Not Even Dylan Brosnan Can Save Burberry’s Spring 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Just like Stuart Weitzman‘s campaign proved, change is in the air with the Spring 2016 advertisements and Burberry‘s is the latest to surface. Getting rid of the busy and hectic atmosphere of last season, Mario Testino remains Christopher Bailey‘s photographer of choice, shooting several personalities as they pose against a white backdrop. The cast includes sisters Ruth and May Bell, Dylan Brosnan, Misha Hart, Eliza Fairbanks and Liam Gardner, who each have a turn in the spotlight before Testino’s lens.

Forum members made up their minds fairly quickly. “It’s like a Zara campaign,” expressed an underwhelmed MON.

“If I see this advert, go into the store and find out the clothes are so much more expensive than Zara, I’ll be very disappointed,” Mody chimed in, suggesting the campaign looked cheap and inexpensive for a brand like Burberry. (more…)

Chrissy Teigen’s Cookbook Is Finally Here — and It’s Awesome

There are so many reasons to love Chrissy Teigen. She’s an in-demand supermodel, a supportive wife to John Legend, a comedian with a deadpan sense of humor, and a spectacular cook to boot. If you follow her on Instagram, you know that Chrissy’s refreshingly down-to-earth about her food choices. She’ll whip up a sophisticated dish like rack of lamb and then wax poetic about her love for rice “Chrissy” treats. The girl even makes her own homemade potato chips and dip! Chrissy’s channeling her love for food into a cookbook, which she titled Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat in a playful nod to her current pregnancy cravings (we think).

The social media maven tweeted her excitement, writing: “Oh crap oh crap! My cookbook is available for pre-order and officially has a cover debut which is nowwwwwww! Ah!” The cover features Chrissy smiling gleefully with food in hand, hovering over a table of ingredients. Cravings is a collaboration with food writer and recipe developer Adeena Sussman and it’s edited by Top Chef Masters judge Francis Lam. If Cravings is half as good as Teigen’s food blog, So Delushious, we’re in for a treat. Pre-order Teigen’s new cookbook, available in February 2016, here.

Watch: Bella Hadid and Crew Channel ‘Kill Bill’ in New Love Advent Video

This year, LOVE Magazine drew inspiration from movies like Jaws and Mean Girls for its famous LOVE Advent videos. The hottest clip yet pulls from a surprising film: Kill Bill. Nothing’s sexier than flirting with danger, and Bella Hadid, Kelly Rohrbach and Stella Maxwell do just that in the steamy video, released on Monday. The three models embody #SquadGoals as they tap into alter egos “Black Widow,” “Cherry Pie” and “Whiplash,” respectively. They wield knives, throw mysterious suitcases into car trunks, drag shovels and whip ropes around. And of course, they’re dressed to kill in corsets, gloves, knee-high boots and Bella’s badass black hair. Watch the Gregory Harris-directed clip above and be afraid. Be very afraid.

Bella Hadid evolves from a knife-wielding killer to a superheroine in today’s LOVE Advent video. Directed by Doug Inglish, the minute-long clip finds Bella doing stuff normal humans do like filing her nails. But — wait! — she has superhuman powers. Bella magically transforms into a peplum dress and lingerie with bunny ears right before our eyes. She finally settles on a Wonder Woman costume and flies away. This is how everyone should get dressed in the morning. Catch Bella’s solo clip below: (more…)

Every model worth their salt has been in Mario Testino’s esteemed Towel Series, so it’s only fitting that the world’s most-loved fictional model has finally taken part in the project.

Acting as the series’ 100th instalment since its inception with Kate Moss, Derek Zoolander poses in a headscarf, biker vest and wrap skirt, aka “Post-Hanukka Daiye Spa look”, for the milestone shot.

Besides the black and white filter and the towel fabric, it’s not really what we’re used to seeing from this series, however, Mario has always asserted that the beauty of this project is that you can “wear [the towel] however you want”. (more…)

Swearing Is Linked to Having an Extensive Vocabulary, According to Research

We’re warned from day one that swearing is bad, but it turns out it’s actually quite a good thing to be profanity proficient. No, we’re not just cursing connoisseurs trying to get away with inappropriate language. There’s actually a study that proves the link between swearing and an extensive vocabulary, meaning all those walking thesauruses are probably big ol’ foul mouths too.

That might sound odd to you considering that swear words seem like an easier option than, you know, tame in-the-dictionary words, but research recently published in the Language of Sciences journal (Via Cosmpolitan) says otherwise.

In what we’re sure would’ve been a fun experiment, subjects were asked to say as many swear words that they could think of in 60 seconds. They were then set a non-swearing task, like listing animal names, to complete in the same amount of time. (more…)
