Julia “Juju” Ivanyuk is One to Watch
19-year-old Ukrainian model Julia “Juju” Ivanyuk started off strong at New York Fashion Week by both opening and closing the show at BCBG Max Azria. Her fans in the forums at tFS have been excitedly cheering her on. “Juju fever has begun!” exclaimed LiranYana.
The great start at BCBG was followed by appearances at Richard Chai Love, Jason Wu, Doo.Ri (where she also opened the show), Jill Stuart, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Altuzarra, Derek Lam, Preen and Max Azria. Melly5525 predicted “a stellar week for her,” and if the shows she’s done thus far are any indication, she just may be right. The forums will be watching Juju's every move…
Taylor Momsen Sluts it Up for the Premiere of Justin Bieber’s Movie
We all know Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen tries a little too hard to emit a tough and edgy rock-chick vibe, but once again as she is wont to do, she has taken it too far. At the premiere of Justin Bieber’s film, Never Say Never, Momsen showed up in what can only be described as hooker-wear. The getup consisted of a corset-top, latex studded underwear, garters, black thigh-high stockings and black platform stripper heels.
“This time there's no excuse, she definitely forgot the pants,” laughed Psylocke. “I wonder what her hourly rate is,” asked a deadpan Squizree. Some sound advice from enkeli05: “I understand the need to show off those great legs but sometimes it's just too much!” This time, it was definitely too much.
Taylor Tomasi Hill’s Enviable Celine Clutch
Taylor Tomasi Hill, Style and Accessories Director of Marie Claire, has been photographed around New York this fashion week carrying a blue Celine clutch that tFS forum members are coveting. “The blue clutch sets off her hair perfectly,” complimented Not Plain Jane. “I want one!” she added. “Wow!! I want that clutch as well!” educo agreed. Party_Vixen emphasized that the clutch added “a great pop of color.” Well played Taylor Tomasi Hill.
What Will Carine Do Next? tFS Speculates…
Now that Carine Roitfeld has revealed some details in an interview about her departure from Vogue Paris and hinted that she has a new project on the horizon (to be revealed next month), speculation in the forums has become rampant about the direction of her career. “I don't think it will be a magazine,” said BetteT. “More likely some sort of styling gig… because she was a stylist before she became [Editor-in-Chief] of Vogue Paris. She said in this interview that she was ‘returning to her roots.’” There was speculation that Roitfeld’s next move might involve Balenciaga after Roitfeld was spotted having drinks with Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiere a few weeks back. Before had a new theory: “So… she wore Givenchy Haute Couture to the [AmFar] Gala and has mentioned Riccardo [Tisci] a few times in her post-VP interviews. I know that's little to run on, but could her new gig have something to do with Givenchy?” Whatever the new project is, the fashion world and tFS are anxiously waiting to hear about it.
