Taylor Swift is Launching a Clothing Range
Taylor Swift is a jack of all trades: she’s a singer, songwriter, and even an actress, and she can now add clothing designer (kinda) to her long list of talents.
The pop star is set to launch her first women’s clothing line, which will be exclusively available in China. While the rest of us will not be able to get our hands on Swifty’s clothing (at least not yet) it’s still pretty exciting news for her massive fan base.
Nicole Kidman Faces Nasty Backlash For Her Vogue Cover
Nicole Kidman graced the cover of Vogue’s August issue in a stunning gown from Marc Jacobs FW15 collection, but she’s been getting a lot of unfair criticism over the photo shoot, with critics saying it’s a “bad” photo with claiming that her face has been heavily Photoshopped.
“At least they didn’t Photoshop the detail from that amazing dress!” One commenter wrote. Others shared similar sentiments, writing, “Why so much photoshop. She is one of the most beautiful women she didn’t need that much photoshop” and “Unrecognisable! It looks like her daughter.”

Rihanna Has a Glam New Perfume
Rihanna caught our eye earlier this week when she took to Instagram to give the world a sneak peak into her new fragrance, Riri, which will be launched this Fall. So, what can you expect from this perfume? Apparently the smell is a perfect mixture of sweet, fruity and floral, and it will be available in a pretty pink bottle.
Riri is quite a change from her edgy Rogue range, but that only makes it more exciting. We’re looking forward to it hitting the shelves in September so that we can try it out for ourselves.
Kate Spade is Expanding Their Empire
Luxury American brand Kate Spade is expanding its range to include sleepwear, childrenswear, athleisure and even kitchen accessories, the brand revealed on Monday.
Kate Spade & Co’s exciting plans for expansion will also feature a dessert themed collaboration with Magnolia Bakery – including a cupcake box tote and a banana pudding tote. What does this mean for consumers? You’re literally going to be able to fulfill your every need, from kitchen to workout gear now.
And with style icons like Karlie Kloss modeling in the brand’s Fall campaign – alongside a group of ‘creative professionals’ – it’s clear that there is a lot to be excited about for the future of Kate Spade.
A Modeling Agency For Transgender Models Is Opening In Los Angeles
There are a lot of transgender models who are changing the fashion industry – including Andreja Pejic, Ines Rau, Isis King, and Lea T – and modeling agencies are now reacting. According to The Advocate, Thai agency, Apple Model Management, who were the first agency to open a division for transgender models in Thailand, are now expanding and there is now a Los Angeles modeling agency whose sole focus is on transgender models.
“We see trans individuals as beautiful,” L.A. agency director Cecilio Asuncion said. “Our strong commitment to developing them as successful models is never about quantifying or qualifying their gender. It’s never a question of if they are women or men, it’s about their passion and commitment to being the best possible models they can be.”
