Mango is back!

The fabulous Mango is back!

Alexander Wang has just released the full video for the T by Alexander Wang campaign starring Chris Kattan as his famous Saturday Night Live character Mango!

Featuring a perfectly odd supporting cast, including model Behati Prinsloo as herself, former NHL player Sean Avery as Mango’s assistant, Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan, Harper’s Bazaar’s Derek Blasberg as himself covering Mango’s new rival Sharaya J, and a split-second cameo of Alexander Wang, it’s all hilarious. Clad in an Alexander Wang crop top and short shorts, Mango delivers some doozies:

“I’ve been hiding in my fortress of Mangohood with my shih tzu, Constance. She’s my sober companion dog.”

“Well that tastes like Maggie Smith from “Downton Abbey.’ Just get me the spirulina with a green juice.”

“Oh my God, I’m worrying about my worry lines again. Am I getting more worry lines? See this big one here, this big one? I got that when Rob Lowe left ‘The West Wing.’”

“To be da Mango. Can you describe what it’s like to be a rainbow? Can you ask a beautiful flower, ‘Hey, beautiful flower, can I be you for a second?’”

“I stayed in hiding until someone from Alexander Wang came to me and told me the world needed me. It was like getting slapped in the face with a giant wang.”

I miss Chris Kattan! I thought this video was hilarious!

Sneak peek at new Burberry ad featuring Kate Moss and Cara Delevinge!

Burberry announced this morning via Instagram that Cara Delevinge and Kate Moss will star in the brand’s new fragrance campaign, which will debut later this year.

Of course, the Internet has already gone abuzz with excitement, reposting the photo on tons of fashion social media accounts.

Moss, who at 40, still has plenty of staying power in the industry and Delevigne, who has become the star of pretty much every runway and has even been referred to as “the new Kate Moss,” are two of the biggest names in fashion. Add that to the fact that the two appear to be friends, and it was only a matter of time before they teamed up for a project.

Try to contain your excitement for the greatness this ad will undoubtedly bring. In the meantime, hopefully this Instagram photo can hold you over until it comes out.

Can’t wait to see the whole campaign!

Plus-size retailer Torrid has named Australian model Georgina Burke as the first-ever face of their brand, and giving her the cover of their swimsuit catalogue as well as online campaigns and in stores. The partnership will be the first major plus-size ad campaign we’ve seen in a while. 23-year-old Burke was the perfect choice for the role! She’s beautiful! Burke explains:

“Sixty-eight percent of women in America are over size 12. Why can’t we be put in the magazine as well? Who’s to say we aren’t good enough to be in there? What’s wrong with putting me as the face of a company or using us [plus-size women] in a magazine or putting us out there in a fashionable way?”

Head over to Torrid to shop the collection.
