Victoria’s Brittany Beattie, the same “truck driver” who walked Jean Paul Gaultier‘s Paris runway, has beaten Lucy Markovic in tonight’s finale, based on their last shoot of the competition with ELLE Australia magazine. (more…)

Ruby Rose is just getting warmed up in her quest for world domination. The gender-fluid breakout star of Orange Is The New Black set hearts ablaze with her role as Stella Carlin in the latest series of the Netflix prison drama, and created nothing short of a cultural phenomenon with just one wink.

Her winning streak could continue on the big screen, with the Aussie beauty revealing she is in talks to appear in an upcoming film. Connecting the dots from previous interviews, could she be hinting at the The Fast and the Furious franchise? 

Ruby dished to OK! magazine that the last audition she had before landing her role in OITNB was for the Furious 7. But, unfortunately, she was overlooked for the role due to her likeness to a certain Canadian, bad-boy pop star who happens to be on Australian shores at the moment. She revealed, “They didn’t want me because one of the main guys said I looked like Justin Bieber!”  (more…)

Lucy Markovic might come across as the token sweet girl on Australia’s Next Top Model, but her behaviour on the show has reduced a former contest to tears.

Noted resilient chick Alex Sinadinovic, who just missed out on the final two and went home last week, tells theFashionSpot that her lowlight of the entire experience was when Lucy disregarded her friendship with fellow contestant Phoebe Deskovic. (more…)

Romee Strijd and Taylor Hill Are Juicy Couture’s Fall Campaign Girls (Forum Buzz)

Juicy Couture struck gold with its Spring 2015 advertising campaign, staying true to the brand aesthetic with amazing results. This season, however, the Los Angeles-based line started from scratch in an attempt to revitalize its campaigns. Out goes Edita Vilkeviciute in favor of Taylor Hill and Romee Strijd, who pose before a seamless white background for photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott with styling from Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele. Sounds like a perfect fit for Juicy, right?

Juicy Couture Fall 2015 Ad Campaign by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott


Think again, as the majority of our forum members aren’t feeling it. “It looks too cheap to be M&M. What was wrong with I&V? I loved their campaigns,” expressed GivenchyHomme.

“A waste of Romee, if you ask me. It looks very teeny. M&M aren’t my favourite but this doesn’t look like their work,” complained Benn98 soon after.

Also quick to share his disappointment was MON: “They went from Edita to this. This looks like a Moschino ad campaign. I just can’t stop seeing the Moschino logo working here. This will look perfect for Teen Vogue, but out of place beside other mainline campaigns. Inez & Vinoodh was perfect for them. They made the brand look fun.”

“Gosh this looks so cheap,” Nomar declared, sharing his disapproval of the campaign.

But not everyone was so underwhelmed. “Love it. Of course, there is nothing even remotely new, but I’m so sick of brands pretending to be things they’re not (at ALL), and this is very refreshing, honestly. Even if the facial expressions are the same in every photo. Just a bit of gloss and tacky, boring clothes,” said JeanAvril.

You have to hand it to Juicy Couture for sticking to what it knows best. Check out the rest of the campaign and voice your sentiments here
