Edie Campbell Is Sorely Miscast in Roberto Cavalli’s Spring Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Back in August 2015, we were anticipating Peter Dundas‘ debut collection for Roberto Cavalli, which ultimately received shocking reviews from our forum members and now the advertising campaign for Spring 2016 doesn’t seem to hold much promise, either. Going against the stereotypical Cavalli woman, Dundas cast Brit beauty Edie Campbell as the face of the iconic Italian label and enlisted the photographic expertise of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The duo shot the model both on location and in the studio for a contrasting set of images, but the idea has fallen completely flat.

“When I think about Roberto Cavalli, the words ‘sex appeal’ come to mind. Why choose Edie who has zero sex appeal? Wow…just sad to see this brand in a lost stage!!” exclaimed a horrified congacon straight away.

Also in a state of shock over the casting was DutchHomme: “How this boring model with a bland face and without facial expressions is scoring so many covers and campaigns…is just unbelievable. Good for her but I don’t get it. ZERO life in her eyes, no energy. She always looks like she needs a good nap.” (more…)

Watch: Chloë Sevigny, Nick Jonas and More Dramatically Recite Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”

In case you’ve been out of the popular culture loop as of late, the new celeb trend is to reimagine chart-toppers as dramatic readings, the latest being Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”.

Inspired by W Magazine‘s spin on Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, Vanity Fair rounded up 29 celebs at Sundance to recite the lyrics of Biebs’ banger of a tune, with the likes of John Legend, Chelsea Handler, Maya Rudolph, Kate Beckinsale and more telling the camera that they’re missing “more than just your body”.

While they don’t really attempt to channel the 21-year-old Canadian, they totally succeed at emphasising how fab these lyrics are, without a hoard of Adidas-clad dancers in the background. They even let out “oh-oh” and “yeah” once or twice. And by once or twice, I mean maybe a couple of hundred times. 

Watch the hilarious video for yourself above.

Oscar Nominee Brie Larson Is ELLE’s March Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Redesigns are all the rage this month with InStyle starting off the trend and now ELLE appears to have switched things up a notch, delivering a clean and minimalist cover for March 2016. The magazine welcomes Oscar nominee Brie Larson to its newly revamped edition, who looks fantastic wearing a lace dress from Givenchy before the lens of Terry Tsiolis.

The change left our forums with mixed views, however. “I think she’s a really good actress but in her print work she always looks so normal and bland IMO. This is the first time that she looks like a movie star. Still, I’m not sure I like it,” voiced an uncertain kokobombon.

“More modern? Huh!! This actually looks dated to me, like a random U.K. ELLE cover from 2005!!” critiqued Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Shailene Woodley Covers InStyle’s Newly Revamped March Issue (Forum Buzz)

Given the fact that InStyle subtly rejigged its masthead back in November 2014, we should have known a full-blown redesign of the magazine was coming this spring, complete with an entirely different layout and a host of new fonts. For InStyle‘s March 2016 Super Fashion Issue boasting 490 pages, Shailene Woodley graces the title’s front cover, shot by Thomas Whiteside. Styled by Melissa Rubini, the Divergent actress wears an intriguing dress from Delpozo as she entices us to grab a copy when the mag hits newsstands on February 12.

Unfortunately, InStyle‘s overhaul did not go down too well with our forums. “What in the world is going on with U.S. InStyle?? Awful March cover. Shailene’s cover a couple of years back was much nicer than this. I am really not liking the background colors they’re using…the white worked much better for them,” disapproved Handbag Queen.

“Wow that Shailene cover is awful. She looks sweaty and uncomfortable!” exclaimed an unimpressed SallyAlbright. (more…)

Kanye Blocked Kylie From Landing a $1 Million Puma Deal

When Kanye West married into the Kardashian family, the sisters must have signed a contract saying they can only work with Yeezy-approved brands. That’s the only way to explain the outspoken rapper’s latest rant in which he chastised Puma for approaching Kylie Jenner for an ambassador role.

Shame on them for thinking Kylie Jenner had the authority to work with any brand she chooses. Yes, she modeled for both seasons of Yeezy’s clothing line but she’s also worked with several other fashion brands from PacSun to Topshop. She even designs her own shoes. Nonetheless, Kanye sees Puma’s perfectly reasonable request as an attempt to “divide the family.” (more…)
