Amy Schumer Said the Met Gala Felt Like a Punishment (Even Though She Got to Meet Beyoncé)

Amy Schumer and the fashion industry just don’t mix. She couldn’t stand it when one of its major glossies labeled her plus-size, she abhors how retailers treat curvy shoppers, her Freaky Friday swap with Anna Wintour proved near-fatal (walking in stilettos near sharp-cornered furniture is an accident just waiting to happen) and she has no time for the pomp and circumstance of the Met Gala.

Much like Gwyneth Paltrow and Tina Fey before her, who’ve called the exclusive red carpet event “so un-fun” and “a jerk parade,” respectively, Schumer dissed and dismissed the Gala in a recent interview with Howard Stern. “I guess I should be grateful I was invited or something, but yeah, it felt like a punishment. It’s not me and I don’t like it,” she willingly admitted. “We’re dressed up like a bunch of fuckin’ assholes.” (We wonder how Alexander Wang, who dressed Amy for the Gala, took that observation.)

“It’s people doing an impression of having a conversation. I don’t like the farce,” she elaborated, adding, “I left not the second I could; I left earlier than I should’ve been allowed.” (more…)

Irina Shayk Goes Blonde for Vogue Russia’s Gorgeous September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums sure do have a love/hate relationship with Irina Shayk. The Russian bombshell has had a breakout year so far, landing Givenchy advertising campaigns and fronting covers for the likes of Vogue Germany and Vogue Japan. Irina now takes to the cover of her native Vogue Russia as the title bestows upon her the honor of gracing the September edition. Captured by photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Irina does what she does best and vamps it up on the cover as a sultry blonde.

The cover left our forum members pleasantly surprised. “This is actually a gorgeous cover! The windblown effect works. Her expression, albeit sleepy, works. And I love how she seems to be embracing herself – the vulnerability factor I always love,” MON praised immediately.

“Wow, it’s actually really impressive,” confessed Katya in amazement. (more…)

While we plebians may have a hard time getting our hands on a pair of Yeezy Boosts, members of the Kardashian clan have been spotted in the coveted trainers on innumerable occasions — even Kendall, who’s usually more of a lace-up stilettos and pointed-toe boots kinda gal.

So, color us unsurprised that unofficial Kardashian Kreative Director and dream brother-in-law Kanye West seems to have rubbed off on the Jenner design duo. Yesterday, Kylie posted a sneak peak of the upcoming Kendall + Kylie footwear line and we immediately saw the family resemblance. (more…)

Is Lily-Rose Depp Worthy of Starring in Chanel’s New No.5 L’Eau Fragrance Campaign? (Forum Buzz)

As announced back in May, Lily-Rose Depp is the face of Chanel’s new No.5 L’Eau fragrance and the wait for the official advertising campaign is finally over. Already with an eyewear advertising campaign for the iconic French fashion house under her belt and not forgetting her mother Vanessa Paradis‘ rich relationship with both the brand and Karl Lagerfeld, Lily-Rose inking a deal as the face of the scent shouldn’t come as a total shock. But considering the dramatics and intrigue of previous Chanel fragrance adverts, the campaign for No.5 L’Eau is fairly simple in comparison with the 17-year-old peering out from an oversized bottle of the scent.

To say our forum members were underwhelmed, would be an understatement. “It looks very simple. I would’ve hoped they’d have done something with Jean-Paul Goude,” sighed Lola701.

“Too easy and simple,” added a far from overwhelmed Nymphaea. (more…)

Forbes’ List of the World’s Highest-Paid Actresses Spotlights Hollywood’s Inequalities

Jennifer Lawrence topped Forbes' list of 2016's highest paid actresses.

Hard work, talent and a few choice words with Sony executives have most certainly paid off — today, Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid actresses hit the Internet and Jennifer Lawrence has retained her well-earned title. The actress has raked in $46 million (pre-tax) thus far in 2016, a paltry figure compared to last year’s $52 million (again, before she gave the IRS and state of California their due), but still nothing to sniff at. At 26-years-old, the Hunger Games star is the youngest woman (and only actress in her twenties) to make the top ten. We believe a waterfront celebration with bestie Amy Schumer is in order —and remember, pics or it didn’t happen.

In second place is Melissa McCarthy, who pulled in $33 million thanks largely to the femme-fronted Ghostbusters remake. (No word on how much Netflix offered the star for the Gilmore Girls reboot, which we’re anticipating more than those Black Friday sales, frankly.) Scarlett Johansson accepted her bronze medal for making $25 million, along with the minor consolation prize of being named the highest-grossing actress in all of history earlier this year. (more…)

The leading authority on the global fashion industry, The Business of Fashion (BoF), has released its much-anticipated second annual ranking of best fashion schools. The ranking is an initiative on BoF’s part to provide prospective students with an objective analysis and the tools to make an informed decision in pursuing a higher education in fashion. With over 10,000 students and alumni surveyed from 54 participating fashion schools in 17 countries, it is the world’s most comprehensive evaluation of the ever-expanding world of fashion academia. If you’re looking to learn the fashion ropes through a formal curriculum at a noteworthy institution, then BoF’s education report is a must-read.

So, how did America fare in the global market? With 14 schools making the cut, America had more top fashion schools than any other country. For undergraduate program offerings, New York’s Parsons School of Design came in internationally at number 5 and slightly lower at number 8 for its graduate program offerings. New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology followed closely at number 6 for undergraduate programs and also fell a bit lower at number 10 for graduate programs.

7 Unique Fashion Careers You May Not Know About ]

While BoF noted that American schools offer unique opportunities to study overseas at satellite campuses and have actively responded to the demand for more business, technology and marketing courses in their programs, it stressed a concern over an ongoing surplus of design graduates in an increasingly saturated market.
