Let’s all take a moment to bow down to Queen Sylvia Jeffreys, who has bitten back at a publication for calling her visible choice of underwear a “wardrobe malfunction”.

Pointing the finger to Daily Mail Australia, the Today host took to Twitter to explain her outfit choice for The Australian Women’s Weekly and OCRF High Tea at Centennial Parklands Dining on August 25.

“Errr whoops! Anything to draw attention to a good cause, I guess. Right @helenmccabe?  #brafail #crazyeyes #10hours,” Sylvia tweeted. (more…)

WATCH: Taylor Swift and Alanis Morissette Slay ‘You Oughta Know’

It seems like Taylor Swift has ran out of celebrities from her own generation to hit up the “1989” stage, so she called upon alternative rock singer Alanis Morissette to join the circus that is Swifty’s 2015 tour.

Alanis didn’t just do a curtsy before shimmying off stage like some of the other models and actresses, though, instead she graced us with her smash 1995 hit “You Oughta Know” at LA’s Staples Center on Monday night.

Heck, Taylor even joined in for some serious generational poetry. OK, she mostly danced around in her leather-clad ensemble while Alanis did the hard yards that made the tune a smash hit 20 years ago. 

“Alanis singing ‘You Oughta Know’ last night was something I’ll never forget. I loooove her,” Taylor wrote on Instagram. ICYMI, the night was full of highlights with Ellen DeGeneres totally showing Taylor up in a copycat 1989 ensemble. #NailedIt.


Ellen Degeneres, the pop princess.

Model of the Moment Caroline Trentini Covers Vogue Japan, Wearing a ‘Hideous’ Dior Jumpsuit (Forum Buzz)

She’s the model of the moment, fronting both the Versace and Prabal Gurung fall campaigns and now, Caroline Trentini turns up on the cover of Vogue Japan. Like clockwork, the magazine releases its issue before anyone else and it’s almost hard to believe we’re discussing October already (because September issues are soo last month). Styled by Anna Dello Russo, Caroline models a rather hideous Christian Dior jumpsuit, but like a pro, successfully manages to do it justice before the lens of Giampaolo Sgura.

Members of our forums began to discuss the cover right away. “Worst Vogue Japan I’ve ever seen,” DutchHomme declared the minute the cover broke, unwilling to get us off on a high note.

“I’m just ready for this season to be over so that these hideous Dior jumpsuits can go away,” shared an unimpressed orchidee.

Also unimpressed was littlekiki, announcing, “Sgura’s work always disappoints me.”

“Dislike the jumpsuit and there’s too much text (as always for me), but other than that it’s quite good,” shared KateTheGreatest as opinions started to change.

TeeVanity approved: “You know what this actually works maybe if it was a different model it wouldn’t work but Caroline pulls it off, good job.”

In agreement was Style Savvy. “Caroline makes that awful Dior jumpsuit work. Great color scheme,” he applauded.

“Yes! Finally another fun and energetic cover from VJ,” MDNA admired.

The accompanying cover story is a far cry from the energetic cover image. Check it out and join the conversation here.

Primark Set to Open Its First Store in America Next Month


Cuties off duty! Prices from €10 #Primark #fashion #HQ

Love it or loathe it, U.K.-based fast fashion retailer Primark isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, it’s set to get much bigger as it makes its American debut this coming September. In the U.K., it’s loved by those who are looking to snap up an on-trend bargain without committing to a hefty price tag, despite knowing that it’s probably only going to last a couple of washes before getting chucked into the bin.

Nevertheless, fast fashion customers just can’t get enough of Primark — and that’s even after hearing the stories about the unethical conditions for its factory workers and general bad practices for the environment. The store is now present in nine markets with Italy being the most recent addition.

The first U.S. store will be opening in Boston where the cash-strapped student population won’t be able to resist a Primark bargain. The company plans to open eight more locations across the Northeast by autumn.

Boasting full outfit steals for under £50 in the U.K., it’s only a matter of time before Primark catches on stateside because, let’s admit it, sometimes you just can’t resist a bargain.

Pop Rapper Brooke Candy Gets Her Very Own MAC Cosmetics Collection

MAC’s latest collaborator is pop rapper Brooke Candy, who is bringing a small makeup collection to get you ready for fall. The Nicola Formichetti style muse teamed up with the cosmetics giant on two in-your-face lipstick shades, Mind Control, a bright cherry red, and Which Witch, a dark vampy hue – both of which you can top off with the boot black liquid eyeliner included in the range. 

The shades are the perfect complement to Candy’s ever-changing style, which she described to i-D as “White-Trash-West Virginia-Chloe-Sevigny-in-Gummo with Liberace-Excess-Bedazzled-Jumpsuits.” Surely, a red or very dark lipstick could fit into such a, uh, unique aesthetic. The collection is said to be inspired by the forces of good and evil, though we think the collection skews a bit more bad girl than perfect angel. 

But even if your style isn’t as extreme as Candy’s, you can still get on board at least with Mind Control – after all, who doesn’t look good in a classic red lip?

Brooke Candy’s collection for MAC is due to hit the MAC website August 27.
