Selena Gomez Goes Topless for V Magazine’s ‘Disturbing’ Cover (Forum Buzz)

According to V Magazine, the new trend this spring is going topless — or that’s what it’s conveying on the newly released Spring 2015 cover. Selena Gomez is the magazine’s latest cover conquest, posing for Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, captured in their true photographic style against a gray backdrop inside the studio. Selena wears nothing but a pair of tight denim shorts from Guess and a ribbon in her tightly curled tresses.

Our forum members went haywire once the cover spread across the Internet. “The topless thing that’s been done since the dawn of time. Groundbreaking,” declared A.D.C., who was about to set the negative tone of the thread.

“She looks underage and I feel uncomfortable,” added Melancholybaby. This doesn’t look good for sales this month.

Sharing the same sentiments was Thefrenchy: “She looks like a child, that’s very disturbing.”

MON felt the same way: “Everything about this is lazy. Styling meh. The tagline… laziest ever. It’s her freaking song title and it’s gonna be used as her tagline? Uhm they can do better than that. The hair is all sorts wrong. The pose makes her head look round. She looks underage and this to me is like a child porn cover. It’s disturbing.”

“I add to the general sentiment that she looks like a child, they went for the whole Latina cliche and it backfired because of her childlike face imo. Her innocent, deer in headlights expression is not helping either,” kokobombon replied in agreement.

Forum member youarearockstar wasn’t feeling it, either. “That is one of the roughest covers I’ve seen in awhile,” he stated.

For all the criticism Hedi Slimane has received at the helm of Saint Laurent, you would think the house wasn’t doing well. But in reality, Saint Laurent is soaring. Parent company Kering announced sales figures for the label, and it turns out that since hiring Slimane, revenue for the house has continued to increase. 

Since Slimane’s stint at the helm of Saint Laurent started three years ago, the brand has doubled its revenue, clocking in at €707.3 million in 2014. 

Even with all the drama behind seating at fashion shows and fighting with critics, fashion is a business and if you’re earning money, that’s really all that matters. The folks at Kering seem to have no problem with Slimane, despite the polarizing opinions the designer has drawn. Keep on keepin’ on, Slimane.

Model Laura Wells and former The Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester were at war earlier this week over the use of the “plus-size” label in the modelling industry, and now that another model, Melbourne-based Stefania Ferrario, has chimed in on the topic, we think we could have some kind of inspirational body-image movement on our hands.

It all started when Ajay posted a stomach-baring pic of Laura in The Upside’s latest campaign to Instagram on Sunday, slamming the media, and this article in particular, for describing her as plus-size. “How the FUK can this woman be considered plus size?” She asked. (more…)

While much of the fashion industry struggles with diversity on its runways, FTL Moda completely embraced it. The label showed its Fall 2015 collection this weekend, tapping the talents of a crop of disabled models to take a turn in their wares. Wheelchair-bound beauties, amputees, people on crutches and the able-bodied alike stormed the catwalk. 

The show was done in collaboration with Italy’s Fondazione vertical, an organization that researches spinal chord injuries. All the models looked downright fierce in their looks. It’s easy to forget that there are other levels of diversity, especially in an industry that is so plagued in general by a lack of racial diversity. But it is not just people of color who are underrepresented on the runways. Jack Eyers, one of the models in the show became the first male amputee to walk the runway. There are millions of people in the world who love fashion and are disabled – shouldn’t they be represented too?

“It is a very significant moment in my fashion career,” show producer Ilaria Niccolini said. “This opportunity to finally open the most recognized runways in the world to these beautiful talents, ready to show that disability is very often just a mental state by performing on the runway next  to some of the best models on the scene.”
