Kate Peck, Mimi Elashiry and Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison hit Sydney’s Chicwick restaurant yesterday for the launch of MTV Australia Style, turning up in a mix of kooky twin sets, glittery separates and monochromatic prints.

Vicky rocked a 50s housewife vibe in a houndstooth midi skirt teamed with a high-neck crop from her VIP collection for Honey Boutique, and looked a little rockabilly with red lips and matching pointed-toe heels.

MTV VJ Kate was pulling double duty as Myer ambassador, attending the event in a sparkly ensemble by one of the department store’s designers, Jayson Brunsdon. The icy blonde rocked a brown button-up blouse with gold-sequinned panels, tucked into a shiny pink tube skirt and toned down with black two-strap pumps. “Watch out world!! I’m going to blind you with my #discostyle,” she wrote of the outfit to Instagram. Hey, at least she warned us.

Pint-sized Mimi, who was announced as the website’s new style ambassador (probably due to her 510,000 Instagram followers), wore an epic outfit by Di$count Univer$e. Even with the other girls towering over her, Mimi still stood out in the rainbow-coloured getup adorned with belt buckles.

Montana Cox is Nervous About Hosting Tonight’s ARIA Awards Red Carpet


A photo posted by Montana (@montanacox1) on

Montana Cox is no stranger to the spotlight, but is pretty nervous about hosting tonight’s ARIA Awards red carpet alongside music reporter Scott Tweedie. “Hosting is a totally different ballgame,” the 21-year-old model told The Daily Telegraph.

“Being in front of the camera having your photo taken is completely different to talking to these artists,” she explained. “I’m nervously excited.” But the 21-year-old winner of Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 7 has been doing “a bit of research” ahead of her hosting gig, which will hopefully impress the international acts like Katy Perry and One Direction.

Montana admitted she’s particularly excited about meeting boy-band heart-throb Harry Styles, saying, “Of course I think he’s cute.” If she’s as good on the red carpet as she is on the catwalk, Harry could easily take a liking to her too.

Cara Delevingne Makes a Cameo in the Pan Trailer

It’s here, guys! The Pan film is due to hit theaters next summer and today, the movie posters and the trailer hit the web. And yes, it looks awesome. But we can’t help but admit that what we’re most excited for is to see Cara Delevingne flex her acting muscles on the big screen. 

The model has been steadily racking up the acting credits and for this film, she’s been cast as a mermaid – which, now that we think of it, is the same role a certain other model-turned-actress played in a different pirate-focused movie. Delevingne doesn’t have a huge part in the trailer, but she does make a quick appearance, swimming through the water, looking absolutely ethereal and gorgeous as a fair sea maiden.

Watch the whole trailer above and get excited for the film, which is due to hit theaters this July.

Phoebe Tonkin on Her Frame Denim Film, Headbanging and Being Hangry

Frame Denim just launched its resort collection and to celebrate, the brand tapped Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin (who you may recognize from The Originals and The Vampire Diaries) to star in a three-part short series titled Girls in Frame. The shorts are inspired by Andy Warhol’s screen tests, which were black and white film portraits of various hip members of the late artist’s scene back in the mid-60s. Frame Denim’s play on the classic involves a little more sound (Warhol’s tests were silent) and a lot more attitude.

Director Matt Baron was tapped to direct the series, which was conceived by Frame Denim founders Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson. Phoebe was asked to portray three emotions: anger, happiness and sexiness, for the campaign, repeating the words, “Girls in Frame.” 

“I felt [conveying] all three emotions was pretty easy,” Phoebe told us of the project via email. “I am generally a happy person anyway, the sexy part I guess I can turn on in times of desperation, and if I am hungry I am most definitely angry.” Drawing on the emotions was the easy part, but it turns out executing them had its own set of challenges. Phoebe says that she listened to heavy metal to get herself in character for the “angry” role. “I head banged for a good 20 minutes like I was in a mosh pit,” she told us. “I wouldn’t say hard, just exhausting. I was rubbing tiger balm religiously on my neck for the next three days. I don’t know how the kids do it.” (more…)

Benetton Takes a Stand Against Violence Towards Women in New Ad Campaign


Benetton is no stranger to provocative ads, especially those that have some sort of social or political agenda. This year, it’s focusing on violence against women, an issue affecting so many victims around the world. The clothier has linked up with the UN to deliver a campaign with a profound message: an image picturing a woman sitting in the center of a circle of men who are “stoning” her with petals. 

Benetton’s ads have drummed up plenty of controversy in the past. The UnHate campaign from 2011 pictured world leaders kissing each other on the lips, which ruffled more than a few feathers, particularly those of the Catholic church. One ad showed Pope Benedict XVI kissing Sheikh Ahmad Muhammad Al-Tayyeb, which the Vatican promptly called to be removed. 

This new campaign was created in tandem with the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which takes place today. Benetton brings the campaign to life in a 30-second spot added to its UnHate news website, through which users can submit the types of news stories they’d like to hear about.

Watch the powerful spot below.
