The Edit’s Unretouched Cover of Gillian Anderson Is Perfection (Forum Buzz)

Ever since its debut back in 2013, our forums have been tremendous admirers and supporters of everything The Edit delivers. Net-a-Porter‘s digital magazine certainly gets our seal of approval this week after releasing its latest offering featuring a practically unairbrushed Gillian Anderson on the cover. Shot against a classic gray studio backdrop by Nico Bustos, The X-Files actress looks sensational in a figure-hugging dress from Victoria Beckham, styled by Charlotte Blazeby. Gillian’s blond hair was scraped back from her face and a minimal amount of makeup was applied to complete the look, leaving our forums speechless.

Our forums couldn’t wait to express some major kudos! “Perfection!!! Proof that this woman needs more fashion covers, stat! I’m obsessed with that second shot. Looks incredibly sexy, and her body looks so toned!” exclaimed a more than satisfied Benn98.

“Go Gillian! She’s one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. With The X-Files premiering soon, you’d think she would get at least one mainstream cover! But I’m happy with this one,” approved kokobombon. (more…)

A model at Avoc’s Fall 2015 show donned a latex mask bearing the polarizing candidate’s face and signature scowl.

Despite the combover, the Avoc version of Trump was quite stylish, wearing a houndstooth turtleneck and navy peacoat. The unisex brand sent a few other notable politicians down the runway alongside the Donald.  (more…)

The notion that sex sells is as old as, well, sex. But the fashion industry is taking its fixation with lewdness to unprecedented heights. After sending penis necklaces down the runway, Vivienne Westwood announced that gay porn star Colby Keller will star in the brand’s Spring 2016 campaign, full frontal of course.

Lensed by Juergen Teller, the campaign finds Keller posing pants-less in the streets of Venice (see the NSFW images here), in an effort to raise awareness about damage done to the environment. “Vivienne Westwood is not only a fashion hero of mine, she’s a passionate advocate for the environment,” he said. “We all need to focus our attention on the problem of climate change, especially when our political culture fails to address the catastrophe coming.” But will viewers focus on climate change, or his naughty bits on full display?

Members of our forums shared mixed views toward the cover, however. “I like it, it’s really striking. I bet it’s gonna stand out on the newsstands!” enthused Nepenthes at once.
