Mario Testino Photographs Miranda Kerr for Vogue Japan’s Anniversary Issue (Forum Buzz)

The month of November marks a special occasion for Vogue Japan as the publication celebrates its 15th anniversary. The magazine tapped Miranda Kerr for the cover and commissioned Mario Testino to shoot a large portfolio featuring the Aussie model for a geisha-inspired shoot. The transformation of Miranda isn’t the only thing different as Vogue Japan’s signature white background is absent in favor of a blue/gray backdrop, taking the cover down a different route for the magazine’s celebratory issue.

Vogue Japan’s efforts apparently haven’t paid off, though. “I miss the white background. This looks like a diff magazine all over which isn’t that good,” noted MON, clearly not a fan of the dramatic change.

“Is there any chance this is a preview, not a real cover? Vogue Japan is not Vogue Japan without the white backdrop,” exclaimed Srdjan.

“Such a disaster. I wouldn’t blame Testino for it. It’s Kerr and the styling, which doesn’t fit her at all, that cause an eyesore,” added an underwhelmed Kanna.

GivenchyHomme shared the same sentiments and commented, “This looks like a cheap generic magazine. Everything is horrible, especially the model.”

Also not fond of the cover is blueorchid: “I always roll my eyes and think people are being overly-dramatic when they say this, but… this is one of the worst covers I have ever seen.”

“As cliche as it is, I can get past the geisha theme—barely. I think Gemma Ward would have been a much better fit. But either way, if they were going to do this kind of theme, they could have used a model who is actually Japanese,” suggested orchidee.

One of the worst covers ever? Ouch! See inside the thread for a few previews of Miranda’s cover story and join the discussion here.

David Beckham Is Serving Perplexed Side-Eye on ‘Another Man’

We’ll always welcome a dose of David Beckham and Another Man is looking to give us one. This month, the ex-soccer star and full-time hottie graces the cover photographed in black and white, serving up an ol’ piping plate of bewildered hotness.

Photographed by Collier Schorr and styled by Alister Mackie, the issue focuses on rule-breaking icons like Beckham, promising an “intimate” look at the hunky, fashionable dad’s life as a “global superstar,” written by Tim Blanks. Kate Moss is another icon tapped for the issue for a “Confessions of an Icon” story, which, if we know anything about Kate, will be nothing short of gripping. 

Another Man Issue 19 is due to hit newsstands September 25.

Well, look what the cat dragged in. Karl Lagerfeld‘s beloved fluff monster, Choupette, is the new muse for a capsule collection of feline-inspired accessories. Expect totes, scarves, shoes, leather goods and a couple ready-to-wear pieces, like a sock or a T-shirt, to be emblazoned with the feline’s comically angry cartoon likeness. 

This is the second accessories collection devoted to Lagerfeld’s mini me. Last year, the designer launched a black and white capsule featuring everything from knitted caps with cat ears to fingerless gloves with little whiskers.

The new range of Choupette accoutrements will fall under Lagerfeld’s signature label, and hit the sales floor in November.

Home & Away’s Demi Harman Looks Seriously Hot for IMZcr8 Shoot

We’ve watched Demi Harman play Home & Away teenager Sasha Bezmel for some years now, ingraining her character’s style in bandanas, bows and rockabilly-esque dresses and hairstyles. So when we saw her latest shoot with IMZcr8, we were pleasantly surprised at how well the 21-year-old dons a stripped-back and natural look.

The Brisbane-born beauty wears little to nothing for some of the shoot. Calvin Klein briefs with a white Gant singlet, and an open Levi’s Strauss & Co denim jacket over Bec & Bridge shorties are still tasteful with a black-and-white filter, a bare face and loose locks. (more…)
