Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone Are Document’s Spring Cover Girls (Forum Buzz)

More often than not, we’re too wrapped up in magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and ELLE that we forget there are other interesting titles available at the newsstand. This week, Document found itself the topic of discussion in our forums as the New York-based title unveiled double covers for its Spring 2015 issue via Hats off to the biannual magazine for scoring models Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone as cover girls. Daria was captured by Collier Schorr for the occasion, while Lara reclined back on a chair for Tyrone Lebon.

As you’d expect, one cover sticks out over the other. Or does it? “Is it me or does Daria look different?” questioned Oxymore immediately.

“Too much chest in Daria’s picture,” added madzedre, disappointed with the outcome.

DutchHomme wasn’t having any of it, either. “Daria looks uncomfortable. The cover would look better with some text on her chest. I like the cover with Daria the most BUT both covers are weak. Lara Stone is looking like a different person on that cover. Perhaps because the lack of Photoshop,” he shared.

Also underwhelmed and uninterested was Phuel: “They have two of the top women and this is the result…? I guess it’s meant to be ironic how amateur, how plain it is… Weak.”

“Daria again? Why does she get back to back covers? There are so many other girls. At least she doesn’t look as haggard and worn as she did last time. I’m going with Lara on this one. The minimal retouching does wonders for her,” Benn98 discredited.

Do you completely disagree? Be sure to add your own two cents here.

Georgia May Jagger, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse Wrote a Song Together

UK Vogue April 2015 Cara, Georgia & Suki Mario Testino


Music is truly universal, y’all. A genre of expression born out of the American south has inspired some of our leggy model friends from across the pond. Vogue UK cover girls Georgia May Jagger, Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne have gotten together to write a song – though we’re not sure if we’ll be hearing it anytime soon.

Jagger told Grazia that she and her supermodel sisters penned a country tune together while hanging out one night with Jagger’s music producer boyfriend Josh McLellan. “He helped make us a beat and we wrote the lyrics,” she said. “It’s about girls on the road without men, listening to the radio, that kind of thing. We’ve done a couple of songs.” Supermodels kicking around the country, jamming to bumpin’ tunes and feeling all warm and empowered on the inside? Sounds like an instant classic.

Jagger admits that she and her model homies have recorded other songs together, though the country tune in question only has one verse, so… we’re probably not going to be streaming it from Tidal in the near future.

UK Tabloids Are so Sorry for Running False Stories about Kate Moss

Some of the UK’s biggest news publications are begging for Kate Moss’ forgiveness after running false information about the model’s health. Of course we all know how juicy gossip stories about the rich and famous’ private exploits are journalistic gold for many publications, but sometimes the craziest stories, the ones that seem too good to be true are exactly just that. It’s a lesson Grazia, the Mail on Sunday and The Sun were reminded of after they published stories claiming that Moss had been whisked away in an ambulance following Mario Testino’s birthday party back in October, some insinuating that the incident was part of a grand cover-up to mask health concerns the model is dealing with. 

Since the story wound up being false, all three papers have published retractions, apologizing to Moss for any damage done to her name over the fabricated tales. “An article on March 8 said an ambulance was called when Kate Moss became ill at a late night party at the Chiltern Firehouse hotel in London last October,” the Mail published in its Clarifications and Retractions section. “We now accept that this incident did not occur and that no ambulance was called for her. We apologise to Miss Moss for any offence caused.”

We’re just mostly glad that Kate Moss is in good health.

J.Lo’s Versace Grammys Dress Inspired Google Image Search

Jennifer Lopez Versace Grammys

Next time you use Google to search for shirtless pictures of the Hemsworth brothers, just know that you should be thanking Jennifer Lopez and that infamous green Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.

Project Syndicate published a piece by one of Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, in which he recounts how founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin got the idea for Google’s image search after Jennifer Lopez wore that revealing frock all those years ago. Apparently, after the Grammys, search engine queries for the dress skyrocketed. People wanted to see J.Lo in the barely there look – and the look only, rather than having to skim over web pages with actual text to get to the good stuff. “At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen,” Schmidt writes. “But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: J.­Lo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”

So, it seems a combination of human laziness and celebrity exhibitionism are to credit for the fact that we can search for photos of Shiba Inu puppies in a snap. And you say celebrities never did anything for you. We should all be sending Ms. Lopez a fruit basket right now.

L’Oreal Paris Tops the List of Most Valuable Beauty Brands

Brand Finance has compiled a list of the 50 most valuable beauty brands, and L’Oreal Paris has come out on top.

The list was put together by multiplying the brand’s revenues with their “royalty rate,” and L’Oreal appeared to be the brand with the biggest bucks, boasting a valuation of $11.21 billion. L’Oreal actually wound up far outpacing the other brands on the list – Gilette came in at second place at $8.99 billion, followed by Dove, at 5.82 billion. 

L’Oreal Paris has been in the news quite a bit lately, having named their very first Asian-American ambassador, model Soo Joo Park, who called the appointment an “honor” in light of the beauty market’s shift to embracing multicultural beauty. “The world is getting smaller and the globalization of commerce is influencing industries like beauty and fashion,” she said. Perhaps this commitment to appealing to the beauty industry’s fastest-growing market might help in putting them even further ahead from their competitors over time.

Nivea ($5.32 billion), Chanel ($4.92 billion), Estée Lauder ($4.79 billion), Garnier ($4.63 billion), Olay ($3.99 billion) and Lancôme ($3.98 billion) rounded out the top of list.

Sofia Vergara Goes Glam for Vanity Fair’s ‘Fabulous’ May Cover (Forum Buzz)

We first assumed this particular shoot was meant for Vogue as discussion aroused inside our Cover Rumor Thread, but it turns out Sofia Vergara‘s shoot with Annie Leibovitz was for Vanity Fair — we should’ve known! Earlier today, the magazine dropped its May 2015 cover and to our excitement, the cover is stunning. Sofia is pictured looking as glamorous as ever wearing a sexy silk dress complemented by a white fur stole, while her luscious brunette locks cascade down one side of her bare shoulders. Not to mention how appreciative we are of the fact that Vanity Fair provided someone who’s alive and breathing on the cover.

Our forum members were quick to react. “I’m so Happy for her, She is Beauuuuuutiful,” exclaimed GlamVal, about to set the tone of more comments to come.

“Sofia is PERCHED! I love this! She looks good! Surprised she’s not on the cover of more magazines,” added Khabeer.

In agreement was MON: “What a fantastic cover! It’s sultry, seductive, sexy, and glamorous! This would have made a superb Vogue cover. Finally Annie got it right! I’m really happy that she’s getting the attention and recognition she deserves. Fabulous!”

Also showing much enthusiasm was RanThe, who declared, “I’m loving this cover. Sofia looks amazing and like herself. Because everyone knows Annie loves that Photoshop.”

“I like it, I like the cover, but some details are very bad, with respect to the Photoshop,” commented testinofan, suggesting extra airbrushing was necessary.

MON disagreed and fired back, “I love the fact that they kept those natural details of hers! Finally a magazine acknowledging the idea that it’s okay to have those flaws because either way, it doesn’t define your beauty. Those minor details do not take away the fact that she’s beautiful and it’s a beautiful cover.”

Add your own two cents inside our thread here. Vanity Fair‘s May 2015 issue is available tomorrow.
