It’s the competition that made her a household name, but Jesinta Campbell is so embarrassed by her hair, makeup and outfit choices from when she was Miss Universe Australia that she’d prefer to block out her reign altogether. 

Speaking to Sydney Confidential, the model admitted that her pageant queen look was “just so tacky”, which is a fair call compared to her chic and well-groomed appearance (with thanks to her stylist sister, Aleysha Campbell) on red carpets these days. (more…)

Ruby Rose and Ed Sheeran Are Hosting The MTV Europe Music Awards

OITB Season 3 might be over, but Ruby Rose is still kicking as a sought-after sexual awakener. The ultimate slashie announced that she will be co-hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards alongside everyone’s second favourite British redhead (we love you, Prince Harry), “Thinking Out Loud” crooner Ed Sheeran later this month.

It’s kind of an unusual pairing, but they’re both musicians who like Taylor Swift so we guess it works. The pair delivered the news on social media this morning, including a poster promoting the event as “a cute and badass show”. Can you guess which celeb fits which description?

Considering Ruby Rose was a VJ for MTV Australia back when her fan base was limited to locals with subscription TV access, we think she’ll nail this role which takes place in Milan on October 25.

Kate Upton as You’ve Never Seen Her Before on W Korea (Forum Buzz)

We’re so used to seeing Kate Upton vamp it up on the likes of Vogue Italia and even U.S. Vogue gave her a makeover to remember, but now it’s W Korea‘s turn to profile the 23-year-old American beauty. Our forums have been pretty excited about the Korean edition of W, especially after Lara Stone‘s jaw-dropping cover for September. Still riding a wave of success, the magazine serves Kate as you’ve never seen her before, captured by Norman Jean Roy. Styled by Anya Ziourova, hair tended to by Bryce Scarlett and with Kate’s makeup applied by Yumi Lee, we’re actually quite amazed by the end result.

Members of our forums were pleasantly surprised with the shoot. “Oh it’s quite nice, probably the best I’ve seen of her so far,” hailed KateTheGreatest the moment the first cover (above) dropped.

“I actually like it! Hmm W Korea seems to be trying more than Vogue Korea,” said a satisfied MON. (more…)
