Basking in the sun while lounging by the pool with a gorgeous model, is all in a day’s work for lads of The Wanted!
The guys put their best Zoolander faces on as they modeled this summer’s hottest trends for Self Magazine. Siva and Nathan have some fun in this behind-the-scenes interview, with Siva having to bare the burden of talking on camera thanks to Nathan’s throat problems. Luckily, though, his voical problems can’t stop Nathan from playing piano at the beginning of the video (swoon!).
We also see Max and Jay dancing in the pool. They share what they love about L.A with Jay saying how it has, ”food and drink and oxygen… all the essentials.” Yes, essentials are very important, Jay. For more classic Jay quotes, check out this list we put together of some of his hilarious moments.
Whether it’s in the pool or in v-neck shirts, these guys gorgeous all the time.
Here are some shots from the shoot:
It’s official! Robert Pattinson is the new face of Dior Homme. The company tweeted the first promotional shot of the campaign but more photos from the commercial have already leaked online. It’s rumoured that the campaign is worth $12 million, pocket change for the actor who starred in the highly successful Twilight franchise. But if this black and white image of a brooding bearded R-Patz is a hint of what the campaign has in store, then let me tell you how oh so wrong you are.
The campaign video is supposedly quite risqué featuring topless models, make-out sessions, foursomes, and who knows what else? The full campaign video is said to run in Europe and Asia. It’s probably a good thing since it might be too scandalous for North America. But I’m sure an edited PG-13 version is ready to run on our side of the pond so don’t fret (plus, I’m sure we can catch the full video on the Internet just as soon as it hits the airwaves).
Here are some leaked images from the campaign from a Dior party.
The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran has a lot on his plate. Not only is he and his bandmates currently on tour and the stars of their own reality T.V. show, but Siva’s adding modelling to his list of growing duties. Now modelling isn’t a stretch for Siva not just because he’s highly photogenic (have you seen his cheekbones?!) but because he’s modeled before. Siva started modelling at the tender age of 15 in Ireland with his identical twin brother Kumar (yes you read that right, he has an identical twin) and is now returning to his modelling roots.
However Siva isn’t the only celebrity to sign with a modelling agency, here is your guide to celebrities with a modelling contract.

2) Ian Somerhalder (DNA Model Management & Storm Model Management)
3) Kendall Jenner (Wilhelmina Models) Read more…
The Council of Fashion Designers of America held their annual awards show this week (it’s like the Oscars, but for fashion!), which had all the designers, models, and celebrities strutting to the event. While this awards show doesn’t get as much hype as the year’s other awards shows, if you are serious about fashion then this is a pretty big deal.
One of the big surprises from the night was the video presentation of the nominees for Menswear Designer of the Year. The CFDA managed to wrangle up 30 or so high-cheekbone’d male models and got them to sing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” while wearing the collection from the nominated designers. While Thom Browne went home with the award, I think it’s safe to say we are all winners just for this video’s existence.
But do you think it’s better than Abercrombie and Fitch’s “Call Me Maybe” model cover extravaganza? Tweet your thoughts to us @ANDPOP.
Celebrities are used to having their pictures taken. But thanks to Instagram and cellphone camera technology, celebrities are taking control over their image and posting more candid photos than ever before. All hail the celebrity selfie!
While it’s fun to see which celeb likes to take the most selfies and to see who gives the most duckface, I always get distracted by their iPhone cases. I guess since we’re so used to seeing celebrities with the most expensive and luxe items, it’s kinda nice seeing them with a regular iPhone that many of us already have.
So how do they set themselves apart from us common folk? With fancy iPhone cases of course! Phone cases are a great way to personalize your phone and turn your phone into a fashion statement than just some handy piece of technology. So here are our guide to some of your fav celebrity phone cases.
It’s true that some phone cases can be pricey, so it’s not always feasible to get a case that matches your nail polish. But clearly Selena can afford as many phone cases as she wants. But she also proves to be quite frugal as well. In the very top photo Selena writes a shortened version of her name in gold permanent marker. It’s cheap but it marks it as hers. Graffiti-ing your own phone can be a cheap way to personalize your phone and make a statement without buying a case. And if you do make a mistake, then you can try wiping it off or buying a case to cover it up.

Two-piece bikinis are so been there, done that! This year, it’s all about the cutout monokini which is a great compromise between a bikini and a one-piece. It’s perfect for people who want to show off a lot of skin without looking like they actually are. And, it also adds some diversity to your swim wear drawer. Paris Hilton donned an abstract cutout monokini while on vacation in Hawaii, which I absolutely love! It’s low cut but doesn’t reveal too much! You really can’t go wrong with this swim wear pick!
Want to get your monokini swag on? Try these pieces:
Abstract cutout monokini (Forever 21, $24), Yanagita sandals (Aldo Shoes, $60), Straw Hat (H&M, $15), Skylar sunglasses (Urban Outfitters, $14), Gliceria bracelets (Aldo Accessories, $15)
Floral prints are an iconic trend for spring and one of the easiest to put together.It’s also the best, if not easiest, way to embrace your inner lady. Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr mixes colour blocking into her floral look which is a neat way to incorporate two very popular trends into one. This works really well because her floral printed trousers are of a lighter shade so using colours from the print itself still keeps it simple and chic.

