Kate Middleton Crowned UK Vogue’s 100th Anniversary Cover Star! (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have been waiting for British Vogue‘s momentous 100th anniversary edition to drop for what feels like an eternity, with names like Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen being thrown around as possible cover stars. In a surprising move, Kate Middleton takes to the front cover for the very first time, following in the footsteps of Princess Diana who covered the magazine on numerous occasions. In her first official shoot for the magazine, the Duchess looks poised and relaxed wearing comfortable attire in the English countryside, flashing a warm and inviting smile before the lens of Josh Olins.

The cover was sure to generate a huge amount of buzz and that’s just what it did. “Honestly this is such a refreshing choice and such a big deal for Vogue U.K. that I can’t complain about anything. They did the 100th anniversary right, I really can’t imagine a better person for it,” applauded dodencebt.

“I’m so thrilled about this, I’m speechless!! Yahoo!!” exclaimed an elated Handbag Queen. (more…)

One-Minute Workouts May Be All You Need, Says Science

 

Beyoncé said don’t hurt yourself – gonna second that #StretchItOut #HBFIT #tgif

If you prefer lying on a beach to sweating through Kayla Itsines’ bikini workout — or can’t imagine having the time to do either — this one’s for you. A recent 12-week study by researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario suggests that in 60 seconds’ time you can reap the same cardiovascular and insulin sensitivity benefits as you would after 45 minutes of moderate exertion — the key is to grind like hell for that one minute. Call it the go-hard-then-go-home method, patent pending.

Experts have touted the benefits of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for nearly half a century. HIIT consists of a short but extremely draining burst of exercise — essentially to the point of muscle failure — followed by a light exercise or rest period, followed by another grueling if brief phase, and so on and so forth until you’re either the Rock or vomiting on AstroTurf.

Various studies have expounded the benefits of interval training over extended workouts, with the suggested time of intervals growing ever shorter. In a world where, essentially, no one feels they have enough hours to devote to the gym, HIIT methods have taken off. While the one-minute interval seems almost too good to be true, the scientists at McMaster University, veterans to the study of interval training, were sure to cover all (well, most) of their variable bases.

Naomi Campbell Stars on Three ‘Messy’ and ‘Dated’ Covers for Vogue Brazil (Form Buzz)

She’s the current face of Balmain and has just released a highly-coveted book to commemorate her longevity in the fashion industry and now Naomi Campbell stars on a set of three unique covers for Vogue Brazil’s May 2016 issue. On cover one (pictured below), the fierce and fabulous Brit beauty strikes a dynamic pose complete with some overbearing styling, while on the remaining two black and white covers, looks far more demure and subtle (for Naomi Campbell, anyway). But are they all winners?

Our forum members couldn’t wait to pick the covers apart. “Urban Cleopatra? I can deal with that. A welcoming reprieve from the past few dull covers for this magazine. It’s a great concept, but why did they retouch her face so aggressively?” asked Benn98 at once.

“The Photoshop on the shot in Prada (below right)! I thought it was Oprah,” exclaimed a horrified russianelf. (more…)

The University of Washington’s Cheerleaders Clearly Missed the Point of ‘Bring It On’

University of Washington Cheerleading Team's Infographic

Source: University of Washington

Apparently, the University of Washington cheer captains somehow missed the underlying moral clause in Bring It On. Based on a “tryout look” infographic the team posted Monday night on its Facebook as a guide to prospective Huskies, grunge babe Missy Pantone would certainly never have made the cut.

The offending poster, an illustration of 29 superficial hair, makeup and body requirements for squad hopefuls, was removed from the group’s page early Tuesday morning after it (aptly) attracted a flurry of negative backlash. Why the team didn’t anticipate specifications like “body do’s: natural tan, spray tan” and “makeup don’ts: nude lips” being called into question is beyond us. (more…)

Helena Bonham Carter Does ‘Glamorous Cat Lady’ on UK Harper’s Bazaar’s Gorgeous June Cover (Forum Buzz)

We were half expecting to see Emilia Clarke on the cover of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar this month but were pleasantly surprised to see Helena Bonham Carter gracing the June 2016 issue instead. Making for an extremely refreshing cover subject among the sea of regular faces at the newsstand, the eccentric Brit actress wears a Burberry coat layered over a Stella McCartney dress as she braves the chilly British weather. Taking to the great outdoors for the shoot captured by photographer Tom Craig, Helena looks terrific on the cover sent out to subscribers (pictured below).

“Wow! I can only hope the newsstand cover is this captivating,” said dodencebt. (more…)
