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.

“Love the styling and the second and third shots!” approved justaguy. (more…)

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.

Beyoncé Continues Her Worldwide Domination of ELLE With the UK Edition (Forum Buzz)

As you may have already noticed by now, Beyoncé signed a global deal to be the cover girl for every single edition of ELLE worldwide, with the American version unveiling its cover featuring the singer-turned-athleisure designer earlier this week. The other editions are beginning to follow suit and U.K. ELLE‘s take on Beyoncé is the latest cover to fall under our forums’ scrutiny. Using the exact same shoot photographed by Paola Kudacki, British ELLE opted for a close-up image of Beyoncé who, of course, wears an outfit by Ivy Park once again.

Our forum members couldn’t wait to see how British ELLE designed its cover. “I like the U.S. cover better. The head tilt hurts my neck, and the logo is wrong. They should’ve placed it behind her instead,” criticized MON straight away.

In the same frame of mind was justaguy: “Ugh, not diggin’ this cover at all. Too many different fonts and awkward pose. I agree, the masthead should have been behind her head. Looks odd when they drop letters to accommodate an image.” (more…)

Jennifer Lawrence’s First Cover of Harper’s Bazaar Falls Flat (Forum Buzz)

As you may be quite well aware, our forums are notorious for ratting out magazines that continuously serve up the same old cover stars. We’d consider Jennifer Lawrence to be a cover subject who regularly greets us at the newsstand, but in defense of the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the actress has surprisingly never been on its front cover before. That all changes this month as the Christian Dior ambassador looks right at home on the title’s recently released May 2016 edition. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Alastair McKimm, both the subscriber’s cover (below) and the accompanying cover shoot fall completely flat, leaving us extremely underwhelmed.


Forum members were quick to voice their sheer dismay. Handbag Queen wasn’t even willing to accept another Jennifer cover. “It’s as if there were only five celebrities in this world. Same celebrities month after month. Zzzzzzz!” she commented.

“Whoa, this is simply shocking! You have Sorrenti, and this is what we get? A blurred, out of zoom, too closely cropped cover image? Not to mention she can photograph 100 times better than this, sigh! I have seen red carpet shots of her that would have made for a better cover!” Miss Dalloway expressed straight away. (more…)
