Heidi Klum has officially filed for divorce from Seal. Rather than try and make the transition easy for us all by dating another chocolate man, the supermodel is instead shitting all over true love once more by dating a European dude who looks like a spruced up used-car salesman. Thomas Hayo: this is not OK with us.
(SO MANY SAD FACES.)
Also giving a tried and tested formula a good bash is local label, Stylestalker.
It's vibing Kate Moss
(who else?) for its latest minxy collection
. Significantly, there are also hair curlers.
An Australian born rapper has launched the world's first shoppable music video. It's for SSENSE, an online fashion retailer you've most likely heard of. Unlike its starlet, Iggy Azalea, who is huge in the States but still a total nobody back home.
Another Aussie export, Codie Young, is the face of Marc Jacobs' latest perfume, Dot. It smells like everything under the sun and, much more importantly, has a fragrance bottle that LOOKS LIKE A LADYBUG. (It will make squillions.)
Madonna also has a new perfume out. Its black and white advertisement has a soundtrack laden with more synthesisers than the entire excruciating 10 years of the 80s put together.
RIP, Silver Duchess. The first editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia, Sheila Scotter, thas died at the ripe old age of 91. She was famous for her journalism talents and wardrobe comprised purely of amazing black and white clothes.
The eighth season of Australia's Next Top Model has been shelved for 2012 after its executives couldn't find it a new host/bribe Miranda Kerr to leave Orlando and the baby for a pay TV show that has so far only delivered one top model (at best). Maybe if they import some Tyra attitude...
Requisite Posh Spice post
: "bronzing expert" Nichola Joss
has credited Victoria Beckham
with bringing back fake tan. The things you learn these days.
Meanwhile, VB's hubby, David Beckham, has almost had his dick banned from public. Luckily, UK watchdog, the Advertising Standards Authority, has deemed his H&M adverts "inoffensive". The Brits can now safely go back to staring at his monstrous crotch and pretending they're just really interested in the underwear.
Not so lucky is American Apparel
. The ASA has gone puritanical on the soft-porn friendly retailer; banning a bunch of its ads that show "breasts and buttocks" (T&A). To be honest, it really was only a matter of time
Michael Pitt is the new face of Prada. He's still looks far too much like a poor man's Leonardo DiCaprio/is generally just a bit creepy looking, but the resulting video is schmick and even a little steamy.
GASP! Supermodels Without Photoshop
! It's the more refined and self-satisfied older sister of Stars Without Makeup. Except for the lack of "things" requiring said Photoshop is enough to drive any (in)sane woman to a tub of double-chocolate ice-cream.
More unbelievable is speakers made from sneakers
And lastly: hand models. They actually exist outside of David Duchovny in Zoolander.
