Before she was Orlando Bloom’s wife, a Victoria’s Secret angel, and an avid topless Instagrammer, Miranda Kerr was killing it in her homeland as a Bonds girl. Now the Australian underwear brand has lured back its most famed face for its latest campaign, dubbed The Classics, with Miranda at the forefront to celebrate Bonds’ 100th year.

Miranda jumped aboard the Bonds bandwagon way back in 2003, and here she’s joined by fresher famous faces who followed in her footsteps, including Sarah Stephens, Ruby Rose, Elyse Taylor, Rachel Taylor, Samara Weaving, Jack Vanderhart and Kelly Gale. (more…)

What About This Jacket Screams ‘Cholo’ to Laveer’s Designers?

We don’t know what it is about cholo culture that has so captured the fascination of the fashion set, but it’s clear that designers might be just a little bit obsessed. So much so that they’re willing to slap the name cholo on just about anything to make it sound cool. Case in point: this tailored jacket from Laveer. 

A description on Shopbop for the army green blazer with orange piping and a single button at the neck includes the words “Cholo Jacket,” which at first had us scratching our heads. What about a tailored blazer would make anyone think of a cholo as opposed to, we don’t know, a prep school student? And there it was, the answer, sitting right at the model’s clavicle: the lone button at the top of the jacket.

The quintessential cholo look – a shirt fastened at the collar, leaving the rest of the buttons unfettered and the shirt to billow out freely – must have been what inspired this name. But besides the single button at the top, there is nothing about this blazer that particularly screams cholo to us. The jacket gives us more of an “Auntie’s trying out a new silhouette” vibe than a chola one. 

But hey, if you’re going to reach when it comes to a product description, might as well reach for the stars.

Sasha Luss Is Vogue China’s Ethereal May Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

After botching Freja Beha Erichsen‘s makeup on its atrocious April cover, Vogue China has moved swiftly on to the release of its May 2015 issue. We always applaud the Chinese edition of Vogue for using the best models in the business and the mag just tapped the current face of Christian Dior‘s cosmetics line for Summer 2015Sasha Luss. Shot by Boo George in the middle of the desert, the finished shot has a wonderful, natural look.

Forum member TREVOFASHIONISTO hit us off on a positive note, describing the cover as “beautiful.”

“Stunning cover, she looks flawless,” commented a delighted burbuja8910.

Also showing Vogue China some support was A.D.C.: “Can we kick British Vogue out of the big four club and replace it with the Chinese edition? I think this is the only edition I can genuinely be excited about seeing what’s inside.”

Benn98 agreed, posting, “This is indeed divine, love the colors. Weirdly enough I like the child pageant hair too. Something about this setting reminds me of Arizona’s cover, with the red hair. Very glad for Sasha!”

“I love how soft her face looks here. Sometimes it looks so edgy but she’s proven she can be a chameleon,” littlekiki noted, singing Sasha’s praises loud and clear.

“Stunning cover, Sasha also takes it beyond just looking beautiful, her expression is interesting in a menacing kind of way. I bet this will be even better in print. As always, super excited for the content,” enthused Miss Dalloway.

Sonam Kapoor Looks Like a Goddess on Vogue India’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue India often falls under our radar, but its April 2015 issue sure has our attention. As a title that prefers to give homegrown actresses the spotlight, Sonam Kapoor is welcomed back after fronting its cover several times previously. The 29-year-old beauty posed for Kristian Schuller wearing a jaw-dropping lilac dress. What more could we want?

A few of our forum members have taken a liking to Vogue India’s latest offering. “WOW I totally love it! She looks beautiful,” raved Oxymore within moments of the cover surfacing.

“She looks fantastic. The pose is very goddess-like and her face is very regal and sultry yet elegant. Great layout too, all the elements are here and it works well,” Bertrando3 approved.

GlamorousBoy gave props to Sonam’s modeling skills by crediting her “fantastic pose.”

“It’s stunning and visually striking! Beautiful girl as well. My thing with Vogue India is that it’s always the same girls?” asked MON, as things started to take a slight turn.

Sharing an identical view was A.D.C.: “Not bad for Vogue India but isn’t she on like every other month? It sure feels like it. I guess every edition has their Kate Moss of British Vogue.”

“This is actually quite striking, I imagine it will be hard to ignore on a newsstand. I like the coarse looking hair and kitschy tassel earrings. What’s going on with her eyebrows though? I knew Sonam would show up sooner or later, she’s much like Gisele for Vogue Brazil,” added Benn98.

Fantastic attempt, but enough with the recycled cover stars? Check out the accompanying cover story and drop us a comment here.

American Apparel Taps Band of Outsiders’ Joseph Pickman to Lead Menswear

American Apparel is looking to reinvent itself in its post-Dov Charney days, and is enlisting the help of Joseph Pickman to do it. The retailer just signed the former Band of Outsiders men’s design director to lead its menswear team into a new era.  

American Apparel’s menswear sector hasn’t been performing well and the brand is hoping that Pickman’s aesthetic will help get it back on track. According to WWD, Pickman plans to bring some of that Band of Outsiders vibe to the division. “We really, really work on the fit first — because the fit is what makes the customer feel good in the clothes — and then we look at fabrics,” Pickman explains. “What can we add to that assortment? Can we give them something a little more refined and still call it a basic?”

Now that Dov Charney’s officially out at the label, American Apparel has been steadily restructuring in order to make up for $300 million in losses over the past five years. Needless to say, we’ll be taking a closer look at the men’s section in American Apparel in the coming months. With Pickman on its team, American Apparel is sure to reestablish itself as an affordable, refined and cool label.

Finally, the Book of Yeezus, a Bible Kanye West Fans Can Get Behind

Some people believe the Bible is the word of God, but what is the word of a deity against that of a self-professed genius who believes his art is the most important thing to our society? Absolutely nothing, which is why we think Kanye West will be pleased to hear that a few Etsy shop owners are taking the words of the Bible and making them even doper, by replacing mentions of God with ‘Yeezus.’

Shop owners TheBookofYeezus say they put together the tome as a lighthearted reflection of modern times. “This book wasn’t made to make fun at Kanye, nor to represent an undying devotion for him. Book of Yeezus is simply an exposition. It’s adding an original twist to something ancient and important in order to capture new meaning,” they write explaining their product. “We are trying to cast our spotlight towards the way cultural icons have come to be the contemporary spiritual figures in our information culture.”

The tome will set you back $20, a trifle for the privilege of reading the Bible according to the Steve Jobs of deities, Kanye West.
