Aussie model Laura Wells has gone nude in a beach shoot on Sydney’s Bronte Beach with photographer Art Provocative.

Although the size-14 model bares all for the images, appearing confident as she floats through the water, walks to shore and lies on the sand naked, she admits she wasn’t 100 per cent happy with her body when the shoot took place “a little while ago”. 

“Looking back now I think how ridiculous it was to think like that. One thing I will never do is allow how I perceive my body to stop me from doing or achieving things,” she explained on Instagram. (more…)

Michelle Bridges Confirms She’s Given Birth to a Baby Boy, Not a Girl

Michelle Bridges has given birth to a baby boy over the weekend, after it was widely reported overnight that she had a baby girl.

“We are thrilled to welcome our little boy into the world, Axel Bridges Willis born 19/12/15. Healthy and happy,” Michelle confirmed on social media this morning.

Reports of Michelle’s new arrival started circling after Michelle’s partner and baby daddy, fellow TBL trainer Steve “Commando” Willis, was spotted at Sydney’s Randwick hospital during the last couple of days. 

The Daily Telegraph reported that Michelle wouldn’t be sharing any details due to an exclusive magazine deal, as told by her management. (more…)

Kim Kardashian’s ‘Kimoji’ Line Includes a Butt (Obvs), Middle Finger and Pregnant Kim Emoji



A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian added another layer to her never-ending tribute to herself: Kimoji. The reality star’s first emoji app celebrates all things Kim. Because of course it does.

There’s an emoji of Kim taking a selfie, an emoji of her famous derrière and even an emoji of her crying face. The latter is probably our favorite. You can also find a middle finger emoji, replete with a wedding ring. Kim hinted at her emoji plans in Rolling Stone, saying, “I wanted to do really fun, different Emojis that you don’t see on your phone.” We also should have seen it coming given the family of emojis she posted to celebrate the birth of Saint West.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the sisters followed with their own emoji apps (look at their other app rollout). Where’s the plastic surgery emoji?

Not Everyone Is Happy With France’s Law Banning Excessively Thin Models

Not everyone is pleased with the new French law banning excessively thin models. The French government is putting legislation in place that will require models to produce a medical certificate with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18 or over. Fashion houses and agencies that fail to adhere to the law may face six months in prison or a fine of 75,000 euros (about $81,000). 

Several high-profile names in the French fashion industry have taken issue with the law, according to WWD. Isabelle Saint-Félix, the general secretary of Synam, France’s union of model agencies, said international models shouldn’t have to contend with “a different system for different countries.” Paris-based stylist Simon Gensowski said, “Rather than body-shaming women with eating disorders, it would have been wise to reconsider current sample sizes.” (more…)

Watch Taylor Swift Prep Her Squad Before 1989 Tour Appearance

How does one prepare to make a guest appearance on Taylor Swift’s famously star-studded 1989 tour? Does she test your knowledge of her song lyrics? Make you perform for her cats while she judges your dance moves American Idol style? Apparently, none of the above according to a new video Karlie Kloss shared on YouTube.

In the rare behind-the-scenes look at Taylor’s tour, the pop star is actually warm, thoughtful and hilarious as she preps models like Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and more for their big moment onstage. She gives them priceless tips to avoid falling and shows them exactly where to stand by recreating the stage using towels, floss and nail polish. We can only imagine how amazing (and effective) the prep session for the Bad Blood video must have been.

Kendall Jenner Just Shot Her Best Cover Yet for Vogue Brazil (Forum Buzz)

Following in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Kendall Jenner has scored the cover of Vogue Brazil. It was only a matter of time, after Kendall’s fellow peer Gigi Hadid seems to be doing quite alright for herself too by currently fronting British Vogue. To our amazement, the Estée Lauder ambassador photographed wonderfully, wearing Christian Dior before the lens of Russell James. Flashing a warm, friendly and energetic smile, a joyful Kendall plays with her dark mane (with a little help from a wind machine) on the inviting new cover, which has the majority of us pleasantly surprised.
