Forum Members Weigh in on Cara Delevingne’s Latest Beauty Ad for YSL (Forum Buzz)

Cara Delevingne is no stranger to fronting beauty campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent. The British model was first tapped by the iconic French brand back in 2013 and the relationship is still going strong. This time around, we see the 22-year-old beauty looking as though she’s just stepped in from a night on the town, but still sporting a face full of flawless makeup (obviously, after using YSL’s innovative products). Cara’s new campaign image for YSL’s Spring 2015 collection surfaced on our forums earlier and forum members are deliberating over the brand’s efforts this season.

Ad Campaign YSL Beauty Spring 2015 Cara Delevingne


“That highlight on her forehead is the only thing I notice, then I slowly bring my eyes down to the horrible makeup,” shared an underwhelmed TREVOFASHIONISTO. This doesn’t look like it’s going to go down well.

Nymphaea agreed and commented, “A bit too much makeup on her face.”

Also not showing much enthusiasm toward the campaign was ParisFashionMuse, who thinks the advert is “a boring image.”

“This reminds me of the Friends episode where Ross has to do Rachel’s makeup. Who approved this? Yikes,” disapproved a horrified mistress_f.

GivenchyHomme had a strong opinion and wasn’t afraid to share it with us: “She looks like a child playing dress up. Whoever did this makeup should be fired.” Ouch!

Do you agree with these strong comments? Are you a fan of Cara’s YSL adverts? Join the discussion inside the thread here.

Condé Nast Settles Intern Suit for 5.8 Million

W Magazine Oct 14 Noami Campbell


If you were a Condé Nast Intern in June of 2007 or later, you might soon be getting a check in the mail. The publishing giant has been battling a lawsuit filed by over 7,500 former interns who claim they were underpaid for the long hours they spent working at Conde Nast. Reuters reports that the publisher will now be sending payments of anywhere between $750 and $1,900 to the scorned members of their old low-cost labor force, young men and women who stayed in the office at all hours organizing samples or picking up snacks for editors. 

Condé Nast nixed their internship program last year after getting slapped with the suit. CEO Chuck Townsend said in an email to staffers, “Settling the lawsuit is the right business decision for Condé Nast. It allows us to focus our time and resources on developing meaningful, new opportunities to support future up-and-coming talent.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Blowdry Chain in London

You won’t find a single leather-bound journal or cashmere sweater at Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest business endeavor. The lifestyle guru is determined to dip her perfectly-manicured toes into as many different waters as possible — as long as those waters promise to be lucrative. She’s already telling us how to eat right and dress on her Goop website, so it was only a matter of time before Gwyneth started helping us decide what to do with our hair.

Gwyneth and celebrity hairstylist David Babaii have joined forces as ambassadors for the Blo Blow Dry Bar chain. The Goopster just helped launch a new location for the brand at Market Place in London’s Covent Garden district. The actress took to Instagram to announce the newly-opened location, and herald the arrival of the first Blo in London. There are already over 45 Blo bars in North America and around the world.

Babaii and Gwyneth signed on with Blo in May, in hopes that their celebrity status and expertise would help elevate the brand. The trio seems to be rolling along quite nicely. Gwyneth recently helped launch a beauty bar from sister brand Body By Blo in Naples. Between these openings and her Goop pop-up, Gwyneth’s certainly a busy gal.

Flashback: Vogue Paris November 2006 with Paris Hilton by Mario Testino

As Kim Kardashian breaks the Internet on the cover of Paper‘s Winter 2014 issue, we take a look back at Paris Hilton’s controversial cover of Vogue Paris for this week’s Fashion Flashback.

Carine Roitfeld tapped Paris for the November 2006 cover, getting Mario Testino to photograph the blond socialite for the flattering cover shoot. Paris flaunted her sun-kissed skin and toned physique wearing a gray flannel skirt by Azzedine Alaïa teamed with a white cotton tank from Ralph Lauren. Gone were the hair extensions in favor of a cleverly-styled shorter hairdo and long fringe, making Paris look better than ever.

Paris may not have been everyone’s dream cover subject at the time, but the rest of the issue doesn’t disappoint. David Sims captured models Coco Rocha, Natasha Poly, Bette Franke, Tanya Dziahileva and a range of other girls for a fabulous beauty story, doing each of the girls justice by adding great shots to their ever-growing portfolios. Norwegian model Iselin Steiro went skiing for the magazine, photographed by Mikael Jansson, with Karl Templer on styling duties. Diana Dondoe and Missy Rayder both baked under the scorching summer sun, showcasing the season’s hottest new accessory — the oversized handbag. Later in the issue, Roitfeld styled Lara Stone for their first shoot together (there would be many more to come) with the model donning knitwear and denim pieces as Terry Richardson captured it all on location in Paris.

It’s times like this when we truly miss Roitfeld’s presence at French Vogue. Familiarize yourself with the content of Vogue Paris’ November 2006 issue here.

Why Stella McCartney Doesn’t Work with PVC

Stella McCartney‘s namesake label is known for its sustainable, environmentally-friendly approach to producing luxury fashion goods. It is one of the only high fashion houses that doesn’t use fur or leather in any of its products, but traditional skins and pelts aren’t the only things on McCartney’s no-no list. The designer chatted with WWD‘s Bridget Foley about staying true to her aesthetic and morals, while sitting at the head of her label. Through the interview, you really get a good feel of how passionate McCartney really is, and that being sustainable is about much more than shying away from fur.

“I also don’t do PVC,” McCartney revealed. “I work with women’s groups in Kenya and I work with associations in Patagonia. It’s not just about my lifestyle choices. It’s more than that now. It’s very much about the impact — that water going into an animal for a handbag. That is not a good use of our resources. You don’t have to be a genius to work that out. It has a big impact, the chemicals used to turn the leathers. How that affects the local communities with PVC, how cancerous it is for the people working with it. It goes into the water. It’s a bigger story. Some people are thinking about it, but, the thing about our industry, you’re not answering to that many people. There aren’t many laws in place. The large corporations, the very few that run the industry, aren’t answerable to anyone.”

Obviously, McCartney isn’t just a bleeding heart animal rights sympathizer — not choosing to work with certain materials is more than just about being kind to our furry friends. It’s also about being kind to other human beings, the very human beings whose lives impact our wardrobes.

Burberry’s Holiday Campaign: Who’s That Girl?

We’ve all seen Burberry’s holiday campaign by now, and not just to gush over its latest offerings, but also to see little Romeo Beckham looking all grown up. As we were watching Victoria’s child prodigy continue to make his mark on the fashion world, we couldn’t help but also notice Burberry’s newest female addition. Hannah Dodd is the latest lucky model to join the Burberry family, and if you’re wondering where you’ve seen that face before, it’s because she’s previously worked with some of our high street favourites like Monsoon and Primark

In a recent interview with LOOK magazine, Hannah divulged her insecurities about working with Christopher Bailey. “I was very nervous, it was such a large scale production it was quite overwhelming at first,” she explained. Though she may be treading in the plaid-clad footsteps of Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss, Hannah says, “That sentence still sounds crazy to me!” We wonder how long it’ll take for the novelty to wear off?
