Adriana Lima Wears Miu Miu on Vogue Brazil’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Adriana Lima has been tapped for the September 2014 cover of Vogue Brazil. The Brazilian beauty has been a regular fixture on the fashion bible this year. Steven Meisel shot Adriana for Vogue Italia’s June cover and Koray Birand photographed the bombshell for Vogue Turkey’s May issue. Ellen von Unwerth now captures Adriana drenched in a plastic coat by Miu Miu, while gazing down the German photographer’s lens.

Members of our forums have mixed reactions toward the cover. “I kind of love it! She doesn’t look real, it’s like a computer game character in an abstract painting or something. The styling is just totally weird and contributes to that odd effect. Definitely different and strange, but I think it’s fun. And wow, would never have guessed this was shot by Ellen! First collaboration between Adriana and her since the late 90s, is that correct?” commented Psylocke.

“I love the colors too and the hair/makeup. You can’t really miss this on the newsstand. I wouldn’t think it was shot by Ellen either if I didn’t already know. The clothes are questionable, but they do add to the shot,” declared vivaglam.

Andrea27 was torn: “Surely, it will be eye-catching on [the] newsstand, but to me [it] looks too plastic, which doesn’t have to be bad, but the attempt isn’t as good at it could be. On the other hand, she’s so pretty here!”

“She just doesn’t pull this look off, it doesn’t work and she’s been heavily retouched as well. Why do you take a beautiful supermodel like Adriana and do this???!” ranted an unsatisfied Bertrando3.

Another member not feeling the cover was gazebo, who posted, “I hate everything, so cheap, so not Vogue!”

Rebecca Minkoff to Unveil Wearable Tech Range During NYFW

Rebecca Minkoff wearable tech bracelet

This studded notification bracelet pairs via bluetooth with your mobile device, $120

Wearable tech seems to be the latest frontier fashion labels are getting into a frenzy over. Tory Burch just launched Fitbit Flex, a fitness tracker you can wear on your wrist or as a pendant. Diane von Furstenberg released a collection in collaboration with Google Glass. Now, Rebecca Minkoff is getting in on the fun and is due to debut a new five-piece line of wearable tech items during New York Fashion Week.

Minkoff teamed with Case-Mate on the project, focusing on camouflaging the capabilities of her accessories with stylish accents. In addition to the obligatory iPhone case, the range will offer an external charger and wristlets. Also on tap is a pyramid-clasp studded leather bracelet that transforms into a lightning cord allowing the user to charge or connect their mobile devices. Minkoff’s collection also boasts a chain-link bracelet that will notify the wearer when they get a call or a text. 

“As a woman, I understand the stigma that goes along with having my phone out at a dinner or meeting, but the fact is that I still need to be tapped in to a few people no matter what. I designed the notification bracelet with the working professional woman in mind,” says Rebecca Minkoff in a press release today. (more…)

But the brand has told Ragtrader that plenty of other brands are releasing popular copycat designs, which use cheap fabrics and poor quality construction. (more…)

Kim Kardashian Rocks Baby Pink Toni Maticevski

Kim Kardashian just posted her OOTD to Instagram, featuring none other than Melbourne-based designer Toni Maticevski. Kim rocked a soft pink look, with a Balmain gold-buttoned blazer over a white Alaïa  bodysuit showing off her ample cleavage.

What brought the entire outfit together, though, was the statement baby pink skirt by Maticevski. The front-wrap detail, plus the structured thigh spilt and midi length, had the getup looking stylish and feminine. Kim topped it all off with strappy black Hermes heels. (more…)

Robyn Lawley Tries to Give Us a Sneak Peek of Her New Swimwear Collection

Getting us in the mood for warmer days ahead, Robyn Lawley has given us all a little sneak peek of what’s to come from her self-titled swimwear collection, Robyn Lawley Swimwear. The “plus-size” model has posted several pictures to her Instagram, showcasing the upcoming designs straight from the shoot in Vermont.

We can expect double-strap balconette bras with matching contrast bottoms as well as plunging one-pieces with strategic line work around the hip area. We want to say they’ll be black and white, but going off the poor-quality, filtered images, it looks like the white could actually be a neon yellow. Perhaps it’s just the Amaro filter at work — we’re not too sure. (more…)
