Miley Cyrus Looks Unrecognisable in W Magazine

Miley Cyrus covers the new issue of W Magazine, looking more like a mixture of Lady Gaga mixed with a hint of Donatella Versace with bleached eyebrows and longer hair.Miley Covers W Magazine

She was interviewed by Ronan Farrow and their discussion seemed to sum up some Miley-esque media headlines – weed and dating and some deeper thoughts on the world, children and the environment for example. Despite the overly American-ised English, with lots of likes it does sound like she is actually growing up a bit. I do give this chick props, she has a lot of bad media attention and she genuinely doesn’t seem to care which is in a way, admirable. She also happens to flash her nipple in one of the pictures which everyone has busted their own tit about online, but seriously, who really cares?

MODEL ALERT : Julia Nobis

Heya Poutlings!

I love sharing with you some of the fantastic models I think are real ROLE MODELS to anyone that is aspiring to be the best model they can be… and let’s be clear, I’m talking about REAL modeling, not just looking shit hot to be some masturbation material for teenage boys and balding men! Actually, making a living from modeling, people paying you to do it… You know what I mean, right? Good. Let’s continue….

Last time, I introduced Anja Rubik, who is no less than amazing and such a HUGE name in the industry. Today, I present a model who is young, relatively new to the industry compared to Anja, but I think we haven’t seen the apex of this particular models career to date.


Julia Nobis is no doubt a rising star. She was only discovered in 2009.She has a unique look with a particular strong appearance. She’s known for playing guitar backstage before a show.


Julia started modeling locally, in Australia, at the age of 16.

Her first time on an international catwalks was during CALVIN KLEIN fall 2010 in New York and she exclusively walked only for them.


The next step on Julia’s modeling career was during the same season but this time on the runways of London Fashion Week. She opened the fall TOPSHOP in London and also closed the RICHARD NICOLL show. During her time in London she got invites to Milan and Paris and she ended up walking for PRADA, DOLCE & GABANA, LOUIS VUITTON, VALENTINO, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA and MIU MIU Fall fashion shows and as you can imagine she became well known as one of the best newcomers into the fashion world to date.

Later on in 2010 she walked for her first couture show, VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE in Paris.

2011 Spring fashion shows she opened and closed the POENZA SCHOULER fashion show and also walked for BURBERRY, ALEXANDER WANG, LOUIS VUITTON, CHANEL and BALENCIAGA runways. She also presented looks at the spring CHANEL and ELIE SAAB couture fashion shows.


During Spring 2012, FASHIONTV’s FIRST FACE COUNTDOWN featured Julia Nobis as number 3. She was beat by Anja Rubik and Amyeline Valade.

Currently, Julia has only been on one fashion magazine cover, Australian Vogue featured her in 2011 where she posed for the photographer Kai Z Feng.

She has appeared in a number of editorials for British and Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused, Interview and W Magazine.

What I particulary love about this model is that she lives an alternative lifestyle, she has broken the international stereotype of MODEL! Julia is really into martial arts, some of her favourite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage and Rage Against the Machine. She has the perfect mix in her book of “alternative” or should I say edgy shots combined with standard commerical and high fashion couture! The proof is in this models book, and I think she’s got it nailed. Don’t you??

So, models and models-in-training, are you inspired?

The TomKat Split

Hello Pouters!

So, I’m sure you were all just as shocked at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ split as I was *insert sarcastic laugh here*, and wondered what could have possibly been the final nail in the coffin for their disaster of a marriage to begin with.

According to sources, Katie filed for divorce on account of Suri’s future and is the cause for “irreconcilable differences” . “This is not what Katie wants for Suri and she has told her attorneys that Tom was unmovable on the issue. This divorce has nothing to do with money or anything else. It’s all about her little girl’s future,” said a source.

In all honesty, the pairing has been a disaster from the start. It all began when Katie was asked in an interview with Seventeen Magazine who her dream man was and she told them it was Tom Cruise. They were so madly in love when they met that Tom was jumping on Oprah’s couch and Katie was all gushy.  “I’ve found the man of my dreams,” she told W magazine at one stage even, “From the moment I met him, it just felt like I’d known him forever. I was blown away. He’s the most incredible man. He’s so generous and kind, and he helps so many people, and, um, he makes me laugh like I’ve never laughed, and he’s a great friend.”

It’s so sad actually that only after 5 years, they are history, but alas, you can’t live in a fairytale forever, especially if that fairytale includes weird Scientology rituals and a psycho for a husband.

 There are some rumours that Katie had signed a “contract” with the Church of Scientology when she got married to Tom that bounded her to him for 5 years.  Apparently their marriage was a minimum five-year contract, according to Andrew Morton (the guy who wrote Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography). Katie allegedly received $3 million for every year of service, in addition to big bonuses for every child she gave birth to. Originally, Katie was supposed to give birth to “an heir and a spare.”


I don’t know how the girl could set herself up for something like that in the first place, but if it is in fact true it must have been pure hell!

Thin, haggard and (after the divorce was finalised) smiling again.

According to PerezHilton.com:

Katie saw what happened when Tom and Nicole Kidman divorced — and there’s NO way she’s letting Tom solely raise Suri, like he did with his and Nicole’s adopted kids, Bella and Connor!

“Bella and Connor are devoted to their father and Scientology, and Katie saw this firsthand, and this is one of the reasons she filed for sole custody. Katie will not be relegated to a secondary role in her daughter’s life, period, and she is prepared to fight Tom in court. Katie isn’t going to back down, and she will do whatever it takes to ensure that she raises Suri herself.”

Good for her!

So alas, the madness that is TomKat is over and I’m sure nobody is happier than Katie Holmes herself!

Have a super fab Thursday further my pouting dearies!

Kristen Stewart Pulls a 60’s Glamour Wow

Plain, awkward and boring are only a few words girls around the world have been known to call Kristen Stewart and I’m sure it’s not just because they’re jealous of her snogging Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in the famous Twilight movies either. So when I saw the photoshoot she did for W magazine, I think my jaw fell on the floor. Who’d have known simple Stewart could look so stunning if she wanted to? It’s almost like she’d been bit by a vampire…(mind the pun hehe)…

The Daily Mail was even quoted as saying; “The 21-year-old puts on her best moody face in the pictures–something Kristen is quite adept at. But with her alluring dramatic eye make-up and Sixties-style bouffant hair, Stewart brings a certain sexiness to her sullen stares.” Sounds like a compliment to me!
