Today, Adidas-owned 80s darling Reebok (outfitter of aerobic enthusiasts and Patrick Ewing) announced Hadid as the newest face of its #PerfectNever campaign. The body-positive initiative is “an inspirational call to action that asks women around the world to celebrate the beauty of imperfection,” said the brand. Gigi, like UFC legend Ronda Rousey before her, will encourage women to use physical fitness as “an escape to drown out all of the negativity that surrounds them” and embrace the social, mental and physical benefits of exercise.

Imaginative fans often put pen to paper to depict their favorite celebrities and characters through new lenses. Some, like Instagram artist Jovan Rosario, aka @ponyy_boyy, keep it light. Rosario has amassed a 304k+ following thanks to his hyper-stylized, cartoonish renderings of Disney characters as fashion icons, the Kardashians as themselves, and angels like Selena, Amy Winehouse and Aaliyah rocking today’s trends. Others, like Tumblr artist dellbelle39, opt for more politicized subject matter, depicting Harry Potter characters as races other than white. Vladimir Serbanescu, a 17-year-old artist from Romania, illustrates popular images of celebrities, sometimes with an imaginative twist, with the intention of entertaining, not making a hard-hitting statement.
Chrissy Amphlett’s ‘I Touch Myself’ movement has partnered with The Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) to launched a new campaign starring a bunch of Aussie musos, including the likes of Montaigne, Ngaiire and Abbe May.
The campaign, in collaboration with Berlie, has also launched The Chrissy Bra, just in time for International Breast Cancer Awareness month. Chrissy Amphlett of the Divynyls passed away from breast cancer in 2013, and The Chrissy Bra aims to remind women to try to identify any potential early signs of breast cancer on their own bodies each and every day.
Other musicians joining the campaign include Catherine Britt; Liz Drummond, Christa Hughes, Abbe May, Virginia Lillye, Katy Steele, and Hannah Field and Anna Hamilton of Little May, who have all been photographed for the campaign by Tony Mott. (more…)

In an unprecedented move towards diversity (or something like it), the November issue of British Vogue — hitting stands Thursday — won’t feature a single Hadid or Jenner. Instead, women accomplished in fields outside of modeling will showcase the latest trends, from jumpsuits to all yellow everything.

You’ll see architectural historian Shumi Bose posing in a tailored Max Mara jumpsuit. Ice cream aficionado Kitty Travers makes the case for crisp, banana-yellow (Hermes) coordinates. Women’s rights advocate and charity coordinator Brita Fernandez Schmidt slays in a polka dot Michael Kors blouse. Hello Love Studio creative director and Hello Beautiful founder Jane Hutchison pulls off a trio of patterns as per Stella McCartney. Tech titan Kate Unsworth stuns in a blood red Ralph Lauren gown with a plunging neckline and pleats for days. (Take note: Very deep v’s are in.) (more…)

After she wowed us with her luminous, (sort of) makeup-free face at Balenciaga and a negligéed, Madonna-reminiscent look for Givenchy, today’s Paris Fashion Week front row will be noticeably devoid of Kim Kardashian.
Last night, the reality star-turned-mogul was robbed in her hotel room. According to French newspaper Le Parisian, five armed men broke into the building where Kardashian was staying at around 2:30 a.m. local time. After threatening the night watchman, they ascended to Kardashian’s quarters where three men stood watch as the other two held Kim at gunpoint, binding her hands and feet and locking her in her bathroom before making off with several million dollars worth of jewelry.

Our favorite fashion glossies tend to be a little predictable from time to time, often churning out covers with the same famous faces. But British Vogue opted to push the envelope with its November cover, giving actress Emily Blunt the prestige of posing for her first (and long overdue) Vogue cover shoot. Photographed by Josh Olins, The Girl on the Train actress wears a floral Dolce & Gabbana dress, which we think is perfect for a November offering.
At first, our forum members appeared to like what they saw. “This is her first Vogue cover, right? I like the cover. The pose, the colors and background lovely,” admired djowodjo30.
In the same frame of mind was Oxymore: “I love it! She looks great. It’s a good cover for November.” (more…)
