An 80s-Styled Anja Rubik is Porter’s Fall 2014 Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Following in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Lady Gaga and Lara Stone, Anja Rubik is Porter‘s latest cover star. The magazine tapped the Polish beauty for its Fall 2014 cover, which was lensed by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Shot in the great outdoors, we see Anja posing among dewy woodlands while wearing a thick lilac coat teamed with a blazer, a gray sweater and a pair of green leather trousers. The cover look was styled by Melanie Ward.

Members of our forums have mixed opinions regarding Porter‘s fourth cover. “This is such a beautiful cover, really feel like Porter keeps knocking it out of the park with their covers. Love the way Anja was styled and the fact they shot the photograph outside, it works well together,” wrote YoninahAliza, who is clearly a fan.

“Ah, I like it. I really think this magazine has got off to a great start,” commented honeycombchild.

“I like it as well, love that it’s an outdoors shot, and that the hair is something different, styling works as well. Porter is taking my money instead of Love, I hope they keep it up,” agreed Miss Dalloway.

The thread also has members who are on the fence. “I’m not really getting anything from the cover, but I’m curious to see what’s inside,” shared an optimistic blueorchid.

“I don’t like the hair but I’m really excited about this magazine and I’m sure the editorial will be better,” wrote KateTheGreatest.

GIVENCHYlover made it clear he wasn’t interested: “I don’t know…I don’t like it.”

The Fall 2014 issue of Porter is available worldwide this Friday. Check out the thread and join the discussion here.

Dita Von Teese Launches Lingerie Capsule With Destination Maternity

If anyone knows how to do sexy lingerie, it’s Dita Von Teese, and now the burlesque star is trying to bring a little bit of that sexiness to busy new moms with the launch of a new maternity lingerie capsule, Von Follies by Dita Von Teese. In collaboration with Destination Maternity, Dita brings a limited-edition selection featuring attractive lingerie options for busy new moms. 

Chuck up the deuces to your frumpy cotton nursing bra. Von Follies is offering sexy, functional maternity skivvies — bras with lacy details and one underwire with sexy, bondage-inspired straps. Also on tap is postpartum shapewear, in the form of vintage-style, high-waisted shapers, rendered in sultry black and deep purple, all with sheer detailing.

Dita, who doesn’t have children herself, says she wished to create something “designed to capture the spirit of retro glamour, while inspiring confidence and meeting the practical requirements and everyday needs of a new mother.” Certainly these sexy undergarments could do the trick. Oh, and the best part about the line? Everything’s pretty reasonably priced. Prices range from $30 for shapewear to $49 for a nursing bra — so you can save money for things your little one needs, like diapers.

You can shop Von Follies now at the Destination Maternity site.

Designer Kaylene Milner Names a Dress After Fashion Blogger Carmen Hamilton

Designers and bloggers tend to get together for all different kinds of collaborations. Usually the bloggers model the wares of the label’s latest collection, and other times they play a hand in the design process. The latest uniting of forces sees Sydney-based designer Kaylene Milner and top-notch blogger Carmen Hamilton of The Chronicles of Her coming together for one truly stylish piece. A made-to-order cable knit dress named “The Carmen.”

In March this year, Carmen was on the hunt for the “perfect statement dress” and found it in the form of a bold, orange cable knit dress by Milner. It was originally a one-off, but once Carmen posted it to her blog, modelled on her incredibly-engineered body, the demand for the piece was crazy. 

After such a great response, Milner decided to invest in her own knitting machine to meet the demand of Carmen’s readers from all over the world. Now the dress is named after the popular blogger, with the designer tapping Carmen to strut her stuff in the design. “I’m so very honoured to have this incredible piece named after yours truly,” says Carmen.

First Look: Kate Moss Models Gucci’s ‘Jackie’ Handbag for New Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

It was well-documented back in June that Kate Moss was shooting an advertising campaign for Gucci and now our forums have an exclusive preview of the campaign. Lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the first images show the British model in paparazzi-style photos donning ready-to-wear, leather goods and eyewear from the Italian fashion house. It’s not yet confirmed as to what the campaign is for, but rumors speculate Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director, tapped Kate for the brand’s “Jackie” handbag ads, which are set to be released after the mainline Fall 2014 fashion spots.

Our forum members aren’t so enamored by the previews. “This is supposed to SELL the Jackie bag? You see a clear shot of it a total of…..ZERO times. And the third shot you only see the HANDLE!  Kate isn’t a Gucci Girl. She doesn’t even go here,” commented Kite.

“That 4th shot…seriously? It looks like a paparazzi photo. The art direction is terrible,” wrote orchidee.

Another member left underwhelmed was tigerrogue: “Every element of this campaign has seen better days, from the design of the Jackie, to the styling, to how Kate looks in each shot. It all seems so tired and mundane. When I saw the title of this thread, what I saw in my mind’s eye was not what I got.”

“What are they thinking? They can’t make a good campaign to save their life. This does not look luxurious nor expensive,” proclaimed gazebo.

Are you a fan of the campaign via the previews thus far? See inside the thread for more images and share your own opinion here.

Shop Til You Drop Magazine Goes Digital

Another glossy has fallen victim to the online takeover. Shop Til You Drop mag (which only recently went from a monthly to fortnightly frequency) will now only print four issues a year in its new bid to focus online. The magazine will still produce an online edition once every two weeks, with the print issue sticking around to support this new online direction.

Staff of our favourite all-things-shopping mag will face redundancy or redeployment as a result, with the new digital version of the magazine relying mainly on freelancers. Only a select few of Shop Til You Drop staff will cross over with the new development, but the changes will apparently not take place for another month.

The new digital focus comes after the magazine’s online counterpart relaunched earlier this year. Since German media giant Bauer Media bought out ACP Magazines in late 2012, many other changes have taken place, like fashion glossies Grazia and Madison closing, and ELLE Australia’s launch.

Irina Shayk ‘Looks Like a Plastic Doll’ on Vogue Brazil’s August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Irina Shayk is slowly but steadily accumulating a number of Vogue covers. This month marks the Russian beauty’s fourth, as she scores the August 2014 cover of Brazilian Vogue. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura (who also shot Irina for Vogue Spain’s November 2013 cover), the 28-year-old Hercules star is captured reclining on a wooden deck chair with bronzed skin wearing a gold top and contrasting shorts for the shoot, which took place in the Hamptons.

Members of our forums can hardly recognize Irina. “Awful… too much shopping and I don’t like the styling or the pose,” wrote DanceFashionista.

“Oh dear… she doesn’t look herself… they elongated her face in Photoshop too much…” agreed MyFavorite.

Sharing their sentiments was narcyza who added: “Is it Irina? She looks like [a] monster.”

“I can honestly not recognize her, the Photoshop on her face is simply horrendous. She is a beautiful girl to begin with and she certainly does not need any Photoshop whatsoever,” proclaimed [Piece Of Me].

MoniqValentino also questioned the amount of post-production and wrote, “Horrible Photoshop…she looks like [a] plastic doll here…”

So, I  think we can assume our feisty forum members don’t agree with the amount of evident airbrushing. Feel free to join the discussion and check out a preview of Irina’s cover story inside the thread here.
