Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 for Adidas Looks Just Like…Yeezy Season 1

Much ado was made about Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 show and West delivered…more of the same for his second effort with Adidas for Spring 2016.

As expected, there were so many celebrities at the show that they spilled over into the second row. Of course, Kim and North West (who was in a far better mood than last time) were there along with a smattering of Kardashian-Jenners (Khloe, Kendall, Kourtney), Lorde, Debbie Harry, Riccardo Tisci, Anna Wintour, Michael Strahan, Tyga, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Drake, Fabolous, Common and more. Bella Hadid modeled alongside Kylie Jenner, who was again cast in the show.

Anna Kendrick and Gloria Steinem Have the Best Date Ever for Kate Spade

If you’ve ever been stood up for a date and felt bad about it, this episode of the Kate spade #Missadventure series will make you feel a lot better about it. The shoppable short, titled “The Best Company,” is a commentary on dining alone as a woman and how it’s nothing to be ashamed of – actually, it kind of rocks and can lead to some unexpected surprises. 

For the short, Anna Kendrick has a hilariously fabulous dinner – or, rather, dessert date with herself, her purse and her dog when she gets stood up for a date at the Russian Tea Room. After spending some time talking to herself and her pooch (as one does on a dessert date), she peeks over to the booth next to her, the booth she usually sits in, only to discover that her precious seat has been taken by none other than Gloria Steinem, who is also enjoying a drink solo.

Now, there ain’t nothing wrong with eating alone but as we know, two badass gals are better than one. Steinem joins Kendrick for her meal, proving that sometimes the best company is right under your nose – or just a table away.

Watch the video above.

Amazing: Lexi Boling Transforms into Carine Roitfeld for New Uniqlo Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that since Carine Roitfeld‘s departure from Vogue Paris back in 2010, the iconic French figure has been everywhere. From starting her own magazine to becoming the global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar and now, moving on to create her own clothing line for Japanese retailer Uniqlo. The campaign for her debut collection is currently being deliberated on our forums, after the editor-turned-designer tapped model Lexi Boling and legendary lensman Steven Meisel to produce the images.

Since such names were attached to the project, forum members couldn’t contain their excitement. “Love it, she looks like Carine which I imagine was the point,” acknowledged Benn98 the moment the images dropped.

“That’s so cool, I totally thought it was Carine in the first shot,” pointed out Wintergreen.

“This looks good! And I’m happy she’s doing a collaboration with Uniqlo, I’ve always loved her style, and the first looks don’t disappoint me. Can’t wait to see the rest of the collection!” praised a more than satisfied Zelda Zonk.

Also showing the images some love was Kite: “I love it when Carine styles models as herself… It’s like self obsession to the next level. These are great.”

Forum member kiseki was a fan too, adding, “Uniqlo, Lexi & Meisel, what is there not to like? I have faith for the rest of the campaign images.” (more…)

ELLE Takes a Risk with This October Cover Photo of Selena Gomez (Forum Buzz)

Our forums couldn’t hide their dismay over ELLE‘s lousy 30th anniversary issue for September 2015. Will the October cover make more of an impact? The American title just dropped its new edition featuring Selena Gomez wearing Miu Miu, shot by photographer Liz Collins. You have to appreciate a mainstream magazine like ELLE taking a major risk by choosing a cover photo with the subject staring off into the distance. Talk about living on the edge.

Has ELLE‘s creativity ultimately paid off, though? “I don’t think she has a strong profile for a cover,” slammed khyrk right away.

“Whose idea was it to shoot her in profile? Her face is too round,” added an unimpressed A.D.C.

Sharing the same sentiments was Benn98: “Absolutely agree! She doesn’t have the right face shape for this shot. Still, it’s a beautiful cover. Yet another stunning offering from Liz Collins.”

IndigoHomme soon chimed in, writing, “She looks beautiful, but that dress or top doesn’t work for me.”

Also disappointed was arlekinderrabal: “I love Liz Collins, and this seems like a decent enough shot. But I don’t get mainstream magazines getting top photographic talent and making them shoot/airbrushing their signature aesthetic away, so that it looks like every other cover on the newsstand.”

Just as things started to shape up for the better, AbbeyRoad hailed, “Wow I love this. I think she is really pretty and the cover is perfect.”

“It’s a nice surprise. I excpected something bad with Selena but this picture is really beautiful!” echoed a pleasantly surprised narcyza.
