Calvin Klein Ads Recreated by the Bondi Hipsters

So, after the new images of the Calvin Klein campaign headed up by Justin Bieber went live – there was a big uproar from the people of the internet who didn’t like that Justin was posing for the iconic fashion brand. I for one was surprised they chose him, especially as Beckham was my favourite CK face, and let’s be honest that selling men’s underwear is not quite as easy as selling women’s underwear. A pair of briefs are not as sexy as a lacy pair of knickers, or even look remotely as pretty as a lacy bra. CK’s decision in choosing Justin was controversial, I’m quite sure they were aware of it and they were probably expecting additional attention because it was Justin Bieber – but at the end of the day it doesn’t phase me that much and I didn’t lose sleep over it because – life is too short. Side note – I thought the photography of the campaign was quite good but just the same as the majority of their other campaigns.

CK Beckham - Pout Perfection

If I have to chose a CK campaign I prefer, it would have to be David’s one… because it’s David Beckham. Photography and product wise, this is essentially Justin’s campaign but with a different person instead.

 

Enter, the Bondi Hipsters who have recreated the images, and along with them they said this on their Facebook page,

“We love what Justin did with the whole dead-eyed soulless look in his latest Calvin Klein catalogue… It’s quite incredible how he’s been able to summon the vacuous vacant-eyed gaze of an ice addict suffering from severe PTSD.

We know what you’re probably thinking; “what would a cherub-voiced teenaged billionaire baldy know of suffering and sorrow?”… But look at him! Juhstin Biehber is sporting a 100% genuine blank-as-fuck thousand-yard stare, and he doesn’t even have hair on his chest yet!

Either way, kudos to young Biebs. He clearly gives zero shits, and we think that this is case of groundbreaking, heroic mohdelling. That little baldy is gonna do ‘aight in the fahshion industreh. However… We’ve taken the time to re-shoot his campaign and think that with a little hair on our chests, we’ve brought something edgier and slightly more realistic to the table.

I can honestly say that I didn’t think Justin’s campaign was bad, but typical of a Calvin Klein campaign but the Bondi Hipsters certainly have a bit more originality and I think that if CK would have used them instead – they would have had a lot of new customers.

Victoria Beckahm Graces The Cover of Vogue

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.

Vogue Australia Cover September 2013

“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.

Some VB Nostalgia

Hiya Poutlings

…as any of our regular readers would be aware, I love Victoria Beckham. It all stemmed from my deep undying love for all things Spice Girls and she had to be the best out of all them because she married David Beckham. Posh & Becks, aah, equals ♥love♥ in my eyes.

I read her first autobiography years ago, its at my parents house on my old book shelf – not sure if she has got a new one out, I will have to look – in that book there were loads of pictures of her growing up and when I stumbed across these on my hard drive it clicked. Does she not look the same now that she did when she was 18??

Proof that not only is this woman amazing, business driven and successful she has discovered the fountain of youth somewhere and is not sharing that information with us!

The Beckhams will not be “Slumming It” Now They are Back in the UK

Hiya Poutlings

Beckham01

I happen to follow a lot of the UK news, through SkyNews and online…. and I also happen to love the Beckhams, so forgive my obsession and constant postings on them.

There has been a lot of speculation recently about where the Beckhams are going to make their base now that they’ve left America and are back in the UK.

Yesterday, The Mirror reported that this house in south London is where they’ll be calling home.

"Beckingham Palace" in Hertfordshire

“Beckingham Palace” in Hertfordshire

But, in fact, a top-notch source online has been speculating that Beckham boys – Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz – have all been enrolled at a fee-paying school (South African’s read PRIVATE school) near the £18 million “Beckingham Palace” in Hertfordshire that they have owned since 1999 and that’s where they’ll be resting their heads most of the time whilst in England.

I suspect that they’ll use the central London ome as a crash pad when either David or Vicky have late night events in the British Capital and need to be up early or have a place that’s handy when Vikcy needs to leave the “office” and change for an evening event.

Aaah, to be rich like them.
