Ajay Rochester -- who hosted Australia's version of "The Biggest Loser" -- just had 1.5 Liters of fat sucked out of her body ... but first, she bellied up to a 1,000 calorie breakfast of bacon, eggs and hash browns.
Ajay hit up Dr. Aaron Rollins Friday at Elite Body Sculpture in Bev Hills, and got something called an Airsculpt Laser Lipo -- a fancy name for precision fat sucking. We're told Ajay was 100% awake for the procedure -- no needles, no cutting, no stitches -- while the doc targeted her chin and arms.
Ajay says her ultimate goal is rocking sleeveless dresses and tops -- not that she was thinking about that when breakfast was served.
Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her second child, Clarence House confirms
A statement said the Queen and members of both families were delighted with the news.
The palace said that - as when she was pregnant with Prince George - the duchess was suffering from very acute morning sickness and was being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.
Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted he was "delighted by the happy news that they're expecting another baby".
The couple's second child will become fourth in line to the throne, moving Prince Harry further down the line of succession.
Clarence House said: "Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child."
The duchess's morning sickness meant that she would no longer accompany Prince William on their planned engagement in Oxford on Monday, Clarence House said.
Catherine had been due to join William in formally opening a £21m China study centre at Oxford University.
The sickness - called hyperemesis gravidarum - is a condition that may require supplementary hydration, medication and nutrients.
The duchess had been due to carry out her first solo overseas tour in Malta later this month.
The baby announcement came two months after the couple's first child, Prince George, had his first birthday.

The couple's first child Prince George of Cambridge was born on the 22nd July 2013.
Pocket rocket popette Ariana Grande (this Pulitzer worthy intro tho) has an extra-large list of diva demands for her Australian chatfest.
And most of them are don’ts rather than dos, resulting in the abrupt cancellation of Grande’s photo shoots today.
All media who were granted an audience with the 21-year-old singer were instructed to steer clear of delicate topics during her promotional visit this week.
DON’T ask questions about:
(2) Mariah Carey
(3) Sam & Cat/Jennette McCurdy
(4) Working/collaborating with Justin Bieber
(5) Her grandfather passing away
Photographers were also given last-minute instructions from the Problem star’s minders.
*DON’T use natural light.
*DO shoot only from the left side of her face.
Grande’s first sitting for mX newspaper was a stop-start affair, with the singer checking each frame after it was taken and asking for shots she wasn’t pleased with to be deleted. After a few minutes she left the hotel suite, complaining to her reps that she was unhappy with how her top looked in the poses.
Everyone assumed she had just gone back to her room at The Darling Hotel to change her outfit.
The remaining photographers waiting to capture the Bang Bang pop star’s close-up had already been put through their paces by the entertainer’s creative directors.
Grande insists on being shot from the left and if you have lights, use those instead of the sunlight streaming in through the window on the gorgeous Sydney spring afternoon.(lol)
After another 20 minutes of waiting for Grande to switch outfits, one of her representatives returned, demanding the mX photographer delete all his photos.
He refused and was later approached at his car by a member of the singer’s security team who attempted to prevent him closing the tailgate on his car as he stowed his equipment.
The singer then ditched the rest of the happy snaps session for various newspaper outlets including News Corp Australia.
Taylor Swift isn't only unleashing her kickass powers on her ex-boyfriends when it comes to her upcoming, new album. The singer reportedly wrote an entire diss track on the album slamming fellow pop singer Katy Perry.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor revealed that her new song called "Bad Blood" isn't about an ex, but the years of abuse from another unnamed woman in the business. While everyone can speculate who it's about, we're pretty sure the track is about Katy. Why?
Well, in the interview, Tay said that she has been hanging on the fence about whether or not this girl is a real friend for awhile. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"
She continued,"[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business...She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational, you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."
Last year three of Taylor's backup dancers left during her Red tour to dance for Katy's world tour instead. Taylor got back at her for that during the "Roar" plagarism drama days by inviting Sara Bareilles to sing "Brave" on stage with her. Of course, she called the song "an original" during their performance.
What it comes down to it, all of this most likely comes from both Katy and Taylor's infamous relationships with John Mayer. Although, Tay insists "Bad Blood" isn't about a guy, and strictly about business. Don't you think it's awful funny this comes out after new reports just started floating around that Taylor and John have been hanging out again? Hmm...
