Ashley Graham swears a cannabidiol-infused product helps minimise the pain of wearing stilettos.

The curvy model, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Justin Ervin, is one of the hottest names in the fashion industry and has recently landed major gigs for the likes of Swimsuits for All, Revlon, and Rag & Bone.

However, Ashley isn’t a fan of standing around in high heels for long photoshoots, and in an interview with Into The Gloss, she explained that she finds formulas made with cannabidiol (CBD), which is derived from the hemp plant, really help.

“If I’m wearing heels, we’ve got to talk about Lord Jones,” she praised. “The CBD on the bottom of the foot is very necessary – it’s a model secret, because you have to be ready hours in advance of a show and you’re just standing around.”

Lord Jones is known for its High CBD Formula Body Lotion, High CBD Formula Body Oil, and the Royal Oil, which is made with CBD oil and pure grapeseed oil, with celebrities such as Liv Tyler, Kristen Bell, and Olivia Wilde also fans of the products.

Elsewhere in the chat, Ashley shared that she visits Mzia Shiman once a month for a facial and likes to use Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O Solution to remove her make-up each night.

She also likes Retrouve skincare products, after being recommended them by Tracee Ellis Ross’s make-up artist.

“The Intensive night moisturiser is very rich, but light enough that I’m not going to also break out. You only need a little bit of it. I also like the eye cream. I’m in my early thirties so I’m just doing it preventatively. I feel like eye creams are a little bit BS, but with this one, I can feel a difference,” the 31-year-old explained.

Liv Tyler is certain she would have been a facialist if she didn’t get into acting.

The Leftovers actress has long had an interest in beauty products, having been fascinated by her mother and grandmother’s respective routines, and also served as a brand ambassador for Givenchy’s perfume and cosmetics for a decade beginning in 2003.

In a new tutorial for Vogue.com, Liv shared that she enjoys trying out new formulas and has a very dedicated daily regime.

“My secret obsession and passion of my whole life has been skincare. I think I would have become a facialist if I didn’t start acting,” she smiled.

Liv went on to detail the key products she uses and praised Astara’s Blue Flame Purification Mask, Avene’s Extremely Rich Compensating Cream, and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum. But the star swears by regular use of Talika’s Eye Therapy Patches too.

“One great trick, if you get puffy eyes, which I get whenever I eat anything with salt in it, or when I’m flying or anything, is to put this sort of eye-patchy things under your eyes. I keep mine in the fridge. And sometimes on set, if I have a really early pick-up, like a 5.30 am pickup which is really brutal… I wear these to work sometimes in the car,” the 42-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the video, Liv explained that she can do up to 25 steps in her beauty regime, with other notable products in her bathroom cabinet including Visine’s Original Redness Relief Eye Drops, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Glow Drops, Rodial’s Diamond Liquid Concealer, and Rodin’s Face Oil.

Yet, at the end of the day, the mother-of-three believes abiding by a healthy lifestyle is just as important when it comes to caring for the complexion.

“Water is a huge important factor in having good skin. I know everybody says that but sleep and water maybe are the most important things,” she stated. “Then, I make this crazy green juice which is hard if you don’t have time… this one has celery and cucumber, a little bit of apple, some spinach or kale. Green things, your body loves green things.”

Ruby Rose has been tapped as the new face of clothing label G-Star Raw.

The Australian actress and TV presenter is known for her ability to effortlessly mix designer garments with high-street items, and always turns heads whenever she steps out onto the red carpet.

Now, Ruby has been announced as the latest brand ambassador for G-Star, the Dutch brand known for its raw denim and military uniform-inspired apparel.

“I’ve always been a fan of G-Star, their attitude really aligns with my passion and respect for our planet,” the 33-year-old said in a statement. “In this specific campaign, I love how G-Star motivates us to embrace who we are and feel confident in doing so. Denim has a magical way of attributing to that confidence.”

Ruby is fronting G-Star’s spring/summer 2019 campaign, which will officially launch on Monday (15Apr19). In the black and white images, The Meg star is seen posing in items including a raw denim jacket with high collar, black skinny jeans, and a lighter denim top.

Regarding the partnership, a G-Star spokesperson described Ruby as a natural fit for the brand.

“A notable name and the perfect embodiment of what G-Star stands for is Australian actress, model and presenter Ruby Rose,” they shared. “Understanding the missed opportunity in simply fitting in, Ruby teamed up with the denim brand to celebrate all those who know they were born to stand out. The campaign solidifies this feeling in their tagline, by inviting everyone to join and celebrate what sets them apart: ‘It’s you. Own it.'”

Ruby is following in the footsteps of former G-Star campaign stars including Liv Tyler, Jaden Smith, and Clemence Poesy.

Actress Liv Tyler is showing off her stunning curves in a sexy 1920s-inspired photo shoot for lingerie brand Triumph.

The Lord of the Rings beauty has collaborated with the intimates label on a new capsule collection and now she is showing off the figure-hugging pieces in a series of new images.

