InStyle Australia, together with Audi and Moët & Chandon, celebrated its 2015 Women of Style awards nominees cocktail party at Sydney CBD’s Georg Jensen last night, March 3. The theme for this year’s awards is the driving force of women, and the attendees’ sophisticated, polished and feminine outfits couldn’t have reflected the concept any better.
Scroll through below to see our favourite looks from the night, plus see the full list of nominees across the eight categories including arts and culture, beauty, business, charity and community, entertainment, environment, fashion and lifestyle. Winners will be announced in May.
Romance Was Born’s Anna Plunkett stepped out in a modest red-and-black patterned midi dress, but added her own personal touch with chunky black ankle boots and a chained clutch. (more…)
One of the most buzzed-about fashion movies, Dior and I, is due out April 10, and we’ve finally got a peek at the highly anticipated documentary’s trailer.
The Frédéric Tcheng-directed film follows Raf Simons as he designs his first couture collection for the iconic French fashion house, a task which he had just eight weeks to fulfill. In the film, we get to see all the frenzied rushing, sewing and snipping in the weeks leading up to the big debut. From getting stuck in an elevator with samples to fitting the models, we get a look at the journey behind Simons’ first, quite beautiful collection. IMDB says that Marion Cotillard, Anna Wintour, Jennifer Lawrence and Sidney Toleadno expected to appear in the film, as does Cathy Horyn, who you will spot within the first 25 seconds of the trailer.
Watch the whole thing above and get psyched for the film, which is just a little over than a month away.
Christophe Lemaire might have exited his post at Hermès, but the designer is still as occupied as ever. As he works on his own brand, he’ll also be raking in a few extra side coins, thanks to his new partnership with Uniqlo. Lemaire is set to release a capsule collection with Uniqlo, due out in the fall.
The range will include options for both men and women and, if Uniqlo’s previous collaborations are any indication, will likely be pretty affordable. “I myself am really looking forward to getting a glimpse of the results of our tie up and am thrilled that we are able to bring it to our customers around the world,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman of parent company Fast Retailing.
We can’t wait to see what Lemaire whips up either.
It’s not easy being a woman these days. When has it ever? We don’t get paid as much as men, the health of our bodies is of no importance to certain Christian companies, plus periods: they really suck. The last thing we need is more disappointing news, so of course, here comes a team of researchers to deliver just that – at least for those of us who are attracted to men.
According to a recent study of 15,000 men from all over the world, researchers found that the average penis is pretty modestly sized. Not great news for those women (and men) who prefer a larger member.
The numbers, please: flaccid, the average fella is 3.6 inches with a girth of 3.7 inches. Erect, it’s 5.16 inches long with a 4.6-inch girth.
So in conclusion: most dudes’ penises aren’t that enormous. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, if anything, it proves just how unrealistic most pornography is. But if you’re the type of guy or gal who likes their eggplant emojis a little bigger, you might want to hit Babeland before hitting Tinder.
Look away Bradley Cooper, because Suki Waterhouse is starring alongside British musician George Le Page in a steamy campaign for Burberry. Waterhouse, who is the current face of Brit Rhythm, marks her seventh campaign for Burberry Beauty in the latest ad for the English brand’s Burberry Kisses lipstick collection for Spring 2015.

In the sexy video shot by Mario Testino in London, the 23-year-old model and Le Page wear the brand’s signature cashmere scarves as Waterhouse coyly teases him with her fire engine red lips grazing his face. The makeup look for the campaign was done by Burberry Make-Up Artistic Consultant Wendy Rowe who used the Military Red shade for the shoot.
The lightweight Burberry Kisses collection features a range of 28 lipsticks designed to give buildable coverage from sheer to opaque with one shade. “The new collection includes our most extensive colour palette to date with a great range of colours to choose from, from wearable nudes to classic reds including our iconic Military Red; the perfect, most universal red which suits all skin tones,” says Rowe. The lipsticks retail for $33 and are available now on Burberry.com and select retailers, but before you shop for your new spring lipstick — check out the video below. (more…)
Kudos to L’Officiel Singapore for landing a handful of the world’s most in-demand models for its spectacular set of new covers. The magazine celebrates eight years in publishing with its March 2015 issue and tapped Steven Klein to photograph Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Guinevere Van Seenus, Liu Wen, Xiao Wen Ju, Jamie Bochert, Crystal Renn and Maria Borges for the celebratory occasion. Shot in black and white to add even more drama, depth and allure to the pictures, the American photographer best known for his provocative aesthetic delivers eight covers for each year the magazine has been in print.
Fierce covers, but we’re reminded of something from last month. “Reminds me of ‘boobs’ in LOVE‘s Spring 2015 issue, but so much better,” called out Koibito, of course referring to the Steven Klein editorial from the Kim Kardashian issue of LOVE.
“Basically ‘boobs’ but without the boobs. Stunning cast!” announced russianelf in agreement.
Nepenthes was full of praise for the content and raved, “Everyone looks so stunning! Love this!”
As was Benn98: “This is so unexpected, all the girls look stunning. Wow at Crystal Renn, she’s killing it.”
“OMFG these are so bloody amazing I can’t even handle!” cried Nomar in excitement.
“Didn’t know L’Officiel Singapore was such a publication that could get these in-demand models!” added a pleasantly surprised littlekiki.
MON was quick to sing the magazine’s praises. “Congrats to L’Officiel Singapore for their 8th year and for being able to cast such huge names. NOW, these are nice portraits but it’s boring. Same old same old Steven Klein,” he shared.
