‘Cool Girl’ Alicia Vikander Is a ‘Letdown’ on UK Vogue’s August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Yet another month has passed where Kim Kardashian isn’t on the cover of British Vogue (we must be losing our touch at guessing cover stars). Instead, the magazine has selected someone who has never graced the cover before. With a successful American Vogue cover appearance under her belt, Alicia Vikander takes to the title’s UK cover for August 2016. The Swedish actress was shot by Alasdair McLellan in the rare sunshine at the English shore, wearing Louis Vuitton while showing off an enviable glowing complexion.

Surprisingly, the cover seemed to leave the majority underwhelmed. “This is a lovely surprise considering the speculations that it’s probably Kim [Kardashian] on the cover. I like it, very fresh and summery, even though Alicia doesn’t convey much emotion in print,” wrote dodencebt the second the cover dropped.

“It reminds me of Christy Turlington. I was very surprised when I saw her cover story. I never thought that she could be very great in print,” confessed kewkaw. (more…)

Rebel Wilson Says Her Size Is an Advantage

On June 28, Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones took to Twitter to bemoan Hollywood’s and fashion’s inherent sizeism. Four days later, in an interview with The Telegraph, comedy darling Rebel Wilson said she “saw [her] size as being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

The Los Angeles-based actress is currently in London, where she’s making her West End debut in Guys and Dolls. It’s only in the past five years that Wilson’s career’s really taken off, thanks to her role as uncensored, hypersexualized a cappella aficionado Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect franchise (a follow-up to her minor but unforgettable role in Bridemaids).

The business-savvy blonde told The Telegraph she realized weight could be her “thing,” so to speak, when a curvy costar in a play Wilson herself had written had an easy time stealing the show: “And I was like: ‘Oh. That girl’s getting a lot of laughs, a lot easier than me. What is it?’ Because I don’t think there’s much difference in talent. And I remember distinctly thinking: ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter’. And then, I don’t know if it was mega-conscious, but I thought: ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe if I was a bit fatter…’ And then suddenly I was fatter, and doing comedy.” (more…)

The cover became an instant hit. “I adore this! The colors look so beautiful. They complement Priyanka’s beauty so well. This could easily pass as a U.S. Vogue cover with minimal texts. Great job InStyle! This will be the first ever issue of InStyle that I’m going to get once it hits the newsstand here in our country,” announced a more than impressed cottonmouth13.

“I love this! And finally a Gucci dress that hasn’t been overexposed,” dodencebt pointed out in amazement.  (more…)

Taking a page out of DIY enthusiast Alessandro Michele’s book, Karl Lagerfeld will soon offer his own range of one-of-a-kind buys. Starting July 7, the Chanel and Fendi frontman’s eponymous brand will sell customizable sneakers. While Lagerfeld’s latest project may seem out of character for the suede boot-wearing style baron, upscale sneakers have long been coveted investment pieces among the fashion set, so this endeavor — unlike, say, a drawing kit costing $2,822 — seems a natural progression.