“In one photo, the star can be seen posing in red lace items with matching lipstick and heels as she reclines on a blue couch. The cabaret style photos also show the 41 year old in a print corset and stockings in front of a curtain, as well as a snap of her in a matching purple bra and panties with her dark locks styled similarly to an old school film vixen.

Tyler previously appeared in the U.K.-based brand’s autumn/winter campaign last year (17) and expressed her excitement in a statement at the time.

“I am so honoured to be working with Triumph, a brand I have known and admired for so many years,” she said. “It has such history. The Triumph Essence collection is really special and has both a playful, feminine and chic style, which I love.

The partnership came about as Liv tried to get back into shape after giving birth to her third child, Lula, in 2016. In an interview with People magazine, her trainer Russell Bateman revealed she was dedicated to inspiring others with her devotion to a healthy lifestyle.

“She has so many things to try and juggle but she really is an example for modern day women and female empowerment,” he told the publication at the time. “Liv, like a lot of the girls I train, is just trying to become her most optimal self. Good sleep, rest and de-stressing all contribute to optimal shape and mood.”

“She’s very balletic, and this is coupled with a strong work ethic, which makes her a pleasure to train,” he added. “Anything that I say is going to be tough she treats as a challenge, and kills it.”

Princess Eugenie has chosen an elegant white off-the-shoulder gown from Peter Pilotto for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

The British royal, who is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, arrived at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, England on Friday (12Oct18) morning, where she stepped out in a dress designed by Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

Eugenie worked closely with the design duo on the long-sleeved ballgown, which features a corseted bodice, a full pleated skirt as well as a number of meaningful motifs.

“The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis,” a royal spokesperson explained in a statement. “The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the Bride’s Ferguson family, the York Rose and ivy representing the couple’s home.”

Eugenie, 28, wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by The Queen, with the headpiece featuring brilliant and rose cut diamonds set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side, as well as diamond and emerald drop earrings which were gifted to her by Jack.

She completed her outfit with satin peep-toe heels by Charlotte Olympia and a bouquet comprised of Lily of the Valley, Stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy.

Eugenie’s sister and maid of honour, Princess Beatrice wore a blue outfit by Ralph and Russo and a hat by Sarah Cant, while their mother Sarah, Duchess of York chose an emerald green ensemble crafted by local Windsor company Emma Louise Design and carried a vintage Manolo Blahnik bag.

Jack, who was very emotional as his bride walked towards up the aisle, donned a traditional three-piece suit.

Other members of the royal family suitably dressed up to the nines, with The Queen choosing a pale blue suit and hat, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wowing in a fuchsia dress, and her sister-in-law, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex turning heads in a navy blue Givenchy coat dress.

Over 850 guests were in attendance at the wedding, including a number of A-listers. Naomi Campbell stepped out in a black and white dress with a feather trim along with matching fascinator, diamond jewellery and black gloves, while Kate Moss opted for a navy and white polka dot suit, which she complemented with a veiled headpiece.

Actress Liv Tyler looked lovely in a navy blue tailored suit, Pixie Geldof stood out in a bubblegum pink cape dress from Celine and Demi Moore was the epitome of elegance in a burgundy dress which she complemented with a coordinated fascinator and purse.

Robbie Williams suited up in a three-piece blue number and his wife Ayda Field dazzled in a light grey suit, with the couple’s six-year-old daughter Theodora acting as one of Eugenie’s bridesmaids in the ceremony. Other standout outfits included the tuxedo and top hat worn by Cara Delevingne, the floral print dress sported by Sofia Wellesley, the wife of singer James Blunt, and the baby pink ensemble donned by Holly Vallance.

Givenchy ‘collides gender codes’ for spring 2019

Givenchy removed the idea of gender norms in a smart, tailored collection for spring 2019.

Clare Waight Keller presented her latest line on Sunday night (30Sep18) at the Palais de Justice during Paris Fashion Week, which was attended by a cluster of celebrity A-listers including Anne Hathaway, Liv Tyler and Amanda Seyfried. The British designer told reporters the collection was inspired by the androgynous Swiss writer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, who dressed as both a man and a woman while enjoying love affairs with members of both sex.

According to American Vogue, Waight Keller’s muse provided her with a reason to “collide the codes” of women’s and menswear.

Work-friendly outfits were common place, with the presentation beginning with high-waisted paper bag belted trousers and smart trench coats in various fits and materials, paired with soft shirts that could be fastened with either buttons or a more modern-looking zip running up the front of the garment. Many of the elegant ensembles were given a fun twist, through means such as removing clothing from under the low-cut fitted blazers, or pairing relaxed pants with edgy biker jackets or sleeveless shirts.

The majority of the models – whether a man or a woman – all displayed matching short cropped haircuts, and Waight Keller explained that the similarities between the models was a conscious decision on her part.

“The casting was paramount,” she told the Guardian after the show. “I wanted the women and men to be indefinable. Something about that felt relevant – and appealing, actually.”

