We’re Obsessed With This Vogue Australia Editorial (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Australia April 2013 - The Sweetest Thing featuring Cassi van den Dungen

Who knew bee-keeping could look so beautiful and romantic? Vogue Australia, that’s who. In a new editorial photographed by Will Davidson and styled by Jillian Davidson for the magazine's April 2013 issue (covered by Aussie go-to Miranda Kerr), models Cassi van den Dungen (who was the runner-up in the fifth cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model) and Lucas Pittaway make us fall for The Sweetest Thing. Forum members – including me – are completely smitten.

“I've been expecting a bee-inspired editorial since Alexander McQueen’s Spring collection and this is fantastic,” UpperEchelon commented.

“Whyyyyyyyyyy would you not put that on the cover?!?” HeatherAnne (who is not a Miranda Kerr fan) lamented. “Beautifully themed, styled, and Cassi looks stunning. I adore it,” she added.

Swizzi declared, “The Sweetest Thing is incredible – I can almost feel and hear the bees flying around! The atmosphere in that editorial is mesmerizing. Well done!”

Neely also heaped on the praise: “I am completely in love with The Sweetest Thing!” she exclaimed.“The colors and tones of the photos work wonderfully. And the opening shot = magnificent!”

Magnificent pretty much sums it up. And on another note, why can’t our supposed Next Top Models reach these kinds of heights? I blame Tyra.

We Pick Our Favorite Kate Young for Target Looks

So here are some pages from the Kate Young for Target look book. I'm looking at the looks and I'm thinking, "These are pretty cute!" Right? Semi-formal. Cocktail attire. Profesh. Totally not me. Could Target please just design a limited-edition Extremely Cozy Pajama Collection in Muted Earth Tones? I have all the black-and-white satin column gowns and embellished yellow mini-dresses I need, thanks. 

Target's designer partnerships have been pioneering, and this collaboration marks the retailer's first major attempt to broaden its approach to limited-edition fashion collections. Celebrity stylist Young's clients include Michelle WilliamsNatalie Portman and Rachel Weisz. Last year she topped The Hollywood Reporter's "Most Powerful Stylists" list.

Kate Young for Target will be available in stores and online on April 14. Apparel will retail at $29.99 to $89.99 and $14.99 to $49.99 for accessories.

Come Look at Michelle Obama’s Vogue Cover!

At around midnight last night, Vogue's highly anticipated April 2013 cover appeared on the publication's Facebook page. Michelle Obama, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, wears a dark cerulean Reed Krakoff dress with eggplant paneling. And salmon pink lipstick. Against an apple green backdrop (really enjoying the process of identifying colors at this stage in my life).

She looks niiiiice. She looks basically exactly like she always does — that is, like our awesome First Lady. What am I supposed to do here, do you want me to talk about her hair? Okay: It's not great but it doesn't really change the way I feel about the person whose head it's on. Also, not a fan of her eyebrows but who cares? They're FLOTUS eyebrows. Any ordinary person that goes out and gets their eyebrows shaped like Michelle Obama's needs to find another eyebrow style icon. Do you get called upon to host dinners for heads of state or present awards in front of millions of people? If not, your eyebrows don't have to be plucked into a rigid line of perfection.

Myleene Klass’ New Swimwear Range for Littlewoods

British style icon, Myleene Klass, has just released yet another fab collection for the retailer Littlewoods, but this time it comes in the form of swimwear. A shocking first for the lady whose celebrity rocketed subsequent to that iconic white bikini which she wore whilst appearing as a contestant on the reality TV show I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of Here!

The British weather may be extra cold outdoors but at least Myleene’s tropical beach themed line can help to cheer us up and look forward to our own hot summer getaways. The range is comprised of 25 pieces and there’s something for everyone as the styles vary between bold prints, curvy cover-ups and on-trend separates such as striped skirts. Leopard print is set to be a big trend this spring, so the animal print bikini (below) would make the perfect addition to your holiday wardrobe, with the bottoms costing £17 and the top £22.

Myleene’s red ruffle bikini (above) is a super easy way to get on board the ruffle trend. As with the leopard print suit, the bottoms cost £17 and the top £22.

Other Must Haves

Myleene, of course, still has her main clothing line at Littlewoods, to which she’s just added a few new gorgeous pieces which range between casual daytime girly dresses to full-on vamp numbers. Two of the best have to be her bird print tea dress £74, which you have to admit encompasses the typical Kate Middleton daytime shape, and her red sweetheart bodycon dress £74 that screams Kim Kardashian.

Vancouver Has It All: Fashion Week Lineup and Christian Dior Exclusive

West coasters rejoice as there's some great news coming out of Vancouver this week. First and foremost, Vancouver Fashion Week has just announced its lineup of more than sixty local and international designers, all of whom are going to showcase their latest Fall/Winter 2013 collections at the forthcoming Canadian sartorial revelry.

The five-day event begins March 19 (coinciding with Toronto's World Mastercard Fashion Week) and will be attended by buyers, diplomats and nearly 150 fashion journalists from all over the world. Over 18 foreign designers like Beijing-based Liu Lu, Lila Nova from Athens and South African born Jacob Kimmie will showcase their award-winning feminine and edgy styles on the runways. Local names like Shelley Klassen of Blushing Boutique and students from LaSalle College will also feature their latest creations.

The glamorous soiree will be opened with a spectacular runway presentation by Vancouver-based haute couturier Boboli boutique. If you haven't already nabbed your tickets, you can still purchase them directly from vanfashionweek.com

Of course, since it's impossible to attend both Toronto and Vancouver Fashion Week, forward-thinking Vancouverites have done us the courtesy of hosting a live stream of all their shows, just so that fashionistas outside of BC can experience the best of both worlds.

In other Van news, the rainy city will soon be the home of the first free-standing Christian Dior women's clothing boutique in Canada, and one of only a handful in North America. The store will be on the southeast corner of Alberni and Thurlow Streets in Downtown Vancouver, housed in the Carlyle retail complex.

To date, Christian Dior currently has three shop-in-store accessory boutiques at Holt Renfrew stores in Vancouver, Toronto (Bloor Street) and Montreal, but no free-standing space of its own. Its past attempt at a ready-to-wear shop-in-store at Toronto's Creeds department store resulted in closure after Creed went bankrupt in 1990.

Chanel, De Beers and Tory Burch are also seeking a plot in the vicinity, however, as has been pointed out by Retail Insider, this means these luxury retailers will be sharing their space with a 12,000 square foot dollar-store tenant called Dollar Tree. Hey, it's always nice to mix your luxury goods with frugal finds!
