes with being the daughter of someone famous. She realizes she could have taken the path many of her celebrity kid cohorts do, capitalizing on their family name to carve out their own spaces in the tabloid world. But Hewson is more interested in building an actual career for herself. “There’s the cliché of the celebrity kid with a fragrance and a handbag line and they design jewelry on the side and maybe dabble in acting,” she said. “I’ve always been very particular about the fact that this is the one thing I want to do.”
Town & Country‘s list of Modern Swans is heavy on those with famous relatives. Hewson joins names like Lottie Moss, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Morgane Polanski, Leonetta Fendi, Tali Lennox and more on the list of It girls.
Topshop is appealing to our thirst for nostalgia with its latest collection. The high street retailer is giving fans the opportunity to pick up some old school Topshop pieces with the announcement of a capsule collection reissue of some of popular older styles.
Topshop opens up its archives and reaching back, way back to resell some sought-after styles, going as far back as the 70s, 80s and (of course) 90s for super cool and trendy pieces that would totally work today. From a fringe-knit sweater to silver lamé prom dress, the collection is a blast from the past. Topshop creative director Kate Phelan says the retailer aimed to make sure the reissue pieces were as close to the originals as possible. “We enlisted the help of an archivist to source pieces from a variety of places,” she said, including her own personal archives. “I actually stumbled across a photograph of me wearing the exact tiered maxi dress, accessorized with a silk headscarf and carrying my pet guinea pig.”
Topshop isn’t just stopping at this collection. They’re encouraging folks to post images of their favorite throwbacks from the retailer on social media with the hashtag #bringthatback. So that old pair of Topshop pants you wore back in the 80s could totally be yours again. Ah, the power of nostalgia.