Though much of the collection was dedicated to androgynous suiting, traditionally feminine dresses still made an appearance, with Givenchy experimenting with shape, colour and fit throughout, concluding the presentation with full-length sparkling evening gowns adorned with embellishment.

Paris Fashion Week continues on Monday with shows from Stella McCartney and Giambattista Valli.

Famed fashion photographer Rankin is celebrating Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary with a new book dedicated to the cartoon rodent.

Walt Disney’s most famous creation, who was first introduced in 1928, has enjoyed a fashion resurgence over the past few years, with Opening Ceremony and Coach using Mickey and his partner Minnie’s image on their recent designs.

For his project, titled Mickey Mouse & Me, Rankin enlisted the help of an army of models, actors, singers and British TV stars, including Kate Moss, Heidi Klum and Liv Tyler, to pose for a series of portraits paying tribute to the Disney icon.

“Mickey Mouse amazed me as a kid and Disney Fantasia made me want to be involved in film,” Rankin said in a statement.

“He is much more than a character, but a symbol of optimism, hope and inspiration for people from every walk of life, and you can see his influence in my photography over the years. This book pays tribute to the inspirational impact he has had on a generation and his journey from simple sketch to cultural icon over 90 years.”

Mark Hamill, Hayley Atwell, Tinie Tempah and TV presenter Phillip Schofield are among the other stars sharing their love for Mickey.

Copies of the book, which features both black and white and colour images, will be auctioned on eBay in July (18) to raise funds for children’s charity Together for Short Lives – an organisation which helps kids with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions lead fulfilling lives.

“We’ve had a lot of fun making it, and owe a debt of gratitude to those involved. I hope we raise a lot of money for an incredible charity,” Rankin added.

Earlier this year, Heidi attended Minnie Mouse’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star unveiling.

Emilia Wickstead is teaming with wellness brand Bodyism on a new activewear collection.

The New-Zealand born designer is known for her ladylike garments and now counts Sarah Jessica Parker, Gigi Hadid and Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge as customers.

But in response to her clientele’s growing interest in health and fitness, Wickstead is adding sporty clothing to her line via a 13-piece capsule collection.

“Exercise is such an integral part of so many women’s lives, and I wanted to approach activewear from a modern woman’s perspective,” Wickstead told WWD. “I wanted to give my customer an activewear collection that is stylish, directional and unexpected, in keeping with our brand ethos. Health and fitness is also incredibly important to me personally, as is the confidence and empowerment that it lends to you every day.”

The range is due to launch on 12 March (18) and will include leggings, sports bras, sweatshirts and even yoga mats featuring pastel pink and floral patterns.

Wickstead has also chosen to name each item after celebrity customers. For example, the high-necked Sienna crop top pays tribute to actress Sienna Miller, while other pieces are named after Liv Tyler, Arizona Muse, and Karolina Kurkova.

“I always name my collections after women I admire and names that I love,” the designer smiled. “I believe in names giving personality to a garment.”

Prices range from $111 (£80) for a sports bra to $388 (£280) for a jacket, will all items available to purchase from department stores such as Harrods and Selfridges as well as online at Net-a-porter and Bodyism.com.

Bodyism was launched in 2006 by James Duigan, a longtime friend of the fashion star. The wellness club offers activewear and sports equipment alongside its exercise studios and cafes in Europe and Asia.

Natalia Vodianova led the glamour at 2018 Fabulous Fund Fair on Tuesday night (20Feb18).

The Russian model held her fifth major fundraiser to benefit her Naked Heart Foundation, which creates free support services for families of children with physical, mental and sensory disabilities, at The Roundhouse venue on the last day of London Fashion Week.

Natalia, 35, stepped out on the red carpet in an eye-catching red patent leather dress by Simone Rocha worn with strappy heels, and explained prior to the charity bash that she had chosen an intergalactic theme for the night.

“For this time around, the theme of our fundraiser is inspired by space and other sci-fi references,” she told Forbes. “(We have) a night filled with cosmic games such as Dior’s Black Hole, Messina’s Star Race, Versace’s Solar Race, L’Oreal’s Stellar Kiss, Fendi’s Spaceball and many, many more.”

In addition to big name fashion and cosmetics brands getting in on the action, other famous faces did too. Natalia “sold” kisses at the event, while model Karlie Kloss handed out baked goods from her cookie company Karlie Kloss’s Kookies and Doutzen Kroes, who sported a dramatic red metallic trench coat and matching trousers, showed off her paper plane making skills.

While actress Liv Tyler manned a coconut shy game, with guests also invited to try their luck at everything from hook-a-duck, hoopla and skittles.

And Australian model Madeline Stuart, the world’s first professional model with Down’s syndrome, posed up a storm on the red carpet.

“The best event ever @nakedheartfoundation Congratulations @natasupernova on such an amazing night. Thank you for inviting me. #breakingthemouldtour #love#supermodel #inclusion,” she captioned a photo of her at the bash posted on her Instagram page.

Other celebrities in attendance included Lara Stone, Izabel Goulart, Lottie Moss and Neelam Gill.
