Khloe Kardashian Addresses Instagram Haters in the Best Way Possible

Move over Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian’s latest Complex magazine spread is about to break the Internet. The August/September 2015 issue features Khloe as its cover star, showcasing racy photos of her fit and toned body. Clearly, it’s this sister’s time to shine.

According to Complex, the shoot was interrupted by a visit from Kim, who coined herself “creative director” of the shoot, asking, “How much nipple we’re allowed to show.” I think we can all agree that the images are striking and powerful sans nipple. Maybe next time, Kim.

“I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel like ‘Daaamn, you look good,’” she tells Complex. “But I’ve never felt as comfortable in my own skin than I do now.” Apparently feeling good in your own skin brings out the crazies. Shortly after posting the stunning cover image on Instagram, Internet trolls were quick to say that her entire body was airbrushed and Photoshopped. In natural Kardashian form, Khloe posted a photo of the untouched image directly beside the one that appears in the magazine spread: 

“This one is for all the troll haters out there that cannot seem to give me an ounce of credit for my daily workouts!” she says. “The image on the left is an unretouched photo from the actual camera on the day of the shoot. The image on the right is the retouched photo. Yes skin is smooth and shadows are removed but I still think I look good on the left image. Flaws and all.” Hard work pays off, Khloe. Keep up the good work. 

Khloe Kardashian’s Complex issue hits newsstands on August 8.

Gigi Hadid Is Topshop’s Fall 2015 Campaign Star

Topshop manages to snap up all of the most current models for its campaigns and its latest big catch is Gigi Hadid. The Fall 2015 campaign is her first for Topshop and was shot by Tyrone Lebon in his hometown of London. The styling comes courtesy of Kate Phelan, who has created the perfect fusion of effortless jeans-and-tee pairings with sharp tailoring and luxe faux fur.

Gigi has already built herself quite the modeling portfolio, counting the likes of Chanel and Balmain amongst her previous employers. Bagging the Fall 2015 campaign of quite possibly the U.K.’s coolest fast-fashion retailer indicates that she’s not going anywhere soon.


Comin to ya worldwide @TOPSHOP

Being the daughter of model and reality TV star Yolanda Foster and BFFs with the Kardashians helps to raise your star status, but Gigi also believes that the success of models these days boils down to the power of their social media fan bases. She recently explained in an interview with Grazia Daily that “for a long time you would see a girl for one season and then you’d never really hear about her again. Now models are getting to create a fanbase that keeps them around.”

Unfortunately, the campaign pieces aren’t available to buy just yet, but Topshop has revealed that the lookbook will be available to shop very soon. So, watch this space for updates Gigi fans!

The Latest Bondi Hipsters Interview with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader Highlights Sexism Perfectly


Discussing Gender Equality with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader… Sorry for turning gender-specific questions on their head.#notsorry #genderequality #freethenipple #everydaysexism #menareobjectstoo #amyschumer #billhader

Posted by Bondi Hipsters on Monday, 27 July 2015

The Bondi Hipsters have been releasing interviews with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader all week, but the latest instalment really takes the cake.

“Turning gender-specific questions on their head”, Dom and Adrian ask Bill a number of questions which would typically be geared towards a female, like what he’s wearing and how he juggles family life with a career.

Here, the Bondi Hipsters perfectly highlight how these questions have become a regular fixture in media interviews for female talent and not for their male counterparts. Plus, the up-and-down camera view on Bill’s outfit and the twirl request really hit the nail on the head.

Even Natalia Vodianova Can’t Save Miss Sixty’s Fall 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The lesser-known brands have certainly proved themselves this campaign season, generating almost the same amount of interest in our forums as the likes of Gucci and Miu Miu. In an attempt to gain some press, Miss Sixty brought out the big guns and tapped photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to lens its Fall 2015 campaign. The Italian fashion brand also enlisted the modeling expertise of Natalia Vodianova to showcase its latest offering with Edward Enninful on styling duties. Unfortunately, not even some of the best talents in the industry could save Miss Sixty’s campaign from a disastrous outcome.

Miss Sixty Fall 2015 Ad Campaign Natalia Vodianova by Mert and Marcus


“Miss Sixty Years Old, here you are! This campaign would be good without Natalia and with different clothes. That denim dress is just so ugly and Natalia looks as fake as a badly made doll with Botox in every part of her body, but I’m used to it after tons of creepy Stella McCartney campaigns with her,” commented an uninterested perhydrol.

“Boring to death…” simply stated burbuja8910.

Also left horrified was madzedre: “Mert and Marcus the downfall… So sad.”

“I was expecting more. When was the last time there was a Miss Sixty ad? And this is what they deliver?” TREVOFASHIONISTO asked in disappointment.

Benn98 certainly wasn’t showing much enthusiasm, either: “Why won’t they get rid of that horrible logo? It cheapens everything. Everything works except the clothes. Who on earth will wear that denim dress? A millennial with an old-school Britney Spears fixation??”
