A matter of sex bombs: Wheels & Dollbaby and Tiah Eckhardt

Wheels and Dollbaby is a cult contemporary womenswear label that has its own personality with a bag full of adjectives: it’s cheeky, kinky, minx-like, sophisticated, classy and luxurious. The brand opened doors to its small flagship store in Sydney, 25 years ago, and today celebrities like Katy Perry, Courtney Love, Dita Von Teese and Jessie J have taken the label to the limelight, also known…

Hair how to: Rodarte’s soft waves and stars

Revisiting Australia in the 1920s, Rodarte's fall 2012 collection paired outback-inspired earthy makeup with a voluminous side-parted bob. Of course, you don't need scissors to get the look: this vintage inspired look just needs curling tongs, and lots of bobby pins. Rodarte capped things off with bursts of gold stars. Follow the full how-to after the break.

Lil bake shop: weekend watch

The season’s pastel colours and retro-inspired bodysuits have been giving many creative teams visions of glamorised 1950s daily life. But Amber Gray looked at them and saw a sugar-induced dreamland of cakes and candy. The characters populating Amber Gray’s candy kingdom are so colourful they could make Katy Perry look dull in comparison. Let’s face it, when your hair, makeup, nails and even skin are…

Beauty school dropout

If you’ve seen 1978’s Grease then the odds are that you’re more than familiar with Frankie Avalon’s song of the same name. In it Avalon, as guardian angel, opines the future of Frenchy; a high-school drop out with dreams of becoming a beautician. Frenchy is sadly “a teenage ne’er-do-well”; not much of a student and even less of a beautician. While it’s right there in…

Abbey Lee waits

As She Waits is the title of this shoot starring Abbey Lee Kershaw. Waits for what, we don’t quite know. But she feels like a girl out of place against the decaying opulence of an abandoned theatre, wearing girlish frocks and hairpins, paired with Prada’s hot rod heels and purses. Yet another shoot from the March issue of Interview (fast proving a must pick-up issue…

Metal Metropolis gone fetish

Interview Magazine called it Metal Headz: “a new modern armour… like a gilded cage for the body”, referencing the “eroticism of a constricted silhouette that demands a sharp intake of breath.” A sharp intake of breath indeed. Styled by Karl Templer (who also just wowed us with this transformation of Katy Perry in the same issue) it’s a futuristic vision that recalls Fritz Lang’s Metropolis…

Katy Perry, from cute to sexy

Katy Perry is not know for bring understated or classic; in fact if there’s one word that perfectly defines her public image, colourful might just be it. “She’s a Rainbow”, as the Rolling Stones once sang. And yet Interview Magazine put on their latest cover a barely recognisable Katy Perry in monochrome, with styling that might have been borrowed from the dressing room of Monica…

This is Katy Perry… believe it or not

Putting a much-exposed celebrity on the cover of a magazine isn’t in itself newsworthy. But putting them on the cover of a magazine and making them unrecognisable? That’s oddly a guaranteed way to get attention. Lucky for the text on Interview’s latest cover declaring this to be Katy Perry. Otherwise we may have been left guessing.

New Katy Perry for ghd: first look

In case you needed more evidence of a 20s fashion revival: launching this week is Katy Perry’s new campaign for ghd, promoting the brand’s new Scarlet Collection. While last time Perry was transported by the ghd team and photographer David LaChapelle back to the 50s, 70s, and 80s, this time she’s been given classically 1920’s finger waves – just ripe for the burgeoning trend. Katy…