Gatsby is always a great style inspiration, so is Leo DiCaprio.
Prom season is coming up and most likely there are some guys out there who still haven’t even given a thought to what they will be wearing that night. No worries. It’s usually thought that guy’s have it easier than girls when deciding what to wear for prom, which is partly true. But don’t discount the importance of a guy’s sartorial choice for prom night. Some guy’s might feel boxed in when picking a prom look when they feel the need to match their prom date’s outfit, or they might get roped into wearing their dad’s/brother’s/some distant relative’s hand-me-downs because it’s cheap and easy. But don’t fret as there are a variety of men’s looks to choose from.
The famously glitzy Cannes Film Festival in France, which is currently taking place, is a good place to start when deciding on prom looks.
Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire
You can’t go wrong with the traditional simple black tuxedo. When in doubt get a tux. The classic look stands alone and will pair nicely with whatever your prom date is wearing. When choosing the traditional black tuxedo little touches can go a long way as seen in Leo’s look, he’s wearing a three-piece suit with black satin lining which helps set himself apart from The Great Gatsby co-star Tobey. Another important thing to remember is fit! Maguire’s tux is tailored fit to his body, the fit is perfection. So if you think of busting out your dad’s ol’ tux make sure you get it tailored, otherwise you’ll look like a kid trying to play dress up.

Most of you probably looked at that headline and had your answer in mind, but that might change once you see the images we’re basing it on.
Now, Kim Kardashian is very pregnant and while I do get a laugh out of some of her outfit choices, I always feel terrible afterwards because I know karma will bite me in the ass when I’m someday pregnant and fit into nothing but a muumuu. However, if and when I do become pregnant, I will certainly retire any and all heels, something that Ms. Kardashian has chosen not to do. And the consequences of that choice can be seen in this Would You Rather video compiled by gossip site TMZ.com. She is being pitted against Julianne Moore, who had an unfortunate shoe malfunction while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend.
Both ladies are beautiful, but those photos do not do either of them justice. And it’s a little cruel of the site to put them against each other based on what appears to be their worst fashion moments, ones I’m sure both would like to forget.
That being said…Who would you rather?!
I seriously don’t know the relationship status between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. I thought they were back together but I just can’t assume these things anymore. Last month Selena’s on/off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber landed a double cover of Teen Vogue, and now it’s her turn to grace the newsstands with her cover of InStyle.
But Selena’s won’t be the only face you see on the magazine shelves, here are June’s other cover stars:
Selena’s former BFF gets on the magazine action too as she cover’s the June issue of Company.
However, when it comes to former Disney child actresses none can compare to Miley Cyrus. She is this month’s cover megastar! Not only did she land a double cover for Elle UK but she also got three covers for V Magazine. It’s safe to say that we’ve all moved on from Cyrus’ Hannah Montana days as she is a bona fide high fashion darling.

WOW…well this changes everything.
Chris McMillan, the stylist who created Jennifer Aniston’s famous ‘Rachel’ haircut has admitted that he was totally high when the style was born.
“I’m 14 years sober, so I feel safe enough to say that,” McMillan told WWD.
For the record, Aniston has called the ‘Rachel’ “the ugliest haircut” she has ever seen. Worn during the first and second seasons of Friends, the hairstyle Aniston’s hair has practically help define the 90s.
Embrace what you’ve helped create, Jennifer. You are an icon.
Effortless style is easy to have during the warmer seasons. Mostly because you can just put on a short dress paired with some cute flats and you’re good to go. Emma Watson put the trendy in casual while she was shopping in New York City this week. Love her pairing of the drawstring pants, a simple striped tee and cardigan. Those soft yellow loafers just add to this actress’s effortless style.

Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker share a moment on the red carpet.
It can be tough to find the right outfit for the Met Gala. There’s so much pressure to be dressed the best and the competition is steep! Like I said in Part 1, this year’s punk theme might have been a bit too high concept for some people to wrap their heads around. So while some celebrities made some honest but failed attempts at going punk, some celebrities completely ignored the theme all together. So here are our choices for the ones who did not quite make the best dressed list and the ones who completely missed the mark all together.
There’s a lot of the classic Taylor Swift elements going on in the dress, but I find the black so jarring on Swift. Perhaps if this was in Swift’s go to white colour it would work better.
Blake Lively looks like she is channeling her inner Black Swan, but there’s nothing very punk about this.
I love Jennifer Lawrence but this just seems like a case where a celebrity was contractually obligated to wear this design. J. Law is the face of Miss Dior so it makes sense why this happened. It’s pretty but not amazing.
When it comes to fashion, there are always new and wacky ideas coming out, but this one might just be brilliant: a jacket made up of sewn together Ziploc bags.
Just for the convenience alone, this is a pretty awesome idea. Think about how much more room you can get out of your bag by not having to keep your lunch and snacks in there. You could wear another jacket on top and sneak in your own snacks into a movie theater. Or make it a bit longer and you got yourself a great raincoat to keep you dry. My one concern would be zipping it up. Would you use the Ziploc bags with double zipper to make closing your jacket easier? What if you accidentally sewed the bag upside down? Then everything will come spilling out! AH! NO! NOT MY PRECIOUS M&M’S!
Either way it looks cool and is pretty darn inventive.
Beyoncé arrives fashionably late at this year’s Met Gala.
Fashion’s biggest red carpet took place this week as celebrities, models, and designers descended upon the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art ball. This year’s theme was punk in honour of their new exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture. While that was a fun idea, not that many attendees were able to pull off the punk concept. It was kind of like watching an episode of Project Runway where the episode’s challenge was too far out there for some of the designers to wrap their head around. It indeed resulted in one of the craziest Met Gala red carpets ever with so many spikes and studs paired with outrageous hair and makeup! I kind of have a feeling that next year’s theme won’t be so high concept (your move, Anna Wintour)! So let’s check out who made the cut on our best dressed list. And check back for Part 2: The Blahs and the Oh No’s!
Nina Dobrev can rock on stage and the red carpet in this look, a perfect combo for the gala’s theme.
Loving the studded detail on supermodel Cara Delevingne‘s gown.
Nicole Richie‘s white hair was so jaw dropping and totally badass! The dress might not be punk but the overall look is. Read more…
Maypole dancers surround the maypole with coloured ribbons on May Day, which is the first day of the month.
While some of you might be celebrating the beginning of May dancing to N’Sync’s “It’s Gonne Be Me” and if you don’t know why perhaps this will give you some sort of clue. Others around the world will be dancing to traditional folk music in celebration of May Day, a traditional European spring festival. So in honour of this lovely spring holiday, I’ll be giving you tips on rocking the floral trend that you can take with you well into the summer. And yeah I know what you’re thinking, florals for spring? How groundbreaking! But yes florals are actually a trend for 2013 for both women and men, so check it out!
Lana Del Rey, the Queen of the floral crown.
So if you missed out on Coachella, don’t fret because May Day is the perfect (and probably the most legitimate) reason for anyone to be wearing a floral crown. Floral crowns were spotted on the runways and magazine but hit the mainstream thanks to sultry singer Lana Del Rey. They became quite the phenomenon at Coachella and rightly overtook the Native American headdress (this should have never been a trend in the first place) as the hair accessory of choice for concertgoers. Don’t be surprised to see floral crowns at various music festivals this summer.
These poor girls were victims of a Jimmy Kimmel prank at this year’s Coachella.

This spring, you’ll have zero problem finding something sexy to wear on date night or if you’re just going out with the girls! Daring cutouts, up-to-there slits, and sheer fabrics were all over the runways for this season. Thanks to strategically placed windows and lace, this illusionist approach offers suggestive glimpses of skin while still keeping you fully clothed. So pull on coordinating lingerie, and play a bit of hide-and-seek with these look-at-me style statements that are very now and very wow.
Here are three ways to wear this daring and adventurous trend:
1. The High Slit
It’s spring! Let’s rejoice by busting out that denim dress we’ve been dying to wear. Aside from its epic wearability, denim is one of the biggest trends this season. It’s the one material that keeps revamping itself, fueling our obsession with new prints, washes and construction. And of course it can be paired with almost anything. I am obsessed with Alexa Chung’s pairing of the combat jacket and denim dress. Chic with a grunge twist!
Want the denim twist? Try these pieces:
Bolt Studded Denim Dress, Forever21, $28
Ecote Classic Surplus Jacket, Urban Outfitters, $78
Summer blockbuster season is almost upon us and you’re probably just as stoked as I am for a whole new crop of movies to devour. But when it comes to movie fashions, summer blockbusters tend to be big on explosions and less on couture. There’s always just a movie or two each year that leaves the audience with a big sartorial impact. Most people are betting on The Great Gatsby to have the biggest style impact, but just because it has the most fashion hype doesn’t mean it will be this year’s most fashionable film.
So here are the movies of 2013 that you need to keep you eyes on for the film’s fashion and sense of style.
The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famed novel is a rite of passage in any high school english classroom. This novel has made its way to the silver screen before but it is Baz Luhrmann’s super stylized adaptation that has us most excited, making it one of the most anticipated films of the year. The Roaring Twenties was a period of high fashion, artistic expression, crazy parties, and excess. No wonder it’s still a popular period for fashion magazines to take editorial inspiration from, and besides everyone loves a good flapper dress. Although this period piece has the most hype (check out Carey Mulligan’s Vogue cover), the ’20s inspiration might have already reached its peak during the Spring/Summer 2012 runways. Perhaps the film will revitalize last year’s trend and keep it alive.
A$AP Rocky is no doubt one of the best dressed guys in hip hop today. He’s not afraid to rock (or name drop) the likes of high fashion labels such as Balmain, Givenchy and some badass floral prints from Balenciaga. So take a page out of A$AP Rocky’s book and check out his fashion Do’s and Don’ts.
