For a while there, we kind of thought Abbey Lee Kershaw had fallen off the face of the earth. We weren’t hearing about the doe-eyed model and she wasn’t gracing glossy magazine spreads. Then she popped up on our screens for the Max Max: Fury Road trailer alongside fellow models Megan Gale and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, making us think a fledged acting career could be on the cards.

Now the blond babe has been spotted at the closing night of the Melbourne International Film Festival, strutting her always-grungy look on the red carpet for the Australian premiere of Felony. The 2004 Girlfriend Model Search winner showed off her belly button ring in a high-waisted pant and crop combo teamed with a black biker jacket and shiny leather boots.

Add to the outfit a cross necklace, beaded bag, messy hair and edgy makeup, and it’s apparent our girl is back in full swing. It might be to cement her acting career, but we’re not complaining. It’s good to have you back, Abbey Lee, no matter the reason.

Kookaï Taps 3 Leading Models for Its Spring 2014 Campaign

Kookaï has tapped three of Australia’s most renowned supermodels for its Spring 2014 campaign dubbed Tropéziens. The beautiful Alexandra Agoston, Sports Illustrated model Pania Rose and blond bombshell Elyse Taylor all grace the holiday-inspired shoot, based in Saint-Tropez.

The striking outfits pop against the beautiful backdrop of lush beaches, colourful blooms, dreamy sun beds and sailboats, with the three leggy babes all dressed head-to-toe in the Australian retailer’s extensive spring range.

Think tropical prints and nautical-inspired stripes splashed on flirty A-line cuts, jumpsuits and resort-style pants, paired with crisp white crops, crochet bralettes and ripped boyfriend jeans.

Meet THE ICONIC’s Stylish Icons of Fashion

Like online shopping wasn’t addictive enough. Online retailer THE ICONIC will be wooing us this spring with three “Icons of Fashion,” including former Home and Away starlet Samara Weaving, English singer-songwriter Louisa Rose Allen (aka Foxes) and street style star Julia Sarr-Jamois.

The stylish babes will each be assigned a hero brand to represent. Samara has the pleasure of rocking vintage-inspired, festival-appropriate looks from Tigerlily (which totally matches the blond babe’s personal boho style), Foxes will don the modern femininity of Cameo and Julia will exude casual-cool in River Island.

“We see these collaborations as a great way to showcase the trends and brands making an impact right now by working with interesting tastemakers from around the world,” Managing Director and Co-Founder of THE ICONIC, Adam Jacobs said in a news release.

The campaign will continue to roll out over the next couple of months, with the girls lending their personal flair to the collections as the season moves forward. To read more on the announcement, head over to The ICONIC’s blog.

Claudia Schiffer Looks Creepy on Harper’s Bazaar Spain’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Harper’s Bazaar Spain is always good for a surprise when it comes to covers. Very often they are unexpected, creative, artsy and different. For the September 2014 issue starring Claudia Schiffer, however, the publication produced a cover that is just flat-out frightening and not very flattering.

The image is from the editorial Carine Roitfeld styled, which was published in all international editions of Harper’s Bazaar. And maybe that’s the problem here. Quite possibly, Harper’s Bazaar Spain struggles when not using its own creative team. While Claudia’s shot (photographed by Sebastian Faena) didn’t stand out so negatively within the whole editorial, it’s arguably not a cover-worthy image.  

So, what did our forum members have to say about the cover? Nothing positive.

“Terrible” (Suhzie) and “disastrous” (la veronika) were some of the adjectives being used.

“Looks like a bad Herbal Essences/Shampoo ad! Only the clothes are good…..” commented miguelalmeida.

“It scared me!” admitted GlamorousBoy.

For the 50th issue, the mag surely would have created something much more striking and pleasant to look at, had it been up to the team of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. So, who is to blame for this mess? Benn98 knows the answer: “Ugh! This is all Carine Roitfeld’s doing.” Scapegoat found.

Vogue’s September 2014 Pull-Out Cover Met with Sheer Disappointment (Forum Buzz)

When the image of Vogue‘s September cover leaked on Friday, there was a general feeling of approval over the image. Finally, U.S. Vogue tapped actual models instead of another recycled blond starlet as the publication is accustomed to doing for its biggest issue of the year. The main cover features Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls and Cara Delevingne, but today we have a look at the six other models on the issue’s pull-out cover. Sadly, our forum members were not so enthusiastic about the additional girls.

The extra models include (from left) Arizona Muse, Edie CampbellImaan Hammam, Fei Fei SunVanessa Axente and Andreea Diaconu. Besides the egregious use of Photoshop (will someone explain what happened to Joan, Fei Fei, Karlie, Cara and Imaan’s arms?), this casting left almost everyone thoroughly unimpressed. 

They really are scraping the bottom of the barrel here,” Tinsley V wrote.

The shot evoked quite a specific image for t-rex: “It looks like a pasty conga line. Terrible.” At least conga lines are fun?

Gabriel29 was mostly dissatisfied with the casting: “I don’t know if it’s the lighting, but this cover just has zero excitement or diversity. Just compare the September 2004 cover where each model was special, unique, and stood out! The 2014 girls look like filler runway models in comparison.”

To tigerrouge, the cover seemed a little out-of-season: “Maybe I’ll feel different once I have this issue in my hands, but I’m bored by this already. I don’t get any feel of autumn from it, and while it’s nice to see models on the front – if only for a change – I’m not that interested in the actual shot. I’d have been more impressed if this had been the choice for March, there’s a sense of light in the image that I associate more with those months.” This seems to be a symptom plenty of magazines have been suffering from. Vanity Fair‘s September issue cover is emblazoned with ribbon lettering, evoking more of a holiday feel, and Emma Stone‘s May 2014 Vogue cover looked more appropriate for October. 

As Royal-Galliano put it, the cover is “an example of how a model cover doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better than a celeb one.” Touché.

Let us know what you think of Vogue‘s foldout in the comments, and join the discussion in our forums.

Kelly Osbourne Teams with HSN to Release New Collection This Fall

Back in June, Kelly Osbourne took to Instagram to show off her brand new skull tattoo. In typewriter-style lettering, the ink reads “Stories…” We weren’t sure what it meant back then, but now we have an idea of exactly which “Stories…” Ms. Osbourne was talking about. The E! News presenter is launching a collection in partnership with HSN this fall called Stories…By Kelly Osbourne.

The 13-piece range has already gained some fans from the celeb setWWD notes that Taylor Swift and Ciara have already put in orders for a few items. And looking at the lineup, we can’t blame them. Besides a very appealing polka dot jumpsuit and a plaid dress with floral border detailing down the front to accentuate curves, you’ll find T-shirts and a sweatshirt decorated with a dripping, spray-painted rose graphic (a play on the “English Rose” motif). Also, very cool-looking black and navy blue colorblocked blazers as well as a cropped moto jacket. The line combines Kelly’s ladylike sensibilities with a punk rock edge — for women of many sizes. She pushed to have the range go up to a size 24, and reinforced many of her pieces with tummy-control technology.

This collection is only just the start of what’s to come for Kelly. She mentions that she’s dubbed this collection “Chapter One,” pointing to the possibility for future ranges. In fact, Kelly is working on a holiday collection for HSN with a “hoe hoe hoe” (har har) theme. 

In addition to HSN, the collection will be available on Bluefly.com with prices ranging from $55 to $170. Stories…By Kelly Osbourne is due to launch September 25.

Think you’ll be picking anything up?
