The frameworthy issue sold 560,000 copies on the newsstand, 1,000 more copies than their most recent best selling September issue. WWD writer Stephanie D. Smith says, “The First Lady has been featured on the covers of Ladies Home Journal, More, Ebony, People and Us Weekly, however sales for those titles have varied. (According to Advertising Age, sales for the September issue of Ladies Home Journal with both her and husband President Barack Obama on the cover were 21 percent smaller than the year prior.) Obama is also featured on the April issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, along with Oprah Winfrey, and the May issue of Essence with her mother, Marian Robinson.“

Forget soft bouncy waves and glossy blow-dries. Hair for next summer is all about texture: slick, matt and the more messed up the better. At Friedrich Gray, hair went through a series of textured transformations as the show went on. Strands started off soft and straight, then a mixture of ghd Obedience Cream and ghd Shining Serum was heavily applied to the models’ ends for slick definition and worked its way up to glossy wet-look up ‘dos.
For camilla and marc, KMS International Director, Clive Allwright proved that the dirty next-day club hair look can still be sexy providing its done the right way. For that he blasted models’ strands with KMS California Hairplay Sea Salt Spray and applied Hairplay Dry Wax to the roots for extra definition and lift. “We repeated this four or five times so that the end result was almost like a slightly matted tendril,” he said backstage. The ends were twisted with Hairplay Clay Crème for added rock-chic glamour.
At Ginger & Smart, the clothes referenced the 80’s while the hair nodded towards the future. Sculpted, slightly messy egg-shaped ‘dos were pinned at the nape of the neck and the sides slicked with KMS Hairstay Max Gel.
The beauty about these textured looks? They don’t have to be perfect. Sexy disheveled styles for summer, here we come.
Brother and sister design duo Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman described their inspiration for this collection as sex, strength and skin but it could have had just as much to do with front row guest, WAG and social page staple Lara Bingle. Body-conscious, black dresses with zippers, gold cami’s and nude frocks with metallic glimpses all screamed the kind of vodka-fuelled sex that Bingle’s devoted followers dream about. Less lusty but more appealing were cool tanks, paired with slouchy denim shorts, relaxed silver knits and cool, simple strong-shouldered, thigh-skimming metallic dresses. It was a softer, more relaxed come on. While striped panelled dresses with knotted backs made our aphrodisiacs wear off slightly but, bold shouldered jackets that were part Balmain, part matador got the blood flowing again. Hats and tailored pants off to a sexy start to fashion week without the foreplay
