David Beckham can even make laziness sexy. The soccer legend earns his sexiest man of the year title in H&M ads promoting his new loungewear collection. With perfect hair, tattoos and a “come hither” stare, Beckham models his new lineup of classic athleisure pieces with a modern update. Think skinny sweatpants, long crewnecks and boxy T-shirts. The line launches on February 4 in H&M stores that carry menswear and on HM.com. (more…)
Ben Stiller has well and truly made his mark in Australia as Derek Zoolander. He’s given our own Waleed Aly a modelling lesson, walked the red carpet with Heidi Klum, celebrated Australia Day with fireworks (cue Katy Perry Insta tag) and explained the heritage of the Sydney Opera House. It’s Oprah’s house, for when she’s in Australia, duh.
Most recently Derek even gave the Sydney Harbour Bridge a new identity by turning it into a runway, strutting down the catwalk to Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax” in custom-made, homegrown label Ksubi. Yep, only he could glamourise and get around those god awful safety jumpsuits. (more…)
Rihanna dropped the first single from her highly teased new album, “ANTI”, overnight and dayum it’s a banger.

The track is also currently available to play for free via Tidal, the same streaming platform which appears to have also released BagGalRiRi’s entire eighth studio album by accident, if the below Twitter posts are anything to go by. The album is rumoured to be released sometime this week. (more…)
Karl Lagerfeld is never at a loss for inspiration. He draws from grocery stores, airports and even tragedies to create intricate collections with meticulous themes. For spring, his haute couture offering for Chanel is a sartorial ode to sustainability.
Tess Holliday is the world’s first size 22 supermodel and the first woman of her size signed to a major modeling agency. She’s known as much for her groundbreaking achievements as she is for her willingness to speak her mind. She once slammed Victoria’s Secret for limited beauty standards. Now, she’s addressing criticism that her size makes her unhealthy in a new interview with Paper Magazine.
Check out excerpts from her interview below:
On health critics:
“I think that some of the biggest surprises I’ve had early on, actually to this day, are all the misconceptions about my body and my health. There are so many people who think that being a plus-size model, that there’s something wrong with it, or that I must be unhealthy or that I’m promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. And at first it was very hard, and I blamed it on myself, and then I thought … my health is none of their business, I’m modeling for this clothing company, so why are people dissecting my body and telling me that I can’t wear some things? That I can’t look a certain way because of my body? And I did combat that for awhile, and argue with people about that, but ultimately it’s kind of like banging your head into a brick wall. If people are committed to that theory, I’m not going to change their mind. But there people who look like me, and feel like me, who feel like they don’t have a voice, and that encouraged me to keep going.” (more…)
We haven’t seen an issue of POP magazine in a hot minute, but the title reminds us of its existence by unveiling its upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 edition this week. In true biannual magazine fashion, POP serves up multiple covers, putting out three different covers that have surely caught our attention. Naomi Campbell and A$AP Rocky cozy up on cover one by Brianna Capozzi, Natalia Vodianova fronts the second by Harley Weir, while Daria Werbowy poses for Juergen Teller for the third and final cover.
But our forum members weren’t buying any of the covers. “What the hell is this?” asked a horrified Royal-Galliano with Creative shortly adding, “Not cool at all,” the moment the covers surfaced, unwilling to set the discussion off on a positive note.
“I kind of like Daria and a bit more Natalia. But what is happening to Naomi? She’s been looking so unnatural for the last two years. I must say that the selection of models looks a bit tired. I love these girls but I feel like I’ve been seeing these combinations for the last 10-12 years now…” critiqued KissMiss. (more…)
