Giorgio Armani Isn’t Stepping down from His Label Anytime Soon

Giorgio Armani has enjoyed an illustrious career and through it, has catapulted himself to legendary status. The designer is truly an icon, but after 40 years in business and having celebrated his 80th birthday last July, the question of what the future holds for the Armani label and who will carry on its legacy once Armani vacates his seat is one that is in the back of all our minds – and of course, Mr. Armani’s. 

“I never expected I would be 80 and have the success that I have,” he told Business of Fashion. “The fact remains that you cannot work or stay lucid forever and, of course, I’m going to have to deal with that, too. For now I think I’m still getting along quite well.” Armani hinted at a few options he’s been mulling over in preparation for the future of his brand. One thing is clear, though, Armani isn’t planning on going anywhere anytime soon.

“There are a few [potential] solutions for the future. Selling to a large group, which I exclude, putting the company on the stock market with a board of directors made of strong people, creating a foundation, for example… these are all possibilities,” he said. “However, I think this is something we should be discussing in a few years, or even ten years.”

We guess Mr. Armani plans on working well through his 80s. But when you’re doing something you love, it never really seems like work, does it?

Justin Timberlake Transforms into a Lime for a Hilarious Tequila Spot

Justin Timberlake is a joker and he’s putting his well-known comedic talents to use to help promote his Sauza 901 tequila brand. The singer has released a hilarious short in which he plays a lime, who was once a high-flying big shot at a time when folks needed the fruit to take the bite off a tequila shot. But now that Sauza 901 has entered the game with its smooth formula, limes have become obsolete and all the glamour of his past life has faded.

But the best part about the spot by far is Timberlake’s ridiculous and slightly terrifying lime costume. The singer is almost unrecognizable, adding to the overall hilarity. 

According to Adweek, the idea of the spot inspired by limes falling from grace was all Timberlake’s idea. “Our meeting was literally an hour long, and in that short time we decided to make it happen,” Sauza 901 global CMO Kevin George said. “Did I have some reservations? Absolutely. But at the end of the day, we decided to figure it out and get it done. It’s been a great collaboration, but it largely comes from his idea and the tone he wanted to set for the brand.” 

We think it turned out pretty great. Watch Timberlake kill it in the spot above.

Ryan Gosling Pays Tribute to Late Vine Star by Finally Eating His Cereal

Ryan Gosling is on Vine now, and it looks like he didn’t join just for the sole purpose of goofing around and blessing us with videos of his most perfect countenance. The actor used his first Vine as an opportunity to pay homage to Vine star Ryan McHenry, who passed away this weekend after a two-year-long battle with osteosarcoma. McHenry is the brain behind the hilarious “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” meme and Gosling himself took to Vine to offer a tribute to McHenry and his sense of humor.

In the Vine, we see Gosling pouring a bowl of cereal – and actually eating it. Gosling tweeted some kind words about McHenry to go along with the video. 

The meme McHenry created became so popular that Gosling actually started getting questions as to whether or not he likes cereal. Last month, Gosling (we’re assuming) jokingly tweeted to McHenry that he would never forgive him for the web phenomenon. (more…)

Of Course Some of the Met Gala Looks Were Problematic

You knew it was coming. This year’s Chinese-themed Met Gala seemed dubious to us from the start. While we hoped that the exhibit’s curators would be respectful with regards to showcasing Chinese fashion and illustrating its influence on Western attire, we didn’t have such high hopes for the celebrities once they hit the red carpet

We prepared ourselves for all kinds of tone-deaf costumery from the rich and famous, and thankfully there weren’t too many offensive getups. Of course, there were a few celebs who probably should have thought a bit more critically (or at all) when it came to their outfits.


#Metball @ralphlauren it’s almost time!

Emma Roberts was an early offender, posting an image of her hair and makeup to Instagram before making her way over to the Met. She decided to wear chopsticks in her hair, because, why not? (more…)

Lara Stone Smolders In Tom Ford’s New Fragrance Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

By now, we’ve become used to seeing racy and controversial advertising campaigns from Tom Ford. (Crotch shot, anyone?) However, the brand’s latest release for the ‘Noir Pour Femme’ fragrance opted for a more subdued concept. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Dutch beauty Lara Stone is the face of the seductive new scent and stood before the camera with voluminous hair complemented by a killer smoky eye while clutching a bottle of Tom Ford’s latest offering.

Ad Campaign Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme Lara Stone by Inez & Vinoodh


Are our forum members about to rush out and make a purchase? “I was hoping for something more sexy from Tom Ford,” commented madzedre the moment the campaign surfaced.

“Ugh, the hair bothers me here,” added VersaceVixen009, questioning the hairstylist’s choice.

In agreement was Benn98 who responded, “Me too! I don’t know why they chose to borrow Daphne’s awful 2Quid wig look for this. Certainly don’t find it sexy, trashy…yes. And when I squinted, it looked like she was holding that Moschino bear perfume bottle.”

“The makeup bothers me,” Oxymore wrote, also not showing much enthusiasm toward the overall look.

“What’s the fascinating paradox of the Tom Ford woman? Does it have anything to do with the idea that ‘it takes a lot of money to look this cheap’?” asked tigerrogue.

Lola701, on the other hand, showed the image some love. “She looks great here and I love this campaign. I think she is the perfect Tom Ford woman,” she enthused.

As did KateTheGreatest: “Is she perfect or what? I love this woman, she looks smoking hot.”
