Serena Williams Proves ‘Women Are Strong As Hell’ on Glamour’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

After an awkward cover last month featuring Emilia Clarke, Glamour‘s latest features someone who just oozes confidence and charm. Following a solo Vogue cover appearance back in April of last year, Serena Williams is a knockout in a white Wolford swimsuit and bomber jacket worn around her arms on the cover of the magazine’s July 2016 edition. Photographed by Norman Jean Roy, the tennis ace also poses for a series of photos to accompany the cover, with Serena showing off her incredible physique.

“It reminds me of her last Vogue cover. It also feels a bit… Cosmopolitan?” asked an uncertain MON the second the cover surfaced.

“I like it, though it’s heavily Photoshopped isn’t it?” questioned kokobombon. (more…)

New York City Takes a Bold Stand on Transgender Bathroom Rights

The New York City Commission on Human Rights has launched the first city-government-led initiative promoting transgender bathroom rights, the Be You campaign.

Imagine Alicia Keys’ and Jay Z’s ode to the metropolis is playing as you read the following. The New York City Commission on Human Rights has launched the first city government-led initiative promoting transgender bathroom rights, the Be You campaign. Subway cars, phone booths and bus shelters now feature ads endorsing residents’ right to use the restroom that is “consistent with who you are.”

Last month, the Obama administration ordered all public schools to allow transgender students to use the restroom of their preference, regardless of what sex they were assigned at birth. The decision came in the wake of a suit against the school district of Palatine, Illinois by a transgender high school athlete who believed she should be able to use the girls’ locker room — that which aligned with her gender identity. The federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights agreed. “Student A” (she understandably kept her identity a secret in court documents) is truly the transgender Ruby Bridges of our time.

Raquel Zimmermann, Stella Tennant, Anja Rubik and Anna Cleveland Cause a Riot in Moschino’s Fall Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that Jeremy Scott likes to BRING IT with his fashion campaigns for Moschino. Last season, photographer Steven Meisel managed to make Scott’s kitschy collection look extremely expensive and the season before, we got Katy Perry. Moschino’s campaign continues to be told by the legendary Meisel and Scott welcomes models Raquel Zimmermann, Stella Tennant, Anja Rubik and Anna Cleveland on set. Styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the girls cause a bit of a riot on location for a series of dynamic and entertaining images.

Our forum members were all for it! “What a fantastic campaign full of energy and life!” praised marsnoop2 the moment the campaign dropped.

“Not my cup of tea but it sort of works. Raquel is a total queen. She’s FLAWLESS. She dignifies everything she’s part of. I can’t get enough of her… What a wonderful woman,” Creative approved immediately after. (more…)

Kate Moss and Daughter Lila Grace Pose Together on Vogue Italia’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

Mother-daughter duos have certainly become a huge trend on magazine covers this year! Vogue Paris with Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber is still fresh in our minds and now Vogue Italia jumps on the bandwagon with its latest offering. No signs of Steven Meisel this month but in comes photographer Mario Sorrenti with a black and white, picture-perfect family portrait shot, featuring none other than modeling royalty Kate Moss and her 13-year-old mini-me daughter Lila Grace Moss Hack. Kate sure is a favorite of Italian Vogue lately, having starred on three covers within several months.



Members of our forums weren’t so smitten with this month’s offering, however. “This cover does nothing for me. It’s just yet another portrait shot. Looks more like Kate and Lila for American Vogue to me, Lila looks very young here,” complained Benn98 at once.

“Jesus what has become of Italian Vogue? Now even when they have Meisel back (previous issue), it’s all so insipid! It’s a beautiful portrait of Kate and her daughter, but it’s really not cover worthy!” screamed a less than impressed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Beyoncé’s Emotional CFDA Speech Hit on Diversity and Destiny’s Child

 

A video posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

By the time Beyoncé stepped up to the podium to give her CFDA Fashion Icon Award acceptance speech, we were already at the point of tears. Some threatened to burst from a sartorial spot in our hearts — the glimmering pinstripes on Bey’s Givenchy suit were a stroke of genius on the part of designer Riccardo Tisci, her (Prince-inspired?) ruffled black shirt complementing the set perfectly, while her wide-brimmed hat brought us back to the first time we watched Formation, awestruck.

Then there was the ever-quotable Diane von Furstenberg’s on point introduction. She gave voice to our thoughts when she called the Lemonade singer “everything all women want to be,” adding, “The image of a woman in charge has never looked more glamorous or desirable.” (more…)
