Clash between Cassi Van Den Dungen and Tahnee Atkinson Articl

Van Den Dungen is taking on West Australian beauty Tahnee Atkinson in the battle for the title and a modelling contract. The show will go to air live on Fox 8.

The girls will be judged on their catwalk skills and on the photos they have appeared in during the series.

An expanded panel of fashion notables headed by the show’s host, Sarah Murdoch, will assess the models’ potential for success.

Designer Alex Perry, model mentor Charlotte Dawson, ANTM style director Jonathan Pease, model agent Priscilla Leighton Clark, renowned fashion photographer Russell James and Harper’s Bazaar fashion editor Claudia Navone will make up the panel.

Van Den Dungen, 16, has been tipped by international modelling agents as being a star in the making.

But she has become known less for her modelling ability than for her unruly behaviour on the show.

Van Den Dungen was sent to anger management class, created headlines for her relationship with a man almost 10 years her senior, refused to give up smoking, had regular run-ins with other aspiring models on the show, and dropped the f-word during a catwalk appearance while the series was being filmed.

Fashion Talk : Is Megan Fox the new Angelina Jolie?

Angelina Jolie had better watch out, as the ‘world’s sexiest woman’, Megan Fox, may be just about to steal her Hollywood goddess crown.

With her tousled, raven-coloured hair, come-to-bed eyes and slender, model physique, Megan Fox is every man on the planet’s ideal woman. Or at least that is what the millions of men across the world thought when they recently voted her FHM’s “Sexiest woman in the world 2009”, a title she holds for the second year running.

Having recently toured the world to promote her latest film: ‘Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen’, 23-year-old Fox has become a red carpet premiere fixture, with her likeness to Angelina Jolie – who is eleven years her senior – ever-growing.

Physical similarities are aplenty: Flowing, dark hair, big blue eyes and an assortment of tattoos. But, now their sartorial choices seem to be merging, too: A shared love of ‘the-thigh’s-the-limit’ split dresses to flash their long, lean legs; a fondness for fail-safe LBD’s, and a fancy for strapless cocktail gowns. They have recently both sported creations by Armani Privé, the eye-wateringly expensive and exclusive couture range by Italian designer Giorgio Armani.

At 5ft 8, Jolie is thought to have two inches in height and in the region of five pounds on Fox, who weighs approximately 8 stone. Fox was a successful model before she turned her hand to acting, and relies upon a personal trainer to put her through her paces from home, although she admits: “I am very lazy”.

Jolie has attracted worldwide concerns for her willowy frame, which has fluctuated from when she was toned and voluptuous in her role as Lara Croft in the “Tomb Raider” films, to worryingly thin. It is claimed she follows a punishing exercise and nutrition regime.

Where romance is concerned, Fox has an on/off relationship with actor Brian Austin Green, who is best known for his part in the TV series, “Beverly Hills, 90210”. She has his name tattooed on her hip, and while it has been claimed that the couple are engaged, recent interviews suggest that they have since split.

Top-earning actresses of Hollywood

Angelina Jolie Jennifer Aniston

Angelina Jolie vacillates between two kinds of movies: award bait, like A Mighty Heart, and action films, like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The former earn her nominations and critical praise: She won an Oscar in 2000 for her work in Girl, Interrupted and a Best Actress nomination for last year’s Changeling. The latter earn her big bucks. Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where Jolie met her boyfriend, Brad Pitt, earned US$480-million at the worldwide box office. Last year’s Wanted brought in US$341-million.

Jolie’s cinematic butt kicking made her the highest-paid actress on our annual Celebrity 100 list. Between June 2008 and June 2009, Jolie earned an estimated US$27-million. Much of that came from her share of the profits on Wanted, but she also scored a fat upfront check for Salt, an action film originally slated to star Tom Cruise, in which Jolie plays a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy. Judging by scenes filmed on the streets of New York City, the film should have plenty of action to satisfy Jolie’s fans.

Karen Mulder’s modeling and fashion trends

Mulder’s recent history, which includes a suicide try and several outrageous (and public) claims of rape, kidnapping, prostitution and drug abuse within the industry, doesn’t detract from other, more credible sources detailing abusive conduct behind the external glamour and gloss of the business.

