Watch: Madeline Stuart Takes On 6 Disney Princesses In New Fashion Shoot

Down syndrome model Madeline Stuart is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand faces in the biz, landing a New York Fashion Week gig (she’s currently prepping for her second season, btw) and multiple campaigns and magazine covers since she stepped onto the scene last year. 

And while the Aussie teen has kicked some serious industry goals, her latest project definitely looks like the most fun yet. The ginger-haired beauty transforms into six disney princesses for a video shoot with BuzzFeed, including Tangled‘s Rapunzel, Aladdin‘s Jasmine, Frozen‘s Elsa, Mulan, Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle and The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel.

Unfortunately Madeline didn’t get made up as her favourite Disney princess, which is Anna from Frozen, according to her mum Rosanne Stuart, but that’s OK. Rosanne also told Cosmpolitan that she loved “being a warrior” in the form of Mulan and was thrilled to embody Ariel from The Little Mermaid, which were our favourite too. In fact, we have a burning desire to play dress ups this afternoon. Who’s in?

Watch the video for yourself above. We haven’t seen Madeline this excited since her NYFW debut!

Edie Campbell Recycles Her Newfound Signature Pose on UK Vogue’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

Edie Campbell is pretty hot right now, according to magazines worldwide that is. She’s featured on Vogue Paris‘ questionable February cover and now the Brit beauty has turned up on U.K. Vogue‘s March 2016 edition. Shot by Mario Testino, Edie’s welcomed back onto British Vogue‘s cover for a second time, photographed wearing an outfit by Gucci with styling from the magazine’s Lucinda Chambers. With a similar pose to her recent French Vogue cover, our forum members threw shade straight away.

Our eagle-eyed members noticed the similar pose immediately. “Well, almost the same (pose) as her Vogue Paris cover, how weird. This one is softer. I’m done with all those Gucci outfits everywhere…” said a disapproving Nymphaea.

“I want to like it, but there’s something wrong with it without a doubt. It somehow looks like a Tatler cover. That pose must be her new signature cause there’s no way VP and VUK talked about using that same pose. And the pink font below blending… No,” heckled MON. (more…)

Cindy Crawford Has Officially Retired From Modeling at Age 50

Legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford may have walked her last runway and posed for her last photo shoot. After decades in the modeling industry, Crawford announced that she is officially retiring.

One of the most iconic supermodels of her generation with a look that epitomized 90s style, Crawford enjoyed an illustrious career that spanned 30 years. In 1995, she was named the highest-earning model in the world by Forbes.

On the eve of her 50th birthday, she told United Airlines’s Rhapsody Magazine she’s ready to start a new chapter in life. “I’m sure I’ll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore,” she said. “And that’s OK. I’ve done it. I’ve worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do? I can’t keep reinventing myself. I shouldn’t have to keep proving myself. I don’t want to.”

What’s next for Crawford? She’ll most likely continue to promote her book Becoming which chronicles her time in the fashion industry, and manage her daughter’s modeling career.

At least with Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video and Balmain’s Spring 2016 campaign, she can say she went out with a bang.

Still from

Still from Hymn for the Weekend Video

The Internet let out a collective gasp when stills emerged from Coldplay’s new video for “Hymn for the Weekend” with Beyoncé. Most were mesmerized by the pop star’s smoky eyeshadow, gold lipstick and lighter blonde hair set against a floral background. But others took issue with the video’s blatant erasure of Indian culture.

Set in Mumbai, the Hymn for the Weekend video features fire breathers, holy men, temples, children playing Holi and spiritual shamans. Beyoncé stars as a Bollywood actress replete with a sari and henna, and Chris Martin sings while surrounded by Mumbai locals. After the video’s debut, a debate ensued about cultural appropriation. (more…)

Nicole Kidman Brings the Drama for UK Harper’s Bazaar (Forum Buzz)

The March issues are slowly starting to trickle out and U.K. Harper’s Bazaar‘s offering is one of the latest to drop. We took an exclusive first look at the cover for subscribers before the weekend featuring Nicole Kidman shot by Norman Jean Roy. Bazaar took advantage of the Aussie beauty’s stay on British shores performing on the West End stage in London. The actress was photographed in a show-stopping Marchesa gown on the subscriber’s cover (pictured below), while on the regular newsstand cover, Nicole looks regal in Alexander McQueen.

Members of our forums fell in love. “STUNNING, Jesus lord this is heaven, classic,” declared madzedre.

“Absolutely wonderful subscriber’s cover, with the crows, the sense of cold and the fading light, it’s like a scene from a gothic drama. What is she looking at? What is she waiting for? Where do those steps lead to?” asked tigerrouge, completely wrapped up in the cover. (more…)
