Demi Lovato is one of those child star stories that we love. She emerged from a stint in rehab stronger and more successful than ever before. Right now, she’s on tour and homegirl is killing it — just peep the crowds coming out to see her. And trust, her pull is not going unnoticed. Skechers has just tapped the singer to front its Holiday 2014 campaign.
The shoe label’s offering a sneak peek at what’s to come from the campaign, including a video introducing the singer, who says she wears Skechers “almost daily” as the brand’s newest face.
Demi is obviously stoked to be welcomed into the Skechers family, partly because of the company’s emphasis on individuality: “Everyone is unique and Skechers embodies that. Their Skechers Memory Foam shoes conform to YOU, so it’s a customized fit. I think everyone should celebrate their individuality and I’m happy to collaborate with Skechers in promoting this message.”
In the teaser clip, we see a peppy Demi posing happily in her very comfy kicks. Check her out in action.
We’re all waiting with baited breath for the Altuzarra collection to hit Target stores (patience, the 14th is days away). But until then, bide your time with this nugget of news: Target just announced its newest collaboration: TOMS!
In an Instagram post, Target’s director for design partnerships announced the collab, saying, “Announcing! Our next collaboration is TOMS X TARGET. @blakemycoskie just announced the collection with 14000 Target team members at our fall national meeting #tomsfortarget gift collection for holiday launching 11/16.”
We can’t wait to see what’s on offer, and if this means even more shoes will be donated to children.
Stay tuned for more details.
Update: Target just sent out the official release with more info. The collection, which launches November 16, will include home goods, clothing and accessories all for under $50. And, keeping the TOMS ethos in mind, Target will donate blankets, shoes or meals to North-American charities for each item sold. A perfect holiday collaboration.
We’ve long associated Canada’s West Coast with natural beauty and a laid-back lifestyle, but now we’re also looking at it through a stylish lens. Set to kick off on September 15, Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) will feature 60 designers unveiling their Spring 2015 collections to over 25,000 buyers, media, celebrities and industry insiders.
With a focus on celebrating fashion, creativity and multiculturalism, VFW has invited designers from all corners of the globe to show at this event. Buzz-worthy names include Brazil’s Renata Buzzo, a devout vegan who is known for her custom-created garments that use moulage draping; France’s Joffrey Mongin, a recipient of the HEC Luxury Club Award and a member of the Givenchy ready-to-wear design team; and Italy’s Andrea Lazzari, a graduate of Milan’s prestigious Istituto Marangoni who favours designs that mix the classical with the experimental. Other designers hail from Australia, Colombia, Mexico, India and Norway, making this a truly international event that’s not to be missed.
NEWFLASH: We’re living in the era of big butts. For the first time in human history, people are finally embracing the beauty of a round, high, bubble butt. What a time to be alive!
Yesterday, Vogue published an article proclaiming this as “Officially the Era of the Big Booty.” 2014 has certainly been a great year for butts – Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” is a hit. Jen Selter‘s “Belfies” gave a new name to the ubiquitous Instagram ass shot and now, Jennifer Lopez, whom we can credit for introducing the beauty of a round derriere to America, has just released “Booty” in collaboration with another endowed artist, Iggy Azalea.
And thank goodness! To think I felt fat all those times at my Upper East Side high school because my bubble butt made my uniform kilt too short in the back! All those times in college when I couldn’t find jeans to fit me: forgotten! It’s nice to see Vogue affirming that now my booty is cool. That really heals all the pain I experienced in my younger days. It would have been so nice if there were images and music in pop culture confirming that my figure was beautiful back then (besides “Bootylicious,” which was mentioned in the original article).
Wait a minute….
After Carine Roitfeld‘s spectacular shoot for the September issue, Katy Perry is now U.S. Harper’s Bazaar‘s latest cover star. The “Teenage Dream” singer poses on the magazine’s October 2014 cover photographed by Camilla Akrans. The shot is certainly a departure from Katy’s usual look as we see the 29-year-old looking ultra glamorous wearing a show-stopping dress by Schiaparelli Couture, styled by Julia von Boehm.
See inside the thread here for both the newsstand (pictured above) and subscribers covers. It seems members of our forums have mixed feelings toward the covers. “The newsstand cover is so pink and tacky. I like the subscriber’s cover though!” wrote Nepenthes.
“The newsstand cover is like an overdose of Cherry Coke, while the subscribers one is beautiful,” agreed tigerrouge.
“The subscriber’s cover is a beautiful image. I’ve learnt with Harper’s US to just pretend entirely that their newsstand covers don’t exist. It’s for the best,” declared honeycombchild.
“Wow that subscribers cover is beautiful. How the dress falls and how she posed makes it look so regal! The newsstand cover could have been better if it were subjected to their usual white background. That would have allowed the beautiful red dress to stand out in the cover. Although I must agree that she looks so average here and her eyes look so sleepy,” MON said.
A.D.C. doesn’t seem to rate Harper’s Bazaar and posted, “Bazaar makes everyone look average.”
“I second that!” replied Benn98, who went on to say: “I’m just glad Camilla shot this. It’s not the most captivating shot, but it’s much, much better than her last cover for them. They must just stop with this color background, there’s nothing ‘fall’ about this. The subscriber’s cover is very nice, and hopefully the ed will be too! I guess their model high has come to an end. Pity, really looked forward to their issues a few months ago.”
Better than the September cover with Lady Gaga? Share your own opinion inside the thread here.
