Obama has fashion behind him
It's summer. This means model Marloes Horst is swimming in the Maldives. As she does. 

A very serious survey commissioned by the International Lingerie Fair taking place in Paris next week has found that French women are no longer as fond of self-inflicted wedgies as they used to be. Today, only one in four of them own a G-string, compared to 30% in 2008. 

Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg has followed in Monica Lewinsky's footsteps by making her mark on fashion at the Whitehouse. She's created a patriotic tote in honour of Barack Obama.

In: Democrats: Out: Republicans (and also hopefully those gross wedged heels everybody is wearing). Designers like Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang joined Furstenberg in designing for Obama as part of US Vogue editor Anna Wintour's campaign for his re-election. And you thought the fashion industry was bi-partisan...

James Franco is 98% set to play the role of another gay dead icon: fashion, culture and Patti Smith photographer/ex-husband Robert Mapplethorpe. Anyways, here's a fan video which also breaks all barriers of sexual persuasion.

Ex-model and ANTM judge Charlotte Dawson is dancing on the grave of a gossip columnist from NZ tabloid Herald on Sunday, Rachel Glucina. "The bully culture removed at last #dingdong," tweeted Dawson on her position's sudden job opening. Glucina pairs leopard print with Chanel handbags, which is all you really need to know about her to make a judgement call.

Charlotte's also been cast on the latest Celebrity Apprentice alongside a bunch of flailing B-grade stars like the Hoff, Dicko, and Patti Newton. You know your career has plateaued when... (Please don't sue us, Ms Dawson, we're a bit scared of you.)

American Apparel is rummaging through boxes. For once this isn't a euphemism for its founder being involved in an underage sex scandal. Here's the brand's latest video shot in a downtown LA sunglasses warehouse.  

Britain's Royal Ascot has enacted the fashion equivalent of a Human Rights Convention by banning fascinators in its royal enclosure, with "a headpiece which has a base of four inches or more in diameter acceptable as an alternative to a hat". Yes, clearly ridiculous, but we say it's a win for humankind regardless. 

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs should probably have a Human Rights Convention written in his honour for reals. He's been ordering his minions to glue shoes to the soles of models' feet so they don't fall over on the runway.

So... Prada is awesome. The luxury label recently enlisted actor/model/slashies like Tim Roth, Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, and Adrien Brody for its menswear's parade.

Despite the runway awesomeness, Prada's namesake is still a little bit sadface. Designer Miuccia Prada thinks the upcoming NY Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute display in her honour is too "formal" and needs to be, like, three times more "playful". Somebody will probably have foamy latte thrown at them over this.

Miuccia has also signed actress Mia Wasikowsa the new face of Miu Miu and by proxy has made her the new face of Betty from Mad Men.

Rihannon is looking pretty minxy and African-American in her latest denim and lingerie campaign for Armani. Meanwhile, she's white-facing it (again) for her new album cover, making her the subject of outraged people who don't have much else to do with their time.

Brazil's wider media is also getting outraged over skin colour due to selective runway choices. Only a handful of the models who walked at its recent fashion week were black, despite more than half of the population being of African ancestry.

Less racist: Liv Tyler. She's wearing black lipstick. It was designed for her by Givenchy's head of cosmetics. (Yes, whole news reports are dedicated to this stuff like this these days.)

Next week a pop up store in Sydney is holding a OFWGKTA pop up on Oxford St. (See the gallery for more info.) You could look like a Cali hip hop collective in those clothes...

Australian model Bambi has a blog! It's for local shoe brand Tony Bianco!! She writes about traveling and footwear and being in love!!! And all of her writing is really exciting!!!!!!!!!

Another day, another graffiti artist fashion collaboration. Ears has followed Anthony Lister in producing a sunglasses collection with Colab

And lastly: leopard print, burnt orange, and curtains-cum-shirts. Yup. Here's a new video for General Pants
