Jude Law's dancing techniques win him a yacht


In what has to be the most unexpected news story of the day, Jude Law dances his way into owning a yacht. OK, this isn't reality but rather a short film produced for Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky. 

In the film we see Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini aboard a beautiful Italian yacht, sipping whisky and just generally enjoying life. Then a wager takes place and Jude must dance to win the boat. Yeah, that's it in a nutshell. 

I suppose the whole message here concerns the man who has it all. What do you do when you have it it all? You drink Johnnie Walker and make silly bets that take months of planning to put into action. It's a sweet concept and one that works for a brand that's trying to position itself as the best of the best for discerning customers. Sure to be a hit with men for the concept and for women because it's Jude Law dancing (well, sort of dancing).

Hearst packaging their September fashion issues together to sell and carry as one this year


Hearst Corp took to instagram today to share a new and very interesting idea for the September issues. On August 19th, a trio of Hearst September titles will be sold together in a bundle. On Instagram, Hearst shares the above picture with the quote, "Hearst Magazines' Fall Fashion To Go combo pack hits Barnes & Nobles stands on August 19 featuring the September issues of @harpersbazaarus@marieclairemag & @elleusa #fall #fashion #septemberissues"

The trio is packaged with a price tag of $13.99, which is in fact a savings from buying the three individually. But savings aside, what we're happier to see than anything else is the carrier that the magazines seem to come in for each transport. We all know August is the worst for carrying fashion magazines. The September titles weigh more than most encyclopedias (if anyone even remembers encyclopedias). 

Conde, perhaps you should think about creating a carrier and packaged deal for the masses? Or better yet, why don't all the titles get together and just do a massive September issue courier service for the month. Oh, the arm muscles you would all save. 

Jada Pinkett Smith covers Net-a-Porter's The Edit this week

Jada Pinkett Smith The Edit cover

You will not recognize Jada Pinkett Smith in this week's issue of The Edit on Net-a-Porter. That's said with a sort of forewarning in my voice, however, it is quite interesting how differently she is photographed for the magazine. 

Within the digital pages of The Edit we see a side of the actress that is all chiseled cheekbones and power dressing. She is the picture of sophistication in designers such as Saint Laurent and Elizabeth and James. Interestingly enough there's isn't even the smallest hint of colour on set. Jada wears mostly little black dresses with the occasionally appearance of a bright white on garments. It's a must see shoot, full of beautiful images and stunning garments.

This season Chanel is giving us a look behind-the-scenes for their autumn winter 2014 campaign. The campaign, to be released in September issues, features models Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton

Watch Karl Lagerfeld as he follows these two around the boxing arena for the "Coco Coach" campaign. Now, would someone please tell me where I can get our head shaved and have double CCs sprayed into the void? Loving this hairstyle. Obviously for devote Chanel fans only.
