Amazon Launches Ethical Home Essentials Range

Amazon is getting into the sustainable market with the launch of a new line of ethical home products. The e-tailer is starting with baby wipes, but will soon debut Amazon Elements in full. The main feature of Amazon Elements products is that you can scan them with your smartphone in order to see information about where and how the product was sourced. 

Word is Amazon is trying to compete with Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company, which has a similar business model and has managed to raise over $120 million in funding. So far, Amazon Elements’ only products are diapers and the aforementioned wipes, which are a bit pricier than other, less “ethical” options. TechCrunch hypothesizes Amazon will also offer a range of healthy juices, based on a category it found under the site’s Elements heading. 

Amazon Elements will only be available to Amazon Prime customers, so if you were planning on getting environmentally-friendly diapers for your little one, we hope that you’ve got the coins to shill out for a membership. 

Amazon will be slowly releasing more products as time goes on, so it will be interesting to see how the line develops. For now, you can shop the products via the website.

Forum members are ecstatic with the outcome of the shoot. “Very happy to see Magdalena, quite unexpected,” raved KateTheGreatest.

“Wow, she looks stunning. The best RUSSH cover ever…” complimented a more than impressed GIVENCHYlover.

Cosmic Voices also showed some love for the cover and expressed, “Wow, utterly stunning cover!”

“Might be the best I’ve ever seen her!” declared marsnoop2.

“Gorgeous cover. Magda looks amazing. It’s hard to believe she’s 30,” agreed MyNameIs.

Also showing enthusiasm was atomicblue: “Color me impressed. I’m absolutely buying this issue. It’s funny because it’s such a simple cover and spread but it’s all executed so elegantly. Everything looks effortless and Magdalena’s old enough to really have that complexity about her that can carry something as minimal as this.”

“Her beauty is everything. Magda looks fantastic. I like this simple cover and all editorial,” noted an impressed narcyza.

Chanel’s Pre-Fall Caught on Tape!

All hail the technology gods. In case you missed Chanel’s epic Austrian homage earlier this week for its Métiers d’Art 2014/15 collection, the brand released this little video on Twitter this morning, complete with a haunting Euro-techie soundtrack bouncing off the Rococo walls and marbled floors. We guarantee it will be the best 19-plus minutes of your day.

Press play and you’ll be able to peep everything from the gilded 18th century castle where the show took place to the opulent centerpieces comprised of towering fruit displays and antique candelabras. But of course, a Chanel show is nothing without the clothes. The close-ups are key, letting viewers in on the detail of feathered hemlines and pearlized cuffs, Edelweiss embroidery and bejeweled collars. Think of it as an early Christmas present.

Watch: Kate Moss Makes a Cameo in ‘The Boy in the Dress’ Special

Kate Moss is lending her talents to a new BBC holiday film, The Boy in the Dress, a TV version of the David Walliams book. The comedy charts the experience of a young boy (played by Billy Kennedy) who loves to wear dresses (and wigs!) and gets expelled from school for it. 

Kate makes her cameo in the main character’s dream sequence, in which she sports a red Vivienne Westwood gown. Walliams, a personal friend of the model (and Lara Stone’s hubby), reportedly asked Moss specifically to appear in the film.

The Boy in the Dress will air on BBC December 26, or as the Brits like to call it, Boxing Day. Watch Kate in the advert for the film above.

Ruby Rose Won’t Be Reckoned with as Nylon Singapore’s December Cover Girl

Ruby Rose is Nylon Singapore‘s latest cover girl, and, trust us, after seeing this headshot, you’ll never even think about messing with this chick.

The metallic chains, draping from her military-style hat, powerfully frame her heavily made up raccoon eyes, with her icy-blonde bob barely peeping out from under the cap. She wears a zipper-adorned plaid number which seems to be very much her style, but the issue has more pressing topics than wardrobe to talk to Ruby about.

The cover’s blurb reads “Ruby Rose finally breaks free” (which could be a little difficult due to the chained headwear she’s wearing), with Nylon Singapore revealing that the DJ/model/VJ/designer discusses her thoughts on gender stereotypes, lover-girl Phoebe Dahl, and the entertainment world inside the issue.

We all know Ruby’s pretty PDA on how she feels about her other half, and we’re pretty up to date on certain gender stereotypes which drive her up the wall, but if you’re interested in the media side of things then the issue is available now. Ruby joins the ranks of Sophia Wesbter, Suki Waterhouse and Taylor Momsen, who have preceded her as Nylon Singapore‘s cover girl.
