Steven Meisel Photographs Prada’s ‘Hot Mess’ of a Resort 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Prada‘s Fall 2015 advertising campaign left us underwhelmed, as models wandered aimlessly around a studio. Due to the lack of Steven Meisel‘s presence at Vogue Italia, we now find ourselves yearning for pictures shot by the legendary lensman and thankfully, Prada’s new Resort 2016 campaign fulfills our needs. Models Lexi Boling, Meghan Collison, Ina Maribo Jensen, Lineisy Montero, Julia Nobis and Greta Varlese come together in the recently released ads, shot up against garage doors with some good studio lighting, which had our forum members descending upon the thread like wildfire.

Members of our forums shared different views. “Shot by Meisel. A-MA-ZING, love how moody this feels compared to the Fall campaign, can’t wait to see more,” raved Riseup, keen to see what else is to come.

“I like it! It feels fresh and they managed to get the same vibe as the show. And Lineisy!” contributed an equally impressed GivenchyHomme.

Also liking what he saw was quangthinh, writing, “What a hot mess! I love it, they all look stunning.” (more…)

Vogue’s French vs. American Women Video Is the Funniest Thing You’ll See Today

As the two fashion capitals of the world, it’s easy to see why New York and Paris are often pitted against one other. We compare our Fashion Weeks (Paris wins), our street style (Paris wins again), our food (New York by a landslide) and the list goes on. Vogue takes a humorous look at that enduring conflict with a new video featuring model Camille Rowe, who goes back-and-forth between both cities. She hilariously captures New York’s cynical view of romance, Paris’s aversion to selfies and more. Check it out above.

Lanvin Employees Protest Alber Elbaz’s Alleged Firing

News of Alber Elbaz’s departure shook the fashion world yesterday but it seems Lanvin’s employees are the most devastated group of all. The 330-person staff is reportedly protesting the designer’s alleged firing, demanding meetings with majority owner Shaw-Lan Wang, chanting “Alber, Alber, Alber!” and threatening to take legal action at Paris’ commercial court.

Original reports claimed that Alber’s exit was a mutual decision but The New York Times‘ Vanessa Friedman revealed he was ousted by Wang, which better explains the employee reaction and pushback. Alber Elbaz served as creative director at Lanvin for 14 years, reviving the brand as one of Paris’ top fashion houses. Elbaz alluded to disagreements with the fashion house’s owners in a formal statement, writing, “I hope that [Lanvin] finds the business vision it needs to engage in the right way forward.”

His is the second high profile departure of late as Raf Simons stepped down at Dior last week. It’s unlikely that Elbaz, who is rumored to be a contender for Simons’ former position, will ever return to Lanvin.

Another angel gets her wings! Gigi Hadid just booked the gig of a lifetime walking in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show and her reaction was so priceless it made it to Instagram. Victoria’s Secret posted a video of Gigi’s audition where the model impresses casting directors with her killer catwalk (you can hear cries of “gorgeous” in the background).

The next thing you hear is, “What are you doing on November 9th and 10th?” to which Gigi answers, “I don’t know,” while erupting in giggles. “Why don’t you come join us?” follows, prompting the top model to squeal and fall to her knees with excitement. And we’re pretty sure that’s a tear forming in the corner of her right eye.

This moment definitely eclipses Gigi’s South Park cameo as the “most iconic five seconds of her existence.” Congrats, Gigi! And P.S. how great does she look in a bra and panties? Take that, body shamers.

Would You Pay $30,000 for Jewellery Designed by Nicole Trunfio?

Right now we can think of at least a dozen things that $30,000 could go towards instead of a new piece of jewellery. A new car, the long overdue renovations needed on our houses, groceries for a whole year, or, well, anything really.

But this way of thinking has’t stopped renowned Australian model Nicole Trunfio, who has put her high status to good use by creating a 92-piece jewellery collection that pretty much no one can afford. However, she insists it’s worth so much more than what it’s retailed for. (more…)

With so much Suicide Squad press circling in the lead up to Halloween, it makes sense for people to dress up as one of the characters for the scary holiday. 

Poppy Delevingne opted for Margot Robbie‘s character, Harley Quinn, for Unicef’s Halloween Ball in London on Thursday night, which is an interesting role to choose considering her sister, Cara Delevingne, plays Enchantress in the upcoming film. (more…)
