Lara Bingle has taken a minute out of her globe-trotting life and returned to her home ground of Sydney, launching her basics collection dubbed "The One" in Cotton On's George Street store. Bloggers and stylists were invited to chat one-on-one with Lara to celebrate the release of the range that's just hit stores across Australia and online.
The basics collection aims to be exactly that, with a range of T-shirts and tanks that stop the endless search for the perfect tee. There's a cut and colour for every girl, including scoopnecks, crewnecks and V-necks in slub cotton along with long sleeves, short sleeves and no sleeves in every colour of the rainbow.
The vast assortment will definitely have you covered, and with Lara's effortless style on the collection's side, we can't see ourselves looking down any other avenue for the wardrobe staple. Did we mention the prices range from just 12.95 to 19.95?
With Cotton On stockists all around the country and online, it's never been so easy to complete your look. Lara's basics will team effortlessly with a leather skirt, ripped boyfriend jeans and, well, pretty much anything.
Mila Kunis has landed yet another cover of W magazine. This is the star's second time fronting the American publication, previously covering the March 2011 cover by Craig McDean. This time around, we see the future Mrs. Kutcher lensed by Michael Thompson, conveying the essence of the 60s, while wearing an embellished dress from Gucci's Fall 2014 collection.

Our forum members didn't believe the cover was genuine at first. "The text makes it look almost fan made…?" questioned honeycombchild.
Even after it was confirmed the cover was genuine, forum member t-rex wasn't convinced: "Still looks fake. Please let the text and font be a one-time mistake…And having Mila Kunis shot as a Sixties girl is not fresh…"
Andrea27 shared their sentiments and posted, "Looks like the cover is made by a fan in Paint, especially this font of text in the right angle. And she doesn't look like herself, something is strange with her nose. Too bad, I really like Mila."
"This just seems lazy to me. The 60s thing has been done to death. Stylists really need to let it go," wrote HodanChloe.
On the other hand, kokobombon seemed to like the cover: "I like the 60s vibe. I'd guess that even though the movie got pushed back, the mag thought it would still be 'interesting' because of her pregnancy and engagement? I mean, she wouldn't be the first actress to be on a cover just because of that…"
Await the fashion stories, see Mila's pictures from inside the issue and join the discussion all inside the thread here.
She’s a firm favorite of the American designer and now Karlie Kloss has landed Donna Karan‘s Fall 2014 advertising campaign. Kloss is photographed by Steven Sebring for a series of photos, which have also been manipulated into a motion video to coincide with the print fashion spots. The video debuted on Karan’s site earlier today and has already been posted on our forums here. After fronting multiple Donna Karan campaigns, this time around we see Karlie being captured up against a set of mirrors set in a dark atmosphere, all while complementing Karan’s collection of dresses, which are showcased to perfection.

Members of our forums are ecstatic over the campaign. “This is pretty damn fierce. That shot of Karlie in the red dippin’ it low…Yasss,” commented an enthusiastic LagerfeldBoy.
“Karlie is the perfect choice for this concept. Very interesting campaign!” enthused an upbeat Style Savvy.
Forum member littlekiki shared the same positive attitude and wrote, “I’m in love with these!”
ALAUU was also onboard with the campaign images: “Very glam concept. I like it.”

Kendall Jenner's meteoric rise in the fashion world has showed no signs of slowing since she took the runways last season for Givenchy, Giles, Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Since then, the 18-year-old reality star has found herself pictured in Vogue Paris and Interview, scored a cover of Love magazine and a spot in Givenchy's Fall 2014 campaign. Wether you think she actually looks like a high fashion model or not, Jenner's certainly racking up the credentials to fit the bill.

And today, Jenner hit another milestone in her fashion career. The buzzy model was cast for Chanel's haute couture show, clad in a tweed off-the-shoulder floor-sweeping frock complete with fringe, feathers and jewels with a pillbox topper and bedazzled lace-up sandals to match. Jenner shared a backstage image to her Instagram this morning, posing alongside another model with the caption, "birdies backstage #ChanelCouture."
How interesting to see designers, a few of which were previously wary of the Kardashian/Jenner name using young Kendall so much and in such high-profile shows. She's no Kate or Cara, but one thing Jenner definitely brings to any design house she works with is plenty of buzz. Perhaps the world is still stunned and intrigued by her success so far and are waiting to see how far she can take it. If the past few months of her career are any indication, I wager she'll be riding this fashion train for a lot longer than we thought she would.

Melbourne blogger and stylist Jess Dempsey of What Would Karl Do has collaborated with fine jeweller Claire Aristides and Australian accessories destination The Dark Horse to create a precious range of baby jewellery. The delicate pieces are made from sterling silver, 9ct gold and diamonds to make up a six-piece capsule collection of teeny tiny bracelets for the little ones.
As a mother of two, the exclusive capsule collection is very close to Dempsey's heart. "I received special jewellery pieces from when I was born and through the years as I grew up," Dempsey wrote on her blog. "Today, they are special treasures that are a part of me and I can’t wait to share them with my children."

Through this special collaboration, Dempsey is happily able to carry on this tradition. "It is actually remarkable timing because I was pregnant when Claire and The Dark Horse approached me, and as a result the heart bracelet was my first gift to my new baby boy," she says. "Each piece is special because it will become a keepsake you will have forever after they've grown out of it."
The mini collection comprising of tiny hearts, miniature crosses and personalised letters is the perfect gift at baby showers, christenings and birthdays. Each piece is made to order and available exclusively at The Dark Horse.

Now that the manicure art craze seems to be dying down, people have to find something else about their nails to obsess over. In Asia, a new trend says that you can learn all about people's personalities, just by looking at the shape of their nails.
Gamme.com.tw originally published a post outlining what each nail shape means about your personality in Chinese, and RocketNews24 got an English translation to create the infographic you see above. So, here's the rundown.
If you've got long nail beds, you're "a mild-tempered romanticist."
If your nails are broad sideways, you're a "short-tempered theorist."
Rounded or egg-shaped, you're a "laid-back pacifist."
Squarish, you're "serious and hard-headed" and "most likely a man."
Triangular, you're a "sensitive genius."
Almond-shaped, you're "faithful and honest."
Sword-shaped, you're an "ambitious idealist."
Whether the chart is actually accurate is another story. It asserts that if you have squarish nails you're "most likely a man" who "doesn't like to give up and has guts." Makes sense, since you know, women don't have squarish nails and are shrinking violets who give up easily, right?
At any rate, at the very least it's a fun way to pass the time and possibly a fun tool to use when scouting potential dates. Oh and remember, beware of square nails on a girl because she's "most likely" a "hard-headed" man, according to this system.
