Tilda Swinton Is GQ’s Woman of the Year

We’ve gotta give GQ some props. The magazine has announced its Woman of the Year for 2014 and it’s not a Kardashian-Jenner or your typical blushing movie starlet barely out of her 20s.

The lad mag has chosen Tilda Swinton for the honor, and rightly so. If you couldn’t detect the woman’s inherent awesomeness (a near-impossible feat), the article confirms just how naturally cool The Grand Budapest Hotel actress is IRL. She was a professional gambler, betting on horses. She smells like “wildflowers and wood smoke.” She makes you eat haggis and then finishes the rest when you can’t take any more. 

There are no topless photos here, no boudoir booty shots with silken sheets covering her nether regions. Tilda is in full force, graceful, angular, androgynous — and not looking at all like a woman who’s lived 54 years. The shots are artistic, arresting portraits of the woman whose eyes are both haunting and gentle at the same time.

The Iconic Launches Free Same-Evening Delivery For Christmas

TheIconic-portraitFollowing the launch of its Saturday delivery service last month, The Iconic is now getting into the Christmas spirit by offering free same-evening delivery over the holiday season.

The Iconic is also extending its love to Brisbane and Adelaide metro areas for the holiday period, on top of the usual Sydney and Melbourne markets, which benefit from the 3-hour delivery all year round. Finally.

Not only will you be thankful for the quick turnaround when it comes to last-minute presents, you’ll also be happy to get our hands on stylish pieces for the staff parties, events and Sunday lunches which fill our calendar as the year draws to an end.

All you have to do is make your order by 11.30 am on weekdays to make the cut, and you’ll receive your goods that very evening. With the service already in full force, you can jump on The Iconic now to enjoy the offer.

Dannii Minogue Gets Catty to Raise Skin Cancer Prevention Awareness

Target designer Dannii Minogue has painted herself in bold leopard spots to raise awareness for skin cancer prevention, in a short video campaign for Invisible Zinc and Melanoma Institute Australia.

The video, titled “Some Spots Can Be Dangerous”, plays on the idea that while a leopard is unable to change its spots, we’re able to change our dangerous freckles and moles with simple skin checks over summer. “Australia has the world’s highest incidence of melanoma, so, please, get your spots checked,” Danni urges in the clip.

With Australia responsible for 75 per cent of all skin cancer deaths, Dannii knew this campaign was one she needed to be involved in. “When presented with these figures, along with the understanding that early detection could be lifesaving, I wanted to be part of this vitally important campaign,” she says.

For every share of the video, Invisible Inc is donating $1 to Melanoma Institute Australia, which pioneers vital research, essential treatment programs, improved patient options, and, hopefully, a cure. Watch the video for yourself below, and get sharing.
