Lisa Hyde’s The Bachelor S3, Ep 7 Low-Down: ‘I’ve Cracked The Bachelor Code’

There has been so much talk in the media regarding The Bachelor this week, all around whether or not the show is just a hoax. If I received a dollar for every interview where I was asked if Heather is a paid actress or if Sarah left her boyfriend for the show, let’s just say I would be rich!

Moving forward, Emily finally got the single date she was waiting for and by the expression on her face, it looks like she doesn’t give a shit — well that is what the other ladies think anyway!

I see Emily as a little more reserved, perhaps more mature than the others. I kind of like how she doesn’t go completely gaga over Sam, as it actually comes across as more genuine. (more…)

Lady Gaga’s Cover for CR Fashion Book Leaves Many Disappointed (Forum Buzz)

For this latest issue of CR Fashion Book, Carine Roitfeld tapped Bruce Weber to capture Lady Gaga, draped in lots and lots of tulle. The first cover shows the singer shrouded in white, her head peeking through what appears to be a hole in a tulle skirt. The other shows Gaga with runny mascara, messy hair, a rock band T-shirt, bustier and black tulle, as she intensely stares off into the distance. Our forum members were mostly displeased. Not just by the cover shots, but by the appearance of Gaga in the first place.

“This was the big surprise? So underwhelming,” mepps said. Benn98 couldn’t wrap his head around why Gaga nabbed the big feature, saying, “Surprising choice. The first cover is better than the second, but I’m so over Lady Gaga and she’s actually been keeping a low profile. Why not give the cover to Taraji?” Thatsfierce agreed with Benn98 on the Taraji sentiment: “Gaga is so irrelevant in this time. I don’t like. Taraji should be on the cover.”

“I love Carine to bits and I appreciate what she’s been trying to do with her magazine, but Lady Gaga? She couldn’t have picked someone more of non-factor if she tried,” arlekindearrabal wrote. Madzedre agreed, saying simply, “Her time is over.”

LastNight, however, had some insight into why Carine may have gone with Gaga this time around. “Surprised that people think Gaga is a strange choice for this, she’s friendly with Carine and Stephen Gan. Plus she’s had quite a big year: a jazz album and tour with Tony Bennett, a Grammy win, that amazing Oscars performance, her engagement and her upcoming role on American Horror Story – all stuff worthy of a cover story to me.”

Spike was simply over the entire debate, coming to Gaga’s defense. “As predicted, the reactions to Gaga are as laughable now as they were when they were all decrying how ‘irrelevant’ she was six or seven years ago, too. Clearly she’s just SO irrelevant that the people whose opinion actually effects anything – aka the editors, photographers, designers, creative directors, awards show organizers, music producers, television creators etc etc – still seek her out to work with. Honestly, I wish I could be that irrelevant.”

At Least SOMEONE Was Smart Enough to Put Kerry Washington on a September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Kerry Washington is the star of hit network television primetime show Scandal, an activist, a mother and also a style darling, so as the covers for the September issues trickled out, we couldn’t help but wonder where her face was amongst the several other celebrities covering big-name glossies. Well, now we have our answer. Self magazine tapped the actress for its latest issue and the forums seem to be pleased with the results.

Benn98 was quite taken aback by the stunning star’s shots. “I’m dying here, these shots are so hot!! I think this could possibly be her best magazine shoot yet; the smile, of course, looks awkward, but it’s still great,” he wrote. 

Nataliaaplle was just glad they were able to properly capture Washington’s exquisite beauty. “Finally they captured what she truly looks like. Love the cover and the photos inside.”

Inside, Washington poses on pilates barres, her slim, graceful body stretching, twisting and undulating into beautiful poses. Of course, the subject of Washington’s post-baby body came up (as it often does for actresses) and while she admits her physique isn’t what it used to be, she’s definitely not complaining. “A few weeks ago, my manager asked: ‘Do you feel like you’re back? I feel like you’re back.’ She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, ‘You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it’s not about going backward in life… I’ve been really focused on not being ‘back’ to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don’t want to be pre-miracle.”

Coming Soon: MasterCard Wants You to Use a Selfie to Pay for Mobile Purchases

MasterCard is making the case for more selfies with a new technology that could revolutionize the way we mobile shop. The credit card company is developing “Selfie Pay,” which is exactly what you think it is. If you make a purchase on your smartphone, the technology will allow you to take a selfie in order to verify your identity. Facial recognition software will size up your selfie against an image MasterCard will already have on file to be sure that you’re the one making the purchase.

[ See: The 18 Sexiest Celebrity Selfies ]

The technology is being tested with First Tech Credit Union employees with fake accounts and fake money, but if the method of payment winds up becoming a thing, we think it would make a great premise for a second edition of Kim Kardashian’s selfie book. Imagine – Kim’s payment selfie on one page, the next, the corresponding expensive things she bought with said selfie. You’re welcome in advance, Ms. Kardashian-West.

‘Marilyn of Today’ Kate Upton Stars in Inaugural CR Men’s Book

Carine Roitfeld is launching CR Men’s Book, the brother to her Fashion Book publication and we’re already excited for the big reveal. Buzzy male model Lucky Blue Smith was tapped to cover the inaugural issue, but a men’s magazine would be nothing without a little eye candy and Carine Roitfeld looked to none other than Kate Upton to fill that role.

 

A first look at @kateupton for our first CR Men’s Book! Find out why @carineroitfeld chose Kate on crfashionbook.com

A photo posted by CR Fashion Book (@crfashionbook) on

The voluptuous model appears in a spread where she poses with various men as “lovers, friends and partners.” Roitfeld says she chose Upton to “[represent] different types of beauty and the sexual fantasies of all men.” Sounds difficult to really showcase “different types” of beauty when you’re using the same person for each shot – especially when one can argue that person represents a specific type of beauty, one that is already pervasive in our society while others go overlooked. But we guess when you’re blonde, busty and working with Carine Roitfeld, anything is possible.

Roitfeld calls Upton the “Marilyn of today,” so it will be interesting to see how she will transform such a mainstream look into the “different types” of beauty she mentions. For now, we have a sneak peek of how Roitfeld will handle the model. CR Fashion Book posted a teaser image to Instagram in which we see a profile of Upton clad in a slip and a silky blouse with an olive green shirt tied around her waist. 

We can’t wait to see the spread in full.
