People magazine has crowned its sexiest man of 2014 and the honor has gone to none other than Chris Hemsworth, aka the reason why you can’t decide which Hemsworth brother is hotter. Last night, Jimmy Kimmel helped unveil the elder Hemsworth as the recipient of the coveted honor, joining the ranks of other “sexiest” men like George Clooney, John F. Kennedy Jr., Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt.
According to People, the actor is taking his new title and running with it with plans to use it as leverage with his wife, 38-year-old model Elsa Pataky. “I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house,” he said. “I can just say to her, ‘Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don’t need to do the dishes anymore, I don’t need to change nappies. I’m above that. I’ve made it now.’” We’re sure Elsa will have a different opinion on that one.
People released the cover image for the issue, which hits newsstands on Friday, and it looks like Idris Elba and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt also made the cut for the world’s sexiest. We can’t wait to see all 208 of those fine, fine men.
Substance Blog’s Ally Carey became Ally Hayward last on Friday, November 14, exchanging vows with her photographer boyfriend-turned-husband, Jonathan Hayward, at a super cute winery called Cupitt’s in NSW’s Milton.
Being a fashion blogger and all, and after working in the fashion scene for over five years now, Ally was able to benefit from her web of industry connections for the big day. She admits that when she booked the wedding venue eight months ago she already had a hairdresser, makeup artist and designer picked out thanks to her industry know-how. “I knew exactly who I wanted to use,” Ally told theFashionSpot.

A lot us recognise the famous face of modelling royalty Linda Evangelista. She is, after all, one of the world’s most accomplished and influential supermodels of all time, and she’s the power figure who notoriously said she “doesn’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.” But, sadly, some younger modelling hopefuls don’t have a clue who this woman is, or how much it costs for her to wake up.
Alex Perry revealed to KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O this morning that he had to educate his Australia’s Next Top Model contestants of Linda’s status when she appeared as a guest judge on the show recently. “I think the girls had to Google her, though,” Alex said. “We remember her but 16-year-olds don’t.” (more…)

Lara Bingle is in town promoting her new tanning range, The Base by Lara Bingle, showing off the product’s stain-free qualities by dodging any ugly-orange marks in an all-white Josh Goot getup.
The model-turned-entrepreneur stepped onto the streets of Sydney in a masculine ensemble, including a sports-luxe backless zipper tank teamed with white trousers and a skirt over the top. Even though she was so close to nailing the all-white errythang without a stain in sight, Lara chose to break it up with statement black pumps to add some chic business-woman sophistication.
There’s no doubt that the crisp-white separates and skin-baring features showed off her fake-tanned skin well, while also promoting the product in a strategic and subtle manner, but we’re not sure how to feel about the overall outfit. We’re pretty open to the pants-under-dresses trend, but the pants-under-skirt look doesn’t seem to be a winner here. So good promo for her tanning line. Josh Goot’s range, not so much.

2014 has been a tough year for keeping Kim Kardashian out of Australia, headlines, and revealing outfits. The reality star was back in Melbourne last night to promote her new fragrance, Fleur Fatale, and decided a latex ensemble would be a marvellous choice for the paparazzi-filled red carpet.
I don’t think anyone was terribly phased on how little Kim left to the imagination in this skin-tight combo with exposed cleavage, because, let’s be honest, we’ve all seen her naked now anyway. It’s more the use of latex, the same material used to protect us from sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies, that has raised an eyebrow or two.
The blush-pink bodysuit and pencil skirt was by latex couture designer Atsuko Kudo, and props to Kim for getting into the uncomfortable-looking synthetic fabric. But we can’t turn a blind eye to how trashy the getup looks, despite its hefty price tag (around $535 AUD). We do love those suede pointed shoes, though.
When Christian Louboutin debuted his $50 nail polish, we were all like, “Dang, $50? You could get a Drybar blowout for cheaper and it would probably last longer, plus you get free cookies and wine!” Yeah, we thought the price was pretty exorbitant then, but compared to the shoe designer’s newest lacquer? That $50 price tag looks like a mere drop in the bucket.
All frivolities are valid in the name of luxury and Louboutin’s latest nail polish falls firmly into that category. Just in time for the holidays, the designer is releasing Starlight, a special edition of one of Louboutin’s signature red hues, except the bottle is decorated with 1,500 Strass crystals, hand-glued into a blinged-out gradient pattern. The precious polish comes in a velvet bag and is housed in a box decorated with red flowers and even more crystals. How much does such a fancy bottle of paint cost you? Oh, just $675.
Seriously — the cost of this bottle of lacquer is more than what you would pay for two pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes during a sample sale! And even at discounted prices, those shoes ain’t cheap. Heck, they’re even selling a pair of burgundy satin pumps right now that cost as much. But if the $675 price tag doesn’t bother you, then congratulations — you are Louboutin’s target customer and you are the kind of girl who has everything. Must be nice.
If you’ve got the cash, you can purchase a bottle at Christian Louboutin.
