• Tom Ford is notorious for showing his collections each season to only a few choice editors and members of the press. Sometimes it can take months for us regular folk to see what he dished out that season. But this year, to appease the masses, Tom Ford has released a few photos of five looks from his upcoming Spring 2013 collection.
Praise the fashion gods! What do you think of the vibe Mr. Ford is giving for spring? (Vogue UK)
• Amanda Bynes says she’s starting a fashion line. I wonder what Oscar de la Renta might have to say about this… (People)
•United Colors of Benetton has unveiled their new UnHate campaign, featuring a few of the millions of unemployed youth ages 18-30 who want to work. The “Unemployee of the Year” ads show beautiful photos of young people from all over the world, their age, and their non-occupations. The goal is to help erase the stigma of the non-working young person as lazy (hear that, Mitt Romney?), and show that this is a huge problem, particularly for young folks at a time where they’re supposed to be building their careers. Attached to the campaign is a contest. If you’re unemployed (or underemployed), go to Benneton’s UnHate website and sumbit your ideas for projects you think need funding (and could help put young people back to work). Until October 14th, you can vote on the projects you think are most promising, and Benneton will put €5000 euros each toward the development of the top 100 ideas. (Vogue UK)
• Gabby Douglas is making her return to the small screen– but not for a gymnastics meet or high-profile interview. The two-time Olympic Gold medalist will make her acting debut on the CW Network’s Vampire Diaries. Douglas will not play herself. Hmm… I’m interested to see her flex her acting chops! (ONTD)
