‘Everything Is Too Much’ with Jessica Chastain’s UK Harper’s Bazaar Cover (Forum Buzz)

We just love it when a magazine enlists someone unexpected as its cover subject, but it appears Harper’s Bazaar got it all wrong with its latest installment. The U.K. edition of the Hearst-owned title tapped Jessica Chastain for the November cover. Photographed by David Slijper, the 37-year-old Golden Globe winning actress posed wearing a show-stopping piece from Armani Privé.

Impressed? Our forum members sure had a lot to say. “Looks more appropriate for December than November. Glad that the color is more intense on the cover, because the editorial previews looks very dull,” stated Benn98, who then went on to say, “What a surprising choice, of course I don’t mind her at all.”

“It is too festive…but anyway the cover is very charming and glamorous,” replied GlamorousBoy.

KateTheGreatest shared her view: “I find her so incredibly boring but I like the pic of her in the green dress (although her eyes look weird).”

Another forum member with mixed views was Kanna, who commented, “Both on the cover and in the ed the dresses are fabulous, and I love the setting also, but it’s Jessica’s face that bothers me. She looks manly and stiff in these.”

“This has a lot of potential because it’s beautiful at a glance, but I hate how stiff she looks in these photos or the Photoshop that’s done to her to make her look that way,” posted lawaldorf.

“I don’t really like her makeup, it is so pale. And the photos could be more colorful, but she is gorgeous!” noted Anna147.

 “Ouch, everything is too much! She looks like [a] Christmas tree,” declared a dissatisfied narcyza.

Here’s What Amal Alamuddin Wore for Her Wedding to George Clooney

Amal Alamuddin pretty much killed it in the wardrobe department this weekend at her four-day wedding celebration in Italy. One almost forgot that she was taking George Clooney, one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, off the market. But of all the outfits we saw her wear this weekend (the lacy Giambattista Valli Couture dress, that chic ivory Stella McCartney pantsuit), we’ve been waiting to see the most important look she rocked. We are, of course, talking about her Oscar de la Renta designed wedding gown, which we finally have a look at thanks to People.

The bride wore an off-the-shoulder Chantilly lace gown festooned with beads and pearls, and a matching cathedral veil. For accessories, she stuck with pearls and diamond earrings, keeping the jewelry relatively simple. For the post-wedding festivities, she slipped into another de la Renta piece, this one from his Fall 2014 offering. 

DUH: Amal looked amazing. It’s easy to forget that she wasn’t the famous thespian getting married this weekend, since she spent much of the four days proving that she is a style star in the making. But in spite of the fact that she can wear the hell out of a pantsuit, something tells us that as a lawyer, she might have more pressing issues to attend to post-nuptials than her next outfit. Still, we’ll be waiting to see what she turns out!

For a while there, we forgot Miranda Kerr was even a model. She’s been too busy causing punch-ups over in Ibiza and making headlines as James Packer‘s possible squeeze to remind us. The only thing we’ve got to go off is her recent Vogue Japan cover, which was deemed “horrible” by theFashionSpot forums.

But now she’s gone and walked for Sonia Rykiel at Paris Fashion Week, joining the all-star model lineup including Kendall Jenner, Cody Simpson‘s ex Gigi Hadid and Georgia May Jagger. We’re actually surprised everyday models (without famous parents) made the cut for this high-profile show. (more…)

Cate Blanchett was on the 2014 Zurich Film Festival Circuit over the weekend, turning to high-end designers for two appearances on Saturday, September 27. The 45-year-old maintained her feminine sophistication, as always, in ladylike getups by Stella McCartney and Christian Dior Couture.

For the IWC Photo Exhibition opening, the actress stepped out in a textural blue dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort 2015 collection. There was definitely a vintage vibe with large buttons and side pockets, but the piece stayed fresh and on-trend with a triangular midriff cut-out. She teamed the dress with dark-mahogany pointed-toe pumps, which tapped back into the retro feel.

NRL WAGs Shine in Couture at the 2014 Dally M Awards

NRL WAGs dolled themselves up in support of their main men last night, stepping out for the Dally M Awards at Sydney’s Star City. The annual event had the girls shining on the red carpet in dazzling couture or otherwise, perfectly complementing (ahem, outshining) the standard black-and-white suits of their partners.

Scroll through below to see our favourite getups from NRL’s big night.

Jodi Anasta easily took out best dressed, and yummiest mummy, in this shimmering lace J’Aton Couture gown. The sheer fabric, plunging neckline and thigh split amped up sex appeal without sacrificing the elegance of this look. Her softly balayaged locks and bronzed skin polished off the bohemian-luxe vibe.

Christian Louboutin on Veal Carpaccio, Nail Polish Fights and More!

Think you know the King of Sole inside and out? Au contraire. In a recent interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Christian Louboutin talks about sneaking into the theater, why veal carpaccio inspires him and where the heck those red soles came from. Without further ado!

On why he wanted to be a designer: “When I started to be quite hooked by the music hall, it was exactly the same period where I started to draw shoes. I wanted to design shoes for showgirls.”

On interning: “I remember one of my jobs [as an intern] was to bring food. All the time, they were asking me for veal carpaccio. And one day I said, ‘You all eat so much carpaccio. Why is that?’ They said, ‘You fool. We’re not eating it!’ Basically, they would put carpaccio veal in the bottom of the shoe, inside the shoe. So it was protecting, and it was a type of moisturizer. That’s one thing that I have incorporated in my designs, technically. Well, I’m not putting in veal carpaccio.” 

On his red soles: “In 1992, I had sketched a lot of drawings and all the drawings were full with colors. They were sort of pop colors. When the first shoe, which was a Mary Jane with a high heel, arrived it was exactly my sketch. But something was better in the drawing. The girl who had tried the shoe on…was actually painting her nails. So I grabbed her nail polish, then we had a bit of a fight. So, I took the nail polish and I colored the sole. And then suddenly, almost like a revelation. So, it popped exactly like my drawing.”
