New York Fashion Week: Men’s Still Has a Few Kinks to Work Out

Public School Fall 2015

Men’s Fashion Week is making its debut on the New York stage this summer and the CFDA held an exclusive breakfast meeting about the affair yesterday, which according to WWD, made it clear that there is still a lot of work to do. 

The CFDA is already considering alternate dates for the showcase next year so that it doesn’t fall a full week before the major men’s trade shows like it will this year. The idea is to ensure that show-goers can attend Men’s Fashion Week and the trade shows without having to spend extra days in New York City in between. 

In addition to needing another major sponsor or two, there is also the issue of getting more designers on the schedule for shows and presentations. At least 14 brands have pledged their commitment to the event, though not all the designers will be taking the runway. A few of the men’s brands who have agreed to participate (like John Varvatos and Calvin Klein) won’t actually be showing their collections. 

Obviously, New York Fashion Week: Men’s has a few kinks to work out, but that is to be expected for a new project of this magnitude. Hopefully, it will eventually become a true destination for American men’s fashion.

Hailey Baldwin and Lucky Blue Smith Bring Back the 80s on Jalouse’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

In a sea of recycled cover stars, you’ve got to hand it to magazines that constantly push the boundaries and deliver original content time and time again. Case in point: Jalouse‘s April 2015 cover featuring social-media mavens Hailey Baldwin and Lucky Blue Smith which spread like wildfire across our forums. The pair pose for the trendy French glossy clad in head-to-toe Versace for an 80s-themed cover.

Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members weren’t fans. “Yeah, this isn’t their best. Not a good image at all,” TeeVanity bemoaned within seconds of the cover surfacing.

“Hailey looks so messy and greasy and Blue looks strung out and it’s actually a pretty (unintentionally) hilarious shot,” shared lelaid soon after.

Forum member TREVOFASHIONISTO thought “they look like a young Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi,” which got the rest of us in the mood for some harmless mocking.

“OMG YES. Lol. I love Hailey and she looks lovely but… ELLEN AND PORTIA!” replied ThatGuyPaul.

Also not showing much enthusiasm was nanker_pledge: “I like the concept, but the hair and makeup are really awful, and their facial expression is ridiculous. This obsession that Jalouse has developed with socialites/daughters-of is getting really boring and redundant.”

“Too much shine and hair product, they look dirty imo… but I guess it goes hand in hand with the 80s layout so it works,” described kokobombon.

January Jones Tests Her Beauty for The Violet Files

January Jones is showing off her acting range in the latest edition of Violet Grey‘s The Violet Files magazine. The publication tapped the star of Mad Men (now in its final season) to pose for a series of “beauty tests,” in which she brings to life six characters through the magic of hair, makeup and, of course, a good amount of smizing.

Jones transforms into a “barely-there beauty” with no clothes and little makeup, a hip berry-lipped gallery girl, a sleek and chic boss-type character and a few other arresting personas. Jones also opens up about some of her struggles growing up, noting that it wasn’t until she began to blossom into the conventionally attractive beauty she is today that she began to become more self-conscious. Jones wants to use her platform to encourage young girls to feel confident in themselves, no matter their age or what they look like. 

“It actually wasn’t until I got into high school and started to get quote-unquote pretty that my confidence started to disappear,” she explains. “I want to give the message that girls can be proud and self-assured no matter what funky haircut they have.”

See Jones’ transformations in the slideshow below. (more…)

Forum Members Tired of i-D’s Same Old Cover Formula (Forum Buzz)

It seems like only yesterday that we saw Rihanna on the cover of i-D, but the magazine has moved swiftly on to its next installment. The British bimonthly dropped its Spring 2015 cover earlier this week, featuring Natalie Westling shot by Willy Vanderperre. Natalie, who made a splash this campaign season, scoring fashion spots for Christian Dior and Alberta Ferretti, gives us 90s grunge vibes in a camouflage jacket while pulling i-D‘s signature wink.

Forum members were quick to descend on the thread to see what i-D had to offer this time around. “Oh this is confusing, it feels like the Rihanna issue just came out. It’s not a bad cover, it’s very 90s, it works, but it looks like it’s another youth-oriented issue so I’ll probably pass once again,” commented mistress_f.

“I’ve seen this a thousand times. I knew what it was going to look like before I opened the thread,” added littlekiki.

“Who buys this anymore? I haven’t in about 4 years,” said gossiping, showing no enthusiasm whatsoever. 

The rest of our forum members were left yearning for change. “That black frame [on the masthead] needs to go. Otherwise nice but I’ve seen this like a zillion times already. It almost feels like a never-ending ongoing series of portraits by Willy in different magazines,” noted Royal-Galliano.

“Weird that we all just now felt the need to comment on how old the winking portraits have gotten, but I had the same exact thought upon seeing this. It’s done, over, exhausted, I don’t even want to click on this thread anymore,” HeatherAnne later ranted.

Oxymore was quick to question, “What happened to their creative covers?”

Kelly Osbourne Praises Angelina Jolie for Surgery Op-Ed, Reveals She Has the Cancer Gene, Too

Angelina Jolie just published an op-ed in The New York Times detailing her decision to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes after tests showed that she may be developing early stages of cancer. Two years ago, she underwent a double mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA1 gene, making her extremely susceptible to developing cancer. 

But Angelina isn’t the only celebrity struggling with the telltale gene. Kelly Osbourne came forward to admit that she, too, carries the gene and threw her support behind the actress for making the life-saving decision. “I agree with this 100 percent. I know that one day I will eventually have to do it too because if I have children, I want to be there to bring them up,” she said on an episode of The Talk. “I want to be there to support them in every way I can.”

Kelly knows the struggle of having a parent fighting the disease and sees Angelina’s piece as a wonderful way to keep people informed about the condition. “I have been the child of a cancer survivor, so being on that end as well is really, really hard to deal with, so I’m so lucky to have the brave mother I have that has taught me so much. It’s something I applaud Angelina for because she’s bringing attention to this, and people are now going to go out and get tested for it.”

Let’s hope Kelly can continue to remain happy and healthy!
