Australia’s Oldest Man Knits Teeny-Tiny Sweaters for Injured Penguins

If you think you’re pretty good at life, you might need to check yourself after hearing how Australia’s oldest man spends his time. 109-year-old Alfred “Alfie” Date has been knitting up a storm creating teeny-tiny sweaters for injured penguins, and it’s so sweet we just might cry.

In the event of an oil spill in March last year, Phillip Island’s Penguin Foundation called upon keen knitters to make tiny woollen jumpers to help penguins on a path to rehabilitation. Responses came from all over the world, but the most heartfelt donation was a little closer to home.

Ninemsn reports that self-proclaimed knitting aficionado and Australia’s oldest living man, Alfie, from NSW’s Central Coast, was approached by a pair of nurses at his aged-care home  only 12 to 13 hours after arriving. “The two girls come in to me and say ‘We believe you can knit,'” Aflie told Ninemsn. They left him some heavy wool and he got cracking, stitching away for the large colony of penguins living on Victoria’s Phillip Island.

Margot Robbie’s Got the London Look Sorted

Australian actress Margot Robbie mightn’t be used to the cold weather of the UK, but we’re loving what the wintry climate’s doing to her wardrobe. She’s out and about in London town at the moment promoting her new film Focus alongside Will Smith, who she adores, and is repping a ladylike sophistication to die for.

The BFC Contemporary Shop Is Back for a Second Season

London Fashion Week is just around the corner and the British Fashion Council has announced that it is teaming up with online giant eBay for a second season of designer collaborations. The BFC Contemporary Shop will once again be exclusive to and boast a capsule collection consisting of limited-edition accessories from the likes of Zoë Jordan, Paper London, Georgia Hardinge and Alexis Barrell.

The collection features silk scarves and tablet cases that can alternatively be carried as a clutch. Of course, each piece in the collection captures the designer’s unique signature. Jordan, for instance, has taken inspiration directly from her Spring 2015 collection, adorning a clutch and silk scarf with her blue glacial print. It’s a definite favourite of ours.

You’ll be pleased to know that nothing in the collection costs more than £100, which is a relatively cheap investment for a piece of limited-edition, soon-to-be fashion history. The online shop will open on February 20 to coordinate with the kick off of the Fall 2015 shows.

Caroline Trentini’s Vogue Ukraine Cover Gets Mixed Reviews (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Ukraine managed to impress us last month, but can the publication do it again? For its big March 2015 issue, the magazine tapped Caroline Trentini and enlisted Tom Munro to capture both the cover image and accompanying story. The U.S. Vogue favorite stands before a studio backdrop wearing a piece from Louis Vuitton with her hair pulled back, putting the focus on the (questionable) eye makeup.

“I’d expect something a little more dark and sexy from Tom Munro. This cover isn’t working for me because I don’t like the makeup and Caroline is overly Photoshopped but I do like the colors,” noted KateTheGreatest.

Oxymore shared the same sentiments: “I don’t like it at all. I think the makeup doesn’t suit her too. I’ve never been a Caroline fan and I don’t understand the hype around her.”

Not everyone disliked the cover, though. “I like it a lot, I think Caroline looks great and I love the color scheme,” said marsnoop2.

“Sorry, but I really do not understand how is it possible that this magazine still exists… but this cover is pretty good, I like the colors,” GlamorousBoy shared.

Breathless simply declared, “I don’t hate it.”

Forum member ellastica was also on board and admired, “They did at least try to do something different with the cover.. love her freckles. Caroline looks so grown up here!”

Watch: Rebecca Minkoff, Leandra Medine and More Talk Love Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Rebecca Minkoff is feeling a little sentimental. The designer rounded up eight of her style influencer pals to muse on love for a Valentine’s Day themed video, aptly called “Love is in the Air at Rebecca Minkoff.” Leandra Medine, DJ Chelsea Leyland, Refinery29 Senior Style Editor Annie Georgia Greenberg, P.S. – I Made This… founder Erica Domesek, Teen Vogue Senior Editor Jessica Minkoff, stylist Marina Muñoz, Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem and Karen Walker campaign star Toast the dog join the designer for the video.

The crew sits down to answer a series of love-related questions, like what it feels like to be in love (like getting Gakked on Nickelodeon, according to Medine), if they believe in soulmates and what their ideal relationship would be like. It’s definitely a touching and fun way to celebrate the holiday — whether or not you share it with someone special.

Watch Minkoff and crew chat about love in the video above.
