She doesn’t appear awkward, neither miserable, she just looks wow. She still has the same facial expression but the campaign photographer Craig McDean knows how to make her look amazing.

What do you think?

Bentley to Launch a Line of Handbags

Bentley Designer Handbags to be Launched Oct 2013Bentley is a name which tugs upon the heart strings of luxury and sophistication in motor vehicles and now, in handbags too. The British car manufacturer has announced a line of limited edition handbags, the first two models will be available in October 2013.

Has the brand decided to seek a different target market from their norm? Or is the brand trying to promote themselves with more upscale style with the limited edition line of handbags like they did when they partnered with Luxury Living Group for their interior decoration collection or the collaboration with Lalique for the Bentley perfume; all of which seem to have slowly faded into the background to be outshone by the luxury vehicles.

Vicky Beckham looks as stylish as always as she appears on the cover of Vogue Australia September 2013. The designer dishes on her husband, David, what its like to Vicky B and her everyday life and her first fashion collection presentation.

“Everyone would file in and act so inscrutable. I’d think, ‘Um, did anyone like it?’ No one would say anything, so I’d gabble to fill the embarrassing silence – even to the Japanese, who didn’t understand a word I was saying.”

Well, despite the silence to begin with Victoria has been given the ultimate praise from celebrities who have chosen to wear her designs. The ten piece line of midi length dresses was fit for businesswomen as well as A-listers and would take the wearers from day to night. From then on she made it clear that she is not going to stop anytime soon presenting one collection after another in New York every season and gaining an extensive clientele.Vogue China Cover June 2013

She also appeared on the cover of Vogue China in August 2013 and scooped The Glamour Women of the Year award in Jyne. She’s launched an e-commerce site with the Icon collection and a new pre-fall 2013 line of handbags. Besides the business she has also got herself the cutest bulldog, called Coco Beckham.

Can this woman do no wrong in my eyes? Yes! But, just look at her! Aah, *swoon* I think the latest glossy covers show her maturity, but she looks elegant.

Roxy Swimwear Promo Blasted as ‘Sexplotation’

Dearest Poutlings,

Roxy swimwear recently had a promotional trailer for the Roxy Pro Biarritz 2013, which every year for the last 8 years Roxy has brought together the world’s best women surfers to Biarritz for an original blend of elite surfing and current music. The teaser trailer leading up to announcing who will be joining the Roxy team entitled #WhoAmIJustGuess has caused quite a huge stir in the media, but for what reason – who knows!!

Watch the teaser trailer here:

OR if you cannot watch, it starts off with a  woman rolling of bed in her underwear, proceeding to put on an oversize white button down blouse which she then drops to the floor to get in the shower… it follows her grab her board and drive to the beach where so puts on a pink Roxy rash guard, and then ends with her paddling out in the ocean. You never see her face but you become quite acquainted with her bum, which she is fortunately blessed to have a good looking one.

The Guardian’s Tia Calvo labelled it a “voyeuristic semi soft-core porn clip,” saying it was offensive because it “is representing a professional sport which has been fighting a long and on going battle for gender equality.”

Firstly, GET A GOD DAMN LIFE. There is NO gender inequality, in fact if a same teaser trailer was released for Quicksilver, for example, with only a male surfer, and focussed on his arse and abs, rather than a mystery woman’s butt and bare back, I can guarantee you it would not be as visually appealing nor “sexist” and secondly, sex sells as do attractive bodies. This woman is a talented, in more than one aspect, and that is what a professional surfers figure looks like.

I back up Roxy 110% in this instance, and this is what they addressed the public backlash on their Facebook page saying:

“Woman are complex and multi-dimensional. To ignore this fact is to ignore who we truly are. We believe all athletes are naturally beautiful, in and out of the water. You certainly don’t have to be sexy to be an athlete, & we also believe it’s not wrong to be an athlete and to be sexy, if you choose to be.”

The mystery woman was later announced to be Stephanie Gilmore, and so sue her, she’s hot. I’m pretty sure she was stoked to be featured on such a worldwide coverage – OTHERWISE she wouldn’t of let it happen!

People need to calm the hell down and get on with life, and if you have a problem with this – how do you embrace the media daily? There is FAR worse things going on that constitute ‘sexplotation’.

Here is the official unveiling of Stephanie Gilmore…