Do you think "Bad Blood" is about Katy? If so, whose team are you on?
I was 18. Two boys who were just discovered in bed together doing something, and it was shocking. I was just finishing an essay in the school dining hall at breakfast, and I looked out the window and heard a commotion, a pair of feet scampering by, and then a horde just charging after shouting, “Wankers! Faggots!” and I thought, “What the fuck is going on?” … [I later told them that] you have to learn acceptance at this school, and you have to go into the world as a better person, and you have to try and embrace the fact that people are different rather than defining yourself by not being like them. Who cares that they’re gay? You have to coexist.”
— Benedict Cumberbatch, whose film The Imitation Game about gay hero Alan Turing opens this fall, discussing a homophobic incident from his days at a boarding school with The Daily Beast
Marin Cilic defeated Kei Nishikori, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3, at the United States Open on Monday night to win his first Grand Slam title.
A showcase for the next generation in men’s tennis, the match was the first Grand Slam final since the 2005 Australian Open that did not include Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray.
The 14th-seeded Cilic, who defeated No. 6 Tomas Berdych and No. 2 Roger Federer on his way to the final, is the lowest seed to win the U.S. Open since Pete Sampras won the 2002 tournament as the No. 17 seed.
With Cilic facing the 10th-seeded Nishikori, this was the first time since Patrick Rafter defeated Greg Rusedski in 1997 that the U.S. Open final featured two players outside the top 10 seeds and two players making their Grand Slam final debuts.
Cilic, 25, was a top-10 player for several weeks in 2010 after reaching the semifinals at the Australian Open, but had not been able to return to those heights.
Nishikori, a 24-year-old from Japan, was attempting to become the first man from Asia to win a Grand Slam singles title. Instead Cilic is the second Croatian man to win a major singles championship: His coach, Goran Ivanisevic, won Wimbledon in 2001.
Cilic hired Ivanisevic last year while serving a four-month doping suspension for ingesting a banned stimulant. Ivanisevic has rejuvenated the 6-foot-6 Cilic’s game by emphasizing powerful serving
Didn't get to watch but I heard that Cilic played some great tennis. Amazing tournament for my boy Kei though...Beating the 5th, 3rd, and 1st seeds consecutively and giving us this gem
Hayden Christensen goes in for a hug with his mom Alie as he drops her off for her departing flight at LAX Airport on Saturday (September 6) in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old actor is originally from Canada, so it’s likely she’s headed back there.
The whole family is gearing up for his girlfriend Rachel Bilson to give birth soon! The day before, Hayden was spotted taking his mom for a sunny sightseeing hike in Hollywood.
Teen Wolf cast members Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, and more weigh in on the LGBT characters who run with the wolf pack.
In the world of Teen Wolf, homophobia is nonexistent. Among the characters on the show, differences in sexuality are accepted with the same ease as differences in eye color, and a romance between gay characters is depicted in the same manner as its straight counterpart. This gained the show a loyal pack of LGBT fans who have followed the adventures of Beacon Hills High School’s supernatural students over the past four seasons.
We recently sat down with several members of the show’s cast and asked them to weigh in onTeen Wolf’s inclusion of LGBT characters and the positive impact the show’s homophobia-free world is having on young viewers.
Tyler Posey (Scott McCall)
On the fan reaction to Teen Wolf’s inclusion of LGBT characters:
We do it in such a natural way. It’s not forced or over-the-top or anything like that. I think it’s perfect and natural, and I think the kids that watch the show really do respect the way we include gay characters. That’s why Charlie (Carver) and Keahu (Kahuanui) — the characters they play are so popular. We love it and we’re happy to be able to show kids that it’s OK to be who you are.
Tyler Hoechlin (Derek Hale)
On Teen Wolf’s inclusion of LGBT characters:
I love that it’s a freedom that we’ve had with MTV, and (executive producer) Jeff (Davis) has done a great job of keeping that a central part of the show. It’s an important thing that the demographic that’s watching the show is being introduced to that and is able to see it. I think it’s a fantastic thing that we’ve been able to integrate into the show.
