It seems like forever ago that Jay Lyon was all like, “I really love you, Whit” out the front of Diane Von Furstenberg in New York City, but Whitney Port hasn’t forgotten everything that the Aussie model did for her.

Speaking to Sydney Confidential, Whitney admitted that it’s Jay she has to thank for her love of Australia and her life here when she visits. 

“Honestly, I feel like my connection to Australia began when I started dating Jay Lyon,” she revealed. “He introduced me to so many people out here and I just made some great friends and connections, so I kind of have to thank him for it.” (more…)

Uproar After Naked Models Hired as Fruit Platters Hand-Feed Guests at Sydney Restaurant

It’s not unusual to set up a marketing ploy at a social event, but Sydney’s Cruise Bar, located in Circular Quay, really took it to another level for its relaunch event last night, August 27.

Models were hired to lie naked on long tables with only a selection of fruit covering their bare bodies, and even hand-fed parts of the platter to passengers on board the grand-ship style bar.  (more…)

A Different Kind of Hair Weave: Hair Tapestries Are All the Rage on Instagram

Move over unicorn hair, there’s a new trend in town and it’s got us all reaching for a needle and thread. This weekend, at the FYF Fest in Los Angeles, London-based Bleach Hair Salon set up a booth offering hair tapestries, which have subsequently taken over Instagram, though it’s been around for about a year. The festival-appropriate style is achieved by weaving pieces of string into hair with the help of a loom. You can get the style with extensions or you can weave the yarn directly into your tresses.

Marie Claire credits hairstylist Alex Brownswell with starting the trend, saying he was inspired by Andean tapestry from Argentina. We took a quick look to see if somehow this tradition is linked to some sacred cultural practices and it doesn’t appear to be (although if it is, definitely let us know), so it seems this new festival trend isn’t haunted by the spectre of cultural appropriation. So ladies, weave away. (Unless you’re Kathie Lee Gifford and hair tapestries aren’t your cup of tea.)

Check out some examples of hair tapestries below. (more…)

Daria Strokous Gives Numéro Its Best Black and White Cover to Date (Forum Buzz)

The French edition of Numéro solidifies its return to form with the release of the September cover. Out is Karl Lagerfeld, who has shot Numéro‘s big March and September covers since forever, and in comes photographer Nathaniel Goldberg like a breath of fresh air. Goldberg captured model Daria Strokous on location in the streets of Paris at night wearing Chanel Haute Couture. The overall look of the image may still resemble Lagerfeld’s signature black and white aesthetic but we’re just loving Numero‘s elegant new offering.

“Sublime! I love this cover so much,” forum member fluxxx enthused soon after.

“So striking! It’ll be quite a noticeable competitor on the newsstand,” Aedlacir said.

“Gorgeous cover! Goldberg’s use of lights and darks works beautifully here in black & white,” commended justaguy.

If you’re a fan of this cover then you’ll be delighted with Daria’s accompanying cover story. Check it out and preview the rest of Numéro’s September issue here.

The world has officially gone pumpkin spice crazy. Peeps recently announced it was releasing an autumnal-flavored version of its famous marshmallow snacks and Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats unveiled a limited-edition pumpkin spice cereal. Now, M&M’s is getting in on the fun with the release of pumpkin spice latte-flavored M&M’s. 

According to E!, M&M’s has dropped pumpkin spice versions of the candy before, but this one seems to also be latte flavored, so we’re expecting a lot of chocolatey, coffee pumpkin goodness. Don’t get us wrong  – these new M&M’s sound insanely delicious. Still, we can’t help but feel a little pumpkin spiced-out. So many food and drink companies have hopped onto the pumpkin spice train that it’s getting hard to keep up. Also, a little redundant. But hey, folks love artificial pumpkin and nutmeg flavors, so why not give the people what they want?

Pumpkin spice is here to stay – no matter how much fatigue we might have. So for those of you who can’t get enough of the flavor, below are some pumpkin spice products you can add to your pantry this fall. (more…)
