Teresa Palmer has scored the leading role in Atomic Monster’s upcoming horror film Lights Out.

Deadline reports that the movie is about a young boy and his estranged sister, who are confronted by an evil thingymajig which only appears when the lights are turned off. Our childhood fear of “lights out” at bedtime is set for a comeback after the release of this film, we’re sure.

The film is based on David Sandberg’s short horror movie of the same name, which went viral. The feature-length film starring Palmer will be directed by Sandberg, with production by Australian horror royalty James Wan beginning today. (more…)

Justin Bieber landed in Sydney this morning, June 29, beliebed to be headed to a five-day Hillsong Church conference at Allphones Arena.

Sydney Confidential reports that Justin is visiting the conference as a “delegate”, and Hillsong are keeping very tight-lipped about the visit out of respect for Justin’s privacy.

“People come from across the world to Sydney each year to attend Hillsong conference,” a spokesman for Hillsong church told Sydney Confidential. “Justin is here — like tens of thousands of others — as a delegate who is seeking to build stronger foundations into his life,” he added.

“He is not participating in the conference in any other capacity,” the spokesman continued, ruling out a potential performance from Biebs. “Out of respect for his privacy we will not be making further comments. The purpose of the conference is to honour God, and our hope for all attending is that their lives are enriched.”

Hailey Baldwin, Justin’s rumoured love interest, also landed in Sydney this morning to promote Topshop’s new Spring 2015 denim line, and is expected to be visiting the Hillsong conference too.

Just over a year ago Justin couldn’t even recall if he’d ever visited Australia, which is an insult on so many levels. Does he not remember the several children who were injured in his cancelled performance for Sunrise, or where his mates Miranda Kerr and Shanina Shaik come from?

Hopefully this trip will be more memorable for young Biebs.

If you are heading to Myer’s upcoming Spring 2015 fashion show, don’t expect to nab a seat beside the department store’s latest ambassador, Rachael Finch. Rather than sitting FROW, she will be strutting down the run way with the likes of Jennifer Hawkins, Kate Peck and Kris Smith, who also represent the department store.

Rachael may have signed on as an ambassador for Myer back in January, but the upcoming show at Carriageworks this August 13 will mark her first time walking in a show for the brand. Designers including Sass & Bide, By Johnny and Alex Perry will be worn by over 50 models, including Rachael. 

Speaking to Sydney Confidential, the 26-year-old shared, “It’s one of the goals I wanted to achieve and something I’ve had on my bucket list.” She added, “Every time I see the show I’m in the audience watching so it will be nice to experience it from a different perspective. And I love to soak up the atmosphere and bounce off the crowd, so it will be a lot of fun.”

We know Rachael is going to kill it on the runway.

Adriana Lima Works Fringe and Hair Extensions on Vogue Mexico (Forum Buzz)

It’s starting to become apparent that Vogue Mexico is stepping up its game with each new issue. Our forums used to complain about the lack of creativity and originality the magazine projected, but there have been signs of improvement over the past few months. Magazine covers can often be static and frigid, but Brazilian model Adriana Lima certainly shows just how it’s done on the July 2015 cover, modeling a dramatic fringed jacket by Balmain as she works the lens for Russell James.

So, it’s unfortunate that the majority of our forum members weren’t feeling it. “There’s so much going on! I don’t know where to look! Her face is barely recognizable. The fringe on that dress is too distracting. The hair/extensions are all over the place. How long is that hair for it to fly like that? Is she referencing Medusa? There’s no focal point in the cover and it’s sad,” ranted MON.

“Who the hell has taken over the typography for Vogue Mexico covers, it looks terrible. I feel like Vogue Mexico is starting to look more and more like Vogue Brazil,” slammed marsnoop2.

“Given how often Russell James photographs Adriana for Victoria’s Secret, it’s kind of shocking that her face ended up so messed up on this cover,” added a surprisingly underwhelmed orchidee.

Also not convinced was Creative: “I think everything she has done in her life as a model looks really cheap… And I have nothing against her at all, but she just can’t produce something sophisticated.”

Bertrando3 agreed, exclaiming, “Her Vogue covers are never working for me and here she looks unrecognizable and the pose/hair/makeup and layout, it’s a big MESS.”

Vogue Mexico took one step forward and four steps back with this one. Ouch! Share your opinion here.
