Stella McCartney to Design Team GB Kit Again for 2016 Olympics

After a truly successful debut stint designing the GB kit for the London 2012 Olympics, Stella McCartney, who has collaborated with Adidas since 2001, has been asked once more to design the kit for her home country for the 2016 games in Rio.

The news was just broken by the Mirror, giving the designer a nice head start on her vision. Seeing as the last kit took two years of development, she had better crack on with it to come up with something new.

The blue and white union jack graphic concept that the designer came up with for 2012 was so refreshing and exciting. When you think about the fact that she had to design 590 different items for 900 different athletes competing in 46 sports, it doesn’t sound like a fun job. However, all her years working with Adidas have made her a pro at this, so regardless of how many medals Team GB wins, at least we know they will look good.

WATCH: Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus in ‘Come Get It Bae’

It seems that besides funny hats, there is nothing Pharrell WIlliams enjoys more than watching attractive, multiethnic women dance for him. His last music video, “Marilyn Monroe” off his album G I R L, featured an array of hotties shaking their tail feathers. When you’ve got a good thing, you gotta run with it and so, Pharrell once again clings to the theme of beautiful dancing women for his latest music video for “Come Get it Bae,” featuring aspiring King of Diamonds dancer Miley Cyrus.

This time, Pharrell is seen recording the twirling girls on an old-timey camera, presumably a very important part of the mock auditions he’s depicting in the video. It would be creepy if it was anyone else. Of course, there’s just a little twerking action in the vid, but thankfully, it does not come from Ms. Cyrus, who’s already exhausted our tolerance on that tip. The “Wrecking Ball” singer offers her vocals, dance moves and, of course, ever-wagging tongue to the production, bopping alongside Pharrell through the entire video.

Love or hate these two chart-toppers, the song’s pretty catchy and the video is the perfect distraction on a Wednesday afternoon. Check it out below!

If you can spare a minute between shows this coming London Fashion Week, steer your smartphone to The e-tailer has something special up its sleeves in celebration of the Spring 2015 collections — a limited-run collection produced by London’s top designers.

Produced in partnership with the British Fashion Council, the BFC Contemporary initiative will support emerging U.K. fashion labels through mentorship and sales opportunities. Here’s where you come in. The designers will create and sell exclusive wares through eBay’s first BFC Contemporary Shop, launching in September.

PRISM, Zoe Jordan, Georgia Hardinge, Alexis Barrell and PAPER London will each design a single item evoking the respective brand’s signature aesthetic. eBay users can shop those items during London Fashion Week, which means you’ll want to make use of those iPhone chargers tucked underneath the front row. There’s nothing like the instant gratification of scoring a pair of Anna Laub’s sunnies or a sculptural mini from Georgia Hardinge from your seat.

“Each of the inaugural BFC Contemporary designers possesses incredible creativity and strong brand concepts,” BFC CEO Caroline Rush said during a press breakfast announcing the program. “These designers mark a new wave in British contemporary design, the rise of which we aim to fuel with this new initiative.”

The designers—minus Jordan, who was unable to attend—mingled over plates of salmon and pastries during this morning’s launch at The Arts Club. Though their wares have yet to be revealed, the abundance of midi skirts in the room surely made an impression. Talk, meanwhile, fittingly centered around the various treasures guests had uncovered in their past eBay excursions.  

Hardinge recalled picking up a vintage sewing machine on the site, then revealed that her item would draw inspiration from the “sculptural shadows on buildings.”

Oh, and designers, take note. Applications for the 2015 BFC Contemporary initiative will soon be open to all.

Cate Blanchett rarely steps a foot wrong when it comes to looking absolutely divine, and let’s be honest, the Australian actress’ porcelain complexion definitely helps her out. Cate’s outfit for this SK-II promotional event in Shanghai was no exception. She wore an elegant Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture number in her role as the skincare’s ambassador.

The white lace, scalloped-hem pencil dress was styled perfectly with pointed nude heels, delicate diamond accessories and soft makeup. The 45-year-old never ceases to amaze with her classy, soft colour choices that always complement her blond locks and fair skin, plus age-appropriate hemlines and shapes. We’re giving Cate a big thumbs up for this effortless and refined look, because the woman seemingly always gets it right.

Industrial Influences for SABA’s Spring 2015 Campaign

Although SABA remains true to its signature style of modern simplicity and high-quality design, the brand’s new Spring 2015 range sees a broader, more directional aesthetic for the Australian label. The newest campaign perfectly encompasses SABA’s new path, with the brand’s first on-location shoot taking place at a remote container park in Sydney.

Highly-acclaimed UK photographer Roger Deckker, who has worked with a mix of prestigious fashion names and brands like Anna Wintour, Oasis, Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana, photographed the industrial-themed shoot, with a result that is visually engaging surely due to its extreme, high-resolution effect.

With models that could easily be The Sims characters, thanks to the computerised feel of the campaign, the new season’s clothing looks slicker, brighter and better than ever on the incredibly stiff-looking talent. Think crisp silhouettes and fine pleating in greens, mustards, grays and whites with pops of metallic that manage to look super-sophisticated regardless of the shipping containers as a chosen backdrop.
