How Everyone Reacted to Laurina Fleure’s Interviewing Gig at the 2014 ARIA Awards

Laurina Fleure is a fashion boutique owner, model and one of The Bachelor Australia’s most-talked-about contestants, but the online community is up in arms about her interviewing skills for the 2014 ARIA Awards red carpet.

We can only assume Laurina was chosen because of her fashion expertise and brief stint with Channel 10, but her role as red carpet host was questioned by many, and praised by few. Twitter users had plenty to say following her interviews with Peking Duk, John Butler Trio, Charli XCX and Martha Marlow.

Her microphone technique was the cause of most of the flak, presumably due to the awkward moment she had with Peking Duk’s Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles. (more…)

The lace-up thigh-highs, pouting lips and sexual stances really take the sex appeal to the next level, though. (more…)

Nicole Kidman Takes a Risk with Her Much-Loved Prada

Prada is Nicole Kidman’s go-to designer lately. She opted for the label’s sheer-sleeved midi dress with crystal piping for the Paddington premiere last Sunday, and on November 26 she looked to Prada’s funkier metallic-purple piece for the Agon Channel launch party in Milan.

The Paddington outfit was a much safer option, especially when we’re used to seeing a certain old Hollywood glamour from Nicole’s wardrobe, but we love that Nicole took a risk with the on-trend high neck, contrasting colour panels, and metallic hues in this piece.

Because the dress made such a statement on its own, we’re glad Nicole kept her makeup minimal and elegant. The beehive do with loose waves, however, wasn’t in line with Nicole’s edgier piece, sending mixed messages.
