Kylie Jenner Takes to Snapchat to Co-sign Caitlyn Jenner’s New MAC Lipstick

Kylie Jenner may have ticked off the black community with her latest Marie Claire interview in which she claims she “started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs,” eliciting cries of cultural appropriation (rightly so), but the cosmetics queen knows how to use her Kardashian klout to promote awareness —and squash controversy. Exhibit A: The reality star took to Twitter to seemingly address the uproar, writing, “When publications switch up your words for hype…Damn.” We assume the implication is that Ky was referring to the spread of the wig trend within her own clan. Exhibit B: On Sunday, the product promotion aficionado used her much-followed Snapchat to plug Caitlyn Jenner’s new MAC lipstick, Finally Free.

The video, though not anywhere near as suggestive and stylized as Kylie’s own BBHMM-inspired would-be lip gloss ad, sends a much more effective message. It features a cameo by Caitlyn (whom Kylie refers to as “my dad”), who has ostensibly stopped by her youngest daughter’s pad to gift her with the exclusive shade. (more…)

Romee Strijd Finally Lands Her First Solo Vogue Netherlands Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’re surprised that model Romee Strijd hasn’t already landed a solo cover of Vogue Netherlands, but we guess it’s better late than never as the title finally hands the Dutch beauty the May 2016 cover. Following in the footsteps of Doutzen Kroes last month, the current face of Carolina Herrera looks breathtaking in the Quentin de Briey-shot image. In the understated and effortless pic, Romee photographs beautifully wearing a pink sheer and ruffled Gucci blouse, working the no-makeup makeup look and a fabulously unkempt hairstyle.

But the cover left the majority of our forum members disappointed. “It’s pretty, I’m really in the mood for this, what a gorgeous cover,” raved Miss Dalloway straight away, setting us off on a high note.

“It’s a gorgeous shot, however the orange ruins it for me! Ugh,” disapproved MON as negative comments started to flood in. (more…)

Watch a Goofy Cate Blanchett in 1980s Footage From ‘Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday’

Cate Blanchett hasn’t always been the demure and perfectly poised star we know her as today. Thanks to late 80s footage of Cate singing on Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday segment Red Faces emerging online, we can now see another side of pre fame Cate.

In a performance by her acoustic duo ‘Kate and Simon’, with the addition of kooky sax player Tal, Blanchett throws herself into a theatrical rendition of a Weird Love Song. Heavily in character, she awkwardly twitches and shuffles on stage, singing obscure lyrics at the top of her lungs.

Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Zendaya on Marie Claire’s Annual ‘Fresh Faces’ Issue Is Everything We Need for Spring (Forum Buzz)

Marie Claire is not the typical magazine our forums favor for celebrity coverage, given its tendency to over-style and inability to show subjects in the best light. Yet this month, Marie Claire most definitely has our attention. For its annual ‘Fresh Faces’ issue, famous faces Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Zendaya, Ellie Goulding and Gugu Mbatha-Raw each pose on one of five different covers photographed by Tesh. Each of the women works the camera like there’s no tomorrow, leaving us pleasantly surprised.

“Oh my goodness I actually smiled when I saw that Kylie cover! It’s everything I need for spring. I like the mood. I love the carefree feel to it. I love how it feels so natural. Her best cover to date. I might actually buy this. She’s a beautiful woman. Gugu’s cover is also beautiful. Love the attitude,” raved MON the moment the covers dropped.

“Yeah, Kylie’s cover is soo good! I like it,” chimed in fluxxx. (more…)

Forum Members Either Love or Hate Kristen Stewart’s Latest Chanel Campaign (Forum Buzz)

By now, we’re all well aware of the fact that Kristen Stewart is affiliated with Chanel. After all, the actress has taken to the front row of many Chanel shows (even walked in one), starred in a handful of campaigns for the iconic French fashion house and most recently was unveiled as the face of Chanel’s new mascara. Now, in a move that should surprise no one, Kristen is unveiled as the face of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Pre-Fall 2016 collection and stars in the cinematic new campaign. Of course shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself, Kristen looks beyond comfortable in the series of black-and-white images wearing the Rome-inspired collection, consisting of heavy, black fabrics and a mountain of lace.

Gucci Defends Ad With ‘Unhealthily Thin’ Model

The fashion industry is cracking down on the use of excessively thin models on the runway and in advertising. Recently, Gucci drew the ire of UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for a campaign image featuring an “unhealthily thin” model. “We considered that the model leaning against the wall appeared to be unhealthily thin in the image, and therefore concluded that the ad was irresponsible,” ASA’s website read.

The ad appeared on the Times of London website in December of last year and soon after, the ASA received a complaint about the model’s size. Gucci responded to the ruling in a statement: “We take our responsibilities as an advertiser very seriously in the way models are selected for, and presented in, our advertising campaigns. We have noted, but are not in agreement with, the assessment of the U.K. Advertising Standards Authority, an independent regulator, in relation to one model featured in one image from our cruise 2016 campaign. The campaign itself expired at the end of December 2015.”

According to WWD, the Italian fashion house argued that thinness is subjective and the model in question was not “depicted in a way that could be interpreted as unhealthily thin.” It’s hard to debate that the model looks frail and waif-like in this photo. Though no bones are visible, the model appear dangerously thin and her “somber facial expression and dark makeup, particularly around her eyes,” only makes matters worse.

The ASA’s admonishment of Gucci is the latest in a series of attempts made by authorities to curb the use of overly thin models. France put legislation in place that bans models with a Body Mass Index (BMI) less than 18 and British fashion brand Rose and Willard requires models to eat in their presence. Hopefully, fashion houses will start casting more responsibly in seasons to come.
