EVE AWARD RECIPIENTS
JENNI BYRNE Was political adviser to former Prime Minister Stephen Harper and known as his “single best political organizer.” She is also former director of political operations and deputy national campaign manager for elections. She was adviser to the chief of staff while working for Harper’s office.
ANNE MCGRATH Identified as one of the 100 most influential people in government and politics in Ottawa and an activist in labour, student and women’s movements. She is the first female parliamentary secretary to the first female premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley.
KATIE TELFORD Chief of staff to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau–the first female to hold this position in Canada–she also led Trudeau’s Liberal leadership campaign. She had been deputy chief of staff to Stéphane Dion and worked as a senior consultant at a public government relations firm in Toronto.
Kate Middleton, is that you? We hardly recognise you in this majorly va-va-vooming cocktail dress.
The DoC has always done evening wear well—all the Packhams spring to mind—but this is a major departure for the normally elbow-sleeved, discreetly swathed in diaphanous fabric-loving Duchess. Guys, on the spectrum of royal protocol, this neckline is basically J-Lo's green Versace dress from 2000.
The red dress is by UK designer Preen, which she accessorised with that maple leaf pin borrowed from the Queen, which needs its own drinking game at this point. (Five bucks we see it at least two more times on this tour. Any takers?)
The first campaign photos from KENZO x H&M are out
By: Lauren Courtenay
Teasing their highly anticipated and daring collab, H&M has released the first official campaign photos just six weeks before the launch of Kenzo x H&M.
The images, shot by iconic photographer and graphic designer, Jean-Paul Goude, reveal a select few of the campaign’s gleaming brand ambassadors posed playfully in head-to-toe animal print. Iman, Chance the Rapper and rapper Suboi are three of seven internationally celebrated personalities set to rep the line.

Goude, known for his loud stylized contrasts and contorted poses, employed his signature sliced-up collage style to express the exuberant character of the collection.
The campaign also includes actresses Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny, as well as Japanese musician and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, and climate change activist slash hip-hop artist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez.

This is the first taste of the collection since July’s sneak peek into the lookbook. Several videos were also released with the photos giving us a taste of the line’s avant-garde aesthetic.
The full Kenzo x H&M campaign will debut on October 17 and the collection will be available in all 250 plus H&M stores worldwide, and online, starting November 3.
