Sam Frost has been chosen as the new rose-master of Australia’s first-ever The Bachelorette. We know it couldn’t have been an easy decision for Sam, especially considering what happened last time, so we thought we’d catch up with her best bud from The Bachelor mansion, runner-up Lisa Hyde, to see why Sam’s giving love a second chance, publicly.

“I was very shocked to hear the news this morning,” Lisa tells theFashionSpot. When asked about Sam’s change of heart, after she said she turned the offer down last month, Lisa says “She wasn’t ready for it back then.” She continues, “She just didn’t consider it at all and I think she was still going through stages. I definitely think she would’ve sat down and really thought about it and what she really wanted.”

Despite Sam’s humiliation on the show last year, when bachie Blake Garvey proposed to her on national TV but dumped her before the finale aired, Lisa is confident Sam knows what she’s getting herself into. “I’m not worried,” she says. “I think she knows what she’s doing and I don’t think she would enter into it if she wasn’t 100 per cent sure that she wanted to do it.” (more…)

Uma Thurman Stars in Vs. Magazine’s Homage to 70s Cult Thriller

Uma Thurman and Ellen von Unwerth have teamed up for a fashionable short film for Vs. magazine. The actress was tapped to star in “Eyes of Uma,” a fashion film inspired by the 1978 film “Eyes of Laura Mars” in which the protagonist, played by Faye Dunaway, is able to watch through a serial killer’s eyes as he attacks people. 

In this shorter, cheekier and campier version of the film, Uma is cast as a photographer, who catches glimpses of a murder as she is photographing lingerie-clad women. Of course, the entire thing is shot beautifully, thanks to Unwerth’s discriminating eye and the glamour of the 70s is strongly represented here in the styling and makeup. It is a fun, whimsical homage to the original film, styled by Vibe Dabelsteen.

Watch Ms. Thurman in action in the video above.

Apple Watch May Not Work as Well If You Have Tattoos

If you were planning to pick up a version of the Apple Watch and you have tattoos, you may want to reconsider rushing to put in an order for the tech device. A few Redditors found that their ink was keeping the watch from working properly.

Something about tattoos extending to your wrist makes the Apple Watch think the user is not wearing the watch, sometimes causing it to lock, forcing the wearer to enter a password when they use it. The wearer has the option of turning off the wrist detector, but some worry that could expose the owner to security issues with Apple Pay and other apps included with the watch. Tattoos can also make it difficult for the watch to take your pulse, receive notifications and make calls. 

The problem lies in the colors of tattoos — specifically solid tattoos in dark colors like red — which prevent the watch from reading your pulse. “Apple uses various spectrums of light to track the blood flow through your skin,” iMore says. “Anything that reduces that light’s reflectiveness — ink pigmentation within your skin, for example — can interfere with that sensor.” The site found that darker tattoo colors like black and red make the watch misread your heartbeat or ignore skin contact, while lighter colors are slightly easier for the watch to work with (the readings weren’t as inaccurate and the watch was able to better acknowledge skin contact with those lighter hues). iMore notes that these problems don’t arise if your skin is naturally darker, or if you have scars on your wrist.

While it doesn’t mean people with tattoos can’t use the Apple Watch, it is important to do diligent testing if your ink extends to the area around your wrist. The Apple Watch doesn’t come cheap and the last thing you want is to spend money on an item that isn’t going to work in the way it’s supposed to. Or you can just wait for Apple to improve on the watch so it does work no matter what kind of ink you’re sporting.