J.R. Bourne (Chris Argent)
On Teen Wolf’s portrayal of a world where homophobia is nonexistent:
For so long there weren’t any movies, TV shows, books, or comics for gay people to be able to go to and see themselves [reflected]. So to have the inclusion of gay characters be so nonchalant onTeen Wolf, it’s a complete pleasure to be a part of it, and I hope that it becomes a blueprint for more shows in the future.
Holland Roden (Lydia Matin)
On the importance of LGBT visibility on Teen Wolf:
I live under a rock in some ways, because I live in West Hollywood and I work on Teen Wolf. So, it almost seems strange for me talk about … LGBT issues and a lack of visibility because I’m in a space now where LGBT people aren’t invisible. But we need to remember it’s not like that everywhere, and a big part of the issue is a lack of visibility in some parts of the world. So I’m grateful for the visibility Teen Wolf offers.
Dylan O’Brien(Stiles Stilinski)
On the fan reaction to Teen Wolf’s portrayal of a world where homophobia is nonexistent:
It should be represented this way, and it makes me happy to be a part of a show that represents so well. To even think that some shows don’t or just don’t promote it as being a part of their show or don’t have time for it blows my mind. I’ve come to be very grateful for the fact that our show does, and it sets a good example. It’s important for [LGBT kids] to know it’s all good.
Shelley Hennig(Maila Tate)
On Teen Wolf depicting heterosexual and same-sex romance in the same light:
I like that we don’t make a big deal about it. It’s just a part of the show, and I think that’s how [the entire cast] looks at same-sex couples in life, because it’s normal to us.
Dylan Sprayberry (Liam Dunbar)
On the addition of his character’s gay best friend, Mason Dye, played by Khylin Rambo:
I think it’s great that our show has a lot of diversity. It’s awesome that we have new characters like Khylin’s representing the LGBT community, and it’s great that our show is not scared to represent anyone from [any background].
Ian Bohen (Peter Hale)
On being a part of a show that furthers visibility for LGBT youth:
I am honored to be on a show like Teen Wolf that presents an inclusive world for young gay and lesbian people. LGBT equality is one of the biggest causes I support, and the thought of bullying someone because of who they are, who they love, or because they’re not sure is horrifying to me. So if we can bring some visibility to young gay people, I’m beyond thrilled and I’m happy to stand with [LGBT people]. I know them. I work with them. They are my best friends and they deserve the same equal treatment as every other human being. If we can highlight that on TV, then all the better. Equality is coming and it can’t be stopped.
Cut it out, Megan Fox!
The 28-year-old said goodbye to her famous long locks, debuting a shoulder-length trim at a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles event in Australia on Monday. And the hair transformation doesn't stop there: The signature brunette also dyed her glossy caramel locks a darker chocolate shade.
And while Fox has indulged in a trim here and a color swap there, the brunette beauty has kept her long dark tresses fairly consistent throughout the years. We've seen the actress dabble in ombré and grow her hair out to below waist-length, but she's never done anything too drastic to her hair. And really, why should she? She's Megan Fox, and radiant cocoa locks are part of her trademark hotness.
Our verdict on the dark shorter 'do? We approve!
Megan Fox is Hotter Than Ever at 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Sydney Photo Call with Will Arnett!
I think she looks amazing, the new hair is gorgeous, darker hair looks so much better on her.
Last night, Under Armour spokeswoman Gisele Bündchen made it clear that she's working with some serious strength on The Tonight Show. After Jimmy Fallon showed off an awesome Instagram photo of Gisele holding a headstand on the beach, she taught him a move a little more his speed: a one-minute plank pose. Once the two tried to set up the exercise with proper alignment (his backside was up in the air more than we'd recommend), Gisele showed Jimmy some more challenging variations with a lifted leg and an added push-up. Watch to see for yourself, and try them at home!
Season 1 of MTV’s Faking It ended with — well, a bang. After Amy (Rita Volk) revealed her romantic feelings for Karma (Katie Stevens) and got rejected, she fell into bed with Karma’s sort-of boyfriend Liam (Gregg Sulkin), who had just learned that Karma and Amy were only pretending to be in a lesbian relationship.
Yes, it’s complicated. And it’s going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Last month, BuzzFeed News visited the set of Faking It to talk to showrunner Carter Covington and the cast about what’s to come in Season 2, which premieres on Sept. 23.
