The End of a Trend? These Dior Sandals Aren’t Just Ugly, They’re Abominable

Any trend with the word "ugly" in its name is probably going to have a short shelf life. Trends are by nature derivative and conformist, characteristics that don't translate well to ugly fashion. "Ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer," Miuccia Prada said last year, describing her approach to "ugly chic" design.

And although we enjoyed watching all the ugly shoes stomping down the Spring 2014 runways and loved the way the trend transformed for retail, we think this phenomenon might be on its last legs, so to speak.

At last night's Dior Cruise Collection, a couple pairs of bizarre fabric-wrapped open-toed sneaker-sandal thingies (above) briefly made an appearance, disrupting an otherwise fabulous parade of truly killer black booties (below). To call these shoes ugly is an understatement. It's more like, why Raf wwhhhhyyyy?

Ymre Stiekema Shows Off Her Summer Body on the Cover of Vogue Netherlands (Forum Buzz)

You had better be ready for summer, because if not, Ymre Stiekema is beating you to the punch. The Dutch beauty is on the cover of Vogue Netherlands' June issue flaunting her toned physique for readers to admire. Ymre is photographed by Nico wearing a swimsuit and a pair of Christian Dior heels (not exactly the most realistic rendition of beach attire).

"Happy for Ymre but looks more like Shape magazine," writes ash92.

He wasn't alone, Bertrando3 also thought the cover resembled a different publication: "Wowww indeed it looks fierce! Love it! But I have to agree it looks very Shape magazine lol."

Justaguy commented, "Ymre looks fantastic here as does the styling/backdrop, but doesn't work for me as a Vogue cover."

"I love the setting, but something is lame here. Ymre's best cover was/is the September issue of Vogue NL in 2012," wrote Srdjan.

HeatherAnne wasn't impressed: "Even Ymre can't save you this time Vogue Netherlands. Awkward to the max."

So, not exactly Ymre's finest Vogue cover but still looks good nonetheless. Check out the thread and join the discussion here.

Poppy Delevingne Bans Instagram at Her Wedding

If you thought you would be able to follow the glittering, star studded affair that Poppy Delevingne's wedding will no doubt be, think again. The normally snap-happy Instagram lover has banned everyone from uploading images of the day onto the social sharing site. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Poppy's older sister Chloe revealed, "Poppy and James want it to be private and no one can post any pictures," which leaves little room for manoeuvre on that front.

The 28-year-old and her long-term partner have instead opted to give image rights of the wedding to Net-a-Porter's print magazine Porter, after allegedly turning down glossy magazine Hello!. Porter, however, is not paying for the rights, but providing freebies to the guests instead. We can only dream as to what kind of goodie bag that will be, mind you, with the civil ceremony taking place in London and celebrations in Morocco, there will be no shortage of excitement anyway.

So while you may be missing the opportunity to take a peek at a drunken Cara Delevingne dancing with Sienna Miller, or even Poppy and new husband James' first dance, you will be able to see the whole thing in high resolution, flattering glory, without a grainy filter in sight. Which, although we love an Instagram shot or two, is pretty much the way most people would like to capture their wedding.

Luckily for us, Poppy did not ban the lead up to the wedding, giving us all a great insight into her fantastic first hen do seven months ago, which saw her dressed as True Romance's heroine Alabama in full sheer blue bra and animal print fur, partying with the likes of Alexa Chung, Harry Styles, Sienna Miller, Jaime Winstone and Georgia May Jagger.

Yesterday, Poppy celebrated her second honeymoon, courtesy of Chanel, with a spread so lavish she commented that she 'might turn into a macaroooooooon.' Something tells us, she is still going to look incredible on her wedding day.

Let's just hope Porter brings the wedding issue out super quickly!

This is What a Dior Ferry Looks Like (Bonus: Dior Brought Its Own Sailorboys Too)

Yesterday evening, Dior showed its Cruise Collection Brooklyn, at the Duggal Greenhouse Navy Yard space where Alexander Wang pseudo-scandalously showed his Fall 2014 collection earlier this year. To cut down on the grumbling we witnessed after Wang's show (fashion editors trying to leave the Navy Yard by car encountered massive gridlock) and play up the cruise-iness of the proceedings, Dior commissioned its own ferry to boat all guests over the East River from Manhattan and back. 

Is this the world's first-ever Dior ferry? Sure, why not:

And it came with its own Dior sailorboys, wearing matching outfits:

Work Out Your Body and Mind at the 2014 Lolë White Tour

Museums are calm and tranquil places, the type of atmosphere perfect for your afternoon yoga class, if that was ever an option. Luckily for us, Canadian lifestyle and activewear brand Lolë is making the very idea a reality by bringing its 2014 White Tour to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

Last year, the White tour was held at the city's Fort York National Historic Site, where two thousand people, all dressed in white, practiced for peace in the great outdoors. Now it’s coming to the ROM as part of a five-city tour that will also include Barcelona, New York, Montreal (the brand’s hometown) and Edmonton.

The large scale event that’s proven hugely popular with seasoned yogis and beginners alike, will kick off in Barcelona at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya on April 12. It will then proceed to Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts on May 8, New York’s Museum of Modern Art on May 22 and Toronto’s ROM on June 12, finally ending in Edmonton at a soon-to-be unveiled location.

The yoga sessions themselves will be set to live symphony music as participants practice their favourite yoga poses (ahem, happy baby) under the guidance of celebrated instructors while dressed all in white–a color symbolic of peace.

Tickets cost $25, but that includes the signature Lolë yoga mat, which participants can keep after this memorable experience. I personally think this is a pretty sweet deal, not only because entry into the ROM alone runs $16, but can you think of anything more unique than downward dog beneath a long necked sauropod skeleton? Exactly. Now go find that inner peace…
