Another Preview of the Alexander Wang X H&M Collaboration

Earlier this year H&M anounced that Alexander Wang would be the next designer to collaborate with the high-street retailer and I've been checking for updates and previews ever since, I mean I honestly squealed for a minute after seeing the preview images.

Today released some images from the October issue of British GQ featuring items from the men's collection of the highly-anticipated collaboration. The images show that the collection has a very atlethic vibe we all know from AW, sweatshirts, shorts, sweatpants and t-shirts are the main focus of the selection finished with a pair of rad WANG sunglasses, a leather backpack and crisp white high-tops. Also, don't forget about the big pufferjackets, rad. I definitley need the grey WANG sweater! 
This is just a small selection of the collab I can't wait for the rest of the collection which will be available in November. What's your fave item of the collection so far? Let me know below!

Josephine Skriver

From playing soccer at HIK, the socccerclub she used to play for, to walking shows for Oscar de la Renta and Zac PosenJosephine Skriver is a half German, half Danish girl born on April 14, 1993 in Copenhagen, Denmark started modelling in Copenhagen in 2008 and is now a successful young model. 

It all started when Josephine's lesbian mother has decided to place an ad for a sperm-donor. ''My mother placed an ad where she wrote that she looked for a man to have children with. My father answered, and that's how I came into the world,'' she told the Danish magazine, Cover.

Growing up she was a sporty-girl, she played soccer at HIK, a soccer club based in Copenhagen. She has also modelled as a baby for a local Danish packaging of Pampers.

She went to New York City with her soccer-team and  was approached about her modeling potential, back in Denmark she told her family about it. After a while Friend of an aunt contacted Unique Models and soon she started modelling local. Two years later she debuted the F/W '11 international shows, she walked a total of 54 shows in Paris, Milan and New York. 

Last year she also got to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time! Like her bestfriend and now roomie Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Josephine recently walked Chanel's Metiers d'Art 2013 show in Dallas and ended the year with walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time!

Now, she's the face of Armani Exchange and Tommy Hilfiger Denim's Spring/Summer 2014 campaigns and she's a regular for H&M and Victoria's Secret. 

The Society Management
For awhile Josephine has been openly discussing about the fact that both her parents are members of the LGBT-Community. She and her little brother Oliver call themselves "Rainbow Kids". Her mother is a lesbian and her father is gay, her mother has decided to place an ad in a local lgbt-magazine looking for a donor, it's kind of funny, "my life started in a magazine and now all I do is appear in magazines." She told Buzzfeed tha Growing up in Denmark was easy as they're not judgemental at al. As a kid her mom gave her an advice -for life, I'd say, "you have to be really open about it, it's important not to hide who you are, because as soon as you are embarrassed about something people are going to mock you about that." That is why in school she never really got teased. 

She also said that she was the one who dragged her parents to Gayprides, she was so proud of them. She wants other kids from gayparents to know that it's not that bad, because for instance "you're sure your parents love you, because they really, really wanted you in the first place. Gay people having a baby — it's never just, "Whoops!""

I'm pretty sure we'll see more of Josephine in 2014, looking forward to it!

Alexander Wang X H&M

So today I woke up with reading such great news, this year H&M will collaborate with none other than Alexander Wang! This is actually a collaboration which I'm very excited for and it's their first collab with an American designer. Isabel Marant X H&M last year wasn't as great as I expected, maybe because I had high expectations.

Alexander Wang took Instagram to announce this (hugeeee) collaboration, his first post on the social-media platform. He posted two videos on the official account of Alexander Wang. The first video starts with field lights that turn on and after the countdown clock has counted down to zero, WANG X H&M appear on the scoreboard with the numbers 11:06, so it's kinda safe to say the collection will be available on November 6!

Just 6 months, 3 weeks and 3 days until we can splurge on it!
Are you as excited as I am?

It Happend, Kim Kardashian with fiance Kanye West on the Cover of Vogue US April 2014

First let me say that this cover came out great, Kim Kardashian looks stunning in that Lanvin dress with her dapper Fiance Kanye West in Saint Laurent holding her tenderly. They look super cute on the cover.
I've read lots of things that people had to say about the cover and it was as expected not positive, some were claiming that vogue has gone too low and that this cover is the end of the world, vogue and Anna Wintour.

Why the Fuss?
To be honest I don't get the fuss, I mean hasn't Vogue US been putting celebs on their cover for years now?The last model on a Vogue US cover was Kate Upton back in June 2013 and before that it was Kate Moss who graced the September Issue in 2011. Apparently Anna Wintour once said that she saved Vogue by putting celebrities on the cover. I don't think there would be a fuss if Mindy Kaling or Emily Blunt would be put on the cover (they're both featured in the issue) and no, I am not comparing them to Kim K. but still. Sure you don't have to like the cover, but why would people say all these nasty things, claiming she's a pornstar.. Come on. She made an adult video with her boyfriend in 2003, that's eleven years ago, and it leaked in 2007. Everybody makes mistakes but still everyone just can't seem that let that one go. We all know everybody just loves to hate Kim Kardashian.

Vogue named Kim and Kanye #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple , it's the first time a hashtag was used on a Vogue cover and it seems that social The cover was because besides the hashtag because there's also feature on ''Selfie-Made Kate Upton And the Rise of the Social Media Supermodel''

The cover of this April issue was shot by Annie Leibovitz, and will be available on March 30th.

What do you think about this cover?
