See The First Image of Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme Paris

Since Lupita Nyong'o was announced as a Lancôme ambassador, we've been patiently waiting for the first images of her campaign to surface. One of our eagle-eyed forum members, JoCaderone got his hands on an image from the campaign and, as expected, it's pretty much devoid of any flaw, real or imagined. What do you expect from the world's most beautiful woman?

Here, Nyong'o poses for Lancôme's Tient Idole Ultra 24H foundation, which is available in 28 shades including Lupita's. 

We don't think Lupita has ever taken a bad picture, so why would she start with her big debut for Lancôme? Needless to say, the actress looks stunning and the rich rosy brown tones of her skin are made even more beautiful by the fact that her pores haven't been completely erased in retouching. 

It's a gorgeous ad, and we're swooning, OK?

Tell us what you think about Lupita's latest in the comments, or head over to our forum to join the discussion.

Forum Buzz: Michael Kors Reveals Another ‘Boring’ Fall 2014 Campaign

Fall 2014 campaigns are slowly trickling out, and Michael Kors has released the images for his latest offering and well–the shots are definitely classic Kors, but maybe a little too classic for our forum members, who seemed to be wholly unimpressed.

"Boring as always," said burjuba8910. Moofins agreed: "I always find Kors' campaigns to be cripplingly dull, this isn't an exception."

"Such a good collection, yet same ol' cheesy cliche campaign," quoth HeatherAnne

Though our members can agree that the campaign is a snoozefest, plenty were happy to see Kors regular Karmen Pedaru alongside Benjamin Eidem, who's taking over for Simon Nessman as the face of Michael Kors Men's. 

"Congrats to Ben. A perfect choice for the brand," said HDStoker.

Elfinkova seemed to thoroughly sum up everyone's thoughts: "Karmen's finalized her divorce and a season later she's got a new, sexy man. You go girl. In all seriousness, Benji fits Kors better than Simon ever did. I love Simon, but he looked too young next to the womanly Karmen."

What Could Kanye West Possibly Be Teaching at L.A. Trade Technical College?

Kanye West is currently serving community service hours after cutting a plea bargain with the photographer he roughed up last July. But while other celebs have completed their hours picking up trash (in couture gowns, if you're Naomi Campbell), Kanye's serving out his hours doing his favorite thing: yakking about fashion.

The rapper will complete his 250 hours by giving lectures at the L.A. Trade Technical College and apparently the focus of his speeches are all expected to be about fashion. And here we thought community service was supposed to be a punishment, rather than an opportunity to have an ego-boosting experience. TMZ reveals that Kanye has visited the school three times in the past six weeks. His most recent session was a three-hour talk about designers. We scoured social media to see if we could find any Instagram or Twitter footage on his talks, and sadly, there is none, so for now, Kanye's lessons remain a mystery to all outside his classroom. The most we could find were star-struck tweets confirming he was there.

So, if you're reading this and you actually attend LATTC and were in the class–we'd like to hear all about it.

H&M Collaborates with Liberty for a Printastic Menswear Offering

We love it when Swedish retailer H&M teams up with a designer and gives us all the chance to purchase a high-end looking piece at a fraction of the price — and the latest in the collaboration pipeline is Liberty. The quintessentially British department store with a contemporary edge is renowned for being an emporium for innovative and eclectic designs, and is a must-see for those visiting London.

Liberty 1

Liberty is most well-known for its unique prints covering everything from scarves to books, spanning both classic heritage to reinterpreted archival patterns. Unfortunately for us ladies, the H&M x Liberty collaboration will be menswear only, covering shirts, handkerchiefs and a bow tie, costing around 15 to 50 euros each. But we’re pretty sure that we could at least pull off one of the shirts if we fall in love with the print enough!

The prints in question aim to mix classic Liberty patterns with current trends and we can’t wait to see the final pieces. The capsule collection will be available in September in select stores internationally.

Patrick Robinson Ousted at Armani Exchange

It seems as if Patrick Robinson can't catch a break. The designer was famously fired from his position as head designer at The Gap in 2011 after the label began to experience slowing sales under his leadership. He kicked around for a while after that with Pashko, a crowd-funded fashion line he sold through Kickstarter. It seemed Robinson finally regained his footing in 2013 when he was named creative director at Armani Exchange, but according to Page Six, Robinson has just been let go from that gig, too.

While sources say that Robinson was fired over a dip in sales, others say it was a copyright infringement issue with David Yurman that did him in. The "Torc" bracelet, designed for Armani Exchange's men's collection, bore a striking similarity to Yurman's popular cable cuff bracelets. 

Yurman's people allegedly contacted Robinson with a cease-and-desist letter, but other sources say that it was mainly lackluster sales that got him booted, though "this issue was the smoking gun.” An official statement from Armani Exchange, says that bracelet-gate had no bearing on the decision to axe Robinson. "Patrick Robinson left the brand amicably several weeks ago. His departure and this alleged claim of the Yurman’s sending us a cease-and-desist letter are entirely unrelated.”

Fendi Makes Headphones with Beats by Dre

These past few months have been big for Beats by Dre. The company was recently purchased by Apple, making founder Dr. Dre that much closer to becoming hip-hop's first billionaire. But before his accounts enter the nine-figure mark, Beats has scooped up another high fashion collaboration. Fendi's teamed up with them on a range of headphones, a sampling which showed during the label's menswear show earlier today.

The collection will offer over-the-ear leather headphones stamped with the Fendi emblem in a range of colors: red, yellow, blue, black, green and gray, with a black croco option if you're fancy. As for pricing, nothing's set in stone but according to a Fendi spokesperson, you might have to shill out about $1,300 for a pair. To borrow a phrase from Drake: that's luxury, dawg.

You won't be able to get your hands on them until later this year, but they are pretty swagged out.
