Karlie Kloss Is the New Face of Joe Fresh

Are you ready to get super fresh? Canadian fast fashion retailer Joe Fresh has announced that supermodel Karlie Kloss will be the new face of the Spring 2015 campaign.

The long-limbed bombshell, who is also fronting campaigns for Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs this spring, is the embodiment of the brand’s minimalist chic aesthetic. “My style is very simple and chic and I think these pieces are right up my alley,” Karlie said in a statement. Initial images depict the super bronzed model with tousled hair and barely-there makeup lying languorously across the floor in front of a white, seamless backdrop dressed in Joe Fresh’s classic streamlined looks, including military-inspired and basic black and white outfits. She also stars alongside male model Henrik Fallenius in shots that show her sporting casual Breton stripes as well as one shot where they both wear double denim and effectively take the Canadian tuxedo to sexy new heights.

The campaign was shot in New York by Steven Sebring and debuts on February 9.

Rihanna’s Shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Looks Pretty Dangerous (Forum Buzz)

Celebrities shift issues off newsstands, whether we like it or not. They also generate a huge amount of buzz whenever they release a magazine cover via social media. Katy Perry debuted her ELLE cover this week via Instagram and earlier today, Rihanna treated her 14.7 million followers to the March cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The cover was immediately brought over to our forums for discussion, which shows the “FourFiveSeconds” singer glowing in natural sunlight shot by Norman Jean Roy. But this isn’t your average fashion shoot; Rihanna swam with sharks during the sitting. Yes, really.

Our forum members were quick to descend on the thread to voice their opinions. “She looks beautiful. Eye-catching cover,” wrote KINGofVERSAILLES, getting us off on a positive note.

“This is so gorgeous. Love the entire thing, even the slightly odd pose!!” ohmycolin added.

Also feeling it was Lola701: “I like that all her covers are very different. She’s very versatile! I’m ready for the Rihanna season. I’m tired of those Kardashians everywhere. I don’t mind seeing Rihanna in all covers as long as there’s no Kardashian.”

But things soon turned sour. “Another tacky cover from US Bazaar,” disapproved MDNA.

Forum member t-rex declared: “This magazine is SO bad. White spaces, Terry Richardson, awful articles and who-cares writers (such as Michael Douglas’ ex wife and Rita Wilson) and poor production value. It needs someone new to revamp it and if not, close it!”

“Tacky! This is not Maxim…” slammed poison84.

Take a peek inside the thread for a preview of Rihanna’s cover story and add your own two cents here.

Kate Middleton’s Go-To Brand Issa Names New Creative Director

Just in time for London Fashion Week, Issa has named a new creative director. The British fashion house is promoting Jamie O’Hare, who’s been serving as head of design since last fall. Previously, the designer, who holds a master’s degree in design from the Royal College of Art, racked up stints at Max Mara, Roberto Cavalli and Chloe, where he oversaw the See by Chloe line. His first collection for Issa will debut for Fall 2015 at London Fashion Week on February 22.

O’Hare replaces former Creative Director Blue Farrier, who was appointed in the spring of 2013. Before exiting in October, she was credited with Issa’s evolution from a brand known for fit and flare dresses favored by Pippa Middleton and Kate Middleton to one that offered a trendier bent that included a looser silhouette, wearable separates and new product categories like swimwear.

Issa originally began in 2003 under Brazilian-born and London-based designer Daniella Helayel. By 2005, celebrities and fashion editors alike were fawning over the label’s signature silk wrap dresses. But it wasn’t until Kate chose a long-sleeve, sapphire blue Issa dress for her official engagement announcement to Prince William in 2010 that the brand received global attention.

Rag & Bone Men’s Fall 2015 Collection Dances Its Way Into Our Hearts

Rag & Bone is doing something a little different for its men’s Fall 2015 collection, and the brand has tapped legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and street dance darling Lil Buck for help. The label is presenting this season’s menswear options in a film (a favorite medium of the label), showing the clothes in motion as Baryshnikov and Buck dance (and sometimes play chess) in pieces from the collection.

If the Georgie Greville directed short proves anything, it’s that this line isn’t meant for sitting and looking pretty. From high kicks to popping and locking, the clothes move with the dancers, showing that they are about as functional as they are fashionable. In moody hues mostly ranging from shades of gray to black, we get parkas, bomber jackets, blazers, tuxedo-stripe trousers with a street flair and enough oversized turtleneck sweaters to shake a stick at. 

It’s definitely a creative and rather beautiful way to show the collection. Watch the video above.