Check out the exclusive Faking It Season 2 trailer, then read on for some teases about Amy and Liam’s big secret, the truth behind Lauren’s (Bailey De Young) pill-popping, and some very special guest appearances.
2. Get ready for some big-name guest stars, including Fifth Harmony.
Before we get into the plot of Season 2, let’s talk about the fresh faces coming to Faking It. BuzzFeed News has learned exclusively that Fifth Harmony will be making an appearance as “an all-girl band with an edge who cover pop music’s most memorable boy band songs,” per MTV. Also, as previously announced, Orange Is the New Black breakout star and Emmy nominee Laverne Cox will be guest starring as a very intense drama teacher.
4. Karma is going to go all out to repair her friendship with Amy.
It’s hard to come back from your best friend telling you she’s in love with you. And even harder when you rejected her. But all that’s on Karma’s mind when Season 2 begins is winning back Amy’s friendship. “Karma is trying to be the best friend possible because she knows she hurt Amy, and she doesn’t want to lose her,” Covington explained. But her tactics may be a bit over-the-top. “I’m really excited because one of my romantic gestures to Amy is, I get kind of that John Cusack Say Anything moment, where he stands outside with the speakers, except I’m actually outside her window playing for her,” Stevens said. “She thinks she’s doing this act that’s telling Amy how much she wants to be friends, not realizing how romantic it is.”
6. But there may be a future for Karma and Liam.
Despite the classic rom-com moment, for now, Karma’s feelings for Amy are purely friendly. But while Liam’s certainly pissed that Karma lied to him — and is harboring a major secret of his own — don’t rule out the possibility of more romance down the line. “I don’t think either of them have really experienced people in their life like the other,” Sulkin said. “I think Liam is obviously her first huge love, and I think, from Liam’s point of view, Karma is the first girl that he really noticed and saw and thought was unique and special. So I hope — I hope — that there’s a romance still possible. Obviously mistakes have consequences.” Speaking of that mistake…
7. Amy and Liam have different ideas of how to deal with their big secret.
“Liam is holding a secret from the love of his life, and Amy is also holding a secret from the love of her life,” Sulkin said. Don’t expect Amy and Liam to make the same mistake twice, but they do now have a special bond.“We have a relationship now between Amy and Liam that’s based on this horrible thing they did together,” Covington said. Amy knows that telling Karma will destroy her, but Liam is more conflicted because he hates lying. “This secret he has really starts to corrode him and his own sense of self-worth,” Covington continued. “As he feels more and more like he has to tell, Amy feels more and more invested that he can’t.”
9. We’re going to find out a lot more about Liam’s family. (why tho)
And it sounds like his home life is less than ideal. “We’re gonna learn more about his family and explore why he hates lying,” Covington said. “There’s definitely a few secrets there that Liam’s had to hide throughout his life and had to kind of grow up with, which kind of puts him on edge,” Sulkin said. “The reason he’s an artist is because of that. You can see that he’s been wounded and had a huge weight on his shoulders throughout the years.” Liam will also be doing some self-exploration, which means figuring out why he was drawn to a lesbian in the first place.

You can always tell that a sports story has crossed into the "bigger than the game" realm when the President of the United States takes the time to release a statement on it.
President Barack Obama, through White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, condemned Ray Rice's actions on Monday. Rice was seen in a surveillance video, released by TMZ on Monday morning, punching his then-fiancee and knocking her unconscious. The sporting world was outraged, leading the Ravens to cut the running back and the NFL to suspend him indefinitely. The league had been widely criticized for suspending Rice just two games for the incident.
Whether or not you think it's a good use of the President's time, here's what he had to say about Rice, via NBC Washington:
"The president is the father of two daughters, and like any American, he believes that domestic violence is contemptible and unacceptable in a civilized society," Earnest said. "Hitting a woman is not something a real man does, and that's true whether or not an act of violence happens in the public eye, or, far too often, behind closed doors. Stopping domestic violence is something that's bigger than football, and all of us have a responsibility to put a stop to it."
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley also released a statement on Rice:
"The video released this morning of this domestic assault was horrible, shocking, and reprehensible. Everyone can do more to help end the scourge of domestic violence. Please consider supporting the House of Ruth: http://www.hruth.org/, and learn about what Maryland is doing to reduce violence against women and children: https://data.maryland.gov/goals/violence.”
