Have you met the most tech-savvy infant alive? First she took Instagram by storm. And now PR queen Roxy Jacenko‘s 3-year-old daughter, Pixie Curtis, has started up a Facebook account. The pint-sized redhead had already raked in more than 530 likes, even though she joined the social media platform just days ago. (more…)
We’re back! After a summer vacation and a sudden decision to redecorate and rearrange the organization of a hefty magazine collection, we can now resume our weekly Fashion Flashback Series. While transporting some copies of Vogue Paris, we came across the September 2006 edition with its multi-girl concept and a foiled gold masthead for dramatic effect.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a scan that does the cover justice (ours wouldn’t pick up the gold fonts). Therefore, only those who have the issue at hand truly know just how beautiful the cover really is. Although, who’s concerned about the colors and text placement, when we have the likes of Jessica Stam, Snejana Onopka, Sasha Pivovarova and Gemma Ward on the cover, shot by Craig McDean and all decked out in Chanel?
It seems McDean shot the three main fashion stories for the issue, too. As if the four cover stars weren’t enough already, the issue is full of model spreads. Carine Roitfeld and McDean worked with Carmen Kass, Iselin Steiro, Raquel Zimmermann, Natasha Poly, Tasha Gilbert, Anja Rubik, Angela Lindvall, Missy Rayder and many more faces for the issue. Talk about nailing a September issue full of surprises!

Stay tuned for next week’s Fashion Flashback!
Are you ready for Alexander Wang to drop his H&M collab? So are we. Previews of what to expect from one of the season’s biggest collaborations have slowly been trickling out (Rihanna was spied wearing an ensemble from the range). Now, ELLE‘s got a few looks from the line published in its October personal style issue, fronted by teen music sensation Lorde.
While you’ll have to wait until September 16 (in select cities) to get your hands on the issue and November 6 to buy Alexander Wang x H&M, this sneak peek is enough to get you even more excited for what’s to come. In the ELLE spread, Wang himself poses with Hanne Gaby Odiele, showcasing the range’s athletic-inspired wares.

New York Fashion Week is a zoo. Anyone who has been will tell you that much. In addition to editors, buyers, bloggers and assorted members of the press, there are plenty of IRL housewives (not the ones you see on Bravo) and industry insider hopefuls who attend…or just hang outside Lincoln Center in hopes of being snapped by a street style photographer.
While you may expect these fashion enthusiasts to be knowledgeable about actual fashion, the sad (and in this case, hilarious) truth is that they’re sometimes not. Last year, Jimmy Kimmel Live! hit the streets to see if the show could get people to comment on made-up fashion designers, trends and events — and plenty of people took the bait. It was so popular, that the late night talk show did it again. Peep the video below to see what Fashion Week goers had to say about the collections from designers like Betsy Ross (the woman who designed the American flag), Phil Robertson (of Ducky Dynasty fame) and Bartles & Jaymes (the guys who make wine coolers).
Besides being hilarious, this video proves once again that it’s really easy to bullshit when you’re talking about fashion.
This Fashion Week has been all about instant gratification. Several brands are making pieces from their collections available for purchase straight off the runway and Rodarte‘s the latest label to join the party. Creative directors Kate and Laura Mulleavy had joined forces with Oliver Peoples on a range of sunglasses, which you’ve already seen on the catwalk when Rodarte showed its Spring 2015 collection this week. And you won’t have to wait until February to get your hands on them. If you’re in New York or Los Angeles, you can pop into an Oliver Peoples boutique and pick some up for yourself today.
But don’t get too excited – only 100 of the shades were made, so if you like ‘em, we suggest you hightail it over to that store and scoop ‘em up. But make sure you come with the coins, because the five-colorway sunglasses will set you back $425.
She already stunned wearing Versace Atelier at Fashion Rocks on Tuesday night during #NYFW and now Jennifer Lopez wows on U.K. ELLE‘s October cover, wearing a little black Versace number from the Fall 2014 collection. The 45-year-old singer was shot by Txema Yeste in Paris looking extremely glamorous, and our forum members are loving it!
It’s no wonder everyone’s in love with ELLE‘s latest cover. What’s not to love? “It’s cliche to say she can’t take a bad picture.. But I can’t think of any other celebrity that’s as photogenic as she is,” raved A.D.C.
SallyAlbright responded, “I know! It’s actually ridiculous at this point. She just keeps getting more beautiful and more photogenic.”
“I agree, she’s just beautiful. She always photographs so well. It’s nice to see ELLE try something glamorous for once,” echoed honeycombchild.
“Good to see the magazine back to producing something that resembles a traditional cover. Now, if only it could stop trying to make its page design resemble the Internet in some unreadable way, then I’d also be happier with everything else,” added tigerrouge.
Although it appears not everyone is on board. “Gorgeous! My only gripe is that I sort of wish there would be a little tug of a smile on her lips for that added sexiness, but maybe that’s just me…?” questioned ohmycolin.
“She is one of the most beautiful women in the world….and this is so plain. It’s painful. ELLE looks like a cliche Teen-zine nowadays,” posted an uninterested Kite.
The glamour doesn’t stop with the cover shot. J. Lo also posed for a series of images inside the magazine. Check them out and join the discussion inside the thread here.
