Taylor Swift is Launching a Clothing Range
Taylor Swift is a jack of all trades: she’s a singer, songwriter, and even a celebrity, and she can now add clothing designer (rather) to her lengthy list of talents.
The pop star is set to launch her first women’s clothing line, which will be completely available in China. While the rest of us may not be able to receive our hands on Swifty’s clothing ( at least not yet) it’s still pretty exciting news because of her massive fan base.
Nicole Kidman Faces Nasty Backlash For The Vogue Cover
Nicole Kidman graced the cover of Vogue’s August problem in a gorgeous dress from Marc Jacobs FW15 series, but she’s been getting a lot of unfair criticism over the photo shoot, with critics saying it’s a “bad” photograph with asserting that her face has been heavily Photoshopped.
“They did not Photoshop the detail out of this amazing dress!” 1 commenter wrote. Others shared similar sentiments, writing, “Why so much photoshop. She’s one of the most beautiful girls she did not need that much photoshop” and “Unrecognisable! It seems like her daughter.”
Do you concur?

Rihanna Has a Glam New Perfume
Rihanna caught our eye earlier this week when she chose to Instagram to give the world a sneak peak into her new fragrance, Riri, that will be launched this Fall. Thus, what do you expect from this perfume? Apparently the smell is a perfect mixture of sweet, floral and fruity, and it will be available in a pretty pink bottle.
Riri is quite a change in the edgy Rogue range, but that only makes it more exciting. We are looking forward to it hitting the shelves in September so that we can check it out for ourselves.
Excited to declare my new fragrance “RiRi”… coming soon! #ThisIsRiRi
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 — such as a cupcake box tote and a banana loaf handbag. What exactly does this mean for consumers? You’re literally going to be able to satisfy your every need, from kitchen to work out gear now.
And with fashion icons like Karlie Kloss modeling from the new Fall campaign — along with a bunch of ‘creative professionals’ — it’s apparent that there is a whole lot to be excited about for the future of Kate Spade.
friday and #nationaldonutday? We’re on cloud nine!
A Modeling Agency For Transgender Models Is Opening In Los Angeles
There are a whole lot of transgender models who are changing the fashion industry — such as Andreja Pejic, Ines Rau, Isis King, and Lea T — and modeling agencies are now reacting. According to The Advocate, Thai agency, Apple Model Management, that were the primary agency to open a division for transgender versions in Thailand, are currently expanding and there is now a Los Angeles modeling agency whose sole focus is on transgender models.
“We see trans individuals as amazing,” L.A. agency director Cecilio Asuncion said. “Our strong commitment to creating them as successful models is not about quantifying or qualifying their gender. It’s never a question of if they’re women or men, it is about their passion and dedication to being the greatest possible versions they could be.”
