Gigi Hadid Embodies Carine Roitfeld’s ‘Americana’ on CR Fashion Book’s New Cover (Forum Buzz)

CR Fashion Book has been teasing us for weeks via social media about its upcoming Americana edition. Carine Roitfeld‘s namesake fashion bible is never short of a few headlines with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga serving as past cover subjects, so expectations were high. The magazine has finally unveiled its eighth edition featuring four different cover stars: Gigi Hadid, Staz Lindes, Kayla Scott and Bentley Mescall, each embodying Roitfeld’s interpretation of true American beauty.

Roitfeld’s choices left our forum members with a few questions, however. “I expected something better with MAJOR American supermodels aka Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley & Christy Turlington,” declared a disapproving DutchHomme.

“Who still buys this magazine? It’s like LOVE but depressingly irrelevant and even more obnoxious,” stated an equally unimpressed Marc10. (more…)

Supermodels Channel Superheroes for Garage Magazine (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that the majority of the March fashion glossies have failed to deliver, but Garage pulls out all the stops, unveiling a fresh set of covers for its Spring/Summer 2016 edition and having a little fun while doing it. The contemporary art and fashion biannual magazine cast a handful of beauties, including Cuba Tornado Scott, Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Lexi Boling, to portray Marvel superheroes. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, it was only natural for the girls to battle it out for best cover.

Lena Dunham has voiced outrage over the outcome of Kesha’s court case against Dr Luke AKA Lukas Gottwald. In an essay in the latest issue of her feminist newsletter, Lenny, Dunham says she felt “sick” when she heard that Kesha had been denied her motion to be released from a contract tying her to the producer who allegedly sexually abused her, and is “mad as hell.”

“When I saw the outcome of Kesha’s court case last Friday, I felt sick. Actually sick — I wanted to ask my Uber to pull over so I could throw up in a New York City trash can,” writes Dunham. “The photos of her beautiful face crumpled with tears, the legally necessary but sickening use of the word ‘alleged’ over and over in reference to the assault she says she remembers so vividly — it all created a special brand of nausea that comes when public events intersect with your most private triggers.”

In the piece, titled Why Kesha’s Case Is About More Than Just Kesha, Dunham describes the case for any readers who may not have been following it before going on to say why the ruling has wider implications for women in general.

Dakota Johnson Has Never Looked Better as Marie Claire’s March Cover Star (Forum Buzz)

Starring in a movie like Fifty Shades of Grey was bound to get you some exposure at some point and with two Vogue cover appearances already under her belt, Dakota Johnson just landed her first Marie Claire cover. The American title unfortunately got itself off to a rocky start this year, failing to deliver with messy and overstyled covers. But the publication appears to redeem itself for March 2016, putting out a vibrant and effortless cover shot by photographer Txema Yeste. Styled wearing Proenza Schouler and teamed with a bright red lip, Dakota has never looked better.

Remember that kind of frightening Eyeball Tattooing trend we reported on a while back? Well it seems that the controversial procedure has just been regulated in NSW, following a raft of health amendments enacted last Friday.

Declaring that “eyeball tattooing, tongue piercing and tongue tattooing are skin penetration procedures”, the amendments have drawn criticism from the Opposition who want to see the practice banned.

Involving injecting the whites of the eyes, or sclera, with coloured dye or dyes, many are concerned about the long term effects of the relatively new procedure. There have been cases of blindness already, however many eye surgeons also suggest the practice could have carcinogenic effects. (more…)
