Jess Hart Stars in Her Own Wet T-Shirt Competition for Rag & Bone’s DIY Project

These days, everyone with an Instagram account knows the secrets to taking a good selfie, and when you make a living from being a massive babe, even a bad selfie is a good one. But these Photoshop-free shots by LA-via-Australia model Jessica Hart take these truths to the next level.

Jess is the latest It-girl to be tapped by Rag & Bone for its ongoing DIY project, following in the footsteps of Miranda Kerr, Poppy Delevigne and Candice Swanepoel. The idea behind the campaign is simple, smart and budget-friendly: Ladies with soaring cool points and wholesome good looks are handed a digital camera, a bag of Rag & Bone clothing and the brief to interpret the label in her own unique way. Here, fulfilling that brief meant Jess Hart starring in her own white T-shirt competition in the pool of LA’s Roosevelt Hotel.

The photos were taken by Jess’ equally genetically blessed sister Ashley Hart, who was in LA for a job with her sister following a Mambo-clad romp on Venice Beach with Barbara Palvin. Jess told Grazia Daily, “I’m glad I could involve her in the Rag & Bone DIY project and being that we are crazy together, we decided that I should jump in the pool fully clothed. I would never usually do that but with her around I feel like a different person. I really relax and stop taking myself so seriously.”

There’s Now a Petition to Block John Galliano from Teaching at Parsons

There's a Change.org petition circulating to protest John Galliano's new Parsons teaching job. So far just 160 people have signed, but based on the visible responses, many of the signatures come from current The New School students and alumni.

The remarks on the petition include a message to the university: "Anti-Semitic Fashion Designer John Galliano should not teach at the school as it undermines the school's respect for their entire Jewish body."

It is actually a crazy appointment considering The New School's legacy. The University in Exile was a graduate division founded in 1933 as a haven for Jewish academics and writers fleeing the Nazi regime. And soon there'll be an instructor on staff who's famous for saying, "I love Hitler."

Link Buzz: Jennifer Lawrence’s Hair Now Shorter; The J.Crew Collection is Here

  • I'd take any excuse to talk about how Jennifer Lawrence is great because I finally went on a long-overdue Hunger Games binge last week, but the actress just cut her hair and it looks summery and great and she's great, okay? Great. [SBTeen]
     
  • J.Crew's high-end Collection. (Yes, the collection's called Collection. Designed to infuriate fashion writers everywhere.) It's so pretty. Jennifer Lawrence would look great in it. [FabSugar]
     
  • Reed Krakoff is leaving Coach to focus on Reed Krakoff. [WWD]
     
  • I kind of love blackheads (when I was a kid, I pretended mine were freckles) but since you're probably not disgusting like me, here's how to banish them. [BellaSugar]
     
  • Anna Wintour hired one of her political fundraising buddies as the new Vogue Communications Director because I already have a job. [Fashionologie]
     
  • Beyonce's trying to prevent the publication of unflattering images of herself, so she's banning professional photographers from her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Next she'll be confisticating audience cell phones. So un-American. THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY, BEYONCE. [Earsucker]

Lena Dunham + Saint Laurent = Great

Probably some of you might object to what I'm about to say, but Lena Dunham looks fantastic in this Saint Laurent gold tulle halter dress. She's styled with what appears to be the same thin spiky belt shown on the Fall 2013 runway and T-strap black heels, also by the label. The hard whimsy really suits her and pairs particularly well with her storybook tattoos. I will voice my objection to her choice of shoes, both visually (looks kinda lame to me) and on principle (H2T Saint Laurent is what I wear only in my worst nightmares, as I get torn to pieces by fanged monster worms.)

Gwyneth Paltrow: Why is the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ Also the Most Hated?

Today, People magazine named Gwyneth Paltrow the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for 2013 and SURPRISE,  the actress and lifestyle guru also topped Star's list of "World's Most Hated Celebrities," which was released this week. What a repulsive society we live in. 

Paltrow has long been polarizing: I find that people either really admire her — consider her a role model, even — or despise her. I have advocated for the latter position pretty religiously. Just a couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about my intense dislike of the Hollywood icon, picking her apart for something that now seems pretty trivial (the fact that she can't say anything without plugging a brand).

I'm not saying that Paltrow's not a weird lizard person, but I do think we should probably all cut the vitriol. Our fierce antagonism for her on one hand, excessive admiration on the other says more about our own problems — our need to build up idols just to tear them down — than about the actress and her supposed flaws. 

It's not surprising, too, that it's the world's most beautiful woman who's also the most hated. It's stupidly easy to hate women, even women do it. Blame societal misogyny. Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, one of America's most celebrated pop stars; horrifying photographs of the damage he did to her were all over the Internet, but still he came in only at number 20 on Star's list. In part, we can attribute that to Paltrow's greater fame, but only in part. What has she done wrong? Like really wrong? Nothing. She's just a very successful, very attractive woman who cares about her kids, likes to cook and has a good perspective on her marriage. Yes, she is absurdly rich and completely out of touch with most of our realities, but okay: let's just not look to her for guidance, simple. I'm taking a vow of Gwyneth non-hatred. You should too.
