Sad news today in the world of skincare as dermatologist to the stars Dr. Fredric Brandt passed away this weekend at age 65 after fighting an unnamed illness, which some sources say was depression. The doctor is the man behind the smooth faces of Madonna and Stephanie Seymour, to name a few. Few details on his death are available at this time, but the doctor was reportedly found in his Coconut Grove, Florida home.

Brandt, who often tested skin treatments on himself, is noted as an early supporter of Botox and has championed fillers in lieu of going under the knife in order to get that youthful look. His own ageless face was a testament to his work and his extremely successful  dermatological practices located in New York and Florida. He also released his own extensive line of skincare products, which includes his Needles No More wrinkle relaxer.

Brandt’s name recently cropped up in pop culture after a plastic surgeon character in the new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidtplayed by Martin Short, was said to have born a strong likeness to the doctor. Sources say Brandt was none too pleased with the representation, which admittedly looked almost exactly like Brandt himself. 

A year ago, Brandt told The New York Times that his goal with his patients was “to keep people working and feeling vital and good about themselves.” No doubt he managed to pass this on to his clientele.

Anja Rubik Thinks Modeling Is a Feminist Job

Some people would be loath to equate modeling with feminism. After all, the images we see in magazines and on billboards so often create unrealistic beauty standards for women, which many would argue is directly in opposition to what feminism is all about. But model Anja Rubik doesn’t see it that way. In fact, she finds modeling rather empowering.

“I consider modeling to be a feminist job. It’s an incredible job; it’s one of the ones where women get paid more than men,” Rubik told The Cut. “If you’re good at your job, you get to be very creative and it opens very many doors, like I did with my magazine, 25, and perfumes. You get quite a bit of a following and an impact on young women and girls. You can do something very positive with that. Nowadays, it’s not as glamorous as people think. But it can open your mind to many, many things.”

It’s true that modeling is one of the few professions where women get paid more than men. And if a woman feels empowered in her work and what she does, isn’t that what feminism is all about?

It wasn’t an April Fools’ Day joke, but it sure sounded like one: The self-proclaimed “fashion vampire” Karl Lagerfeld touched down in Toronto for the very first time on Wednesday. It wasn’t for the city’s World MasterCard Fashion Week (which ended just the week before), but instead to fête his design collaboration with Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos.

The party was hosted by Peter Freed, president of Freed Developments, along with Jordan Dermer and Todd Cowan, managing partners of CD Capital Developments. Invited guests were welcomed into a glamorous venue complete with crystal chandeliers, Perrier-Jouët champagne and music courtesy of New York City model and DJ Leigh Lezark of The Misshapes. Press and fashion fans pored over the designer, scrambling to take selfies with him.

Kristen Stewart Proves She’s the Perfect Fit for Chanel (Forum Buzz)

Kristen Stewart certainly has become a favorite of Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. She’s already fronted the campaign for the iconic French fashion house’s Paris-Dallas collection, currently advertises Chanel’s coveted new handbag range alongside Vanessa Paradis and Alice Dellal, and now stars in the brand’s newly-released eyewear campaign for Spring 2015. Following in the footsteps of Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Laetitia Casta, K-Stew posed for Lagerfeld himself, sporting a cropped hairstyle while modeling an array of understated specs.

Our forum members were quick to share their opinions. “I’m tired of her,” proclaimed madzedre as the images started to drop earlier this week. “Me too,” agreed dcmaike. 

Later returning to the thread, madzedre wondered, “Where’s Vanessa Paradis? She shines on a Chanel ad.”

Saucer-like soon fired back, writing, “I’ll take Kristen over all the poor and desperate choices these other brands are making. Surprised this isn’t Kendall… I suppose a Chanel or Fendi campaign for her is probably around the corner.”

Urban Stylin shared the same sentiments: “Nice, I think she’s a good fit for Karl’s rich rock-chic aesthetic.”

“I really like it, the camera is a great prop,” admired kokobombon.