Netflix has done it again.
While the Broadcast Sitcom Assembly Line has generated shows ranging from the lukewarm (A to Z) to the downright languid (Mulaney), Netflix has trotted out (heh) BoJack Horseman, the rare show whose execution lives up to its ambition.
In this fall's stale comedy landscape, BoJack is like a breath of fresh air — and it's clear that Netflix has faith in its latest project, which was renewed four days after it premiered last month. The cartoon's just-go-with-it premise follows the title character (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up former equine star of the '90s hit sitcom "Horsin' Around" who's trying to write his memoir. The show really finds its footing by Episode 3, which skewers former child stars-turned-sexpots via a storyline about Sarah Lynn (voiced by Kristen Schaal), a young woman who played BoJack's adopted daughter on "Horsin' Around" and now bears more than a passing resemblance to Miley Cyrus. It's hilarious, but also dark and oddly resonant at times.
It's clear that, after the success of shows like Orange Is the New Black, Netflix has hit upon a winning formula with shows that don't fit neatly into one category. So why is BoJack Horseman funnier than any of the network sitcoms airing this fall? Here are
seven four reasons:
3. Think Archer meets Arrested Development. Much like on Arnett's other standout, Arrested Development, the jokes on BoJack come at a machine-gun, blink-and-you'll-miss-them rate, and are multilayered. While you're laughing at the dialogue during an argument between Bojack and Princess Carolyn, you might miss her landing on all fours after getting thrown out of his car. Or, if you're only half paying attention, the name of 14-year-old singer Sextina Aquafina's hit song, "My Clitoris Is Gynormous," may pass you by.
4. It's not just another dumb cartoon."I think of the show almost as a dramedy, in the way that some live action shows are," Bob-Waksberg says. "The way I pitched the show is it's going to be this wacky, fun, goofy cartoon show that gets gradually darker the further it goes. I think all the actors really liked that idea — that it wouldn't just be funny voices, that they get to do some real acting in addition to the silliness."
5. It lets celebrities show they can take a joke. The impressive list of Season 1 guest stars includes Stephen Colbert, Kristin Chenoweth, Patton Oswalt and Olivia Wilde, as well as Margo Martindale, Naomi Watts and Wallace Shawn playing outsize versions of themselves. Keith Olbermann also makes an appearance as Tom Jumbo-Gumbo, a blue whale news anchor who's the face of "MSNBSea." And other celebrities, like Andrew Garfield and David Boreanaz, find themselves the butt of running jokes. ("I had the idea — which is a really easy, dumb idea; I'm not the first person to make this connection — that Andrew Garfield would love lasagna and hate Mondays," Bob-Waksberg explains. "That just really made me giggle.")
6. It's not afraid to take risks — and they pay off. While network sitcoms tend to either play it safe when it comes to humor, or egregiously misfire (see: Dads), BoJack hits the mark both in terms of absurdity and poignancy. If you think a show about a horse with a drinking problem can't be moving, think again. "Netflix really trusts us," Bob-Waksberg says. "We don't get a lot of network notes. They're not coming back all the time like, 'Oh, this is too sad,' or 'This is too weird.' ... I've been in rooms where the creator has sold a show and then felt like the network didn't buy the show they wanted. They bought a show they thought they could craft into the show they wanted. And with Netflix, it feels like with all their shows, they like the show that is being pitched and they let the creator make that show. Which is so amazing."
So does anyone else watch this show? I am honestly suprised with how much I like it, I just finished season 1 and I can't wait for season 2.

The three British Islamic State militants responsible for guarding foreign hostages are nicknamed “The Beatles” by captives because of their recognizable accents.
Ringo Starr would prefer they weren’t.
The European jihadists are reportedly the most merciless with their hostages. One source told NBC News, “Whenever the Beatles showed up, there was some kind of physical beating or torture.” The British murderer of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff is named “John,” which some reports indicate is what fellow militants call him, while others suggest it’s a nod to John Lennon. (Yes, the same Lennon who sang, “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance.”)
Starr, the drummer of the iconic band, told British media that equating the brutal militants to the peace-promoting Fab Four was “bull—-.”
