Entertainment Style Introducing ‘dormcore’, a comfy new trend

Introducing ‘dormcore’, a comfy new trend

Twitter Facebook Reddit Pinterest Email

First, there was normcore, the clothing movement that advocated comfort over aesthetics.

Now that has been taken to the next level with dormcore, a style trend inspired by the dorm rooms of American colleges, that lets you wear pyjamas in public.

• Best dressed people of the Spring Racing Carnival
• ‘Sweat, snot, eye bags’: celeb mums post honest selfies
• Brace yourself for world leaders with man buns

Dormcore first reared its bedhead in late 2014 before fading into the background in favour of sproutcore, dandy wildmen and huns.

But thanks to a brave move from one man – actor Woody Harrelson – it’s back at the forefront of fashion once again.

Harrelson wore his pyjamas to a major Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 press event, despite the fact his fellow cast members were in their glad rags.

Here’s Woody, second from left, with his well-dressed colleagues.

Here’s a solo shot of the outfit, which features checked pyjama pants, a grey t-shirt and some socks.

Just to clarify, the man is not wearing any shoes. Just socks. This is a press event for a major blockbuster movie franchise.

Woody isn’t the only star to trade red carpet glamour for snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug style (that’s a technical term).

Heidi Klum, Selena Gomez and Rihanna have all flaunted their pyjamas in public in the last six months.

Finally, a trend people of all ages can get on board with. Footwear is optional, but extra points for fluffy slippers.

Gisele Bunchen’s new book costs $700

Supermodel Gisele Bundchenr recently released her brand new coffee table book. If you want to buy it – which you can’t, because it’s already sold out – you’ll need to save $700.

Yes, $700. That’s in US dollars too, so that’s actually around $980 in Australian dollars.

What do you get for such a steep price? Value-for-money things like photos of Gisele by famous photographers. You can get for free on her Instagram, but that’s not nearly as exciting.

The book is titled Gisele. Only 1000 copies were printed, all of them sold out on the day of release and all of the proceeds went to charity.

BREAKING: Lara Worthington cuts her hair

Put down that copy of The New York Times. Stop watching that special report on the Syrian refugee crisis. THIS is news.

Lara Worthington (nee Bingle) has cut her hair to a length slightly shorter than it was before she cut it.

Deep breaths, we know this is a lot to handle.

Style devotees are now faced with a dilemma – has the Worthington Pixie replaced the Bingle Bob on the list of jut-have hairdos?

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past six months, here’s the Bingle Bob:

Lovely. But so mid-2015. Boring!

Behold, the new ‘It’ haircut – the Worthington Pixie:

So far, there’s not much photographic evidence of this new haircut online, but we will be sure to keep you updated on any developments.

Then again, it will probably be the lead item on the nightly news, so we might not have to.
