The Aussie label that caught James Bond’s attention

There’s an Australian star in new James Bond blockbuster Spectre, but their on-screen debut is easy to miss.

During a pivotal scene in the big-budget action flick, Bond girl Dr Madeleine Swann (played by French actress Lea Seydoux) is gifted a striking black lace dress which she then wears for some of the movie’s most gripping action.

Those in the know in the Australian fashion scene might find the detailed, delicate lacework familiar.

The dress is from Australian designer Lover, a brand launched from a market stall in Sydney’s Bondi market in 2001.

Designers Susien Chong and Nic Briand have since grown the little brand to a style up-and-comer which now sells on prestigious international retailers like Net-a-Porter and ShopBop and has two bricks-and-mortar stores.

The dress worn by Seydoux is called the Venus Fitted dress and, while it is not longer available, it retailed for around $1500.

Only the best for Bond.

The secret to shiny hair

…is glitter!

Bear with us. A new Instagram micro-trend (otherwise known as a trend which was born on Instagram and will most likely stay there) has seen women covering up oily hair or dark roots with some artfully placed glitter.

The result is a look which is part My Little Pony and part Miley Cyrus.

Known as #glitterroots, the trend is not for the faint hearted. Or for those who have office jobs.

Men can similarly get on board with #glitterbeard, although the resultant sparkly mess in your bed, house and life might not be worth the statement.

Hemsworths in pyjamas

Last week we decreed that the “dormcore” trend had well and truly seized Hollywood, prompting many a celebrity to step out in their jim-jams.

Turns out Liam Hemsworth is probably a regular reader of The New Daily as he heeded our advice and rocked a panda onesie to a television appearance just days later.

Complete with fleece and footsies, Hemsworth’s getup was an impressive commitment to the cause.

All the more reason to wear your ugg boots and flannel PJs in public.
