YSL Opium AD is Eighth most Complained About


Yves Saint Laurent's infamous Opium advert featuring a naked Sophie Dahl is the eighth most complained about advert in the last 50 years.

The infamous Yves Saint Laurent Opium perfume advert featuring a naked Sophie Dahl has been named as the eighth most-complained about in the last 50 years in a new survey released by the Advertising Standards Agency.

The campaign first made headlines in 2000 when the French fashion house plastered the image of red-headed Dahl, unclothed but for some sparkly jewels and a pair of heels and posing suggestively, on billboards around the country. Shot by Steven Meisel, Tom Ford - who was then the newly-appointed creative director of YSL - hoped the advert would put the then-ailing brand back on the fashion map whilst also giving a nod to house's history of sexual provocation and female liberation.

Ford's technique worked and the image has since become synonymous with the house, and Opium - which was first launched in 1977 - remains one of YSL's best-known scents.

The ASA received 948 complaints that the image was too sexually suggestive and unsuitable to be seen by children. As a result it was removed from billboards, but was still allowed to be used in appropriate magazines. - Telepgraph UK

Emilia Wickstead Pink Dress... Yep! That's the one you're seeing down there.
Catherine wore the same Emilia Wickstead rose pink dress for two different occasions honoring Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee. She first wore the look on May 18th at a luncheon at Windsor Castle with nude satin Prada shoes, and later paired the pretty pastel look with a matching hat, L.K. Bennett heels, and a matching clutch for a garden party at Buckingham Palace. The events were only 11 days apart in May 2012.

Justin Bieber 'physically battered' photographer

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies are investigating a complaint that Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber roughed up a man who was taking pictures of the performer at a suburban shopping centre, police said on Monday. 


Deputies were called on Sunday to an outdoor shopping area in Calabasas, about 23 miles northwest of Hollywood, by a man who reported having just had an altercation with Bieber, the sheriff's department said in a press statement.

According to the statement, the man said he was taking pictures of Bieber, who was with his girlfriend, actress Selena Gomez, when the singer "physically battered" him.

Bieber's publicist with Island/Def Jam Music Group could not immediately be reached for comment.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff's department, Lillian Peck, declined to give further details about the nature of the alleged confrontation or any injuries suffered by the man.

But Peck said the man, who was not identified by police, complained of pain, and after requesting medical attention was treated on the scene by paramedics, then taken to a local hospital, where he was examined and later released.  - Telegraph UK article

TOPSHOP to Collaborate with Louise Gray


Topshop have announced a collaboration with fashion designer Louise Gray for their up-coming Autumn make-up collection. The Scot has been a regular on the London Fashion Week circuit since her debut in 2010, and has already made something of a name for herself. 


Notorious for her eclectic use of haphazard prints, clashing textures and a kaleidascope of colours, the collaboration with high street favourite Topshop is a smart match.

'My mainline collections have always been about pushing optimism, colour and fun,' said Gray. 'I want [the Topshop girl] to experiment with the product, be daring and have fun with it.'

The collection will be unveiled in August but for a sneak peak, check out photos of the designer herself because Gray has promised the collection will be 'similar to both the fashion and make-up I wear already.'

Expect playful brights, glitter pots and fluro pops of colour. 

Watch this space...

Jealous Kim Kardashian 'bans Rihanna from Kanye West's dressing room'

Kim Kardashian reportedly banned Rihanna from setting foot in Kanye West's dressing room during his "Watch the Throne tour".

A source told The Sun: 'Kim doesn't want women near him unless she is there - even friends. The fact that Rihanna was linked to her brother Rob probably didn't help.'
It's not just the Umbrella singer Kim isn't a fan of, as her jealous behaviour came to a head last week when she ordered Kanye to leave a London party as he was spending too much time with the other revellers, leaving her feeling ignored.

The source went on to say that Kim was 'all over Kanye at the start', however as soon as he started to mix with other people 'she had a stern word and took him away from the party'.
'He followed her orders with minimum fuss. He knows the deal,' it added. *Source: Metro

Did you read that?? "He followed her orders.. "Whooooooopaaaah!!"

