While Taylor Swift’s Ashish houndstooth dress at the MTV Video Music Awards came in for some criticism, there were no complaints over her sparkling red number that she donned in her duet with Nicki Minaj, with whom she had a recent Twitter spat.
   Spanish luxury jewellery brand Carrera y Carrera notes that the ever-popular singer wore its Círculos de Fuego ring in yellow gold to complement the dress.
   While it was clear that there were no hard feelings between Swift and Minaj, which stemmed from Swift mistakenly taking exception to something Minaj said, the spectacle that the VMAs have become meant that the rapper wasn’t afraid to court controversy with her original target, Miley Cyrus, who hosted the event. A bit of verbal sparring took place on-stage as Minaj accepted her award for her video for ‘Anaconda’.
   Our video features clips from the VMAs, where the names of today shone on the red carpet: Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Britney Spears, Chrissy Teigen, Demi Lovato, FKA Twigs, Gigi Hadid, John Legend, Karlie Kloss, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Pharrell Williams, Rebel Wilson, Rita Ora, Selena Gomez, the Weeknd, Tyga, Vanessa Hudgens, Wiz Khalifa and others.

Pandora has showcased its autumn 2015 collection with what it calls ‘nature-inspired pieces’, reflecting both bohemian and 1970s trends.
   The fairy tale-themed collections are headlined by the Majestic Feathers series, inspired by the phoenix, and featuring everything from stud earrings to a necklace pendant in 0·925 sterling silver and cubic zirconia stones. Incredibly intricate and detailed, these autumn pieces begin at US$50 and now feature on Pandora’s US website. Other autumn additions begin at US$35.
   Pandora is also the official jewellery sponsor for New York Fashion Week, and has partnered with celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez for the occasion.
   Chavez suggests that the Majestic Feather earrings are the ‘perfect bohemian accessory’, and that one should mix metals and layer jewellery for Fashion Week. Suede, she adds, is the go-to fabric for the season.
   Pandora wearers are encouraged to share their autumn looks with the hashtags #ArtofYou and #Pandorastyle.

One of our favourite shows so far at New Zealand Fashion Week (check out our Instagram for regular updates from fashion editor Sopheak Seng) has been that of Stolen Girlfriends’ Club, with its Township Rebellion collection. International hairstylist Richard Kavanagh and Redken worked behind the scenes to give the collection—inspired by the supermodels of the 1990s—its look.
   Kavanagh notes, ‘The hair for Stolen Girlfriends’ Club’s show was luxe, alive, easy and free. Embellished with an oversized gold hairclip, the hair is centre parted with a soft bend and easy bounce.
   â€˜For the boys we had a range of different hairstyles so it was important to make them feel like they belonged to the same crew. There was long unkempt hair, crew cuts, and post punk rocker looks. All kept in place with a combination of Redken for Men styling products.
   â€˜Key products to create the look for the girls are Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine [RRP NZ$45], Redken Rootful 06 [NZ$36] and Redken Pillow Proof [NZ$36].’
   Kavanagh’s tips to re-create the look are below.

   1. To recreate the Stolen Girlfriends’ Club hair look, start with dry hair, put a few drops of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine through the ends of the hair and a few pumps of Redken Rootful 06 misted on to the roots and mid-lengths.
   2. Blow-dry on highest setting with boar bristle round brush.
   3. Finish with Redken Pillow Proof Two-Day Extender and, finally, pin just above the right ear with a gold barrette.

Tennis star Rafael Nadal is the new spokesman for Tommy Hilfiger underwear, as well as a Tailored collection and the TH Bold fragrance. The announcement, with a reveal of the fall 2015 advertising campaign featuring Nadal and shot in his home town of Mallorca, was made at Bryant Park on Tuesday, August 25.
   Joining Nadal and Tommy and Dee Hilfiger were Jane Lynch (Glee), Lake Bell (First Day of Camp), Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Martha Stewart, Chanel Iman, Constance Jablonski, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2015 cover girl Hannah Davis, Noah Mills, Arthur Kulkov, Akin Akman, Mary Alice Stephenson, bloggers Bryanboy, Danielle Bernstein and Sazan Barzani, and Tommy Hilfiger CEO Daniel Greider.
   Some of the celebrities present, including Iman, Jablonski, Davis, Mills, Kulkov and Akman, engaged Nadal in a pop-up tennis tournament at Bryant Park. As each team scored a point in the competition, their opponents had to remove a piece of clothing, eventually revealing the Tommy Hilfiger’s men’s and women’s underwear designs. Lynch and Bell played hosts from the umpires’ seat. Nadal, the 14-time Grand Slam winner, won in three consecutive games.
   Barzani ran a live Periscope feed from the event, while comedian Nate Dern, collaborating with Funny or Die, will reveal a series of videos that take a different perspective of the red carpet Q&As.
   The new underwear designs feature new fits, fabrics and deetails. A new four-way stretch technology and premium fabrics promise comfort and durability, according to the company. The Tailored collection features what it calls ‘sharp silhouettes, modern tailoring and rich textures.’ The TH Bold fragrance for men is described as suiting a wearer who has ‘a competitive nature and effortless self-confidence.’
   â€˜Since I first established my brand 30 years ago, we’ve always brought a unique twist to our designs and our advertising. Today’s event continues our tradition of bold, surprising campaigns and iconic ambassadors that celebrate our brand spirit and resonate with our consumers globally,’ said Hilfiger.
   â€˜I love how this event brings together fashion and sport with Tommy’s signature twist—it was the perfect way to kick-off my partnership with Tommy Hilfiger,’ said Nadal.
   The hashtag for the event is #tommyxnadal.

News in brief: Vidal Sassoon launches Infra Radiance Hot Air Styler; polarized lenses are in at Sunglass Hut

Polarized sunglasses are the trend for the southern spring–summer 2015–16, says Sunglass Hut—and it’s a prediction we agree with.
   Polarized lenses help with contrast, clarity and colour perception, but perhaps most importantly, they reduce reflections and minimize glare. The lenses contain a filter that blocks almost all glare, which can be eight times more intense than sunlight. It’s an especially important function in the harsh antipodean sunlight.
   The retailer notes that while the lenses are more commonly associated with sport, they are hitting the consumer market more widely, and 50 per cent of its range is now available with them.
   Prada, Ray-Ban, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Vogue Eyewear are among the brands offered with polarized lenses by the Luxottica-owned retail group.
   Vidal Sassoon is adding the Infra Radiance Hot Air Styler to its range, which cleverly combines a styling brush and hair-drier in a single device. It adds infrared heat with the standard airflow through its 38 mm thermal brush, helping to heat the hair more evenly and preserve its natural moisture. There’s a soft, rubberized handle to help with grip, and a swivel cord for ease of use at home or at the office. With a retail price of £34·99, the Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Hot Air Styler hits UK retailers, including Boots, Tesco and Asda, in September.
