What Are These Antonio Berardi Pieces Doing at the Victoria’s Secret Show?

Two Antonio Berardi-esque pieces were spotted (by LanaLana and Clarissea in the forums) on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway; they are most likely not copycats but real Berardi designs, mixed in with Victoria's Secret lingerie. The sheer paneled black minidress above, modeled by Cara Delevingne, is identical to one which appeared on the British fashion designer's Spring 2010 runway show. And the bedazzled oxblood leggings below, worn at the taping by Devon Windsor, belong to Berardi's Spring 2012 collection. 

Victoria's Secret's longtime runway stylist, Sophia Neophitou, has also been consulting on the Antonio Berardi label for years — she was even listed as creative director at the Spring 2014 show. We've reached out to Neophitou to ask whether this is the first time she's placed Berardi pieces in the VS Fashion Show, and what the thinking is behind mixing designer pieces into the Victoria's Secret runway looks. We'll update when we hear back.

Alexander McQueen Collaborates with Artist Damien Hirst on an Exclusive Scarf Collection

If you’re a massive fan of the British label Alexander McQueen and also just so happen to love a good piece of fine art, then you’re going to love McQueen’s latest collaboration. Set to launch online and in selected stores on November 15, the label has teamed up with leading artist Damien Hirst.

The artist has played with the brand’s iconic skull motif and reworked it to create his own very much covetable patterns. Mixing his iconic butterfly and insect patterns within the prints, they are definitely eye catching pieces that’ll get snapped up straight away. Check out all the pieces in advance of the launch at alexandermcqueen.com.

In association with the launch, they’ve also shot a cool promotional video shot by fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo featuring faceless models draped in the new scarves.

More Proof That Miranda Kerr Photoshops Her Instagram Pictures?

Earlier this week, one of our Forum Buzz editors reported on the possibility that Miranda Kerr had airbrushed one of her own Instagram photos. Below, left, a picture Kerr posted just ahead of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show taping, with the caption: "Sending love and best wishes to the #vsangels from Japan xxx." And on the right, the original shot, which appeared in Vogue.

One user in the sometimes rowdy and always hilarious Livejournal community, Fashin, has tracked down more evidence of photo manipulation on Kerr's Instagram account. It's damning.

The two shots below (left, Instagram / right, a photo service) were taken from slightly different angles, but in Miranda's version, the giveaway isn't just her narrower waist, it's her weirdly distorted fingers.

A curved line in the otherwise rigid pattern of the carpet, which appears close to Kerr's body. Anyone who's ever used the Smudge tool in Photoshop knows how something like this could have happened…

Same effect as above here, but with the concave shape of the bookshelves in the background. (Yellow lines appear in original Fashin posts to illustrate the distortion.)

[Update: Over the weekend, Kerr posted a response to Instagram, denying accusations that she had airbrushed the original Victoria's Secret photo: "Hi guys, here is the original VS image! When I re-posted the photo this week to support the girls I screen grabbed it off the internet when I was working in Japan. I had no idea it was photoshopped. All good intentions- sorry for the confusion and congratulations to the girls for such a great show!"]

Arizona Muse Graces Vogue Australia’s December Cover (Forum Buzz)

Arizona Muse on the cover of Vogue Australia December 2013

2013 has been a fairly quiet year for model Arizona Muse, whose staggering amount of prestigious work in 2011 and 2012 was possibly record-breaking. The December 2013 cover of Australian Vogue is only her second Vogue cover this year after the one for Vogue China in March. It’s not unlikely the decreased workload in her case is voluntary, given that Muse has a highly remunerated Estée Lauder contract (and even has the latest fragrance, 'Modern Muse', named after her) and is the star of the Louis Vuitton 'L’Art En Voyage' films. Nonetheless, it is a welcome surprise to see her back on Vogue. In a dreamy image shot by Nathaniel Goldberg, Arizona is seen wearing a Prada Resort dress. TFS forum members agreed that this cover was a success.

“It's so nice to see models on covers again. Vogue Australia is doing a great job balancing their covers between models and celebrities, in my opinion. Even better that it's Arizona!” posted charlieandmarie

“I think this is a terrific cover, Arizona looks fantastic. The composition is perfection, love the text placement and the colours used. The whole cover just flows – love it,” vogue28 shared. 

The cover is definitely a massive upgrade from last month’s cover, and in my opinion it’s miles better than any other Vogue Australia cover this year (see every Vogue Australia 2013 cover here).

Forum member anlabe32 perfectly summed up my feelings about this cover. She wrote, “There are several Arizona covers that I truly love, but this one might be on top. It's absolutely gorgeous. The colors, the Prada, the hair, Arizona's face. What a great way to end the year, with one of the best covers of 2013 all around, if I may say so.”

Edita Vilkeviciute Looks Like a Goddess on Lui Magazine [NSFW] (Forum Buzz)

I will admit that I have quite a bit of a girl crush on Edita Vilkeviciute. The Lithuanian model embodies high fashion coolness and flawless beauty combined with more than just a dash of sexiness like no one else. It goes without saying that I am very pleased to see her on the cover of LUI, the recently resurrected French Men’s magazine that almost exclusively features all of our favorite high fashion models, rather than commercial or erotic models, in all of its editorials. “Hurricane Edita” is the simple tagline that appears next to Edita’s bare boobs on the cover. I’m not the only one who went into raptures about the cover. 

“Edita definitely is rockin' this cover with her incredible body!” posted justaguy on the tFS forums. 

Appreciation for Edita’s spectacular body also came from Starry who wrote, “Edita's body is so incredible! She looks divine! Can't wait to see her ed!”

“She truly is a goddess,” raved KateTheGreatest 

Oliverhm praised the publication itself. He posted, “LUI is just about the best new magazine I've seen in a long time.”

Kokurox was on the same page. “Interesting that an erotic magazine for men it's one of the most interesting fashion magazines published this year,” he wrote. 

For the cover and main editorial with Edita for this December/January issue, photographer Mikael Jansson was hired — further proof that the magazine relies on high fashion credibility. Other stories inside the magazines include Martha Hunt by Solve Sundsbo and Josephine Skriver & Marlon Teixeira by Tom Munro.

10 Outfits I Can’t Wait to Wear from the Victoria’s Secret Show

I know what you're thinking: Only ten? Yes. (My loved ones worry too.) But in the spirit of embracing a more ethical mode of consumption, I've been working hard to temper my wants and cultivate more mindfulness in my relationship to fashion. Why buy all fifty outfits from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, if I'll only wear the vast majority of them once? When you adopt the right mindset, it can actually be quite easy to harness your beastly desire. I am living proof. 

Without further ado, my Victoria's Secret Show 2013 ~*Must Haves*~ list.
