Your guide to the Soccer World Cup sex rules

The action tends to happen on the field – and for some players there is no action whatsoever allowed off the field. That’s right, many players have been banned by their coaches from having sex for the duration of the World Cup, because they believe that sex can decrease a player’s performance during a match.

Annie Leibovitz dropped Kimye just before wedding day?

At a recent Cannes Lions event, Kanye West claimed that world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz backed out of snapping their wedding at the last minute, forcing them to get inventive.

‘Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up. This was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.’

Apparently West himself ended up Photoshopping the above photo – now the most liked pic on Instagram ever – for four days to get that floral wall just right. Shame.

Zuma focuses on South African economy

Last night, during his state of the nation address, President Jacob Zuma emphasised the need for economic growth – saying he hoped to lift annual growth to 5% by 2019. Zuma also took direct responsibility for improving social conditions, especially in the mining industry, which has experienced crippling strikes over the last two years.

He spoke about the need for decent work creation in a fight against poverty, which aims to better SA’s struggling economy. ‘To achieve (the target), we will embark on various measures and interventions to jump-start the economy. We have (thus) set this target during a difficult period.’

Kendall Jenner for Givenchy

After donning the pelvic bone dress that caused a massive media frenzy, we thought the teenager would take a bit of a rest. But no, being an It girl takes work. Jenner can now be seen in the latest ad campaign for Givenchy. Shot by Mert & Marcus and featured alongside models Jamie Bochert and Mariacarla Boscono, as well as Stephanie Seymour’s son Peter Brant Jr, Jenner looks fantastic in the Fall designs.  

Speaking of young, up-and-coming models, Jude Law’s son has just made his modelling debut. Rafferty Law, 17, recently strutted down the runway for DKNY’s menswear show in London. He has been signed to Select Model Management, which means we’ll be seeing a lot of him in the future. Not that we mind…

Gisele Bündchen replaces Kate Moss

Named the face of Chanel No. 5 and a string of other high-fashion and beauty brands, the Brazilian sensation is now fronting the Fall campaign for Stuart Weitzman. The brand ended their longstanding partnership with Kate Moss, allowing Bündchen this opportunity.

‘Gisele [is] such a seasoned professional. She exemplifies the Stuart Weitzman woman with her zest of life, love and family,’ said Weitzman.

Lovely ad.