Alanoud Badr aka Lady Fozaza: From Bold to Baby, with Evian


Following the remarkable success gained across the Internet with their baby viral video, Evian created a T-Shirt in honor of the popular campaign. It is so irresistibly cute  that it got sold out within minutes from selling it online. You could just not but fall in love with its "awesomeness"!! The tees allow just about anyone to unveil the cool hip-hoppin baby within. The idea behind the campaign is that youth is not a matter of age, but rather a mindset. It is never about age, but it's about the spirit and energy within that makes you connect to your youth, forever… Our Alanoud Badr has been selected as one of the faces to pause for the Evian Tees, and we cannot but salute Evian for their impeccable choice. The fearless bold Lady Fozaza goes "baby" with Evian! Keep coming because you never know when we'll post Alanoud's photoshoot!

Kanye West gives Kim Kardashian Fashion Advice!!!


Ok.. Ever since Kanye West popped in the "Kardashian Universe", something must be happening on a daily basis.. To a point I sometimes I think of replacing the term "my bread and butter" with "our Kanye and Kim".. Seriously! Just a while back, it has been reported that our beloved rapper has been giving his new girlfriend Kim Kardashian fashion tips,  offering  the model advice on how she can "evolve" her style. Yes, we hear you.. We do. This is the Kanye West, the same exact person who trended those bright colored flashy sunglasses that didn't even have lenses... just plastic bars, which I'm sure you have it somewhere hidden away from your memory..



That's right, Kanye has been giving Kim a series of "lectures" (we love this word!) to pull the star out of her "playing-it-safe" style, he's even picking out outfits for her. After all, what would Kim know about fashion? (Sorry, we'll take a break to laugh so hard because this is the funniest thing we've ever blogged about.. I mean seriously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) She's only a model...who grew up surrounded by fashion conscious sisters in a family constantly preened for the lime-light.

A source says: (Here comes our favorite part.. Just make sure no heavy machinery is next to you.. Just sayin'..)

"He thinks she should be more like him, edgy with her choices. He keeps saying she should ‘evolve’ as a fashion icon... Kanye says she plays it safe too much so has been trying to pick outfits for her to wear and encourage her to be more daring.”



It seems as though Kanye believes that Kim could be more adventurous with her style choices now that she's attached to his trendy hip. But as a quick reminder here... Didn't Kim run a clothing boutique with her mom Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian before becoming famous? And doesn't everyone agree that Kim Kardashian has contributed to help front the Kardashian Kollection, a successful clothing and home interior line designed by herself and her family??

What do you think? Do you agree with Kanye?

TAG Heuer uses Time for a Cause


TAG Heuer recently announced Alanoud Badr and Hatem Alakeel as their regional friends of the brand alongside various other representatives from across the globe at the TIME FOR REBELS exhibition in Geneva.



This exhibition was paying tribute to the SMART WATER FOR GREEN SCHOOLS program charity project, which is part of the Green Cross International, the leading environmental organization. The time devoted by all the personalities involved in the exhibition generated an amount of 250,000CHF donated to the organization. At the TIME FOR REBELS exhibition, the Swiss legends whose pioneering spirit has driven it forward for more than 150 years showcased another first of a kind technology breakthrough in watchmaking by launching the Mikrogirder 5/10000th mechanical chronograph.

The Smart Water for Green Schools (SWGS) project is the flagship on-the-ground activity for providing sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation to tens of thousands of people in Ghana, Bolivia and more countries in the future.



By equipping schools and communities with rainwater harvesting systems, wells and boreholes, plus providing ecological sanitation facilities, SWGS provides concrete solutions to improve the lives of people living in water poverty.

Launched in 2010, the project also works to promote the sharing of water between countries that have access to the same source, in that way reducing tensions over this increasingly scarce resource. SWGS is currently providing safe drinking water to over 40,000 people in Ghana and Bolivia.
