Gisele Bündchen Lands Her Second Vogue Cover This Month (Forum Buzz)

Is February about to be the best month ever for Gisele Bündchen? We started the week off seeing Gisele on U.K. Vogue‘s March cover, and now Vogue China has released its latest installment featuring the Brazilian bombshell, also lensed by Mario Testino. The supermodel sports her trademark sun-kissed glow, wearing a colorful creation from Chanel’s Spring 2015 collection (Mrs. Brady is the face of both Chanel’s RTW mainline and No. 5 fragrance campaign this season).

But have our forum members had just about enough? “What did they do to her face?” asked iclawhands within moments of the cover surfacing.

“I don’t like it. Her face looks weird and the styling is too much,” added A.D.C., suggesting some airbrushing had taken place.

“I love Gisele but this styling is not working for me at all. The Photoshop on her eyes is terrible. How come Testino’s team did a great job at U.K. Vogue and then this?” kokobombon slammed.

Also not a fan was anlabe32: “Sick of her. She’s becoming as boring as Chanel itself.”

“The angle on her face is a bit unflattering, yet she still manages to draw you in. I bet this will look great in print, and I love the colors!” noted Miss Dalloway, shifting the mood of the thread.

“She is such an unstoppable force it’s ridiculous!” credited an impressed marsnoop2.

Forum member la veronika seemed pleased to see Gisele gain another cover. “Happy for another Vogue cover, regardless! Her Vogue cover total is more than impressive and what’s more impressive is that it keeps growing,” she admired.

Did Lucky Magazine Just Lay Off a Chunk of Its Editorial Staff?

We hear that things are getting pretty shaken up over at Lucky. Back in August, the magazine announced plans to launch Lucky Shops, an e-commerce venture in partnership with BeachMint. The new website, LuckyShops.com, is already live and should soon take the place of Luckymag.com. An email sent to Lucky‘s community says that come February 10, Luckymag.com will be no more.

When we first got news of the changes at the magazine, it was believed that much of the current Lucky staff would be keeping their jobs once the publication switched over to the new platform. But a few insiders tell us that is not the case. Sources say that the magazine is laying off about 10 people in several departments (features, fashion, beauty, photo), including high-level editorial staff. A grim reaping indeed.

In November, Lucky cut three members of its editorial staff; the accessories director, fashion features editor and special sections director.

We reached out to Lucky for comment, and will update as soon as we hear back with more information. 

UPDATE: Fashionista confirms that staff members including their Executive Fashion Director (Alexis Bryan Morgan), Production Director (Donna Sollecito), Senior Credits Editor (Joane Amay), a beauty assistant, photo assistant, fashion assistants and accessories assistants were laid off. Jean Godfrey June will take over as Editor-at-Large.

UPDATE 2: We’re hearing from inside sources that the cuts were more extensive than we thought. All the fashion, jewelry and accessories assistants except for two have been cut. Photo, Bookings and Special Projects editors are also being laid off.

Jeremy Scott Filmed a Documentary About His Life

What’s a year in the life of Jeremy Scott like? We’re about to find out. The designer announced this morning via Instagram that while he’s been designing collections for his label and Moschino, launching fragrances, putting together a book and creating Katy Perry’s Super Bowl outfits, he’s also been working on a documentary about his life.

 

A photo posted by Jeremy Scott (@itsjeremyscott) on

Today, the designer posted an image of himself to Instagram wearing one of those ubiquitous Moschino McDonald’s sweaters and holding a clapperboard to announce his latest project, which has been a year in the making. Scott says the film will hit theaters later this year. Sadly, those are all the details we have about the project, but it’s definitely topping our list of must-see films for 2015!

Robyn Lawley Makes History as First ‘Plus-Sized’ Model Featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue is usually a display of ultra-thin women in bikinis. But all that’s about to change, and we couldn’t be happier. Swimsuitsforall has taken out an ad in the publication starring Ashley Graham, plus-sized model and outspoken champion for body diversity. But she won’t be the only plus girl appearing in the annual issue.

Australian model Robyn Lawley has been tapped for the issue, making her the first plus-sized model (she’s a size 10) to grace its pages — in a bikini from her own line, no less. Robyn has been very outspoken in the past about how she’s not actually plus-sized. As she told Clique magazine, “You know, in the beginning I didn’t mind getting called it, I was like, ‘Yay! It’s fine!’ And it’s been a community that’s really represented me well and loved me and really helped me. But I’m not a plus-size person, and I’m a model. I don’t think I need that ‘plus-size’ in front of it.” Still, in the modeling world, she’s bigger than a “straight size” model, which in this topsy-turvy universe makes her plus-sized.

We seem to be in the middle of a plus revolution as more retailers expand stylish size options for larger women. Target just announced the launch of a new plus collection, so it is quite heartening to see Sports Illustrated attempt to throw some support behind the cause. While the move is revolutionary, we can’t help but wonder what would happen if the magazine featured an actual plus-sized woman in a bikini. But, baby steps — and if this is what baby steps look like, we can’t wait for SI to take a few more.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Is Coming

American menswear designers finally have a home court stage to show their collections. The CFDA has successfully organized a men’s fashion week to take place this summer in New York City. Previously, American menswear designers were forced to wait until September to show their collections after buyers had already put in orders or stage shows abroad. 

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is slated for July 13 to July 16 (just around Men’s Market Week) and will feature designers Rag & Bone, Public School, Timo Weiland, Patrik Ervell, Michael Kors and Duckie Brown, to name a few. Amazon, Shinola and DreamWorks are among the sponsors for the event which will take place at SoHo’s Skylight Clarkson Sq , a 60,000-square-foot space.

CFDA CEO Steven Kolb is hoping that the event grows in time. London Collections: Men has only been around for about two years and it’s proved to be quite a success. Hopefully, American designers will enjoy the same results. 

It looks like July is going to be even busier than we thought! We can’t wait to see what the fellas churn out now that they have their very own stage.