“Our persistent willingness to be taken aback by the notion that wealthy, powerful, older men, when left in charge of a younger, poorer, female workforce, might generally act as something less than gentlemen, is testament to the power the multibillion-dollar fashion industry wields as an expert creator of narratives,” Tatiana writes.

Rohini Bedi’s collections of formal and bridal wear

Rohini Bedi has announced the launch of new collection of formal and bridal wear . The lady of style and sophistication, set up her studio in the US in Costa Mesa, California. Her creativity is her buzzword and she does India proud, living and designing out of Orange County for Indians and other lovers of Indian fashion. She’s given a modern interpretation to the sari by reinventing the draping technique. Pooja Batra, another Indian based Icon adores her collection and even adorned one at the 2009 Academy Awards meeting her Viraasat co-star there. She believes that fashion should be wearable else there’s no fun.

So, what was the challenge being an Indian designer in the West, was the global conquest easy? “The fashion scenario in US is totally cosmopolitan. You find everything that you desire. Of course trends and styles are very different, because in India we combine contemporary aesthetics with modern silhouettes. Here, the fashion is more varied. You have to make designs which are liked by everyone. For me, it was a challenge to work in the West, I understood their fashion sensibility.”

The 90’s sensation, Pooja Batra, talking about Rohini’s collection said “There’s deep energy in Rohini’s designs, which is highlighted by the strong use of Indian colours. She’s one of the few Indian designers who gives an authentic feel of Indian design to women who love to wear saris, tunics and salwars. Very few designers, who have resettled abroad have been able to maintain their traditional touch and creativity. Most have westernised their styles. But not Rohini, “If you see her design aesthetic, it’s very Indian. The people in US love her vibrancy. They just love her cuts, colours and styles. India is the mood of the moment. We’ve made a global impact. Today the world is talking about Indian fashion. We have a huge pool of talent.”

Taking this liking to a new level, Pooja also agreed to showcase the collection by Rohini through a shoot wanting to frame Rohini’s brilliant style making her the everlasting picture for eternity shot by the Four-square man of the yesteryears, Amer Bedi.

Rohini Bedi’s dared to break into a market few brave to venture into. She’s styled Western women in her bold saris, tunics and Indian skirts. Rohini dips into festive colours, rich hand embroidery and weaves to create collections in shades of fuschia, flame red, emerald green and saphire blue. Her collection comprises of a very exuberant line of formal and bridal wear. Here’s a designer who has showcased her collection in London, Dubai, Germany, Vancouver, Toronto and France. She says, “Fashion to me means innovating within the mould and blending tradition into modern format. I like to take fashion beyond the concept of regular.”

Actress Megan Fox – A spot Light

Actress Megan Fox appears for a premiere of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” in Tokyo on June 9. This was the first stop in a two-week promotional tour for the film through Asia, Europe and the U.S., during which the 23-year-old native of Tennessee showed not only a knack for self-promotion with several loopy and provocative statements, but also a solid fashion sense.

Arriving at the Japanese premiere of the film that night, Fox wore a purple satin Donna Karan gown and a pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps ($365). Adding to her quirky appeal, Fox’s shoulder strap appeared eager to meet up with the long split of her gown.

Fashion isn’t just about clothes. Fox looked great that day, but instead of sitting like a mannequin during the press conference, she worked the room, first with a bit of a thumb nibble …

… then making friends with the photographers …

Later that night, Fox had Googlers the world over searching for “little black dress” with this Hervé Leroux LBD with transparent panels.

Back to classy in London on the 15th, Fox donned a black jersey gown by KaufmanFranco.

The backless gown scooped down into another cutout, but this one didn’t have any faux reptiles nestling on its edges.

Fox also amped up the hoops, let her hair flow over one shoulder and darkened the eye makeup to accentuate the dress. If she had lost her critics in Berlin, she won them back with this outfit.

That night, Fox tore up another red carpet with a ’50s-style look featuring an Armani Privé strapless dress and gold leaf earrings.

Last stop — Los Angeles, where Fox put the capper on a successful tour on Monday night by going back to KaufmanFranco for this sleek, white gown with a black belt and a pair of jeweled hoop earrings.

Finally, she walks off the runway and back to a career that is growing busier by the month. Fox has one movie currently filming, another in post-production and three more to which her name has been attached, according to imdb.com. In another year or two, we may know whether she can act as well as she can dress.
