New Pirelli Calendar To Have Fetish Theme And Feature Plus-Size Model – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 25 July 2014

New Pirelli Calendar To Have Fetish Theme And Feature Plus-Size Model – the 2015 edition of the world’s most famous calendar will have some unique features as it is the first time in its 50-year existence that Pirelli will have featured a plus-size model.

The calendar also promises to be a bit more steamy than normal as former Vogue Paris chief editor Carine Roitfeld, who is behind the styling this year, has gone for a fetish theme with lots of latex clothing on show.

The plus-size model featured in the 2015 calendar is 29-year old Candice Huffine who has been seen in a plus-size fashion special before when she joined models Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn on the cover of Vogue Italia’s special “Curvy” issue in 2011.

Incidentally if you get the chance to meet Candice then you should know that she is not a fan of the term plus-size model: ‘I understand its existence, but I personally don’t use the term in my private life; I prefer curvy.’

Joining Candice in this year’s Pirelli calendar are Adrianna Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana, Sasha Luss, Anna Ewers, Carolyn Murphy, Cameron Russell, Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson and Joan Smalls.

Although the fetish clothing is not to everyone’s taste it seems that one of the models was converted during the shoot with Gigi Hadid saying: ‘I’m wearing all latex in one shot, which is very cool. I’ve never worn latex before but everyone’s, like, telling me that it would suck because you get all sweaty and you can’t breathe. But I really like it and now I want latex leggings.’

The Pirelli calendar has always had something of an air of mystery as it is not available to buy either online or from a shop and it is sent out to a specially selected group of people. Nobody knows how to get on that list although if you aren’t very famous then selling plenty of Pirelli tyres is thought to give you a good chance of getting your hands on a calendar. This is why issues of the calendar often reach high prices when they come   up for sale on sites like eBay.

As well as the rarity value of the Pirelli calendar another thing that sets it apart from other calendars is the high quality of models who have featured on its glossy pages. Former Pirelli calendar girls include: Naomi Campbell, Sienna Miller, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, Mila Jovovich, Heidi Klum, Mena Suvari, Miranda Kerr and Sophia Loren. Sophia Loren was actually the oldest person to appear in a Pirelli calendar when she posed for it back in 2007 at the age of 71-years old.

This year’s Pirelli calendar which has been shot by top fashion photographer Steven Meisel is going to be previewed in November.If you are on the list you will be getting a special delivery but for the rest of us it will be a wait for the fashion magazines to show us what we are missing.

Curvy Aussie Model Robyn Lawley To Appear In Sports Ilustrated – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 13 May 2014

Curvy plus-size model Robyn Lawley in nude photoCurvy Aussie Model Robyn Lawley To Appear In Sports Illustrated – the sexy Australian model looks likely to appear in the next issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition after being seen at a casting session in New York.

Robyn is often described as a “plus-size model” a term that she hates. As you can see from the photo shown here she looks in great shape and apart from those in the fashion industry there are few people who would describe a UK size 12 as plus-size. When you take into account that Robyn is 6’2″ tall then you start to get a better picture of the model.

She is probably best-known so far for her covers for Vogue Italia as well as being the first plus-size model to appear in Vogue Australia. All that might change however if she gets herself a gig in the SI Swimsuit Issue for 2015 as it can be a massive launching pad for a model.

Robyn is seen as an inspiration by many other women who see fashion as a world where only the very skinny models have seemed to get much exposure. As Robyn herself has voiced in a recent magazine feature “You don’t have to be skinny or small to be beautiful”. Finally it appears that fashion designers, features editors and photographers are listening as Robyn has been getting far more magazine covers and features of late. She has been a model for Chantelle lingerie for some time and the range looks to be doing well, no doubt in part due to the fact that Robyn’s natural curves appeal to both the women wearing the lingerie and the men who buy it for them.

Rihanna Wears See-Through Top To Basketball Game – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 26 April 2014

Rihanna shows nipples in white see-through topRihanna Wears See-Through Top To Basketball Game – the singer had plenty of people looking away from the basketball action at a Brooklyn Nets game as she sat in the front row wearing a see-through white top with no bra.

We all know that she is not worried about showing off her body and in recent months she has made far more headlines for what she is, or rather what she isn’t, wearing than she has for her music.

