Victoria Beckham Makes for a Random Cover Choice on Vogue Germany (Forum Buzz)

We usually know who’s about to surface on our favorite fashion mags, but Vogue Germany caught us off guard this month. Shying away from models in an unexpected yet welcomed twist, Victoria Beckham poses for the magazine’s November edition. Unveiled just before the weekend, Victoria was captured by photographer Boo George appearing as stylish as ever, wearing one of her own designs (natch).

Forum members were quick to express their mixed feelings toward the cover. “Elegant and fresh, lovely cover. Although the angle makes her a bit wide/massive in the bust area and also a big ‘chic’ on it doesn’t help it one bit, just the opposite,” hailed an unimpressed Nymphaea.

“She does nothing for me on fashion covers. And I don’t really care about her life as a designer, singer, wife or whatever. At least she could have posed with Brooklyn so there was something interesting to see,” laughed Creative.

Oxymore wasn’t feeling 100 percent positive either, adding, “I like the colors but I find it kind of random having her on the cover.”

“Random but this is lovely! They should seriously change their layout,” suggested MON.

Also not a fan of the design was Nomar: “Goodness, all the font is horrible and I don’t get the random choice of orange. It looks very amateur and ruined what could have been a decent cover.”

“I have to say that it’s a nice picture of her but she has so many Vogue covers recently, Vogue Germany could have chosen someone more original. It does not look like a November cover for me,” criticized dcmaike.

The cover may not be ticking everyone’s boxes, but Victoria’s editorial is a must-see. Check it out and drop us a comment here.

If you’re constantly scoping out designer resale stores for fashionable vintage finds, it should come as no surprise that French labels Louis Vuitton and Hermès take the top two spots when it comes to luxury secondhand sales.

A study conducted by Exane BNP Paribas and secondhand online retailer Instant Luxe proved that “Louis Vuitton has extended its volume lead in both handbags and small leather goods in the first half of 2015, while Hermès heads the list in terms of average price increases.” WWD reports that “In the small leather goods category, Louis Vuitton dominates with a five-time advantage over Hermès.”

Hermès has also had a 23.6 percent spike on handbag prices in the first half of 2015, compared to this time last year. Researchers noted the increase was due to the recent revival of the Kelly bag, one of the world’s most luxurious handbags originally made famous by Grace Kelly.

Facebook Is Launching a New Shopping Feature

Facebook shop feature

With Instagram launching a “shop now” platform, it was only a matter of time before Facebook followed suit. The social media behemoth has announced its goal to exist as a top shopping destination. 

What can we expect? First up, a “Shopping” bookmark. It will fall under the “More” tab and will consist of products that are based on a user’s previously “liked” pages. WWD reports that “the products on the Shopping bookmark will be culled from the businesses that have begun testing the Shop section on individual pages, starting with apparel and accessories. The difference is that all the products will appear in one place.” In other words, major shopping convenience. 

The second shopping feature is Canvas, an “immersive” ad format that is currently being tested. Think a full-screen shopping window in which you’re able to skim through and pick colors, sizes, styles and so on before visiting the retailer’s actual website. Michael Kors and Mr Porter have already begun testing the platform and Target will join forces today. 

Sure, this sounds like an added convenience for Facebook users and an enhanced way for retailers to engage customers. It’s also one more way for Facebook to generate revenue. “The more services Facebook is successfully able to offer consumers via their mobile app, the bigger the role they’ll play in consumers’ everyday lives,” said eMarketer senior analyst Catherine Boyle, “which leads to more revenue-generating opportunities for Facebook in the long-term.”
