Is Pubic Cleavage Now a Red Carpet Trend, Thanks to Kendall Jenner?

Kendall Jenner's recent appearance in a Fausto Puglisi double-slit gown has heralded the emergence of a disturbing new trend: pubic cleavage. Or rather, "pevage" — which the New York Daily News claims is the "increasingly accepted term" for the area. 

"Like it or love it, you may be revealing your own pevage soon," says the publication, claiming that the pelvic area has supplanted both actual cleavage and sideboob as the red carpet's new 'it' private part. Thanks, but my pevage already gets exactly the right amount of attention, even in this pevage-concealing regime. 

Speaking of: I appreciate a good portmanteau but "pevage" sounds like a disorder and "pelvic cleavage" is a misnomer. If the word "cleave" refers to a split, then "cleavage" is the hollow. You can't indiscriminately apply the term to any vaguely titillating expanse of skin. There has to be clefting, or it's not cleavage

Suki Waterhouse Tries Her Hand at Fashion Design

British model, actress and Cara Delevingne's sidekick, Suki Waterhouse, has revealed she will design a collection for Italian shoe label Superga. Already the face of the sneaker brand, Waterhouse told British Vogue how she made the transition from model to designer for the three-style platform collection.

"I spent a lot of time putting paper over my laptop screen and tracing things for inspiration, that bit was tricky," she told British Vogue. "I was in Paris over that time, so ideas came from shop windows and my experience there. It was a really interesting process, I learnt a lot."

And if she's not busy modelling for Burberry or being cast in a movie like her upcoming role in the sci-fi sequel Insurgent, the 22-year-old hinted she could possibly delve into the design world again. "I loved doing it, so let's see what happens next."  If her covetable London-look is anything to go by, we'd say her collection for Superga launching in August, and any thereafter, will be worth jotting down in the diary.

Brooklyn Is One of America’s Most Popular Baby Names

Brooklyn! It's currently one of the world's most successful brands. For proof: Consider the fact that the once disparaged outer-borough has starred in its own Vogue spread and hosted two major runway shows. Brooklyn-themed restaurants are popping up all over the world (including on West Houston Street in Manhattan) and as The New York Times dubiously reported last year, stylish young Parisians (possibly) refer to cool things as being "très Brooklyn." 

No wonder Brooklyn is one of America's most popular baby names, as the Associated Press reports today:

"Over the past two decades, Brooklyn as a name for girls has surged from No. 912 to the top 30 in each of the last three years. Some credit soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, for naming their son Brooklyn. Some cite model and actress Brooklyn Decker. Others point to Girls and the many other TV shows and movies that tap into the borough’s gritty, cool vibe."

Whatever the case may be, New Yorkers are the only ones who aren't naming their kids Brooklyn: despite being the 28th most popular girls name nationwide, Brooklyn doesn't crack the Top 100 chart in the state of New York. As The New York Times noted in a post about the name's rising popularity last year, Brooklyn is especially popular "in some of the country’s least Brooklynian precincts" — states like Utah (#9), Tenessee (#14), Alabama (#8) and West Virginia (#11).

Kendall Jenner, Mariacarla Boscono and More Score Givenchy Fall 2014 Campaign

The first images of Givenchy's Fall 2014 campaign have leaked in our forums, and it looks like Riccardo Tisci & Co. is going with a gothic vibe for this season's ads, shot by Mert & Marcus. Posing alongside Givenchy darling Mariacarla Boscono is Julia NobisVeroniek Gielkens, Jamie Bochert, socialite Peter Brant and Alessio Pozzi. And who's that peeking out from the left side of the image? Oh, just Kendall Jenner, NBD, scoring her first major high-fashion ad campaign.

Jenner walked in the label's Fall 2014 show, rounding out the impressive season of catwalk appearances, having also twirled in the Marc Jacobs and Chanel shows. It looks like Riccardo Tisci loved her so much, that he decided to throw her in his latest set of ads. Though, it probably doesn't hurt that he's BFFs with Jenner's older sister, Kim Kardashian

These likely aren't the last images from the campaign. As tFS forum member miguelalmeida points out, "From what I'm seeing, every girl Riccardo posted on Instagram with the hashtag 'Givenchy Girl' or 'Givenchy Gang' (don't remember) is starring in the ad, there were at least 12/14 girls! So let's wait and see!"

As you can expect from this diverse casting, members of theFashionSpot are undecided about the campaign. "Very weird cast if you ask me…." wrote valliaddict.

"Weird cast indeed. I like Julia but I don't know what she's doing here? Not even going to mention about Kendall, but I'm not surprised she's here. I'm glad Veroniek is featured, she opened the show after all but I wish we would see her more in the picture. I'm excited to see more of this!" shared Valentine27.

TeeVanity was impressed Brant is part of the cast: "Wow, Stephanie Seymour's son Peter Brant is the leading male model. I really like this campaign."

Although mistress f was less than impressed over the casting and wrote, "Peter Brant and Kendall Jenner. Shame on you, Riccardo. Casting aside, I like the gothic vibe that comes across instantly. Other than that…"

"The group shot is interesting, my eyes went straight to MariaClara. So bored with the black and white images they always do though," enthused TheoG.

Guess Who Just Replaced Kate Moss as the Face of Stuart Weitzman? (Forum Buzz)

Gisele Bündchen is the new face of Stuart Weitzman. The Brazilian beauty replaces Kate Moss, who previously fronted the American footwear brand's Spring 2014 campaign (and many more before that). Gisele was photographed by Mario Testino posing in nothing but white pants and a pair of Weitzman's Fall 2014 black ankle boots. The image might already look familiar because Weitzman tends to stick to the same aesthetic for his campaigns. Yet even with the likes of Gisele reclining back across the shot, you cannot deny the main focus is on the shoes. Now that's advertising!

Members of our forums are head over heels for the new campaign. "Oh My God! Phenomenal! Finally Gisele, I was so tired of Kate Moss!" commented la veronika.

Forum member Elfinkova simply wrote, "Incredible."

"She looks a bit cross-eyed with this makeup…but she's truly sexy and doesn't need to pull silly faces to achieve a natural sex appeal!" shared KissMiss.

However, la veronika commented in the thread again and responded with, "Love the makeup, I don't think she looks cross-eyed and yes, with no particular facial expression, she oozes sexiness."

Keep a look out for the advertising campaign, which is slated to break in September inside international fashion publications. In the meantime, check out the thread and join the discussion here.

Olivier Theyskens Steps Down at Theory

After four years as artistic director of Theory, Olivier Theyskens is leaving his post to pursue other design opportunities. His last collection for the label will be Pre-Spring 2015.

Theyskens originally signed on to design the Theyskens' Theory capsule collection, which bowed Fall 2011. By the next season, Olivier had taken on the womens, accessories and mens collections. "Everything has a life cycle. Olivier has done great work at Theory, and I believe his appointment at the company and his creativity within the studio enhanced the brand and added a new dimension and new possibilities to the market segment," Theory CEO Andrew Rosen told WWD.  "With Olivier we saw that elevated design has a place in the contemporary universe."

For now, the Theory design team will take control of the house in Theyskens' absence. "It has been an amazing opportunity to work with Andrew and to benefit from his knowledge in this dynamic segment of fashion," Theyskens said. "I will always cherish our friendship."

While it's sad to hear that he's leaving Theory, we can't wait to see what Theyskens has planned for the future.