In fact just a couple of days ago she featured in a sexy topless photo spread in Vogue Brazil. As well as appearing in the May edition of the Brazil version of the publication Rihanna also appeared in the American version of the fashion mag back in March this year. The Brazilian photo feature shows the singer nude apart from some vintage styled high-waisted satin knickers.

The photos for Vogue Brazil were believed to have been taken in January this year but to celebrate the release of some of the photos Rihanna also posted some informal shots on Instagram of her time on the fashion shoot. As you would expect from the 26-year old there was a selection of topless shots to choose from. She accompanied the photos with this message ‘We shot this entire shoot in Brazil with my lover boy @teamvivanco,’ tagging the photographer Mariano Vivanco. Rihanna added: ‘Brazil I miss you already#VOGUE #Brazil @voguebrasil.’ Read the rest of this entry »

Kendall Jenner Causes Controversy Wearing See-Through Top During NYFW – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 14 February 2014

18 year old Kendall Jenner showing nipples in see-through top during New York Fashion WeekKendall Jenner Causes Controversy Wearing See-Through Top During NYFW – young Kardashian clan member Kendall Jenner caused something of a stir as she wore a see-through top during a New York Fashion Week show.

18-year old Kendall had a mixed reaction to her appearance as a top-end fashion model for Marc Jacobs during his show. As she made her debut for Jacobs in a tight-fitting sheer brown top which was matched with a pair of cropped brown and cream trousers and brown boots some were not impressed by her revealing outfit brandishing her a skank on several social media sites.

Others seemed to take a much different view as they praised her for her transformation into a sophisticated runway model complete with a new dark bob.

After the negative comments Kendall’s big sister Khloe quickly took to Twitter to defend her little sister and went on something of a rant herself ending with a final tweet saying basic bitches not wanted, a comment retweeted by Kendall.

It seems that Kendall has found herself a new career as a fashion model with her appearance modelling at the Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2014 Show at the Lexington Avenue Armoury immediately followed by a feature in  Vogue which showed off her versatility with very varying looks in outfits from designers such as Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta.

There are not many 18-year olds who find themselves with a feature in the world’s top fashion publication during New York Fashion Week. Having said that how many other 18-year old girls have a Twitter following of over 7m and an Instagram following of almost 9m?

Jennifer Aniston Has A Brazilian That Goes Wrong – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 6 November 2013

Jennifer Aniston - new Rebel Cut hair styleJennifer Aniston Has A Brazilian That Goes Wrong – the 44-year old actress has been explaining to Elle UK that a Brazilian hair treatment was the reason she has taken 6 inches off her hair with a new cut.

Jennifer said to the mag that she had to go for the new much shorter style as she had ‘a Brazilian and my hair did not react really well to it.’

The Brazilian hair treatment has got a lot of press after it was written that the treatment promised straight shiny hair that would keep that way for months. Unfortunately there appears to be a problem because as well as the keratin in the product there seems to also be formaldehyde, possibly in a quite dangerously high concentration. Now you may have come across the word formaldehyde before but forgotten where, we will remind you that it is  best-known for its use in embalming bodies. Doesn’t make anyone think of the salon really does it?

To add to the reasons you might not wish to go for the Brazilian keratin/formaldehyde treatment you can also add in the fact that studies in the US have shown formaldehyde is likely to cause cancer.

Jennifer had talked to Vogue before the Elle UK interview was published and said to them that the reason behind her new hair style was the fact that she had grown bored with her hair. Sounds like that might not have been true. Read the rest of this entry »

Jourdan Dunn nipples showing through silky Topshop topTopshop Unique At London Fashion Week – a place on the front row at the Topshop Unique show looks like the hottest ticket at this year’s London Fashion Week.

We could easily have guessed three of those taking front row seats as Kate Moss, supermodel royalty indeed,  sat between Topshop owner Sir Phillip Green and his son Brandon. It was the lady sat the other side of Sir Phillip that grabbed most of the attention however as the supremo of world fashion comment Anna Wintour from American Vogue surprised many people as she took her seat.

For a fairly mainstream fashion line Topshop seems to have moved to the front of the line for many people during London Fashion Week.

The new collection on show has got some very positive reviews from fashion mags, newspaper columns and online fashion bloggers.

The Topshop Unique collection itself had plenty of silk items and the most prominent colour in the collection was blue. The other big theme was plenty of tops and dresses with either low backs or indeed no-backs. Read the rest of this entry »
