The latest (and greatest) ad campaigns

There’s been a spate of fresh new ad campaigns starring male and female celebrities and up-and-coming young models.

Gwyneth Paltrow follows in the iconic footsteps of actresses Brigitte Bardot and Farrah Fawcett in her new campaign for Max Factor, while Winona Ryder – a former face of Marc Jacobs – can be seen in the new Rag & Bone Autumn 2014 ads.

Jimmy Choo has also released its first image and video of the undeniably handsome Kit Harington (aka Jon Snow in Game of Thrones), promoting the new fragrance ‘Man’.

Lastly, Calvin Klein‘s enduring CO One fragrance has received a fresh new look and cast. Twenty years ago, the black-and-white images featuring Kate Moss and other models made history as some of the sexiest ever. To celebrate its 20 years of ads, Calvin Klein is launching a new global campaign, shot by Mario Sorrenti.

A feast of sexiness, it stars singer-songwriter Dev Hynes, models Edie Campbell and Ali Michael and others. 

Tinder co-founder accused of sexual harassment

Yesterday, news broke that Justin Mateen, co-founder of the mobile dating app Tinder, has been removed from his position pending a sexual harassment investigation against him by the company’s former vice president of marketing, Whitney Wolfe. Wolfe also names Tinder CEO Sean Rad, saying he witnessed and condoned Mateen’s abuse. It is said that Mateen sent messages containing ‘inappropriate content’ to Wolfe, naming her a

‘slut,’ a ‘gold digger’ and a ‘whore’. She also claims that both Rad and Mateen refused to credit her as a co-founder even though she was among the five people who started Tinder. The reason for this? They told her: ‘You’re a girl.’

Nadal knocked out of Wimbledon by teenager

Two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal lost to the 144th-ranked, 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios of Australia (7-6, 5-7, 7-6, 6-3) in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

Kyrgios made history, being the first man in more than 10 years to reach the quarterfinals in his Wimbledon debut. He’s also the first player ranked outside the top 100 to beat the No. 1 man at a Grand Slam tournament since the 193-ranked Andrei Olhovskiy defeated Jim Courier at Wimbledon in 1992.

ANC MP Lindiwe Michelle Maseko recently suggested that the SABC broadcast the national anthem twice a day – at 6am and noon – to boost morale and encourage South African patriotism. Maseko says that she feels that South Africans are not patriotic enough.
