Is Vogue Paris Serious With This Edie Campbell Cover? (Forum Buzz)

After delivering a double issue to cover us over the holidays, Vogue Paris is finally back on our radar. The magazine has unveiled its February 2016 installment and Brit model Edie Campbell is Emmanuelle Alt‘s cover girl of choice to kick off the year. Since having already appeared inside the pages of French Vogue on a number of occasions, our forums guessed it was only a matter of time before she snagged the front cover. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Edie wears a suede Prada coat in the image styled by Emmanuelle herself, as she playfully bites on her thumb.

Raf Simons’ Final Christian Dior Campaign Fails to Impress Our Forums (Forum Buzz)

We started to notice a slight shift in Christian Dior‘s campaigns ever since the announcement of Raf Simons’ departure with the unveiling of the brand’s Fall 2015 eyewear campaign. But the shift has never been more apparent than after the release of the designer’s final campaign for the French fashion house. Out is photographer Willy Vanderperre in favor of the more subdued Patrick Demarchelier, who captured models Sofia Mechetner, Roos Abels, Staz Lindes, Maartje Verhoef, Grace Hartzel and Binx Walton in a classic and simple studio setting, with styling from Carine Roitfeld.

Members of our forums were left divided in their opinions. “I think Patrick is a nice option during this transitioning time. But as much as I was bored with Willy’s style for Dior, at least it was worthy of discussion, this is so safe, it borders on bland and boring IMO,” voiced kokobombon. (more…)

The reigning perception among people of color is that the fashion industry loves black culture, just not black people. It’s a harrowing thought and yet it rings true when designers embrace hairstyles made popular in the black community and style them on a cast of mostly white models. Such was the case in Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection. Models posed in sequin gowns and embellished leather jackets wearing bantu knots in their hair. (more…)

When Zoolander crashed the Valentino runway, we couldn’t help but get excited about the movie sequel hitting theaters on February 12. We chuckled when Zoolander showed up in Mario Testino’s towel series, raised an eyebrow when Justin Bieber joined the cast and laughed uncontrollably when Marc Jacobs recreated the iconic car wash scene. Then, the Zoolander 2 marketing machine went into overdrive. (more…)

Marie Claire Overstyles Chloë Grace Moretz for Its Messy February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have made no attempt to hide the fact that Marie Claire has become very hit and miss of late, after failing to deliver the goods with three different covers last month. Now with the unveiling of its February 2016 offering, the title unfortunately continues its descent into mediocrity. Chloë Grace Moretz stars on the cover shot by Tesh, striking an unflattering pose while wearing a rather unforgiving and hideous Gucci outfit.

The cover did not go unnoticed by our feisty forum members. “The styling just overwhelms the whole cover IMO,” complained kokobombon within seconds of the cover coming to light.

“Everything looks wrong. I can’t,” added MON in a state of shock. (more…)
