Mixed Reviews for Rebel Wilson’s ELLE UK cover (Forum Buzz)

ELLE Australia recently secured Rebel Wilson for its April issue and now, the British edition follows suit with the unveiling of its May 2015 installment. The Aussie actress, who picked up U.K. ELLE‘s Rising Star Award at the magazine’s self-titled ceremony back in February, stood before the lens of Doug Inglish. While we appreciate the fact that ELLE has delivered an unexpected and deserving cover subject this time around, we cannot help but feel the team behind the shoot could’ve achieved a whole lot more — considering it’s the magazine’s inaugural beauty issue.

Our forum members were sure to tell it like it is. “Could they hide her any more on that newsstand cover?! Might as well be Sia,” noted A.D.C.

“It sounds terrible but my instant reaction was ‘oh they cropped in’ rather than celebrating Rebel landing the cover,” Cosmic Voices said.

Sharing the same sentiments was HodanChloe, who raged, “A head-shot of course!”

Benn98 agreed: “Really glad Rebel is getting all this press and I actually like the newsstand cover. It’s got a softness and femininity which her latest Aussie ELLE lacked. That said, this cropping trend of fuller figure women must end. If a photographer cannot take a decent shot of these girls, then he shouldn’t be hired.”

“I love it. It looks old & new at the same time. Rebel looks amazing. This is gonna cause some controversy again for cropping her body off the cover,” noted WilliamsLe010919

MON was quick to show the cover some love and hailed: “This is fantastic!! I love it. Very beautiful and I love the hair effect.”

“I love the subscribers’ cover [pictured below] because they weren’t afraid to put a full body shot of a full figured woman. Kudos ELLE!” applauded [J.]Oliver.

Madonna Joins Jay Z and Other Artists to Promote Tidal — and Shows Off Her Unique Signing Technique

You would think with all the years of fame and notoriety she’s amassed, Madonna would have outgrown her attention-seeking ways, but this is Madonna we’re talking about. The singer showed up for Jay Z‘s press conference to promote his streaming music platform Tidal and, of course, the affair wasn’t complete without Madonna’s antics. 

Tidal is an artist-owned music platform that already-rich music stars are supporting in hopes that you will eschew your $9.99 Spotify account to pay up to double that to stream CD-quality music from Taylor Swift and others. Whether or not Tidal will be the game-changer Jay Z is hoping for remains to be seen, but if the music platform is beating its competitors in anything, it’s in awkward press conferences made more awkward by Madonna’s compulsion to be ~different~.

As Madonna signed the #TIDALforALL declaration during the event, she lifted her leg up and mounted the table because…well, because she’s Madonna and the rules of propriety don’t apply to her. 

It was a weird move, but we would expect no less from the material girl.

Trevor Noah’s Old Offensive Tweets Come Back to Haunt Him

Just as soon as he was announced as Jon Stewart’s successor for The Daily Show, some eagle-eyed tweeps did a little digging into Trevor Noah’s past tweets, because why not take advantage of a chance to drag someone through the social media mud just as he achieves success? To pass up an opportunity would simply be un-American.

Noah is being called out by the Twitterverse for a few jokes he made that people found to be anti-Semitic and sexist. Throughout the comedian’s timeline, which for some reason wasn’t preemptively scoured of any and all tweets that could be deemed offensive to somebody, are a few quips that left several people less than amused:

Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley Are Starting a Line Together

With last week’s announcement that Marc Jacobs would be absorbing his Marc by Marc brand into his main line, the question of what would become of the diffusion label’s creative director Katie Hillier and women’s design director Luella Bartley remained. Well, it looks like the pair will be pretty busy as they just announced that they’re teaming up to start their own label, aptly named Hillier Bartley.

The new luxury label will be hitting shelves sooner than you think – they’ve already got a collection due out for the Fall 2015 season. Bartley says the line is “a very personal project which Katie and I have been working on for years. It is a culmination of everything I have learnt as a designer and a woman and is purely and defiantly about the clothes and fabrics.” According to the designers, the line has a masculine charm, so it will be interesting to see what the label, which will include clothing, accessories and handbags, will offer next season.

As for their other gig, Hillier is expected to stay on with the Marc Jacobs label, though things seem to still be up in the air for Bartley.

Olivier Rousteing Checks His Reflection on Out Magazine’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

We aren’t amazed Olivier Rousteing is checking his reflection on the cover of Out magazine, after posting countless selfies with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Jourdan Dunn on his highly-followed Instagram account. It’s a rare occasion when Out makes an appearance on our forums, but with Rousteing on the front cover, members couldn’t resist starting a discussion. The Balmain creative director was photographed by Pierre et Gilles for the magazine’s May 2015 issue, captured in front of an ornate mirror, providing us a unique photo while showing off the 28-year-old’s chiseled features.

Forum members couldn’t wait to express their opinions. “Beautiful! He’s beautiful. The picture is so gaudy and glitzy just like the house he designs for. I really like this,” approved Khabeer.

“I’m so happy for the success and fame Olivier is attracting to himself and the Balmain brand. There must [have] been an enormous amount of pressure and high expectations for him to do well. Especially for the first man of mixed-raced (man of color) of such a prestigious brand such as Balmain,” added fashionlover2001.

Also an admirer was arlekindearabal: “Oh, he certainly has the face for a Pierre et Gilles homage. He’s so pretty.”

TeeVanity was full of appreciation, too. “This is incredible, lovely cover. Out magazine’s having great covers lately, wonderful Olivier is a part of that,” he noted.

Although, not everyone was buying it. “I hate the frame overdose. It’s such an eyesore. I know it was used to make the cover look rich and regal, but it ended up looking tacky. It’s like he’s in a high end circus. I also hate how they seemed to have played with the lights to contour and highlight parts of his face but the end result just made the cover look dark,” MON immediately disapproved.

“Oh God, I really loathe this age of the ‘star designer’. This guy is becoming as frequently photographed and insufferable as his BFF Kim K. Of course the cover is excessively tacky – all that gold?” Benn98 questioned.

Net-a-Porter and Yoox to Merge

There have been a lot of rumors as of late surrounding the fate of Net-a-Porter. Besides speculation that Amazon would be purchasing the e-tailer, it was reported that parent company Richemont had plans to merge it with Yoox. Now, Richemont has come forward to confirm that Yoox and Net-a-Porter will combine to form the Yoox Net-a-Porter Group.

Where Yoox and Net-a-Porter used to be rivals, now they will be working together to provide the world with luxury fashion accessed by a few simple clicks of the mouse. “We believe it is important to increase leadership and size to protect the uniqueness of the luxury industry,” Richemont Chairman Johann Rupert said. “The merger of the two leaders will further enhance an independent, neutral platform for a sophisticated clientele looking for luxury brands.”

Richemont is hoping that the pair, considered pioneers in the luxury retail game, can join forces and again shift the landscape. “Together, we plan to expand on our many combined successes and industry breadth to strengthen partnerships with the world’s leading luxury brands and harness a significant untapped growth potential,” Yoox founder Federico Marchetti said.
