Could Valentino’s Spring 2015 Ad Campaign Be the Best This Season? (Forum Buzz)

Valentino’s Spring 2015 campaign has surfaced on our forums and members are proclaiming it to be the best of the season. Models Maartje Verhoef, Grace Simmons, Hedvig Palm, Vanessa Moody and Clémentine Deraedt pose together for a series of dreamy images captured by Michal Pudelka. The girls appear in different scenarios, from floating in water to wandering along a calm beach for the Italian brand’s serene ads.

There’s nothing but love for the campaign inside the thread. “Interesting, a risk, innovative (in an age of look-alike ad campaigns). The brand has gotten saccharine sweet, it’s nice to see them drift toward the dark side,” complimented HeatherAnne.

“This looks really interesting and quite fresh!” added Nepenthes.

“Gorgeous! Easily the most interesting and exciting image I’ve seen in this dire campaign season. Possibly Vanessa Moody’s best shot so far, Hedvig looks good too…any chance we’ll see Aya Jones please? Not familiar with the photographer, must go and check him out!” Fiercification noted.

Also full of admiration was DutchHomme: “My favorite campaign of this season! Beautiful, interesting & spooky at the same time.”

Wolkfolk agreed and commented, “I never expected something like that from Valentino. There’s a certain Virgin Suicides feeling. It’s definitely one of the most captivating campaigns released so far. If not the most captivating.”

“Captivating and innovating are the words. I was bored by their latest campaigns but this one is looking so intriguing. Colors are incredibly beautiful. Can’t wait to see more!” shared an optimistic Valentine27.

Watch: This Throwback Video of Destiny’s Child Is Everything

For most of us, our teenage years were quite awkward. For Beyoncé Knowles? Well, let’s just say she had quite a different experience. A music video from the singer’s Destiny’s Child days has surfaced, one in which she is believed to be around 15 years old.

Bey and her cohorts are featured on a track by Lil’ O circa 1997 and if the video proves anything, it’s that even before she was allowed to wield a driver’s license, Beyoncé was totally aspirational and always had perfect hair. Joined by Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett, the foursome sing the hook on Lil’ O’s “Can’t Stop.”

It’s a blast from the past and is really making us rethink everything right now. Seriously, how is Bey and crew so poised and perfect? And how do they make such unfortunate throwback costumes look so cool? Sorcery, we tell you, it’s sorcery.

Watch Destiny’s Child do its thing in the video above.

We’re Digging Nadja Auermann on Vogue Ukraine’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Who says February covers have to be light and airy? Vogue Ukraine gives us something different for its latest issue and we admire the mag for it. Photographed by Arcin Sagdic, Nadja Auermann (who was just on the cover of Vogue Germany) poses in a dark environment wearing a black swimsuit with some red and pink lights overhead, making for an intriguing cover image. We’re loving Nadja’s hair styled into a shoulder-length blunt cut with a sweep of fringe — so 90s!

Forum members were quick to voice their opinions once the cover surfaced. “I really like it, something about it feels very Vogue Italia! Always a pleasure to see Nadja!” enthused Nepenthes.

“Lovely! Very Vogue Italia!! And the lighting reminds me of VI’s November issue!” responded MON.

In agreement was khyrk, who wrote, “Wow amazing! Now this is how Vogue Russia should be looking like.”

“I love it! Surprisingly so! That cover has a bit of an edge to it. I’m digging it!” fashionlover2001 complimented.

But not everyone was feeling it. “How can magazines manage to mess up covers when they have amazing models to work with? This cover is just awful! My excitement after seeing the thread title is completely gone… I am annoyed!” ranted KissMiss.

“What’s going on with her legs?” questioned inwhiterooms.

An overall positive response for Vogue Ukraine this month! Should the other editions of Vogue be taking note? Share your opinion inside the thread here.

‘SNL’ Expertly Spoofs Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Ads

Justin Bieber got the SNL treatment this weekend as the late-night sketch show did a parody of the singer’s racy Calvin Klein campaign. Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong played Justin and Lara Stone, respectively. 

The ad has Justin acting as a petulant child (so, not unlike how he usually behaves?) playing on a scooter, emerging from a pram, throwing a temper tantrum and running around like a toddler after eating a pack of M&M’S, showing off his tattoos all the while. Oh, and his wee-wee, just in case you forgot he’s an adult now and it’s legally OK for him to stuff his underwear with as many socks as he darn well pleases.

Watch the hilarious short above.

Maria Sharapova Sports Antonio Berardi in Melbourne

Maria Sharapova is a winner on the tennis court, but her fashion game is also proving to be strong. The famous grunter stepped out for Crown’s IMG@23 Tennis Players’ Party at Melbourne’s Crown Entertainment Complex on Sunday, January 18, sporting a cutesy frock by Antonio Berardi.

The piece featured a drifting-cloud print amongst finely pleated lines, with cap sleeves, and layered panels on the skirt for an element of structure. “Finally got to pull this creation out of my suitcase. Loved wearing this #antonioberardi dress tonight. It’s the perfect balance of sheer and pleats. @officialberardi,” she wrote to her Instagram.

She kept the styling simple, which wasn’t such a bad thing, by adding black pointed-toe heels, a hard-case clutch, and very minimal jewellery. This next-to-nothing accessorising sufficed, thanks to Maria’s statement red lip and ladylike waves.

A tanned Montana Cox took a feminine approach in this pastel-pink halter midi dress, complete with a tie-waist bow. She accessorised perfectly with a cream purse and two-strap heels, plus fine-silver jewellery, but the slicked-back hair and harsh makeup didn’t exactly complement the niceties of Monty’s outfit.
