If you weren’t at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere last night, chances are you were at InStyle‘s 2015 Women of Style Awards instead.
The red carpet was a fashion lover’s paradise, with actresses, models, bloggers, WAGs and more wearing home-grown designers like Aje, Michael Lo Sordo and Zimmermann.
It’s probably one of Australia’s most fashionable nights of the year, and the 2015 event easily exceeded expectation. See all the looks below. (more…)
Magazines seem to have forgotten we’re in some desperate need of sunshine on our summer covers. Vogue Netherlands thankfully heard our cries and delivered an inviting, season-appropriate cover for its newly-unveiled June 2015 issue. Josh Olins captured Julia Bergshoeff in Hawaii appearing as though she’s just returned from a surf session down at the beach, sporting a Mugler swimsuit teamed with a pair of comfy suede trousers from Chanel.
We were all for the cover until something was brought to our attention. “What a splendid cover! It’s visually strong and it’s inviting! This cover screams summer and I like it. Finally an outdoor shot from them that actually works! One of their best hands down!” raved MON.
“Love this very warm and relaxed summer evening close to the beach. Very inviting!” added |PerfectTonight|.
“Their second reprint cover. IMO, this image is not really suitable for a cover. Team Vogue NL spends their budget on trips and parties instead of making a good magazine,” DutchHomme sniggered.
Benn98 shared the same sentiments, writing, “Second reprint? This does not bode well. I agree that this doesn’t translate well as a cover. One cannot even see her face with the dark shade and hair. At least they’ve narrowed the font types down for this cover.”
In agreement was Miss Dalloway: “Horrible image to reprint as the cover, completely wrong, and would never ever make me want to pick up the issue!”
“Loved this editorial but don’t know about the cover choice…why reprint? I mean really? Couldn’t they have taken an outtake from the April issue shoot…” gossiping wondered soon after.

As if there aren’t enough things for parents to worry about when they send their small children to school, parents of Fort Greene’s Duffield Children’s Center will have to worry about their precious children interacting with noted train wreck Lindsay Lohan.
Parents of the young students received a letter from the staff informing that them Lohan would be completing some of her court-ordered community service hours at the school. Despite the actress’ dubious reputation, early childhood education director Ivonne Lopez assured parents that they won’t have to worry about their kids while Lohan is around. “As with any volunteer, this would be under constant supervision from the classroom teacher and Duffield staff,” she wrote in a letter to the parents. “Please know that all requirements for this volunteer work will be met, prior to her entering the classroom. Furthermore, volunteers are never left alone with children.”
Lord knows what kind of antics Lohan might get into left to her own devices around a gaggle of young, impressionable children. Lohan’s rise to fame and meteoric fall into hot messdom has been well-documented in the press, as has the fact that she has 16 days to complete 115 hours of community service.
But it seems like Lohan’s community service is off to a good start. She tweeted her enthusiasm earlier today, saying she hopes she can “make a difference to their lives.” Naturally, Lohan could not help but do a little self-promotion by regramming a photo of her with a student and what appears to be his mother.
Um, at least he looks happy?
Rushing from your cube to the bar after work, but don’t have the shoulder strength (or the time) to lug another pair of shoes along with you? To the rescue: The Ottawanian turned Parisian Tanya Heath, who has created a line of interchangeable heels to help the well-heeled traveller and anyone looking to pack lots of style smartly. Her line has 10 styles of sandals and pumps and more than 30 kinds of heels at all different heights to mix and match.
Her new store recently opened in Toronto’s posh Yorkville neighbourhood (138 Cumberland Street #7) and is bringing a bit of Canadian French-inspired fashion to the city.