“What they are doing out there is against everything The Beatles stood for,” Starr said. But the musician acknowledged that there’s nothing he can do about it.
Meanwhile, a former Islamic State, also known as ISIS, member told CNN this week that using a British man to carry out the executions of Foley and Sotloff was likely a deliberate effort by the insurgents to “project the image that a European, or a Western person, executed an American so that they can showcase their Western members and appeal to others outside Syria and make them feel that they belong to the same cause.”
Pregnancy rumors are surrounding Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old daughter Paris today after paps caught her on a dinner date sporting what looked like a baby bump.
A source was quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: “I saw her at dinner and she twice made a toast drinking water instead of wine. That and the prominent stomach bulge got people talking.”
News that the troubled star may be expecting her first child comes just days after she was reportedly spotted looking at engagement rings with her supposed boyfriend.
Paris has stayed away from the spotlight for the past year while attending therapeutic boarding school Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah following her attempted suicide last June.
The teen – who has grown close to her biological mother Debbie Rowe over the past 12 months – was given the all-clear from doctors in May and is reportedly adamant she won’t return to the $14,000-per-month private school this fall.
If you liked the first "America's Next Top Model" cycle with guys, wait until Cycle 21 really gets going -- it's a lot more dramatic and a lot sexier, promises judge Kelly Cutrone.
"To be honest, last season I was like,'Are you kidding me? How can you have so many hot kids of the opposite sex in the same house and no one's hooking up?' This just a dis to young people everywhere," she tells Zap2it.
The aspiring models were all locked in a house together with very little access to the outside world, but still there was just one (sort of innocent) showmance in the bunch.
"It's the one time in your life you don't have to work, you have no texts, there's nothing else to do. You get free alcohol and you're getting paid to model. What more do you want? I didn't get it," Cutrone says.
Thankfully, the casting department recruited a bunch more single and ready to mingle
"This season is good because the girls are a little spicier and the boys get sucker-punched a lot quicker. There's some interesting play between the girls and the guys."
Of course, Cutrone and her fellow judges aren't really privy to the in-house dynamics but information does leak out to them during the judging sessions.
"We don't ever get to see everything that happens in the house but for sure I think it's a lot more drama this season. It's a good season. The cast was really good and there are some shockers. We'd hear things on the judging panel and we'd be like, 'What?' There's a lot of those shocker moments."
"America's Next Top Model" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Yes, this show is still on. Thoughts on tonight's episode? Denzel's facial hair weave is atrocious.
"Three names epitomized the fashion world in the ’90s – designers Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen, and their muse, Kate Moss. The trio are the focus of New York Post writer and editor Maureen Callahan’s new book Champagne Supernovas. This dishy ride through the 1990s fashion world takes readers behind the catwalk, when the ‘heroin chic’ look was mainstream, Jacobs was designing his now famous ‘Grunge’ collection, and the tortured McQueen was breaking rules with his outrageous runway shows."
"Champagne Supernovas: Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, and the '90s Renegades Who Remade Fashion" puts readers in the front row and three of the era's biggest names in the catwalk spotlight.
Author Maureen Callahan contends that the waifish, plain models and thrift-shop grunge aesthetic of '90s fashion was an antidote to the "Glamazons" and gold-plated excess of the 1980s. There was a hunger for authenticity, and no one kept it more real than designers McQueen and Jacobs, and their muse, model Kate Moss.
Rising above childhoods marked by insecurity, financial instability and a yearning to escape the conventional, they had an unquestionable and enduring influence on modern fashion.
The book's title has three clever meanings: "champagne supernova" is a lyric from a psychedelic song by the '90s band Oasis and can refer to bubbly in a martini glass rimmed with cocaine. A supernova is when a star gets so bright it explodes, the perfect metaphor for the three profiled in the book, who each flame out at least once, but come back fighting.
The pace is as quick as an H&M runway knockoff. Callahan's prose is tight, and she stitches together momentum and suspense by alternating chapters on the trio. However, it's easy to lose track of the many minor players when the narrative switches focus and the timeline bounces around.
A page turner filled with juicy behind-the-scenes tales of partying and bad behavior, the book describes all three figures as damaged but scrappy. Style-watchers will love the backstage drama, and pop culture fans may gain new appreciation for design as an art form.
