Carolyn Murphy Wears Prada in the Pool for Town & Country’s Terry Richardson-Shot Cover (Forum Buzz)

Town & Country is not usually a magazine that takes our fancy but with a cover star like Carolyn Murphy, we’re more than happy to take a look. The models of the 90s are most definitely having a moment on newsstands worldwide lately with Amber Valletta taking to the cover of Condé Nast Traveler and Cindy Crawford currently fronting Vogue Paris. Our forums now welcome Carolyn with open arms on Town & Country‘s May 2016 offering as she soaks a heavily embellished outfit by Prada in the pool while gazing down the lens of controversial photographer Terry Richardson.

“All that text, yikes. And always overexposed lighting with Terry, not for me, it’s passé! Why is Terry still used, give him a wide berth please,” instantly complained Nymphaea.

In agreement over the harsh lighting was Benn98, echoing, “Yikes, the lighting is blindingly awful! Guess it’s official, Terry is forgiven. I’m much more interested to read Carolyn’s interview…” (more…)

Whoopi Goldberg just solved your menstrual cramp problems…with marijuana. The iconic entertainer teamed up with partner Maya Elisabeth to create a range of medical cannabis products targeting women.

The four-product line includes a balm, sipping chocolate, tincture and bath soak, aimed at relieving pain from menstrual cramps. Goldberg has been vocal about the myriad benefits of marijuana use, including its medicinal properties. Now she’s graciously sharing that knowledge with women in need and capitalizing on the cannabis market, which drove $2.7 billion in sales last year in California alone. The View cohost told USA Today: “I want to go nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women.” And Amen. (more…)

We know what you’re thinking: another day, another Kendall and Kylie clothing launch. We’re no strangers to their PacSun T-shirts or Topshop collections that seem to debut every other month, but their latest offering may warrant a second look. Kendall + Kylie partnered with Neiman Marcus on a collection of nine pieces, #OnlyatNM. And it’s surprisingly pretty awesome.

The design aesthetic is decidedly elegant with structured dresses, sharp jumpsuits and expertly-draped silk skirts. The fabrics are just as upscale: think Italian leather, Chinese hammered silks and Turkish jacquard. Kendall stressed the sophistication of the new line in a press release, saying, “[It] is sophisticated, clean and beautifully tailored. We incorporated a lot of sophisticated and versatile pieces that were simple yet chic.” (more…)

Kylie Jenner Sports a Bigger-Than-Ever Pout on Paper Magazine’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

The Kardashian-Jenners certainly aren’t strangers to the cover of Paper magazine, with Kim herself breaking the Internet back in 2014 thanks to that now infamous Jean-Paul Goude shot. Fast-forward to April 2016 and it’s now Kylie‘s turn to steal the show. Paper isn’t shy about mocking pop culture, having produced some questionable covers with the likes of Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus in the past. This time around, the mag parodies Kylie Jenner’s ever-changing looks with an obviously enhanced cover shot where the reality TV star-turned-beauty mogul sports much larger eyes and a bigger-than-ever pout.

Our forum members certainly didn’t hold back. “Why even use Kylie when you can make this 100% by computer. Ugly,” declared Nymphaea the second the cover image appeared. 

“How could anyone approve this? This is horrible! This is not youthful at all, Kylie looks like she’s 35 and like she’s going to melt… The tackiness is the layout, did they really make an Instagram post as a cover?” asked a horrified Aizanara. (more…)

Behati Prinsloo’s Arm Goes Missing on Vogue Thailand’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Thailand is slowly getting more recognition with each passing issue. The publication kicked off 2016 with a Chrissy Teigen cover, managing to impress the majority of our opinionated forum members. But with its latest offering, the magazine takes one giant step backward with a very suspect and awkward cover for April 2016. The magazine captures mother-to-be Behati Prinsloo playfully posing at the beach before the lens of Russell James. But something — like her right arm — seems to be missing.

Vogue28 picked up on the awkward pose immediately, saying, “And where is Behati’s right arm?” While marsnoop2 simply declared, “Next!”

“Everything is too much and this colorful font. NO,” added a horrified narcyza. (more…)
