Everyone’s favourite gap-toothed model, Jessica Hart, is GRITTYpretty‘s cover girl for Winter 2015, and the model has revealed her affection for esteemed designer Diane Von Furstenberg inside the beauty mag.
Jessica, who quickly shifted from grunge-chic to a lover of effortless sophistication, told the publication that she loves DVF designs and looks up to the designer herself.
It’s official: our forums are becoming increasingly bored with Edie Campbell, if their comments on the latest Hugo Boss Fall 2015 campaign are any indication. Jason Wu cast the British model alongside Clement Chabernaud in the moody ads photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. The images were shot amongst rooms constructed of dark grey felt — and you’ll either love it or loathe it.
Forum members laced straight into the campaign with jescajade almost falling asleep with the word “yawn.”
“I never disliked Edie. In fact, I liked her a lot a year ago. However, she’s starting to bore me. She’s outdated. Trite. Stale. A dynamic model would have made the boring clothes and setting come to life. I’m sure there was enough budget to hire Raquel Zimmermann,” hoped anlabe32.
“Agreed, a more dynamic model would’ve made this better. Amanda Murphy would’ve looked great. Still, this isn’t terrible,” responded littlekiki.
Benn98 wasn’t impressed either. “Edie isn’t a terrible model, but she just needs to take the quirk down a bit. Jason Wu needs to get his sh*t together because I’ve not seen a good campaign since he took control,” he complained.
Sharing the same attitude was Nomar: “In the first two pics I think there is way too much negative space it just looks odd. Edie is quickly becoming lackluster in my eyes and this campaign is easily forgettable – YAWN.”
“I absolutely hate the set,” noted Royal-Galliano.

Madame Carven, the French couturier whose namesake house is now under the design direction of Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud, died at the age of 105. Née Carmen de Tommaso, Carven enjoyed a long life and illustrious career, starting her line in 1945 to design beautiful clothes for petite women.
Carven’s work over the years was heavily inspired by her trips to locales all over the world, adopting design codes of various peoples in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. She is credited as one of the first European designers to use African and Indian fabrics in her clothes and had a penchant for gingham and stripes. Carven also designed costumes for films, airline uniforms and several wedding dresses. Carven, who got the name of her house by combining the letters of her first name (Carmen) with the last letters of her aunt’s last name (Josy Boyriven), famously said, “If I had been a big beautiful girl, I would have never started my fashion house! “
Madame Carven retired from her house in 1993. She will certainly be missed and her mark on the fashion industry will not be forgotten.
There are few pleasures in life dearer to Miley Cyrus than being naked and using her nudity to draw more attention to herself. And the kind folks at Paper magazine gave the singer another precious opportunity to frolic in the buff for its latest magazine cover.
A naked, mud-covered Cyrus wraps her arms around her pet pig Bubba Sue’s neck as poor Bubba Sue squeals into the camera, her eyes peering longingly into the lens held by a human (Paola Kudacki) who won’t help her get away from Cyrus’ steel grip. Bubba Sue, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve this at all.
In the issue, Cyrus talks about her Happy Hippie Foundation, which she launched to help homeless LGBT youth. And what better way to promote a charitable endeavor than by stripping naked and covering yourself in mud? There is none.
Miley’s Paper issue hits newsstands June 22.
