Ruth Bell Fails to Impress as the Face of Jason Wu’s ‘Bizarre’ Spring 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Jason Wu made it pretty clear that he likes to be in his namesake advertising campaigns while appreciating the company of models like Christy Turlington Burns, Stephanie Seymour and Karlie Kloss. Our forums made no attempt to hide the fact that we loathed the cliché idea, but for Spring 2016, the designer has heard our cries and serves up something totally different and rather unique. Out are the glamorous models and swanky locations in favor of edgy fashion model Ruth Bell, who was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin before a clean, white studio backdrop.

“Is this his attempt to look cool?? Well, let’s look on the bright side – Jason will probably not feature in this campaign. Otherwise everything else is awful. Awful art direction, awful pose, and awful styling. Ruth Bell is not the right girl for this brand, they needed someone more versatile,” Benn98 criticized straight away, setting the tone for comments to come.

“Awful. She reminds me of Agyness Deyn. A haircut/style that’s not her personal style at all but given by her agency,” laughed DutchHomme. (more…)

Instagram is hands down the fashion industry’s most beloved social platform but it has its drawbacks. Until this week, you couldn’t even switch between accounts without the hassle of logging in and out each time. But alas, change has finally come.

The photo and video-sharing platform officially announced multi-account switching with the latest iOS update (version 7.15). According to App Advice, Instagram started testing the feature as early as November of last year. And just last week, some iOS users noticed they could switch between accounts without signing out.

Watch: James Corden & Cindy Crawford Hilariously Parody Her 1992 Pepsi Commercial

James Corden delivered so much more than Carpool Karaoke for his post-Super Bowl edition of The Late Late Show on Sunday night, recreating Cindy Crawford’s famed 1992 Pepsi commercial, alongside the gravity-defying supermodel herself.

The TV spot is wildly similar to the original (especially considering Cindy looks just as smokin’ hot as she did over 20 years ago) until the vending machine gets jammed and James saves the day, repping the same white singlet and denim cut-offs as the 49-year-old beauty. 

Unlike Prince Charmings before him, though, James takes the treasure all for himself and sculls the whole thing like the true hillbilly he appears to be channelling. We think his belch at the end is really the icing on the cake, but you can compare the two in the videos below.

You Might Not Want Margot Robbie In Your Squad After Watching This

Wondering if Margot Robbie will ever be scouted for Taylor Swift’s girl gang? We reckon her inability to spell squad could be a solid deal breaker.

The Aussie actress revealed on Stephen Colbert this week that she misspelled the modern-day term while tattooing Jai Courtney’s assistant, Simon, permanently imprinting “Swad” on her Suicide Squad colleague instead. It’s on his arm too, so we reckon he probably feels an epic sense of regret every time he doesn’t wear something long sleeved. So, like, all the bloody time. 

Considering Margot’s handed out about 26 tattoos in her time, including one on her own bod, and seems to lap up the experience, we’re going with an “it could’ve been worse” response this time around. Oh, and if you’re wondering how the heck S-Q-U-A-D turned into S-W-A-D, we’ll let Margot explain that for you in the video below.  (more…)

We all knew “Netflix and Chill” was a phenomenon but now we have the data to prove it. Netflix conducted a recent study on the intersection between users’ viewing habits and their relationships. They surveyed 1,0008 Americans between 18 and 39 years of age, and the results were exactly what you’d expect.

Approximately 58% of people bond with their significant other over Netflix. Roughly 72% of respondents would rather have a Netflix and Chill session than go out on a casual date. About 50% of respondents view sharing a Netflix account as an indication that things are getting serious. And Netflix show preferences can actually make or break a relationship: 27% said show compatibility is important, 13% said they would ask someone out if solely based on the shows/movies they prefer, and 25% find people more attractive based on their favorite programs.
