Let’s hope Vogue isn’t in charge of editing Homeland
Vogue US have accidently cut off Homeland stars Claire Danes and Damain Lewis’ legs in their August issue. While Danes’ cover shot by Annie Leibovitz has her (and all of her limbs) looking flawless, the corresponding editorial spread is equally glamourous, it was just printed sans two legs. However, no one actually noticed the Photoshop faux pas as we’re all too excited about the prospect of season three coming to a screen (or laptop) near us soon.
ASOS now answering Aussie style SOS
Two days. Imagine that? That’s all it will take for your ASOS order to arrive thanks to the e-tailer’s new Premier service for Australian customers. For an annual flat fee of $49, Premier customers will receive their orders within as little as 48-hours in metro areas (72 hours for the country folk). Signing up to Premier also guarantees you early access to sales and exclusive discounts. Also, if that hot pink sequined poncho that you added to cart during a delirious 2am Saturday night shopping spree doesn’t quite fit, the new Returns Portal including same day courier collection is now available. Rumours that ASOS will be opening a bricks and mortar store down under are also swirling again as a new “Store Drop Off Service” is also in the pipeline.
Smart casual at the supermarket
Yogi and model Ashley Hart is the new solo face of Mix Apparel. For those who like to pick up a new wardrobe during their weekly grocery shop, ditch the freezer section for the fashion aisle and check out the new ColourScope collection next time you’re in Coles. Nautical stripes, smart (and wet weather friendly) anoraks and jerseys covered in polka dots are the stand outs from the new collection. Earlier this year Mix was named as one of the Australian labels who were producing their wares in Bangladesh, where many factories were found to be conducting their business in an unsafe and inhuman manner. Coles has since announced it plans to seek other manufacturing sites.

Fendi’s new fancy (and slightly fascist) digs
For its 90th birthday, Fendi is moving house. The 400 employees who are split between two offices in Rome will be relocated to the city’s Palace of the Italian Civilisation. The monument, which is referred to as the “Square Colosseum”, was built during the Second World War. It is regarded, by building buffs, to be one of the great examples of fascist architecture.

The shoot was staged in the middle of Times Square in June and was rumoured to be a film clip for the Francophile’s new album Random Access Memories.
