Lucky FABB Conference Postponed Following Eva Chen Announcement

The drama over at Lucky continues. Last week, editor-in-chief Eva Chen announced that she was transitioning from the publication and now some more disappointing news from the shopping title. The biannual Lucky FABB conference has been canceled, a mere week before it was set to go down in New York City.

Lucky decided to postpone the event after Eva Chen revealed that she would be stepping down as editor-in-chief, sending an email informing ticket holders of the changes on April 30. “We are prioritizing what is best for the brand and have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Lucky Fabb conference,” the email states

Some speculate that low ticket sales may have also been a factor. A source sent us an email targeting past Lucky FABB attendees sent on April 28, just over a week before the conference, offering a 30% discount off the ticket price. The email also promised 50% off for referring a friend. But perhaps that was simply a special promotion for people who attended the conference before, not reflective of ticket sales.

The event, which cost between $250 and $600, was to feature such industry luminaries as Emily Weiss and keynote speaker Alexa Chung. Lucky assured ticket holders that they will be reimbursed and that they are planning to reschedule the event. Of course, this does little to appease the out-of-state attendees who booked plane tickets and hotels in order to attend the affair.

The Australian supermodel turned up to the 2015 Met Gala after-party, even though we didn’t see her on the event’s red carpet, rocking a leather-clad ensemble courtesy of Balmain.

She teamed the edgy mini with a pair of gold knee-high heels, which are quickly becoming her go-to shoe style, a black clutch and a choker-style necklace. (more…)

The court summary said that Gabi’s naked wander, which was documented on Sneaky magazine, lasted around ten minutes, during which time she entered a Hungry Jack’s and left “without purchasing anything”. (more…)

WATCH: See by Chloé Launches Its Fall 2015 Campaign with Women Cast from the Streets of Europe

See by Chloé is relaunching and to celebrate, the brand has rolled out a new Fall 2015 campaign video. The label traversed European cities – Paris, Copenhagen, London, Brussels, Berlin and Stockholm – to find a group of 20 women who embody the See by Chloé girl. 

In the video, each woman is asked to describe herself in one word. The women identify as energetic, natural, sentimental, curious, artistic, sarcastic, diverse (although only one woman in the entire video appears to be nonwhite and all look pretty slim) and more. All seem to represent creative director Clare Waight Keller’s vision of the See by Chloé woman: she’s wide-eyed with little fuss about her, but still effortlessly stylish and feminine. This is the first See by Chloé collection created under Keller, who enlisted Matteo Montanari to shoot portraits of each woman.

Watch the ladies describe themselves above and get a glimpse of the new See by Chloé.

Too Faced May Be up for Sale

Too Faced may soon be under new owners, according to WWD. The cosmetics label is reportedly up for sale and word is that Estée Lauder and a few other firms have their eye on the brand. 

The California-based company was started in 1998 by founders Jerrod Blandino (CCO) and Jeremy Johnson (CEO) and has been a favorite indie brand ever since. The cosmetics company has had quite a bit of cult success with items like its Chocolate Bar palette, considered by some beauty fans to be a “holy grail” product. Word is that the bids are ranging from $450 million to $500 million. 

A buyout could be really good for the brand, especially with the backing of a powerhouse like Estée Lauder, whose impressive roster of brands includes M.A.C., Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Bumble & Bumble, Le Labo, Tom Ford Beauty, Smashbox, Ojon and more. Too Faced has a strong social media following, boasting 1.7 million followers on Instagram and another 59.6 thousand on Twitter. Perhaps with a little Estée Lauder muscle, it can expand even further.

Model Kayla Scott Stars on Vogue Italia’s ‘Refreshing’ May 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

Since the start of 2015, the forums have been venting about how Vogue Italia‘s covers have been far too dark and depressing. For its latest release, however, the team opened up the windows, pulled back the blinds and ushered in some light. The May 2015 issue features Kayla Scott, who is relatively unknown to the majority of members, in a surprisingly breathtaking cover shot by Steven Meisel.

Our forum members were quick to engage in conversation. “This is what I love about Meisel. He was able to take a model who I never really understood, photograph her and totally change my mind. This is beautiful, it’s unexpected and refreshing. Great to see him inspiriting again,” enthused TheoG

“No idea who she is but I would like to know because she is gorgeous!” DutchHomme wondered.

Also full of admiration was A.D.C: “Let there be light! Finally a non-dark cover from Vogue Italia and it’s beautiful.”

In agreement was gazebo who was quick to reply, “Finally we get a light breezy springy cover from VI – just in time.”

“She looks stunning! I love to see a new unpredictable face on the cover,” added dcmaike.

Benn98 was in favor of the cover too. “I wouldn’t know this girl from a bar of soap, but I’m mad about this. Quite refreshing. And for once he’s exploring a theme which I can actually relate to. I particularly like the neutral colors, it’s not something we see everyday. Her pose is great too,” he enthused.
