If anyone knows how to gyrate, it’s that Iggy Azalea. The Aussie rapstress has opened up for GQ‘s February 2015 issue,
When the men’s glossy asked the 24-year-old about her legacy, if and when her fame expires, she replied in true mover-and-shaker form. “At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop,” she explained to GQ.
Then she added in a little somethin’ somethin’ she personally hopes for. “And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great.” When her fellow “Booty” singer Jennifer Lopez is aged 45, and can still twerk like there’s no tomorrow, we’d say it’s a pretty reasonable request to the genetics gods.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and Victoria’s Secret would like to remind you to update your lingerie stash – and they’re doing it right in the middle of the Super Bowl. The retailer has tapped Angels Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo and Alessandra Ambrosio to star in a commercial set to air during the game.
The lingerie giant released a pre-commercial of sorts today to get fans psyched for the Angel’s Super Bowl unveiling. Obviously, the teaser is football-themed, with the girls throwing, running and scoring touchdowns until the end of the video when they take off their helmets to show off long, VS Angel-worthy hair.
“Don’t drop the ball,” the ad instructs, “It’s not Valentine’s Day without Victoria’s Secret.” Alright, alright, we’ll buy some panties, jeez!
Watch the teaser above and get ready for VS’s 30-second spot, airing February 1.
A little hump day hilarity for you in which Julianne Moore fact checks InStyle magazine in the most public way possible. The lady mag tweeted out a link to an interview with the actress where she details how she gets red carpet ready. “I like a good spray tan—it’s a must,” she told the magazine. Seems like a pretty acceptable answer — except Julianne says she wasn’t being serious when she said it.
When the mag tweeted Julianne’s beauty regimen, the actress swiftly responded to set the record straight.
Oops. When we think about it, of course she was kidding. The star’s fair complexion is a dead giveaway that she probably isn’t hitting the tanning salon prior to the red carpet, but her comments could have confused the interviewer: “You have no idea how white I am because this is tan! Can you imagine what I’d look like without one? That would be horrible.” We can see how someone would have mistaken her self-deprecating joke for a real admission.
Alas, these things tend to happen when Mercury is in retrograde.

Kendall Jenner’s turn at Estée Lauder begins with this 39-second spot for the brand’s Little Black Primer product. Kendall’s clearly been practicing her smize in the mirror in anticipation of this ad, for which she casts several side-eye glances — not the shady kind, the sexy, mysterious kind.
The product is supposed to tint your lashes black, work as a base to punch up your regular mascara (which, if Estée Lauder had a choice, we’d wager would be one of its own mascaras) or as a tool to seal your mascara with its water-resistant formula. The film shows Kendall’s lean silhouette, her dark brown locks blowing in the wind of an expertly placed diva fan (à la Beyoncé), interspersed with close-ups of her eyes and a couple shots of her stomping around in her peep-toe booties.
Quite a debut from the buzzy up-and-comer. Watch Kendall in action above.

Who can forget Tom Ford posing with/stalking Daphne Groeneveld on the now controversial issue of Vogue Paris Dec 2010/January 2011? The duo is working together once again for Tom Ford’s mainline Spring 2015 campaign. Daphne is joined by Binx Walton as both strike poses in the studio for Dutch photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Carine Roitfeld oversaw the styling, while Sam McKnight tended to the girls’ rock ‘n’ roll-inspired tresses. Add in Charlotte Tilbury’s dramatic makeup look and it’s no wonder the campaign ticks all the right boxes for our forum members.
“She’s definitely grown up! Feeling the maturity and sexy vibe coming through loud and clear!” commented justaguy, starting us off on a positive note by raving about the first set of images.
“So happy to see Daphne in a major campaign again! She looks phenomenal!” complimented Nepenthes, thrilled with the casting this season.
Also appreciative of the casting was burbuja8910: “Amazing, Daphne fits so well with the clothes.”
Nymphaea was pleasantly surprised, too and echoed, “Didn’t expect Daphne here. Very Tom Ford!”
“So happy they did without Natalie and Gigi, they both did not fit the TF aesthetic at all. Daphne definitely fits TF. It’ll be interesting to see how Binx pulls it off,” wondered VersaceVixen009, approving of the American designer’s choice of models this season.
