Much Latex, Little Time for Kim Kardashian in Melbourne

In case you haven’t heard, Kim Kardashian is developing a bit of a fetish for latex during her time here in Australia. Yesterday she popped into Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre to promote her new fragrance Fleur Fatale, and thought a skintight latex pencil skirt was the appropriate wardrobe choice to meet her fans of all ages.

She could probably wear a shapeless muumuu and still manage to show off her bewildering curves, so we’re not quite sure why she continues to wear fabric fit for a dominatrix. At least this time she didn’t double up on latex like her red carpet appearance earlier in the week, and chose to break it up with a high-neck David Koma top with chic white piping.

She turned to her favourite Atsuko Kudo for the white-latex midi skirt, and teamed the getup with neutral two-strap heels. Her slick middle-parted low pony and dark-plum lips were to die for, and we actually would’ve praised this outfit if she traded up the latex for, well, anything else.

Lammily Doll Has Real Human Proportions — and Stretch Marks

lammily-dollNickolay Lamm set out to create a fashion doll that was shaped like an actual human being rather than some sort of freakish Barbie-like rendering of a woman that could never exist in nature. In March, Lamm launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to actually make the dolls, which he calls Lammily. Now, he’s putting them to the test and in the hands of students at a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania private school to see just how this realistic doll would be received. Get ready to have your faith restored in humanity because it turns out the kids loved her.

“She’s really unique,” one girl said. “I don’t have other dolls like this. It looks real.” So real that the kids imagined her doing real-life activities and having real jobs; teaching, swimming and surfing. They also noted the physicality of the doll — Lammily’s feet allow her to actually stand, a far cry from Barbie’s (admittedly delicious) feet, locked in a perma-tiptoe stance. As one boy so eloquently put it, “The toes…they’re not like, a bunch of bumps.”

The kids seemed to really pick up on the Lammily doll’s realistic nature and their responses illustrated that. One girl mentioned that Lammily looks like she would help people, another said the doll looked like her sister. Next to Barbie, Lammily seemed more accessible and more relatable to the kids, who probably don’t yet understand the body image issues that arise from ultra thin and disproportionate dolls like Barbie. They assigned Lammily with a more caring, human-like nature, which makes sense, considering she’s supposed to be built like an actual person.

Mario Testino and The Macallan Team Up for Masters of Photography Series

You can already consider Mario Testino a master of photography, but The Macallan is making it official. The spirits brand has tapped Testino for its Masters of Photography series, in which the label gets a famous photographer to put his or her touch on its famous Scotch whisky boxes.

The sleek, black box (also designed by Testino) has a nook for a large bottle of Scotch whisky, a photo booklet with 20 of Testino’s images as well as a pull-out side drawer filled with six miniature bottles of booze. The photos accompanying the drink collection capture a feeling of glamour, luxury and good ol’ fashioned carefree-ness. (more…)

Can You Tell Us Who Allure’s December Cover Star Is? (Forum Buzz)

Allure magazine failed to impress our forum members last month with Kerry Washington’s cover and now the magazine’s December cover has fallen out of favor. Allison Williams (Girls, The Mindy Project, Peter Pan Live) stars on the beauty bible’s latest installment, lensed by Carter Smith. Allison gives us good face wearing a dress from Rochas, but even with her brunette tresses styled into loose waves looking as glossy as ever, our forum members are still not convinced.

“No! This girl is so pretty and Allure completely missed the opportunity to bring that out. I just see hair, nothing else. I was actually wondering which cover she’ll get for Peter Pan,” proclaims Benn98, kicking off the thread.

Blueorchid is less than impressed: “I hate to say it, but this is so corny (Allison Williams learns to fly??? Lmao). I can’t believe they’re giving her the cover of any magazine for that ridiculous Peter Pan performance.”

“Learns to fly really is corny, was just thinking the same thing. She is beautiful but that hair isn’t doing her any favors at all and I don’t like this shot,” replies KateTheGreatest in agreement.

Discussion soon shifted as to who Allison Williams actually is. “I don´t know who she is and I don´t like this cover, it´s just so plain imo,” comments an uninterested kokobombon.

“What? What is this? Who [is] she? Why this?” questions a less than satisfied GlamorousBoy.

Justaguy adds, “No idea who she is, but this would make a great shot for a hair ad.”

Benn98‘s enlightens everyone, writing, “You clearly don’t watch Girls with Lena Dunham. She’s one of that show’s leads. Also, she will portray Peter Pan in a live TV special to be aired on December 4 for Americans.”

Add your own two cents inside the thread here. Be sure to check out Allison’s cover story also!
