Christian Dior’s Eyewear Campaign Appears to Forecast the Future (Forum Buzz)

Raf Simons hasn’t even officially exited 30 Avenue Montaigne yet and we’re already seeing subtle changes to Christian Dior’s advertising concept. The brand’s eyewear campaign for Fall 2015 was shot by the provocative and the sometimes controversial photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Out is minimalist lensman Willy Vanderperre, in favor of a more alluring and colorful image with Texan beauty Vanessa Moody.

Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members were left bored by the outcome. “They are already making a transition after the recent news. I don’t know if the choice of photographer is an indication of the future creative direction, but M&M for Dior is so weird. Even more so, with such a boring result,” discredited Lola701 straight away.

“Boring and lifeless. I’m so glad that Raf is out!,” hailed narcyza with forum member Nomar echoing, “Boring and safe.”

Everyone else, however, liked the stark shot. “Ow, Mert & Marcus do Dior? I’m on board,” shared an interested Street a Licious.

Mepps certainly was a fan of the image, defending, “What do people expect from an eyewear ad? An attractive person wearing a pair of shades is never gonna be that interesting. This ad is perfectly fine, for its purpose.”

“I’m just happy to see a model. Even though Vanessa doesn’t really excite me, great for her, I guess,” congratulated simon.

“I think it’s a gorgeous image. The colors really speak to me and Vanessa has great lips,” pointed out as equally as content anlabe32.

Kylie Jenner Finally Explains Why She Got Lip Injections

We know that Kylie is “over” her lip injections and her mother was adamantly against them but it still remains a mystery why she got them in the first place. The reality star opened up to Elle Canada about her procedure, saying, “It was always an insecurity of mine and I did it strictly for me.”

She also reveals why she was so tight-lipped about it (pun intended): “When I got my lips done, I literally told no one! I didn’t tell my best friend or even the guy I liked at the time. I really thought it was no one’s business. My mom was super-against it, but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it. After I did them, I thought it was so obvious that I didn’t have to say anything. I never denied it because I always told my publicist ‘no lip questions,’ so no one ever asked me. I never said I got them done, but I never denied it either. But people thought I was such a liar!”

Rebel Wilson Slams the Kardashians: “Their Career Isn’t Based on Talent”

Don’t expect Rebel Wilson to send the Kardashians any samples from her new Torrid line. Though she doesn’t necessarily “hate them,” Rebel had some choice words for the Kardashian/Jenner clan in an interview on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show. She even revealed she once turned down the opportunity to work with them: “I got asked to present with Kendall and Kylie at the recent VMAs and I said no, I’d do it myself,” she said. “I think I was going to dress up as Kim Kardashian if I was going to do that.” Ouch.

When asked why she refused to even stand onstage with Kris Jenner’s offspring, Wilson highlighted Kim’s claim to fame: “I know they’re super popular, but I am all about personality and working hard to get where I am. I mean how Kim Kardashian got famous from the sex tape and I just went to acting school and worked really hard.” She added, “They seem a bit superficial and their career isn’t really based on talent.” Clearly, Wilson doesn’t view balancing a glass on your butt as talent.

Best or Worst Cover of 2015? Rooney Mara Stars on Interview’s November Issue (Forum Buzz)

Last month, Interview magazine successfully managed to gain our attention with its jaw-dropping Nicole Kidman cover. Now moving on to the release of the November 2015 edition and continuing with the black and white cover shots, Rooney Mara becomes the title’s new cover subject. The Carol and Pan actress meanders the streets of London wearing Prada with photographer Peter Lindbergh in the visually stimulating portrait that has our forums in a pickle.

Members of our forums quickly jumped into a debate. “Their best cover in a while…There’s a strength to the image despite it veering towards predictable Lindbergh fare, and I think a lot of it has to do with what she’s wearing,” admired Fiercification.

“Only a fantastic face like Rooney’s can pull off a raw cover shot like that,” added Marc10.

Sharing the same attitude toward the cover was MON: “I am really liking the soft direction that Interview is taking recently. So much better than their Klein features. Very raw. Very vulnerable. Focus on the beauty. Yes.”

Nomar was a fan, too, writing, “What a gorgeous cover.”

Not all of us were feeling it, though. “Horrible!! Possibly the worst cover I have seen from Interview, ever!” declared Miss Dalloway.

In agreement of how horrific the cover turned out was mepps. “This is their worst cover all year, and possibly last year. The pictures aren’t bad, but they are as dull and lifeless as Rooney Mara always is,” he replied.

“This girl has absolutely no expression in her face,” pointed out an underwhelmed honeycombchild.

Eek! Take a peek at Rooney’s cover story to solidify your own opinion and drop us a comment here.
