Kanye West Doesn’t Care if You Think His Clothes Are Derivative

Kanye West’s outspoken nature is what helped him rise through the ranks of the fashion industry, and it is his same no holes barred, no filter attitude (and now-everlasting bond to the Kardashian family) that keeps him in the fashion news cycle. The rapper is the subject of a profile in magazine, a piece in which Kanye explains what he’s hoping to accomplish in this new chapter of his fashion career.

To West, it’s all about bringing luxury to the masses, making fast fashion high-end. It is a goal he is slowly approaching with his Adidas collaboration (though he has said before he’s not completely satisfied with the lofty price points of the collection). One criticism Kanye has consistently faced during his time designing apparel is that what he creates looks too much like the work of the established designers he likes to wear on a regular basis. 

Well, in case you were wondering Kanye West isn’t concerned whether you think his work is derivative or not. “I would like to be influenced as much as possible,” he told Jon Caramanica. “I don’t care if you can see the influence in something, as long as I made it better.”

Whether or not Kanye’s improving on the work of other designers in his own collections is a matter of opinion, but you’ve got to hand it to him: The guy’s definitely got a distinct taste in clothing.

Anne Hathaway Lip Syncing ‘Wrecking Ball’ Will Make Your Friday

Anne Hathaway gets a lot of flack in the media, but she’s totally won us over with this epic lip syncing battle. The Devil Wears Prada actress appeared on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle, going up against her former co-star Emily Blunt. Blunt wowed the crowd with a rendition of Janis Joplin’s Piece of My Heart, but it was Hathaway’s version of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball that really stole the show.

When we say Hathaway’s turn at the mic was spot-on, we mean it. Hathaway gelled down the sides of her hair to make her ‘do look like Miley’s shaved sides look, donned a cropped white wife beater and a pair of breakaway pants that she ripped off to reveal high-waisted knickers. She got every detail down to the nails. But the big moment was when Hathaway raced to the middle of the stage and hopped onto a wrecking ball of her own, basically leaving Blunt in the dust. 

Chrissy Teigen, who is on the show as a commentator,  tweeted that Hathaway “may have moved me to tears” with her rendition.

Watch Anne Hathaway nail Wrecking Ball like a boss in the video above.

It’s Wonderful to See Arizona Muse on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar Germany (Forum Buzz)

Our feisty forum members have celebrated just about everything Harper’s Bazaar Germany delivers each and every month — the magazine’s May 2015 cover being no exception. We’re thrilled to report that Arizona Muse fronts the newly-released annual beauty issue of the German title.

“Really like this, it’s got a very summery feel. We haven’t seen much of Arizona lately,” expressed Benn98, hitting us off on a positive note the moment the cover surfaced.

“I’m waiting for Arizona to disappoint me and I’m starting to doubt if she could. This is just beautiful! It’s a simple shot that focuses on the beauty of Arizona,” MON shared.

Also in the mood for some Arizona was Style Savvy, who was quick to write, “Beautiful cover. That face is just phenomenal.”

Handbag Queen shared a similar positive opinion, too. “It’s great to see Arizona back on a cover again, have missed seeing her since she signed with Estée Lauder,” she enthused.

“Are we ready for an Arizona comeback?” asked arlekindearrabal.

“Please dear God, no,” replied gossiping, going against the tone of the thread.

Benn98 was quick to return and voice, “Don’t worry, the likes of Julia B, Joséphine, Valery, Maartje etc will still be here. Besides, Arizona is not technically on a hiatus. The amount of Vogue covers and print work she’s secured during her ‘break’ is enough to make a working model weep. I say bring her back!”

Are you as pleased as we are to see Arizona? Let us know here.

Karl Lagerfeld Isn’t Trying to Be in ‘Zoolander 2′

Karl Lagerfeld is a grown-ass man and he is not going to do anything he doesn’t want to do. And in this case, Kaiser Karl really does not want to appear in the upcoming Zoolander 2 film. The movie is expected to be filled with cameos from fashion people, but you’re going to have to count out one of the industry’s most influential designers because he is reportedly not down with appearing on the silver screen alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

“I don’t want to be in the movie!” he told Hello! “They wanted me to be in the movie!” And why did he turn down a chance to bask in the glory of Hollywood? Apparently, he wasn’t quite into that Valentino catwalk cameo Ben and Owen pulled in March during Paris Fashion Week. “I didn’t like it,” he said. “I’m not an actor.” Hey, at least the man knows his strengths.

Kanye West is rumored to be appearing in Zoolander 2 and Carine Roitfeld admitted she’d be down to be in the movie, so if they can’t get Karl, there is a whole host of fashion elites to choose from.

Laura Wells Wanted to Punch Scouters in the Face for Calling Her “Plus-Size”

Laura Wells is one of Australia’s most successful models, and, as the industry currently stands, is considered “plus-size” at a healthy size 14. Yes, she’s now embracing the term, and even getting in social media wars about it, but there was a time where she was terribly offended by the controversial and confusing label.

In an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, Laura said that while she was in New York with her size-8 sister, Courtney Wells, she “wanted to punch everyone in the face” for asking if she was a plus-size model. “Basically I just thought they were calling me fat,” she explained of the scouting agents. “I didn’t know what a plus-size model was, I didn’t know they existed,” she continued.

She went on to explain that while the fashion industry is moving in the right direction and turning to plus-size models for editorials and campaigns more often, people are still reacting in a way they shouldn’t be. “It needs to be at a point where it’s not celebrated anymore,” Laura explained in the interview. “Why isn’t it just seen as normal?”

Fair point, Laura.
