By now, the September issues are slowly but steadily starting to surface on our forums. We took a peek at the latest edition of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar as the magazine welcomes back Rosie Huntington-Whiteley onto its cover (Rosie’s September 2014 cover is still fresh in our memories). This time around, the British model-turned-actress was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski and participated in a rooftop shoot on location in New York City. On the cover for subscribers (right), Rosie wears a Saint Laurent blazer and chiffon dress while on the regular newsstand cover (left), she works a dress by Prada.

As always, forum members couldn’t wait to debate. “Wasn’t Rosie last year’s model choice for the same issue? I remember the ed was perfect! This also looks really good, let’s see how the editorial will turn out…” miguelalmeida commented the moment the covers surfaced.
“OMG, I’m in LOVE with the actual cover!” Fotoholic24 raved.
Sharing the same attitude was Srdjan: “I love the outfit choice for the newsstand cover and I adore the pastel colours. Of course, Rosie herself is the best part of this issue! She silently became a favorite of mine.”
KateTheGreatest was a fan too, writing, “I’m excited to see Rosie, they do use her a lot but I prefer her than most other people constantly getting covers.”
The negativity soon came flooding in, however. “The styling is terrible, I don’t care if it’s Saint Laurent, the chiffon dress looks cheap. I don’t understand the Rosie love, she’s a terrible model, she missed her true calling as a stylist,” said HeatherAnne.
“I don’t like her face here — it looks too long and exaggerated but I love everything else about the cover,” MyNameIs admitted.
Starring in the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters film and widely know for her comical roles in Bridesmaids and Gilmore Girls, it turns out that Melissa McCarthy is also a super talented fashion designer. The Emmy award-winning actress recently teamed up with Gerard Guez’s Sunrise Brands for the launch of her own fashion line, Melissa McCarthy Seven7.

While her acting career is booming, fashion is still a huge part of her life. “It’s always what I thought I would do,” she stated in an interview with Vogue. “I went into clothing and textiles in college and moved here with [shoe designer] Brian Atwood. I was going to finish at FIT and he made me do stand-up on the second night.”

It looks like the star can juggle both fashion and comedy these days. According to the article, the goal behind McCarthy’s new line is to bring runway styles to women who don’t fit regular sample sizes. The line will range from size 4 to size 28 and will cater to all body types. “It goes beyond the age-old myth that only all-black looks can be slimming, with an adventurous, and equally flattering use of color-blocking.” Her styles will also satisfy “real-world needs.” Think pockets in dresses. “I put pockets in everything! I want pockets inside my pockets,” she said. (more…)
Is there anything that Kendall and Kylie Jenner can’t do? With PacSun and Topshop collaborations under their belt and their new Kendall + Kylie clothing label, the duo have created quite the fashion empire for themselves. Next on their list? A shoe line. Kendall leaked the news on Twitter with a sneak peak photos of the collection.

“I really love it, Kendall told Footwear News. “We’ve been excited about this for a while. We’ve been working on it for about a year, but it’s so cool to see everything in person.”
“My sisters tend to wear heels, but I’m super into flats,” relayed Kendall. But Kylie is all about heels. “I don’t wear flats. Ever. I don’t own a pair, not even gladiators,” she said. “Just a few sneakers—that’s the only time I’ll wear a flat.” Kylie went on to state that heels make her feel more secure. “I’m not as skinny as Kendall, so when I’m in heels, it makes my legs look longer and slimmer.”
Can the sisters see eye to eye for the footwear collection? Apparently so. According to the interview, the footwear collection will include around 70 different styles. “Think strappy stilettos, sharp pumps, pointed mules, flatforms and the odd flat sandal, all done in a streamlined palette to complement the apparel’s overall neutrality.” Whew. We like options.

When asked to describe themselves in shoe form, Kylie said she was a “lace-up thigh-high” and Kendall said she is a “cool boot heel. Or a bright metallic pump, like my Manolos.” As for the sibling with the most shoes? That would be Khloe. “She has a ton — the most of any of us,” Kendall said.
The new footwear collection will debut on Kendall + Kylie in Spring 2016. Clothing will be capped at $250, while the shoe styles will range from $89 to $160. I don’t know about you, but we’re pretty stoked to get our hands on a pair. Read the rest of the interview and see more photos over at Footwear News.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Miley Cyrus sporting long hair, but the singer just announced via social media that she’ll be doing a second Viva Glam collection for MAC, and released a campaign photo sporting long blonde locks with bangs. Hello, blonde Miley bombshell.
“Help to end AIDS with my new @MACcosmetics#VIVAGLAM lipstick available online in North America on 9/8,” she wrote on Instagram. MAC followed up with a post that stated, “@mileycyrus is BACK with a BAM! Our iconic #VIVAGLAM spokesperson has two new surefire hits: a super-sexy bright orange Lipstick and coordinating Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Get the GLAM online and in stores starting in September 2015.”
Her first MAC Viva Glam duo, which included a hot pink lipstick and tinted lipglass, was a huge success. So we can only anticipate that the bright orange lippies will be all the rage for fall. The best part? You can feel good about your purchase since all proceeds from Viva Glam makeup sales goes directly to the MAC AIDS Fund to help men, women and children affected by and living with HIV/AIDS.
And if you can’t wait until September, you can still score her first collection here.
It’s hard not to praise a magazine for giving a model her first Vogue cover, so when Vogue Thailand handed Devon Windsor the cover of its August 2015 issue, it was immediately brought over to our forums for discussion. The Victoria’s Secret regular was photographed by Yu Tsai for the proud moment, posing poolside wearing a little black Louis Vuitton number as she plays with her hair for the camera.
All things considered, the cover gives us major déjà vu. “It’s like a cheap knock-off of Vogue Paris. The font, the layout, the vibe. This to me feels like a VP Feb issue shot by Inez & Vinoodh,” MON pointed out right away.
“I’m not sold on it. Looks like some ersatz VP to me. Glad for Devon, but they have such unexpected model choices,” added Benn98.
In agreement was Bertrando3: “Vogue Paris look-a-like indeed and yes, she looks very uncomfortable.”
Valentine27 later echoed, “I agree with the Vogue Paris similarities. It could have been a nice cover if the hairstyle was different, it ruins it for me.”
Also not a fan of the cover was Nomar. “This looks so cheap,” he announced.
“Hideous cover all thanks to the Photoshop. It’s like a flyer to some Friday night event at a fancy club,” said Urban Stylin.

After waiting for what has literally been decades, British actress Joanna Lumley, who plays the iconic Patsy Stone in Absolutely Fabulous, has revealed that a film based on the Brit cult classic television show will begin shooting in October.
During an interview on a British chat show, she excitedly divulged that all of our old favourites will be reuniting for the film, written by Jennifer Saunders who plays the quirky Edina Monsoon. She tipped that it’ll all be set on location, with the South of France no doubt being the luxurious location of choice.
Speculation surrounding a movie has been particularly rife since early last year after Saunders was spotted attending the Jasper Conran show at London Fashion Week. Perhaps she was doing some much-needed research since the way in which Fashion Week operates is completely different from Ab Fab’s heyday. The once exclusive event is now open to bloggers and not a second goes by without seeing an iPhone in the air as something is Instagrammed or tweeted. We can’t wait to see how Patsy and Eddy have evolved with the changes.
We’ll be first in line to watch the new Ab Fab film and are already guessing which trends the hilarious duo will be donning. While you wait for the big premiere, enjoy some of the best highlights from the original series below.
