Kate Hudson’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover Is Nearly Identical to Her Cover From 2013 (Forum Buzz)

Over recent years, our forums have recognized that Harper’s Bazaar tends to recreate past covers, but we didn’t expect a near exact replica of one of its covers from 2013 — with the same cover star. Kate Hudson stars on Bazaar‘s double holiday edition for December/January, photographed by controversial photographer Terry Richardson. Shot once again before a vibrant pink background and flashing an energetic smile, Kate wears a dress by Gucci and we’re just so over it.

Members of our forums were far from blown away. “Cheesy as hell and by Richardson, fail and fail IMO,” kokobombon slammed straight away.

“They must be showcasing her new line of workout clothes. Regardless, overused styling on the cover mixed with typical Richardson tackiness,” added justaguy in agreement. (more…)

What’s gotten into Victoria Beckham? The woman who once said she couldn’t concentrate in flats showed up to an interview with The Telegraph in Tommy Hilfiger sweats. Sweatpants, people! Is this the sign of a new, more relatable Victoria? It must be because she also told them she wants to design a collection with an affordable mass retailer like Target or H&M. Next, she’ll tell us the Spice Girls are reuniting.

The mother of four revealed she wants “to reach out to women all around the world, no matter what their budget” and “offer designer clothes to women who either can’t afford them or don’t want to pay designer prices.” How benevolent!

As for the sweats, she gave no direct explanation for her new look but acknowledged she dresses “differently now to how I did” when the line was created in 2008. “I wear looser dresses, flat shoes,” she revealed. “I can express myself in a different way. I want to evolve each season.” We couldn’t be happier with her evolution, especially if it leads to budget-friendly sheath dresses at Target or H&M.

A Brooklyn-based beauty company is trying to promote a French-themed nail polish range in the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks which hit Paris over the weekend.

NY Post reports that Duri Cosmetics distributed a press release which suggested customers purchase patriotic nail colours including a cobalt “Baton Rouge Blue”, white “I do” and blue “Parisian Tango” so that “beauty mavens can unite and wave hands (and toes) in unity”.

It stated that at $6 per polish, it’s an “effortless way to pay respects and show support” and that you can “offer a helping hand to Paris” with a “high ten” manicure. (more…)

WATCH: The First Boy In A Barbie Advertisement Fiercely Breaks Down Gender Barriers

Barbie creators Mattel have finally publicly recognised that girls and boys like to play with dolls.

In a new advertisement for the limited-edition Moschino Barbie, we see a mini Jeremy Scott look-a-like adorably hold Barb’s bag in his fingers and tell us why all 700 dolls sold out in under an hour: “It’s so fierce.” Natch.

In what’s set to be a stepping stone for more inclusion and equality with children in toy advertisements, it’s a brilliant reminder that not only do children play, and have for decades, with toys regardless of their gender stereotype, but that it’s ok to as well. (more…)

ICYMI: Cate Blanchett Transforms Again In the Name of Art

From Bob Dylan to Elizabeth I, Cate Blanchett has proven her vast range by perfecting a wide variety of characters. Those Oscar-winning skills have been put to good use with filmed performances of 13 different manifestos for Berlin-based artist Julian Rosefeldt’s aptly titled exhibition Manifesto, showing at Melbourne’s Australian Centre for the Moving Image this December.

With Cate’s new Vogue Australia cover looking reasonably close to her natural appearance, German magazine Monopol transformed Cate into four starkly different characters on individual covers back in April, with the images resurfacing this month in the lead up to the exhibition.

From a peppy, flame-haired newsreader to a bearded homeless man, a seductive brunette and stern ballet teacher, Cate indulges us with her metamorphosis into vastly different personas. No stranger to flexing her skills in switching up her appearance for her craft, we have no doubt her performances will match the impressive transformation into the characters. (more…)
