Margot Robbie Delights on Vanity Fair’s ‘Natural’ August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Margot Robbie is having her moment and we are loving each and every second, from starring in Calvin Klein’s captivating new fragrance campaign to walking the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie The Legend of Tarzan. Now, as reported on our forums last week, the Aussie stunner stars on Vanity Fair’s August 2016 cover. Photographed on the island of St. Barth’s and captured by Patrick Demarchelier, Margot’s natural beauty shines bright while wearing a white bikini — earning the seal of approval from our forum members.

“She’s on fire! I love this, even though she’s in a bikini I don’t find this tacky. Can’t wait to see the ed,” said kokobombon straight away, about to set the tone for comments to come.

“Nice to see something simple, no contortionist pin-up poses or heavy styling,” admitted a pleasantly surprised tigerrouge shortly after. (more…)

How a Body Shaming Incident at a Wedding Sparked the #KruegerKindness Feminist Movement

Everyone who’s attended a summer wedding has confronted the tricky task of balancing dress code constraints with comfort. Ideally, once we make it to the seats surrounding the altar, the communal outpouring of joy for the happy couple eclipses all concern for one another’s outfit choices. Unfortunately, for nutrition and fitness coach Liz Krueger, this was not the case.

Faced with the prospect of scorching temperatures, Krueger chose to wear a body-con mini-dress with a sweetheart neckline to her friend’s June wedding. Many of her fellow attendees took issue with that choice, turning what should have been a celebration of love into an occasion for bullying. In a now viral Instagram post, Krueger described certain guests’ attempts to body shame her: “If only I knew that choosing this dress for a wedding on a 90 degree day meant so many women would be outrightly rude to me, and even come up behind me slap my ass as I’m standing alone,” she wrote. “As quote, ‘It was a dare from her friends, because I was a target.’ And then proceed to spill a full beer spilt down my arm. Just one of maaaaany acts of kindness of the night!” (more…)

Grace Coddington, Kate Moss, Bella Hadid and More Star in Calvin Klein’s New Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The majority of castings for the new fall campaigns have been less than spectacular but leave it to Calvin Klein to knock it out the park. After the likes of Kendall Jenner and Justin Bieber last season, Calvin Klein ups the ante and secures none other than Grace Coddington for fall, alongside Bella Hadid, Kate Moss, Anna Ewers, Young Thug, James Rodriguez and many more. Shot by Tyrone Lebon, each “model” goes solo in a variety of settings for their campaign shots.

It’s safe to say the campaign caught the attention of our forum members immediately. “Grace is the only one which interests me here! Lebon actually did something fresh with her two shots. The rest all looks like your typical ID fare. Fed up with Kate Moss and her bed head, and fed up with tattooed rappers fronting fashion brands,” voiced Benn98 straight away.

“Grace, Kate, Bella, Anna! Fabulous casting!” praised russianelf. (more…)

Kylie Jenner’s Cosmetics Company Isn’t Impressing the Better Business Bureau

 

Literally Gloss

Yesterday, the Cut reported that the Better Business Bureau assigned an F to Lip Kit magnate Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics brand. The sub-par grade, it said, came as the result of 133 separate complaints regarding, for the most part, delivery issues and general problems with the product and services rendered. Today, the Better Business Bureau’s website shows that the business, in fact, has no rating — though it does now have 134 complaints — as it has been in existence less than one year and therefore does not have a “sufficient track record for BBB to rate it.” Dodged a bullet there, Kyles.

Since Kylie Cosmetics’ November launch, its Lip Kits have come under fire for shipping delays, changes in formula and shoddy packaging, among other criticisms. When questioned by the Better Business Bureau regarding the M.I.A. and incomplete Lip Kit deliveries, the brand blamed its obvious packaging. To better conceal what’s inside those coveted Lip Kit parcels, the company is now “taking steps to change their packaging so that it is less recognizable.” As for the allegations of copycat formulas, Kylie Cosmetics’ parent company, Seed Beauty, has “informed BBB that Kylie Cosmetics uses an exclusive formula that is not shared by any other brand.” (more…)

The massive ’90s hit Wannabe by the Spice Girls is all over the internet 20 years after its initial release, but this time it’s delivering an even more powerful message to women worldwide.

Charity Project Everyone is an independent United Nations supported coalition that strives to bring about positive change on a global level, including ending violence against women and fighting for equal rights. Through this remake and super high energy new video, the charity wants to let our world leaders know just what modern day women really, really want.

The video was launched along with Project Everyone’s The Global Goals website. In the video messages are spelt out on buses, in classrooms, and held up on on signs, stating what women really, really want, like to “end violence against girls” and “quality education for all girls”.

The video invites women from all over the globe to tweet an image of themselves holding a sign that states what they want to happen to improve the lives of women, using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant. These statements will be presented at the United Nations General Assembly in September this year.

Victoria Beckham AKA Posh Spice has shared the video, strongly supporting the song’s new found purpose.

Mario Testino and Vogue Australia’s Attempt to Profile Royalty Is Lost With This ‘Cheesy’ Cover (Forum Buzz)

Magazines have been keen to feature royalty on their covers this year (just a shame it’s not modeling royalty). British Vogue celebrated 100 years with the Duchess of Cambridge, Vogue Thailand tapped HRH Princess Sirivannavari and now Vogue Australia welcomes back Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark alongside husband Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark. Photographer Mario Testino photographed the momentous occasion, opting to take the couple outside for the cover shoot — which unfortunately left us underwhelmed.

Our forum members weren’t afraid to let loose. “I sort of appreciate what they were going for but it doesn’t quite work out for me, it’s very busy with the dappling and the background, he’s also in a very awkward pose and appears to be squinting at the sun a little too much,” pointed out honeycombchild.

“And Vogue Australia was doing so well! I don’t know nor care about this couple but speaking about the image: it’s quite bad IMO, especially his pose and expression. Is it me or is there something wrong with the proportions?” asked a disappointed kokobombon. (more…)
