Nicole Kidman Brings the Drama for UK Harper’s Bazaar (Forum Buzz)

The March issues are slowly starting to trickle out and U.K. Harper’s Bazaar‘s offering is one of the latest to drop. We took an exclusive first look at the cover for subscribers before the weekend featuring Nicole Kidman shot by Norman Jean Roy. Bazaar took advantage of the Aussie beauty’s stay on British shores performing on the West End stage in London. The actress was photographed in a show-stopping Marchesa gown on the subscriber’s cover (pictured below), while on the regular newsstand cover, Nicole looks regal in Alexander McQueen.

Members of our forums fell in love. “STUNNING, Jesus lord this is heaven, classic,” declared madzedre.

“Absolutely wonderful subscriber’s cover, with the crows, the sense of cold and the fading light, it’s like a scene from a gothic drama. What is she looking at? What is she waiting for? Where do those steps lead to?” asked tigerrouge, completely wrapped up in the cover. (more…)

Bella Hadid Serves Up Supermodel Realness on ELLE Brazil’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

The fashion industry has welcomed the Hadid sisters with open arms, dishing out to Gigi a healthy amount of Vogue covers and now it’s Bella‘s turn to shine. Not exactly a Vogue Italia cover like her older sister, but the 19-year-old Los Angeles native can now add a striking new cover of ELLE Brazil to her growing portfolio. The one time face of Balmain was photographed wearing Versace before the lens of Max Abadian and we’re pleasantly surprised with the captivating result.

Jessica Simpson’s retail empire continues to grow. The pop star launched activewear late last year and now she’s adding sneakers to her repertoire for Fall 2016. Her sneaker designs are just as young, trendy and feminine as her famous line of heels.

The designs blend fashion and function with lightweight mesh fabric and an EVA shock-absorbing footbed, both considered ideal for running. Available in modern neon, snakeskin and leopard prints, the prices will range from $69 to $89.

“Active has been such a huge part of my life,” the mogul told Footwear News. “To feel sexy while you work out, it’s the greatest thing I can give a woman.” As women who can’t wait to hit the treadmill in leopard print sneakers, we can’t thank her enough.

Rita Ora Flashes Her Breasts for Terry Richardson on Lui’s Abysmal February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums were still pretty content flicking through their copies of Lui magazine’s sensational double holiday edition until the title dropped a bombshell by unveiling its latest issue. To kick off 2016, Lui has lost sight of fashionable, tasteful and seductive cover images and produced a cheap-looking cover for February. Following in the footsteps of Rihanna, British singer Rita Ora flashes her bare breasts for photographer Terry Richardson, leaving us with a sour taste.


Dès demain, @ritaora dans un kiosque près de chez vous… Et beaucoup d’autres surprises !

We were left speechless in the worst possible way. “OMG. Terry, Rita, boobs… could this be any tackier? NO,” exclaimed a horrified anlabe32 within seconds of the cover dropping.

“Seriously? You know better, Lui. Gross,” an unimpressed MulletProof condemned. (more…)
