Nothing but Love for Penélope Cruz’s Gorgeous New Cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain (Forum Buzz)

She’s already on the cover of Vogue alongside co-star Ben Stiller to promote Zoolander 2 and now Penélope Cruz goes solo on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. For us, this particular magazine is usually a little hit or miss, but Spanish Bazaar has definitely done us proud this time around. Photographed by Cedric Buchet, the Lancôme ambassador looks drop-dead gorgeous in the image, showing off a killer smoky eye while still looking like the true natural beauty that she is.

Members of our forums were delighted and couldn’t wait to voice their praise. “Reminds me of U.S. Bazaar’s 10 Most Beautiful Women in the World portraits by [Francesco] Scavullo, from back in the 80s/90s. Gorgeous!” admired zoom the moment the cover dropped, setting us off on a high note.

“Simple but pretty! It’s a very natural portrait,” admired GarageGlamorous. (more…)

Watch: Bradley Cooper and Jake Gyllenhaal Hilariously Audition to Play Cher From ‘Clueless’

When news first hit that a Clueless musical was in the works, we immediately pictured the part of Cher being played by Katy Perry. Now we know that Katy can’t hold a candle to Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Seth Rogen and Paul Dano’s version of Cher.

The leading men audition to play Cher Horowitz in a video for W Magazine and they are so dead-on, they give Alicia Silverstone a run for her money. Even Jake Gyllenhaal admits he’s unknowingly been practicing for this role all his life. He actually talks like Cher in everyday conversation. Who knew?

Watch them recreate Cher’s famous debate speech on Haiti (“It does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty”) and prepare to be amazed. The only thing missing is a Calvin Klein slip dress. As if.

The Casting of Prada’s Spring 2016 Campaign Couldn’t Be More Perfect (Forum Buzz)

If there’s one fashion house that has us biting our nails in sheer suspense and anticipation when it comes to advertising campaigns, the trophy goes to Prada. Giving us something completely different from last season‘s mess and going down a darker and more mysterious route, Steven Meisel remains Prada’s man of the moment, bringing home the bacon once again. Veteran models Sasha Pivovarova and Natalia Vodianova go before Meisel’s lens while joining newbie Yasmin Wijnaldum (below), as they separately lounge around what appears to be the ornate surroundings of a fancy hotel lobby.

The images went down as a treat. “Love the art direction, coupled with the set design and photography. This is reminiscent of Meisel’s mid-noughties Prada ads, which is no bad thing. Yasmin looks quite gorgeous here and I’m into the fact that the whole ad looks like it will veer in a more classic direction than the runway show,” applauded Fiercification straight away. (more…)

Here’s a fashion trend we didn’t see coming: penises. They were on full display at Rick Owens Fall 2015 menswear show and served as a theme for Terry Richardson‘s raunchy baby shower. The latest designer to embrace the male sex organ as muse is Vivienne Westwood.

At Men’s Fashion Week in Milan, Westwood dressed male models in colorful prints, pinstripe suits, metallic robes and penis necklaces. The heavy metal jewelry, available in silver and gold, features mini-penises dangling like charms. Westwood clearly has a sense of humor, designing of all things penis chokers. Pause for effect.

Celebrities Call for a Boycott of the Whitewashed Oscars, the Academy Responds


We all dream in gold.

The 2016 Oscars lineup is startling in its lack of diversity. All twenty nominated actors are white for the second year in a row. Will Smith wasn’t nominated for his role in Concussion, Idris Elba was passed over for Beasts of No Nation, Benicio Del Toro’s Sicario performance went unnoticed, Straight Outta Compton was overlooked for best picture and Creed only garnered a nomination for Sylvester Stallone.

In response, Jada Pinkett-Smith announced she’d be boycotting the show, telling fans in a Facebook video: “Begging for acknowledgement, or even asking, diminishes dignity and diminishes power. And we are a dignified people and we are powerful.” She also addressed the fact that the Oscars chose a black host this year, comedian Chris Rock: “At the Oscars, people of color are always welcomed to give out awards, even entertain, but we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments. Should people of color refrain from participating all together?” she asked in a tweet. (more…)

Is Vogue Paris Serious With This Edie Campbell Cover? (Forum Buzz)

After delivering a double issue to cover us over the holidays, Vogue Paris is finally back on our radar. The magazine has unveiled its February 2016 installment and Brit model Edie Campbell is Emmanuelle Alt‘s cover girl of choice to kick off the year. Since having already appeared inside the pages of French Vogue on a number of occasions, our forums guessed it was only a matter of time before she snagged the front cover. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Edie wears a suede Prada coat in the image styled by Emmanuelle herself, as she playfully bites on her thumb.
