An LA Sex Shop Wardrobed Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video

One thing we can all agree on about the “Bad Blood” music video is that the wardrobe is very, very sexy. And it’s not by coincidence that Swift and her feminist heroes (minus, of course, Kendrick Lamar) were clad in such racy looks. According to Page Six, a lot of the outfits were lent to Swift and her crew by a Los Angeles sex shop.

The Stockroom, located on Sunset Blvd., is said to have blessed Swift with $13,000 worth of clothing, $5,000 of which they actually kept. Amongst the several items provided was Swift’s latex flesh-toned dress and Selena Gomez’s black latex blouse with puffy sleeves. 

Like any shop looking to thrive in the face of a major moneymaking opportunity, The Stockroom is planning to make more of the clothes Gomez and Swift wore for the video – a wise decision considering there will likely be a lot of people looking to get their hands on the sexy latex wares. Whether they use them as regular outfits – or for something a bit naughtier — is of course up to the shoppers.

Ben Fiberesima, who goes under the rapper name Roky Million, has been put behind bars after being found guilty on multiple charges including theft and making false representations.

Fans of his alter ago, which saw him living a double life in Australia as a high-fashion model and rapper, needn’t be too disappointed, though, because it seems as though Roky could be working on a debut album while on the inside.

Although Kilburn Times reports that Roky, who had modelled for the big guns like Calvin Klein and Tom Ford, was put behind bars this week, Roky’s Twitter account is still very much active.

After almost a six-month hiatus from the blue bird, with the last tweet on December 30 suggesting his management would take over, Roky’s account has posted twice in the last 12 hours. (more…)

Plus-Size Model Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

Plus-size model Tess Holliday is having a great year. After being the first model of her stature to score a modeling contract (she’s 5’5″ and a size 22), she’s making headlines again on the cover of People magazine’s body issue.

The MiLK Management model has been enjoying her success – just last week she mentioned on Instagram that she just completed “the biggest shoot of [her] career.” We’re all looking forward to seeing more of Holliday, who tells People she has been quite a busy bee. “I just got back from London three weeks ago, I’m going to New York this week, then next week I’m going to Montreal and New York again,” she said. “Then I go to Seattle, New Orleans and Vegas after that, all for work!”

Tess’ glamourous life is a far cry from what she experienced growing up in Mississippi. “I was getting shoved into lockers, I was being called names,” she says. “I was getting death threats at my house. It was awful.”  When she tried to break into the modeling business, she was first told she was too large and too short to actually be a plus model. But all of that is changing for the woman who started the #EffYourBeautyStandards hashtag. Now, Holliday is challenging the very standards that were obstacles early on in her career, on the cover of People, no less.

And she looks damn good doing it.

Chris Benz on Why He Took a Break from His Namesake Label

Chris Benz is at the start of a new chapter in his career and we can’t wait to see what he does. The designer took some time off from his eponymous label in 2013, but now he’s back, this time at the helm of Bill Blass, which hasn’t shown a collection since 2012. There has been a lot of mystery around Benz’s hiatus from his own brand, which the designer cleared up yesterday during Fashionista’s meetup at Space 530

“In some ways, we told all the stories for that girl and when we started, that girl was very of that minute,” he said. “We sort of shifted gears aesthetically in the world. At that time, everything was black, so when we did color it was like, ‘Oh, that was a colorful jewel of a collection.’ As we wound everything up, it was Rick Owens, Alex Wang. The aesthetic [of the time] didn’t support what the aesthetic of the brand was.” 

It also seems Benz was plagued by the general fatigue that comes with the rigors of having to constantly produce so many new collections. “The hardest part for me was having to churn out hundreds of new products every four months, literally from scratch. Because that’s what designer fashion is. You have to come up with four great ideas plus a hundred more every four months.” It is a reason many designers cite for repositioning their brands, or ditching them altogether. Viktor & Rolf recently stepped away from ready-to-wear, calling the process of creating so many collections “creatively restricting.” John Galliano has also mentioned that the stressful schedule was part of the reason why his drug and alcohol abuse got so out of control.  

Benz quietly took a break and he is very pleased with the way he handled what could have been a media frenzy. “I think I did great in winding down my collection,” he said with the kind of charming satisfaction we come to expect from him. “I did not do one interview, I did not do one story, I didn’t make it into a thing. Fashion loves a headline, they love to build people up and then tear them down.”

We expect a lot more building up in Benz’s future once his work for Bill Blass hits stores this fall.
