When stylist Jules Sebastian stepped out for the Sydney premiere of Cinderella earlier this year, all eyes were on her $13,500 custom-made gown. Covered with 25 messages of kindness courtesy of Disney’s social media followers, it was truly something else. Now you can wear the very same piece, for whatever occasion it might turn out to be appropriate for, straight off Jules’ back. That’s right, it’s up for auction.

The one-of-a-kind piece by One Day Bridal is made from blue moda and natural silk organza, and finished with natural satin ribbon and gold thread hand embroidery with words of wisdom like, “Be your own kind of beautiful” and “Don’t hurt. Live gently. Be kind.”

The bidding begins at $500, which isn’t bad considering the garment is worth 27 times that amount. Plus, the money will go straight to The Walt Disney Company Australia’s trusted charity partner, Big Brothers and Sisters Australia. (more…)

Skinny Jeans Cause Woman to Collapse and Go To Hospital

Beauty is pain, my dears, but sometimes looking good just isn’t worth it. Just ask the 35-year-old Australian woman who collapsed after squatting in a pair of skinnies, and ended up in hospital for four days.

Helping relatives move to their new home, The West Australian reports that the Adelaide woman spent the day squatting and cleaning out cupboard in her skinny jeans. As she was walking home through a park later that night, her feet became week and she fell, crawled to the side of the road, and hailed a taxi to take her to hospital.

Medical staff cut the jeans off her as they were unable to remove them any other way, finding out that the prolonged squatting had cut off the blood supply to her calves and made them swell. She also lost feeling in her lower legs as a result, which led to damaged muscle and nerve fibres.

The woman revealed that she felt her jeans getting tighter and tighter as the day went on. She was put on an intravenous drip in hospital, and it took up to four days for her to be able to walk again. (more…)

The Jeremy Scott Movie Trailer Is Here

Jeremy Scott is the people’s designer. Or at least, according to the title of his docu-film hitting theaters he is. The trailer for Jeremy Scott: the People’s Designer has hit the Internet and we finally get to see a bit of the anticipated film that follows the designer as he creates work for both his namesake brand and the Moschino label.

Naturally, the film is chock-full of testimonials from Scott’s crew of celebrity fans, including Katy Perry, A$AP Rocky, Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus. The movie covers Scott’s journey from being the weird kid from Kansas City with runway dreams to one of the top designers in the industry today. 

“He knows who he is, first and foremost and his clothes have a narrative, his clothes have their own story,” Perry said of her friend, who also created the eye-popping looks for her Superbowl halftime performance earlier this year. Jeremy Scott: the People’s Designer is set to hit theaters September 18, smack-dab in the middle of fashion month. How appropriate.

Check out the trailer in the video above.

Forum members were full of praise from the get-go. “Absolutely love this! Seems to be influenced by some older shots of Diana Ross but it’s still quite refreshing even for Mert and Marcus,” praised GERGIN.

“Gorgeous, love the casual styling for the cover, love her face and the accompanying photos are stunning,” Miss Dalloway added.

Also full of enthusiasm was Luxx: “This is So. Damn. Good. Taraji has been working in Hollywood since the 90s so it is great to see her get her moment.”

HeatherAnne loved the end result also, announcing, “Love the womanly sensuality that has been missing in fashion since Roitfeld left. Not that Carine invented it, but she definitely propelled it and there’s been a lack of it in the industry since her outing at Vogue Paris.”

“This looks beautiful! I’m not familiar with Taraji but she’s killing it here!” raved Nepenthes.

JoCaderone even went so far as to scream, “BEST COVER this year for me! BOW DOWN to the QUEEN COOKIE.”

Gigi and Bella Hadid Look ‘Hooker Chic’ on V Magazine’s Fall Preview Cover (Forum Buzz)

Over the past week, V Magazine has been teasing us with previews and tidbits from its upcoming issue and now the wait is over as the magazine unveils its Fall Preview 2015 issue, featuring Gigi Hadid and her sister Bella as smoldering cover girls. Captured by Steven Klein, the siblings vamp it up wearing furs, lingerie and skyscraper heels as they battle it out while posing in front of a flashy automobile. Impressed?

Our forum members weren’t exactly jumping for joy. “Can’t even recognize Gigi on the cover. What an odd shot to be on the cover,” exclaimed jeffandtheworld the moment the cover surfaced.

“That makeup is so harsh. What even? They look like drag queens and Bella’s bulge does not help the situation at all. And Gigi’s hair/wig looks tired,” assessed an uninspired MON.

Wolkfolk was quick to show his disapproval, too, writing, “I feel a bit uncomfortable looking at these shots. I feel like they are and look too young for the whole hooker-chic look.”

Also underwhelmed was KissMiss: “Gosh, Steven used to be a good photographer… his recent work looks very tacky…”

“I don’t mind the idea of it but I don’t think it works well as a cover shot. The composition is kind of awkward,” posted MyNameIs, as we just started coming around to the idea.

“I actually love this!” enthused Oxymore, sharing an entirely different opinion on the thread.

Benn98 agreed and replied, “Me too, it’s tawdry and messy, but most of all, it’s models! Gigi looks unrecognizable with the aggressive makeup and Bella’s crotch looks a bit suspect on the cover, but this is quite a surprise.”
