Today, in addition to a few other impressive updates to the Apple family – like the new gold MacBook – the tech giant unveiled more about the much-anticipated Apple Watch. Since first teasing it back in September, Apple seems to have been on a tour trying to beef up the watch’s street cred, particularly amongst the fashion set. After all, it may be a tech item, but the Apple Watch is still an accessory that has to be stylish. 

Apple also revealed that it’s chosen Christy Turlington to help promote the watch’s advanced fitness features. The supermodel actually used the watch to run a half marathon (a first for Apple) to benefit her Every Mother Counts organization and will continue to push the new tech item in a weekly blog that will focus on her preparation for the Virgin Money London Marathon. Of course, Turlington will be running the race with an Apple Watch around her wrist .

Pre-orders for the device start April 10. On that date, Apple will also make a few samples available in stores so that customers can try out the three watch collections. The Apple Sport options are priced between $349 and $399, the Apple Watch version ranges from $549 to $1,099, and the big kahuna, the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition starts at $10,000.

You’ll be able to get your hands (or wrist) on the device when it hits stores April 24 in the U.S., U.K., China, Japan, France, Canada, Germany, Australia and Hong Kong.

Rihanna’s Latest Cover Proves She Should Have Been a Fashion Model (Forum Buzz)

Rihanna has to be the easiest celebrity in the world to work with. She swam with sharks for Harper’s Bazaar‘s March cover shoot, went topless for Lui and adapts to any creative input that’s required once on set. This time around, the songstress turns heads on the Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar. Photographed by Chen Man, Rihanna sports a creation from Raf Simons‘ Spring 2015 Haute Couture collection for Christian Dior. Throw in some killer eyebrows, a captivating smoky eye teamed with a red lip and you have yourself a fabulous cover.

It should come as no surprise that our forum members are head over heels. “She is such a damn good model, someone said earlier that Rihanna needed to be more exclusive and stop appearing in so many random international magazines but I love it. This cover is beautiful!” complimented marsnoop2.

“She is such a great damn model I agree!!! She always looks so versatile and had she been [taller] she could have made a great couture/runway model because she has a great body and great face and knows how to transform herself on every single shoot. This is the Rihanna I love, when she looks very glamorous and high fashion, GORGEOUS!” raved Bertrando3.

Also showing the cover some love was simon: “Quite like it. I agree that she models well.”

Forum member tigerrouge was also full of enthusiasm. “I hope she doesn’t stop appearing in random magazines, because the results are better than a lot of models currently doing the rounds of the covers,” she shared.

“Jesus, this is breathtaking!! She does need to stop, but I’ll let this cover pass. I’m really loving the fresh direction which the Chinese Bazaar and Vogue are taking,” Benn98 added.

What Song Was Kanye West Dancing to During His Fondation Louis Vuitton Performance?

Kanye West‘s Paris Fashion Week is already far better than the couple’s last turn in the fashion capital for the Spring 2015 collections. Between hitting up shows and posing for photos with his wife and her new platinum ‘do (which will be featured in a yet-unnamed campaign), Kanye also booked a gig at the Fondation Louis Vuitton this weekend for a charity concert. 

The affair was very artsy and very Ye. The rapper reportedly requested that the security guards at the show refrain from blocking the screens around the stage so that the audience could get the full experience of the show. But possibly our favorite highlight has to be Yeezy’s little dance number, which still has us scratching our heads. Mostly because we’re not sure which song he’s dancing to exactly:

Kanye West: Truly a man who marches to the beat of his own drum. Whether we can hear those drums or not.

Lorde Shows off a New Beauty Look at Chloé Show

Last week, she was BFFs with Kanye and yesterday she traded her signature dark lips for a fresh-faced look. We’re talking about the always cool Lorde, who was spotted front row at Chloé during Paris Fashion Week yesterday with a beauty look that was the complete opposite of her usual hair and makeup. We are huge fans of her signature natural curls and goth-like dark lips, but there is something totally charming about seeing the singer soften up her look with shiny waves and a glowy complexion paired with pink lipstick. Talk about très chic! The singer, who has been enjoying Paris Fashion Week with her mom, took to Instagram to show off her look—and we are loving everything about it.

Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Suki Waterhouse Are UK Vogue’s New Cover Girls (Forum Buzz)

We’ve certainly witnessed our fair share of multi-girl covers this spring, and now U.K. Vogue carries on the theme. Vogue revealed its April installment over the weekend and, given the girls who stand before Mario Testino‘s lens on the cover image, it spread like wildfire across the forums. Georgia May Jagger, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse give us their best supermodel stares, wearing an array of embellished see-through gowns. Cara and Georgia have, of course, been previous cover stars for British Vogue, but this marks a first for Suki.

But our forum members couldn’t be more disinterested. “So basically [3] look-alike blondes. Meh,” HeatherAnne scolded within moments of the thread being active.

“No. Just… no,” added Marc10, suggesting he wasn’t an admirer of Vogue‘s efforts this time around, either. Creative used the word “disgusting” to describe the cover. Oh dear, this doesn’t sound too good for sales this month.

Also not showing support was A.D.C.: “Couldn’t they put Jourdan on the cover and replace one of the blondes? It would have shown continued support for her and it would have been awesome if she’d landed two covers so close together but I guess her cover was a one-time thing. I’m sure it’ll be another decade before a black model lands on one again. That Shulman! So progressive. Rolls eyes.”

Our discussion soon moved to the subject of diversity. “Oh fashion. Where Suki Waterhouse can land a cover for having just a Burberry campaign while Jourdan needs to slay every part of the industry and wait over 5 years to get one. Pays to be white, blonde, and nepotistic,” said Gabriel29, making a very valid point.

“This magazine needs some fresh ideas,” slammed an underwhelmed Nepenthes.

Renowned makeup brand Urban Decay is looking to contribute more to womankind besides its much-loved Naked eyeshadow palettes. The cosmetics giant is teaming up with Gwen Stefani to promote The Ultraviolet Edge, a global campaign that raises money for charities that empower women. Urban Decay is looking to amass three million dollars in the next five years to support these initiatives with hopes of donating $500,000 in the first year. 

Urban Decay is starting the fundraising with a new version of its popular Eyeshadow Primer Potion, releasing it in a limited-edition matte shade, Enigma, from which 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit charities like the Women’s Global Empowerment Fund

As for Gwen’s involvement, she was chosen to represent the brand because of her cool-girl image and dedication to making the world a better place for women. “We dig Gwen’s innate ability to set trends and defy expectations. She also shares our passion for empowering women and will help give this initiative the attention it deserves.”

You can support the cause by purchasing a tube of Enigma at the Urban Decay website.
