Gisele Bündchen Speaks Out Against Animal Trafficking

Gisele Bündchen’s love of nature is no secret — especially to those who follow her on Instagram. The top-billing model regularly finds time for oceanside sunset salutations, family nature hikes, jogs through the fall foliage and baths with horses. If there’s a picturesque landscape to admire, you can bet Gisele has held up a hand heart to it. Now, everyone’s favorite Earth Mother is using her time away from the runway to preserve that which she values most (aside from family, of course). (more…)

Amy Schumer Shuts Down Instagram Body Shamers and It’s Perfect

Internet trolls present us with an existential dilemma: Do we ignore them, saying without saying that their remarks aren’t worth acknowledging, or do we take them on, knowing full well they feed off of combative (anonymous, cowardly) exchanges?

Amy Schumer has never been one to shy away from a worthwhile argument. Time and again she’s used her rapier wit to slash away at body negativity — she’s taken on sizeism in retail, criticized the use of the admittedly sexist term “plus-size,” and spoken of the challenges of being a curvy woman in Hollywood. Even when the comedian, actress and author is vacationing in Hawaii with her hunky carpenter boyfriend Ben Hanisch, she’s still got time to take down those virtual critics who seem to exist solely to spew hate and then evaporate into the ether.

Yesterday morning, the actress posted a grainy paparazzi photo of herself wading through the Hawaiian surf in a navy blue one-piece. In her caption, she preemptively addressed her haters: “I meant to write ‘good morning trolls!’ I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you’ve never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone. This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!” (more…)

La Perla’s New Creative Director Successfully Switches Up the Campaign for Fall 2016 (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have praised La Perla’s winning formula for five consecutive seasons, with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott capturing a variety of top models against the same dark grey studio background. For Fall 2016, the luxury Italian lingerie brand’s new creative director Pedro Lourenço has opted to switch up the concept. Still enlisting Mert and Marcus for their photographic expertise, the dull studio look is chucked in favor of a brighter look, with models Valery Kaufman, Sasha Luss and Liu Wen taking over for the likes of Natasha Poly and Noami Campbell.

The campaign left the majority of our forum members with mixed feelings, however. “Finally something new. Too bad Valery is quite boring. The second shot (above right) is stunning though and very visually appealing,” commented anlabe32 at once.

“A change!! Thank God. I’m obsessed with the second shot. Perfectly captured. Valery probably has an ounce of Natasha or Naomi’s sex appeal, but she did OK here. Not amazing, just OK,” added Benn98. (more…)

That’s right Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham tried to launch a hip hop career back in 2003, but unfortunately even with the help of Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash, the project was scrapped.

Going on to re-brand herself as a fashion mogul and muse in the years after, the internet has today seen fit to unearth the ill-fated endeavour with some tracks finally seeing the light of day.

Condé Nast Adds Clothing Rental to Its Roster of Employee Perks

Condé Nast just one-upped Nike for the title of “Employer of the Month” — kind of. Beginning on Tuesday, employment at the media powerhouse includes a (partially subsidized) unlimited subscription to Rent the Runway. Instead of paying $139 per month, staffers at Vogue, Vanity Fair and all those other glossies can fork over a mere $90 to “select three items, keep each piece as long as [they] want, and exchange anytime.” The discounted rate applies for the next six months.

The idea is to offset the cost of shopping for work attire when there’s a high likelihood you’ll run into Anna Wintour or this month’s cover girl on your way to the office. (We assume the measure is also at least partly related to the fact that Condé’s parent company, Advance Publications Inc., invested a considerable sum of money in the style startup back in 2014.)

Selena Gomez Gets Outshined by Nicolas Ghesquière on Vogue Brazil’s June Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Brazil continues to put itself on the map with popular cover subjects like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid and Naomi Campbell. For its latest offering, the title has secured yet another high-profile cover star. Already on the cover of Marie Claire, Selena Gomez poses alongside designer Nicolas Ghesquière for June 2016, both making for an unexpected choice. Shot by Bruce Weber, Selena wears Louis Vuitton (natch) on two different covers, both of which are currently being deliberated on by our forum members.

“It’s just weird to see Selena wearing clothes by Ghesquière. Such an odd mix. It doesn’t get any more prefabricated than this ‘muse/creator’ relationship..” ranted Creative the second the covers came to light.

“It’s so weird to me to see these two together. Selena looks cute and all but Nicolas steals the show. The man is goooooorgeous!” added pivoslyakova. (more…)
