Nicole Richie is ELLE Australia’s July Cover Girl

Joel Madden might be falling increasingly in love with our country after three consecutive seasons of The Voice Australia, but it's his better half, Nicole Richie, that we're all seriously girl-crushing on. Whether it's her impeccable style or ever-changing hair colour, the girl's got us hooked. ELLE Australia seems to think so too, choosing the House of Harlow designer to front its July 2014 issue in a circus-inspired shoot.

Shot by Justin Coit and styled by Nicole Bonython-Hines, the editorial took place in an L.A. circus scrap yard with Richie wearing dramatic head pieces and zebra-print frocks  fit for your high-end carnival folk. It seems the clothes could come secondary to her tell-all interview though, with ELLE Australia hinting at what you will find should you buy the issue that hit stands today.

So if you've always wanted to know more about her 82-minute stint in jail or what her hubby thinks of her dad, Lionel Richie, then this might be the issue you want to fork out $8.50 for.

A Dreamy Holiday Aesthetic for Zimmermann Resort 2015

Australians have good reason to enjoy a designer's resort collection. It's delivered at the same time our warmer months kick in, and it's 10 times more likely to end up in our wardrobes. It's not like we needed any justification to fall madly in love with Zimmermann's Ready-To-Wear Resort 2015 collection though, we reckon the dreamy holiday aesthetic is reason enough.

Although The Light Riot collection was inspired by nostalgic summer holidays in Bali, designer Nicky Zimmermann has cleverly managed to combine island living with the big smoke of the city into a truly gorgeous range. Crisp whites, burgundy, navy and a splash of metallics and captivating batik prints help translate the designs from poolside to city pavements.

The collection's eyelet embroidery was executed perfectly in true Zimmermann style, and with its use of spotted sheer panelling, risqué cut-out detailing and plunging necklines, the brand captures femininity and sex appeal all in one hit. The bohemian, flowing silhouettes and one-of-a-kind swimwear also get a big tick from us.

It's clear we'll all be wanting a piece of Zimmermann's top-notch Resort 2015 collection, but now the only thing left for us to do is patiently await its arrival in stores this October.

Back On Track: Vogue Mexico’s July Cover Goes to Lily Aldridge (Forum Buzz)

After Isabeli Fontana's disastrous June cover, Vogue Mexico is back on track with its latest installment. The magazine released the July 2014 cover via Twitter just before the weekend. Victoria's Secret Angel Lily Aldridge fronts the new issue, photographed by James Macari. The American model wears a top from Rag & Bone teamed with a pair of beige leather pants from Salvatore Ferragamo.

Even after getting a more simplistic cover, members of our forums aren't so convinced. "Dreadful! Who chose those pants for the cover? It looks imbalanced like her torso is very short," comments Urban Stylin.

After a comment regarding Isabeli's cover, Bertrando3 replied: "To me both covers look bad. This one we have a pair of pants that look huge, a top that looks messy (I mean her chest looks weird and the top could have been easily adjusted from her back to look nicer on the front), they mixed gold and silver and her face doesn't say anything to me. I'll give this cover a 4/10."

Discussion later shifted to the styling: "I loooove the pants, rings and bracelets, I haaaate the crop top and necklace," wrote GlamVal.

"Lily looks good here but can 't say the same for the styling," echoed justaguy.

First Look: Isabel Marant’s Fall 2014 Ad Campaign with Gisele Bündchen (Forum Buzz)

Three years since her last Isabel Marant campaign, Gisele Bündchen returns as the face of the French fashion label's Fall 2014 collection. She replaces Daria Werbowy, who served as Marant's campaign girl prior to Gisele's return. The Brazilian model dons pieces from the latest collection, which features menswear-inspired items with casual tailoring and thick knit sweaters. Gisele embodies Parisian chic perfectly, while being photographed in both the studio and the outdoors.

Forum members are delighted with the outcome. "This is flawless," comments Nepenthes.

GIVENCHYlover shared the same outlook and wrote, "So cool, great styling." Cool being a word often used to describe the Marant aesthetic.

ALAUU noticed a lack of over-airbrushing which is always refreshing: "Love the freckles. The campaign doesn't seem to make much sense just like last season, but Gisele looks great."

"I love every single shot (although they went overboard on the freckles), but I'm confused. Is this an outdoor campaign? Studio? Regardless can't wait to see more. Gisele is perfection," wrote Elfinkova.

Model Tanya Linney Explores Self-Image In New Art Exhibition


After modelling in the fashion industry for over 15 years, Tanya Linney has been exposed to ideas of materialism, consumerism, sexual exploitation and the role of beauty and age on a regular basis. Now that her modelling days are behind her, the Australian beauty has chosen to explore these controversial ideas through her art and is launching an exhibition in Sydney's Surry Hills this July.

"In a modern society full of visual overload and stimulus, we are becoming increasingly obsessed with the exterior self-image, tempting and fuelling our social anxieties," she says. "The idea of ‘self’ has become a comic gentrification, a bi-product of materialism and identities formed through brands."

And although her art touches on some serious topics, Linney reminds her audience that the work is not as heavy as we may think, and as with all her work there is a layer of humour to the collection. “As much as we explore these aspects of society, we also learn not to take ourselves too seriously, which is a notion often forgotten in today’s world of celebrity, fame and glamour,” she explains.

Even with her newfound power to put the spotlight on problems within the industry through her art, Linney is still a part of the fashion world. Since becoming an artist, Linney has worked with some of Australia's most prestigious designers including Kirrily Johnston, Sass and Bide and Ksubi on various projects, and her collaboration with Dion Lee in 2011 saw her art used on fabrics for his collection.

The Tales of Tempt collection comprises 18 one-off pieces using paint, charcoal, oil, collage and enamel on canvas and wood. It is Linney's first significant shift away from her usual methods of photography and collage. 

The Tales of Tempt exhibition will run from July 4 – July 10, 2014.
