With Alexander Wang’s final Balenciaga collection showing at Paris Fashion just last week, we knew there would be an announcement coming soon. Today, the brand announced it’s new artist director, Demna Gvasalia.
The 34-year-old designer attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, at which he earned many awards and recognition from the industry. Gvasalia launched his first collection in 2007 at Tokyo Fashion Week and was later tapped by Maison Martin Margiela to head its women’s collections from 2009 until 2013. He was later appointed senior designer of Louis Vuitton’s women’s ready-to-wear collections before launching his own label, Vetements, at Paris Fashion Week in 2014. Needless to say, his resume is impressive. (more…)
Amidst rumours from the public that the pregnancy announcement was a cry for publicity, due partly to an image of a positive pregnancy test taken from Google, Gabi insisted at the time, “I would never do this for a stunt, that’s a horrible thing to say.” (more…)
Nela Zisser might have a knack for modelling, but the New Zealand babe can also devour a meal like it’s no one’s business. The 23-year-old set out to beat the McDonald’s Happy Meal record set by American competitive eater Matt Stonie, who smashed the feed in only 16 seconds, and captured it all on tape for our viewing pleasure.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has today announced that its 2016 event won’t go down as expected, with major changes in focus and timing enforced to better serve the Australian fashion industry and its global audience.
The highly anticipated event will now centre around resort collections rather than the Spring showcases of previous years, meaning Fashion Week Australia will become the first annual, organised presentation of resort collections.
The decision to become focused on resort collections was made in collaboration with local industry leaders, designers and the NSW Government, and the 2016 schedule will include our biggest fashion names to cement Sydney as a global fashion capital. (more…)
Even with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus involved, we couldn’t hide our dismay over Interview‘s shockingly bad September covers. Now as the title gears up for the release of the October edition, Interview is back on track with its latest unveiling. After her washout U.S. Vogue appearance back in August, Nicole Kidman delivers a stunning black and white portrait cover, shot by Fabien Baron.
You had best believe our forum members were impressed from the onset. “That’s so pretty and peaceful,” praised anlabe32 with Miss Dalloway quickly adding, “Simple, but gorgeous” to the discussion.
“Aah, so much better than last month’s disaster,” approved JessRubik.
“Now THIS is good! It seems like people ditched September and are now making October better,” said TaylorBinque.
Sharing the same sentiments was Wolkfolk: “Definitely puts Vogue‘s August issue to shame. Such a beautiful cover with an even more stunning cover story. Fantastic photography & art direction by Fabien and once again Templer’s styling is perfection. Nicole looks gorgeous, love the emphasis on her amazing legs. Very sensual editorial.”
“Stunning cover, Nicole looks gorgeous and natural. Also, the editorial is amazing,” commented burbuja8910.
“When Fabien and his Interview team are at their best, they create something interesting, beautiful, captivating, that draws me in, even if I never cared for the subject. That’s the power of a visionary and his talented team. And looks like Interview is back on track after that issue,” noted Phuel.
Nicole’s cover story surely is a must-see. Check it out and drop us a comment here.
You’ve probably heard of the Mooncup, a reusable menstruation cup that collects your monthly flow. But what about the Looncup? Recently debuted on Kickstarter, it’s the world’s first ‘smart’ menstrual cup that can actually text you when it’s time to refresh. With technology rapidly evolving, it was bound to happen.

How it works in a nutshell: the Looncup has its own app, which you download to your phone or Apple Watch in order to sync with your cup. Once the cup is inserted, it checks your menstrual cycle via a sensor and alerts you in real time as the cup fills. In other words, never risk overflowing again. It can also help you predict upcoming periods and can monitor the color of your menstruation blood for signs of stress or lack of sleep. (more…)
