It’s easy to forget that we first met Olivia Palermo on a reality show called The City. She’s more famous now than she ever was on the MTV spinoff, thanks to her sartorial savvy and penchant for design. The fashion industry darling teamed up with Nordstrom for her latest collaboration, a collection titled Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28.
Fashion authorities across the globe are working to combat excessive thinness in the modeling industry. The French government recently put legislation in place that bans models with a Body Mass Index (BMI) less than 18. While France requires that models produce a medical certificate, British fashion brand Rose and Williard is taking a more drastic approach. The label is forcing models to eat while authorities watch.
Rose and Willard added the non-negotiable clause to model contracts to try and thwart unhealthy eating practices.

Everything Queen Bey touches turns to gold, and the market price of the run-down Melbourne home used in her “No Angel” music video is only proof of that.

Forever breaking the mould, Albino model Shaun Ross is letting it all hang out in LA band BRÅVES’ music video “Dust”, confronting viewers with a ridiculously large penis in his most interesting modelling gig yet.
Consisting of a slowly evolving single shot played in reverse, the black-and-white clip see Shaun eventually expose the specimen, if only for, give-or-take, 30 seconds, effortlessly moving that thing all pendulum-like.
While we think we’ll find other ways to weigh our paper down at work, the musical trio’s Johnny What revealed to Flaunt that the idea behind the clip was to “make something beautiful, moving, shocking, and controversial. Something open-ended that would carry a different meaning for everyone who watched it.” (more…)
Dolce & Gabbana is turning over a new leaf. The Italian fashion house found itself embroiled in controversy last year when founders slammed same-sex marriages and in vitro fertilization. But with their latest designs, they seem to be embracing a wider definition of family. Stefano Gabbana shared two new handbag designs featuring same-sex couples holding their children. (more…)
The worlds of dance and fashion are intrinsically linked, from ballet flats to the athleisure craze. The A/W16 collection from David Jones is perfectly suited for a night of dancing with jumpsuits and skirts that allow for the full range of movement. To celebrate the season’s effortless silhouettes, the department store collaborated with the Sydney Dance Company to star in an exclusive fashion film. Directed by Clemens Habicht (the visionary behind music videos for the likes of Bloc Party and Tame Impala), the exhilarating visual finds dancers leaping, jumping and spinning to the sounds of Disclosure’s “When A Fire Starts to Burn” while dressed in the season’s latest looks.
“The partnership between David Jones and the Sydney Dance Company is a meeting of two brands who share qualities of innovation and spirit,” said Donna Player, David Jones Group Executive Merchandise. “Performance and fashion are both timeless expressions of individuality so it was only natural we celebrate our new season pieces through dance for our A\W 2016 campaign.” The Sydney Dance Company is joined by David Jones ambassadors Montana Cox and Jessica Gomez and international supermodel Catherine McNeil for an elegant dance party to celebrate the start of the autumn season.
