By now we’re well aware that Léa Seydoux is affiliated with Louis Vuitton. She’s always decked out in the iconic French fashion house’s clothing and starred in the brand’s Spirit of Travel advertising campaign for Spring 2016. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the French actress was LV’s choice to star as the face of its newly unveiled perfume collection. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Léa smolders in the hypnotic images, as the team traveled to South Africa and shot on location at Lone Creek Falls, which makes for a captivating campaign backdrop.
However, the campaign left our forum members with mixed feelings. “The picture is really beautiful and Léa looks so good but if I saw it alone, I would’ve never of guessed it was for Louis Vuitton. They need more coherence between their multiple lines. Anyway, I’m happy that it’s Léa and not Selena Gomez (such a weird ambassador for LV),” pivoslyakova pointed out.
“Love Lea and seeing her in ads and she looks lovely, but I think I would like the image more if her lips and the flower were closer color-wise to the bottle color. That fuchsia really jars for me,” said rox_yr_sox. (more…)
Technicolor tresses are all the rage, but as much as we value self-expression, so too do we value hair that complements our natural skin tone and doesn’t have the fine people of HR breathing down our necks. Full-on unicorn, watermelon, pastel and rose gold locks, while beautiful, just aren’t feasible for everyone. But now, thanks to our friends over at Cosmopolitan, we’ve caught on to a new trend that allows us, hair-wise, to have our polychromatic cake and eat it, too.
Victoria Beckham is just one of those personalities who our forums don’t mind seeing splashed across the cover of Vogue — and she’s certainly got a few cover appearances under her belt by now. Making a return to the cover of British Voguefor the fourth time, Victoria looks undeniably fantastic in a statement Hugo Boss wool coat as she poses with her arms above her head — a VB signature. Photographed by Lachlan Bailey and with styling from Kate Phelan, Victoria also sports her highly-anticipated makeup collection, a collaboration with Estée Lauder. But our forum members can’t help but think they’ve seen this pose too many times before.
“The same face.. every time,” discredited niknak the moment the cover surfaced.
The cover also seemed very familiar to VogueDisciple93: “Is this a reprint? I am sure I have seen this image before.” (more…)
British fashion designer and businesswoman Vivienne Westwood has made her rap debut on a song about climate change, austerity and the mainstream media.
Teaming up with UK MC Mic Righteous, Westwood has contributed a spoken word piece called ‘Intellectuals Unite Climate Revolution’ to Mic Righteous’ song ‘Be There‘, in which she gives her assessment on the current state of migration, perpetual war and the world’s changing climate. The song also features a chorus from the singer Tone.
All royalties from Westwood’s ‘Intellectuals Unite Climate Revolution’ piece will go to the charity Refugee Council, and ‘Be There’ will feature on Mic Righteous’ album Dreamland, which is set for release on October 26.
Gone one month and back the next: that’s the unfortunate scenario we’ve come to recognize with Vogue Italia and Steven Meisel. Meisel brought his A-game with the title’s July cover story but then the magazine followed up with a disappointing August cover lensed by Steven Klein. Rejoice that this is the month of Meisel because we need a respite from September issue mediocrity. Pleasing us to no end, Meisel created four multi-covers, featuring Frederikke Sofie, Kiki Willems, Bella Hadid and Lulu respectively. Photographed in the studio for a moody, dark and industrial-inspired fashion spread, the cover girls are joined by a whole host of other faces — and it is most definitely a must-see.
Members of our forums were quick to descend on the thread. “Looks promising!! I love it when Meisel goes dark and industrial. Cannot say I’m keen on the collage effect, it’s simply not suitable for a cover,” Benn98 commented immediately.
Adidas used Kate Moss’ likeness to bring us back to the 90s, an era when everyone wore Gazelles, pay phones were still a thing and the only device breaking up the monotony of treadmill exercise was the Discman. Charlotte Tilbury, on the other hand, has teamed up with artist and director Antoine Wagner to bring Kate and ourselves way, way into the future, to a time when trips to “hedonistic” dance parties in outer space are quotidian and perfume bottles moonlight as flying saucers, but one thing remains the same: the Scent of a Dream muse is still the galaxy’s coolest model.
To promote the launch of her first fragrance, now available on Nordstrom.com and at select Nordstrom locations, Tilbury and Wagner created a dazzling 360-degree virtual reality film. Starting today, shoppers at those same brick-and-mortar Nordstroms can enter Tilbury’s perfumed, celestial world and dance alongside Kate Moss and her campaign co-star Nathan Mitchell with the help of Samsung Gear’s Oculus headsets.