A writer and editor for the New York Post, Callahan doesn't sentimentalize, and her style is blunt and detailed. She didn't speak to any of her subjects, relying on print sources and interviews with their friends and colleagues to fill in the blanks.
Callahan likens the industry to a giant chessboard, with fashion houses moving players around, and eager, young designers as pawns in their game. Many ambitious designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, Tom Ford, McQueen and Jacobs, wanted the status of running a line at Perry Ellis, Gucci, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton, but all said they were miserable once in the spot.
The corporations gave them little creative control while demanding a backbreaking productivity rate.
Moss — referred to as the "grunge goddess of the U.K."— quickly rose from a skinny, flat-chested teen with crooked teeth to international superstar. Early black-and-white photographs by documentary photographer Corrine Day that show her staring into the camera with messy hair and no makeup got the attention of Calvin Klein.
"This was Corrine showing the world what these avatars of perfection really looked like. (She was) codifying a new kind of glamour, one informed by imperfection, lassitude, vice, decay," Callahan writes.
Klein — whose company was on shaky ground — chose Moss for his stripped-down ad campaign, which turned the brand around and made her a household name.
As she matured, her unique style emerged, mixing high-end designer items with vintage finds, dresses with sneakers and shorts with rain boots. Callahan argues that Moss is the most influential model in history, inspiring fashion lines from paparazzi street photos and popularizing staples like skinny jeans and ballet flats.
McQueen was an artist who realized his darkest fantasies of sex and violence in the outrageous clothing and accessories on his runways, Callahan maintains. His early collections were both panned and celebrated for breaking rules and pushing boundaries, and the book's photographs illustrate the audacity of his shows.
Jacobs is a genius at identifying trends well before the mainstream. Kids in New York's East Village inspired his now-famous "Grunge" collection, which was ridiculed and got him fired, but now informs fashion standards. Often fusing street chic with luxury, he's known for his innovative whimsy, like reinventing the classic Louis Vuitton bag with graffiti-inspired colors.
Callahan emphasizes the connection between '90s fashion and other art forms, citing the movies "Trainspotting" and "Kids," and bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. "There is a through-line from the minimalism of Calvin Klein's early '90s ad campaign with Kate to the aesthetic Steve Jobs created at Apple ... and a general public more attuned to design than ever," Callahan writes.
McQueen, Jacobs and Moss were ahead of their time, Callahan argues. They took risks that caused personal and professional downfalls, but came back to create again. They'll be remembered as pioneers who defined what is beautiful, edgy and cool.
Marc Jacobs may be New York’s fashion darling, but according to a new book, he remains estranged from his own family after a complicated upbringing. “Champagne Supernovas,” a new book by the New York Post’s Maureen Callahan, delves into the designer’s life, including the depths of his estrangement from his brother, sister and uncle.
His parents worked at the William Morris Agency in New York, but Marc’s father died when he was 7. His mother Judy, who remarried twice, suffered from mental illness. Marc’s uncle Jeffrey Weisbord told Callahan the designer and his siblings were neglected after their father’s death. “My sister went on a cruise and left the kids with the housekeeper, who was having parties,” he said. Social services stepped in.
Marc was in his teens when he went to live with his fashionable grandmother Helen on the Upper West Side, while his siblings, Julie and Paul, went into foster care in New Jersey. “That’s when Marc stopped communicating with his sister and brother,” says Weisbord, who blames the grandmother, whom Marc describes as his first fashion muse. “She did everything she could to alienate him from everybody.” One of the last times Weisbord saw Marc was during a visit to his mother in a psychiatric hospital, saying Marc seemed “uncomfortable.”
Callahan tells us that the designer’s sister is a New Jersey housewife and his brother works in real estate in California. While they did not return calls, Callahan learned Jacobs did reach out to his sister once, sending her a wedding gift of Champagne flutes. Weisbord says he has repeatedly tried to contact Marc, including when his mother died. Neither Marc nor his siblings attended their mother’s funeral. While his rep didn’t get back to us, Marc has previously said, “I never believed that idea that you’re supposed to love the members of your family. I hate the idea of obliged feelings — I just think that’s a huge waste of time . . . I can’t think of anyone as detached from their family as I am.”
