Sia & 12-Year-Old Maddie Ziegler Boss It Up on the 2015 Grammys Red Carpet

Oh, Sia. We definitely expected some kind of shield over the Australian musician’s face for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in LA tonight (ET), but her choice of cover-up took the usual Sia peculiarity to a whole new level.

The “Chandelier” singer rocked up to the red carpet with her mini-me Maddie Ziegler in matching white-blonde oversized wigs, complete with bangs long enough to hide Sia’s eyes and nose. We’re glad she looked to the 12-year-old as a plus-one, because we don’t think “Elastic Heart” star Shia LaBeouf would’ve ever lived this one down.

Other than the excessive hair, the girls actually looked quite sharp in their similar monochromatic suits, showing off their matching hand tatts (or texta scribbles, in Maddie’s case), flawless makeup and snazzy footwear. Sia’s pretty proud of her efforts, tweeting, “Bossing it up on the red carpet with my sister in arms @maddieziegler,” alongside a shot of her and her sidekick at the event.

POP Magazine Gives Gemma Ward Her Best Comeback Cover Yet (Forum Buzz)

Maybe not quite the spectacular comeback we had in mind once we witnessed the Aussie stunner strut her stuff down Prada’s Spring 2015 catwalk in Milan, but Gemma Ward makes a surprising appearance fronting the new issue of POP magazine. This isn’t the first major cover since Gemma’s comeback, she also fronted the December 2014 issue of her native Vogue Australia. This time around we see the current face of Prada in a different light, photographed by Harley Weir for the Spring/Summer 2015 issue.

POP Magazine Spring 2015 Gemma Ward


This will no doubt generate a lot of forum buzz since it’s everyone’s favorite model on the cover. “Wow, I sometimes forget this mag still exists, but I might check this out. I’m always here for Gemma in Prada. The cover is surely eye-catching, but it’s a bit creepy (which works, I guess),” commented mistress_f the moment it surfaced.

“Gemma + Harley Weir? Hell yes!” Marc10 raved, setting the tone of comments to come.

Forum member Razzer was clearly motivated and simply declared, “Oh my. I’m sold!”

“This is the first image of Gemma that I’ve liked, since the comeback started,” agreed tigerrouge.

“Marvelous, love the cover. Yes Gemma yes!” TeeVanity enthused.

“Love it! Now this is how you do a comeback magazine cover,” declared khyrk.

“YES! An incredible image of Gemma! Looking every inch the blue chip editorial queen. I will be purchasing this issue. LOVE magazine should take note on how to do any eye-catching cover without the shock value of using a reality TV star,” added zoom, getting his digs in.

Here’s to hoping there’s more to be seen of Gemma once the issue becomes available. Take a peek inside the thread here

New Petition Calls for Magazines to Cut Down on the Use of Photoshop

Photoshop has become a regular feature in most of the images we see in the media. It’s at a point where if you don’t use Photoshop for a spread, campaign or any other mass produced image, it becomes news. Missing limbs, poreless skin and suspiciously trim features are a regular occurrence, but RAW Beauty Talks is trying to change all that.

RAW is an organization striving to bring a little more reality to our media beauty standards and help women embrace their unique, natural beauty. Its mission is to promote “transparency in media” when it comes to the images we see of women in our magazines, on our televisions and in advertising.

RAW has launched a petition calling for magazines like VogueELLE, Cosmopolitan and Glamour to reduce the amount of post-production Photoshop tweaking used on images. The petition cites statistics illustrating the negative effect these images have on young girls and women and also proposes a social media strategy to put pressure on magazines to curb the use of Photoshop. “We want to see cover girls and editorial in your magazines that don’t alter the already perfect bodies of the women you feature and don’t erase their fine lines or the unique attributes that make them truly beautiful,” the petition reads. “Remove a pimple or that crazy stray hair if you must, but other than that let their natural beauty shine!”

So far, over 1,700 people have signed to show their support for RAW’s initiative. It is certainly a noble cause — we can only hope the industry sits up and listens.

Doutzen Kroes Celebrates Her 30th Birthday with 3 Collectible Vogue Covers (Forum Buzz)

Who says September issues are the most desirable of the year? Vogue Netherlands has gone all-out to impress with its March issue. To commemorate Doutzen Kroes’ 30th birthday, the magazine dedicated the big spring fashion issue to the Dutch model, handing her a set of three fabulous celebratory covers (now if that ain’t a birthday present, we don’t know what is). Photographed by Paul Bellaart, Jan Welters and Nico Bustos, we are treated to three different sides of the radiant beauty who, on the cover below, was shot alongside her two small children. Aww!

Vogue Netherlands March 2015 Doutzen Kroes


It didn’t take our forum members long to voice which cover out of the three is their favorite. Check them out for yourself here.

“I think it looks like a cheaper version of something Vogue Paris would do and I don´t like kids on fashion covers at all and at least show the baby’s face. Nico’s cover is the worst imo. I like Welters’ cover the best though it doesn’t blow my mind. I´m looking forward to the editorial,” shared kokobombon, who didn’t show much enthusiasm toward any of the covers.

“Bellaart’s cover had the most potential amongst the three. Look how ethereal Doutzen looks in that shot. Even the hair amazes me and that stare. What bothers me the most in this cover is that the second child (lower right) seems Photoshopped to fit the cover. Unless that’s a tall child, there’s no way in hell that a child that age, while seemingly crouching, is at the same height as Doutzen’s waist,” MON criticized.

Forum members continued to announce their favorite. “I love the Chanel one the best, it’s the most ‘fashiony,’ it gives me Sixties realness,” appreciated gazebo.

TeeVanity agreed: “The Paul Bellaart and Jan Welters covers are beautiful, Doutzen is everything.”

“What a stunning trio of covers! My favorite is the Jan Welters one; kind of reminds me of that Castaway story Doutzen did for U.K. Vogue a while back,” added Nepenthes.

Gigi Hadid and Binx Walton Are Teen Vogue’s March Cover Girls! (Forum Buzz)

Models are few and far between on magazine covers these days, but Teen Vogue gives us two of the most in-demand faces of the moment for March, and we aren’t complaining. The magazine tapped Gigi Hadid and Binx Walton to grace the “Major Spring Fashion” issue, enlisting Daniel Jackson to capture the beauties. Gigi and Binx are each handed individual covers and pose together on a third, complementing each other’s allure.

Teen Vogue March 2015 Gigi & Binx


With models’ names in the thread title, it didn’t take our forum members long to start discussing. “Nice to see models in Teen Vogue,” poison84 appreciated.

“Can’t remember the last time a model was covering Teen Vogue? Can you? Maybe Karlie? Always happy to see models on covers,” gazebo replied in agreement.

Also full of gratitude at seeing models on the cover was kokobombon: “I like that they used models on their March issue.”

“These covers are adorable, I am sure collectors will pick up all 3 as they should,” suggested TeeVanity.

Benn98 was also full of praise. “Binx looks amazing on both covers. I think this is a great way to build up teen fan base (and garner more followers). I’m sure the Teen Vogue reader would already be familiar with Gigi, so she makes sense here,” he noted.

Check out all three covers and be sure to share your opinion with us here.
