We were still pretty content with admiring Chanel‘s fabulous Fall 2015 campaign with beauties Anna Ewers and Lindsey Wixson since we crowned it one of Chanel’s best campaigns in decades. Now, unveiled as prompt as ever, the Spring 2016 advertisement series is here for our pleasure with the French fashion house continuing to amaze. Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld (obv) and with styling from Carine Roitfeld, the team welcomes duo Mica Arganaraz and Lineisy Montero as their girls of the season, who both model the collection around various New York City locations.

Dakota Johnson (Mostly) Impresses on UK Vogue’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Last year wasn’t exactly British Vogue‘s finest, but after serving up Gigi Hadid last month for its January issue, the magazine continues to gather momentum by adding actress Dakota Johnson to its list of cover girls. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the Fifty Shades of Grey star looks fantastic shot on location in the streets of New York City as she rocks a dress from Celine on the cover.

As soon as the cover broke, our forums began to deliberate over U.K. Vogue‘s February edition. “Wow that hair… It’s like they were hiding her face. I’m sorry but this is just depressing. After having that Gigi cover in all smiles, you have Dakota who’s just as bland as Kristen Stewart. Everything here just screams autumn. This would have been better for July,” MON suggested.

“I’m not a fan of the flashy colors on their covers. It looks good in digital but in print it looks cheap. I don’t get why they are doing this. I wanted to buy Gigi’s cover because I liked it but in print it looks really bad because of the flashy orange,” shared Oxymore. (more…)

Eric Andre Starts #FreeThePenis Movement With Naked Instagram Photos

Instagram’s nude policy has its share of critics. The censorship police famously went to war with Rihanna after she posted her topless Liu Magazine shoot, even prompting the pop star to delete her account for a while.

That exchange sparked the #FreeTheNipple movement as women and men rallied for the chance to expose their nipples with abandon. Photos of topless men were ignored while nipple-bearing pics posted by Miley Cyrus, Chrissy Teigen and Scout Willis were immediately deleted. Sexist, much? (more…)

Lily-Rose Depp Plays the Sad Clown on LOVE Magazine’s Latest Cover (Forum Buzz)

She’s one of the coolest new kids on the block, having already done a campaign for Chanel and walked in the brand’s haute couture show back in July (not to mention being the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis). Therefore, it was only natural for LOVE to pick up Lily-Rose Depp as its latest cover star. The 16-year-old shines bright thanks to some garish makeup on the newly released preview for the title’s upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 edition. Shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre, the image leaves us a little lost for words.

Members of our forums were far from overjoyed with the result. “Dead eyes. Zero life,” slammed Frenchkiki immediately, setting the tone for comments to come.

“This is so creepy, she looks like a baby girl in those pageants… dead eyes and all. A JonBenét Ramsey look-alike or something,” added an equally horrified kokobombon. (more…)
