Going back slightly on comments she made to Italian Vogue back in 2008 that she would never produce a collection for H&M as it would ‘confuse the brand’ Donatella Versace has laid out her plans for the next superstar collection for the Swedish discount retailer due to drop this Autumn, could it have anything to do with the rumoured 350 staff that have been laid off this year alone at the former powerhouse?

H&M announced its latest designer collaboration with one of the world’s most iconic fashion brands Versace following the latest bow of menswear for SS/12 in Milan. Launching in Autumn 2011 and designed by Donatella herself, the men’s and women’s collection will reference the heritage of the brand with Rock ‘n’ Roll influences – which will even spill over into some homewear pieces.  Donatella took to the catwalk last night following the Versace men’s catwalk show during Milan Fashion Week (above) to preview one of the pieces prior to the official announcement this morning.  Available from 17th November in 300 stores nationwide and online you can expect lots of leather plus a vibrancy of print, colour and exuberance.  Donatella has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M that launches from 19th January 2012.

25 Oct

Over to MODELS.com and to the world number 19 male model Marlon Teixeira, with several top campaigns coming up this season, the Armani Exchange favourite looks set to get our magazine pages scorching for a little while longer . . .


beauty: looking for adam?

3 Oct

back to chosenmodels.com for more shots of the hot, hot, hot Adam Franklin.

We last featured Adam on our new talent post and the response was phenomenal so due to popular demand, and mostly because he’s native to chicago and as we’ll never bump into him here in London, it gives us another chance to look at his photos.  So, thanks for sharing the lovely Adam one more time chosenmodels.com . . . we’ll check back soon.


beauty: alex o’loughlin hots up hawaii five-0

2 Oct

See more beauty by clicking juuuuuust here.

The Jennifer Lopez ‘come-back’ (!!!) movie the back-up plan was saved from being voted as the worst movie ever by AP. only by the sheer volume of screen time given over to hot Australian actor Alex O’Loughlin, and whilst we never watch TV, now it seems as though we may have a reason to tune into the remake of television legend Hawaii Five-0.  O’loughlin stars as the lead Steve McGarrett in the show which has just aired in the US and enjoying a pretty good run so far and judging from the image below taken on set he hasn’t been slacking at the gym.  Say aloha!


beauty: backstage is where the true action happens!

13 Sep

We’re always looking for where the actions at, and imagine our excitement when we discovered just how much action there is backstage, on backstageat.com, so we may be a little late but here’s some exciting photos of backstage castings for mens week at New York fashion week.

Yeah, we’ll be watching backstage a little closer next time too!


beauty: zac efron comes of age and has a james dean moment.

13 Sep

Over to Wonderland magazine for their 5th birthday issue and the rather grown up looking Zac Efron.  Photographed by Ben Weller, Zac looks every inch the teen heart throb, so we thought we’d share a few photos with you here . . .


beauty: now thats what we call a window display!

8 Sep

Now we know that Kim Cattrall worked the look back in the 80’s movie mannequin, but hey if it worked for her . . .

90210 actor Matt Lanter’s public semi nudity was all in the aid of his craft.  The 27-year-old star was actually shooting the shirtless scene for the new season of the hit CW show, in which he plays Liam Court, in the window of Reiss on Robertson Boulevard in Beverly Hills yesterday.

We did say that we were loving Reiss this season . . .


beauty: noah mills is mr sex and the city

6 Sep

OK so we know that for most of us Sex and the City 2 was like a million years ago, but we at AP. feel like it’s as fresh as a daisy, and part of that reason must be down to the fact that one of the stars, Noah Mills, seems to be everywhere these days.  Noah seen (above) in a shot from the movie was recently photographed for Grazia magazine and the photos (below) speak for themselves . . .

If you like Noah – read more about him here.

The D&G poster boy was born in TorontoCanada and grew up in BaltimoreMaryland. After eighth grade he went to boarding school in Australia. A regular on the New York party scene Mills has become one of the few male models to reach across the media spectrum to become one of one a handful of the true male supermodels.

Well we wouldn’t want to argue with that now, would we?


life: screaming girls, police, blocked roads? jls???

1 Sep

No, not beatlesmania but JLS mania.  Oxford street was reduced to a camp site today as literally thousands of girls (and the odd boy or two) camped outside Selfridges overnight to catch a glimpse of britains hottest boyband, the screams could be heard halfway along the world famous shopping street as the boys drew close and even police had to be called to assist with the hoards of fans . . .

The boys who were in town signing copies of their new book didn’t seem fazed by the attention at all.  In fact they seemed to revel in it . . . Move over boys – there is a new fab four in town!
