Vogue Says We’re Living in the ‘Era of the Big Booty’ — Is Late to the Party

NEWFLASH: We’re living in the era of big butts. For the first time in human history, people are finally embracing the beauty of a round, high, bubble butt. What a time to be alive!

Yesterday, Vogue published an article proclaiming this as “Officially the Era of the Big Booty.” 2014 has certainly been a great year for butts – Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” is a hit. Jen Selter‘s “Belfies” gave a new name to the ubiquitous Instagram ass shot and now, Jennifer Lopez, whom we can credit for introducing the beauty of a round derriere to America, has just released “Booty” in collaboration with another endowed artist, Iggy Azalea.

And thank goodness! To think I felt fat all those times at my Upper East Side high school because my bubble butt made my uniform kilt too short in the back! All those times in college when I couldn’t find jeans to fit me: forgotten! It’s nice to see Vogue affirming that now my booty is cool. That really heals all the pain I experienced in my younger days. It would have been so nice if there were images and music in pop culture confirming that my figure was beautiful back then (besides “Bootylicious,” which was mentioned in the original article).

Wait a minute….

Katy Perry Goes Pretty in Pink for Harper’s Bazaar October Cover (Forum Buzz)

After Carine Roitfeld‘s spectacular shoot for the September issue, Katy Perry is now U.S. Harper’s Bazaar‘s latest cover star. The “Teenage Dream” singer poses on the magazine’s October 2014 cover photographed by Camilla Akrans. The shot is certainly a departure from Katy’s usual look as we see the 29-year-old looking ultra glamorous wearing a show-stopping dress by Schiaparelli Couture, styled by Julia von Boehm.

See inside the thread here for both the newsstand (pictured above) and subscribers covers. It seems members of our forums have mixed feelings toward the covers. “The newsstand cover is so pink and tacky. I like the subscriber’s cover though!” wrote Nepenthes.

“The newsstand cover is like an overdose of Cherry Coke, while the subscribers one is beautiful,” agreed tigerrouge.

“The subscriber’s cover is a beautiful image. I’ve learnt with Harper’s US to just pretend entirely that their newsstand covers don’t exist. It’s for the best,” declared honeycombchild.

“Wow that subscribers cover is beautiful. How the dress falls and how she posed makes it look so regal! The newsstand cover could have been better if it were subjected to their usual white background. That would have allowed the beautiful red dress to stand out in the cover. Although I must agree that she looks so average here and her eyes look so sleepy,” MON said.

A.D.C. doesn’t seem to rate Harper’s Bazaar and posted, “Bazaar makes everyone look average.”

“I second that!” replied Benn98, who went on to say: “I’m just glad Camilla shot this. It’s not the most captivating shot, but it’s much, much better than her last cover for them. They must just stop with this color background, there’s nothing ‘fall’ about this. The subscriber’s cover is very nice, and hopefully the ed will be too! I guess their model high has come to an end. Pity, really looked forward to their issues a few months ago.”

Better than the September cover with Lady Gaga? Share your own opinion inside the thread here.

Christian Siriano Says He Wasn’t Throwing Shade at Lena Dunham’s Emmy Dress

It seems everyone who saw Lena Dunham‘s Emmy’s dress — the pink tiered Giambattista Valli ombre confection — has plenty to say. While most of the reaction was not-so-great, Lena seemed pretty happy in her frock, which she tweeted looked “like cake” and felt ‘like sweatpants.” 

Just after her Emmys appearance, Christian Siriano Instagrammed a photo of a similar-looking dress, one that he designed, captioning the image, “Remembering this ombré tulle gown from our Spring 2010 collection this morning. One of my favorites from the archives!”

Immediately, people speculated on whether Siriano was throwing some shade to Valli — it was quite coincidental that he would bring up this look in the wake of everyone making a fuss over Lena. But Siriano cleared everything up for us last night when we chatted with him on the Fashion Rocks red carpet.

“People love to talk,” he told us. “I just opened my fragrance store — it’s a pop-up store in New York, and I picked four of my favorite dresses, my feeling of what were iconic dresses. That one was in the store, so that was [what] the picture was for,” he explained. “Unfortunately, people jump to their own feeling, which is fine.”

Siriano assured us that he’s got no bad feeling toward Valli or Lena. “Giambattista is amazing, and we love Lena, so I would never.”

Rose Byrne Stuns in 3.1 Phillip Lim at TIFF 2014

Rose Byrne rocked a matchy-matchy 3.1 Phillip Lim getup for the premiere of Adult Beginners at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 8. The Aussie actress has easily made out best-dressed cut for the entire festival, by absolutely nailing the adorable ensemble.

The silk sleeveless blouse, featuring black mesh and green floral embroidery looked absolutely divine when teamed with the guipure skirt thanks to a luxe mix of textures. Rose continued to impress with classic black pointed-toe heels and Tiffany & Co jewels, but in our opinion it was her hair and makeup which smashed this look right out of the park.

The side-parted wavy bob and plum-hued lips gave the getup a certain dark-romance vibe, adding the right amount of edge without stripping the look of its femininity.
