Here Is A Graphic That Features Every ‘Best Actress’ Oscar Gown Since 1929

And the winner is ...

We are just a couple days away from the 2014 Academy Awards and on that night we will learn which actress will walk home with the Oscar for Best Actress. When that woman is revealed, we will learn which Oscar gown will become the 2014 Best Actress Oscar Gown … but before we look forward, let’s look back at all of the Best Actress Oscar Gowns that came before. Mediarun Digital created a graphic that shows every single Best Actress Oscar Gown since 1929 … and I have to say, it’s a pretty neat graphic.

Jennifer Lawrence Stuns In The New Dior Ad Campaign

Actually, She Stuns in EVERY Dior Ad Campaign

Jennifer Lawrence, who has been the celebrity spokesmodel for Christian Dior for the past couple of seasons, is featured in her third campaign for the design house and, as usual, she looks utterly and completely amazing. The new Dior promo photos are set to run in fashion magazines starting next week (Marie Claire in the UK, Vanity Fair in the US). Thus far, there are only 4 new photos in the Spring/Summer 2014 ad campaign so I padded this gallery with previous photos of J. Law from her earlier Dior ad campaigns. If you may recall, Jen wore an amazing Dior dress to the Oscars last year … I can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing this year.

Nike Designer Promises Self-Lacing Shoes By 2015

Back To The Future, For Reals

Back in 2011, Nike released a limited run of Nike Air Mag shoes designed to look exactly like the Nike shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II when he traveled to the future years of 2015. The only thing that made the 2011 shoes shy of perfection was the fact that they didn’t self-lace like they did in the movie. Today we learn from Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield that plans are in the works to introduce real, working self-lacing shoes by 2015 — the same year that Marty McFly traveled to the future. Um, awesome!! More »

Watch: Rodarte Puts ‘Star Wars’ Characters On Their Spring/Summer 2014 Dresses Because Fashion!

Inspired by the "ethereal idea" of childhood nostalgia
The Force of Fashion

Fashion house Rodarte showed off their Spring/Summer 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week this week and delighted the fans of the Stars Wars film franchise with their collection of dresses that feature characters, objects and scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy of films. Says Rodarte designer Laura Mulleavy, “We wanted to do a collection based off this very ethereal idea of what is childhood nostalgia and thinking about who you were and what you loved, and what you dreamed about — the way you saw color, the way you remember color, things like that. And we never did anything like that with clothing. It was really fun and exciting.” I always say that I don’t know fashion but I know what I like and I really like these dresses. I don’t know that we’ll see many of these Yoda or Death Star dresses on the fashionistas or the red carpets of the world but … I, for one, would LOVE to see this kind of pop culture influence have an impact on the world of fashion. There is something really fun about these looks. I mean, I don’t wear dresses but if I did … yeah, this is something that I think I’d like to wear to a special event. Watch the video above to see these Star Wars dresses in action and see what you think. Is this a look that you’d rock or you’d like your fave fashioninsta stars to rock in public?

American Apparel Is Featuring A Beautiful 62-Year Old Model In Their New Underwear Ad Campaign

Bravo

American Apparel usually gets a lot of flak for the ad campaigns that they put out, particularly the ones that are often accused of the exploitation of women (some allegedly underaged), and they caused a stir when they recently started displaying mannequins with pubic hair … but today we learn that the company has done something that is actually worth high praise. 62-year old model Jacky O’Shaughnessy is featured in the company’s new underwear ad campaign and as you can see below, she is just the latest of incredibly beautiful models that AA features in their ad campaigns. I never thought I’d be impressed by an American Apparel ad campaign but I really am … even more impressed than I usually am with the male underwear ads. Check out the photo below of Jacky and learn a bit more about her work with AA and read some of the feedback the company has been getting after the release of her underwear ad photo. More »
