Daria Werbowy Shoots Kate Moss for Equipment’s Raw Spring 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Spring 2016 advertising campaigns have been pretty underwhelming so far, but Equipment‘s brand new campaign has received a boatload of love from our forums. Long-term face of the brand Daria Werbowy returns, but with a unique twist. The French brand handed all creative responsibility to the Canadian/Ukrainian beauty as she joins Kate Moss in the raw black and white images. Daria photographed an effortless Kate, captured with wet hair and no makeup as the pair playfully shot the campaign on the idyllic island of Mustique.

“These are really beautiful and strong images,” complimented Nomar with forum member thatsfierce agreeing, “I think this is fantastic.” (more…)

Just as you were starting to slack on your 2016 diet resolutions, Gwyneth Paltrow has unveiled a detox to guilt get you back into shape. On her famous lifestyle website Goop, Paltrow shared a 7-day plan to give “our guts a break” and shed the “few extra pounds we just might have picked up at the end of the year.” She’s not referring to herself, of course, just the rest of us.

The diet plan is pretty intense, excluding gluten, dairy, corn, soy, sugar, red meat, white rice, shellfish and our favorites: caffeine and alcohol. But Paltrow promises the goal is not “starvation,” just misery. We kid. She’s allowing us to replace our beloved “wine, bread and french fries” with things like “delicious mung dal.” Yum!

She also suggests a colonic to get things started, as well as regular yoga, walking and spa sessions. And if the idea of a long walk followed by mung dal dinner seems downright awful, Paltrow offers plenty of motivational rhetoric. “This time of the year, we just stay the course,” says the accidental life coach.

W Magazine Selects Some of Hollywood’s Finest for Its Bland Annual Movie Issue (Forum Buzz)

“I like seeing Eddie, even though he does seem to only have one facial expression when it comes to his photographic work, but still, nice to see him here,” noted honeycombchild the moment the first cover surfaced.

“I agree his expression never changes, this photo does not say anything to me,” Bertrando3 chimed in. (more…)

Jennifer Lopez Fails to Impress on InStyle’s ‘Dark and Moody’ February Cover (Forum Buzz)

It’s official: InStyle‘s redesign is here to stay as the magazine releases yet another cover featuring its revamped masthead. Jennifer Lopez is unveiled as InStyle‘s February 2016 cover star, replacing Viola Davis‘ joyful cover at the newsstand this month. In total contrast, Jennifer goes for a more somber and sultry mood as she gazes down the lens of photographer Greg Kadel. The singer-slash-actress wears an Acne Studios sweater teamed with a Calvin Klein skirt on the cover, styled by Melissa Rubini.

The cover, however, raised a lot of questions with our forum members. “I think Jennifer is truly beautiful but that image doesn’t do much for me at all. It also does look very Glamour!” criticized honeycombchild straight away.

“Wow, what a Glamour cover!” agreed MON. (more…)

Even Naomi Campbell Can’t Pull Off The Pink Wig and Garish Makeup on Vogue Portugal’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Major snaps for Vogue Portugal this month, having just dropped an original cover shoot featuring none other than modeling sensation Naomi Campbell. An original cover story marks a change for the Portuguese edition of Vogue since it regularly delivers reprints (even though the mag often still nails it). Going all out and tapping photographer An Le, the Brit beauty looks fierce in dramatic makeup, complemented by a hot pink wig for the eye-catching shot.

Was the cover enough to impress our feisty forum members, though? “I get that Naomi’s face is mangled now and not that easy to shoot. But my god, this woman defined an industry so please please please Fabien [Baron] and his team work with her — and not these lesser knowns that turn her into some wax figure,” slammed Phuel.

“This would have been a great Interview Germany cover! But for Vogue, the hair is just ridiculous,” justaguy mocked. (more…)
