Steven Meisel Just Made Jeremy Scott’s Moschino Collection Look Mega Expensive (Forum Buzz)

Moschino has certainly grabbed a few headlines since 2013, due to the fact that Jeremy Scott has been bringing it with the brand’s advertising campaigns. He secured Katy Perry last season and asked modeling sensation Linda Evangelista to be the face of his debut fragrance Fresh Couture. For Moschino’s just unveiled Spring 2016 offering, Scott asked beauties Lexi Boling, Maartje Verhoef, Joan Smalls and Fei Fei Sun to pose before the lens of Steven Meisel.

And the team did not disappoint. “Classic Meisel!! I love this. Love the humor and excess of it all,” commended Wolkfolk.

“YES! MEISEL! It has humor and class…even if the collection was every level of trash!” declared Lola701, pleasantly surprised. (more…)

L’Oreal just solved your sunburn problem. The beauty giant released a high-tech skin patch that monitors UV exposure and alerts wearers when it’s time to apply sunscreen or head for the shade. “My UV Patch,” created in partnership with PCH engineering firm, looks like any other temporary heart-shaped tattoo at first glance. But the patch contains a Band-Aid-like sensor with photosensitive dyes that fade when exposed to UV rays, The New York Times reports.

To assess your exposure to UV rays, you simply photograph the patch with your smartphone and upload it to an app (available on iOs and Android devices). The waterproof patch lasts five days, which is about the span of your beach vacation. It’s disposable, environmentally safe and can be worn on any exposed skin. (more…)

Next to wearing the Fantasy bra, the greatest honor a Victoria’s Secret Angel can receive is fronting the cover of the brand’s swimwear catalog. That coveted opportunity goes to Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk this year. “I was freaking out,” she gushed to People. “I literally thought they were playing a joke on me. I know this is such a big deal, and I am so honored to be selected as the cover model. We have been on so many swim trips but you never go in thinking that is going to happen.”

The 27-year-old graces the catalog cover emerging from the water in a skimpy crochet bikini with the straps undone. Shot by Guy Aroch in Bora Bora, the stunning photograph captures a “natural moment,” Hosk explained. “I threw on swimwear and we had this idea that I would rise up from the ocean. I started untying the swimsuit and it started to fall off; it was a very natural moment. Those are just the kind of moments that Guy [Aroch] likes to capture. We all knew it was a great shot, but I had no idea it would be the cover.” (more…)

Overexposure Alert: Cate Blanchett Lands Yet Another Magazine Cover (Forum Buzz)

You’d think magazines would kick-start 2016 by giving us something new and exciting to deliberate over. Unfortunately, the British edition of Harper’s Bazaar insists on delivering the same old subjects, ushering in Cate Blanchett once again to help shift copies of the February issue. Cate has done her fair share of rounds on some of our favorite fashion monthlies lately, fronting Vogue Australia and W magazine. This time around, the Aussie actress was captured wearing a stunning Erdem and Giorgio Armani outfit by photographer Norman Jean Roy.

Within seconds of the cover dropping, our forums failed to show enthusiasm. “I am beyond tired of this woman. Please let us miss you Cate!!!!” A.D.C. exclaimed in frustration.

“Love Cate and think she’s an excellent actress, but to me she falls under the ‘same old, same old’ cover stars category that we see constantly throughout every year,” Handbag Queen chimed in, echoing the same sentiments. (more…)

Just in Time for Your Health Resolution, Here Are the Best Diet Plans Ranked

From paleo to DASH, there was no shortage of diet plans to choose from in 2015. But sorting through the abyss to find a diet that actually meets our fitness needs was no easy feat. US News did the guesswork for us with its annual ranking of the best diet plans for your health goals. A panel of health experts evaluated 38 diet plans in various categories (weight loss, heart-healthy, plant-based, easiest) to determine the year’s best.

The DASH Diet won out as the best diet overall for the fifth consecutive year, scoring a 4.1 out of 5 for weight loss, healthiness and ease. The number one diet for weight loss is none other than the Oprah Winfrey-endorsed Weight Watchers program. Weight Watchers also emerged as one of the best commercial diets, sharing the top spot with the Mayo Clinic Diet.

When it comes to specific health concerns, the Fertility Diet is considered the best for diabetes, Ornish for heart health and DASH for general healthy eating. It’s no surprise that The Biggest Loser diet topped the list for the fastest weight loss diet, tying for first place with the Health Management Resources program. The MIND Diet, Fertility Diet and Weight Watchers share the top spot for the easiest diet to follow. And Beyoncé will be shocked to learn the Mediterranean Diet was named the best plant-based diet (her beloved vegan diet came in at number seven).

Check out the full list and ranking system here. Your fitness resolution just got a whole lot easier.
