Jennifer Lopez Fails to Impress on InStyle’s ‘Dark and Moody’ February Cover (Forum Buzz)

It’s official: InStyle‘s redesign is here to stay as the magazine releases yet another cover featuring its revamped masthead. Jennifer Lopez is unveiled as InStyle‘s February 2016 cover star, replacing Viola Davis‘ joyful cover at the newsstand this month. In total contrast, Jennifer goes for a more somber and sultry mood as she gazes down the lens of photographer Greg Kadel. The singer-slash-actress wears an Acne Studios sweater teamed with a Calvin Klein skirt on the cover, styled by Melissa Rubini.

The cover, however, raised a lot of questions with our forum members. “I think Jennifer is truly beautiful but that image doesn’t do much for me at all. It also does look very Glamour!” criticized honeycombchild straight away.

“Wow, what a Glamour cover!” agreed MON. (more…)

Even Naomi Campbell Can’t Pull Off The Pink Wig and Garish Makeup on Vogue Portugal’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Major snaps for Vogue Portugal this month, having just dropped an original cover shoot featuring none other than modeling sensation Naomi Campbell. An original cover story marks a change for the Portuguese edition of Vogue since it regularly delivers reprints (even though the mag often still nails it). Going all out and tapping photographer An Le, the Brit beauty looks fierce in dramatic makeup, complemented by a hot pink wig for the eye-catching shot.

Was the cover enough to impress our feisty forum members, though? “I get that Naomi’s face is mangled now and not that easy to shoot. But my god, this woman defined an industry so please please please Fabien [Baron] and his team work with her — and not these lesser knowns that turn her into some wax figure,” slammed Phuel.

“This would have been a great Interview Germany cover! But for Vogue, the hair is just ridiculous,” justaguy mocked. (more…)

Watch: Beyoncé Joins Channing Tatum for an Epic ‘Lip Sync Battle’

Whether you were Team Channing or Team Jenna last night, you have to admit the biggest win of all was having Beyoncé appear on Lip Sync Battle as a surprise guest. The superstar strutted onto the stage during Channing Tatum’s performance of “Run The World: Girls” to thunderous applause. As if that wasn’t grand enough, there was a magical moment when Channing and Beyonce took turns whipping their hair back and forth at each other. Channing got so excited he jumped up and down flailing his arms, proving that Beyonce can even turn a hunky actor into a starstruck fan.

The all-Tatum episode was full of exciting moments like Jenna writhing around stage and giving Channing a lapdance to Ginuwine’s Pony. She expertly channeled her husband’s character in Magic Mike even down to his famous abs (she had a six-pack painted on her stomach). Jenna let host LL Cool J know such lap dances are a regular occurrence in the Tatum household. Host Chrissy Teigen laughed hysterically as Channing twirled under fake snow to Let It Go from Frozen, winning the award for the most muscular Elsa of all time. Their lip sync performances were both so epic the show ultimately didn’t declare a winner. 

Needless to say, we’ll be watching these videos on repeat all day long — and secretly hoping Beyoncé finds a spot for Channing on her next world tour. Watch a recap of last night’s hilarious episode of Lip Sync Battle above.
